these are so fun to colour

a torso/base colour commission for @freshbrainss​, who requested leia swooping in to kick jabba’s ass and whisk oola away on an adventure!! another super fun commission after my own gay little heart, thanks so much for commissioning me not once, but twice with two wonderful femslash prompts!! i had a ton of fun!

(commission info)

i hate the mentality of some popular artists on youtube/tumblr that ‘if you want to call yourself an artist you had better draw every day and always strive to improve and never experiment ‘for fun’ and take a class on colour theory and anatomy and proportion and cartooning and and and’ with like zero regard for peoples’ financial situations or physical abilities?? 

like there’s a very elitist, exclusionary mindset with some artists where they just insist on all of these hurdles that aren’t necessarily accessible and just completely step all over any artist who draws for fun

like it’s largely the reason why it took me so long to call myself an artist? i can’t afford fancy supplies, i don’t have the time for art classes (i’m a chemist ffs), i’m not interested in sitting down with an 8-hour online course about colour theory like i just want to draw what i want and not feel bad for not putting in more effort when i’m just trying to have fun and make others happy

hi! i’ve been hanging around studyblr for a while, but too scared to talk to people, but i’m taking the plunge and doing an introduction thingy c:

so, hey, my names Becca, but call me Robin. I’m 17, english, and I am currently studying A Level Chemistry, Geology and Classical Civilisations. I have offers to study Geology at university in september.

some fun facts;

that’s me! I’d love to talk to you all, so send me a message or something xx

So I don’t usually get involved in things like this but I liked the idea of it too much to pass up the chance to join in, @ciryes and @turbobyakuren started a youkai-sona week and so here’s my contribution, unfortunately I’m not good at naming my creations so she will go unnamed however she is a crow tengu with the power to swap the colours of different people and objects (however she is unable to change her own colours or the colours of anything she is wearing), despite her ability being great for causing trouble she is generally well mannered around humans as she is more concerned with her artwork than anything else, however there isn’t much demand for paintings and her ability often ends up getting her into trouble anyway. I partially based her design off of a story of how the crow and peacock gave each other their colours and while the crow painted the peacock as beautifully as it could the spiteful peacock didn’t want to be upstaged and painted the crow pure black.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
