I’ll be concentrating on game development/projects for the month of August; so I probably will not be updating until September.
I want to prove my mum wrong
I find short hair on women incredibly sexy.
I’m painfully aware that there are still people who believe women can’t have short hair.
I don’t usually talk about personal life stuff, but someone gave me a really hard time today because of my short hair (not the first time, I just really, really wasn’t expecting it today). So that’s renewed my energy in trying to support women with short hair through my video games/animation more than ever. Even resulted in my new visual novel game idea with a female mod protagonist (“mods” being the British 1960s youth subculture, wherein female mods are known for having short hair).
Again, this post is part of the reason why most of the female protagonists I’ve created have very short hair. While it should be just hair, it’s nice to give two good-old, blue-veined fingers up to the people who say women “shouldn’t have short hair.”
If someone ever describes my “signature style” as subverting gender expectations, I’ll be a very happy person.

I know I might seem … unreliable. Maybe I even look a little untrustworthy, too. But, I promise you, I won’t let you down. Ever. Well, I might let you down someday … but, I can assure you that today is not that day … ‘kay?
The tutorial of how I achieve watercolor effect in Sai! :) I highly recommend using real watercolor paintings (your own or ones found on the internet) as reference.
And here you can find a few useful links:

This comic I made over a year ago, but I’ve touched it up since and I’m happy to share it on tumblr C: while I’ve improved immensely since I made this, I’m still really proud of myself for making it.
ps. this was during a stage in my art where I was a little texture heavy, heh heh
Some of you are reblogging because you think its funny that programmers would talk to ducks. I’m reblogging because I think its funny picturing a programmer explaining their code, realizing what they did when they explain the bad code, then grabbing the strangling the duck while yelling “WHY WAS THE FIX THAT SIMPLE!? AM I GOING BLIND!”
AS A PROGRAMMER I CAN TELL YOU THAT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU FUCKING DO WE HAD TO BAN THE DUCKS FROM MY CLASSES BECAUSE EVERYONE WOULD FLIP THE DUCK OR THROW IT AT A WALL OR SOMETHING WHEN THEY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM IN THEIR CODE
It is under this same line of logic why Sherlock talks to a skull.
