This may sound a little weird just because it's kind of an odd thing to say, but I love the way you draw necks, chins and collar bones.
It's already an aesthetically pleasing part of the body anyway and you draw it (not photo-realistic and) gracefully. I love that your art has taken a turn for 'illustrative', because I can feel so much more of your personality as the person behind the art and less as the untouchable art-god you are! ;P

All flattery aside, I've really admired your art over the years and you are one of few artist galleries visited when I lack the motivation to keep drawing. I go to your page and hope that some day I could be as amazing as you are at this.
You truly inspire me. :)

Aaahahhhh ;;;;;;;;;;; this is so sweet! thank you so much for the lovely comment, especially the part about 'going more illustrative'. It means a lot when people notice things i'm trying to improve. So thank you. <3

You're welcome! :) I'm glad the feedback is appreciated!
:heart: :heart: :heart:

(This may be a silly question, but ... ) given the opportunity to choose the subject of gift art, what would you like to see? I've finally picked the pencil back up again and I really want to draw up something you'd actually like vs attempting to guess and coming up flat! :P

Anything under that tag (hunter) would be awesome ;;;;; I've made profiles for character I request / commission often, just so i'm all prepared for this exact situation ;a;!!!!!! I would honestly love anything as gift art though, it's so nice of you to offer.

It's only a wip but I'm gonna color it digitally since I don't know who I lent my prismacolor pencils to that never gave them back -headdesk- TT.TT

Oh! He's very very pale, black eyes, teeth, horns and hair. The gems and such on his forhead are also black. He's a pretty monochrome guy :>

Wow, I love the facial structure! The jawline, the cheek bones and the eyes are really well done, and... I can't stop staring at the nose. Line art is super 8D You can really get a feel of his character from this, awesome stuff!

I don't know why but I'm really digging his jaw-line for some reason. He has a whole air of superiority to him, and you draw the best noses xD Love his eyebrows for some reason too X'DD

I use a bunch of brush presets called Stumpy Brush Presets (i believe). If you google it, its the first thing that comes up. :>

That is a really awesome brush! At first I doubted you though, because of the obvious pencil texture in the example pictures used by the brush's blog, BUT then I looked more closely at your drawing and I could see it lol. Do you just work really big?

And thank you for taking to time to respond to my questions, I'm completely enamored by your style! <3

dapper-owl Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2012
I work fairly large, but not overly--I generally use smaller brush sizes when drawing, there's three different brushes in the set too, so experiment with all of them :>

Ok thanks! Your artwork is beautiful and you seem like a kind person, so I can't wait to be able to commission you one day. I will think long and hard about what I'd like and hopefully you'll enjoy bringing it to life.

lasjdf Sorry I'm kinda fawning over you, haha. Anyways, can't wait to see more of your work. c:

It's totally fine! It didn't come off as fawning ;; It's nice when people think so hard about what they want as a commission, which is why i always try really hard on each one. Most of the time these characters are people's babies, and they only get to commission a few artists. :heart:

I want to put a picture of Bast derping out, sitting in a water fountain or something retarded, right beside this one, and beneath this picture it would say, "How I think gods act" and beneath Bast it would say, "How gods actually act."

It would be the best thing ever.

I really like the pompous expression. Definitely get "god complex" from him. :>
