Wings of Sarenrae
I love the huge difference in the story depending on their rolls.  Like, she could have literally tripped off this cliff and fallen face first into skeletons.  Instead she leaps out and giant holy wings carry her farther than she could have naturally jumped.  One of my favorite gasp out loud moments so far.

Rescue
Vex and Keyleth rescuing a seriously wounded Vax.  I still can't believe he survived this.

So my head canon for Keyleth's beast forms is that they all have a pretty leafy druidic pattern.  That and her antlers.  I really want to try this on some of her other forms!

Lady Briarwood
My attempt to capture Matt Mercer's sadistic Lady Briarwood as she watches Lord Briarwood descend on a helpless Vax.  

Really struggled with this pose.  One of those drawings that starts off loose and awesome and the more you try to tighten it up the more you kiillLLl it.  I think in the end it's not bad, but I really need to loosen up these sketching muscles.

Pretty Bear
It's moments like this in the show that make me think a lot about the power of good story telling.  Sometimes I feel silly because I'll catch myself getting giddy or sad over something that's happening in the game, and then I remember none of it is REALLY happening.  But then, that's every book, movie, and game too right?  

So the moral of the story is that if I can fall in love with Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy and I can also be gleeful when Vax ties bows on Trinket just for fun.  None of the characters are real but the emotions are. <3

Girl Talk
So I loved Felicia Day's character, Lyra.  Both guest stars for that segment were amazing, by the way.  What an enjoyable set of episodes!  I picture Lyra looking like an awkward cross between Snow White and Olive Oyl.  And of course one of my favorite things was the interactions between her and Scanlan.   What started out as an unhappy captive audience turns into actively bonding over each others tumultuous (and unrequited) love life.  Beautiful.  Manipulative, but beautiful.

Also I can't bring myself to draw Scanlan much smaller than this.  I see a lot of cute and somewhat childlike art of him but then I think, "BROTHELS."  And I just can't.

Also I am aware that somehow I ended up dressing him like Alexander from Kings Quest 6. It just... happened.

Just another artist in CA, recently graduated from art school with a BFA in fine art, and desperately in need of a place to unload my gratuitously sentimental fan art. One of these days I'll figure out how to use a tablet and upload glorious colored work like everybody else.... but not today.

Not today.
Well hello!  Has it been about six months since my last update?  I think so, because that's how pregnant I am right now. 
Yup, we're expecting another little girl around the beginning of June, and I currently feel like I am carrying a small planet around and not a tiny baby.  I also look like that.  We're very excited over here, but let me tell you, the first trimester was ROUGH.  Like, constant nausea for weeks rough.  The kind where you don't want to do anything but sleep until it's over?  So naturally all drawing projects came to a screeching halt while I wussed out on the couch in the fetal position.  Once I finally got my energy back I needed to focus on other things, what sort of life stuff do I need to get done before this baby comes?  Getting our office converted into a bedroom, cleaning out junk and storing other junk.  Finishing touches on a children's book I have been working on for a lady who is self publishing (I will be posting more details about that as soon as they are polished up and ready to share.  So exciting!)  We started house hunting in our area which has been about 30% exciting possibilities and 70% sucking the soul out of my body. 
I'm also just wrapping up another 8 week set of art courses at the charter school where I teach.  Though this time around they asked if I could "throw together a middle school class."  Just THROW TOGETHER an 8 week curriculum for kids at an age where the only thing that appeals to them is TOTAL CHAOS. 

And I had a week and a half to prepare. 

IT's bEEN A BUSY COUPLE of MONTHS.

Oh yeah, and I have a two year old too!  Let's not forget her!  She's still awesome and fun and sweet (and she talks so much, she honestly keeps getting funnier), but she's also getting more independent and has waaaay more energy than I do right now.  On good days we're having fun exploring the world together and teaching her to be a civilized person.  On bad days I'm just trying to keep her from digging through the cat box.  We have a lot of both days. 

So basically, what I'm whining about is, look how impressive it is that I finished another page of Arlana's story!  LOOK.  I still draw sometimes!  I wish I was drawing more but you have to measure success differently depending on what's happening in your life at the time.  That's been a good but tough lesson I've been learning throughout my life, but especially as a mother.  I've never wanted to be the "do it all" woman, but there are THINGS I want to make sure I don't let fall by the wayside.  And just taking the time to do a little sketching here and there are helping me make sure I don't stop drawing all together because I'm too busy or not motivated, or what have you. My husband is also so supportive of making sure that I have time to do my art, I can't emphasize enough how important that is.  Don't stay with someone who doesn't appreciate and support what you're passionate about (as long as it's a healthy passion, you know?  I'm really passionate about eating chocolate too but we try to keep that in check.) 
Having you cool people to share it with is also so motivating and keeps me accountable.  I'm sorry if I haven't responded to some of your wonderfully thoughtful comments, I think I kept holding out until I had something to upload.  Now I'm going to try to go back through and answer those. 

Hope to hear how some of you are doing too!  Thank you for your patience, all the favs, and all the comments!

I happened across one of your Dragon Age deviations, which pulled me into all the art you've done of your Cousland thus far. I just wanted to say that I think you have a *fantastic* style and a true knack for capturing the emotion of a scene; it's lovely. I can't wait to see what more you do!

Thank you!  The baby is great!  She's still a light sleeper which is a pain.  But she's so dang cute I guess I can forgive her.  Btw she's totally gonna be my gamer baby, she loves pushing buttons and figuring out what they do.
