my favorite waterfalls

colored and finished piece from this sketch i did last night! i have a ton of work to do, but i wanted to do one more fun personal piece before i dive into technical work! it’s available in pretty huge sizes in my society6!!

i love messing around with color palettes and making my colored stuff just that borderline of “my goodness this could probably be a little less vibrant couldn’t it”

Fields of flowers. Drinks with good company. Amazing coffee and chocolate covered espresso beans. Watching the sunrise over Crater Lake. Rounding corners that open up to fields of horses grazing and rolling green hills. Acres of pine trees, densely packed and covered in moss. Deer traipsing through the woods, a young fawn following his older brother. Countless waterfalls. Hearing the ocean outside my tent. Ending the day around a campfire. 

Oregon, you’ve been amazing.

The Legacy of Emperor Tsao

Emperor Tsao’s short reign was unremarkable by the standards of the ordinarily bloodthirsty mogu dynasties, notable mostly for administrative reorganization.

He did, however, leave a lasting legacy to the pandaren people. By imperial edict, pandaren slaves were permitted to read, write, and establish their own schools.

While many mogu monuments were removed after the revolution, Emperor Tsao’s likeness remains here on the coast, greeting the sun every morning and looking over the people he helped to save.

Took him to one of my favorite hidden waterfalls,
I had been there a hundred times but he never had.
It never dawned on me, when I went there alone, to strip and swim in the icy water.
Glacial, frigid. 
We did it anyways, he picked me up, wrapped my legs around his waist and we waded in.
Summer skin and warm in each other’s songs.
