I’ll take this ask as an opportunity to do a little intro to this blog. Hey new followers! This is my art blog and I draw/post what I’m feelin’ at the moment but whether it’s fandom related or original, my focus is on clothes/fashion/style/costume etc. I usually have ongoing series of things, for example, the Princess Bubblegum piece on Tumblr Radar is part of series where I design PB outfits based on different kinds of gum (they’re here in my pb tag) and I’ll probably add to it down the line, and that’s kind how I operate. I have a society6 I have an about me for any other info. So there ya go. Hey!
I don’t have a smartphone or a tablet (like an ipad etc. obviously I have a graphics tablet) so I don’t think I’d be a helpful person for discussing doodling apps on those devices since I don’t use them. If you just mean what programs I use? I think this ask/answer might have what you’re looking for and this gif I made is to show my general process.
I want you to know you've changed my life and I'm going to dedicate everything I have to becoming a producer and creating 500 new fabulous shows and movies full of awesome diverse ladies in space. (and maybe on earth too but right now I want Space ladies.) I'm not even kidding after three years of switching random jobs I finally have a career goal and I'm applying to go back to college and if I succeed (and I will, I'm pretty hard headed) I will let you know. Keep being amazing!
Oh my gosh that’s so awesome, wow! It feels good to know there are hard headed people out there bringing a laser beam intensity to the goal of creating more visibility for women (all kinds of women!) in sci-fi. Let’s see more awesome diverse space ladies and gender identities all around and crush those who stand in your way. I will watch all of your 500 fabulous shows :)
I'm sorry if you have already answered this but how do you feel about people getting tattoos of your artwork?
I haven’t actually, and this is a good question. I’d be flattered if anyone liked something of mine enough to get it tattooed. My feelings are if a design is being utilized in a way that someone profits off of (in this case the tattoo artist) then the person who originally made the design should be compensated as well. The reality is a person could, say, get those oxford shoes tattooed on them without compensating me and I would never know about it. And that sucks, so I would hope if you love something enough to be tattooed on your body, you’d respect the person who created it by contacting them and paying them for the design work the tattoo artist won’t have to do.
I came back from lunch to an inbox full of sweethearts. Bless you! But don’t worry about me. I could not muster the energy to care about any sexist comments from man-children. If anything, I absorb power through their tears. I just wanted to spare you the horrors of the comment section. Honestly. Never ever read them.
I got a Bamboo Create with a 8.5x5.4 drawing area, which is larger than I’m used to. I had the Intuos 3, got it as a Christmas gift years and years ago. I loved it a lot and if I was in a position to easily drop $400 on a tablet, I’d get it again, but I wanted to work within a smaller budget.
We should have a moment of silence for my beloved drawing tablet. It took its last breath last night. It’s been with me a long time. It stuck with me through the “what the hell how do you draw on a tablet but look at a computer screen at the same time, do I need dark magic for this?!” phase and helped me doodle many a doodle.
I mean, dear anon, I’m not really an art blog dedicated to erotic poses but the human body is nothing to be ashamed of, and I wouldn’t want to leave you with that impression, and it’s super hot outside, so how about a man showin’ some butt, suggestively drinking a refreshing, citrus beverage? Sketched hastily and surreptitiously just for you, anonymous.
You may have noticed it’s been quiet around here for the past couple weeks and it’s about to get pretty much silent for the next two weeks. It’s all due to a really cool project I’m working on with a quickly looming due date. I’ll post more on it once it’s done, but I’m really excited to have the opportunity :) In the meantime, I’d love to get feedback from you lovely followers on what you’d like to see on this blog. I started it just as as secondary blog to post my art, but there’s a good lot of you following now and if there’s content aside from what I draw that you’d like to see from me, let me know!
With that being said, I’m gonna answer a handful of anons under the cut.
