Anonymous asked: Hi! I hope this doesn't sound too weird, but I had a dream that you were the Vampire Witch Queen and you were absolutely terrifying. I thought you might like to know that you can actually be scary sometimes in a roundabout sort of way, even though you are adorable.

gothiccharmschool:

Thank you for telling me this!

::glares at family::

See? SEE? Other people understand that I can be terrifying when I choose. Adorable, yet terrifying. 

I AM THE NIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT!

Bless. Course you are. Even if your bunny is more evil than you are.

annabellioncourt asked: asdfghjkl you're an Alien fan too!

gothiccharmschool:

OF COURSE I AM. Yes, the facehuggers set off all of my arachnophobia because of the legs and how they move, but Alien and Aliens are fantastic movies. And the RealHusband is a huge, HUGE fan of them - he once did sample pages for an Aliens comic, and if we’d had the money at the time, he would have purchased the “life-size” bust of the Alien Queen from Sideshow Collectibles. (Where we would have put it, I don’t know.)

(Pssst! Peeps, go to the RealHusband’s tumblr and reblog the goblin pictures! He did a fantastic job with them, and more people should see them!)

Frenden makes the finest brushes I’ve found for Manga Studio. They’re a pleasure to work with and are the primary tools I’m using for creating the goblin deck for the Pairs Kickstarter.

I’m happy to announce new Manga Studio 5 and Clip Paint Art Marker and Dry Media brushes! Get them here! Reblog for a chance at a free set.

Manga Studio has the most amazing brush engine of any drawing app I’ve ever used, but, let’s face it, the default brushes sort of stink. I’ve…

Chronological iterations on a hand lettered logo design. Old to new, top to bottom.

I refined the letters gradually and then began working on sketches for the accompanying mark.The first tree was too busy at small sizes.

The advice at the top of that screenshot is some of the best I’ve ever heard and it applies to almost anything.

The snippet of advice at the top is one of the most interesting twists on that adage that I’ve seen in a long time.

::screams:: I NEED THEM. YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH I NEED THEM. I could wave the Jack Crawford one at people and shout things like "WHAT KIND OF CRAZY ARE YOU?"
OMG I want them all. DIRE RAVENSTAG!

Yes, it’s real. It was announced on Bryan Fuller’s twitter.Also, take note, only the last figure is the SDCC exclusive. The rest are general release.

This will not apply to all art professionals (and certainly should not be taken as good advice by some) but it won’t hurt them either. All this message has to do is help decrease the number of “I’ll pay you in publicity” offers from people who are trying to sell ice to [Inuit], so to speak. Maybe it might even result in a few more artists getting paid for their work?

"You don’t pay IN publicity, you pay FOR publicity."

*salutes*

Reblogging this for all my fellow freelancers!
(Unfortunately, we are unable to feed our cats in publicity.)

Oh, amen.

Also, damn cats, eat your publicity!

Don’t. Fuck up. Shipping.

evilsoutherngentleman:

Today I figured out a better way of handling shipping costs, and cash reserves to cover them. It’s so incredibly tempting to say “FUCK IT” and push forward faster. Patience is key.

A leading destroyer of product-based companies is not understanding fulfillment. 

If you want evidence: watch how many Kickstarter projects become ruined, despite having giant piles of cash.

That, and poorly-costed stretch goals will sink a project every time.
