FAQ

What medium do you use the most?
Mainly digital now since it's a lot neater compared to the other mediums. However art classes at school still require me to use traditional mediums such as paints, photography, graphite, and such. So occasionally you may see my school stuff on here.

What program(s) and device(s) do you use?
Photoshop CS6 and my handy dandy Wacom Bamboo Create tablet.

I saw your art posted somewhere else.
I usually go by the username cynthia-2901 or cynthia2901 or cynthia_2901, or you know, some other variation of it. If you think that there's a possibility of the account not being owned by yours truly, please please please don't hesitate to tell me.

Are you self-taught?
In digital art, pretty much. Honestly speaking, art classes never really taught me much. They just gave me prompts so I guess I'm pretty much self taught?

Any advice for people starting out in the digital medium?
Okay listen up you little beanies. The reason I saved up my money and convinced my father to get me a tablet was because of the amazing digital art I saw floating around on DA. Silly 13-14 year old me thought that by getting a tablet, my art skills would magically improve. HO HO HO WELL YOU'RE IN FOR A WILD RIDE. Using a tablet was so hard in the beginning it made me abandon digital art for a whole year. I'm not even joking. It requires great hand-eye coordination, a skill I lacked severely in my preteens. Digital art definitely has its amazing benefits such as different textures, an endless colour palette, really awesome styles to try out, and much more. However, before jumping straight to digital art, I would advice you to practice more on your traditional skills. Learn about value, anatomy, perspective, colours, and as many elements as you can think of. Get a basic understanding before jumping into digital art. Once you do that, you can start refining your skills using the tablet and you'll quickly see improvement in your elements.

Do you do commissions?
Not constantly since school work can be very time consuming. However, I'll occasionally open it up during holidays and such. But only for limited slots, or style.

How about requests/art trades/collaborations?
Requests: Only when I open up a few slots.
Art Trades: Note me about it and we'll see.
Collaborations: MOSTLY YES CAUSE LETS WORK TOGETHER OMG. Workload has to be discussed over notes though.

Hey everyone!

It's been such a long long time since I've been on this account.  I've been meaning to make a journal about this for a REALLY long time now but I keep putting it off but here it is.  I'm gonna start off with some life updates for anyone interested.  If not, please skip to the dotted line below.

I'm currently finishing up my IB Diploma with only two more subjects to go.  Pyschology HL paper 2 & 3 and Environmental Systems and Societies SL paper 1 & 2.  I'm busy af trying to pass and get credit for university at the moment so argghhhh. 

University!  I also got into a really awesome university which I'm really excited to go to.  It's located in Vancouver and I can't wait to see it.  I heard from people who toured that it was really really awesome.  I am unfortunately not allowed to continue art in my university years.  My father stated that he would only pay for tuition or allow me to go if it was specifically that university (due to name) and that specialization (business school).  As an international student who only applied to American schools and one Canadian university, if I don't proof I can pay college tuition, I'm not allowed any loans or admission and since I didn't apply to any Singaporean ones, I would basically be taking a gap year or not university at all.  Which would result in me being thrown out so I'm actually really really upset about this and quite honestly don't see a bright future for me ahead. 

Nevertheless, I am determined to make the best out of my shitty situation and promise myself that I will work hard to improve on my art to a point where I can not only be satisfied with my art but hopefully make a small side income or in the long run, a stable income, based off of it.

ART UPDATE

I haven't been neglecting art.  I've actually been quite involved in art making with my IB Art HL course and my teacher is honestly driving everyone insane.  I'm just glad I don't have to see her again.  I'll be posting pictures of them on my new account when IB is done grading them to avoid plagiarism and stuff.

I have also since moved to a new account which I also created a long time ago but haven't got active until recently a month or two ago.  I have also created a new branding name for myself and a signature for my works which I'm finally quite satisfied with.  So without further ado, here is my new account:

:iconcynthistic:

If you guys would like to continue supporting me over there it would really mean the world to me.  I remember every single one of you and especially the ones that have spoke to me and shared things with me.  Thank you all for the amazing teenage years I spent on this account.  I've definitely grown a lot from the awkward 13-14 year old anime drawing child to someone who's still developing her own means of art making.

Thank you!
Cynthia
