Hey I'm wondering what resolution you draw at o: Your details are amazing
knighthead Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! Most of my drawings here were 300dpi and 11" x 17", since I often started traditionally on Bristol paper, or planned to print them for a portfolio meant for images of that size. Ever since I upgraded computers, though, I work A4 size at 600dpi in Manga Studio. I also tend to scale the longer side (usually vertical) up to 9000px because it's a ridiculous size but lets me enjoy getting lost in the details.

Your art is amazing! Any tips for a newbie? Did you ever take art classes? How did you get to where you are now? How long does a typical piece take you? Thank you

Hi feltie1! Thanks for the compliment! I can answer a couple questions, though art is such a broad thing, even just drawing, that I would spend all day if I tried to answer all of them.

I went to art school, though I do not believe it's necessary, especially with the information available to you through the web. The art school I went to in particular was assignment-based, where the teaching was light, and it was more of a "learn by doing" sort of environment, supplemented with books that anyone can purchase online. "Framed Ink" by Marcos Mateu-Mestre and "Making Comics" by Scott McCloud were my two personal favorites. I went for sequential art, since I have wanted to be a comic artist since a young age. I believe that major had the second highest amount of drawing in it, next to 2D animation (I'm not entirely sure about the more technical Industrial and Architectural design classes, but if you're asking about the kind of stuff I do, their drawing applications would not really apply). You could easily make your own curriculum by purchasing the proper tools (much like we had to, it was not supplied by the school), books, and setting up assignments for yourself.
And much like anyone else, I started off really unable to draw. No one is born with it! But if you enjoy it, you stick with it, you learn at varying speeds... and eventually become known as someone who illustrates. For me, most of my learning came from trying to imitate realism, and I used that to strengthen my art overall with my more anime-inspired style. A drawing can take me up to fifteen hours, I'd say, but I usually spread an illustration's time over a few weeks. I used to draw them more in a single sitting, but that's just how I'm working right now! I'd like to get back to the single-sitting mode, personally. It was a much more prolific time.

Thank you for your detailed reply, it is very helpful :) good luck with getting back to drawing more in a single setting but as long as you enjoy whatever you're doing, it's ok!
