anon asking about how I start drawing doodle comics/what I count as a doodle comic- basically they’re comics which I try not to ‘go over’, so most of the drawings are a one shot and are almost never clean. First thing after roughly sketching the whole caboodle and typing in the dialogue is drawing the incidental characters and establishing shots; places and people that show up in the background a few times to keep the story grounded. I can largely do these left handed too, so it means I save my right (more dominant) hand for the main cast. I also always try to keep in mind that my last drawings will be better than my first, so as dire as the temptation to start with them is I try to leave the ‘best’ character drawings until last.
I also cheat like the devil to avoid doing any massive time-taking proper perspective because I’m awful.
[Drawing of two stick-figure girls walking through a park. The one in front, looking very peppy, says, “Look on the bright side–it could always be worse!” The girl behind her mutters, “Yeah, and you could be even more stupid.”]
I’ve stopped telling myself, “It could be worse,” because I’ve learned that it A) Is a very poor attempt at consolation; B) Trivializes my struggles and suffering; and C) Makes me feel guilty for feeling bad in the first place. Could it be worse? Yeah. Does that make my situation any less awful? Nope. Don’t compare your struggles to somebody else’s–and, if you’ve got a chronically ill friend, please don’t say this to them.

So it’s been a long long long loooong while huh… well no matter I fixed my tablet again and of course the first thing I did was I had to draw a gift for my Amazing and Brilliant friend @welcometothebakaparade and it’s of our favourite character Chowder from @ngoziu ‘s wonderful web comic @omgcheckplease I did this ‘quickly’ so there’s SOOO many things wrong but I’m pleased enough to let it sit otherwise I’d be revising this for hourrrs and I should be revising biology….
Let me tell you something about this scene. Let me analyze this for you. Because there is no scene - not one, not the episode with the date, not the episode with the dance - none of them that compare with this scene and let me explain why; this scene is all but physical, spoken proof that these two characters were in love with each other. And if this is what it all led to, and this is how it ends, then this show wasn’t really a comedy after all.
I loved this scene from Khirsah’s Young Avengers fic, Space Oddity, so so so goddamn much that i had to try to draw it!!! Her story is absolutely gorgeous, full of wit and beauty and lovely characters, and i’m not sure i’ve ever read a more perfect ending to a story. Which is all to say: you should go read it right now!!!
and there was just this one scene which kinda stuck with me, so i got heavily inspired to draw something and really jesus i’m so sorry about the tail i just love tails so idk, more kinda demon!vlad instead
