Ada & Lana -view fullsize-
So, I had less personal time that I expected to be able to solve the story for the comic of these two for Bolto’s Amorem et Mortem Anthology in a way I would be satisfied enough to make it in time. The good news is I’m still making it, thumbnailing and fixing the script, I’m thinking of making it black white red and gray shaded but I’ve yet to decide how I want to ink the comic, I want something bold and full of black that’s for sure. I’m thinking of a prequel story as well if I keep attached to these two as I’m.
Anyways I wanted to post the photo side by side because their height difference is cute and I’ve only posted some photos of these designs and a pic of Ada.
Previous pics with these characters 😼 😸 😹

I would like to make a public service announcement on this piece of shit information floating around the internet. I’m NOT going to take pot shots at an artist’s personal palette but this is just misinformation to thousands of other people out there who may or may not know better.
Number one. IF YOU ARE PAINTING, YOU’RE NOT REFERENCING A DIGITAL SWATCH. So first of all, you need to know where paint comes from. I dont even know where to start with this. I mean seriously, the statement about not being able to make pure, strong colours with cadmiums is just so full of ignorance, I don’t even know where to start.
If you need visual evidence, let’s take a look at this picture
This picture was invented before CMYK ever came around, tbh. Too bad Klimt is dead or else he would attest to this just like EVERY OTHER TRADITIONAL PAINTER will.
Mixing colours is not magic nor is it as easy as picking colours from a digital swatch. It takes practice to understand how certain colours react with one another, employ painting techniques such as not mixing white with every goddamn colour to lighten a hue.
Let’s take another look at a somewhat LESS brightly paintedpiece.
The saturation is not nearly as bright but the chroma is pure. There are no muddy colours, nothing is brown where it was not meant to be. Because Kandinsky knows how to mix colours. It didn’t happen overnight nor was he born with that knowledge. It was years and years of practise and work.
Even Klee knew what was up. He was not a master artist by any means but he worked goddamn hard at it and look what he created.
Here’s another Klimt because we all love him so:
CMYK exists because it does not know how to replicate the natural pigments of paint that can reflect light. It’s a beautiful, beautiful fake at best. I love CMYK. I even want to get a tattoo that says CMYK. But it is by no means the one and only.
So PLEASE. PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF AND CROSS REFERENCE YOUR COLOUR THEORY BEFORE YOU BUY INTO THIS GARBAGE. NEWTON KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT WHEN HE MADE THE COLOUR WHEEL GUYS.
PAINTERS SPEAK OUT FOR OUR BELOVED COLOUR WHEEL! REBLOG AND REPOST! Whoo!
EDIT// Additionally, I re-read that ignorant infographic or whatever and have come to realize that the artist classifies pthalo blue/green and hansa yellow as CMYK. That is not CMYK guys. CMYK is used for digital prints because you can’t use paint. Duh. God, that information is so wrong, it wasn’t even worth making this post.
EDIT 2// Wow this took off like crazy. I’d like to clarify that CMY(K) is a printing process not Cyan, Magenta and Yellow in painting processes. I totes understand the necessity to use the more vibrant hues of CMY but in context to the original post, I would like to state that I understood that to be in reference to CMYK from design/pantone based inks that don’t necessarily work in a traditional paint format. And I love electric colours just as much as the next person but RYB is not to be entirely discounted because it’s old!
Alright, all, i’m going to make this one last edit before I wash my hands off this issue entirely lol:
#1: Here is the original post that this post was in reply to.
#2: Lastly, just because RYB was invented in the days of yore does not make it any less true. Yes we have created synthetic colours, but they are ALL derivatives of RYB. There is a reason why gouache is not the same as oil paint and WHY designers use gouache instead of oil paint. Additive or subtractive, there is an inherent truth to RYB and I know that the original poster of the original infographic believes so too.
After all we are all for equal love of all colours because colours are one of the most beautiful things ever. The End.
THANK YOU YES FINALLY
Talking with my buddy Neil were talking today on how condescending that original post was. I’m baffled at the people buying into that bully of a post the original was, you can color with whatever color you want, and metrikfire makes an excellent argument right there on media and what CMYK is. If you need a argument why is the original post wrong. Do what you want because you want to and for yourself.
Show this to whoever you care that reblogged the other post, not to be mean please, but to give a more accurate honest information.
Chosen Ones: A Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fanzine
Some fandoms are forever. Some characters stick with you. Some of us still have a whole lot of feelings about Buffy Summers and her friends, even if we don’t talk about her too much anymore.
Now’s your chance to make something cool for a fandom that’s maybe not as active as it used to be. Chosen Ones is a black-and-white, DIY zine containing a miscellany of eclectic content: fanart, fanfic, meta, and more. Got a Buffy-themed craft? We want it. Got a comic? We want it. Got a list of reasons this show will always live in your heart? We really, really want it.
Content Guidelines: Art should be black-and-white and fit on a 5.5x8.5” page. Comics should be under four pages. Written content should be 250-1000 words.
Deadlines: I’m aiming to have paper zines ready in time for Brooklyn Zinefest on April 20. If you’d like to make something for Chosen Ones, please get it to me by March 15.
Other Zines: We’re also seeking contributors to zines for Star Trek, Avatar: the Last Airbender, and Diane Duane’s Young Wizards books. You can see previous fanzines here.
Gonna try on this. Who’s with me?
Thank you nonasuch for letting me know of this and inviting me!
Hi friends!! I’m sure most of you are aware of my diabetic cat by this point in time.
Her name is Gizzmo, and she’s 16 years old.
And I really need your help, so here’s some quick backstory.
Gizzy has been a part of my life since I was 5 years old. We have cried together many times, played, and bonded. She’s helped me while no one in this household ever has. She’s extremely important to me.
Last March/April I noticed her tummy swelling, and her getting sluggish, and it worried me. When I voiced my concerns my grandparents did not care, telling me that she was old and that it’s ‘her time,’ and they did not even want to bother bringing her to the vet to see what the problem could be.
A few weeks of freaking out, crying, fundraising, and asking one of my lovely partners for help, I was able to get Gizzy to the vet, and a very intensive and scary day full of bloodwork and xrays and enemas later, it turns out Gizzy’s diabetic.
She’s been on insulin and special food, and a diet with pumpkin added for extra fiber ever since.
She’s been doing great, aside from the fact she had a seizure pretty recently, which shook me up pretty badly, but I’ve been taking care of it and being extra careful with my baby. Disappointingly, the vet has been failing me via not returning my phone calls, and calling them on my own is hard enough due to my anxiety and paranoia.
She was supposed to get her teeth cleaned soon, but I’m nervous about that, and don’t know how ridiculous the price is going to be if they say, have to remove some of her teeth.
I have a lot of problems that make it very hard for me to function in ‘everyday society’ and I already get help so I can afford to feed myself. I DO have a part-time job that I love and have kept for over a year, but it sadly does not make enough money for me, let alone the special needs of my cat that has no one willing to take care of her but me.
If you can send some money my way or at least signal boost this post once a day or something, it’d be really appreciated. My paypal email is AuriceLynn@gmail.com
I only have 110 dollars around for her right now, and I need that for testing her blood sugar levels when I do actually get to have her teeth cleaned. I need to go buy food for her right now, and that’s expensive. I haven’t been able to get the wet food she likes either, which helps her go to the bathroom easier.
Food is $26 monthly (Plus more if I get her the wet food I want to to make life easier for her)
Insulin is ~$30 every 3 months
Her sharps are $12 a pack
Pumpkin isn’t expensive but she goes through it fast so it adds up quickly each month.
I also never know what health problems might arise that need attention and cost money, since I have to pay my vet upfront.

So effing badasssss, both you and her!!
Wanna color this!!!!!!!!! May I? If you’re using it for school I’ll color the other one 0=)

John Baskerville from H&J comic commission for Gabrielle Houle
This is in fact amazing because I started following her a while back (thanks to Lily) and I’d no idea Gabrielle was in fact following me back and then she sends me an email for a commission, which is so so flattering and man, I’d to draw John from H&J, a webcomic I actually read xD.So I came out with this idea haha. I love everything about this character he’s so buff, beefy and chubby and 80’s hehe.
