Okay, so. Real talk?




I am possibly getting into the market to save up and drop some money on a new tablet, soon, from either Monoprice, Huion (either the GT-190 or GT-190S) or Yiynova brand (MSP19U is a liiittle bit at the pricier side but not out of the question..?) ‘cintiq’-like monitor is not out of the question!

But I am kind of freaking myself out trying to compare and get the best option. aaaaah DB

If anyone has good advice for my sister on her exciting possible purchase, that would be really cool!

I’ve heard really good things about Monoprice tablets! if you can/want to stretch it a bit, I have a MSP19U that I utterly adore and heartily recommend. The pen that comes with it is a little bit crap, however- the split for where you put the battery in is in the exact wrong place, and it’s kinda fragile. But when you inevitably break it, the replacement they send out is really damn good, and it cured any problem I had with the monitor as a whole.

Can’t tell you much about other tablets as I just had a bamboo fun before that (fine but I couldn’t work on it full time at all), but if you have any specific questions about the MSP19U I’m happy to help, if I can.

The good news is that the pen it comes with may have been upgraded to the new version, so that shouldn’t actually be an issue anymore. I know that it comes with the newest Yiynova, at least, and even though replacement pens on amazon, straight from the company, still have the picture of the old pen, I don’t think the old pens actually get distributed anymore. 



Oh my god, these things are the definition of rabbit hole I’m supposed to be asleep…like, five hours ago. There is something very wrong with me and how my brain processes time. D:

That aside, I made this super cute thing? It’s gonna take a lot of willpower not to waste all tomorrow making more of these.

What. When I first posted these people kept telling me that they were showing up as 4 static images. I was just scrolling through my dash and suddenly they are working??? Make up your mind, tumblr! Also now that I have said this, I bet the second I hit reblog they stop working again. >:/

I’m done inking the entire next chapter (all 38 pages yikes) and am going to start colouring them), and the last image is a preview of the August wallpapers which will be available to patrons on august 4th!



This article is heartbreaking. And true.

There is a reason I throttled back on doing a lot of creative gaming content a few years ago. And why I still avoid taking some jobs in the gaming world when they’re offered to me. And why, when we have a female host on any of our Geek and Sundry gaming shows, we have to monitor the comments on YouTube extra, to remove the many comments that are offensive and pollute our community’s spirit of equality. Because I hate that shit. 

There is an endemic acceptance in the gamer world that “well, it comes with the territory” when a woman receives threats and harassment and the hateful anonymous internet dialogue is focused on her body and whether they would “do” her or not. I don’t know why this became okay. It’s a vocal minority that has been given way too much power over the industry dialogue, and I am so happy to see more and more articles like this shining the light on what reasonable gamer men and women have been conned into accepting as a given.

NOTHING is a given in this world. And frankly, it taints the art form we so love and keeps it back from becoming more respected and more diverse to not at least TRY to fight it. Gaming deserves more than complacency in this area.

Even posting this link will cause me to receive hateful Tumblr PMs. I can always tell when something I write gets linked on certain places on the internet (like 4 Chan or a few other forums of troll-hood), because I’ll immediately get dozens of hate mails along the veins of what is posted in this article. 

Well, I’m a lucky one to be prominent enough to have 10 supporters for every hater. I mostly feel sorry for girls and women who aren’t in my position, who may just give up on gaming when they’re too beaten down to fight anymore.

We have to change that. For the good of what we love doing, gamers! Okay, back to work :)

My secret to art is that I don’t know what I’m doing 99% of the time.

This is the most awkward and the most helpful tutorial I have seen all day thank you.



Throw in a Dwarf Fortress-style fey mood or two and this is eerily reminiscent of my writing process.

Story of my life, except also with sci-fi space ships, backgrounds, containers, clothes, tools….everything. Sci-fi everything.





Introducing the Social Intelligence Test! From what I can tell, it’s sponsored by Harvard and it’s rather interesting. The basis is you look at pictures of people going through different emotions and decide what emotion they’re feeling. The trick is, you can only see their eyes.

How well can you read people? I never thought I was good at it, but I scored rather high on this test. It was a very interesting experience! I highly recommend taking this!

31 out of 36. I got some repeating images which made me second guess myself, but otherwise it seemed pretty straight forward. Neat, though!
