Pictured: Me.
We’ve not had the internet for a week now after our previous agent cancelled it and didn’t tell our new agent. We were informed yesterday that we’re not getting it back until Wednesday. The house is in panic and we’re all bored as hell and constantly trying to leech wi-fi from Uni or near-by Whetherspoons.
The good thing about this is that it’s making me actually work on my commissions as well as get back into drawing (all in good time, a month before I start year two of my Illustration course).
I’m finding it all too amusing that I’m updating the most on my blog in months when I don’t have the internet. Whoops.

Myself and ghoulkiss have been on a magical girl high recently; she brought over Rebellion and now I’m addicted to the OST.

Want this on a shirt, hoodie, sticker, etc,? Here~

I caught a shiny Phantump

he’s called Tree.~ 

I had forgotten about the book's portrayal of Father.
Asked by medimeedes

The book’s portrayal is really fantastic and I feel does him more justice than the movie. Then again, even the DS ending did him more justice. 8|

I was doodling realistic stuff when I was overly tired and it made me realize how much I miss drawing in a more realistic gritty way.
Whenever I roleplay/draw the Others in Coraline, I often like to blend them a bit? The basic appearance of the movie versions but with some aspects of the book-selves (Other Mother having no reflection, the Other Father’s slip-ups, etc.) and the same goes for the Other Father’s final form. Some sort of melting, drippy pumpkin creature.

Ok so I’ve been quiet about this for some time now, and I thought I should break that silence and make this public. (Hey other people are posting art PSA’s, this ain’t new)
We are Artists, We are many
Being a artist on Tumblr alone isnt easy. There are millions of other people  doing the exact same thing you’re doing. Amongst all of them you can be overlooked so easily. Now I am familiar with all those PSAs about not worrying about being popular and loving your own art. Thats all well and good, no ones debating that. But we artist want to share our art with the world. We want to show everyone what we can do.
The Wall
When we receive praise and love for our work, thats the best feeling in the world for us. We all have friends, fellow artists or not, that support us. But here on Tumblr, your art might not get pushed out into the crowd. For myself as an example, I get a 1 reblog for every 10 likes on something. And this is only including when I originally post it. When art post is liked, no one else sees it. Likes stay hidden and don’t appear on others dashes. (And yes, some blog themes do show likes, this I am aware)
Likes are good, but Reblogs do a lot more
When someone reblogs your art, a whole new set of people get to see it. Most of them are people who have never seen your stuff before. For example, whenever Carbines Official WIldstar Tumblr reblogs my Wildstar art, I get bombarded with likes, reblogs even follows! But before that, when I post it in the first place, not much happens. Dont get me wrong, I’m grateful I get anything, but feedback and notoriety is what keeps an artist like me going, and many others as well. Now I may understand that sometimes something someone draws isn’t your cup of tea, that’s alright! But even if you show a little interest, a reblog does a world of difference.
Support your friends, Support those who care
I know this is all sounding a little preachy, but it’s something I needed to get off my chest. There are no complaints, there are no orders, just a call out from all us artists. From the big and professional, to the small and unseen. We all want to share our art with the world, and it can all begin with a reblog.
( I dont think I need to say that everyone should reblog this, it goes without saying no?)


One of the most depressing things is being proud of a piece you spent weeks on, and then getting 5 likes and no reblogs, or a comment of ‘omg your art needs more attention’ and an added like.If you like the art, I can’t stress enough: Reblog it. That simple action can feed artists in the long-run.

£15 Sketchpage commission for a client (requested to only have the one sketch in the middle). He asked for Colonel Sandor Clegane and I happily obliged. I even watercoloured the Clegane flag onto his envelope.~

A5 SKETCHPAGE COMMISSIONS

Recently my commissions have been closed due to all of my free art time being used on a relatively big commission- a big /digital/ commission. Unfortunately my laptop is off for repairs and I won’t be getting it back for a good couple of days. I thought I’d take this time to open a few special traditional commissions.

For £10, I’ll ink-sketch on an A5 piece of watercolour paper. You give me a couple of characters, maybe a couple of keywords or topics, and I’ll draw anywhere from 2-3 to 7-8 sketches on that page. For an extra £5 I’ll fully watercolour that entire page with shading and background colour-patterns and such. Basically you’ll be getting a custom page of my sketchbook.

The best part about this: You’re open to having the original page if you want it. Shipping to the U.K. is an extra £1, up to £3 for anywhere else. All shipped orders will also come with a doodle on the letter and a thank-you note!

You can get more samples of my sketch-page work over here (although please keep in mind that it’s all old work in there; the sample attached is more current): Sketchbooks Albums

If you’re interested, please email buttons@rainbowjam.net

[sketchbook #3]

Four more pages! All of this is old stuff from earlier in the year during uni. It’s a nice mixture of personal doodles and work.
