Warning you guys ahead of time - I took over 300 photos today. They are NOT all being uploaded, but a LOT more than normal seem to be making the cut this time (21 and counting). I am currently in the process of weeding through, cropping, color correcting, etc. Then I will make the second pass-through to see which ones go here and which go only on my tumblr. A few of them are going to be uploaded into with probably a single one as a link - they are blurry as hell but would make excellent wing shape reference, so I figured I would put them here for that purpose.

Not sure how long it will take me to finish editor mode, I THINK I am almost done, but once I am... there will be lots of new stuff. Most of them being photos of a couple of herons we saw today. So if you like water birds, I guess these photos are for you.

Again, more of them will probably end up on Tumblr - only the ones I deem properly "artsy" go here. I always upload them in larger sets on Tumblr, in groups of 10 since that is their photoset limit.


Okay I need to stop. x.x Will try to remember to upload those wing refs in the morning. anyone else having trouble removing notifications all of a sudden?? *edit* Never mind. Had to do with how my ad blocker was interacting with the site now that Core is gone.

*edit 2* ...nope... nope it's being a jerk again. DA, wtf are you doing?
4.5 x 6.5 sheets of cardstock are about the perfect size for small portrait-style arts. Hmmmm.
Well at least it's the LEFT arm I injured.
Ref sheet made (to be scanned) for stryx handler Gladys Greenwitch. Next up, refs for her riders which will be used after the finds out Theia is a monumental jerk, for the purpose of tributes. Based on a really outdated character of mine, originally there was going to be one, now I think two: Jaro and Jara, a pair of anthropomorphic cats that were originally made of red and white clay, respectively, and brought to life by Gladys - a happy accident. They live in the woods nearby and have a partnership with Gladys now - she treats them like children rather than servants. The only children she ever had.

If you want to make me happy, give me honest praise, chocolate, money, expensive cars, a million dollars... =P OK I doubt anybody's going to give me those last two. But I can try, right?

Yes, I am this much of a dork.

But seriously, I do adore comments. Don't require them (I am notorious for the fave-and-run myself, I realize not everyone can think of something to say), but I do love them. :)

Holy crap I got an art Tumblr:
