Oh my, just rembembered it’s okolnir (aka shilin)’s birthdayy! ;;; And I only had literally 5 mins to sketch something for her since I have an exam today ;;____;; fml!!! But I wanted at least say happy bday since I admire her so much

Happy birthday Shilin! You are one of my biggest inspirations, please keep being so awesome and have a great day!!! <333 ;A; now i have to hurry bye *runs away*

(ps: i feel sorry this mega-rushed sketch is all i have for you, but veloce means fast, so.. I’M SUCH AN ARTIST!!! ahah jk ;;)

thank you so much for the bday wishes and the sketch! way whatever you want about the sketch but I super dig the brush strokes and the nice soft muted colours, this is sooo pretty ;v;

It makes me really happy to hear that I might inspire/motivate people with their own works, I hope you enjoy all art gives you! thank you so much again and good luck to your exam DON’T FAIL BECAUSE OF THIS SKETCH


HAPPY BIRTHDAY okolnir!!!!!!!! u_u I’m so sorry I kind of got swamped with deadlines so it’s a bit rushed. BUT I LOVE AURESQUE SO MUCH. I want to do a proper drawing of her…one day….


THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE BDAY WISHES AND THIS GORGEOUS DRAWING NOA ;________; she looks even better now in all her coloured glory, you pull off her style SO WELL and just make me want to give her some painting love too! (not gonna happen)

thanks for being a great friend, cant wait to hangout again at nycc YES


the unseen poro is the deadliest

new painting from gf!! I am helping her sell prints at my shop and you can pick some up here :D http://shilin.storenvy.com/collections/523825-posters/products/9832456-zed-11-x17-poster

I noticed while I was painting that I basically drew this in splash art format, so I made this for fun!! no abilities because there’s nothing I’ve already drawn that I can use ): the original art post is here. at first I put her in the void since the shadow isles made the title really long, but then I remembered stuff from the void are generally like gigantic bugs… I was thinking she went to one of those places and came back with a lot more pushy friends and peer pressure than she went in with, probably plays like a combo of kass/lb as a melee burst mage

THIS IS JUST FOR FUN, NOT AN ACTUAL CHAMP!! veloce is a character from my manga Carciphona. template from http://www.deviantart.com/art/League-of-Legends-Champion-Template-328878519!


the most fucked up thing is that

emma watson




one of the most


men inclusive 


feminist speeches 


i’ve heard in the longest time, and the result? the result from these men who claim that they would be all for feminism if it weren’t for all “the man hating”? 


do not be fooled for one fucking second

you can be as kind, calm, attractive and male inclusive as they demand for our voices to matter and the result is the same.

these people do not hate feminism because it “hates men”, these people have historically and to this day hated feminism because it’s purpose will result in the taking away of their power.  

would velcrow be suitable—- (crow… blackbird… ill take myself out)

ok i laughed really hard for 3am

laugh with me



when u think yr drawing looks great but then u flip the canvas



the progress of book 5 seems to be just me killing myself over pages like these and posting photos of them in an attempt to convince myself that this is worth it ):

BUT I LIKE REALLY BIG THINGS and I chose to draw these pages on paper because I’m an idiot so there’s my downfall

work in progress

okolnir asked: HEY HELLO i read your cintiq woes and I'm sorry to hear the trouble ;-; if you dont mind me intruding, I personally prop it up at 75-80*, and a little further into the desk so I can rest my elbow on the desk, the pinkie end of my knuckle against the cintiq, and maneuver the pen using my first 3 fingers only, with the knuckle as my pivot. or for longer lines, my elbow as pivot. I feel like this would be a relaxed stance since very few muscles are actually involved in maintaining grip. good luck!


thank you so much Shilin! I actually haven’t tried this yet but it seems like an excellent idea (Ive had mine right on the edge of my desk so I’m sure that’s contributing to the soreness I’ve been getting in my forearm area) 
I’ll probably let my arms rest up for a little while and give that a try before I give up on the cintiq all together, because I really do love it and wish with all my heart that I could use it without ruining my arms! I’m also publishing it so that anyone else that’s dealt with similar problems might try it this way!

I’m going to reblog this here too since it’s posted, I hope it might be helpful for anyone who is fighting a downhill battle with their cintiqs or are looking for ideas on how to deal with such a big chunk of metal on their regular size desk! I’ve also changed my setup earlier this year since I took down my gargantuan desk and I want to share my current setup: (please ignore my tetris keyboard)

I feel that putting the cintiq up this way, rather than flat on the desk or at a lower (<45*) incline, saves space and prevents the user from hunching over the cintiq to induce neck/back/shoulder strain, as well as minimize your contact with the cintiq screen (for heat complaints), all the while still allowing you to rest the weight of your arms on multiple points, just as you normally would be able to if you were drawing on paper. when I need to draw pages on paper, I still have enough drawing room by shoving the keyboard in.

Blackbird: Fai-tality

Got our Carciphona photos back from when we very hurriedly debuted BlackBird and Veloce~! (And we were super shippy all day haha) 

We made sososooo many mistakes but thankfully we’ll be able to remake things (I just got a new wig that will be more accurate to Vel’s sephiroth hair lmao) and then we can reshoot with more accurate versions of these costumes. Also maybe next time I wont be so stiff @_@

Thankyou for writing Carciphona Shilin *^* Updates get my week started well <3

amazing cosplay of fancy veloce and blackbird!! everything is so amazing, the sash, the dress, the bandages, bracelet, boot armour WHAT KIND OF SORCERY DO YOU GUYS USE TO DO THIS??? ;___________; one day I’ll be at the right con to see these cosplays in person but for now I’ll just die happily on my tumblr dash

Thank you soooo much bloodycoffee and Fai-tality for cosplaying my babies ;___; everyone go look at their cosplay fb pages!!!
