A few days ago, I started re-working an old fangame project I started last year, giving it brand new artwork, level designs and a new focus, since the original project was really boring in the long run. I’m aiming for a lot with this new one (then again, I can’t really think of many projects I’ve done where I haven’t aimed big, lol), but my goal is to keep up a great sense of motivation with making smaller projects, and build my way up again into larger ones.
And also because making fan games for ask blogs is apparently what’s cool now.
I’m also seriously considering making an art blog, either out of this blog or through making a brand new one. Making another blog doesn’t seem like all that good of an idea though, since I’ve already got a bunch of blogs to manage. We’ll see how things go though!
Thanks! That first Steven Universe post I made a couple days ago was actually the first time I ever drew any of the SU characters, but I didn’t think I would love drawing Pearl and Steven so much, lol. Drawing those two actually feels second-nature to me, for some reason or another. I’ll have to practice drawing Amethyst and Garnet more though; they’re an interesting challenge for me to draw.
As for drawing expressions, I’ve found for me so far that it mostly comes from not only lots of the usual “Practice, practice, practice!”, but studying awesome faces I find in all kinds of media and figuring out how they work. Having a grand understanding (or at least a good gut feeling) for the facial anatomy of who/whatever you’re drawing is crucial as well; how you think the skull of the character might look/work, how the flesh on the character might flex or scrunch up with different expressions, etc. Unless the situation calls for it (such as an animation smear/multiple) I personally don’t like going too far overboard with expressions or making the character go off-model too much. I like a certain foundation of reality attached to what I draw, even if it’s a little puny foundation.
However, that’s all my personal opinion on drawing faces. Everyone’s got their own opinions on how to draw them, so the best thing I can think of suggesting right now (if you’re interested in drawing expressions your own way) would be to study how other people draw faces and make your own observations, then draw the faces you wanna draw. With plenty of practice, you’ll start to get an idea of what you personally want to see from your work, as well as how to more accurately mess around with a face and make some new expressions drawn in your own style.
Hope that helps! :)

^ OH MY GOD YOU DIDN’T
Thank you for the compliment! It means a lot to me that you took the time to let me know what you thought of my work!
I mean WOW
Judging by how my last post is being received, I guess I have even more of an excuse to draw these characters from now on! Thank you for the giant wave of support for my silly little drawings!
In fact, it’s actually a little refreshing for me, since I’ve been really itching to draw up some new fan stuff that people are interested in.
I also drew a rabbit this time. Because cats are so 2013. Rabbits are the best thing. Along with Pearl.
