Pinned toot

🤗 Hi people! I'm Emily (she/her) and I draw queer fantasy comics. My current webcomic is Cocoon, updating with 5 pages on Saturday mornings! Sorcerers deal with new magic in their peaceful valley, and things go sideways. All over.

It might sound corny at first, but try listing just three things a day you're grateful for. You can do it in a cheap notebook and no one ever has to see it but you.

It's easy to get so wrapped up in an individual drawing or painting, that it can make or break you.

But for me, if I can zoom out enough to remember how far I've come, and also that this current piece is yet another step towards growing better as an artist, it can really help.

Whew! Trying to push my colors even more than usual here.
(now, could I just move here?)

Finished up my rocks! This was worth finishing, for sure. Lots of nifty stuff in the details.

Here's a little wip. I'm learning a lot by working out details in the rock surfaces, so I will continue tomorrow. Mostly just hacked out big shapes/values tonight.

Little Poitou is really happy for like two pages this week...

This week's pages are a form of release for me. Now that they're done, I hope I can move on fully. It's still imperfect but I let go a bit more every day.

Well, this became a thing!
Was just going to be a study... but I had too much fun (and too much time)

Here's tonight's study! Big rocks.
A little faster cause I gotta go eat dinner...

here we go... I have animal crossing. goodbye productivity. I thought it was coming tomorrow but it showed up today after lunch. I'll keep doing art cause I love it just as much...
(But seriously, why'd I get Rocket and Goose?)

Horse! Horse!
(man, there are some nice colors in the hair! or is it fur? let me know.)

thought I'd hate working on a boat... but it was ok. maybe because I focused on the scenery around it too.

Some nice clouds.
(digital painting is so much easier than when I get out the gouache tubes... I've got to work hard on both!)

Small Poitou needs to wash their hands before touching nice things, but things are looking up this week in Cocoon: comicsbyemily.com/cocoon/cocoo
