herebechickens asked: Hi there! I just wanted to say that I came across your awesome art on tumblr not too long ago, and just recently discovered that I remember you from about 5/6 years ago in the Yugioh GX fandom as well! <3 You were my favorite GX fanartist, and if you have time for a request, I'd love it if you'd draw some GX for old times sake. :3
OH MY GOD yugioh dm/gx was my first fandom and acccck some of the stuff i did was so weird and embarrassing omg are you kidding me!!! i left that part of my life behind…. not rly…. but seriously tho thank you and wow crazy that you found me again!!
haha well actually i was rewatching some episodes of gx last month and i wanted to try drawing some of the characters again. maybe later when i’m on summer break and have free time
but oh my god i’m like cry laughing fucking yugioh gx
more sketchbook bc i’m actually in a fairly rotten mood and i needed to blow off some steam
Anonymous asked: Hi There! I'm really shy and I never really done this ask-thing, so here's me doing this for the first time. lol. and I just want to say that I am very inspired by all of your art work. you are the best! I love every single one of your art work, and it's because you have a very unique drawing style, and it is an awesome style! so I just wanna say to you, "Thank You!" whenever I saw your art, I just go and pick up my pencil and paper :D I Love You And Your Art! You're the best! °•(>̯┌┐<)•°
weeehhh thank you so muchuchuch! messages like this make me really happy so thanks for messaging me. no ur the best anon, keep on being awesome
neonangels26 asked: How do you draw noses so good (improper grammar?)?? I mean, they're PERFECT.
*so well EHEHEHEEHE sorry anyway
thank you!! oh man i’m always really pleased whenever people complement my nose-draws cos i totally used to do the anime thing where you just like vaguely indicate the nose with a line and orz. but i mean i dunno how to explain it. in high school i spent a good year and a half trying really hard to move away from my initially anime-esque style so i tried adopting a very realistic style; it was hella awkward but i took what i learned from the experience and applied it to my stylized stuff and yeah suddenly noses were super important to me. sometimes i feel like the way i draw noses is actually kinda weird?? bc i put a lot of emphasis on the tip of the nose, but that’s just what stands out to me i guess
so yeah i used to not draw the noses like ever then made myself draw the noses a lot and i found a certain construction that i liked from observing the noses and now i draw the noses a very certain way
lulutumbles asked: are you going to be in nyc this summer?! I'm doing the SVA summer residency in illustration and it'd be SO cool to see you (and fawn over your art irl...)!!
no sorry!!! i’ll be moving back home for the summer because i have things to do and it’s more affordable…
i still wanna someday have some kind of tumblr meetup though forreal but yeah really sorryyy;; thanks and have fun though!!
buhs it’s weds so here’s a sketchbook scan

Anonymous asked: hey there! I was wondering where did you get that awesome "walls" sketchbook?
i personally got it from an art store back home. uh i get this question A LOT and can i just say you can probably find it easily by looking up “walls sketchbook” on google or amazon like i’m not annoyed or tryna be catty or anything i’m just saying
Anonymous asked: I got into HSPVA for visual arts and I am a really good student. I am taking Geometry right now (I'm in eigth grade) and I really want to go to a school with really good academics but I love art so much... Is HSPVA the school for me?
well it’s hard for me to say bc i graduated from pva a couple years ago and frankly a lot has changed there since then (to me, anyway). my experience was that the academics….. varied? like, i had some really good teachers, some just-okay teachers, and some actually pretty shitty teachers. a lot of people have retired or left since i graduated so i can’t really say what the academic scene is like there anymore. so yeah imo hspva is the def the place to be if you love art, but the academic classes are probably gonna be hit and miss
aaaaaand wednesday night sketchbook page
/retreats back into shadows
some homework: animals from the natural history musuem
superfast unfinished thingy i did at like 2 am. someday i’ll get back to this shittttt
yeah hi tumblrs!
so i’ve been crazy busy with school lately so that’s why i haven’t been uploading that much stuff or answering messages. i’m trying n dyin to finish my second year film (which i’ll post once done) on top of all the other work i have to do, so don’t expect much from me for the next three-ish weeks. once i’m done with school i’m going to start right away on stuff to sell at comicpalooza and over the summer, so that’ll be my focus in may. and then after that i’ll start taking commissions and ???? that’s the plan
so yeah. thanks to you folks who have stuck around during my inactivity, since usually i post and reply to stuff a lot more. i’m really… glad hahaha. good stuff to come soon, prrrrrromise but yeah, school is kicking my ass rn brb
