more Korra!!!!!!! 
I saw this interesting ink/marker drawing and it inspired me to do a thing. This is ink lines with watercolors.

I seem to not be dealing well with the emotional aftermath of watching Legend of Korra book 3.

In regards to requests, I’ve had some for multiple characters.

It’s just not going to happen. Please stop asking.

Couples, eh, maybe if I feel up to it/have time. But more than that? There’s not a chance. Seriously kiddos, stop.

anon asked for Makoto Tachibana. The only character I could even stand from Free!
You should know I hate the anime Free! because as a female swimmer, I’m mad there aren’t girl swimmers. Especially when a friend said that the manga had a girl swimmer in the swim club. Also I hate yaoi-bait.

Anonymous asked: If you are still doing requests can you do Makoto Tachibana in realistic form?? Pls!! Love your art!!

By realistic you mean the way that I draw things, right? You better mean the way that I draw things/however I feel like drawing him.

Because that’s exactly how I drew him.

My computer charger arrived! So there will once again be updates. Though, they’ll be sporadic.

Thanks for sticking with me. :)

Things to know about this blog/me

With a sudden influx of followers (thanks guys!!) I thought maybe I should sort of say hello and mention a few things.

  1. I draw whatever I want to draw. Occasionally I’ll say you can make requests. Whether I actually draw them or not is another story. If you make a big request, you’re sol. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
  2. I reserve the right to be as snarky, sassy, and sarcastic as I please. You’ve been warned. Oh, and I might occasionally troll you.
  3. I like hearing from you. Unless you have mean things to say. Then please just say them aloud to yourself while looking at my art or a picture of me or something. Just don’t type them out. I put up with enough rude people at work and don’t want to come home to it too.
  4. If I start/stop drawing whatever it is that you want, please don’t get mad at me for it. Like I said before, I draw what I want. Not what you want.
  5. Updates happen when I have time to draw and time to scan things in and prep them for you lovelies. Now that I’ve caught up and posted everything in my sketchbooks, updates are going to be less frequent. Please be patient with me. I’m (unfortunately) an adult will bills I have to pay (and therefore must earn money to pay) and don’t always have a lot of time to dedicate to my hobbies. Like art.
  6. I take commissions! While as an artist I have the right to deny commissions should I really not want to draw a certain thing (porn mostly, but the list is pretty long) you are always welcome to ask. I don’t have set prices, as everything for me is very much “negotiate for each individual job based on materials and time invested estimates”.
  7. I am super thankful and overwhelmed by all the notes and followers. I hope you like following me and seeing my sketches, whatever they are this time.
  8. Also I like drawing book characters, if that wasn’t obvious enough already.
  9. Lastly, you should follow heidiblack if you aren’t already. She has taught me a great deal and is always teaching me some new trick with my art. I mean, yeah, that’s what sisters do, but seriously, she’s amazing.
  10. My favorite color is blue, I wish I was fluent in German, I love Joe Wright films, and I hate airplanes.
Anon asked for the “Athena cabin” so I drew you the Athena cabin.

This is partly me trolling you and being sassy and part what my brain said when I initially read the request. This is what working long hours does to my brain.

Also I can’t draw buildings. I’m sorry.

PS I’ll draw the Athenian children when I’m not working.

Forced hiatus

For two reasons, you won’t be getting drawings from me for a while.

1) I’ve caught up to myself and haven’t drawn anything new yet. I don’t draw every day.

2) the power cord on my computer went out so…. No computer for a few days until my new chord arrives. Obviously I can’t scan things on my phone.

Be patient with me!

more Annabeth. I wanted to draw her being a total tomboy, 90s style.

Katara! Thinking about making this a digital sketch along with the one of Korra. 
I recently watched all of Avatar: The Last Airbender and let’s face it, I love that series. A lot. A lot a lot. I want more. Like infinite new seasons of it.

I have a billion unfinished pieces, and I think they fit kind of well on my sketch blog.
Ron Weasley from Deathly Hallows Pt 1. Maybe someday I’ll finish this (I tell myself this constantly). My real holdup on this one? He’s wearing a plaid shirt and I will procrastinate like crazy when patterns are involved.

this is what I’ve been avoiding working on. Guess I should get going on it even though his face is going to be the death of me.
