Now that I'm a bit more settled time for #introductions !
Hi there! I'm Jess.
- I pretty much seem to collect art supplies at this point, but my first love is watercolour
- my current main project is a webcomic (igmbdh.thewebcomic.com) which was meant to be a month long test and has so far taken the whole of this year and is STILL NOT DONE
- most of the rest of my free time is spent playing videogames, especially MMOs (GW2, Wildstar, ESO, SWL) and nintendo stuff

Doing slightly better at remembering I have a pillowfort.io account to post on recently 👍
Whenever I'm colour adjusting a scan I turn the saturation all the way up just to see what it looks like and every time I'm tempted to keep it like that
I sure did need them tissues 👍 👍
Finally getting around to listening to the finale of the Balance arc of TAZ and this is the only podcast I need a supply of tissues on hand to listen to ;.; so good!!
Today I discovered that the newsagent/stationery/toyshop near me is closing down. Which is sad! But it meant I got to grab a giant watercolour pad for dirt cheap in the closing down sale, woo! It's the same type as I had when I was just starting out with watercolours and mostly did WoW art, so I decided it was time for a throwback in the form of my draenei shaman, Tenkha :D
I discovered recently that the paper in one of my homemade sketchbooks is really nice for using waterbased pens on so I've been playing around with those a whole bunch the last few days! This has a bit of alcohol marker thrown in there too.
While putting my budgie to bed we completed our usual script -
Me: Goodnight birdy-bird!
Apollo the budgie: Birdy-bird!
... and then I made the realisation that what I have as a pet is basically a pokemon in the style of the anime where their 'call' is just their own name :P
I bribed myself to finish my pages by buying Persona 5 (it worked)
