light of marie

and have you ever felt for anything
such wild love–
do you think there is anywhere, in any language,
a word billowing enough
for the pleasure

that fills you,
as the sun
reaches out,
as it warms you

as you stand there,
empty-handed–
—  Mary Oliver, ‘The Sun’

“Anemonia Nightclub (lol!!)
Jokes aside, I watched the single player trailer for Splatoon2 and I just wondered how that scene would have been like if the game had a bit of an older audience target and more emphasis on cinematic somehow.

I might or might not explore that idea further; but it’s fun to imagine things like that as a storyboard artist :))”

I realized that at some point I had gotten tunnel vision and my eyes had gotten used to the dark; so the previous versions that had color were actually way too dark and I didn’t realize it x_x


So, thank you all again for your indulgence with my trial and error process. Have an agent 4 doodle as bonus too.

Sormik week day 6! Woohoo! I’m back.
No baby Sormiks this time, but have all the more fluff. This one is for @amarietie/ @tmariea for Storms in Our Blood. Today’s theme is “Lastonbell—Promises/Acceptance”, and although this scene indeed takes place in Elysia and has nothing to do with the Lastonbell promise, I figured the prompt was as good as any to do a marriage proposal.
I… I went over the top with the cheesiness, didn’t I? *hides*
The layers have fancy names to distract from the ridiculous romance going on here. Like “background panels”, background background”, “fucking rain”, “fucking lightning”, “rainy bits” and “rainy muchs”.

Anyway, I’m sorry this is so rushed, but I hope it gets the idea across just fine! I really really hope you like it, Mari! :,)
This is my little thanks for your kind words and deeds for me, and for your Earth Armatus Rose occasionally saving my ass in ToLink, hoho. HAPPY SEVERAL MONTHS LATE BIRTHDAY OR SOMETHING

For everyone else: go read the story, it includes more artistic use of seraphic artes, and more kisses in the rain, if that doesn’t convince you I don’t know what to tell you

My dearest Mary, if you are reading this, then you are leaving France to reclaim your Scottish throne. I always knew this day would come and I wish I could be at your side as you set sail to take back what is yours. In the darkest of times, you were my conscience. Your heart was a light, Mary, and it burned so very bright for France. No matter how far you go, that light will burn forever. I have left you a gift, something i made for you to fight for what is yours and for what you know in your heart is right. I love you, Mary Stuart. Forever.
