Do you have any original character and allowing people to draw them? 

I've occasionally drawn random people's ocs [and sometimes fanart] on sketchbook in my freetime for practicing purpose.

if you have any oc you can share, feel free to share their reference picture here [If I drew them I will show the picture to you] [I prefer girl character and cute boy :)

btw I can't guarantee that I will definitely draw every characters showing here, so dont expect too much about it, I will only draw them randomly in my freetime.

I just recently started trying to draw anime back in march, and I very recently started trying my hand at using watercolor to paint it in, im loving it so far and im using a grumbacher opaque pan set, im a fan of the colors you use, im still nervous about my paintings looking oversaturated and unnatural, your also realy good at gradients, im still struggling with them, but im sure with practice i'll get it down, anyways keep up the great work, also I noticed that you said you liked drawing peoples OC's, I have a few on my page there a bit rough still, but your free to draw them up if you want, I might also take a few cracks at recreating some of the pictures you have up if thats fine with you

Hello emperpep, if it's not too much to ask, I'd like to learn how to become a skilled artist like yourself. That's not to say that I want to copy your style exactly, I just want to be able to draw characters that look natural and 'right' and to develop my artistic skills. Obviously, practice is key, and this has been demonstrated time and time again. But I'd like to know if you have any additional tips that may aid the progress, since you are an experienced artist. Perhaps things like, how to start a drawing, or what features make characters look more appealing, or maybe tips on drawing backgrounds, etc. If you know of any guides and tutorials to teach beginning artists that would be wonderful. I want to be able to reach a standard where I can draw what comes to my mind with relative ease, ie. without having to erase and redraw lines hundreds of times.
Thank you for reading this far! I understand that being internet famous means that you are undoubtedly always inundated with messages and notifications, so I will be most appreciative of even a short reply.

just draw whatever you think it is fun to draw, and keep doing it [I have been drawing for 11 years btw, since 2004]
when I was your age, I usually drew random anime style artworks and submit them to art community webboard to get some critiques and some nice comments [to kept me energized to draw at that moment]

I found doing timed gesture drawing on gesture drawing websites a nice way to improve drawing skills [my favorite time is 2 minutes, not too long or too short for my taste] , I have to do gesture drawing regularly.
I also drawing anime figure photos with nice angles for practice. [anime figure photos can be found around the internet] 

my favorite gesture drawing websites are……

if you can draw realistic body, you can draw anime body too. 

and for background, you may have to learn how to use perspective first, it is important.

it might take 1 year to 10 years to get what you want, improvement will be slightly noticed overtime, as long as you keep drawing and practicing
Mochimario Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
Thank you for this invaluable advice! I've never heard of gesture drawing before, so I'll give that a go and see if it works out.
Unfortunately, I've always only drawn inanimate objects in the past, because I was scared of drawing humans-human anatomy always seemed to be too complicated for me. Should I start learning how to draw realistic bodies first in order to draw anime bodies? I'm trying to improve heaps over these next two weeks before school resumes C:
emperpep Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2015   General Artist
If you practice and getting used with drawing realistic body , drawing anime body will not be difficult [according to my experience], because anime body is based on realistic, just a little modification 

but if you can only draw anime body and never practice realistic, I cant guarantee that you will be able to draw realistic body flawlessly.

so why dont practice drawing realistic more often to become better at both? this should save more time imo.

i have another question. how do you natural looking gradients with watercolor? everytime i try, it comes out weird and watery. 
emperpep Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2015   General Artist
I think it depends on these 
your paint quality (what is your brand?)
your paper quality (your brand?)
your watercolor controling skills
your paintbrush (it should be soft)
your hand (use soft hand pressure when painting)

I mixed watercolor with proper amount of water, then did a first wash, then put 2nd color beside it and gently wipe the edge between those 2 with soft paintbrush to make gradation (I dont scrub it), and it will flow into each others, btw watercolor with lots of filler and less pure pigment will be more difficult to do this because they wont flow as well as decent watercolor.

i think your drawings are very good. do you think the same? i look at a drawing i thought was good and then i hate it. do you feel the same?
emperpep Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2015   General Artist

Do you care a lot about fugitive colors in your paintings? I know you said you like the thought of your paintings staying the same for years but, I know you'll sometimes use certain colors (Such as the Hydrus watercolor) that are fugitive. Do you not worry as much because you keep them in a binder away from sunlight and other things that may effect the image? 
emperpep Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2015   General Artist
I do care about color lightfastness , which is why I rarely used copic or dye based marker, btw Dr.Ph.Martin hydrus watercolors seem to be lightfast, but it is their Radiant Concentrated watercolors which are not lightfast [ they are made from dye, but hydrus are made from grounded pigment like regular watercolor]

and I mostly keep my pictures inside ringed binders, some of them are being framed and hanging on the wall, but they are not contacting with sunlight or dampness/liquid spill.

I see, thank you very much for your answer. :)

How do you do the transparent glazing technique? I tried but nothing works out like yours
emperpep Featured By Owner Edited Jun 9, 2015   General Artist
according to your ''nothing works out like yours'' what does your result look like btw? mind showing a photos or description? 

try adding a bit more water in your watercolor to make it more transparent [but still you have to experiment with it to know proper mixing quantity between water and paints], do not apply very thick/opaque paint for glazing, some colors with chalky characteristic [such as holbein lilac,lavender/any color with white pigment [PW] might be a bit more difficult and have less transparent result for glazing, I usually avoid it nowadays [ as I found transparent colors are prettier for watercolor painting]

[for example ,to achieve transparent lavender color,  try purer color such as ultramarine diluted with water]

using decent quality colors and paper also affect the result too [do you still use campap?, I count this paper as decent quality paper for my standard]
Daifuno Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2015  Student General Artist
I still use campap sometimes canson,but the "nothing looks like yours" means that the colour always fades out and there will always be lines like the water spot at the colour I'm using as a shade
emperpep Featured By Owner Edited Jun 9, 2015   General Artist
if you still use holbein, their drawback is that they fade noticeably when dry,[lets alone all lower student grade watercolors in this discussion, to achieve decent result, we will talk about best artist quality watercolors]

I didnt clearly notice holbein fade problem when using it for base layer, but problem will start showing when building several layers of high chroma color, it was like they will keep fading and take forever to build up color to achieve decent color saturation.

if you could afford other brands with good pigment strength as well, it would be nice [at least better than using only one brand if you are serious about watercolor painting, my recommendation for high pigment strength watercolor are Daniel Smith, MGraham, Winsor&Newton [artist quality not cotman] but I recommend more for the first 2 [danielsmith and mgraham]

[ this doesnt mean that you should stop using Holbein at all, but to eliminate the fade problem and make glazing easier, I found using other brands a solution]  because I am also tired building up several layers of fading colors with holbein [3-4-5 layers for holbein but 2-3 layers for those brands [went up to 3 layers is a very rare case for them], sometimes just 1 layer is saturated enough without additional wash]
