Amy liked the painting! [dances] Most wonderful is that she recognised the place immediately ("We ate lunch there, I remember") and even the time ("That was on the hike where you injured your knee!"). I was amazed!

Just some ideas floating around during my thesis and recent Scrabble daze, and one painting in progress. The painting's for Amy, one part of her birthday present...and I don't think she's been checking livejournal lately so I think it's safe to post it. ^^ If you are Amy, you shouldn't click on the link until after August 5th!

Really image heavy under the cut. ^^

A lot of 2005 stuff's in sketchbooks. I think this is about all I have soft copies of, at the moment!

Surprisingly, I found a drawing of Rikku (FFX) which I drew for someone known as Bai at the Final Fantasy Online forums. It was for an avatar exchange, which turned into more of an art exchange (she drew me an utterly beautiful version of Delirium). Anyway, she was a fan of Rikku so I pounced on it. ^^

Sure, it's 2am and I'm not altogether here, but since I'm not doing what I'm supposed to be doing, I may as well do something vaguely productive. I realised a lot of these works are still in my sketchbook, unscanned. So for now, a few that some people may already have seen.

Since she has received the hard copies of these drawings a while ago (February), perhaps it's time to archive them here. ^^

These are characters from [ profile] mithrigil's Liberi Tenebri (The FFVIII Gender-reversals Study): Zyll, Lanky, and Ivrie (i.e. a gender reversed Zell, Selphie, and Irvine, respectively). I daresay her retelling is better than the game itself. But anyway, she baked and sent me some wonderful cookies- TWICE!- and this was the least I could do in return.

The archiving continues! So does the cringing!

I thought I should begin to move these old pieces from my defunct archive to this more current one.

Note: For [ profile] ff_exchange (original post here.) a little gift for [ profile] justira. ^^ A past Postsecret card gave me the impetus.

A small moment in which Squall takes an small step forward... )

One sketch- a draft for a better version, possibly! This is just something I drew on the spur of the moment, ~15 mins. Comments and criticisms always welcome. ^^

First are some pen sketches that I did while sitting around in Norway. The last was done today; I was aiming to look more closely at tone, trying to make the face more three-dimensional. Since I'm still not home, the image quality is lower as I have no scanner. ;_; Any commentary/critiques are welcome, as usual!

she asks, how are you?
blood grimed under fingernails
he says things went fine.

he keeps his head down,
stumbles past outstretched caress;
those hands can’t touch her.

the heat is stifling.
soak, lather, rinse, lather, rinse;
it is not enough.

Drawing on the Tube or while flomping around a friend's house is soothing and very enjoyable! I also need a new ink pen. XD The old faithful has been run down!

The first drawing in my new A5 sketchbook! Project: face and figure live studies. Take the sketchbook everywhere and draw people, particularly on the Tube! I need to improve. ;_;

It was your kind of weather today,
full of skinbiting chill and umbrella turning.
But you're not the kind the winter owns;
no sullen boy nor sombre child.

Some faces and live figure drawing I did for practice (<10 mins each). The charcoal sketches were done a little while ago. The conte sketches were done today, and are an attempt to look more carefully at tone and figure proportions. Guhh, I need to keep at this because my figure drawing is in dire need of improvement. ^^ If there's any suggestions from artists out there, please, feed me your sekrits! [dies from fixative fumes]

Our gazes slink through the glass,
darting around each other’s pasts
sidestepping what could have been in another turn of the wheel
sliding over what we might have become.

I fix my eyes on my companion, resolute
until your sidelong stare disappears behind glass.
I have two minds: one for beyond-the-glass
and one for conversation-in-here.
A hand to shield the straying eye is helpful, but not enough.

If the wheel had turned another way, my gaze wouldn’t slip
and my words wouldn’t run and falter.
We’d just be two strangers in a café,
our errant gazes loud, sauntering, signifying nothing.

Drabblepoem- 100 words. I'm quite terrible at poems; they refuse to cooperate with me. And re-reading this, it seems like my unconscious aim was to avoid adverbs. XD
