Stuff from RedBubble!

Salut, mon citoyens! (That’s “Hello, my citizens!” in French.) This year, I have the privilege of taking French 2 at my school! But that’s a little off-topic. I recently ordered two items from my RedBubble store for back-to-school, and today, my second item was delivered! It’s really exciting to have my artwork on actual, useful objects. It makes me feel a little proud of myself, if that makes any sense!

Anyway, my first item was this studio pouch with my “How to Recognize an Art Student” illustration on both sides. It looks great!!

The design came out perfectly! This large studio pouch fits all my pencils, erasers, markers, etc.

The second one – the one that was just delivered today – has my “Rainbow “3D” Zigzag Stripes” on a contrast tank.

I’m very excited to wear it to school, especially because it’s so hot outside in the summer!

Wait… does this count as my face-reveal post?? Not really, because my mom’s blog has pictures of me that show my face… Either way, here’s what I look like.

My RedBubble store has a lot of my artwork on it, and I would love to take suggestions in the comments if you would like to see me create a certain design or drawing! (I really like The Matrix. Ask me to draw something from The Matrix. LOL JK) I’m really happy with the way these designs turned out, and I hope to order more from RedBubble soon. Until my next post… au revoir, mon citoyens! (“Goodbye, my citizens!”)

How to Recognize an Art Student

How to Recognize an Art Student

I’m absolutely ecstatic to present to my citizens this finished, colored piece done in watercolor pencils! Other than my Pencil Princess profile picture, I haven’t ever finished coloring a drawing with watercolor pencils, so I’m very happy with how this one turned out.

Ever wondered how to tell art students apart from “ordinary” people? Now you can with this easy trick: is their non-dominant arm weak and noodley while their dominant arm is super buff and muscular from hours of drawing? If the answer is yes, then you have found yourself an art student.

The reason for this strange phenomenon observed in “art kids” is due to the fact that the non-dominant arm’s only primary function is delivering caffeinated beverages to the mouth if the other arm is busy, while the dominant arm is responsible for many activities (including drawing, painting, browsing memes, etc.)

Below is a depiction of a common art student, wearing a shirt that reads “ANIMU KWEEN” (translation: anime queen). Observe the difference between the non-dominant and dominant arms:

To make others aware of this easy trick (or simply to remind yourself), you can purchase this diagram on a variety of products via Pencil-Princess on RedBubble. The default product is a sticker, but it is also available on products such as hardcover journals and studio pouches.

In other news, the “ANIMU KWEEN” design on the shirt of this art student is available if you, too, want to be the anime queen. If more information is recorded on this strange art student phenomenon, rest assured that you will be informed immediately! PenPrin out.

Line Art: Owl Girl

Line Art: Owl Girl

Eeeeeeeeee! Sorry, I’m just so excited to be drawing these fun animal girls again. This adorable owl girl is another one in my series of animal-themed coloring pages! Someday, I hope to have enough to fill a coloring book. This one was a request from a Facebook friend of mine who asked, “Can you do an owl girl?” Well, I can and I did! (Even though it took me a long time.)

Owl Girl.JPG
OMG. She looks like she wants to give you a hug! Don’t leave her hanging!!!

Starting from the top, her hair poof is  in the shape of a feather! In addition, her pigtails represent the ear fluff of an actual owl. I wanted to give her cute cartoon eyebrows like I usually give my characters, but still convey the intense-looking eyebrows that owls have. I did my best to combine the two! Does it work? Let me know what you think!

The pointy nose I drew on her face is somewhat beak-like, I think. Her glasses are supposed to look like cute, tiny wings. Since owls are often portrayed as wise, I immediately thought of this girl being a student! Thus, I drew her in a private school outfit which I think turned out great. Her fluffy jacket is intended to be like an owl’s feathery wings! Last but not least, her socks have the same “v”-like feathery pattern that I often see on cartoon owls. Adorable!!

She’s also meant to look a little bit younger than my other animal girls. If I were to rank them from youngest to oldest, I would say that this owl girl is first, then the kitty girl, the bat girl, the polar bear girl, the ladybug girl, and finally the fox girl. Even if they’re not all the same age, I could totally see the five of them hanging out together.

Please give suggestions as to what kind of animal character you’d like me to draw next! Even if it takes me a while, I’ll do my best to acquiesce to your request. 😉 Or, if you want something more specific, you can always commission me to draw an existing character or one of your own. My prices are really cheap, if I do say so myself! And I do say so. So there. LOL As always, thanks to my lovely Citizens!
