Sketching some ff9 fanart. I actually feel mildly rusty because of so much digital drawing basically every day. Drawing this has been so so relaxing, I suppose I’m quite traditional media artist at heart… I still want to tweak the composition a bit. Maybe inking or gouache + inking this.

Your sketch makes me think of those ethereal themed woodcuts that accompanied poetry. Maybe you could use it with a poem or story? (It's quite beautiful on its own though)

Illustrating poems sounds like fun. It just occurred to me that I might be interested in illustrating poems of Luis Franco http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luis_Franco_(writer) since I find it interesting that this person died on the day and year I was born. But I’m also halfway through Poem Edda at the moment, so it’s likely I’ll return to Norse gods theme soon again…

Thank you for the compliment!

I've been following your blog for some time, but its been a while since i've seen a lot of your posts, so after checking out your whole blog again, I just wanted to say how lovely your blog is! You have a really nice style, and your sense of color is really great.

Oh thank you so much! Glad to have you around still, hope you enjoy the future posts too. This message really cheered me up, I actually saw it yesterday when I was feeling bit poopy about work and art, thank you again for the kind words.

This anime wasn’t much of my thing but for a second I thought this art was brilliant

I heard there’s second season. This still makes me happy

I'm really sorry if you've been asked this before but, what program's/ tablets do you use for all your art. Your art is gorgeous and it's and medium I've been wanting to get into.

Oh not at all, it’s been a while since I’ve mentioned what I use to do digital stuff! Currently I have a Wacom Cintiq 24HD tablet/screen which I bought since I got used to it at my daily job. Previously I had a Wacom Bamboo A6 wide. Quite a change in size, phew. I’ve never used other tablet brands than Wacoms, and having tested out Intuos series too, I feel that Wacom has never betrayed in quality.

As for programs, I do all the painting and coloring in Adobe Photoshop. At home I have version CS5, and at work CC. Nothing very major differences between versions, some stuff is put more simple in CC and made easier, but no frustrating flaws in older version. Sometimes I also use Adobe Illustrator because of better vector tools for illustration.

And thank you for kind words, happy to hear you like my works!
