how sad lyricstucks are conceived:

I’ll swim and sail on savage seas

with ne’er a fear of drowning

And gladly ride the waves of life

if you will marry me

I’ve had a sketch of this sitting in my folder for a while now, and galtenoble’s gorgeous art inspired me to finish it! I’m so in love with these two ahh//

People need to be encouraged. People need to be reminded of how wonderful they are. People need to be believed in—told that they are brave and smart and capable of accomplishing all the dreams they dream and more. Remind each other of this.

toastyhat asked: first possibility: quick fun one-verse lyricstuck to M&S song of your choice (I could trim the song for the audio post if needed) or, if that is too ridiculous! STREET FIGHTER TROLLS especially kanaya, kanaya the streetfighter with tattoos... maybe... >.>

hHHHHH toasty if I end up doing a whole nother M&S lyricstuck because of this you will take all the blame

aslightcaseofthedarkgreens asked: i was just wondering if you had a kind of ownership over the term "lyricstuck" bc i was thinking about a homestuck drawing project to a song similar to what you do, and if that would be okay and if i should tag it as lyricstuck or not! though if it's your thing and you'd rather i don't borrow your idea, i understand!!! i just really love all your art and lyrcistucks especially, i find them really inspiring!!!

I do not! The term has existed long before I joined the fandom (though I’d like to think that I contributed much to its activity xux)

So by all means~ good luck and have fun! And thank you for your kindness.

bananagrrl asked: I saw your post about a happy blog and I wanted to say that your blog does make me happy, but there is something else I want to say. I had a hard time in my senior year of high school and I would end up feeling really stressed and stopped up(?weird description), and I would always watch your doomed timeline lyricstuck and cry like crazy. It was extremely cathartic and one of the best stress reducing techniques I've ever used. I just wanted you to know that the sad stuff made me happier


this just—awes me. I’m so glad my art helped you out of your stress. I never knew it could work like this :o …wow

thank you so much for sharing, this is a truly wonderful insight

you might sort of be able to combine some of them (lineart/gesture, painterly/lighting) but it is an awful lot to focus on at once. maybe work on developing a more efficient process first so you can work on the other things faster?

Yooooo, that is a brilliant idea! *0* Thank you ohmuhguh, I want to try this out.

Like…whenever I do my daily gestures, I can spend extra time to clean up the lineart and make it pretty C8

aaawwww yeeeee thank you for saving me

im in one of those art-periods where i cant decided what to improve on so i end up doing everyone of them kinda half-baked

work on more efficient process?
painterly/concept art look?

it happens everyday on a more subtle basis but more recently i feel like im gonna split myself in five directions if i dont decide on something soon CX
