  3. We’ve been in this house for 10 months, and today I finally hung something on my wall.  It is a picture of a giant-robot monkey destroying a cruise ship. Now this house is truly home.

  13. What makes it more stiff/less dynamic for you?

    when i draw digitally I have a tendency to overcorrect lines. like, I feel like I lose the fluidity I would have if I were drawing with a ballpoint or something. and if I’m drawing in my sketchbook I don’t care as much about getting things right so I get more dynamic and interesting results.

  15. Anonymous said: Oh my gosh can you tell us about your mycologists story? Your character is so cute and also plants!

    Thank you! well, right now its mainly just a collection of thoughts that I’m pushing to evolve into a short webcomic. or maybe TWO WEBCOMICS??? I have no idea.

    The first story involves a kid name Aaron Webber and his all-encompassing obsession with mushrooms; the original theme explored unhealthy obsessions and leaned towards being surprisingly dark. The drawing I just posted is of Abby (can you say “too many ‘A’ names”? i am unstoppable), an older friend of Aaron’s who shares a passion for nature but with a lot more common sense. She may or may not have her own separate webcomic which would be longer, lighter, and involve the supernatural. 

    Here’s my mycologist tag, but there’s not a ton in it at the moment; the majority of drawings lie entombed in my sketchbooks :’^)

  17. just voicing some thoughts about my art processes out loud

    pro’s of digital art

    • undo button
    • any color is at your command
    • YOU CAN ANIMATE (and view it easily)
    • can’t get fingerprints all over it

    con’s of digital art

    • tendency towards stiff character poses
    • tendency to be less dynamic in general
    • short cuts are more available (filters, ect), which cheats you from getting a good understanding of colors
    • stuck at the computer; can’t work wherever I want
    • possibility of electricity going off  AND DESTROYING YOUR WORK
