Day 67
I have a bunch of big felines in my story (thanks to the obsession I had with cats when I was a kid lmao) so I’m trying to at least make them look as physically different as I can I guess. First one is inspired by a smilodon, second has some venomous snake in it and the last one is more of a lynx.

Business cards with MOO.com!

clefdesoll:

Hello friends! I recently ordered business cards and just got them today and I thought I’d do a review :y If you’re interested I have a promo code so you can get a 10% off your first purchase, so skip to the bottom to see it!

first of all this is the box it says yay! it’s happy it made me feel stupidly happy because I’m a loser. Also their whole website is just adorable???? right down to their emails like wow cute

image

when I got it my box had shifted and it was a sad sight but I fixed it and I just love the packaging I had a design nerd moment

image

it comes with a box to carry your business card and even has little tabs so you collect other people’s cards this is freaking brilliant I love

image

My ipod doesn’t do them justice they aren’t that dull in colour; but they are significantly duller than my illustration. But that’s probably because I had my settings on RGB and it should have been CMYK so don’t follow my example. But real talk I like the result better than my illustration anyway so whatever uvu

image

AND IT COMES WITH MOTIVATIONAL CARDS AND SAYS “PASS ME ON” AND THAT’S THE BEST MARKETING THING I’VE EVER SEEN???

Anyway!! They’re a little pricey (especially if you live in Canada like me) and I had to pay priority shipping to make sure I had them in time for the con so predict at least a month for it. Though they came in a whooping 9 days earlier than their prediction- but I have a habit of getting things fast here, I think it’s because I live in Montreal which is a big city.

Also I just went to dig on their website for my promo code and if you sign up for their newsletter you can get a one-time code for free shipping. They give you the code right away, so I’m pretty sure you can unsubscribe whenever.

And here’s my referral code! Apparently it gives me credit for a next order but I don’t really care about that, I’m mostly sharing because you can save 10% and I know I for one would have liked the discount when I registered!

And that’s it uvu! I defs recommend it if you want cute high quality business cards!! They’re really lovely, I’m digging the round corners option and will probably deal with them again in the future. They also have stickers and a bunch of things they’re cool and cute and I like them.

This is for the people I recommended MOO to at Otakuthon or who liked my business card!

Can we skip the next 24 hours or so, so I can be reunited with my woman already?

Day 65
I was really unsatisfied with my last redesign for this character, so I’ve been meaning to work on it some more. I like the direction I’m going towards better with this, but I’m too tired to keep going. I’ll work on her some more later, possibly change her name entirely too.

Day 63

I might touch up the last one tomorrow because I’ll admit I’m way too exhausted to give it proper attention hahaa;;; I need sleep bUT ANYWAY!!!! Finally done with those! Volcano button set for the fire element.

You know it’s interesting because I used to be completely terrified of volcanoes. Like keep me up at night in fear my home would turn into Pompeii #2 despite how there are no volcanoes at all where I live.

Day 62
I’m ridiculously exhausted so I figured I’d draw something that didn’t require too much effort but that I still needed nonetheless. So there we go! If you’re sharp you might have noticed Yokoka wearing a teal ribbon to her left wrist once in a while, well now you know what it is! I tried to give it some meaning, I hope it doesn’t sound “my 12 years old self had weird ideas” too much haha….;;;;;;
