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


Material Girl

She’s mastered the art of contouring and jiu jitsu and has all the strength of a chick who has ruined her winged eyeliner for the umpteenth time.

Yeah yeah I’ll go to bed now

Embarrassed to Ask. Is anyone interested in $1.00 Commissions?

Really not the kind of thing I wanted to bring up again. The plan was to hold off on this question until years from now when my work is worth the money. But life is kind of weird. It has a way of flipping your plans over no matter how embarrassing it may be to ask questions like this. I decided to do this thing right this time and actually ask if anyone is actually interested in this.


Boy am I gonna regret this in a few days…

So you see, I don’t really like putting all of my personal information and the like on this site. Nothing personal (because really I love you guys!) It’s just the way I was raised. I really don’t want to go into a big sob story or overly dramatic tale of “bawwwws” or “wahhhs,” so I’ll try to keep it as brief I possibly can. Things are rough here nowadays, and there’s nothing like an empty wallet full of moths to really drive that point home. Transportation is expensive, school is expensive, food is expensive, clothes, art supplies, vet visits, etc, etc, etc. I mean I really don’t have to tell anyone here that. You’re living in the world, so you get it. Anyway, I’m probably going about this all wrong again, but I just want to know if anyone is or is not interested in this before diving headfirst. Anywho, really sorry for posting this kind of thing. I’ll go back to your regularly scheduled sketches later on today. Thank you for your time.

That’s It!


“That’s it! That’s not what we have to do!”

“I don’t understand.”

“Don’t you see? We’re doing the same thing with no results! We don’t have to do it!”


“Just follow me and do everything I do! You’ll figure it out as we go along.”


Guess who got a brand new sketchbook?

A few years ago I had an idea for a Kingdom Hearts fanfic involving Xion, Sora, and nonDisney characters. Amazingly enough, I don’t hate the idea and would like to do something with it one day. 1:

This was more difficult than it should have been, but was still fun to do. I almost never draw people from the sides, crouching, or on top of something, so this was a fun little challenge. Sora could have looked a little better, and I missed a few aspects of his design, but other than that, I think he looks great.

Xion’s color pallete came from this. Since Sora’s design was originally based on Mickey Mouse, Xion’s outfit should look a famous nonDisney character. Originally I thought of Ann Marie from All Dogs go to Heaven, but that would have made her colors too similar to Sora’s (and now that I think about it, that might not have been too bad.) In the end I went with Tanya Mousekewitz’s pastel color variant. It makes her standout more.


On an unrelated note it’s raining like crazy outside. I went to open the door for my mom and I think I drowned. Stay indoors, everybody.

This is a Test of the Emergency Sorrel System

Had this been a real emergency Sorrel would not have used such a silly title.

Someone was nice enough to point out that I was taking pictures of my sketchbook the wrong way. Another was nice enough to tell me how to do it. My professor was nice enough to show the entire class how to properly color in photoshop. I was nice enough to…well actually I can’t think of anything. I just really wanted to keep the flow going.


So I tried to test all these methods out on this test sketch thing. Other than her-stiff-as-all-Hades legs I’d say this was a success. The colors came out nicely, and the left hand actually looks like a hand this time! The outfit was my friend’s idea. She’s great at coming up with outfits.


Anywho, enjoy this thing. : >
