Hello there! Sal here, blogging about my life, art, and friends!

Yesterday my dad took me to the auto show in Sacramento! We’re the only two in the family that really love cars, so we had a lot of fun. :3

Every week I make art charts and examples to help my students, so I’m going to be posting those here too. Last class was all about words in comics and how to do them!

In Chapter 4 of Hotarugari, Hotaru has to hide his foxy ears from others so it won’t be discovered that he’s not exactly human, so these are some rough concepts for what he’ll look like. When entering the spirit realm in Chapter 5, however, he’ll be swapping it out for a mask.

What happened to Hotarugari?

Hotarugari is still ongoing and seeing progress! Just the short break I meant to take became several months long due to work, life, and other troubles. But the adventure will continue in December, for sure, if not sooner, and until then, I’ll share some of the work I’ve been making for Hotarugari here on Tumblr.

Everybody is inking things for Inktober, and it makes me really want to ink things too, even though I don’t have a clue about inking things. (●´ω`●)ゞ

In memory of my aunt—she loved Donald Duck, especially when he was smiling! Thank you for taking me to Disneyland for years and always trying to bring people happiness.

Baymax and a hairy baby. My heart is already breaking for these characters, I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited for a movie ever. And I’m just praying that it’s awesome, like, “Please, please, please, I want to cry HAPPY tears over these cuties, just, pleeeeeaaaassssse.”

What’s Up Wednesdays

Sorry for the lack of activity lately. >__<; Keep getting these annoying headaches from being on the computer too much, so I’ve been laying off the electronics for a while. Because of that, not a lot of progress this week, but thanks for sticking with me anyway!

Design concept for Grace, one of my four Team Rocket characters in Last Call! Each one represents a desire that corrupts, and a lot of your characters will be facing off with them during the story. Yippee! :3
[[MORE]]
As for Grace, she&#8217;s a clumsy, tall and selfish Team Rocket Elite Officer who often struggles to get others to obey and respect her. She can’t solve even the simplest of equations, forgets her own words, and is constantly dropping things. Her subordinates question her superiority, but because of her level in both rank and pokemon, they all still fear her, and get out of her way in her pursuit for power. Grace wants power more than anything, and plans to become the boss of Team Rocket, no matter what it takes!
