25untitled asked: I'm pretty new to colored pencils what type of paper works best for you?
Hi! I usually use smooth Bristol paper as I find the colour looks smoother and richer on that paper. I also just use normal copy paper sometimes - works just as well! I think as long as it’s smooth you will get a decent result. Hope that helps!
cool-gardens asked: are the drawings for sale?
Unfortunately none of these are for sale! Sorry! :(
tom719 asked: What is the black background? Is it paint or color pencil too?
It is coloured pencil, but when I scan the drawing, I darken the background in photoshop as the scanner light washes the colour out! Hope that helps :)
a1exthe1ion asked: On a scale of 1 to 10 how hard is it being a graphic designer and what do you do? and what kind of scale are most of your illustrations on?
Hi! I think it’s a hard one to answer - I studied to be a graphic designer for 4 years but it’s always a challenge with different projects. I wouldn’t call graphic design hard for me as it’s where my skills are, but obviously when starting out there is a heap to learn and a lot of practice to keep your work relevant and top quality. Since design is always changing, keeping up to date with trends and what others are doing is also challenging, but if you love it, it’s worth it!
My illustrations are generally A4 (210mm x 297mm) or A3 (297mm x 420mm). This allows me to complete work quickly without using up all my materials!
Hope that answers everything for you!
