About Me

Hello to you, too! ^^ :heart:

What kind of art do you do?
I am a Jill of many trades XD I do mainly fanart, especially for Invader ZIM which takes up about 90% of my gallery, and have been working on a fancomic on and off for the past few years, but I've done a few pieces for Gravity Falls and Steven Universe as well as Sailor Moon, and a few other fandoms... really whatever I'm into at the time. Much of my style is inspired by Jhonen Vasquez, but I dabble in anime, and can do a variety of styles from cartoony to abbreviated realism.

Are you self-taught?
Mostly yes. I learned like most kids do when starting out, by copying what I saw. It began with the animated Disney movies like The Little Mermaid and Aladdin, then later on I discovered >Sailor Moon and Invader ZIM, all of which had a huge impact on my art style. But I also learned some of the fundamentals in my high school art classes. I first taught myself how to use MS Paint (old school haha :XD: ), then later on Photoshop, and Clip Studio Paint PRO, although I still have a ton to learn about both! Although right now I'm going to college for Design and Illustration, most of what you see in my gallery came before I started attending classes.

Do you read all your comments/notes?
YES!!! Absolutely! :heart: It's the highlight of my day to browse through all the wonderful comments people have left on my artwork, or the encouraging notes people send me, and while I'm sorry I can't always respond to every single one (I'd never get anything else done if I did! :XD: ), I appreciate them very much. Reading them keeps me going, and always cheers me up when I'm down ^^ You all make me want to continue pushing myself to be a better artist, and I can't thank you all enough for your feedback and support :heart:

Do you do commissions?
I may eventually do them in the future, but sorry, no commissions at this time ^^;

Do you do requests?
Very rarely, and then only for friends I've known for awhile.

Do you do art trades?
I'm a little more open to doing trades with people, but due to my schedule I can't always accept them. Not to mention when I'm drawing things for someone else, I can't work on my own art, plus I've been burned quite a few times in the past by people who haven't kept up their end of the trade, so I'll only do a trade with you if:
1. You ask me nicely.
2. You don't ask for anything too complicated, like a scene with a million characters or anything.
3. I've spoken with you enough times to know that you're trustworthy.
4. If you're willing to be patient.
5. I'm not busy at the time.
Even then I might not be able to accept a trade with you, but you can always ask me--it can't hurt ^-^

Will you watch me?
Sure, just show me what you got! ^^

Do you RP?
I've never role-played in my entire life, so no :D Sorry, I'm just too busy most of the time anyway.

Do you have any OCs/fancharacters?
Not really. I've never been that interested in creating any, not even for Invader ZIM, although I do have a sort-of character I made up--I designed my own version of the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland if he were in the IZ universe, but his personality is based directly on Jhonen Vasquez's (the creator of ZIM), so he only kinda counts ^^;

Are you a good witch or a bad witch?
Mmm... depends on how much sleep I've had XD

Anything else?
Mmmnope, that's about it ^^ Anything I forgot? Just drop me a note and I'll answer your questions ASAP! :dummy:


Hi everyone,
I just wanted to let you know I've been reading all the very kind, supportive comments you all left on my last status update regarding my situation, and I want to thank you so much and tell you how much it meant to me.  I'm very sad to say my aunt passed early yesterday morning.  She was peaceful at the end, but it's hard to believe she's gone forever.  I grew up with her, and she was like a mother to me.  It's hard right now, but my family and I are here for each other.  I just wanted to thank you all for thinking of her, and helping me through this--I appreciate it more than I know how to express :heart:
Hey guys...
I'm not going to be around much for I don't know how long, so I'm sorry if you're waiting for any comments, replies, or notes from me.  One of my aunts that I've lived with most of my life is going through kidney failure, and... it's just a matter of days at this point.  I have no idea what I'm going to do.  I just wanted to let you all know what was going on and to apologize--I know i said I'd be answering all your notes and comments over the next few weeks, but I'm going to have to break that promise.  Thank you all for understanding.  I'll miss you guys, and hopefully I'll see you all again soon :heart:  
You... Are But a Thought...
Like, okay, I know I'm the first person who's ever done a humanized Bill n'all... Doge troll emote 

So anyway, yeah, this is a part of the Gravity Falls fandom I thought I'd never, ever venture into... drawing Bill Cipher as a smexy, bishie, anime-ish human-type person Bill Cipher Kawai Desu  and I really had zero desire to do so.  So what "possessed" me (ha, see what I did there?) to finally take the dreaded leap?  Believe it or not, you can thank Mark Twain.  Actually, you can thank one of my professors who suggested I read 'The Mysterious Stranger' by him (fascinating piece of work, but holyjeezuzfuck, talk about a story that'll fuck you in the head! Mind... Blown   And I know some of you have at least heard of it after seeing this infamous clip: The Mysterious Stranger).  Anyway, I noticed a ton of similarities between Bill and Satan in the story--both are basically omnipotent, otherworldly beings that can bend reality, are charismatic showmen, feel humanity is beneath them but find us amusing and love to screw with us, declare that the universe is an illusion, ect.--and they became so intertwined in my head I was unable to not picture human Bill while reading.  In a weird way it inspired me to want to draw a humanized Bill of my own--even get a little excited about it :tardgrinn: --so I guess here I am on the bandwagon now (damn you, Satan! Angry Mabel )  BTW, the title is a quote from one of the final lines of the story--it sounded like something Bill would say in some ominous, creepy voice... :creepygrin: 

I wanted to do my own take on his look, but of course it's impossible to be even a causal Falls fan and not have seen human Bill plastered all over the internet, so it was hard to not let that be an influence, and I'm pretty sure my Bill looks like about a bleventy-billion other Bills regardless Lovely Shoujo (Aaaaah Nooo) [V3]   Still, I did try, so rather than give him a tux, which most people do, I had this idea to give him this sorta Victorian gentlemen's cape/Jack-the-Ripper style outfit (mostly so I could do this thing with the back, but also cuz I just think it's a pretty cool look ^^).  As for the hair, I've seen most people go spiky, so I went wavy.  And while I freaking LOVE Alex Hirsch's cannon depiction of human Bill as a gross old man (and laughed my ass off upon seeing it XD  It is just a glorious middle finger to the multitude of fans--like myself :D--who have depicted Bill as this hot, young guy XD  Touche Hirsch... Touche), the way I figure it is while that might be his real human shape, he can use his powers to appear more pleasing to the eye, but it does take him a bit more effort.  I've got another pic like this with Bill facing front--I'll have to work on that one later so you can all see the rest of his outfit, but I wanted to do this one first blush icon 

As for the coloring I did a LOT of experimenting with different colored lighting and shading, and I'm actually pretty happy with this weird, crazyass color scheme I ended up with ^^  It's quite... interesting, anyway XD  But I really like it :heart:  
And since I know you'll be asking, the translation is as follows: "Remember... Reality is an illusion... The universe is a hologram..." Bill's Watchlist 


Bill Cipher and Gravity Falls created by Alex Hirsch (and the Illuminati... WooooOoooo! *waves hands all spooky-like*)
Hey guys ^^
Sorry I've been so scarce lately.  Last week I had a bunch of school stuff to get done, and this week I'm feeling a little sick--I think I might just take a little break this weekend.  If you're expecting any replies from me I'll get back to you once I'm feeling a little better, okay?  See ya :heart:
