Whats the 100 circle project?

A fantastic assignment my kick ass digital arts teacher came up with.

Take a quarter (or similiar sized coin) and trace 100 circles, then fill them with whatever illustrations come to mind. And that’s it!

It can be quiet the challenge coming up with ideas but really allows you to explore your own creativity and get inspired by the little things around you.

Here’s an example of mine so far (sorry for the bad photo quality):

Moga, how do you draw so well? I know it's just practice practice practice, but every time I practice, I feel like I can't achieve "spectacular" drawings and I just give up. How do you NOT give up?

I wanna show you something:

See this horrifying thing…

I drew that bad boy freshman year of highschool. When I started digital my sophomore year, things really hadn’t improved that much:

But I kept at it! Why? Because I loved what I was doing. It didn’t matter how much I sucked or how bad my art turned out, I was enjoying the process of drawing, and to me that was all that mattered.

Even if you feel like you’re art hasn’t improved, I challenge you to take a drawing/painting from a year or two ago and redraw it.

You will be pleasantly surprised by how much you’ve grown.

And remember, never compare yourself to another artist when it comes to skill. Always admire and critique, but never compare. Everyone is on their own artistic journey.

Sometimes art is less about the outcome of a piece, and more of the experience you had making it.

I hope this helped, and I hope you don’t mind me publishing it publicly. I think a lot of people are experiencing the same thing you’re going through! Hope you have a fantastic day!

Artists Ask Go - Moga Edition
I got so many asks, I thought I’d just put all the answers in one big chunk! If you have anymore questions, don’t be shy! I love to talk! 1: Take a picture of your workspace.

This is what the workspace back home looks like. The one now is just my laptop and tablet (college life what what)

2: Show your pencilcase and what’s inside.

I rarely ever use pencil, but I do consider this to be my ‘pencil’ case

3: Show a thing you last drew, no matter how small or a “doodle” it is.

Three friends and I were bored during an art lecture, so we passed around my notebook, each of us drawing one thing at a time. Annnnd this is how it turned out. 

4: Lineart or coloring? Lineart by far! I mean don’t get me wrong, I enjoy coloring, but I love drawing out a character so much more <3 5: Who/what inspires you? Other artists. Experiences or emotions I personally have. 6: Draw a same pic with your dominant and non-dominant hand.

I’m laughing so hard right now x]

7: Do you have any OCs? Yes! But I don’t really post drawings of them here. Maybe someday? 8: Do you listen to music when you draw? Favorites? Absolutley. Honestly, it all depends on what I’m feeling. Like If I’m drawing an intense badass picture, I’m gonna be rocking metal or dubstep. If I’m drawing something sad, it’s Natalie Merchant’s album “Tigerlily” all the way. 9: Favorite thing to draw? People. Expressions. Blood and gore. Comics. 10: Least favorite thing to draw? Mother fucking hands. Perspective.  11: Draw a pic of yourself like how you look just now.

Whadda babe.

12: Any weird artist behaviour you admit doing? I stick out my tongue when I draw. Also I make the same expressions as my characters…

Mike Brown was being threatening towards the officer, attacked him, and tried to take his gun. While yes, the officer is most likely racist for telling him to get out of the street, Mike Brown was far from innocent in this tragedy. He wasn't trying to run away or shot in the back like some witnesses claim. All shots were from the front. I know it's easier to trust a popular post than research it yourself, but that's how misinformation spreads. And it spreads like wildfire on tumblr. God bless.

I assume you haven’t researched Mike Brown’s autopsy report.

He was shot multiple times, once in the head, entering through the top and exiting through the base of the neck, and multiple times in the hand and arm consistent with someone shot while kneeling and holding their hands above their head.

I suggest you do your research before suggesting he was being threatening to the officer.

anonymous asked:

hey Moga do you have any pets?? :3

Hells yeah!

Here’s me and my dog Benjamin (he’s 14!):

And this is my cat Puff last year on Halloween:

Unfortunately no pets are allowed where I’m living on campus, so I don’t get to see these two babies often :’(

anonymous asked:

I love your blog but that abortion thing and your rather nasty response bugged me. Could you just tag "social justice" stuff so I could blacklist it? I'd hate to unfollow you. :(

I’d appreciate if you did unfollow me. Right here, right now.

My comment: “There’s over 16 million kids in the United States living below the federal poverty level (x). Where’s their glass box?” is not nasty nor should it bug you.

If you think it’s appropriate to put $500k in a glass box to sit in front of a church, rather than give that money to living children who are suffering in poverty, you need to sort out your priorities.

That is all I’m going to say on the subject matter. For anyone wondering, this is the post this anon is referring to.

anonymous asked:

Not all men are like that though! By following this movement, you're dooming an entire gender! Looks like the shoe is on the other foot, hmm? You can't base an entire gender on a very small minority.

Whoa there!

To me, this movement isn’t about how every single man is “like that” (because most men are really amazing people) it’s about the fact that women should have to fear that every single man could be “like that”. It isn’t saying that all men are a threat, it’s stating that no one should live in a world where a woman has to assume that men are a threat.

If I’m walking alone late at night and I see a man walking towards me. No matter who he is, I immediately feel threatened. If someone sits next to me on the bus, I feel more comfortable if it is a woman verses a man. It has nothing to do with him, it has everything to do with how this culture has put a seed in the back of my mind telling me that as a woman I am not safe when alone with men.

Furthermore, have you read any of my other feminist comments? I am a full believer that feminism means equal rights for both women and men. I’ve written comics, essays, and answered asks all on the subject. So before you accuse me of being sexist against men, I suggest you go through some of my other comments on the subject, hmm?

I’m not going to say anything more on the subject, because I’ve answered a few asks relating to this. If you really want to pick a fight with someone over #YesAllWomen, might I suggest heading over to a feminist blog?

anonymous asked:

So Moga why are you a vegan? My parent's said I shouldn't become one because there's too many animals that we eat. I don't wanna be eating animals but I love the food too much to eat tofu.

Excellento question my dear anon!

Honestly I’m vegan for a couple reasons:

-The way animals are treated in the United States before slaughter is appalling and something I don’t want to take part of

-My body and mind feel healthier when I’m munching on veggies and fruit over fatty foods (literally, like a steak with white fat dripping off it). And, yes, I do get enough protein.

- I’ve watched multiple documentaries about how animal products are just plain bad for your health. Yes, even dairy. There’s a lot more efficient ways to get calcium then from a cow’s breast milk.

If you want to be vegan I say go for it! You say you love food too much to be vegan and just eat tofu, but what I don’t think you realize is that vegans can eat a lot of food. Seriously. Fruits, veggies, grains (can you say P-A-S-T-A!?), all that good stuff.

Hell, even oreos are vegan. In fact, anything food you can think of, I can almost guarantee there is a vegan supplement. 

As for tofu. That stuff can be fucking delicious when cooked right. Seriously check this shit out:

Oh. Ah.

Dammmmmmmmmmnnnnnnnn.

The only thing I dislike about being vegan is the people who give me shit about it. The way I see it, what you eat is nobody’s goddamned business. Fuck, if you want to eat a box of donuts everyday, then DO IT. I mean, you’re going to have to deal with the consequences, but if that’s what you want to do, no one has any right to tell you otherwise.

Oh, also, people automatically assume that my being vegan means I’m part of some like cult or something? Where we all wear hemp and break into zoos and don’t shave? Or that we all grow our own food in our backyards and don’t have electricity?

Nah, I’m a normal college student who partys and is in fandoms and loves art and gushes about cats and Jensen Ackles. 

Sorry for the long answer xD Have an awesome day!

Your last reblog, "Sharing Brushes", is very offensive. We -know- that you're superior at art; you don't need to share a "comic" that makes people who are inferior look stupider than they already feel. Thanks for adding to the problem.

YOU UTTER MOTHER FUCKING NIMROD! That comic isn’t about me as an artist being superior (and for the record I’m not superior). It’s about how the quality of an artists work is based off their skills, not the tools they use.

People assume that if you buy the $300 pack of colored pencils you will immediately become a better artist, BUT THAT IS NOT THE CASE.

That comic is simply pointing out that just because you have the best tools/supplies, does not mean you’re going to immediately be a fantastic artist.

So, no, I’m not adding to the problem you overly sensitive twat, I’m sharing a comic that speaks a hard truth every artist (including myself) had to/has to learn.

Good fucking day.

This is the comic we’re referring to.

Who's your favorite Disney princess and why?

First ones my girl Mulan. I admire all that she stands for and her take-no-shit attitude. Being a feminist and someone who believes gender roles are overrated and not welcome in my culture, Mulan really represents the passion and fire I find within myself (whoa that sounded cheesy). Plus, she’s freaking badass and kinda dorky and just gah

Other one is this gorgeous girly right below here. Now, lets be honest, Aurora is hands down one of the most useless princesses in animation and she says the least lines in her movie of all the Disney princesses. But asthetically I can’t get over her design. The art style used for everything from her body to face to hair is just fantastic. Plus, she was the first Sleeping Beauty was my favorite Disney movie as a kid, I would watch it literally four times in a row.
