Short Comic – Detangle

‘Back from the countryside and finished this short comic today 😀

I kept the colouring style simple and basic. I tried to resist getting carried away and making it detailed, ehe…It’s a bad habit of mine to suddenly make everything detailed when it’s not necessary.

Not as appealing as I’d like it to be but it’s a start, I guess.

LEMON CREAM PIE

Hello.

This chibi art is my excuse to draw a pie I recently came to love (and crave!) with my favourite ship.

So the story is, I tried some Lemon Cream Pie a few months ago and I never expected to end up falling in love with its taste and velvety texture, haha. I was never a fan of lemon-y desserts like lemon cakes, lemon squares, etc. because I couldn’t imagine eating something especially a dessert that had a lemon taste. I always thought that lemons are only good as a drink (lemonade) or something to accompany a seafood dish but this pie changed my mind. It was sooo scrumptious and smooth I ended up eating probably more than half of the entire pie, eheh…^_^;;

Anywho,

I love citronshipping so much that whenever I see lemons or any fruit resembling citron fruits, my mind imemdiately goes to that ship, haha.

And drawing food is relaxing so why not make an artwork of a favourite ship PLUS a favourite dessert?

fem! angst

Hello.

I’m trying to get back again into things. Like experimenting, posting unfinished, rough works and their likes. I struggle too much with perfectionism but I’m slowly letting go of it.

It’s okay to make mistakes and post super rough works.

Here’s one below 😀

It’s not really explicit or graphic. Just a bit of nudity.

Royal Purity [COMIC]

I really need to be quick with drawing. ORZ

Thankfully I’m gaining back my momentum so I hope I become as fast as I was before all that stressful crap happened last year and be more productive and post more art. ᕦ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)ᕤ

Sooo….

This AE comic idea came from an old bbc documentary entitled, “Pedigree Dogs Exposed.” It’s an old documentary from 2008 but I only watched it a few weeks ago and I recommended it to Rin right after. It’s common knowledge by now that mutts are generally healthier than purebred dogs but it was still a very interesting…or rather, appalling and eye-opening documentary.

I always find it weird how cat owners from my experience don’t really give a crap about their cat breeds while dog owners (like me) fuss about breeds, lol. I get certain breeds have some history to it (working dog breeds for herding, etc. ) but the whole pure breed standard stuff emphasis on Pure..kinda’ seems problematic to me especially regarding the flat faced dog breeds (pugs, french and english bulldogs, etc).

Anyway, sorry for getting carried away,

the entire idea of purebred, purity or pure blood made me think of the Ancient Egyptian Royal Family who were…. inbred irl. This comic was mostly to poke fun of it. That, and I despise monarchies. It’s strange how me and Rin were talking about inbred purebred dogs and then it went to poking fun at royalty, lol.

WIP

So I have been idle for a week. I apologise for that. ORZ

As always, was occupied with rl stuff. I often end up collapsing in bed right after those,forgetting to wash my face, too ugh. But I’ve been working on more comics lately and dabbling with different hobbies during some spare time. I’m not as fast as before but I’m trying my best to finish projects as soon as possible.

It’s been three months of hell (since December 2021) and my mental state isn’t exactly in a good place. Losing two loved ones in a span of a month and a week has been very overwhelming and traumatic for me.

It sucks that I’ve planned so many personal projects this 2022 only for them to be disrupted because of unexpected tragic events. Sigh, it’s so discouraging when the year didn’t start off as I wanted to last year, but I’ll have to do what I can and adapt to these changes and…I think I can make a good start this March.

It’s not too late to regain my momentum and resume all those projects,

right?

Anyway, here’s a WIP of some comic I’m planning to finish this weekend. 🙂

i need to improve more in drawing.

chibi de-rusting comic [citron ]

Hello.

I spent the entire week mourning the passing of my beloved dog so I apologise if I haven’t replied or posted anything lately. It’s been very difficult to adjust to this new reality without my relative and my pet. I’m still grieving obviously but I’m feeling better than before. I’ve been exercising more and de-rusting with drawing.

I admit, I am super out of practice with drawing. I lost my passion for it after my relative’s death and this loss became worse when my dog died. I even wanted to delete all of my blogs/social media accounts after finishing the remaining commissions. I couldn’t bear to finish the Blood Plus comic or just look at it because I was working on it when I was told that my relative was intubated and in a critical condition. Everytime I see it, I just get flashbacks of that scenario and it pains me when I get those.

I ended up having an existenstial crisis after their deaths. Reflecting on my own mortality and re-examining what I want to do with my life, lol. I’ve been super clingy with my family and other pets, too. I wanted to spend more time with them because….you never know. (aka catastrophic thinking)

Anyway, I tried to de-rust myself with some cheebs. It’s actually more detailed colour-wise. oops

I wanted it to be simplistic, just like a regular messy doodle but I wanted to also do some colouring/painting warmups so I went crazy with glazing and using different tones, values etc, whatever could help me regain my momentum.

I didn’t like the result ORZ. Welp, just need more practice.

hobo doodles

I’m an idiot for putting so many washes on this paper, lol. You can see the red ink (the 2021 thing) bleeding through the page because I treated this as a thick watercolour paper for some strange reason.

It still managed to hold well, though. That red ink was the only one that bled through the page. The rest didn’t so that’s a plus.

Yep, I can’t wait for September 1 so I can buy 2022’s hobo planner, lol.

Not going to lie, it curbed my chaotic and messy mentality and mannerisms. I was able to write personal thoughts out and draw daily this year (which I thought was impossible for me) so I had to stash and save up for a 2022 version. ^^

The price makes you motivated to not waste your money and draw or write something each day, lol. I could not bear to miss one page . But it’s reasonable considering its like 365 + pages of tomoe river paper and a nifty planner and sketchbook all in one. (It won’t be able to handle alcohol based materials so no copics/promarkers and sharpies if you don’t want it to bleedthrough!)

The thinness of a 52 GSM TOMOE RIVER PAPER!

yyup. Hobotecho’s got themselves a loyal customer, heh. ^^;;

Snore

I realised that I haven’t posted and drawn as many personal art these past few months due to very hectic rl stuff earlier this year which is quite frustrating. My output has decreased quite significantly compared to last year so I thought of doing daily weekday doodles starting this week.

My goal is to draw anything, be it fanart or original art, a messy sketch/doodle, painting, comic or just a WIP/thumbnail and upload it here on WP, tumblr and twitter from Mondays to Fridays. ^_^

….hopefully I meet that goal, gah. I have to. ORZ

Anyway, here’s Citronshipping gag strip. 😀

Below is the thumbnail/storyboard of the comic. 😀
