I hit a bit of a follower milestone today, so I thought I’d share with you guys my very first bit of fan art.
This is a pencil sketch, probably from sometime in January 2017. It was just a scribble in a notebook; I never planned on sharing it, and I had nobody to share it with. I drew it because I love these characters, and I wanted to see what they would look like if they came straight from me, from my hands, onto the page.
When I figured out that I could digital paint, that curiosity took on a whole new level; now I could play with colour, texture, shade, and light. I could place these characters into new situations, change their character with a few brush strokes, explore their lives in binary ink. It was a wild feeling, and still is. That curiosity is a huge part of my motivation to create.
But I wouldn’t have kept painting on curiosity alone, not if all that met my work was silence. It was, and is, you guys–each and every one of you who messages me, sends me asks, reblogs with sweet tags, replies to my work–who give me the will to keep painting, pushing myself, and trying new things.
I cannot thank you guys enough for being here, for being so incredibly supportive of me as I venture into new territories, and for making me feel so loved. You all mean so much to me. ♥
