    Why are there no dogs on the moon?

    How would you react if I sent one there?

    How much time do you spend on art daily?

    I have not!

    A few times a week. Not as much as I used to but I spend so much time drawing now!

    Hahah! Sure! I accept all nicknames.

    I have so many that I love but I wear mostly labradorite and lapis.

    I do not.
    I have considered it but my head makes it hard to be mindful. Its constantly going at 200miles an hour. hhhh.
    IT LIVES!!!!!

    I'm so happy you like it!! My first sketch of Illuminyati started its life as a doodle while I was on the phone for work. For work phone doodles I kinda just smush things together. So there was no thought behind the design, sadly. As much as I'd like to say there was!
    Same goes for doodlebop, another one of my characters I draw a lot.

    (Another odd recurring phone doodle is a 2 legged cat with a lightbulb head. Not all my phone doodles are related to cats but a lot of them are hahah)

    It's more than likely that you've been asked these before, but...

    What's your favorite part about drawing?
    What got you into art?
    How long have you been doing art?

    If I have I cant remember. A combination of bad memory and not looking at this thread for a long time hahah!!!

    Just the act of creating. I love sketching the most! But I enjoy taking that sketch and making it squeaky clean looking because my sketch style is SUPER MESSY whereas my art style is regarded as quite clean looking.

    I wanted to create my own Pokémon and magical girl stories when I was very young. Pokémon and Sailor Moon and CCS were big at this point and I wanted to create stories like them! Though before then I was always doodling. Just without 'purpose'.

    Since I was very small. I only got 'serious' about it when I joined dA for the first time like, 10-12 years ago? But then I got this awful 4 year art block where I didnt do anything. It's been 3 years since I started drawing again and I decided not to be so serious about it and just draw to have fun.
    I'm planning on doing a comic soon and I'm low key worried if it'll kill my motivation again....

    Oops! I missed this one with the last reply!!
    I have not.
    It was glorious.
    It's actually my fave.

    Hhhh! I have no idea??? I guess I can give you a tip I learned???

    Keep an eye on your values. With lineless art it's easy for you to accidentally make your art look very flat with similar tones.
    A way round this is to copy your image and in a new file make it black and white. If you can still see all the parts without it all merging together you're doing good! if not you can try change the tone or add shading to that section if it's unavoidable.
    I find I have to add darker shading to the skin if the person who commissioned me has a pale skinned pale blonde character so you can see the difference between the skin and hair.

    Zoroark

    I'm watching some youtube series at the moment like Buzzfeed unsolved.
    I dont really watch any tv shows.

    Either potatoes or pasta.
    Or stirfry.

    Were there any specific events that you can remember that influenced how you viewed or worked on art?

    I've mentioned it a lot but it's because it did change my whole art journey but about 4 years ago I got over a 4 year art block. The art block came out of me going to art college and hating it.
    The four years after college I didn't touch any art products. I shoved my art portfolio under my bed, sold my drawing tablet and just did nothing drawing wise for years. I kept trying to get back into art around the 2 year point but I just couldn't get my head back into it. It started to really affect me because art was my thing. I was always introduced as the arty one.
    I wish there was a magical moment where I was hit with divine inspiration and was like "I CAN DRAW AGAIN" but it happened so randomly and quietly.
    At work I am on the phone a lot. I am a secretary so I deal with all the phone calls. And a lot of the time I'm on hold. Whilst on hold I'd doodle idly and slowly I started to doodle less random shapes and slowly I started drawing in a simplified style. I looked at these doodles and was like "Huh. That's pretty cute actually."

    So yeah. That's how my current style happened. It happened out of a want to draw and certain parts of it developed through my dislike of doing certain things (I did a lot of detailed linework at college. Now I dont do lineart at all) but most importantly my style and outlook on art developed through a need to enjoy art again.
    Before hand I always pushed to improve my self. I think in college I pushed that too hard and burnt out.
    So my outlook on art now is "Have fun!"

    Sorry for rambling ;w;''

    AeroHail comes from an old group RP I did with internet friends. 'AeroHail' was an online game I came up with for a side rp where some of our characters would create their own characters and play in this game. It sorta became my baby and we all ended up super invested in the side rp more than the main rp whoops.

    But I came up with the actual term AeroHail by just smooshing words together that I thought sounded like it could be the name for a (digital) world. I started using it as a user name a few years after the RP disbanded because of life.
