|Why are you Willow and Ay-u at the same time?|
Because Ayu is my original chosen name XD (when I was a wow japan/anime/manga-fan)
Willow is only a second chosen name haha I hate my real name don't ask for it.
What are the tools you use?
I usually use Faber Castell's graphites sometimes Derwent they are much more soft.
For lineart I use Touch Liners, and Eco College liners(they are cheap and pretty badass).
For coloring I use Touch and Letraset markers, but I like the Touches more. And also different kind of coloring pencils, mostly Bruynzeel, Jolly and Pensan (Pensan is super awesome and super cheap and out of manufacturing sadly).
And what do you draw on?
I use a lotof lotof sketchbooks like ClaireFontaine, Strathmore, Fabriano. I love the papers with extra smooth texture, ClaireFontaine is one of those.
For sketches I use Strathmore's sketch.
For some greater graphite work I use Fabriano. : )
Do you do commissions? Requests? Art Trades?
Requests: No. or rarely. //usually when I want my art block disappear //
Art Trades: Ask me.
Where did you learn all this?
I've got the basics in 2 art schoools but uhhh. urghhh. I think 70% of my knowledge was self-taught from videos and tutorials and copying anatomy books XD
What programs do you use?
Hah! : D I originally used Photoshop, but since wacom drivers recently crashes with PS I had to change to Paint Tool Sai. :C
Do you use references?
I hate using them! :C I mean I did use them ofc when I was lame lol, but I just hate it, references are only for making studies. For me. xD So when Im done with at least 5 studies of a pose, then I can draw it by head. Without using any pictures.
What drawing tablet do you use?
I own a Wacom intuos small :3
Can I use your art?
Sorry, no. :C
Only commissioners who have paid for it can use those for non-commercial things.
