Anxiety makes me feel like I’m full of moths. When you get excited for something, you get happy little butterflies, but the internal fluttering of anxiety is frantic and terrible. It’s in your stomach, making you sick. It’s in your throat, making it hard to breathe. It’s in your head, making it impossible to focus.
Don’t quite like the finished version as much as I like the lines but that’s okay!!!!
I wanted to draw a portrait of my leopard gecko, Corvo :3

You are the universe, expressing itself as human for a little while.

I saw this post and I just had to animate it, cause a pufferfish demo is just too cute
English artist Craig Davison creates series of paintings that beautifully illustrate the awesome power of childhood imagination and our limitless ability to play pretend as our favorite movie characters. He draws from a wide variety of movies, but the pieces seen here all revolve around Star Wars.
Kids play their hearts in the foreground while their shadows loom larger than life in the background as the fictional characters they’re pretending to be. Tree branches have become light sabers, cardboard tubes and a hair dryer work equally well as blasters, a garbage can and a colander are all you need to be R2-D2 and C3PO, and a pair of headphones serve as Princess Leia’s cinnamon bun hairdo.
Visit Craig Davison’s website to check out more of his delightful and nostalgic artwork. Then go grab a tree branch and meet us at the park for a light saber duel.

…Heart to heart? Waait, what? Oh, haha it’s the Medic with a heart. That somehow has eyes and stuff. It’s a doodle from a long time ago I decided to use as a practice piece.
I’m still in practice mode, I think. It’s pretty hard for me to stay in the middle ground between cel-shading and hyper-realistic shading. I want to give it a refined look at the same time a bit of goofiness. Ugh, I know those two things don’t go well together, but I have to experiment. Not to mention learn to paint lit scenes, and refine my sense of depth.
