I am sometimes asked to do artwork free of cost for comics/games/etc, however I do not work for free.
Sorry, I don’t do requests or trades.
Yes, I’m available for freelance work! Feel free to contact me.
You can purchase prints (as well as ipod/iphone cases) of my artwork at Society6.
Yes! I will try my best to answer any questions you may have.
I use Photoshop CS6 (occasionally Paint Tool SAI) and a Wacom Cinitq tablet.
I get asked this a lot. I always recommend Wacom. Firstly, because they are very good tablets, and secondly because I really have no experience with any other brand. If you’re just starting out, I would suggest getting a Bamboo or a small tablet of the Intuos models. I personally loved my Intuos4 tablet and would recommend it to anyone.
It all depends on the complexity of the painting. Detailed paintings take 6 – 20 hours. For my quicker sketches it’s around 1 – 3 hours.
I don’t have any detailed tutorials because frankly, they take a long time to make. I have, however recorded the process of several pieces for video speed paintings.
Slowly build up the colors with light pen pressure. My base colors are dark and I add highlights and lighter colors little by little. I don’t use big soft edged brushes because the colors will get that yucky, muddy look.
I hardly ever use soft edged brushes. I use hard edged brushes most of the time. The trick is just to use very light pen pressure and build up the the colors slowly.
It’s important to paint at a high resolution. I usually start with a image size that is at least A4 format (300 DPI) or larger.
Yes. I don’t mind if my art is used for your desktop wallpaper, or printed out for yourself. Just don’t sell my art or claim it as your own.
Yes! You don’t have to ask for permission to have my artwork tattooed on yourself. I’d love to see a photo of it.
Yes, of course! I’m always happy to have my art featured on blogs/websites, as long as you link back to angelataratuta.com.
Yes, you may use my art as a reference for personal use. Please link back to the image you referenced with proper credit (angelataratuta.com). I’d love to see the artwork you created!
I’m not interested in licensing my work for use in signature tags or stock images.
I’m completely self taught. I’ve been drawing all my life. I started digital painting in 2007.
I’m a huge cinephile so I watch a lot of movies. I enjoy writing, playing the piano and guitar, reading, running.
