HEAD-CANNON TIME: In which Marinette kicks ass, and Chat Noir looses his heart~

older!Chat Noir is running a random patrol on the rooftops, by himself, and notices trouble is afoot down below. Being a part of Paris’ great duo, he drops down to end it. One way or another, he looses his staff/baton and it’s getting pretty serious. Just when things look like they could go south, someone else picks up his weapon and joins the fight. And they kick some serious butt.

He turns to thank the stranger, and sees it’s none other than older!Marinette Dupain-Cheng. And he can’t believe it. He watches as she takes down the other evil-doers with ease. He tries to say something, to save face or say something cool, but nothing comes out. He’s speechless, and his heart is beating way too fast. She’s amazing, and beautiful, and fearless, and howdidheneverseethisbefore. And Marinette can’t help but poke fun at him a little when they’re done, laugh beautifully and ask if he’s OK. And he’s completely and absolutely love-struck.

OK see, this is why I draw instead of write, HAHA. But this idea just wouldn’t leave me alone, and I had a lot of fun with it. May color this later too. And I think I’m finding out my favorite ML ship is MariChat. BECAUSE I LOVE THESE SINNAMON ROLLS.

IT’S DONE IT’S DONE IT’S DONE. I’m so happy with it, but I’m so insanely tired right now. Over 20 hours in two days. But I think they both turned out well, especially Zuko. Hopefully I’ll be able to make this into a print soon. Thanks for all your input guys, I really appreciate it. And now it’s BEDTIME.

BTW- I really think adorkable Zuko is well, adorable. I can only imagine what’s going through his head right now. (And someone should totally write a fic about this. I’d adore you.) ZUTARA FOREVER!

I’ve been swamped with art-jobs/ongoing commissions and I needed a break! And my break from art was…to do more art?…

……It was pretty much just an excuse to draw some older!Marichat. I am trash.

Chat Noir is happily getting some much needed pets and chin scratches while he’s cuddling embracing LOVING holding Mari, who is currently playing Pokemon on her DS. He hasn’t noticed that she’s been quite distracted herself ;) I suppose it could be in the same timeline as my other Marichat piece?

This doodle style has apparently clicked with me, so I may do more of it? Hm.

ENJOY THE SHAMELESS MARICHAT.

WHY MUST ALL MY SHIPS BE FULL OF ANGSTY FEELS?!

I just recently re-discovered Soul Eater, and sweet LORD do I SHIP THESE TWO HARD. Soul and Maka are so perfect for each other, dorks <3

I’ve been absorbing a lot of SoMa fics this last week (especially since I was sick), so I figured I should at least draw something?? It’s super simple, but I like it, soooo I’m gonna leave it~ (Also if you have any fic recs you should totally send them my way cause haha what is a life)

MAKA GURL YOU FELL HAAAAARD. ;)

“All we are is skin and bones - trained to get along. Forever going with the flow…but you’re friction.” - Taylor Swift’s “Treacherous”

Tasertricks for EVERYONE! :)

Can I just say that these two were more fun to draw than I had originally planned? So instead of a sketch you got lines…that I will probably color…eventually? I fully blame this on all the Darcy/Loki fics I’ve been reading lately. SO ADDICTIVE.

Loki might be God of Mischief, but he’s never met anyone quite like the Queen of Tasers. The world may not yet be ready.

“Only you can set my heart on fire, yeah, on fire…what are you waiting for?” Ellie Goulding’s “Love me like you do”

Back in January I had signed up for @marichat-traaash‘s Valentine exchange, and I got @sarahcada as my Valentine! I sneakily asked her a few weeks ago which of the ML Four Square ships was her favorite, and I found out it’s LadyNoir! SO YOU GET SOME LADYNOIR FOR VALENTINE’S DAY!

Head-canon? I imagined this being post reveal, older!LadyNoir. They just kicked some akuma’s butt, and are having a celebratory moment on a roof at sunset ;) I like this enough that I might turn it into a print or bookmark or something later? We’ll see~

HAVE A HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE! And enjoy the picture you lovely sinners ;)

“This hope is treacherous, this daydream is dangerous. This hope is treacherous, I-I-I like it. ” - ‘Treacherous’ by Taylor Swift

You can tell by Loki’s smirk he’s up to no good. Or maybe Darcy’s up to no good, and he’s a bit proud? Either way, I ship these two so hard it’s not even funny <3 The God of Mischief is backing up his Queen of Tasers!

My first Loki/Darcy pic, and I have to say - I am beyond pleased with this! I drew the lineart a while ago ok wow January lol and just got around to coloring it. I decided I really wanted to color this in a semi art nouveau style! I’m a HUGE Mucha fan, and wanted to give a go at it. It was a bit daunting, but I think I managed a nice blend of both it and my own style~

I have prints of this up for sale in my Etsy and Storenvy stores, and will have it up on Society 6 tomorrow! (And if you remember my previous post - there’s a sale for a limited time on my Society 6, read and check it out!)

Hope you enjoy it! Night all <3

Thank you all so much! And many kudos to @miraculousturtle for giving me great input when I kept getting stuck with the design! Enjoy~

It’s been a while since I posted some Miraculous Ladybug, so I thought I’d post some WIPs of two I’ve been working on <3

Some Marichat on the left and Adrienette on the right! The right is inspired by @miraculousturtle‘s He’s Not a Siren fic, WHICH IS THE BEST THING EVER AND YOU NEED TO GO READ IT IF YOU HAVEN’T YET! (I can call it Adrienette even though he’s a merman, right??)

I’m actually stuck on how I wanna finish both. The Marichat, if I wanna shade it, add a background…I’m not sure? I dunno if I’m digging the colors of her shirt yet either…and I’m stuck on the Adrienette’s background HAHA.

Smitten Adrien/Chat is apparently my jam :3

ZUTARA LINEART IS DONE. I hope Katara’s clothes are believable. Both are supposed to be around 20ish, so I figured she’d need something more age appropriate? Zuko’s firelord outfit was altered a little bit again, added a few more details and swirlies, and ended up scrapping the cape. I don’t particularly like the topnot look, so thus his hair remains down :)

BUT - I did incorporate his crown in to the HAND DRAWN UMBRELLA. Pretty nifty and fire-nationy. I was going to cover it in turtleducks, because howfuckingadorable would that be, but I don’t think it’d do well for the Firelord to walk around with small animals on his umbrella. I want Katara’s boots.

Let’s see if I can get this colored tonight? And if I’ll hate myself in the morning for going so detailed.

WOAH! Art out of NOWHERE! LOL. *cackles*

For Christmas my super-awesome husband got me one of those adult coloring books. And when I was taking a break from the coloring, I decided to do more coloring in between? Of the Zutara variety. I was on a marker run, and it was the tail end of Zutara week and I really wanted to contribute this year! And then I post this like 3 weeks later LOL

I did the mermaid!Katara one first, because she’s sooooo much fun to draw and I haven’t for a while. (And I always like showering @bulletproofteacup in mermaid goodness <3) Then came Zuko, in all his brooding seriousness. And then I realized I didn’t draw his hands far enough apart for what I wanted to do with the fire. So er…yeah.

Maybe I’ll do more of these? They’re simple, but fun :) All done in ballpoint pen and Crayola and Roseart markers~ And then my scanner breaks down, so I have to use my printer-scanner to scan this *grumbles*

I had a couple free minutes in between commissions and sticker orders, so I thought I would do a mermaid!Zutara doodle…and it almost turned in to a full out drawing. Almost. Posting all three versions because I like them all, but I think the second is the best?

Zuko should know by now you can’t tell a mermaid you got her something and not expect her to be just a little curious. She just wants a better look, haha <3

This is dedicated to  bulletproofteacup and beanaroony, because they always keep me inspired by their Zutara goodness on my dash and I totally wish I had a fraction of their awesomeness~

And in the spirit of giving and receiving and being thankful with your loved ones, Happy Holidays everyone!!! :)

“Enervate is a spell that is used to restore a person to consciousness especially if he/she has been stunned.”

OMFG. DONE. IT’S DONE. I DREW FOR 12 AND A HALF HOURS STRAIGHT TO FINISH THIS. I’m exhausted, but it was so worth it. I think this is the best piece I’ve done to date! And featuring Dramione, of course <3 Please full view in high-rez.

I’ve been considering making this a poster, and I think I will with how well this turned out. Stay tuned for more info on that if you’re interested ;) But for now…bed time. I’ll post this on dA tomorrow. Night shippers <3

THIS IS NOW FOR SALE! Check out my Store Envy page and buy it before the pre-order runs out! Plus, with pre-ordering you get a free Dramione bookmark~

WHY AM I UP DRAWING AT 6AM.

A SessKag sketch I’ve had in my head for a while now. Lots of things to fix, but I’m liking where it’s going. Hopefully I’ll get to ink it soon, eh? I’m still torn between leaving Sesshomaru in a mens kimono or putting him back in his normal attire and armor *sigh*

There is a song behind this one, if you want hear the inspiration for it (and where it’s going). Sorry for the photo quality, my phone is grumpy.

(BTW- I blame youkaiyume for my SessKag addiction - her beautiful art got me addicted to them long, long ago. You should go check her art out <3)

You know those times when inspiration just hits? Yeah, this was one of those. I’m just sitting there, minding my own business and packing up boxes, and then this happened.

I guess I felt like drawing Prince Zuko? A more realistic version, I ‘spose.

I hate how much better my sketches turn out than my time-consuming drawings.

Sorry if the scan isn’t good, my scanner is already packed so I had to use the one in my printer/scanner thing.

Why Granger? See something you like? lulz

I really…have no idea where this came from. I suppose I can blame the Draco and Hermione here on Tumblr? When Hermione first started the deal of working for Draco, one of the very first days she ran into him in only a towel after a shower. She was upset, and he mentioned she blushed very badly.

BTW, I suck at dialog. If you think you can come up with something better, here’s the wordless version ;) http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a375/Tae-/dramione2dn.png Let me see what you guys can come up with!
