art-jam

I did an art meme (basically a base and you draw characters over the base) request by the people from this website that I go to lol. I asked which one is their favorite character or who they want on it and basically drew it in. Art memes are my jam, alright. ahaha Might do some more when I have time. They’re fun to practice coloring on :)

They were your babies– you loved them and cherished them. You drew headshots of them facing left in the margins of your school notes. You drew comics about them, RPed with them, made playlists dedicated to them.

It’s been a while. Years, probably. You’re older and wiser now. It’s time to dust off your old original characters and draw them again. Redesign them or just redraw them; whatever suits your fancy. Draw something that would make your younger self turn on capslock.

This is an art jam, focused on shameless self-indulgence, joyful creation and shining a spotlight on your growth as an artist. If you’re interested, please reblog so that more people can see and join in.

The official blog is wherearetheynowjam. Follow it to see reblogs from the jam tag. The blog will be active during June. Follow and submit your works there. This art jam is organized by @doodlemancy.

GUIDELINES & SUBMISSION PAGE 

Remember your old OCs? You loved them, you cherished them, you RPed with them, you doodled them in the margins of your school notes… maybe you made them their own LiveJournal account. It’s been a while now, though, right? You’ve grown and moved on and you’re writing a story that isn’t mostly a ripoff of your favorite anime in 6th grade.

It’s time to dust off those old OCs and show them a little love! After all, they helped you grow and learn so much. Redraw old art or draw something new; re-design them, or leave them as they were. Draw the ending of the story you never quite finished. Dig up your old art, if you’re able and willing. Draw gift art for your younger self. 

To participate, tag your artwork #wherearetheynowjam! You can also submit your art to the blog. The official blog is @wherearetheynowjam! If you want to participate or just think this is a cool idea, please boost the signal and follow!

@doodlemancy organized this jam and drew the promo art. (Such as it is. ;D)

Ok so @littlestpersimmon has my all time favorite fam jam art style. Like I dare anyone to disagree with me when I say their stuff is tear inducing and awe inspiring. Hence I commissioned them to do this for piece a scene that I was writing for my pb&j fic but instead I stared at it for twenty minutes, wrote some fluff based on it, and made the last chapter super long to wrap it up because damn doesn’t this make you want nothing but happiness for them?

So in conclusion pb&j is pure, Bell is a beautiful human being, thank you for your time.
possible stuff to flesh out garnet's character

- she is super into psychology and theories on human relationships
- it’s mostly because she wants to learn about human relationships but it’s also to figure out possible ways to help the corrupted gems
- abstract art is her JAM. it’s just feeling, no need for a lot of detail or thought before starting something
- BRING BACK GARNET WAACKING
- she likes music and dancing!!! all kinds, but her favorite involves a good beat
- knows a lot about psychology and is the (enthusiastic) group counselor. she gets kinda sad when the gems don’t think they can trust her, which is why she is so insistent on open communication, this makes secret team all the more heartbreaking for her
- she also likes meditation (a la here comes a thought) for obvious reasons
- is SUPER INTO crime shows like CSI and mystery style programs, she likes to test herself to see if she can guess the ending without using future vision
- garnet. fucking. loves. chess. loves it. strategy is her bread and butter, she tries to get amethyst into it but amethyst can’t sit still for that long so they get into dnd
- garnet LARPS as “battle training”
