(Some of it)
Yep, I am one. Which means I don't celebrate or support things most others do. But, this doesn't make me "perfect" or "better" than anyone, however. Because I'm sure as the heavens I am not. Like the Bible says, "We stumble and fall many times"! I

Anyone who has a complaint with my views or religion, will be ignored, or at least dealt with reasonably. I don't have a problem if people disagree with me, as people are allowed to believe and think whatever they want. I just won't tolerate any insults from smart alecks. Even though the insults can be funny to me.
I do respect others as much as I can. Even with those that tend to insult me or are rude to me, I try to be nice...Well, kind of. If they're hopeless, I'm not going to be wasting my time with rude, ignorant people.
So hi there, my name is Ashley, early 20s, and I'm a self-proclaimed artist and your average gamer. I also like makeup and fashion if you couldn't already tell. xD
I like showing my art here to people, improve, and try to help other artists improve and comment on their awesome art the best I can. Yeah, I may not be the best artist out there, but I'm still an ARTIST, regardless of skill. I mostly do digital art, but I do the occasional traditional work here and there too. I like VARIETY in art too, so I like to draw different things. Not just one subject 100% of the time.
I love meeting other artists and fans of what I like and such. And just seeing their creativity and originality in things!! I'm into several fandoms/franchises, mostly video games. :3
And I DON'T do watch for watch. I'll decide who I watch, I'm already watching a lot of people and groups, so please don't ask me to watch you. I'm more picky and careful in choosing with whom I watch now. And please do not watch me JUST to get a request from me, then disappear. :-/ That's just...really dumb. Or for watchbacks, or for pageviews!!
If you do decide to add me to your watchlist, please be active, if you can. Don't mind if you comment only sometimes and stuff (and I understand we all have lives to attend to) but please try to be active, please. It's not much to ask...Let's me know you're actually interested in what I do. Thanks!
I also don't mind if you thank for the ! And thanks for the visit!
REQUESTS: CLOSED (I won't be taking requests from random people who don't watch me, at least for quite sometime anyway. And PLEASE DO NOT watch me just to get a request out of me!!)
ART TRADES: CLOSED
POINT COMMISSIONS: CLOSED
And from now on, I'll be taking VERY FEW stuff from people. I used to take more than I could handle, so no. I don't like making people wait long periods of time for their stuff, so gotta lessen the workload. Also, life happens. And that's not totally under my control.
STUFF I OWE PEOPLE REMAINING:
2nd POINT COMMISSION FOR -IN PROGRESS- Line art and coloring stage (Having some major trouble with some of the anatomy, but working as hard as I can on it)
POINT COMMISSION FOR Sketching stage
BELATED REQUEST FOR Planning out
What program do you use for your digital art?
I use the latest, Sketchbook Pro 7 for most of my digital art. And I'm trying to use Photoshop Elements 10 a bit more often as well. I just need to keep playing around with it, 'til I'm more confident in using it.
What digital drawing tablet do you use?
Currently, a Intuos5. Love to get a Cintiq someday or something similar...
What supplies do you use for traditional work?
Mostly Crayola products. (Crayola ftw) I also tend to use Sakura Gelly Roll/Signo Uni-Ball white gel ink pens or Bic white-out for "effects", and glitter/ Signo Uni-Ball/Starlightz glitter pens. Also Crayola paint with some acrylic/watercolor paint here and there. And the mechanical or regular pencil.
Do you have any advice for how I could improve my drawings faster and develop my own art style?
Draw every single day or as much as you can. Also, observe other people's drawings. See how the lines connect and why they connect that way to work. And check out real-life photos of people, objects, and animals. Sometimes it's better looking at those than things that are drawn.
When it comes to drawing style, it's something you develop on your own. The best way, though, is to get inspired by what you like of your favorite artists, and just tweak it up to get something cool. Try your best not to copy. Nothing is 100% original, but you can make the effort. And NEVER trace. Always try to do the work yourself even if it doesn't come out perfect. Hope that helps.
