What tools do you use ?

I use a Wacom Cintiq 13HD with Photoshop CS6.

I used two other tablets in the past, both were Wacom Bamboo which are totally fine to start with.

''I can't become a GOOD ARTIST. how do you do that''

This is a false statement. I don't consider myself ''Good'' but I don't consider myself Bad either. Drawing is 5% of talent and 95% of hardwork. So if you want to get better, go ahead and DRAW ! You won't get better in one day. If you want, go ahead and check my improvement meme which can give you an idea :)

How long have you been drawing ?

I started like everyone else. Doing the little house and my family... but I stopped to draw for some time. I rediscovered it when I was 12 years old and never stopped afterwards.

Are you self-taught ?

I am self-taught for numerical but not for traditionnal. My parents were really supportive with me so once they saw I had an interest into art, they paid some private classes. I did 3 years in pottery, 1 year into painting and 2 years into drawing. I went in a Visual Art program on college and now I study for video games at university. So no, I'm not self-taught.

Can you help me with this ?

If you need help, don't be scared to come and talk with me :) I can maybe give you an idea about what you need to change on a drawing or what you need to improve. I can also give you critiques if you wants to. Just come and ask for it.

Please draw this for me

I don't take free request anymore. I used to do it, but after a while I was getting too many requests. This is why I started to do commissions. So if you want me to draw something for you, you can ask for a commission. All the prices and explaination is in the commission section of this journal.

Marie-Claude Gagnon
Artist | Student | Digital Art
I'm currently studying in at university in 3D creation and design for Video Games and my dream is to become a 3D modeller/Level artist. I mostly draw on photoshop using a Wacom Cintiq 13HD. I love to paint animals, pokemon and characters but I am also working on environment and do a lot of experimentation.

I'm 22 years old and I live in Montréal, Québec, Canada. My main language is French so please keep that in mind if you message me, I might not understand perfectly so please try to stay simple if you do so.

I hope you will like my deviantArt page and I hope to see you around.
