How to, step-by-step, make expressions mean different things by changing just one facial feature at a time. *shrug* I’m not very good at explaining how I do expressions, I just…feel out what kinds of muscles seem to fit and tweak those. And sometimes, ever so slightly, little adjustments could mean the difference between fury and euphoria. 

I’m not really planning on having kids, but if I did this is how shopping would work for my girls or boys: nothing outside mom’s price range, and if it doesn’t make you look and/or feel your best we won’t get it. No matter how “popular” or “cool” the store, brand, or style is.

Goodness gracious you have such charming art! I don't know how I missed your blog in my mass acnl-artist-following-frenzy, but I'm certainly glad I'm following you now~ What's your medium, if you don't mind my asking?

You’re EindoakCrossing aren’t you?  I’ve seen your posts around!  Keep at it!  There are so many cool AC artists out there…it seems like I’m constantly finding more and more of them, and some of them I’ve even made friends with, which is the coolest of beans.  Neni’s SugarPan was my introduction to the community, and I’m pleased as punch to now call her my friend.

As for my medium, most of my posts on this blog are pencil sketches from my sketchbook that I’ve scanned and then colored in photoshop.  Over on my main, I actually have a gif of one of my AC pieces being made.  I use the same process for giving my sketches flat colors and posting them to my main, and for a 6-hour in class assignment last week that I posted some process of.


Some scrapped pictures I was going to use on my animal crossing tumblr, but whenever I tried putting them to color, they always came out looking crappy so I scrapped ‘em. *shrug* Maybe if I tried them again I’d like them, but for now I’ll consign them to scrapped sketches.
