HOW DO YOU DRAW THIS PRETTY!?!?

paperdaf asked:

hi i think you are really really really really awesome. i was wondering a few things: - what do you recommend to people who are trying to become better at illustration? what do you recommend to people who are trying to get into illustration as a field? do you recommend art school or is it ok to do art on the side? also this is not related at all but since i think your art is really smart i was wondering how you deal with hard things that happen in life/break-up traumas and such. thank you

jilliantamaki:

what do you recommend to people who are trying to become better at illustration?

Don’t look at too much illustration. Especially on the Internet. Go to museums and read books and watch movies and talk to smart people and walk around outside.

what do you recommend to people who are trying to get into illustration as a field?

Do some research into the professional aspects of the field. Illustration is a profession. You might not like the lifestyle/realities of the industry. Or, I should say, industries. Editorial illustration is a whole different thing from kids books, for example.

do you recommend art school or is it ok to do art on the side?

Think long and hard before you go to art school, especially if it is really expensive. Especially if you want to learn how to make comics. Art school can be really formative but is not necessary for everyone. Most people that go to art school become hobbyists at most, and a lot of my professional friends never went to art school.

what are your favorite pens/pencils?

It’s kind of irrelevant. Poke around and find what works for you.

also this is not related at all but since i think your art is really smart i was wondering how you deal with hard things that happen in life/break-up traumas and such.

Thanks. Take some time to let yourself crumple in a ball and feel sorry for yourself for a bit. Then throw yourself into your work or passion so you don’t go crazy.

*ahem*  Back to art. 
I was sketching ghosts in December.  None of these took more than 90 minutes, so these ares real quick things.  I think I might redo the first one and I am definitely going to do more.
Ghost 1 died of a gunshot to the head.
Ghost 2 died of old age.
Ghost 3 hung himself.

I’m going to continue these ghosts during my Sunday morning streams.  I started starvation.

Away

So I sort of inadvertently disappeared.  I’m only saying this because I don’t want to seem like a jerk that is ignoring everyone.

I am not doing the least bit well.  Like at all.  I couldn’t even explain it if I tried.  It’s not like I am taking some sort of deliberate break from the internet…I just…can’t communicate in any way that makes sense right now?  Ugh, I can’t explain!  I’m just not working right.  I dunno.

Anyways sorry.  Please don’t think I’m a bitch.

I’ve been trying to keep up my twitter and livestream though.  There are links on my main page if you wanna check those out.

If you send me an ask, I don’t think I’ll be able to send any sort of coherent reply that means much of anything.  :( 

SORRY SORRY SORRY SORRY.

and thank you for following me and stuffs.  :3

Possibly sooner. I will send you 1 e-mail when I receive the charms and 1 more when I mail them out to you! If you’ve ordered my charms before: These will NOT look the same.

I spent the whole evening working on the fastenings for this costume.  I’m pretty proud of it—I managed to keep all the fastenings the show uses on Brienne’s costume without trouble.  The spaulders move nicely with me and keep me from staying in one position only.  I need to tackle the elbows and bracers tomorrow.

Morning reblob

This is the coolest thing ever!  :0  Look at what she did you guys!
