So I was thinking...

....of getting a tumblr account. You know, so I can post my sketches of pics in progress, or just stuff I don't feel like posting here. Which let's face it...it's a lot of stuff But, I'm not really sure if I should, or if it's worth it. My other problem is...I'm not really good with HTML codes and stuff so I wouldn't be able to customize it without some serious research or someone to help me, but anyway....

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. What do you guys think?


Sure, why not?

Since I did this with Ronnie's world might as well stick it here.

My kitty! <3

This is the first time in a few years that I've thought my 17 year old cat was cute, but today is special. For the past two months my cat has been meowing CONSTANTLY and today my mom discovered that on of his claws can't retract back in and had grown INTO his paw. Painful right!? Well she clipped the claw and pulled it out of his paw and he's been pretty quite ever since. And he's been sleeping on the couch next to me for the past hour or so. So I needed to take a couple pictures! I'm just going to share the cutest one (in my opinion) since I can't post more than on picture in a post.

See, 17 year old cats can still be cute.


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!
