Finally finished a commissioned painting- this took _hours_. I get asked to draw people’s characters occasionally, but this was the first time I got to paint someone’s LARP character, and I fully enjoyed it! It straddled the weird line between painting a real portrait and drawing from the imagination. Anywho, I’m sure next month or so there’ll be another of these because it’s part of a larger set :P
This young lady is my Earl in LARP, btw, so I imagine my own character has committed some grave offense by doing this.
I’m always in the mood to draw snarky, evil businessmen (but never in the mood to learn lettering).
It’s been a while! Thought I’d update with a couple of sketches done in between work and stuff, to prove that I’m a person who still does things. All OCs, and I really need to learn not to same-face so much. Also two blonde men with glasses in one post? Probably need to learn how to diversify too, or people might start thinking I have a fetish.
In other news, I played dress-up! I’m bad at designing clothing (and dressing myself) so I had a go at designing some outfits. I think it helped :D I love seams.
Great Barrier Reef authorities have just said YES to coal port companies dumping dredge waste inside this World Heritage Area — all to make way a coal ship superhighway through our Reef. Reblog if this outrageous decision does not represent you. This is a massive disappointment, but we cannot give up hope. Sign up here to make our movement bigger than ever and keep up the fight to #SaveTheReef: http://www.SaveTheReef.org.au
Please Sign the petition guys. So many creatures will be decreased dramatically or even become endangered if we don’t stop it. Also watch the video. It really gave an insight into what would happen if this went ahead.
like dugongs. they’re mad important and live on the reef
Hey, so GetUp! is deciding to take legal action against this travesty, and you can donate to their kick starter here
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority has caved to the pressure of the mining industry and the Federal Government. The agency charged with "the protection, wise use, understanding and enjoyment of the Great Barrier Reef in perpetuity" has allowed it to be sold out for short-term profits.
Late yesterday, they granted a permit to dump five million tonnes of dredge spoil inside the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
This destructive project is now allowed to go-ahead - unless we make a last ditch effort to challenge it in court. Click here to learn more, and help fund the legal challenge to save our Reef:

WHY DOES THIS NOT HAVE MORE NOTES?? THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!!
This is totally inappropriate for an art blog and I _never_ do this normally, but this freaks me out and it’s late at night so if any followers want to lend a hand to any of these links please do. Sorry for the intrusion otherwise :( I’ll now return to what you followed me for.
Another speedpaint! He had glasses originally but screw that noise, I got shit to do. Definitely prefer this one’s to yesterday’s (yay for learning!) but I feel like I’ve not really done his personality justice. He’s supposed to be an incredibly lovely and friendly person but he looks kind of like a member of the evil team in every sports movie ever.
Oh well! That’s something to solve another day :D.
Late-night painting practice of a roleplay character who is a delightful smorgasbord of medical problems and just delightful in general. My hand really hurts and I need to remember to calibrate my laptop’s colour display because it is seriously different from every other computer on the planet.
Especially with bright reds. Fantastic, right? Anyway, I’m gonna Irish up some coffee and toast in the New Year for the third night in a row~
I haven’t posted anything with Foster in a while, so I thought why not now? He’s talking about his childhood doing pageants… in that nebulous 1901-1920 time when he’s supposed to have been a kid. A real writer would have actually researched these things, but all I know is that the first child beauty pageant was in 1927 so I’VE ALREADY FUCKED UP.
After doing the last Monster Challenge picture I had time to do one of those awesome screenshot redraws… but then it took ages to finish and I have now fallen behind on the challenge. I’ll catch up though!
Digimon Adventures is still my all-time favourite cartoon and Tai is my favourite fictional character for reasons I cannot possibly figure out. He’s just adorable. So when I was twelve this scene just killed me and I figured it was time to pay it proper attention now that I’m all grown up and can do things. I could write an entire essay on how much I love this show and why, and maybe some day I will do just that, but for now I’ll just say that every character had some major screw-up in their background that just made them really lovable.
It’s probably better to see this full-viewed. Also fuck backgrounds.
30 Day Monster Boy Challenge number 4 was any sort of human-taur thing :D so I made a Cameltaur. Super clumsy name, but there’s not really another way of naming him unless I name him after a camel-herding tribe which seems a little non-PC. But I did learn the etymology of centaurs, which is a neat thing to know, and how to park a camel (you tie one leg so its bent in midair, so the camel can’t move).
Now I really want to design a world where all the beasts of burden are taurs but no time! Tomorrow is vampires.
Promise I’ll try to do a more manly monster boy tomorrow, I’ve just been on an unlucky femme kick ever since I started this challenge.
