How do you make your characters look so real and are they meant to look nearly the same in facial structure and what not?

Loads of references and a ton of time rendering. I don’t really aim for my characters to look similar; maybe that’s something I subconsciously do while rendering. I do know that I have a soft spot for painting freckled girls. I just love freckles!

So I’m going a bit print crazy and have also set up an Inprnt store! I’ve heard a lot of good things about the quality of their prints so I thought why not? For those of you who are interested in great quality giclée prints as well as phone and tablet cases, follow this link:

1. Thanks Anon! I don’t know a huge amount about how one gets onto tumblr radar; I was just super lucky to have been picked out of the blue. I do think that a great way to get your work out there and recognised is to submit it to popular tumblr blogs and galleries. Eat sleep draw and Tumblr Open Arts are both good places to start; you could even try Art for adults (if you enjoy drawing bodacious babes). I hope this helps!
2. Thank you! I currently freelance. I’m not too fussy when it comes to my dream job, I just want to be able to work in a studio (locally or abroad) and simply do what I love to do; be creative. Actually, scratch that. I’d love to be paid to read books, cuddle animals and drink tea all day; that would be a pretty cool. 
3. Most of my work is created in Photoshop (I might use Illustrator for the odd vector shape or two).
4. Currently Optica (with a few tweaks to the CSS).
