Ahhh! The new panda Pokémon that was unveiled a few days ago is the cutest thing ever, and resultantly I was compelled to draw one of ‘em hanging out in a bamboo forest. I want one on my team, possibly accompanied by Teddiursa and Cubchoo so I’ll have a whole gang of adorable ursine pals. :3
This new Mewtwo-like fellow is awesome, so here’s some fanart! I wonder if it’s a new forme or a separate but related Pokémon… if it’s the latter, maybe it could be called Mewtagen? Mewnique? Mewnicity? The Emperor’s Mew Groove? I should definitely be put in charge of coming up with Pokémon names, you guys.
Happy Halloween, dear denizens of this fleeting mortal plane! May you enjoy it as though t’were your last. Bwah… hah… hahhh!
Here’s a model sheet for a fellow who appears in a storyboard I’ve been putting together. I think he might be called Alston, or possibly Poe? He doesn’t get referred to by name, so I haven’t quite figured out that detail. He’s amiable, easily embarrassed, slightly smartly-dressed, and unfortunately ends up quite heart-broken. Sorry, guy! I wish things didn’t have to be so tragic, but my hands are tied. D:
Just a rant under the cut about art and life, mostly as encouragement to myself and also because of watching some of my favorite artists on tumblr struggle a little lately.
This is such a perceptive, generous post, I… I can’t even. Cassidy Stone, folks; a person whose life is seemingly a continuous, graceful progression of awesomeness!
“Take joy in the process” is something I really want to take to heart. Goals are often practical and a helpful source of motivation, but it’s so important not let the uncertainty in attaining them affect your sense of self-worth. The very fact that you’ve committed yourself to an endless process of improving at, appreciating, and further understanding something you care about is, in itself, success! Not a fleeting kind of success, but one you can draw strength and inspiration from indefinitely. It can be difficult, like most things that matter, but there’s also so much joy and personal fulfillment to be found in pursuing something that’s deeply important to you. So, love the process!
A tribute to one of my favourite poets - the great Edgar Allan Poe! This was really fun to draw, I find there’s something soothing about working in tones. Also, I managed to finish it in a noticeably shorter stretch of time than what I might usually spend at something of this sort… so, I’m feeling happy about my incremental improvement!
Oh goodness, I really haven’t been posting enough arts. Apologies for the creative negligence! If my motivation had a butt it would want to get its butt in gear. Which isn’t a great analogy, because I don’t think most butts have gears or really any moving parts worth speaking of. But anyway, here’s a doodle of a pompadoured dude? A… a pompa-dudele.
