Watching SNK [Finally!]Commissions | YouTube | Art Tumblr---Me updates (feel free to skip): Finally getting settled into the new apartment. Boy was that ever a pain. The internet company we were trying to use (and ended up using) took FOREVER to set things up. Long story short, we have internet and are now living here full time.

This year is a little more hectic since I'll be going to two o-o I'm gonna try to spice things up a bit, get a little fancier with the display and offer a wider range of products. I'm not too worried, it's only March and the cons aren't until July (and one week apart! ). Though I know I'll get behind if I let myself Alex and I spent a while apa

Drawing Exercises (Ideas for Artists!)Latest NewsHello ya'll!So I'm trying to get into the routine of doing studies and practicing every day. As days and days past, I realized that the same ol' way of doing things can get boring after a while. I wanted to try to make things more fun, so I thought of doing some exercises! Sadly, with all my Google searching, I found nothing. Luckily, with some inspiration of other artists and friends, I managed to get some ideas. Seeing as how hard it was to find any, I figured I'd share them in case any of you need some inspiration.Keep in mind, these are NOT prompts! These are exercises for studies and practicing. (Though you're welcome to combine them with prompts but they were designed specifically for improving your skills.)-- Drawing from Imagination (Thanks Sycra!)1. Find a picture you wish to reference from.2. Write notes about the image. What does it look like? Shape? Colors? Values? Whatever you want to study.3. Hide the picture

Collection: Snowed InShare|ArchiveSnowed InThere is no more stark dichotomy than the conflicting feelings we have about the wintertime. Many find the snow–blanketed landscape makes winter the most serenely beautiful of the seasons. But people die of exposure in the cold. The idea of being “snowed in” evokes thoughts of fireplaces and hot chocolate and snuggling under piles of blankets, of family reunions and gift–giving, and taking an annual “time–out.”But it also means lost work hours and school days and danger should someone need to go to the hospital through white–out conditions on ice–glazed roads. Winter is the most beautiful but also the
