i haven’t forgotten about the fanart requests i took last weekend, my tablet is just… rejecting life… it works for about ten minutes before the light starts flickering and registering input that isn’t there

Did you close your store? :C

i did! i found out that RT doesn’t allow sales of fanart of their IP so i went ahead and closed my store. sorry about that!

oh man i love all your art so much; if it's not too much trouble, could you show us how you paint armor (specifically rvb armor) or maybe your process or some tips?

laksjdf thaaanks! —i’m just going to nerd out a little bit though bc i love your art too it’s so cute ;;

i’ve got some process and breakdown pics in this tag and this tag! i think they cover the basics of how i approach rvb armor, but i’ll always try to explain specifics if you or anyone else has questions about a particular aspect of armor painting. 8)

anyone going to fanime this weekend? i’ve got a pile of little lieutenants to give away—

i don’t have a table but i hear there will be meetups! or if you’re wearing rt merch/cosplay and an awkward asian kid asks you who your favorite lieutenant is, you might get a present.

Good morning! I know you said you aren't taking requests at the moment, so this is just a question. Are you going to do more Freelancers with their state flowers? If yes, could you tells us who's next please?


i was planning on it! but i put that series aside for a bit and i haven’t decided who i want to work on next. i’m open to suggestions though—

ETA: i’ve done florida, north, and south already, but i’m going to work some more on florida for this series i think.

in your tutorial about edge drawing one of your steps is highlight raised edges, what do you define as raised edges?

i don’t know if these images will really illustrate what i mean (and maybe ‘raised edges’ wasn’t the term i should have used really!) but—


what i meant was that i tend to put strong, thin highlights on parts of armor that have a sharp corner/edge. so on that screencap of york, you can see how just the ridge of his shoulder plate has that thin, bright highlight from the light source. on my locus drawing, the highlights define the three dimensional form of that area. (i think.) but i hope that makes a little more sense!
