I waited for something, and something died
So I waited for nothing, and nothing arrived

It's our dearest ally, it's our closest friend
It's our darkest blackout, it's our final end

My dear sweet nothing, let's start anew
From here on in is just me and you

After an incident a few days ago, I was hesitant about getting the colour pencils back out. But I was able to put grief aside for long enough to some do more weird pencil art :D I apologise if the colours appear slightly sickly; I was feeling experimental. But at least I'm finally able to upload this! I have a few non-IZ drawings I'm working on currently, so brace yourselves for a big pencil spree...

I'll consider this a lament for my last mutilated picture. And I dunno... it's kinda loosely inspired from a dream I had. Meh.

"Look Zim. They're so blinded from the artificial light they can't see anything beyond, not even the moon and stars..."

"Hmm yes, yes. Carry on, Dib-thing." *contemplates how best to remove Dib's tongue*

EDIT (8/4/14): EternallyOptimistic, thank you very much for pointing out the origin of the lyrics! :)

EDIT: Jesus, I logged on to 45 messages this morning. That's the most I've ever had! :o :squee: Gahh... I think I'm hyperventilating... Thank you!!


I don't know where those mysterious words came from, or who wrote them in chalk on the desk divider thingy at school. But damn they're inspiring. :iconimragingplz:
Sorry, owner of words, I mean no disrespect by using your wonderful quote. ^^;

Except I put them in the wrong order; you have to read from the bottom up. Just like the picture, I guess XD

I suppose this could be either ZADF or ZADR. It looks more ZADF to me, but meh. :shrug:

I feel like there's too much colour in the background, plus I failed at the word placement. There's also a few other mistakes which I may fix later.

If you're here to criticise or flame the pairing, please kindly get lost. Everyone else, enjoy :)

I've read my share of tearjerking ZADR fics, but I haven't found one that actually made me cry. :icongayliens:'s fic A Thousand Years managed it. Her story needs more reviews; it's brilliant. And heart-wrenchingly sad...

Tried to make Zim look aged; and I meant to make the background look faded while Zim, Dib and the flowers were in colour. Failed. Plus I was too lazy to draw Zim's other arm... ah well. Enjoy.

And yes, I stole the lyrics from Connie Francis :B

Time Taken: About four hours
Layers: 11

A friend watched me draw some of this :meow:

Poor Dib.

Was too lazy to continue this; I suppose you could call it incomplete -_-

Le result of me playing too much Slender. You just keep staring at that note, Dib. Don't look or it takes you.
I guess this is... well, I was walking along staring at the sky cus I had my torch off, and then Slendy teleports in front of me. Like right in front of me. I was looking up into his...face?... and there were tentacles extending from his back... urgh. I was frozen in terror for a full three seconds :/
That light seems to be coming from... nowhere.

Music inspiration: A whole buncha horror soundtracks which shall scar me for life.

I was unhappy with the realisation that after a year, there was still no Tak or MiMi in my gallery. It needed to be fixed. XD
Drawn from memory, so please excuse any modifications or errors you may find (I'm already aware I forgot the mark under her eye). ^^; Her cape looks extra long anyways.
MiMi was the harder one to draw. :iconlooolplz:

All Invader Zim characters belong to Jhonen.

Drawn on paper (duh), cleaned up in Gimp.

Alternately, I could have titled this 'There Was Snow But That Suspicious-Looking Moon Came Out And Melted It All So Now Water Is Seeping Gradually Into My Clothes Also I Think That Bird Is About To Take A Dump On My Head WTF Is Up With This Damned Planet adhjsdhdjfk' but reasons prevailed.

This style is getting kind of old, I think, but can't deny any inspiration that comes from dreams. ^^; Or freaky yellow dream-moons, at least.

I can see how I could have improved this, but ink pencils sadly don't have the forgivingness of digital media programs XD (those can be pretty ghastly too, of course). I've needed a long break from digital image work. I got enough of it trying to edit the two halves of this picture that had to come through the scanner one by one X(

Zim has an unexplained trench coat. Because of further reasons.

Needed a vent just now. Here it is.

I hate feeling like a disappointment. >.<

How can we let this happen and
Just keep our eyes closed ‘till the end

The only thing that counts is the prosperity of today
Most important to us is that our bills get paid

Our good intentions have always been delayed

How can we let this happen and
Just keep our eyes closed ‘till the end
When we will stand in front of heaven’s gate,
It will be too late!

Try to unlearn all that you’ve learned
Try to listen to your heart
No, we can’t understand the universe
By just using our minds
We are so afraid of all the things unknown

A must we appease is the lust to get laid
Nothing really matters, just devouring our prey

Our good intentions have always been delayed, so
Our generous acts have always come too late

How can we let this happen and
Just keep our eyes closed ‘till the end
When we will stand in front of heaven’s gate,
It will be too late!

Try to unlearn all that you’ve learned
Try to listen to your heart
No, we can’t understand the universe
By just using our minds
We are so afraid of all the things unknown
We just flee into a dream that never comes true

Low to the ground, we feel safe
Low to the ground, we feel brave

Oblivisci tempta quod didiscisti

Open your eyes, we’re not in paradise
How can’t you see, this stress is killing me!
Fulfil your dreams, life is not what it seems to be
We have captured time
So time made us all hostages without mercy

Seemingly generous fooling ourselves
Selfishly venomous time tells

Too much thinking goes at the cost of all our intuition
Our thoughts create reality
But we neglect to be!
So we’re already slaves of our artificial world
We shouldn’t try to control life
But listen to the laws of nature

Open your eyes, we’re not in paradise
How can’t you see, this stress is killing me!
Fulfil your dreams, life is not what it seems to be
We have captured time
So time made us all hostages without mercy

Low to the ground, we feel safe
Low to the ground, we feel brave

We all think we’re generous
But we only fool ourselves
The only thing that matters is
Our way and our vision

Selfishly we’re venomous
But you know the time tells us
There is more to life than our
Higher positions, race for perfection
Better, faster
We must return to the laws of the nature
Free ourselves from madness!

Well I'd decided recently I was going to upload some pencil art. But I had this old favourite song sitting unloved in my library, and when I finally learned the lyrics I needed to draw to them. :D

Anyways. I'm quite happy with this, though it doesn't have quite the effect I'd hoped for XD. The concept was simple enough, but the atmosphere was difficult to create. I still like the eclipse thing, though~
Enjoy the weirdness, anyways XD
Oh, and that tower in the background is based on an actual tower. :P

Time taken: About 6-7 hours. I dunno, I got distracted XD

I streamed a little of this and :iconpat-the-kitsune: watched. Much fun was had >3

Why, brain. Why...


I shouldn't be allowed to make crossovers. :iconimragingplz: I don't even tend to enjoy them.
Even if it looks too much like the other one, this crap is addictive to draw >.<


Messed around with the colours here. Turned out awful. C:
