days 14-20 of inktober. all these (and more) are from my instagram.

two more of sets i helped make are out!

bashful bailey and fearless fatima for the class of monsters!

probably my favorite CI so far, for obvious reasons, everyone on the gaia team did a really great job, i’m so in love with all the sets that came out today!

book?

if i did a kickstarter to print a book, would you prefer if it were a:

1. sketchbook (high quality print book of some of my favorite sketchbook pages)

2. art book (finished illustrations)

3. a combination of the previous two

new items added to my shop, old items restocked!

thanks to everyone who’s been bearing with me during my move, i finally have all my merchandise restocked, all my packing material in, found my new post office, got (pretty much) everything in order!

i’ve added and restocked original art, pokemon buttons, the gravity falls button, and madoka art!

check ‘em out in my store!  almost all the money spent in my store goes directly to me and helps me keep my personal projects (mostly monster pop!) going!

lupified asked: In your recent Monster Pop update I just laughed so hard over the sailor moon poster with tuxedo mask as the damsel in distress. I'd love to see just that blown up.

that print is available in my storenvy!

scyf asked: Hey Maya! Thanks for doing monster pop first of all<3. Your webcomic is one of the ones that is inspiring me to work on my own project now! I'm super excited about how the art style is developing over time, too, it's hella awesome. (also, a quick remark, i find myself often squinting a bit trying to make out what marinas eyes are doing - i know the shades are on purpose but its something that often keeps me looking at the pages longer haha)

aww gosh thanks!

buff-akane asked: Ink is one of my favorite mediums and your line work astounds me. What tools do you use? I'm assuming bushes perhaps? Do you have any tips on how you make your lines as neat as you do? Do you ever make mistakes with your line work on a project you can't throw away? and how do you fix it? Sorry I'm asking a lot of questions, but I really admire your inktober artwork and I really want my ink artwork to flow as well as yours.

thanks! my materials are linked on my FAQ.  as for inking tips, it’s really just a lot of practice. i don’t naturally have a very steady hand so it’s  taken a lot of patience and practice for me to get anything near decent results, especially since i naturally stitch my lines (instead of drawing one smooth line i tend to do a lot of smaller, rougher ones) so my learning how to ink has basically just been a long boring process of figuring out how to stitch less and disguise my stitching when i do do it (which is still a lot). four years ago, my inking looked like this. so just. practice and work hard. and rotate your drawing surface so your hand doesn’t smudge your work (that is the most painful thing ever).
