absentlyabbie​ I did a log of creepy staring at your face this weekend, but I think I got the cartoonized essence of you there. These were my original 5 key sketches. (I ended up referencing Maleficent for the smile and a bit of corpse bride for the head angles) 

September 30, 2014

So here’s the deal: absentlyabbie is always posting her gorgeous face and stellar eyeliner game on tumblr and I was suddenly hit with the burning need to try to animate a cartoon version of said gorgeous face (despite little to no skill in animation).

And so this is what I’ve been working on the last three days with my beautiful brand new computer (with solid state drive!) 

Originally I was just going to do the blink and grin but I thought I’d try a chair swivel as well (with slightly less success)

ps. absentlyabbie, if you want one of the frames or a transparent no background version or the animation with no color for some reason I have all that.

p.p.s. batsonthebrain this is why I was googling “Cheshire cat smile gif” (I considered adding pointy teeth)

Made some cheesecake today! The top is Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake with a gluten free brownie crust and the bottom is a Peanut Butter Fudge cheesecake with a gluten free graham cracker crust. Couldn’t find my icing tips so I just kinda slapped on the homemade whipped cream willy nilly. 

In other news, our new computer has come in! Finally, a computer that will work for more than an hour at a time! Expect actual fanart come Monday or Tuesday!

And topping the list of “Things I Could Never Ever Google Even If Paid”….

One thing about drawing- the search for reference pictures has lead me down some strange and terrifying paths

I can feel my insides curling up and retreating in between my ribs. It’s a fear i can’t seem to shake.

It’s a good thing my husband likes jujitsu and can tell me the technical terms for grappling positions or trying to find a reference for this catws fight scene panel (which I never used) would have ended badly

a capella hero metal. I feel like a whole new world just opened up before my eyes…

they do, admittedly, have a drummer, but all the chord work is a capella. It’s both amazing a ludicrous

batsonthebrain I would also like to add Wishmaster or Last night of the Kings or something by Van Canto to the list of songs you should listen to because you really haven’t lived until you’ve heard what they call “a capella hero metal.” It manages to be both epic and ridiculous
