It’s been a while since I drew a new picture of Jenn, so here she is in all her cheesy, Gothy glory!
I swear Jenn, you’re too brightly coloured to be a ‘real’ goth!
Maybe I should give her an ‘alternative’ colour palette in one picture all, red and black and proper goth!!
Honestly though, I love her this way.
There are several ‘nods’ to fandoms in here that I was once connected too (ish) the red and green arm bands being from Freddy Krueger and the Lament Configuration around her neck~
Also, needed a new picture for my page, as the only one that looked half decent before was the one of her in the world ugliest dress!!
I’ve known the artist who I did this trade with for a while now and it’s always a pleasure trading with them; they’re so, so fast!!
He asked for out fursona type characters together, so here they are. Jenn is clearly having a moan to the Dr about something!!
It’s a little more… rough and ready than some of my other works more recently, but I think that’s cause I’ve been starting to face burn out a bit – so I’m going to take a few days break from drawing and such for other people and see if just doing some fun and free sketches for myself for a few days helps that feeling.
I’ll let you know in a few days, but if anyone has any tips about burnout they’d like to share then please pop me a comment or two~
Date Report Card Name of Date: Ubercorn
Date Location: Jet Pad
Date Activities: Netflix and Chill; we ate pizza and listened to music; somehow I don’t think Ubercorn approved of my tastes.
Date Pros: Kind, Caring, Confident, Funny.
Date Cons: Long distance relationship, wildly different tastes (He wanted peppers on the pizza, ew) his talk of travelling made me feel a bit like a left out lemon, comes with attachments.
Second Date?: Wouldn’t be adverse to the idea, but I am not expecting that phone call anytime soon.
Just reposting the “First Date” pictures on here with their report card~
using my blog as a place to upload sketches and artsy works. I am honestly starting to feel less and less inclined to share my artwork on more community based places – mostly due to the constant feeling of self entitled idiots!
I recently did another Art Trade, my first one in a while after some sour feelings, and they post their half first. I am pleased, leave a nice positive comment – which was returned with someone asking for a specific pose and details for their half. I’d be fine with this, if that’s what I had given them, but they’d drawn my character flirting with one of their characters – which is already spoken for by another of their own characters. I know it’s all very silly and a minor thing, but I’m not about to have something that I find fun dictated to me like that. That’s called a commission; besides, I already got most of it done.
I’m all for giving like for like in trades.
I don’t know, I just feel all very negative about the whole art trading and being a part of a bigger community with art at the moment and while I know I could use a Tumblr or a twitter account to share everything with, I feel it’ll also give my blog a bit of a direction as well – which it has been lacking lately. It’s a shame really, because other than trades going sour I’ve been really enjoying drawing again. It’s been great to be able to reconnect with people and share doodles and sketches with them. (And even better to see theirs too.)
I will undoubtably miss a lot of having a wider community though, the nice feedback, the feeling of being a part of something bigger and the seeing what other people do. I feel like it’s a big decision right now and I am feeling somewhat unprepared in making it. Maybe a bit of a break will just do me some good?
