not batches

Getting paid to draw Opal is always a pleasure and this piece is no exception.

I was listening to a lot of Aimee Mann’s Lost in Space album while sketching initial ideas for this piece.  I wanted to capture that type of peaceful, wistful melancholy that I feel is present in Opal’s character that Aimee’s songs communicate really well.  

Opal is the combination of a gem that was originally from space and a gem that has hardly left Earth, those are some potentially messy feelings to come together.  A longing to leave and a desire to stay.  I also enjoy Pearl and Amethyst representing heaven and earth in way, given their temperaments and origins.  It’s something I feel the location of Giant Woman reflected.

I could yammer on about Opal for a while but alas.

I’ll most likely take on another commission batch around April.  If you’re interested, check out my commission post!

“What do you mean you can’t help me? You didn’t even try!”

“Did you even want to be here in the first place?

"You gotta tell me how you attract so many pretty people.”

“You all keep sneaking around and I feel so out of the loop. What’s going on?”

“Before I learned to speak their language, we communicated with vague hand signs.”

“I’ve tried, but I honestly think you’re a natural at this.”

this isnt comic related but hOW DO YOU ANSWER MULTIPLE QUESTIONS AT ONCE LIKE THAT???????????????

We have a system!

  • draft each ask individually
  • screenshot them all
  • batch process them in photoshop with a custom action
  • put processed ask images in tumblr text post
  • write in replies between the asks

It’s a long process, but we like how it turns out! We get this ask a lot, so I’ll add it to the FAQ.


Batch 2 of Commissions! 

Mostly Cross comm batch ho! A full-headshot batch was honestly overwhelming at first, but this turned out to be super fun to do! Sorry I haven;t been posting much beside comms lately asfahsas OTL I really want that switch, so…

Thanks for your support, guys!

@/Shun - Shun and Mira ( @/hailstorm’s ) (XCX ava)

@tigerkiddo - their ff character
@/Lion of the East - Riyo (OC)
@delta-machina - Esmeralda (XCX ava)
@singleahoge - Cross and Saori (XCX ava)

I’ve been mulling over what to do since I hit 3.5k followers on this website and I’ve never been too good at thanks you’s, so what better to do than to start making icons of my favorite otome boys? This is going to be regularly updated and yes, I’ll be semi-taking requests on who to icon… so here’s a batch of the boys from Samurai Love Ballad: Party!. Please like if you’re going to be saving/using them; I’d love to see you guys using them.


DRINK OF THE DAY: Micro-batch Whole Bean Cold Brew

This little secret is a barista favorite. After about six months of soaking the beans in cold water, this brewing method yields about half an ounce of deliciously smooth, robust cold brewed coffee! (Real coffee lovers drink it straight, without straining out the beans!) Get it while it’s hot! (or cold 😜😂😝)


Happy Friday everyone! Everyone excited for the weekend? CrystalAuctions are still live! Don’t miss out on this batch! Ends at 7pm pst 10pm est. lots of love 💜✨💜✨

Made with Instagram

1-4. Just doing my job here folks

5. Part of what precipitated Sand Bucket With Screed. I wasn’t fucking around when I said “by the dozens” and this is just the shit that hasn’t been blown off by the frequent 30mph gusts of wind we have being this close to lake erie- it’s often double the amount of butts pictured here, and this is just one corner of the overhang. These people are livestock

6. #nice

7. Okay maybe I wasn’t done yet, continuing important cloud work

8-10. Just yer local potions crone (lemon extract for baking and the rest of the batch of blood orange bitters- I promise that label isn’t crooked or off-center, just some photo angle fuckery)

One more week and I get to strain and bottle the limoncello!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The other day I made a post about making a pin inspired by the Supernatural character Arthur Ketch available for pre-order for those within the USA (I would make it international now but I want to see how the first 100 batch goes and if there’s a large demand for it outside of the states (shipping internationally is hella expensive, why?!)).

I’m making this post again because with David posting a close up photo of what the cross looked like, I went back to the drawing board and revised the cross to get what is above (the manufacturer will obviously clean up the lines better then I did). You honestly don’t even have to like Mr. Ketch to buy this, it’s a pretty nice cross without linking it to someone either way, ya know?

The pins would go for 10$ (shipping is included in price).

What do you guys think? 

(Please reblog to spread the word, I need 100 people to definitely want to buy this pin in order to set up a pre-order.)

Oikawa’s Predicament

A/N: Haikyuu!! (iwaoi, lee Oikawa) -  5. “Did…I…do something wrong?” - Also part of the speedwriting batch for my 1 year blog anniversary. Riiiip Oikawa!<3

Summary: Oikawa arrives late to his planned drinking night with his boyfriend and buddies. They don’t plan to let him go unpunished.

Word Count: 1307

“Hiya guys! What’s uuup?” Oikawa loudly entered the bar and joined his boyfriend Iwaizumi, and their double date- buddies Matsukawa and Hanamaki at the reserved table for their regular drink together. 

“Did…I…do something wrong” he asked when they didn’t say anything but just shared certain glances with each other. Oikawa looked at each of them and then at the glasses they already almost finished.

“Apart from being late one hour and 47 minutes, what did he do wrong guys?” Iwaizumi calmly asked Hanamaki and Matsukawa, and Oikawa eep’ed.

“What? We said at 9 right? I’m early!” he asked, looking at all of them in shock. Crap. Normally he and Iwaizumi went together since he’d usually stay at his place (which was the plan for tonight too), and they always went together so not he but Iwaizumi was the one to keep track of time. 

Today was a little bit different since he promised to buy Takeru dinner to celebrate the sweet boy passed his school tests. After that he’d join the rest, which he thought was at 9. Oops. So it was supposed to be at 7? Weeeird!

“I’m sorryyyy guys!” he whined when none of them replied but continued to drink from what most likely were their second or third drinks already, considering how long they had been here without him.

“He also never answers his phone. It’s annoying, why would he have a phone?” Matsukawa commented with a dramatic sigh.

“I feel sorry for Hajime,” Hanamaki said, and Iwaizumi even nodded at this.

“Guys! Iwa-chan, I’m sorry okay? I’ll buy you all drinks.” Oikawa tried to get the waiter’s attention while the others continued, without even addressing him directly.

“And now he tries to solve things with money. What a dick,” Matsukawa added, and Oikawa lunged over the table and tried to wave his hands in front of their faces to get their attention.

“Hellooo! I said I’m sorry! Iwa-chaaan!” Returning to Iwaizumi next to him, Oikawa whined and grabbed his arm, pulling at him like a little kid.

“Maybe we should just tickle him as a punishment for being an ass,” Iwaizumi said, and this made Oikawa let go of him immediately, tensing up as he let out one squeaky “eeeeheh!?”.

“Ah right, we know how ticklish he is right?” Hanamaki probed Matsukawa’s arm with his elbow, and they chuckled.

“Best reactions are when you tickle his tummy and sides. With squeezing moves,” Iwaizumi said, making the motions with his hands, and Oikawa cringed.

“No what about when you do this to his feet?” Hanamaki wiggled his fingers in the worst way possible, very clear for Oikawa to see, and he cringed more.

“Guys. I’m right here!” he whispered loudly, growing very uncomfortable with where this was going.

“Don’t forget his back. I’d do thiiis and that..” Matsukawa joined in tickling the air, showing how he would often scribble his fingers all over Oikawa’s back, and Oikawa could almost feel their fingers already.

The first batch of yoi keychains are finally released i am so excited to receive them!!
@the people who ordered merch with me let’s pop some bottles 👌👌👌👌👌👌

I am all for proactive conversation and debate, viewing different sides of the coin, so to speak, but please keep your hateful condescending misinformed bullshit to yourself. There is a difference between asking about something you do not know much about and using Google to defend a point that you had zero place to be trying to make. There are bad batches in any group that you see but using them to define the entire subject is literally what people all over the world have been protesting against lately, it’s the same concept that that government is trying to legislate as ammo to be whiny little bitches. Don’t fall into that close minded crowd, open your head and heart to those around you, try to ask questions of those that are in the community that you’re scrutinizing, and get some experience under your belt before you go popping off. You don’t KNOW, so learn and discover instead.

Hey I have a question; I really like soup lol but canned soup isn't exactly healthy... lol I'm vegetarian, so my question is do you know any good healthy soup brands I could buy at the store maybe?

No, sorry, because I always make my own soup! If you’re looking to buy, look for soups low in sodium (no added sodium is generally a good idea, that’s one of the biggest problems with store-bought soups) and low in saturated and trans fats. There are plenty of healthy soup recipes online if you want to try making some, I like to make big batches and freeze some of it for later. I hope that helped somewhat~
