Hey there and welcome to my page! I'm a 23 year old engineering student who loves to draw in her spare time. I love to draw dragons and other fantastic beasts including some original designs. I draw and watch cartoons and my two favorite cartoons are Steven Universe and Gravity Falls. I also write and illustrate webcomics. You can find them in my gallery and my currently updating one will be featured on my page. I love to talk so don't be afraid to comment. I also LOVE when people leave constructive criticism on my works. It helps my improve and I also love to see what others really think of my work.

I'm also open for commissions! My commission info is here--> Commissions! :D-Updated prices! by CrystalCircle

Boop! This is a page stream of this weekend's page! So be warned: there are spoilers!

***Read below if you are new to my streams!


Little edit with the chat box! If you want to use it, go to the top, right hand corner of your screen and click the three dots and click "old version" near the bottom of the menu. Your screen will flicker and/or lag and then bring up the stream again with the chat on the right side of your screen!

If you want to join the stream, you have to have a google account. When you click my link, your webcam (if you have one) will start up and show your face. Don't worry! I can't see you! Just turn off the camera by clicking the cam icon and then hit "join". If you have a mic, I can hear you. Turn that off before you join if you don't want to be heard. If you want to talk to me without using the mic, there is a chat box where you can type things to me. HOWEVER, I can't see it when I'm drawing! I do take a minute to look at it ever few minutes so please don't feel like I'm ignoring you.

Basically if you want to talk directly to me, your best bet is using your mic and talking to me. Don't be shy, we have fun here! :D

You can DRAW and SHARE your screen too! Just go to the "screen share" icon on the right side of the screen. We can see you draw even when I'm drawing!

I hope you like the stream! I always have a good time.

I never had this happen before, but if someone gets disrespectful or starts fighting with anyone I'll kick you out or end the stream entirely! Please don't be a jerk.

There are also only 9 spots in the stream! If it's full, you can't get in! So come early.
Going to be streaming in a few minutes! This will be a page stream so SPOILERS AHEAD! For streams I typically turn the dialog off so all you'll see is the art. I'm a little behind on this page, but I'll get it done. The coloring won't be as difficult as the last one.
Sister Sister-board sketches-distance models by CrystalCircle
Sister Sister-board sketches-distance models
My response to a forum on Comic Fury. Basically it called for us to sketch our characters without using an eraser or any kind of pre-drawn guide...which is what my boards are! These are snip-its of future pages' distance shots of characters. Close-up shots--> fav.me/da75fx9

The purpose of these sketches is to just get the basic shapes of the characters down. It makes no sense to put a lot of detail into bare-bones sketches. It's a waste of time as detailing comes with more refined sketches.

Preview for next week's page!

If you haven't yet, check out Ch-1-25 on the site now!--> sistersister.thecomicseries.co…

The title for the next page is "Fascinating"

*Dragon tips and advice ahead!*
People noticed that I tend to give my dragons the behavior of other animals. Most frequently I give them the body language of dogs because they are universally recognizable and so are their movements and expressions. Snarling, raising a lip (showing teeth) and getting in each other's faces are aggressive/dominant canine behaviors and submissive behaviors are lowered heads and ears and tail between the legs...look no further than this page here where I really tried to bring out Flare's behavior over Ash's. fav.me/d9pvewp Reptiles don't really do a lot in terms of behavior besides hissing, flicking the tail or head or snapping. Giving dragons other behaviors and body languages give them more personalty, expressions, and are easier for people to read. Nothing wrong with giving dragons strictly reptilian behaviors, but if you really want to animate them and really bring out what emotions they are feeling, put a little canine attitude in them. It's fun to play with all the expressions this opens up!

I'm between commissions and art for cons right now soooo...I need something to do while I do my work. I've been meaning to do a critique/review of some comics as well as have someone critique/review Sister Sister as well.

You guys are always free to critique my comic and give me advice and stuff :D I actually really appreciate it.

As for me doing reviews and critiques, I'm going to give you a heads up...I'm brutally honest. I've had several pretty hard core English and engineering classes that had me do critiques and reviews as assignments. Only ask me for a critique if you can take some constructive criticism because I will be doing that. I don't want to hurt your feelings or anything, but sometimes you got to swallow a bitter pill to improve on your work. I do balance my critiques and reviews with both negatives (things I don't like or think you can improve on) and positives (things I like/love and things you should keep doing or do more often).

Note: these reviews can be private (via note) or public (on a journal entry. Also a note: I have 1,000+ watchers! Having your review be made public may get your comic some attention ;)

These are things I critique in a comic as well as questions I ask myself about it:

Art-quality and clarity. Can I follow this? Are movements confusing? Are the poses too stale? Are emotions and body language easy to read? After all, comics say more with images not words.

Page layout- are the panels well organised? Do they flow and transition nicely?

Overall pacing- does the story suddenly jump from place to place? Or does it smoothly transition?

Story- is it clear and understandable? Is it interesting? Is it original?

Dialog- Is it easy to read and understand who is saying what? Are the speech bubbles easy to read without taking up too much space? Are there any spelling or grammatical errors?

Overall impression- Would I read this? Do I want more? Was I bored? Was I intrigued? 

Please only show my YOUR comic! I don't want to critique someone else's story without their permission. Also if you want me to tell you more about a certain aspect of your work (ie: You want me to look at your art because you feel like you could improve in some way) just let me know and I'll do a more in depth look at that subject. 

Feel free to tell a friend about this if you think they would want their comic looked at :D

Also if your comic is long (over 100 pages) I may only read up to a hundred pages and do a review based on what I read so far. I don't have time to read incredibly long stories at the moment (I will if I really enjoy it though).

I'll be doing three for now. It may take me a bit to go through them if they are longer.
1.)Private review (working on)
2.):iconnobodygoddammit: Nina and Jack
3.):iconanaspieinpoland: Count-Wallenrod

First come first serve! I won't be taking any reservations for additional spots because I may not do this again for a very long time.
