my own work :d

Adverbs aren’t evil; said isn’t dead
Please stop hitting the wall with your head

Active is grand but not always the best
Sometimes it’s passive that passes the test

Some write with style, others write plain
Let’s all agree that writing’s a pain

The ‘rules’ can be broken, twisted, or bent
All that matters is that you are content

Make your own story and write your own way
This has been a writer’s PSA

Done for a prompt from @theyarepure :)

I should have warned you that I cannot draw! I tried numerous methods of doing this and this one was my favourite, even though you wouldn’t be able to tell it was at pride for looking at it.

I had fun doing this prompt though, thank you!

Caroline’s Confession Corner: When I was little I always thought it was weird that Krispy Kreme didn’t have a human mascot so I would take the little hats they would hand out for free, wear it, and then talk to myself in the mirror as if I was their mascot, and give imaginary tours of the doughnut making process to the imaginary customers in my head.

I was fully ready and prepared for the day they would start casting local neighborhood children as the new adorable doughnut poster child.

spiderrealm  asked:

If you don't mind me asking, where did you learn to draw? I want to make a living from drawing (hopefully create my own comics) and there are so many youtube videos out there and tutorials, I don't know where to start. Did you teach yourself from tutorials or did you go to school? Your art is so amazing! I'm in love with your style! I don't want to copy your style, I just want to learn the basics and work that into my own style :D

Hi there! I was really touched that you would ask me this question so I wanted to give a thorough answer – I apologize in advance if it ends up being a little long.

I started drawing when I was in high school. In 2013, when I had already mostly established the way I approach art and my art style, I chose to go to art school. I didn’t enjoy it at all… ;; Following me leaving art school, I was scouted at a convention by an established video and mobile game based purely on the merit of my personal work - art I had never developed during school and was actively encouraged to discontinue by some of my teachers.

I think there’s a widely held misconception regarding art school which is that it guarantees you a job or a rise in skill level – it doesn’t. Some people have great results and feel great about their art school experience, but a large percentage of my friends did not have such a great experience. I would say that if you’re just looking to start out with art it would be best to build your fundamentals by yourself, and then make the decision as to whether or not you want to pursue post-secondary in art. This will strengthen your portfolio if you choose to apply and will give you some confidence in your abilities!

Personally, while tutorials can be very helpful, I wouldn’t recommend tutorials that teach you how to do something in a stylized way or in someone else’s style. Tutorials for things like light source understanding, perspective, colour theory, character silhouettes, anatomy structure, fabric shading etc can be great to take a look at! Avoid tutorials that encourage you to draw a figure or face exactly like someone else or tutorials that just show you how someone else approaches stylized painting – imo these will pigeonhole you into their style, using their shortcuts, and drawing with their mistakes.

If you’re looking to quickly improve, doing some gestures or going to a life drawing session can really help! I would recommend it. I went to a couple life drawing summer camps when I was in high school and saw a big improvement in how quickly I could put together human figures after just a week-long camp. Drawing real human figures is important because it helps you remember how the human body is put together underneath the clothes we normally draw them in, and it also helps you get a feeling for a variety of different poses you can then try to incorporate into your personal art.

I hope this helps a little ;;;; I’m sorry if it doesn’t ;;; if you want to ask me any more questions regarding this I’d be happy to do so.

dnt reblog its just my 2 cents.. but, what the tizon family did was unacceptable. it shouldnt be hard to acknowledge that, my dad has domestic workers that he treats well, pays well, provides room for them, etc. the tizon family didn’t do that lmfao. what they did was keep a slave. a slave who didn’t get to see her family or have a room to herself. please there’s a difference between someone who is a live in nanny/maid and a slave so stop.. being disgusting and calling alex tizon brave.

part of my final was to draw a bunch of characters and their props, so I finally got around to rendering my Pillars of Eternity ranger and her wolf, Azil.

Plz ignore my huge signature on her foot. I felt like I had to put it there because of all the plagiarists in my class. =_=

Hey guys! Here’s a little recent something I started playing around with in acrylics, and I’ve got some exciting news to share. 

I was recently approached about doing a couple of art projects, and long story short, I will be spending a lot of my time over the next 6-8 months going gangbusters on creating illustrations for a couple of children’s books! I’m incredibly excited about this, both for the opportunity to pursue something I’ve dreamed of doing since I was a kid, and because I feel the stories I’ve been given to work on are beautiful and have a lot of fun potential in the art department. I’m not sure yet how much I’ll be able to post while the work is still in progress, but if things get a little quieter on my blog and social media for a while, just know that I’m hard at work, and I’m very excited to post all about it for you guys when I can. :D 

I am also still working on my own story and its accompanying art, and while taking on additional projects at this point necessarily means I will need to revamp some of my personal goals and timelines, Naddie and Eihrdah are not going anywhere, and I still fully intend to complete their story and to eventually release it online when the time is right. As it stands, based on my outline, I’m nearly to the halfway mark of what has turned into a very large first draft, and I’m planning to still make a “mini” Camp NaNoWriMo goal to hit 60k by the end of this month. 

I hope you are all doing well! Thanks so much to each of you who keeps up to any degree with my posts and my work.

Do you ever look back at your writing, even recent stuff like Masquerade and think "wow this chapter is so bad, the characterization is so off and the plot is inconsistent" idk I'm going through a weird slump in my writing? I'm reading my old chapters and I just feel like they're horrible? Idk if you or any of the other well-known writers go through this , but if you do it would be nice to know how you deal with it because I just feel like deleting everything right now lol

This is why I don’t go and look at my old stuff lmaooo. I would rather avoid it because that feelings sucks and I’d rather not cringe over my own work. For me it’s not characterisation or anything it’s just my own writing style in general that I can’t stand.

I know people say it’s always good to look back at your work and see how far you’ve come, I definitely agree with that, but for me I feel like it’s always better to look forward in your work and things you can change from there because what’s done is done with your old work and the only thing you can do now is improve and get better. 

So, the way I deal with it is just ignoring my old stuff pretty much haha, even Masquerade and some of my first yoi one shots. It’s probably not much help, but I speak for myself when I say I do go through it, sometimes I have those ‘whats the point?’ days where I wonder why I write at all because tbh writing is so hard. You’re allowed to feel down about it, just like you’re allowed to feel happy or excited about it, you can’t dictate your own feelings, only channel them as best you can. The thing you aren’t allowed to do, the thing you can control, is whether you give up or not. 

aa i’ve definitely got a long way to go before i even reach that level haha, but i’m really flattered :) thank you!!

EYYYYY !!! we’re a rare breed, gotta band together!! those three Es always get people, eh

as for your question, geez honestly i’m in a constant dilemma about that; i actually feel that a lot of the things i draw are so wildly different that i don’t have much of a strong personal voice. BUT i feel like style is a very arbitrary thing in general and i agree with many (more knowledgable) artists who have observed that style emerges naturally from all our influences and experiences in life & in art, and isn’t something we should worry about! i’d say that any cohesiveness in my own work, regardless of subject matter, simply comes about from my habits in drawing certain shapes, lines, etc, which have developed (and are still developing!) over many years of drawing. also, in my experience, other people can see patterns and consistency in someone else’s art better than the artist can themselves, which is another reason not to worry about it too much! it’ll take form organically and be honed through constant practice :)

ps. thank you for all the lovely messages & asks i’ve been receiving lately!! i’m sorry i’m so awful at responding promptly on tumblr but i’ve read (and thoroughly appreciate) them all and i’ll get around to all of them individually soon, i promise ♥♥ 

Birthday wishlist for June 16th!

Yours truly is turning 32 <3, and I figured that as I always put fanworks on my wishlists, it would only be sensible to post this a few weeks ahead!

1. Fics, fanart, podfic, any and all fannish creations :D!

Whether inspired by my own works or by my fave fandoms/pairings, anything of this sort is always good, and my squicks are easily avoidable <3. I don’t like noncon, bestiality, mixed generation incest, scat, and anything with police or similar authority figures excepting where the characters were police/authority figures in canon.

Fave fandoms of the moment: Alien: Covenant, Dishonored, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Good Omens, Gotham, Legacy of Kain, Nightmare Dork University, Prometheus, Rise of the Guardians, Rogue One, The Evil Within

Gen is great, pairings/moresomes are great, and the only times I’m fussy are that I only like Oswald from Gotham shipped with Jim or Ed, Credence from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them shipped with Newt and/or Tina, and Baze and Chirrut from Rogue One with each other. Baze and Chirrut shipped with each other and other people as part of a threesome/moresome is fine, but I need them to be together within said threesome/moresome if so. <3



(reblogs from my fics on here, or comments on AO3, or rec posts, anything and everything is lovely on this front. I’m easily excited)

3. Anything from my Amazon wishlist!

Which you can find a link to in my Tumblr sidebar <3.

There’s a whole bunch of stuff on there, from expensive mic equipment through to cheap DVDs and books, and I’ve set priorities on things to make life easier on that front too. But literally anything from that list would be a delight.

(excepting Prey and The Art of Dishonored 2, as I’ve asked mum to try and get them for me <3!)

4. Cards or letters or lengthy emails!

I love words, and having words in a format I can hold onto is even better! My email address is emeraldembers at gmail dot com, and you can also use that for requesting my postal address (though I’d appreciate knowing your Tumblr username/whatever other name I’d know you by first!) if you don’t have it already. One hint, if it’s not got 12 in the street name, you’ve got an old address.

5. Cold, hard cash :P!

Anything towards my Amsterdam meetup with the ragethirst crew would be lovely <3.

My paypal is emeraldembers at gmail dot com or, if you prefer, you can use the ko-fi link in my Tumblr sidebar <3!
