Oj: "Onward! Into the white, frosty fluff of adventure!"
---- What's this? A spare moment to upload art?! Egad! OwO;
Yes, it's true. Despite hellacious amounts of butt-on-fire business over the last few weeks, I have indeed found a moment to do something artistic. Thank god.
Sadly, our snow has long gone, so this pic is already a bit dated, but that's okay. It's the thought that counts. ^w^
Anyway, this was how I envisioned sledding with my elderly corgi, Beau. Since his back legs don't work so well anymore, but he still loves to go outside, I bought a sled and out we went to play in the glorious winter white.
However, my plan fell to pieces almost immediately. Beau, it seems, did not like the thought of sitting placidly on the sled while I pulled him around. He thought sledding was for sissies and playing frisbee, by jamming the sled in his mouth and hobbling away with it, was a much, much better game!
So there went that plan. But we still had a lot of fun together, oh yes, indeed! I even eventually got Beau to go down the little hill in our front yard on the sled with me a few times and that sealed it. He's is now a certified speed demon! 8D
While he's learned to appreciate the finer points of zooming down hills, romping with the giant "frisbee" is still Beau's favorite winter game. ^w^
Not really my sign, but it was for a greeting card assignment with horoscopes as the theme. This is the best one that i made, The others are still works in progress though i know i won't like them as much as I like this one. Completely done in colored pencil, and then simply scanned... yes, SCANNED!! I got my hands on a scanner at Uni! woohoo! Yes i know the fish tail is crap. I didn't know how to color it or what to do with it, so it turned out like that. crap crap crap. But believe it or no it's the bet out of this little trio.
When I drew this, I was feeling very upset. It's been hard settling into this new place and I don't get to be around my friends much. I miss what I took for granted. I drew myself with my fursona's features. It's not something I put much thought into, but can't help but love it. From an artist's and personal perspective I feel this picture is what I wanted it to be.
