Nooooo I think my tablet is finally dying. It still ‘works’ but I have to keep resetting it or else it gets stuck on certain tools. It was a good 6 years~
godsmorphine asked: I'm studying for an anatomy test and I swear the only reason I will remember any of the adductor names is because of your characters.
They are happy to help! :D
There’s a new dog park opening (I think in the spring?) near me. It’s a dog park that is only for service dogs! I can’t wait to bring Nalla there, she’s going to have a blast :)
Check it out here.
This is amazing! I usually just have to pick really unpopular times to take Shiloh to regular dog parks.

Almost done with Parka Patty update~ I got a little thrown off over Thanksgiving but it allowed me to get a lot done on Trying Human.
kjackice asked: I'm really like your line art, what brush or brush settings do you use?
I use the G Brush in Manga Studio with a pretty small correction (2 to 6).
weepingkind-movedtopetrichorally asked: Addition to previous ask: I'm a dumb and found that you're using Bandicam. So let me edit my question: is Bandicam able to do really high quality? Basically, is it worth the $39 bucks listed on the website? :B
Bandicam works for me and I think the quality for the price is decent. I’ve never had an issue with it so far as recording is concerned. The only thing I’ve noticed is that it remembers your settings from the previous recording so if you’re going to be changing things up a lot, you’ll have to remember to reset and check everything before you start. I don’t really mess with the settings other than to turn the mic on and off so it just depends on how you want to use it.
Dave wanted me to put his Japanese essay on my Tumblr. He needs to get his own Tumblr. Anyway, this is about his hometown, Oil City.
私の出身は、ペンシルベニアのオイル・シティです。 オイル・シティはとても小さいです。 オイル・シティの近くでオイルはみつけて、とてもいそがしいでした。 でも、今、のはしずかです。 あれで一万ぐらい人に住んでいます。 オイル・シティがあまりありません。 でも、たくさんおもしろい家やゴーストタウンや少しアミシュの人があります。 子どもの時、よく、フォレストでさんぽしたり、たくさん本を読んだり、みずうみでつりをしたりしました。 休みに帰って、かぞくに会ったり、ゆきの中であそんだり、ペンシルベニア・ダッチのりょうりを食べたり、インリング・ビールを飲んだりしたいです。

basketcaseofknivesandpens asked: Hey Emy, I've watched quite a few of your videos and I saw in your about page that you use an intuos 3, I wanted to know what your opinion on cintiq 13hd would be, thank you for taking your time to read this :D (and by the way I LOVE your thumbnails and pretty much all of your art)
I’m personally not a big fan of cintiqs (or cintiq-like setups) so I always stick to the intuos setup. I have a Samsung Slate that I use when I watch TV but generally I don’t like to have my hand over my work space.
And thank you!
A tool that I’ve found is really handy is a called the Cash Clock. It’s a simple program that measures both the time that you’re working on a piece as well as how much money you should be earning. You can adjust the hourly wage to whatever you feel is right. Simply start the clock whenever you begin working on a project right up until you’re finished. It can give you a clear indication of what you should charge for commissions.
No artist should make below minimum wage for their artwork.
The Cash Clock is found as a download here.

Now all I have to do is figure out what my hourly rate is… hmmm…
