My friend sent me a link a week or so ago to this site. I finally got around to checking it out today, and I highly recommend anyone who is feeling a little stuck with their art, or those who are just starting out as an artist to check this site out.

There are a ton of video resources explaining various things about art. It’s all done digitally, but the terminology used and the way that he paints can very easily be applied to traditional art too. He explains the basics very well and never uses overly flowery language, so it’s very easy to understand.

And, if you have never used photoshop before, but wold like to, he has a digital 101 set of videos that explains the interface; only stating things that you absolutely need to use in the program.

The video’s range in explaining digital art to those who don’t know, to teaching basic techniques. And not only does he show techniques and explain art terms, but he also has sections talking about habits to maintain and how to focus and maintain a positive mindset when it comes to your work.

I watched a lot of the video’s today and I can say, as someone who has gone through art school, that he is very good in his explanations and provides knowledge that is taught in a semi professional setting. Best part is, they’re all free!

If you’re having any issues at all regard your art, or you need to brush up on some fundamentals, please check out these videos!

I’m excited with all the news about Hyrule Warriors, but honestly all I want is for Nabooru to be playable.

Hi everyone! I sort of have a store update.
Although I don’t have any new products available, I have changed the prices of the ones currently available.
All 13x19 inch prints are now only $20.00 while all 8.5x11 inch prints are $10.00. Shipping in the u.s costs $3.00, however it costs a bit more to ship outside the u.s.
You can find all of my legend of zelda and fullmetal alchemist watercolor prints there, along with poster sets of some of them. In the future, I’m thinking of adding some prints of my original work, so watch out for those too!
You can check out my shop here!
Thank you! Hope you consider buying a print!

Hi guys! Just want to let you know I’m most likely not going to be updating with any art for a little bit. I hate doing this, but I really need to spend a little bit of time editing some sites of mine. I’m really not the brightest when it comes to anything like this, so it takes a lot longer to get things done than it should.

I also feel kind of uninspired lately, despite wanting to try new techniques digitally. I’m also currently really run down and frustrated, but hopefully that will go away soon. I really doubt it will be longer than a week before I have some art to post, and honestly it might only be a few days the way my mind works.

But anyway just wanted to keep you updated! I’ll still be around tumblr, so if you have any questions I’ll be here!

Another site update!
I also finished a facebook page for my art! It’s a little slow going right now, but I should have it running smoothly in the the next few days, with updates in an hour or so!
For the time being, I’ll be updating with art I have already posted on here, and maybe a few pieces I did back in school.
I intend to use it pretty similarly to my blog, but with more WIP updates and less fanart (Though I still will post ones I’m really proud of)
If you have a facebook, I’d really appreaciate a like!

hi guys! I’m going to be busy for a few days adjusting sites I have, but I have news!
After months of slacking off, I finally got around to finishing my website! I still have a pretty lackluster about page (I can’t ever write about myself) but that should be fixed in a few days!

This is really just for online portfolio purposes. All the art on there is things I have already posted on my blog, but please feel free to check it out!

Side note, part of the reason it took me so long to get this done is that I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use my first and last name professionally or just my first and middle. I opted for the second option haha.

what's the most difficult thing for you to draw?

oh god I’m not even sure honestly. I feel like maybe figures involving foreshortening? Although lately I’ve been doing better at that. It depends heavily on whether I’m in a slump or not honestly. OH WAIT I suuuuuck at drawing men. I really really hate doing it and I’m trying but good lord why are they so hard to draw?

Sunflowers are my absolute favorite flower. I’ve never had much luck growing them though. I have a couple this year, and so far they’re growing nicely, but who knows if they’ll actually bloom haha.

Bored question time? well ok. Have you gotten any of the tattoos you've designed on yourself? (why was that so awkward to phrase)

haha i’m absolutely horrible with words so don’t even worry.
No I haven’t actually! I don’t have any tattoos at all. It’s such a shame because I really like them a lot (especially watercolor ones if you couldn’t tell) but I dunno it’s just such a hard decision to make. I wouldn’t rule out getting one, but it would have to be the most perfect thing with a lot of meaning behind it. Plus I have no money, and I would want to get one done by a very good tattoo artist, so there’s that haha.
