So in addition to 32 completed 3D head sculpts (and their matching biographies and concept scribbles), several dozen doodles, a few color experiments, and I honestly lost track of how many movies and episodes I’ve watched for research, all of the notes and little one shots/blurbs/etc. I’ve written to accompany my ridiculous November project ALSO added up to 50,007 words, making me an unofficial NaNoWriMo winner this year.
There was a lot of multitasking.
I think I’m going to go sleep the rest of winter away.
More hand study rebloggin' because I SUCK at drawing hands.
another wip of my flick redesign … I was too lazy to trim out the blobs of colors I used for color dropping (mischief can only hold like six colors at once so w/e), but I figured I’d start actually putting some signatures into my stuff even if it looks and feels stupid to do (who’d want to steal MY stuff, eh?). NO IDK WHAT THE TRIANGLE ON THE BRIDGE OF HER NOSE IS I WAS SCRIBBLING AND STUFF HAPPENED AND I WAS LIKE W/E.
anyway. yeah. more stuff while I do crazy month-long “why do I exist?” projects of craziness.
if you’re wondering why everything is so matchy matchy with her clothes, honestly, she’s a sorceress who favors color and light. she likes stuff to match and she can literally “a wizard did it” up some matching color schemes.

Anonymous asked color-palettes:
Color Theory-Challenged Anon here again. What I meant to say was that I’ve read on color theory and I know about the complimentary colors, color wheel, color harmony, saturation, etc. I understand all of that, but I can’t seem to apply it for some reason. Any tips on how to make it work?
' o '!! Lets see… well it all comes down to practice and experimentation. You pick out colors, combine them, see what works, and somehow it develops into 'I know how to use colors!!'. I think this might help a little if you’re unsure of how to use pre-defined palettes. But, um, for creating your own palettes and utilizing them in your work… Try this out:
Thing that I left out b/c I’m bad at tutorials:
When picking colors to shade/highlight with, going directly to the left and/or right of the color wheel can give you good results. Because I used a red/red-violet, I went to the color on the left (blue/blue-violet) and used that to shade and highlight the dog c:
Remember: Experimentation is key! The more you play around with colors, the more you’ll understand how to use them. Hopefully that sort of helped ; o ;
RREBBLOGGABLE BY REQUEST i added a bunch of color adjustment things i do sometimes ?
The entire writing process is fraught with perils. Many writers would argue that the hardest part of writing is beginning.
When asked what was the most frightening thing he had ever encountered, novelist Ernest Hemingway said, “A blank sheet of paper.”
Other writers believe that ideas are easy, it’s in the execution of those ideas that the hard work really begins. You have to show up every day and slowly give shape to your ideas, trying to find just the right words, searching for the right turn of phrase, until it all morphs into something real.
Then comes the wait to discover how your writing will be received. Chilean author Isabel Allende once said that writing a book is like putting a message in a bottle and throwing it in the ocean. You never know if it will reach any shores.
So just how do you go about facing an empty page, coaxing your ideas into the world of form, and steering the end result toward shore? You can start by studying the tips and advice from writers presented below.
