It’s midnight, I don’t want to do homework, so here’s day 1 of #inktober! Guess who I drew, haha…

Q

What do you do if you have at block and can't think of anything to draw

A

GREAT QUESTION!

Most of the time I just draw this girl: 

and things happen, but my professor (the incredibly awesome John Hendrix) this semester had us compile a list of "100 Things That You Love to Draw." I’ve got things like pigeons, chickens, fat dragons, people in crewneck sweaters, Tifa, ocean waves, hightop sneakers, Tifa, bears, skirts, narwhals, sunny-side up eggs, and rice bowls on my list. It can be anything you like, and it doesn’t even have to be 100! Having that list is really handy because you definitely know that you like to draw certain things, but it’s even more satisfying when it’s concrete in a list. 

Observational Drawings are also helpful. When I have art blocks sometimes I just it in my room and draw things. 

Life Comics — there’s always something happening, and there’s always a way for you to make it interesting! Sometimes i’ll draw myself very angry and upset and stressed out b/c I can’t think of things. 

Fanart — well. pretty self explanatory. But it also extends to drawing your friends’ characters too! 

Reference Images —you’ve probably saved a lot of images from the internet over time. Flip through them and just see which compositions, colors, lineart style or whatever strike you and go for it! 

Copying — trace some stills from movies you like, or concept art. It’s really just a way to get your drawing hand going, but copying is also helpful for studies! (obviously don’t post them as your work haha) 

BUT MOST OF ALL, JUST DRAW!! Sometimes you’ve got to draw through your blocks and shake out the terrible drawings in order to get to the good ones. Draw on sticky notes or copy paper or in dirt! Doodle on your notes, on your friend’s essays, on your leg. You’ll find parts of your drawings that you’ll enjoy and can inform your work. :) 

Sketchbook Dump #1 

I’m taking a sketchbook class this semester and it’s been tons of fun. We get some prompts here and there, but the main prompt is “DRAW!!!”.

I finally got around to scanning some spreads (this sketchbook is huge) that I liked! there was a 40-heads assignment, watch a movie assignment, and the others are just random ones that i’ve done here and there. (this is why i’ve been struggling to get to the digital commissions…) 

I use a fun thing called HabitRPG, which treats your to-do list sort of like a game! You gain experience for continually completing habits and checking things off on your to-do list. It’s basically become my planner! 

Right now there’s a Back-To-School Advice Challenge going on, so I’m making a little post about how I use it for school. I like to use the checklists so I can go through a step-by-step process for my assignments. You can also put in due dates and make little notes too. HabitRPG is also awesome for groceries. So many experience points! My friend asked me how I got to such a high level and I told her I just use it…a LOT. Haha. Happy HabitRPGing!

caricature of chiumonster, pout princess

OMG

most accurate caricature of me, done by my wonderful friend brandonpogrob

WHEW the reason I’ve been so busy the past couple weeks is because my internships at these two awesome companies were wrapping up! I finished last Thursday. I was a part time intern at 20th century fox in their consumer products department and a part time intern at Disney abc television group in their research department. Both were incredibly fun, full of perks, and the people I worked with were so inspiring, funny, and awesome :’)

Hopefully I’ll be back in LA in the future! For now…St.Louis! And school. Ah yes. School.

People are giving Wilson money to thank him for killing an unarmed black teenager. Please report this to GoFundMe, as it violates their Terms of Service and they get 5% of the tens of thousands of dollars being donated. Click to report.

This is my message, in case you want to copy and paste:

Your Terms of Service prohibit “items that promote… hate, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime.” Take a look at the comments that come with the donations on this page and tell me that doesn’t violate your terms. “Support Officer Wilson” is a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.
