Hi. Thanks for glancing. This is a blog where I post my art and am wide open for requests (oh so very unlike how I usually am). I would like to begin some comics, getting around to it. I'm just a high school-er, so, don't ask me for anything TOO professional since I'm really just a loser who saved up for a tablet and got one like a month ago. Alas! Forgot to mention my other blog. Will figure out a link later, but I post all KINDS of random things on chernyye . Give it a glance if you like, it's probably even less amusing than my scribbles and I hope to baffle you.
been messin around with SKETCHBoOK PRO ahhhhhaahahahahah!!!
YEAH. Also, working on an easy art signature? harder than anticipated. I feel so grateful to have the opportunity to even touch this crazy stuff. I am not WOrthhhyyyy
The FCC sided with Comcast and decided to let ISPs censor the internet. The Internet needs to stop this from happening: http://cms.fightforthefuture.org/tellfcc/
Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee.  The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.
We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.
We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. 
This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

we’re almost 3/4 of the way there!! c’mon guys, every bit counts!
will it ever stop
fucking signal boost
IF YOU ARE NOT SIGNAL BOOSTING THIS YOU ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION.
IF THE U.S. FALLS TO THIS IT WILL OPEN OTHER DANGEROUS DOORS INTERNATIONALLY.
Last one, SIGNAL BOOST!!!
We do not normally post this content on this blog but this situation is dire please reach out where you can. If you think internet censorship and restrictions end with the end if net neutrality you are poorly mistaken. It will continue and more lines will be drawn around us. The worst part is is not being properly reported in the news and the average person is unaware.
more will be taken if you don’t stand up now

I wrote an essay for you D’: I’m sorry!
You’re so sweet and not a bother at all :D Sketchbook Pro is awesome, especially for quick digital sketching and color! I’ve always been a huge fan of how SB Pro laid out their interface as well, I felt like it was super user friendly to an artist and really great for a beginner artists and experienced artists alike, since the tools are very simple and straight forward.
The other program I just got recently and I really like is Manga Studio! The tools are super nice and function a lot like traditional tools, which I really like. I haven’t converted to it completely from Photoshop yet, but I’m getting a handle on it in the hopes that I can. Manga Studio is also super affordable too! It’s actually on sale on Amazon right now for only $30. Paint tool Sai I’ve never got around to using myself, I have a Mac :C but that’s okay, I’m happy enough with all the programs I do have.
With all that said- honestly if you get a good handle on one drawing program, learning other programs will come all the easier. Ultimately, while I personally have a preference for programs that give me the most traditional feel with it’s tools- the program isn’t what makes the artist. As long as you have the traditional skillset- knowledge of anatomy, structuring drawings and composing images, you can pick up any tool and any program and do amazing things with it. And there’s lots of ways to learn all those traditional skills as well :D I mentioned before a couple of life drawing resources I like before like the Force books and Character Design Notes, and I’ll add Andrew Loomis to that list, seeing as how I forgot him the last time I brought this up!
There’s no real right or wrong way to learn- but looking back on my college days, I think the best thing I did for myself during my years there, that has helped improve my skill and speed in the long run was to just take a step back from the computers and the programs and just draw in sketchbooks and take traditional drawing and painting classes. Don’t get me wrong- I don’t think traditional art is better than digital, Neither do I think digital is better than traditional. But my personal belief is that if you have the traditional skillset and know how, it can only enhance your digital work to it’s fullest potential. Traditional can completely inform your digital work, and visa versa actually! Sketchbook Pro’s Copic color palette actually helped me understand their different colors and what looks good together, so when I started buying more color markers for my collection I found it a little easier to place colors together and figure out how to blend them all thanks to SB Pro.
Whatever you decide to use, hell use them all if you like, just make sure you’re always enhancing your skills and your knowledge as an artist in general. And never stop carrying your sketchbooks with you!
Thank you for your question love <3 I know that was long but you asked really great questions and I hope I answered them well and you found it helpful.
THANK YOU SO MUUUCH!!! This is super useful. I ALWAYS try to have a sketchbook on hand and this definitely reconfirmed to me the importance of traditional along with digital. I am very excited to soak up like a sponge Andrew Loomis, wasn’t aware of that rad resource before. I have been so pleasantly surprised with all the awesome artists replying to my proddy questions! Thanks again! Much Love!!!
Ah look at the crappy water color art. My affection for traditional art is bludgeoning me. It’s all fun though. Crayola watercolor sets and ballpoint pens are where the magic is at.
Woop. Posted it to the wrong blog. Still mine.
