my eyes look cool in this

I’m interested to know what Roxy would have thought of Rose had she been able to grow up with her- as it was, Roxy longed for her company and inexorably idolized her, but actually knowing someone who’s cool is different from just reading about them.

In a scenario where Rose was able to raise her, what would she think? My instinct is mostly that Roxy openly loves her mom a lot still, and looks up to her, but with a healthy dose of rolling her eyes sometimes at Rose’s dramatics, or pretending she’s uncool in certain situations. 

Roxy in canon really hoped it was true that Rose was a practitioner of some dark magyks and had a lot of money that didn’t rightfully belong to her, but maybe if they grew up together, some of this would make her uneasy, and she’d urge Rose to stop. 

I have little doubt that alpha Rose would behave the same way when entering the sburb session as her beta counterpart- she’d blow through the game, wreaking havoc while trying to protect her daughter. Roxy just shrugs like, “well that’s my mom, you know?” and thinks it’s half cool and half infuriating.

On left: Comic / Art style when I was 12-13 years old ; On right: Comic / Art style now that I’m 20 years old.

I was sifting through some pretty old files and I found pages of an old comic I worked on when I was way younger. It’s pretty cool to see the difference between my style then to how much I’ve improved tbh. Back then I thought I’d never master the sideview or give my characters unique enough features but eventually through practice and looking at references I managed to get into the swing of it!!

To all the artists who follow me, here’s your daily reminder not to give up on your art! That hand may be a bitch to draw or maybe you have trouble getting their eyes just right but don’t give up - You can only get better at your craft after all!

Tag me in your own art / improvement comparisons because I’d LOVE to see them!!

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.

We throw around the word never likes its nothing but a small rose petal. The word never is a doubled edged sword. On one side it says ‘I will never leave you’ and on the other it says ‘I will never love you.’
