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.

I tried making a blender donut today to start using 3D for future comic backgrounds... but the donut is gray in render? I tried removing the material and remaking it, but that did nothing. Ugh.
Anyone know why? Or am I going crazy? (The top right is the render window, I just took an easy screenshot.)

Time to read 60 pages about student assessment. :oof:
Anyone remember a particularly good (or bad) test/paper/assignment? I'd love to hear about it so I can learn for my future students!

The A in LGBTQIA+ stands for asexuality

Allies do not get to inject themselves into a marginalized demographic for virtue signaling purposes. Replacing the ace representation with "allies" is quite possibly the most backhanded action a so called ally could take

Some cloud studies. I'm working on studies now that I've got some time.
I took my own reference pictures this time, just stopping in place on morning runs when there were nice clouds.

Schools should be places where kids can get food for free

I've been doing face studies as warmups in the morning before I work on Cocoon.
Really liked this one from a few days ago.

You ever have a time... when you're supposed to go to class in a few hours but have no Zoom link or information from the professor???

I keep forgetting to post old art but like. Dragon form Solus? Dragon form solus.
I have so many other dragon art that I still need to finish and just take away from BEING a sketch. send help

Jumped back to master studies today. I've had a folder just waiting for me for a few months now.
First is a study of Castagneto's "Afternoon in Toulon"
Second is Spencer's "Across the Delaware."
Both have interesting reflection and water techniques that could merit a longer study.

Never thought my parents would like TikTok... but here they are, praising it. The world only gets stranger every day.

Oh boy I have an oral final exam in 20 minutes on zoom.
This is gonna be weird, isn't it?

Did some pencil sketching last weekend by just grabbing a random plant and did my best. We have too many plants.

Uhhh Clip Studio Paint is going to be on sale until the 23rd.

Dang it, there's a typo in the image description. The last bit should be:
The first character says, "I will win on my own. Leave me."
Gah, I spelled own wrong. Gah.
