FAQS:hint: I always let you know what I use for a pic IN THE END OF THE DESCRIPTION SECTION !!
ARTWhat type of pens do you use ?
>I don't really use pens. I ink with a brush (03, martre;Kolinsky or Windsor & Newton) and a crowquill (Hunt 102)
For Really smooth details I eventually use Rotrings (0.2 and 0.3) and staedlers pens . I do not really dig faber& castel pens. I Also use a FLAT pigma micron size 3 which is a great tool overall.Do you use markers ?
>Mostly copics Sketch, because of the brush tip ! Also they are refilable
(like ALL the others copics) I used to use Touch! markers too, but can't find them anymore in france.What kind of watercolors ?
> A good watercolor is generally soft when you touch it. if's it's hard, it's not really good material.
>that said, I mostly use Acrylics inks in the end kind because colors will stay once they are dry. I mostly use windsor & Newton colored inks, even it's not Acrylics inks. they are almost non removable once dry !Oil or Acrylics / Is it difficult to paint with oil /I do all of my colouring with digital software but i plan on experimenting with diffrent mediums in the future. Any suggestions
>Hummm.... no.... I would say, itself; it's very easy, way easier than acrylics I think, because it doesn't dry quickly and then you can achieve good degradients; and the texture of the oil itself is good to work with.
BUT: it's an exclusive medium (And I like to mix a LOT of medias so...) and, what is a pain in the @$$ with oil is that you got to clean your tools and diluate your color with white spirit. It's not the same deal than simple water.In fact you really need to take care of your material because white spirit also tend to quickly kill your brushes
> experimenting with diffrent mediums" is the key indeed. just find what you are the most confortable with. I'll say try OIL as the last choice however.
Just keep in mind that watercolors and colored inks are liquid technics , then maybe easier if you are for complex degradient of colors that are fading away (indeed just add more and more water and you are done)
Acrylics is... plastic. not more no less. it's the fastest medium in term of drying time. Also you can paint on nearly everything with the media. That said it's far from beeing the easiest one to use when you are tryng degradients. Also since it's very plasitc, once it's dry , it's hard to work with diluated colors.
My own nemesis remains the Gouache. it's more or less a non-liquid version of the watercolors,; it's cool to paint with BUT: gouache dry fast enough but will NEVER be fixed. it's a technic that hardly support paint over. if you try to put a color over an other: they will mix. so if you miss a color and that you try to correct it by overpainting it: wrong choice ! (in fact using a sponge tu erase the colors remains the best solution )What software do you use for coloring?
>I used photoshop 7.0 for the last 12 years!!! I use Cs3 since some monthes. theres is not a BIG difference is coloring is the real thing you want to do. I do not use Painter : Too heavy and most of the stuff painter do, Photoshop can do it too, it's just a bit longer to find HOW.What tablet do you use for coloring ?
> I used a Wacom Graphire; A6 sized for the last 10 years ! I use a Cintiq since nearly one year now. Obviously it's like two separate worlds. A moment is needed to adapt the CIntiq. but once it's done it's like heaven. And what a great gain of time in your work !!

> ok. go there > j-estacado.deviantart.com/jour…
This is here you can suggest me stuff.I usually don't do any request art. Keep in mind that COMMISSIONS are here for that
but I always read your suggestions and keep some of them in mind, so you never know !Check out this [link] Someone is selling/stealing your work:
> I encourage all of you to notice the owner of the work when you see that. This is a recurrent problem, but most of the time it can be resolved quickly enough .
ABOUT MY ARTWhy do you always draw Women ?
> Why "why do you always draw men" is never asked to people that never draw female characters ?
I don't draw ONLY women. This is just I communicate Mostly on this type of art, since it seems it's the most appreciate stuff from what I do. Fortunatly this is also what I prefer illustrating too :°)I think your women are bitchy.
Well; maybe. that can happens. this is not my main goal tho.
If you watch me, it's generally that you know what to expect.
D.A is a wide community, then it means lots of artists with lots of different skill /passions, and interest.
If you don't like my stuff; No worries; really. and also NO PROBLEMS. you can't like everything. But I have to wonder why you are staying here . No artists can please the community at 100%.
I don't want to read hatefulls or unpolites comment here. AND: I don't care about your opinion on MY tastes. taste is personnal thing. each one is own.
As always ,Comments and CONSTRUCTIVES critiques/comments are welcome, but that's stop here.
So in case,if you are against most of the thing I picture....
REALLY, please save your time (and mine) by switching to a other picture/deviant, because I won't ask you. I used to do that before, but it's like fighting wind.
By saying that I may sounds like a coward. But I'm not,
I'm JUST fed up justifying aesthetic tastes. It's time consuming and leads nowhere. When you cross someone who decided an aesthetic point is wrong BECAUSE this personn decided it was the HOLLY truth, you will NEVER be able to have an exchange with him/her. SO yeah. silence remains the best
