If you came here from the forums, please know that I don't go looking at any of your pages looking for something to use in our discussion. And I think you are creepy as fuck for digging around my page looking for ammunition for a debate happening in the forums.

All characters, writing, and artwork here, unless otherwise noted, belongs to me. You may also draw these characters, or color any of the pictures here, and display them in your gallery, but you may not profit off them. I mean, hell, I'm not, why should you? Also, a link back here would be nice.

I used to look at the galleries and try to provide some comment for anyone who collected one of my pictures to their favorites. However, I don't really have much time to do that anymore. I would be delighted to look at your gallery and provide any tips that I can, just leave a comment or send a note. I draw as a HOBBY. I am not a professional. The tips I give you will be little things that other people told me. You would serve yourself better checking out some other tutorials, but if you just have a simple question or want a bit of advice, I can actually give that without being a total bitch, contrary to popular belief.

About Critiques. I grade all critique categories 5/5. All of them. Because I don't care about star-ratings. There's actually a decent reason for this. I feel like the critiques are supposed to be thoughtful written responses that go in-depth. By adding in an arbitrary grading system, I feel like that detracts from the strength of the critique, and artists may get hung up on the fact that they only got three stars in 'vision'. What does that even mean? So all categories get rated 5/5, and then I will (no foolin'!) write out a real critique for you. I will tell you what I think works in the picture and tell you what I think you should change. I only write critiques for pictures that I actually enjoy, so if I wrote one for you, I obviously like your picture, even if I'm telling you to change something in it.

I don't want to date you. Thought I would just mention that. Off-hand. As awkwardly as possible. Moving on...

I don't do commissions, trades, or requests. Unless I feel like it. I probably will not feel like it. Fair warning.

Lastly, I swear I am actually a nice person and genuinely able to take criticism. If you have suggestions or critiques for any of my pieces, please comment and leave them. I will actually pay attention to what you say and strive to improve with it. I generally reply to comments with a "thank you" even if they are super creepy. Ya'll can leave your super creepy comments if you like, but I reserve the right to be privately creeped out by them. Big time. Just because I draw naked girls, that doesn't mean I want to hear you guys talk about that stuff you talk about.

You know what I mean.

(Wait, oh no, is this a roleplay group? I just really rarely draw fan art and wanted to find a place to share my Agent Carter stuff. There's surprisingly few groups for this fandom! ...I want to draw more Peggy but I gotta color this last one.)

Just so we're clear, my vegan boyfriend is okay with me killing humans, but not animals.
