No correct me if I'm wrong, but are there two sides to toys? Like I would assume I'm a toy because I'm a beginner, but I also see people using it negatively towards more of, I'm assuming, ignorant artists? Is there a difference? Anyways, thanks, Dude, and thanks for all the tips and guides.
Well being toy isn’t restricted to one or two things specifically because theirs alot that can make someone toy and many ways to be a toy but you have the basic idea right. Things such as skill level, knowledge of the game, following the rules, being disrespectful and ignorance can all be things that make someone toy or not. You can have all the positives of those qualities but if you have 1 negative then that makes you toy. Their are more things that can make people toy but you pretty much already understand the gist of it.Lol glad you like the tips , good luck on your journey in graffiti.
Anonymous said: hey! I love your videos very educative & gun to watch!! Ive been "drawing" graffiti for about 7 yrs ... Still I horrible !! why because motivation wasnt there! why because of a lack of inspiration! I rarely find myself grabbing a pencil and not struggling drawing something... and during those 7 yrs Ive stop for months even years before doing it again!! & that goes for portrait drawing as well! I would like any tips to help me get inspirations ~ Seren
Haha thanks for the support!
Hmmm inspiration is a hard one because what inspires me may not inspire you so for anyone to give advice on getting inspiration isn’t really too accurate to the individual asking the question. However I can say drawing from things you love, or drawing from life experiences is a great way to get inspired for many artists. I know from personal experience both portraits and graffiti can become boring to do (not saying this is your same problem) but when they become boring I begin doing a different art form that I know I suck at but want to get better at, for example cartoons. When doing this I’m not expecting to draw anything good because I know I’m not good at it so my expectations are lowered and from there I’m able to just focus on having fun rather than focusing on drawing a good picture. Now the great part to this is that you’re learning another art form so now when you go back to portraits and graffiti, you can then apply these new techniques into your portraits and graffiti to keep things fresh and new for yourself. Thats how I deal with inspiration problems,I hope it works for you.

I haven’t in a while because it creates a ton of negativity on the channel and I didn’t like that.

Feel free to use the hell out of that ruler lol.
coatcaine said: Hi i just wanted to say that you are incredibly talented and your paintings are amazing. I have a question, for the digital paintings do you use a computer mouse or one of those drawing pad usb pens?
Hey sorry I haven’t gotten back to you much much sooner, I literally just got access to my tumblr again as I had a problem with getting on tumblr for nearly the past year. If you’re still wondering what I used for the digital paintings I use one of those usb pads called tablets.You can get them relatively cheap depending on the model you want. Mine is quite old (about 5 or 6 years) and I got it for $30 on ebay. I cant seem to fine my specific model but any would work. Once again sorry I took so long.
WATCH THE VIDEO HERE
Painting of Jesse Pinkman from breaking bad.Cant believe the show is over now! What a ride its been, seeing each character change and grow. Its crazy going from the first episode and seeing how everyone was then going to the last bunch of episodes and seeing how much changed.
New portrait is up! Tell me, if you had to kill off one person from this show, who would you kill off? I would kill off Walter JR. I hate that kid, damn he gets on my nerves! I gota say, he is a good actor though!
New painting is up and damn was it fun! I hope you guys love it. Let me know what you think!
STALK ME HERE!
