nika responds to things

Hi! i'm trying to develop my own style, and i really like the way how you draw your mouths. Could you please do a tutorial about them?

oh boy, i actually had to sit down for a little bit and think about this because i have no idea how i draw mouths other than it happens and i like it

okay!

i.. hope that elucidates something for you

anonymous asked:

yooo nika do you have any webcomic suggestions so i have something to read when i'm not crying over sixty four? xx

i absolutely do! i’m fucking voracious about webcomics, so i’ll give you some of my favorites, in both story and artwork

lackadaisy - gangster cats running an underground speakeasy in prohibition era st. louis 

unsounded - the betailed daughter of a crime lord traverses the countryside with her pet zombie on a mission to reclaim the money her cousin owes

bffcomic - the life and times of a quarterback and a nerd trying to hold their unlikely friendship together

the meek - the adventures of an inexperienced young girl sent on a quest to save the world

paranatural - a webcomic about a group of superpowered middle schoolers fighting ghosts and spirits in their weird hometown

manly guys doing manly things - shenanigans in a temp agency for overly macho video game heroes and villains

string theory - mad science in an alternate future where the cuban missile crisis went terribly wrong and America is still stuck in a cold war

romantically apocalyptic - insanity in a post apocalyptic wasteland

princess princess - short and sweet webcomic about princesses saving other princesses

ava’s demon - about a girl haunted by a demon who’s goal is to make her life as miserable as possible

the less than epic adventures of tj and amal - the morning after amal calls off his arranged marriage, comes out to his conservative parents, gets disowned, and goes on one hell of a bender, he finds himself in a pact with an unlikely friend to make a roadtrip across the country

and because i can’t help but include them, even though both webcomics have been all but discontinued/put on permanent hiatus in the middle of their run, hanna is not a boy’s name and boxer hockey were huge inspirations for me in making my own webcomic, and are both worth the read regardless

happy reading!

Do you have tips on someone who is not the best at drawing people yet? I like to try to draw them kinda chibi, so its hard to find references and whatnot when you don't actually draw actual proportions :/

oh man dude, don’t give me that

you absolutely have no excuse to not be using reference. chibi or not, you need it. the only way to get better at drawing people is to actually draw people. honestly, my advice would be to draw a bunch of people as you see them from both life and reference first. i know its not fun, but its sure as hell necessary if you want to move forward

plus, once you’re a little familiar with the human body, its hella easy to translate into a more stylized form (chibi and whatnot)

another good thing to consider is that proportions can be tinkered with and adjusted to fit your style, the only thing that really matters is that you are at least consistent. you can get away with murder if you’re consistent. for example:

the little things are what counts. as long as your characters are proportionate within your style then you are absolutely fine

i know this is the same advice you’ll get from everyone, but theres no easy way around it: you just have to keep drawing

Tell me some facts about the bun plz bunny so cute

sure! 

VB is six months old, and she is about the size of a cat (she is LARGE for a mini-lop, thats for sure)

her favorite foods are mint leaves, basil, and blueberries :)

she also loves kale but i don’t like to feed it to her because it smells like garbage

she makes these really cute purring/teeth clicking sounds when she’s happy

she snores sometimes when she sleeps if she’s really comfortable

she lets me carry her around like a ragdoll, and she loves all sorts of attention

i’m teaching her commands at the moment (like “come here” and “go home”)

i have a harness for her and she went for her first walk outside yesterday!

Do you have any drawing advice?

BOY DO I 

1. TAKE BREAKS. DRAW FOR AN HOUR AND THEN TAKE A GODDAMN TWENTY MINUTE BREAK AND STRETCH OUT YOUR MUSCLES AND EAT A SNACK AND SHIT LIKE THAT

2. SIT UP STRAIGHT YOU FUCKING HEATHEN, YOUR POSTURE IS IMPORTANT

3. DRAW EVERY GODDAMN DAY. JUST DO IT. NO FUCKIN EXCUSES JUST DRAW SOMETHING ITS NOT THAT HARD

4. IF YOU DONT KNOW HOW TO DRAW SOMETHING, GO LOOK AT THAT SOMETHING. YOU HAVE THE INTERNET AT YOUR FINGERTIPS, NEVER GIVE ME THE EXCUSE OF oh well i dont have pictures of that thing BECAUSE FUCK YOU

5. ALSO YOUR FRIENDS/ROOMMATES/FAMILY MAKE GREAT REFERENCE, PLEASE UTILIZE THEM

6. STRETCH YOUR GODDAMN ARM

7. DRAW IN A MEDIA YOU REALLY ENJOY. IF YOURE LIKE well i hate charcoal but other peoples charcoal drawings look really sick DONT DRAW IN CHARCOAL. YOUR STUFF WILL ONLY COME OUT GOOD IF YOU ENJOY THE PROCESS OF MAKING IT

8. DONT BE AFRAID OF CRITICISM. SOME OF YOUR STUFF IS GONNA BE REALLY COOL, SOME OF ITS GONNA REALLY SUCK. JUST ROLL WITH IT

9. IN THE SAME VEIN, DON’T TRY TO WORK AGAINST YOUR NATURAL STYLE. IF YOU’RE KICKASS AT CARTOONS, DRAW CARTOONS! DONT FORCE YOURSELF TO DRAW REALISTICALLY OR CLASSICALLY OR WHATEVER IF IT JUST AIN’T COMIN’. LISTEN TO WHAT YOUR STYLE IS TELLING YOU, YOU DONT HAVE TO DRAW A CERTAIN WAY TO BE COOL AF

10. KEEP GOING. NEVER GIVE UP!! NEVER SURRENDER!!

Question: do girls prefer dick pics or pictures of sushi? I just texted a girl I like a pic of a huge plate of sushi from a restaurant I want to take her to, do you think I made the right call?

i can literally say from the bottom of my heart that no girl has ever preferred to get a dick pic in the history of all humanity, so i think you made the right call
