What-do-I-do-now WiP post of a Faust family portrait, in which we’ll gloss over age appearances then pretend they pass as parents & child (and cerberus pet).
Drawing characters between ages 35 and 60 is impossible.
Art TMI time!
I don’t think it’s possible to explain briefly how much, on any given drawing, I add something then take it away, add something, take it away, and repeat into eternity. After so long, I hit that point I have to make myself just walk away for at least a while or I’ll gO INSANE.
So, I guess that’s what I’m doing?
To be returned to one day, maybe??
There’s a difference between copying and using reference, so if he’s blatantly copying (tracing/copying exact compositions/styles/etc) then, uh, yeah, that’s shit. Call him out on it, I guess?
Advice from an abrasive asstwat.
I think photo reference is a fine resource. There’s a lot of arguments about whether photo refs are good for beginners & intermediates, but I’ve never really understood the argument against it; always seemed like some fluffy fine arts “live reference gives your piece life!” sorta junk. Look up anatomy tutorials, books, etc. Learn how the body works, practice, go between anatomy drawings and figure studies. Maybe there’s youtube videos for gestures and/or anatomy??? Seeing the movement of a body dose help so maybe look into that~
I’ve been in a sort of artistic drought for several months; desire but not a lot of drive, mental energy pretty low, etc. Working my way back into things ♥
Got a commission for stickers of the Borderlands 2 vault hunters :D
yey for commissions involving my interests ♥ ♥ ♥
They’re also for sale on our Etsy, as always.
Not very well. : /

Portraits of my & Coey’s characters for a witchy RP.
@closerinaway: I can only speak for myself in this case, as Coey churns out fully polished pieces at the rate a baby poops, but my portfolio is typically things I find finished enough/proud enough of to display and sell. I think the oldest one I make prints of is from 2009; so for me it’s a build up over time. I definitely work at a very slow pace, but since I focus so heavily on “serious work”, I’m typically able to update my portfolio semi-regularly. (I say typically because this year’s been sort of lacking since there’s been so much going on uhg.)
@faustiel: Probably not- portraits are usually small side projects I do just for funsies and to de-stress. Tho I love the show, I wouldn’t really have much of an personal inclination to draw portraits of the cast since their likeness is already evident in the series. I have taken commissions for stuff like that before, tho outside that I doubt it would happen.
@daughtk: We probably wouldn’t even need a KS to publish F&N, actually! Since printing black and white text pages is waaaayy cheaper than full colour artwork pages. The problem isn’t with funding it’s with evERYTHING ELSE BEFORE PUBLISHING DJKFHDSLK dlskjfhg
The 600-or-so pages we have at the moment need to be massively edited and made more cohesive. Large sections of it need to be completely overhauled. It’s a huge undertaking, one which I haven’t had the time or mental capacity to pick much at. I would LOVE to release it since so many people have expressed such an interest, we just have to get it ready first i’mma curl up under my desk n cry bai
I made paper dolls of my Kelley and Kenzie’s Asher . ___ .
These are so stupid
Ash’s the most darling baby ok
Oh boy I’ve been pretty overwhelmed with all the busy-ness going on here & haven’t really had the time or headspace to do a lot of serious work. Tho I’ve been chipping away at some older works in progress including this one.
Trying to figure out the balance of values now which I’m no good at. I really just like to draw, so once the drawing’s done my brain typically goes kaput.
Yeah! I’m still working on them off and on. The last few months have been real insane for me, so I’ve only been able to work on personal projects here and there, but I haven’t forgotten them and hopefully will have enough to post more soon, thanks~
Mads’ eyebrows are dumb . _____ .
IDK how I feel about the Hannibal sticker in general but WHATEVER I’M ALMOST OUT OF TIME
I made stickers for the Banquet Artbook’s KickStarter bonus rewards :D
I’d been wanting to make Hannibal stickers for a while but couldn’t give myself a good excuse to take the time but HELPING OUT THIS PROJECT WAS MORE THAN ENOUGH REASON FOR ME
There’s only for 4 more days so please look into the campaign and the project’s Tumblr! It’s not only a great collection of art and artists but also the extra funds after expenses and all will be going to charity!
I drew/inked/coloured them, and Coey helped with most the painting!
Oops made a butt-ton of colour variants you can download all of them here.
Not sure if I used Halloween as an excuse to draw monster girls or monster girls as and excuse to draw something for Halloween but I made a pattern of monster girls for Halloween.
Had this idea for a series of cutie Monster Misandresses/Man-Eaters (literal and figurative) with lil messages like “boys are dumb but tasty” so this is the first experiment with that. I might do more with the idea later, but no promises.
PS- their perfume bottle is filled with boy’s tears ♥
Been extraordinarily scatterbrained, so while I’ve been working a lot, I’ve been finishing nothing.
So here’s a finished thing.
@walkingsquid: Ummmm, I’m not sure. I’m pretty clingy about my original drawings, and I already know that (for the time being at least) I would not be willing to sell Mantra unless it was for a butt-ton of money. But if there’s any other pieces you’re interested in then feel free to ask about them and I’ll let you know my willingness to part with them. <3
@Anon1: Yes! We plan to continue producing anthologies for the foreseeable future and are coming up with ideas for next year’s theme(s)!
@Anon2: Please see my master post about commissions.
