Some pencil drawings I’ve been doing this past week : ) I wanted to do that thing where you draw in a coloured pencil then go over it and i just ended up preferring to leave it all in coloured pencil? idk it’s been fun and i haven’t done this before WHICH SOUNDS SO DUMB but, i usually just sketch in led!
I’ve also been working on an acrylic painting for the first time ever! it’s so relaxing and yet difficult! I haven’t painted with acrylic for a very long time (since high school some time) and so painting PROPERLY and seriously with it now… i’m learning all about it! it’s been a lot of fun : ) but it is incredibly challenging to try and mix my own colours and get them right! but it’s been great learning how to make all my colours from just red, yellow and blue paint!
I’ve had to give my wrist a small rest this past week because it became incredibly painful (hot and burning, tingling, and stinging) and I bought a wrist brace and it has helped immensely ! so i’ll be using it when i draw from now on : )
and that’s all from me for now!
I will hopefully open up commissions very soon (i just need to make a nice post) as i’m still currently out of work and i also want to put my art to work so to speak : ) and try and earn some money hehe
also just fyi i have a twitter (triangleDAYS) that i’ve come to use a lot more these past few months, so if anyone wants to chat to me, feel free to tweet hehe

OH MAn I had no idea she had a twin brother! I really love how you drew Olive’s feet and shoes, they make such a nice contrast to all the earthy tones of their hair and skin and his outfit.
hehe! yes! it started out originally in another story that he was a clone of her whose gender was tinkered with, and Darcy had one too who is a girl : ) And Steph and i loved them so much we were like, FUCK IT LET’S MAKE THEM SIBLINGS!!! So Olive has a twin called Ollie (that was his original name, so the joke in other au’s is that their parents weren’t creative with names) and Darcy has a younger sister called Dana : )
and thanks so much for your lovely comment 8a8a8a8a8a8
Olive and her twin brother : )
tried to do a quick style, still took me… nearly 3 hours, but I guess that is quicker than usual for me! so that’s good! :D
anyway, this is from one of the many au’s steph and i have : )
Trout Heart Replica, Amanda Palmer
This is something super different to my normal art. I have a “wreck this journal” and this page was “colour this whole page”. I never paint traditionally, I wouldn’t know where to start so I just picked up my cheap ass brushes and paint and started going for it. I had on Theatre is Evil, and this song came on and I cry every time I listen to it, and i just started painting to the song and crying and it was just a really wonderful, emotive experience for me.
omfg !!!! 8A8 i can say the same right back to you!! i love your blog to bits : ) can’t wait for the next drag race season to start hehehehe!!!!
GOZER THE GOZERIAN, GOZER THE DESTRUCTORRRRR
patrickfedo got me all super pumped for Ghostbusters and I watched it yesterday hehehe
I doodled Gozer today because they are hella awesome :D
And this unintentionally looks a lot like a couple of artists styles i follow on here!! D: i think it’s the eye shape and stuff, (jaybeep and godzillabreath), just want to say i didnt reference anything but i have seen their art a lot in the past year so maybe it subconsciously flowed into the design??
anyway this literally took me like 30 mins if that : ) all done in sai :D
it’s super blendy in the mermaid pic coz i used the watercolour brush in sai? I usually have a mac so I hadn’t had a chance to use sai before, and I really am in love with really smeary brushes! I just can’t seem to get the right brush effect yet in photoshop but I was really loving these new brushes i downloaded a month or so ago when ~poop~my laptop died hahaha
thankyou so much for this kind message ;w; hehe i’m so happy right now ;w;w;w;w;w;w;w;w;
(i hope you don’t mind me posting this publically but it just has really put a smile on my face and motivates me to keep trying harder and harder! ;w; )
I found out today that it’s the logic board and would cost me $1600 to replace. But they might be able to salvage my files!!!
I’m not going to replace the logic board, it’s too much money to spend on /a/part/
I had been planning this year to save up and buy myself a desktop (9 years of laptop… time for a desktop!!!) because I’m serious about my art and I really want things to happen for me this year, so I want a nice big screen to make art with hehe.
I’m on the dole at the moment (trying every week to find work, but, nothing’s biting. Even with retail, this is kind of the dead time) So I would have to wait another month or so before I can get a computer.
Luckily I’ve got my mum’s desktop that I can use in the interim but it has a habit of playing up and not working hahahahaaaaa
So I think I will open commissions up, with a new commish. post : ) if anyone is interested :3
