I've decided to make this post public - it's just a collection of resources and cool things, especially for art. Because I trust LJ more than I trust my computer/browsers, so this is better than bookmarks, for me.

TONS OF LINKS )

This is a story all about how

a screenshot of what I'm doing right now in Inkscape, for RPGmaker. I decided to throw together a quick custom character + tileset to make sure I understand how it all works :D these images are going to be the 'walking'/swimming animation (um, it's a whale. I...I hope you can tell that ;A;) although I haven't finished the view from the back yet. Also since it's on a white background you can't really see the bubbles coming out of his spout...o well. Obvs this isn't the final actual character sheet, it's just a zoom-out of the inkscape page to about the size I think I'll make the final sprite.

I'm also working on the sequel to that first game I posted, for those of you who would be interested :D I've been sketching up character designs since I want to use at least all my own character sprites+face images for that (I'm not sure if I'll want to design my own tiles for it since for that I want to work on storybuilding and just making maps in general). There's going to be Sybil and Meloic, obvs, and a third character that will join the party (for the duration of the game) as well.


P.S. Sybil )

So Paige is getting an iPhone 4 for her next phone upgrade, and when I heard she was looking for a case for it online, my response was PSHSHHH I CAN DESIGN ONE FOR YOU.

And basically one thing led to another and now I have a RedBubble profile where you can buy things I've designed on...iPhone cases, so far. Just now there's only the design I made for Paige up, but there was another one I finished (before she kindly informed me that the instruction to just draw Raichu had changed to draw Raichu reading a book and NOTHING ELSE) that I'll be putting up soon.

I don't really expect to make much, but it's fun? o u o

Oh and here's the reading Raichu design:



Except it's totally not that fuzzy. Photobucket auto-resized the sample and then I resized it some more using the in-page auto-resize lol - fixed it 6 u 9

In which I draw [livejournal.com profile] etirabys as a sad snail of shame, despite not really remembering how snails go. Also, trying out new styles. LOOK, A TEXTURE

Sorry guys, I know I haven't been posting much lately. Things haven't been...great.

Spent a lot of today geeking out about art stuff though. Omigawd. I mean. I know y'all know that I art and stuff but I don't think I've really expressed the FULLNESS OF MY ART GEEKITUDE here before. But there are things that can get me in FULL GEEK MODE really easily and one of these things is COLOR PALETTES

OH MY GOD GUYS COLOR PALETTES JSMFLKSDMFKLSMFDSLK

And today I found things like these two color palette generators and this site and DKMSFLKDSMFKDLMSFSLMFLKMFEOIFM MEROFIMERDMFlmfcSOFMSIFImkvmsKLVMKVFIE

I JUST REALLY LOVE COLORS Y'ALL

ESPECIALLY COLORS THAT DO THINGS TOGETHER

LOOK AT THESE PALETTES I AM GOING TO DIE OF COLOR

I NEED SOMETHING TO COLOR LIKE RIGHT NOW AMKLDFMSKLDFMSDLKMFSDLK


ETA: CHANGED MY JOURNAL THEME AROUND

New colors, journal title is now song lyrics because fuck it, this is LJ. Critiques on new colors welcome. Especially if they hurt your eyes or whatever. Although I'm guessing most of you guys view things in your own theme

Also I think I'm going to change the colors again tomorrow anyway but input still welcome

I told you I would draw skulls!

And I am posting them for your enjoyment )

Trying to draw [livejournal.com profile] beasts_and_men and I's modern version of Victor Trevor

Problems:

-I can't actually draw somebody with good fashion sense because I don't have any myself. What kind of shoes should he be wearing help I hate shoes
-Do I actually know how a human pelvis works? This drawing is saying otherwise
-Evidently I have gone my entire life not knowing what jeans look like on a person, and I wear them every day

This art stuff is hard :c I think I will go draw more pokemon instead. Or a skull. [livejournal.com profile] grygon gave me permission forever ago to draw her skulls. Yeah, I'll draw a skull c:

Note the first: so I've actually posted something on [livejournal.com profile] owlofowls besides that one fic. It's the stuff I've been working on re: Sherlock/Pokemon fusion, and you can see it here. I won't be saying anything from now on when I post over there because that would be obnoxious of me, so I suggest you friend/watch that account if you want to keep up with these things? c:

Note the second: BOXCROFT )

Note the third: my leg is almost all better! YAYYYY

My stomach is now angry that I'm eating properly ('properly') again, though. Apparently it was enjoying the diet of nothing but pretzels and nutella and V8 juice. I dared eat something with just a bit of dairy in it today and it was like the vengeance of an angry god. In my gut.

Okay so it is, uh, not Valentine's Day any more. Anywhere, I think. But I'm only a few hours late really.

This is for my valentine, [livejournal.com profile] anobjectinspace, but I have decided to leave the entry public so you can all admire how awesome he is and maybe say nice things about him if you would like to.

So here is my v-day gift, a drawing of Topher as Sherlock.



(Basically [livejournal.com profile] beasts_and_men and I both agree that he is the closest thing to Sherlock Holmes that we know of, the only difference being that he is a bit more well-rounded and doesn't hate people or women. And the BBC show is clearly the best version so.)

Also no dA link because I'm not uploading a larger version anywhere, although an original-size version will be arriving in dropbox for you, luv.


ALSO - Paige - Sees pic is up at the same post. Or will be in a few minutes, but I don't think you're awake right now, so.

These are mostly for Paige but you can all look at them if you want )

Yes, I did use this icon just to bother [livejournal.com profile] anobjectinspace

He deserves it

Anyways this post was already going to be obnoxious anyways, so might as well go the whole way

BAZILLIONS OF ARAMII )

(For those who wonder why the hell I keep posting these when no1curr really...it helps me, visually, to have them all laid out so I can see them side-by-side P: that's the primary reason. If I think I'm getting too obnoxious I might start screening them? I could make an aramii f-lock)

ALSO I'm thinking of offering commissions (for real money, not just AMG as I am now). I am so broke you guys. Recent examples of work by me, on request/commission: thus and thus. Thoughts? They would be pretty cheap, like [livejournal.com profile] teenycom cheap.
potato_head: (^^;)
Some moar aramii. Oh, oh, first of all, cephalopod sketches if any of you guys wanted to see.

Now aramii flood )

I done did a pixel art!



...Um, yup, that's all. I'm inordinately proud of it and felt like sharing. Uh, it's a cheetah skull. I used this photo reference.

o u o

Oh, here, have some music too! Although you have probably all heard of Modest Mouse...I'm afraid my music tastes aren't terribly obscure, lol.
