"How did you find your drawing style ?" — I get this question a lot. Watch this video by Fran Menese to find out how it’s important to draw a lot to find your own style. This video is perfect. And follow her blog, she’s an amaziiiiing artist ! 

A number of years ago, while suffering from a mild case of scribe’s fever, a form of neurasthenia common among the intelligentsia of that time, I decided to spend the month of August in the spa town of Nebelsbad below the Alpine Sudetenvatz and had taken up rooms in the Grand Budapest, a picturesque, elaborate and once widely celebrated establishment. I expect some of you will know it.

just discovered your art and it is so amazing wow. i love how you blend your colours together so seamlessly! if you don't mind, could you share your blending technique? i just started painting on photoshop too and i don't really have an efficient way to blend colours c;

HELLO! ヾ( →㉨←)ノ

I don’t exactly have a technique to blend colors. Some brushes blend better than others.

"Watercolor" brushes tend to blend well together, yet they still have a nice edge. If you want to invest a little, I would recommend Kyle T. Webster’s brushes.

However, I would also suggest going through DA and downloading some artist brushes. I found this set tonight. It has a nice variation of soft and lightly textured brushes that might do the trick:

Hello, I admire your art! I specially enjoy the way you color :) I really dig the 'gradient'-look that the colors have in your illustrations. It gives me a happy and warm feeling. I have a difficult time in choosing color schemes. I find that when I color, the colors I use tend to clash or look dull. Do you have any tips on making different colors work together in order to create an overall appealing appearance? Also, what application do you enjoy using the most when you make digital art? (^u^)

HI HI! (ノ^∇^)

I suppose I can link you to all those color theory tutorials and such, but in all honesty my greatest inspiration for colors is …food. I’ve reblogged a lot of food/desserts and nature. Their purpose, although they appear to be self gratifying aesthetics, is for color inspirations. 

Looking at food, especially desserts, is a good starting point for me:

They all have this soft pastel quality that’s in my artwork.   It has a lot to do with observing how these colors changes in shadow and light and how they work together. Because of their soft tones, they tend to work well together. In the end, if it’s still dull, I would bump up the vibrancy of the entire artwork. 

I also use Design Seeds. The site offers a lot of gorgeous palettes alongside photos, which I find it extremely useful since I can observe how they pull out these colors out and how I can apply it to my art. 

And I’m using CS5. I used to use paint tool Sai. Sai is nice with its simplicity but photoshop … brushes…

I hope that sort of helps!
