I'm feeling pretty uptight right now. Got a lot of stuff I should be doing, (like compiling a portfolio for my Fine Arts Academy application. Tedious. DX) But don't you know it, I never update this blog unless there is something else I should /really/ be doing. Bah.
I scribbled this piece up rather quickly. It was almost completed within an hour. Then I spent a day looking at it before adding a couple of final touches. I like it a lot actually, but I really need to look into getting some real pencils. Need to branch out from just using .5 mechanical, oy. It's great for lineart, but this sort of picture needs a little something more. I'll work on that.
This was actually pretty random. It just popped into my head and wouldn't leave me alone, so I let it out. I might make more stuff like this, it was a lot of fun. Got my fingers pretty dang dirty though.
I'll try to update a little more regularly, sorry.

It was a lovely birthday. I got a new bike, some lovely jewelry, some really cute Keds and a stuffed Spyro that looks like a little troll. (Love 'im.)
Now I need to get my hands on the new game and hope it isn't horrid. :D

This piece was done for an art contest in one of the galleries I hang about. The subject was Global Warming and the effect it might have on the events of TLK and such. I have heard rumours of an ice age being the result of GW, so I decided to make Simba and Nala Smilodons and threw in some mammoths for the IJCWTBK number. The mammoths irk me, I feel that if I had just taken the time to line them by hand I might have been able to color them better. Still, I rather like the background and Simba and Nala came out satisfying....ly.
School is not a very jolly good time. Still, things are looking better than they did Sophomore year....not that that is saying much....

Well. I'm back from the Mediterranean at last. Because I like to have a sort of theme in my uploads, I have decided to round up my most recent dragon sketches that are currently WIPs. Hopefully they'll get completed, but that's unlikely.
This was originally going to be a random one-shot character but my sister convinced me to flesh her out a bit and actually...make an effort with her background or something. So I have decided that she is an evil queen, and it seems she has abducted an egg or summat. Poor egg.
This is Balor. Or at least that is what I'm going to call him for now. Yes, he has a pet bat. He has a kindly disposition, even though he spends much of his time studying the dark arts. He uses this knowledge for good and treads the line carefully, making sure he doesn't get so deep into his work that it corrupts him. Yay.
...Perhaps I should look into getting an EpiPen.

Carried away by a moonlight shadow
Sing a song of sorrow and grieving
Carried away by a moonlight shadow."

I've always liked mermaids, but I find myself drawing them with more dolphin-like tails than fish. So, here are some....dolphin-maids. Colorful dolphin-maids.
I like how the pink one came out...
The second picture is one I completed a day or two ago for an art trade with a very talented online artist. There are two parts to the trade, and this is what I made her in exchange for a lovely character design, (link below the picture. His name is still a WIP.) The species depicted is one that she made up, called "Imperial Lionesses," which is also the species of the character she made for me.
Things are finally starting to get organized, thanks to Tigrin, Simbachu and Killress of the 'Mud.' Thanks guys! <3

Well, I figure I might as well start off my first day with a bang, so here is one of my art pieces that I am rather pleased with.
The character depicted is my main fursona, Vilra, (for those of you who don't frequent art sites, a fursona is an animal you use to represent yourself.) Usually she has brown fur and such, but the color green was better in this situation for obvious reasons I think.
This was one of the first pieces where I heavily implemented the more "painty" style of digital coloring, but more followed and I'm certain they will continue to do so.
