And the doodlin's done :D

Didn't quite get it to what I was imagining, but that's just how arting goes 😅 Plus, it's almost 4am and I've got a headache from bending over these two, so this little illustration is as done as it's ever gonna get...

Realizing that most of y'all probably don't know what toasted ravioli is and getting teary eyed

Can you guess which musical piece was composed by a human, and which by a computer?

I got 3/4.

Minnie Mouse pajamas? Minnie Mouse pajamas! Not going to lie, I'm tempted to buy a set of these.

Something I've noticed myself doing this year is matching a beverage to whatever I'm going through and drinking it each time I watch an episode.

Laid-Back Camp - hot chocolate
Evangelion - orange juice
Utena - pink lemonade
Avatar - water
Spice & Wolf - apple cider

This Bally Hi-Deal has been a nest at some point. The lightbulbs and solenoids make for a nice warm private space for mice to live. Pictures show the mechanism panel (the electromechanical computer that handles game logic) with nesting material like fluff and shredded paper. There was lots of poop in the cabinet too. I'm gonna strip it down and give it a scrub so that when I'm back inside this game fixing something else I'm not working in filth again.

i realized that i shouldn't depend on what other think i should draw.

for a while i was stuck with not being able to draw what i wanted. i came from a family that turned super conservative when i was 14. and suddenly dragons were of the devil some how.

but then i stopped giving a shit some time after i cut them out. and i dove right into drawing what i wanted. my skills in drawing dragons improved 10 fold. and they can't stop me

* I began prioritizing accurate VALUES (this Krita trick is very helpful: and EDGES ( )
* I began using THUMBNAILS (AKA very smoll pieces) to work out composition and/or and colors ahead of time.

(This is like the best tag ever in the .artverse!)

was reminded this morning about Adobe's horrible subscription model and wanted to mention the Affinity suite. i've been using their PS and Illustrator clones for most of this year and they're great.

$50 each, no subscription, and do almost everything the Adobe stuff does and some stuff it doesn't.

their InDesign clone is in free beta right now, too. oh, and they have ipad versions as well.

no affiliation, i'm just ecstatic there's a real alternative.


when my painting mentor told me every square inch of a painting needs to be interesting: no bland backgrounds

“I did it because I had too.”
“You had no choice?’
“No choice.”
“And you just kept going?”
“Yes. Till it was done.”

“So now what?”
“I don’t know. At first I missed them all.”
“The characters?”
“Yes. I knew them so well.”
“They were real for you?”
“Leaving them there felt like grief - at first.”
“And now?”
“Now I just feel empty.”

“But there’s always next year, right?”
“I can’t wait that long. I can’t! I have to start writing again...”
