  1. so my old art teacher told me he could make a slideshow for my presentation and I made the mistake of giving him my tegaki along with my actual portfolio, and he put up my crappiest 2011 era homestuck art, which is the literal opposite of what I wanted. but at the same time, it is incredibly funny.

    Like here’s this super involved oil painting i did. now heres this picture of gamzee holding a piece of pizza.

  3. anonymous: how dO you draw such a digital painting? (like for the class you’ll teach) can you make a step by step tutorial or something?

    to be honest, the class is going to be more like “and this how you draw on a computer!” [i throw confetti] than “here is a step by step on how to get this style.”

    That said, I like to start with big shapes and hone in on details when drawing from photos. I recommend fooling around with brushes. Especially weird ones. I wish I could link you the brush, but I just found it in the “wet media” brush folder on photoshop elements when I was fooling around with brushes; it’s the weird one which looks like a rake.

    I’m not going to do a full tutorial thing. I think its far more productive to just go out and draw a lot!

  7. lacasus said: what kind of sketchbook do you use?

    Hi!

    I mainly use these incredibly ugly 11x8.5  Utility sketchbooks. 144 pages of bound paper and very good for pens and light marker. don’t buy if you want to be able to remove your sketches, don’t buy for use with heavy mediums.

    I love these things, I’ve completed five and this morning I just went out and bought my sixth. I’m really looking forward to creating my customary cover collage to cover up the hideous monstrosity the publishers saddle this great sketchbook with (please look at the cover on the link, its hilarious)

    Ah yes, look at those beautiful blurry photographs of my last four sketchbooks. Classic.

    Detective Pony is now on AO3.

    105 pages of lighthearted pony fun, with a Dirk Strider twist.

    This revision is a tough, emotionally draining read. But it’s cathartic, in all the worst ways possible.
