Does anyone else make the same facial expressions as your character when you're drawing?

Like if I'm drawing somebody sad, my brows will furrow heavily, or if the person is happy, my cheeks scrunch up. Seriously I'm going to get terrible wrinkles sobbb. It also makes my face ache terribly after a while! But I don't know how to stop..it just happens so unconsciously.


Speaking of CONCIOUSNESS....I was finally able to watch Inception, AND..............


:icondurrhurrplz:

:icondurrhurrplz::icondurrhurrplz::icondurrhurrplz:

I feel like it has taken over my life.

Thus, for ALA, I will be releasing....Inception phone charms! It's ok if no one buys them, I wanted to make them anyhow :XD: Oh Eames darling, you and your paisley♥ Your mind is absolutely brilliant~


....Except for when it comes to spelling and math. :iconsmugarthurplz:


Sorry for the lack of art lately! I'm working on my nordic secret santa present, but at my slow pace of 1 panel a day, things are not looking good :icondizzyplz:

Ahh...happens to me all the time. I always feel kinda weird and try to put on a straight face,but after a few seconds,I'm back with the expression I'm drawing on my face.
And I haven't watched Inception...perhaps I'll get around to doing that.

And here I thought I was the only one 8D
(there is a reason why I don't like drawing in public. That and it gets on my nerves people staring at stuff I'm doing over my shoulder <o>)

And damnnnn. Need to watch Inception. So many movies to catch up with now.

Random question: have you got back to LJ or something? I kinda haven't been there for ages, but thought about going back to updating once in a while etc

omg, you haven't watched Inception yet!?? Ahhh blasphemy! You must get to it right away! I have the DVD, and it was the first non-animation movie I ever bought in my life x'DD

Besides the whole storyline being unique and amazing and whatnot, the reason I'm still so obsessed is because the fandom is just amazing.. The movie barely gives characterization and no history at all (except for maybe Cobb) and usually that's BAD, except it just blossomed instead and allowed for so much creativity. It's like a team effort, after half a year, everyone has worked together to build this persona of what they think Eames and Arthur and everybody else act and think, and it's just wonderful. ♥ (Yeah, I got into Arthur&Eames after reading a comment saying 'God, will you guys stop pairing them together!?' and that got me curious, so I researched it, and fell terribly in love LOL)

I am sort of back in LJ (never left)! I only use it mainly to lurk though. When I do post art, I usually post directly to the comm and not to my journal.. ._.;

I havennn't! Shame on me ;A: oh I wanna get the dvd too :~ I'll try to watch it soon!

And Inception Fandom! Now that you mention it, it's something that really got my interest lately 8D So many gorgeous fanart floating around deviantart, I was curious as to why it had so much fandom potential, haha~ can't wait to find out!

Getting into a pairing after that comment XD jdslkfjsdl not judging, this page is actually what got me into comics and Young Avengers: [link] 8D CANON PAIRING~ life, complete joy etc (and that's my current unhealthy obsession OTL)

Oh I see you're still posting at kagami222@lj :'D that's good! I haven't used mine not even for lurking.. about to change that, I guess (well I did use it lately to lurk around some YA comms :B fandoms always bring us back, it seems)

askjlfja;klfsa Sorry for not replying sooner! This week has been utter hell for me ;3;

Has there really been that much fanart? I know there's ~Paperflower86 who constantly draws hilarious things, and ~MARiKaArt who made me fall so hard in love with the recent polaroid pic. My favorite fanart still goes to this one from LJ *starry eyes forever*

Ooooooh~ I don't know what Young Avengers, but I'm looking it up right now. A lot people are getting into Superhero stuff lately (DCU especially), makes me feel a little left out. :XD: I have to admit though, that is pretty BLATANTLY CANON lol. Especially how the twin beds suddenly morphed into a king-sized one? omg. So. Tell me more about them (especially the backstory behind that scene)! Superhero friends tells me it's Wiccan and Hulkling, but that's the limit of my knowledge.

Sadly that's very true. Seems like the best community stuff happens on LJ, so it's inevitable we have to return. =3= I did post a fanart process a couple days ago that won't be appearing on dA.

I've seen other fanarts, but I've watched so many galleries lately I'll have to look it up later :īD it was a beautiful one~ I'll try to watch the movie soon, let you know when I do it ^^

I always wanted to get into superhero comics but the amount of comics and sagas and arcs and whatnot always scared the hell out of me ): not knowing where to start reading etc. But Young Avengers has few comics published so far, so you can catch up easily (I can upload what I have if you want to give it a shot ^^). And damn yeah, blatantly canon for sure. (and they are so lovely ;A; [link]). Well the backstory for that first one I sent you... Wiccan/Billy is sort of a kick ass sorcerer not yet fully in control of his powers and kind of rendered a whole group of terrorists comatose D: so the Avengers held him to have his powers evaluated or something, and Hulkling/Teddy refused to let him alone :3 oh the morphing beds 8D that's part of Wiccan's sorcery skills~ (side note, awesome artwork [link])

And yeah, livejournal... I see you've been posting! <3 new layout too, niceee :3 I'll try to do something about mine too. Wanted to clean up all those communities, get a new layout etc..but I still have to set up my website and work on my portfolio for a while (and start sending resumees *sobs* ): currently terrified of not making into anything, sighs).

That's like with me and Sherlock Holmes or Doctor Who..
Wow, I didn't expect them to spell it out like that. Can't remember anything like this happening anywhere else before O: Uuuuu, I'll take a look at a comic, but I don't know if I can afford to get into another fandom T__T

Oh gosh, I need to work on my website too.. I started a little during the winter, but I put it off once I hit a snag and now it's just sitting there :( Don't speak to me of resumeeeeees-

Ahh I thought I was the only one :'D I do the same and can't help doing it... I do wonder though, what expression I make when drawing H stuff <_< I've never stopped to analize my facial expression.. I bet it's a scary one... xDDD But really, sometimes it embarrases me.. I probably look pretty stupid when drawing something happy D:

This definitely must have some long-term consequences.. You would think that if so many artists suffer from this, there would be a solution already lolsob

lol. I'm pretty sure every other artist out there does that.
I know I do, it gets embarrassing for me when I draw in public x"D

or my friends get worried when I make an upset or sad face for a long time as I draw~

But it's nice to know I'm not the only one T_T

HAHA~
Same thing happened to me xD
I started doing some sort of manic giggling at a coffee shop for the sake of my character and people just stared "orz
and another time I started to tear up because I was drawing a character crying.

I think I show more emotion while drawing than when actually talking to people @ u @"
