2. Show your pencil case and what’s inside.
What I bring with me varies when I’m on the go, but these are the usual items crammed in my pencil case - brush pens, pigment liners, erasers, mechanical pencils (with both regular and blue graphite) white gel pen, etc. I also usually have colored pigment liners along as well - I love sketching with them.
4. Lineart or coloring?
6. Draw a same pic with your dominant and non-dominant hand.
8. Do you listen to music when you draw? Favorites?
All the time! That, or I’ll listen to podcasts/audio dramas/audiobooks. I also like watching/listening to tv shows while I work if what I’m working on allows for it (netflix + my ipad to the side of my laptop helps tremendously as a makeshift dual-monitor. Kind of.), though they need to be shows that allow for me to divide my attention (crime procedurals are good for this.)
My music tastes are pretty eclectic so what I listen to in general varies a lot, but I usually prefer high-energy stuff like rock, techno, or epic soundtracks while drawing. Alternative pop-ish stuff as well. I tend to go back to The Smiths a lot, and I’ve got an in-progress playlist of music featured on Supernatural that gets a lot of listening time. Of Monsters and Men, Imagine Dragons, Mumford & Sons, Bastille, and Owl City are regular favorites. Celtic/Scottish rock such as Orthodox Celts and Runrig are also very high up on my music-to-draw-to list. Moody Blues too. And that’s just a sampling - really just depends on my mood and what I’m drawing.
Also: Chicken Run - Building the Crate. Always always always.
10. Least favorite thing to draw?
Probably buildings and mechanical constructs? Mostly because I suck at them and always feel terribly unimaginative when I go to draw them (also, perspective? What’s that?) That’s something I’m hoping to change, though! Practice, practice, practice and all that jazz.
12. Any weird artist behavior you admit doing?
Probably people watching? Especially when I find someone particularly interesting or with a similar build to one of my characters - I’ll keep trying to snatch glances so I can study them without looking like I’m staring. Also I never got to take any figure drawing courses in school (yeeeeeeah, not something I’m terribly thrilled about) and the nearest local sessions are really difficult for me to get to, so a lot of what (little) I know about anatomy is largely from people watching and the occasional bit of life drawing when I’m out and about.
I suppose being spacey as well, to the point that I worry I come across as aloof - I’m not, I promise! I just get lost in thought super easily and sometimes have difficulties finding my way back to the present. I swear I spend half my time at work having to apologize to customers for spacing out for a second and forgetting whether they said “paper” or “plastic” (fortunately they typically find it amusing, or are even doing it themselves at the same time. Fellow cashiers, you know how it goes.)

4. Lineart or coloring?
It’s kind of a tough call because I enjoy (and hate, at times) both, but I’d have to go with lineart - I love love LOVE inking (except for the rare moments when I don’t! I think we all know that feeling.) I relish the challenge of trying to recapture the energy of my sketches the second time around, toying with line lightness and thickness, and deciding whether to go a neat and tidy route or rough and messy. My favorite ways to ink are digitally with Manga Studio or traditionally with a brush :D
9. Favorite thing to draw?
Living* beings! Be they human, monster, animal, robot, alien, spectral, etc. etc. etc. - anything or anyone I can try and and imbue with some sort of personality and sense of character.
Also fanart because it’s the best way I’ve got to express my love of shows/movies/books/etc. so I don’t babble the ears off of uninterested/semi-interested family members.
*definition of “living” here being very open to interpretation. Robots and ghosts are totally “alive” in my book. As are the household appliances in that crazy toaster film we all hopefully watched as kids.
