Some Danny Pink for your dash. Cannot wait to see him.
10 minute comic because I can’t be the only one getting fed up with people asking PCap about his age.
benedict-cumbersomerobes Wow, this a tricky one.. I’ve actually been planning a Youtube video on it, because I’ve been asked that a lot recently but here’s a basic sort of summary. Thing.
Firstly, draw everything. When you’ve got a basic knowledge of people and trees and cars and cabbages and kings, then you’ll find that when you want to draw something you don’t need to rely too heavily on reference. Your drawings will be in the way you see the world.. You’ll find you’ll leave out the bits you do not find important and emphasise those you do.
Then experiment, with different techniques and materials. Find out how you enjoy working. Digital or traditional. Pencils or paint. Colour or black and white.
Look at lots of art. When you find something you like, analyse why you like it. Is it the colours? The way they draw hands? The way they compose pictures? This will give you an idea about your art preferences, which ultimately influences your style. Don’t pass others stuff off as your own, just use it as an inspiration
Keep developing. Naturally, your style should evolve and change as you learn more and see more art. Don’t ever feel stuck in one way of working.
Hopefully that’s some sort of help. Just a few rough points. Style, or finding your artistic voice is a tricky thing. You work for years and then suddenly you realise it’s just sort of happened. :)
Doctor Who sketch cards.. I did draw Nine, but I accidentally spilt tea on him :( Not “fantastic”.
I am very excited after seeing behind the scenes photos of Capaldi rocking the punk look.
This got reblogged by the official doctorwho lot. AND they got the “GuiTARDIS” pun too!
So yeah, the amount of people who don’t mind my drawings popping up on their dashboard has the little kid in me dropping his jaw. Sending an ask wishing good morning to each of you would take almost three hours. Then it wouldn’t be morning anymore; that’s how serious the situation has become.
This is a good point in my life for celebrating stuff like this, considering I’m going to start applying for proper artist jobs for the first time in my life. So after every failed interview, I’ll be able to console myself: “Maybe they don’t like me, but hey, a THOUSAND people want to see what I draw next!”
To let you guys join me in the celebratory business, The Qwerty Prophecy will be holding a giveaway. Drawing-y stuff, since I’m assuming that’s what you guys like around here.
The randomly generated lucky person will receive a free commission and a high-quality print, i.e. they can tell me to draw something and instead of being a lazy bastard, I’ll actually do it, and post a tangible copy to them so they can draw moustaches on it.
Two others blessed by the lord of dice will receive a print of their choosing, from any of my previous non-commissioned drawings and fanart.
To enter, reblog this post. Each reblog counts as an entry. The giveaway ends on SEPTEMBER 5TH. I will contact the winners via the ask box; if their box is closed or their reply takes over 24 hours, I’ll re-roll. After the announcement of the winners, the prints should arrive as soon as the printing company and the mailman allow.
The item: As featured in A Scandal in Begravia, Sherlock’s Woburn 8 dressing gown in navy blue satin-silk stripe, by Derek Rose.
"The Woburn is a pure silk men’s dressing gown with a satin stripe design, featuring a shawl collar, breast pocket and two side pockets. One of our most popular classic robes, the Woburn epitomises timeless, refined elegance, striking the perfect balance between luxury and simplicity. We think it makes the perfect sleepwear add-on for any gentleman’s wardrobe."
Item details: It is a size Large, and has only been worn once, when I tried it on for several minutes. It will come packaged in its original box and ribbon.
- Likes, comments, and reblogs all count, but you must be following me.
- You must be willing to disclose an address where I can send the item, should you win.
- On that note, I’ll need to notify the winner so make sure your ask boxes are open (or will be open). I will give the winner 48 hours to respond before I pick another winner. If necessary I will continue in this manner until I reach someone.
- I will pick the winner using an online random number generator.
- I will do that at the very end of this month: midnight BST on the 1st of September.
- I will do international shipping.
This is my first giveaway so if I’ve left out any pertinent information, let me know and I’ll do my best to fix it!
Good luck :)
PS If the winner is so inclined, I’ll also include this sealed bottle of Jessica nail varnish in the color 222 Winter Berries, which is what Lara Pulver wore as Irene Adler in this episode.

"Figure out a way to attach these.. together" How about via the void?
I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.
