so far I have...I will edit as I go along


Q:How long have you been drawing?

A: I've been doodling since I was 6, I've been digital painting since I was 16 :)

Q:what is your education record Like ?
A:I went to a normal High school. Then, I went to Dawson college in Quebec I enrolled in the 3D animation Program.

Q:What inspires you?
A:I've always been inspired by video games, I love seeing the character/env designes, also Movies and real life events in my life are a great sourse of inspiration. Recently I've been greatly inspired by going on and checking out all the top notch artist there.

Q:What do you do when you have an so called 'artblock'?
A:Sometimes I just keep drawing until I get into the flow again, but others, I just do something else, like playing video games, or other hobbies, I think the important thing is to refresh yourself , and try not get too focuses on 1 little detail or one picture, if it's not working and you trying to make it work, wont make it work. at this point starting over is the best thing to do as you'll probably do a better job knowing what works and what doesn't from your previous tries:) Or you could ask your friends for feedback .

+Art Fundamental

Q: How do I learn Human anatomy, character Proportions ?

A:I would recommend buying any anatomy book to start of. One of my favorite books is ("Figure Drawing Design and Invention by Michael Hampton" and Human anatomy for Artists ) It would also help if you went to live drawing classes just to observe from real people. It wouldn't hurt if you attended any live drawing classes or any character creation classes where they teach you the fundamental of anatomy and proportions.

Do you currently or will soon be taking commissions? I'm sorry if I'm asking in the wrong place but I can't seem to find commission information if you have any on display.

How did you go about learning color? And if there is, what is the quickest way upon doing so?

I would love to know how to confidently choose colors that fit well with each other. How did you go about learning that? Did you read any books, did studies, or attended lectures out there that you used?

I recommend taking an oil painting class. You will learn about how colors effect each other under different lighting scenarios.

You said that you went to a normal high school - did you take any art classes while you were there or did you improve your artwork in college? Many thanks! :)
