DTA - La Vie En Rose Entry
 I recently reread "The Seventh Wife" by T Kingfisher, which has one of my favorite lines from literature (one of) "Thorns are the price of roses".  But Chocolate seems like it probably makes them less stabby. Works for me too. 

 If I don't win, the winner may use this as fan art, if they want it. <3

 It was fun to work on! ^_^ Very neat little DTA
 IDK about you guys but sometimes it's just useful to be a noodle and draw your characters to some of those weird expression memes, regardless of whether or not it's something you plan on doing to them IC. 
Redrawing Rot
I did a bit of a redraw on my next-gen OC Noble Rot, who, apparently is a lot easier to do if I try less hard to embrace the cartoony style. (Which apparently I'm still not very good at). Maybe it's just that I have a kind of soft spot for the slightly elrichy nature of Changelings and that's easier to convey this way. 

 But yeah, Noble Rot, folks. 
Seeking Xerneas
 Seeing Xerneas so quickly after arriving in the new Frontier, after living their entire life without even being sure that legendaries still lived, was a profound experience for Mack and the other explorers with him, and he's still devoted to the experience, and hopes deeply to not be involved in making the same mistakes that his ancestors did. Xerneas, representing life as they do, are a particularly important figure for him, so it probably becomes no surprise that feeling desperate to know what the right thing to do is, Mack would turn to the wood and hope for some guidance there. 
 Practicing some of my digital painting skills, with my OC Shavn and an super cute little grifflet thing I bought a while back from the talented :iconrejamrejam:. I wish I could just have buckets of money so I could pay Rejam to come up with cute fantasy wildlife that I could play with. AH WELL.
