As a toddler, I once ate half a jumbo orange crayon. As a child I never believed in Santa but was fairly convinced I might be able figure out how to either float with umbrellas or slow my descent from jumps by kicking my legs like Luigi in Super Mario Bros. 2. If you combine my western zodiac sign with my eastern zodiac sign, I'm two sheep.My body collects chronic ailments and pains with the same enthusiasm a child in a park might collect fallen pine cones. I am too disabled to support myself, but not disabled in a way the US government really cares about.I've always drawn and written stories and stuff, but I didn't get serious until I was 12 and just discovering that fan art was a thing people did and that there was a word (anime) for the specific kind of animation I was becoming very interested in. I took some figure drawing classes in community college; that's the greatest extent of my formal training. I am decidedly Not A Professional and have no intention of becoming one; my limitations would make it impossible anyway, so I'm just doing my own thing.
WHAT'S DOODLEMANCY. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN??
It’s doodle + mancy as in the suffix used to denote specialized magic (ex. pyromancy, necromancy). my name is not mancy. if you wanna nickname it call me doodle!WILL YOU DRAW ME SOMETHING?
I am too dang busy/exhausted for requests or commissions most of the time. Sorry! Sometimes I open them on Ko-Fi, but it's like... real random.WHAT TOOLS DO YOU USE TO MAKE YOUR ART?
2012: Pencil, colored in Paint Too tool SAI with a Wacom Bamboo.
2013: Figured out how to draw with the Bamboo.
2014-19: SAI + an Intuos 4 that a friend generously passed to me.
2020-present: XP-PEN artist 15.6 and Clip Studio Paint.
I make heavy use of poseable 3D models, which I find helps my ADHD-Dyscalculia lil brain with stuff it can't otherwise process very well.
You can use my artwork in your icon/header on social media sites as long as you link back to me somewhere visible on your profile. I also don't mind (and literally can't stop you) if you use my artwork as a wallpaper or even print it out yourself, but please do consider buying prints/digital wallpapers from my shop or supporting me in other ways if you can afford to. :)Sharing on Social Media✦ Pretty please don't re-post my artwork on platforms I already exist on. Share the posts I've already made! If you can't find the thing you want, please contact me, I can find it or repost it for you.✦ If you insist on reposting, post the artwork UNALTERED, and link back directly to my website, doodlemancy.com. If you crop/edit out my signature and/or add your own watermark to my art, I'll appear in your kitchen at 3 AM, scream, and r̴̥̎è̸̬l̵̬̓e̷̓͜ả̷ͅs̶͕̄ê̵̟ ̴̯͠t̷̘́h̸̫͌ò̶̥ů̶͇s̵̤͐a̷͑n̶͕͌d̶͖͐ś̷ ̶̥͋o̴̢̓f̸̫̊ ̸̣̓c̵̼͌o̶͚̿c̸̬̉k̸̟̂r̷͖͝o̸̟̒a̵̝͝c̴̩̈h̶̘̾e̷͓͑s̴͍̋ ̶͛ͅf̸̝̈r̵̛̦ö̵̠́m̷̠̀ ̶̞̃m̸y̵͈̓ ̵̰̚m̷̭͛ö̷͉́u̷̺̓t̶͙h̷̻͑✦ If you use Pinterest or a similar site, make sure you are DIRECTLY linking to the source of the artwork-- a post rather than a page of a blog or something. It sucks to come across cool art on Pinterest, click a link and then find out it goes to a random page of posts on a tumblr blog and not the actual post the artwork was in!✦ If you are a news/entertainment site and you want to use my art, contact me with your EXTREMELY GENEROUS offer of legal United States currency! :)✦ Do not feed my art to content aggregators, ex 9GAG, Cheezburger, FunnyJunk, etc. they are where credit (and image quality) go to die.✦ If you slice up my art and distribute it as "free transparent pngs" or "clipart" or "renders" on your low-rent PNG website, I won't stop at a takedown notice. :)✦ Purchasing physical copies of my artwork or obtaining a hi-res copy through my patreon or ko-fi does NOT grant you a license to use it however you want.May I use your artwork for anything involving AI, NFTs, Crypto, & Other Web3/Blockchain/Metaverse tech bro garbage?
Nope! Go away!I've developed an amazing and wildly unethical new technology not named above! Can I convince you to allow me to exploit you/your art with it, somehow?
NO. :)Copying, Tracing, and Edits
Copying, tracing, and editing are perfectly valid and fun ways to learn art skills, just please don't try to pass off copies/traces/edits of my work as your own, it's rude (and there are better artists to learn from LOL).Why so picky? Don't you want exposure?
Even well-intentioned reposts usually benefit the account that does the reposting more than they help the actual artists! It's much, much more likely that we'll get more followers/make a sale/snag a commission/etc. if you share our actual posts. Artists joke a lot about being offered "exposure" instead of payment, but it IS important, and if all you can offer is exposure, it's best if it's direct. If you love art, support the people who make it!
contact email: firstname.lastname@example.org✦ commissions are closed, sorry!
✦ i do not have time for any kind of long-term work! but MAYBE a zine... wink wonk ;3c
✦ if your email has anything to do with AI, crypto, or NFTs, spare us both and don't bother!
✦ i am very interested in info about how my handmade stickers hold up under different kinds of stress. ;D

IRON COMPANY is my visual novel project in progress!
release date: MAN I HAVE ADHD IDK
engine: visual novel maker
genre(s): post-apocalyptic / horror / comedy / fantasy / enemies-to-friends

It’s been just over a century since the Rift– a cataclysmic event during which a barrier between dimensions tore open, spilling demons into the world and turning much of the planet into barren wasteland.At the climax of a desperate war for arable land, John Sykes and Petra Raskoph fought a duel to the death. Sykes stabbed Raskoph in the eye. Raskoph burned Sykes.
Dragged away to safety by their comrades, both of them survived. A year after the end of the war, they meet again by chance; Sykes, directionless and running low on cash, and Raskoph with a dangerous but lucrative job offer that neither of them can afford to turn down.
Pronouns: He / Him
Height: 5 foot 6 inches (167cm)
Sexuality: Grey-AceA farmer's son, ex-soldier and all-around Practical Guy, Sykes is good with his hands and bad with people. He prefers to express himself through actions rather than too many words, and his stone-faced demeanor can be intimidating to others. Cool headed, but not entirely fearless, he prefers to plan ahead rather than improvise.Something is following him.
Gender: Still figuring it out
Height: 6 feet 1 inch (185cm)
Sexuality: Diaster PanAn ex-Inquisitor from snowy Eisenarm, Raskoph is clumsily navigating her new life as a fugitive in the Southern Territories. Anxious, excitable, and always a bit distracted, she runs on intuition and often acts brashly. She is quick both to trust and to anger. Despite her erratic nature, she seems to have a masterful command of magic, and a lot of secrets she's keeping a lid on.She has forgotten something.NON-PLAYABLE CHARACTERS
A big hug that became a person.
A human trashfire.
A magictech nerd and chronic apologizer.
Friend to all birds.
A mysterious psychic.
Talkative, for someone who's dead.
They've seen some things.

In May 2019, a licensed medical professional wrote me a letter to give to my landlord that says I need a cat for the sake of my mental health. Two days later I adopted Tia, a rescued stray who my boyfriend had bonded with through the pet store he worked at. This page is a shrine to the only antidepressant I've ever tried that didn't make me barf (although she herself is an adept barfer). I also post a lot about her on my personal twitter (if you can tolerate all the kvetching and rambling).
