New podcast recommendation (well new as in I just started listening to it but it’s been running for over a year): DRUNKS AND DRAGONS

If you like D&D or just listening to some goofy friends roleplaying hilarious/weird scenarios please do yourself a favor and listen to it. I’m already 63 episodes deep after a week and a half… So I scribbled out some fanart during some free time! (Or time I should have spent doing more productive things whoops)

Pictured are Titus Harper the insanely over-the-top angsty sorcerer, Aludra the asskicking ladydwarf, and Thom the quantumsexual dragonborn. Seriously, just go listen.

Hi there! Loved the Spy Fox trailer. I was wondering wether you would have any tips for beginners at Maya and 3D animation? (:
Anonymous

Thanks a lot! This is a pretty daunting question to answer because Maya is a HUGE program and it’s easy for beginners to get lost in the hideous seas of Lambert 1. I also learned pretty much all the basics thanks to the help of teachers and colleagues on a curriculum that eased me into it…because it’s incredibly overwhelming. (I cried a lot when I was learning Maya for the first time at school true story VERY STRESS)

I’d recommend looking into Digital Tutors and Lynda.com if you really want to get into it. Their tutorials are really thorough and I don’t think a lot of their practices are too far off “industry standard” though I don’t really use them terribly often. Youtube has a ton of tutorials of course, but their quality of instruction can vary quite a bit. Start with simple modeling projects to get familiar with the interface before anything else!

Greetings! I have stupid and quick questions. a) for your sketchbooks, what red/black pencils/inks (idk I'm so new to all of this kjfadha) do you use? b) how do you get such good, dynamic poses and such? (and, of course, lovely art as always!)

Answering these together because they’re pretty related — you can scope out all my usual drawing supplies HERE! I also carry a Moleskine sketchbook currently, but I pretty much always switch to a different brand every time I buy a new book. I like the texture of Moleskin but it scans really ugly. But, I am of the opinion that it doesn’t really matter what materials you’re using, it’s all a matter of personal preference and how you choose to use them. Try different things and find what you like! 

For my digital sketches, I almost exclusively use Kyle T. Webster’s brushes. The 2B pencil and 25 px charcoal pencil are my favorites for sketching. They’re not free, but they’re well worth it I think. 

As far as these “good, dynamic poses” you speak of…HUH. I’m (relatively) fresh out of college with an animation degree, so I had to think a lot about characters in motion and how to make strong poses. Check out some sites about line of action and gesture drawing. There are a lot of resources for this on animation sites by people who are much more qualified than I am. It’s something that comes with practice! I still think I have a ton of learning to do idk I just try to draw with a certain amount of tension and movement and not bore myself too much but it probably all ends up being the same poses anyway!

I’m not dead! But I AM occupied with a few other large projects right now, so I’m trying to focus more on those instead of lots of smaller drawings. 

The first few are from my very first DnD game I’m learning to play AAAAAAAAAA don’t even talk to me about centaurs not being a playable race in 4e because I will cut you up. (I used a satyr to build him though.)

That’s my beautiful unicorn centaur bard Blueberry, who disguises himself as a pretty human lady among mortals. The model is obviously a very creepy WIP, but I rarely model in my free time, so I thought it’d be fun to share it so you can see how gloriously far he comes by the time I’m done posing, texturing and grooming (I hope???)

And then other misc sketches and a WIP of a PAINTING I CAN HOLD IN MY HANDS FOR ONCE ♥___♥

Thanks for the asks guys! I got some repeat questions, so these few I screencapped covered everything. I addressed a few above, here are the rest as text:

ARTIST ASKS

4. Lineart definitely, I actually have no confidence in my color/painting abilities, I still have TONS to learn and no real technique I feel well practiced in… (Admittedly I do love lazily coloring in my scribbly sketches.)

8. I am a lazy music listener, I let Pandora DJ it all for me. I only listen to music at home, and it’s usually one of two stations.

At work, I am a HUGE podcast junkie. I listen to a lot of MaximumFun Shows like My Brother My Brother and Me, Oh No Ross and Carrie!, Throwing Shade, Sawbones, Stuff You Should Know, This American Life, and Radiolab regularly. On occasion, TED radio hour, RISK!, The Nerdist, and…a zillion others. (Before you ask YES I listened to Nightvale, but the fandom community really ruined it for me, thanks internet. Also, I am an asshole.) I also listen to NPR’s Morning Edition every day and let their 24 hour program stream drone all day when I run out of podcasts. I’m pretty much 100 years old, and I would definitely win on Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me.

9. Literally every time I don’t know what to draw I default to drawing lions/tigers/snarling big cats lunging at things, so probably that. I guess you’d never really know that looking at my dumb blog huh

(For someone who almost never remembers to draw in her sketchbook, my pencil case is basically stocked for the apocalypse.)

Artist asks GO!

    1: Take a picture of your workspace.
    2: Show your pencil case and what's inside.
    3: Show a thing you last drew, no matter how small or a "doodle" it is.
    4: Lineart or coloring?
    5: Who/what inspires you?
    6: Draw a same pic with your dominant and non-dominant hand.
    7: Do you have any OCs?
    8: Do you listen to music when you draw? Favorites?
    9: Favorite thing to draw?
    10: Least favorite thing to draw?
    11: Draw a pic of yourself like how you look just now.
    12. Any weird artist behavior you admit doing?

Daenerys for two reasons:
A) there’s been a rash on my inner thigh of wonderful Dany/GoT art on tumblr and I’ve always wanted to paint her all fresh and bald with her lion pelt (as described in the books), and 
B) Kyle T. Webster just released an unbelievable set of watercolor brushes and I had to play with them. SO FUN, but man it’s going to take some more practice. It completely changes how I would usually approach digital art, but the results are pretty true to the real thing, I think. I recommend them highly! 
(Although I guess I could have maybe painted this with real watercolor in half the time haha HUSH)
