i wanted to portray death as i see it - soft, warm but dark, intimidating but not fear-inducing, tranquil and ancient and inevitable
this is my first intensive digital painting piece and it took about 20 solid hours of work over the course of about 2-3 weeks, about 15 of which were recorded via livestream (and the last 7.5 done just today)
i have a massive headache and my fingers hurt but i am so very very very happy with this
if you like it, please consider buying a print or sticker or shirt of it; i work a single minimum wage job and i have been needing to borrow money from my family to keep myself living where i want to, so revenue from my art - especially a piece i’m so proud of - would be the most awesome thing
And it’s breaking over me
A thousand miles down to the sea bed
Found the place to rest my head
Never let me go
And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
And all this devotion was rushing out of me
In the crushes of heaven for a sinner like me
But the arms of the ocean delivered me
And it’s over
And I’m going under
But I’m not giving up
I’m just giving in
I’m slipping underneath
So cold and so sweet

piece i’ve been meaning to do for months now - nearly a year - featuring my fantrolls, ashkhi and zannik
this is my new highest bar #thanksstoick
NOTE: despite how much they look alike in general colouration, this is NOT hiccup - this is my oc al
httyd au where al has a female nightfury named sleeves as his best friend. he made his weapon himself and he doesn’t know what to call it except “fucking heavy but fucking scary too”
this took me probably around
10-12 hoursof work and i don’t regret a single bit
EDIT: uhh, someone else counted my livestream videos and tells me it’s more like 15-16 hours.
that’s $375-$400 dollars at my current commission rate
PLEASE look at the hi-res linked below
So here it is. The lovely cover for my first novel which I am self publishing later this month. My amazing friend Iggy Marauder made this and I got to watch the whole process via skype. It was one of the coolest things ever, and I almost cried.
I’m polishing up the synopsis this week and will also be releasing that. But I wanted so bad to share this first because I’m so in love with it and I can’t believe this is actually happening!!
On June 27th Heavy Hearts will be available as an eBook and if all goes well it will be available for purchase on demand paperback and hardcover.
This isn’t the full synopsis, but here’s a quick rundown:
The story of a girl who finds herself in a love triangle, but this isn’t just any love triangle. Not only does she have three different gorgeous men pining for her affection, but she has some sort of history with each one….
Stay tuned for more
made this cover
eonsa month ago and forgot to rebooble it. oops.
kylie needed a cover and i was more than happy to help! buy a copy for kindle here.
i’m getting 500 stickers of this made and i’m probably just going to hand them out to people around town or make a trip to boystown and slap them up in places when i get them
however if you would like this as a sticker or on a shirt, tote, or phone case, they’re available here on my redbubble.
i usually get 50% profit, making the items half again as expensive as the production cost alone, but these items are only 15% of the production cost since you’d be promoing me :3
the now named cyclops girl, chrysanthe miskos
american girl from a greek family, hates putting on glamours to deal with mundanes, and goes to london other university of arts for sculpture/ceramics and isn’t terribly good at it, but she’s cool with that. she makes weird and interesting pieces and stumps around school with her backpack on both shoulders and the high-lifting tromping steps of a true hiker.
today is my nana’s birthay! my mom said if i drew her something she’d get a print and frame it.
since she loves hummingbirds and ruby throated hummingbirds are always around the house, i made her an angel - the triangle and triple spiral stand for her love and maternity she drapes over everyone
i did vent art a couple weeks ago because i felt like utter shit
whenever i do vent art it’s almost always al as an angel or al getting hurt
drew it upside down so it wouldn’t look like a fucking disaster but because it’s hard for the mind to flip the image, i’ve done it for you so you won’t miss any details. proper way is up top, reversed is on bottom.
done with pencil for the sketch (now erased) and black caligraphy pen and red sharpie

Walter Lopez, 2014
a coworker of mine, Walter, is a tattoo artist in his free time and while discussing getting my two tattoos touched up and prices, i asked him if we could trade art for art
so my part of the trade was album art for some music he made recently
despite almost never ever using photoshop to actually shoop and hardly knowing how to, this was really fun and i ended up really really fucking proud of it
