often asked questions for me:
At first, yes all my drawings (and all what you can find and see in it) are self drawn and no smudged photographs
1. Are you really 15?
Yes I am 15 and in april next year Iīm turning 16.
2. Are your horses or linearts traced?
No, I donīt really like tracing, thatīs why I draw all things myself, but of course itīs good to start with tracing, to get the anatomy right
3.Do you take the color out of photos?
No, I donīt do this anymore, I have to admit that I did it in some older pictures a long time ago and think itīs a good alternative to learn realistic colors.
4. Are your horse drawings smudged?
No they arenīt, in the past I made some "bad experience" with smudging..lol
I draw with very blurry brushes! That I donīt smudge with the smudge tool you can see on my drawings, the light and shadow is more defined than the smudge tool can do
(smudging is very uncontrollable and left to the chance, but I donīt except that you can get very good effects with the smudging tool
5. Use a hard brush! Than maybe your horses arenīt that blurry anymore!
I donīt know why you all donīt like blurry horses?
), no I wonīt chance my technique, I worked with hard brushes some time ago ad I have to say I wonīt do it again that soon...xD
Besides Iīm trying to define my horses more and more, indeed with blurry brushes, and I have to say sometime it works better, sometimes not very good
. Thatīs how the life works xD.
6. Did you ever took art lessons or something?
No, I teached myself to draw^^
7. When I buy photoshop, can I draw like you?
You have to practice hard to be good
the programm doesnīt matter and I could do the same with gimp, but I perfer Photoshop CS6 because Iīm used to it.
