An update to show I haven’t forgotten
I still owe some of you commissions! It’s been a slow process getting through them while having a full time job and life things happen. I do truly apologize for that.
Had I known I would be getting a job so soon after opening commissions, I would have probably limited my slots. I was just unemployed and low on cash and figured I’d bust out a bunch of art for you lovely people who commissioned me!
You are all still lovely and I hope you find your art works worth the wait! As I make my way down my list, I’ve been emailing people in regards to if they still want their commissions. If you do, great! If you don’t, we can work out it all out, no problem!
I just wanted to let you all simultaneously know that I am still working through them. That’s why there haven’t been any doodles or anything to post up here! When I’ve been arting, it’s been for you. So I hope you can hang in there just a while longer!
Ok ONE festive drawing today (because I am at work and gotta work)!
For me, valentine’s day has always been about anyone you hold dear! From pals to family to partners! Not only that but I file this holiday under “Hallmark holidays,” so I don’t’ take it very seriously… it’s just a goofy cutsey sugary day!
So here’s a dumb little Flash drawing in the margin of my work file!
PS drawing in Flash is dumb.
arineat asked: Heya! So, your modern-day gorgon drawing happened across my dash and I think it is absolutely fantastic! So much so, that I can't stop thinking about the world she might live in and what other modern-day mythical creatures she might interact with. Is she an original character with a background, or did you just draw her as a stand alone piece? If someone (by which I mean me xD) were inspired to write a fic around her, would you object?
Holy cow! You want to write something about her?? I’m so honored!
The piece originated from a friend’s prompt of drawing a mythological persona, so it’s a stand alone drawing. However! That doesn’t mean she can’t become her own character in some fantastical world (I have definitely thought about it)! If you do end up writing a story, I would absolutely love to see it when you’re done!
Modern day gorgon anyone?
Obviously since it’s currently winter, the snakes would need to stay cozy too. Either they can stay curled up under my hat or sport their own winter gear. On a regular basis they’d help me remember the little things, you know, keys… charlie card… the essentials (anything they could pick up on their own).
Fun fact, they’d all get party hats for birthdays too.
khunja asked: What pens and brush pens did you use for that lolita inspired robot? The colors are so vibrant!
I used Sakura pens for the inking (they come in nibs and brushes)! They are my pen of choice, though I know other folks have different favorites.
Then I’m afraid I was a little sneaky with the coloring… it was done on the computer! It just has the texture of the paper behind it, so maybe that is what’s giving it a less digital look.
I’ve actually gotten a couple people asking about the colors on this pic… I’m sorry to disappoint! If you want vibrant colors traditionally though, I do recommend looking into “professional” markers (sounds silly), like Copics! They are sold in varying sized packs, and also individually! Maybe pick up a couple and try ‘em out!
