2. Some Thoughts about Art Practice
Hi, I’m Angela, an illustrator who draws architecture, store fronts and sometimes characters. Even though I did not go to art school and my major has nothing to do with art, I have been practicing drawing since I was a kid.
I learned sketch, watercolor and charcoal drawing in art studios. Those experiences really helped me to build a solid fundamental artistic skills. Japanese animation and manga have been the biggest influences in my art journey. I also get my inspiration from nature, people and other artists’ works. Photography is my favorite hobby other than drawing.
In my spare time, I love to shoot portrait photos for my family and friends. So when I first started digital drawing in 2020, my experience in photo editing played a huge role in helping me understand layers, blending mode, digital brushes, etc. I have been practicing drawing digitally everyday since March 2020.
And now I am ready to share with you my experience and artistic recipes.
