I did a commission for Bombcollar a million years ago of this cutie pie named Mystery Meat and forgot to post it.
Then I was reminded and I forgot to post it again.
So I’m posting it right now before I forget yet again. look at this chubs monster pony baby.
just letting everyone know that i’m not dead. i’ve just been working a whole lot at crappy retail job and my soul hurts. when i’m at home i mostly focus on drawing for the anthology and relaxing so i’ve kind of taken myself off of tumblr for a bit to avoid human contact and things on my dash that make my brain angry.
hopefully i’ll have drawings for you soon.
before i do that i gotta rest for a while with some sleep and food and maybe play some more dragon game with my friend. dragon game is strangely addicting and now i want to write descriptions for Asima and her band of what are pretty much horrible gaudy witch dragons when i have the strength. I need to buy her boyfriend a flower crown. all my dragons need flower crowns.
i am an adult lady.
everyone please ignore me until i’ve had some sleep.
i’ve been thinking a lot about my glam dwarf lady that i drew and formulating all sorts of neato back-stories and stuff for her.
one idea i liked was a dwarven society that was more amazonian? like, everyone has this stereotypical view of dwarves as rough masculine warrior types with barley any females because if they’re above ground or working in the mines or traveling they wear heavy traditionally male clothing. in reality that just makes more sense than trying to shuffle around in ballgowns when you have short legs in a mine.
in reality, the majority of dwarves identify as female and at home they’re all more likely to wear traditionally feminine clothing because it’s easier and faster to make and wear a really nice dress that’s comfortable than try to cook dinner wearing 3 layers of armor. this does not mean that they aren’t a fierce warrior race who are renowned for drinking and fighting, they just know how to hem a skirt better than you do.
in fact, since their anatomy leans more towards wide shoulders and giant bear hands it is seen as a a mark of honor and self sufficiency to have neat, well-fitting clothes that you made yourself. even more so than armor because a bored 10 year old dwarf is strong enough to make a usable piece of metal to keep people from stabbing you. that is literally kindergarten stuff because not getting stabbed is very important. making sure you don’t sew the entire bottom of a skirt together because you were trying to hem it and you couldn’t see properly over your beard is way harder.
anyway, none of the fashion choices in dwarven culture have anything to do with gender and everything to do with common sense. that’s the important bit.
Anonymous asked: your art from ten years ago is just... wow
you asked for this.
you all asked for this.
ARE YOU READY FOR THE VERY WORST THING?
ART FROM 10 YEARS AGO:
everyone asking for old art please hear these words.
i don’t think you all understand. i am trying to protect you. i just went to the first page of my old deviantart gallery. from 2003.
there are so many dragons and angels and a goth Harry Potter with lyrics from a song from the Hellsing anime soundtrack sewn into his pants.
there are a lot of kawaii yaois.
there are a lot people.
do you really want to unleash this beast?
Anonymous asked: Hi!! i was wondering if maybe you could pull-up some of yr old art from a few years ago so i can see the difference in yr style?? i always think its so cool to see how artists' styles change over the years, and yrs is really unique!!
anon turn back. you have no idea what you’re asking for. that art is so bad anon. so bad.
hey peeps. can everyone do me a favor and stop messaging me and tagging my stuff with other people’s characters? like, it’s awkward to even ask this and i’m sure everyone means well, but after a while it becomes a little annoying when my inbox fills up with them. plus if someone is searching through the tag for that character i feel like it messes with their search? (not sure on that though. tumblr is mysterious)
i do enjoy every comment or tag anyone leaves on my art, it’s just weird when the majority of comments aren’t even really about the picture it’s just “this must be this thing! you know, the thing which probably has nothing to do with this thing but i see some similarities so it MUST be the thing”
and yes i have listened to Nightvale and read a lot of Terry Pratchett books. but i’ve been drawing weird stuff since kindergarten. and if i do fan art for those series you will know. because i will tag it. because i tag all my other fan art.
it just kind of saps all the fun out of drawing a thing when the majority of the feedback is about someone else’s thing you dig?
1: wonderful thought put into that name! though i don’t think anything referring to her hair would be apt because i’m preeeeety sure she dyes it haha.
2: i do love Terry Pratchett books and i’ve read then since i was just a little trash child (as you can probably tell by the fact that i have never drawn a dwarf lady without a beard), but i’ve never read that one. dang, beaten to the punch!
3: ohh that’s pretty. what does it mean?
4: a little too Pratchetty for my tastes. also, i figure she didn’t start off in life being this fabulous. you gotta work for that type of glitter.
5: that was my first thought too but again it felt a little too on-the-nose
6: DON’T TEMPT ME.
