Okay, I originally posted these on Facebook/instagram and SketchyMagpie suggested I put them up in DT as well. Wasn't sure where to put them so photo share it is. I'm gonna copypasta the individual descriptions every time they go up bc I'm lazy to type them out thrice :3 For clarity/tidiness sake, every person I doodle gets an individual post in this thread. Please bear with me at the potential lack of update speed here. I haven't learned the tag codes for mobile browser yet + my wifi is horrible and I tend to do most of my drawing on weekends and sometimes at stupid o'clock after work. If I accidentally messed up your face or something you can totally yell at me.
EDIT: If i don't tag you it's likely because I forgot your username and I'm really sorry. I have poo brain. You can just post a reply and I'll go back and tag you properly.
So I've been part of DT for 2 years(?) and there are amazing people I absolutely adore from DT that I haven't met in person yet. So, as a quick warm up exercise I'm doodling what if I met them for the first time? What would it be like?
james is an adorably strange nugget and precious angel + his photos/posts always cheer me up. I think meeting him would be like 2 feral creatures crossing paths for the first time. But seriously I just wanna hug him so much his butt makes a wish.
The exercise actually started with James bc he was posting a lot of delightfully strange selfies on facebook
I imagined with SketchyMagpie, I'd be a little starstruck because he's such an amazing artist (and really cute!) but also, I really want to art jam with him. We have super different styles and it would be fun to see what weird shit we'll come up with!
For those who don't know, when I'm not doodling shitty comix, I'm a horror artist. (see example here.)My process is pretty much this but with more giggling/cackling.
I forgot how many cubs Kate has so I guessed it. Ditto the cubs' ages. My original guess was 100 cubs but that's -obviously- not right y'know? From cubsitting experience, with human cubs there are ALWAYS treats and I like to sit with the little ones for treats.
When I posted on facebook, apparently I got it all right yay!
I've already met Ru and she is super amazing. She came to visit me a couple years ago. I think her DT name is something like missnomad but I don't think she's really active here anymore. I'm terrible with the real-name+username matching sorry! I absolutely adore and admire Ru to the ends of the universe and back! Her make up game is also 9937593999% always strong.
Trying to upload these in one shot so I can finish inking ones for Olly and Darren tonight or before my wifi craps out. Whichever happens first
Next up is danzia I've had plans for a long while, to temporarily steal her cats for cuddles. She just got her PhD recently and is also a super awesome potter with the best looking bollocks kicking boots all the time. Looking at the shouldercats is actually one of my anxiety grounding things.
Random true story: I showed my dog pics of Gillian's shouldercats once, but she just farted in disdain and ignored me :C
Huzzah! last one for now and I can go doodle some more. kells was one of the easier ones to doodle. She's an ornithophile (loves birds) and I'm an ornithophobe (fucking terrified of birds). I guess it's safe to say that she'll likely have a lot of power and a lot more fun than I would for a while heh. eheh. heh. *fidgets nervously*
Today's warm up is a super fast one 'cause I gotta scamper off to work soon. Featuring banjo.
Originally I was a little bit stuck bc Darren is just so damned cool it makes me a little nervous. Like when the cool kid at school walks by and you just forget everything you were gonna say. Then I remembered that he was working on the prettiest patchwork blanket and always has the most magical shirts. So yeah playing dress up and watching him sew would be a thing.

@DreadlocksCo: You can get relatively instant dreads by crocheting them.

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.

rye: hi.. newbie on locks. I have 2 weeks locks but its not extension , just want to ask if it ok to do bath everyday and shampoo my dreads everyday

SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.

FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler
