My latest large art project, even got it done with enough time to get a print of it today. uwu Finally.
Part of my ongoing personal project to get better at shading, anatomy, and the human figure.
AND do fanart of some of my favorite characters, which are the Gerudos from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. WHOOH
I get this question from time to time, but no you can’t use my art for shirts/hats/whatever.
I used to, but not anymore. So no I won’t give you a full resolution picture and I won’t take my watermarks off.
At my first and only convention someone actually walked up to me and told me they took my art without permission and printed it on a phone case. ಠ_ಠ?
This goes for any art - don’t just take it and use it on physical products for your own needs without permission.
Some artists may be okay with it but it just makes me upset and not want to share art. :P

I just want to take a second to explain how not ok this type of thing is and because I have young in the making artist friends, I need to.
Artists, do not feel like your art isn’t worth the money. If someone is commissioning you and try to pay you with “getting your name out there” or “exposure” thing twice about it. Think three times.
Let me tell you a story.
Now, I got a message on Facebook from a friend of my mom’s. She’s a really nice woman, really loves my art, and constantly goes out of her way to find me opportunities for me wherever possible. A friend of hers was looking for an artist for his “bright idea” for a children’s book, and dropped my name.
First thing that I noticed was that in the first few email exchanges (not pictured) he was FAR less professional than I was. Secondly, he kept flaunting the fact that he had “tons of other artists” contacting him about the work (one of the 5 times pictured below.)
After a few emails of introduction, I sent him some examples of my past published covers and work. He replied with his idea, and stated he didn’t have a lot of money but it would “promote your name as much as mine.”
Now, I’ve done insert art before. I’ve done covers. Hell, I illustrated an entire children’s book for a really unprofessional woman who’s book fell through the cracks and even she paid me WAY more than my art was worth at that time. I even lowered my price since he mentioned not having enough monetarily. That’s ok, I understand times are hard. In reply to my offer, he replied with this.
And after that, he kept trying to ask for insert art and character designs for free because it would promote my name. It’s hours of work for a book that, honestly, isn’t that great of an idea. Thinking maybe $30 was really just too much for him, I lowered it. But no.
The concept of “getting my name out there” will not pay for my food.
He stopped replying when I said I need to see at least SOME money commitment from him before spending hours on work for him. I explained the situation to my mom’s friend who got us into contact and thanked her. She replied explaining he’s actually really well off with money and there’s really no reason for him to pay.
So, basically, just give yourselves enough credit. You’re worth it.

Just some “Done with the World” sketches, mostly venting but I figured I’d put them up because they’re still pretty nice

I’M NOT SORRY ONE BIT OMG
So I had some free time on my hands and… has this been done yet? Who knows. DX
Please read the below before downloading:
For those of you who won’te wait, here’s the link: x
Those that don’t know what a shimeji is, it’s a little like, mascot that runs around your screen. He will crawl up the sides of your desktop, on the ceiling, fall, sit, run, clone himself, and you can pick him up and throw him. I apologize, this is only for Windows. If someone wants to convert it somehow, be my guest and please let me know if you do.
Instructions for use:
1. Click the link and download. You will need Winrar or some extractor.
2. Put the file where you want it and right click, then “extract” it wherever you want.
3. Go to the extracted folder and double click the .exe to open it.
Notes about the Professor:
- If you want to get rid of the Shimeji at any point, just delete the folder.
- Professor Sycamore will clone himself. This means if you leave one Professor Sycamore on your screen while you go take a shower, you might come back to like, 50 of them on your screen.
- Professor Sycamore will throw Internet Explorer windows. As far as I know, these are the only internet windows he’ll throw.
If at any point you have questions, feel free to message me or whatever.
So again, here’s the link: x
