college student. she/her. surfer
Hi everyone! My name is Sweets, your resident art gusher and design lover that's trying to get better at art herself! I'm just a dumb college student currently working towards her Cybersecurity degree and spends what little free time she has surfing or daydreaming stories I'll never get around to writing.
I absolutely love seeing everyone's art, everyone's so uniquely talented and creative and I'm so lucky to even be able to see what people come up with. That being said, please feel free to message me anytime if you ever want to show me some of your lovely art or are looking for a trade. I love whimsical characters or all sorts and although most of my characters are forever-homed or very tentative you're more than welcome to come and try to tempt me!
Hello hello everyone!!
As always I hope everyone’s doing well and staying safe out there! And I hope nobody minds this little bulletin I’m tossing out there to the amazing art communities on Toyhouse!
After a long time of debating I’ve decided to jump headfirst into art again, and since college is coming up again anyhow I decided to get myself a new iPad Pro 12.9 inch with an Apple Pencil and procreate, just to get started with something I know a lot of people are comfortable using!! I adore the program to bits, but of course I’m not a master of any sort right off the bat and I’m a tad lost on how to get started! So I thought why not reach out to the amazing people here I’ve had the utmost privilege of getting to know over the years!
So please, help a tired college gal out! I’d just love any advice or links to any tutorials at all or anything at all to help teach me! I’m also not quite fond of any of the default brushes yet (although HB and 6B pencil are my mains so far, although I feel like I have to go through the lines a few times and god is bucket filling those spaces with color is hard!) so I’d love links to any premade brushes y’all especially enjoy, free or not! I’ve obviously been a huge fan of art for so long but I’ve never had the opportunity myself to really dive into it, so I’m over the moon I get to do it now! And my work may not be the best, or even good, but it’s mine and I’m gonna enjoy doing it and that’s all that matters!
Thank you all so darn much in advance!! I know people get started at this so much younger than me, but better late to the party than never! I want to make everyone awful little fanarts and doodles and ahh I can’t color or anything to save my life please help this clueless gal out so she can surprise people with silly fanart!!
