ok, i’m going to try to be more active on here this year. that’s one of those things that i said i would do. so to like, help me along or something, you can send some suggestions of things or something to my ask, either the one for this account or for my main (which is a completely separate entity, and i am more prone to check).
i’m going to try to finish like… a thing a week if possible. but i’m going to start posting my doodles and stuff to this account, so people on my main don’t have to put up with that breaking up the cats and shenaniganry.
LET’S FUCKIN’ DO THIS, DAMNIT.
2013 was NOT AN EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD YEAR FOR ME EVEN DOODLING WISE?
HERE’S A SKETCHDUMP OF LITERALLY EVERYTHING ON BOTH MY COMPUTERS. TWO OF THESE WERE FINISHED, BUT I DELETED ONE BECAUSE I HATED IT.
ANYWAY, 2013 BEST OF SKETCHES???
yo here’s my headcanon fuckin’ levi without the blood and guts and stuff
some old school underground thug ass days.
man, i hope this shit hasn’t been ruined by the backstory manga or something.
anyway, i utilized my fancy dancy history/anthropology degree to come up with some fancy ass tattoo ideas that might be common in a fairly landlocked medieval type society thing to design this horrible thing. i might actually do a better version someday when i haven’t been drinking heavily, and my spirit has not been crushed by soul sucking menial employment. who knows.
ok, so hotitan drew a thing. and then i really wanted to draw a thing too. AND LET ME TELL YOU THAT IT IS REALLY HARD TO COME UP WITH THUG TATTOOS BASED ON A CIVILIZATION THAT HAS BEEN LIVING BEHIND A LANDLOCKED WALL FOR A LONG ASS TIME.
AND THEN OTHER THINGS HAPPENED BECAUSE I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THUGS, TATTOOS, AND THE IDEA OF BARE KNUCKLE BOXING OK.
THESE ARE MY HEADCANONS, LET ME SHOW YOU THEM
(also, this is technically part of my improvement meme thing because i have a really hard time drawing anything unless i plan to go places with it, so here’s the reference i used.)
IMPROVEMENT HELL DAY 1: LOOK AT THAT SELF PORTRAIT.
Are you tired of feeling like your art just isn’t improving? Do you want to do a 30-day challenge that’s actually useful? Welcome to 30 Days of Improvement Hell. >:D
I made this because I’ve been feeling super ‘blah’ about my art these days, and I needed something to kick-start myself. Who wants to do this with me!? Start now or whenever you can (now you procrastinators!). Challenge yourself and have fun at the same time!
Tag your posts with #Improvement Hell so everyone can follow along and see each other’s awesome artwork. I may even create a blog and reblog them! :D
What are you waiting for? START!

Draw a figure that’s in action, using a reference - link to reference

Colors! Pick a color palette, and paint a scene/character/object using only those colors (some blending allowed). Bonus points for good use of lights/shadows.
Draw and color a scene/object/character - no lines allowed! (aka - lineless art). Don’t forget light and shadows!
Draw a scene/character in a style you’ve never drawn before. If emulating an artist, credit+link. Bonus for color style.

sometimes, i listen to music and i get these really awesome ideas for comics and stuff, but i have other things to work on, so i doodle something up, or LEAVE MYSELF CRYPTIC MESSAGES, and months later, i come back and try to decipher what the hell my past self was talking about
all i know is that i was listening to this song, and i think i was contemplating the three years on the run or something.
