Just some heads up! I won’t be around for a while longer I’ve got some projects at hand and school is really not helping at all, anyway i’ll be working on a artbook project with more artists and I hope everything goes according to plan! i’m excited because i love how it’s going right now even tho we’re just starting this!
stay tuned I will be back soon enough, if you’d like updates on stuff i’m working on i’d suggest you visit my twitter.
repeat and fail until you succeed (:
Seriously there really isn’t any other way you need to repeat the process over and over until you get a good grasp on pretty much everything like color, values, contrast, anatomy, perspective, foreshortening, movement and a lot of other stuff(although this also depends on what you are aiming for your art work)
I’m here to tell you truth it’s a fun path to go through but it is also frustrating and it can get really rough, but if you practice and work your effort will start to show in your work, it takes time, a lot of studying, observation, patience and determination, now mind you that improvement is NOT a linear thing, you’ll get into art blocks, you’ll want to give up, that is a normal feeling and all artists go through that if you ever feel like that i suggest you watch these amazing videos by sycra http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qb0g_gWrNf8 and by sinix http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWkcUxd5elU
Use references (here’s a good one for poses and anatomy http://www.posemaniacs.com/) the internet has literally all of these things at your disposition draw from life, photos and imagination
here’s one really helpful website: http://ctrlpaint.com/
anyway I hope this was helpful! and i wish you lots of luck ( ◜◒◝ )

Hello I’m kai (kaiharuh/kaihartj) 17y.o, i’m the average high-schooler and i like to draw a lot (although i hate it sometimes but who doesn’t am I right?) and also love to dream big about some day working for a company like weta, bethesda,bioware or riot

Are you open for commissions?
Not right now! i might open commissions soon…maybe
Do you do requests?
Depends, i do offer gift art and might accept requests from close friends do draw their characters, you can still leave requests on my ask box if you want tho(if it’s fan art related i might do it) but please don’t feel bad of in any way “offended” if I don’t do it, my time is already short, but i’d absolutely love to know what characters you’d like to see drawn in my style :)
Do you do art trades?
Once again it will depend on many variables, you can still try and message me tho! i might do it we’ll see :)
What software/hardware do you use?
I use photoshop CS6 and a Wacom intuos 5
What brushes do you use?
too many! haha i use a combo of the standard photoshop brushes and some downloaded from all around the web, here’s a great brush library you can get amazing brushes from
