Sara F.
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
My interest in art began at a very young age under the guidance and kind instruction of my mother, who had worked for some years as a free lance portrait artist herself in Quebec, Canada. I experiment in a variety of genres, and though I pursued learning realism in highschool and through my mother, I also found great delighted in impressionism and the cartooning styles commonly found in Japan. Styles which I develop continually now.

I usually listen to instrumental, Rock and Jazz when I draw.

I'll tell you what's up. GLORIOUS THINGS. THAT'S WHAT.

The computer that I've been drawing on since the dawn of forever (an XP *crycryilovedyoupiggy* It was faithful, even if aged) became outdated and cut off from Windows support on the first of January, so my brother and I caved in and finally decided to update our stuffs. Honestly, if it wasn't for the updates dropping off, we would have probably keep using that computer till it died or overheated or both or exploded. But alas, twas time to move on.

Enter a new Dell XPS 8700 4th generation core processor gaming-applicable compy which was splendidly on sale (Minecraft creating gloriousness in mind lolol), then a beautiful 23" Asus IPS pre-calibrated monitor which was also splendidly on crazy sale and we just got set up the other day. Seriously, I'm not the materialistic type, and I hate to spend needlessly, but catching all these on sale as we did... I am feeling relatively guilt free. Now, paired with my new Wacom Bamboo Create tablet that my stepmum bought for me as a surprise gift...... it's the most new technology I've had in the same room since I got my first computer back in 4th grade from homeschooling. hahah. That thing's monitor was as deep as a deep dish pizza. For an ogre.

Forgive me, I'm spieling.

Gosh, I can't express my endless excitement about the tablet thouuuuuuugh. :iconhandspazzplz: I know it's not by any means a new model -- heck, it was a boxing day supersale because they couldn't get rid of the thing for forever and when Judy saw that I liked it she snapped it up for me (gosh you're so sweet Jud'!) -- but I love it oodles and oodles. And all of that being the case, you'll be seeing a lot more digital work from me in the future. I dunno how great it's gonna be, but I'm crazy behind on experimenting with the digital art form and I want to catch up a bit. Especially with using colours. I'm thinking of giving myself periodic challenges to experiment with the medium. If you have any suggestions, I'm eager to hear them and possibly try them!

I will be drawing traditionally as always, it runs thick in my blood and no amount of shiny new things can oust it. But hopefully you all wont be too uncomfortable with the mixing of mediums to come in my gallery from now on. But if you are, tell me what would make you feel better and I'll see what I can do :>

So again, forgive my stupidity by way of excited garble. And again, suggestions?

Was wondering if you have ever thought of making just a simple video of you sketching really anything lol.. Digital or just on a piece of a paper >< It would be really helpful for someone like me who wants to see how you create your line :) Your style and how you hold yourself as an artist has effected me greatly. When I look at the artists that have effected me throughout my art career (in college now) your a HUGE influence.

So thanks :) :hug: :hug: :hug:
