Ok so I’m thinking of trying something a bit different and branching out but I kinda wanna gauge interest first. I’m thinking of writing a fanficition. It would be an ongoing project and likely be pretty lengthy. Gonna be upfront updates would likely be infrequent because of my other real life commitments even though I already have the story planned out. What is this story going to be about you ask? Well the best fanfiction I find (in my personal opinion) are ones that fill in the gaps of the already pre established story. So I was thinking of doing a fanfic about Silver Fullbuster, his missions with Tartaros, and how he developed demon slaying magic. Moreover, the dilemnas he must have had to face in order to gain the demon’s trust and become a demon gate. I’ll likely title it Silver Trails after that one Spin Off about Gray leaving Ur to go to Fairy Tail called Ice Trails. It would take place between the time of Silver’s “Death” up to the time that he meets up with Gray again. Yep pretty long span of time. So what do you think? Yay? or Nay?
This was just a really quick image I managed to put together. I wanted to try doing something a little different from what I usually draw. I feel like I’ve kind of gotten myself stuck in this rut where I just draw the same poses over and over again. I’ve been desperately trying to get out of it, and after acquiring more than a (roughly) 3.5in x 4in x 2in box of 2in x 3.5in slips of paper after creating our business cards in Visual Communications, I figured I would use those as kind of a way to try a few different things. I’ve got a few doodles that I’m working on with these slips of paper and am eager to share them with you all once they are finished. I’ve almost completed the commission piece I’ve been working on for so long and I’m excited to get to share all that work with everyone as well. For now, here’s this image.
I haven’t drawn TemT in such a long time, so it was nice to dust off this character. He deserves some more development- One more thing to add to my mile-long to-do list. I honestly can’t really explain my inspiration for this piece as I simply do not remember what drove me to create this. All I can remember about the moment where I came up with this was it was this past Friday in Visual Comminucations class. We were doing an exam review in Adobe Illustrator, and I was working on a different piece of the same size I believe. We had just started a ten-minute break when I began the sketch. Either that or finished the sketch, my whole memory is kind of fuzzy. The paper was starting to peel as I was layering on the darker colours, but it doesn’t look like that showed up too well in here, so that’s good.
For those who are following my other social medias, you may recognise this image, and even more so, the boarder around it. Well, I liked it so much in the preview image, I sent a plain dark purple .png file into Pixlr, inserted the same galaxy-patterned overlays as I used in the preview, then included that green/blue boarder and laid it underneath the finished piece in Clip. I think this went pretty well actually. If anyone would like me to create a tutorial on how I actually go about editing images in Pixlr, be sure to leave a comment below addressing it!
the world as we know it has ended and mother nature starts taking back what’s hers. there are no zombies or cannibals or murderous bandits. the most valued members of the community are those who know how to garden and farm, sew and weave, treat wounds, work wood or build with bricks, cook from scratch.
people bond together to begin rebuilding instead of killing each other. everyone teaches each other whatever they do know and works together to figure out the stuff none of them know. books become incredibly valued resources because they’re often the only way to learn critical information. if someone is elderly, disabled, or otherwise unable to work at the same level as most of the community, they’re taken care of by the others, not told any sort of “survival of the fittest” bs.
as the generations ware on, communities begin expanding into small cities. some of the settlements even find ways to repurpose solar or wind power on a small scale and have electricity in some of their buildings. storytellers wander the countryside telling tales of the old world in return for some hot stew or a place to rest for the night, and the mythos of the new world start to incorporate elements of the past. the only thing that remains constant is that humans survive, and they do it by working together.
