New OC

So here's that original character I mention earlier (a whole page in the past).
She's half French, and has some Hindu deity in there. Because of the Indian influence, she tends to wear gold (a lot or a little, her jewelry HAS to be gold). Though she has Indian blood in her, she has absolutely no divine powers. I refuse to godmod.
Of course there's her weapon. While not original, a scythe isn't often used in battles (let alone epic battles). There are about three or four images I referred to draw my own scythe with all the lunar and Indian references. I think that's the only thing I really worked on, since I'm don't go about drawing armaments in my doodles.

I suppose the only unnatural thing about her is the fact her dark hair glints violet in bright light.
Try not to notice all the anatomical errors (I'll point 'em out anyway so you won't feel like 'enlightening me' anyway). The weird gap between her legs. One of her hands is bigger/longer than the other. She looks sort of cross-eyed. Narrow and awkward positioning of shoulders. Inaccurate cast shadows on her blouse.
I was more concerned about creating the character than making sure she looked human.

Crois en moi

A friend of mine got me into progressive metal again. Generally, I don't like metal all that much (I dislike screamo as well), but with all the Pink Floyd covers Dream Theater did, I couldn't help but like metal.
So along with my crappy mouse and to some songs by Riverside, Pink Floyd, Nirvana and of course, Dream Theater, I drew this patchy-looking image on Tegaki E.

I DO hope I can get a decent mouse to draw with. My fingers still remember my recent use of the touchpad for this near-full body drawing. x_x
Hopefully, someone on Skylands will colour it.

State of Mind

So, I'm feeling strangely motivated to do well this half, so whatever started this motivation, I hope it doesn't go away anytime soon.
Unfortunately, with all the required reading I have to do (which is still astounding), I haven't been able to do any recreational reading. Which is also strange since I always used to make time to read a novel. Maybe I'm find more subjects interesting...that may be due to the fact that I started taking one nonfiction book whenever I stopped by the library. And being the the cheap bibliophile that I am, that was quite frequently. The staff there know me by face, not yet by name, and that's not because I painted that mural for them!
Here's a collab I did with a fantastic artist-soon-to-be-wedded-teacher Katie Jo:

She did the lineart, and I the colouring. You can find her work at http://kjs.deviantart.com. Click, you!

On a more personal note, someone finds me interesting. And it's not a random person online who's never met an Indian...

We'll see how things go.
