Anonymous: Stay strong! Hope you get better. :) As someone who wants to major in art I'm truly jealous of your skills. Hey I was wondering if you can give me links on how to do artwork (the style) like your saria piece. Also what kind of tablet and program do you use?

ah thank you so much.

I made a sort of tutorial not too long ago about how I go about coloring for that style. You can find that here. In terms of drawing style, I’m really not sure how to describe it. Style is something that takes a long time to develop, and everyone has there own personal drawing style.

One way to develop a style is to expose yourself to a lot of different art styles, and taking what you can from each. I’m not the most eloquent speaker when it comes to my own art, so sorry if this isn’t really informative. I think my style is heavily influenced by realism mixed with anime/animation.

As for my tablet and hardware, I use a wacom intuos 5 touch and photoshop cs5. However before my current tablet, I used an old version of a wacom bamboo tablet, and that worked very well for me for the vast majority of my college career. 

One last thing, if you’re thinking of majoring in art, please do your research on schools. I didn’t and ended up going to a pretty bad school. I could have got a lot more out of my schooling experience, but I went to a school that wasn’t really fit for me.

Thank you to those who replied to my post last night. I really appreciate the support. I’m not sure what I’m going to do, but I’m going to try as hard as I can to feel better.

chuwenjie has some really amazing oc’s for a project called GIRL GANG. I really wanted to draw her oc, Miyako, so I did! (info on her and other characters here!)

I’m not really sure why I’m writing this, but I suppose I want to explain myself. I feel like I’ve been acting rather odd lately and, though maybe no one has noticed, my blog has had a lot of inconsistencies lately. I do want to say that there’s some mental health shit under cut.

Hi guys little update here!
I’m going to be participating in InkTober (info on it here) for the whole month of October. I’m going to shoot for a little drawing each day, but I will update once a week with all seven just to keep them in photosets and to keep my blog a little clean. I’m doing this to work on my work ethic and as a form of stress relief. Aside from sketches, I haven’t done much in the way of traditional art lately, so it’ll be nice to step away from the computer for a bit. They’re most likely going to be simple drawings, and all original art, but I just wanted to make this post as a little warning type of thing. I’m sure I’ll still have other art things to post as well, this is just going to take priority over other projects.
Also, take a look at the project if you’re an artist! I think it’s a really cool idea and I urge people to try it!

I got this lovely print in the mail today from kinopia's giveaway!
I’m so happy I have empty frames lying around, because now I have something nice to put in one of them! 

Really I am so happy I got this today! Thought I’s share on both blogs! This really lifted my spirits today.

Why is awakening full of characters that break my heart?

My goodness.
There are so many games coming out in the next 3 months that I really want, and I’m not sure how I’m going to be able to buy them. It’s amazing, like I feel like there was a year or so where there was a lull in games I was excited about/wanted to buy, and now suddenly there are so many. Why did this have to happen when I’m almost completely out of money? The pressure is on to get a good job haha.

Hyrule Warriors was released today in america, but sadly I’m not sure when I’m going to be able to buy it. 

Have any of you played it yet? Let me know how it is! I’m dying to know!
