Recent Artwork

Now I'm not really an aspiring artist, just a (I'd like to think) relatively creative person who channels the soul sucking boredom of math into drawings. It started back in 6th grade when the only thing I could draw was a very questionable looking wolf and a surprisingly symmetrical flower. Gradually, I got better and I'd like to think nowadays, though I'm hardly an expert, I'm also not too shabby.

 Mostly, I stick to fanart because I know what the characters look like and can work with them, but occasionally I get a little spurt of originality. Normally, they're comic/cartoon/anime styled pieces because I'm just not very good at drawing realistic things. Trust me, I've tried. And even thinking about the pain that went into learning how to draw anatomically correct positions....well let's not dwell on that. So over this school year I've amassed a fairly decent pile of math class doodles and thought I ought to share some of my better ones with you guys.

Some of them were drawn with references, some solely from my brain.  A lot of these are actually unfinished, (Still in sketch form) but I normally color with sharpie, and occasionally chalk pastels. 

 

I'm catching up on Supernatural season 8 and have to say I think it's recovered greatly from the lackluster 7th season. But then again, Crowley is making more appearances, which is always a plus. Point in fact, Mark Sheppard is a fantastic actor and he plays the suave King of Hell wonderfully with his tailored suits and quick retorts. (But seriously, Sheppard seems to appear in everything I watch. Supernatural? Firefly? Doctor Who? I'm sensing a trend here) And how can you not root for a snarky villain who's first question to his adversaries when they pick up the phone is "What are you wearing?" followed by an "I'm sexting you an address,"? I nearly did a spit take at that.

Not to mention he leaves a little demon smiley by his texts...
I've also started Game of Thrones (I caved under the peer pressure) and I'm enjoying it a lot thus far.
As far as blogging goes, I've got an Etsy feature, some movie reviews, and more summer outfit posts headed your way. Also, an exciting piece of information I've been keeping to myself that I suppose you ought to know about ;)

  2. You ARE an artist, and artiste, even :). I always did my best artwork during math class. I love the eyes staring over the bowl.

    1. Again with the flattering! XD Actually, that's some weird abstract picture of L from Deathnote. He has a very crooked and disproportionate teacup (Something I didn't notice until AFTER I colored it of course) and his eyes are so big because that's what always stands out on him to me ^^

    1. Joker is one of the things I draw on a regular basis because his expressions are so fun ^^ And thank you so much! :D Unfortunately I was nominated and did this a while back, so I don't think I'll do it again. But really, that makes me very happy :)
