    GengarIsBestBoy Its a lot for me, though, since I’ve got a very low attention span and its hard to write for long periods of time

  • I was thinking about this recently, I’m gonna do this with my other spooky squad characters

    Grace: Girl is forced to go to carnival with family, lives to regret it

    Casey: Oh sweet child, you were too good for this world

    Beau: 🎵A loaded god complex, cock it and pull it🎵

    Alistair/Asthma man: An absolute N E R D who watches too many cartoons gets himself killed at a carnival bc he ate cotton candy. Skill issue

  • Absolutely love inverted character tropes

    “We’re not so different” speech except its the hero saying it to the villain

    Hate triangle (Character A and Character B both hate Character C, and the two bond over their hatred)

    Childhood enemies

    Unchosen one

    The preppy kids and the alt kids don’t hate each other (I’ve got two characters like this, they’re twins and they’ve got a good relationship)

  • Lifesaving tip:
    There is a keyboard command that is the opposite of ctrl + z; it re-does something that you’ve un-done.
    On Microsoft, it’s ctrl + y. On Mac, it’s ctrl + shift + z
    This has legit saved my life when writing

  • Pro tip: if you’re doing something and its just Not going the way you want it to, just. Stop. Stop everything and go do something else for a couple of minutes. Take a shower. Make microwave pretzels. Doodle aimlessly. Summon an ancient god in a Denny’s parking lot. Whatever that may be, just go Do Something Else for a couple of minutes, then you may go back to what you were doing. It helps.

    momonster i’m sorry why would you microwave pretzels

  • Remember “She was the Sun, He was the Moon?”

    She’s the sun. Her name’s Solaria. Uhh anatomy’s hard and I was considering giving her eyes but I think she looks better without them.
    She’s supposed to be unfathomably huge like the actual sun


    GengarIsBestBoy Quality go brrr

  • Sometimes I’ll hear the most beautiful quote ever and it’ll be from a goofy lil kids cartoon or something. Like this quote from The Ghost and Molly Mcgee:

    You’ve got Fort Knox in front of you, and you’re picking up pennies off the sidewalk.

  • I drew them a friend

  • Not to be unnecessarily creepy but the sun could very well be an eldritch being. Think ab it:

    —Is older than mankind, Earth, and our solar system as a whole
    —just kinda. appeared one day. I know its a lot more complicated than that but like its true enough
    —Can blind people if you look at it (and can cause cancer if exposed for too long)
    —many cultures used to worship the sun
    —just sends firey tentacles of rage wherever it wants, whenever it wants
    —if we could hear the sun, it would just be constantly screaming at us
    —will outlive all of us, and will probably cause the demise of the Earth when it explodes

    GengarIsBestBoy Actually, planets and stars and space stuff is really crazy because they just… exist!! They just. do stuff!! They just make solar flares and pull other things into their orbit and have big swirling storms!! But why? Why do they do stuff? We’re on a big rock in space with other big rocks and there’s also angry plasma balls here too, but somehow our big rock is the only one that is livable?! And we just so happen to exist, to live on it!!

    GengarIsBestBoy ^^Ok now that im looking at this, this is actually kinda profound (hope i used that word right) but the words were filtered through ten layers of goober before reaching this point

  • I’m really out here naming my characters after Undertale characters bc naming is hard

    And you know what? It works.

  • A #spookysquad sneak peak, but this time in the form of cover art!
    This was quite possibly my most favorite cover art to make for this series. I didn’t actually draw the hands / wing, but my drawing program has free drawing outlines that i edited around and colored / shaded

  • Please tell me I wasn’t the only one who used to watch those sad cartoon tributes made in powerdirector with sad music and stolen fanart (not necessarily loud house, but you get the idea)


  • Don’t you just hate when you change your whole art style for one character?

    His name’s Romeo, a cyborg with ✨issues✨…
    ✨Issues with his father✨

    Fun fact: he doesn’t talk through his mouth, but instead the speaker on his chest


    GengarIsBestBoy Looks kinda lopsided because I tilted my camera while taking the picture

  • Character dynamic:

    Character A: Tries to wear matching couple shirts with B
    Character B: Wears a shirt that says “I refuse to wear couples shirts”

  • You know, sleeping is such a weird concept
    You have to close your pretend to sleep before you actually fall asleep

    [quote="Snoink"]I tried to take a nap just now and was interrupted five million times by multiple children who decided that I needed to be interrupted because they wanted candy.

    They will not get candy.

    I will not get my nap.
