1. Who are you and what do you do?
I am Lachelle Allen and I’m an 11 year old artist in the making.

 

 

2. Why art?
At first, I never even thought about being an artist because I use to just do if for fun. But now I use art to express myself.

About 3 or 4 months ago.

 

 

4. What are your favorite subject(s) and media(s)?
My favorite subject is probably concept art and my favorite media is dry media like pencil. markers and things like that.

 

 

5. How do you work and approach your subject?
First I give myself a prompt and try to create thumbnails but if I get stuck, I go to Pinterest for inspiration.

My three favorite artists right now are Rin, Jake Parker and Christina Lorre. Two of them are YouTubers and I actually learn how to draw with their tutorials.

What I like about my work is that every time I draw, there’s always a drastic improvement, even in the smallest things.

 

 

9. What advice would you give to other artists?
Always try to draw at least every other week, and when drawing does not look exactly like the picture, just come back later and try again and always stay true to yourself.

 

 

10. Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?
I would see myself as an artist for a tv show or a manga/anime artist.
