Community Spotlight: BroadBean
Give us a quick introduction
I'm Becca Broad, 20 year old Illustration student from Edinburgh, Scotland.
How did you find Rooster Teeth?
I honestly can't remember how it happened but I would say I started properly getting into their stuff towards the end of 2012. I'm going to take a guess that Rage Quit was one of the first things I watched, I then became obsessed with the podcast...and well...the rest is history.
What inspired you to get into art?
It's always been my thing. It's a totally cliché answer but I’ve loved art for as long as I can remember, there wasn't really a moment where I thought I'd do anything else when I grew up.
What advice would you give to other artists?
Step out of your comfort zone! I was stuck in a set style for a lot of my early teens and I didn't improve for ages...as soon as I started experimenting a bit more, whoooosh, I got better and better.
What is your favourite piece of art that you've done?
I really liked the RT drawing I did for New Year...although I found out how horrendously hard drawing the RT logo is. Those teeth put me in a world of pain.
What is your favourite part of the community?
Just how lovely and friendly everyone is! I never felt out of place or like I was outcast for being a newer fan. I especially felt this way at the recent RvB Scotland event, I'm quite a shy person but everyone who spoke to me really made me feel welcome. Just really good folk.
What do you see yourself doing this time next year?
Well, I'll almost be finished my college course...so after that, travelling I hope, in between trying to make a name for myself as a freelance artist...tough times lie ahead...but it's exciting!
Where can we find you and your work?
Right here on the site! It's absolutely the best way to contact me and see all my RT related things. You can also get me on twitter, @broadbeanz ...just my username with a sweet cool guy Z at the end. Totally not lame at all.
