If you haven't heard already, I won't be making tutorial video until late November because of my exams. I want to put all my energy on my studies right now, so I'm postponing all the tutorial video. But, I'm not going to stop making videos. In fact, I'll keep uploading every other week a time lapse video or something that doesn't take me a few hours or even a week to make. Tutorials take ages for me to make. With that said, I hope you guys are OK with this :)
FAQ [Frequently Asked Questions]
1. What materials do you use for your drawings?
I use Copic Ciao markers and Touch Twin Markers, Quill Multiboard white paper, 2B and HB Pentel and Faber-Castell 0.5 mechanical pencils and Faber-Castell PVC-Free Space Eraser (Cool name) and I use Uni-ball Signo white fineliner
2. Did you go to any art school or academy?
No. I am taking Studio Arts in senior high school right now. It's not from that class that I learned what I know. I am learning new things from the class, but so far, not to do with fashion illustration or manga drawings. I go to a regular high school, so it doesn't specialize in art.
3. How do you draw the models? Do you use any templates?
I started out by tracing models from magazines which is harder than it sounds, but once you get the hang of it, its pretty easy. Then of course, I searched all types of videos on YouTube and some sites as well on Google, which unfortunately, I don't remember.
4. How old are you?
I am now 17 years old
5. How long have you been drawing?
I'm pretty sure I started drawing at 6. That's probably my oldest memory of me drawing. I got into manga drawings when I was 11 years old, I started teaching myself how to draw manga when I was 13 years old. I started developing an interest in fashion design also when I was 11, but I pursued that interest or taken it further at the age of 14. So, I would say I started drawing fashion illustration at the age of 14.
6. Where do you get your inspiration?
I get my inspiration from music, photos on Instagram, fashion trends, things that I love. There are times where I am just in an Artist's Block and I feel really brain dead where I can't draw. Or I force myself to draw and it never turns out to be something I like. I am currently in an Artist's Block which has been going on since late October 2011, and I am finding ways to get out of it. I'll keep you posted on how I break through it :]
7. Do you have any links or books you can recommend?
Definitely! Fashion Illustration by Anna Kiper and Fashion Poses for Fashion Illustrators by Sha Tahmasebi are two books that I own at the moment. I'm hoping to get more. These two books are very helpful if you're a beginner or even if you want to be a bit more advanced.
this is a very basic tutorial but seriously, this tutorial helped me when I was just starting. Hopefully it helps you too.
This was a newly found website that I heard about from 555000rocky http://youtube.com/555000rocky
