Introducing ArtStroke

Hello, everyone! I know I haven't been posting a lot lately, but just to show you I'm alive, I figured I'd submit something. Recently, I was privileged by an offer from DeviantART to beta test their new wearable device called ArtStroke. At first, I wasn't sure if it was the right thing for me because I tend to draw extremely small and I wasn't confident in the accuracy of the device to capture all of my movements - well I was wrong.

I am actually surprised by how encouraging it is to have all of my productivity captured and my progress easily trackable on my phone. Lately, I haven't had too much free time to draw, but ArtStroke has motivated me to even pick up the pencil during my break at work and get the creative juices flowing (so much sunlight to use at work and I didn't even notice)!

I hope to keep using my new ArtStroke to track my progression and hopefully get myself fully out of this mild art block I seem to be experiencing.

I would so steal your hat, but it looks way better on you than it would on me. I don't think I could pull it off. :XD:
(plus stealing is wrong.)
Also, drawing = awesome. :D

Haha thank you! I have to admit I have been drawing so little lately that I didn't actually have anything to show in my sketchbook and had to scan and Photoshop on an old drawing from years ago OTL

Good God though, your drawings are so flawless and immaculate.
It hurts, ahhh you must have practiced so hard to get where you are.
It's inspiring and the detail you put into your work is outstanding...*quivers with humility*

And as a fox i must say ifl your hat :iconcraiplz:

Thank you for the compliments! It's gotten to where people ask me where my hat is if I don't have it on at work xD Or where people recognize me and I have no idea who they are. As for drawing, it helps that one of my favorite tools to make "lineart" with is pencil. Usually I will draw the sketch super lightly or gently lift some of it off with an eraser before going back over with the final pencil.

FoxDragonLover Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
LOL i take it you're quite fond of that hat!! XD
Ah yeah lol, i bet you encounter a few fans here and there.

I see!
I use pencil, though a little harshly ^^''
I go over it with ink, then let it dry before erasing the pencil all together.
It's neat how everyone has such different styles and techniques, all your art in general just blows me away.
I try not to pry or bug very well-known or talented artists because i know how busy they are, but sometimes i just can't resist :D
Keep doing what you do!

Awe you dont bug me! I love to interact with people ;o;
I sometimes do that too, where I ink with the pen and erase the pencil. But I find that doing lineart in the same pencil as the sketch helps me control the lines better c:

Oh yeah, like sometimes the sketch is perfect, but then you just miss this 'one' little line and it's like -- Laser Rage "NOOOOOOOOO" XD

Oh my gosh that reaction icon is great! xD Yeah especially when it's something like a fat micron and there's NO WAY for you to cover that up. The worst is when you draw a background line over something in the foreground you haven't lined yet OTL

FoxDragonLover Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
AHAHA it's one of my favs XD
YES, UGH!
Fat micron pen, that made me giggle XD
Microns rock but they sure are good at ruining stuff, too. :>

I think the reason i personally don't stick with graphite anymore is because it smears EVERYWHERE and when i'm drawing i just literally cannot wait to get rid of it and be left with my inked pic XD
Charcoal, pastel, graphite, it all hates me. :"U
