Pay it Forward challenge help!

So I've been kinda asked to a part of the Pay it Forward challenge. Here's my problem, I need three people to draw a picture for who are willing to draw pictures for three other people! Is anyone willing to help me out? If you are just comment that you are and what you'd like me to draw for you!

Thanks in advance!

Any good coloring tutorials?

So....I'm getting tired of not being able to color and make my art pop. Basically my art itself is progressing and my coloring is not.... So, so any of you know of a coloring tutorial/style that you think would help my art and my own personal style? If you do would you link it in the comments on this journal?

All help would be appreciated!


Sorry guys/ 10 Free sketch requests open!

Sorry I haven't been very active lately guys. I just haven't had the time or motivation to finish anything digitally lately, but I haven been doing a lot of pencil sketches I just don't find them worthy enough to post online.

So, since I really want to post drawings again I'm going to join the bandwagon and offer a free pencil sketches to the first 10 people to comment here! Man I hope people will take the offer. -_-' So....yeah there you have it!


P.S. Oh! Just to warn you the sketches will be what I get the motivation to do. So it can range from a full body sketch to just a bust shot.

Random Updates!

'cause you all TOTALLY care what's been going on with me.

Well, I just got a job recently so most of my after college free time has now been taken up, and finals are closing in, so lots of things are going to be due soon. For example two of my music classes require me to memorize songs and stuff for their final so there goes even more time. Basically I'm saying that for this next month....I really don't have much time to do anything. I'll be lucky to finish that WIP I posted a couple days ago. (I'm determined to get it done before a week goes by. If not shoot me.)

What else....I don't have many good ideas for fanarts or anything lately. I've been drawing my OCs a whole bunch. So if you have any suggestions of fanarts you would like to see me do just shoot me a comment. But just because you comment necessarily mean that it will happen.

Ummm...yeah...my feet hurt from my first day at work today...but that really doesn't mean much. Now, I'm going to head off to bed....I have an early day tomorrow. (School just needs to be done! >_< ) Well, till next time guys!


I've found it!

I have officially found what I want for my birthday....or once I raise enough extra money that I can go out and get it. This is going to be totally nerdy and you'll think I'll completely lame, but that's okay.

For the longest time now I've been a pretty big fan of TMNT, a lot of the merchandise is really expensive and completely out of my range. One of the things I've really wanted for the longest time now has been the original comics. I thought all hope was lost until I discovered that they they have started to be compiled into a hardcover collection! ANNNNNND~ I'd be in my range to go buy if I can earn a little extra money (Or can possibly wait until August when my b-day rolls around) Oh goodness I'm so happy! I don't know if I'll ever get-----no, I don't know WHEN I'll start getting them, but now I have a goal! Yeah!


P.S. Sorry for not being very active lately! I'll try really hard to post more, but I've been working on a pretty big project lately in hopes of getting a scholarship.
