On this episode of projects where I was allowed to just take a photo of an actor/actress/friend as my visual but instead I got carried away with a sketch.

Preliminary concept for my Detective OC, Ryan Priestly, for my Detective Narrative’s final project. I intend to continue developing her and working on her even after graduation.

Yeah, I lied. One more Dragon Age: Noir post for the day.

The only dark rituals that occur in DA: Noir, is the life of sin Daylen leads. lololololololol~

But seriously, I’m sure Aedan & Genevieve are super happy for him! I bet they just wish he would shut up about his future parenthood.

Horrifying video shows an NYPD detective going on racist tirade against an Uber driver

According to the video’s description, the incident transpired after the Uber driver gestured to an unmarked police car, telling him to use his signal as he attempted to park “without using his blinker at a green light.” The situation escalated to the officer pulling up behind the Uber driver, getting out and confronting the driver. Thankfully, the detective has been punished.

Blame it on Sidney Paget!

My first introduction to Sherlock Holmes was when I was about 10 years old and my dad read The Hound of the Baskervilles out loud to us. Scared the living daylights out of me, but I loved it. Soon after, I devoted a summer to reading through all the Sherlock Holmes books and what can I say, I’ve been into murder, mystery and mayhem ever since.
I always liked Sherlock as a character, of course–but Sidney Paget (who was a big influnce on me as a kid) made him look SO cool. I dunno, maybe it was the cheekbones. *shrug*
