Splatoon – Now Or Never | Animal Crossing-Style Remix

Splatoon – Now Or Never | Animal Crossing-Style Remix

Who says an art blog can’t have music!? Oh, nobody said that? Okay. Good. Because they would be WRONG! 😉

All jokes aside, my followers may be aware that I occasionally make music in addition to art. A while ago, I had a song called Now or Never from Splatoon stuck in my head. I was also playing a lot of Animal Crossing: New Leaf at the time, and I found its soundtrack so peaceful and charming. Then I thought, why not combine the two? I worked on and off for a couple of months to create this remix using Noteflight so I could put it on YouTube for others to enjoy. I also drew a cute picture of Cece and Viché (cosplayers of Callie and Marie from Splatoon that appear as unlockable characters in Animal Crossing: New Leaf) to go along with my new song.

Without further ado, here is the link to my Animal Crossing-style remix of Now or Never on YouTube! https://youtu.be/Gh5t0ACQHBg

And here is the cute drawing of Cece and Viché that goes with the video.

Squirrel Sisters
In Splatoon, Callie and Marie are called the Squid Sisters. Do you think that in the world of Animal Crossing, Cece and Viché are called the Squirrel Sisters?

Both the drawing and the remix took me a long time, but I’m happy with the result. What do you think? Let me know in the comments if you like, and have a safe Black Friday. Stay fresh!

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.



I drew a picture for my mom’s blog! She colored it in digitally. Looks great, Crafty B! Thanks for the prompt! 😀

My daughter, Pencil Princess, is so funny. The other night, she asked for a Pop Tart in the morning for breakfast. I asked her if it was okay untoasted. She said, “Sure, I don’t mind Raw-p Tarts!”

I. Died!

So I asked her to draw me a Pop Tart for my blog. Isn’t it cute?  Good job, Lilli. Wish I could draw like you do. You have a natural talent for it. Your illustrations are so simple and adorable. Love your style. And wit. 🙂 ❤ You’re my best galfriend.

Cute Cartoon Skull & Crossbones Design

Cute Cartoon Skull & Crossbones Design

My last few posts haven’t been about traditional drawings because I haven’t been drawing a lot lately. Instead, I’ve been shifting my focus a little more towards digital design! That’s not to say I’ve given up on drawing, but I’ve really started to enjoy doing art on the computer in addition to drawing on paper.

More specifically, I’ve been creating a lot of art for my RedBubble store! I haven’t actually made any sales yet, but I just get excited seeing previews of my designs on over 50 different products. I was thinking of new designs I could do, and decided that a cartoon skull and crossbones would be cute! Here is the link to the design on RedBubble.

The description for this piece says, “This design will make you look cool and tough! …Well, almost. The cute and cartoony style clashes with the traditionally ominous symbol of the skull and crossbones.” I’ve said before that I like things that mix creepy and adorable together, and to me, this picture does exactly that.

When you first click on the design on my profile or my portfolio, you’ll see an example of what it looks like on a sticker. This is because I think it looks really cool on a sticker, but if you click on “available products” you can see it on 51 other unique items! I would get it on a journal because then it’s like a warning against people who might look through your private drawings! Keep out!!! LOL

I really enjoy making these digital designs, but I’d also like to get back to drawing. Any suggestions? Please let me know in the comments, I love to hear them! I sincerely thank my Citizens for their viewing of this artwork, and wish them a wonderful day. 😉
