You're such an inspiration. Your OCs are so popular and you don't even try to pander to fandoms... I wish I was like you.

omigosh anon I don’t think it’s pandering to draw fanart, more so just people drawing what they enjoy. Lots of fanartists draw with such passion for their fandom AND I AM ALWAYS SO INSPIRED, IM LIKE I WANT TO LOVE A CHARACTER AS MUCH AS THEY DO!! I don’t draw fanart as much lately mostly because I prefer drawing my OCs to fandom things and tbh I’d draw my OCs even if no one liked them. I think I just haven’t rly found a series that’s made me RLY WANT TO DRAW since SNK? I used to draw SO MUCH SNK…this blog was supposed to be my fanart sideblog AND IM PRETTY SURE 50% of my followers here are from my SNK fandom days IM SORRY I JUST FELL OUT OF IT im pretty sure if I actually got into something else again though I’d start drawing more fanart than my OCs HAHA

I do think I’m rly lucky that people enjoy my OCs though!! It’s kinda hard to say why people might like a certain thing, but I do believe that if you love something very much and are willing to share your passion for it, people will gradually become interested in it too. I KNOW IT’S EASY FOR ME TO SAY, but honestly I started with very few notes on my OCs too, and I just kinda drew Fay a lot to the point where ppl are like why do u only draw this blue haired dude??? CAN U DRAW ANYTHING ELSE KEL??? omg I still remember it well I haven’t really changed LMFAO BUT ANYWAY draw what you want to draw anon!! DRAW WHAT YOU LOVE and I rly hope people will be able enjoy your OCs too!

Your blog is just so adorable. I love Jay and Deacon together. They both deserve to be the happiest couple in the Commonwealth. ♥

Oh my gosh anon, this is so sweet, thank you so much! <3 ^u^

I couldn’t think of anything very clever/relevant to scribble as a response but here’s silliness instead:

(because you know Deacon’s fear of heights? You can laugh but Jay tries. He just isn’t the cleverest with words. xD)

I’ve gotten some concern as to where I’ve gone and why I’ve stopped posting and shiz

I have come to tell you that I’ve been stuck playing Pokemon Uranium.
you can all blame G-Mod for my absence since he was the one who brought it to my attention.  (no don’t, he awesome! D:)

I’m in the process of achieving my dream and becoming the next Chris Pratt.  it’s hard though.  my attention span and work schedule aren’t exactly working with me.

so!

I decided to draw mod adventuring through the game.  I’ve honestly wanted to do something like this for a while, and it’s been pretty exciting! The game’s pretty great and a fun change of pace from the normal pokemon beat (though I haven’t played a real pokemon game since black) and, while I wish it was more mobile, playing it on the computer has been fun.  I only wish it would run better on my 5-6 year old laptop. but it’s uh… hmm.. it’s gotten kinda serious lately so I’m taking a break.  

I guess I’ll take this time to post all the silly doodles I’ve collected.  so.. spoiler alert? I’ll try and tag it as best I can… gotta.. organize all these…

ahhh… good times.

Stages of not wanting to draw

Me: i don’t want to do traditional art; it takes too much time and the materials are hard to bring around

Also me: I don’t want to do digital art; it takes too much much more time than traditional art

Also also me: I don’t want to art it’s very stressful and takes a lot of time why do i even art idk

And let’s not forget: I don’t want to art; everyone else’s is better so why should i even bother

A Girl and Her Dragon - GIF 

“You’re the man from my dream.”
And what if I were? 
“…You kissed me.”
She felt her heart pound in her ears, flushing at the thought:
all she wanted to do was kiss him again.

A wild gif appears!! Featuring The Back of Kylo’s Head and glorious freckled shoulders. ( ಠ‿ಠ)  I cut up some of the dialogue to keep the post short, but you get the gist of it.

So he was human once, a very long time ago. We don’t know what happened yet. Kylo can appear in this form to Rey only in her dreams, according to @littlemanicmonday

That one scene from chapter 6 of The Big Three Alliance(¬ ‿ ¬) 

Jason hovered both his hands near Nico’s cheeks. “May I?”

Nico had no idea what the hands were for, but he nodded anyway.

Jason cupped his cheeks and began to gently wipe Nico’s tears using his thumbs. It surprised Nico, he definitely wasn’t expecting that. Jason’s hands were cold and it made him shudder when their skin made contact. But it was a good kind of cold and Nico decided he liked it. 

You have to understand how beautiful my draft for this piece was. Nikthan and I decided to draw the same scene! So here’s his version

Oh real mature, 1-S.

When it was revealed in @zarla-s’ handplates that Doctor Gaster was using the bros’ plates to track them, some folks wondered if they couldn’t just remove their hands to avoid detection when they escape. This comic shows why that would be a terrible idea, but let’s just handwave that for a minute and imagine what would happen if that plan actually worked. I just kept getting this scene in my head and cracking up so I had to draw it. Where did Sans even learn that gesture…

I’m sure if Papyrus had thought of it, he would’ve fashioned his hand into a thumbs up to show there’s no hard feelings. :P

Head shape tutorial!

A very quick guide that may make drawing the side profile a little less stressful!

1. Start with a simple circle with guidelines for the eye and front of the face

2. Decide who you’re drawing- do you want them to have a hard, square cut jaw

a softer jaw

or a sloping one? USE REFERENCES FOR THESE!! This is why drawing fanart/characters, even for professionals, comes as good practice, because you have someone to follow from to practice your differing face shapes. It’s also a good way to avoid same face syndrome!

3. The ear I think is bigger than people believe, at LEAST twice the size of the eye so don’t be afraid to make large ears! The bottom of the ear almost always lines up with the bottom of the nose and anywhere in the middle of the ear lines up with the eye AND the top of the nose. 

4. The head is rather wide, the skull jutting back quite far. I’ve found that the entire head shape can fit in a square. Not a rectangle but a PERFECT SQUARE so if you’re unsure about proportions try putting the face into a box to check. The eyes have depth as well, and can be pretty far back from the front of the face.

5. 

Just keep practicing with details! Draw males and females at different views, use references, and find what works for you!
