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: jojoesart@gmail.com

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.: 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:

Heartbound

Though you have fur and I've got skin,
Our hearts beat to the same old sound,

Though distant, still our hearts are bound.

Beautiful Death

"Beautiful Death" - colored version :la:

I think butterflies are such a fitting symbol for death. Just like the caterpillar has to rest and be transformed inside a cocoon before it can spread its wings, we rest in death before we are transformed into a more advanced and beautiful state. At least that is what I believe and hope for!

Thank you for your support!! :hug:

Hey there! Your art is absolutely gorgeous, you truly have a gift!
I'm not sure whether I should send a note about this but I found one of your works being sold on a shirt and I'm not sure if they had used it without permission ;w;
