State of the Art!

Okay, really bad pun in the title, I promise I won't do it ever again but I totally will and will regret nothing, really!

So I've been kind of quiet since I have actually been under the weather for the past 2 weeks. TWO WEEKS. This is rather unfair! I blame Florida.

I had a really awesome party on the 28th, which I'll make a separate post about (once I find pictures, I was too busy flitting around to take them myself). And discovered what it's like to pull an all nighter! Not by choice mind you - I discovered that upon getting the lip sore to destroy all lip sores, it cause my muscles to ache so bad, that my headache could not be defeated by normal ibuprofen, nor would it let me sleep. I did, however, watch a LOT of Disney movies during that evening, so it wasn't a total loss. I even watched Cinderella III: Twist in Time, and honestly, that movie was HILARIOUS and ADORABLE. I loved it! And now I want to cosplay Anastasia (pink stepsister) so much.

But that's not what this post is actually about. This is about some artwork! For those not in the know, I sometimes post things on my own Deviant Art page: karmada.deviantart.com, and sometimes I post artwork onto my tumblr: karmada.tumblr.com (are you seeing a pattern here?).

So first, a few pictures for you:

Okay, okay, I may have joined FFXIV finally...

This was actually a gift for the person who kind of organized the whole party thing. It's her FF XIV character.
I have also told her I am NEVER DRAWING THAT SPEAR AGAIN.

I've been trying to do more artwork since I've been in a funk since FOREVER AND A YEAR AGO. And being on Tumblr (that fickle beast, it is), I have discovered that there is some sort of art thing called "INKTOBER".

Naturally, it's about making a new inked drawing each day in the month of October, hence the name! And since I had actually *just* recently been experimenting with using Sumi-E Ink and a paintbrush to ink (see copic-ed image above), it seemed like a neat way to practice.

I'm a couple of days late (due to the stupid cold and things), so I have a couple of pictures to catch up on, but here's my first one:

All done with a PAINTBRUSH (okay, except the signature)
It's got some flaws, but I'm hoping that by the end of the month, I can show off more skill than I started with!

LET'S. GET. INKING! *vanishes into the night*

*bumps into table*

Okay, I'll have to turn a light on if I'm gonna do that...
