Hahaha that Pokemon comment. I think I love you. Oh and as for your art style, I'd describe it as happy. It makes me feel warm inside. I just love it. I love you.

Bwzeeep! Since I’m actually a robot, I am unable to return your sentiments. My cold, metallic heart will do its best to show you utmost gratitude!

In all seriousness, that my art comes off as happy is surprising. I am so tired and morose. You could say, it’s too melodramatic! What a phenomenon!

uh, sorry if this isn't quite clear cause i'm not too good with words but.. overall your art style feels really light-hearted not in the sense that you don't put in effort but like in the sense that it's soft and reminds me almost of illustrations in children's books. the colors you choose are bright and cheerful and bring a lot of life to what you draw!! even with the simpler sketches you make it seems very fun and like you enjoy what you do. i hope this all makes sense...

Wow! Thank you!

See, it makes sense cause I’m actually ten years old. I haven’t gone on my Pokemon journey yet, so there’s no way I can be older than ten. They wouldn’t skip over a cool guy like me, right!?

Basil and Sage would probably have gotten along if Sage hadn’t left his little brother to pursue a vague ambition. “Anywhere but here,” he thought, and in a fit of teen rebellion he up and left in search of apprenticeship in anything but horticulture. Anything. He took to the city, adopting a posh exterior, and when he came back unexpectedly, Basil simply couldn’t decide whether to be happy, mad, or altogether disillusioned. 

I drew my characters wearing clothes I would like to wear. The first two are brothers, but…

I got a question about some of the materials I use.
The colored pens are Stabillo point 88s, which I got off of Amazon but can also be found in hobby stores. They’re water soluble.
When it comes to inking, I carry Staedtlers around, but I find that Copic Multiliners are (perhaps negligibly) smother. I used to use Microns, which are great but dry out pretty fast.
I use two types of brush pen. Disposable Zebras, which can only be ordered here as far as I know, and the refillable Pentel Pocket Brush. 
Those potable watercolors are from the student store at CalArts, but Koi is nice too.
I’ll also use whatever miscellaneous things I have on hand, including Crayola markers, highlighters, gel pens, and regular ballpoint pens.
As far as sketchbooks go, Moleskine is very nice, but lately I haven’t had the confidence to use mine. It doesn’t matter what you draw on if you just need to practice, and often it’s easier to use a cheaper sketchbook. Using a lot of different paper qualities can produce different effects, too.
