meguskus said: Hi! I love you and I'm honored that you're following me back. :3 My question is whether you're making any money with your art. Are you freelancing, doing commissions, tried applying anywhere? I've noticed that a lot of very skilled artists don't get the recognition they deserve and can't get a job, so that's making me pretty worried about my future.
hahaha my goodness, well thank you.
Also yes, I’ve been making a bit off of freelance and commissions - nothing super well-paying yet, but I’m happy. I know it can be daunting, what with the competition and even just wondering if you’ll make it at all, but just push to be the artist you deserve to be and the work will follow - I can promise that.
If there’s anything more specific you’d like to know then feel free to ask, if I can’t answer then I think I can at least direct you to someone who can ;>

hahaha oh my, dearest anon, that’s quite a series of questions. alright alright, let’s see:
I started out with Photoshop’s default brushes and Kekai’s set. They aren’t suited for flashy techniques, so you’re forced to just paint, which is a wonderful thing. I still use them for practice. However, if you’re a touch more experienced, I use an abomination conglomerate set of Jaime Jones’, Kekai’s, Thomas Scholes’, Min Yum’s, and some of my own brushes. Really it’s all about creating, specializing, and learning how to use your tools.
I use Photoshop CS6.
Everything you ever draw and see is in perspective, so yes. It’s a very important foundation to sharpen and hone.
I don’t stream because I’m lazy, but it’s been requested a few times. I’ll begin to consider it heavily when I start putting my new computer together over the next month or two.
When I decided I wanted to be a painter I saved up everything I had and bought myself a Cintiq, which I still use. I’ve also used an Intuos tablet, and found that the differences in using either are almost entirely negligible after acclimation.
:] I do hope that helps, feel free to ask for clarification or explanation if any of it doesn’t make sense.
