My art life lately has been a never ending and ever-growing list of @twitch emote commissions. It's pretty much *all* I do anymore. How else can I pay the bills, right?! I'm grateful people love my work so much, but I'm also VERY MUCH looking forward to finally getting some personal work done! ESPECIALLY traditional work. Tomorrow, I start streaming for charity raising money for #CreateForKids. We've already raised $385 USD for @savethechildren, and the campaign hasn't even officially started yet! So insane, and so amazing. I can't wait to see how we do once I'm actually streaming for the campaign!! Be sure to join me at 2pm PST to see me create an entire coloring book on @twitch for charity!! ๐Ÿ’• @twitchcreative #twitchcreative #twitchemoteartist #twitchemotes #twitchemote

I am so, so, so freaking excited to announce the opening of my new merchandise store! It launched just yesterday, and my products are already flying off the shelves. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’• I can't freaking believe people like my art and that they're actually supporting me. My heart is seriously swelling with happiness. I never in my life thought I'd actually be able to make it one day as an artist, but it's happening. It's freaking happening! I took a risk and my wishes are coming true. I love you all so much! The first products released in my store are these Sailor Moon Senshi Squad hoodies, tees, mugs, tanks, stickers, and phone cases!! Thank you so much to everyone who has already bought something. Your support means the world. Seriously! Thank you! For those of you interested in purchasing, head here and check out all the different products! https://www.designbyhumans.com/shop/t-shirt/men/senshi-squad/714184/

Phew! I have been seriously swamped with commissions over the past few days, and I'm exhausted! I'm freaking out, TBH, because I might actually be able to pay my rent and bills for July 2017 with commissions alone. That's a BIG DEAL. It means that at least for the month of July, I'll have achieved my goal of being a full time artist. I'm so freaking happy and excited by this!! ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’• To celebrate all of the digital art commissions rolling in (like the one above), I've added a new reward to my $10 student tier on Patreon -- PSD files of all of my work!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’• This will help you better understand my process and how I think when I piece together the puzzles of my art. Thank you so, so much for supporting me! July 2017 is going to be so amazing!!

Yesterday, @twitch raided my stream with over 23,000 viewers, and featured me in the Twitch Weekly creative spotlight. Wow. Just wow. Words can't express how grateful I am for the support and belief in my ability. Thank you so much!! Next up... I'm being featured on the front page for 2 hours rocking one of my makeup tutorials!! More details soon. Until then, please enjoy this Twitch emote commission I finished of D.va from #overwatch!! ๐Ÿ’•

Sneak peek at the concept sketch for my next painting. ๐Ÿ˜ You can see the final undersketch on my Patreon and WIPs of my piece! ๐Ÿ˜ฑโœจ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’‹

Guess who just got a shiny new SUBSCRIBE button on Twitch?! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’• MeeEeeEeeEee!! That means: super cute rainbow emotes are coming to my stream! For my first emote, I designed this cute AF drooling #SailorMoon. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒ™ She's just so me! Vibrant and colorful and cute. ๐Ÿ˜Š Thank you all so much for tuning in, and thank you everyone for the subscriptions yesterday, the pledges on Patreon, and the subs on Gamewisp! You guys are the fkng BEST!! ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’• I love you! PS. Emote commissions are open for a limited time at a very reasonable introductory price! Please DM me with inquiries. โ˜บ๏ธ

No seriously. I shouldn't be drawing in the dark. ๐Ÿ˜… Stayed up doing a few figure studies late last night, and ended with this portrait. It's crazy how easy it is to draw from life after 20 minutes of warming up. I shocked myself! Seriously, being good at anything is all in practice. I've been an artist my entire life, but spending the last two months really grinding at it has improved my work tremendously. ๐Ÿ’• There's hope for everyone. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm so excited to show you all my next painting! But until then, have some sketches. ๐Ÿ’• If you'd like to see my work in progress on the various paintings I'm working on, please head to my Patreon. โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’• Theres a ton of goodies on there you don't want to miss out on. And don't forget to enter my giveaway on Instagram! ๐Ÿ’‹

Things I should stop doing: drawing in dim lighting. ๐Ÿ˜ณ Srsly. Did you know I could actually go blind by doing that? Yeah. Wouldn't want that. ๐Ÿ˜‘ PS. Don't forget to enter my ๐ŸŒ™giveaway๐ŸŒ™! Check back two posts.

Studying. โœจ

The giveaway is open worldwide! ๐ŸŒŽโ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’• This giveaway is my way of saying thank you for 1,000 followers (kind of late, I know). It happened so fast! We're creeping up on 2,000 followers very quickly, and I'd like to host another giveaway when that happens. So thank you!!! I appreciate you all so much. ๐Ÿ’• Good luck!

Guess who finally picked up acrylic paint and decided to learn how the hell to use it? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’• This quick painting started as a determined experiment. I had zero idea what I was doing. All I knew was that I wanted to better understand acrylic paint and how to blend it, mix it, and layer it. It performs so different than water! But I'm happy with the way my experiment turned out, and I feel 10x more confident with acrylic now that I've really poured some time and effort into it! Prints will be available soon in my store, and more behind the scenes work on this piece (tools used, high res scan, etc) will be available tomorrow on my Patreon! I'll also be uploading a speed-paint video of this to YouTube. โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’• This is the Dark Lady from #SailorMoon!

Currently working on my next Sailor Moon piece. ๐Ÿ˜โœจ๐Ÿ’• This is the under-sketch for my painting. A full video will be up on YouTube within the week. Find me at YouTube.com/heycheri !! โœจโœจโœจ It's Sailor Mercury/Ami (my favorite senshi besides Usagi!) in my own drawing style (because her hair in the anime is so ugly lol) on a picnic!! She's playing with a Nintendo 3DS that totally looks like her actual mini computer BTW while referencing a video game guide on her iPhone because duh, she's a perfectionist. I've included a lot of other cute things in this image that only Sailor Moon fans would truly appreciate. I can't wait to finish thisssss!! I'll be visiting my family this weekend, so I'm not sure if I'll have time to paint it. ๐Ÿ˜ญ But I'll definitely be sketching and concepting! โ˜บ๏ธ Maybe I'll bring a pocket watercolor set with me and knock out some mini paintings?! ๐Ÿ˜ I don't know. I'm just so excited to be drawing and painting again. I don't care if I'm poor!! I'm happy. ๐Ÿ’• ... But if you don't want me to be poor, feel free to support me on Patreon. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Patreon.com/heycheri -- You'll be able to see more WIP photos, get high res scans of all my paintings and sketches, discounts on prints, limited edition illustrations, and more!! โœจ
