Oh. Hi. So. How are you holding up? BECAUSE I'M A POTATO. - GLaDOS
A word with ShaylynKM
What is your field, and how did you get in?
I'm a digital artist for the most part, but I like drawing in pencil/pen/coloured pencils and stuff like that too. I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil, but I started practicing seriously in 2010 when I wanted to learn how to draw manga.
Where do you want your Journey to lead you?
I want to be happy and make others happy.
What would you like to achieve within the next year?
More webcomic chapters!
So far, how have you been developing your skills?
I practice frequently! Recently, I've been googling images of things and drawing them observationally in my sketchbook. I've also been taking college courses.
Where does your motivation come from?
I have to draw like I have to eat.
Where do you go when you seek inspiration?
I either sit on a swing and listen to music (and thus finding inspiration either from the music or from my own emotions), or look at other people's art.
What are some of your favorite artists and genres?
There are so many artists who have inspired me growing up, I'm not even sure I can name them all. :'D So obligatory "thank you" to all who have helped me on my journey. As for genres, I like surrealism.
What are some of your favorite writers and books?
I'm reading Harry Potter and Attack on Titan right now (manga counts, right?). o u o The Hunger Games is also one of my favourite series.
What do you listen to?
Good golly, there isn't enough space here. I've been listening to stuff like The Neighborhood and Arctic Monkeys lately.
What are some of your favorite movies and filmmakers?
I've seen a couple Miyazaki films, and "Spirited Away" is my favourite.
What is your favorite website?
Comicfury, Wysp, Youtube, Tumblr, Reddit... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
