Pinned toot

This year I got to work with plenty of amazing people and get a few steps closer to where I want to be creatively. I am insanely grateful for all the support and I hope we can make 2019 ROCK! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ’—

๐Ÿ‚ The Fall ๐Ÿ‚

Finally got some time to sit down and paint a portrait just for myself. I've been really inspired by the gorgeous fall weather, and the notions of the upcoming dreariness and rain...

โœจ EMOTE TUTORIAL โœจ

Hiii, it's finally done! I wrote a tutorial on how I go about creating emotes and other types of small art, including some things to think about, tips and tricks, and a "cheat sheet" for Discord, Twitch, and Mixer emote sizes and chat colours.

I hope you like it! Please let me know if you have any feedback, I'd love to improve this tutorial if I can!

I've been greeted by this lovely message most mornings. It's fine after a reboot but still. I don't need a dead hard disk, so I think I'll have to do some serious laptop maintenance when I'm done with the stuff I owe people.

(I'm open for help with this if anyone has tips... I plan on having my laptop cleaned because it's been over a year, and I'm also going to reinstall Windows.)

I walked like 11km today because it was the Feebas event in Pokemon Go and it focused on walking. I'm just happy the weather was nice - well, nice for January anyway, it was cloudy but not very cold. Meanwhile the in-game showed snow and I got some extra snow pokemon, lol.

I look forward to warmer weather because I enjoy just walking around for long periods of time, and the game makes it a lot more fun.

As you go into the weekend, make sure to be kind to yourself. Talk up your own accomplishments, no matter how small, and forgive yourself for not accomplishing as much as you wanted. Treat yourself like you would your best friend!

You've all done your best this week, and that means you've succeeded, in my book. You've made it to the weekend! Pat yourselves on the back! :louis_toots_too:

And if it's not your weekend yet: pat yourself on the back anyway. You deserve it. :bowie_stardust:

Musings on 2009 art Show more

I'll probably never stop having some variant of this running through my head. Is it a confidence thing? Self-revulsion?

I used a new cleaning product in my bathroom and I think I got light poisoning ๐Ÿ’€

I went to a drugstore today (DM) and I can't get over Catrice holo lipsticks and lip glosses. They're so expensive tho I can't justify buying any of it since I don't wear makeup often these days. But I want to splat my face into a jar of glitter...

Also they got e.l.f. stuff recently but it's expensive? Wtf I used to order their stuff online because it was cheaper than anything in local stores. ๐Ÿ™„

Ok so why did nobody tell me how good Allie X's music is...? It's SO GOOD.

Also, I found the first music obsession of 2019... Neon Ocean by New Dialogue. They're a new band so they only have two songs out, but this one makes me hopeful!

Iโ€™m excited to make a big announcement!

I am launching a Patreon, where you can support my work and see more of it. The official launch will be January 23, one week from today!

If you like what I do and want to support me so I can keep creating, and if you want exclusive access to my art and process, youโ€™ll want to check this out!

The Patreon page will also be a community for learning and inspiration through a private Discord Server. Anyone will be able to ask me about my process there.

2009 vs 2019 Show more

I started doing weekly spreads/to-do's similar to bulletjournal in my normal diary and it seems to be helping with staying organized and planning things. I can already see the ways to improve it next week. :D

I think it's time to start looking at what's written in the bujo spreads I see everywhere instead of just going "Oh, what a pretty design!" :P

(Mine is not ~designed~ at all, it's just quick freehand squares drawn with a ballpoint pen...)

A friend of mine asked for resources for her to study human anatomy, and I thought maybe I'd share the links here, too!

The thread will be a few toots long, so I'll put them under a CW. ^^

So here we go! Art anatomy/life drawing references ahoy! :bob_ross:

I really like the heart where you can encourage the troops! The way my character says "I believe in you" is so sweet. And I died at the book club joke. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Lots of really neat dialogue clips in this one.

[, no spoilers] Finished the latest episode and, once more, really liked the story. This season was some of ANet's finest work so far. The new map & the sound update made for a great experience too, it's very pleasant to explore and just talk to NPCs and follow the events.

Back to after the long break. Everyone recommended here is kind, helpful and interesting :)

@WandelStock - hiker and photographer of the German countryside
@Owl_Ask - comic and character artist. Lots of ink.
@AesAthena - Illustrator, books and more
@he_xie - fantasy/dark fantasy artist
@averybee - character artist with lots of color
@PalmerAnimates - artist and animator with a teaching spirit
@strawberry - artist of lots of cool things, including creatures.

This photo of Christina Aguilera is the most 00s thing I've seen in a while

๐Ÿ’ช During Day 4 of Yoga with Adriene's "Dedicate" challenge, I found a pose that does WONDERS to the pain in my right arm.

It's an extended child's pose with the arms reaching to one side (left to stretch the right side and vice versa). I can feel the pain from my scapula to the tips of my fingers, and this pose really helps stretch it out. Seems to work way better than any standing stretch I've tried.

Perhaps it can be helpful to someone!

:bob_ross: I've been trying to juggle several art pieces at once - something that I never do, as I tend to zone in on one thing and go at it until it's finished - and the most challenging part is switching the stages/styles. Like, right now I really just want to do pencil drawings all day, and digital painting sounds so unappealing.

I think I have trouble switching mindsets from one thing to another in general, anyway. Something I should probably look into.
