Lone Survivors: Because the best thing to do late at night is draw characters from a horror game =p [though at least I remember how, after all my time off from drawing!]

Happy Discount Chocolate Day!

…the Terran calendar doesn’t exactly match up to any Earth calendar, but today’s the equivalent of Darian’s birthday, the cute widdle guy ^_^

Per a question on one of those “original character” memes, if we ever met in real life, I’m pretty sure he’d be creeped out by me, as much as I’d be apologizing for the life I wrote for him =p

Bendersona: Lifebender

So I’m late to the party and still pretty new to this Bending thing—sorry if this has been amply covered before.  From what I understand, it’s possible to refine “bending” to a more modern interpretation:

Earth = Solid [inorganic]
Water = Liquid
Air = Gas
Fire = Energy
[Void = Spirit]

As the show itself covers [YAY SPOILER feel free to stop reading if you’re even further behind than I am], the classical elements sometimes include Metal, which is simply refined Earth.  Sort-of covered is Wood, which enters the territory of organic material, which I presume is “unbendable” except by particularly powerful Benders who can overcome the organism’s own willpower [self-bending?].

What I took for this interpretation was the remainder of solids not covered by Earthbending: organic material no longer in control of itself [read: dead].  I did play with the idea of Woodbending, but that seems particularly limited compared to the other elements, even when expanding the definition to include all types of plant life—but, also, why limit it to plants?  Where would sponges lie?  Granted, many of the components of organic life are found in “earth”; dust is comprised of bits of insect bodies, hair, dead skin, etc., so perhaps it’s really just a refinement of Earthbending in the opposite direction.

Also, a pain to draw.  But I needed some practice drawing action stuff, so.

Anyway, I heard it was some kind of Witchsona Week, but given a lot of factors you aren’t really interested in hearing about, I [think I] followed the spirit of the law rather than the letter.  Whatever—you get a drawing!

Being a More ☼ CONFIDENT ☼ Artist: A Guide

I kinda want to illustrate this

nightingales:

Before we begin: being confident is not synonymous with turning into an ego driven delusional maniac, just as being humble is not synonymous with being self-deprecating and negative. Okay? Got it? Awesome.

Why should you care about being more confident? Ultimately you will feel better as an…

Cosplaying Dust

[actual conversation at MAGFest]

2014 January 5
Since I’m no longer the only Dust cosplayer, I naturally had to step up my game from last year, though this is still only ~80%(!) of what I was trying for before I ran out of time… would like to see some photos from the billion people who took them! [If you missed me, sorry—I’m not used to cosplaying just to be seen and got bored easily when I couldn’t find an open game in the arcade.]
This is also my first fursuit head, which ended up larger than expected [oops, forgetting to adjust for size] but was nevertheless very breathable. Most of the work went into Ahrah, though—particularly last-minute—which is still kinda heavy despite trying for the lightest build possible. I mean, have you ever carried a prop around a convention?? UGH
[I mean to do more photos since the others I have turned out mediocre, but that’ll have to wait until after MAGFest decompression… *dies*]
Edit: Found a few!
