hiii! i really like all of your art it is very good and the style is QT and i could go on and whatnot but! i was hoping if you had any tips on coloring and poses? i am really not satisfied with my own art :(
If you browse around my tumblr and some of my tags, I’ve answered similar questions, and sadly I don’t have many good resources for this sort of advice.
I will definitely keep this in mind and when I have some free time draw up some fun little guides and stuff!
What's your favorite thing to draw?
FAVORITE THINGS TO DRAW
so what do you do when you mess up? Just make that particular line thicker?
A mix of things. Work with the mistake, use correction fluid, I once redrew a particular panel separately and edit it in, multiple times traced the whole page with a light box and started over, or in most cases just leave it and adjust it in photoshop if it’s like a misplaced line or something I can erase. It just depends on the severity and how much work’s been done to the page already.
have you ever messed up when you were inking?
I'd like to say that I as well subscribed to Slipshine for two people, and that you are one of them. Momo's the other.
Well thank you!
For your next example process could you show your coloring process? I loved seeing the "How to draw Claire" you linked and your drawing process you showed.
If I color something again I will! I don’t usually color so usually it’s a trial-by-error process because I’m figuring it out as I go.
Next time I color something I’ll try to screencap or document it as I go!
this isn't a question but just wanted to let you know you are one of the two artist that made me get a slipshine Sub.
Can you draw requests; as in, do you feel that you are capable of portraying the abstract concept that is to make a request? Also, as the one Anonymous asked (you appear to have misunderstood them), are you yourself capable of requesting drawings: is that something you can do?
Ohohoho, a wise guy!
You've said before [I think] that its illegal for toons and humans to date/get married/ have kids. Is this law founded in reason [like are kids who are a mix of both really likely to have medical issues or something like that] or is it more of a "this is not currently socially acceptable" kind of a law [like gay marriage]. Are people punished if they're found out? What about mixed kids/adults? Are they ever punished [by the law or otherwise] for being what they are?
Naw, it is legal. Someone asked once if it was illegal, though, so that’s where the confusion probably came from.
Do you like drawing fall and winter garments on your characters? Oh my gosh, Carolina and Kelly with little mittens and fuzzy hoods would be adorable, in my wee opinion.
I LOVE fall and winter clothes! They are my favorites! It’s currently late August in the comic and I am happy about being able to draw fall and winter clothes within 4-6 chapters.
aww man not even claire and some tasteful nudity?
Man, I’m getting a lot of questions this morning!
I don’t mind drawing pinup or nudes. I just don’t want to right now, especially not of these characters.
When Roger recommended Claire do adult entertainment, did she ever try?
Nope. She’d hate that. She interned with Roger initially while trying to get through college.
Have you ever drawn porn of your Love Me Nice characters?
Just a single doodle that is craptacular.
The subject is just too friggin’ weird, I don’t wanna see what is essentially Mickey Mouse boning down, so I ain’t gonna draw it.
You have a really nice and distinctive style, especially with lips and noses. I like the roundness and softness of it. What inspired this way of drawing, mostly?
Personal preferences, really. It stems from me preferring organic shapes (to the point that I avoid straight lines) and finding soft shapes friendly and inviting, especially on faces.
These are also distinctions I tend to be attracted to in people, but the art I tend to like — having grown up anime/manga and inspired art— features people with very different faces and shapes, so I guess I instinctively try to fill that void, haha.
