Happy Valentine's Day from Sister Sister by CrystalCircle
Happy Valentine's Day from Sister Sister
Because of my computer going lame for almost two days, I lost time to work on my valentines's day cards and art, but I did have time to do a little doodle comic for you all.

It started as a doodle of a dragon throwing a rock at Raven Rare, but it evolved into this. You guys haven't met Blue in the comic yet, but he's been sort of my mascot for the comic and I draw him a lot. He's this dude here--> fav.me/d7ovzn0

His final design is slightly different. You'll meet him later this chapter....and yes he acts just like this! XD

If you don't hear from me after tomorrow night it's because I'm curled up in the corner of my room crying over a cartoon. Gravity Falls ends tomorrow...I'm not ready for the truck-load of feels...

Whatever my buddy did, it helped! My computer seems to be doing just fine! It's a little faster than it was and it doesn't seem to be laboring as hard...the cooling fans were going nuts on it before. Well back to working on that page! I'm a little behind on it because I was babying this computer for two days. I also didn't my cards done...dang it. I'll try to do one or two, but the page comes first!
When in doubt...use a reference! by CrystalCircle
When in doubt...use a reference!
I usually don't post my cell pictures to DA, but I thought I'd share this. The next page involves a couple 8ft tall crystals, but after spending almost an hour trying to sketch out what they look like, I dug through my rock collection and picked up this small yellow quartz and used it as a reference. I used it for the transparency and lighting too! 

What I'm really trying to say is two things:

1.) If you are having trouble drawing something, use a reference! Don't be afraid to admit "I don't know what I'm doing" and get some help from google images or take your own picture of the thing you need to draw.

2.) It's called REFERENCING not TRACING! Tracing someone else's image is a terrible thing to do and can land you in some serious trouble. Referencing is what I did here and is 100% OK! If you notice, I didn't trace the crystal (I mean how could I? It's a physical thing). All I did was hold it in my hand and drew with my other hand.

The only time tracing may be ok is when you trace your own photos. Take a picture of yourself posing in a mirror and tracing that may get a job done, but you don't learn anything. You learn from practicing and repetitive drawing. It took me a few times to get the crystals to look right even with my little helper, but since I drew them without tracing, I learned how my hand has to move and how the resulting strokes makes something look. You don't learn that by simply following a line.

Just my little two cents on a subject that kind of irritates me. Take my advise or don't, but it works....just sayin


Also yes; having a rock collection is helping me out with this comic in many ways as rocks and crystals play very important roles in the story.

If you can't wait until the next page, you can get a taste of it by looking at my scraps! Every Monday I put a small preview of the next page in there. Next week's preview is there now!
