California Red-Sided Garter Snake. Absolutely beautiful!
Gorgeous! I kind of want one, but you know what? It looks nice right where it is.
hi guys! this is a comic i made for a final in my comics in literature class. we had to do a research paper on a topic we’d discussed in class and then accompany it with a comic with a relevant subject. my paper was about hyper-sexualization of women in comic books, but i decided to broaden it out here as well as personalize it and make myself the subject and discuss something i’ve been subjected to in the convention circuit and on the internet as well as thousands of other women, as well as give a cue to thought about how the comic book industry as well as the video game industry and even just media in general (all of which are male dominated) push such ridiculous pressures onto girls and women.
also, it feels kind of silly to have to add this since i hope it’s obvious, but i am very aware that there are men that don’t subscribe to this attitude, and am incredibly grateful that these issues are brought to light to people other than the ones that are subjected to it.
anyway haha i have literally been staring at this for 9 hours i don’t even know which direction is up anymore. thanks for reading!!!
And I’m sure there are plenty of guys already saying “SO YOU WANT ALL WOMEN IN COMICS TO BE FAT AND HAIRY?!” while completely missing the point.
Some of my favourites after putting skeletons together this semester. There was a deer, but I learned something about animals as big as deer: you just can’t do a nice temporary mount with them. At least, not easily.
What you’re looking at: Day-old rottweiler puppy skull in a still life with coyote, rabbit, muskrat, and gopher skulls, rat, house cat, and pitbull puppy.
Just a quick lil’ sketch to prove that I’m not dead, just busy with school work. This is from a personal/portfolio project I’m doing that’s essentially concept art for a fake Silent Hill/Assassin’s Creed crossover game.

LMAO I’d rather rip off my toenails and pack the pink, unripened, raw, bleeding flesh with salt before I’d force myself to illustrate with illustrator.
u cant ues photo shoppe its not 4 draw!!!1
While I agree that Photoshop was intended to, well, shop photos, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make art with it.
I do all my painting in Photoshop Elements, version 2. And I only use 2 or three preset brushes. Guess I’m not an artist.
No see, you can only make ILLUSTRATIONS in Illustrator, duh, it’s right in the name.
Welp, time to inform all those professionals who make their art with Photoshop…
Oh no I guess both me, and the teachers I’ve had in college that told me ps was a professional standard tool for illustrating were wrong. Shit what do now.
Crap…you mean we’re only supposed to use programs for what they were originally intended? Does that extend to other media, too? Guys…I think we’re supposed to stop making collages (magazines and photos are for looking at, not getting cut up for artwork), making installations (rooms weren’t meant for becoming art), using found materials for sculptures (eg: that bicycle tire you found was meant for bicycles, and damn you Duchamp for making people think that anything could become art), etc., etc. Because we all know that artists are never rebelliousand always follow the rules.
CANT REMEBER WHICH NUMBER IM ON but the Dullahan girl. A young girl from the 80s that lost her head after sticking it out the window of a bus. Now she shows up in the back of buses and when a kid sticks their head out the window to joke around she holds them so they end up like her.
Because people look at that and none of my other stuff 8T Idk man Id just like people to look at my newer better stuff not just that old sm stuff.
Ditto. I left because you can’t do mass deletes and didn’t want to go through and delete all my old stuff one piece at a time, so I left a journal entry telling people to follow me to Tumblr. The result? Hundreds of likes and follows…on DA because of some SM doodles, and as far as I know, not one person actually following me here to check out the new stuff.
I did…this…a while ago. It’s, um. It’s something.
I am actually really enjoying the concept of hip-jaws, though. Not done terribly well this time around but it’s quite an appealing thought.
