I attempted to draw something that was not yaoi for once. No wonder I feel a little empty inside. I drew this picture on a 2.5' x 1.3' mat board with watercolor, colored pencils, permanent marker, white-out, and orange/blue highlighter in my friend Stephanie's dorm room. I gave her a lot of mat board, and I had to get rid of it somehow.

This was the first time using watercolor on mat board. My friend Rori was like, "Instead of painting it one small stroke at a time, just get a big batch of it, and put it on there." I was like, "You are right!" so I mixed a whole bunch of watercolors together into a big bowl of water and splashed it all over the matboard. She screamed, "NOT LIKE THAT!" and I was like, "Shut up woman; I know what I'm doing!" -And SURE ENOUGH. I didn't. Haha. Watercolor noob!

Edited in Photoshop! Why is part of her hair purple?! GAHHHH! Now to do some unethical Medical Terminology! Everyone get your Mothers Day contest entries in! *shakes fist*

Kassu91I love the way how do the shinies and light spots and all. Impressive. And I also love the colours on this one. More please!

luckylace222NO! NO MORE FOR YOU! Just kidding- fix your grammar! *lecture*

I had to use PS to make some of those light spots pop out more, but it was mostly the whiteout that did the trick. Have you thought about using white-out on your own colored pictures (white-out pen to be exact)? It is convenient!

luckylace222Yes yes yes *ego boost* If I was a greek God, I would be the Goddess of Rainbows and everything Yaoi/homosexual tastic- and unicorns and penguins- maybe bagels too. I digress.

luckylace222With the texture and color transition, probably not. The closest I have seen to that level of MSPaint detail is restless_dreamer, but even then, the pixelated texture of MSPaint can still be seen quoite well. Oh well, it is, in itself, a kind of pixel style anyways!

RubiusI graduated this semester so no more school. Now I have to figure out what to do with myself. I've been going to school for 26 years and now I have no idea what to do with my time. Life keeps kicking me and I keep getting back up. Right now I'm just a little bundle of fear and indecisiveness. The entire thing has left me quite timid. I'm trying to get some drawings done, but it is a very slow process. I can do the pencil drawings, but when it comes time to ink and color, I kind of back away. I would love to make a comic, but don't think my comic skills would do my story any justice. I have been writing, but finding proofreaders is hard, and I when I look at a piece for as long as I have, I just start missing obvious mistakes. So if you know a good proofreader who wouldn't mind reading a few yaoi fanfic/novels let me know. :P
