Now Playing Tracks


Quick sketch and color of Raphael from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, managed to get it done within two hours, my maximum goal for warm ups or wind downs. I’m trying to aim for an hour, doing sketches and colors at a faster speed tends to keep my motivation going. I’m going to see what sort of warm up session I’m going to have today…

This is also done at a much lower resolution, than my usual 300dpi. Doing warm ups at 100-200dpi seems more convenient, especially since  it seems I have much better control over my strokes at lower resolution.



If 18 or 20 palettes wasn’t enough, I present to you: my 100 Palette Challenge! This is a collection of some of my favourite palettes from color-palettes and Adobe Kuler and I thought it would be really fun to have a huge variety of palettes to chose from

If you would like to participate in this challenge, I ask that you DO NOT repost this anywhere else, including deviantART; please REBLOG this instead! I have the challenge uploaded to deviantART as well, so please check it out there if you want to do it on deviantART!

Having a really, really rough weekend/week opening, and I an evening break from the work I have been doing.
Send me some love in the form of a character request and color palette number….
xoxo everyone 

Oh my goodness, the colors! Saving this for later…

Stina Rates the Movies: Splice

Splice (2009) - The pacing was super slow and the film definitely didn’t feel like a “horror flick” to me, at least not until the tail-end, where things were actually starting to get good.

There were a lot of times when I wanted to give up on watching it entirely, but it was the hybrid character Dren and her evolution throughout the story that eventually made me want to continue on with it.

My biggest gripe; how predictable it was. If it was intentional, then this shouldn’t have been labeled as a horror film, in my opinion. Thriller, maybe. 

Overall, I wasn’t really impressed. I’m glad I didn’t go to the theaters to watch this or spend money on the DVD release. I was quite disappointed. 

My Rating: ★★☆☆☆ 

(Expect more movie reviews in the future…because I want to start doing this every time I watch a movie, whether it’s something that’s been out for awhile and I’ve just seen it or something that I was actually able to catch in theaters.)
