Sing P-O-N-Y-O!

UGH. SO BAD. I was listening to the English version of Ponyo’s theme song IRONICALLY and Disney’s voodoo magic made me actually LIKE IT.

Wonder Woman Day 4

Here be the finished piece! (A photo, sorry for the quality!!) Please support Wonder Woman Day (on October 25) this year by submitting art, bidding on art, attending the event, or just picking up Wonder Woman and giving her story a try!

To get the galaxy without using whiteout, I tried some ‘drawing gum’, which I assume is just masking fluid in disguise -3- I tested effects like masking out on scrap from the same watercolor paper to make sure they worked:

Success! On to masking everything!!!

Ahhh, it is a glamorous life, this.

I don’t understand what it is that you’re chasing after

Okay, trying to link to Deviant Art for the first time here:

Finished Nausicaa fan art!

Nausicaa Fan Art

You see me crawling up the walls for you

This fountain piece is still marching slowly on…That’s the last of the people, but next comes the cascading water in the fountains. Very intimidating. Should I dry brush…? Try to copy the photo identically…? I like it too much to mess it up now!

Yesterday, Periscope intern comrade Emi Lenox invited me to join the sketch group she keeps with Angie Wang. It was so cool! We went to a swanky Pearl District cafe and talked for a couple of hours, with a little drawing in there, too. :P I’m still new to this ‘other people draw comics’ thing, so I appreciate meeting more people who do, especially in Portland. Both gals are funny, talented, and just the kind of people you feel lucky to know. :D And check out their sites! Holy skills, Batman!

Still listening to Evident Utensil by Chairlift on repeat. I can’t get over that song!

Butter me up, I’m on a roll!

The toaster people are ready~~ 8D

When/in what form they’ll be available TBD. And since I know you’re all curious what I would look like as one:

You sit in the quad, and think, "Oh my God! I am totally gonna go far!"

Nick’s Birthday_ink
Originally uploaded by tallychyck

I’ve been playing around with brush inking this month, and have decided on a new project to help me learn: I’m going to attempt to recreate 5-20 of my favorite old photos with waterproof ink and brushes, and then watercolor them. Ideally, this will help me learn 4 things I could use practice on (anatomy, environments, brush inking, and watercolor), and be a very fun time, too! Who doesn’t love reliving happy old moments?

This recreation is from a photo of my little brother Nick’s 10th birthday, with my little little brother Neil making a great face (Are they not adorable??):

Oh hey, third benefit I just thought of: I’ll be ahead on Christmas presents!! xD;
