How long have you been drawing?
Over a decade! Ha, makes me sound old…really though I started teaching myself how to draw in middle school and here I am today! Woah! :D
How much time do you spend drawing on an average day?
I’d say an hour and half to a couple hours is kind of my average. Usually I never exceed 3 or 4 hours though a day…especially with my tendonitis in my arms that’s a bad idea.
Are you confident about your art?
Yes I am. I have always loved to draw, and yes long ago when I was younger I really wanted the fame and the acknowledgement. Now I draw for me though, and I enjoy the fans that like my work and adore the supporters that hire me or pledge to me on Patreon. Doing art for me and not because I want it to be recognized, although not always an easy mentality to maintain, has really helped my confidence in my art.
I also REALLY think that doing traditional art only has immensely helped my confidence in my art too. There is no take backs, there is no undo. I just have to STICK WITH THE PIECE and finish it! I like what I draw, it’s cute and floofy! Am I perfect, no. Can I see my flaws in anatomy in pieces, yes. Do I keep going and finish the piece anyways, yes. Will I always strive to do better next time, yes…it’s what keeps me going.
How long does an average piece take you to complete?
Okay so I am a fast worker. Again I think I have my desire to stick with traditional mediums for that. An average piece, let’s say a Cutie Critter piece with no background (something I do a lot of) takes me about 3-4 hours to complete. That’s sketch, ink and wait to dry (usually over night), then color. Portraits take me a bit longer, probably more like 4-5 hours.
Do you like to draw in silence, or with music?
I’ve been only drawing with music lately. Especially upbeat and catchy jams! I have been utilizing the Happy Hits and Confidence Boost playlists on Spotify!
