The beast towered
over me, perched on its clawed toes, its twisted and ugly flesh
covered in layers of sharp, smooth black carapace. It looked oily.
Monstrous. It had horns on its head and beady, glowing eyes that bore
into mine and seemed so familiar. As familiar as a mirror.
soooo this is kinda late but it’s here anyway? decided to switch up my monthly layout bc i wasn’t really using the boxes in my calendar. i like this since it gives me so much more room to be creative and doodly and i also don’t have to take 10 years drawing lines. i also completely screwed up one of the hibiscus flowers but eh. also, look at my (mom’s) pretty garden! xoxo, m
ps. why does tumblr always make my photos blurry… sigh.
For the longest time I wanted to do a matching romance card for Feyrien. Based off of Cassandra’s. Didn’t want him to be all fancy and just have him look at his most natural. I really pushed myself out of my comfort zone with this one. (god tumblr why do you make everything so blurry)
I got a new tablet and figured the best way to break it in was redrawing the first ever picture of Spirit! Looking at old art makes me shudder I remember when I drew him the first time I didn’t have a tablet at all so I had to draw it on paper then take a picture, then trace over it with my trackpad on my computer XD
I still have a lot to learn and work on, but it feels good seeing how much I’ve improved in just over a year!
how do you get your sim photos looking so sharp? mine always turn out looking blurry when i post them :(
ok so there’s two reasons that might be, is the photo less than 540px wide? if so that means tumblr is stretching the photo and that’s why it’s blurry… if it’s more than 540px wide it’s just a thing tumblr does sometimes it happens to a lot of people and i have no idea how to fix it :’-( it’s happened to me a few times too!
The first image is in black and white. It shows John from behind, walking away. Only his torso and head are in the frame. The caption reads “We’ve reached the crossroads of what makes truth and lies”.
The second image shows John’s face when he was a kid, and his face when he worked for the CIA. The one on the left side was taken from the scene of his father’s funeral. His face is sad. The one on the right side was taken from a scene where he convicts a corrupt soldier. His face looks dark, the lighting makes it appear like a scull. The caption says “Tell me what your secret is”.
The next three pictures show the faces of Jessica, Joss, and Iris while they look at John.
The caption for the one with Jessica is “No more time will pass by, we need to draw the line, the words you never said now begin to fade away”.
On the one with Joss, the caption reads “No excuses this time, we need to draw the line, the act is slowly fading, it’s time to step in the spotlight”.
The caption for the one with Iris reads “You have a way of hiding everything in your life, it’s not too late to escape this fate, tell me what your secret is”.
The fifth picture shows John during his hallucination, caused by hypothermia. He sits in his car with Joss. His profile is shown through a hole in the front side window. Joss sits on the passenger seat, her face is blurred. She looks at him. The caption reads “This is your crossroad, this is where your secrets die”.
The last image shows Harold and John from behind, sitting on a bench at the Brooklyn Bridge. The caption says “Out of time, when your life was on the line, when you start to see the signs, don’t let go, just let your wings unfold”. End description.]
