this blog is fickle on my best days - not for lack of trying, of course. i remade to leave behind sour memories, and things that were not up-to-date with how i intend to portray kanan. so that’s where i’ll start this: it’s been three months since my remake, i’ve reached one of my milestones a little awhile ago ( but i’m lazy, sue me ) and decided it was time to appreciate you all ! thank you for tagging along with me on this journey, and i can’t wait to continue to develop kanan and build his relationships together.
I hit a bit of a follower milestone today, so I thought I’d share with you guys my very first bit of fan art.
This is a pencil sketch, probably from sometime in January 2017. It was just a scribble in a notebook; I never planned on sharing it, and I had nobody to share it with. I drew it because I love these characters, and I wanted to see what they would look like if they came straight from me, from my hands, onto the page.
When I figured out that I could digital paint, that curiosity took on a whole new level; now I could play with colour, texture, shade, and light. I could place these characters into new situations, change their character with a few brush strokes, explore their lives in binary ink. It was a wild feeling, and still is. That curiosity is a huge part of my motivation to create.
But I wouldn’t have kept painting on curiosity alone, not if all that met my work was silence. It was, and is, you guys–each and every one of you who messages me, sends me asks, reblogs with sweet tags, replies to my work–who give me the will to keep painting, pushing myself, and trying new things.
I cannot thank you guys enough for being here, for being so incredibly supportive of me as I venture into new territories, and for making me feel so loved. You all mean so much to me. ♥
Can I just say that I have never been more happy in my life? Hamilton brought me and my wife closer – it got us through one of the worst traumas of our lives, and it brought me here. Where I get love and support for just being my dorky ass self and drawing my little doodles of these amazing and wonderful characters.
Thank you guys, all of you, so much for being so sweet and supportive of my fun little hobby and continuing to encourage me. You guys are all beautiful and amazing and just
thank you. For showing me personally that being myself is okay. That me and my wife are #goals, you guys are goals, all of you beautiful wonderful people akdhlgs;
I just get so emotional thinking about it I love you all so much ;___; Thank you for being here and existing and being you. <3
Thank you all for your support about my ‘being-locked-out-with-Giorgio-screaming-and-firemen-coming’ walk of shame earlier. The panic has subsided and now I’m trying to just laugh about it, being thankful that they house didn’t burn down and the firemen didn’t let me pay anything because they probably pitied me for my helplessness, seeing me panic with a screaming cat at my front door. Needless to say, my neighbour is the one who made the phone call to the firemen, because I’m to anxious to even do that in times of need.
But at least the firemen laughed when they came to open the door and Giorgio screamed in a previously unheard of horror-style way.
“Luffy doesn’t want to give up his most valued treasure, so the rest of his clothes usually have to match a straw hat. So the above is what I usually see him wearing. I wouldn’t want him to feel uncomfortable in his clothes, so I would dress him up just a little bit…”
How did this happen??? I was satisfied when I hit 30 but then it just…kept going…Like, I’m not even a content creator I really don’t know how this happened. I mean I love you guys but…did you get lost on the way to better blogs? .-.
