Payoki Art

About

Hey there! My name is Hera, although I do go by Yoki elsewhere on the Internet. I'm currently a 23 year old fossil who loves to draw from time to time. While art is not something I have any sort of academic background in, I admit I have been drawing for as long as I can remember and very much enjoy digital art as a hobby of mine. Neopets has been one of my biggest creative outlets since 2003, and one of the sole reasons I still stick around today is for the ever encouraging, tight-knit community I can always feel at home in, as well as the array of colourful and vibrant Neopet designs so many talented Neopian artists here have to offer. I apologise for the sudden cheese, but don't ever change, you wonderful NeoBoard folk! ♡

I do want to mention though that I am very sporadically on and off and that I generally don't take art requests or trades, but rather I like to hop onto the Art Chat occasionally (or ArtAgency's page) and gift someone who's looking for some art at random. Sorry and thanks for understanding.


tl;dr Hi I'm Hera, I draw really spontaneously and don't take requests often.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you take requests/trades?
You can try contacting me about it, but I'm most likely not going to take any for now, sorry!

What program do you use to draw?
I draw and colour using PaintTool SAI, and use Photoshop CS5 for editing/finishing touches/GIFs.

What tablet do you use?
I switched to a Wacom Intuos Manga Pen & Touch (Small) in early 2015; everything before then was done by a Wacom Graphire4 4x5 which I used for 8 years straight! 10/10, Wacom.

What tools on SAI do you use to draw?
I generally just use the pencil/brush tool- I keep changing up my settings so it's kind of hard to say. I use the brush tool to blend between colours too!

What is your colouring method?
What I've been doing a lot as of late (in a nutshell) is drawing semi-rough lineart, adding base colours under the lines, then adding shadows and lighting, then I'd create a layer on top of everything adding details and fixing everything up on that layer to give a more clean and refined look. I end up using more than one of these layers but doing everything on less layers really helps to blend everything! Sorry if that was hard to understand, I have some process GIFs uploaded above that might illustrate my point better.

Thanks for visiting!
