*looks up Time with Epona* yes okay true there is a lil smile there bUT STILL. I DECLARE THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE FANART OF BELIEVABLY HAPPY OoT LINK!

I started making such loud sad and pained noises about that last art piece that my mum told me to shut up but like y the tears are real. I swear nintendo hates Time, and there is such a shortage of believable art where he is happy that I have a picture of him smiling on my desktop BECAUSE IT'S SO RARE POOR BB. I don't think he even ever smiles in the game or official art this saddens me so

n-no friend don’t cry! D: sobs with you tbh….

NO HE SMILES OK look up pictures of him with epona, his horse makes him happy ; 3; sobs forever tho

I'm curious to know- was there a story behind that last drawing? (The sad on of Link) or a head cannon? Or was it just something you thought of and decided to draw? It's very pretty :3

ahhhh thank you friend! = 3 =

it’s pretty simple, basically just metaphorical tbh—just means that Link never got his childhood back D: Even when Zelda sent him home, he still has all of his memories from the future. I wanted to draw something representational of that, him holding the remains of youth because he can never regain his innocence. It’s his sacrifice for Hyrule, one much more subtle and more devastating than laying down his life.

*yELLS LOUDLY ABOUT SAD FANART* *STOPS YELLING ONLY TO START CRYING*

STARTS CRYING WITH YOU 

I’M SORRY FRIEND I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME

PLS FORGIVE

I streamed the ultra sad pic of time and bby time. loudly apologizes for the water mark. I didn’t know xsplit slaps on a watermark for local recordings :’I and livestream was being a giant tool and not actually streaming so i had to do it local and ; 3;

someone asked how i approach coloring and this is a good sum up of it. I WILL STILL BE ANSWERING YOUR ASK PROPERLY THO, I PROMISE.

Link’s childhood died the moment he took up a blade. Returning him to reclaim his lost time would do nothing to reclaim that which had been dead from the start.

Is the cintiq worth it? You have one, right? How big is it? c:

UH

is a cintiq worth it lets talk about this

I bought a cintiq because I work from home with a lot of clients and after 3 or 4 different illustration freelance projects I started looking lustfully longingly at cintiqs. I’d been saving money for a while and so last april I sprung and bought a 22hd.

i thought about the yinovas (or whatever), but I wanted to be super sure I had a product I would use and would keep well for a number of years. I talked to a bunch of people and played with the ones at the studio I hang out at. 

and they are a bunch of money ok like

so is the cintiq worth it

$2k is a lot of money and should be considered an investment, right, and so that’s what I did. I invested in my own career. I was having a super hard time (more and more) with regular tablets, and I hated how shaky my lines were and I really wanted to pursue precision and carefulness. which i still haven’t really pursued well 

basically I never would have bought one if art was a hobby, I guess. 

SO TO ME yes it’s 100% worth it. my line quality has improved like, 10 fold since I got one. But it doesn’t fix all of my issues and I still struggle with doing super clean work. character flaw sheds tear.

since I was at AWA behind my table, I did a lot of pen/pencil sketches and things, which i took pics of and posted to instagram. I thought I’d share them here! They’re super rough ”orz pls forgive.

condensed stream of Great Fairy Link from last night! Big thanks to all of you that came, ok? such sweet friends you are uv u

seriously i can’t think of anyone but friends that would sit and watch me redraw that eye 18 times.

In Majora’s Mask, Link goes in search of his bff navi, but he never finds her, so I thought of an AU where after he serves as the Hero’s Shade for Twi, he’s reincarnated as a Great Fairy to care for the fairies and for the heroes.
hella less scary than the OOT great fairy lets talk about that tho.

Agh first, I love your art! Makes my day every time I see it! :D You inspire me to be a better artist and make me want to improve more! Second, could you show a thing or two about wolves/k9s? I feel like I can only draw a side view of wolf faces or else it looks weird. Thank you so so much! :3 {also maybe something on paws?}

thank you so much friendo! such kind compliments!

ok so wuffs.  let me show you what i know.  I usually start with this:

image

it’s super shorthand and quick but my major landmarks are nose, eyes, ears and cheeks, I guess. In case that looks too simple…

image

this is what it looks like when I’m doing a more detailed pass. Sometimes I use the strokes as pupil directions and sometimes I don’t.

Paws are super fun though. Too bad I still can’t draw hands…so first you just make these weird club shapes…

image

and then make sorta squishy shapes for the pads/toes.

image

like this! claws are v important, and they sit close to center on the paws? so they’ll always be facing the middle like this:

image

anyways I hope that helps! most of the devil is in the details, so make sure to look at tons of wuffs ok?

Do you give yourself a set time limit when drawing?

not unless I need to be somewhere! or am being paid

yeah generally speaking I just draw and let the time figure itself out. Sometimes I do set up a timer to check and see but I don’t limit myself to that. I mostly just move on when it’s time to move on? when the drawing either fails or passes my scrutiny uv u

Have you ever used GIMP for art? If so, any idea how well it works with tablets? It's supposed to be decent, and I'd rather not have to buy (and learn) pricey software from Adobe if I eventually invest in a tablet.

When I was getting my macbook set up for artings, I tried GIMP out of desperation but never really liked it. I’m sure people make a go out of it, but I always ended up too frustrated. I mainly use Photoshop and SAI, but I also use Manga Studio. For budgets, I’d definitely suggest SAI and Manga Studio.
