Posting here one of the donation pics for Beth (I hear you calling, but I can't come home right now /kissnerd) and her toothly recovery!

plantmanexe: (Inferno - Light My Fire)
Been so busy with life work and so on these days, but I decided to take a little time to help out other people since many have helped me in the past. (working on everyone's commissions, I had another with an special deadline I needed to meet for a good cause, so everything else has been delayed in favor of this one. Please be patient, I'll be hitting people with sketches shortly.)

In that same vein, while I work on these sketches and wait for approvals, I'd also like to help signal boost this, borrowed from [ profile] mmouse15 :

 [info]el_esteleth, has just gotten the bad news that she needs massive dental reconstruction to fix damage done in her childhood that was never properly repaired. 

She is looking at $6500 in out-of-pocket expenses, and having to make the choice between having the dental work done or paying for food and housing.

Those are pretty important things to have in your life, yes? So [info]eerian_sadow has set up a Give Forward page for her, which is similar to a Kickstarter but for medical needs. Anything you can give would be wonderful, even if it's just words of encouragement and support.

She also has fibromyalgia, and those of you that have it, or have similar chronic pain, know how easy it is to get overwhelmed, which is how [info]el_esteleth is feeling right now.

So, please, if you can, help repair Beth's teeth.

Thank you.


As someone who is constantly fighting off the ebil teeth of d00m, I can sympathize. I don't know [ profile] el_esteleth we've never exchanged a single word as far as my memory can tell, but nonetheless, I would like to help out. I've already made an anonymous donation 'cause otherwise this thing wouldn't let me pay, but my meager contribution is not where I would like to stop, given how much money is going to be needed.

Taking advantage of my day off and to kill time, warm up, yadda yadda, I'd like to put forth a small offer:

If you make a donation to this fund raising, I'll draw something for you, and if you are in a computer capable of it at the moment, you'll be invited to watch it happening via Join.Me

- Donations of $5.00 to 9.99 get a chibi, with base colors drawn in binary brush ('cause I love that bitch)
- Donations of $10.00 to 19.99 get regular mech, waist up. Might or might not get colors, but def clean lines.
- Donations of $20.00 and above get 2 characters, waist up, basic colors.

You will not be giving this money to me. I want you to go to the page linked above (Or here if you don't want to scroll up) you will make a donation for your desired amount, and you will send me a copy of the receipt the website will generate for you. Even if you are an anonymous donor it'll give you a receipt. You may blur out or cut out your name if you don't want to share the details.

You may contact me at with your donation and desired character, and I'll generate your link if you want to watch while I draw it.

If you would like to repost this out, I'd appreciate it. I am willing to draw anything but real world people 'cause my skill has not reached that far yet, but if you provide me a reference I'll do my best to do justice to the character.

I'll be able to do this during Tuesdays and Thursdays which is when I am off work. If it's on you to make a donation, I'd love to give something back on behalf of the Sisterhood of Fuck You, Teeth.

This is a question I get asked a lot in deviant art and also something that I promised anon_decepticon talk about. Inking pens and mediums for highlights.

I love my art supplies, can you tell? )

First things first. I dropped by the post office to mail some commissions. This bot here is going to UK along with Wicked's pics. I now have a renewed determination to learn to draw/paint backgrounds better and familiarize with pastels and goache. >.>;

These two are going to Canada.

And now for some more Marker tips. [ profile] anon_decepticon asked a little about what materials you need to work with markers. It depends a little of the kind of marker you're using. As far as paper goes I can't recommend specific brands to much, since I've found it's more the type of paper rather than a brand (each brand produces a large variety of papers after all) although each brand will have its own 'little recipe' the results are affected more by the type of paper and markers rather than brands but I will drop a few to help you get your hands on some paper if you see any of the brands I mention. Pictures of materials below.

Actually, some kinds of paper are better for some marker brands than for others. When it comes to markers the paper does matter a lot. )

Glad a couple of you found the previous post useful. I thought you'd like to see a few samples of the way the markers behave and also give a few pointers of how the brands I've worked with lol Okay, I lied. It seems I have been working with watercolor markers without realizing it after all.

There's quite a bit of pictures so you get a cut to keep flists from assplodin'. The thumbnails all link to bigger pictures so you can notice the details. Long post is a little long.

Tharr be a Prime and markers under the cut. )

Someone asked me this in DA and already answered there but I thought I'd share it here for my artsy friends that like to work with markers or wanna dab there. Keeping in mind I'm far from an authority in the matter, this is merely my personal perceptions of the way the materials have worked for me.

Cut to spare you the ramble. )
