Your arts are so good! They're my favorite! I was wondering what programs do you use? And if it's computer, do you only use mouse? Or do you use a tablet? That is if you want to share. Thank you!

Thank you so much! I use just my toshiba laptop (paint tool SAI for most of it, then Photoshop CS6 for any post-processing) and I use a Wacom Bamboo tablet. :)

Your 2007 drawing looks pretty good to me :3 how old were you when you started taking drawing seriously/ started practising?

*shudders* ugh. That drawing…. It’s not that it’s so bad anatomy-wise (at least everything is sort-of in the right place), but what the heck was I thinking, making it that color? X__x

And I think I was around 14-15 years old. I drew some in middle school, but it was basically me copying other people’s styles, trying to find my own. When I hit high school, I really started to try and develop my own style without referencing others.

i really love ur art style. i just started drawing a while ago, and i cant picture being this good. when did you start drawing?

Firstly, thank you so much! I’ve got a long way to go, but I’m happy with my style so far. X3

Secondly, you WILL be this good, and probably even better. The key is to draw. Draw everything, and draw it often.

I started drawing when I was pretty young, but I didn’t actively pursue it, ya know? It was just something I did for my family or to impress my friends. I didn’t actively start practicing until about 2007.

And, Ok. I can’t believe I’m about to do this, but here’s how my “style” looked back then:

*cringe* Yup. As evidenced on my DA page. Compared to now:

I’ve come a loooong way, and so can you! Just keep drawing, and drawing, and drawing…

good God i LOVE your zutara art, thank you so much for sharing your talent!! <3

>////< THANK YOU SO MUCH! <3 <3

Hi! I just recently came across your art, and I just wanted to say that your style is beautiful. I'm really inspired by you! As someone who only starting drawing a year ago, I'm still learning and hoping to improve as an artist. People like you make me want to keep trying to get better! (also, you got love for zutara which is a plus)

*BLUSH* Thank you so much! Oh my gosh, that’s the sweetest thing anyone has ever said to me. As a growing artist myself, I couldn’t be more flattered! I inspire someone oh crap wha tdo I do wh at do Ido OH! If you wanna see something/someone that really inspired me to get better, check out THIS VIDEO (and his other videos). He’s done some awesome work, and gives great advise in terms of how to get better, and how to practice drawing. He also does some anatomy and color theory tutorials that are beyond useful. Definitely helped me! :D
