HAPPINESS

happiness_watermarkWOW! IT HAS BEEN A WHILE!
So, so sorry that I’ve disappeared for quite a long time! Between work and life stuffs, I haven’t time nor energy for artwork, so I’ve been away for about a year.

I’m still not fully back (can’t take commissions), but at the very least I wanted to start arting for myself again to work out all the rust I’ve accumulated since I’ve been away. My post today was inspired by a cute dog photo I saw on my Facebook feed one day:

Originally this wasn’t going to be a new version of feral Kaze that has been floating around in my head for months, but once I started to flesh this piece out, I just knew I had to draw feral Kaze in one of her more “canine” moments. (She is part husky after all. LOL!)

Markipillar

Markipillar_watermarkSo, this one has a story behind it.

I started watching Markipiler’s YouTube channel around a year ago, mostly because I was bored, lonely, and looking for some information on Five Nights at Freddy’s. Little did I know that I would become attached to Mark and his lovely, positive wisdoms. He has inspired me to continue to pursue what I love, despite my ever present depression and lack of motivation to continue. (I’m yet another hard working young person who made it through 4 years of college with an art degree and is not professionally working in their field because of lack of jobs and capital to be able to travel to where the jobs are.)

The idea for “Markipillar” came into my head when I first started watching Markiplier’s YouTube channel. I commonly mispronounce names, so I used to say his name as “Markipillar”. From then on, I would always imagine Markiplier in a caterpillar sleepingbag, pretending to be a caterpillar, and speaking similar positive wisdoms like he usually does. It made me giggle, and helped me get through my sad days.

Thank you, Markimoo. Continue to do what you do. ❤

COMMISSION: Erin M.

Erin M_Ava Frozen_Watermark

Commission for Erin M. of her 2 year old niece, Ava, dressed as Anna from Frozen. The dress isn’t exactly like Anna’s, as Anna’s dress was made to fit a teenage girl, so I combined Anna’s signature dress with her baby dress and made a combination dress. I think I did a pretty decent job. 🙂

COMMISSION: Ba’ar Bear

Image

Baar Bear Commission_watermarkCommission for Ba’ar Bear of his big black grizzly bear character lounging around on a nice, peaceful summer day.

Definitely a piece I was looking forward to, as it was different than the rest in this commission batch, as it it was not a night or dark scene. Can’t say I haven’t been following Ba’ar’s example this week, as I’ve been taking a little bit more time for myself than normal to relax and unwind from the constant pressures of work.

COMMISSION: Inner Phantom

Image

Trey Cuffed Commission_watermarkCommission for CrimzonPhoenix of Facebook of his character, a black wolf with blue tinted fur and blue eyes wearing military dog tags, wrestling with a phantom that resides in his head. It’s a very personal piece, and I’m glad I was able to take it on.

The image that I was given for the phantom looked very much like it was in the shape of a Haunter (Pokemon), which explains why the phantom in this image may look like a Haunter to some people. However, I tried to make the phantom more unique by adding fire, lava drool, molten rock teeth, and uniquely fiery red glowing eyes. I think by adding those features it made the phantom seem more sinister and it’s own unique being.

Also, I used A LOT of experimental techniques on this piece, and I think it came out rather well. 🙂
