There was a little bit of a bummer with my tablet - it doesn't work with Krita, the free art program I downloaded to work with. There was much flailing, but the cheapest alternative I could find was the subscription for Photoshop. Painter was way expensive (ignoring the fact that I only know the basics), … Continue reading Terrible Doodles
Another YouTube artist! You'd almost think I spent a lot of time the last few weeks sitting on YouTube or something. Ha. Yes, that's totally what I was doing. This one is Angel Ganev, and his channel is a little different than the others. He's a fantastic artist, and he's good at teaching and breaking … Continue reading ITJFU: Angel Ganev YouTuber
Today's spotlight is on LavenderTowne's adorable YouTube Channel and Comic on Tapas. She's soft spoken and upbeat, and her artwork is both stylized and adorable. I LOVE the way she changes the shape of the pupil in her characters' eyes to reflect how they're feeling, what they're doing, the general situation - it's so cute! … Continue reading ITJFU: LavenderTowne YouTuber + XP-Pen

This will sound a little odd - I'm not sharing photos samples for this artwork here because all of their photos are the actual pieces of art and not like a header to a page or a promotional image. But I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY by this team's sculptures. They took existing prehistoric skeletons and … Continue reading Quite Possibly the Best Artwork I’ve Ever Seen
My brother gifted me these 60 Ohuhu Markers (company site) for Christmas, and of course the first thing I did one Christmas Day was swatch them. I took a cut up mailing label, swatched on it, and then stuck it to the markers with a bit of extra tape for the edges so they don't … Continue reading Swatching My Christmas Present!
So, I recently discovered that Washi tape is a thing - thank you, Japan! And it's ridiculously cheap for how pretty it is. I splurged on my personal spending money for this set: I usually buy books with my pittance, but this time I couldn't resist. And look how pretty it is!!! These all come … Continue reading Washi Tape Cuteness!
Silly five minute post. My husband asked me to design a cute game character for him, and this is what I came up with. I sketched it out in advance, and then he had me use a pixel art program to draw it. I went with blue and green because blue his his favorite color, … Continue reading I Designed a Cute!

The photo was nude, so I gave her some clothes. *smile* If you're interested in knowing what photo I used, I can dig that out. It was from a book of female nudes. Again, I had to color adjust because … Continue reading A More Realistic Watercolor
