There must be some kind of way outta here..., 4/22/2021
The 2nd COVID vaccine “after” is finally fading away. I am not surprised at all that I had a bad time, it seemed to hit all of my FMS trigger points, it also irritated the damaged nerve from when I had shingles, the sciatic nerve in both hips were also jabbing alternately. I just spent most of the week on the couch wrapped in a heated blanket, drinking copious amounts of water, eating soup (egg drop soup was especially easy to manage), and napping when I needed to tip over. I was very restless through a lot of it, anxiety mostly. I did do some database work for the day job (I to love my job) it was good to stay connected rather than feeling crappy and being alone. Still a few jabs here and there, a little buzzy headed while doing the barn chores early this morning, but no fever, that’s good. I’ve been over 24 hours without one, so that’s good news. Taking it easy.

WWWWWWeelcome back wombats!
Last night I decided to take a minor break from the screen and desk for the sake of my eyes and back so it was back to the good old sketchbook and pencil for me. Fun treat time though, my beloveds asked me to draw their fursonas as commission practice. I'm still going to do full digital tenders of them either later tonight or tomorrow, but I wanted to sketch out my ideas and reference material first, so you guys get to see some of the planning and background stuff that goes into my drawings.
First off, is my male partner, David's, brown bear fursona by the same name. That was a special treat for me to do bcuz he actually isn't a part of the furry community- I got to draw his first fur! (Fun fact: I've always privately thought of him as a bear anyway, so when he told me he wanted a grizzly I couldn't help but giggle to myself)
The second furry, a gnc fem. presenting fennec fox by the name of Calia, belongs to my nonbinary beloved, Danni. They've had this fursona for years now, much longer than I've known them, but this is only my second time drawing Calia for them. Getting the shape of the fox's head down was a little tricky at first because fox skulls have a diamond base shape - not a circle/oval like most animals- but I think she/they came out pretty alright, and I'm looking forward to digitizing them both into fully realized characters.

Another freak for the Frecosystem. Muckamucks are the largest freaks - the leviathans to the obeast’s behemoth - and reside in brine lakes and quicksilver rivers and other bodies of fluid. They are very slow and mindlessly consume anything that gets close to their maw; as you can’t enter their native environment, however, their broad backs also make for useful platforms, if you can lure them into a convenient space.
This version is a mixture of trilobite and megamouth shark, but there were earlier drafts based on sea turtles and mudskippers and I slightly regret that they didn’t work out.
