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 an aspiring college student to be, trying to pursue her dreams to land herself in the university she's always aspired for. I have always wanted to be an artist, ever since I was young; however over used hte 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.

 Teastream Online by Octeapi   


Doodles, comics, and mooooore

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"

Drink Tea <3

Decided to throw together one of these fun pictures, another way to let peeps know when I'm streaming! I got one for the offline as well that I'll switch out when I end my stream tonight!  


Doodles, comics, and moooooredance…

Granny by Octeapi

A completed commission for a co-worker, he wanted an image of his deceased grandmother. A rather intimidating project I’ll admit.

When people ask for a relative, pet, or friend, especially one that has passed tend to have an expectation of what they reflected onto the images. Of how they perceived their loved ones in the past, even if the quality of the work is good. 

Its hard to capture that in an illustration, especially from an outsiders perspective. With any luck however, he’ll be pleased with this!

I can also say that this is my first full on painting piece I have done digitally. Would love to know what you guys think!
Should I do more like this, or stick to what I'm acquainted with already?

The Scars of Aclahym: Page 1 and 2 by Octeapi
The Scars of Aclahym: Page 1 and 2
" Welcome to to grand city of Alcahym: an ancient metropolis dating back to the first Meridians whom ventured under Ephomeris' surface. It is the largest and most magnificent of the underground caverns carved out by the Sauvakians colonies. While it's population bolsters many, this short story is about one particular mischievous little Sauvakian with more heart than he has sense named Almaca.

Read along and glimpse into Almaca's past as we set out into one of the most influential moments of his life. Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past is real. What lurking dangers await little Almaca? Let's find out!"

And so it begins! I've been preparing a short mini comic for a few months now featuring Almaca's misadventures, a bit of his homeworld, and a introduction a several vital characters within his inner circle during his childhood.

I thought now was as good as time as any to begin posting. In the future I will be posting these pages singularly, however due to the lack of information, and stimulating content in the first page I decided to post these two together.

I do wonder though, what did widdle Alma get himself into? He seems rather glum compared to his usual smiley deposition...guess only time will tell!

I used a few new fonts which I will include here with links:……

Those are some wicked fonst guys so I'd totally recommend you look into them if you're interested!

Disgustingly Massive Art Dump #3 by Octeapi
Disgustingly Massive Art Dump #3


Just a wee bit of proof for you guys that just because I am not posting art, doesn't mean I am not working on it. Some of these are pretty old, but a majority of the art here has been done in the last few months. I actually have more but I suppose I'll save those for when I do my next giant art dump, whenever that is going to be in the foreseeable future. 

Some of the images I included in here were WIP's and I hope to finish in the future so don't be surprised to see the completed version popping up at some point. 

All art and most of the characters belong to Octeapi
The photos at the bottom were generously given to me during a stream by the artists to let me draw. SO obviously they own their own face. 
Skulli, Voq, among others in this belong to Joydroid
