Oh hey, look! A facial study! Man, I really suck at expressions/proportions.  Looks like someone is going to be drawing a whole lot of faces soon! 

I love the faces in Merlin!

Photoshop is hard BBS :(
I feel stupid when I use it and it sucks. Any tips? I specifically have a hard time drawing on it. Everything looks messy and I don't like that.  That, and painting is sooooo overwhelming! I never know where to start!

Also, what's happening in Japan is horrible! I feel like crying whenever I hear about it. And more disasters keep on happening to them! I mean, an earthquake,  a tsunami and supposedly a volcano as well? My heart, it breaks. I'm looking right away for some sort of campaign near me to help.  It's just so scary!  :(   :(   :(   :(

I don't have much experience with digital drawing. I also get really overwhelmed when I try to color/draw with it.
Umm, there's a new community called fanartivation for fanartists. They take any sort of art related question, I'd definitely go ask them!! http://community.livejournal.com/fanartivation/profile

gah, these are fantastic! Gaius and Merlin? My only thing is they look a bit squished, but that's probably just your LJ trying to compensate for the size. Other than that they're bloody gorgeous! I especially love Gaius' expression...lol makes me laugh! Digital painting is a bit scary at first, but you're doing excellent! The easiest way to make lines all nice is if you have a wacolm tablet or a fuck tonne of patience (I have neither, but I try to compensate by spreading my drawing time between days instead of hours)

And yeah, I know what you mean about Japan. They play all the videos on the news and you can hear people screaming in the background and I get so upset I have to leave the room or turn the tv off. I'm glad my friends are safe, but now with the nuclear plant about to meltdown and with the death toll already past 10,000 it makes me want to hyperventilate a bit. I don't want my friends to get hurt, I don't want all those people to die. I feel like an awful person because I didn't get as upset during Katrina or Haiti or any of the other major disasters that happened (I mean sure I was sad, but I think it's more to do with the fact that I've been to Japan a few times and exchanged there and I've never been to New Zealand or Haiti or New Orleans so I couldn't picture it as clearly.)

Er, anyway, must change subject... your art is fabulous! ♥!!!!!

Ha ha, stupid LJ. I tried changing it so it wouldn't be so squishy but after a while I just gave up and left it like that. Haha, yesss, Gaius has the best facial expression ever. I could seriously just watch him do different faces all day long. And I do have a Wacom tablet now, I'm just still not used to it. To my defense, I've only had it since Christmas and haven't what a whole lot of time to draw on it.

I don't know why, but what's happening to Japan, it just seems more real in a way. I don't know why or how, but it's really shaken me. It's just horrible to the point where I feel so helpless and like you said, I didn't feel twice as much as affected for the previous disasters, but it's Japan; I'm just still so shocked it happened. I mean, as a little girl I dreamed of going there, you know? It's terrifying. Maybe 2012 will happen after all? I mean, I don't believe in that superstitious stuff, but from what's happening now, maybe the world will end, not because of the Maya calendar, but from all the ill we made to the planet and our destruction of it's fragile balance.

I can't even think of a subject change, except puppies, which is my safety net in conversations. So um, how about them puppies? And thanks!
