when i was a young warthoghighschool student I had a story idea that’s probably a pretty common one for people to play with where this girl named Mary Sue (ikr?) was transported into random books and had to fix things with the help of some talking book that would fill with whatever story she was in. I even half-drew the first two pages and actually they aren’t terrible. The only story I can remember (which these pages belong to) is where she’s in Lord of the Flies and Simon becomes her sidekick. I still think face-plan-with-butt-in-the-air is the funniest way for a character to land though.

highschool was weird

I was very concerned for this Opalchild when I realized they were going to throw Bolin at her and I was so dreading all the secondhand embarrassment but then she set him straight and broke the evil curse he’s been under since season 2 and I fell in love

I hope she sticks around and becomes a total badass airbender because I got a little hint of Toph’s thirst for adventure from her.

1 to 30~! :D

That’s cheating s(・`ヘ´・;)ゞ

  1. Do you prefer traditional drawing, or digital? Digital is really nice when you have the tools. I really like using cintiques when I get the chance, especially for inking because I’m really bad. Traditional is good for sketching and fooling around though. I’m a lefty so I smudge alot though….But traditional is also good if you want to draw small and don’t want others to see, sometimes I get self conscious if my art is on a screen.
  2. How long have you been drawing? I gave up on drawing in preschool because I couldn’t draw noses and I was mad. But I liked my elementary school art teacher so I picked it back up then and haven’t stopped since and that’s why I’m in physical therapy ヽ(´ー`)┌
  3. How many classes have you taken? We just don’t know. (So many but also not enough)
  4. Do you have a DeviantArt, personal website, or art blog? This is my art blog and I have a deviantart that’s basically the same stuff posted months later. I have dA pages going back to when I was like 12 but I’m not gonna link them.
  5. What’s your favorite thing to draw? Faces looking right. And forests with cute little cottages.
  6. What’s your least favorite thing to draw? Everything. Shoes.
  7. How often do you use references? Not as much as I should, but getting there.
  8. Do you draw professionally, or just for fun? I’m in school to be professional and it’s not fun.
  9. How much time do you spend drawing on an average day? ( ̄~ ̄;)Not enough. I’ve been bad.
  10. Are you confident about your art? I am, actually. I know I need to improve a lot but I also know I can compete with my peers VxV
  11. How many art-related blogs do you follow? Idek. I follow some that aren’t technically art focused but make good reference (like interior design or fashion blogs), and I follow some but need to follow more art blogs.
  12. Is it okay for people to ask you about your process? Yes but there’s not much to it.
  13. Do you prefer to keep your art personal, or do you like drawing things for other people? Everything I draw is self indulgent and sometimes people happen to like it ヘ( ̄ω ̄ヘ)
  14. Do you ever collaborate with others? I’m too shy
  15. How long does an average piece take you to complete? I don’t do many finished pieces so usually less than 2 hours for most things. I tend not to pay attention to the time when I’m drawing, but I’m pretty speedy.
  16. Do you draw more today than you did in the past, or do you draw less? I don’t doodle as much as I used to, because I used to do that on my notes in classes and I don’t really have classes like that anymore. I also have been avoiding it sometimes because of my tendonitis, but I really want to draw more.
  17. Do you think you’re justified in giving other people art advice? It depends…I mean I’ve taken college art classes so I’d like to think I know things.
  18. What are you currently trying to improve on? EVERYTHING. Cartooning, environments, figures, props, ahhhhhhh
  19. What is the most difficult thing for you to draw? Fighting.
  20. What is the easiest thing for you to draw? Fluffy trees
  21. Do you like to challenge yourself? I don’t do it enough DX
  22. Are you confident that you’re improving steadily? I think just in the past 4 years I’ve improved exponentially.
  23. Do you draw more fanart, or more original art? I draw dumb fan characters that no one likes. But when I draw fanart it explodes compared to my original stuff ;w;
  24. Do you feel jealous when you see other people’s art, or inspired? (Be honest!) Inspired but jealous of their motivation?
  25. Do you like to draw in silence, or with music? I can do both, sometimes I’ll put in my headphones and forget to turn music on. Broadway soundtracks are my go-to though.
  26. For digital artists: what program(s) do you use? I use SAI on my laptop and Photoshop at school because the Photoshop on my laptop won’t cooperate with my tablet. I just got Manga Studio today though which we used a little in some classes, so I’m gonna play with that.
  27. For digital artists: how many layers does a typical piece require? I’m really inefficient and use around 5 just for refining the lineart. And then usually each color gets one and I abuse overlays so…alot.
  28. For traditional artists: what medium do you like most? (Pencil, charcoals, etc) Embroidery!
  29. For traditional artists: How do you usually start on a big piece? (Light sketch, colored lead, sketchpaper, etc) Either the faintest blue pencil sketch or on a totally different sheet of paper. (TBH even if I finish tradtionally a lot of the time I thumbnail digitally)
  30. What inspires you to not just make art, but to be a better artist? Other people’s enthusiasm about art! And wanting to not just tell stories but rearranging and deconstructing them. I have a habit of watching movies or reading something and thinking ‘okay but what if instead of ‘x’ what if it takes place in ‘y’ with ‘z’ as the protagonist instead’ and stuff like that.

Artist Asks!
