Anonymous said: I love your art sooooo muuuuch!!!! OAO Do you mind telling me your journey to being an artist (childhood interest in art, who inspired you later, etc)? Did your family support you going to school for art?
Aww thank you so much anon!!! ; v ;
Hm… I’ll try to make this as short as possible.
Basically back then, when dial-up internet and before, I didn’t have any ways on watching anime or even have art books. When I get chance I was able to get How-to-draw manga type books…but i just look through it once and not bother actually using them for reference for some reason… the time i only get to see anything remotely to anime was like maybe once a week if i can. the first anime i really liked was cardcaptor sakura… that was back 1998 (yes i didn’t grow up with sailormoon).
And then most likely just drew a lot. i was very secretive about it. around 2002 i remember making my first ocs haha. then coz of that i drew more and more. at that time i was able to get copies of animes in cds and such… one of my fave top artists until now are: Takehiko Inoue (Slam Dunk), Yusuke Murata (Eyeshield 21), Takeshi Obata (Death Note), and others…can’t seem to remember aside from those 3.
I remember the time when i wanted to draw more anime, my dad was kinda against it. my sister stood up for me and in the end dad didn’t bother me anymore after that. but yeah it took awhile for my dad to end up supporting me (mom didn’t really mind either way). in 2005 that’s when i moved to canada and then also when i learned more about digital art, gaia, da, etc. i still drew no matter what. everyone that drew basically inspired me and still inspires me until now. i am always grateful to those that look up to me with art and complimenting me (i’m still not used to it until now, i get really shy/embarrassed ^^;; )
i’ve liked a lot of different series from day 1 until now. i only get to draw something when the series is still going on….same with motorcity, it stopped so i stopped… gravity falls stopped a bit and i haven’t really followed the new eps yet, etc.
I don’t want to stop drawing. not ever.
i hope that’s short enough hehe
