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'd like to see what you could do with an Alice in Wonderland theme artwork. Tons of colors, cheshire cat, mushrooms, go crazy!  Maybe do two, a nice colorful one and a dark semi evil one, or mix the two in one masterpiece. Let me know what you think...

Hello, I noticed you answer questions. I hope it's not to much of a bother, but how do you do your light rays effect on watercolor?

Should a begginer start with gouache or watercolor? Is it alright to bend the two?
emperpep Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2014  Student General Artist
I used airbrush and white gouache, with 2 rulers.

it is up to people's preference to start with gouache or watercolor, I practiced using gouache before using watercolor though, because it feel somewhat easier to use, and it is alright to blend them since they are both water based. 
BallaRinas Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2014  Student Interface Designer
Thank you very much, I appreciate it :D

Daifuku-dono Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2014  New member Student General Artist
Hello, I was just wondering if you wet your watercolor paper before adding the colors and blending them, and how do control the amount of water on your paper? I really like the bleeding technique you used at Tamano's tail... and do you recommend beginners to use masking fluid because I'm debating whether I should  buy it or not.. I really love your artwork and Thank you
emperpep Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2014  Student General Artist
If I want to make foggy/hazy effect, I will wet the paper [only specific area that I want to paint] and then add paint, then let it flow for itself

:Amount of water on paper, I will add proper amount which is not too wet or the paper will bend, or not too dry or wet in wet technique or blending will not work. you have to experiment with it yourself, It may require many attempts until you get it.

and effect of her tail is called ''backrun'', Just add pure water on damp color and those effects will occur.

and masking fluid depends on your painting style, but I rarely used it these days as I prefer using copic opaque white to paint highlight [ I don't care about those purist extremists :p ] , so it ended up hardened in the bottle.

Dont forget to use cheap old brush to apply masking fluid though, this thing destroyed my best brush on the first experimentation with it. [blame my lack of knowledge]

Thank you for your reply and do you stretch your watercolor paper?If so, How?
