Where are you from?
I'm french and I am really sorry for the english mistakes by the way. I do my best!
How old are you?
I was born on November 5th, 1987. Do the math!
Did you study arts?
I only took Arts as an option in highschool and it lasted 3 years but I never learnt how to draw in those classes. It was almost only Art history and visual arts (so paint…blaaah).
After that, I was in an Introductory course of art, in a small art school but it was really useless and I quit when the year was over. Almost all I know is self-taught.
Did you study something else instead?
Yes I did. I got my Bachelor’s degree in Archaeology back in 2011 and I started a Master’s degree but I never finished it. I started working as a freelance artist during 2011 and I couldn’t handle studies and job at the same time.
What programs and tools do you use?
Everything starts with a paper leaf and a mechanical pencil.
Then I add colors thanks to Photoshop CS6 and a Wacom Cintiq 12WX. I only and almost exclusively use basic brushes.
On the average, how much time do you spend on one drawing?
I have no idea, people keep asking me this for years and I still have no answer to give XD
A sketch can take between 30min-2hours according to the details (or between a wolf and a human). Coloring and shading would take about +/-2 hours
And a detailed background takes forever when I decide to do the things well. I don't know...between 2+ and 6 hours? I never look at the clock while drawing, I don't notice the time passing!
Do you take requests, trades or collabs?
I never take requests.
I do take trades once in a while as well as collabs.
How can I have a drawing then?
I’d be please to draw for you but you need to pay for this! You will find everything you need just here : pample.deviantart.com/journal/…
When did you start drawing?
When I was able to hold a pencil Drawing have always been one my biggest hobby.
What do you do for a living?
I am a freelancing illustrator. I don't make a living with commissions. Commissions are not a job imo. I have professional contracts with professional publishers. You can find my pro book just here : clemi.ultra-book.com/book .
Can I ask you a question about your personal life?
Well I've nothing to hide if someone asks me something. But I won't talk about my life
by my own.
Anything else? Go ahead, "don't be shyyyy" *Smaug's voice*
