it's finally spring break and our dm decided to start a new campaign so dungeons and dragons is relevant again.
ive been doodling our party a lot uhhhhhh
so let me introduce Panem Vi
First is Ayla, our tiefling fighter. She's sort of the leader ay lmao. Dual wielder with ptsd from giants (she's died thrice from them now and it's only our???? fourth? fifth sessions??). 20 base charisma also swishes her tail a lot.
Uh second is Bryn. He sort of fell from a bridge and maybe died. He's missing and I think the party is trying to find him but who knows. Aloof, never was rlly close with the party, elf gunslinger, considered adentum his rival bc adentum is a better shot. also wore a gasmask and goggles to be edgy.
ADENTUM. THIS TRIGGER HAPPY INFANT. LI…Read more >
redid the shading on that one doodle of baste. heres the original anyways
such a pretty boy.
anyways yea. it's abt two boys who meet on the train. uh. baste's from donostia and jean's from donibane lohizune. hah. san sebastian and saint-jean-de-luz. i think im funny. jean's an author who studies literature in paris and goes to madrid to take creative writing lessons from his professor's close friend for the summer. sebastian is coincidentally going to the same university next semester and hops on a train to madrid to find accomodations there and check out the campus in general.
they meet in a train where jean writes abt the pretty boy seated across him and sebastian feigns ignorance and pretends not to notice the cute boy stealing glances at …Read more >
ill do any more updates on the library on this post i guess.
first of all i wanted to discuss.
this terrifying height difference.
That's more than a feet between them!!!
idk if leo is just That short or if xianyu is just that inhumanly tall. like christ let me zoom out the full sketches to compare
also leo's hair in that sketch is so floof.
Anyways I never really actually talked abt the premise of the library. Basically it's originally set in Borges' The Library of Babel. Leonor had always longed for a family or any knowledge abt their origins. They join the Inquisitors to find out about their parents. Xianyu becomes their assigned partner. Gua is there bc all of his family were apparently past inquisitors.Read more >
didnt draw digitally the past week
i started keeping a journal. it's in french. i don't know much french neither am i learning it. it's just google translated-proofread via my french dictionary bc im not a master at the grammar but hey yeah.
yesterday's entry was something like "I'm too tired to write, good night."
i want to draw more fish people. more leonor and xianyu. tbh i never decided if gua or xianyu was the first name but i guess i just call him xianyu bc idk surname-first name rule. i dont even have a plan for what in the world gua and xianyu are written as. perhaps ill search now wait 栝仙玉 what do you think. It's more of Xian Yu than Xianyu but doesn't matter. Gua as the gua for a juniper tree then xian yu for immortal jade or…Read more >
spring vacation is near.
i am moving back to the philippines in like idk a month. april 2.
after 10 years abroad.
thats a long time.
anyways more time to draw!! Spring!!
I've been focused on this painting recently.
Yes, of Ravel, dear gods help me.
I'm enjoying it.
And knowing me, I can't draw Ravel without Vines. May God help me in that case. (As I'm typing this, I'm listening to Menuet Spectral and oh. Here comes Oisseux Tristes. I'm such trash.)
(Menuet Spectral was written by Vines and dedicated to Ravel and Oiseaux Tristes vice-versa. Only Vines seemed to be the one to appreciate the Sad Birds back then anyways.)
I could rant abt Vines and Ravel for a while or I could show you my crippling amount of WIPs.
Here you go.
Yikes. That's like.…Read more >
Might do more sketches on old OCs and sht
so far im planning to draw
Ravel and Vines
Maurice Ravel and Ricardo Vines shading the Saint Marceux as stated in Vines' diary haha
im a nerd ive been reading biographies lately
so yeah thats about it on my to draw list but like as for my schedule i want to er marathon the good place and uh watch the shape of water. thats about it.
(also i just watched act 1 of ballet russes' daphnis et chloe last week i feel enlightened might watch act 2 and 3 later and draw art of my goatherd boy and his shepherd gf)Read more >
oookay. checked my current OC count and it's...
126 freaking characters and counting. that's a lot. the thing is, I've actually made designs and personalities (sometimes also backstories) for a handful of the OCs.
wow. I really need to actually improve on themRead more >
literally nothing changes except i add mild shading.
why did i do the ronald sketches in flat colour.Read more >
alternate of the ronald dood with balloons
couldnt be bothered with bg so i made it transparent
light source was weird and i couldnt be bothered to change the colouringRead more >
diff. colouring of the mika sketch i did
i like the way the skin and the hair colour interact.Read more >
so with my recent buma sketch i saturated + lowered the color deepness and added more contrast after. coloured with an overlay layer. it still feels too saturated but idk. i felt like the original was too warm lmao.Read more >
different versions of this:
Quite a bit as you can see. Had to think of how to crop it. Added a few trees on the final.
I quite like this drwaing style. Quite sceptic about the colouring and I'll have to think how to shade it later on but I think it's nice.
I've been thinking of how to make a good cartoon-ish style for a while now and finally ended up with this. Would've wanted to make the face more rounded but it seems okay enough.
Anyways got to sleep. Gute Nacht.Read more >
i have no idea what to call the ship name for adan and sibyl. so let us just call the ship name Emporia after the country/capital/idk i should re-read the story lmao.
so i watched the 2014 Vienna State Ballet's Swan Lake.
take it in mind that this is the first time i watched the whole ballet (ive listened to the suite a lot but never really got down to watch the ballet) so yes. i came for petya's music but stayed for the dancing. and music. and story. and basically everything. i wasnt invested in the story at first but darn diddly doo boy. it was quite nice actually. (seigfried died alone in this version by drowning to his death lmao)
the costumes were absolutely superb. it was all very toned down colours matched with white, silver, and bronz…Read more >
ive been pianoing. i -abandon- pause pieces a lot when i get too tired of reading the darn diddly chords.
Took up Valse Sentimentale which is honestly such a delight to play. It's tricky at first but after a couple of goes you get the hang of it. The chords??? I had an easier time reading them in comparison to Dance of the Little Swans??? Also completely halted Gymnopedie no.1. Dunno if i'll pick it up again.
Also dear god help me ive been in a Satie mood throughout the week and it's just rlly bad because???? Avant-garde things make me want to death and it's just rlly bad in general??? I hate avant-garde??
ive been writing as well which is nice. have a bunch of drawings i dont want to colour. whatever. yeah. bye. (ill colour them some time i s…Read more >
ive taken up the piano again. currently working on Satie's Gymopedie no. 1 (my right hand suffers. the notes for my left are too far so i have to do it with my right hand and it just becomes convoluted chords) and Tchaika's Dance of The Little Swans. u think Satie would be easier since his stuff are slower and less convoluted but he places the chords apart and im suffering.
Meanwhile, Tchaika is a delight. The piece is easy and delicate for people like me because hey. im a beginner and the most ive dealt with music before was studying (?? skimming through??) music theory and learning how to read music in general.
I still suck at it though. cant play both hands as well as i can with Satie. I'm done with page one out of four in Gymnopedie. Im …Read more >
broke my uploading streak. why u may ask?
two things, maybe three?
1. I dont want to draw
2. Sketching but not colouring
3. Ensemble Stars will be the death of me
Currently I have a bunch of sketches. HTF one for my friend's birthday which is on the 30th. It's full body as well. My friend says the legs are a menace but I just really prefer drawing shorter people. I guess I have to adjust the heads next time???
There are a bunch of other things but yeah. dont want to draw nor colourRead more >
hi so first of all the most recent one (i just finished it),
comparison of the sketch i did with the reference.
The Girl With a Pearl Earring is a v popular piece. It's somehow considered the Mona Lisa of Northern Europe???? idk
Next up if u missed the shoddy old version,
idk why but i really dislike this it looks rlly bad???? it bothers me a lot
In my traditional canon sketches, Adan was supposed to have an undercut but for some reason I changed that becaused idk
im an idiot
everything there is so misalligned his body twists a different way from his head and so do the clothes and the legs to the torso and im just?????
this is the worst???? I tried to clean it up but like yeah
Then like for the Nocturnes, I coloured the latest one a bit…

probably add more sometime.
Innocence of children, capability of men.
Even as one of the youngest races, the Genes are the most influential despite their inability to harbor magic. In the rare occassion one of them becomes born with Dreiten's blessing of harnessing nature's magic, the Genes appoint the person as a priest who oversees a piece of their wide territory. This authority is seen as unsatisfactory to most people though thus if ever a magic wielding Genes is born, their powers stay uncultivated for fear of using it and getting discovered. This is because of the knowledge that priests die early of exhaustion due to keeping the land fertile and produce abundant.
Genes are characterized by their soft rounded ears, fair eyes and dark hair…

it's a big arse work and my laptop is weak and sai keeps freezing and each time i save i just sWEAT because it hangs and i dont know if it'll crash.

Classical music keeps me alive (the opposite of what classical art does to me good grief)
here's a link to a wip of an Engellische-Sit'elsin Dictionary of some sort also: https://lingojam.com/edit/c3b0b38c2507dae1ccb41db63279493a
Here's the monstrosity anyways. My colouring style is definitely not for flashy, large bollocks.
Also Im going to change the background to fit the theme (which i havent…Read more >
me: back views are so awkward ill never draw one again
also me: *draws another back view*
so since th last back view i drew of ULC wasnt exactly that correct, i made another one. but it looked worse in comparison to the other so it ends up dumped hereRead more >
(Apfel showing skin aaaaAAAA)
it is i.
the fruit trash.
here's a colored doodle.
i need to color it in black and white but.
my darn tablet pressure chose to die after i painstakingly saved this (it took like 4-5 times before yeah)
so now im stuck with color for the blog and none for the actual page
headcanon time. (they're watching a movie btw in the picture if u didnt notice ok yeah)
Orangen loves blue. He loves it even if Apfel says it clashes terribly since he's a fuluckity flacking orange (saved it. no swearing for this alice.).
(Apfel's secretly fond of the color around (surrounding???) Orangen actually. He finds it endearing.(just not on himself pls god no he would be a bright mess))
if you didnt notice, Apfel somewhat dresses better ou…Read more >
Yo. Recently I've been saying yo too much yo. Also recently, I've been eliminating any sort of Japanese in my vocabulary yo. I'm re-learning English since mine has detoriorated so much from learning another language. Also if you've noticed, I'm doing proper capitalization now.
I had some coffee earlier so I think that's why I feel a bit more alive.
So on the way to becoming the ultimate westernized Alice, I've been picking up... I feel like a weeaboo now. This is like shameful. But I've been picking up and adding English words to my vocabulary. Like. I've always leaned towards the English way of speaking as opposed to those darned American's vocabulary.
Ok, ok wait up I'm confusing myself. Okay. So I grew up speaking American English but rece…Read more >

I've been doodling them a lot.
last year i doodled monsieur fleur on my papers and this year im doodling the two children on most of my papers.
it's the fun part of being academically gifted.
you get extra minutes after tests to doodle.
this is monsieur by the way
sorry if this isnt that great
he's seen better.
i used to be into monsieurcest
which is basically two monsieurs together
i have an example in my phone let me send it to my laptop
too lazy to crop it but u can see
i had a specific notebook wherein i drew my monsieurcest. that notebook is gone. even now i feel a pang in my chest. it had so much good monsieurcest. i forgot about monsieurcest and eventually forgot why i liked monsieur fleur in the first place.
this is the reason why i've moved i…

i like keeping them in black and white but i desperately needed to see Orangen in slyTHERIN COLORS YO.

The wiki's a mess
if u havent noticed.
I've requested for adminship on community central
but so far
I need to fix the bg.
it still has a watermark which is funny
i'll be editing the wiki's appearance and tool bar which currently, is p flickity flacking useless.
i already have a favicon at hand
it's of Cerberus lol
it's animated too.
well anyways. the front page is ok for now. I haven't made a background yet. i plan to include cherub again as a mascot. but for now it's just cerberus. i think i'll have him present the rules once i've thought of some. currently i have:

- no stealing art off the wiki
