The official tumblr blog for Tiny Gryphon Studios, a mediocre studio site for an artist who's dreaming big. You'll be seeing all of my work up on here including some drawings, sketches, digital paintings, and 3d work.

Just call me TootsieHG :D

 

30 Day Improvement Challenge

Well, so for the first night (that’s right, I’m a night owl =u=’ ) of this challenge I was to make a self portrait and introduce myself.

My name’s Amanda, but you can call me TootsieHG or just Tootsie for short. One day I want to be getting into the gaming industry working within the art department so I decided to take on this challenge as a way to help improve my skills in Digital Painting.

I did a quick drawing overall and I can’t help but feel that it really shows that I’m more of a sketch artist. Heh, well painting is something I need to work on the most, I think, so let’s see by how much this changes as time goes on. I chose blue as the primary scheme since I’m working at night and the lighting in my room is actually pretty cruddy.

The colors actually remind me of a certain song~

30 Days of Art Improvement Challenge

pencilcat:

Are you tired of feeling like your art just isn’t improving? Do you want to do a 30-day challenge that’s actually useful? Welcome to 30 Days of Improvement Hell. >:D

I made this because I’ve been feeling super ‘blah’ about my art these days, and I needed something to kick-start…

I think to help myself out in my journey to getting better in art, I’ll be trying out this challenge. I’ll be starting on Monday I think so this way I can prepare over the weekend and look into what else I can try doing.

I wonder if there’s a small challenge out there for learning coding… hmm…

SO! I’m back!

Finally I’ve got a new laptop, and after a few weeks of breaking it in, if you will, I’m going to start posting again hopefully on a weekly basis. Legit, trust me, there’s no way I’m going to run into some completely unexpected issues with this fine piece of pc ;D

That said, I’ve really gotten behind in my drawing practices and painting practices all because of these issues I’ve been having so expect to see a ton of studies popping up on here. Can’t wait to see what I can hash on out there so here’s looking forward to a new and continuous art blog!

Sabertooth mask pre-order by missmonster

This mask actually reminds me of some drawings I did when I was younger involving men and women who were basically individual grim reapers who all wore black feathered capes, and enlarged animal skull masks…

I want to try drawing those again now that I’m thinking about it…

This is also happening in Iraq right now. Many young girls are taking up arms to fight and protect their families against terrorist militants who are trying to slaughter them…


This would make… for an AMAZING movie…

Police now forcing journalist and camera crews out of Ferguson. Still tear gassing protestors and aiming rifles and shot guns at people attempting to pass them and walk home.

- PEACHES

stele3:

Ferguson Police have dogs and shotguns. The unarmed crowd is raising their hands.

For anyone not following the Mike Brown story on Twitter: a 17 year old black boy named Mike Brown, who was supposed to start college tomorrow, was shot to death in Ferguson, Missouri by police while jaywalking. He was unarmed. He was shot 9 times.

Initial media reports claimed that an 18 year old black man had been shot and killed while fleeing police after shoplifting.

People in the neighborhood, including members of Mike Brown’s family, came out of their homes and began to protest, shouting “no justice, no peace,” and keeping their hands in the air.

Media reports claimed that a violent mob quickly formed around the shooting location shouting “kill the police.”

Spread this. Tell the truth about what happened to this boy. Tell the truth about what is happening NOW. The police and the mainstream media is painting him as a criminal, and his community as a violent mob.

SPREAD THIS. Don’t let them lie.
