Kay your art is worth at least 20-30$ a drawing. Also, sell prints for $12 each or something! Try making prints into bookmarks and stuff too. IF YOU NEED ME TO PIMP YOU OUT, I WILL, and hopefully it will help. I totally understand about college debts/money. It's not easy out there. If I can help with anything, let me know!!
Wahh thank you so much! Definitely appreciate the usage of the word “pimp.”
Lots of appreciation :)))
I have always had the problem of feeling bad to charge for my art because I don’t know if I am overpricing or undervaluing them. v ^v
Once school starts, I am definitely going to get back on track the prints thing and more originals.
I would appreciate more advice because pricing art is still new to me and yahhh!
And thanks to everyone that commented on my previous post about college loans and stuff. I will definitely be trying to get a job SOMEHOW SOMEWAY.
And lol @kuniya. I def could try and sell 15 drawings for $6666!

Anonymous asked you: hi! i was looking through your blog and i saw a girl partially colored with colored pencil, and i love the way you did it. looks totally gorgeous! just wondering what your process was on that?
I just layered color pencil upon colored pencil lol I don’t know quite how to explain it. I just made lines with my strokes and to make certain areas darker, I just combined the primary colors. ^^
Anonymous asked you: hi there, i’m starting to put together a portfolio for a college application and i want to print out the images i’ve made in prints (since they were made digitally). i was wondering if you could give some pointers on how to do that since i have no idea where to start and google isn’t helping me at all >__<
Ummm. I did not need to print anything out for my college portfolio, but first things first, when printing any art, you should make it 300 dpi and try printing tests on different papers to make sure you like the quality of the piece. And then make sure that the lighting is to your taste because sometimes it might print too dark.
I’m sorry, I’m not to expert in this field. ^^ Hope it sort of helps!
Anonymous asked you: screenshot of your desktop!
It’s usually full of random artworks and pictures, but I cleaned it all up just for your viewing pleasure~~~
Anonymous asked you: Would you mind explaining your photoshop process? How does it go from the sketchbook piece into the finished artwork? Pictures are a plus!
Woooo, okay. So I first, scan it in. And then I take it to PS where I go [command m] and I play with it’s levels. Then I use the saturation/color levels to make the piece the color I want, or I would select the background space and clean up the white space.
Then I would make multiple layers where I use flat colors to go with my lines. ^^
And this continues on for some time lol Sorry if this isn’t that good of an explanation.
Anonymous asked you: What kind of materials do you use when you draw?
My handy dandy 0.5 mechanical pencil that I got from Chinatown, her trusty sidekick, the kneaded eraser, and the ever faithful Faber Castell ink pens.
