Interior designs for my concept art class, for the original version(set in China) story of Aladdin! Also, thanks SO much everyone for the incredible response to the character designs for this project!! Wow <3
Asks below the cut!
1 - Thank you so much <3
2 - I wanted ‘reluire’ (which means 'to shine’, in french), but it was already taken..so reluin is just what 14 yr old me thought still sounded cool :’) I would’ve been posting my art online years before if I could’ve thought of something better. I’ve been thinking about changing all my usernames across sites so that everything’s cohesive, so it might change soon!
3 - I don’t use anything in particular! It changes painting to painting, because I’m always trying new things. I think I’m using some of Shaddy Safadi’s brushes at the moment, and Zedig/Alexandre Diboine has some great ones too. The default Hard Round Brush/airbrush, and the default Oil Pastel Large Brush are my oldest favourites, and I used them for a few years before I started experimenting.
4 - All of the above, every day!! But mostly life drawing if you can do it more frequently :) I loved Bridgeman and Loomis, for book recommendations.
5 - Unless you need any specific help (that you can’t google) my only advice is what I’ve told people before!
6 - I’ve only used PS, Mac doesn’t support SAI :( I just used the default brushes for a few years to get used to the program, and then looked up tutorials on dA and tried to practice every day!
7 - Hi, and thank you! I answered this question in a recent post. :)
