ninjapockyhunter asked: Oh, if it's not too much to ask, could you maybe do a tutorial on how the arm connects to the torso, and shoulders? It would be a big help!

I don’t feel confident enough in this to make a tutorial of my own—try these handy refs/tutorials!

alternianclockwork asked: do you have any tutorials on legs and overall body positions? (I'm lazy and always end up drawing people standing straight up :P and I need to work on some stuff) :)

Legs I can do, but as for “overall body positions”, that’s something best learned by practice.  Tutorials don’t help too much.  I recommend checking out life-drawing sites or martial arts videos you can pause in the middle of!

dcupsofjustice asked: do you have a tutorial or smth on your new style of coloring w gradient?? cos im unable to watch your livestreams ((???)) to see it in action :o

Does this help at all?  I’ve been thinking of making a legit tutorial sometime but I don’t really have the time or energy for it rn. @u@

Anonymous asked: just gonna mosey on over here, since were talking about bipolar disorder? a lot of people in my family have it and yes, the highs ARE NOT the same as being happy. you basically feel invincible and do whatever the heck you want, without regard for other peoples feelings, health, etc; its actually quite terrifying to be around someone like that because theyre just so intense about everything and you feel you need to step out of the 'kill zone' in order to not get hurt. idk i just wanted to share,,

I understand wanting to share, in the knowledge that despite the fact that you’re mainly here to confirm the previous asker, you seem to have personal experience with this, which is valuable!

(A reminder to everyone, though: I’m not a conduit for the education of the masses—if I were, my inbox would never be empty… @u@)

senkapyralis asked: Hey toasty, serious question here, it is about drawing software. I recently acquired, (hehehe, big words) a intous pro and have to software to draw with. any recommendations????????

I hear SAI is great—and pretty cheap, all things considered.  FireAlpaca is a free download, and of course the Photoshop programs are expensive but worth it.  I use CS6.

I’m not really the person to give rec.s though, I haven’t used that many art programs in my life!  I got upgraded directly from Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0 to CS6, can you imagine? @_@ The difference was crazy…

Anonymous asked: also, about that post on "what to say to a person with x" - another blogger has mentioned that the bipolar entry is totally off-base. a lot of times, "highs" can be just as bad as lows, and extending a high is just... incorrect, because they don't equate with happiness. okay, just thought i should mention. you responded to the earlier ask very maturely, as well, and ty for that :)

publishing as a PSA, I guess?

NP man, I’m (mostly) over getting offended about being corrected.  Life’s too short to spend time hindering personal education/growth.

I get all my usernames by combining interesting words in a way nobody should have thought of.  If anyone ever needs an untaken url, consult me and I’ll toss out some combos.
