hey. so I saw your portrait of Jennifer Lawrence (which I LOVE) on Devianart and I saw that you could get it as a case for a phone, but I was wondering if there way anyway of getting it as like a picture to put in a frame (like a way I can just order the picture or whatever.) I really would like to frame it and put it in my room! XD
Hi Metaa!! I LOVE YOUR ART! could you please tell us about yourself, like how old are you, where are you from and what do you study and etc???
Hi! and whoa it’s very surprising (and flattering) that anyone would really want to know these things heh, but if you’d like to know something in particular - don’t be shy to ask, I will most probably be thrilled to answer you!
But as to your questions I’m 18, I live in a small Central-Asian country and I am a sophomore in the American University of Central Asia, majoring in International Relations and Comparative Politics ヾ(๑╹っ╹๑)
I'm a big fan of your art, it is amazing. I found you coincidently when Korra was coming back and I couldn't be more glad. You have this way with color that is just inspiring and your line art pops out just as much. With this is mind what do you do when you're going through a rough patch? When it seems like nothing you draw is good enough, when your lines aren't sharp enough nor gentle enough? It seems like nothing I draw anymore is good enough at the time. Do you have any advice?
Thank you so much!!
Oh man, I feel ya, I’m going through a similar thing right now.
I know that it sounds very typical and lame because all the artists keep saying this and it doesn’t always work, but just keep drawing. Practice makes perfect, so don’t get discouraged.
And I know at times you get so tired that nothing seems to be working out, but just don’t stop. Unfortunately drawing isn’t like riding a bicycle and if you don’t draw for a long time your eyes and arm will forget the reflexes you have developed, and all the time you’ve spent drawing will go to waste. So just keep going, fight through the block and draw anything.
But if you can’t seem to be productive and end up disliking your work you can do 2 things: take a break or do some studies!! Studying is always useful and doesn’t necessarily require much artistic input - just find an anatomy book/tutorial and follow the guidelines, or try to do some figure drawing. Or just try to experiment.
All in all just don’t get discouraged. Everyone goes through this. Trees don’t bear fruit all year long. You just have to wait it out, but try not to let the waiting time go to waste :) Be strong and keep pushing!
Just try to look at these, look at related videos on youtube, try to find tutorials by your favorite artists and try to follow the guides, while not hesitating to add in your own ways and your own flavors. It’s literally all about experimenting until you find your own flow.
I just came back from Thor 2 and holy shit it was so BEAUTIFUL!!! The scenery and the special effects were breathtaking!!!
