Hiii!!

I haven't written a journal entry in almost a year. I'm not as active here as I used to be with my old account either.

I want to do a F.A.Q. so if you have any questions concerning my art, please ask!

Art F.A.Q.

Which materials do you use for your pictures?
I use coloured pencils from Caran D'Ace: Pablo for my coloured pencil works. Recently I began exploring Aquarelic Paint, so I draw with cheap water colours now too. For details I use my black fineliners, white, gold and silver gellpen and little nailart-stickers. My current project will be with both coloured pencils and water paint.

How much time do you spend on your pictures?
It depends, bigger pictures take longer than ACEO and coloured pencils take longer than Aquarel.
From scetch to finished:
:bulletpink: ACEO: 4-8 hours
:bulletpurple: A5: 8-24 hours
:bulletpink: A4: 24+ hours


What is your favourite colour to use?
I mostly use dark colours in my coloured pencil works, like carmine, darkblue and indigo. I guess that makes those colours my favourite to work with, since I use them an awefull lot.

Which colours would you like to use more in the future?
Light colours like light blue, light pink and green, pastels and baby teints. Brownish colours, orange and grassgreen are also colours I rarely use...

Who inspired/inspires you to draw (manga or in general)? Question by Kaitourose
I have a lot of artists I look up to. I used to be inspired by MiyaToriaka, for her awesome Pokémon and AaMl-FanArts. AimaiLeafy, Tekuu, Kaitourose, retropiink and Erumi-n are my inspiration for Himitsu no Mahou artwork :aww:

Nowadays I also get a lot of inspiration when I see artwork by: Melonkitten, larienne, Mei-yu, Melanoleuca, oONorchenOo, cherriuki and a lot more artists I watch here and on facebook ^^


What inspired/inspires you to draw (manga or in general)? Question by Kaitourose
My inspiration used to be revolving about creating FanArt (Mainly Pokémon, later on Himitsu no Mahou) for series and shippings I liked. Now I get my inspiration from tiny things like flowers, a starry night, a song I hear on the radio, a single word, Forever Friends (those cute bears *u*), artwork from talented artists. I still like to make FanArt for Himi though ^^

Do you think that your inspiration has changed the past 5 years? Question by Kaitourose
Yes and no. Since Pokémon isn't my main source of inspiration anymore I ought to say yes, but I still get inspiration from shippings I like. Even if it's different. Himitsu no Mahou has been a source for around five years though, I think, so that answers the question with yes.

Aside from exploring water paints and experimenting with colours are you planning to explore/experiment on more areas? Question by Kaitourose
Yes *u*

I really want to improve drawing perpective, anatomy and poses. I think I really suck at that. I also want to improve the way I draw eyes for my characters and I would love to work on character design for original characters. I would love to create characters I can build some kind of story around.

Colours are also a big issue actually. I want to learn how to work with lighter colours and create paintings which look different from one another. I don't want to redraw the same over and over again and I think colours are a very important factor.

I also joined a lovely project in the :icongermanshoujoartists:-group. I am going to make one of the ACEO cards for a little Adventcalendar. I have so many ideas already *u*

Please check it out!

Hello! I'm twenty-one years old, natural blonde and I love to draw for fun :iconblushyplz:

I am happy to have found an amazingly sweet guy who supports me with everything I do. Even drawing. He inspires me to try new things and draw what comes to mind. Music is also a big source of inspiration.

I have a lot to learn when it comes to drawing and colouring, but I hope to get the critique I need to improve both.

Thank you for visiting!
