I won’t get to it tonight, but as I’m going to have class tomorrow and will need SOMETHING to draw in my brand-new notebook, I feel like asking if anyone wants me to draw something for them. I’ll try to get them scanned in and stuff by the time I go home for winter break next week. :>
That said, what do you guys want?
So, the last time I bought a sketchbook was a little more than a year ago, at the beginning of my fall semester last year. It was nice little thing, 80 pages of 65lb paper and was perfectly sized for doodling in class with.
I just recently filled it up entirely and, since I draw on the back and front of every page, that’s 160 pages of drawings. I can look back and see the progress I’ve made since taking life drawing, how my style dived back into cartoony over the summer and is slowly becoming ever-so-slightly more realistic now that I’m paying actual attention to it again. I mean, I had this thing for an entire YEAR.
And now I bought a new one. Guess which one it is. XD
You can’t see most of the scratches, dings, and tears in the old one because of the light, but DAMN is it messed up. The cardboard cover is actually getting harder to open and close because it’s a little fragile, the edges are round rather than pointed from long wear and tear, and the binding is all bent out of shape. But I feel sad leaving it, because I’ve had it so long. The new one is so shiny and new and perfect, so totally not me.
I think I’m the only one who gets sentimental over getting a new sketchbook LOLOL ;;; But yes, time to start on this new one and make it mine!
Go to my ask box and tell me (in anon?) one strength and one weakness in my drawings.
I need the commentary. You’d be doing me a great favor!
ah why not
Bluh. My style sucks anyway, so anything you say negatively about it will be the truth. =D;;;
I’m trying to save up for tickets to see my significant other and the prices keep going up, by the time my paycheck comes in next Thursday I don’t think I’ll be able to afford it at all. Any bit helps, thanks for your time.
paypal email is…
Signal Boost! And to remind me to buy a commission. :>
Looking back on my art from much earlier this year, I’m kinda … IDK. For a while there I was trying to be more realistic, and that was a good thing; my art changed because of life drawing class, and some of what changed was good.
Yet none of that is in my style now. I feel like I fell back onto the easier, more cartoony style lately, and that really bothers me. ;_; I want a beautiful, realistic style like Julie, or something gorgeous and elegant like Lai, or something that’s as perfect mix of realism and cartoon like Puck’s.
TL;DR Shera needs to make her style more realistic. ;_;
World’s Most Stupid Art Thief *EDIT* has been caught! =D
*Edit* So this person’s account has been deleted. Success, guys. Thanks for the help. :)
Um … wow. So, randomly on dA and briefly going through the Homestuck fanart (I do this sometimes, please don’t judge me XD), and I come across this person’s gallery.
In case it’s not immediately obvious, none of that belongs to them. It’s like they went out of their way to choose art from some of the most popular Homestuck artists and just uploaded thumbnails of the pictures or something. But of course, dA is excruciatingly slow about dealing with art thieves- and furthermore, even if we do send links to the originals, there’s always the possibility that they won’t take them down. It’s happened before.
Of course, that doesn’t mean I’m just gonna sit back and do nothing. I’ve only found the originals of a few of these and can’t hunt for any more right now, because I really should get to homework. But these are the ones I have found.
Stolen Please help me find the original works for the rest of these so we can get this idiot to take these downs. Thanks. :>
Mod note: This one is kind of an attack! But I’m posting it anyway so we can laugh at how OP thinks they can dictate what creativity means and what other people can draw. Isn’t that cute?
i didnt know people still used comic sans
I can’t even take this seriously omg lmfao
So I don’t really care about the OP photo or anything but who is that Wrestler? He’s an attractive fellow.
so what the OP is saying here is that today I have the opportunity to piss off someone who hates it when artists goof around and have fun
awesome; will do
thanks for making me want to draw hamsteak OP
also sexy comic sans there
Good OP. Best idiot.
BRB, drawing Homestuck now. :>
Finances suck ass, so I’m taking a few more sketches if anyone wants to hire me.
Fifteen bucks for the first character, twenty for a pairing, various levels of color on the sketch depending on how much I can throw onto the piece and still justifiably call it a ‘sketch’. Two…
Okaaay, time to help out Luka again, though I may have to wait ‘til my paycheck comes in this week. :> The art is SO worth it.
Came across this little story on Livejournal when I was looking for inspiration for my creative writing class. Thanks to Toni’s blog, I remembered how much I loved this.

I … wow. I honestly shivered a little bit reading this, honestly. It’s not just the art that did it, although that’s gorgeous in and of itself. It’s the concept, the tone of voice, the perfect word choice and usage. I can’t tell you how perfect I feel this is. Just … the CONCEPT. And its execution. They’re both perfect, and sweetly melancholy, and beautiful.
It puts me in mind of Vellum and Ink, and also of Laitma’s stories. Especially Cras. Always Cras, always that angel-child chasing after the good ending that’ll never come. This feels like she could have written it.
