Fairy: We met once upon a dream *giggle*
Chantilly Lace: A dream?
Fairy: Yes, believe it or not! We used to see each other all the time in our dreams and one day that just stopped. I don’t think we ever considered the the off chance we would meet in person, but as fate would have it, I found myself engaged to his best friend.
Chantilly Lace: No!
Fairy: Oh yes! Our first meeting, we recognized one another instantly. You can probably guess what happened from there.
Hi! I hope I didnt miss the opportunity to get my questions in! I am doing master studies of American illustration + Baroque art (Huge fan! U too right? ^o^) I want to implement what Ive learned into my art. How did you go about balancing noticeable influence while retaining your style? Do u have any tips or tricks to interesting lighting? How did u better ur understanding of lighting? Values? Any books u recommend? Lastly, dont feel pressured to answer my question if u dont want to. Thank u :)
