It was self taught, plenty of anatomy books, but! references help a lot, really, to see where muscles are and how bones move, etc
I am not sure how to reply to this anon, let’s see… hmmm I’ve been drawing since I was little, but took it seriously until I was 14-15, you know, learning anatomy mostly.
I kept a ‘consistent’ style from then until I was 21-22 when I started to work with digital tools, such as PS and it was then when I saw a huge improvement, also my style changed, I tried to work with a more realistic style.
So I wouldn’t know how long it took me, there were gaps of time where I didn’t see any improvement but to be fair I didn’t practice much, so I guess, and this is approximately, around 5 years with my current style.
hola! si, soy mexicana, por costumbre ya sabes, uno contesta todo en inglés aquí!,
Si, mi url se refiere al verbo latín conducir, guiar, pero no empezó tal cual. Hará unos mhm…. 12 años, mientras leía un libro me topé con varias frases, entre ellas spiritum ducere: to lead the breath = to go on living/live, to draw breath . Y ese fue por varios años mi nick, al tiempo lo dejé en Ducere. En el libro, la frase es usada para referirse a alguien al cual tratan de traer de la muerte,y en ese tiempo necesitaba un recordatorio constante, y este me pareció uno bueno, fuerte, adecuado. No sabría muy bien como explicarlo, spiritum ducere, inhalar la vida, que soy lo suficientemente fuerte para inhalar la vida de vuelta en mí
I kidnapped her cat, sold her soul to satan and then sacrificed my own soul to seal the contract.
Coffee, you’re satan, that doesn’t count.
and mhm anon, we artists are humans, and no special snowflakes, you want to befriend us? go ahead and talk to us. It applies the same principle when it comes to befriending people in general. We connect with some people and we don’t with others, but you can start by talking to us? we don’t want to be intimidating, we’re people.
Coffee is a great person, and a dear friend, but art had nothing to do with us becoming friends. we’re people that befriended each other like usually people does, If I remember we started talking about something random!. try talking about an interest in common?. She writes fics and I love them, and I draw, and we both love some characters in common, and we were in the hetalia fandom, but as time goes like in any other friendship you find other things to share, that simple.
Also I’m shy as fuck! I give my friends here the credit because I’d live in a shell, but feel free to drop a message, we don’t bite.
and yes I sold my soul to her as well, but oh well…
