Can I ask what you use to digitally illustrate your artwork? I was thinking about buying a Wacom tablet, is that what you use?
Yes, I use a Wacom Intuos 5. It’s a great drawing tablet, but it takes some time to get used to drawing on a screen as opposed to drawing directly on paper. I would love to get a Microsoft Surface so that I can draw on the go without so much equipment. There are other tablets out there, but I don’t know much about them…but I can vouch for the Intuous 5.
Good stuff. Got a couple of questions for you: who are your artistic influences? How long does it take you to color an image?
I have several different influences from all over, and it would take far too long to name them all. I draw inspiration from videogames a lot, cartoons (especially the fantastically done DC Comics animated movies done by Warner Bros.), comics (mostly from the 90s when I was an active reader), anime, and the bevy of awesome artists I follow on both Instagram and Tumblr.
As far as coloring, it really varies depending on the image, but lately my computer has been struggling to keep up, and I’m more so fighting that and cursor lag than actually coloring and drawing. I say from start to finish, it could be a day or so, but I don’t just sit down and crank out images all at once unless its a commission.
