Anonymous sent: Sorry for the random question, but do you know of any decent free or cheap animation programs?

pencil ,eztoon andplastic animation paper - anyone is free to respond with other ones if they know of them ! I’ve only used pencil and plastic animation paper …personally I prefer plastic animation paper even though the layout is hard to use ( its the old pap in the download section ) but the creator is making a new program soon as well.

I’d say flash is the next step up and after that theres tvpaint and toonboom.

The latest Sketchbook Pro has a new animation feature that’s worth looking at and it’s not too expensive either at 65$

I'm really excited about finally going to college, but one thing I'm really worried about is making friends. I understand that everyone is going to be nervous, but that doesn't make me feel any more confident! My biggest fear right now is that I'll be alone at school. I guess my question is how did you get over the initial nervousness and start making friends?

I guess I kind of just jumped into it and said hello ! The first person I talked to was Coral , I just kind of sat beside her because her hair was a flaming red becon that shone above the drafting tables haha. Its a bit easier to make conversation and introduce yourself when you have to sit next to anyone anyway.

Honestly you’ll feel better very quickly, the first week is always nerve wracking a bit but you’ll soon realize that being in a group of people who all have the same interests - animation , will really bring everyone together ! I can’t think of anyone who was left on their own through my years there - I’m still friends with a lot of people I went to school with. You’ll be fine ! The course is made up of all different types of people and not all of them are outgoing, but everyone makes friends in the end. Sometimes all we can do is experience things to help alleviate the fears, that happens to me too as well ..where you sometimes assume the worst and its hard to get out of your head - but try to relax and if you catch yourself worrying over stuff thats yet to come just replace those thoughts with something more enjoyable ! By this time next week you will be wondering why you were worrying so much I bet !

Anonymous sent: how did you get your own style down? Especially with the way you draw bodies! I love your art so much! I'm having trouble figuring out my style >.<

TBH I dont think I have my own style down - it shifts over time and depending on whats influencing me. Really in the end it just comes from trying out things that I like and seeing what sticks - a style is something that will develop over time and it just takes drawing ! Don’t try to figure it out too much , just draw what you like, play around and it’ll be easier :)

Kitty faccceee!

Kitty faccceee!

OH MY GODDD shes so cute!!!!!! (the first pic makes me laugh she look so pissed off…..agkagj)

She does look really angry lol - but shes pretty sweet although she seems to not like being picked up , but thats ok since I just brought her home.

Ahh I love her breed ;___; how much did she cost?? I’ve been thinking about getting one too

She cost me 300$ from a breeder, shes retired so kittens probably cost more - shes 4 years old. I hear they’re good breeds but..I GUESS ILL FIND OUT.

she has such a tiny head! but it might just be the tummy making it look like it is.

She really does oh my god , it seems even tinier in person. I think the gut does have a lot to do with it but even when she loses it I think her head will still look pretty small.

Blurry photos of new cat ! She had kittens not too long ago so shes a little saggy through the tummy but she hasnt hidden under the couch or anything yet
.shes kind of a spaz

Finally came up with something I like for the studio art show  - I ditched the drunk fairy idea for now because it wasnt working with me , I&#8217;ll just call this one &#8217; Freckles &#8217; . Now to clean it up&#160;!
