Happy summer, y'all! ^^ 

So I just got a brand-new Lenovo Yoga 920 to replace my 5-year-old HP laptop (which just happened to commit suicide right after I bought the replacement), and I'm absolutely thrilled that this laptop can also be converted into a tablet. Drawing digitally is so much easier now!! :D 

...But guess what? Coloring still sucks. :/ 

Even with the better hardware, coloring this last BotW Zelda picture still took me a week. I just don't have the software (or the skills, for that matter) to color more efficiently, so just one picture requires almost undivided attention for several days straight. So despite the decent results I'm getting, coloring just sucks the fun out of the whole thing. 

I do love sketching and linearting, though, so I was wondering: would anyone be interested in collaborating with me? I could do the lineart, and y'all could do the coloring. I love it when different artists combine their talents into one picture, so I think it would be a fun experience! 

If you're interested in this proposition, feel free to comment below or note me on what kind of picture you'd be interested in, and I'll take it under consideration! Just keep this in mind: I primarily draw people. Animals/anthros are basically uncharted territory for me, so the results probably won't be to your liking. 

Here are some examples of my lineart:

Hello!

My name is Meredith, I'm 23 years old, and I just graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology from one of the University of California campuses (not telling which one)! I'm a pretty good writer, decent actress, amateur filmmaker, occasional songwriter, and average artist. I'm a lover of pretty much every art form, from drawing to music to writing to film. I plan to someday master as many art forms as I possibly can, in whatever ways I can.

Collab: Choose Your Path
My half of a collab with MelodyJjJ. She's a fan of Undertale, so I decided to try something a little different.

Marked it as "Mature Content" due to the blood (even though it's not colored) and Chara flipping the bird. 

If anyone else feels like coloring this, feel free!

Hullo TeLinkfan1, long time no talk! Hi! 

Let me just start out by saying...I feel like an absolute jerk. :( (Sad) 

You were so kind to me a while back, drawing a beautiful picture of my friend's character Paisley...and then I never returned the favor. That was around the time that my father passed away and I went on dA hiatus due to studying abroad in Japan, but still...no excuse. Lonely 

But now I'm more confident in my art, and I finally found the time to repay your kindness by drawing your cute little critter Salem! I love the way you designed this guy...I'm not sure how the aetholith race works, since Tharene deleted her information on it, but I really wanted to draw him practicing his water magic! (Waterbending from A:TLA is what came to mind, honestly)

Anyway, I'm sorry this took me so long, and I'm sorry I suck at backgrounds and water. x.x

Beyond that, I hope you like! I am a dummy! 

Oh, and happy belated birthday. I hope it was a good one~ ;)

Corigan Kiddies
Hey Icy-Snowflakes, I fell into a parallel universe and met some really weird kids... Shrug 

In light of recent revelations in the Stray Siren comic, I'd like to introduce Skye and Nereus, my interpretation of what Coral's children would be like in the alternate universe where she evolves on schedule and marries her best friend Gilligan. 

Here are the short little stories I came up with for them: 

Contrary to appearances, Skye is actually ten years Nereus's junior. She is incredibly beautiful, even by Siren standards (though my picture doesn't do justice to what I imagined XD), and so she is highly regarded in her clan as the epitome of the "ideal" Siren, especially when you factor in the enviable social status of her parents. To keep herself in the good graces of her community, she plays the part eagerly, acting very flirty and outgoing on a regular basis. 

However, she is not at all what she seems. Deep down, Skye is an inquisitive, intellectual introvert with a fascination with archaeology, especially as it pertains to the human world. She finds the Siren ways to be too cramped and stifling (it doesn't help that she's socially awkward and shy) and wants nothing more than to take off on a solo journey through the open ocean, exploring sunken ships, collecting artifacts, and researching the strange ways of the humans (she doesn't actually have any desire to visit the human world, though, as she is highly superstitious and believes wholeheartedly in the sea foam tale).

Unfortunately, her desire to live up to her clan's expectations, as well as her fear of ostracization, prevents her from setting out on her own and fulfilling her dreams. Skye tries desperately to keep her conflicting emotions at bay, but to put it bluntly, she's reeeeeally bad at it. XD She has a hair-trigger temper and acts like a raging drama queen much of the time, which means that she has rather frequent (but incredibly bloody) rampages that last for short bursts of time. 

Poor girl...if only she had someone to talk to who truly understood her....oh wait! There is ONE person:

Nereus, Skye's older brother and BFF, was born with the Siren equivalent of achondroplasia, caused by a genetic mutation that occurred early in his development. Therefore, although he has a normal-sized torso, his limbs are proportionately shorter; on land, he would look like a typical dwarf, only reaching a height of 4 feet tall. 

But the boy never let his physical limitations slow him down. Evolving right on time with the rest of his peers, Nereus grew into a robust, athletic hunk with strong leadership skills, charisma, a wicked sense of humor, and a gentle spirit. He loves animals and spends much of his time doing conservation work: rescuing injured sea creatures and nursing them back to health, cleaning up human trash from the ocean floor, and generally making sure that the water is clean. But much to his mother's chagrin, in his early adulthood Nereus becomes a bit of a shameless thrill-seeker and takes up the extreme sport of "shark wrangling," which involves "taming" wild sharks by wrestling and subduing them. It's an incredibly dangerous sport, but hey, he's not dead yet, so why not seize the moment? I am a dummy! 

But Nereus' true passion is music. He was blessed with a gorgeous singing voice and greatly enjoys swimming to the surface and listening to the humans sing as they pass by in their ships. 

His even temper serves as a good buffer against his sister's mood swings, and he rarely finds himself in situations that would lead to a rampage. But when you DO anger him enough...oh geez, watch out, you've awakened a sleeping volcanic giant. Fear 

-Fun Fact #1: It's a complete mystery where Skye inherited her wavy hair. Nereus' is a little more straight-forward: his is a mixture of Coral's and Sylphi's. 

-Fun Fact #2: Nereus was the one who inadvertently came up with the name for Skye. While Coral was pregnant, Nereus came home one day singing a sea shanty he had picked up called "The Skye Boat Song" (listen to it, it's really pretty!: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kvf-7c…). Coral and Gilli both thought it was lovely, so they decided that if they had a girl, she would be named Skye. 

-Fun Fact #3: Nereus has two best animal friends that tag along with him: a baby octopus named Squishy and a blue fiddler crab named Krakatoa. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Anywho, DaYo, I just did this as a fun little thing. Maybe I messed up on a few things regarding the Siren race, but hey, I tried my best! :D 

And you can have them if you want...I don't really intend to take them anywhere OC-wise, it's more of just a one-off thing. And if you don't, that's totally cool too~

I didn't include the bottom half of her legs in the colored version because it just didn't seem to fit with the picture. :P 

This is free to color, as long as you credit me for the llineart! :D
