Unfortunately, I’m still severely art blocked but here’s a little something to celebrate an important holiday :)

Thanks and hello to all the new followers. I’ll hopefully be updating this blog with some real art soon…

Almost forgot to upload this old picture.

It had originally been my contribution to Alpha Tango Romeo, the Cabin Pressure art/fanbook, but unfortunately real life got in the way and I didn’t have enough time to finish it. Here’s the unfinished sketch.

Definitely check out the fanbook if you haven’t already! The artists who took part in it are all amazing and the submissions were beautiful! I believe they are still taking orders for the next couple of days so get them while they’re hot! :D

I really wish life hadn’t gotten in the way of this, but to all of my fellow artists who worked on this and made it to the finish line, I hope the fanbook continues to be a huge success! Congrats, everyone!

This tumblr is turning into an arts & crafts blog…

Sorry, still art blocked and still nothing new to upload so in the meantime, here are some hand-made/hand-drawn snowglobes I made for my close friends this xmas! The first one features my bff’s original character (Anora) and the rest of these are Hogwarts themed (in case you can’t tell). So far, there are two Gryffs, one Slyth, and one Claw among my friends. I still have two more of these to finish (since I got lazy): one Puff, and another Slyth. ^-^

Sorry, guys! Went MIA for a bit again cause work and school have been killer lately. Well, here are some quick Sherlock sketches to celebrate the premiere of season 3 (FINALLY!!). Warning: Spoilers everywhere! But you knew that already.

.

The first pic is just crack art and the second pretty much sums up this episode. Speech bubble reads: “Mon cheri, je suis ‘surprising and familiar,’ non?”

This is the first time I have ever loved Mary in any Sherlock adaptation. Not just tolerated, but loved! Amanda Abbington was the perfect choice!

.
Things that made this episode worth the insanely long wait:

  • All the teaser fake death scenarios that ANDERSON (?!?!) and his gang made up! (holy shit Morlock!)
  • How Sherlock’s death kind of broke Anderson… (wtf happened at the end? I’m still confused.)
  • How John said he had met someone and Mrs. Hudson automatically assumed that it was a guy.
  • French waiter Sherlock!! (though, I couldn’t help picturing Martin Crieff and his “bear polars”…)
  • John punching Sherlock.
  • John strangling Sherlock.
  • John strangling Sherlock on the floor while some sensual tango-esque music plays in the background. (seriously, Moffat??)
  • Mary becoming the biggest Johnlock advocate.
  • Sherlock trolling John with a car full of explosives.
  • Lestrade not-so-subtly asking Molly if he still has a chance of asking her out.

Ahh man, this episode was pretty darn perfect.

And right after the show ended too…

Shhh. No spoilers! I’m only on season 4… though I already have a feeling my favorite character’s going to die. Nooo, poor Jesse. I always seem to fall for the doomed-to-die characters.

(For anyone who lives in a cave, I’m talking about Breaking Bad.)

In other news, I decided to make a little paperchild for a friend of mine who’s a big fan of the Tenth Doctor.

Chubby little Tennant with his sonic screwdriver. Hee.

Well anyways, I don’t have much else to upload at the moment. Too busy watching BB and applying to post bacc programs. Ugh. Life.

A big thanks to all my new followers (broke 2k a few weeks ago! I’ll draw something to celebrate soon :D) and sorry for the inactivity. I’ll find my mojo again eventually.

Anonymous said: Hi! I saw your review on the Yiynova MSP19u and as someone who uses Paint Tool SAI I wanted to ask if it behaves fine? I heard it had issues with dual-monitor set ups but I was wondering if you had it working just fine either way? Thanks!

Yes, the Yiynova works perfectly fine with SAI for me and the dual-monitor set up didn’t cause any issues. Some people have said that the pen jitters a lot more on SAI than in other programs but I haven’t had that issue. I did have an unbearably jitter-y pen when I first started using it but that was because I hadn’t uninstalled my other tablet driver before installing the one for the Yiynova. Yes, you have to uninstall all other tablet drivers before installing the Yiynova, but if you’re like me and prefer to switch between tablets, you can always re-install the other drivers after the Yiynova has been properly installed. Installing other tablets after installing the Yiynova has no affect on the Yiynova. :)
.
One thing that has started to bother me more and more about the Yiynova, however, is its screen resolution. It really has a very low ppi for a tablet this large. After staring at it for long, my eyes start to blur or hurt. Then again, I like to draw with at least 80% of the canvas in view so it’s more of an issue. If you prefer to zoom in really close, the low res shouldn’t cause too much of a problem.
.
My overall recommendation to anyone who’s looking to get a Yiynova is still pretty much the same. Get it if you really need a Cintiq-esque tablet but can’t afford a Cintiq. If you do have enough for a Cintiq, definitely get the Cintiq. And, if you don’t really need a Cintiq-esque tablet but want an upgrade, just get an extra large wacom tablet.

You don’t need wings to be my angel.

Still painfully art blocked but I pushed through it to doodle a bit of Destiel for the start of Season 9.

Sorry for the crap art. My mojo is completely shot.

I have been so art blocked lately it’s not even funny…

Five minutes into trying to draw anything, I’m like:

And then I’m all like:

Halp. Someone give me a prompt, an idea, a song, something.

Preferably a song… since that tends to inspire me the most.

Suggs?

And a much less successful Papercraft Bilbo…"Papercraft" not "Origami" cause I cheated with the pants and cravat and used scissors on both. The jacket and shirt though are completely folded from intact sheets of paper.

Origami Cas.

(In response to Qs: Yes, I made this. No, there are no exact models online because I based these off existing diagrams and tweaked each one. Yes, all elements are made from square pieces of intact paper… with the exception of one scissor cut for the pants. And yes, maybe I’ll put up a how-to sometime for you guys… when I get the time.)

So, not only am I overwhelmed with work but I’m also incredibly art blocked. In the meantime, have some random origami for a change:

I present to you the tortoise and the hare… and the elephant and the dragon. Some messed up fairytale going on here.

In case anyone’s curious, here are links to the tutorials/models I used: elephantturtle, dragon, rabbit, and crown.

Equally random, here are some lovely Hobbit moleskines that I just couldn’t resist! (under cut)

…cause I’ve been busy with grad school prep. Harumph! :T

I’ll be back with real art soon-ish.

In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit.

iocane7 said: I love your My Fair Watson art! Made that much funnier, to me, by knowing that Freddy Eynsford-Hill in the My Fair Lady film grew up to be Sherlock Holmes in the Granada version.

OH. MY. GOD.

How did I not recognize Jeremy Brett in My Fair Lady?! My whole world has been flipped upside down.

Laughing and crying at the irony… cause we all know Freddy doesn’t get Eliza in the end.
