Q:I'm sure you've answered a question like this before, and if there is a link to it, please let me know! I was wondering what your process is from drawing your work to putting it into a program on the computer. What techniques do you use on the program you use?
Hello! I actually work traditionally, not digitally, but still use Photoshop in my process. In short, my usual routine includes: thumbnail, sketch, refine sketch, transfer, ink, and paint. Here are links to how I transfer my lineart, and tea stain.
The only time I use Photoshop is when I’m refining a sketch and/or creating a digital copy of the original illustration. When I refine a sketch, I will scan what I have finished, make a print, and work on it some more. I do this so I can preserve parts of the image I’m already satisfied with.
I hope I was able to answer your question! If I misunderstood anything, feel free to send another message for clarification. ^^
Q:Hi, do you have an etsy? Or somewhere online to purchase your work? Its absolutely beautiful.

Q:hello Miss Sarah! I just wanted to let you know your drawing style is beautiful, and I have taken it upon myself to use you as my inspiration to draw my own pieces like yours! its a bit of a struggle since I haven't drawn in years, but I enjoy your traditional grasp, and I've wished to do the same. Thank you again!
Hello! Thank you so much ~ I wish you the best in reconnecting with drawing traditionally. You’re welcome to send any questions my way as I’ll try to answer them to the best of my ability. :) Good luck!
Delivery! Came home from work to find my order of canvas prints and new 11x14” poster prints have arrived. Super happy with their quality. I hope people will like them at Otakon!
