Frequently asked questions
How long have you been drawing?
I've been drawing for as long as I can remember. But it wasn't very consistent and until 2012 I haven't taken it very seriously even though I was already studying Illustration & Comic at Kassel University of Arts in Germany at the time.
You can see my old drawings here on Instagram or Twitter.
Where did you learn to draw?
In two last years of high school, I also attended designer courses at the private art school in Tallinn, Estonia. There we also did figure drawing, learned mechanical drawing, done plein air paintings, had HTML-, 3D- and graphic design classes.
In 2012 when I decided to pursue the career of an artist I started to learn all the basics by myself with help from YouTube, artist friends, and also using all the additional information I could find. Although I had some art schooling in my teenage years most of it faded away with time because I haven't drawn a lot and wasn't trying to get better.
Nowadays I continue to watch tutorials on YouTube and consume new information that can help me to grow even more as an artist.
I also try to invest in art courses one or few times a year so I don't get stuck in my comfort zone and boost my art skills further.
What do you use for drawing?
Prismacolor Col-Erase Scarlet Red and Black (for sketches)
Red 2mm mines from Staedtler + any mechanical pencil (for sketches)
Copic markers (for coloring)
