Hey guys!

Remember that last poll I asked you about your biggest fears as an artist? I just watched this super helpful talk that hits these exacts topics!

Illustrator Christoph Niemann talks about the fear of not being good enough, the fear that your work will be irrelevant and the fear of running out of ideas. It's a 20 minutes long video but it's definitely worth the time!

What's your biggest fear as an artist?

:bulletblue:How long have you been drawing?
I've been drawing as a hobby since I was a kid. I've been drawing a bit more seriously for two years.
:bulletblue:What do you use?
• For traditional media: Pocket size (14X9cm) Moleskine journal with blank, acid-free pages; Pentel mechanical pencil for sketch; Staedtler pigment liners for inking;
• For digital media: Cintiq Companion (tablet); Photoshop CC (windows version) and Paint Tool SAI (version 1.0.2).

:bulletblue:How do you paint?
Right now my paintings are digital coloring over traditional sketches on my journals. I'll cover my coloring process in detail on a future tutorial. If you want to see the sketches underneath my paintings, please consider supporting me at Patreon. Thanks for your interest!
:bulletblue:Do you do requests/commissions/collabs?
I don't take requests (suggestions are always welcome though!) and commissions and collabs are currently closed.
:bulletblue:Do you sell prints?
Not yet! But I will make them available soon!
:bulletblue:Are you a big fan of Dragon Ball, Picolo?*giggles*
I like it but my username is based on my actual surname (my parents don't know DBZ btw, it's an Italian surname)

Hey picolo-kun, I don't know if you read this but I really really love your art. Because of you I started drawing with pen and like it soooo much :squee:
But I have problems with the shadows or coloring dark clothes... or for the textures...
I support you on patreon too. Do you plan any tutorial about this in the future?
