I'm sorry for bother you again, can I ask you about something personal?
What should I do if I want to be good artist?
Is practice good enough?

Reply :

What kind of good artist you wanted to be? I will teach you about the middle path then, because taking the extreme paths on each side is not recommended according to my experience. [super-duper skilled artist who lusts for skills nor starving artist who only draw lazy art and do extremely minimal things]

practice as often as your time permits, for regular art [generic drawing/coloring art] there are 4 rooms in the artist's heart, drawing skills, coloring skills/color theory, art composition skills, and imagination, try to practice all of them if possible. 

And do not compare yourself with other people, some people said it is good to compare yourself with others, to improve your skills sky high , if you still have this ego, the more skilled you are, the more unpleasant you will have if you find someone better than you , Do not think that you are better/equal/ or worse than them, This is one of the 10 fetters that should be discarded [If you wish to live peacefully in this messy world], Try to throw away this ego and practice with calm/peaceful mind, always realize that everyone is equal and balanced, someone who is better at drawing maybe bad at doing other tasks. someone who can't draw is better at doing something else, Artist's life is not just about art. 

[unfortunately, I also wish to teach you that lusting/liking for anything that can be seen with your eyes, is also one of the ten fetters, [I'm trying/learning to discard it too], But this maybe a bit too much to say on art website.

and more importantly, dont forget to help others

I have taught you my favorite simplified way of the artist life [middle path], to improve your skills and to maintain your mental condition without becoming crazy, I hope you could be a good artist with calm mind if you follow my instruction. 

I know my reply doesn't sound so nice to some people, I also open for discussion in this journal.

I just wanted to say, you have one of the most beautiful coloring styles I have ever seen. The way that you can color a rainbow is like if you actually cut a rainbow from the sky and just unleashed the color upon your picture :D

just out of curiosity, do you scan your traditional art? If so, then how do you scan them so perfectly? or do you just adjust the art with a photo editor?

I have been such a huge fan of your work for some time now and I would love to see a Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy in your work.
Myebi Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you very much for being one of my inspirations!

At first I thought your art was good but I didn't understand why all my friends were crazy about you and now, well... I'm still not REALLY fangirling like them (okay almost orz) but I really think you came up being an inspiration for alot of us, deviants :heart:

Keep up the great work emperpep! :iconglompplz:

I'm barely starting an art class in college. Just like your note about how to take the middle route to becoming a good artist, your work is pretty amazing. Hopefully with some hard work, one of these days I can make art that's right next to yours on currently popular list.
