About the Artist ... Eric Proctor AKA TsaoShinΒ 

When did you start drawing? How did you learn to draw?
I've been doodling since I was a kid but I didn't get serious about drawing until I was in college. I majored in Studio Art as a traditional painter but quickly jumped into digital painting platforms shortly after graduation. I try to carry over my traditional painting background into how I compose my digital paintings. This is why you'll see a lot of exposed brush strokes in my work.

Are you a professional artist? Where do you work?
I'm a conceptual illustrator for a research laboratory. The nature of our work is sensitive so I can't speak publicly about it. The drawings you see in my gallery are the illustrations that I do at home and for fun.

How long does it take you to make a drawing?
How long I spend on a drawing really depends on the complexity. For my larger more complicated drawings, it takes anywhere between 6-20 hours. Smaller and more sketchy drawings take around 1-4 hours. I also tend to rotate several works at once so I'm keeping fresh eyes on each of them. I find that if I'm focusing too long on a single piece, I begin to fatigue on it. When I cycle work, it keeps my interest up and I see my mistakes better if I come back to a drawing after I give it some time.

Q: Do you record or stream your art?
A: I'm actually a twitch partner and I run an art show on YouTube called Backseat Drawing!

Q: What programs/tools do you use?
A: Adobe Photoshop CC and a Wacom Cintiq Pro 24.

Q: Can I buy prints, shirts, etc of your artwork?
A: Yes! You can either catch me at a few of the east coast conventions where I sell my work or head over to my online stores:
