What do you dream about most?
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all these questions <3 but I’m going to answer these on my personal blog xD
since this is my art blog and all, I don’t wanna fill it with so many text post~
No harm done! Just gonna move my answers over to my personal, so do jump over there~ And if you do have any more questions, please do send them to that blog :D Though feel free to have art related ones here too cause well lol art blog
Thank you so much again for all these questions! <3 I love them, they’re all great questions and I’m touched and honored anyone would ask me them!
How do you get your art turned into prints and stickers and such?
I haven’t gotten to try stickers yet, so I can’t really recommend a place I haven’t tried personally. You’d have to search around and find something; though I’m thinking of eventually investing in a little sticker printer.
But for my prints I print them out at Costco’s Photo Center!
Just don’t be like me and make silly mistakes with this lol.
- When making your prints, make sure your digital canvas is 300dpi and the exact size of, maaaybe their biggest print? I’m still figuring sizing out, but you want the size right or you’ll have to crop everything. but the dpi is to make sure the quality is good~
- And turn auto-correct off when ordering. Don’t have that.
With keychains you make a sheet of what you want to cut into a keychain! Like, repeated over and over, and then you can print them out at a home printer if you got one that colors nice, or go somewhere like staples and print them out. Just a normal sheet of paper or even a big one if you want. And they laminate there too! So they can do both for you and then you just cut them out. My nana gave me a small lamination presser, which I recommend investing in, cause thats less money for you to pay for every print that you want laminated and you can continue to make them at home! Especially if you have your own printer already!
I was given a tutorial on how to do keychains, so definitely look those up cause they are helpful and your friends~
bookmarks you can either make your own— even just like keychains and have them laminated. OR you can go to websites that do these specifically and have them sent to you.
Honestly, a LOT of this is trial and error. Not everything might be how you want it the first time, but thats okay. Cause once you SEE your stuff printed out and you’re touching it and it looks all legit you’re like “omggggggggg thats miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine” and you feel better for it.
Never be afraid to order samples! Order just a single print or bookmark and see how it looks and if you need changes made. Have some practice runs for keychains, etc. Just give yourself the time, it’ll ease stress that way.
I hope this helps a little~ And you should send basically all thank yous if it did to Kylee, ‘cause she’s the one who’s been teaching me c: I wouldn’t know any of this if she didn’t help me lol
Have you ever visited places outside of where you live?
I have! I’ve been to Boston and Florida, though I was kinda young so I don’t remember either perfectly well, but I’m hoping to go again someday.
I’ve also been to Washington State, and I LOVE it up there. The scenery is drastically different, and I really want a chance to just look around more, since I’d normally go for a convention.
And in my own state I’ve been to a few cities, but the farthest was going to San Francisco in Northern California, another place I seriously love. I’m rarely ever in big cities, let alone ones with such interesting architecture— especially after living in a desert half my life lol, so I love walking around and looking at everything.
What do you find hard drawing the most or which character?
I’m worst with lowerbody cause I don’t understand the structure? I’m still figuring a lot out so nearly everything is hard.
And guy characters. Guy characters are super difficult for me to draw i dont know how anything lol
Any tips on how to draw sonic?
i honestly have no idea i’m still figuring him out too LOL
lots of circles. many many circles. Tutorials are your friends and just play around with loose sketches until you find something that works!~
Is there any characters your currently crushing on?
when am i not crushing on a character LOL
I've actually talked to you once before, but that was a long time ago or less. Question, how do you get into the habit of drawing almost everday or so?
Oh! lol that’s hard to tell with anon on xD
And oh gosh, you just kinda… dooo? If you have an idea draw it. If you get an urge, go with it. Observe everything and think “I wanna try to draw that.” Challenge yourself. Not to see if you CAN do it, but because it’s fun to learn and experiment. Even if you’re constantly doodling or drawing the same thing, it’s practice! And as long as you are enjoying it, continue to draw that eye or facial expression or character.
Never aim to be perfect or exact. Because drawing as to be something you enjoy, and for many it’s a way to relax, and of course, a way to have fun! And escape for others and often times a way to release emotions they had no other way to express.
There isn’t really a secret to drawing almost every day. Like you said, it’s a habit for some. Most of the time people don’t realize they are doing that much. But it’s a very good thing to do! Remind yourself, find inspiration— everyone is different. And it kinda just happens?
I personally ALWAYS carry a sketchbook with me just in case I feel like drawing SOMETHING. A lot of the time I don’t, but just in case. ’Cause personally lately I haven’t been drawing as much as I would like, like after months pass? But that happens too, and it’s not a bad thing. I think something that always got me drawing every day before was 1) a good environment. Not always quiet, but not always busy. Play music if you gotta! 2) Inspiration is what mostly makes me motivated to draw, otherwise nothing comes to mind. But that doesn’t stop me from drawing heads a lot lol.
I hope that’s helpful in some way. I think it’s all about putting your mind into it. Which as you might be able to tell, my minds a mess when it comes to explaining lol
That's cool that you work at Disneyland. I hope to go there one day~ XD
