Howdy peeps!

Firstly I have to apologise for the inactivity that seems to have taken hold over the past few weeks. I appear to have allowed messages to stack up XD;;; It has indeed been a very ... interesting past few weeks, but they should all be resolved soon Q_Q I'd like to be able to sit back at a desk and resume drawing one day XD;;; and maybe catch up with sleep XD

However this journal today is to announce that:

Tanabata Festival by MagpieFreak


Yep yep yep :> Li'l Magpie along with her comicky friends in Cross#atch are going to be holding some classes tomorrow :> Cross#atch is a group of artists who have all been winners in the Manga Jiman competitions through the years, and in it are ... well there's me of course XD There is also Asia Alfasi Lady-Respect , Elena Vitagliano, Gisela Martins and Sara Ferreira :D This image was a collaboration between me, Gisela and Sara stkstarbullet ;the lineart was drawn by them and I did the colouring :>


The Embassy of Japan kindly invited us to take part in the Festival of Love this year, so this is all very exciting, and I'm looking forward to meeting lots of people :D if any of you lot are in London, pop over and have a chat! It would be awesome to see you there as well :D

Let's draw stuff together! \o/

See you later!

Haha thanks :> ... his style? You mean Endling? If yes, then yeah I love his style too :heart:, and if not, totally check his stuff out anyway cos you're gonna love it  :> As for tutorials, I did throw together a sort of loose-tutorial about making comics/projects two years ago magpiefreak.deviantart.com/art… Lots of peeps responded saying that it helped them out loads, so I hope it helps you out too :>

Yes, "Him", the man who's name shall not be spoken...u.u haha
Anyway I was hoping u can share some insights on the shapes...:) But I guess it's something we gain by practicing..XD
Do you have any facebook art page I can follow?:)

Heheh ok :> 

Unfortunately I don't have any tutorials about shapes and how to actually draw. Personally I aim for expression and movement, so I like to look at body language, figuring out movement lines, and seeing how much I can say in my art without actually saying anything. It's something to be gained not only by practicing, but observing stuff like ... ehh... I don't actually watch much anime. Instead I like looking at dances, theatre, pictures with extreme poses, and I like to figure out just what makes each pose so interesting really. Shapes come into play a lot with these kinds of things, though I'm not sure how to explain it XD; Anything's inspiration really, I just like theatrical stuff XD

I do have a facebook art page, though it's pretty inactive. I have a habit of forgetting it exists XD; www.facebook.com/pages/Katja-M…

Love your art, your expressions and poses are really expressive :) your tumblr link doesn't seem to be working though, did you remove it?

MagpieFreak Featured By Owner May 16, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you very much! Yeah I particularly love to be expressive in what I draw XD It just ... pretty much gets the point across with things XD Plus it makes it all the more fun :>

My Tumblr link? Hm.. well... I changed my tumblr name recently so that might have something to do with it , but I didn't think it would actually change anything.. Ah well, this link should work! magpiefreak.tumblr.com/

That does indeed work :) just started following you

I agree, making things expressive really helps with the clarity, plus it's really fun to exaggerate

Welcome to my specialist list of inspirational artist! You are fabulous and I really like your OC Lucifer. Him and my OC Will would get along just peachy! Anywho, any tips for a struggling digital artist? I have programs and a tablet to use, but I just can't seem to get my art to fit the glamorous life of the digital spectrum. Could you help this clueless artist find her way?

Hello :> Haha I'm flattered to be part of that list of yours :> To get better at digital art... there's no easy way to go about it :B It takes time to settle into something, and so sometimes you won't see results until a few months later. However I wouldn't say 'Just give it a few months and you'll be fine' - make those few months count, look at new techniques, see how other peeps manage stuff, look at comics/cartoons you really like, see if you can figure out their methods. Analyse things that interest you and try it yourself, then one day you might come across something that speaks your arty language. I made a sort of tutorial/WIP thing a while ago, maybe that might help get you started :>

It's a long journey that most artists, me included, go through. I'm still walking it XD Good luck with your journey :>
