Howdy

I'm a Chinese-American artist. I draw cute and grotesque cartoons about necromance, eroguro, mediocrity, heavy metal, and androgyny.

Most of my comics feature a revolving cast of my own characters. I'm primarily influenced by American comics, Chinese ink painting, and Japanese doujinshi.

When I'm not making art, I'm taking care of my cats, dogs, and chickens.


What should you do now that you're here?

  • Read my comics freely, and help my evil influence grow.

  • Buy my comics or other art to financially support me, my wife, kids.

  • Email me if you'd like to collaborate or send a nice message :)

  • Commission me for non-commercial custom art.

  • Wander my site and have fun!

    Where do you get your stuff printed?

    Zines, stickers and art prints:
    I DIY most paper goods. I currently use a Canon IP8720, but would recommend a Canon Pixma Pro-100 because of its larger color palette. I'm aiming to upgrade to a Canon Pixma Pro-200.
    For cutting paper, I have both a guillotine and slicing paper cutter. Zines are printed on opaque copy paper, with cardstock covers. Stickers are printed on a mix of vinyl, matte, and glossy sticker paper. I use a mix of Red River and Canon photo paper for art prints.

    Charms:
    I use ZapCreatives, Vograce, or Juno to print my charms, depending on which manufacturer can make what I want. Zap has a nice selection of custom color acrylics. Vograce and Juno have cool holographic options.

    Dakimakura:
    I use Vograce to print body pillows. They may be a middleman for another factory. I also join group orders (check AANI) whenever I just need a couple printed.

    Everything else:
    For anything weird like boobie mousepads, I probably joined a group order. Most group orders source from Alibaba, an Ebay-like site for manufacturers. Have a look on there and shop around!

    What digital brushes do you use?

    Primarily the default G-Pen and some brush pens for CSP lineart: Kaze Fude. Ink Pen. Tint Texture Brush.

    I use a variety of brushes for textures:

  • Mixergraph Free Grunge Brushes
  • Retrosupply Colorlab
  • True Grit Texture Supply Debaser

  • What traditonal tools do you use?

    A Pentel Brush Pen is the easiest fat pen for me to use. I refill the cartridges with with Noodler's, Hydrus, and PH Martins Black Star ink depending on what I can find around me.

    Pentel Color Water Brushes are for a slightly different, more controlled feel.

    For thin brush lines, I use a Pentel Artist Brush Sign Pen. It's like an eyeliner pen for drawing. It's pretty sick.

    For controlled, non-variable thin lines, I like Ohto pens. They tips are much stronger than Microns, and can withstand my mighty hulk grip.

    Otherwise, for sketching I like whatever I can find on my desk. Chewed up pencils, free pens from hotels...

    Will you draw __?
    Who is Shane?

    He's my wife and a pretty cool guy and a real Chinese chief.

    What are your pronouns?

    For people I know IRL, any. For strangers, please avoid referring to me in the 3rd person. Strangers should refer to me as SCUMSUCK or tempural.

    Is your character a BOY or GORL?

    All my characters are fluid in gender and sexuality.

    Can I draw fanart or write fanfic of your characters?

    Heck yeah! Tag me or send me what you make! and let me know if I can upload it to my HALL OF FAME gallery!

    About the site

    This site, SCUMSUCK.COM, is hosted on Neocities. All art and text on this site was created by me, unless otherwise specified. I type the site's HTML and CSS in Visual Studio Code, then copy/paste the text into Neocities.

    I moved to Neocities as my host in the Summer of 2021, because Wix did not allow me to sell "adult content" (my eroguro art). Plus I don't like drag-and-drop site customization.

    I like Neocities' adult content policies, and having full control of the HTML/CSS has been fun. I've been learning HTML/CSS by myself by using the "view source" and "inspect element" tools on websites I like.

    The design of this site is inspired by:

  • 2007-2014 Tumblr blogs.
  • 1990's-2000's repositories, such as the bluntly humorous rotten dot com library, or the paysitesmustbedestroyed archive's simplicity.
  • 1990's-2000's cutesy Neopets pages.

    For many people of my generation, these sites were the first experience we had with the concept of HTML/CSS, and I carry these experiences with me into my adulthood.

    I'd like to maintain the 90's web feel of my childhood, with modern accessiblity. I do not believe that old web aesthetic needs to have constant flashing gifs and unreadable font and color combinations. Especially if those things can actively harm and alienate away people with disabilities. I use the content of my website (the words, the thoughts, and images) as my creative expression, with the web design accentuating the focus of my creativity.

    My store is hosted on Ecwid. Ecwid doesn't have complex HTML editing, but I have customized some of the CSS myself.

    I bought my domain name (SCUMSUCK.COM) via G**gle Domains. I've used NameCheap in the past.

    I'm hoping to document more of my site-building process on my Documentation page in progress.
