but then i decided to post this first and then go back to the graphic xd


Star Boys ⭐ ~ step-by-step process of >this< piece (^   v ^) <3 click through for minor captions!

since Tumblr can only hold eight photos, here’s my process reduced to eight steps. there’s a lot more fussing and changing and adjusting that goes in, but this feels like a good overview.

and here’s some bonus back story! X3 hehe~ i was really frustrated with my work last week… i honestly felt like maybe it was just time to move on and do something totally different. like it was just time to pack in my character work and go back to being a graphic designer. i kept starting new things over and over and over again and throwing them away. i felt very defeated. i was drowning my sorrows in coke zero and k-pop videos when i decided to just draw some self indulgent garbage to make myself feel better, regardless of how it might turn out looking. and i had no idea that it’d turn into this! XD

so when you’re thinking~ “why Pidgy… why did you dress those beautiful boys so stupidly?!?!” (7O  [  ]O)7 it was the k-pop dood! i was under the influence! have you seen the ridiculous/awesome clothes they wear?!?!? it’s FABULOUS! and i didn’t start drawing this thinking that i’d ever post it! HAHAHA!!! but it just worked out so smoothly! (O  v O) <3 and i felt myself feeling again like i knew i could - and new i wanted to - improve! I AIN’T GIVING UP YET!!!! (>   A <)

so yeah… (^   v ^);;; it’s a bit silly, and very colorful! hahaha! but~ i really tried my best to do new things and put my best foot forward… so i hope some of you enjoy it! i still have so much more i want to do! (O    w O) <3 <3 <3

anonymous asked:

Hi, can you recommend some CS fics with true love kiss and after true love kiss? :)

Hi nonnie!

Sorry this took so long, but I honestly didn’t know what exactly you might’ve been looking for. One-shots, multi-chapter, etc. Especially since most fics are always CS falling in love, so the one’s with TLK usually take a while to get there.

However, between me and my good friend (captain swan otp (on ff.net)) I think we got some things here you might like. 

I haven’t read these but I hope they’re what you’re looking for. If not, feel free to ask me again if you have more specifics in mind. :)

Also if anyone has any fics to add to this list, please do for this lovely anon! :)
