30 Day meme days 11-12-13-14

My scanner is working! It’s a pain in the ass, but it’s working. Wow.

There ought to be another big batch of these coming– I’ve been drawing them more or less daily but I am playing a bit of catchup, plus I’m going out of town for a few days and won’t be able to upload anything.

Day 1: yourself
Day 2: favorite animal
Day 3: favorite food
Day 4: favorite place
Day 5: best friend
Day 6: favorite book character (can’t be a movie)
Day 7: favorite word
Day 8: favorite animated character
Day 9: favorite TV show
Day 10: favorite candy

Day 11: a turning point in your life
Day 12: most recent accomplishment
Day 13: comic
Day 14: favorite fairy tale

I guess I should be grateful I went to Snob U., because if I hadn’t I would never have moved to this city and I might never have ended up going to art school.

But Jesus Christ did I hate it there.

Cheap and sloppy, I know, but true.

The last page of the prologue of a comic I started writing once. Also, the last page I wrote full stop 😦

Day 2: favorite animal
Day 3: favorite food

Day 5: best friend
Day 6: favorite book character (can’t be a movie)
Day 7: favorite word
Day 8: favorite animated character

Day 9: favorite TV show
Day 10: favorite candy

I was legitimately held up on day 9, not for lack of trying, but because I couldn’t pick a single TV show. There are plenty of shows that put hearts in my eyes, but I can’t think of one that’s influenced me more than Star Trek: The Next Generation.

I’m not a big candy eater; when I want something sweet I tend to go for baked goods instead, and my friends all think I’m insane because I like the actual cake better than the frosting. But when I do eat candy, I am totally easy for anything with peanuts or peanut butter.

Day 5: best friend
Day 6: favorite book character (can’t be a movie)
Day 7: favorite word

I don’t have a singular best friend right now, but this lady is the only person I still talk to from high school. The lines behind her are something else entirely on the previous page.

Leaning against the wind was like leaning against a wall. Hilary pulled off her hat and let her thick bobbed hair blow out behind her, so that she looked like one of the floating singing angels in the church below. . . . [She] advanced to the parapet, leaning over between the pierced battlements to stare out southward over the Fen.

Hilary Thorpe from The Nine Tailors by Dorothy Sayers.

I don’t have a favorite word, so I asked a friend and she said hers was lechuga and it was Spanish for lettuce. Blame her.

30 Day meme day 4

Day 1: yourself
Day 2: favorite animal
Day 3: favorite food

Day 4: favorite place

This was a tough one. I went with Millennium Park, eventually, because I spend so much time there when it’s nice out. One of my favorite things to do in summer is grab a sandwich from 7-11 and go sit on the grass and read a romance novel or something.

30 Day meme day 3

Day 1: yourself
Day 2: favorite animal

Day 3: favorite food

I like all kinds of vaguely healthy things too! Like crab salad and Cobb salads and apple pie and lamb curry with mutter paneer. But if there is a single food I am endlessly easy for, it’s a nice hot greasy sausage-egg-and-cheese sandwich on a biscuit.

Oh God, I desperately need to get my scanner working and I am so sorry :C

30 Day meme day 2

Day 1: Yourself
Day 2: Favorite animal

My friends all have entertaining favorite animals like Eohippus and Megalodon and jellyfish. Me, I just like puppies.

30 Day meme day 1

AHAHA I love how I was all determined to keep this thing going and then didn’t post for over two months, and this had no effect whatsoever on my view count. That’s a little sad.

Anyway, here I am; I will be updating with schoolwork from Figure Drawing and Costume Design I soon enough. But in the meantime, just to get back into the swing of putting my art up on the internets, and to sort of warm up preparatory to when I start posting an actual webcomic on June 1

WHICH IS IN LESS THAN A MONTH

OH JESUS GOD I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M DOING HELP MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

I am doing this instead.

A friend alerted me to the existence of this 30 Day Drawing Challenge. There’s probably a bunch floating around, but since my friend is doing this one I might as well do it with her.

Day 1: draw a self-portrait.

For the record, this is what I actually look like, as of an hour ago when I got home from class:

This is what I drew– without benefit of a mirror, because there wasn’t one handy when I had time free:

Although I did ask someone else sitting nearby whether it looked like me. She thought it did, a bit; I am unsure.

It’s a passable head; at absolute minimum, it shows a basic understanding of how heads work. But I’m not sure it’s me.
