got some prints done today
Here’s a pretty fun challenge for you guys!
Go to this site and generate a single random Pokemon.
Now try to come up with at least three different character designs for that pokemon, no matter what you get. (Yes, even if you get Klink. That’s what makes it a challenge!)
This is an nice exercise to improve your design skills, but is also especially useful for PMD-E! Being such a big group, you often bump into a lot of Pokemon of the same species, and sometimes accessories/colors aren’t enough to tell them apart. Being able to put a lot of variation into characters is a great way to prevent that from happening.
That and it’s really fun.
EDIT: Hey, if you do this, would you mind tagging it #pokedesign? I’m interested in seeing these and I’m sure other people would be, too!
"The Sixteen Lesser Saints" is a collaborative project that a friend and I put together last spring – it kind of sat in limbo for a while, but this week, I put the final touch-ups on the art/bios and coded a website for them… just a small project, but one that I hope you enjoy (plus, it feels nice to finally scratch something off on my “to-do” list).
How to lose your mind twice in one day
- Tries to order some flower for my mom online. Accidentally orders $55 worth of flowers. ABORT MISSION.
- Earlier today I remember getting up to get carrot juice. I remember going to take a nap right after and thinking to myself “… did I even drink my carrot juice?”. I then proceeded to walk around my apartment for 10 minutes looking for the cup I used. Upon not finding the cup I questioned getting it at all.
I just found the cup. In the sink. Filled with carrot juice. … (꒪⌓꒪)
Hi guys, I really need your help. This instagram user has been stealing and reposting artwork without permission. I’ve tried contacting them - before I’d ever been aware of their account they had blocked me, presumably because they saw I post my own art on my instagram and knew I wouldn’t want others doing it. So I set up another account today, messaged them and they deleted my comment without responding and temporarily made their account private.
A friend of mine messaged them about her art, and they basically said “You’re posting it online, this means anyone can do anything they want with it.” They then blocked her and posted her picture yet again in screenshot format, tagging her in a comment so that she’d see it but be unable to respond.
They know what they’re doing is wrong, and without your help they’re going to continue doing it. What’s worse is that there are people defending the thief when I speak up.
If you have an instagram account, can you leave a comment or even better, report them? Their copyright report system is so complicated so I understand if you don’t want to navigate all those pages, but even reporting as a scam/spam is as simple as a click and it’ll hopefully draw instagram’s attention to the matter.
I’d be so grateful for a signal boost, guys. I really appreciate you even reading this. It’s so disheartening as an artist to just watch this happen.
See that bolded section?
Like, I cannot believe how brazen this user is, they’re deliberately antagonising the artists they’re stealing from.
*tries to act cool by not texting back right away but forgets and never texts back*
This is the same man.
This works quite nicely at debunking the “beefcake guys in comics are objectified for women just like women in comics are for men!”, imo. On the left: a magazine tailored for a male audience, showing him in full beefcake-type mode with headlines about how you, too, can look like this. On the right: a magazine tailored for a female audience, which has a headline about romance and shows him looking more or less like a normal dude.
Tell me again how comic book guys are designed for female sexual enjoyment, completely equivalent to anatomically-improbable spines and giant tits with their own individual centers of gravity, and totes aren’t just male power fantasies.
I’m cleaning up my folders and found these, some of my old doodles.
Stuff happens, occasionally.
Well done, xkcd. View the full “Frequency” comic here, it’s truly mesmerizing. I had no idea there were so many Sagittarii named Amelia who were fans of carbonated beverages.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to continue waiting for my turn signal to synchronize with that of a stranger’s, longing for that unspoken, unknown connection, that most universal element of the human experience.
