i draw i don't do video things

2

so I’ve been fiddling with photoshop and FINALLY got the brushes to work the way i’ve been wanting to! So for practice last night I drew some Bill and Dipper doodles while watching a friend’s stream XD 

I owe the life I live today to fandom. It’s a bit complicated.

I am an artist in her late twenties, working as an illustrator full time (meaning somehow I actually convinced people to pay me for drawing all day). I own a decently sized flat in a big city and while I struggle with mental health issues, I am coping and getting better. I get to see the world and work with international teams and have close friends I can count on. And that’s all because I was brave enough as a teen to post some fanwork on the internet.

Let me explain myself some more.

Sorry, I just wanted to say I saw that video of the Goku and Vegeta game grumps comparison and was wondering if you ever thought about doing more videos like that? It's honestly the best thing I've ever scene and I don't think I've seen anything else like it. Your art style is really loved too. Happy drawings!

oh yea omg i totally forgot about that video tbh and i kept getting new subscriber notices on my email recently and i was like ‘wtf???’ and i looked and i was like ‘ohhh myyy gooddddd…’

like i mean…

and i have like almost 4k subs too???

like???

??????

ARE YOU SERIOUS?? AKDSFHALSKDJF LOLL

honestly i thought it was gonna get like… 3k views MAX. i worked hard on it but it was just for fun and on a whim and its sort of silly and i really think no one was gonna actually dig it and i thought people would think its weird… but shit. 

WHO SPREAD THIS? HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?? WHO IS RESPONSIBLE???LOL

but sorry. to your question:

eehhhhhh ooooo ahhhhh uhmmmmmmmmmmmmmm eeeeeeeeeeeee….

like. do you mean specifically to game grumps? or to make crossovers with other stuff?

if you mean to ask if ive thought of doing more GGxDBZ crossovers? then no.. i dont know???? i mean the pachinko town clip was the only clip i thought would fit guko and vegeets and the only one i had in mind sorta. there might be a few more gg moments i think might work but its been a long while since ive watched game grumps. ive been kinda on a break with them. 

but to do other cross-over-ish things in general? there was one idea i had using the audio of the actual english dbz voice actors reading scenes from movies in the dbz voices and sort of animating(?) to that. but as you can CLEARLY SEE- I AM NO ANIMATOR LOL. (sort of why i disabled comments on that video-i dont need people telling me i cant animate… i already know that lol)

but i mean…. i WOULD like to do another sort of animated( if you can even call it that) video with better art cuz ive improved a lot since then lol

i have crossover ideas ive wanted to do for FOREVER but just never had the time… until now really. so i dont know! youll have to wait and see. i cant guarantee anything.

i do really REALLY appreciate you liked it tho, and if it actually does make anyone smile then it was worth it and im glad i made it. i dont know if ill do more in the future but who knows? it might encourage me to do more?? but for now thank you for liking it! it really mean a lot.

Don't you ever feel bad or weird speculating about other people's lives that actually want their relationships and their private lives private and just want to show the content they make?

no because: 

1. i don’t “speculate” in the sense of fabricating things that are unreasonable or untrue 

2. they don’t ONLY share youtube content. they do live shows, they have twitters and instagrams–they frequently tell us more about their lives behind their youtube videos and i don’t draw on more material than that to write about them or talk about their relationship. if they wanted full privacy they could easily achieve it and step back from all social media. but look at their recent pics and tell me if that looks like two people who don’t want anyone to discuss anything but the latest sims video 

3. i’m one person with absolutely no power and sway in the exchange between dnp and their audience. dnp are content creators with massive wealth and influence and they are in a position of power over their fans. one person sitting on a tumblr blog talking about how cute they are together has absolutely no capacity to harm them. arguments about protecting their privacy are well intentioned but ultimately hyperbolic in my opinion bc they don’t need “protection” from people who have far less power than them 

4. as i touch on above, i don’t do anything invasive or empower people who follow me to do anything invasive. i don’t have access to their private communication. i don’t stalk them. i don’t pass off opinion as fact. there are basic boundaries to what i post and say because as much as i don’t have the power to hurt dnp on my own i do respect them as individuals

lol i hope sending in this ask made you feel better, but in my opinion it seems a little smug and self-righteous. unless you want to make a respectful and actually substantive argument for why you think anything i’m doing/saying on this blog is inappropriate, i’ll probs refrain from answering questions like this in future. i hope you have a nice day! x

I just watched rewatched your 2,000 follower video, and it's really cool seeing how much your art has improved from the start of it! It's also cool seeing how much your interests have changed - you went from being a die-hard Hetalia artist to being a die-hard YoI artist! I can't wait to see more wonderful stuff from your blog!

Thank you so much!!

Also, by the way…

I should probably update that video soon.

anonymous asked:

hi I know a lot of people probably ask you this, but where do I start with animation? I want to make animated videos but I don't really think I have what I need to do it. I also can't draw very well /: but it's something I'm interested in. Is there something you'd recommend I do now? Things I can use now? Thanks if you answer (: xx

I know this is drawing, but baisically everything applies for animation principles.

so check out Alan Beckers tutorials here  (super good highly recommended)

or check out cranbersher’s guide here (I heard hes a nerd..)

I don’t really have anything for 3D but all the rules in both these playlist pretty much applies to any type of animation c:  drawing frame by frame is good to know though, to like understand the concept quicker, imo since thats what I understand, but yeah just take your pick, you don’t have to draw to know how to animate c:

OH WAIT! there is one for 3D…. RIGHT HERE ;)

Hey guys! I'm a little late to your guys' channel, it was only about two months ago that I found it! And I feel horrible because your channel is EVERYTHING I'M LOOKING FOR! There's gaming, there's art, there's unboxing, there's YOU TWO! Thank you guys for being so amazing! (Also, I love how you guys draw yourself into the game characters for the video icon thing. I don't remember what it's called. But it's what got me hooked in the first place!) Much love!

!!!!! well wowie thank you so much!
we keep fluctuating between being active and inavtive but we’re still just trying to figure out what’s best to do!
(also they’re called thumbnails c: )

toad made a good effort, but the stars don’t align for him the same way they do for waluigi, or @therealjacksepticeye playing mario kart 8 deluxe is the best thing ever.

(inspired by the best game ever made; this is my first digital drawing… ever… so any critique is v v welcome <3)

How to draw hands?

ok honestly

i have no idea what i’m doing 70% of the time i’m drawing HAHAHA

i’m a very free-flowy person when i draw (that’s why all my works are messy T_T) so i don’t usually follow bases (why are you asking me advice i’m just gonna disappoint u HAHAHAHA :(( )

and!!! does anyone really know how to draw hands omg HAHAHAHA i feel like i’ll never understand hand anatomy T_T

because of my lack of experience, i’ll attach some hand references and tutorials i’ve saved before at the end of this post!! ^o^)/ T_T

but if u want something from me… i used to use mcdo french fries as a base for hands (please don’t ask why i also don’t know) HAHAHAHA

maybe i was just hungry idk why i did this a lot before HAHAHA

huhuhu

but the thing i do the most is literally

stare at my hands. HAHAHAHA (stare at ur hands it’s efficient) it’s my best, most convenient reference T_T and drawing a live model again and again and again really helps!! (practicing is key!! ^o^)

anyway, this probably helped you 0%!!! (i’m not even that good with hands so) HAHAHA i’ll leave some links below!! :)) T_T

good references!! (because honestly you shouldn’t trust me HAHAHA)

for anatomy in general, this page called Cartoon Block shares really good tutorials!! ^o^)/ but keep in mind that live models are probably the best things to practice anatomy on!! (i wish i could go to a live model drawing session one day T_T)

*has zero fucks to give*

Taehyung: Pisces, Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius

Seokjin: Aquarius, Aries, Virgo, Capricorn

“Enjoy!”

Is drawing fanart of amvs a thing…?
I drew a thing for @pyrachan’s Ramune Rooftops amv that I really liked… Not sure if you can tell it’s inspired by it though?? I struggled a lot with the colors and it was hard capturing the exact feel I wanted to but it was still fun :’)

(I am now on a camping with free wifi)(I mean, it is very bad wifi, won’t load videos and loading texts already takes a while, or however you spell that, but it is wifi)
Does anyone that reads this maybe have any simple doodle/drawing ideas that I could try to draw? If you do, could you please please please tell me?(in a reblog, comment thing, ask, anon ask, message, I don’t really care how)
Also, if I do get ideas from anyone that I am able to try to draw, I could post the attempt so that you at least know how that went if anyone wants that or something

Ever since I watched that waxing challenge video about a week ago I couldn’t get this image out of my head. so… yeah. DAYUM LOOK AT DEM LEGS JACKABOY

This is the kind of contribution I make to this community. PLEASE DON’T BLOCK MEH (ESPECIALLY JACK PLS)

(all things aside I’m satisfied with how the face has turned out)

for the which lion thing!! my greatest strength and weakness are that i like to lead bc i trust myself most to get the job done (and i do) but when i need help i really struggle to ask for it because i don't trust others to understand. i love pink and fruit and dreaming of adventure and my hobbies are drawing, singing, and playing video games. (this is rlly cute thing btw i hope this enough to go off??)

murburger  asked:

OH MY GOD!!! I just finished watching your tutorial and I must tell you that I am so grateful for you doing that, I don't have the first clue as to drawing, and your video helped me immensely with starting out, i was really able to see a whole process condensed and simplified to where I could understand and even see a little of your creative process. Thank you so much for doing that. Also your voice is gorgeous. As smooth and silky as butter

Awww, THANK YOU!!!  <3  That is soooo great, I’m really glad it helped you!!!  I tried to think of things that I would have liked to know when I first started digital art, back before the age of YouTube tutorials. 

And thank you, it’s always a bit weird hearing your own voice if you’re not used to it, so I’m glad it wasn’t grating or annoying to you!  XD

(This is the video, for those who may not have already known about it)

anonymous asked:

Now I'm just curious because I'm rather new to the fandom, but has it been mentioned at all how utterly unlikely it is that Arthur could have pushed Lewis off that cliff without the thing in the caves aid? Lewis was a big guy and Arthur isn't. Even if he's hiding muscle underneath layers it wouldn't be all that possible to give Lewis a good SHOVE with one hand and have him go flying like he does in the video. At most the big guy would take a step back and just... tumble.

Welcome to the fandom! We like alpacas, torturing the dorito weenie lord, drawing Lewis in dresses, badass Vivi, and little shit Mystery! Hope you enjoy your stay!

I actually don’t think this has been discussed before, huh. I’ve never thought about this before, interesting.

Like, I’m pretty sure that being possessed and ghosts have ridiculous strength, so I guess that could work? Maybe? 

Huh, I actually… I’ve never…

Huh…
