i drew it with you in mind

Recently I realised that my need to make “good” art was boxing me in, and I was losing my imaginative flair.

When we were kids we drew and scribbled whatever came to mind, and we coloured it however we wanted, and we went outside the lines, and it didn’t matter if the things we drew were totally two dimensional, because they had character. I used to draw these silly little cartoon crocodiles with one line and they were very very not what crocodiles look like but my dad loved them and I showed him every single one, with no embarrassment. I was proud of them. 

So I’ve started scribbling again. I mean really scribbling. A lot doesn’t make “sense” and sometimes turns out “ugly” but I’m letting my imagination control my hand and not worry about the “quality” of it. And it’s So. Much. Fun. I’ve drawn aliens and landscapes and spaceships and old men and viking helmets and crystal earrings.

So if you’re an artist and you’re getting frustrated about not being “good enough” (because I know I was), then try to clear your mind and let your hand go wild, who cares if it ends up wonky, it’s your special brand of wonky.

Ah, missed Pablo already! I really like the way you draw the Judge, you know? I don't know if you already answered this before, since I am new to this blog and I can't find it anywhere, did it take long for you to decide in what way to draw him? Ah, since we're at it now, how did you decide to choose this colouring style for the comic? Did you just roll with what first came up in your mind, or did you experiment first?

No one ever asked, but I did post some old designs before I started drawing him the way I do now back in like 2014.

at first I made Pablo kind of lanky and lean, more like a normal cat. Mostly cause it’s what I usually saw from other artists who I really enjoyed seeing their interpretations. I didn’t like how mine was turning out though. So I ended up looking at the original sprite and drew it more as is. A smaller cat, big head, tiny body. Ended up loving this one way better, and he’s also super cute, But not without a touch of creepy. :)

As for the coloring style. I was originally gonna do my usual old shading, but I always didn’t care for the look of it in my old comics. So I decided to go for cell shading instead, something I was never super use to but I always felt like it worked rather well for comics in general. But I decided this after I already started and as a result, page 2 vs page 3 have completely different coloring styles

Maybe I’ll go back and redraw page 2. idk. Thanks for the great question! :)

I don't care if you draw NSFW work, I love your stuff I'll still support you. I would like to see your NSFW stuff if you don't mind.

You’ll soon find out, but keep in mind that this type of NSFW I drew is not what most people would expect

I drew Lizard Riiiiiick! :D Lmao, Pocket Mortys / Rick and Morty are definitely my obsession right now and probably forever, cuz holy fffffuuuu. I love it so much! xD and I hope you don’t mind @rickcrte I definitely used your art as reference :3 It’s so strange going from one style I was comfortable with to the classic Rick and Morty style, hard to get used to, but I think I’ll get a better handle on it with practice, and maybe even come up with my own style for the boys! 

@mayor-aby hey aby!! a few months ago i had just gotten my drawing tablet and i drew your mayor (under the url spacehopping). ive been practising a bit more and though im still not very confident, i think ive improved a bit so here is an updated space aby!! (i had trouble drawing the alien so i turned him into a ghost, i hope you dont mind!)

Hey @happycloude-91!! I made a silly little thing based off of that Spy AU you created. I drew it as a way of saying thanks for your support and lovely messages, so I hope you like it!! ^^

seamus and dean you guys

13.05.17 // Updated my physics window for the first time in ages! Had some thoughts over the past few weeks surrounding a free scalar field universe model so I drew them up as well as some old game theory because I watched a Beautiful Mind and felt nostalgic. I hope you are all having wonderful days / evening / whatever plane of existentialism you currently observe 😉
