People don’t always know the right way to talk to artists … so I made a guide. There’s a lot more I could have added, but these are the basics.
Some artists will draw your OC for free, but make sure that they are okay with doing that before asking. Otherwise, you’re being rude.

Seriously, don’t put yourself down to compliment others. That just puts them in an awkward position and stunts the goodness of yourself as well.

I hear that top one SO MUCH at cons.
Look, I get that people are trying to compliment me, but putting yourself down is really not flattering. Everyone has the ability to be amazing, you just have to put the time into it, and not say ‘I suck’. Or at least not out loud.
Also conversely, if you’re at the receiving end of the bottom one, especially the positive, constructive side, don’t be an ass about it. The negative one, just say ‘fuck it!’ and move on because those people aren’t worth your time. with the positive one, please, for the love of god, don’t take criticism of your work personally, but if you do ask for criticism, don’t hem and haw and make excuses as to why the critic is wrong. It’s an opinion, you have the option of not listening, but be respectful of those opinions.

Got Manga Studio 5 the other day and this is the end result of dicking around with it. I like the watercolor brushes. They kind of remind me of painting with gouache. I’m especially proud of how her hair came out.

Progress shot of next week’s LN page. It’s a big two page spread and I didn’t really want to do the whole thing digitally, so instead I’m doing it in watercolor with a little digital for some effects and the two panels with Pyrena in them.

I’ve been toying with the idea of possibly making charms or stickers for the cons for Lost Nova, so tonight I did a little possible idea for one.

This took me far too long to finish. A commission for Julie and Texas as The Bride and Bruce Lee.

Reblog for the day crowd.
