Hey, I'm some dumb artist on the internet. I just do drawings and try to exist somehow.

I'm going to put this account on hiatus. Recently, I've been not the best and this place has not been helping me at all. I need to get away and probably find a better environment elsewhere. I don't know when I'll be back, but for now, I'll say goodbye.

All of my recent works (late 2019 thru early 2020) have been reuploaded! Of course, there's a lot of older stuff and OCs that remains only my Toyhouse and my abandoned [REDACTED] account for various reasons (mostly quality control), as of now, I'm currently done with all the old stuff and will now focus on new things.

Hello! Since my mental state has stabilized a bit since I made the previous news post, I'd like to say thank you to those who left critiques in the comments; I really appreciate it and I'll keep all of y'alls advice into consideration. Now the reason for making this is because I have a few points about my art journey thing(??):


  • I can do cel shading (I even have it in a few drawings) but I don't really implement it often as I should, mostly because A. I find it really time-consuming, especially if it involves patterns, textures, or gradients and/or I'm working on my comics (remember I'm the only person making that dumb animal comic and I don't have money or anything to hire someone) and B. mostly concerning my refs, I want to let people pick the colors easily and shade it how they want it to.
  • I take a long ass time to incorporate new techniques into my current way of drawing. I don't know how to do things at first, so don't be surprised if almost nothing changes for ages.
  • I am mostly self-taught; I have been privately studying and practicing stuff like perspective and anatomy. However, because for some dumb reason I can't focus or dedicate to one thing for long, it's a bit of a long road ahead.
  • Going back to the anatomy bit, I have an issue with seeing nude models most of the time. Though I'm asexual, I can handle sexual stuff to an extent. Too much at one time can be very overwhelming.
  • I have real life responsibilities and as such, I don't always have time to practice drawing. Especially since it's the last couple weeks of school and I have a couple a projects to finish and it's very stressful.
  • And lastly, my mental state is very unstable, especially with the current events. I have been trying to see if I could get therapy or a diagnosis, but right now is not really viable.

And so, I end this long wall of text of things that popped up in my head and wanted to share with the world, I guess. I hope you enjoy reading and enjoying things, even if they still have a long way to go to perfection.

I want to ask about my art for a moment....


How are you enjoying my art?


Is there anything I could do differently about it?


I'm asking because I've notice my art tends to get very low ratings (like below 3 stars) and I'm not sure what's the reason for this is. It's causing me no amount of stress right now and I'd like to find out.

I have reuploaded every single Mind Your Magic comic up to this point to NG. You can see them in the Mind Your Magic playlist.
