5. I really enjoy drawing faces and expressions. :] As well as designing outfits.

6. Shoes :I

15. Depends! Sketches take anywhere from 30min to an hour while a more complex piece can take a few hours.

27. I honestly hate having a ton of layers. xD I think the max I can deal with is around 7.

1. I actually prefer digital by now but still love good ol’ pen and ink.

9. I’ve gotten in to a bad habit of only spending 1-2 hours lately but I’m trying to bring it back up to 4-5 hours that I had over the summer.

10. Depends on what I’m doing. I’m more confident in somethings over others.

18. Anatomy and composition! I feel my work has become too boring. :[

19. Haaaaaaaaaands

25. Music! I have a harder time doing ANYTHING in silence.

oh man I’m so excited. Copies of Tyree came in the mail today for AWA. And the colors look fantastic. I could cry at how well the colors turned out. They look just as pristine as they are online.
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh man I’m so happy over this haha

Artist Asks!

some really rough prototypes for some propaganda posters for my comic. Something I view important in telling a good story is how believable the world is. So I wanted to design some posters reflecting the time period it is loosely based off of. The posters will be for interiors in pages and such. Nothing glamorous. Just something to make it a bit more believable on what is going on in the story.

I really like this page so I thought I’d share it on my blog too. ^^

Read the full comic here!

❝ Wherever perfectionism is driving, shame is riding shotgun. Perfectionism is not about healthy striving, which you see all the time in successful leaders, it’s not about trying to set goals and being the best we can be, perfectionism is basically a cognitive behavioral process that says if I look perfect, work perfect, and do everything perfectly, I can avoid shame, ridicule, and criticism. It’s a defense mechanism. ❞

"Why Doing Awesome Work Means Making Yourself Vulnerable"

So, I’ve been waiting for someone to explain this extremely simple concept to me my entire life.

Hooooly shit I needed to read this article.

(via rouxfully)

"When I interview leaders, artists, coaches, or athletes who are very successful, they never talk about perfectionism as being a vehicle for success. What they talk about is that perfectionism is a huge trigger, one they have to be aware of all the time, because it gets in the way of getting work done."

Yyyyyyyyep.
