I am not Bubbles! Bubbles is not who I am! I am the one, the only, single, solitary doer of dastardly deeds! Purveyor of pestilence! Interloper of lawlessness! Menace to mankind! I am bad! I am evil! I am Mojo Jojo! 

Posting this at a SUPER weird hour, but here’s a tiny preview of my piece for the Splendidly Evil Powerpuff Girl villain zine I helped to organize. I chose Bubbles as Mojo Jojo because that is actually the best episode of all time. Check the project out!! There’s tons of great artists onboard for this and the previews they’ve been posting have all been fantastic!

I saw your sailor bee from bee and puppycat and was wondering if people were aloud to cosplay it? ouo

@Anonymous

GO FOR IT, MY FRIEND. And when you do, submit it to the Bee and Puppycat blog so everyone can see your fabulous self.


TAGGED: Anonymous arielle talks a lot By the way this gif is probably the best thing I made during my internship.


Can you do cosplay tutorials? I've seen your cosplay everywhere and would love for you to talk about your process of making your costumes! (Especially Mabel)

@Anonymous

Here’s how I cosplay:

Step 1: Find a character I like.
Step 2: Beg my super talented older sister to make me look cool.
Step 3: She does, because she is an extremely nice person.
Step 4: I put it on.

I’ve been telling her forever to make a blog to document all her cosplay process. (As I’ve mentioned before, the Bee costume she made for me ultimately led to me being hired as an intern at Frederator.)

For now, you can check out her Instagram where she posts progress pictures during convention seasons. She’ll be working on Frozen's Elsa and Hawkeye's Kate Bishop (FOR ME!!!) this month for New York Comic Con.

Examples of her handiwork can be found underneath the Read More.(Excuse the mirror selfies. Since I do artist alley at most conventions, I don’t often get a chance to photograph the costumes.)

TAGGED: Kate Bishop Hawkeye comics fashion illustration arielle draws A warm up before I draw something Hawkeye related for a good friend. :) DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG I SPENT LOOKING AT PURPLE CLOTHES TO BUY ONLINE there is surprisingly not that much good stuff from my usual places though BUT STILL I NEVER BUY PURPLE CLOTHES AND NOW THIS ONE CHARACTER HAS SEEPED INTO MY LIFE CHOICES IN A MATTER OF DAYS Those flats are in my cart as we speak.


Quick general life update, because I’ve had some anons asking me lately:

Basically, I’m good. I’m less stressed than I’ve been in ages now that Otakon and a few other huge deadlines have been taken care of. I have a few other projects I’m dealing with too, but I’ve set healthier time frames around them.

I’ve realized that I always put too much on my plate and I need to handle things one step at a time and reevaluate how I manage my time. More and more I’ve been understanding just how precious my time is. I’m backlogged on email responses and other things for other people, but I’m going to be dealing with them today and tomorrow FINALLY. I have a to-do list and everything is going to get crossed off this weekend.

Other things that are new for me: I got a part time job selling tea, which I am very excited for because that means I get a lot of good tea half-off. I’m working on volume 2 of Ladies of Literature (and if you want to apply to be an artist, you totally should.) I’m taking an online Figure Invention class in September that I absolutely can’t wait to get started on. I’m going to be opening online commissions soon. And I scored tickets to NYCC (and it was ridiculously hard to get them this year!)

So that’s me right now. Post-grad life kind of throws you for a loop, but I’m getting back on track.


TAGGED: arielle talks a lot life delete later The thing no one tells you about post grad is that there are whole days where you just don't feel like doing anything. And instead of drawing you marathon stuff on netflix. It sucks but it's what happens. But just remember to keep focus.


how the fuck do you draw hands so well teach me your ways sensei

@Anonymous

Hands have gone from the bane of my existence to some of my favorite things to draw.

A lot of people get intimidated by drawing hands. Aside from the usual advice “draw from life” and “use reference,” here’s what you need to do. All those appendages and moving parts can be daunting. But what it comes down to is this: treat hands as you would treat the thing that you love drawing. Know what you like. For me: I love drawing faces and the curves of the body.

So when I study hands from life, I try to interpret them in a way that makes drawing them fun for me.

And so all the studying from life bleeds into how I draw hands in everything else:

Everyone always says “keep practicing” but I get you—sometimes stuff just seems super boring or too difficult to keep drawing, so you default to drawing the same things over and over again. The best way to combat that is to find something you DO like about drawing difficult things. The more you do it, the easier it becomes.

Here’s a sketch commission I did this weekend at Otakon for the fabulous Stella! She wanted Frank and Nico playing Mythomagic, with Hazel cheering them on. :)

Hey guys! This is the title page of a 6 page mini-comic for the awesome Amanda Scurti's new fantasy Earth-themed anthology TERRESTRIAL. It’s loosely based off the Filipino mythological figure, Mariang Sinukuan. I’ve been wanting to do something with her for awhile, so I was really excited about the anthology’s theme. You can pre-order it here, before it debuts at SPX in September. Check out all the other wonderful contributors!! It’s a mind-blowing list. Thank you again Amanda for inviting me. :)

Are you going to see Guardians of the Galaxy?

@twitchyteleporter

Considering 2014 is officially known as “the year Arielle sold her soul to Marvel” that would be a yes.

AKA I saw it open in IMAX. I liked it a lot! Wish Gamora & Nebula had more things to do, but overall I found it really delightful.)


TAGGED: still prefer the avengers though but that is probably because I have a disgusting crush on Steve Rogers (sincerely apologize to everyone who follows my reblog blog and suddenly has to deal with a ridiculous amount of Steve on your dashes.) delete later twitchyteleporter arielle talks a lot


Warm up. Lately, I’ve been reading a lot of Hawkeye. I love a lot of things about the series but most of all I love Kate Bishop and I love Annie Wu.
