    In general, the expressions I draw come from inside my head! But the mental catalog of what expressions look like comes from a combination of watching human faces, studying how other people exaggerate them, and from that choosing how I'm going to portray them. But it's not so complicated when I'm drawing, a lot of it's a subconscious sort of thing. It's sort of like learning a language: you learn what the words mean and how to arrange them, but you also listen to other people speaking to teach you how to get your point across, you pick up slang here and there, and the more you do it, the more intuitive it becomes. Now that I think of it though, I ought to draw more real-life human faces, because they're really fun.

    Man, horror, surrealism and cute are like my triad of art favorites. I feel ya, though--once you've got one of them down, it can be hard to get a handle on the others. It's like any other art thing, though--just takes practice. Then it becomes less out of the box! I've also taken to just amassing a folder of horrors for inspiration. %D

    Awww, thanks Flesk!! Expressions are one of the most fun parts of drawing but sometimes super difficult to get them just right. So I'm glad you like mine!

    Thanks Acefox! I'm glad you like it! Mystery Kids is probably my favorite cross-over. I think the Marksmanship/Psi-Blast badge is the closest equivalent in OFFICIAL training, but I think I might be able to come up with something closer to a bow-and-arrow style! P:

    Aww, thanks man!! c: That's just about one of the nicest things I could hear! I forgot to mention in the last post--I'm still up for camper requests, if anyone's got an idea (and doesn't mind the potential wait.)

    Wiping the dust off of THIS thing, weh. Somehow the month of September completely ran away from me and, with a daze, I've arrived a month LATE with sketches. Tsk, tsk! Ah, well. This first one is for you, Kirby! Chloe does her best to give an astrology lesson and Bobby scrunches his little blue face up in attempts to understand. At least he's trying. He doesn't get all that science junk but he digs the constellation stories. Raz tries to brush off the whole "water phobia/gypsy curse thing" but, well. Kids are cruel. CASE IN POINT. Razputin, not only has EVERY KID AT CAMP thought of that trick, but Phoebe finally agreed to you helping her think of a new band name and you are being SERIOUSLY insensitive to her issues. AND THIS TIME, NOT CAMPERS! Agent Nein and Coach at some pre-Psychonauts point in their lives, Sasha on smoke break from his factory job and Morry, well. I've kicked around a headcanon that working at your terrifying father's stupid gross butcher shop WOULD give someone weird meat-filled dreams. Though there's really nothing to confirm or deny it, and it seems almost too miserable to be true. I'm pretty sure though that as soon as Sasha showed up on the scene to help out at camp, Morry took it as a very personal threat from higher-ups. THEY'RE TRYING TO REPLACE ME. WITH THIS TALL GUY. Cue an painfully firm handshake that extends for an awkward length of time. And, bonus: Raz and Dipper from Gravity Falls. I don't tend for cross-overs but, man. This one tickles me. They're discussing Gideon's weird psychic bolo-tie.

    Ah man, these costumes are super cute! Wren and Lili would make a GREAT dynamic duo.
  8. Oh, man, I hope we see these in the online shop soon. I'm so glad they're still making new Psychonauts merch. Aaaaaaa incredible, I want a little Raz to hang out on my desk while I work.

    Aww these two are super cute! <3 I love sweet father-daughter stuff too, sometimes especially if they're sorta evil. I really like how you handled Gray Mann's face especially, he looks just as wrinkly and conniving as he should be. And I like the addition of the bots in the background. I'm sure Olivia's gonna be a great little CEO/tyrant.

    I've been wanting to sketch some doodles of Whispering Rock kids doing normal camp things, like roasting marshmallows or swimming in the lake. I'm just posting because I've actually having trouble thinking up ideas! So if you guys have prompts or something you'd like to see, lemme know. c: I'll post sketches sometime next week after I've moved into my new house.

    Aww, thanks Flesk! c: You guys make me feel super flattered, I'm happy to keep posting. See, for me it was the opposite! I didn't have as much trouble tracking down a copy! Granted, it DID become more difficult to find one at a reasonable price, but on Amazon I found someone not only selling a good copy of the game itself, but they had the original box it came in as well as the soundtrack! It was a sweet deal. But getting the thing to run properly on Windows Vista turned into a headache for a while, haha. Lucky for me I had someone more tech-savvy on hand, got it running like new after only a couple hours of struggle. That launcher is definitely a must-have though, makes the whole thing so much smoother.

    Man, I feel ya. :c I missed that era too and it can feel like a real bummer sometimes. But it made finally knuckling down and getting a copy of Grim Fandango all the more exciting! I'd wanted it for years. I don't know what the whole situation would be with a Mac though, because it has to run in Windows 95/98 compatibility. I haven't heard of a port either, but MAYBE somebody's figured something out. I got all my info from grimfandango.net. Good luck!! Sure man! That sounds super fun! Just PM me if you wanna set something up or if you need my Skype or anything! I'm gonna be moving this weekend so that'll be busy but after that I should be good any time!

    I saw! Thanks so much, man!! Grim Fandango is SO good. There were a number of copies being sold on Amazon when I went looking for it--the real difficulty is getting it to run on a modern PC. I had to have a friend help me out, though I'm sure lots of people on here or on the Grim Fandango fansite would be able to offer a hand if you have trouble. It's worth it, imo. The writing is fantastic.

    Here's some other stuff that's floating around tumblr somewhere or another. This time it's Grim Fandango, which is ANOTHER one of those all-time-favorites that has Tim's name attached to it.
