30 days of character development: day four

Merry isn’t vain. In fact, she’s on the complete other end of the scale when it comes to her self-image. Oh sure, she knows that people think she’s cute (and mayble, that fairly attractive nice hobbit lad who works at the market thinks she’s pretty), but her actual body isn’t something she likes a deal.

She’s built almost of a similar size of the Anna in this very cool concept art by bridgioto

Although Hobbits have different body “norms”, it’s still a hangup for her.

Some blue sky work for that mysterious project that I’ve occasionally posted some work for… WHICH IS NOW ANNOUNCED!

THE SENTINEL is an independent animated project that is shaping up to be something really incredible. There’ll be a lot more info coming out in the next couple months, but in the meantime definitely take a gander at the beautiful art over on the production blog - I feel super lucky to get to work alongside these amazing artists, and you should definitely put your eyeballs all over their work *____*

This is silly and self-indulgent, but it’s been a long time since I’ve done any personal work, so I will indulge v___v

I’ve been working on digging up all the ivy and blackberries in the yard, with much gallant help from justinoaksford, and have been planting some new plants! Digging around in the dirt has definitely become one of my favorite things, and I spend a pretty absurd amount of my workday fantasizing about getting home and working on the garden. This started as a memory doodle earlier this afternoon - if I couldn’t be in the garden, at least I could draw it :P

Whaaaaaaaaa   t
