about me

sketched up a little poe design when i first changed my username just for funsies, but i decided to color it today ^^

might use them as a mascot or smtn idk yet


first art on my new compter!!

and first time using clip studio paint too ^^ haven't tried any fancy settings or brushes yet, i'm just getting used to the layout still


this is the closest to looking like me i've drawn my sona so far i think? they're even sorta wearing clothes i own haha


yeah so no stream today after all

it's already kinda late and I don't feel good bc I had to go out today


opportunity reblogged goat-ish
vampbyte -

last month i started a multi-part guide on drawing backgrounds for beginners (or any artist anxious about getting started!). i took some people's questions on twitter about things they struggle with most regarding backgrounds and i'm using those to write up this guide, so hopefully your burning questions about backgrounds are answered here!

  • how do perspective lines work?

  • how do you decide what to put in a character's room?

  • how do you make your backgrounds less flat?

all that and more is answered here!

these guides are free to read and will stay free to read. if you find them helpful consider supporting me on patreon or ko-fi if you like! i post free guides to my patreon regularly and bonus content for patrons 😊

i hope these are helpful!

what gif maker u use? try making sure loop is set as infinity if option ^^


ok so random thought

tw: transphobia and use of a generalized "you"


I never understood the requirement for some transition things to "live as your gender" for x amount of time like??

i have been living as my gender for my entire life already, I just didn't know how to express it to others at first

is it because you want me to face direct transphobia for a while before making any decisions? are you hoping that will change my mind??

also if it's for surgery or smtn, do you know how hard it is to "live as your gender" when you are constantly outwardly viewed as your agab? I can't come out to every stranger that ever looks at me!

....

rly hoping i don't end up having to face smtn like this rule too heavily during my transition bc ugh it's already hard enough as it is


hello waterfyall! sorry for the absence

we found out the back wall of my room was badly made and water-damaged so I had to work every day this week so my dad had time to fix it (he also installed a window so i have natural light now yay)

we put an ac unit in the window too so i didnt sleep well bc new noises

so today im taking a recovery day, and ive got work tomorrow

but im considering doing a stream on sunday? i i got my new computer set up and id like to mess around with learning clip studio and trying out some games on it to see how it performs

if i do stream itll start maybe 3 or 4 pm central US time

ik im in a weird timezone for a lot of you, but i have to work monday so i cant stay up late this time ^^


the fact that im still deliberating on going back to college this semester and classes start in less than a month 🤔


if i dont go i lose my state funding and have to start paying back student loans, but if i do?? i have the chance of making friends ig but the risk of getting sick is higher sooo...


some recent photos, these ones havent been edited (i usually just color-correct my pics a bit)


ahh everyone looks like theyre having fun with artfight so far!

i can't even think about drawing till after the holiday is over 😭


beefox asked:

Stella thought math with letter scary? APPARENTLY there math with number that don't exist! that don't make sense! like. they make up number even though no make sense!! like apparently there number i and that is magic number that if times i*i then is -1 even though that not how number work!

bee hate this!!! why!!

autiestella -

O_o math ppl need be stop!!


opportunity -

as the resident good-at-math autistic, I agree that math ppl need to stop


seeing whatever being discussed on twitter and how ppl seem to be acting lately im big time considering just dropping out of college tbh. i cant learn well in online environments and it seems there's a good chance in-person classes wont be safe esp by next month

but dropping out means i have to start paying back student loans (or at least my dad does bc he used most of the money on the mortgage) and idk if the store is going well enough yet to support that. i dont even know who to talk to abt setting up payments

im glad im not in a big populated state but i still live p close to the capital city of mine and i certainly cant afford to not work

I'll discuss stuff with my dad after the 4th rush and probably focus on getting a new computer and commissions/streaming to maybe make some extra money?
