Hand-making my own chocolates for Easter this year. Here’s a glimpse of my current creations!
The batman ones are chocolate and orange flavored, the tiny hearts have marshmallow centers, the large hearts have peanut butter in them and the eggs have coconut mixed in with the chocolate.

My favourite mechanical pencil broke today.
I am a little heart-broken, he died too young. Rest well my friend.

personal update of sorts

Sorry I haven’t been on social media much lately! ;w;
Things have been very stressful over the past few weeks and it reached a head yesterday evening when I was forced to call an ambulance because I collapsed and couldn’t breathe. (Nothing life-threatening, just an anxiety attack which caused me to hyperventilate and my hands to seize up.)

Taking steps to de-stress and not push myself so hard as that I have a repeat of last night. That includes taking more time to spend with friends to unwind and more walking.
Love you all.

anklewings:

proof that the comic book fandom is still hella sexist is when youre at a comic book convention & people will not buy prints of comic book women unless theyre blatantly & completely sexualized

it gets to the point where they will stop lookin through your portfolio halfway to question why you only have women but if you only have men no one cares

I actually have over the last few Cons had an experience that was the complete opposite and it really, really warmed my heart and inspired me to do more and lead by example with my depiction of female characters.

I’d have various people approaching me at my booth during the day and flip through my portfolios remarking on how ‘real’ and ‘natural’ my women looked, and how they liked that I drew my female superheroes seemed to be enjoying themselves and weren’t posed submissively in a sexual manner.

I even had one girl say to me, ‘there’s an artist over there, who has nice art but all of their women are posed in weird angles and they look kinda plastic-y. It’s nice to see someone not doing that for a change.’

One guy even requested a commission of Poison Ivy for his wife because she specifically requested a ‘non-sultry’ Posion Ivy. His wife wasn’t at the Convention, but after I arrived back home I had an email from the pair of them telling me how happy they were.

So yes, while I agree there are some people out there that just want to buy broke-back superheroine stuff - there are many people out there that won’t.

Finished my comic featuring Aric Jorgan and my Mirialan Trooper, Ballistray. Also, all this talk of Havoc Squad booty shorts had to be a thing that happened as well.
In my head-canon of Aric I see him enjoying things associated with kitties; milk, scratching behind the ears, belly rubs, etc. but he’s ashamed to admit them all so he sneaks into the ship’s mess at night and steals milk from the fridge. (I also imagine Aric doesn’t usually walk around the ship half naked, even at night but I couldn’t resist drawing his abs.)Unlettered version of the comic here.

Re-blogging a comic I drew and posted over on my Star Wars: the Old Republic blog. I’m keeping my random swtor fandomness and my art blog mostly separate, but will re-blog a lot of fan art and comics I create.I love making the male characters in this game so flustered.  83

Remember that digital painting I was working on back in December? Last week I’d nearly finished and it was deadline time - and my computer got a virus so I can’t access my files. I ended up just re-doing the entire thing with watercolors so I could have it done in time, here’s a w.i.p. shot.
I still don’t have Photoshop re-installed and am working with a bare minimum set-up.Ah well, they say we grow through adversity. (By the end of 2014 I’m going to be freaking Yggdrasil!)

I’m a firestarter, twisted firestarter,
you’re the firestarter, twisted firestarter.
I’m the self-inflicted, punk detonator.
Yeah, I’m the one invented, twisted animator.

… So maybe I’m trying to make Torchic seem more badass than they are.
Sketchbook cover all done. Hope my friend likes it!
