Sketched some Skeksis a little while back. It’s 2015, and I just recently discovered the Dark Crystal, haha. Better late than never! :)

It’s been a good holiday.  I’m a bit anxious about entering my last semester of school. I’m sure it will be fine though. It’s a new year, and  I’m remaining optimistic, levelheaded, and kind to myself as much as possible! :) Hopefully this year will be better for being creative, active, and efficient in my work, as well as in other areas of life. Wishing you all the best as always!
