Hey~! I'm curious; what made you choose etsy as a storefront vs storenvy? I was interested in selling on there but the extra fees threw me off completely. Are they worth it?

Hello!

I think the only reason why I use Etsy is that it was the only online storefront I knew at the time, haha! I didn’t realize that Storenvy didn’t have fees (?). That is awesome!

I do like Etsy but I may switch over to Storenvy if everyone feels it is better! :)

15, 18, 30!

15. How long does an average piece take you to complete?

Once my sketch is done, it usually takes me 20-30 minute to digitally paint a piece! I used to be so much faster than this last year but I’ve been so busy that I’ve slowed down a bit.. this proves that it is important to paint every day! :)

18. What are you currently trying to improve on?

Composition, character design, life drawing, people, visual development.. pretty much EVERYTHING! Eeek!

30. What inspires you to not just make art, but to be a better artist?

I really want to share Radio’s story since it really reflects what I’ve been through growing up. If I don’t become a better artist, I can never share it with you all. Radio, this little imaginary Mexican boy, is my main motivator to improve! I also want to please God with my drawings!

Artist Asks!
