Some Prismacolor Dark Brown over Orange this morning. Work’s been busy enough that I haven’t been able to get in as many warmups as I’d like. But I guess I can’t really complain about that 😉🎨🤘🏽 #prismacolor #pencilsketch #sketching #drawing #arte #doodles #artists #sketchbook #create #fantasy #illustration #characterdesign #conceptart #cartoons #artists

Be present. Make love. Make tea. Avoid small talk. Embrace conversation. Buy a plant, water it. Make your bed. Make someone else’s bed. Have a smart mouth, and quick wit. Run. Make art. Create. Swim in the ocean. Swim in the rain. Take chances. Ask questions. Make mistakes. Learn. Know your worth. Love fiercely. Forgive quickly. Let go of what doesn’t make you happy. Grow.
—  Paulo Coelho

Hey, A friend commissioned me to do a Dan.Va with a selfie game and I thought it was funny so I hope you enjoy it as well.

I’m so sorry.

“You’ll be alright, no one can hurt you now. Come morning light, you and I’ll be safe and sound.” 

Ya’ll asked for a the backstory for the Sun/Moon Spirit AU and ya’ll gonna regret asking for it tbh. 

  • During the ancient times, there existed two of the most prominent tribes on land; the Sun Tribe and the Moon Tribe. 
  • Adrien and Mari were the respective gods of their respective tribes. They were fairly young spirits at this time. Spirits don’t age after 21. 
  • Both tribes co-existed peacefully until a war broke out over land and authority. The Sun Tribe insisted on ruling over the moon tribe, believing they were superior. 
  • The Moon Tribe, of course, fought back and they fought back harshly. To the point where Adrien displayed himself to the humans to reason out. Mari tried to do the same. 
  • In the time of absolute chaos and anger, common sense flew out the window and the war continued. 
  • Mari had been attacked and fought the Sun Tribe and Adrien had fought the Moon Tribe. 
  • Due to the tribes being connected to Adrien and Mari, their own emotions were inflicted towards their gods. Mari was forced to ‘hate’ Adrien and vice versa.
  • Adrien and Mari fought at the peak of the war, a fight completely out of their will as spirits. At the time, they were allowed to see each other but never did. This was their first physical meeting.
  • It’s said that the Earth was practically shook from the fight; thunderstorms, hail, tornados, near floods, earthquakes, hurricanes and more, it was all present during the fight that lasted 3 days.
  • Adrien and Mari’s role as the strongest spirits and the eldest was a main factor for this.
  • The gods broke their fight apart, fearing that they were damaging the Earth too severely out of their own will and also because, seeing both, they feared that Adrien and Mari could become entities stronger than even them. 
  • They banished the Sun and Moon Tribes. 
  • And erased a whole year’s worth of Adrien and Mari’s memory. 
  • They banned Mari and Adrien from ever seeing each other apart from the eclipses, fearing that if they saw each other too often, they would begin to remember the erased memories and begin to feel the inflicted emotions of the tribes back then, leading to another fight out of their will. 
  • Adrien and Mari both believe their injuries, bruises and cuts all over their bodies were from a fight against someone a long time ago, though when asked, neither seem to remember. 
  • Adrien has cuts everywhere around his back, including a massive cut right on his tattoo. It’s healed and had begun to fade over the decades.
  • Mari has cuts down her leg everywhere from fights that’s hidden under her long skirt. 
  • Unhealthy reccomendation; listening to ‘Safe and Sound’ by Taylor Swift and the The Civil Wars whilst thinking of this and even worse, when drawing it.
