hey guys, sorry for the radio silence; I’ll reply to messages as soon as i get the time. I just moved to Vancouver last week and it’s kind of been a mess - the kind where the place i put a deposit down for turned out to be uninhabitable (there was a gas leak, and the hot water boiler and the main heater was practically in the living room, not to mention the rooms themselves are no taller than 5’4”; there’s a serious carbon monoxide possibility so….yeah. and the landlord refuses to return my deposit so that’s also pretty horrible), and someone i was supposed to room with went to live with someone else so i was left to find a place myself. still sorting shit out but at least i’ve got a place to stay now so that’s a plus, even if it’s a little expensive, it’s mine for now. so yeah, just a little update or something, i dunno. xD;;. I had to leave behind my cintiq and currently don’t have enough money to get a smaller one, so I’ll probably be doing more traditional stuff once i settle down xD;;.
I swear to god every time I see a discussion about female protagonists, there’s always one insecure male who’s like “i’m just so uncomfortable playing female”. Oh my GOD, i wonder how females EVER played all those games with male protagonists. I mean obviously every time I play a game with a male protagonist i feel like I grow a dick. Obviously.
God forbid anything ever remotely or even indirectly challenges your masculinity. (Hugs between guys. OH. NO.)
SCORE~!! Got these at $3 when they were originally priced at $30+ so, in a fit of “holy-shit” I kind of cleaned the store out…
The store (Curry’s) wasn’t even advertising the sale! I had to ask for the price cause I was just randomly browsing (art-supply window-shopping is super fun :D :D).
Blocked watercolour paper are these ones that you don’t need to stretch and they’ll stay relatively smooth as you paint it with a lot of water. You need to cut each sheet out when you finish them (which is why the edges are black here). The only downside to them is that you can’t really trace-over your sketches, so if you’re the kind of person who erases a lot…well, erasing kind of ruins watercolour paper a little bit…. anyways, sorry, just excited hahaha. never bought anything art-related so cheap before +__+
Hi guyyys, I want to change my tumblr theme but i keep looking around theme-hunger to no avail cause I’m picky as shit but I was just wondering if anyone know a good minimalist theme that’s like this theme: http://zerotheme.tumblr.com/ but with bigger (preferably 500px or 400px sizes) pictures and the same amount of link number, hover description, and scroll back to top thing? dunno if that made sense omg, but thanks in advance~! advance cause i’m gonna go to bed now but please help! thanks ;3;
hahaha at first i wanted to draw two things for the FF13 contest cause i had two ideas but I’m so fucking slow and this is so fucking detailed i’ll be lucky to finish one now. My right arm is so sore it hurts like a bad month-cramp ಥ_ಥ…. It’s been a while since i pushed a drawing like this in so much pain omgggggg urghhhh. sorry, just have to complain somewhere and tumblr seems a little better ;__;….and I still haven’t even touched the background on this drawing omg killl meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
edit: lemme show you all the fucks i need to give….
What I want to do if I ever become a millionaire and can just not-work: Draw the Harry Potter books into comic - coloured. Just for me.
pet peeve: when people hold string instruments wrong in artworks and/or stockphotos. Especially stock-photos, because people actually REFERENCE those and then they reference wrong because the stock photos were wrong. D:
Reason for pet peeve is probably cause i’ve been playing the violin since i was 3 y/o and learned that before i learned almost everything else in life and I’ve been in an orchestra for so long watching everyone else play xD;.
would anyone be interested in a tutorial of the proper way to draw a person holding a violin/viola/cello? i dunno if enough people would be interested though, since i want to do a few other tuts too, but it is a little pet peeve of mine hahaha :P.
