I introduced myself on the tumblr, but why not again for the forum? Instead of showing off my awesome face cup, I'll just use the picture of the time my roommate and I had a wheat grass plant named Wheaters that grew so fast it was scary.
Hello everyone! It's lovely to meet you all!
I'm both excited to join this group, but also a little nervous since I tend to not be into some of the other things most Good Omens fans enjoy. However, I guess that's just a natural reaction to being pretty new and all. I look forward to discussing things with everyone!
Anyway, I'm Alice and I'm basically a cartoon! I love drawing and animating and I'm striving to improve in both categories. I'm pretty excited to go back to my college in a few weeks to learn even more awesome techniques to help me out.

It is a wonderful plant, is it not? I bet Crowley would be jealous. XD
That thing was crazy, though! I got it from a small college event to help brighten our dorms with this cup of wheat grass seeds. My roommate and I named it Wheaters because 1) it was wheat grass and 2) after Wheatley from Portal 2.
The thing grew crazy fast! Each day it kept getting taller and taller and the roots getting longer and more intricate. It was gorgeous and terrifying.
Unfortunately it had a short life span and didn't make it Finals. :c Wheaters was the best, man.
Wow that plant looks sexy. I have a black thumb, any plants I have die LOL RIP Wheaters.
Also I just really adore your animations. You're so good at them. They're just so smooth and gosh I still get all fluffy feelings from that one with Crawly!Crowley kissing Aziraphale's cheek. I've never really been able to grasp the concept of animation myself.

Wheaters will be sorely missed.
And I'm very honored that you really like my animations! I love your art, too!
I still have a lot to learn (going to delve into some 3D animation this coming Fall), but I like to think of myself as a good provider for some sweet fluff. Can you tell that I'm pretty much a fluffy person? XD
I'm also planning on making another silly gif of those two and sketching out some quick comic pages, too. You know, just for the fun.
(Also, there's a ton of different types of animation, but I generally just do a LOT of layers: drawing each single frame and sometimes holding some. It depends on what I want to accomplish. So, basically, it's traditional animation, but I do it on a computer sometimes.)
