AMA Meme: art edition  
I'm so not good at memes but I gotta start somewhere. Ganked from the awesome angelita26, only mine is art edition instead of writing edition :D

Ask me anything about creating art.

ROTF. I was thinking of doing that one tomorrow... ;)

So... Which art are your the most proud of?
kanarek13kanarek13 on August 19th, 2015 11:59 am (UTC)
And that is a very difficult question :D I think I'll go with those that were the most difficult to make, like the Archon painting for Elr or the Call of the Void cover with vampire Neal. Both of them are made up of an ridiculous amount of layers, filters, textures, it took me ages to create them but once they were done - YAY!

But I also have those few P/N manips, some of them still unposted, which make me ridiculously happy. Two of them are for Anod's upcoming stories :D

Favorite fandom to create art for?
kanarek13kanarek13 on August 19th, 2015 11:29 am (UTC)
White Collar, of course. I'm not really creating art for any other fandom. I sometimes take a detour through another fandom like SPN if a fellow collar is in need of art, but I'm 100% White Collar :D

*pets pretty boys* :D

Who do you prefer to whump the most, Peter or Neal?

What image are you most eager to find for a manip?

(I think I know the answer to this one)

kanarek13kanarek13 on August 19th, 2015 12:11 pm (UTC)
Oh, God, lol... that is actually changing on a regular basis, lol... anything that would allow me to create a beautiful scene with the boys together - that one is always at the top of my list and I am browsing websites in constant search of boy pics I could use :D. That and wings because I have fallen in love with images of our boys with wings ♥

I have probably mentioned a few others to you which I now - AS USUAL, my friend :P - simply don't remember, LOL.

What is your favorite part of creating art?
kanarek13kanarek13 on August 19th, 2015 11:31 am (UTC)
From the creative point of view, it's when I find the perfect images for my project and everything finally comes together in a nice way :D

From the technical point of view, ever since I got myself that Wacom tablet, I LOVE extracting ppl and objects from background, it's my favorite part of the process, lol :D

How did you start creating WC art?
kanarek13kanarek13 on August 19th, 2015 11:36 am (UTC)
Oh, that was a few years ago when I was still part of the USA network forum, they had a fanart thread and one or two people were regularly posting their creations. At that time I was vaguely familiar with GIMP on a very basic level but the show was so inspiring and the boys so gorgeous, I decided to see if I could create something :D

I started reading a lot of tutorials, trying them out, it was 100% trial and error, heee, but I got so fascinated by all of it - and never grew tired or discouraged :D

And here I am :P

Is it easier to create an original artwork or a artwork for a story already written.
kanarek13kanarek13 on August 19th, 2015 11:52 am (UTC)
I would say it depends on the circumstances. On one hand, if I already have a story, I can base the art on the contents of said story... but on the other hand, when there is no story, I'm free to create whatever I wish without having to include any particular elements :D Sometimes the first one is easier, sometimes the second one :D

What's your favorite genre to create? (Fluff, angst,...) Or alternatively, what's your favorite thing in your art?
kanarek13kanarek13 on August 19th, 2015 11:50 am (UTC)
hmmm... I like creating various genres, as long as there are resources that can help me put something together, I'm good. But I think I actually have a particular fondness to smut, LOL!!! Since we don't have any canon slashiness, every manip of the boys being together makes me ridiculously happy :D

And my favorite thing in art? I would say mixing various texture AND applying various filters :D

What do you like about art as a medium?
kanarek13kanarek13 on August 21st, 2015 05:06 pm (UTC)
I'd say it would be the opportunity to show different feelings/scenarios with one art piece, even if I make something that seems pretty straightforward, when my flist leaves me comments - it turns out different people find completely different things in it :D I love that :D

Do you think about your art when you are not at the computer? When you wait around in real life, like at a station, do you already compose things in your head? (and then try not to forget them until you are home) Or do you just open a blank page and let it come to you?
kanarek13kanarek13 on September 2nd, 2015 09:07 am (UTC)
Oh, yes, I think about it all the time, my brain is corrupted to a point of no return, I'm constantly trying to come up with ways to make an idea work, trying to decide which one of our boys to use, what photos I would need, heee :D

If I happen to come up with something I really love, I'm at my computer the minute I walk through the door :D When I have that extra dose of inspiration, I never let it go to waste :D
