Q:I know you said that you just can't draw Andrew's face, but the drawing you just posted is PERFECTION. In my opinion he looks just plain sexy. *flies away*
Andrew is plain sexy, full stop.
Unfortunately, it’s Moriarty as a character that tends to be a problem. See, most of the time when I draw, I’m drawing characters rather than likenesses. And that’s where I’m getting tripped up. I’m not sure how Andrew, lovely, beautiful Andrew just transforms into Jim Moriarty because he really really does in such a spectacular fashion. THAT’S the real bit where this whole thing goes to muck.
Q:Do you know any good challenges? (besides the otp one of course) I need some practice but I'm lacking inspiration
Any challenge is good, really, but it depends on who you are. Drop into google “deviant art challenge” and you’ll see a list. Browse through and pick one. But once you’ve started, really really try to finish.
spottythoughts said: Wow. That’s an impressive list! Did you pick them up on your own primarily or take classes? What sort of translating do you do?
I have taken basic classes for most of them (hello elective classes and community programs!). But the local learning center doesn’t offer classes in enabling. That’s just natural talent.
I translate Spanish <-> English. For a while it was going to be a career path, but ultimately, I decided against it.
100years-to-live replied to your photo: So I was asked recently about using more realism….
OMG that is amazing! I can’t believe you’ve drawn this ‘while having a conversation’ and ‘not paying attention’. God, this is fantastic… You are so endlessly talented! May I ask how long it took you to draw this?
Maybe I should clarify that it was more like a group discussion.
And because of that, it took me about 45 min? I didn’t have a proper eraser either so I kinda had to live with the mistakes. Thankfully, I covered them up by starting SUPER lightly and then going darker.
And really, dudes, this isn’t about being “endlessly talented”. This is about 20+ years of drawing drawing drawing.
30 Day OTP Challenge
OTP: Sherlock x Molly
Companion piece: Day23: Arguing
Day Twenty Four: Making Up Afterwards
I’m not a Sherlolly shipper, I’m not I’m not I’mnotI’mnot FUCK
*goes back to read this series from the beginning*
I’ve always assumed that Sherlolly stuff would be Mary Sue-tastic and super fluffy…..but who gives a shit.
well, I have to say that I’m rather pleased that you are enjoying my work though I’m a bit…unsure about how I feel about your assumption of Sherlolly stuff being “Mary-Sue tastic”. Molly’s a wonderful character on her own and definitely not there for gratuitous fangirl wish fulfillment. I really don’t think that she’s any more of “mary-sue” material than any other character on the show.As for the fandom, there is some really high quality stuff being written for this ship, and I hope you get a chance to see it.
Also, I really don’t think there’s anything wrong with fluff. I love fluff. Isn’t there enough darkness in the world?
Q:You really have an amazing amount of potential as an artist - some really nice work! But, er...your animation needs work. A lot of work. Take a gander at the 12 principals of animation and give it another go; you've got such great stuff, I'd love to see you take another crack at it! Keep it up!
Thanks, Nonny. I am, in fact, painfully aware that I’m in serious need of study for animation, since the only training I’ve had for it is…well, watching movies.
As I said in the last post I made, I cannot consider any animation that I post to be even CLOSE to being considered complete. I really think that the first thing I need to find the will to sit down and figure out if I want to put in the amount of patience that animation requires.
Thankfully, I have been lucky to have friends that have given me a lot of wonderful advice (thanks tealin!), so we’ll see where that goes. We all have to start somewhere right? :)
Thanks for the recommendation!
Live long and prosper.
Q:do you do realism? just wondering :3
Only in my oil paintings.
Q:So if you're the secret cafe, are there off-menu items you recommend for customers? Kind of like how In-and-Out has off-menu stuff that the regulars know about?
Q:In-N-Out anon again. WELL IF IT'S IN THE JINGLE! But what should I order my first time there?
I would go with the classic. Order the #1 (double double) but ask for grilled onions.
Also, be sure to get yourself some animal style fries.
(if you order a shake, they are THICK, ask for a spoon).
Q:I always think if your posts shows up in the tag, they'll get more notes quicker and you'll get more followers than you already have.
Nonny, honestly, from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you for your concern about me.
But to be perfectly honest, things like notes and number of followers aren’t numbers I really care about.
I’m making my art and posting for whomever wants to enjoy it: even if that’s just one person. I’ve never liked the idea of “pimping” my blog or my work. If you happen to find it, that’s great, come on in and sit down and have a good time. If not, really, that’s just fine.
But again, I appreciate the concern.
Q:I just wanted to tell you that the amount of sass in your answers right now really makes me laugh and also that I love your art work.
HOLD THE PHONE.
IS THIS AN ART BLOG?
Q:I've never been to California. Is In-N-Out Burger all it's cracked up to be?
I’m the wrong person to ask, Nonny. Because being mostly raised in California, my answer will always be THAT IN-N-OUT IS WHAT A HAMBURGER IS ALL ABOUT.
IT’S IN THE JINGLE.
Q:How about pictures of coffee stains and rings on tables?
DO YOU MEAN YOU AREN’T USING A COASTER???????
