Hello Anon! Thank you so much for dropping by with an ask TAT!! hahaha yesss I’m a greedy person, so greedy I want to draw in so many styles…but I have mastered…none. T_T;;; (but isn’t it too inconsistent?!)
HELLO DEAR ANON! THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO LOOK THROUGH MY EMBARRASSING ART TAG /TT///TT\ I REALLY APPRECIATE IT AAAAAA
Hello anon! It depends on how complex or big the drawing is (Or how motivated I am HAHA) Usually for an A5 size, if I really sit down and work on it…it takes around 2-3 hours (again depending on how complex I want it to be, sometimes it takes 2 days or more hehe) Thank you so much for dropping by and leaving an ask, I really appreciate it TvT!!
Hello there anon! For me to give tips…I think the first I would recommend is always reference. (I personally don’t practice this enough) Depending on what look and feel you’re going for, find something similar and then try to study their color palette. Try mixing colors to get the effect you like, once you know the “formula” it just comes to you the next time you try ^^
As for body proportions: Reference. AGAIN. T_T I have a really hard time referencing because I can’t “understand” the picture. I suppose this is a result of lack of practice and poor observation skills *dry laugh* But, but I will tell you that actually sitting down to deconstruct the body to basic shapes will help in understanding how the body works and bends \TvT/ The more practice you put in, proportions will start becoming second nature while drawing.
I hope this was helpful! I need to practice more too hehe ^^
Hello there Anon!! Yes, I am kinda sorta self taught? ( I studied abit of drawing during college but not really much xDD;;)
Hmm…developing an art style is a constant state of experimentation I think. For me I try to mash up influences from many different artists and mediums! For example, sometimes I like the way a certain artist draws hands, I would try to adapt that to my own art and kinda make it “my own” and pair that with a color palette from a photo etc. Since art is something that showcases you as a person…I think there’s an endless possibility of customization until you’re satisfied! I usually go to different sources of inspiration and reference; I grew up watching/reading anime/manga so my base came from there. Later on, I was very influenced by concept art and fashion illustration, and at one point i was even very into horror and gore manga xD!
So I think, being open to many sources and types of art will help you find your own identity. Mix and mash, experiment, and if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again (how many years of my life and I’m stuck at this embarrassing standard haha!!)

So sorry for the late reply OTL!! Yes yes of course I remember you haha ^-^ Thank you so much for the support during CF, I really appreciate it TT
No trouble at all! I printed mine at Angel Printing House at William’s Place (You can find them on FB), they’re located just across Sunway Pyramid above a mamak stall and just an additional note, stickers can be printed at most places that offer printing services, so if you see another place you can ask them about it (it’s for convenience sakes if you find it hard to run down to Sunway just to print stuff oTL) Hope this was helpful!
((Hope to see you again as well! I’m praying hard that our group will get picked for a booth this year~ TvT;;))
Hey there Anon!! ~ Uh well, to be very honest I don’t really know myself! Since I don’t have a specific I’ve gone through several suppliers and hit and miss in experimenting with making merchandise from my art. So far for stickers (I’ve only printed them once) were from Angel Printing House at William’s Place (You can find them on FB) which is right across from the outside of Sunway Pyramid’s Redbox and is very much frequented by ToA Students xD Bear in mind these are sheet stickers, I have yet to find a supplier that prints die-cut at an affordable price oTL I also realized that most printing shops have sticker paper in stock so don’t worry about this ^^
For prints I printed them at a random printing place near my office in KJ and for postcards I ordered them from colourprinting.com.my. I have yet to find any supplier for keychains and when I do they require a huge amount of orders :( I’ve check around Pasar Seni before, there are alot of printers there for badges and other things that you might like to check out ^^ Also if you’d like to make prints, I highly suggest going directly to the printer instead because you can choose the type of paper and finishing that is available!
I hope this was helpful, hwaiting with your merchandise!! ^0^
OAO?!! THANK YOU!!?
Eeppp, Thank you so so much , your words are too kind!! ;;;////;;;
FFFFFF THANK YOU ANON! (Honestly I think I make such a mess when it comes to trad media TT)
