Still Alive!

mollytestJust busy busy busy!

Trying to decide on a color palette for Molly but can’t decide. She’s a sad shrinking violet who spent most of her childhood as a quiet people pleaser and now tries avoiding others due to her massive trust issues. Kinda leaning towards green because of that but if you have an opinion throw it at my face

Sometimes Birdies Get Sad

Sometimes birds get sad

Sometimes birds get very, very sad

Hi everyone. This was not the note I wanted to return on. I just felt really sad and decided to make a quick doodle. I promise that I’ll return to drawing happy, cutesy, colorful things. I just needed to get this out of my system.

Later.

I Hate This Doodle

I really, truly do.

It's so ugly.

It’s so ugly.

However, I felt like drawing something with black hair. You see, last year’s animated films had quite a few ravenhaired characters. I only got to see one of those movies (I had to read TVtropes articles to learn the plots and endings of some of the others), but that’s not important right now. What’s important is that last year taught me that I am drawn to characters with black hair. They seem to have the most adorable quirks and most amazing personalities (except for Pitch Black. I didn’t get to see Rise of the Guardians, but I can’t look at that character from a frontal view. He’s too creepy for me).

Ms. Kitty here might not have a personality as quirky as other black haired characters. In fact, she looks like the meanest, unfriendliest, most despicable thing I’ve ever drawn. The sketch was fun to make, and I had fun using a small lineart size. However, after a while, working on this became boring. The hair does not even look as nice as I thought it would.

So what did I learn from this? Black hair is hard to color, and sleeve fluff is fun to draw.

Maybe next time I should draw a character with pointy gap teeth. I like characters with pointy teeth and gap teeth.

See you later.

And then irony hit me like a ton of bricks!

My scanner stopped working. Until the problem is solved, play some Angry Birds and drink some sorrel while angry bird Sorrel refuses to enjoy the digital sketch… Did that make any sense?

Man, I hate having to sketch using the computer. It’s really irritating.

Well, I had two new sketches to show you. As luck would have it, as soon as I’m ready to scan, boom! The scanner stops working.  You see, this particular device has diva tantrums. One  moment it’s printing and scanning and making life easy. The next minute it goes on strike when I need to do something important.

Depending on how things go, I may or may not have my sketches posted by the end of this week. Just hope for the best.

…Also, does anyone still use Oekaki, or is it a thing of the past?
