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 OFFLINE by Octeapi

Bring on the DOooDLES! Annoying Bonzi Balloon Boy Chat Icon 

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

Hunter not Huntress. by Octeapi
Hunter not Huntress.
Thought I'd share a bit of an interaction between Esra and her younger sister Kiyah. 

With how the family dynamic is, while all the children are greatly adored its hard to split the parental time between each of them evenly. Especially when raising the oldest Ibeyi to take over the role of Monarch in their nomadic group. Due of this Kiyah often lashed out at any opportunity, the general underlying cause being her  trying to gain more attention from her family. Something she admittedly felt deprived of as a kit.  Due to their closeness in age Esra was often the one to acknowledge these outburst the most.

Over the years Kiyah becomes greatly attached to her older sibling confiding in her much more than any other family member. Including sharing some of her dreams and aspirations, even when they are somewhat out of reach in their time and world. However, sometimes having at least one person whom knows and understands, can make all the difference for someone.

There is a lot I like about this image, and a lot I don't like about it. Really it was an practice image to work on Archers Redux a bit more, I should of paid more attention to the anatomy of it however. Oh well, it is what it is, and we live and learn!

Archer baby ;v; I still love your redesign, especially his HAIR OMPH BOYYEEE. I admit it, I love seeing dudes with attractive ponytails I mean, dannnnggggg

I'd completely start a war over tea..

“As far as her mom was concerned, tea fixed everything. Have a cold? Have some tea. Broken bones? There's a tea for that too. Somewhere in her mother's pantry, Laurel suspected, was a box of tea that said, 'In case of Armageddon, steep three to five minutes'.”
