Behind the Scenes: ArtRage Ink Sketch

I have gotten TONS of asks wanting to know how I sketch, which program I use, and how to draw digitally. I’m far from an expert, but I figured it would be fun to show you step by step how I sometimes draw. I use a Wacom tablet and the ArtRage program, a poor man’s Photoshop, and this is my go to form of drawing in ten steps.

Today, I’ll be drawing for you the person who is the most requested character in my inbox… Tessa Gray!

sorry I’ve only been posting boring things about me failing at being a grown up so here have some doodles of another Fox Song character

I actually finished the first FS book ages ago so if this print for TPoH works out I might try getting that done too

anyway this is Bertie, he doesn’t appear in the first book but that’s probably because he needs his own, so I will have to start working on that too

Sometimes you just have to sit down and cut out teeny pieces of paper.

And then glue them together into the shape of Jake English being concerned over his inevitable transformation into a time traveling demon. And broken spectacles.

Thought about cutting out the letters ‘oh bollocks,’ but then I realized I was doing that thing where I was crazy again, so I stopped.

Yeah no I’m basically beyond help now, you should all just

let me


i saw @officialrapunzelfitzherbert do this and I wanted to hop on that train, so here’s some of my favorite things from October!

1. Christmas shopping! Look-I know that October is early to do shopping, but I work retail and I don’t have time to do it during actual holiday. And it’s actually been kind of fun to do when I’m not stressed out and on a time crunch.

2. Hot coffee! We’re finally getting into weather chilly enough to enjoy hot drinks without dying from heat. And it’s nearing the end of the semester, so my drink of choice has been coffee more often than not lately.

3. Sweater weather! Guys, I love sweaters so much.

4. Cat naps! My cat has finally decided that he likes me and enjoys taking naps with me (yknow, 2 years after adoption but whatever)

5. Mountains! If you don’t live in Colorado, I’m sorry. Bc the mountains have been A++++ recently

6. Yuri!!! On Ice –It’s. So. Very. Gay. Also the animation is beautiful.
