To my male co-workers: Fuck all y’all.
Reblogging this not only for artists but also for people who write werewolf (and other animal transformation) fiction. If a human turned into a wolf, their knee joints would not reverse— what some fic writers mistake for the knee is actually the ankle. A wolf’s hind feet are relatively long, and they are always walking in way roughly analogous to human “tip-toeing.”
For anyone curious, the artist is Marshall Vandruff and he has a free webinar up on Imaginarium as well as dvds from Gnomon Workshop!
Professor Vandruff it is starting to freak me out that I’m running into so much of your stuff all over the place and I’m super sorry I flunked out of your watercolor class (but dang thanks because I found some of my stuff from that class and you were a really good teacher) and also thank you because trying to draw my dog has been driving me crazy.
Exhausted Cycloptress has no time for your beauty culture bullshit, she just wants to watch an episode of Kitchen Nightmares and then sleep for a week. Fucking argonauts, fucking up her day.
Ballet is all about the lines, yo.
DELICIOUS DISPOSABLE CULTURE.
Here, have some late Inktober nightmares

Hi, and thank you! Sorry for your dad and I hope everyone is getting through it as okay as they can.
I am getting lots of these and can’t respond to them all but THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who is writing me about the comic. Y’all are awesome and kicking so much ass at caring for yourselves and your loved ones.
XOXOXO, You’re all amazing.
I think I’m mostly doing inktober now to see exactly how much my drawings creep my husband out. It’s a surprising bonus benefit.

I didn’t quite know how to draw a Short Mermaid but I tried and so here is a Lionfish mermaid. Lionfish are venomous but not poisonous. Lionfish are an invasive species in the Atlantic. Lionfish females can lay up to 2 million eggs in their lifetime. Lionfish have decorative spots and big frilly fins that are nature’s way of saying “I worked hard on this and if you eat it I will fuck up your day with intense pain and convulsions.” There are nine different species of Lionfish, some of which have clear fins. Lionfish are classified as scorpionfish, which is totally bitchin. Lionfish are also called Turkeyfish and Butterfly-Cod in some places, which is too bad because Butterfly-Cod is a painfully stupid name for a kind of fish.
The mermaid is wearing a top made of kelp. Kelp has buoys that allow it to float. Kelp is an important foodsource for many marine animals. Kelp doesn’t have a vascular system but I drew veins before I realized that.
Thank you for reading some facts about Lionfish and fewer facts about kelp.
I pulled Rad Vampire, so that’s what you get. Inktober day 15.
