Im Back by MagpieFreak
Howdy peeps!

I've been away here for quite some time XD and there's a little pile of messages I have to reply to, so I'm sorry for the delay if you're waiting for an answer from me :> I hope you've all been doing well in my absence!

So what's been happening over on my side? I graduated from university, got to wear the giant gown with giant sleeves and the strange hat, and joined in with peeps on my course in imitating vampires shielding from the sun - most appropriate XD Soooo yep now university is over, and I have a degree in Games Design! And then a month later, and after a series of interviews, I was offered a job as a game artist in London, so everything's going ticketyboo and it's all very exciting :> Of course a lot of other things happened during that time, I traveled a bit, a friend came to stay, me battling art block and busy being inspired and creative, playing new games and stuff - lots and lots of things :>

Oh, and I must make an apology to the peeps who were expecting to see me in the Comiket at the British Library; unfortunately I had to cancel it, due to rather last minute circumstances :B In the end the stall was run by my friend, Asia Alfasi, so maybe you all met her :>

And as you may have noticed, a brand new PokéPeep is up in my gallery :> I've not gone impressively far into the KantoDex, due to how busy I've been, but hopefully with a more stable schedule from now on, I'll be able pick up the pace - I have every intention to finish this project haha XD Although sometimes the finishing line is a long long way away, I'm still as stubbornly positive that it will be done :< After all, the journey doesn't end until I say so -n- Anyway I'll do my best, I'm going to see how it can adjust around my job, as I've also got other projects I'd like to  keep working on *cough*comics*cough*. 

I hope you guys are doing well :>

I stumbled onto you completely by accident, I was actually checking out Kill La Kill stuff and your Sailor Moon pic popped up somehow.  But whatever, am I glad I found you!  Your art rocks.  AND you live in the UK!  

If it's not too much trouble, can you "Like" me on Facebook so we can talk over there? I have LUCRATIVE OFFERINGS to discuss with someone with talent like yours! fb.com/JoshClarkeDraws

MagpieFreak Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah hello :> Unfortunately I don't have any commission info up right now. My schedule has been all over the place recently, and I'm waiting for things to settle down so I know exactly how much time I can allocate to commissions. I think things will be clearing up in about a week, so hopefully I can post something up then :>

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
