Contest Prize - Feathers of Gold by TwilightSaint

I find traditional art more fun than digital art, so though I do a lot of digital art, I consider myself more of a traditional artist. :dummy:

Though they don't appear often in my work, I really enjoy drawing fish and chains, and some other odd objects.

Feel free to ask any questions ^^

Goals for Kumoricon 2014

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 20, 2014, 8:09 PM
Because writing things down helps. I'll probably continuously update this.

To learn to sing/perform:
- Umbrella (Miku) by Tiara - Already started learning this, but didn't get the chance to perform it at SC.
- Freely Tomorrow (Miku) by Mitchie M

To learn to dance to:
- Sweet Devil 
- Two-Dimensional Dream Fever
- Shake it! (Miku's part)
- Cyber-Thunder-Cider (not sure if I spelled that right xD)

To cosplay:
- Fo from D.Gray-Man
- Something casual that doesn't require a wig that I can wear to non-convention events such as cosplay meetups and to special days at school (generic D.Gray-Man uniform?)

- Learn how to use makeup to make my appearance fit my characters more. I already made progress with this when I cosplayed Acantha because Rin helped me use eyeliner and mascara to match the black eye stripes of Pidgeotto. Now I need to figure out how to make my face look rounder and cuter and how to add eye makeup without making myself look even older.
- Find some way to learn to dance better.
- Find some people who can critique and help me with my singing, since I don't have time to develop all of my songs just with voice lessons.

*sees your work* AMAIZING! How did you get so good at coloring? I cant color worth crap XD. such a great artist!
Aki-rain Apr 11, 2014  Student General Artist
Part of it is practicing. I've been using these colored pencils for a while and I really like them. It also helps for me to ask artists I admire what kind of techniques they use - I've learned a surprising amount that way.
And thank you very much!
Darkwolfthelycan Apr 11, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ahh, That makes sense, trouble is, most of the artists I admire get so many comments they don't reply to anything XD. but sense you seem to be an exception, what techniques do you use that you think I could?
Aki-rain Apr 11, 2014  Student General Artist
I use colored pencils more often than anything else, so I can try to explain that a bit if that would be useful to you?
