Q: you are amazing and your works are so beautiful I could get a tattoo with some of your drawings?

Of course! I’m stoked you like my art - please show me a photo if you do get the tat! :)

Left: first sketch, right: final! My sketches are unintentionally like a secret code that no one understands… How about you guys? Are you the clean or messy type? ๐Ÿ˜ (at facebook.com/icecubeddd)

Commission for a sweet couple’s Anniversary. The reflection shows their wedding location while the top part shows their vow renewal in Hawaii. It was a fun painting and challenging in many ways! :)
PS - Sorry guys for the late note replies, I’m just crazy busy these days and I’m hoping to reply you guys soon. I’ll be making a FAQ so please feel free to shoot me any questions you might have (also will be making a list of my materials for those who were interested!)
WIP #2 :) getting there!  (at facebook.com/icecubeddd)

Last year I gave permission to a choir group to use my artwork on their DVD cover and promotional materials - today I received the DVD and letter from Japan. ๐Ÿ˜thank you Kotaro-san and Team Frogman! โค๏ธ
I started picking up watercolor seriously in 2010. After many many hideous drawings, this was one of the first that I was proud of! For those who wants to improve themselves or try something new - it’s never too late and it is always possible! ๐Ÿ˜˜ Have a good day guys :) (at facebook.com/icecubeddd)

HM I’ve not read much manga in recent years (mostly due to lack of time) but one of my all time favourites which I’m up to date with is One Piece! Other manga that I loved from the top of my head are: Honey & Clover, Full Metal Alchemist, Nana (and other Ai Yazawa works), Hourou Musuko, Monster, etc. Whilst I think all of these have great art, the story is always the deciding factor. :) I couldn’t read a manga purely just for the art - mostly because I’d have short attention span.ย

OH man.

I’m pretty weak at anatomy, perspective and background. This makes my art sometimes repetitive because what I can actually draw is limited. Last year I got pretty sick of my own art after drawing a million head shots, so now at least I try to draw whole bodies - but I still find my art to be too flat. There’s a million things I’m not good at - light source, colour theory, facial expressions, character design, drawing males, etc etc etc.ย 

This is more what I enjoy than what is my strength - but that would be watercolours. It seemed a weird transition to go from digital to traditional media but ever since I started using watercolours, drawing has become even more enjoyable. It’s changed my style a lot! :)

Thanks for the questions :D!
