I’m trying a new thing to keep me productive, every once in a while I’ll post a fan art for one of my favorite things! This will be an attempt to not only practice my drawing skills but also keep me from delving into an endless pit of sorrow as I proceed to draw the same characters every week for the rest of my life. I’m currently calling it Fanart Friday because alliteration is SICK.
This week I drew Red Squib from Baman Piderman, which I recently rewatched. He’s only just got his new feets and is already quickly becoming my personal fave character. And since it’s just in time the holiday season I gave him a sweater, cuz why not.
If you haven’t seen Baman Piderman (um, how?), check it out! It’s a good time.
under the cut you’ll find #103 245x140 gifs of Korean adorkable smiler actor LEE HYUN-JAE in his role as Freddie in the last two episodes of the Korean web-drama 뷰티살롱M (Beauty Salon M). Combined with my previous gif pack there’s a total of #304 gifs. Holy-fucking-moly.
All these gifs were made my me (pyxpyxpyx) from scratch. Put ‘em in your crackships, graphics; ya’ll they’re practically yours to use in any way you want for the low, low price of free. i legit do a kick-flip every time there’s a like or reblog, like you don’t have to but it’ll make me happy and i’ll def think your cool. have fun, be safe, enjoy my pals!!
Changed up and filtered my Frae Ryder portrait. I keep trying new things with her face but I always keep coming back to this. Character creation willing I can get something close (hair and eye wise). She’s my scary science sniper and deserves scary intense eyes.

more random thoughts i’m flinging onto the dash but that feel when u come across a new blog for a character you love or just a new blog in general and you’re jittering in ur seat waiting to read their rules & about bcuz like? i don’t want to just assume a character is going to be such and such and i’d hate to follow & then find out later our rules clash & make us incompatible? bcuz i’m trying to only follow ppl i have every intention of interacting with. so. or maybe this feel is just me? lol
Trueeeeee love. A little different set than what I’ve done in the past, but I hope you guys like it! I love trying new things so be prepared for me to keep changing it up! taylorswift what do you think?
Did you see all the hate Chris Evans is getting? :(
I’ve seen a lot of people and their opinions on him being cast in the new role. I try to keep my opinions to myself on things because if your opinion isn’t like someone else’s they’ll tell you you’re wrong and wanna argue. And I don’t have time for that.
