digital art of an oc but only showing the lower half of their face. they're facing to the right in a 3/4 portrait. the main subjects of the image are the lips, which are light up by warm yellow high and shaded with light pinks and light purples. there are strands of brown hair visible off to the side, but they're not prominent

drew something and hated 90% of it so here's the 10% i didn't hate

What's a song you've had on loop recently?

i've been on a huge cyberpunk trip lately so i've been listening to Patient Zero's Empty Halls, as well as the rest of her album Transgressor (check her out, she's a trans musician making cyberpunk music)

What's something you've been listening to for years?

kpop sdkfjskldfj

Favourite video game soundtrack?

hands down the okami soundtrack

Is there a song that pumps you up? What is it?

uhh idk, it really depends on my mood. for the current Cyberpunk Mood it's Daniel Deluxe's Instruments of Retribution

just the being outdoors part tbh

normally i'm just a very indoorsy person, but i love going out to state parks/national parks and just taking in the sights without having to worry about emails or schoolwork. having a picnic is like the miniature version of that and it's great!! just sit there, eat some food, look at some nature 🌳🌲🌾🍄

I feel like art would be easier if I had a set "style" instead of just doing my best to copy screenshots and stuff? But honestly I have zero idea what I would want my style to even look like?? I see so many different kinds of art and every single one of them is soo cool and how do you just pick something???

zylphide

honestly it's like highkey impossible to really have a set style when you're first starting out, and it's always a continuing process. some people tell me that i have a style and i go "oh shit really??"

and kinda to repeat what others have been saying, a lot of times a style is just a collection of things that you like from other artists. like i got really inspired by this one webcomic where the artist drew the bottom eyelashes prominently and bam! now i do it all the time. but of course my art doesn't look like theirs, even if i did copy the way they drew their eyelashes. same if someone decided to say, copy the way i draw eyes.

really, a "style" is just a huge collection of "how do you draw this thing?" smooshed together, and you can swap things out as you find new ways of doing things or as you decide to experiment. try a lot of different things and maybe you'll find something you really like!

Their scales are indgo and their claws and horns are a dark, almost black color. Their fur is a light purplish silver and braided into one huge braid in the back and two sets of two smaller braids in the front.. They are wearing many piece of silver bands and filigrees, as well as purple and orange gems hanging off of the bands. Their horns have orange, diamond-shaped gens embedded in them.

im so pissed like

normally this class i'm teaching only has a max of 40 students but the profs added 20+ people because you know.... ~covid virtual~

except they still want to go back in person later like ?? there's no room for these kids to social distance and i still have to grade 64 submission each time

like... just get another TA instead if you want to increase the class size by 150%

me as an undergrad: i don't think the TAs should be so harsh when grading

me as a TA: the harshest grader in all of history, subtracting points all over the place because no one is reading the instructions and no one seems to understand anything
