FAQ

Since I get asked the same questions over and over again, i decided to make some kind of a little FAQ :) So please don't ask any questions, which are listed here, I will probably not answer them. Apart from that, I am always open for questions, so if anything is still not clear, don't be afraid to drop me a note or a comment! :)

Q.: When did you start drawing?
A.: I started drawing when I was a little child, I think when I was about 2 or 3 years old. Art has been my passion ever since I can remember. I started drawing digitally in the summer of 2009, when I got my tablet and Photoshop for my 15th birthday.

Q.: Who/What inspired you to start drawing or to not stop drawing?
A.: My mother was the one, who placed some sheets of paper and some colored pencils next to me, so she was the one, who got me into drawing. I also had several good friends, who liked art as much as I do and my older sister :iconpixiecold: is a passionate artist herself. Art kinda is a tradition in our family, because many of my relatives are artists in different kinds of ways. I was/am also inspired by many good movies (Princess Mononoke, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Avatar etc.) and TV-shows (Pokemon, Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh etc.) as well as books (Harry Potter, Hunger Games, LotR etc.).

Q.: What is your preferred medium - digital or traditional?
A.: Well, I can't really tell, which medium I prefer. Both have advantages and disadvantages. But I seem to produce more digital art lately, because it is just more fun for me and it also is much easier to reach such a great and big audience in the internet with digital art! :)

Q.: Who is/are your favourite artist/s:
A.: My favourite artists on dA are :iconsandara: :iconsakimichan: :iconthienbao: and many many others. These also inspired me alot and still do. Sandara was the artist I watched the first here on dA and she has been kind of a rolemodel for me, because I really love her fantasy art! :heart: Surely I am also a big fan of my sister's :iconpixiecold: art! :D

Q.: What is your favourite motif to draw? And what is your favourite art style?
A.: I love drawing anything, which is related to Fantasy/Surrealism. I also love abstract art (but not too abstract, kinda combined with realistic elements). I love drawing fantastic animals/creatures, fantastic people/persons and I love to combine fantasy motifs and realistic motifs (Like little girl + dragon or realistic animal + fantasy setting/lights etc.). I don't really like drawing vehicles/machines, Manga art (though I like some manga artists here on dA) and some other things, that don't come to my mind now.. ^^

Q.: How did you learn how to draw? Did you teach yourself? Did you visit any courses/classes etc.?
A.: I never visited any art related school or class. I taught me everything by myself. I looked at many tutorials and speedpaint videos (on dA and youtube/google) and I just practiced a lot. My favourite artists also inspired me a lot and made me want to improve. I think the most important thing to improve is, that you have to have a passion for art. Art is not (only) about proportions, composition rules and all these things, when you practice a lot and WANT to improve, you WILL improve. The human brain is a miracle and it gets trained in different kinds of things, when we just do it. So just draw, have fun and look at other artists you like and you will get a feeling for colors, composition, proportions and all that! :)

Q.: Do you draw/paint without references?
A.: No, I use a lot of references, mostly photos I find on google or stock images from dA. Referenes help me alot, they also serve as inspirations. I love good photography, especially these of landscapes and animals! :D

Q.: Will you draw (invert random OC or anything else) for me?
A.: I wont draw anything for free. That means, I don't take requests at all. I Do take commissions most of the time (I draw bookcovers, CD-covers etc. etc.), to contact me about a commission and to get informed about my prices (as they vary, depending on the motif you want me to draw, I only accept real money payment via paypal, no dA-points) just contact me at me e-mail adress: jjoedicke94@web.de

Q.: Can you give me any tips or advices?
A.: It is hard for me to give a person I don't know personally any tips. I have a lot of tutorials in my gallery and many more will probably follow, so this is all I can do for you. I don't have the time to give every person, who asks me for advice, personal art lessons. I think there are many nice tutorials on dA and on google, which will help you! :)

Q.: What are the tools you work with?
A.: Digital Art: Photoshop CS4 and a Hanvon "Artmaster" tablet
Traditional Art: Watercolors (from Schmincke), graphite pen, fineliners, markers

Q.: What does "sanguisGelidus" mean?
A.: It is Latin and means something like "icy blood". :)

Q.: Can I use your art for/at (invert a random webpage/book or anything else)?
A.: You can share my art on any social webpages (facebook, Twitter, dA, Tumblr etc.). But you have to credit me as the original artist giving a link to my dA page. You can download my picture to use them as a wallpaper. You are NOT allowed to use my picture for any commercial purpose, you need my written permission first!! Don't steal, copy or redistribute my art in any way!

Q.: Can you give me some points/llama/a feature ...?
A.: I give points to whom I like to give them. Same goes for llamas, favs, watches, features and anything else. So please don't ask me for no reason.

I hope these are enough Q/A, if not, I will always be prepared to add something important! :) I am happy to be on dA, to receive feedback and to have so many awesome watchers! :heart: If I dont answer a question of yours, I may just overread it, as I get tons of comments and my inbox is often flooded by feedback (which is amazing, I thank everyone of you, who gave/gives me a fav/watch/comment etc.). All the questions listed here will probably not be answered anymore.
Thank you so much for your support! :love:

Heyyy!! My dear friends! :D :la: :hug:

I just returned from my 2 years long mission in Switzerland. I served as a missionary for two years, teaching people about Jesus Christ and sharing my beliefs. It has been most precious to me to serve my Saviour and I have gained so many unbelievably important experiences. It has literally changed my life!! :D

Now I am back, excited to continue my career as an artist. I can't wait to find some time and do some art. Right now everything is super busy, but you will hear from me very soon!!!!! :D

If you are interested in commissioning me, you can write me a note! :)

WOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Love you all!! :heart:

P.S.: I am planning to change my username from "sanguisGelidus" to "JoJoesArt". It is for simplicity's sake and also because that is what my facebookpage is called. Just to let you know.. :)

:la:

Your sanguis

God's Plan of Salvation by JoJoesArt
God's Plan of Salvation
Where do we come from?
Why are we here?
Where do we go after this life?

First: This picture is not meant to provoke or promote religious debates. You are allowed to discuss about it in the comments and to share your opinion, your view on God and the world, but please do so in a respectful manner. :)

So, this picture actually means a lot to me. On my 2 years mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I got to prepare three so called "Musical Evenings", in which we presented some of our basic beliefs through a combination of live music and an artistic story, that I got to write and illustrate. This picture, called "God's Plan of Salvation", was part of one of these programs and it displays my churches and my personal belief on the origin, purpose and destination of our earthly existence.

Before going to the explanation below, I would love you to write your own interpretation first in the comments. Just briefly. I would find it super interesting to read what you see in this picture.

If you are interested in having a religiously based explanation of this picture, you can watch this video on youtube: www.youtube.com/watch?t=14&…

I know that many people might not share a similar belief as I do and I hope I don't offend anyone by posting a religious picture. However, this means a lot to me and the picture itself is only a very symbolic depiction of what my faith in God actually means to me. To me having faith doesn't merely mean to "just believe", that there is a God and just declare that publicly, but rather it shows in those quiet moments when you are alone, it shows in your thoughts towards others, in small and simple actions of love an appreciation. Faith is something real, something tangible for me, something that has a visible effect on my life. I have found out for myself, that God exists and that He does have a plan for us, but it is something so personal and individual, that I would never force that knowledge upon anyone. However, I feel, as I have come to know this for myself, it is my joy and privilege to share that with others in a loving and respectful way. I don't expect anyone to accept it or to even care about it, but I hope that I will be encountered with respect, just as I would respect anyone else's belief as well. :)

If you are not religious at all, you can just see this picture as a nice piece of space art. Haha :D

Favs and comments are highly appreciated :heart:

I am not sure if you saw my post on the image, but I'd like to let you know that I saw Night Bringer printed on a fireworks box at a local stand in the US. Here is an image of what the box looked like:
