Anonymous asked: Your art is some the most beautiful pieces I've ever seen! And your comic is the best! How long have you been interested in drawing?
Oh!! Thank you so much!!
I’ve been drawing since I was eleven, but it wasn’t really anything serious. So… about 15 years? I drew every day, but didn’t really have much direction. I hope these coming years bring more improvement and goodness.

Anonymous asked: your coloring is pretty!!! do you have any tips for a decent drawer but bad colorer? any tips about brush settings etc?
Hello! Thank you so much for thinking my coloring is pretty!! I’m glad you like it, I try to go pretty simple with colors because I’m honestly not very knowledgeable in them.
I use pretty thick outlines in black and then color in lines (sai > preserve opacity setting on the lineart layer) while still leaving a lot of the black outline. I’m kind of fickle on where I’ll color and when I’ll not, there’s no real set motion to it.
Backgrounds I paint, but I’m trying different things to see what works best. Right now, I use a brush on Sai that has Crusty + Large Grain for textured backgrounds, but everything else is honestly flats or just a round brush. Here’s my background brush setting!
If you use Photoshop instead, try out these brushes I posted recently! They’re for CS5!
