"Sweet Princess, no need to frown. We struck a deal remember? I get you in exchange that I don’t kill everyone in this castle. Don’t you think I’m a very generous man? I’m even going to tend those scratches I gave you. So wipe that frown off your pretty face, because you’re mine now."
Everyone. Everyone. I drew something again. Holy smokes. Two months of not being able to do anything and….finally!
Granted it’s a sketchy Jarida piece. A sketchy piece for the Pirate AU that I still love by Monkeysnortthern~
I wonder if I got worse….o__o;
Reference used so it made this go more smoothly.
Bah whatever. I actually got something drawn!
How’s it going Jarida fandom?
So I’m probably gonna start posting up any Jarida through my newly (barely used) account. I don’t know if this means I should move all my old Jarida drawings to the new account too. :/
Hmmm…what to do?
So Nice !
Long story short, my very very long break with Tumblr has been due to burn out (Even though I gotta work on projects in RL and I’m effin tired TAT) and my own clumsiness of not realizing how bad my health had gotten from so much stress.
Social media was not setting me up in a good mental place. Anxieties sky rocketing and plummeting self confidence were a recipe for disaster, so I decided to just stop caring about exposure and fandoms and all such random unneeded stress social media presented to me with my own noose.
And you know what? It worked.
Feeling much better.
So to new followers and to the ones still following. Thanks for being patient!
If you haven’t watched How To Train Your Dragon 2, you are sorely missing out on a gorgeously done movie.
Dreamworks really outdid themselves. Great cinematography. Amazing animation that was paired with a fantastic soundtrack.
And the emotions. Goodness the emotions.
They know how to pull out feelings from their viewers. Feeling euphoric, anticipation, contentment and sorrow in one movie?
No animation studio can move me emotionally like Dreamworks can and this movie is by far their best yet.

Holy shit, Anthony Weiner actually said something important.
Showing only Merida because I’m still working on how I want the shadows to fall on Hans. :]
I think I’m liking where my coloring technique is going. But then again, I’m still experimenting.
For those new to my blog, I posted a previous image with basic color on my personal blog. Here’s what the full image looks like:
I am going to finish this. I will. I WILL.
So here’s a recent work in progress screenshot that I posted up on my new art blog! Figure I’m gonna be a little better at updating with screencaps of what I’m up to between more ‘finished’ pieces.
Again, for any followers that followed me for my art (especially from the Jarida fandom), you can always follow me on my new account (click my new username at the top!). That’d be cool lol. :]
