Anonymous ASKED:
Some of your arts reminds me of elioli? Is he inspiration to you maybe ?

By maybe I think you mean elioli is an inspiration to a ton of artists, myself included! I’ve also been looking at a bunch of works from Mary Blair and Eyvind Earle lately. Trying my hand at keeping it simple and not overwork things, which is something I tend to do a lot….! 

(Also a quick and friendly reminder that elioli isn’t one talented guy, but a pair of very talented twin sisters!) 

The first fleshed out post in who knows how long…..!

  • A piece of advice to all my followers: Don’t fret about if you need fancy materials or programs to make great art - a pencil and paper and a little bit of time will do wonders for you if you allow it to. Also, references and studies, so important!! Everyone’s art starts off looking like poop, there is no way around this so no need to rush it. 
  • You all have to listen to this song: Vance Joy- Riptide has been my jam lately.

OKAY TIME TO TAG PEOPLE: I’m very lazy with this so if you guys find it fun to do go right ahead and info away! 

Here’s a batch of speedpaints I did over this past week, the last one based off of the previous speedpaints merged together. It’s pretty relaxing! 

I’m trying to speed up the time it takes for me to finish digitally, aka holding back on all those overlays :’D.

Need more variation….! Quick little break doodles every now and then from the monitor, otherwise my eyes will tire out a lot faster. 

It might be a while before I have any fleshed out digital posts, so I’ll keep my blog alive with sketchbook draws every now and then! Adult life is busy @__@;; 

I really need to get back to my new years resolution of drawing more guys u__u;; 

I haven’t posted anything in the last little while, sorry life has been super busy! I’ve got a number of asks piling up in my inbox which mostly consists of mediums/programs used and whatnot, so rather than replying individually I set up an FAQ over here!

On a sort of related note, thank you to everyone who’s sent some very sweet messages in the past little while! I don’t reply to everything (because I forget orz) but I do read them and really appreciate the support!!
