Q:Hey Steven! Your work is brilliant! Really curious about what program you use to do your illustrations, because I really want to invest in one but don't know which to choose from. I've been working on a few sketches and you've inspired me to take them to the next level! Thank you in advance :)
Hi Nitara! Nice to meet you. Thank you for the kind words and I couldn’t be happier that you were inspired by my little drawings. It means a lot.
Anyway, I started off learning and working in Adobe Photoshop (from CS4-6). I was a digital photographer for years so I was conformable with it and its tools. However over the past few months, I have switched completely over to Manga Studio 5 EX. The tools in it feel much more natural and traditional then photoshop ever did. Both are great programs though. Hope this helped you out, and good luck with your art!
Q:Today I ran into your blog and I am so so so in love with your artwork, buddy! Can't wait to see your drawings of Charizard, Mewtwo and Mew =D
Thank you very much Danny. I’m glad you love my silly drawings.
I drew Charizard over a year ago when I began the Pokemonathon challenge, but realized he is not on this page. So here is this guy. Hope i don’t let you down :)
Q:hey steven! just saw your pokemonathon project, and it's well drawn and really really really cool! :) how long it takes to draw one pokemon? btw, I have a pokemon project too, it's called iconapokemonia, please check it out (search using iconapokemonia as keyword) and tell me what you think about it :) much thanks :))
Hey Febrian. Thanks for the kind words. I always appreciate people liking my drawings and letting me know!
Each drawing usually takes about 1-2 hours from start to finish. Most of that time is spent figuring out a pose that I don’t completely hate. When I started this project I was still new to digital drawing so it took closer to 5-6 hours.
I just checked out iconapokemonia and I got to say I really like what your doing! They are all really well done and I think they would make killer stickers lol. If anyone sees this, go it out!
