Artist of the Moment


Visit my shop View my bio

Hi everyone! I'm currently in my last year of university, graduating in May next year! I love art and I've tried my hand at various things such as drawing anime/chibis/doodles but it seems like I'm better at doing pixel art, so I've stuck with that since. I'm self-taught, so I'm still experimenting around with different styles. I've been running an active shop for over a year with a few hiatuses in between. I love GASR as it has a great community where I can interact with fellow artists and art lovers :) I've made many friends here over the years and I hope that continues for a long time to come!

Soooo, lately i've been wanting to improve in terms of drawings from scratch,
and tbh I am a newbie when it comes to drawing, i've been colecting tuts all over DA, and I wanted to know what canvas size you guys recomed to start drawing for a newbie like me

Thanks in advance!

mm I always draw in 2800x3200 o3o''
or 800x1200 for 1 drawing

its better to draw in a big canvas so that you could also add a couple details in it
but with a big canvas, try to avoid to zoom in really close while drawing <: (makes that mistake alot lol)

i personally start at like width 1000 and height 700 and size up if i need to, (which i usually do)
It's the first option for canvas sizes in the 1000's range.
