gifts, trades, and commissions from amazing artists across deviantART!! ♥





I don't want this anymore by Tophlee Princess Kat by thatkidnamedflorence Gift For MaffyPop! by EvyKindhearted mew~ by rose-star maffy~! by rose-star Maffypop Redux by Magma743 Maffy Pop by Magma743
Maffypop Chibi Commission by cakoir Art Trade with Maffy-Pop by Saphiroko

with drawing anime/manga/stylized things.

okay that sounds pretty dramatic, but basically. i've been studying abroad in spain for the past two months, and it's been doing amazing things for my art, and while i know i am good at stylized/beautiful anime people, it feels more and more fake as time passes. and i'm realizing that my hand is guiding me towards some other kind of art.

i have a lot of things to post when i get back into the states (two weeks!!!), but for now, here's a video explaining this further - there's a few little snippets of what i've been making in the video, too. :)



love you guys, i'll see you soon!

Zea by maffy-pop
Zea
OH MY GOD, IT'S HERE. THE MOMENT IS HERE.
this is the last completed commission of the summer, and i CAN'T EVEN BELIEVE. i can't even believe.

this summer for my full time job i did commissions NON STOP and it was A REALLY REALLY COOL EXPERIENCE.

anyway, my friend Zea asked me to draw whatever made me think of her and she's essentially a nighttime-thriving blue fairy alien cougar soul with a sparky love for everyone and everything. so. YEAH. this popped out. it was nice to do something simple and cute after so many complicated paintings and out-of-comfort-zone subjects. :3

i had a lot of fun with this one! tried watercolor pencils for the first time, and my gosh do i love painting the starry sky :^) the scanner killed the colors a bit, check a phone pic here -> wow the colors

watercolor pencils, watercolor, colored pencils, and white gel pen

i'm more than ok with harsh critiques! lemme have it, I can take it >B)

Whom The Moon A Night Song Sings by maffy-pop
Whom The Moon A Night Song Sings
this is a ~16x20" oil painting done for a friend! he asked me to listen to one of his favorite albums, Whom The Moon A Night Song Sings, and paint my feelings to it. it's a neo-folk-metal-idontfuckinknow kind of melancholy melodic ride, and you guys should definitely check it out! personally, i'm pretty tired of the dark moodiness of the album after listening to it god knows how many times. but it was an interesting growing experience!

i'm not sure how i feel about the painting itself. i like it, and i'm interested to see where my traditional painting is going, but damn do i need to work on landscapes! painting is hard.

i'd love to hear your guys' thoughts and critiques if you have anything to say about this one! and if you'd like to see the study painting i did for this piece, check it out on my facebook!

not forever, though. :3

next week i'm flying out to london to spend a week there with my best friend, and the following week i'll be in Spain for three months for an art related study abroad trip.

i'll try to continue posting here as frequently as i can, but i'll more than likely lack a scanner. so if you want to keep the most up to date with my art, def click "like" on my facebook page. also, if you want to hear life updates, i'll probably still be obsessed with twitter.

and last but not least, make sure to check out my youtube channel! i'll be making travel-related vlogs and posting them as frequently as i can!!

Kate the Great! by maffy-pop
Kate the Great!
(kate stop posting drawings of yourself) nO YOU CANT STOP ME-

okay so basically since eighth grade (which was 2007-08 for you younguns out there) my OC persona has been me plus cat ears and a striped scarf and as CLOSE TO MY HEART as Maffin is, i've really outgrown her. i'm not a cute catgirl with a striped scarf and pink pants/skirt whatever anymore. no i am a BAMF FOREST ELF WITH TATTOOS AND AN AGGRESSIVE LOVE FOR PAINTING AND CREATING.

here are some old drawings of Maffin. [x] [x] [x] [x]

tbh tho. let's bring it in. let's get real for a sec. i really felt like i was illustrating my ~*identity*~ through my persona OC and i don't feel like kawaii pink cat ears really entirely exhibit a big sense of who i am anymore. i am a forest-dwelling, tattoo-obsessed, paint-running-thru-my-veins kid who ruffles her hair and feels the most beautiful with things like yoga and piercings and drawing rather than ~kawaii~ values which is something that has for so long dictated how i felt about myself. you KNOW?

alright i'm stopping but yea yea yea KATE ELF IS SO REAL AND SO GREAT.

this drawing was turned into a cute animated gif for my tumblr theme. :3
