friending meme, crossposting logistics and drawble offer

[personal profile] st_aurafina is a hosting friending meme, and if you found my journal through that: welcome!

I've recently stopped crossposting to IJ (I doubt anybody noticed), because I haven't actively used that site in ages, and I have decided to disable comments on my LJ crossposts. I'm sorry if you prefer LJ for interacting, but DW has been my main journal for a long time now and I don't have my full range of icons on LJ, which I really miss when commenting there, and I'm not likely to ever pay them for icon slots again, so the recent developments gave me the push to limit commenting in one place.

It's not so much that LJ moved their servers as such, as that they don't even care enough anymore to do any announcements for their users about the move or the glitches so many experienced in either the English or the Russian LJ news. It seems a bad idea to add non-duplicated content in an infrastructure that the owners care about so little.

Finally, as always with the beginning of a year, I have good intentions to draw things, and I've noticed that it has been about three years (!) since I last offered any drawbles, so I thought it would be fun to do the drawble meme again.

The original format is as follows:

1. Comment and I'll pick one or two of your DW interests and draw you a picture.
2. You have no say as to what I draw for you or as to how much it will suck.
3. Copy this and the pic that is drawn for you into your journal. (Optional)

You can also prompt me, for example if you don't list interests, but prompts tempt people to ask for fanart they'd really like to see (their favorite rare pairing or character or such), and that ends with disappointment for everybody. Them, because they get a doodle totally mangling their cherished idea, and me because I feel inadequate at fulfilling a real wish.

The reason I like these drawbles in the first place is because they allow me to do absurd little doodles that aren't demanding, so I don't experience that vicious-cycle that I get with "proper fanart": feeling I suck because (of course) drawing attempts never look like what you imagine with your idea, and then never draw anything and thus never get any better.

Anyway, you can offer prompts to me instead going with your interests, but keep in mind that these are quick doodles, so for a prompt that is a description of some epic scene you've always wanted to see realized in fanart the results aren't going to very satisfying for you (or much fun for me). Also, I don't draw porn, and I'm not good at portrait likeness.

If you want to see the quality (or lack thereof, especially considering how very rusty I am) you can expect, look at the drawble tag or my drawble series on AO3 that collects them.

I don't make any promises for results or a timely delivery, but in the past I've usually managed to draw something for everyone who prompted me for these non-demanding, open drawble offers.

Drawble meme!! \o/

Maybe you can choose one of these words (or multiple) as a prompt:
- wish
- read
- work-in-progress
- recipe

(ha! I'm just thinking about visuals I need for icons)

Question...

[personal profile] goss 2017-01-04 03:44 pm (UTC)(link)
Hey, I'd love to post the drawing to my journal. Can I hotlink the image from your site or would you prefer I upload it myself?

I love it. A friend and I have a long-lived joke about sporks, and this is perfect. He'll love seeing it. (That's why sporks are in my interest list, honestly.)

Aw, I always love your drawbles!

How about Ratcreature as a Furling from SG-1? Possibly meeting Teal'c? Or anyone, really.

[personal profile] fignewton 2017-01-04 09:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Eeeeeee that is beyond adorable. :D :D :D And Teal'c's eyebrow! His (non)expression! Perfect.

Also, the little wave... :)

I'll hotlink it, if that's okay?
fignewton: (humor)

[personal profile] fignewton 2017-01-04 09:20 pm (UTC)(link)
I can't access Tumblr, I'm afraid, so I went ahead and hotlinked.

Let me know if it's a problem; I can always save it to my own DW and link from there.

And THANK YOU for putting a huge smile on my face! :) Here's the entry at my journal.

I think your drawbles are adorable and I would very much like one if you're still doing them.

OMG! Thank you so much! This is fantastic. Paris, and Pisa and Moscow! And you painted 1812 in all the pictures <3 <3 I love it beyond what ways can say.

Vielen Dank!

P.S. and now I'm nostalgic about Farscape. I might even go rewatch some of my favorite episodes.
