Yooou got it~! 8D (dear God this is late sorry as well xD)

The spelling, I mean, but also an RP to end all RPs! Now tell me...what does Yasmine like to do? Where does she hang out?

(haha, not late at all!)

Whoot! To both! XD- uhm, she's a pretty avid baker, basket-ball player, and avoider-of-dangerous-looking-things |D so kitchens, courts and not the greenhouses is where she'll usually hang out, but I can totally be flexible and send her wherever if your little bae is more likely to be somewhere else~ (I'll have her loose an earring or something: oh, such tragedy!)

An EARRING, huh~?

--

“Gracious--you are certainly not worth enough to have me in such troubles…”

The little Candlekin spread herself out along the bottom of a sink, eyeing the strange, glittering treasure she found while water dripped noisily from the sink a mere inches in front of her. Above her hiding place stood a quaint-looking kitchen, obviously set up for those students better suited in the art of culinary cuisine. A small stove sat next to its oven companion, both looking rather ancient, but still functional. Rows of shelves and drawers holding a mess of cooking supplies and ingredients--from flour bags to mixing bowls, whisks to seasonings, and dozen or so different sized and marked measuring cups, pots, and pans. The fridge, possibly the crown jewel of the entire set-up, towered soundlessly over its kingdom, holding within it enough empty space for one to fit an entire feast fit for a king.

But Kerzendocht hadn’t had a chance to explore any of these modern-day wonders. The moment she appeared through a long-since-abandoned mousehole, a small sparkle near the sink demanded her attention. It was no problem scaling up the handles of cabinets and drawers to reach the strange object--her trouble began when she happened to slide on an un-wiped puddle of water and tumbled into the sink itself, the object pressed tightly against her chest. And it was within this sink that she’d been sitting for quite some time, finding the sleek, chrome-colored walls to smooth and wet to climb back up.

So the little Candlekin had taken to laying out on the rather cool surface, eyeing her treasure with a scowl and occasionally complaining to it every so often.

dust-bite.deviantart.com/art/B… is really good for the basics of bruising and colour choice (w/ a bit of blood) and I'd reccomend watching sfx makeup tutorials on youtube! These helped me but I'm still really bad at drawing beat-up characters....
I'm really looking forward to the tournament and hurrah for art spam!! //shot
Nika-tan's avatar
Nika-tanHobbyist Digital Artist
aaaah, that was really useful! Thank you!! I hadn't thought to add like little bits of puffy skin! (that sounds so gross omg XD)

Yeah, me too, it's gonna be so cool! BTW I may have already asked this, but can I use Dia in the tournament? I want to do like a little background before the fights and such |D
cluelooser's avatar
cluelooserStudent General Artist
No worries!

Dia is always available for you to draw!! Your art is a gift!!

And just quickly, do you mind if I annoy Gabe w/ Mayday for an assignment?

aksdlfs of course! Always! Seriously, use either of them whenever for whatever (I'd love to see!)

Nika-tanHobbyist Digital Artist
aaaah, right?? Gotta use like...references or something...ew //shot
You're kinder to her than I am, I'm trying to think of all the most terrible, horribly dramatic things I could get to happen |D
btw- I may have already asked this, but could I use Carina for some amount of tourney submissions? I want to show some of her interactions (specifically with the romance novel club ;P )
