Pinned toot

Now that I'm a bit more settled time for !

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 ( 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

I picked up a couple of old second hand books over the weekend to use for craft purposes (sacrilege, I know) and I found a page in one that will definitely need to be used for something :P

I'm a monger. i just love to mong. fish? monged. cheese? monged. i will mong anything under the sun

First day of NaNo: 2933 words! Not too shabby for a day when I was busy doing other stuff. Now I just need to keep up the momentum...

It's #NaNoWriMo again! Every November we open up some of our Pro features made especially for novel writing. That includes:

- A higher character limit — all posts have the Pro limit of 500,000 characters
- The Novel blog format — this puts your blog's posts in chronological order, so each one can be a chapter that'll be read in-order
- A dedicated NaNoWriMo blog — a free additional blog just for your novel this month. Let me know if you'd like one!

Gonna be vaguely doing NaNo this year, alongside trying to finish my darn comic and various other things! I'm always both amused and slightly horrified whenever I log into the NaNoWriMo website because my account there is TWELVE YEARS OLD now and I don't feel old enough to have a twelve year old account on anything :|

Made a mixed paper journal out of a cereal box because I am the procrastination queen. It has a mixture of watercolour paper, plain, lined and coloured stuff dug up from various boxes and drawers :P


testing some cotton paper. Probably won't get more of it but it's fun to play around with!

I have spent two weeks managing to do everything except the comic stuff I need to be doiiing D8< I want to paaaint but I need to do my lines!!

CW for artistic nudity! Tried out my fancy new watercolour block and painting on it is a TREAT. Might not be 100% finished with this but it's looking pretty right now and I was excited so here!

20GB+ of completely free reference photos. Use 'em for commercial or personal projects. No attribution required.

I fear I may be some kind of art shop vulture. Discovered a cool independent art supplies shop near me! Went onto it's FB page and OH it's closing down :| Still, picked up some nice 100% cotton paper at a decent price, including my first proper watercolour block, and a cute square sketchbook. It's a pity though, it seemed like a really nice little shop :(

This is one of those 'did I draw that??' type pictures, haha. I got a replacement watercolour sketchbook for landscape stuff, which means I can now use my Moleskine one for other things. I think I prefer it for ink, it doesn't cope so well with the amount of water I use while painting...
