i got a tablet for $30 dollars yeahhhhhhh XDDDDD
it's my second day of drawing with it; it feels unnatural to me right now >o<
haha isn't it kind of sad that i spent probably 10 minutes messing around with the box tool? i have NEVER used the special effects in the Tools tab since day one of my oekaki adventures. >>''''''
winter break is HERE. i get one month off, so maybe i'll draw more here <3 is everyone doing okay?? it's only a few more days till the big man squeezes himself through YOUR chimney!
mika 2008/12/22 - 22:18:22
Tablets are great once you get used to them.
Big guy squeezing down my chimbley........probably after nicking my stuff :- must prepare traps!
Love the loose style - she reminds me of Liza Minelli (sp?)
jakusama 2008/12/22 - 22:33:3
love the hair. just. Love it. Wish my hair did that. I love how whimsical the style is. It's quite enchanting. Eyes are killer. <3

voice picture: God this was hell to do! I didn't mostly by my voice, with Dragon NaturallySpeaking software,; you can order the pointer to drag the tools around and paint and draw with it very crudely. But it is really hard to do . I kept doing it over and over, because the whole drawing Vanishing! Was vanishing! It disappeared! I worked on a really good geometric abstract that was very involved, and really looked great, and for some reason suddenly I hit the wrong thing and it vanished completely Bogarde -- oh, God! How frustrating. For some reason, you cannot even race anything or the whole drawing vanishes; so using voice software to draw with is very crude; you can only draw up, down, right left and upper and lower left. So everything is square; oh and I can't use anything except the one pointer the other tools do not work. So, drawing with your voice, with this software is very limiting and it is slow; and you make one mistake, and your whole complicated drawing painting vanishes. Since I have fibromyalgia so bad in my arms and elbows and hands and shoulders I was trying to see if I could substitute voice software to draw and paint with it seemed like a good idea at first. Maybe if the software was a little more approved, it would be very possible. I can tell the pointer to go up and down all over, it clicks it double clicks, and often it clicks on links and he gets me around the Internet and I don't have to use my hands; so it is very helpful but it's slow and it's clumsy and it makes a lot of mistakes; if it doesn't recognize your voice, which happens a lot then the orders don't come through right or they don't come through it all never mind if the mass it's much better to use your hands ha ha and. But I'm writing all this right now with my voice -- look Ma, no hands! Like I say, I bet you could change this software and revamp it to draw and paint with your voice; very weird. I had to read its stories to get used to my voice. But it's very helpful; I don't have to do all that typing anymore, but I can't do now; I can e-mail my friends and leave notes on websites and even do a lot of writing with my voice if I wanted to. You can also correct the spelling as you go along when it makes mistakes -- you can use your voice to press any key on the keyboard. Well I will keep going on; but it is very good software. It takes up a lot of memory I got extra memory for it. It is slow; you can make it go faster, but the speed is still a limited much more limited than your hands. Well anyway I'll stop writing I'm sorry I'm writing too much. Anyhow I'm going to try to be patient and see what I can do to use my voice to do drawing maybe I should do simple stuff at first; it does take PATIENCE. -- something I need to learn. Anyhow, it's nice to be back, cause I love this board and all of you your great artists and nice people too. (I still use my hands to draw in real life, but doing a lot of drawing on software is really too much for me at this time, with my hands, that is. Anyhow, I'll stop talking now ha ha).
gleeful1 2008/12/20 - 2:20:33
WOWOOWOWOW you created this by voice? AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! WHAT A FEAT! the colored texture sare wicked sweet too <<3333
i'm glad that you have the perserverance to draw even if it means directing everything with your voice. it is really interesting to see how you can verbalize the motions of your hand.
i really read through your looooong post. i hope that you are okay with your health!
mika 2008/12/22 - 22:28:13
Sorry to hear about your condition, I'm amazed at your patience at getting around how frustrating this must have been, 'tis good to know you are still around as your pics were always original (your commentry was always epic as well...;))
jakusama 2008/12/22 - 22:31:51
You're my new hero. You're... ridiculously patient and doggedly persistent with doing what you love in the face of wicked circumstances. That is SO impressive, and you've really inspired me. I think the piece is beautiful, and I'd like to think it was well worth the effort. Love the textures and everything, and I hope your health prospers. Much love.
blacklight 2008/12/30 - 13:33:49
WHOA...This is really neat!
I love the patterns, and it just goes on like, forever. It's amazing, like a map of the airport or mall, but, better. I like it.

snoopywar 2008/12/18 - 23:51:48
Love how soft and painty this one is.
dorothyblueeyes5 2008/12/19 - 23:54:44
this is a very beautiful painting, and you have a very nice effect of water; being in the ocean. Very nice
gleeful1 2008/12/20 - 2:21:30
haha nice~~~ foamy oceans are the best. it makes the water have more personality.
golden 2008/12/20 - 16:14:56
OMG how wonderful. I love the concept and how you painted her face!
frosty_glow 2008/12/21 - 23:8:55
thank you guys so much!!!
jakusama 2008/12/22 - 22:29:4
This is awesome! Love it! I love the water, I think, the most. It's so uniquely depicted, and yet it seems so perfect for the softness of the picture. So warm... I bet she's toasty. (Unlike me.) Love the eyes, too. She's all like "Peekaboo!"
mika 2008/12/22 - 22:38:20
.....I thought the pic below was cool and was going to comment on it....however this pic kicked it's arse and stole the comment.
Simply put it's awesome, love the style -do more dammit!

I'm just practicing. I've been really sucking lately, and I hope this counts as... not sucking...
z 2008/12/17 - 16:35:32
Sucking? No, no sucking here. Just one totally beautiful Little Mermaid. x) The abdomen is incredible!
frosty_glow 2008/12/17 - 21:36:53
thanks! sorry that sucking comment
jakusama 2008/12/18 - 14:25:43
Awww! I love the little mermaid! I totally want to do a Mermaid Oekaki now. This rocks my world. I always wished my hair did the underwater float thing that Ariel's did. I'm so jealous of that, and you captured it really well. She looks like she's underwater. And I like how you made her fin have shiny scales. Very cool!
blumeaniandglove 2008/12/23 - 11:43:58

bananarana 2008/12/12 - 1:28:21
oh goodness, it's coming back to haunt me! I just watched all of the Live Action on Youtube literally a week ago, and some of the anime as well. I absolutely adore their dresses, and I seriously want to have Mercury's. I'd kill to have it... @____@
golden 2008/12/12 - 9:5:28
I just love the fact that you used their respective colors to sketch them. Now I really want to make Sailor Moon fanart..!
frosty_glow 2008/12/16 - 2:9:55
I LOVE IT! I love sailor scouts
jakusama 2008/12/18 - 14:24:33
YES! Sailor Moon AND Twilight! Such an awesome day. It's absolutely gorgeous, I love the sketchy, andf the undertones of the senshi colors. Like they're not just outlined in black, they're outlined in black and blue, for Ami (who kinda looks like Alice in an awesome way) and black and green for Makoto. So pretty. You just made my day, my dear. Lovely lovely work.

My take on the Bella Swan ---> Bella Cullen transformation.
I <3 Twilight HAHAHAA (dork.)
Various ref. pics from Mucha artbook
golden 2008/12/11 - 9:11:53
Oh, that's pretty :) Now I haven't read Twilight, but I've heard enough of them to dare to guess that the upper one is Bella pre-Edward? I love her face. She looks cold, like you can only admire her beauty from afar.
pif 2008/12/11 - 20:42:53
i just realised i have 2 accounts... um.. are the mods able to transfer this oekaki over to my piffle account and just delete this account? @_@;
thanks in advance, either way
bananarana 2008/12/12 - 1:18:19
I haven't read the books either, but I did see the movie and my friend told me a little about the series. I like your depiction of her, though I'm also really surprised by how different she looks between the two figures. I thought she'd be pretty much the same save for a few extra... modifications, lol.
frosty_glow 2008/12/16 - 2:11:51
oh wow those eyes... I love the sketchy love put into this creation! these are wonderful, just lovely
jakusama 2008/12/18 - 14:23:1
I looooove Twilight. Beautiful Bella. I like how it looks like Freesia, too. I don't know if you intended the flowers on her dress to look like Freesia, but they definitely reminded me of that. Beautiful color scheme, love the ring, love the eyes. Mmm. Breaking Dawn. Beautiful work!

Err... let's pretend that my picture below was submitted 3 minutes earlier than it really was. >___>
Anyway. Not too sure if I like the coloring or not, so I went back and took a screen of just the lineart, lol. [link]
pif 2008/12/11 - 1:20:30
lmao she's so angry!
I like how you draw eyes
golden 2008/12/11 - 9:12:46
I can't decide which version is the best either. They're both awesome. Love the color combination :)
bananarana 2008/12/12 - 1:12:22
Thanks for the comments! : ) I actually drew this picture on my old laptop--I never realized how terrible the screen was until I saw it on a newer monitor! Ye gads, it's so... muted! It looks like I set the transparency really low, haha.
jakusama 2008/12/18 - 14:21:9
I like the softness here. I LOVE her expression. I'm like, laughing. It's so comical. And he's just got this big smile on his face. I like the colors, too. And I totally know what you mean about them looking different on two different computers. Very pretty!

bananarana 2008/12/10 - 0:2:17
where do I even start...? owo;;
Well, firstly, it's been years since I've been here, so hello again to everyone at rTACo.
Lately I've been in a drawing mood; my roommates are beginning to get annoyed with all the pieces of paper I'm leaving around the apartment, so I thought I'd dig up my tablet and oekaki something. Unfortunately, I never installed my tablet on my new computer, so it didn't quite work how it was supposed to while doodling (re: it didn't work at all). Oh well.
The pic was supposed to be a Harry Potter pic; if you look at the animation, you can see that I (very crappily) sketched him in there, but I ended up leaving him out since Ron and Hermione have... fluffy hair.
I can't say I love the pic (I don't hate it). Ehhhh
izzi-ink 2008/12/10 - 6:31:14
It's real nice.
I love how the line art is thicker when you outlined their shapes.
HAHA, i like Ron's expression:)
pif 2008/12/11 - 1:19:48
BAAH @_@ I love Harry Potter!! Ron is PERFECT. I love how you drew his hair
This totally put me in a fanart mood hahaa.
jakusama 2008/12/18 - 14:19:35
I love their expression! Sooooo classic! I can almost tell what they're bickering about. I love the background, too. I can never do nice backgrounds. You actually have a background, but it doesn't take away from the picture. So smooth, the shading and shiny is lovely.
gleeful1 2008/12/20 - 2:23:0
gosh, how could you fit harry in there?? it think the picture is quite busy as it is! hermione's expression is perfecto XD
mika 2008/12/22 - 22:19:52

L and M, two love-birds from a story i wrote for writer's craft, the pose came from a dream i had, and yes! YOU HAVE BEEN SPARED FROM MY EYELASH FETISH!!!
Before drawing this I was wandering around the Rooms looking at all that has been posted since my last visit here, which was several months ago, I think (Cant even remember -_-') But OMG I drew a manly looking man!! isnt it amazing? He doesnt look like a girl!! I feel so proud XD he even has muscles XDD
I was debating on whether i should add colour to this or not.. to be honest the girl isnt supposed to be that pale, I just wanted to create some contrast between their skintones, but I love his hair **ruffles her fingers through it**
If you could bring any of your characters to life, would you?
I wouldn't, it'd end up destroying the world =S
but enough of my ramblings.. Go draw!! **runs off to hide under her bed for another century**
frosty_glow 2008/12/9 - 23:44:19
I love that they are naked riding a horse lol. he looks like he's 8foot tall compared to the girl. really pretty, and so girly haha
pif 2008/12/11 - 1:21:28
...i wish my hair looked like that >_>
however, i would never ride a horse naked, with a sword. noooot too safe.....
jakusama 2008/12/18 - 14:17:58
I bet they have a comfy saddle? *wiggles eyebrows* I want one of those. The man. Love love his hair. I want to pet it. If I had a man like that, I would ride naked on a horse with him. Maaaaybe with a blanket, but I would definitely give up the saddle if I had to to get him. Beautiful hair, and I love the angle. It's such an unusual angle - but you're so good at that. Beautiful skin tones, too!

I totally want that dress. And I want to make my hair do that. I really like the texture of the hair - it's very subtle, but you can definitely see it. Sense it, really.You don't notice it until you look for it, but the top looks so smooth and the bottom part looks so curly and crinkly, without all the extra lines. I'm in awe!

a busy(aka messy) happy-group-picture- hope it's acceptablllee.
One wants less touching, one wants everyone squished together, one wants to run far,far away and one wants to be closer to the other.
tried playing around with layer properties. It was fun- i hardly ever use blue shadows.
lorelai 2008/12/4 - 10:45:20
amazing composition! =D it's so cute :) you're very obviously comfortable with bodies :) it's amazing how no heads or limbs got lost in this pic!
pif 2008/12/11 - 1:22:38
your style really reminds me of a friend from highschool, i like it a lot. the expressions are great!
jakusama 2008/12/18 - 14:14:52
Love love love! Super cute! Love the expressions, and love the way they're moving. I would get so confused with all the limbs in this picture - you're amazing!
gleeful1 2008/12/20 - 2:24:59
i like your soft colors ^___^ great group picture with lots of interesting expressions. hehe makes me go, "aww"

I'll probably have moved out 4 years from now, and it's fun to daydream about what has become of me without my family, and my family without me, coming over for a short reunion after all this time apart.
My dad's pissed because I baked a tofurky. MUAHAHA
kelli 2008/12/3 - 7:29:49
oh wow, what a great idea! I commend you on fitting this elaborate scene into a small oekakai. The expressions are adorable, and the tofurkey idea brilliant. Also, great job on the letters in Thanks (I like all the letters, but thanks is especially sharp). Thanks for sharing =)
jakusama 2008/12/3 - 10:53:50
Haha this is really incredible. I love how it's such a small 'kaki, but there's so much detail. And I totally want a tofurkey now. Make me one! :D (I'd probably like that better than regular turkey. The only thing that holds me back from being veggie is beef.) Yay!
lorelai 2008/12/4 - 10:45:54
i totally agree w/ the comments above. GREAT job!

This is really cute! I like her pink skin and the way you did her eyes.
jakusama 2008/11/30 - 0:36:55
YES! LOVE Sailor Moon. So happy to see this! I love her blush and her eyes, and Luna's eyes crack me up. Such a pretty style for such a pretty manga. Love the softness of the colors and the curliness of her hair. Beautiful!
frosty_glow 2008/11/30 - 22:52:43
thanks!!!! I've loved sailor moon for so, soo long that whenever my art feels dry I like to come back to the style and such of this show and manga. I mean, just ah! Breathes some life back in sometimes like magic.
The main reason why luna is making that face is because I decided to make this a little humourous. it's too serious and pretty sometimes, plus she farted C:
golden 2008/12/1 - 6:45:9
Ahaha I love it! And not only because it's Sailor Moon and I instantly love everything with Sailor Moon (alright, almost everything), but also because it's cute and the white spaces make the picture so much more stylish than your average anime pic. Also because her hair (wonderfully! white!) is floating around in the perfect Sailor Moon-manner. Also because Luna looks high :D
lorelai 2008/12/4 - 10:46:11

jakusama 2008/11/28 - 12:57:9
Awww, you're beautiful! And so is your picture. I love what you did with the hair. It looks so springy and I love the highlights that crop up. The eyes are really beautiful too. So pretty and dark. Pretty picture, with pretty shading.
mika 2008/11/28 - 22:55:7
It's not as bad as you say.......actually the likeness is very good albeit in a slightly cartoonish style, I totally agree with Jaku's comments here.
cretin 2008/11/29 - 13:13:16
I'd say the nose and eyes are spot on. I love the skin tone and cartoony style. It is a really good likeness. :)
golden 2008/12/1 - 6:47:11
The area around your left shoulder, where the brown hair meets the green coat is just awesome. Don't ask me why xD

jakusama 2008/11/28 - 12:58:33
Woo! Glad to see more from you! I like the shading on the face here, and the hair is so smooth. Particularly, I like the background, too. It seems.... almost impressionistic-esque? I'm not quite sure what it is exactly I love so much, but it's very pretty.
frosty_glow 2008/11/30 - 22:54:42
This person looks very wise and peaceful!
lorelai 2008/12/4 - 10:46:38
