Teddy #10!
I’m trying something else new lately and liking it. Forget the whole scene post draft thing–I’m just posting as I go. Like if I were typing on the website and updating, except the website lags so I transfer all writing for the day onto the website. It’s this bullshit of completion that fucks me up. My brain gets neurotic, it wants to feel like it accomplished something, and if it doesn’t reach the set ‘goal’ the first day, it loses motivation the next. It starts seeing everything as a goal unable to reach. Hopefully this will remove that bullshit.

Also, great to discover during the last half of year during that time of getting better through mold toxicity, I was obsessed with a perfection of presentation. I thought patterns of writing were wrong, that I needed to present the text in a way that conformed to other writing that lacked those patterns. My brain was obsessed with this endeavor. It had labeled a certain presentation as the only ‘right’ writing and would not accept any other form–and was being quite a miserable bitch about the entire thing, might I add.

I have apparently gotten the fuck over that. Thank fuck! XD Here’s hoping that mentality remains. It’s far more fun to write when not being a critical bitch to oneself.

Oh, and I made a picture of KY!

Hellcat #27 is up in the Library!
Finally, fucking finally–and only because I broke the damn thing into two scenes. This fucking scene turned into a damn near 10,000 words. Oh, what, I write 10,000 word books? Why yes, yes I do. This sex scene turned into a fucking book all on it’s own.

Lol, it might be way too fucking long. I don’t know. I’m done looking at the fucking thing right now. No more breaks, no more questions or doubts–we’ll be lucky is I stop long enough to get a newsletter out this weekend. I’m finishing this fucking book. I’ve got fucking shit to do already. Rawr!

*** reread it. It’s exactly as long as it needs to be. Fucking sexy. <3

Wendy’s cover!
The second book in The Fantastic Immortals Series by Wendy Rathbone is written, and I needed to get her cover done asap. It feels pretty badass, imo. <3 Now to get back to Hellcat!

Draft of Hellcat #27!
I forgot how trying these long sex scenes can be, especially when they also serve the purpose of tying up a lot of the final threads in a story. It’s all plotting and planning and I keep expecting it to go faster and it just doesn’t. :/ But the draft has all the element in the right order now (finally!) and I hope to have it all cleaned up tomorrow… or maybe write the draft of the last scene and then flesh them both out. We’ll see.

Fucking comments…
Sorry for anyone who has made comments the last week or so… at least a week, I think. The software I use decided to just disconnect itself and yeah, now all those comments are gone the moment I reconnected. I dunno. I think this is my last straw with Disqus. I just want shit to work, I don’t want to have to fiddle or fight with it. If it’s not making my life easier and instead pissing me off to frustration, I don’t see the point in keeping it around… Although, it was super nice when it worked. Like, that was the whole fucking point of it. XD Ahhh *sigh*

Hellcat #26

Finally–fucking finally! Gah, okay, so Soot gets his name and his voice back and our lovely shapeshifter finally speaks his mind. Now to see what will happen to poor TJ. *eyebrow waggle*

I feel more myself today. Every time I leave the bedroom, my allergies flare up. So I just stopped leaving the bedroom and voila! I feel like myself again. XD Ah, it’s amazing what a little inflammation in the body can do to mood, thought, perception of the world, etc. Mental clarity is so quickly sacrificed with an allergic response.

February 1

null
Hellcat #25

Okay, had to redo Hellcat #25. I was in the middle of a 2 hour car ride the other night in which I realized Magnolia would never just give in like that. Even chained and threatened with death. Logic has nothing to do with it, that chick just has to win at everything. This version feels more honest to her, lol, and a bit more drama.

February 1

Delayed…
Hey, babes. So, my foster sister died. I wasn’t really expecting it to effect me. We weren’t particularly close outside of a shared history, shared understanding. She was one of the few I went to school with…

Anywho, I’m buckling down today. Expect updates soon.

Teddy #9 and Hellcat #25
Alright, I’m totally loving this new approach to writing. Why? Because I can erase the scenes I complete like checking them off in a To Do list! I feel so accomplished. XD Lol, I’m easily amused. <3

Teddy draft #13
Okay, so it was tough to post this cuz it’s the last scene in an episode not written–so hard for me to get my brain to allow me to put the cart before the horse, so to speak. But I’m doing it cuz it’s what I wrote and I gotta just fucking do things and stop being such a fucking perfectionist.

I want to flesh out the draft of an episode first and then edit it as a final draft all in one go. New technique… or so I say, cuz who the fuck knows what I’ll actually do, eh? XD Which is why I’m doing the writing goal thing. Episode at a time so even if it’s a little out of order initially, the focus is the same for completion.

January 24

null
Writing Goals
Okay, so the start of a new system. The idea is the stories under the Writing Goal area will change depending on what I’m working on at the time. I’ll list the scene drafts once I post them with the idea that they will be finalized before I switch out a serial story for another one. A focus on episode completion, I guess. Sorcerer Slayer and Awakening will be staples (the hope being to update consistently–er, once Hellcat is out of the way. One novel at a time, please. XD)

I think it’ll help keep me on track without being so neurotic that I go batshit. XD I can jump from these 6 stories, and once an episode is complete I can feel safe to jump to another option. I’d like to approach the novels in an episode style as well, basically 5 or so scenes each time. I work well in writing jaunts instead of slogs, lol. But yeah, let’s give it a shot and see how things go. I’m feeling pretty excited about it all. <3

City Howls drafts #11-15 Teddy’s Naughty Adventures drafts #9-13
This is basically the next episodes in draft and outline form. I’m trying something new writing wise and I guess we’ll see how it works out. I need something more goal oriented. Novels always fuck me up–Hellcat wasn’t supposed go past 30,000 words. And yeah, I love its new form but I just feel like I’m not finishing anything. I wanted to be working on serials while writing Sorcerer Slayer, somehow Hellcat replaced everything, and yeah, I’m not thrilled about it all. @[email protected] Time just slips away. I remember why I was holding back on the serials–I wanted to ‘fix’ the first few episodes of everything first like I did with Demon Bonded. You know, another reason not to get to the writing part of things. Seriously, I gotta find a way to trick my brain to do anything most days. XD

So, we’ll see if this works. I want to put the drafts up, and try to get a few scenes done a week on top of the novel writing. The current novel is Hellcat, the next one will be Sorcerer Slayer. After that, I’m thinking that Demon Virus remake of sexiness before jumping into the Sorcerer Slayer sequel (which I have no name yet but is all about Theodore kicking and screaming as he finds his mate. <3) 5 scenes in a serial can be a 10,000 word episode, it can be something completed so I don’t feel like I’m wading around in the dark never completing anything. I had hoped I wouldn’t need that as a writer, that’s why I liked the subscription model of writing whatever. I’m seeing now that a part of me works better with the structure of goals. Small, attainable goals that add up into series and such. Because seriously, these long ass novels feel like winter, you know? I’m just waiting for a spark, some bright sunshine and happy weather and life and it’s just a blur of grimy slush outside.

Demon Bonded Coven Saga drafts #8-11
These are pretty rough drafts but I want to get them up, get my brain focused. The reality is, I write the shit I know really fucking fast, and I know Demon Bonded. I keep pushing myself to do things a certain way and keep discovering how fucking much I suck at it. Why do I keep doing this to myself? I guess I just love to learn the hard way. I decided I’m not allowed to move forward until Hellcat is done, yet I’m struggling with Hellcat and nothing is getting done. I know, fucking dumb. Lol, feeling like Ky today, little bit.

I think you guys are going to like the next episode of Demon Bonded. The draft of scene #11 cuts off in the middle of an upcoming sex scene. I’m not sure how far I want to go with it, to be honest. Ky’s being a resistant brat, still very pissed off about everything even if he’s already decided to do the ‘right thing’ and fight for the Relics. I want Magnificent to give him a wakeup call, but I just don’t think Mag is ready to handle such a bitchy Ky just yet. XD

Hellcat #4-5 rewrite
Wow, I really didn’t realize how devoid of the characters the first scenes really are. I’m staring at scene 6 and I’m a little shocked with myself. I remember when I decided to attack Hellcat in a new way when first starting this story, I wanted to reveal the characters instead of just dumping all their inner thoughts on the reader like I normally do. I think I went overboard. I didn’t realize just how little Sean thinks about anything outside of his panic.

No wonder it was so hard to flesh him out; again, I was ignoring the ways I knew it would work for this ‘ideal’ of having it different. How silly. XD I forgot to let him react out of past issues, not just to the current situation. That is a character–his actions are all old software from his past that he repeats again and again in new circumstances until he finally finds a way free of his own bullshit thanks to the plot. It’s the tension of wondering if he’s going to just fuck himself all over again that’s more interesting than the simple reveal of why he’s fucked up. The info is needed in the beginning to allow for empathy, and goodness, I just didn’t do the work. ^^ But what fun to find it now!

January 19

Hellcat #1-3 rewrite–so fucking worth it!
So when I decided to go back and sex up Hellcat, I kind of ignored the first few scenes. Then, as I approached the ending and tried to get a feel for TJ and Sean’s relationship, I was upset. There was nothing to suggest the level of intensity that Sean has bubbling, or the kinda obsessive clinging TJ has for Sean. I wanted to see that first, so when it all culminates, it’s far more interesting.

I used to be intrigued by other artists (drawing/painting) who would be surprised to learn an artist scrapped an earlier idea, they let it go and allowed the drawing to be something else–something ultimately better because of it. It’s hard from a creative mindset to do that. We look at our creations as something to cling to, to identify, and not only do we judge ourselves if it doesn’t reach a certain standard, but we can choke hold that poor creation so tight, it doesn’t have an ability to change and grow.

This, I think is what I really admire about Jen, an author I chat with, because she is always so ready to go into a script and chop it the fuck up so it can be something even more amazing. Not only that, it seems to come from this place of excitement–I get to make it be something even better!–instead of frustration. I want that more in my life. I didn’t realize I clung to writing the way I saw artists cling to drawings. Like those first sketch lines have to stay, have to fucking mean something instead of being allowed to evolve. I found the characters later in the book and now I need to put them in the beginning, otherwise, it might not be that good of a story.

I think if I cling less to what I ‘want’ the story to be (in many a case, done–just be done already!!! XD) and focus more on letting the story be what it wants to be, the process can be far more enjoyable. And… I might feel a little self conscious because I’m sharing all the draft work online. A little part of me wonders ‘do people see me change things and think I’m a bad writer?’ XD Well, if they do, they do. Lol. I got to this point in Hellcat where I realized I want the mood of the sequel to feel like HEAT, where Sean is going to go completely obsessive over TJ, and really, how can we have so much fun without the first book leading up to it? XD You gotta give a character something to grow from or it just looks like they’re standing still.

Paperbacks
Got distracted. XD I suddenly realized I hadn’t actually ever put Apprentice Saga into print, and hey–I got the new, pretty covers and the series is all edited, and yeah, wtf, Sadie? Get on that shit.

…They look a bit like manga covers, eh? <3 I used to read manga voraciously–I think it inspired a lot of themes in the Demon Bonded series, actually. Ah, nerding. XD

Introducing the Dick Filter XD
I’m sitting here about to tackle the next scene in Hellcat and looking back at previous scenes going, huh, was that really sexy enough, did I convey Sean’s desires well enough to push the tension forward? How would I fix it? I know, I need a Dick Filter! Lol.

There are these parts of the character you filter events through to provide motivation, and sometimes certain scenes loudly get certain parts responding. A problem requires the brain, a conflict requires the heart. But the body is present in all things, and given this is an erotic story, I’d like to see that sexy, obsessive, absolutely selfish desire get represented more. So once I finish this draft, right before the final, final edit, I’m going to go through and see what a dick filter will do for each scene. XD

I think it’ll be fun, especially in those beginning intro scenes. <3 I have this idea of how Sean has been lusting over TJ and it’s supposed to make him act like an asshole to his friend, but I never really show it. I want to show that perspective where Sean’s repressed desires make him a total asshole, and how TJ is really just a sweet fuck for putting up with it (and maybe a masochist, at that. >D) Funny how sometimes you don’t find the characters until the end, then you have to go back and put them into the beginning.

Whoot, this baby is over 70,000 words atm. @[email protected] I’m boggled. I wasn’t expecting Hellcat to be a fucking novel, just a short. Fucking showed me and my expectations. XD Looks like 3, maybe 4 scenes left to go depending on how I break up the ending. Squee, super excited! Also, let me just throw this out there for my own dumbass expectations, 3-4 months isn’t a bad amount of time to write a novel, at all. I don’t know why I keep expecting shit to magically manifest overnight (no matter how useful and awesome that would be.) It takes as long as it takes.

Speaking of which, guess whose been whispering (and arguing) in my ear lately? Fox and Vincent. Totally not having a mental breakdown–joys of being a writer, this is normal! They’re getting ready to take over writing time. I want to read through their story once again. I have this vague idea of the ending, and I think that’s where I’m getting hesitant. I had this same problem with Demon Arms, actually. I wrote the majority of the book, then stopped for half a year–yeah, no one knew I was writing that novel so there wasn’t anyone to kindly point out to get back on track. I needed to let the characters stew and figure out where they wanted to go before I actually sent Wylie and Dorian into that mirror to save Beck.

I have a feeling my plans laid out for the current ending to Sorcerer Slayer are going to be completely usurped by the characters by the time we all get to those final chapters. And fuck, it’ll be amazing for it, pretty sure. I loved how Demon Arms ended just as much as it began. It’s worth the extra time to let the characters figure their shit out enough to show up and play. <3

Site Update
Doing some major updates on the site, atm. It’s not something visual–a link issue of epic proportions that will make life ultimately easier with this caching bullshit. But as I go through the process you might see some issues as pages move, links update, caching fucks things up, etc. Apologies. I’ll try to be as quick as possible.

Hellcat #22
So I ended up sculpting the end of Hellcat, aka, outlining and drafting the last… six, maybe seven scenes depending on how it flows. Sorry for the delay, but apparently my brain wouldn’t let me go forward until I had it all set up first. It’s going to be at least another 10,000 words by the time I’m done.

I might try something new this time around where the editing process involves the final draft process as well. I edit by running the story through the speech function on Word to catch any mistakes, but also to hear how the story sounds aloud, if it has the right rhythm I like–if shit makes sense. XD Lol. I might just combine drafting with that final check just to see if I can’t speed things along. I want this book done already, to be honest. I already have the sequel planned (Sean becoming a daddy, Soot fighting Magnolia for the keys to his castle, so to speak, and of course, corrupting TJ–as well as abducting him.) It’ll be fun, but planned for later. The guys from Sorcerer Slayer are getting impatient, damn it.

Hellcat #20-21
Alright, so I posted them as drafts but they’re pretty much done in their current form. Weee, getting to the good stuff! Oh, and I think I just about have the final blurb ready for the book. It was hard to pick the voice to go with, the angle–It really is the tough part when writing a book. I know all the ups and downs, the plot, the twists, etc, and you look at a blurb and you want to say it all at once. Ugh. It’s so much easier when you have no clue what the book is about in a lot of ways to just pick a perspective and go with it. I think I got the gist in this blurb–and if not, I love the quirkiness of it all. XD

Sean knows what those wicked, hellfire eyes want. Him, on his knees, taking every finger, tongue, tail, and tentacle.

This is what being corrupted by a demon feels like. It has to be. Sean’s not supposed to have fangs, damn it, or know magic. And this bs where he’s horny and begging all the time? No, not freaking happening. He’s just a nerd—a hot, gay, totally panicky IT specialist, who needs to find a solution to his destroyed business, asap. He doesn’t have time for whatever weird this shape-shifting demon is into. Soot can’t just claim him whenever he wants, over and over again. He’s about to be homeless!

If he doesn’t save a witch from a psycho, it’s game over. But Sean’s changing, turning into someone he doesn’t recognize. He’s not sure if he can play hero, not even when Soot abducts his painfully straight crush to the top of a tower full of witches, gargoyles, and one very pissed off dragon.

There has to be a way out. Stealing a 3 million dollar hellcat isn’t a binding contract to be a sex thrall, no matter how much his demon master disagrees.

New laptop!
Okay, I love the damn thing. I mean, it’s heavy as fuck compared to the chromebook and I need to care about things like the fan and stuff–but hey, cozy in this freezing winter atm. <3 But fuck, it makes updating the site so much easier. So freaking much, you can’t even understand. I usually do anything coding on the PC cuz my chromebook was so laggy. So much on that chromebook was a compromise out of necessity instead of making life easy.

I don’t know why I cling to shit that makes life difficult, but I do. Here’s to letting go of old shit and embracing new things. Now back to Hellcat!

well fuck…
This is why we backup. I didn’t backup every single freaking thing because I didn’t think the problem was this big, but I got pretty much everything of significance. Guess I’ll be computer shopping tomorrow. Can’t mount the croot even after updates and fucking around running down every anomaly it’s spouting. Maybe it’s time to give windows/word a shot instead of depending on pieced together never quite full programs… Not sure what I’ll find to replace my html editor–I fucking love Brackets. (Ooh, they have a Windows version!) And I’ll need something to format epubs… unless the online version of libre office can do that? No, that was an extension. I guess I could use Calibre but it never seemed to convert to my standards…

Gah, everything bleeds money outside of linux. fuckballs.

#19 Hellcat!!! Everything changes. XD
I took the week off from the Newsletter. Things are kinda slow going atm and I wanted a chance to breathe. Let’s see, Hellcat is on fire–fucking love it! Found the spark and it’s all good. I’m making art again. First it was just to see if I could. Now I want to make all the characters I love come to life. <3

A small concern about my chromebook… fine, not so small depending on how things go. So I have a modified chromebook with crouton because for whatever reason the google version of things was just so fucking slow. I mean right out of the box the damn thing was dragging, and this was a new machine… 3? years ago when I got it. My memory is shit. But yeah, it was slow, sluggish, and I don’t know why it was so hard to just find a computer to write on. Ubuntu let me use Libre office, and once I discovered Scrivener, whoo, forget about it. Free software, fast response and I could still get online and browse like a breeze–even the Internet browsing with the google side was fucking slow and the saving was shit. Not customization–I hate not being able to customize my shit. It’s why I won’t touch Apple. Why throw down cash for something you can’t make your own? I don’t know how google made a simple machine and fucked it so bad, but crouton saved the day and I was lucky to have a processor that could handle the more advanced version of Ubuntu.

But, something happened. Not sure what, if it’s crouton, memory, or purely a Scrivener problem or what, but I’ve lost data on Hellcat the last time I closed the program. Thankfully it’s all backed up on the website–no new data lost, but I’m wary going forward, wary I may have lost things in other docs I’m not aware of. I’m going to cloud everything and go through and hopefully I’ll have a working chromebook by the time I’m done. @[email protected] This was the same machine that got a bad spark and blew out the battery port a few months back. I’m worried I might be looking at residual hardware damage.

I’m not looking forward to the cost of a new machine–not even just the cost, but because they don’t do what I want. If it wasn’t for crouton, this chromebook would have been fucking useless to me. Google docs is slower than a drying turd on its own chromebook and far from intuitive. My bf has a chromebook but didn’t have the right type–processor or something–so his linux partition is shit, can’t even run a browser. I’m not sure if I can find something this nice going forward. :/ Hopefully, it’s all in my head and the computer just had a little hiccup. Can’t count on it though. Not if I might lose data…

Ah, fuck. I seriously hate needless work. It’s the worst time of year for this with cash sucked up by the holidays… but I did just get a chunk of change from Pronoun. Maybe I’ll get lucky and find a sale chromebook with the right specs–happened for this one. I don’t want a laptop, I don’t want something needlessly complicated and bulky when all I use this machine for is writing, posting that writing, and writing html to format the mobi files. I like a streamlined machine made for the job, which is why my PC is a beast made for graphics (artist) and I keep it simple for the writing. I never understood the bullshit of throwing down thousands for a computer when most people just use it to browse the fucking Internet. Get a cheap tablet–more cost effective than a smart phone–if that’s all the computer is for you. Over glorified paperweights in every home.

  • Maike

    Hi
    To have a site with updates ist great 😁
    But could it be possible to mark which updates are also for free members and which not?

    • Sadie Sins

      Ooh, absolutely! That’s a wonderful idea and when I post today, I’ll be clear about it. Thank you, Maike! <3

  • DeAunna Thomas

    Do you have a sequel in mind for the Troubled Boys Series? I really loved the first one and am anxiously anticipating the next.

    • Sadie Sins

      Hi, DeAunna! Sorcerer Slayer is actually the sequel to Demon Arms, which I’m in the process of writing now. You can read as I go here. http://www.sadiesinsbooks.com/the-library/sorcerer-slayer/ After that I have… oh… at least four more books in the series. I love the Academy world, and characters, and have far too many plans for them all. XD Sorcerer Slayer is focused on Fox and Vincent and introduces Raider, who gets a book later with someone I refuse to name just yet. 😀 I’m really hoping to get Sorcerer Slayer done sooner rather than later. I keep trying to bully myself into finishing it up but it’s stubbornly going at its own pace.

  • Yay! Congrats on making it to scene 50!! \o/

    • Sadie Sins

      Thank you! o^.^o I’m so excited to watch this story unfold.

  • I was dying for these updates, thank you Sadie <3! And hooray for the artist cover, I hope it'll work! *cross fingers*

    • gabs

      Me too! I’m really excited about it but I don’t want to get my hopes up. Hopes are so difficult. XD

  • megu

    *test the new comment section*
    Your website’s design update looks so nice Sadie! You did an amazing job <3 you deserve tones of sleep now!

    • Lol, thank you, hun. *glomp* I won’t go into how I was up another 2 hrs after cuz of the stupid blog widget showing up on non-blog pages and half my book links breaking. @[email protected] But it’s done! For now. >_<

  • Ugh, I totally understand the stress you’re going through and the “what if I fail” feeling. It’s like, my everyday life. But still, you’re a talented writer and I hope your work will be noticed even without Amazon. *hug* Regarding the prices, it breaks my heart to read that you’d lower to 1.99$. Even 2.99$ is so cheap… T_T Well, the good thing is that you can earn royalties with Pronoun.
    Take care of your health dear, I’m getting really worried!
    (Oh I’ve finished reading DB Demencious saga and I loved it!! Gonna read Apprentice asap<3)

    • Oh, hun, you’re such an amazing artist. *hug* I don’t understand the world some days. It seems to be less about talent and just waiting to be noticed among a sea of many. It’s tough to be an introvert in this field. I think it’s tough to be your own damn cheerleader when it comes to the insecurities that go hand in hand with the creative field.

      I’m better today. I’m doing the price research still; I just went back onto the other platforms and $2.99 seems like such a staple, I’m not sure if I wouldn’t stand out as ‘low quality’ with a lower price tag. There are so many ways to approach this stuff, it’s just finding the right strategy. I feel like the subscription site has the best stability long term so I need to see how that works in this new step.

  • Sadie I’m so so so excited to read more about SS, I miss the guyyyys <3

    • Me too! It already feels more vibrant and energetic vs this kind of slow decay of energy that was going to happen if I continued the way I was going. Hoping to have a scene ready tonight of SS, plus one of Intangible.

      Funny how you can have these wonderful plans, clutch to them like they’re important, and then throw them out the window for the better. Not even the outline, but I’ve been fighting this bitch of an idea that because I can write a certain amount of words in a certain amount of time, that those words are going to be a novel, and it will be perfect first time around, and it should just be accepted as such. But unless the characters step up and do their thing, that shit never happens. Expectations are such a battle in creativity yet so hard to let go. I guess it really does take as long as it takes. *blah* XD

      • Haha I completely understand. Sometimes you’re so proud of planning your story, thinking it’ll be like that, and like this. And then everything changes! But I believe it’s for better, yes. Plus it’s your characters, they tend to be the ones that decide. 8’D
        Anyway, I’m so hyped for SS. o/

  • Shawna White

    Hey, Do you know when the next demon volume 2 will be out? I got one and I’m excited to read the rest.

    • Hey, Shauna. So… I’m assuming you mean Demon Arms? Or are we talking Demon Bonded Collection? I’ll answer for both, just in case. <3

      Okay, so the Demon Arms sequel, Sorcerer Slayer, I'm hoping will be ready by December depending on editing, cover artist, etc. It's a lose goal because I don't want to rush it and ruin the book. Demon Bonded Collection #2, which is the Apprentice Saga will be definitely republished by next month. I just need to find the time to make a cover around all the other stuff I'm doing. I'll be working on Coven Saga as I go along; I refuse to let so much time fall between episodes again. Hope that answered your question, and if it didn't, feel free to ask away. Great to hear from you!

  • A++ for the draft idea Sadie!

    • Thanks, Megu. <3 I've been ruminating on the draft idea for ages, unsure if anyone would want to read something 'unfinished.' I guess it took a while to remind myself most of the stuff I wrote while sick was not the best, yet people still enjoyed it and I need to put my ego aside and just get the story out. I think this is going to open up me being able to write more and feel far less guilt when I go on Sorcerer Slayer binges and can post Demon Bonded drafts kind of thing.

  • Dale

    You can airbrush on canvas. A gessoed canvas is not as absorbent as paper so you would need to be sanded with very fine sandpaper to give a smooth eggshell surface.

    • Hey, Dale! Do you airbrush at all? Ugh, I forgot 1) how much I like smooth surfaces and 2) how much I hate gessoing and sanding. What a chore, and a total oxymoron to get the result I love, a smooth surface. I actually have these little acid free comic book boards that I was painting on for a bit cuz they were so smooth. Fabric does seem to be the way to go big. Paper is just wood pulp at a very fine grain… I do wonder if there could be a way to spray a paper finish (mixed with some sort of adhesive) that could give you the absorbency enjoyed as a final surface on larger areas. It might be a fun project idea…

        I actually blow glass, occasionally paint with acrylics and oils and even stained glass. A good friend of mine with whom I have lost contact with used to airbrush. He airbrushed on several different types of surfaces. I myself have never had the chance to try it. I did spend time while he worked and basically explained the differences and techniques that he accomplished.
