The Art of Beth Hughes



I'm a 21 year old artist who loves telling stories and using art to get those stories out. I was lucky enough to complete two years at RCAD in their Computer Animation program. After realizing my passions lie more in preproduction, I left and will now be attending Sheridan College for their Visual and Creative Arts program. For freelancing or job opportunities, please contact me via email.

More of these painting practices.  These were done a lot faster than the last one.

I gotta practice painting more.

Done completely with Kyle’s Ultimate Pastel Palooza

I was wondering, what program(s) do you use to paint digitally? Do use a tablet or a scanner? I am just very curious because I want to enhance my skills and become more familiar with using colors. I have experience and price does not matter. If you could recommend options for me, that would be fantastic! Thank you!

Hi!  I use Photoshop CC 2014 to do all my digital work.  It depends on the piece, but I usually do my sketches digitally, but I do have a scanner when I do sketch traditionally.  For my tablet, I use a Cintiq 13HD.  :D  The Cintiq is definitely worth the investment, if you plan on getting one!

Practicing with some faces from Pinterest.

In her second book, Candy Grant spins a tale of love and laughter where two bees find their soul mate and live happily ever after. Candy’s brilliant rhyme with amazing illustrations by newcomer, Beth Hughes, make this a story for all ages! Launching August 25, 2014!

Exciting news!  ”Will You Bee My Honey?” is now available for pre-order for $12.99, regularly $15.99!  When you order before September 1st, you save $3, so get your orders in quick!  I hope you all enjoy the book as much as I did illustrating it!

Okie dokie! :D

11. How many art related blogs do you follow?

HA oh no

I can safely say that at least 900 of those are art blogs….I have a problem.

18. What are you currently trying to improve on?

Right now I’m really working on trying to stay focused on a set project. Like working regular 9-5 hours on one set project and not doing personal art until after that time.  I have a tendency to be very scatterbrained and all over the place when it comes to the art I want to do, so it’s something I know I really have to improve on.

20.What is the easiest thing for you to draw?

Ooohhh umm haha I can’t really think of anything that’s really easy for me to draw; I feel like I struggle with a lot haha.  But okay, probably expressions because they’re my favorite, so even if I have to redraw it over and over, it doesn’t feel like a chore haha

8. Do you draw professionally, or just for fun?

Well, I’m still a student, but I have and am working on professional projects, so a little half and half.  I’m not currently earning a living wage from my art, but it’s my goal to do so one day.

25. Do you like to draw in silence, or with music?

It depends, really.  I don’t mind either way; mostly depends if I remember to take the time to turn on music before I get really invested in drawing.
