The art of sqbr
1. Describe a barn from the perspective of a man whose son has just died in a war. Do not mention the son, the war, death, or the man.

Ahhhhhh this is so bad. Doesn’t help that I am hot and tired bluuuuh 43C summer days. But I need to practice writing more and not freaking out about stuff being bad. So. Didn’t bother with making it obviously not about a woman and her daughter cos screw that.

Note: Some of these exercises will produce bad writing. That’s fine. These are not guidelines of things you should do to every (or any) piece you write. They are just nifty little activities to try.

The end of the meme!

A flat coloured line drawing of me flying around happily in the green god tier outfit of a Maid of Mind from Homestuck.

I drew this both as the final picture in the 30 day “improve your draws” meme, and to try out the free art program Fire Alpaca. It is very simple but GREAT for inking and unlike GIMP or SAI works with my tablet on the Mac.

Last few meme things under the cut. EDIT: Wait, I double checked and skipped a couple. Will do ACTUAL last post soon.

I am slowly running out of monster girls…

Mass Effect: I am Commander Shepard

A mocked up screenshot of me (a pale chubby woman with chin length dark hair) as Commander Shepard in the Mass Effect character creator

A mocked up screenshot of me (a pale chubby woman with chin length dark hair) as Commander Shepard in the Mass Effect character creator. For a meme to draw myself as a character from an animated source, for 1nvadergir.

Draw Yourself Series

Put an animated source (game, anime, cartoon etc) in my ask and I’ll try to draw myself as though I was from that series.

Only stuff you know or can assume I’m familiar with please!

(Yeah, I gots lots of other stuff to do, but this seems like a fun break from all that. Now watch as I take it way too seriously…)

Monster girl 8: Checking the Morning Roster (Octomaid)

An amputee octopus woman in an electric wheelchair uses her remaining hand to drink coffee while she writes on a clipboard with two of her tentacles.

Had a very interesting discussion about the relationship between monstrousness and disability, thought it would be interesting to draw an amputee who still has more limbs than a typical human :) This is the type of wheelchair I use, though I added a guard to stop her tentacles getting tangled in the front wheels.

Monster Girls 4 and 5: Nagi and Mermaid

A nagi (snake girl) curls around a tree overhanging a lake and kisses the hand of a mermaid on a rock.

Got bored of portraits, decided to do some action and backgrounds. I coloured this in greys first to get the composition right, which I think did make it look better, even if the final colours ended up a bit odd.
