Yus! I loves me steampunk! And manga was what made me start drawing seriously
Watercolour is my favourite medium because it is so chaotic. Trying to get over my fear of opaque mediums at the moment. *shudder*

Do you always work in traditional media, or have you got into digital media such as Corel Paint?
Yes! I've had people go 'woaaah, it's gonna fall ooveerrr' when seeing the caravan.
I usually work very quick. But the paintings need to be left alone for long periods of time since each layer needs to dry. So a character painting can be finished in a day if I do nothing else.
The caravan probably took me about a week because I didn't touch it for hours and hours in between layers.
I actually started working in digital art waaaay back when I was a youngling. Used photoshop and a tablet. When I went over to seriously try some traditional techniques, the digital just went out the door. Mainly because of the tactile and 'hands on' way you work with traditional. I smudge with my fingers a lot, and stuff like that.
