Wouldn’t it be nice if coffee really did solve nearly every problem?!?

For the background, I used brown acrylic paint and a Rollagraph stamp. I had screenprinted the big purple coffee cup ages ago. Collaged with Liquitex matte medium and Golden matte soft gel (for heavier things, such as the coffee sleeve across the top of the page).

my favorite few minutes of every day. when darkness dances with last light and the world is bathed in the embers of a brief romance. a small, almost inaudible sigh of the breeze as the gold fades into deep blues and greens. a moment of soft resignation as the light is swallowed whole, to reemerge as holes from a pin in the dark sky.

Get to know: Syrena Kalihd

(art by @nipuni​ <3 )

What is your character’s full name?: Syrena (formerly X’rena) Kalihd

➥ Do they have any brothers or sisters?: She has one older brother, and had a twin brother (now deceased).
➥ What kind of eyes do they have?: One gold, the other green, both mischievous as hell. 
➥ What kind of hair do they have?: The colour straddles the line between golden brown and auburn. It’s waist length and hopelessly messy; the texture is quite fine and flyaway, and if it were brushed out neatly it’d fall in loose silky waves…but it never is.
➥ What is their complexion like?: Medium golden brown. She has faint freckles across her nose and cheeks from sun exposure, as is common for Seekers.
➥ What body type are they?: Tall for a female miqo’te, with most of the length coming from her legs. She’s fairly toned, as you’d expect from a dancer, but has a decently large bust and an indecently large behind, with thick thighs to match.
➥ What is listening to their voice like?: Low, husky, and with a bit of a rasp. She’s excitable and so usually speaks pretty fast, smooshing her words lazily together instead of enunciating clearly. 
➥ What do they hate most about themselves?: Syr has next to zero self-loathing, and a fairly large ego. The closest it gets to her hating something about herself is a frustration with her tendency to put up walls; she’s been hurt a lot in the past and so despite loving people and wanting to be close to them, she very rarely opens up the softer sides of herself and most people just get the outward fun excitable showboat parts of her…which means she’s quite lonely, given that she feels there are very few people who really know and appreciate her FULLY. 
➥ Do they have a favorite quote?:  "Nice things are nicer when shared.”
➥ What sort of music do they enjoy?: Anything with a good beat, or anything played with passion.
➥ Have/would they ever cheat(ed) on a partner?: No.
➥ Have they been cheated on by a partner?: No.
➥ Have they ever lost someone close to them?: Yes.
➥ What is their favorite sound?: The brush of bare feet on a smooth floor. Or Braden groaning her name.
➥ Are they judgmental of others?: Generally not. She takes everyone at face value unless they give her reason to believe otherwise. 
➥ Have they ever been drunk?: She has been, but rarely drinks to excess.
➥ What are they like when they stay up all night?: Dozy, lethargic, and absentminded until the sun comes up. Once the sun’s up, she switches into hyperactive and peppy – almost an overcompensation for how exhausted she is.
➥ Have they ever been arrested?: Almost, for theft. She was new to the city and didn’t quite understand that food has to be paid for, so she was just taking it – where she grew up, what little food they had was shared freely. She was let off with a warning, but the idea of paying for food is still something she considers extremely strange.
What evokes strong memories for them?: Rain. Having her hair braided by someone else. Painting on her skin. A small blown-glass windchime which hangs in her bedroom.

➥ What do they do on rainy days?: Cower, mostly. Stay in bed if she can, piled around with as many blankets and pillows as possible to block out the sound.
➥ What religion are they?: She isn’t particularly religious, but believes in the Twelve and her tribe worshipped Azeyma.
➥ What word or phrase do they overuse the most?: There isn’t anything in particulaaaar. She has a proclivity towards puns, does that count?
➥ What do they wear to bed?: Nothing.
➥ Do they have any tattoos or piercings?: Her ears are pierced, as is her navel. She doesn’t have any tattoos and doesn’t want any, but is extremely fascinated with them on others. 
➥ What type of clothing are they most comfortable in?: She’s happiest with her stomach bared.
➥ What is their most disliked food?: Sandworm. She’ll happily eat anything else – she isn’t a picky eater in the slightest. She’ll still eat sandworm if it’s placed in front of her, but will scrunch up her face and choke it down with zero enjoyment.
➥ Do they have any enemies?: She views the current nunh of her former tribe as one, though he wouldn’t consider her an enemy and would welcome her back with open arms.  
➥ What does their writing look like?: She can’t read or write.
➥ What disgusts them?: People who treat others like objects, and people who fight using poison.
