Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

So I've been hoping to do more proper scenes and use characters' canonical designs more rather than the chibi ones. I had one I wanted to get done in time for Halloween, but turns out the design was too detailed and ambitious that I'm still not done. Also I had election research to do so that was more important. Not even planned to put a background to it. So yes, will absolutely post that once I'm done. I had realized I HAVE some doodles and things finished, but completely forgot to post them. Pretty sure I have descriptions as well for the three I have. But apparently I can't remember to post shit. I have to practically write it down on my phone to even remember to do it, and that won't always be a guarantee either.

I'm at a point where taking care of myself physically has become a lot easier, but planning out my hobbies or taking care of myself mentally (other than therapy and meditation) has become hard. I came upon the realization that I'd probably get somewhere with my stories if I took the time I spent on video games and put it toward art and writing instead. The other problem is ADD makes it really easy to hyperfocus on art for a couple days, then I forget the art even exists. Which is why a schedule would help greatly. Part of me has realized that if I made finishing writing a story a goal, that maybe I actually COULD do it, instead of simply going "hah, that's a nice dream though" when literally the power to make it reality is quite literally in my hands. So scheduling both for art posting and art making definitely is on the agenda.

So plans: try to put art on a schedule so I'm doing it more consistently, start posting the art I do have, actually get on a schedule.

I keep looking at old art from 2010 to 2013 and looking at the descriptions is often very cringe-worthy. What's worse is that though I have more a preference to trying to type more in line to proper English standards, because much of what I write has a basis in humor (though I'm more self-aware and may intentionally invoke something), the humor that's displayed in earlier descriptions felt very "rawr XD" and somehow took myself way too seriously. Especially as someone who would write or make dumb shit and expect to be taken seriously. Now I write and make shit with a bit more organization and meaning, except it's still equally dumb and I invoke the dumb on purpose because of how laid-back I've become.

Watch in another 5 years I'm going to come back to my art from my mid-20s and go "wow this shitlord right here. They're STILL using the "XD" emote while self-deprecatingly talking about how dumb it is that they use it so much, what a hypocrite!" I hope I don't take things too seriously again, it was a dark time in my life and I didn't know how to prioritize what was important or not.
Greys Swapping Clothes

ZakkLark: Greys swapping clothes

Almost a year ago, I told :iconkodoukat: I was so fascinated by their character Lark and his outfit that I drew fanart… though my idea of fanart often involves outfit-swaps and my characters cosplaying the character of interest, so I did go and drew Lark afterwards in Zakk’ra’s clothes. And then didn’t get around to posting the whole thing for the better part of a year. Sorry. <:u

Anyhow, I ended up picking Zakk’ra mostly because he had superficial similarities to Lark. I’ll admit the te’zhor definitely have parallels to greys even if it wasn’t intended. They also both have a bit of discomfort from aspects of their own races as a result of not conforming (or in Lark’s case, being unable to use the same kind of powers of his race), and both happen to be intersex, but most of the similarities appear to end there. When it comes to clothing, their preferences are drastically different, with Lark’s description citing a love of pastels, while Zakk’ra tends to settle toward neutral colors, usually lighter colored, but definitely not colorful or poppy. He also has more of a preference for wearing jackets and scarves indoors (everywhere, really) because he can apparently never be too warm.

I had also picked Zakk’ra because well, he’s cute and I like dressing him up as I do all my characters. :u Beyond everything else, Lark and Zakk’ra I’m not sure would really have much in way of compatible tastes since one’s a big science nerd and the other is a flashy musician, but who knows? Zakk does like things outside of science. :B

Anyways, sorry for the huge delay. I may have to color this eventually, because the colors of Lark’s outfit are also super adorable. Hopefully I’ve overcome this lack of desire to make art for a while so that I don’t take another year to post/finish things. <:u

So as if I need an excuse as to why I'm not posting or drawing (a combination of laziness and not being in the mood as usual), but starting this weekend I will not be able to be contacted through here. As such, there won't be art posts for the next two weeks, but I can try to muster up the mood to post things afterward. I have a few things worth posting, and I'll probably try to get to those after vacation.

Either way, see you soon!
Do you ever look at your favorited stuff and go on a mass purge of things because some of the stuff you used to like was cringey, or simply not interesting to you anymore?
