Hello there! And welcome to my profile! I am a student artist in digital media. I am currently in my fifth year of art, and this is my second year in digital art class. I play trumpet at my school, but I can also play trombone and piano. While the class I take digital media as a class, I use all kinds of tools, from pencil to face paint! I am currently developing characters for an animation in the spring, but I have some fan-art as well. Someday I hope to be a story artist at Pixar Animation.

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

    1. I've been on dA for 3 and a half years now.
  2. What does your username mean?

    1. I made it because my old band director called kids "baby bandlings" when they first joined band. I love being in band, so it seemed a natural choice.
  3. Describe yourself in three words.

    1. Funny
    2. Kind
    3. Creative
  4. Are you left or right handed?

    1. Right-handed
  5. What was your first deviation?

    1. The first was just a little sketch I did on the side of my paper in my art class.
      It's super embarrassing right now, but here it is.
    2. Chibi Toothless by Bandling45
  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

    1. I love doing both digital art and pen-and-marker drawings. (Copics are what I typically use)
  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

    1. If I could instantly master a style (and keep my old one), I would like to make my art more realistic.
  8. What was your first favourite?

    1. This sweet thing was.
    2. Be Careful by antontang
  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

    1. I love just about everything, but I usually tend towards digital art.
  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

    1. I like so many, but my favorites are
      1. flutepiccy 
      2. ItachiTheDekuScrub 
      3. NightLiight
      4. Mistrel-Fox
      5. mexopolis 
  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

    1.  I wish I could meet my watchers in real life. That would be awesome.
  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

    1. It's awesome to get followers, because I feel like I've entertained or helped someone.
    2. ohkaylasun and Jenny-Jen were my first watchers. They're such great artists, and it inspired me to try to get better.
  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

    1. I like to use a bamboo tablet and photoshop; I also like copic markers and pens, as well as just plain old mechanical pencil ;).
  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

    1. I can create anywhere, but I work best lying on my floor with music playing.
  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

    1. My first watcher was a professional artist. It was such a compliment that someone who actually did art for a living would want to look at me, who was then just a little freshman in an Art 1 class.


Human 1 Sketch by Bandling45
Human 1 Sketch
Testing out a new drawing program called "FreshPaint". It comes on the Windows 8.1 OS and I gotta say... I am by no means impressed. Despite the egregious lack of shortcuts and the ability to use pen pressure, it has just a certain feel to it. It's totally unlike PaintToolSAI and any version of Photoshop in that it just tries too hard to seem like you're actually using the medium. You have to "wash" your brush every time you want to change a colour; the colors blend automatically, and there ARE. NO. LAYERS. :iconzoominplz: It is quite aggravating, I must say. 

So, first college doodle. I sat down to draw something productive, and out popped a 1. :shrug:

Birthday Glomp emoticon Just in case you didn't know, you're my favorite twin!!!!Dancing dummy 

Happy birthday to my screaming penguin, the person I torture with my love of bike-riding, my fellow band nerd, and the person who makes it impossible for me to watch Fred's death.
And, of course, my inside-joke person.Jack Sparrow LA emote 

Now enjoy your jar of dirt.
