AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS

anonymous asked:

So how long does it usually take for you to draw a comic? And do you have any advice for people who are new to drawing comics?

it depends on the comic? if it’s just something where i can copy and paste the lines with slight adjusting probably 1-3 hours (depending on the length and overall complexity) and if it’s something where i’m drawing every panel individually around 2-5 hours (again depending on length and complexity)?? i have no real way of measuring time when i draw though haha, i just kind of draw and occasionally look to see that it’s not 6am so i couldn’t give you a real accurate measurement? 

as for advice…most of the comics i draw are decently simple just to get the point across, i’m in NO way a professional at it hahaha! (just look at those backgrounds…) so i’m not sure i have too much useful advice to give? i’d just say…. don’t worry too much about minute details, not every panel is going to be perfect. people consume comics very quickly, and as long as you have a good concept people can forgive a lot (or not even notice it)… but try to look back on previous panels as much as you can to make sure they all string together and make a legible piece since it is all being taken in as one concept instead of many smaller concepts…and just have fun with it? find out what the focus of your comic is and roll with it, don’t make it too complicated (however much you might want to), and have fun with it. people would rather look at something completely ridiculous than something too stiff. good luck out there! may you have many nice tags in your comic making journey.

Journal 3 shitpost doodle dump part 2! (Part 1 is over here)

To be honest, I don’t think I’m done yet. There’ll probably be a part 3 as well because there’s just so much more I want to poke fun of. This book truly is the gift that keeps on giving.

as many of you already know, @crackedverbosity ‘s family was deeply effected by the disastrous floods in Louisianan earlier this month. Though the waters have since receded, the need to rebuild her family home has been left in it’s wake. You can read all about her experience HERE.

Cracked, is a beloved friend and i would do anything in my power to help her family, but by myself i can only do so much to help raise money for their Go Fund Me campaign which can be found HERE. I’m hoping to help encourage others to give what they can by offering what incentives i can for helping them raise the money to continue with the mountain of repairs necessary to restore their home!

If you are able to help (and don’t mind me seeing your given name and mailing address) e-mail me a copy of your Go Fund Me receipt (along with your mailing address and tumblr @ so i know who it is! <3) to pidgymails@gmail.com (these can be verified against Cracked’s list, so please, please don’t attempt to send me fraudulent receipts, this is for charity!) and I will snail mail you the corresponding reward pack listed below…

FOR DONATIONS OF 20$-49$

  • two randomly selected mini prints from my existing body of work
  • a hand written note telling you how much i love you!!! <3 <3 <3

FOR DONATIONS OF 50$-99$

PLEASE BE AWARE

  • the prints you will be sent will be randomly chosen, so they may be canonical or AU, but everything will be kylux (and each will be different!). prints may contain some partial nudity (bare chests/legs) but will not be especially NSFW or contain blood, etc. You’ve all (maybe?) seen my work, you know what to expect! hahahah! XD
  • none of my work was ever meant to be printed, so the colors may be a little wacky, i draw in RGB just for Tumblr, so i can’t say what will happen for sure! but they will all be printed on glossy card stock! <3
  • i’ll send your prints anywhere in the world! i don’t know how long it will take to get there… but yeah! (O wO)
  • i wont be sending out the packages until September 30th. as some of you already know i’m getting married in the first week of September, so i’m mostly on hiatus from Tumblr ~ but Cracked’s family has to start repairs on their home right now, so i apologize in advance, but i hope the delay wont dissuade any of you from donating!
  • this post is valid only until September 25th, as i’ll need time to print, cut, and label all the packages to be sent on the 30th!

Thank you to everyone who is able to help! and also to everybody who reblogs this post and helps circulate the word! (-^ ___^-) this means so much to me, and i know that together we can all make a huge difference for Cracked and her family! <3 <3 <3 Much love and hugs to you all!!!
