Come my love our world's would part The gods will guide us across the dark Come with me and be mine my love
Stay and break my heart From the shores through the ancient mist You bear the mark of my elven kiss Clear the way, I will take you home
To eternal bliss
I wanted to do a lighting study, and “Tir Na Nog” came on shuffle, so I made a quick painting based off the premise.
(The song is about a fairy asking their true love to come with them to the realm of fairies and stay forever, in case anyone hasn’t heard it)

Fun lingual fact of the day - words that are spelled the same but have different meanings are called homographs.

Working on a character -
presenting Ava! Beleaguered SCP employee who frequently wishes she was anywhere else on earth. Her girlfriend Mai doesn’t really understand what goes on at Ava’s work, but she’s supportive nonetheless.

Working on some worldbuilding and character designs. I wanted to challenge myself to make visually distinct characters, but they’re stuck wearing the same extremely fussy, over-detailed school uniform.
(Design thought process below)
Between these two and the other characters in the set I’m working on, the smaller variations typically come from how the character wears the uniform, what accessories they might add, hair, and shoes.
In this case, the more artistically inclined individual on the left has left their shirt untucked, they don’t wear the outer kirtle, and their scarf is absently tied in a simple knot.
On the right, the more analytical person on the right has made sure that every detail of their uniform is spic and span, the beret isn’t crooked and their shoes are neat.
With both, using a cool-warm color lean by using the same pair of colours helps to further the visual distinction while still showing that they’re wearing a uniform.

Warming up with some Star Trek Prodigy doodles. I can’t wait to see how these folks are written and characterized.

My mum’s birthday is tomorrow and I asked her what she wanted to do (as in, go eat at a restaurant, go to a museum, go shopping etc. I always treat mum on her birthday) and her answer was:
“Get my free starbucks and go through a car wash!”

I asked my Mum what she wanted for her birthday and she said “One of your paintings!” so I made her this, based on a pond down the way. I hope she loves it! I’m very happy with how the lighting turned out.

I did some loose sketches today, a small gaggle of magical beings. I want to flesh out these character designs more. I think my personal faves are the two Priestesses.

I’m so glad we have the character’s looks from ‘Star Trek Prodigy’ now, I’m definitely going to be drawing them a ton.
Gwyn is definitely my favorite so far.

I’m not sure if anyone else feels this way, or if it’s petty of me to think so, but I’m getting rather tired of those book titles that are like
“ The [insert profession]’s [Wife/Daughter]”
 I’m pretty sure the main character has more to their story than just being a wife or daughter, considering the book is about them.
Something about it comes across as defining the character based on their relationship with a dude as opposed to who they are as a character, along with boxing characters into little gender cubbies that just kind of rubs me the wrong way.
Maybe it’s petty but after finishing “The Hangman’s Daughter” and looking back at “A Coal Miner’s Bride” I’m much less inclined to pick up a book with that title formula if that’s what it’s going to be like.

I hit an art block this morning from when my SD card detached for some reason and I lost a lot of work. Kind of disheartened, so I shaded this room for right now.
