I could've worked more on this, but.... meh... I kinda just wanted to get it over with, the coloring part I mean. I'm way more happy with how the lineart turned out, so I'll upload that after I've posted this one.
But still, I'm a little happy with this too

I felt like drawing myself again, just because I was out of inspiration and needed something to draw I know it looks rushed, and that's because it is rushed too But I hope you guys like it anyways
Oh, and some of you have asked about my chest tattoo and when it will be finished: I actually had it finished yesterday! I'll show you guys a photo when it's healed
I realize I'm starting to look a lot like Lillith now, so I was very tempted to draw a small Lillith in the background of this drawing where she points at me rather miffed, and goes "copycat!" XD Because, no, she's not my fursona. I created Lillith long ago so I'd have a cool female character to look up to, that's all.
I was in Lisbon last week with the school I work as a teacher at. Me and four other girls decided we wanted to go to a tattoo studio, because they wanted to get new tattoos. I wanted one as well, but I couldn't decide what to get or where to get it, so when we arrived there, I was curious about maybe getting my ears pierced. I've never had my ears pierced before, so I thought it would hurt like hell. Like, even more than getting tattooed on the chest So I talked to the guy who worked there, as I had loads of questions about piercings. He was kind enough to give me a whole ton of information, so when I finally decided to get my ear pierced, I felt totally safe with getting it done by that guy. I was nervous though, but all that info I got from him helped me relax a whole lot more. Everything was perfectly safe and sanitary, and I'm VERY happy I decided to get my ears pierced at that particular studio I got some dry ice sort of things applied to my earlobe before he pierced it, plus that the needles themselves had some painkilling stuff on them, so I really didn't feel much at all Nothing that I couldn't handle at least, it was just a bit nasty to feel and hear the needles go through XD But I was super happy with it all I've finally gotten my ear pierced! I purchased a pair of rings there too, so I might switch out the ones I have now with the rings after a month has passed and the wound has completely healed I really like these particular piercings though :3 they're both cool and cute, methinks. The piercing artist gave me these two included in the price, plus another shorter pair for free The rings I paid for, and all the jewelry/piercings I now have are of top quality surgical steel. What surprised me was the cost of it all though. Norway has some rather steep prices, but here in Lisbon I got the piercing job plus three pairs of jewelry for 65 euros! That's not expensive at all, really I'd expected a lot more considering the great service I got and all But yeah, I'm super happy with my new piercings and for getting them at Clockwork Tattoo Studio in Lisbon The four girls who I came along with, they each got a new tattoo, and they looked fantastic And they were all very brave, especially the two of them who'd never had any tattoos before Tomorrow, I'm going to Oslo to get some more work done on my wolf tattoo / chest piece. I'm gonna get the wings colored :3 So that'll be cool ^^ Well, gotta go. I'll talk to you guys later
So here it is My new chest tattoo! I'm super happy with how it looks the tattoo artist (here's a link to his facebook page: [link] ) did a fantastic job! And before you ask; yes, it was very painful. But then again, totally worth it! This was photographed by me on the second day I had the tattoo, so it's still in the healing process. I censored my breasts away, for obvious reasons (I don't want my breasts showing on the internet ), and I adjusted the colors a bit to make the photo look more like the colors on the tattoo - although the colors are, in real life, much more vibrant than this. The blue is actually a really pretty, ocean-blue cyan-ish color. Very tropical-looking We'll finish the wings this autumn, and I'm really looking forward to it But so far I just love the way this looks. When I first saw it in the mirror at the tattoo studio, I was just blown away by the details..! It's just incredible, methinks So, yes, as you can probably tell, I'm very, very proud of this tattoo ^___^ <3

some of you requested a photo of me and my new tattoo, so here it is Also, I know earlier, some of you were curious about my eye color, because I've previously drawn me with blue irises that have a yellow ring around the pupil. Someone asked me if I really had that yellow ring around my pupils, and here's evidence that I do You'll see it if you zoom in a bit And as you can see, I don't have blue hair anymore. All the bleaching almost destroyed my hair, so I dyed it back to my natural hair color (just a tiny bit darker ).
so, yesh, another selfie

------------EDIT------------ Wow, I've gotten a ton of positive feedback from you guys on this photo! *tears of joy* I would love to just take the day to thank every single one of you, but I'm just gonna be lazy and say it here: THANK YOU! I'm flattered and very happy that you guys think my eyes and myself are pretty and stuff <3 Honestly, that really means a lot to me And it's also really cool that you guys seem to love my tattoo that much! I love it too and so I want to credit the artist who tattooed it on me. Here's his facebook page: [link] He did a fantastic job, and I'm really proud of my tattoo Can't wait to see it finished! Which - if all goes as planned on my part - will most likely happen this August. But yeah, check out his facebook page loads of really great work in there
I've done something I think I've hardly ever done: an art collab! It was =Delta141 's idea, both the collab idea and what the drawing should be about. I just did the line art and he colored it, and I must say - he did an amazing job! I just love how the coloring looks!
The character on the left is his character, Ryder, whom I think some of you are familiar with He's comforting Spike here, being kind to him and telling him everything will be alright. In this drawing though, Ryder doesn't know exactly what Spike's going through. Had he known, I bet Charles would be in biiiiig trouble...
I found a drawing program through a post on Tumblr. It's called Mischief, and one of the many cool things about it is the ability to zoom times infinity without the lines getting pixellish...! I found it really fun to sketch with haven't tried coloring with it yet though. Here's a link to where you can get it: www.madewithmischief.com/downl…
But yeah, anyways... here's a sketch of Sam's classroom, during recess. This is from the later chapters that are about Sam and how he copes with things after Spike left. In this sketch though, he's blocking out the world through music (those are earbuds, not piercings, by the way ) and draws to focus on something else than all the things that are troubling him.
So, yeah, just a more casual scene I guess...
I hope you guys like it, even though it's just a sketch and the background isn't the best and stuff...

I was on Livestream just now, sketching and doodling, and then I started getting an idea for a new character. And with the help of the lovely people who watched me on Livestream, we found a name for her Delyth!
The plan for her is to sort of have her be Lillith's rival or something, but I don't want her to be an evil character though.
anyways. Here she is
