My internet is nothing more than a pile of rocks in a burlap sack trying to communicate with my computer telepathically. 

At least, that’s how effective it is. :T

Painted a fox at work today! Gouache forces me to be a lot more graphic than I usually am. It’s fun.

hinabnontumblargh.tumblr has the comics still

Yeah, and I know it’s uploaded a few other places too. Hell, I could buy the first book for less than $4. I just miss it. I miss the characters, I miss the suspense, I miss the updates. I’ve seen some of Tessa Stone’s recent work, and she’s still great, but damn do I miss that comic. I loved it so much.

SUDDENLY VICIOUSLY MISSING HANNA IS NOT A BOY’S NAME

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

This started off as a fierce looking bird that somehow turned into something that looks like it flew out of a JRPG.

I need to re-learn how to draw for fun again. Ever since I finished school I’ve been so positively afraid of not making full illustrations, not being witty enough, not being substantial enough, not being enough that I can hardly look at my sketchpad without a…

Thanks guys. I have such a harsh filter set up for what I can and can’t draw with my time, it’s become ridiculous. I’m like actively sucking the enjoyment out of it because I’m not critical of my art level per se (well, I’m critical, but I’m not as intimidated by that! I see that I still have a long way to go, but that’s a challenge I’m happy to rise to), but rather if I’m creative enough, and then I shoot down all my ideas until I have nothing left. It’s become a really vicious cycle that I’m trying to break! I think I’m just going to try and draw more and stress less about the subject matter. 

Thank you both so much for taking the time to talk to me about this. <3

beeps

idk what your doodlin habits are but all this kind of reminds me of a trick i learned for when you get a new sketchbook? like

you get a new sketchbook and its clean and pristine and EVERYTHING THAT YOU DO IN IT HAS TO BE GREAT so then you seize up and never actually draw anything in it

the secret to defeating this is to draw the stupidest thing possible on the front page

not mine but where i learned it from:

i wish id drawn that. dang. source

ANYWAY maybe you just need to figure out a way to deliberately ruin the first page of your ….. mental sketchbook???? something???? heck think of it as exhaust. fun/dumb/silly art = exhaust thats gotta be put out so the other part of the machinery works right. maybe not for always but it might be a jumpstart. if you put a tennis ball in a car’s tailpipe it explodes. get the tennis ball out of your tailpipe tea das gross

i had a point here. i think that was my point. i dont actually know if its helpful but there it is

horse butt

You know what, that’s actually really good advice. I never compared what I was going through to the “new sketchpad intimidation” dilemma but that’s exactly what it is. I think I’ve even told people this before, but I feel like I’m having an Alice moment with “I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.”

Thank you all for this, really. I’m usually so tightly wound and serious when it comes to this topic, but talking about it is really helping me feel more at ease.

So after talking to a friend about childhood movies I ended up watching Unico for the first time in about ten years. It&#8217;s so much cheesier than I remember it, especially the pretty-boy villain, but I also rediscovered my child

Jordanimate’s OFF 3D

Someday in the future, you never know, I may do Zone 3. But for now, after all the weeks of hard work, I hope you can finally appreciate all the hard work I put into creating this <3

To see the full photosets, check out my blog. If you ever use the pictures for anything, please credit me, and notify me if you want because it’d be nice to see what my work has influenced or helped ;u; 

And also putting drawings/sprites into any of these pictures is very much welcome <3

I will put every single photo I have used for my OFF project into a page on my blog if ever you need them! 

Thanks again~ 

Oh wow, I love this so, so, SO much. I always dug OFF’s bizarre, minimalist style, but I never thought it could be so pretty.

Award-winning artist Katharine Morling creates whimsical and often outlandish sculpture from porcelain and ceramics. Instead of simply making the pieces and leaving them in their ceramic form, the added touch of black in certain spots creates an illusive effect, making the everyday objects look like drawings in real life.

Did I ever reblog these? I save so many things in my dash I lose track. But these are awesome - they kind of remind me of the art in the series Daymare Town. This is also just such a unique take on sculpture, UGH, SIGN ME UP

I need to re-learn how to draw for fun again. Ever since I finished school I’ve been so positively afraid of not making full illustrations, not being witty enough, not being substantial enough, not being enough that I can hardly look at my sketchpad without a sense of dread. Which sucks, because I love drawing, but I keep stopping myself with the feeling that I need to do something more and that simply sketching or drawing for me isn’t good enough.

I have a problem with taking things too seriously, and I forget that in my mad dash to be a professional that I’m human and that the entire reason I want to do this professionally is because it’s something I love and brings me joy.

I need to remember this more.

theoldaeroplane said: your use of color is great!! it feels like oil pastels. i like how you use lots of different media!

WOW, my inbox never alerted me to getting this message! And THANK YOU BIRD. I’m also glad someone likes that I jump around with my media - I like playing with different things, but I also get worried that it adds to my stylistic/thematic inconsistency (or at least what I think is inconsistent).
