I post something like this about once a year, because I get a lot of messages from people who enjoy my art but feel guilty about not buying things from my store or subscribing on Patreon or getting things from my wishlist, etc. You really don’t need to do ANY of those things to help us out! Eyeballs on artwork is what we want, and just that is really helpful. But there are lots of other, free things you can do, if you want to, that will help us.
- You can reblog our work, with credit! Tumblr, Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, showing people next to you in class or at the library, whatever. The more you reblog our stuff, any kind of stuff, and especially if it has a name and/or link attached, the more followers we get, the happier we are, and the easier we can sell art and pay rent. This is such a vital part of our continued existence and it is difficult to overstate how grateful we are when it happens.
- You can like, comment, subscribe on Youtube, reply on Twitter, and generally make our little numbers go up. Even if you don’t want a drawing on your blog, hitting “Like” helps. If people are browsing your liked posts (if you have this option available in your sidebar or in a separate page) they will see our work. Additionally, higher note counts translate instantly to “more worthy of being looked at” when parsed by an idle, browsing brain. That’s the price of being a member of a social species, and it stinks because it doesn’t reflect “quality” or “innate value” of art, whatever that is, but a post with 4 digit notes is going to get more positive regard than a post with a 2 digit notecount. And really, it makes sense. If lots of people like a thing, it is likely, if only statistically, that you will too.
- You can talk about your favorite artists to your friends. A lot of us idle on skype and irc all day, talking about new album releases and games and twitter beef. It doesn’t occur to a lot of us to talk about how so-and-so just did a cartoon of a fat bird that is making our day slightly better, but that URL pastes just as easily into the chat as any other. Don’t be annoying about it, but like Homeland Security always says, if you see something, say something!
- You can look at/click the ads on our websites. You can disable AdBlock on our websites, too. I have two little Project Wonderful boxes at the top of my blog. They pay me very little per day, but when I need $20 to stop an overdraft fee or buy a food, Project Wonderful has my back. This has happened about a dozen times, enough to teach me the value of having that last, tiny bit of cash just slowly snowballing in the background.
There is probably other stuff that I’m forgetting, so please feel free to reblog and add them.
That moment when you start to do a warm-up sketch of one of your OCs and it’s been so long that you suddenly forgot how she was supposed to look…
setsu-p, I’ll never forgive you ;D
Hit shuffle on your iPod, media player, or phone and write down the first 10 songs. Then pass it on to 10 people. No skipping.

30 Day Anime Challenge - Day 27 - Most Badass Scene from Any Anime Character
Achika releases her Jurian powers to defeat Cain at the end of the movie Tenchi Muyo In Love.
The first Tenchi movie is one of those movies I caught on the SciFi channel when they aired anime on the weekends back in the early/mid-90s. I have always ALWAYS loved this moment. It is really the best part of the whole film in my opinion. We’ve spent the whole TV series knowing that Tenchi’s mother is dead so to meet her and see just how amazing she is—it takes my breath away even to this day.
There’s a reason my first post on Tumblr was my cosplay of her. It’s not perfect but it was a dream costume of mine for so many years so to finally do it was an amazing feeling. Hopefully this little clip will explain why :)
I agree so much! This was the best moment — and personally, I am not ashamed to say that this is the scene/s (and possibly movie) that made me realize how important music couple with movement, emotion and visible expressions were in art. (I was a wee babe, so imagine that! Ah, the time of VHS tapes…)
Also, finally seeing Achika in action was always worth watching this movie again and again.

I have a hard time keeping up with these. >.>
Peeps, go check out mah friend Loom’s comic! Such a great storyteller and artist <3 If you feel nostalgic for a 90sesque way of storytelling (the good kind), then definitely check out Vampire Fetish! (PS It’s not that kind of fetish, promise.)
