hey everyone!!!! I’m super pleased to announce that my new webcomic will be launching September 7th!
Quick$ilver, which has nothing to do with the preexisting x-men character, and everything to do with money and Ke$ha (I’m only half joking) focuses on the life and times of a beautiful little disaster named Luci.
I’m going to be doing things a little differently this time around and will be updating in spaced-apart chunks, roughly a scene at a time every month or two, as I complete them.
You may remember my previous, unfinished webcomic, Acanthity. This story is set in the same alternate-Vegas universe, and features many of the same characters, but it’s certainly a very different kind of story, visually and thematically. I spent several months in comic-purgatory, recycling and reshaping a lot of the old elements and ideas into something new that I’m very excited to share! I can’t wait to finally set this story loose on the world and I hope you enjoy reading it too! <3 <3
I’M SO PUMPED!!!!!!!!!
ME ALSO OMG!!!!

Tuesday Tips - Gesture Drawing
As a story artist, I feel like one of the most important technical skill to develop is the ability to draw things things clearly and fast. Practicing gesture drawing is, in my opinion, a good way to get better at it. I think it’s fun, too! Of course, you can draw from life and find unique things people and animals do, but I also think practicing gesture drawing from imagination is truly helpful. For instance, I usually do some gesture drawings of characters I’m about to work with in a sequence. It helps me find a short-hand to start building from. The simpler, the better. Especially early on a project, it really helps to find a quick way to draw a character over and over without repeating yourself all the time.
I remember Life Drawing teachers telling me to “draw from within” and to “feel the weight”. It’s absolutely true, but in terms of storyboarding, other elements came to be as important to the process. Silhouette and a sense of “cartooning” is tremendously helpful to communicate certain things clearly to an audience.
I’m only focusing on character posing right now (and this is just an introduction to the subject). Gesture drawing is very close to thumb-nailing, another ultra-helpful skill. More on that later.
For those who want to spend some money on great books on the subject, I highly recommend you to pick up “Drawn To Life: 20 Golden Years of Master Classes of Disney Master Classes” (Vol. 1 and 2) , from Walt Stanchfield. Do it.
Is that why all the Doctor’s companions are female? “No co-ed tardis for you.”
Sorry, had to butt in.
Ian Chesterton, Steven Taylor, Ben Jackson, Jamie McCrimmon, the Brigadier, Sergeant Benton, Captain Mike Yates, Harry Sullivan, Adric, Turlough, Jack Harkness, and Rory Williams are what, spare change?
NOT ALL THE DOCTOR’S COMPANIONS ARE FEMALE.
uh…you forgot someone.
the stars on the american flag are actually asterisks for all the restrictions on the freedom it boasts
Sorry not sorry. Song is Agony from Into the Woods. I just livestreamed this for no reason.
I REMEMBERED THIS EXISTED TODAY
>have a to-do list. write one first thing every day.
>include all the items you didn’t get done the previous day. if you got nothing done yesterday copy it all out.
>if you have a running project and you want to work on it a little every day, literally just write it on your list every single day. write it, work a little, cross it off. do it again tomorrow. repeat until done.
>develop an obsessive interest in the positive neural response that comes from crossing off items on your list.
My sister gave me a coil of fairy lights. And now I want to throw a pajama party with you cute tumblr girls. But you all live in Narnia.
For a moment I was alarmed because it looked like you had a ring of fire under your bed.

This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.
favorite things about this
- literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
- the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
- all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
- that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.
I JUST DIED
