COMMISSIONS: I am currently closed. I will make an announcement when I reopen.

Please check out my Shapeways shop: www.shapeways.com/shops/bobbie… All proceeds go towards student loans, supporting my elderly parents, and paying medical debt.
Interests
Texas: Just an FYI for anyone who might want to get a hold of me over the next week: I will be in Texas and I will likely be without internet. T___T I'll answer any notes/comments/shouts etc when I get back, probably around Sept 5th.

Eyes: My eyes were hot, pained, and dry as hell, for a few days but I seem to have recovered mostly. My eyesight is a little worse now than it was a few weeks ago, it seems, but stable, for now. I just hope it doesn't get worse because I've looked into Bascom Palmer and I've heard some not-so-great things about them, the not-so-greatest being five hour waits, sudden cancellations, and expense. XC I don't even know if they would take my insurance and even if they did, I'd still be a few thousand out of pocket because my insurance is kinda ballsack. At least for now, my eyes are stable and I can see well enough to paint if I'm sitting a foot away from my 27 inch monitor. -___- Science, can haz cure nao?

Well, your work is awesome, I don't know why I didn't watch your DA profile earlier, but now I do, so that's done. Your stuff is so good, it kind of makes me want to mess around in Zbrush despite my general dislike for 3D moddeling.

Thanks. :) I'm curious though, what don't you like about 3D modeling? I checked out your gallery btw. Very nice work! :D Interesting. I like your style.

I just don't like to 3D model myself, I don't find it very enjoyable and would rather draw. I don't have anything against 3D modelling as a whole.

A friend of mine showed me your work. And it's amazing. All of it.

While you probably get told that all the time, it doesn't make it any less true.

So thank you for inspiring me. I -think- I've found out what I'm doing wrong with my own methods.

I'd been having trouble lately with my own art, though I've only been working on things digitally for just about three months now.

And I've found it's because of an excessive focus on lineart, which I tend to erase and redraw for hours if I don't catch myself doing it.

Coming from more traditional media, I tended to work better when it came to painting, so practicing that digitally has been a good start.



And seeing how amazing your own art is and what you do with it (support your parents) makes me want to continue with my own, where it's easy for me to demotivate myself if I feel it's just a hobby.

I have had eeeexxxaacctttllyyyy the same problem in the past. The problem is that there is a tablet/screen disconnect and lines don't always come out as intended. There are several ways you can deal with that issue:

1.) I've heard SAI has a nice "wobbly line" correcting feature.
2.) Get a Surface Pro. Drawing directly on the screen makes a BIG BIG BIG difference.
3.) Adobe Illustrator also has some good line-art tools.
4.) Learn how to use Photoshop's Pen tool and convert the path to stroke. (Personally, I dislike working with Photoshop pen. It breaks up my workflow but sometimes I have no choice but to resort to this.)

I hope you found that helpful. :)

Good luck and I wish you well. For someone who has only been working with digital media for three months (yes?) you are doing amazingly well. :) Keep up the good work.
