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.
Now, I’m not being paid to say this, but Drawception is super fun! It’s a combination of the games Telephone and Pictionary in which someone creates a game by submitting a prompt, someone else draws a picture based on that prompt within ten minutes, and the next person has to caption that picture within ten minutes. The cycle goes on for a while until a game is finished and everyone gets to see how it started and where it went. Hilarity ensues!
I played Drawception for a long time as user April Rayne. I had my ups and downs as an artist, but there were some very silly drawings that came from my time as a… Drawceptionist? Drawceptioner? Whatever. I’ve decided to share a few highlights with my dear Citizens!
Prompt: “Ghost wins first”
Prompt: “Mario Scaring a ghost”
Prompt: “Inverted butterfly”
Prompt: “Proton attacks star with knife”
Prompt: “Banana picking on a pineapple.”
Prompt: “I wish i was were star”
Prompt: “does a knight’s armour matter?”
Prompt: “rainbow egg is dancing”
Prompt: “Pessimistic pineapple”
Prompt: “Handsome Squidward with bishie sparkles”
For the record, here’s the original “handsome Squidward.”
You can expect some more artwork tomorrow… once we get our scanner working again… until then, have a great day! And, if you’re a knight, remember that armor (armour?) does matter.
