About Tea

I am a fairly normal deviant, not really much to say there. I enjoy long walks on the beach, drinking tea while watching the sunset. Oh and bald green aliens whom run around space. You know all the normal stuff.

I am truly passionate about my art, and improving an opportunity I can get. I love trying out new things and expanding my artistic abilities whether it be traditional or Digital. I am not the fastest, or most productive artist out there. You have been warned!
However, I am always open to making new friends so don't ever hesitate if you wanna chat to give me a good ol' tap on the shoulder! I don't always reply fast but I'll be sure to get to ya as soon as I can!

:tea: = :heart:

I am a proud student at Savannah College of Art and Design, and am fighting for my dreams. I have always wanted to be an artist, ever since I was young; however over used the phrase is it applies here. YOLO I want to chase my dreams rather then live with the regret of never trying. On my deviantart page I will be posting my art as I progress as an young illustrator/sequential artist, and hopefully someday make a living do so.

RA of Mythical Creatives by Octeapi
RA of Mythical Creatives
To those of you who don't know, I was hired as a Resident Assistant (RA) at my university this last quarter. However due to the process we  have to reapply for the following year in early January. Due to this I am going to be making more of these kind of images before my return to Savannah. This illustration is part of my rehiring process to be a Resident Assistant at SCAD next year. Basically I have to create a presentation to show in my interview.
The said presentation has to display situations I dealt with during my time as an RA and ways I have handled confrontations with students, so on so forth. This will be my first time reapplying for this position, but I have decided to have fun with the project and make it into something I might continue through the years that I attend college. Obviously I've taken quite a bit of artistic licence with the character given none of my residents at SCAD are green and can summon fireballs. You’d honestly be quite surprised with the things I’ve already experienced during my first quarter there. People aren't kidding when they say that art students are the 'odd ones' some of these images I’ll be posting won’t be all that far from what happened in actual event. This image displaying an actual fire hazard I had to deal with, minus the glowing fireball and replacing it with a metal stick of sorts.

" We stopped checking for monsters under the bed when we realized they were inside us" - The Joker

In the sector the monster that everyone sees when they enter is Skulli, he is hard to miss with his large stature and singular crimson robotic eye, a true beast in all sense of the word.  But the true monster of the hidden department of NEU is the one that passes unnoticed, the four armed girl with an innocent air, and a false smile. Those whom reside in the secretive walls of the prison called Sector One know this, but the reality is thankfully never seen by most. 

So what happens when Tea doesn't have the time to draw a ton of personal art in college? When she gets home she starts pumping out a lot of new art to compensate obviously!

Commission: Rainy Days by Octeapi
Commission: Rainy Days
 The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain. :rain: 

A rainy night, witty banter, a good book, only thing that would make it better is a cup of tea. 
Honestly, I find the rain calming. Not foreboding or threatening, its a soft reminder of the world we live in, and a lullaby for those with a restless sleep.
This tis a commission for serenadefox of her and her friend's characters sharing a calm moment curled up sheltered from the rain.

 Teastream offline by Octeapi

*blows dust off of Stream*





Don't post links without permission
Do not argue with me over requests. 
Only one request per person.
I don't really make a list for these.
If you had a request last stream you can't have one this time, lets let other peeps get one too. 
Keep the conversations pg-13 unless the age range of the chat permits it to be different.
Try not to curse, aka watch your language
Just because the rules are here doesn't immediately mean I will be taking requests!
Do not use the stream as your own personal pep session for a friend, or as an therapy circle.
Also, do not continuously try and get feed back on your own characters during the stream. 
Don't mention coffee.
Or lipton.

Difference between a 'Suggestion and a 'request::
A suggestion is like giving the artist an idea to draw, such as: "Draw Enya in a horror movie setting!" or "Archer and Rec arguing" Instances that they can draw out. You can get goofy and have fun with it of course! 

A request is "Can you draw my oc?" "i want a picture of *insert oc here*" *throws link of their OC out* ":I I SUGGEST THIS"
