Mood Board October



Yesterday, I was a flower.

All bloomed and rejected to have a groom.

Yesterday was my last,

I don’t know if I can take this but here I am…

I am a woman but don’t confuse

my role with my abilities.

I maybe shy but my voice can echo

Feel it as it can heal your narrowed heart

Let me end by saying this is not a piece of art.

Please, now you can depart!

First time making a motion comic



So, I’ve decided to stick to one type of animation that I really enjoyed. I looked back in my journal and stop motion was one thing that I’ve been interested in. I want to incorporate both silhouette and cut out. I just love how it looks .  Everything is quite new and I am still new with doing animations.  The same rules do apply that means nothing will be easy. This also means more learning with walking cycles and exaggerations.

Greyscale Digital Painting


First time doing greyscale

Last week, I decided to work on grey scale digital painting because I have realized how I wanted more attention on the eye make. While painting in color I noticed how high contrast the makeup and the face is. Adding on, I do admit I had  to learn about color theory which I have ignored for century.

Final animation for mystyle

A challenge that I have faced while doing my digital in grey scales is, I can’t really blend the varies layers. I learned about having a  base, blush, contrast and shadow layer but I don’t actually know how to blend them together. I don’t know if this is because I need to change the blending layers I just do not know how to go about it.

The Day I peed Myself+Changes!


So, whats up sassytaco it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and I hope you guys are having a wonderful day because I am! So, I will begin this wonderful adventure! I am announcing  it right now before I jump right into it.

I began a youtube channel whereby I started off creating illustrations and I can’t deny that it was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo boring and now I am backing down with it. It’s not really something that I was interested in doing as beginner but nor was tutorials something that I would love to do because there are so many tutorials out there (unless you want some!).  Soooooo I want to take another approach on my videos just because I don’t want to be that ”YOUTUBER” who comes out and says nah this is not what I wanted to do.

Here is the Adventure I want to create more story-times and some other creative videos for my YOUTUBE channel that I am really proud of and I will put my best in them. These are not just normal videos such as vlogs, makeup tutorials but ANIMATIONS. Okay, I know ..I heard alotta of YOUTUBERS that are animators that have said youtube is not a place for animators because you can’t reallymoonandsun.png earn a living on that but I am NOT so interested that is why I have been going on. Been kicking! Been doing me! Now sometimes I do get out of my niche just because I feel nobody is actually listening to what I am saying but FASHION ILLUSTRATION ANIMATIONS is the way.

I want to know How was your day and Here is my video for the day!

Things that I fear as an ”artist”


Whats up sassytacos it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow! How are you? How are you feeling? what did you eat for breakfast? what did you eat for dinner?

So, I wanted to post a blog post on my semester 1 of Uni but felt it was too late so I have to live with the fact that I did not do that but that is that. So, um sorry I got to start with ”so” and if your strict with grammar read no further there will be lots of filters and etc. Okay I am kidding..Okay, here is the thing. In high school I took a break from art just because I felt school was so important and now I am regretting it. I would have improved! Now I am stuck on fingers, shadows and drawing heads! Lots of heads in different directions. You know what? I wanted to change the title of the blog post just because I do not consider myself as an ”artist”. You know why? I do not think I am good enough. 

There are times whereby I would look at other artist’s works that are ”professional” and be like ”well, I wish I could do that”. Maybe than I could sell and make lotta of money but I don’t want to plus I can’t draw like that ..so..YOLO!


RANDOM THOUGHT:  I have heard alotta stories whereby people would say you can’t make it as an artist in Namibia just because nobody would buy your work but the tourist! If they want to..I guess times go by and I see alotta of great art and yep they just sit there. Thinking positive in my art is clearly not in this world..I wonder if there is a future for my work? I feear I will not make it as an illustrator just because I don’t think I am good enough nor I do I think anybody would be willing to buy my stuff because well I am not good enough! There are so many illustrators out there and yet I can’t fit in that category of being ”the artist.” Which leads to another fear..GIVING UP!!


Last time I checked I gave up art for school just because I had to work my socks off..WORK DID NOT PAY OFFF I GOT A FRICKEN D IN HISTORYY ..A D!! I fear if worst comes to comes ..nails fall off a closet..doors slam..WW9 ..I might just give up!

Character design

Whats up sassy taco it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and happy Monday! How are you? what?..nooo… you on break ..okay…This is a long waited video that I have been hopping to post but due to the fact I was not motivated (not lazy) it just set there. A while back I wanted to create a comic because during that period I have realized that some skins where not recognized. You know when you think you will be the next John Green but then something just hits you hard and you can’t do it anymore. That is what happened! I just gave up continued to stick to school and hoped to graduate. I hope you guys enjoy this masterpiece because it was not at all easy to record. I also realized that I want to change to change my channel a bit but I feel I will discuss that in my next blog post. WARNING BEFORE WATCHING IT IS 18 MINUTES OF BLAH BLAH!  Sit down ,take some popcorn and listen to me speak …yeah exciting!

Birth of perfectionist


Bend the rules, you don’t need to follow them.

sometimes you just gotta look at them as written words by men.

Written to be followed but once broken, something new is created.
