Now on Behance! + Possible commissionsI've just created a Behance - right here.I might also be opening some cheap "sketch on postcard" commissions soon, within the price range of £6-£9/$10-$15. "Sketches? Postcards?", you ask? Maybe! Not going into details, but if you think you might be interested, I'd love it if you'd let me know in the comments, just so I have an estimate.Thanks, guys!
Something nice - Water in the SquareYears ago, I did this illustration -lolorrain has written a short fiction based on it, and it's lovely. You can read it here. Thank you, Amanda!

Daily Draw February...is over, and you can see my thread here! I can't believe I completely forgot to announce it here while it was still happening, I'm the worst PR for myself.

Flo vote + general updateI forgot to tell you guys, the vote for my Florence + The Machine submission is now open! It's actually going to close very soon, but hey, better late than never.

And I've been making an effort to draw when I commute, which is everyday, so yay! But yeah, life's pretty busy, I literally just managed to get a few minutes for myself and I should already be in bed. But I'm sure it will get better as I become more used to it.So yeah. Busy busy!
TimelineFor those of you who don't follow me on Tumblr and might be interested in such a thing, I made a post with drawings from way back until today. It's pretty cool to see one's evolution from 6 years old (1995) until now, if I may say so myself. The post is here.As usual, feel free to follow me there for more frequent updates - I've been doing a lot of sketches lately and won't upload everything here.Thanks, guys!

Stop hating your art and yourselfSo this is something that I've been bottling up for a while and I want to address it. Now, before you harp on me, I am guilty of this from time to time as well. However I want to open up the floor to this conversation.I try to stay kind and gentle in my conversations with people. However for this, forgive my blunt tone. I am giving people advice based on what worked for me and other professionals I've talked to. This advice is for ANYONE, but mostly visual mediums like drawing, paints, etc. Though if you stretch your mind a bit, it could apply to any medium.Also I KNOW not everyone wants to be a pro. This is about being a pro. It's about bettering your art. I have people always asking me about getting better and improving, and this is my advice to you all.A. Your art does NOT suck. For the love of the planet, PLEASE stop saying this. Your art may not be at the same level as someone else, maybe your family member, your friends, classmates or id
Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.If you don't know your sun sign, click here: http://www.astrology-online.com/persn.htmIf you don't know your moon sign, click here: http://www.lunarium.co.uk/moonsign/calculator.jspNext you need to add up the values of
The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
Tips on: How to make an original species?I got asked by a few people but I wrote out this response to jasper-chan's ask on my tumblr. since it's all written out I feel like it'd be at least somewhat appreciated to those who are curious of what I keep in mind while making an original speciesWARNING it's a little messy but if you are confused then feel free to ask me questions I'll do my best to answer properlyIn general I’d suggest to think "what physical characteristics should be involved with my species? and how can i make it unique?"for a species to be a species (especially closed species) there should be at least some distinctive physical trait that they're born with.imo it’s not a very good species if they can take off what would make them a species. for example, a group of kemonomimis that likes to wear a specific fashion is more of a culture than a species. I wouldn’t add their fashion into their main descrip
Facebook PageJust wanted to let you guys know, I created an artist page, so if you happen to be active over those parts and would be interested in a bit more content (like sketches and occasional free stuff, who knows) - head on over!Riiight here!
