1) Anonymous asked you:
What do you use to digitally line art and what are your settings? I can’t paint for the life of me and I love how your lines are smooth yet somewhat sharp if that even makes sense lol
I usually use sketchbook pro, pencil tool. I do have a “custom” one, but really it’s identical to the pencil tool, just unlimited in size. (The default pencil tool can’t get any bigger past a certain point.) Hope that helped!

I love your comic IDFracture is there going to be more chapters in the future?
There definitely will be!! Thanks for the support <3

Ms. Yana, how did you ever develop such good draftsmanship? My sketches are always a big poopy mess of lines, but yours are so confident and accurate. Does it just come from lots and lots of drawing, or were there certain things you studied or practiced? ; A ;
You are too kind hahaha, thank you ;_; I think mostly it’s because i drew a lot haha. Also i’m (..sort of) a neat person by nature, so i always put a focus on cleaner/clearer lines ect.

Hi, I’ve been following you for a looong long time, and have read all IDfracture. I’ve seen some things on your dA about single displacement and HON, but is there anywhere you officially tell those stories? A comic or something? Because I’d love to know more about those :( they seem so interesting!
Ah hearing things like that is like eating cake haha <3 unfortunately, i don’t officially tell those stories anywhere yet, but i am planning and planning and planning for the future OTL;; forever planning. I will try to post more drawings/snippets of info though!! Thanks for the support it means the world to me alskhdlash

Would you post something showing your art progression from the past couple of years to now? If you have already would you mind posting a link? I love your art and enjoy seeing how amazing artist’s (such as your self) skills have developed :)
I have an outdated one here: http://cosmicspectrumm.deviantart.com/art/Mee-too-lol-151304013 …..it’s pretty outdated though haha. I might do another one in the future, but i’m afraid the progress hasn’t been too noticeable OTL;

I know you’re not too fond of cgi animation itself, but are there any movies in cgi that you do like?
Hm…. sorry i actually can’t remember any specific ones haha. I liked most Pixar movies that i’ve seen, but more for the story.I really like How to Train Your Dragon too.
I just specifically disliked Frozen, Tangled (though after watching Frozen, Tangled suddenly seemed like a masterpiece hahaha), Rise of the Guardians and Brave.
