TO ALL THE GIRLS who are in a hurry to have a boyfriend or get married, a piece of Biblical advice: “Ruth patiently waited for her mate Boaz.” While you are waiting on YOUR Boaz, don’t settle for any of his relatives—Broke-az, Po-az, Lyin-az, Cheatin-az, Dumb-az, Drunk-az, Cheap-az, Lockedup-az, Goodfornothin-az, Lazy-az, and especially his third cousin, Beatinyo-az. Wait on your Boaz and make sure he respects Yoaz.
—  I have no idea where this is from but this makes me very happy


A full tutorial made in response to a question from theartofiris, who asked me what I draw with and how I get my lines neat and clean.

Basically, I demonstrate how I use a putty/kneaded eraser to clean up my pencil sketches and make them pretty much ready for digital colour. I also inadvertently give out some legal advice about copyright—one of my cooler habits yo. ;)

Let me know if it’s helpful! I really hope you guys can use this. ^_^

and even if i ever stopped dreaming of you
i never found a better way to spend an afternoon
and its all right, to feel helpless sometimes 
as long as you know you are loved
we are loved

and nothing ever does begin like nothing ever ends
ask every atom in your body and they’ll surely tell you
"friend, i am old as time and older still"
and you are made of everything you love, you feel, or kill
i will outlive you, and forgive you, and be just a baby still

Ruth loses her nerve and misses her chance to say good-bye to Theodore before he boards the train for Ireland. It’s a decision she’ll regret for years to come.

Yes indeedy, Part 2 of Ruth and Theodore’s backstory is yet to be told. ;) Hopefully you guys will like it. ^^; In the meantime, here’s a messy sketch. :D

Wedding day. I’m attending a friend’s wedding tomorrow. He’s the first of my high school friends to tie the knot, so it’s still difficult for me to wrap my head around it. I think what scares me the most it that tomorrow’s wedding is the first of many I’ll attend in my lifetime and I have no idea when it’ll be my turn to be the bride. Scratch that—I’m even more terrified of the possibility that I’ll get married two, three, four times..?!?!

So like any artist, I deal with it by drawing it. Sketching a poofy Victorian wedding dress made me feel tons better. :) Cuz anything that’s poofy can’t be that scary. ^_^
