What works for me might not work for you. You should experiment and find the right tool for what you want to do.

I know some people don’t like the faber-castell pens (the ones i use) because they’re too bulky or too expensive or whatever, but they work for me. Some people use expensive engraving tools but I’ve tried them and I found them hard to manipulate and in the end this basic scratching nib I found in a generic art store works just fine.
I started out making my own boards by painting a thick layer of gesso on masonite and sanding it down, it wasn’t great.. and then I found that they sold ready-made claybord and that works much better. But I know some people who find claybord hard to work with…
So I could say “yes I work with faber castell pens i think they’re the best” and then you try them out and find that they don’t work the way you want them to.

In the end, this is not about me not wanting to answer those questions (I think I already detailed what tools I use in a previous ask) but more about making a point —and i know this is going to come off as kinda naive and super corny— that half the fun in art is experimenting, going to the store and buying stuff you’ve never used, playing around with those new tools and hitting that bliss spot when you find the one that feels just right.

Thanks to sbosma I was invited to participate in “Winter is Coming” an ASOIAF (not Game of Thrones) inspired show at LTD. Gallery, sponsored by GRRM himself. 

Unpopular opinion: A Feast for Crows is my favorite book in the series.
Even more unpopular opinion: Brienne’s chapters are my favorite in this book. (although, the chapter at the Quiet Isle is pretty popular for a .. canine reason)

Q

lunaoverthecow asked:

Saw in one of your asks that you were reading Siege and Storm! Did you like it? Do you think you any drawing ideas were inspired from the book? (just asking because that usually happens to me)

A

i liked it very much, can’t wait to read the third book - i kinda want to do some art, the imagery in some of the scenes is very powerful but no time! no time!
