So this is a sketch i did today in class of Rythian and his minecraft skin. It’s been far too long since I’ve done some fanart of him. This youtuber is unappreciated. :) I will finish this…. eventually XD
Part 2 of my continuation post about my degree project for college.
I did these back in December/January. whoops!
Head shot of Sly was a result of me playing with my chibi style a little, and shading in graphite. Been so long since I’ve done that XD
Sly Pig from Block Hunt. Omg that was the best. I laughed so hard. lol!!
how much is a loaf of bread? hm? $3? $5?
At my local grocery store, bread is about $4.50 for a decent size italian loaf. If I make $7.25 and hour, that means I’d have to work 37 and a half minutes for a Loaf of bread.
but hey, that’s not so bad right? Work two hours and you’ll have a sandwich, eh?
Oh hey, turns out I also need toilet paper, rice, chicken, some veggies, a can of soup, and some cereal. (to name a few basic groceries one might need on a budget) we’ll round those things down to $25 just to make the math easier.
at $7.25 an hour I’ll have to work about 3 and a half hours for basic groceries.
That doesn’t include bills or gas or all the other groceries I need, That’s ONE quick trip to the store and I already have to work half a day just for that.
You don’t understand Anon, my pages could take HOURS if not DAYS. Between the sketching, inking, colouring, lettering, and finishing it’s taken at least a full two day’s work if not longer for each page.
I have a job that pays me beans, I cannot afford to post more pages a week without compensation. I literally cannot afford to do that. Not to mention the idea that art is only worth minimum wage cheapens the amount of work and effort that goes into producing it. I should be making WELL ABOVE minimum wage for my art via page count and commissions but it’s this damn “deviant art” mindset that makes people feel like they’re being swindled for paying a livable wage to artists. It’s rude and childish and I ask that you please stop considering artists as less worthy of affording a normal life.
You can either pay me what I ask for what you want or stop complaining about what I already give you for free.
I cannot fucking stand people who tell illustrators that something they produce is too expensive.
Yall motherfuckers want cheap? Go get some paper, get a fucking pencil and then draw it your motherfucking selves because nobody freelancing on the internet who hasn’t even half made it in the illustration world is charging you ANYTHING close to industry pricing even when some of us are as good if not better. Why? Because of people like Anon. Your name must be out there and known to charge anything close to what your time and skill is worth. Yet still? You are paying for my effort, my time, my blood, sweat and tears and a lifetime of learning my trade.
A cheap page for yo ass is a piece of paper I haven’t touched yet.
(As a freelancer I cannot staaaaaaaaaaaaaand people who pull this dogshit.)
$100 is pretty cheap for a page.
So excited!! This came in and I squeed all kinds of happiness!! My Xmas gift to myself <3 Sly is definitely one of my favorite Creatures ;P
I know there’s a lot more I could have covered but with tumblr’s image limit and my own need to get back on personal projects and packing my room up, I stuck to the ABCs of understanding artists and not being a total douche.
Hope this helps a little.
Finally, one of these that isn’t obnoxious or runs off of a strawman
Commission done! Chibi Pheebee and Emelia, 2 OCs created for the Dystopia Rising LARP.
Turns out someone has posted, without my permission, a still of my animation, http://preciousangelwings.deviantart.com/art/Blackrock-Chronicles-371148401
I have reported her on instagram (where she posted the still and then linked it to her tumblr) and even though people have been standing up for me against this act, people continue to give HER credit! >:( This is NOT okay. NOT AT ALL! I do not tolerate people stealing, let alone people stealing art, or MY art!! I spent 40 hours on that animation (pretty much) and she is getting credit?? NO! So… because of this, the Zoethian animation will be watermarked, every…. frame… Sorry guys :( It is now ugly and watermarked.
Meilee120 is the one who took a screen cap of the animation, if anyone is curious. I had tried to do this civilly but now people are giving her credit for my art. not okay. can’t stress that enough :( Thank you for those who have been backing me up :’) ShadowDragonia has been so helpful. <3
*EDIT: Update!! Instagram took down the image!! But she does have another zoethian image on her instagram. http://instagram.com/meilee120#
Scientists discover most relaxing tune ever
Sound therapists and Manchester band Marconi Union compiled the song. Scientists played it to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay.
Weightless works by using specific rhythms, tones, frequencies and intervals to relax the listener. A continuous rhythm of 60 BPM causes the brainwaves and heart rate to synchronise with the rhythm: a process known as ‘entrainment’. Low underlying bass tones relax the listener and a low whooshing sound with a trance-like quality takes the listener into an even deeper state of calm.
Dr David Lewis, one of the UK’s leading stress specialists said: “‘Weightless’ induced the greatest relaxation – higher than any of the other music tested. Brain imaging studies have shown that music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those regions responsible for processing sound but also ones associated with emotions.”
The study - commissioned by bubble bath and shower gel firm Radox Spa - found the song was even more relaxing than a massage, walk or cup of tea. So relaxing is the tune, apparently, that people are being Rex advised against listening to it while driving.
The top 10 most relaxing tunes were: 1. Marconi Union - Weightless 2. Airstream - Electra 3. DJ Shah - Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix) 4. Enya - Watermark 5. Coldplay - Strawberry Swing 6. Barcelona - Please Don’t Go 7. All Saints - Pure Shores 8. AdelevSomeone Like You 9. Mozart - Canzonetta Sull’aria 10. Cafe Del Mar - We Can Fly

I was so relieved this wasn’t a trick. Very soothing.
Wow… this was exactly what I needed. <3

So here is part 1/?? of the currently completed illustrations I’ve done for my senior degree project: Dualities (summed up)
Almost all of them have been done with micron pens, markers, and colored pencils and then tweaked in GIMP.
