Interview with :iconmizaeltengu:MizaelTengu


Masanori Saito - Commission by MizaelTengu

Have you ever studied art and school/college?

I've never studied art school or college, though I'd love to study one day, I think it is very important for our formation as artists.


What appealed to you the most about being an artist?

Art is somewhat divine. We have the power to bring to life anything we want. It is exciting. We can generate thoughts and feelings in people.

Xios -  The Dragon Knight by MizaelTengu


What is your inspiration for your artworks?

Mainly: music, manga, 2D game fighting, books and so on.


What would you consider the key factors in creating/designing characters?

Free your mind. Don't over-think art.
Practice figure drawing.
Develop your aesthetic feeling (mental-visual-library) concerning to the shapes and features.
Always try to show your vision of things.
Never worry more about technical than creativity. Find the balance.
Focus more on the whole silhouette than details.


Malkavian by MizaelTengu


What traditional/digital materials do you use and why?

I work in both medias, much more traditional cause I'm still learning digital media.
traditional: Mechanical pencils, Ink, nibs, fine-liners, mechanical erasers. The basics. I sometimes use copic markers.
For digital media I use wacom bamboo and PhotoShop CS3. I use PS because I'm more familiarized with the interface. Wacom bamboo is a kind of standard for digital painting.

Dragon Slayer - KnightPunk by MizaelTengu

What are your plans for the future?
I have some manga projects. Some of them already in storyboards. I plan to execute them this year.
Improve my digital media skills.
Improve my traditional media skills.

Is there any advice you could give to learning artists? Is there any learning materials, artists, books or references you would recommend?

materials for learning:
Youtube channels:

PROKO
concept Cook
Xia Taptara
Sycra
onairvideo

Advice:
Never be afraid of learning. Even if your skills aren't that great, don't let this impede you of having fun and expressing yourself. Be patient and enjoy the journey.

Hello, and happy new year.

I've decided to make this year a year of improvement for me, and it seems that my luck would have me do just that. I'm happy to have found this group, and I hope I'm able to assist as much as I might get assisted.

A suggestion to your links though on "Other Sites You Might Enjoy"

The website Manga Masters has a paintchat which some people may prefer to iScribble since it is pen pressure compatible if you have the JTablet plugin.

The url: www.mangamasters.com/paintchat…

I've sent a request to join this group, even with some doubts and some people saying I shouldn't because my drawings honestly could never in a million years add up to any of the drawings in the folders... I really need to stop comparing myself and my art to other people, but I feel like I can't get any help with my drawings or any of my art because I'm just to bad at it (Take a look at my profile and you can tell)!!

Hello! If the sketch that I want redlined by different groups, should I still add the group's name and icon in my artist's comments as stated by the rules?

I accidentally sent my art to the "before-after" when I meant to do it to the "Corrected Cartoons".  ^^;   Is there a way I can change that or resubmit it?
