Hmm…

whenever I start up commissions again, I might pick up making custom sculpey clay figurines (1-2 inches tall) to sell.

Would anyone be interested in that?

HOWREFERENCESWORK

POR SIEMPRE!

Reference is important for LEARNING.  If you know you can’t seem to get something right, reference it.  
You’re ability to recall how something works without the use of reference is what you’re trying to achieve.  Don’t mistake this as saying “You always need reference.”
It doesn’t mean you suddenly stop drawing from imagination as a result.  In fact, now you can do more thanks to have LEARNED from reference.

Fun fact: Artists are always learning. They never stop.

6:

Draw a same pic with your dominant and non-dominant hand.

7:

Do you have any OCs?

8:

Do you listen to music when you draw? Favorites?

9:

Favorite thing to draw?

10:

Least favorite thing to draw?

11:

Draw a pic of yourself like how you look just now.

12. Any weird artist behavior you admit doing?

In my spare time, I doodle really awful tattoo ideas that no one should ever pay money to get on their bodies

Much like my leaf tutorial this is another crazy simple guide but it might help a few of you! I love to get a lot of thumbnail type ideas down first before I settle on something final so I like to use this quick method as a way of exploration, basic research into what I’m trying to achieve and a means of creating variety in my work (I hope!) On the flip-side I know a lot of people struggle with creating environments in general, this could be a good way to ease yourself into drawing them without getting too bogged down in details and technicalities, just blasting your ideas down onto a canvas!
