Andrew Tibbets
Artist | Student | Digital Art
United States
Welcome to my DeviantART account! The name’s Andrew, and it is a pleasure to have you here!

I am currently a high school student who hopes to get into engineering and graphic design. In my spare time—after homework and chores are dealt with for the day—I like to draw ponies and traditional drawings, vector, listen to music, watch movies with my family, converse with my friends, watch TV shows on my computer, and sleep. Other forms of art and graphic design I enjoy creating are pixel art, creating screensavers in Quartz Composer, create Mac icons, and desktop backgrounds. I am into photography, too! I love to experiment with my mom’s camera on manual; she’s been teaching me how to effectively shoot in manual.

When it comes to TV, some of my favorite shows are My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Mythbusters, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Doctor Who, and American Pickers.

I am, by no means, a great artist. I just do my best at what I do and I strive to get better at what it is I do. Thank you for stopping by my account, again, I really appreciate it!

The Tools of the Trade:

Hardware:
iMac Milky Way Avatar Icon by SgtMjrTibbets 27" iMac 2011
This is my main computer (We also have a Power Mac G4 and Power Mac G5—fancy business). It is the only computer in our house that has the ability to run Adobe Creative Cloud® Apps.

Nikon D3 dSLR camera
This is the most amazing digital camera I've ever set eyes on—and in. My mother bought this camera years ago and continues to use it for taking pictures of her Etsy listings. She now allows me to use it, and I will do so from time to time to practice my photography.

Hewlett Packard F2200 Deskjet all-in-one
Although this device doubles as a printer, I only use this as a scanner to upload my traditional artwork and pony rough drafts to my iMac.

Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet.
I use this tablet to draw and write directly on my computer. This tablet was originally given to me in a damaged state by my amazing friend ~Apoca7ypse. After tearing it open and assessing the damage, I was able to fully repair the tablet, and now it performs beautifully.


Main Software:
Adobe Photoshop CC by SgtMjrTibbets Adobe Photoshop CC
I primarily use Photoshop, of course, for its intended purpose: I use it to photographs I take and to color balance scans that I upload. I also use Photoshop to create computer icons.

Adobe Illustrator CC by SgtMjrTibbets Adobe Illustrator CC
This is the application that I use to vector the ponies that I commission. I'm currently taking a Graphic Communications class that has been showing me all of the bells and whistles to the app, so expect improvement on my work!

iConvert by SgtMjrTibbets iConvert Icons:Mac
This is the application that I use to convert .png and .psd files to .icns (mac icon) and .ico (windows icon) files. You can find this app on the Mac App Store. It's a simple yet powerful app that is definitely worth it's price.


Leads/pens:
On top of digital artwork and vectors, I also do a lot of traditional art (and actually prefer it). In this list, I will describe some of the mechanical pencil leads and pens that I use for my artwork.

Pentel Ain STEIN 0.5mm 2H and 4H hardness leads
When it comes to sketching and drawing ponies, I love to use hard leads—they draw lightly making them super easy to erase cleanly and they do not smear. Compared to other hard leads I've tried, these are, by far, the best I've used.

Pilot NEOX ENO Color colored 0.7mm mechanical pencil leads
When it comes to coloring miniscule details, colored mechanical pencil leads are the way to go. I currently only have "Soft Blue" and "Orange" in my drawing arsenal, but I plan on obtaining more colors in the future. These leads hold up a lot better than I expected colored pencil leads to.

Sharpie PEN STYLO felt tipped fine-point pens
Given to me on Christmas, I am already in love with these pens. They do not bleed, and they make a bold statement in whatever it's is I'm drawing. I currently have eight total: Five black, one red, one blue, and one green.

  • Listening to: Spoon — Dave Matthews Band
Spoon in spoon 
Stirring my coffee 
I thought of you 
And turned to the gate 
On my way came up with the answers 
I scratched my head 
And the answers were gone 
From hand to hand 
Wrist to the elbow 
Red blood sand 
Could Dad be God 
Crosses cross hung out like a wet rag 
Forgive you why 
You hung me out to dry 
Maybe I'm crazy 
But laughing out loud 
Makes the pain pass by 
And maybe you're a little crazy 
But laughing out loud makes it all subside 
Holding I'm holding 
I'm still falling 
Spoon in spoon 
Stirring my coffee 
I thought of this 
And turned to the gate 
But on my way 
Crack 
Lightning and thunder 
I hid my head 
And the storm slipped away 
Well maybe I'm crazy 
And laughing out loud 
Makes it all pass by 
And maybe you're a little crazy 
And laughing out loud 
Makes it all alright 
Laughing out loud 
From time to time 
Minutes and hours 
Some move ahead while 
Some lag behind 
It's like the balloon that 
Rise and then vanish 
This drop of hope 
That falls from his eyes 
Spoon in spoon 
Stirring my coffee 
I think of this 
And turn to go away 
But as I walk 
There're voices behind me saying 
Sinners sin 
Come now and play
