Misc / その他


Q: What does my name mean?
A: My name, 1つのねこ (hitotsunoneko) in Japanese roughly means "one cat". Pronounced hee-toe-suu no neh-ko. Hitotsu (1つ) means one/first, neko (ねこ) means cat.
Adding a number in front of tsu (つ) is a form of counting/numerical order. Kanji is usually used to write the same thing. Like this: 一つ (hitotsu).
My name can also be written in hiragana (ひとつのねこ) or both kanji and hiragana (一つの猫). I chose to go with 1つのねこ because its short and convenient. Also more unique, which can make it easier to register on sites and games. Another reason is sometimes you can't use kanji, but you can use numbers and hiragana.

Q: How Long have I been drawing?
A: I've been drawing pretty much my whole life. I started drawing digitally with Photoshop around when I was a teenager. Been using different PC software to create my artwork ever since then.

Q: What software do you use?
A: I have listed the different software I've used here. I currently use Clip Studio Paint PRO to sketch/draw. If needed, I use Photoshop CS5 to add filters/effects.

Q: What tablet do you use?
A: I've been using Wacom tablets almost the entire time I've been drawing on a computer. I have listed all the tablets I've used here. I currently use the Wacom Cintiq 27 qhd. It has made things alot better. Makes drawing feel more natural as I like to describe it. Totally worth it if you can buy one.

Q: What are your PC specs?
A: My current PC specs can been seen here.

Q: Am I Japanese?
A: No. I'm Korean. And no, I can't read or speak Korean.

Q: Can you read Japanese?
A: I mostly self taught myself Japanese. I can only understand simple stuff. Hiragana, katakana, and some kanji.

Q: How long does it take you draw?
A: While I have a usual method, I sometimes do/play with different styles, in which the progress time differs. Normally I work on and off, in which sometimes can take me a long time to finish. Even sometimes years. How long to draw a picture really just depends. Like how complex, how big the picture is, me just being lazy, or I'm busy (playing a game instead of drawing;;;). Drawing samples below.

Sample 1: Full Colored Line Drawing

1. Sketching

Where the progress starts. Can take

me awhile if I'm having trouble deciding

on poses, or it's the first time drawing

the character, or there's multiple


Roughly can take days or weeks.

2. Line Work

Polishing a messy sketch to define the

drawing with clean solid dark lines. One

of the longest steps for me. Especially

if there's multiple characters.

Roughly can take days or months.

3. Flat Colors

The coloring progress starts. Adding the

basic colors. Probably one of the easiest


Roughly can take hours or days.

4. Shading and Such

Adding more depth to the coloring with

shading, highlights, and other details.

Also includes the background if I decide

to add one. Of course the more detailed

the background is, the longer it takes.

Maybe the next longest step.

Roughly can take days or weeks.
