New sidebar pic! Eugh, looks like it’s glitching pretty badly. Click on it to see it properly!

What IS Art?


I had a couple of hours to kill in the bath and decided to try and answer the unanswerable question – and found out pretty quickly why it’s considered unanswerable. Nonetheless, I came up with my own crude answer, and I’ll try to summarise the key points of my reasoning here.

Disclaimer: I have not read anything at all on the subject. This entire train of thought has probably been conceived of and subsequently debunked a thousand times before! I’m just a kid with some time to kill and a few ideas.

Jack


tablet contest thing

I entered an art contest where you had to draw one of a set of characters. I chose this melancholy gentleman – it occurs to me that this might be the highest quality I’ve ever achieved in a drawing? In any case, I do feel like I’ve improved a good deal over the past year. For comparison, here’s the glowing goop noodle I drew back in October:

no really

And lo, how far we’ve come.

Been practising drawing gemstones…

New Icon


noodle

I haven’t updated my icon for the four years since I first started this blog, but I think it’s about time, don’t you? At least now it’s something I actually drew.

Speedpaint to play with colours. Walk Like You is a good song.

Just dropping this off here. Happy new year everyone

#tw : the following imagery can severely creep people out.

Pyrope

Terezi, to complement the one I did of Karkat a week ago, which was so unbelievably terrible I won’t even link to it. Basically I did pretty much the same thing except without making the same mistakes I did with Kk.

I…I honestly didn’t intend for her to look this absolutely terrifying. I mean, I was shooting for a little creepy, because let’s face it, that’s who Terezi is. I don’t know how…this happened. Look, this was the image I was using as a reference. …She’s starting to creep me out a little, which is saying a lot since I’m the one who drew her. Eh.

So her horns look like paper tubes she stuck to her head, but overall I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

In other news, happy 11/11 everybody! For both the reasons that I celebrate – the reason that makes today a national holiday and allowed me to take the time to make this freakish portrait in the first place, as well as the anniversary of the Alpha Kids’ entry into the game. Yeah yeah so long story short I love Homestuck probably a lot more than I let on blah, I was going to do a bunch of doodles celebrating both occasions plus a Skyrim-themed one because there’s that too, but meeehhhhh

Bleed Like Me


Song is Bleed Like Me, which I can’t stick into this post directly because I’m a bankrupt hobo who didn’t pay for the space upgrade

Why Is Kanaya here, she isn't even relevant, idk

Dirk isn't a suit kind of guy but damn if he would't look good in one

I could just keep drawing Trickster Dirk forever, look at him, look at the *soda can* in his *hair*

Paraphrased from the original song but w/e

heart symbol instead of hat symbol because it seemed appropriate

I haven't decided which kid is Speedie

There was supposed to be Jack representing the devil in this one, what happened

feeeeeels

I love these kids so much but for some reason it's fun to draw them dead

clearly this is the panel I put the most effort into, 5 stars

actually this might be the panel I put the most effort into, it's certainly the most complex

my favourite panel maybe? idk I'm still in love with grimdark rose and suicide dave

I don't know why she's smiling

Dave's neck is slit because he died that way once (but dave has died so many times I would probably have to just scribble red all over the place if I wanted to be accurate)

still don't know why she's smiling

My very first Lyricstuck! I’m so proud.

Sorry about how it only starts at the second verse, I only drew the relevant parts. So just sort of…wait out the two extra verses? Uh.

Song is paraphrased in some places for obvious reasons. Not much though, if I rewrote it excessively it would be like cheating. It would be cheating. You have no idea how much I wanted to write in “TG” instead of “JT”.

Anyway. Really pleased with how this turned out, I was basically messing around in Photoshop, having finally gained access to the latest version, and it kinda snowballed. This is…possibly the best thing I’ve painted, ever? *shrug* I’m not counting.
