Hello, wanderer!

Hi, wanderer!My name is Marta Stachowiak. I'm a polish digital illustrator living in Chile.My journey as an illustrator began in 2012 with a fascination for the digital art world and possibilities of this medium.

My favorite things to draw include animals and all kinds of critters, often occupying fantastical sceneries brimming with wonders of nature.

My goal is to paint evocative, storytelling artworks that the viewers can feel drawn to. I love when my art is being interpreted freely, resonating with every person in different ways.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website.
Feel free to reach out via e-mail or an Instagram DM
— I'd love to embark on creative adventures together.

With love,
M. ♥


Collaborations


A bit more about me...I'm a bachelor in theatre studies, but painting has always been my hobby, starting from early years of my life, when I used to passionately redraw animals from scenes of Disney and Dreamworks' movies! Around year 2012 I put my hands on my first digital tablet, and we have been inseparable ever since!I love the wilderness, lakes, woods and mountains. I adore horseback trips! So... probably the biggest dream of mine is to one day be a lucky girl with a horse ♥I really hope my art journey will eventually help make those wishes come true!

Tattoo designs


Do you tattoo on people?
I am not a tattoo artist - I'm a digital artist only. The designs you see may perform different when assessed by a professional tattoo artist, and you should always consult them first before paying for a custom work like this.
I really like that drawing you made, can I use it as a tattoo?
Using existing art as tattoo design is possible, however, you need to contact me for permission first. When posting the design on social media, you and/or tattoo artist will just need to credit me as a design creator/inspiration (depending on the level of changes made to the original art).
That option is available only for my personal artworks (I don't give away rights to commissioned art).

What are the permissions needed?
For those tattoo artists who are open for working on designs brought in by the client, my art comes with permission to be used and adjusted by the tattoo artist so they match their style and technique better. They can discuss the changes with you and get them done without worrying about infringing on my copyrights.
I've been told you shouldn't tattoo someone else's design.
Providing that you have the artist's permission for using it, there's nothing inherently bad in bringing your desired design to a tattoo studio. However, tattoo artists are, as name suggests, also artists, who have their own style and prefer to use it while tattooing. Therefore they'd rather design your tattoo from scratch all by themselves, which is completely understandable - after all, that's a permanent art on your skin we're talking about.Please always discuss such ideas with your tattoo artist and learn their preferences first, before ordering custom art from a digital artist!


Socials


When did you start your account?
My Instagram account was started exactly on 28th September 2012
I've been mildly inactive for quite some time though, with my first ever post being made on 18th of November 2016.

Do you have a Patreon?
I do! You can find it here

Do you ever plan to stream?
I actually did stream for some time! Unfortunately, due to lack of time and some other issues I had to put an indefinite pause on it :(

Do you have an online store?
I do have several "stores", however most are based on third-party handling of the productions and orders. You can find my stuff by exploring this page.


Software & Canvas


What do you use to draw?
• I use tablet Wacom Cintiq 13HD, before that Wacom Bamboo Pen (A6 size)• I draw in Paint Tool Sai 2.• I record my speedpaints via OBS.• I edit my speedpaints in phone apps like Meitu & CapCut.

What is your canvas size?
My main choices are:

• Square/Medallion: 7016 x 7016 px (~ 59 x 59 cm / 23" x 23")
• Vertical: A2 (~ 42 x 59 cm / 16" x 23")
• Horizontal: 7500 x 4200 px (~ 63 x 35 cm / 25" x 14")

Why your horizontal canvas has a different ratio than the vertical one?
It allows for more "cinematic" vibe of the artwork! Other than that, it's just more comfortable for me to work on. For maintaining better composition of horizontal canvas, main model is usually presented slightly to the side as opposed to being in the dead center like in vertical ones.


Personal


Who are your biggest inspirations?
It changes over time, but my first grand inspiration was a Deviantart user named GaudiBuendia. For lineart and cuteness - Mythie-Paws (bless her soul [*]). For humans and overall style - Felidre. Current main inspirations are clockbirds and giulialibard ♥

What inspired your love of drawing foxes? What do you like most about foxes?
Honestly, I have no idea what started it, but around 2013-2014 I I've gradually became more and more obsessed with foxes, seemingly out of nowhere. I've started to seek more gadgets and items with foxes depicted, and I just loved drawing them more than any other animal. I guess they just came into my life and never left ♥
What I love about them? Their personalities, fluffy coats, and that they're the perfect mixture of cat and dog features. Classic red fox color is just so fun to draw and mess with!

Q&A


art


When did you start digital art?
I've started it in December 2012! I got my first tablet, Wacom Bamboo Pen, for Christmas!

Do you take art requests or trades?
Very rarely, even though I'd love to sometimes. Whenever I do, I announce it on my instagram.

Any advice for aspiring artists?
There are some!

  • Don't get discouraged! I know there's a lot of things that may make you feel like you're not good enough, or that you'll "never" reach a certain level. Those are normal, but unsubstantiated fears that everyone has sometimes! If you need some encouragement, talk to your friends (or art friends!) and chat about your feelings. Or, if you need a break from social media, take it! Your mental health is important.

  • Use references! Photo or real-life references are amazing tool in practicing a skill. Don't think you need to draw everything from your head! Even pro illustrators at big studios use references. There's no shame in using them.

  • Artblocks happen. When you feel like you start to feel burned out, don't feel bad about yourself! Pushing through by force may only result in worse case of burnout! It's your body telling you to take a break. Just like after a nice excercise week your muscles will be sore and tired, the same way after an intensive art period your brain will need a bit of rest. It's completely normal and it's easier to handle when you don't beat yourself over it. Just take a break, do your other favourite thing, have some days off, and your inspiration will come back naturally.

  • The style™ is a mixture of your lifetime insiprations, practices, learned techniques and other small art-related things. It happens naturally, you may actively seek it out, but it is already hidden somewhere in your approach to art like a rough diamond that needs polishing. So don't fret if you "don't have a style" - you do, but it may start showing up more crisp and vivid in the future (maybe others already see it!). If you want, you may look up old artworks of the pro artists you inspire with. Check out their first published works ever and see how the style they have now was almost nowhere to be seen at the start.

  • Try out new things! DTIYS or monthly challenges and other fun art things are great way to practice and try out new styles and ideas.


Did you begin learning to make art digitally or traditionally?
I was making lots of drawing traditionally, mostly for fun and as a hobby.I particularily loved to destroy my VHS animated movies collection by stopping it in various stills and trying to redraw them on piece of paper.It all has changed when I attended an architecture drawing course to give myself a bigger chance of passing the initial exams to architecture studies. (I passed, but eventually failed during 2nd semester). My art coach on that course had a Wacom tablet and has been flexing his art on us poor noob souls, so it made me want to have one myself. I got one the same year for Christmas and my life has never been the same ever since ;)
How do you know when to do hard vs soft edges in an illustration?
Believe it or not, that's a tough question! I usually don't know when to do them, I choose to do it during the process based on if I feel like it. I used to be really miserable with lineart as a beginner, so I stuck to lineless art for a long time. Only recently I've found out I'm getting slightly better at lines, probably due to getting more practice with general shapes and anatomy, as well as trying out more various styles thanks to popularity of DTIYS challenges!
Where do you find your inspiration for scenic photos? Do you travel into nature, do research on locations?
I do love to travel into nature a lot! When I was a child/teenager I've had an opportunity to spend lots of free days and holidays in the countryside.I used to be a passionate young "photographer", so I was quite attentive towards views and landscapes. However, the best source of art inspirations to this day is just... Google Images ;) Sometimes we simply can't be in the place we wish to draw, so that is a great way to bypass those limitations.When drawing, I gather tons of photos I think may help me convey the general feel. Because incredibly specific scenes are usually hard to find, I've learned to just gather +10 photo references on the side and use them for general inspiration!
Will you make a tutorial on ___ ?
I always hope to find a way to make a tutorial on a thing or two, and I do have some that are basically started, but there's always something that stands in the way of finishing. I plan to release at least some, eventually!
