long story short: I had a nightmare about the eight angel from the book of revelations coming to earth to throw down the censer to kickstart that whole apocalypse thing before getting interrupted by being shot in the face by modern-day people from the US. I have weird dreams.
[[MORE]]
That said, I thought it’d make a cool story, because a lot of the stuff in the book of Revelations is horrifying and monstrous (and therefore up my alley). So I played with an idea of a college-aged girl accidentally assisting the apocalypse by helping the eighth angel and getting involved in angelic politics, all while dealing with hail of fire and blood and seven-headed beasts with ten horns and locusts. 
I tried to look up more biblical descriptions of regular angels (not seraphim, archangels, or thrones) and actually got this, from Daniel 10: 5-6:
And I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold, there was a man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz. 
His body also was like the Chrysolite, and his face (to look upon) like the lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet were like in color to polished brass, and the voice of his words was like the voice of a multitude. 
weirdly enough there’s no description of them having wings, so I left them off… then realized modern pop culture basically says angels = wings, so I gave him lightning ones.
it’d be a neat story but likely one i wouldn’t get to fully flesh out until the way future.
yep.

6sketches, artists on tumblr, long post,

I got tagged by melonberri to post my desktop, so I figured why not!

my desktop is a mess basically everything I use is at the bottom bar — chrome, steam, photoshop, illustrator, skyrim (and mod stuff), oblivion (and mod stuff), trillian, the sims 3, minecraft, dwarf fortress, and spotify.

though i also have this picture taken from an article about my dad where every mention of ‘cloud’ is replaced with ‘butt’

hehhehhehhhhehhhh

6palidoozy rambles, delete later, i'm an adult,

This was originally going to just be a quick sketch to get a concept out but then i painted it because I don’t know.

green obsidian is really pretty btw.

6artists on tumblr,

Hello! I have a few questions about comic-making and your personal process of it? Like, when in your story production did you decide to make it a comic? Did you script it or do you just come up with dialogue on the spot? Sorry, I'm considering doing a webcomic myself, but I want to get someone's opinion who's been doing this for a while. :P Thank you for your time! Blessings~

x_x aaa I’m not sure if I’ve been doing this for a while (I think CAR started… somewhere end of summer?? last year??), but I’m honored you’d ask me!

I decided I was going to make it a comic from the start. I’ve always loved comics as a medium, and comics have been the best way I’ve found to get my stories out the closest way they’re represented in my head.

I script most of it, though depending on how the page comes out I may alter dialogue. Or if I make any last-minute changes, I may throw out the script and do it free-hand (example: Chapter 02 had an entire character written out, last-minute, page before he showed up). The entire generalized story is plotted out, and I know what kind of story I want to tell and what ‘messages’ or whatever I want to have in it. But I couldn’t tell you any specifics like ‘Chapel fights the swedish mafia lead by a man named Paul Genericson in chapter 32.’

If you’re looking for some more tutorials I’ve done I actually wrote up several on how I write, draw, and publish my webcomic! If you have any other questions on webcomic stuff feel free to ask, I’ll try to get back to you (I’ll get back faster if I don’t have to draw examples for it). It’s also important to keep in mind this is just how I operate, so it’s still always better to get a second opinion!

Also kind of related — Cracked wrote an amazing article on general writing advice. In particular #3 is one I relate to a lot. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the follow-back! I love your work, it all has so much character and movement—it's something I'm struggling with. Any tips on what to study to get better?

Sorry for the late response! Haha I was going to write up a big tutorial, but it’d be more simple if I just USED MY WORDS.

I’d actually recommend to any artist interested in capturing motion to look at animation. Even try some animation yourself. Animation is literally capturing movement in a series of still pictures, and even though they have thousands and thousands of pictures to do this with, a single frame can still appear very fluid, and with a lot of movement!

When I was in college, one of the things we covered was the 12 basic principals of animation. Even though some of them apply directly to animation (unless you’re doing a comic, it’s hard to do overlapping action or secondary action in a single frame) a lot of them still carry over to good fluid drawing. Arcs, for instance! A lot of my skeletons start off as noodly-arm arcs.

IN ANY CASE I could go into how to apply animation to still pictures another day, but I didn’t wanna leave this one hanging for too long. D: Also there are people who tell it better than I. Here’s some books and references on animation, and stuff I use.

BOOKS

The Animator’s Survival Kit - Drawn To Life - The Illusion of Life - Action Anatomy - Timing for Animation

TUTORIALS

An article on acting in animation - An entire article (with more words!!) going into some of the principals 

(I can’t find much in the way of good online tutorials of animation so uh here’s a guy who’s freaking awesome at animation for reference).

Anyway sorry this one’s sloppier than some of my other tutorials! D: I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t leaving you hanging. Does this make sense?

EDIT - also becuz I realized it was part of the ask and I forgot to mention it—ur art is really good <3 Keep it up!

6reblog, for the morning folks!, chapel also ran, webcomics on tumblr, comics on tumblr, artists on tumblr,

Gosh, I love Chapel's character design. I found you through a character design post, and I'm curious if you have a tale about how you went through the process of designing the dumb nerd?

o no i can talk for hours about character design. i’m so sorry.

I briefly went over the design process on page 3 of this character post thing, but for a more in-depth talk… STRAP IN FOLKS IT’S GONNA BE A (long) RIDE. i’m so so sorry. i promise there will be pictures.

EDIT: OH GOD THIS POST ON MOBILE IS LITERALLY THE WORST IF YOU GUYS WANT I CAN BREAK IT IN TWO.

So I had the awesome Talenthiel ask for a $10 sketch commission a while back. I like blood elves (and their smug elfy faces) so I said yes! It’s a lot of fun to draw other people’s dudes.

I don’t usually watermark sketches, but since it’s a commission I did. With butts.

6lots of butts, sketch commission, talenthiel, blood elf, I STILL OWE PEOPLE STUFF HNNN,

I have a quick question, How does one pronounce Chapel's name? Is it said like the church chapel, or something else?
Anonymous

Exactly like the church chapel. Which probably means in other languages it’d be… whatever word for chapel they have.

The name on chapter 02, page 04 is pronounced ‘ke-shEEn’

so seeing all those emofuri or whatever stuff actually made me really itching to actually do some traditional animation. or at least attempt. So I taught myself how to animate in photoshop and did an animation exercise with a character turning their head.

i haven’t done 2D character animation like this in about 7 years (despite having a degree in animation lololol). somehow this turned out WAAAAAY better than anything i did in college. not sure how that works but ok sure i’ll take it.

6this doesn't mean this is actually good, it means i was REALLY TERRIBLE IN COLLEGE, 2d animation, gif, animation, my college years were full of misery and embarassment,

cruxia:

I know I said I’d draw Saulia but..Chapel is also good right?! palidoozy-art consistently wrecks my doki doki with her delicious fantasy comic and characters ;-; 

WHY DO I ALWAYS MISS THIS STUFF ;____; omg thank youuuu
