I’ve been neglecting tumblr for way too long (including my messages! Sorry, I will get to them soon D: ). To start getting into the habit of posting again, here’s an art tool rec post! Last week I had the privilege of visiting Glen Keane at his studio and he recommended this pencil for drawing. It was so smooth and buttery soft, I fell in love and immediately bought a pack. It’s especially great on animation paper/finer surfaces.
If you want to give it a try you can buy some here (this website is dangerous, it’s basically where I get all my brush pens)!: Mitsu-Bishi Hi-Uni
Whoops! Missed the actual day, but here are some belated Draw Your Cat in a Dress Day drawings (http://tumblr.beckyandfrank.com/post/87896872931/i-decided-to-start-a-new-holiday-today-draw-your). A most excellent holiday idea. The comic is how I imagine an actual attempt would go.
So I blearily checked my email last night and thought this was a joke:
I see this morning that my sailor moon piece got reblogged tons, but I can’t figure out who set it off. Where did everyone come from?
Either way, thanks! And happy Memorial Day (for those in the US) :)
Everyone’s been so nice about my wee foxes, I really appreciate it! :) Here’s one more, and there will be more in the future.
All of these were done with a kuretake brush pen and chartpak markers, with just a little gouache and colored pencil for detail.
Also, some people have been asking if I’ll have prints. I plan on gathering all of these into a little book for this year’s CTNx, and I’ll make some of them available as prints, too. Thanks for all the support, guys!

Lately I’ve just been using the kuretake disposable pocket double sided brush pen. It’s waterproof and dries fairly quickly…I looove it!

Feeding this poor neglected blog with my piece (based on Sailor Moon R) for the Magical Girl Heroines: Sailor Moon and Sailor Senshi show at Qpop, happening this Saturday. I’ve already seen tons of gorgeous pieces by amazing artists posted online, and I can’t wait to view the rest. Hope to see everyone there!

Kevin came out a little…wrong…
They never knew how to act around him.
(Happy Lunar New Year! Horses/Centaurs, it’s your time to **shine**…PS: did this as part of the sketch_dailies prompt)

Boo, I’m getting to this late! But in case you’re still interested, I usually use arches hot press watercolor paper (when I sit down and actually do a watercolor piece) and use these cheapo watercolors. Occasionally my pieces are just done straight into my sketchbook, though :)
