This os the image I’ll be using for my first livestream. I plan on making it a simple gif too, her eyes blinking and the silver crystal glowing. I just finished the inks today but I won’t do the color livestream until later. I’ll post when I decide the day and time (it will likely not be until after my mother in law leaves)

I plan on changing the line work to some golden brown tones and maybe giving her body a slightly thicker outline to pull it forward from her hair.

Playing with my new waterbrushes today. They’re watercolor brushes with a refillable water reservoir inside the handle! Super handy!

Oh my… these sound amazing.

So my husband suggested I give livestreaming a try and I’m curious if any of my followers and friends would be interested in something like that.

I’ve never tried something like that out (though I have registered and downloaded the livestream stuff I need) so it might be sort of fun? I don’t…

Alright, I posted this last night but my question still stands. I’ve gotten a resounding yes from two people and a like from a third (which I’ll take as a yes) so, with my husband in the mix that’s at least four people interested.  At this point I guess I’m more curious then anything and I’m pretty certain that I’ll try livestreaming out (it will have to wait until my mother-in-law’s vacation is over as she’s staying with us and I think it would be harder to concentrate with her visiting)

Anyway, anyone else have any thoughts? You can message me or answer directly on the original post, or even just like this one and I’ll take that as a ‘interested’ vote^^

I’ve never tried something like that out (though I have registered and downloaded the livestream stuff I need) so it might be sort of fun? I don’t know.I don’t really like being watched when I draw but I think it would be pretty different since I wouldn’t be seeing any of the people watching.

I think it would really just be personal and fanart stuff that I’d draw for it, not any of my freelance work (at least not to begin with. That’s the sort of thing I’d have to ask clients individually about after all)

My account, though currently empty, is at www.livestream.com/kittyhawk to fit in with my website and business cards and what not.

Anyway, is anyone interested in something like that?

Playing with my new Surface Pro 2 a bit, just sort of sketched this out with no intention of going anywhere with it.  It’s going to take a little getting used to but I like it a lot so far.
Much like when first using a tablet it can be a little odd getting used to where the stylus shows up on the screen. This is less of a disconnect though as the stylus is directly on the screen but it’s still not the same as with paper and a pencil, of course.
I also have to find a good way to sit while I work. I think my lap desk will come in handy for that though. 
It’s already much smoother working directly on the screen then with my tablet. I can more easily create smooth lines then I could before which is a big plus for me.
All in all the big test will be when I start working on freelance tomorrow.  Just going to start with some simple color work I have to get done and then from there I’ll get into the more complicated works.
I think I will need to get a wireless mouse at some point. My husband has offered me his to try out but I don’t want to use it if he needs it. That can wait though. It would be nice to have but isn’t imperative at the moment.

Just found out that this apparel company, DopestThreads.com, has been lifting, using & selling my artwork without permission. It’s very likely I’m not the only artist whose art they’re lifting. I’m passing this around in case they’re using any of my friends’ and colleagues’ art without permission.

I was able to find their contact information. If you find your work and wish to let them know it’s not cool, message me.

Also, people who got/can find contact for Disney, Warner Bros and Cartoon Network legal depts might want to drop them lines, because I’m seeing copyrighted images being used and I’m willing to bet they haven’t licensed any of it.

This is Elan, he always looks rather dour and sleepy but he’s really quite amiable. He is the younger cousin of Domico and training to attend a school of sorcery.

I may not answer all questions, but sure.  I’ve been feeling quite isolated and alone lately.  This might help.

I am totally cool with making more friends through the vastness of interwebings

Ahko and Domico done in Colors3D on my 3DS!
I’ve been wanting to do a color piece with Domi for a bit now, having needed to work out his color pallet, and with my computer dead my 3DS was the easiest option (for playing with colors)
The color is a little darker here then on my system.
