Requests for "Not Cute" Things
Thinking about doing “kawaii” versions of things that aren’t usually “kawaii.” I think things are cute that aren’t really cute. And not just like “OMG THAT DOG IS SO UGLY IT’S CUTE” - like they designed these things to be weird or disturbing and not cute.. REQUEST SOMETHING THAT’S NOT CUTE AND I’LL MAKE IT CUTE. Examples: Demonic...
I realize original sources getting lost amidst lots of reblogging can be an issue on Tumblr, but I can’t seem to reblog people’s reblogs and keep their comment/response. :\ Their text gets removed, so all I have left is the content of whatever they reblogged. Sometimes I want to build on something someone else said! Anyone know why this happens/how to prevent it? (EDIT in response to...
Need Photoshop CS6/Wacom Intuos4 Help Still!
On top of my weird double click issues in Illustrator (CS5 + CS6), I’m also having problems in Photoshop CS6 (and not just with double clicking the layers, which was a problem in CS5 as well.) Photoshop CS6 will randomly go unresponsive for a few seconds when I switch to the brush tool using my Wacom pen (haven’t noticed that it happens any other time.) I’m also now having...
Mouth T-Shirts →
kathryndnews: I added Mouths t-shirts to my RedBubble! Big thanks to Neekko for the suggestion! Due to the limitations of the CMYK palette and my not wanting to halftone, I couldn’t get their original yellow teeth to look acceptable, so I just made them brush their teeth. Also, please note that the shirts are not available on their original artwork color backgrounds - I had to work with what...
Tattoos and Copyright Law
Question: Does Fair Use Law apply to tattoos of copyrighted material, or only tattoos of other artist’s interpretations of copyrighted material? WARNING: Incoming long ass post! [[MORE]] Let’s talk about the artwork itself first. Believe it or not, the copyright of the derivative work is often the most controversial part of this issue. If the subject matter is not product/property...
Wacom Intuos4 Double Click Mac Issue
I’ve probably posted about this before but it keeps coming up! And I still haven’t found an answer! I’ve tried the Wacom forums and everything. I know I can’t be the only one having this problem because it’s definitely drivers-related. My Wacom Intuos4 will double click when single clicking, all the time. I have to hold the click down longer to prevent it (which...
I was for real about taking art requests. :B I want something not-so-serious to work on for a little bit. COME ON YOU GUYS FREE ART. Won’t Draw: Samus (unless I get to make it silly), large groups of anime characters I’ve never heard of

teapirate: spicyshimmy: i have a rotating desktop theme and this is what it was on when i stopped to do the meme. my desktop is a mess okay. a mess. (art is by cuddlingthecthulhu!) The most terribly boring desktops are mine. There’s generally nothing on them (I didn’t… DON’T JUDGE ME. Under ordinary circumstances I would have a nice, clean desktop (gods know I hate a...
Mini-Rant for Great Justice
You can tell I’m out of school and have lots of time to think because I’ve been posting more text and unrelated stuff on my Tumblr. Anyway, this one is sorta career-related. I’m kind of annoyed. When I had my senior show, I had a ton of people asking if I was selling prints of my Constellation series. I told them they would be available online after the show and that my website...

Why do people follow you on Tumblr? →
neekko: crispyfishsticks: coffeeandteal: moonspots: People follow moonspots because he/she is a freeloader and draws well. Thank you for the backwards compliment, automated machine. People follow Laceddog because he/she is hot and likes sleeping naked. well this is awkward People follow crispyfishsticks because he/she is a bishoujo and has a pillow fetish. ……. People follow...
A bit of rage.
Incoming WoW-geekiness Alert: I don’t like that the female Pandaren has that “Swedish” (totally Japanese) dance. Here’s a side by side with Caramelldansen if you don’t know what I’m talking about. Pandas are Chinese. I feel like it’s a little disrespectful to give them a “Japanese” dance. And it only further confuses dumb Americans....
Yay! :3 Magna Cum Laude, too. And I was mentioned in the senior speaker’s speech! Kind of bittersweet. I’ll miss my professors (especially Ken and Matt) and seeing my fellow illustrators almost every day. I’m already hurting for my studio space. I kind of feel like I didn’t get to say goodbye to a lot of people, but my goodbye was at my thesis committee review, I think. I...
My Top 10 Video Games
I felt like it. >C In no particular order: - Shadow of the Colossus (HNNG <3 Eff them controls though, amirite?) - Ratchet and Clank (I don’t know if I could pick one. Crack in Time had an interesting storyline/format and the R.Y.N.O. V, but Up Your Arsenal was really fantastic.) - Pokemon (The GBA remakes + Ruby/Sapphire. The DS feels a little sterile sometimes, and the original GBC...

neekko: coelasquid: nekoama: rosalarian: duessa: Me, constantly. I do this so much. It’s terrible. This is why I always set my sketch layer to like 10% opacity before I start inking. I want to meet whoever it was at Adobe that thought it was a good idea to make “undo” send you back to the previous layer and kick them in the teeth. Korra’s expression here doesn’t even amount to...
Hey guys real quick.
The reason you haven’t seen any sketches for awhile is because I’m graduating in like less than a week. I had a senior show two weeks ago, and then I had to get my studio cleaned out and drink way too much. (lol…huu) And I graduate on Saturday! omgwhatdidijustsay On a more personal note, I’ve just been trying to chill out and get through these last couple weeks without my...
Reblog if you have met someone online that you...
neekko: It’s kinda scary that some of the cool kids I’ve met online actually live in this area. We need to hang out more, guys. Honestly when I started college and had to stop being an Internet junkie all day every day, I never thought I’d have internet friends again. But here I am with friends on both ends of the continental US. And all artists of some kind, I think. I feel like I...
