Hello! I'm a newer follower of your work, and I just really wanted to compliment you on it! I love your use of color and big bold lines * o * Your art has been the first in a while that has made me like... Have a stomach ache? Out of how excited I am to look at it?? Hahaha! I was wondering if you had any tips for lineart, particularly being able to make it look so fluid! It's something I've been working with after being a painter for so long and never doing it. I'd really appreciate any advice!

thank you so much, what a crazy reaction to have whoa!! ((you’re a painter… can you teach me how to paint…… orz))

honestly I just redraw lines until I get them right l’: the best advice I can give for fluid lineart is to draw in big, fast strokes! since they’re drawn so quickly it’s likely that you won’t nail the “perfect” stroke the first time, so it’ll take a lot of patience and ctrl+z-ing. unu another thing that’s gonna happen is you’re gonna make strokes that are too long and overlap your other lines. well that’s what layers are for! you can avoid that issue by drawing each line on separate layers. you can just merge them into one layer after you’ve cleaned them up! it’s much easier to clean up one line when you don’t have to worry about erasing part of another line that it touches! here’s a gif that hopefully conveys what I’m trying to explain:

I dunno what program you’re using, but a word of warning: Photoshop is complete JUNK as an inking tool. Paint Tool SAI is a much better alternative from what I’ve heard, so definitely download that! you can achieve much crisper lines and it has a setting that stabilizes your strokes to make them smoother! I’ve never used SAI, but I’ve heard tons of good things about it. Manga Studio 5 is actually what I use, which also offers crisp lines and has a stabilization function. the name might be a little deterring, but I really do love it! it’s great for people with a Photoshop background like myself because its interface is modeled like Photoshop’s, so I transitioned pretty easily into it. you don’t have to buy it when you have SAI as a free option, I’m just sharing what I use!

hope that helps pal!

I’ve been super busy these past two weeks helping out with my brother’s and his then-fiancee Jenn’s wedding, which was this past Saturday!! They asked me to draw some cake toppers for them depicting moments they shared together (they didn’t actually take off in a rocket though UH). The wedding was wonderful and there were a lot of tears lmao I have so many emotions. I love my brother and Jenn so much ):

Since every day of the week seems to bring me a new birthday notification on Facebook and a new piece of Steven Universe fanart on Tumblr, I was jointly inspired to throw some colors on a birthday card I’d made for pockypalooza some months ago.
(I feel like rapidly aging myself when I think about how long it’s taking for these new episodes to air…)

showing off this spectacular drawing that my pal Rachel made for my birthday a couple months back!!! I LOVE STEVEN UNIVERSE, YOU KNOW ME SO WELL!!! ヽ(;▽;)ノ she gave me the original black and white ink drawing in person on the day of my birthday, but I could not be happier with either the original or colored version—I love them both to pieces!!! ;;;___;;; in case I didn’t make it clear enough in person, I ADORE this drawing and it really was an incredibly cool surprise to receive!! thank you so much again WOW
