Inktober - Week 2

Hey there, faeries!!!

Whoops, didn't mean for this to be posted a day late. XD I just drew the Saturday's artwork wayyyy later than usual, and then I wanted to hang out with my sisters. XD So, yeah, in the end, I didn't get on the computer to write. :P

ALSO, ON A SUPER HAPPY NOTE. I PASSED MY DRIVER'S TEST ON THURSDAY. (Yikes, I was so tense and nervous that morning.) YAYYYYYYYYYY. 

I NEED A GIF TO FIT MY MOOD.

EXO GIF, HERE WE GOOOO. 


THERE. PERFECT. THAT IS MY MOOD, YEHET~!

Day 7: exhausted.


This week's theme for me is books I think should be more popular. 

For day 7, I drew Serge from Disenchanted. He is my wonderful fancy fairy bae. And, sadly, he's exhausted a lot of the time. DX 

Also, I can't draw stellar wingtip shoes. Don't look at his feet, they are ugly. XD

Day 8: star.


This is from Lunar Chronicles, which I know is pretty popular, but it could use even more love. XD I drew Cress, cuz I thought stars and her match pretty well. C:

Never mind, *throws hands up in defeat* I don't know how to draw wingtips or bare feet. XD Cress's feet are kinda weird looking. Heh. (By the way, Cress's dress is supposed to be well worn, but I don't think it worked out so good when I drew it.)

Day 9: precious.


A Pocket Full of Murder is such a beautifully written book. Isaveth, the main character, finds paper, even if its just a bit of it, super precious. (She likes to write stories on those bits of paper. CX)

Heh, I seem to be drawing things I don't how to a lot. Now, I've drawn a bike, and I have no clue how to draw that. XD I had to look at the cover of A Pocket Full of Murder, which has a bike on it, to even get it slightly right.

Day 10: flowing.


Jack Blank is an awesome series. It has superheros, ninjas, and androids and a bunch more cool stuff. 

The girl I drew is a character called Allegra. She has this power where she can change her body's density and shape and stuff. In my drawing, I tried to make it look like she was opening a hole in her stomach to avoid the laser thing shooting at her. But it ended up looking way grosser than I intended. XD

Day 11: cruel. 


Now I've drawn Hook from Everland, a Peter Pan retelling. It's a really awesome steampunk book. <3 Hook is a little bit cruel, but I drew him because I think the world is crueler to him. Things just don't work out for him. XD

Hook has a metal arm, instead of a hook, by the way.

Day 12: whale.


Oh, man, I couldn't think of anything that worked for whale, so this one is a stretch. XD It's Nightlight from The Guardian series and he can fly and is magic and stuff. So I figured he, in some point in his life, flew over a whale in the night. Heh. XD

Day 13: guarded.


(Of all the drawings I've done so far, I'm happiest with this one. CX) 

This trio is from Sisters Grimm (one of my favorite series ever.). From left to right is, Daphne, Sabrina, and Puck. Daphne and Sabrina are sisters and Puck's a fairy. 

Sabrina's pretty guarded most of the time, so that's why I drew her. I drew the rest of the trio just because I wanted to draw them for the longest time. 

- - -

You know what's sad? The pen I use and share with my sister, Lostfairy, is like almost dead. DX It's my first artist pen I've ever used, so it's sad that's it drying out. But, thankfully, we have a set of pens with the same size tipped pen that hasn't been used yet. XD Whew. :P

Welp, I think that's all for today. See you all next weekend!!!!

What's your favorite Inktober prompt so far?

Inktober - Week 1

Hey faeries!

The first week of Inktober is over. I don't remember if you know this or not, but I'm doing weekly themes to go along with the prompts. The first week was movies/TV shows. 

Just as a side note, I'm super tired feeling today, so there won't be much to read for this post. XD And if it doesn't really make a lick of sense, I blame my overtired brain. U.U

Day 1: poisonous 


I really like the anime show Snow White with the Red Hair. I haven't watched the whole show yet, but it's amazing already. This is a drawing of Shirayuki, the main character, with a poisonous apple.

Day 2: tranquil


This is such a stretch for the prompt, tranquil; but I couldn't think of anything else. Big Hero 6 is one of my all time favorite family movies. (Baymax is so funny.)

Day 3: roasted


It's Barry and Wally from The Flash!!!! *does jazz hands sleepily* They always roast each other; so I thought they would work for that prompt. :P (I missed my chance to do an angry vein for Barry, though. XD Phooey.)

Day 4: spell


So, without meaning to, I sorta did a different style from my other drawings??? XD I think I like it, though. :P I also didn't mean for Draco to look dead inside, but, again, I really like it. XD This is probably my favorite drawing I've done so far.

It's hard to read what I wrote on the drawing but it says, "serpensortia" on top and "expelliarmus" on the side. Those are both spells from Harry Potter.

As you can see, this is my first black and white drawing I've done for Inktober, and I think I'll keep doing it. I need more practice drawing like that, anyway.

Day 5: chicken


I figured Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon was pretty much the definition of chicken. I don't know if he was necessary scared of his own shadow, but *shrugs* anything could've happened. XD 

Day 6: drooling


Bleghhhhhhh, this is the drawing I did today, I was not feeling in the drawing mood. You can tell I was rushing it by all the crazy messy lines I drew. XD 

I can hardly tell what I was drawing. It's supposed to be Sokka (from Avatar: the Last Airbender) in a sleeping bag, but uh, yeah, it looks wrong. XD Sokka looks like a baby. o.O

Next week's theme is books I wish were more popular. 

How's Inktober going for you? And, if you're not doing Inktober, how's life going for you? XD

Sunday, September 30, 2018

So, I'm Doing Inktober...

Yup, I'm doing it. I'm going to do Inktober. It'll be crazy. O.O

For those of you who don't know, Inktober is an event that a bunch of artists do, where, in the month of October, they draw one drawing a day. Normally, it's a drawing in ink, but it doesn't have to be. It can be online, it can be on paper, canvas, whatever you want.

I'm going to try to do all my drawings in ink. I think I'll color some with markers, but I'll probably leave it black and white for the most bit.

I'm also going to be doing the official prompts for this year. (Which, again, isn't necessary, you can come up with your own prompts.) 


I'm going to try to post what I've drawn once a week or so. That way you guys stay updated on how it goes and you also get to see the art!

I hope I stay determined enough to do this!!! XD

What are you doing for the month of October?

PS. I also made an account on a art site called Paigee World. Here's my profile link if you want to take a look!

The Free Commissions are Done!!!

Hey faeriessssss!!!!!!!!!!!! Imma backkkkkkkkkk.

And, yes! I finished making the commissions without you having to wait months and months!!!

(Sorry, forgot to get a link, I did NOT make this GIF.)

That's me celebrating. CX

Ahem! Anyhoo, before I show you guys the art you requested, I need to tell you something. This is VERY serious. *almost starts laughing* I have made the bestest artwork you ever seen in your life. I'm being absolutely serious here. Your mind is gonna be blown when you see this.

Are you ready?!

I don't think you are.

But then again, no one is ready to see the gloriousness I have created.

If you die from this, I'm sorry.


TA-DAAAAAAAAAAA. It's my fabulous Bendy and the Ink Machine art!!!! XDDDD 

Isn't it perfect? CX 

What? You don't like it??? DX

(Again, forgot the link. DX)

Haha. Sorry, that was a bad joke. *shakes head* I don't know what I was doing. 

Well, I made that Alice Angel and Bendy artwork as a joke once and I just felt like posting because why not? XDD

Okay! Now on to the commissions! 

I only actually got around to finishing the first one and getting the pencil version of the second commission done when I was in the waiting room at the appointment. XD So I drew the rest at home. :P

Snowlondon (sorry, I could only find your Google+ account to link back to you!) requested first, and she asked for her original character, Seraphina.  


Seraphina is a mermaid, but I'm not sure if I made her mermaid-ish enough. DX I'm not a fan of the tradition mermaid outfit so I made up my own. I tried to have her sleeves be like a gauzy, see-through material, and I think it worked...? XD 

And, from what I can tell, she seems like a determined girl! I hope I could put all that bravery and character into her expression. :) 

I hope you like it, Snow! :D

Now, it's Sarahkey8's art! Sarah also asked for an OC of her's, Kaylee.


I had no clue what kind of swirls and polka dots you wanted, Sarah! XDD So I hope this is what you had in mind. Also, I hope Kaylee looks like she has a Ty Lee personality. CX

Heh, the raven earrings went superrrrr well. XDD Sorry, I don't know how to draw tiny ravens. They ended up looking like pointy blobs. >.< 

Lately, I've been testing out shading skin with different colors besides my usual. (Which is tan and more skin tone-ish colors.) I shaded Kaylee with red and then faded it with an eraser and colored lightly over it again with a tan colored pencil. I thought the red would bring out the pink in the shirt.

I hope I did Kaylee justice, Sarah! C:

Josiah's is the next one! He commissioned me to draw Shovel Knight from, you guessed it, the game, Shovel Knight! XD


Welp, this was strange art to draw... 

I don't know what to say about the art, but Shovel Knight looks like a fun character. I'm curious to see what his games would be about. :D

Erasing the certain parts on his armor to create the shine was really fun. And it was nice not having to draw eyes. (Arghhhh, getting the eyes to be the same shape is hard. >.<)

I hope you like seeing Shovel Knight in my art style, Josiah!

Last commission is Lostfairy's!!! She asked for Ghirahim from Legend of Zelda, but she is writing a fanfic with him in it. When she requested that he have the personality from her story, so he's, uh, kinder?? I guess?? I don't know! XD


Man, I love the story Lostfairy is writing, it's so good! :o And, so it was fun to draw Ghirahim from it. 

Ghirahim was the commission I struggled with the longest because I couldn't get his hair to be something I liked. XD I think I'm finally happy with the end product. 

I also tried something new-ish (for me, at least) with the parting in his hair. I did tiny, short lines in the direction his hair would go instead of drawing just a line or two. I really like the way it looks, so that's something I'll be doing a lot more. I'm not sure if that technique works just for guy's partings or not. 

The shirt that Ghirahim's wearing is super fun to draw. I like how it's based on Link's Skyloft clothes in Skyward Sword but the colors are different. The red and black really work for Ghirahim's character.  

Heh, it was a little strange to not draw an eyebrow. And then shade on his eyelid without having the eyebrow to base it on. 

Psst! Can you tell that I left Ghirahim's lips white like they are in the video game? XDD

I hope I made Ghirahim a fraction as good as he is in your story, Lost! 

Yup, that's all the art! It was really enjoyable to draw!!! (And, it forced me to draw a couple females, 'cause lately I have been just drawing guys... Heh. XDDD And I don't want to get out of practice drawing girls. :P) 

Thank you all for requesting the free doodles!!! I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them. <3

- - -

If you got the free art, you are allowed to repost it. But, you must follow these two rules:

1. You MUST leave the watermark on it.

2. And you must give a link to Faeries and Folklore.

That's my conditions for reposting the art I gave for the free doodle commission. 

And, just to be clear, if you want to repost any more of my art or art that you didn't get from the commissions, you must ask me for permission first!

Welp! That's all I have to say for today. CX 

I hope you have a lovely time zone!!! 

What do you think of the GIFs I posted in the beginning of the post? XD Too weird? (More like, too cute, right? CX)

Want Some Free Art? - Doodle Commissions

Hey faeries!!!

I'm going with my sister and my mom to an appointment next week (appointment's not for me), and that means I'm going to be waiting in the waiting room for a few hours. And, so I was thinking I would bring my doodle notebook and draw. Ya know, so I won't get bored. XD

But, sometimes I run out of ideas for what to draw quickly... And that's where the free art part comes in!

I'm going to be doing free art commissions again!!!! I'm accepting a total of five commissions this time. First come, first served!

COMMISSIONS ARE OPEN UNTIL SEPTEMBER 17TH AT MIDNIGHT.

I'm just drawing profiles of people, so it'll just be shoulders and up. And, it's going to be doodle-ish, which means it's not going to be perfect. XD (Then, again, when is any of my art so-called "perfect?" *thinks* Is there such a thing as perfect art, anyway???)

Ahem!

Here's the basic form to fill out if you want a commission:

-Name:
-Male or Female?
-Skin tone:
-Hairstyle and color:
-Eye color:
-What's their personality?
-Outfit (basically just say what shirt they wear XD):
-Accessories (e.g. necklace or earrings):

-Bonus: if you want a small phrase or their name on the artwork, write down what you want here:
-Another kinda bonus: if you want the person doing peace or a similar hand gesture, let me know (I might not add this last bonus depending on what I feel like :P): 

I'm great with drawing OC's but if you want fandom stuff, too, I love drawing that, as well.

I'll try to post all the art within the next one to three weeks. (Hopefully you'll see it sooner than three weeks, but *shrugs* sometimes life's kinda busy! XD) Oh! And here's a link to another blog post of mine in case you want to see what kind of profile doodles I've drawn in the past. XD

Anyhoo, that's all I have to say, so toodles!!!! I can't wait to see what you'll request!

Art Commission Slots:

1. SNOWLONDON - CLOSED

3. JOSIAH DYCK - CLOSED

A Sorry of Sorts (that turns out to be a comic)

Hey faeries! (Boy, it feels like a long time since I've said that. >.<)

So I had written out an apology for being gone so long and suddenly I thought, "This would be way better as a comic." So after an embarrassing amount of time (3 or 4 hours...?) to make a short comic, I finished it.

I hope you enjoy it!



Now, I'm so tired, I'm not even going to make a proper outro. XDD So, byeeeeeeeeee.

Profiles - Oodles of Doodles


Hello, faeries!

I've sorta recently started a new doodle notebook/kinda sketchbook thing. XD I've been doing lots of profiles of random people. It's super fun to draw a profile because:

  1. It's just shoulders and up. 
  2. You get to focus on the face and hair.
  3. It's just fun, in general. XD
And it's nice to not have the pressure of making it look perfect because it's just a doodle.

I feel like showing you guys what my notebook looks like. I got for Christmas like... two(?) years ago. XDD I'm slow at actually using my gifts that I get. :P


Isn't it really pretty? XDDDD I really like the saying on it. :3

...

*takes deep breath* Okay, now on to the more interesting stuff. Art! :O 


This is the second entry in the notebook. (*whispers* First one was a little title/introduction page and is rather boring. So I'm not posting it. XD) This drawing is me trying to draw a whimsical girl. I was just trying different techniques for her eyes and stuff. :P 

*glares at drawing* The shirt looks like I was inspired my Barbie Fairytopia. *does a slow face palm* XDD


After drawing the pink haired girl I still wanted to draw but I didn't know what. So I asked Lostfairy if she had any requests. She told me I should draw Black Gryph0n/Gabriel Brown. 

So I did. XD 

I didn't have anyyyyyyyyyyyy reference photos. Uh, yeah, that's probably why it doesn't really look like him. Actually, on second thought! Reference photos of Gabe haven't helped me before so, I don't know what happened here! XDD

Okay, quick story! I drew a few of these doodles at family friend's house. And one of the boys there saw me coloring Gabe. And he asked if I did that just now. I told him yes. And (I think???) I handed him my notebook or I flipped the page to the next blank page. And he was, like, "Woah! You drew this yourself? I thought it was a coloring book!!!! :OOO" I'm like "Whut. da. heck...? @.@ Does this drawing look like a coloring page to you??! What coloring book would have manga profiles to color in?!!" XD I didn't actually say that to him but I thought it. :P In reality, I laughed politely and told I had drawn it. >.< 

Ahem! Anyway! XD


Next, I drew a vampire. Yup. I drew a vampire. Now I'm one of those kind of people... XD Just kidding!

I don't know why I drew a vampire, to be honest. XD *shrugs* Just felt like it. :P She's kinda cutesy vampire that wouldn't do much harm. ^.^


*talks in derpy voice and smiles a funny small smile* I attempted to draw a map. c: It didn't work out so well. :3 XDD


This is a vent doodle. I drew the hand wayyyy too small and pointy looking. So I made it into a robot hand and then gave the girl metal plating and stuff. XD So she started out being a normal girl and then turned into a homeless looking cyborg. XD Yup, cause, heck, that makes sense! O.O XDD


ZUKO, MY FIERY PRINCE BAE. <3

Lost requested this art, too. It's the stage of Zuko where his hair is growing out and it's really cute. It makes him look way younger. (Surprisingly, it was pretty easy to draw Zuko's hair! O.O Usually my short haircuts on guys look funny. But this time it turned out really really good! XD) 


Another day, I was bored and wanted to draw something, so Swirlshine got to request art from me. And she asked for a human version of her dog, Beauty. 

I like incorporating the animal details to the girl I drew. (I'm totally going to draw a lot more furries/shape-shifters now!)

Anddd, because I like sneak peeks and WIPs of art, I'm posting a WIP of a doodle I'm working on.


I'm drawing my new favorite Animal Crossing characters as humans. XD

- - -

On a side note, because this post was so long and had a ton of art pieces, I might do a really short post on Thursday or none at all. I just thought I'd let you know. :)

What's your favorite Nintendo game to play? Right now, Animal Crossing New Leaf is my favorite. ;)
