What programs do you use for digital art?
I'm only using Photoshop CS3 so far with my Genius tablet, also use just default brushes, nothing special.

What materials do you use for traditional art?
I do sketches and lineart by mechanical pencil, then color them with Leningrad watercolor.
Paper: Watercolor paper 300gsm CAMPAP/Daler Rowney

How do you manage to keep the watercolours staying so vibrant and manage go achieve such fine detail? It's a problem I've been having for a while now (trying not to wash the colours too much without making the paper crease)?
It doesn't only depend on your skill but also the color and your paper. You should use a kind of paper that is made for watercolor. They are thick enough so they won't be crease when you use a lot of dilute color.
And you should wait patiently with watercolor also. If it's not for some wet effects, I usually have to wait till it's dry entirely before adding another layer.

How do you usually fight an art block?
Relax and wait patiently. Do something to make myself more emo haha-

How long have you been drawing?
About 8 years.

Do you have some sort formal art training or are you self taught?
I'm studying 3rd year at HCM fineart university, before that I learnt by myself and from friends.

What do you struggle with the most in terms of drawing and coloring?
huhm- maybe anatomy and lay-out.

What do you do to improve your anatomy? if it's books, can you recommend a few?
Of course it's good when you learn from books but I usually use my time for observing real human bodies and sketch their motions. I find it easier that way.

What's the longest time you've spent on a certain artwork?
Don't really know. About 17~18 hours maybe.

Did you study color theory? How do you get ideas for your drawings?
Yea I learnt basic theory.
Ideas of my drawings come from everything and everyone around me. A quote/ a film/ a song/ a friend/ a street/ ect. I start to sketch whenever I find something interesting.

What colors do you use for your skin tones?
Normal skin color for CG works. With watercolor, I often use light brown/ red orange with a lot of water/ layers.
