Not my usual fare, I know, but guys, check out Lauren’s hand-bound sketch/notebooks! She got me a couple of tiny ones (like the ones in the 3rd photo) and they’re super cute and the paper is great and they fit in my pocket.

And for you guys here in the UK, isn’t Mother’s day just around the corner or something? Just sayin’.

Jones, you jerk, you’re late.

Whatever, love is forever, or something.

papiermache-hearts and I have these really cute characters (they’re cute, okay) that kind of like each other, but might actually be glad they don’t have real mouths to say anything about it. Beating the bush to a new level.

I don’t know how to use ps

I haven’t posted on here since basically the summer. I wonder if anyone thinks this is a dead account, but it’s not. >_>;; Sadly, I’ve just been too busy this past semester to make anything worth posting on an art blog. I do post more often on my instagram, which is more like a doodle blog.

I did this on the plane back to LA back in August, using Tifferini’s photo. I’ve always wanted to draw his profile, and she had a great image of him. I’ll be fixing him up a bit more, obviously, but for now, have a wip.

Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! Whatever you celebrate, it’s all good with me, so long as you’re not being mean, and so long as I can kiss you under the mistletoe. ( ˘ ³˘) *✲゚*。⋆

Turn on your radio and hide.

Welcome to Night Vale is a super cool bimonthly community radio show podcast that you should check out. Have some Cecil Baldwin, our kind show host. I don’t really have a headcanon for what he looks like, but I kind of imagine him as the real Cecil Baldwin. With hair. This doodle is completely incongruous to that. 

Hahaha, guess who got a tablet? And guess who didn’t draw Sherlock or Teen Wolf fan art to upload first? This was actually the best thing I doodled so far, so no SH or TW art isn’t for a lack of trying. I’m still trying to get used to it. And I’m too afraid to use PS and I don’t know why, so I’ve just been using the bamboo note software that came with my tablet? Yeah, something’s wrong with me.

Perhaps it’s my turn to say good night.

Murder!

or alternatively

"Come on, buddy! We got this!" "Thanks, Stiles."

I don’t know why they’re in suits, but why not. I also wanted to draw simple suits.

I just wanna talk here, so I will. No, they’re actually not saying “murder” at something, and Stiles isn’t getting giddy about it. It was actually a 1920s or 1930s saying for “wow!” I thought it was kind of funny and a little fitting, as a double entendre. However, I’m not entirely comfortable with using “murder” in that way, because our boys aren’t even dressed in the appropriate wear for the period. These things are important to me, okay. (Also don’t get me wrong, haywire Stiles in all his forms, whether it be hunter, demon, vengeful, etc., is enticing for me, because I love it when people with a strong sense of justice lose it. Because angst, though painful, is just so good, let’s be real. But I just don’t think that Stiles would ever give himself up like that. He loves his friends and family too much, and I think by now he knows that if one of them gets hurt, they all get hurt, and that’s not fair for anyone. Even though he often says “Let’s just kill ‘em, you guys.” And even if they just used death as a problem solver, we all know good and well that death does not solve anything (See: Peter Hale, Derek Hale, Allison Argent, etc). I’m pretty sure Stiles is smart enough to know that. That’s what I think, and these things are important to me too, okay.)

So this doodle was kind of an exercise for me… For some time I was giving myself hell about drawing bodies, and just a couple of days ago I threw my hands up and said to hell with it- let’s dumb it down and make things easier on myself. So I did! It was a bit easier, but it was actually pretty cathartic. I hope to go one like this for sometime, just reel it in for a while. Too often do I make things more difficult than they need to be, and too often do they turn out not as I like. I actually like this, even though it’s a doodle. 

It has also dawned upon me that my favorite pairing on this show is Scott and Stiles. I will take a brotp over romance any day. I don’t know why, but I like it, and that’s all the reason I need.

Okay, so I actually drew this a month or two ago, in anticipation for the third season. I just never got to scanning it. These are the main Beacon Hills High kids we actually know about for now. I feel like I messed up somewhere. Yes, I know I didn’t do Danny, and I’ll probably hate myself for not doing so, but I had only meant to draw the kids who were in direct contact to the supernatural.
From left to right: Stiles, Scott, Allison, Lydia, Isaac, and Boyd.
god these kids are really california kids christ above the layers calm down with the fashion y’all it’s fun to draw but come on

This is what I’ve been working on for the past couple of days. It’s my final for a traditional animation elective class I took this semester.

I actually had some fun making this one. It wasn’t as bad to make as the others I’ve done. Editing wasn’t that difficult either (even though I stressed myself out over credits that I didn’t need to make in the end, but oh well). Overall, I’m really pleased with the turn out!

ALSO. I was seriously inspired by Eternity Hat by QuinneCL on DeviantART. I told her so, and she was really charmed. Check out her stuff! It’s super cute and unique.

Yesterday was the screening of Coraline at Sid Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre, with guests NEIL GAIMAN, some really cool, famous, English author guy, and TRAVIS KNIGHT, some really cool, famous, animator guy. Needless to say, I was about to vibrate out of my skin when I saw the two.

There was a discussion after the screening about the movie and the book, about the production of the movie, and about the great stories that arose from the process and and from fans thanking Mr. Gaiman for his magical work. The two are very intelligent, charming men in whose presence I had the pleasure to be. I owe a lot to these two men, because I don’t think I would be where I am today without them. Thank you very much, Mr. Gaiman, Mr. Knight.

Another update sequence. That’s all I do, anyway.

1. Someone changed the background on the computers at the cinema school.

2. Someone was nice enough to make an extra extremity in case we needed it for our puppet.

3. The base for my stop motion puppet with his base color clay! I’ll post the finished product later.
