Raindrops keep falling on my head

Hello this is my artblog. Check my portfolio here [which is under construction atm]

I am an illustrator and currently focusing on animation as well. Be sure to check my sites for updates or follow me here.

When I am not drawing, I spend my time reading manga, watching anime, listening to Kpop, day dreaming or just think of mermaids and mermen and be magical in my own ways.

I animated my previous post and added a simple snowfall animation. It was really fun 8D!

Don’t mind the blog layout. I still don’t know how to fix it :B

An illustration based from the heartwarming quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic tale, The Little Prince. I really enjoyed making this one :’D

Enjoy the big and especially the little things life has to offer. Smile, continue to love and always see and feel the happiness. Hope you’ll enjoy this :)

EDIT: I might animate this one later on

Hi Victoria! I just found your tumblr blog today but I've been a fan for a while. I'm a graphic designer who enjoys illustration. I really love the visual development and would like to know how should I go about it as a graphic designer. What should I learn in order to start visual development? Thank you for your time.

Hey There! Great question! I would say start by creating your own project, pretend you ARE a visual development artist and develop a story with characters and environments. Try to start thinking like a designer would. Your first might not be portfolio ready, but it’s a great way to get into the mindset and figure out what skills you need to improve upon!

"Oh look Tinkerbell. They found us!"

I somehow messed up the color modes while working on this one :/ 

I’ve always wanted to become a Visual Development artist and I would really like to explore any possibilities that I could think of and that includes, practice… practice and practice! :D

I hope you enjoy this!

Domareen, it has been so fun to watch you improve over the last year. I have a question for you! I'm currently not at an art school and I have taught myself almost everything I know thanks to the people who put up tutorials and those who make art of books. Anyway...what would you say are the most crucial things that an artist can do on a daily basis to improve their painting? What are the first things that you think about when you are designing a prop, character, or environment? Thanks! :)

Hey Meg :D Thanks a bunch! I can totally relate about the whole self taught situation, I mean aside the Motivarti mentorship, it’s still one loooong ongoing journey of self teaching haha. I could say that most crucially, every artist should DRAW FROM LIFE AND DRAW EVERYDAY. JUST PRACTICE NONE STOP. Okay so that is true… Somewhat! More recently and especially through my mentorship, I found that wasn’t the case AT ALL. From personal experience, I found myself improving the most by mixing theory and research with all of that practice and getting a full understanding of how things work, rather than just painting based on what my mind preconceptually believes everything should look like? (Wow this is hard to explain haha)

OK for instance, You’re going to paint a cow in a field, with a clear sky, So my brain immediately goes.. “OK That’s green for the grass, erm, blue for the sky aaaand black and white for the cow! But then I stop and think.. “NO MIND there is more to this! Much more! Bad habit…” So at this stage I’d probably Google some picture of a cow in a green field with the clear sky. And I’ll stare and stare and “oh what’s this? this cow is actually sort of murky grey and black? And Is that some green fur on it’s stomach? Why… WHY IS THAT GREEN? Ah… It’s reflecting the grass underneath…” And I’ll do this for a while, with many aspects, the shape the lighting the colours and so on… I’ll just look and completely DECONSTRUCT a picture or what I see in front of me as much as I can and try to figure out why things are the way they are, if it’s a piece of art, I’ll try and figure out the artist’s thought process and how they view the world.

So I think the more you understand about the world through your means, the better you can be at painting or drawing, because your mind has it sussed, all that primary knowledge you learn yourself is at hand and you can apply it to all of your art, be it observational, research or design…

Just understanding the littlest of things can go an incredibly long way in anything you create! And with designing? All this information is just swimming around in my head! So now all that knowledge I’ve absorbed, I can throw into a piece of art or a design! And I get to bend the rules and have fun with it.

Such a good read! <3
