Chitty Chitty Triptych by BetterthanBunnies
Chitty Chitty Triptych
I just adore that part in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang when Truly is turning around on the music box.  So I drew this :)  I liked it so much, I redid the first one and turned her blonde, for my new profile pic!  (Yes it's true, I am a blonde!  I regret nothing!)

I also watched an entire season of Gilligans Island while drawing it, so now whenever I look at it, I think of Gilligan bungling it up for everyone on the island.  Hahaha.

And front!  I'm both here!  lolol.

Hey guys.  I'm so so soooo sorry I've been MIA for over a year and half!  I think getting a job at Disney interactive ate me up!  However, I have the best intentions to keep up on this site.  In fact, I got a premium account here for a year!  So now I HAVE to keep up on it.  (Because I hate wasting money! lol)

Here's what's happened to me these past few months:

-I got on full-time at Disney Interactive, where I've been working as a story artist on Infinity 1 and Infinity 2 (which just came out last week!)
-I got engaged to be married!
-A month before the wedding, he broke up with me!
-I got thrown into jail for setting my ex-fiance's house on fire!

Hahaha.  Totally joking about the last one (though I wouldn't blame myself if I did.  Hee hee.)  Needless to say, it's been a crazy few months!  But I'm back at the grindstone and hoping to keep up better with DA and my other art sites.

This leads me to wonder:
Do you guys feel like DA is dying?
What art sites do you think a lot of people are heading to?

I have a poll down below...I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Where's your favorite art hangout?

My goodness, your style is so refined and lovely! Do tell, what does your art education consist of (besides plenty of practice, of course)? :)

Why thank you!

This is a good question.  I got my animation degree at BYU, where a learned a lot of great things--storyboard tools, photoshop, how to draw, really--and a little bit of Maya.  {VERY little...I've forgotten all of it now!}  A lot of my learning also came on-the-job, with people I worked with.  I had an internship where I animated in AfterEffects, and my office mate taught me how to use it.  And I still use it today!  And, in all the jobs since, my coworkers have been very helpful in giving me tips and advice.

I would say the biggest help of course is just practicing every day--I try to spend 45 min - an hour either speedpainting or drawing from books and pinterest.  Doing fanart is a good help too.  There are so many crazy good artists out there, it's a blast to try and emulate them!  And, drawing artwork for fun and DA or a blog is a great help too!

Lol.  That was probably a longer answer than you wanted!  But that's what's helped me ^_^

Awesome! I love long explanations, lol! :D This was very helpful!
And BYU??? That's great! :) I'm planning on studying digital design there after I come back from my mission! What a coincidence! =P (Razz)
