This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get Core Membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get Core Membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!

do you take requests? Essentially, no, but if you happen to ask for something i would love to draw (like otome game boys) then i may like the idea enough to accept the request.
What art materials do you use? Mechanical pencil w/ .03 lead Maxon Comic ink & brush for inking (0/2 kolinsky)/ copic SP multiliners Copic Markers ( I have both Sketch and Ciao) Iwata HP CS airbrush Strathmore smooth bristol, 300 series or Borden & Riley #234, 11" x 14" I cut them down to 8.5"x 11" , Maxon Manga Manuscript paper Paint brushes- kolinsky and squirrel are the best, but i use white sable the most.
Are you copic certified? Yes, I am
Where can I buy cheap copics? I buy mine from www.carpediemstore.com/. I suggest buying ciao if you are a beginer with markers and just want to try them out. A set of 12 is a good starting point, I recommend ciao because they are smaller and cheaper, but have the same tips and colors as the larger sketch markers do.
How long have you been drawing? I have been drawing and painting seriously for about 10 years I believe I started drawing manga in 6th grade.
Do you take request or art trades? i don't accept requests because I can't work for free, but I might be willing to do an art trade with friends and others of an equal level ^^ Just note me asking about it. You can also win a request by catching a kiriban of mine.
How did you get so good? The short and long answer is practice. But I can tell you, if you want to improve practice anatomy, clothing folds and shadows. To make any art better instantly don't draw it on lined paper, take a good scan/ photo of it so the white looks white and the lines look black and adjust this in Photoshop, crop the image so it focuses on the drawing, don't leave empty white space.
Will you critique/look at my artwork? Sure just send me a note titled "critique request" and ill check it out when i have time.
A list of all of my current commissions art trades, ect. so if i owe you art you can see how far i am. also just for my own reference. Listed in the order they need to be done, based on who ordered first. If you art waiting on art for me please be patient, you can ask to see a WIP at any time, just send me a note.
