izdrix said: Thanks very much! Looking forward to a better sized version too!
Please send me an ask so I can private-reply you a link! Also, if anyone else wants a link to the playmat-size version of this Ryuko drawing I did, please also send me an ask! (I was going to make it public download but I think I’d rather keep track of who I send it to this time, after those two eBay fiascos.)
The usual conditions apply:
- Please do not use this image to sell. I’m not making money from it, and I’m not giving it out for people to make money from.
- Please do not remove my URL from the image.
- If you get a playmat printed with this image, send me a photo/post a photo and let me know! I’m always super glad to see my art on playmats.
thetravelingmusican asked: I'm amazed by your awesome artwork! Pardon me for asking but do you have any tips for a rookie?
Thank you so much :) To be honest I’m still learning myself so I’m doing all sorts of styles and meiums, and I’m only just finishing up my second year in art school. If I had any tips it would mostly be just to practice hard (but not at the expense of your health; a lot of good artists push themselves to the limit, and pushing the boundaries of your mind and body isn’t something to be rewarded), work from life when you can, for practice (even if you’re going for stylized work, you have to understand the basics; there’s a reason they’re basics, and your understanding of them will show!). My current Illustration instructor, Tavis Coburn, said that style and all that is really just icing on the cake; the bulk of the cake is your fundamentals, so make sure you keep those sharp! I hope that helps.
izdrix asked: Hey, just wanted to let you know I really enjoy your artwork and always look forward to when you add new stuff! Two of my biggest sources of enjoyment are Magic: the Gathering and Kill la Kill, so your work is always particularly exciting. I was just wondering how you felt about the use of your art on a playmat? Your latest drawing of Ryuko with the logo behind her looks really good, and fits well for what I had in mind. Would that be an ok thing to do?
Aw, thank you so much! :D Kill la Kill is my favourite show in a long time, so there’ll definitely be more of that once I get more time. And more Magic stuff too, haha.
Sure! I don’t mind making a mat-sized version, since the version I uploaded is only 72DPI, which isn’t suitable for printing. I’ll make a post or send an ask once I do!
