I feel like I should at least post something to let you all know I haven’t faked my own death, again o_o
By now you guys have probably noticed that I’m not one to blab on about my personal going-ons online. Since I haven’t been in the mood to draw lately because for some reason these final weeks at my job have been draining me completely there wasn’t much to post. But, I am alive, I am entering my final week of employment (YAAAY) and have a very fun illustration job going on that I can’t talk too much about yet. I hope you guys have been well while I tried to hibernate the weeks away! ♥
Also! The kitty is fine again! Important stuff XD
Dusted off the ol’ Cintiq and am doodling on the internets, feel free to drop by and call me names or something. I’ll be working on the mockup comicthings I posted earlier this week, so it will be a study on how not to do comics, mostly. I already have all 3 of my imaging programs open haha XD
My body does this cute thing sometimes where it goes “I DON’T NEED NO SLEEP” and I wake up at ungodly hours, wide awake. Today is such a day. At the time of writing is it 4:48 in the morning. So I’m just going to catch the 5:37 train and get to work super early so I can leave early too XD
We work independantly so we can start pretty much whenever we like and as long as we put 8 hours of work in they’re fine with it. One of the perks of being an office drone for a webshop, I guess. Still very much not regretting my decision to quit though, only a few more weeks left :D
*gasp* you’re right, brb chopping off all my characters’ limbs and noses
Just remember that I love you okay? Youre art is lovely and while everyone can always improve, youre doing great.

Anon needs to learn to stop being such a prick and grow a pair. If you cant put your name to your words, dont send them. >:| I think your art is awesome rory!
You guys are so awesome! I wan’t upset or anything but you’re totally making my day :DD
… considering a lot of what you draw is highly stylized or in SD / chibi / anime style im having a hard time seeing how everything is blatantly caucasian?
moodymarshmallow replied to your post: so whenever you draw a poc its just a caucasian with brown skin huh&
I always thought that Dadu looked more Indian that anything else. I didnt think his features seemed out of place for that. Anon is really rather rude, though :/ I mean, seriously.
It might be a same-face thing? I never put much effort into diversifying the facial features of my oc’s huge amounts. Since the majority of what I draw is fair-skinned people I guess you could say my default style is caucasian peeps.
As for Dadu being indian, that might be influenced by the clothes I put him in? Kitt mentioned she thought Notangra was mongolian, both are pretty specifically what their concept costumes are based on XD
Original anon, I haven’t heard from you anymore and I’m not sure if you were trolling or hoping for a legit reaction, but please (and this goes for anyone) always feel free to give me feedback on anything. I get that the way people of color are portrayed is a really big deal to some people, even if I don’t give it much thought myself (being a silly white girl from the Netherlands).
Also this was my first rude-ish anon! I feel like I’ve unlocked a Tumblr achievement~
Wow anon, I’m really sorry you feel that way. Please understand though that this is not me being racist, and more a product of my artistic limitations than anything else.
I guess this comes from the Notangra and Dadu pic I posted yesterday? And maybe the Dadu spam before that? They are people from a fantasy setting though, and not meant to really reflect any particular race accurately. For me it’s more about “how do I make this character look cool and interesting”.
(I’m replying from my phone so sorry for any autocorrect errors that may have snuck in)
You had a contract, right?
Ha, well, I don’t want to get into this publicly but the whole thing was shady as hell. Should have trusted my gut feeling but I didn’t lose anything (except some time I guess, that I enjoyed). Didn’t send out any high res or anything.
