draa's blog for thoughts, sketches, and everything in between.

Dear Anon A: Thank you so much! Well I wouldn’t say they’re fancy haha. In general I use whatever I had on hand. However recently I’ve been using Tombow pencils and Palamino Blackwings a lot :). Hello Anon B: That’s totally awesome by me! Flattering actually :) There are certain cases where’d I’d prefer otherwise, but either way it can’t hurt to ask!Hey Anon C: I’m sorry that you feel that way, I’ve mentioned before that it really isn’t a big deal. In the end it is a piece of paper, (especially if you’re just taking inspiration from the use of a doily). However, if it makes you uncomfortable then just do what feels right to you.————————————RE: Asks (To get a reply sooner)For a while I’ve been considering turning off Anon asks. Mostly because I want to reduce the number of text posts on my tumblog. However I do realize that not everyone who sends me an ask has a tumblr account, or that they simply wish to remain anon.So if you do have an account and want to ask me something, I’ll be able to answer your question much sooner if you don’t send it as anon (as I wait to gather a few before answering them in a group). I always answer them privately so you don’t have to worry about me posting your question (unless you specify that you don’t mind).

Would you be bothered by others doing something similar to your daily doilies?

Giveaway winner!
Thank you everyone who entered the giveaway draw for the 

"Gold Sand" piece! I collected a total of 326 entries from 
Facebook and Instagram. Endless thanks for everyone’s support,
I say this every time but I really am happy to have you all here with
me on this endless journey. 

Congrats to “thedoodlebug” from Instagram! I’ll be contacting the winner shortly to gather information for shipping :)

What materials do you use for your drawings or paintings?

draabbles answered:

For dry media, just whatever HB, B, or 2B pencil I have lying around combined with a red col-erase pencil. Tombow and Palamino are my favourites at the moment. Sometimes I like choosing some pencil crayon colors for accents. (I use this combination on my doilies)

As for paints, I have my own range of brushes but I often just end up using the Pentel aquash for convenience. I have a windsor and newton watercolor compact as well as some individual jars of FW inks. Lately I’ve bought a lot of Holbein gouache and watercolor tubes, and the list kind of goes on…

I like experimenting with materials so it changes often but I plan to use my Facebook page for art supply reviews as well! So stay tuned for those!

To Anon #1: Thank you Anon! Hmm outlines, well I would either just line with a fine-tipped brush afterwards with watercolors, or use watercolor pencil for precision!To Anon #2: Thank you! So very sweet of you. I’m really grateful/happy when people take the time to leave such nice messages :)

hello draa! sorry if this has been asked before but is one of your theme header a fanart of ni no kuni? I'd like to say that it's super pretty ;v;

Hi! Thank you! And yes it is Oliver from Ni No Kuni, one of them at least, they switch around haha. I should probably update with some newer ones :)
