I had this idea that when boys were younger, maybe even studing in the same college, V definetly would be taking some photography class, and usually students there work with developing film manually… And Jumin would spend some time with V just to listen to his explanations about how it works and generally to be impressed about V’s passions ;з (but it would be even better if he also learned how to take pictures properly hahah)
So here they are all cute, in the red room (which was really fun to draw because it was such a challenge to set colors right)
Hello friend! Although I've been practicing in digital art for almost 3 years, I'm never completely satisfied by the result of my works. I usually never like the coloring. And from what I've seen you have the most unique and beautiful coloring style. So, I wanted to ask you, how did you find it? How did you expirement and settled in this style? Thank you for your time!
!!!! Thank you so much! ;v;
We’ll start with ygo !! because everything else before that is Dark Past and absolutely terrifying Never Again
early 2015, I used to try doing semirealistic art because artists like jiyu-kaze, artgerm, and sakimichan the last piece took probably 2 weeks???? it was painful lmao
I used to do the thing where you painted everything in grayscale first and then used a bunch of layer modes to layer colors on top, inspired by this, and it carried over to my tg art. it would take maybe long time to finish anything because I didn’t really know how to use it correctly.
Then my style started off being inspired by sui-zakki (the author of tg), especially these pieces x, x, x
I switched to using base colors after a while and tried to paint the way ishida did. I really liked the way that his art wasn’t exactly smooth?? or that you could still see the edges of each color next to each other… the colors looked really sharp and abstract. You could say this is the start of the style I have right now <: Along with base colors, I used a lot of lumi & shade layers to add highlights and shadows. My backgrounds were usually a lot softer and sort of random at the time (I think you can see my style improvement best through the way I drew/colored my backgrounds ‘v’ )
Around 2016ish, the colors I used were lighter because I used less lumi & shade and used more on overlay and multiply layers (this is what I do now) or by coloring with only changes in opacity (this was mostly influenced by ammeja). There’s the prominent geometric edges or whatever in my colors because I started using a more square-ish brush for everything and I really liked how it looked when the colors weren’t seamlessly blended together. (the victor in the center was my first yoi fan art, he looks so different now asjdfjgjgjgjf :’> )
I color in a more blocky/geometric style, and instead of painting my pieces and smoothing them out like the ones above, I just stuck with sketches/lineart (this old tg piece is the one that got me to stick to lineart). My coloring was mainly influenced by barachan, lanxin, and seventypercentethanol, and their pieces like x, x, x yahoberries (I love her art so much you don’t understand) influenced my blue/white outlines as well as the stray blob of colors that I sometimes don’t erase around my art
I really like crystal/gem-looking colors, and having geometric shapes as highlights or shades looked pretty cool too, so that’s how my style happened <3
Throwback to when my neck and lips were bruised from a really fun night.
Sadly this was the end stages of healing so I didn’t get to capture when my whole neck had marks on it😍
Body positivity part 5? Hahah I like having these pretty colors on my skin and wish there were more and that it happens more often 💕😭
Just a limited color palette Star from Star VS. The Forces of Evil. She was so fun to draw and color. I hope I captured her mischievous personality. I recognize she looks a bit older here than she does in the cartoon though, it wasn’t my intention haha
I wasn’t gonna post this until I had finished the second painting, but I just finished this one and I’m really happy with how it turned out so I couldn’t wait!! Might’ve gone a little overboard with the coloring, but I was having way too much fun. :D
lmao i love you guys!! this is great. i’d be honored. (other stoner!trc headcanons here & here)
in addition to noah’s super pretty bowl named lacey, he has a couple
other bongs and bubblers. he has a bong that’s like holographic and
shiny which is his fave. he also has a bowl that looks like a unicorn but he almost never uses it bc it’s really fragile. he mostly just wanted it for show anyway. oh and he’s super into flavored rolling papers. idk why noah is the one with all the equipment and stuff… he just is
on late summer nights the whole gangsey drives to the top of one of henrietta’s hills and spreads out a few blankets on the grass and they pass around a joint or two while the sun sets. and they all just lay back and look up at the stars and gansey knows the names of like. every fuckin constellation. and the ones he doesn’t know, noah makes up names for. he blanks out on ursa major (great bear) one time while he’s busy staring at adam’s freckles and noah dubs it crazyass honeybadger which leaves ronan in a fit of laughter bc ronan is honestly such a huge dork who loves stupid memes
adam convinces gansey and ronan to smoke with him in cabeswater one time and it’s even more mindblowing than usual when they see colors and seasons and settings changing right before their eyes. adam spends a lot of time touching the moss and grass and outwardly stating how much he loves plants, how much he just loves allplants and wants them all to be happy and thriving. every tree in the world deserves to be happy
oh also while they’re in cabeswater they wander a bit and find a little waterfall that ends in a pool of shallow water. they wade in and splash each other lazily while laughing and ronan is really overwhelmed over how hot the other two look in their wet tshirts. he keeps trying to peel the fabric of their shirts away from their skin because he “likes the sound”, like, okay, he’s high, so he could be telling the truth, but really we all know he is #hellagay and wants his attractive friends to be shirtless. and then he literally wolf-whistles at them. the opposite of subtle
blue and noah build a massive blanket fort in the middle of gansey’s room and gansey brilliantly suggests that they hotbox it? he’s a genius honestly. so they end up getting higher than they originally intended and blue draws stuff with a purple sharpie on gansey’s abs and noah kisses and nuzzles each and every doodle (while gansey pretty much dies of bliss) and they eventually all fall asleep in a snuggly pile under the haze of smoke. the next day there’s an imprint of blue’s drawings on noah’s cheek from where he passed out on gansey’s bare stomach and ronan makes so much fun of him lmao
after ronan and adam get over themselves and confess their feelings for each other, sometimes they’ll smoke alone at the barns, just the two of them. adam figures out that he really likes shotgunning, and it’s really hard for ronan to resist turning every exchange of smoke into a kiss. usually they end up making out either way though because ronan gets like. extra pliable and warm and inviting and he keeps talking about how good every little touch feels and adam is just. so weak for him tbh
omg and!! blue has perfected her recipe for edibles? she makes really good chocolate chip weed cookies and hash brownies and they’re honestly so delicious. possibly too delicious, in fact, bc one time gansey fails to exercise restraint and eats an extra cookie and a little over an hour later he’s so fuckin blazed that he is convinced that he mentally traveled into another realm and found glendower. he is also convinced that he can see inside of noah, which noah makes ghost jokes about - i know i’m dead, gansey, but i’m not actually transparent - but gansey says that noah just doesn’t understand, and that the inside of noah is actually neon pink (which pleases noah greatly)
and!! gansey also talks about his deep deep adoration for blue and says that because of her and noah and adam and ronan, he has realized what true love and happiness is and his eyes get all sparkly and his nose crinkles and he’s grinning so wide and shit omg i love gansey
also, they absolutely go to taco bell and order an ungodly amount of doritos locos tacos. taco bell is their favorite when they’re high, right after chinese food. though ronan can (and will) eat almost anything. including, one time, a sandwich comprised of stale wonder bread, pickle spears, and hot salsa. he tried to offer some to chainsaw but even she, an omnivorous wild bird, knew better than to eat that horrific combination
uhh hahaha i didnt expect any messages HII! from this
-lol any colors that work well together. nothing makes me happier than a pretty color scheme. neon pink gives me headaches though so any color except neon pink
-NOT TALL ENOUGH. im literally half an inch shorter than my sister and she’s taunted me about it ever since.
-I usually celebrate it in august, but celebrations have quelled over my years and my family has pretty much never celebrated it on the day exactly so im really wishy washy about the date honestly. i just use it as an excuse to buy cake and the government uses it to tell how old i am.
If you had one wish, what would it be?
-unreasonable wish? to not be so broken and weird and impossible to understand even to myself and just be able to just suck it up and be normal and a chill person who knows how to socialize and be fun around instead of constantly conflicted™ and confused and guilty about existing and being this way and just accept myself for who i am instead of constantly doubting myself and fighting off irrational internal dialogues that make me question my self value daily
-less unreasonable wish? wisdom
-reaosnable wish? kinda hungry for some tacos right about now
Palette Challenge! Took me a while, but here they are! MAN was this fun!! I’m really happy with how everything turned out too (except for Honey Lemon maybe, the way I drew her just feels awkward for some reason). Tadashi might be my favorite, but like I said, I’m really happy with all of them! I am proud of myself! Hahah.
I learned a lot doing these too. Learned about color and also I feel like I’m finally starting to figure out how I like to draw people. Not necessarily drawing “in my own style” yet, but I’m getting there I hope!
I really hope you guys like these! It was so so fun for me to do, I would definitely be down to do another round of these sometime in the future. :)
Here are the characters and their palette numbers: Tadashi 20 Ben 48 Hiccup and Astrid 40 Hiro 33 Honey Lemon 61 Norman 56 Saoirse 73 Wirt 59
Thank you to everyone who sent in a suggestion! <3
Another sky painting - took a little more time with this one. Thought I’d show some of the process. I changed the colors on this so many times hahah but was all for experimentation. One thing I need to work on this year is using color properly.
Think I might do a sky series just for fun and practice. :)
Hey guys! how are you all doing? i hope you’re alright.
These past few days i’ve been working on these stickers!! at first it was just because i felt like doing them but then some of you got excited about them on twitter so i actually worked on them (so they would be pretty hahah) and put them up in my store.
I’ve been so obsessed with gintama lately (as you can see on my blog) and this was really… so much fun, i hope you like them as much as i enjoyed doing them and maybe buy them and put them in your stuff or maybe just give them to a friend!

XD so look forward to that some time this week (i hope!) LOL!
