i like to call this art

so we all know how teru stands in his well know “pigeon toed” stance  

(credit to wiki)

tbh i just always thought it was cute and just like his thing??

however before i started crying about caesar i noticed caesar from jojos bizarre adventure fought the same way!!

knees bent and shit you know. 

now looking further into it i found out this was an actual stance in martial arts!! from what ive learned its called the sanchin dachi stance! apparently its to help the fighter stay grounded 

some examples

(this captures it pretty well lmao..)

now i dont know shit about martial arts so please correct me if im wrong but i thought it was cool to know why teru had a reason to fight like that and not just be dorky.


so it’s the end of march now and jack and casie is slowly chugging along. still working on the overworld areas (something called ‘decks’ are involved) (and they suck) and working on fixing up some underlying systems that just didn’t fuckin work but i expect a new demo out in the first two weeks of april if not sooner

in order to expedite the whole ‘make the video game’ thing i’ve been considering picking up volunteer artists and trading, like, art or lessons or something for grunt work and the like but i’m still sort of skeptical about putting any part of my project in the hands of other people but, on the off chance i do bite the bullet, i ended up drawing a new big dumb model sheet for jack and casie (to replace the older one) (admittedly, it’s because someone asked me for a reference for fan art.) (i’m not going to lie to you. it didn’t take much.)

the kickstarter goal date is still ‘before e3′, so the latest i’m willing to run it is april or may. i’m quite confident itll go through, especially considering i’ve gotten a couple of offers from distributors and publishers

i’ve actually been practicing my blurbs but my favorite is still just

“A parody pocket RPG about a mysterious robot from a long lost civilization, and Casie.”

I enjoyed making my last art sequence so I decided to make another one! I’m calling it that because I don’t think it counts as animation XD

Because both @therealjacksepticeye and I hit a milestone around a similar time, mine being smaller of course, I decided to celebrate it with this little picture story! :D

I don’t know what gave me this idea… and it’s probably not my best art ever but it took hours and hours to make! I hope you like it anyway ^-^

When you decided to become a comic book writer did you have someone whose writing inspired you yo say "wow i want to things like this" but not to similar? Because i certainly had like... a lot You included, specially yoy, you put in a lot of humor, tearjerking drama cool action (and most important HEART)(i call that the Steven Universe Formula(don't ask why)) and i want to do things like that without copying it, the thing is, when do you know how to make your art without "ripping off"

Oh yeah.

 When I was in high school Frank Miller was writing and drawing daredevil, Alan Moore was writing Swamp thing, Howard Chaykin was writing and drawing American flagg…  and I was a goner :-)

 just those three and I was pretty much inspired to do this no matter what. but I soon realized that what I loved about those three creators was that they had an original voice. That they were pulling from outside of comics for inspiration and pulling new things into comics. And if I was truly to be a fan, if I was truly to be inspired by them, then I would do the same. Not imitate their ‘style’ but to look inside myself for what inspires me, reach out into the world of those things that inspire me, and bring them into comics. 

 when I can get past my inherent self-loathing and look at what I’ve done right. I know I did that right.

super super super shitty quick concept sketches of jonathan for the whole ~heathers~ au? like pre-heathers he just looks generally disheveled and tired and just wears hoodies but the heathers give him Gud Clothes, dye and cut his hair, and pierce his ears while theyre at it for Maximum Edge lol

also i decided that since the heathers are providence, jojo, and lil, that im just gonna make their last names heather because then it would make sense why theyd be called the heathers 

can you imagine prov sitting there with the earring hole puncher thingy and being like “ok stand still this is for the AESTHETIC” and he probably cries

or however this meme is called
got inspired by @malengilblog `s meme thing ;3
and yes, i confess that the unicorn`s horn look like something nsfw, but i noticed it later
ps: i changed a thing in the letters because it was hard to read

How I Design My Characters

Here are a few exercises/techniques I use to make sure that my facial designs are differentiated enough that characters are recognizable even without their “signature” attributes. (By this I mean hairstyle, fashion sense, most common expressions, etc.)

For this demonstration, I’m going to make up two random characters. Let’s call them Amy and Brianna.

1. Create a chart/List it out

I like to list the character’s “permanent” features out and compare them. By permanent, I mean things like face shape, eyebrow thickness/arch, nose width and bridge type, etc. This is usually during the early stages of character design, and I use this to help get a feel for different potential designs until I find one I like.

An example for Amy would be: oval-shaped face, straight nose bridge with thin nose, full lips, thick/straight brows.

Brianna: Round or heart-shaped face, flat nose bridge with wide tip, thin lips, arched brows

Note that I do not list hairstyle. That’s one of the features I like to remain flexible.

2. Practice, practice, practice

Here is where you can practice basics like expressions or angles (though in this example, both girls are only shown facing head-on). This is where you can tweak their features to your liking, should you decide you’re not a fan.

This is also where I like to play with their hairstyles. Here, the hair length and texture is left consistent, but you want your characters to be recognizable even when they aren’t shown with hair.

The more faces your draw for each character, the more their distinguishing features will come with ease.

3. Self-presentation

After faces are established, body type, posture, and clothing style are another exercise to practice. These attributes will give your readers more hints about the character’s personality - they will get a different impression of someone who wears nothing but ratty sweatpants and greasy tank tops than of someone who always seems to be dressed like they stepped off the pages of Vogue.

Here, Amy shows more of a preference for a fashion subculture (or if you were on tumblr a few years back “soft grunge”) fashion, while Brianna is much more feminine. They both show skin, though in different amounts.

4. Switch

Once I have a really good grasp on the characters, sometimes I’ll play with having them wear items from the other’s closet, and trying to draw how best they would react to having to dress a certain way.

I hope this was helpful to some, or at least an interesting look at someone else’s technique!

I got something to say about you ungrateful artists out there.

It really ticks me off when people who take time out of their schedule to make things for artists, or even people in general. Like fan art, a fanfic, music, and so on. And all they fucking get in return is a simple “Thanks.” or “Oh cool, look everyone! Yeah, thanks.”

That is a fucking dick move. And even if it doesn’t look that great or sound like the most amazing thing to you. They put their feelings and hearts into those pieces only to get a half-assed “Thanks”? No, I don’t fucking think so. There’s even artists out there that just post art and tag it with simple tags without even saying thanks to the person who submitted it to them.

What your doing is really hurting them to the point some may even just give up. What the fuck is wrong with you people? Why do you feel to be such an unthankful douchebag?! I don’t care if your popular or not, you’re LUCKY to have someone make something for you when they’ve clearly put effort into their gifts that they made themselves. So how about you stop being a stuck up snob, and be more thoughtful of the words you fucking type and things you say to encourage your fans to keep going.

And if you’re one of those douchebags, you don’t even deserve gifts. You deserve a bitch slap to your fugly face.

I had to call Nintendo Customer Service yesterday to get myself set up for a repair on my Left JoyCon

The dude on the other end was amazing!
We were chattin’ it up. He was givin’ me a hard time over my Inu-Yasha e-mail address.

He told me all about his old OC that he’s trapped with since he made his e-mail after them:

Scorch the Hedgehog
Son of Naruto and Hinata Hedgehog

I’m gonna draw him fan art…
I have no idea what the character looks like. I’m just gonna fuckin’ wing it

It was a great phone call

anonymous asked:

Thought I'd let you know that a tumblr user called thatweirdasiankid reposted one of your art drawings. And it looks like your not the only one they've done it too either

Thank you for letting me know! It looks like they did

I’ll probably report them once I get out of class 😣

anonymous asked:

“Champ Payne”? That sounds almost like the alcoholic wine? Champagne? OK, y'all… someone mad dumb there ๐Ÿคง

Even if “champ” is by some ridiculous circumstance what they are “calling” him. I’m gonna say this is not his real name… no real name no way to find out if Liam’s on the birth certificate! Just a thought :)

I would like to believe JoJo is fucking with us and they wouldn’t be tacky enough to do that to that poor baby.  I wouldn’t go looking for the birth certificate anyway., but fwiw, I would be surprised if Loammy’s name wasn’t on it. 


This means that you, as my mutual, can now like this to show me that you are cool if I randomly:

  • Invade your inbox with zany memes of the memiest proportions (or just IC in general)!
  • Send you memes (if the above bullet was confusing)!
  • Like your starter calls!
  • Tag you in random starters!
  • Plot with you and your muse!
  • Develop our muses’ relationships together!
  • Chat with you OOC!
