Repair Her Armor: Clothes I'm forced to wear in the majority of MMORPGS -
[Please take note that the commentary is just for fun. Bunch of sarcasm. Don’t take it too seriously. I am getting tired of these outfits, though.]
1. The classic Bikini Armor. If you’re lucky you might get an actual shoulder-pad! If the designers even bother doing something more than…
Oh, hey, hello.: A Regular, Regular Show Storyboarding Day -
Okay, so as many of you may know, I work at Cartoon Network. I’m storyboard artist/writer on Regular Show. I’ve had people ask questions like “What happens in a typical day over there? What do you do all day? You just write jokes or what? Is that even actually a job? Go away, Owen.”
The answer is…
I should do something like this when I start work on Ultimate Spider-Man….
Don’t piss girls off!—Alanna, Kel, Daine, Aly, and Beka belong to Tamora Pierce :)
I thought I would try learning how to do a GIF animation…It was fuuun…
Starving Artist's Sage Advice: Tips on beating Art Block -
Art Block is (obviously) a mental difficulty. It has a tendencey to spring out at the best of us when we least expect it. Professional artists are well aware of its existence.
But professional artists depend on their ability to produce work every day. Art block cannot be allowed to take over.
So, here’s some advice on how to get over art block when it happens.
Do something quick. Do lots of quick things. Keep working, no matter how horrible it looks to you, and keep moving. This helps you get through the “bad art” and back into “good art”
2. Switch things up.
Use a different media, do a life drawing, make a switch from your usual method. Help yourself get into a new mindset. Try something new. Sculpt.
3. Draw (here we go) fanart. (Or just pick up a random idea from just about anywhere)
Take a character or a scene or an object that you like, or borrow another artist’s style for a day. This can help if you’ve got a dry idea well. Another method is to take something that someone else did and redraw it in your own style. Go to a random character generator, or type in a letter to Google and make something out of that. Create a world based on an object at hand. This doesn’t need to be good, just let yourself make something silly. This generaly helps when you feel completely devoid of inspiration.
4. Take a walk.
Get away from your studio for a little while. Observe the world carefully. You might get inspiration from a leaf or the way a person is dressed orthe tilt of a person’s head. Get out of yourself for a while and refresh your view on the world. It’s hard to be an artist and a complete shut-in.
5. Hate it? Look at your old work.
You’ve come a long way since three years ago, remind yourself of that with a quick tour through the old work. It helps you regain your perspective and your determination to become better.

Little Art Reference things: Varying Your Body Types -
By me, Sara D. (Heh.)
I think it’s very important for artists to vary the types of bodies they draw! Not only does it add visual interest and diversity, but different body types can enhance your characters! (Plus it’s more realistic; when was the last time you walked down the…
