June || #notdead

But I'm posting anyway.

I woke up with a start a few days ago and proceeded to facepalm in dismay.

Because, holy heck no, I haven't posted in like two months.

I'm appalled at myself.

I'm sorry, guys. It's been a weird couple of weeks. And I haven't drawn hardly at all, I haven't had the energy.

That being said, I will try to be better, but I make no promises, because I just don't know if I can keep them.

I very much apologize for being gone so long. I haven't been reading or commenting on blogs either. I'm a horrible human.

But for now... Please observe my art. *Bows*

1.) Here, we have the first hug of the evening. It's cute. It's cuddly. Her hair makes me happy.

 2.) This one is just different. I'm not sure about it. I like her ponytail. She's probably listening to a musical or something.

 3.) I call this one, "Art block at it's finest,"

 4.) "Art block 2.0"

 5.) My sister-in-law asked me to draw a thing, and I did, and I'm mostly pleased with it. But it could use some tweaking.

 6.) The "Memorare" is a great prayer.

(I'm absurdly happy with that veil. Like YES, it actually looks like LACE!)

 7.) We listened to a version of Phantom of the Opera that none of us had heard before. It was an old version ('88, I believe?), with Michael Ball, Dave Willets, and Rebecca Caine, and oh my my. Can we talk about how the earlier casts actually kept the tune? And got their timing right?
And the Phantom didn't scream "GAO KNAOW AND LIIEEAVE MAAAEEE!"??*

*Go now and leave me

Good times.

8.) What's happening in this one? I have no idea. But I don't like it. Like... at all.

9.) *Whistles*

10.) This cuteness. 

11.) MAX! He hasn't shown up in a while. Poor Max.... I'm not wild about the way the post turned out, but Max is such a sad potato here. 

12.) So.. sometimes when Kate is recovering from injuries, she wears Tristan's shirt cause it's looser and more comfortable. Tristan thinks it's adorable.

13.) And sometimes even the toughest, most hardcore leaders need someone to hug them and let them know they're doing a good job.


I don't know, guys. I've just been... out of it lately. I'm trying to work drawing into my daily routine again, but I'm having a hard time with it, so please bear with me. :)

So that being said, I hope you all had an awesome weekend!

I miss you all! 

Question Time!
Favorite overall?
Best in black and white?
Favorite colored?
Best Tristan and Gang?

Any plans for the 4th of July?
What have you been up to? I want to know!

I love you all and I'll try to be back next week. 


  1. I love Tristan and Kate sooooo mucccchhh, Treskieeeee. WAAAAAAAAAAAAA. I am sad that you don't have the whole book written (or drawn. because drawn books are SO GOOD too) already because I need that pain and laughter in my life ASAP. crycrycry. love these as always. lolz. x

    1. p.s. i'd totally pay good money if you did actually publish that book ;) ;)

    2. ehehehehe. WAAAAAAAAAAHHH.

      (I know right? I should draw it but the ploooot. I need a PLOOOT.)

      But oooooh you'd pay for it?! HOLLAAAAAAAAAAAA

    3. AHAHAH I'm being completely serious by saying that you should get a plot, draw it up, and then publish it or at least make a copy for me because I'M NOT EVEN KIDDING. I REALLY REALLY WANT TO HAVE IT. So hey, start on that first page. The cover. The title. Then the first chapter. Because oh oh oh I WANNNT.

  2. WAHHH!!!!! YOU'VE BEEN GONE SOOOO LONG, I GAVE YOU UP FOR DEAD AND...!!! Yeah whatever. I missed your blog posts! :)

    Okay, here's a list of all the art I loved: #1, #2, #5, #9, #10, #11, #12, and #13. SO AWESOME!!! My drawing has been really bad lately. Like, I had one burst of inspiration! And I drew art, and was super happy! And then I tried drawing again, and it just didn't work. Oh well. :(

    Working on the 2nd season of Dr. Who by the way. ;) My dad has been away a lot so we haven't been able to watch it much together.

    1. *rises from the ashes* I liiiiiiiiiiiiive.

      Okay! *Boing boing boing* Oooh you like 9? Me too. lol. THank you!

      Oh my gosh I know that feeling. That's called art block and it's the very worstest. I'm sorry. :(

      OOOH What do you think of Ten? He's pretty cool right? I like Eleven better but Ten has funny lines. :)

    2. I hate art block so much! Almost as much as I hate writer's block. :)

      Ten? I'm only in season two. So it's only the second Dr.

    3. YES. lol.

      Ooh did you start on the Original DW series, from the 60s??

      Cause aha. lol. But if you didn't, and you started on the reboot, the Doctor with the cute hair and trenchcoat and converse is the Tenth Doctor. :)

    4. Oh. *feels dumb* Yeah I guess it is the Tenth Doctor. *hides*

    5. lol no worries, the Whoniverse is confusing sometimes :)

  3. Welcome back! I'm glad you're not dead.

    Favorite overall? 5 was well done, and catches the eye with all that blue.
    Best in black and white?- 3. I can relate.
    Favorite colored?- 4. Is that the sea personified?
    Best Tristan and Gang?- Probably 11, with 12 as runner up. I haven't made any official records or anything- but I suspect out of all the gang you like to beat up Kate the most.
    Any plans for the 4th of July?- Not really.
    What have you been up to? I want to know!- I've been putting my new digital painting tools to good use. I'm having so much fun- I can make comics now!

    1. Yeah me too lol. ;)

      #5. Lol yeah it's good, but the proportions are wrong. BUT the colors do make me happy :)
      #3. Me too.0_o
      #4. lol! Maaaybe. Or someone who can control the sea. I haven't decided yet. *covers face*
      11 and 12.... WELL HANG ON NOW lol. I don't actually beat Kate up that much. The boys take a lot more hits, but it's more fun to draw Kate hurt because the boys' reactions are so cute lol. Most of the pictures of Kate being hurt are from the same hurt scene. (Except the sprained/broken/can't decide arm. That's different) BUT NO, TRISTAN GETS THE EVERLOVING CRUD BEAT OUT OF HIM TOO, ONE OF THE OTHER BOYS *DIES*, AND THE LAST ONE HAS ALL SORTS OF OUCHIES AFTER THE BATTLE.
      No? *is sad*


    2. That makes sense- I stand corrected. ( Those poor guys!)
      Don't be sad. I have plans instead for July 1st, Canada's 150th!

      Kind of costly, but I think worth it.

    3. Yesss, those poor guys lol. ;)


      Yeah, the costliness is what's keeping me from just buying all the digital art things I want. :)

  4. Favorite overall-- 9...or 10....but mostly 9. :D
    B&W--also 9
    Colored -- 5!!! Oh my goodness, that story is so good. And the look on the little boy's face is beautiful.
    Tristan and gang -- 13 or 12....or 11....I DON'T KNOW THEY'RE ALL SO BEAUTIFUL AND HAVE SUCH INTENSE FEELS.
    Plans for the 4th -- Lol, I'll be out of the country... *hides because she feels disloyal to her country*

    I'm so glad you're back!!!!!!

    ~D. Skye <3

    1. Hahaha, you like 9 a lot, huh? Thank you. :)


      SUCH FEELS IT'S VERY INTENSE. POOR TRISTAN ALWAYS SO STRESSED OUT AND WORRIED. Poor Kate all beat up... poor Max, all conflicted lol.

      HOW DARE YOU LEAVE THE COUNTRY ON THE 4TH. LOL just kidding. WHere are you going??

      me too!~

    2. Yeahhh.....just a little bit. :D


      Haha it gets worse, my dad will be in London. o_o
      I'm going to Budapest, Hungary and Vienna, Austria with my orchestra. I've never been to either of those countries, so I'm really excited! :D

      ~D. Skye <3

    3. yay. lol.

      WOW REALLY??


      That's actually really cool though! Have an awesome day!

  5. cute drawings, I especially like #2 & 10.

    no need for apologies. I think people apologize too much on their blog, it's really unnecessarily as it's your blog, you can post or not post, it's all up to you.

    have a lovely day.

    1. awww. thank you, m'dear. :)

      Oooh. You're right, you know. OOOHY I NEED TO GO LOOK AT YOUR BLOG!

  6. Picture Saturday is back! *happy dance* I've missed these!

    1.) Aw, that is cute! I like the looseness of the shading as well--and I'm always awed by how well you draw poses!

    2.) Ooh, this one's good! I like her expression especially; it looks like she's focused on her music and not on anything else!

    3.) Oh dear! *sympathy* But you got a fantastic drawing nevertheless!

    4.) This one is pretty--I especially like the drape-y, flow-y dress! And her hair is obviously lifting in the wind, so great job!

    5.) Wow. Such a beautiful story, and you illustrated it well! I love the earnest but determined look on the boy's face!

    6.) Wow, that is an amazing veil! Yes, it definitely looks like lace (and I like the way you drew hair spilling out from under it as well)!

    7.) Oh I LOVE Rebecca Caine! She's one of my favorite Christines (though Gina Beck holds the top spot. :-) ) And beautiful drawing of Christine--her extended hand is just PERFECTION! Also, this is definitely my favorite colored drawing of this batch!

    8.) Looks like a sweet scene to me. :-)

    9). Aw! Amazing pencil work on this one! Favorite black-and-white!

    10). Okay, it got cuter! That's precious--their expressions are so cute and loving and excited!

    11). Ooh, more drawings of your characters! *bounces* I love his red shirt! Or jacket, rather. Also that gun and holster!

    12). Wow, you've drawn a lot of adorable pictures this week! My favorite thing about this one is that lock of hair falling in Kate's face--don't know why, but that detail really makes the picture!

    13). Aw, yiss, tough characters need love too! :-) I like Kate--she seems determined, stubborn, but sweet and vulnerable as well, a nicely layered character. Also, that pose is amazing! Definitely best Tristan & Gang--and my overall favorite as well!

    I honestly have no idea what our Fourth of July plans are. My dad and brother and I did pick up some fireworks today--so that'll be part of the plan! As for me, I've been listening to The Scarlet Pimpernel Musical (listening to "The Riddle" right now, and for the 135th time), crocheting, drawing, and writing!

    1. yay!

      1.)Awww,,. Thank you. I love drawing different poses. I like expressing emotion through poses.

      2.) She just loves music lol.

      3.) Wow, really?

      4.)awww, you make me feel better about my bad art lol.

      5.) Aww *covers face* The little boy did make me happy lol.

      6.) Haha I get a lot of references for veils, we wear them alot. :)

      7.) I like Maria Kesslemen the best. THAT WOMAN IS SO FREAKING AMAZING HER VOICE IS LIKE *AA:DFLKDSJF* But yeah, Gina Beck is good too.

      8.) Thanks. :)

      9.)Yeah... that one's not based in reality *at all* lol.


      11.) Poor Max. He gonna have a nervous breakdown.

      12.) lol She is too tired and battered to move that piece of hair. She has such a tired. lo.

      13.) Kate is someone I aspire to be. SHe's so spunky. AND she makes Tristan behave, and that's good. :)

      Me neither really lol. I DO know there will be water balloons involved.

      The Riddle is such a good song. XD XD XD
