I completely forgot to post this, and in case the person this is based off of see's this, i'm sorry girl but when you do things like you do, expect consequences. Especially if an animation student knows you.

I'm not going to get into details but thank you to a friend for finding the below image, it describes a lot.


Here, have a battle Santa.


Honestly though, Christmas is coming and I really really need to start on gifts. I also want to colour this drawing in Photoshop but I don't know if I can get it done in time for Christmas. We'll see!

Also have Sheridan internet. It's a slow, fat monster that is unreliable and has such bad vision that even if you activated your laptop a week ago, it requires you to do it again and maybe a couple more times for extra measure. Once you've been acquainted though then usually your relationship with Sheridan internet is good and friendly.

And since i'm in the gift of giving, have a cool cat, an awkward dog, and an even more awkward animal that had a dip into a radioactive bath.

Animals, Dragons, and Chiefs oh my!

Here are some fun doodles from my sketchbook.

Below are some random animal drawings. The corgi's are from google image search, and the two bottom right horses are from a dream I had one night.

Below are some fun giraffe drawings

And some dragons as well as Toothless, oh and Master Chief


Here, have some faces.


You know,  today I was really irked.
Maybe irked isn't the right word, let me try that again...
Today I was really saddened.

To be honest, it's been happening a lot lately. Just seeing other peoples work makes me wish I could be them. The thing is, my skills are with animals, not humans, and as a result I don't think my artwork is appreciated as much. It's disappointing really.

I remember last year, a student in my class (i'm not going to give names) came up to me and said "do you just draw dragons?" and while some people may shrug it off and say whatever, I couldn't. I barely draw my most favourite creature anymore because again, I feel like it can't be appreciated, I feel like it's looked down upon if you can't draw a human being as strong as anyone else.

I understand the only way to get better is to practice and over time I will get better, maybe even surpass those I idolize, but in the meantime, it's a hard battle.  I'm not asking to be showered with compliments, I just don't want to be forgotten as "that girl who drew animals." 

I have to say though, Shimo in our class made my week last week because she complimented my Royal drawings <3 made me feel really good about my art for once.

Screw it. Have a drawing of Mike and I riding a dragon. ACCEPT IT.

I Love You

So we were given a choice for a conflict with a resolution and our class voted our conflict to be I love you, and the resolution rejection! or find another love. I went with the generic idea of love birds, i'll let my beat boards tell you the rest of my generic story.
I honestly do not know how to think outside the box.

Interior Painting

So we had to do an interior painting! I wanted to do a beautiful living room with exposed dark stained trusses and hardwood floors with a stone fireplace... *sigh* oh I must stop thinking of my dream home. I tried my best to draw out the floor plan and try to map it out in perspective but it just wasn't working for me that day, so I decided to paint the interior of a lung with emphysema > Info
I was painting in a low light room while watching Lost with Mike (my bf in case some of you have no idea who he is!) so when I looked at it the next day, the two infected bronchi closest to us was no where near as dark as I thought they were. We have the time to adjust the painting in Photoshop, which is something I don't like to rely on but I have other things to work on so in the meantime it'll have to do. 

Woohoo for crooked painting!... :(
