i always see advice to artists from abled guys thats like “draw every day even on the days where you feel totally uninspired and like you cant even pick up a pencil” and i actually think that advice sucks and is terrible because some of us will spiral out of control into horrible depressive episodes if we force ourselves to draw on days where we feel terrible and end up with something less than spectacular so my advice to artists is “take breaks and love yourselves”
Just a few sketch doodles.
Skathi: The Last Goddess. Warrior frost giant out on an adventure… Some lighting practise with a glass and a little die I had on my desk and some fanart for the new animated mini-series by Pat McHale, Over The Garden Wall!
I really gotta do something with his blog.
Big thank you to everyone following me, by the way!
I don’t know if I should invest about $800 USD on importing a Yiynova… Hmh.

More sketches, warm-ups and pre work doodles.
This week I focused on thinking up some illustration ideas for stuff I could work on, and some colour practise with Manga Studio 5!
Plus, a some costume design for a comic. Tried several different styles and forms for the desses, and I really like the work I did. Even though I don’t actually know the first thing about fashion design, I just tried working with a few visual cues I knew.
And finally a little Metal Gear Solid fanart.
I’d buy car insurance from THIS guy!
(Quick two-page comic I did! Its a Magic The Gathering joke!)
This week’s sketchbook is pretty much all Concept Art and Costume Design.
This is for a bit of a passion project/comic I’m working on with a friend. Its coming soon!
Our brand-new comic, launched just today, will update every Tuesday and Friday. So come on back regularly and follow the space-adventures of the space-future as they develop… in space!
These two are people who love the medium of sequential art enourmously, and not just in being fans of comics, but also of making them. These two are hugely talented people who know very well how to craft a story and to illustrate it to its best. Though as artists we are always learning, they’ve proven to being a force to be reckoned with in the webcomics world.
Gun and Psu have both been great teachers to me through the years and I want to thank them openly for their help and support with my own art and career, and I wish them only the best.
If you know about me you probably already know about them - but I do formally request you give this comic a very much deserved shot.
