Is there any chance that you will be at the Anime Expo this year?
I’ve never done a show before or been to any con as an exhibitor, but that will change this year. Anime Expo seems like a huge commitment for me since this will be my first year (and also seeing as how I’m located in Virginia and Anime Expo is in LA), but I will be trying to branch out though. I guess that’s more than what you wanted to know…so long answer short, no unfortunately.
Just wanted to say that I found u while looking for inspiration & now I am a big fan. Recently got back into digital & I am on a learning journey. I would like to know what tools you use? Do you sketch by hand/software? Color by hand/software?
I’m glad that I could help you pick up drawing digitally. I just want to preface this by saying, don’t get discouraged if things don’t come out how you envision them at first…I’ve been learning pretty much all on my own since like 2009, and I’m still learning new things with everything that I draw. I used to use GIMP (and its free!), but I currently use Photoshop CS4. I have CS5, but I just personally prefer CS4. I do everything primarily in Photoshop, from sketches to the colors and inks. I found some great pencil brushes a while ago from here which also includes some inking brushes that I use as well.
There’s no magic to any of it…as I still sketch traditionally as well. The only thing that I can honestly tell you is practice…practice, practice. Hope that helps!
I absolutely love your artwork, not only do they have beautiful colors, but the women are so real. Their bodies are so real, they are not just stick figure models and not to mention the fierce hair. They bring out my inner bad ass.... Thanks for the great artwork.
No, thank you for loving my scribbles and sketches!
Hey man I'm also an artist, and I'm just curious how do you go about making your prints, do you use a home printer (and if so which one) are do you use a print on demand service?
I wish I had a printer capable of making prints, but I don’t. I tried using Print On Demand services before, but I’d much rather see the quality of the prints that are eventually going to have my name on them to make sure that they’re great. I also used to use FedEx Office, but their quality of their printers aren’t that great in my opinion. I use Office Max currently. Their glossy and semi gloss paper is phenomenal and so is the print quality. If you have one in your area, I highly suggest you check them out. Just get one print done to see if you like it or not, and then go from there. Hope that helps!
Fabolous feat. Mack Wilds & Tiara Thomas | Situationships
This is the realest most relate-able song I’ve heard from Fabolous. Plus is has Michael from the Wire on it. Sounds like a win/win. The Martin & Gina exchange at the end of the song just pulls it all together.
