Drawiiiiings~

To show me the way that you're feeling
Asleep on the floor in the evening
Alive at the end of the day


Alice suggested in another thread that maybe we could have an art thread, so LET'S DO THIS.

I drew this just now:

I like it. :D I think the lips might be sticking out a little too much, but other than that, yay.

So uh, hm, I guess basically we should:
- Share art we've done (any kind, let's be inclusive! Drawings, songs, movies, stories, whatever!)
- Share art others have done that we enjoy and/or would like to discuss (but remember to credit the artist, of course)

Expect me to crowd this place for the next little bit. o_o I am in a drawing frenzy.

any kind of art, huh?
Well, poem I did a couple of weeks ago that I'm still debating sharing with people that would recognize people in it. link
Hopefully decide to write something tomorrow and hopefully it'll be less of a downer :wink:
Kind of wish I could draw like some people though :P
Lost in the eddies of time
Stones that compose me
Leaving them lost seems a crime
Those faces so easy to see

That best friend, just a cute boy
Days spent swinging through the air
Time spent in sorrow, in joy
Only friend labeled best, how does he fare?

Now he seems happy
Can only judge by a picture now
Unless he decides to be yappy
I long to talk, he knows not how

A girl barely known
A brief kiss shared
A shame by bullies sown
Name not known or dared

That brave girl that gave hope
Whom small town could not have kept
Who gave friends so I could cope
Without you I would only have wept

Thoughts pushed to contact you
Always blocked by cruel fear
What must one do
When the path is so unclear

Another kid just as new
A bond formed so fast
Our opportunities together so few
I wonder if it could last

Other friends made in school
Loved those many years
None of us were cool
Your loss now leaves tears

The girl with a weird name
That made a promise now so sweet
Though that prize is not mine to claim
Maybe we’ll still be able to meet

That boy with the long hair
The most brilliant in the class
My soul to you I could bare
Would I make a pass?

The only one I can think
In a way more than as a friend
If to the past I could link
Mayhaps it wouldn’t have to end

The guy obsessed with tech
I assume that’s what you do still
May your passions not lead to wreck
Should I chat? Maybe I will

The girl so strongly attached
To parents’ viewpoints then
What schemes since have you hatched?
Are you the same, after those years almost ten?

That guy also weird
So afraid to be a geek
How would you be if I peered
Though I’ve stayed too meek

That girl in college
Enthusiasm so bright
Your success I wish to gauge
Will you bring crimes to light?

Those teachers so kind
All so willing to wait
Bringing knowledge to a mind
Should you know my fate?

More recent friends have gone away
Your main desire not to hurt
Was there anything left to say?
Your departures so curt

Current friendships so strong
Helping through a troubled time
Though they haven’t lasted long
They can’t be captured in rhyme

Nothing new yet. D: Been busy. IT IS AWFUL BEING BUSY.

You guys are sweet, though. Thank you. <3

Wellllll, how much you got? ;D
I've done a few commissions here and there, but they were very limited. Because my skill set is very limited. ;_; All I can draw is ladies, basically, unless you want something more cartoony.

Here are some (pretty old) examples of non-ladies (and also one old example of a lady):

I'm rather fond of the bear and pig, honestly. :P

Anyway, this isn't supposed to be a "HEY LOOK AT VAL SHE'S THE CENTER OF ATTENTION" kind of thread. Other people should post more stuff, too. D:

I haven't written anything lately though :( and I can't even draw a circle :P
I could post older stuff, if you wish though :wink: Or, we could just make a new "Val's the center of attention" thread :lol:

The knight in white defended valiantly
She strikes and with each blow out rang a clap
The knight in black attacks mercilessly
The pair were both asearch for that lone gap

The blade through air did slice and armor hit
A piece of white broke loose and fell to ground
The blade of dark did flourish fast alit
With fire from hate and loathing found around

The one in white onward did press striking
In search of life she swung and then blades rang
With sword of black in pieces broke falling
Upon soft earth they fell and victor sang

The knight of darkness merely stepped away
And reached to find a sword, repeat the play

Ms. Lia asked me to draw her a picture, so this happened.

Last month, I drew fanart for David Willis's webcomic, Dumbing of Age. This is Sierra:

I can only draw ladies (...well, a lot of the gals I draw would kinda fall down laughing at being called 'ladies', but you know...), too (I once responded to one of my rare drawings of a guy with 'I either need to draw more guys, or give up entirely...')...and even they're always cartoony. >_>

Anytoot...MAH ARTINGS! (Also, mah writings, but that's less the point of the thread. >_>) Warning...there's some (terribly drawn) nudity in a couple of the galleries. (... Not the pony one, no.)

Some specific drawings...
Me! Me! Look at me! (Sorta. >_>)
One of my ongoing RP characters, Hellfire.
Her daughter, Glitch.
A kuchisakeonna.
A bunch of characters...surprisingly, the guys are less terrible in my eyes than the girls.
I'm very fond of tattoos...


At some point, I changed how I drew hands...I blame the ponies - seriously, it happened when I did that series, so they're probably to blame. (I'm trying to fix that, but the only example of my return to the style is NSFW...) I...also at some point stopped drawing eyebrows. I shall have to go back to that, too. v_v
