first i wanna say that i LOVE your art, its awesome & i hope you make a living off it. & i wanted to ask 4 some art advice, i am drawing 4 over a year & I'm getting MUCH better at it. but the thing is that i can't draw without reference, if i have some i can draw fine, with ought it my drawing falls apart. how do you do it?

It’s okay to copy! If you’re going to publish it on the internet then you should ask the artist for permision and give credit. If you’re not publishing, then you can and you should copy everything! Because for me there’s no other way to come up with things from your head when you’re just starting, you need to study. It’s absolutely normal because it’s the practice what makes you incorporate all the elements to the point you don’t need references -most of the time- 

So don’t be sad if you need to copy/ use references when you draw, just try to don’t get used to them too much, remember that they should be temporary if you’re planning to create your own stuff!

Your art inspired me to continue drawing last year when I felt really down about my art and this year I've become more confident because of you, so thanks!~

I swear these messages do things to my heart 

Dude. I just gotta say.... I love all of your artwork. Not just the teen titans stuff, but every piece you art. I can tell you put your heart and soul into everyone of them and it's just fantastic. The characters are so realistic yet still drawn which gives it an intriguing appeal to it. Still jealous of your skills, but you truely are an inspiration! ^__^ keep it up (and some BbRae wouldn't hurt anyone :P )

Omgg, thank you soo much, I appreciate it a lot!

Are you sure some BBRae wouldn’t hurt anyone?

I can be really cruel

For all you tattoo bashers out there.

Tattoos don’t make the character. Learn people. Learn.

This.

The previous generations really did a number on us when it comes to tattoos. They made us believe that tattoos are unprofessional and unsightly, when, really, tattoos and body art have existed through pretty much the entirety of human history. Tattoos, unless they are of an offensive nature, are not any more unprofessional than make-up, or jewelry, etc.I remember one time I was asked by a friend who is a manager if she should hire a guy with tattoos. My first question to her was about how qualified the guy was for the position, and she explained he was very qualified. Her: “If you went to a store to buy something, would it bother you if the person helping you had tattoos?”Me: “As long as he does his job properly and helps me when I need it, he could be wearing a Halloween costume for all I care.” 

bless this post.

not to mention, tattoos and piercings, when done professionally, cost a LOT of money and the wearer has to perform upkeep on them (cleaning piercings, keeping tattoos clean and protected from sunlight, etc)
we conceive of people with body mods as dirty, unemployable, counter-culture, etc, when people with body mods are extremely hygienic and have plenty of disposable income. considering how expensive some tattoos can be, we could actually consider tattoos and piercings a sign of wealth.
