Ask me anything   you are who you choose to be — you choose —

Another practice run. 
I get the feeling that I’m going to need to change him a lot before I’m happy with his design. So, if his antlers, mask, and clothing keep changing that’ll be why. Honestly, right now he looks like Iron Man took out a reindeer and farted fireflies…. or something. I may have just ruined my own image. (╥﹏╥)  
Anyways. His name is Iolyn, and he is a self-appointed forest guardian. Known to misguided humans as: the king of the forest, the demon, the monster, or the creepy guy who lives in the woods.
He’s actually quite nice though, I think.

A new month and a new character. Just a rough attempt to get my ideas down. More to come in the future…

Practice, practice, practicing!
A new character. It’s kind of like a fresh journal page… ♥
[[ I’ve decided to issue a challenge to myself and try to stick with one character for a month or so. I intend to illustrate her in multiple styles/ways so that I can practice and explore. I’m pretty sure that’s what normal people already do with their characters anyways… We’ll see if I have that much focus and patience. I tend to get bored pretty quickly. =^-^= ]]
Her name is Ariana. Ari for short. That’s all I’ve got for now.

♥ paper doll ♥

well sort of. she has no hair or face yet, and we won’t even talk about the shape her limbs are in….

but, i’m mainly using the base for something to experiment with and place clothes over so hopefully that’s not too distracting. i’ll keep fixing her up a bit and hopefully post the base and some outfits at a later point.

=^-^=

queen of the rock. (in progress)

just an idea floating around in my head of a self-designated pirate queen. it still needs a lot of work, but i like to keep a record of where things came from. that way when i look back i can say “wow, it’s come a long way,” (or maybe just “shoot, i should have kept it like that….”)

An Invitation by Shel Silverstein
If you are a dreamer, come in.If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer …If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire,For we have some flax golden tales to spin.Come in!Come in!

[Learning how to make and use brushes… ish. Please forgive the butchery. ;) ]

Come in!
Come in!
