ƒ - Do people ever mistake you for another age?
Yes, so many times. People thought I was 13 years old like I graduated from junior high. Literally, 13 years old. Gosh I wish Ariana Grande was here with me. I guess that’s a complement about the way I look.
Also some thought I was about 14 or 15.

Despite of the fandom troubles, I’ve been feeling like this since the beginning of 2014. (I knew I should have moved on to something different long ago) Nowadays, this feeling is like a roller coaster but somehow right up till this day, it came back. I know that I never post anything like this, which is strange. So here is a serious comic—not making any shits n giggles on this one (please take this in consideration). On the other hand, I’m feel happy inside that 2k+ people are watching me on DA mainly because of my artworks, but it saddens me that once I leave the fandom, I’m abandoning basically the majority of the fans and most of my efforts of getting this far. It’s also sad to see good things come and go but that’s part of life. Lately, I’ve decided that I’ll make an official statement whether or not I’ll quit the Creepypasta Fandom. On a side note, once I quit, I’ll never go back (that happens to all of my fandoms). I stated in my past journals that once I go to college, I won’t be part of the fandom WHICH I’m NOT entirely sure (it depends). I forgot to state that I might go on a long hiatus and my account will be very inactive same with my tumblr account or other case scenarios, deactivate both of them and recreate new ones.
This comic is mainly for myself (nothing too personal) also it is a representation of my life decisions, but if by chance you relate to this, just leave a comment below. Here, I’m not trying to discourage Creepypasta fans to give up their fandom (NOTE: a year in a half is long enough for me). The only reason why I said this message is because of disinterest. I’ve heard that people quit because of disrespect as well. As far as I know, that’s not the case for me.
One little friendly reminder: Go where your gut feels. :)
The first three steps are just sketches, make sure thats how you want to position the eyes. The fourth step is to make a rough outline. Fifth through seventh is a black and white shading and highlights. After the seventh step, I added an overlay on both step eight and nine. On step ten, I want to make the white of his eye black so I used multiply to make it darker. Step eleven is retouching the iris make it brighter so the eye would stand out. And last but not least, step twelve is optional. I added the eyelashes, and blood since that’s how he is depicted.
Hope this helps anon. ;)
Any tips for beginner/not a lot of experienced artists that want to draw more realistically?
The biggest tip I would give to you have a basic understanding of drawing and shading. It’s good to look up some reference maybe people, for example, celebrities. It’s better to go black and white so you could easily understand the concept of shading. Afterwards, you could overlay it with color. For me, it’s the simplest step instead of just straightforward coloring the shading. If you look at this video I did for Jeff the killer you’ll probably understand why I went straight on with B&W first.
