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!

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.

A New Chapter by Octeapi
A New Chapter
So finally gonna give you guys a small update about the world that is Tea. 

I have recently started my time at a College known as SCAD, I am sure a few folks have heard me mention it a few times in the past. It has been the college of my dreams for since my Junior high school year, and I have finally made my way to it. Everything is outstanding, there are so many resources and advantages to this school I can hardly fathom what my future holds now. While I had to push my join date back so many times, it was honestly worth it. It is just a perfect fit for me. 

I am currently listed as a Sequential arts major, however I may jump to animation depending on how the winds blow in my favor. Or maybe down the line do something insane like a Double major if I'm feeling suicidal lol.  Finances have been an extreme issue for me when it comes to the price tag of this university, but with some string pulling I have found a way to make it work and have no intentions of leaving. I'm in for the long haul folks!

This image is a small illustration I've been working on for a few weeks, applying a few techniques I was introduced to in my foundation courses thus far. My schedule is going to be pretty crammed these next few years, but I have a whole month off in December. So this is not the last you get to see of the Cuppie! 

Hope ya buggars are all holding in there!

Fun fact: everything in this image is something I own in real life.

A small doodle from before I moved to Georgia, which yes that is where I am folks! 
I was originally going to color this but unfortunately due to my current situation, which involves being busy almost from dawn to dusk, I never got time to do so. 

However, for those whom don't know, these two are fan Gems, the puffhead being Joydroid 's gem Ambur, and my own Fangem Ametrine  (or Ame for short).

As you can see Ms. Treesap has orange hair, hence this lovely little nonsense scrap comic. 

Anyways, back to work!

I wonder if any of you would be able to guess whom this is from first glance. 

Believe it or not this girlie is actually Mette a few years in the future. Thats right my little ball of sunshine changes a ton as she gets older, sorta in a darker way actually. She doesn't really get to keep her preppy optimistic attitude for very long after some rather drastic changes occur in her and the sectors lives as a whole. Mette ends up going from blond girly girl to red haired, determined, pirate. 

Yes, Pirate. 
My how my baby has grown. 

However you folks aren't gonna be seeing a ton of this stage of her life for some time, I don't think. All depends on if the winds of temptation end up sweeping me away at some point in my busy schedual. 

All art and character belong to Octeapi

Just a tiny announcement, I will post art when I can but I have hardly any time to draw personal art these days. I have some art stored up in my stash that I can toss up here periodically so I am not gonna be entirely inactive, but trust me, there will be some new art to come in a few months.

Thanks for hangin' around guys :heart:

SO lookie who is late to the train and finally getting around to posting a Fangem? 
Those whom follow my tumblr will know I actually posted one of these a few months back:  
Gemsonas by Octeapi

However, I wasn't content with the original design thus it never made it to my deviantart page. I've been working on this off and on for some time just scraping together the different images for the reference, overall it's been sitting in my computer at least from around the middle of June. While this started as a 'gemsona' Ametrine is not very much like me at all. funny enough she's basically my complete opposite!

Ametrine is a very calm character, usually indifferent to most situations and having a great deal of tolerance to annoying scenarios, and people. Classifying her to three words, calm, kind, and stubborn. She is a warrior class gem originally from home world before she chose to abandon her station and being whisked off to some primitive world by a kindergarten gem known as: Amber. For the most part she just spends her time with that said 'gem', and taking each day at a time.

Ametrine, Ame for short, doesn't mind the somewhat clingy companion she has acquired. However that is not to say that she is bothered by solitude either, she is most accustomed to being alone honestly. Often times you might find her muttering to herself under her breath, practically having a full conversation by herself about a multitude of subjects. Though once someone notices, she stops and goes on about what she had been doing before hand. Discretely letting the abnormal behavior be dropped off as just that, abnormal, and unimportant. 

Ametrine's weapon is to put it lightly, her hair. The strands being like razor sharp wires, able to entwine her surroundings in a net of traps and slice her opponents apart if they become trapped in her grasps. Best way to describe them is to say, when when used as a weapon, her hair is much like monomolecular/monofilament wires. The best example of which being Walter from the anime Hellsing if anyone has watched that gorefest of a vampire show. Now with that briefly explained; imagine how many hair brushes she must break! 

Anywhoos, Prob gonna post more doodles of these buds in the future!

All art and Ametrine belongs to Octeapi 
Steven Universe gems belongs to its rightful owners.
Amber belongs to Joydroid
