So, anyone who's been watching my Deviations over the past few months has noticed that I've started on a bit of a Homestuck kick. I started reading it last summer, and have found myself inspired by the series as a whole. Since I've never been the traditional fanart type, I've decided to do abstract landscape art of all the planets that appear in the series.  Obviously, I've got a fair amount of work ahead of me, both because there are still 14 I have to do, and the fact that we don't see much of most of the troll's planets. Still, I think it'll be an interesting challenge over the next year or two, depending on how inspired I get.

I'm...a synesthete, a comic geek, and I don't post much, because I believe in quality over quantity. I'm not going to post something if I don't have the inspiration to give it my utmost.
