superspectrals asked: i showed my mom your run to you lyricstuck and it made her cry. she doesn't know what homestuck is but i think she understood the story it told well enough for it to make her sad. i feel bad now :(
Ohhh fuuudge D: Feel bad for your mom crying but at the same time kinda happy that the story is clear that people can look past the orange horns and grey skin? ;u;
autumn-people asked: It's probably annoying to get semi-pointless messages like these, but I really just wanted to let you know that I really, really love the way you draw smiles. I love all of the expressions you draw tbh, but the smiles are the best because they pretty much always make me smile as well because they are cute as hell
Aaaawww askdnkjjnsd, this is not annoying!! Thank you so much, this is really sweet :)))
petitepluume asked: Hi, can we get a link to your stream playlist? ^_^ There was some quality music in there
Whoops, I’m sorry I forgot to post the link yesterday! ~u~”
Here’s the work playlist I use!
coalykinz asked: Mind if I ask what song you're using in your Lyricshock? (unless it's a secret, of course)
I’m using Babel by Mumford & Sons. :)
rymadeofmind asked: *zips over, gives you flowers* I HOPE YOUR DAY IS AWESOME! *zips off*
*calls after your diminishing figure*
THANK YOU FOR THE FLOWERS!!
kathy-arsis asked: Hello! I'm working on a lyricstuck, and I was just wondering how exactly you manage to put more than 10 pictures in one post! (forgive me if this is a terribly stupid question, it just really baffled me.)
Aighty here we go:
1. Make a text post and an audio post
-put your art in the text post and your song in the audio post
(recommend to save these as drafts at first)
2. Select all and copy the art from your text post
3. Paste it onto your audio post
aud8 asked: for that year old post about lack of sleep and fanfics, do you remember which fanfic it was that you were talking about? c:
I don’t remember drawing it for anything in particular. Just my general experience on well-written fanfics ;u;
davediddlystrider asked: Nice to meet you too. Hey, do you mind if If I ask you a question? I am an artist too and I can't Leo but admire the length of your beautiful Lyric Comics. I always have trouble maintaining motivation while I'm in the middle of a really long piece, like a comic. How in the world do you keep yourself so focused?
there are spans of days where i just dont feel like working on my projects—lose motivation and dont wanna look at my own work sorta thing. And there are plenty of lyricstucks that I abandoned because of that reason :P
but to get over those challenging internal conflicts, I ask my friends to keep an eye on my progress and push me, and always try to work at it til the point of no return—meaning you’ve worked so long at it that you might as well get it done, haha.
Focus is important, but it only really comes in short, small bursts. What’s important is the things that you do while you’re not in that focus zone. It’s all about the willpower and patience to push yourself through a long project. Work on it one small step at a time. Certainly we get a blaze of excitement when we first start off, but when you hit a block and run out of energy, it’s time to be wise and start planning more carefully.
I’m not the perfect model for it no, but the important thing is to try. Try your best. Have patience for yourself and your work.
Good luck! ^u^
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
irrelelephants asked: Um, hello! I'm so sorry for bothering you again, but I was curious if people had ideas for your crossover if tagging you or submitting art to you was okay? Sorry, I don't mean to be a pest ^^"
Ooh, I’d prefer if you’s tag it w my username (or wecansexy’s? idk if she’s ok w that) or just feel free to use the general (as far as I know at least) term for it, which is ‘HTTYDstuck’
/oh shush stopit, you’re not being a pest. ^u^
hardboiledmanner asked: Hi there! I'm just starting out as an artist, and I really like traditional drawings you've been posting (especially the one you made for wecansexy). I was wondering what art supplies you used to make them, specifically? Like, what specific brand of pencils and such? I'm a bit overwhelmed by all the different options at my local art shop.
Thanks! I borrowed the orange prismacolor pencil and then drew with a .5mm mechanical pencil over it. :)
If you’re shopping, unless you have a specific art goal, it’s ok to buy general (and affordable) tools.
dorkymituna asked: im sorry if im annoying but i love two of your lyricstucks,the "run to you" one and the "i will wait" one and i love them so much because they're so beautifully drawn and i cry every time i watch them and it makes me so happy every time i see them and i just wanted to tell you that despite me being sad a lot, every time i watch those i get happy and you inspire me to get better with my art and you're just a really great inspiration to me and im sorry for bothering you, have a nice day!!!
You are not annoying, nor are you bothering me! Thanks so much for this sweet message, I’m honored to be able to inspire people UuU Hehe, lyricstucks inspire me a lot too
You have a nice day too and keep on arting! :)
pringlebit asked: tbh your art is so insanely pleasant to see that every time I see it it makes me rlly happy
dontlistentoradio asked: Your painting style is so asthetically pleasing, it's incredible. <3
Ah, thank you so much! This means a lot! ^o^
skittlesweets asked: Aw man I feel really bad for the dapper imp I mean he's not doing anything just sitting there sipping his tea but I also want him to get his butt whooped because you know he's an imp. Why must you give me these confused feelings
I’ve never seen imps as anything threatening—even from the beginning of the webcomic they’re just a buncha dumb adorable rascals. The poor doofs.
