"i’m sad and idk how to feel better"


"i don’t know what to draw"


"i always mess up"




Whenever you feel sad about your art, listen to Bob Ross.

Better words were never spoken about art.

Princeless – Book One: Save Yourself (2012)

Story: Jeremy Whitley , art: M. Goodwin

Avaliable at comixology / amazon

"And this one—-"


Protective clothing that actually protects is such a novel idea.

I featured the first three panels waaay back, but the broader context makes it even better!


Just because a warrior is a woman, doesn’t mean they have to wear a chain mail bikini? Like, they could wear real armour? That’s an amazing idea!

The penny drops. Pity it’s such a small penny and such a deep hole.

I can see today is the day when I am going to Reblog My Husband A Lot.

"That’s not the least painful thing it does." BWAHAHAHAHA / OW OW OW MY NETHERS TWINGE JUST AT THE THOUGHT.

So I really wanted #kellysue to see my costume… But was cut from the contest. So here we are: WWII Captain America (who rated a hug) and Agent Peggy Carter. :)

A comic I drew on fighting procrastination.


I’ve been working on my Procrastination Problem. I’ve got a ridiculously busy Fall term coming up. So I’m drawing inspiration from this guy and his awesome comics.

I really need to print this out and put it on my wall or something, cause this is a major issue for me. Perhaps I’ll get a calendar too.

  • Question: Quick question: I like making characters but hate doing backgrounds. Any tips on how to make them more enjoyable? (Also your stuff is amazing by the way) - Anonymous
  • Answer:


    Hi!  Thanks!  And yes, I have tips.  First of all (and I’m not saying you do this) but backgrounds are never going to be fun if you try drawing them AFTER you’ve already drawn your characters.  It’s really the FIRST thing you need to consider because it’s like 70-90% of your entire composition!

    Second - if you like drawing characters, look at the background as if it’s a character!  Everything in there can help tell the story of your characters.  What kind of environments would your characters inhabit?  What sort of props would they surround themselves with?  If they’re in a building, what is the style of the architecture?  Also, you can draw environments just as dynamically as you draw characters - with motion, emotion, personality, all of that!  The background is also one of your biggest tools for directing the viewer’s eye in your composition - it can point them exactly where they need to look!

    Third - the same as you would when you’re drawing a character, don’t rely on stereotypes or icons!  Not every tree is an oak tree.  There are so many types of trees.  But you have to look for them, and study them.  Be as specific as you possibly can with everything in the environment, otherwise it will look boring and generic.

    Most importantly, keep drawing and challenging yourself to try new things!  Good luck!

A friend requested I make this, and so here it is, and I offer it to anyone who needs it, with all the authority vested in me by whoever vests these things. Print it out if you need to.

The best art advice ever given to me—ever, ever—was “Don’t be afraid to make bad art.”

You will make a whole lot of crap in your time. Some will be truly awful and some will be merely mediocre. And that is totally normal and totally fine and for the love of little green apples, just keep going, because that’s the only way I know to get to the good stuff eventually.

(I normally feel horribly egotistical mentioning my awards, but I think this counts as using that power for good.)

:’D i feel better now

WE HAD THIS FAILING EXERCISE AT SCHOOL - after you don’t succeed very well with arting, make your most successful pose and with your most successful voice say “I FAILED” \ o /

Oh, wow! That sounds fantastic, actually. Wish my drawing class had that. (In ceramics, we could just ritually smash the piece, which was cathartic like whoa.)
