Art Academy: Sketchpad Drawing Process Tutorial

Sunday, March 22nd, 2015

Have you been following my art work, either on Tumblr or Deviantart? :3  Occasionally I have enjoyed drawing using the Wii U app Art Academy: Sketchpad, which has really cool pastel brushes in particular!!

While I was working on this for the Majora’s Mask drawing contest being held on Miiverse, I thought it would be cool to post my step-by-step drawing process when I’m working with Sketchpad, because I’ve never done anything like that before~

Here are my posts on the subject, or you can go to the Miiverse post to read them more easily or zoom in on the pics, and so forth~

Scrapbooking and Papercrafting Goods!

Monday, May 7th, 2012

I did a lot of paper collage work when I was in college! It was just the easiest way to toss big blocks of colors, patterns, and textures around, like I love doing in digital works, translated into traditional media. I’ve never made a typical scrapbook, but there are SO MANY creative things you can do with these papers and tools!

Today’s post highlights Stuff4 again, this time their scrapbooking category!

42 Sheets/Pad All Occasion Glitter Paper Stack

I have this stack!! I used it quite a lot!

The bright colors and fun designs were just perfect for my art projects! ^o^

And everythinnnnng is better with glitter!

Martha Stewart Glitter Glue Set 24/Pkg

And just in case there isn’t enough glitter in your projects, you can always add your own!

Que Sera Sera Decorative Acetate Frames

The designs on these frames are so pretty. o^o

Frames aren’t limited to photographs! Imagine how some colorful art work would look behind these! ^o^

Wild Flowers Martha Stewart Punch-Around-The-Page Large Combo

When I worked at Jo Ann, I always admired how beautiful these punches could make the edge of your paper look, and I always wanted to buy some of the lacy ones like this one. o^o

Baby Boy Page Kit 12″X12″

Nursery stuff is always-always-ALWAYS adorable!!

You can use dimentional stickers on more than scrapbook pages! My laptop has glittery dimensional flowers on it. n_n

The Cutest Colorful Yarn & Crochet Kits

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Learning to knit or crochet can be an integral part of creating your own cute accessories! Crochet has become extremely popular in Fairy-kei especially, as Peter Pan collars in nursery shades of yarn is basically a staple in most coordinates now. Knitted or crocheted purses or brooches are also commonly seen.

Stuff4 is an online store with SO MANY CATEGORIES for all kinds of arts and crafts!! If you couldn’t tell by the little introduction up there, we’re focusing on the knitting supplies today, especially variegated yarn in sweet pastel colors. ♥

Bernat Lavender Lullaby Softee Baby Ombre Yarn

Sooo sweeet!!

These colors remind me of a storybook garden!! n3n

Bernat Tickle Me Pink Pipsqueak Yarn

A chunky, fluffy yarn that looks extremely soft. ♥

Is there anyone that doesn’t love that perfect, rose-petal princess shade of pink?

Bernat Garden Baby Baby Coordinates Yarn Ombre

Ahhhh look at those darling colors. ; 3;

There’s a cute squiggly texture to this one, too!

Bernat Lavender Waverly Yarn

Lavenderrrr… ♥♥♥

What a perfect dreamy shade. And Waverly yarn is so thick and soft. *o*

Beginners Crochet Kit

…And if you haven’t any idea what to DO with all this cute yarn I’ve posted here, this kit will certainly get you started!! There are crochet hooks included in common sizes and even plastic yarn needles.

Happy crocheting!! :3

Sometimes I open up Corel Painter and I’m like “Man, why don’t I use this more often?! It’s great!” and then I’m like “why do these colors turn white when they try to blend with each other” and “why do the edges look awful when I paint on the layer below this” and “why aren’t any of the shortcut keys NORMAL” and other technical things that are annoying…

So here, finally, is my Thundercats fan art. I don’t think Tygra looks quite smug enough. He also has the weirdest hair ever.

Luckigrrl, a player of Ether Saga Online, commissioned me to draw her character! ^o^ We bonded instantly over having played a common game. <3

I’m super happy that folks are commissioning me to illustrate their characters in MMOs! Yes, people! I WANT TO DRAW ALL OF YOUR AVATARS! @<@
