This is my art blog! By 'art blog' I want to focus on my own creations, whether its fan art or original, or showcase the works of others that I find interesting. Think of it as a digital sketch book with clippings interspersed of what inspires me.

You can find me on either Deviantart or LJ

I also do commissions!

I also love to answer any questions you might have!

Just Announced: Rat Queens gets a Webcomic!

kurtiswiebe:

I was minding my own business on the internet today when I ran across this tweet from Rat Queens’ artist Roc Upchurch

Check out the new #RatQueens webcomic with art by the always amazing @TessFowler! http://t.co/k8epdO3hm7
Roc Upchurch (@JohnnyRocwell) April 24, 2014

To verifythat this wasn’t a terrible prank, I checked out the Rat Queens FB page, which supported the claim. Here’s the preview:

Just a one off from a script that we never got to before we launched the main series. We did 5 others total, and this is the sixth.

Likely the last, sadly. But, you never know!

Someone requested a hand tutorial, so I rambled. I didn’t even get to everything I would like to, so here is a part!

Thanks.  I’ve been consciously trying to get better at hands for ten years, and I still suck, so I’m always grateful for new tutorials.  Someday, one diagram, one line is gonna click it for me.  This one’s great.

Please tell me I’m not the only person who started studying my hand while reading this tutorial.

On a side note: The second panel stating that hands are not flat… that flat hand is how I’ve always drawn hands and, unsurprisingly, it doesn’t work the way I hoped.

Surprisingly though, I found it in an official drawing book. Though it had to do with drawing dragons instead of people, so naturally the method of drawing is a little off. ANYWAY! Hands!

afrofabulous asked: Do you think that 28 is too old to try to pursue a career in art on your own terms? I wanted to be a 3D animator for as long as I can remember, but when I got to college I realized that going to college for it wasn't for me. The school and the environment was horrible and I was completely uninspired to continue animation. I went to school for fashion illustration after that and I although my teachers thought my art was truly beautiful, I didn't get to finish because I started a family.

(cont.) I became inspired again recently and I have been drawing and sketching everyday (for the past two years) as well as learning animation on my own. I am heavily influenced by your webcomic, but I just wanted to know if it was too late to pursue my dream without school and by myself at 28?

I started TJ and Amal at 31, with a weak art education and zero experience in comics, so you can probably guess where I stand on the matter!

I wish our culture didn’t place such heavy emphasis on “making it” in your teens and twenties; that the (justifiable!) attention paid to prodigies wouldn’t set “prodigy” as the norm.  This kind of BS does everyone a disservice.

If you have a dream and the resources/ability to pursue it, there’s no reason to sit it out just because “everyone makes it by 25.” Because everyone DOESN’T make it by 25. Some do, some don’t, whatever.
What’s more, age can bring experience that will inform your work — work you couldn’t have made at 20 or 25 without that experience.

Sometimes when I get discouraged about this stuff, it helps to remember an anecdote I read a few years ago—
A retiree mentions to her friend that she’s considering going back to college and finishing her degree.
"What, at 65?" says her friend, "You’ll be at least 40 years older than everyone else in class!"
To which the lady replies, “oh, so you think I should wait till I’m 70?”

There’s no going backwards.

Good luck!

James Murphy was 31 when he started LCD Soundsystem.

Jonathan Coulton was 35 when he quit his software job to do music full-time.

There is always time.

Tea Spirit of the Month - February - bed time blend
This herbal blend goes by many different names, but generally includes peppermint, lemongrass, chamomile, lavender, hops, etc.
I really like this type of herbal tea. While I rarely have trouble sleeping it’s nice to take a break from being caffeinated some times. c:
