Little side art blog!
Main artblog here!


I focus mostly on fanart here as it's the biggest challenge for me at the moment! Will also hold fandom requests from time to time~

No real schedule for updates as school keeps me busy, but I will try to doodle whenever I can!

Thanks for your continued support!

Please, do not take drawings/repost without permission/credit! Thanks!

7. How often do you use references?
Not very often but I do use them! Like, when I’m simply practicing or studying, especially anatomy since I never had classes q w q 
I use references for scenic backgrounds to understand colors and shapes before I start my own. Or whenever I have to draw something I’m not sure how it goes! 8D;; References are good, it’s all about how you use them!

6. What’s your least favorite thing to draw?
……..Ears. Yeah, sounds pretty stupid but when I was little someone told me I couldn’t draw ears and since then i’ve been convinced I simply can’t draw them. So nowadays, when I have to draw them I just cringe. I spent an entire year hiding them behind hair >v>


25. Do you like to draw in silence, or with music?
Music definitely inspires me! But it also becomes a bit of a distraction if I’m facing a close deadline. The less time I have, the less music I want apparently 8D;; But definitely with music, always.


30. What inspires you to not just make art, but to be a better artist?
Hm. This is a tricky question! Knowing that I can inspire people, cheer them up or give a shoutout to a lot of things through art makes me want to keep trying, and become better; improving as a person as well. My dreams and goals are definitely a biggest inspiration too because if I want to make them come true, I need to work for them. I need to expand my horizons more.

9. How much time do you spend drawing on an average day?
Hm. I do try to at least draw for an hour every day but that doesn’t always happen, so when I do draw, I end up spending 2 - 3 hours that day, at the very least 8D;;

15. How long does an average piece take you to complete?
One thing I’ve noticed is that I’ve become a VERY SLOW artist this year ;;
So I’d say an average piece takes me at least 6 hours (the ‘simple’ ones) . v . ;;;

20. What is the easiest thing for you to draw?
Headshots— Or floating heads 8D;; They’re easy, quick and fun to draw. I love playing with expressions!

21. Do you like to challenge yourself?
Always. In fact, all those “detailgasms” I’ve been doing this last few months have been a challenge, in addition to being commissions! I basically put two of the most difficult/challenging things for me together and went for it! ;;

I absolutely love your Weiss picture! I can tell you worked really hard on it, and it paid off. I especially like the shading on the jewels; amazing job! c:

Holy crap I just saw your Weiss Scnee and it was so fucking beautiful! I love her in, what I think at least [sorry if I'm completely wrong], that outfit that's made to be the character she was based off, Snow White. Is that accurate? And are you planning on doing the other girls as well? :o ALSO DAMN ALL THESE DETAILS, THEY JUST MAKE IT STAND OUT SO MUCH MORE. You're so talented o u o
pants-pastries-polygons-pleasure

dsgfvdfg Thank you so much for the kind words! ;//w//;


Ahah! I actually didn’t think much of the Snow White bit while designing her outfit! I inspired myself mostly on the ice/glass/mirror themes and tried to reflect that on the jewels/bracelet/hair piece, etc… But that is a fun analogy!

I am definitely planning on doing the other girls for sure! Perhaps I can use your reasoning as inspiration for them too!! C’8

Do you have any tutorials or guides on how you color? Your art is really beautiful and I love your style when it comes to coloring!
youaremychoding

Thank you so much!! I’ve been struggling with the way I color lately so those words mean a lot!!

I don’t have any tutorials or guides but I’ll keep your words in mind! Maybe I’ll do a speedpaint video or something soon to show how o w o)/ <3
