FAQ [Frequently Asked Questions]
1. What materials do you mainly use for your drawings?
In general, I use Copic Ciao markers and Touch Twin Markers, Quill Multiboard A4 white paper, 2B and HB Pentel and Faber-Castell 0.5 mechanical pencil and Faber-Castell PVC-Free Space Eraser (Cool name) and I use Uni-ball Signo white fineliner

2. Did you go to any art school or academy?
No. I took Studio Arts in senior high school. It’s not from that class that I learned evreything I know. I did learn new things from the class, but not to do with fashion illustration or manga drawings. I went to a regular high school, so it doesn’t specialize in art.

3. How do you draw the models? Do you use any templates?
I started out by tracing models from magazines which is harder than it sounds, but once you get the hang of it, it’s pretty easy. Then of course, I searched all types of videos on YouTube and some sites as well on Google, which unfortunately, I don’t remember. How I learned to draw my models is using the 9-Head technique.

4. How old are you?
I am now 19 years old

5. How long have you been drawing?
I’m pretty sure I started drawing at 6. That’s probably my oldest memory of me drawing. I got into manga drawings when I was 11 years old, I started teaching myself how to draw manga when I was 13 years old. I started developing an interest in fashion design also when I was 11, but I pursued that interest or taken it further at the age of 14. So, I would say I started drawing fashion illustration at the age of 14.

6. Where do you get your inspiration?
I get my inspiration from music, photos on Instagram, Tumblr fashion trends, things that I love. There are times where I am just in an Artist’s Block and I feel really brain dead where I can’t draw. Or I force myself to draw and it never turns out to be something that I like.

7. Do you have any links or books you can recommend?
Definitely! Fashion Illustration by Anna Kiper and Fashion Poses for Fashion Illustrators by Sha Tahmasebi are two books that I own at the moment. I’m hoping to get more. These two books are very helpful if you’re a beginner or even if you want to be a bit more advanced.

  1. This brush is awesome, much more practical than a regular brush.
    When I was in college I think at least half the people in my class used this brush, and for good reason.

  2. thanks for giving the pros and cons/ tips for this, i just ordered a set and can not wait till it comes 🙂

  3. Are you sure it's called the "mont marte watercolour palette" ?
    I searched everywhere and couldn't find anything like it 🙁

  4. Mine just arrived but I think they are broken? When I press onto the plastic part to allow water to flow, it flows through the tip but also on the sides i.e. on the top of the black part. So it leaks as I press the brush.. But when I saw you cleaning your brush, the water also came down to the black part..so now I'm not sure if it's actually broken or not. o.O

  5. Is it really easy to blend colours together as I have tried using a ordinary brush using water from a cup separately, the usual way but it's extremely hard, is using a watercolour brush a lot easier to do than the traditional way?

  6. Also what would you recommend using in terms of ease of use, watercolour paint palette or watercolour pencils, what would you say is the easiest?

  7. Okay. For all those of you who have a problem with the aquash pen leaking: here's some information you should read. 1. If you're talking about water leaking from the black part, it's not a defect of the pen. That's what it's supposed to do. 2. If you notice water leaking from the plastic part(the part where the water refill capsule meets the other part) then here's your solution. I had this problem too and I ended up dismantling the whole thing, then finally understanding how to solve it. You should see two black parts in your pen. The upper black part facing the water capsule can be taken out. use something blunt but long and thin (eg. a bobby pin) and push against the centre of the black part. You should notice the black part tilting to one side. Then you push more and take out the whole part. Then put it in again but don't push at all. Just leave it at the surface of the opening. Take your water capsule, screw it in slowly, and let it push the black part back all the way in. Now try pressing your brush. It shouldn't leak anymore. Hope this helped! If you don't get my description comment below and I'll try my best to help out. Soaking it in warm water and stuff won't really help (at least in my experience).

  8. I bought this brush about from an art fair a few days ago and I hadn't got knowledge about how to actually use it, thanks for this reviev video!

  9. Screams I've been looking to find water brushes in Melbourne since I heard about them. Glad to know I can find them a lot easier now.

  10. Thank you so much for the video! I got a 3 pack of this brush for Christmas because I wanted to try out watercolors and this helped me understand how it works.
