Boxing girl by this-is-a-paradox
Boxing girl
So this is kind of embarrassing.

A literal year ago, SatoshiTakeo requested that I draw a boxing person... I like just got around to it and I'm sorry. SatoshiTakeo, if you don't care about this anymore, I apologize and that's okay, but if you did want it... here. The references I'd been offered had expired, so I used this one instead, loosely:…

Music: "King" by Lauren A-something or other

Ace nails


My birthday just passed and I wanted to wear my identity as a proud romantic asexual. (6.13.15) The other hand is the same taping pattern but I put different colors places.

“Show Steel-er,” “Black to Black,” “Let’s Snow” (Sally Hansen), and Soo’s shade S028 (purple).

Butterflies. (6.5.15)


I think this is the third time I’ve done this pattern, but it’s been a while and it’s finally spring again so I thought why not

Colors: “I Shop Mintage” (OPI), “Let’s Snow” (OPI), and “Black to Black” (Sally Hansen).

Music: various soundtracks I found on this TSoA playlist
“Homecoming” Hans Zimmer
“Into Eternity” Brian Tyler
“Ella and Kit” Patrick Doyle

Playing with pens and braids in chemistry class. (5.27.15)

Since The Blood of Olympus came out (exactly haha) a month ago, I'm going to start posting spoiler-y things I've been drawing all month in the fan art folder so if you haven't read it, you have been warned.
  • Mood: Artistic
  • Listening to: "Irish Tune From County Derry" ~P.A. Grainger
  • Reading: Blood of Olympus again lol

Thanks so much!! That really means a lot to me. : ))) As for your comment on inking, I usually do color and stuff, but in my small sketchbook I don't. (Too lazy haha) I'm trying to learn more about shading and color, so in the future I should have lots of color added to my gallery! Thank you again for the kind words!!
