I've done a combination of traditional and digital art in the past, but for the past couple years, my main medium has been drawing and paints. My style would be closest to realism, mainly because that's how I was always taught, so I just incorporate that into what I want to do.
I guess I'd have to say most of my influences are from my three favorite things in the world--movies, music, and anime.
Inspired from "It's OK" by Land of Talk
Ramona and Scott from Scott Pilgrim vs the World
Chibi (singer from the Birthday Massacre)
White Queen from Alice in Wonderland
Angel (some random raver I met one time)
I also have to admit, I'm also pretty good with animals as well--
My old Cat, Pounce
I've also started getting into making some cosplay props like the longinus lance and Kalyna Ann from paper mache and cardboard and tape and paint and STUFF-- but don't think that art media would suite this blog lol :P
Some of my favorite influential pictures (basically what I wish I could create *L*)
A few of my favorite artists are
Jhonen Vasquez (love his crazy style in JTHM, Squee, and I Feel Sick)
Christy Lijewski(I've always adored her style in general --the way she draws, the coloration, the shading--and even her cosplays *L*)
At the moment, my goal is simple, to get into the swing of things and just start creating. It would be nice to eventually be able to create a web comic, but at the moment I just don't have the time, and my form of media takes hours to do. Not to mention, when I've tried to draw the people my characters are based off of, I feel I fail to the fullest extent--probably because I have the goal to make a glorified version of these people, and am not meeting my own expectations and partially in the fact that I just tend to draw girls more than guys, or guys with feminine looks to them.
But anyways, thank you for your time ^_^
