About the Artist

Fussypants AvatarHello, my name is Fussypants and on top of being a writer and a gamer, I am an artist.   I love combining my favorite game with my art, so a lot of what I create is Warcraft related.  Currently, I offer commissioned Blizzard related art for Blizzcon badges but keep your eyes open as I might open up other types of commissions later!

I am an entirely self taught artist.  The last time I received formal instruction on drawing I think was back in elementary school so all that I do and make is entirely from me teaching myself.  I know it’s cliche to say, but practice has been my best friend and drawing almost every day is how I have gotten where I am at!

I work exclusively in traditional medias.  I do most of my work in pencil, watercolor, gouache, and inks.  However, I have dabbled in pastels, acrylics, and some Line Art Draenei3D creations such as pottery, papier mâché, and paper quilling.  I also am a rather avid jeweler but I do not currently sell any of that work.

Working in traditional media means I have less room for editing my work but it also means I can draw almost anywhere!  I doodle almost every day and bring a sketchpad everywhere I go.  But this also means that once I’ve inked or painted a line, it becomes semi-permanent.  There’s no ‘undo’ button in real life and I’ve been learning to make the best of this.

I have been interesting in art since a very young age.  However, it wasn’t until very recently that I started seriously pursuing it.  Almost two years now I decided to try my hand at watercolor and it has since become my favorite medium.  And I have to say, I’ve gotten a lot better at it over these two years!

On top of watercolor, I have also completed quite a few rather unique pieces of Warcraft related art.  For three years running I have made Warcraft decorated Easter Eggs, a paper quilled horde sigil for my dad, and an utterly enormous papier mâché dragonhawk (I talk about the process of making it here).

Currently, I post the majority of my artwork on my Twitter @TheFussypants.  I also have a Deviant Art account that I need to get better at updating under the username TheFussypants as well.  And I have more artwork under the Badge Info and Examples page of this blog!
