United States

I'm a recent graduate of art school, model, and a let's player. While I'm not sure what I'll be doing career wise with my art in the future, I have plenty of personal projects I'll be working on, most of which are comics. And I greatly enjoy a good chat, writing, costume making, and art trades.

I'm an executive fangirl and Director of the F.C.I. [Female Character Inspector] branch of the Better Characters Bureau. We work closely with the Department of Well Developed Stories (or D.W.D.S.). And yes, I made all this up on my own, haha. XD

I get a lot of comments about my username. Yes I enjoy tea, but the name actually comes from the first animation I ever made, involving poorly drawn stick figures drinking tea and killing each other. Much to the fortune of humanity this animation has since been lost, otherwise I might be tempted to share a link. :giggle:
Interests

Happy International Women's Day everyone!


You read that title correctly! Since joining the Lady Bugs [women's comic creators group] I have contributed to their latest anthology* that is getting its official debut and book signing TODAY!

*Anthology (ăn-thŏlˈə-jē): n. A collection of literary or artistic pieces, such as short stories, plays, or comics [plus a few pinups, which is where I contributed].

Please wish me luck! It's my first book signing, and if you are near the Manhattan Beach, California area please come say hi and check out the book in person!

The book is called the MANthology, and here is the promotional poster for the book signing taking place today:

Thanks David Moreno for making us a flyer!

But Tea, what is the MANthology, and why should I care?


HOW DARE Y I'm glad you asked! A few Lady Bugs put together this promo comic to help explain why we made the MANthology, I hope it peaks your interest!

If you are at all interested in purchasing a copy of the MANthology of your very own, send me a note for details!

Geronimo Progress 5
There are 10 weeks left in the Jak and Daxter OC Cosplay Contest [which coincidentally has been nominated for the Shakespearian Brevity Fail Award :giggle:]! jakanddaxter-oc-club.deviantar…

This week These last two+ weeks I finished the second boot cuff, finished the mace label, and finished the beer label. I placed the beer label the way I did so you could see the tiny details. And I ATTEMPTED to make her skull gem using Worbla's Transp-Art, but only to disastrous results. I spent a LOT of time tinting the material and making that "mold" I guess it is. So unfortunately that didn't work out. But I learned! And am researching other avenues and talking to people about how they would do it. Unfortunately they use lots of prop making words I don't know. :ohnoes: The idea of actually making a mold and casting something totally scares and confuses me.

I also found the PERFECT feaux leather material for her costume, but given the amount of time left and my lack of time I'm sure I'll be sticking with the jacket and boot cuffs I already put a ton of time into. But in the future I'll have an amazing and completely accurate Geronimo jacket and boot cuffs! :D

What's left for Geronimo's costume? Her contacts are on their way and should arrive any day now! So I need to test them out [and I updated all my makeup so a wig and makeup test are also needed], still need to put the holes in the sides of her pants, attach the mace and beer labels to their canister and bottle [and have them printed], and the skull gem and harness that attaches the gem to her belt [but I can't make the harness until I have the completed skull gem ugh].

What do I hope to accomplish by next week? Practice using latex to hide the seams of the ears I'll be using, practice coloring my eyebrows and a makeup and wig test, finally put those holes in her pants, and further researching the best way to make the skull gem.

I DIDN'T DRAW THE ARTWORK! It's a gorgeous commission by the amazing :iconellelopez:: ellelopez.deviantart.com/art/G… I just wanted to show the comparison of my cosplay handy work vs. drawn Geronimo, because ElleLopez just so nailed her design.

Just more visuals for the weekly reminder journal that :iconjakanddaxter-oc-club: is currently hosting a cosplay contest.

Old vs. New: Writing
Sorry the writing is so small. I was working with existing PDFs and stuff and didn't want to reformat everything or type it up from scratch.

I was hoping someone would see this and feel better about their artistic journey, since so many of us compare ourselves to others and can be hard on ourselves for not doing better or being better.

I was around 19 when I wrote the scene on the left. After college, a few writing classes, and in general collecting more life experience I re-wrote the same scene last year when I was 24/25 and really working on Geronimo's story. Is it amazing? No, but it doesn't have to be.

I started training in a martial art recently, and my teacher told me to not worry about being perfect and to not be hard on myself for getting it wrong. Where was I expected to have learned it before? In what logic am I supposed to be a master already?

After Comic Con and the Jak and Daxter OC Cosplay Contest I'm going to go back to the art I owe and working hard on art again. STILL haven't finished the anthology comic ugh.

Geronimo Progress 4
I can't believe it's my birthday month and I made more progress on Geronimo! Like at this rate she might be showing up to San Diego Comic Con lol.

This week I sewed the shirt and the boots, I possibly could've cropped the boots shorter but I like how they came out! From afar, don't look at either up close [I super duper don't know how to sew!]. :giggle: I made the knife holster for the right boot, but it'll be attached by hidden safety pins so I can walk around cons without having to worry about security. And I wouldn't like seeing an empty holster and not being allowed to put a knife in it. I also created the mace holster using a lot less material than I originally thought I would and am definitely happy with that. And I finished one of the blue boot cuffs! Now I have to make the second one ugh [tedious]. Precursor orb just because. :P

What's left for Geronimo's costume? Getting contacts [which I'm still on the fence about but will likely go through with], the second boot cuff, holes in the sides of her pants, and the skull gem and harness that attaches the gem to her belt.

What do I hope to accomplish by next week? Practice using latex to hide the seams of the ears I'll be using, practice coloring my eyebrows, progress on the second boot cuff, finish the mace label and brainstorm the best way to print and attach it to the canister [same with the already finished beer label], and brainstorming on the skull gem. I think I'll end up making the skull gem two ways and see which way looks best.

I DIDN'T DRAW THE ARTWORK! It's a gorgeous commission by the amazing :iconellelopez:: ellelopez.deviantart.com/art/G… I just wanted to show the comparison of my cosplay handy work vs. drawn Geronimo, because ElleLopez just so nailed her design.

So, here is my part of the IMHO task, and I thank you too for giving me an opportunity and reason to do it. :)

At first, allow me to express admiration for the range of art themes and mediums you use.
For your drawings, you have a great talent for setting an atmosphere and mood by colours and facial expressions; Fear, Prom and Até:Guess who are good examples. I also like the diversity of your characters, which are detailed and complete, despite the amount of them (good job on this, I´m unable to do so).
As for the drawing method itself, I admire your figure drawing, the correct anatomy and proportions of characters, it´s a ´difficult things to master, the more in dynamic poses. Plus the colouring and lineart are really neat. :clap: .
..and you´re getting better, it´s visible in the course of OC-Training in each posted piture.

As for the critique, I think your art would benefit from adding more complex backgrounds to your pictures - Fear is a good example of it. Also, don´t be afraid to use darker and more numerous hues when shadowing, blending them a bit more, it would add even more depth and life to painting.

All in all, you are doing great job, continually improving, and I´m looking forward for more of your art!
