Two ladies for a story that popped into my mind.
They are both magicians but did some pretty criminal stuff and were banned from the magic society for it. To escape their fate (criminal magicians get their magic power taken away) they flee across the whole world and earn their money by doing magic shows that are quite awful because they do mistakes on purpose so that people don’t get suspicious. Tall one does the tricks and tiny one is the assistant.
Happy birthday, Chala <3 !
Let’s have a fantastic spring/summertime this year, yeah?
I just finished reading Noragami 6 and this series kills me. I love the characters’ relationships so much.
I do little water colour drawings to fill my portfolio with (and to sell the originals on daWanda), but today’s piece turned out to look an awfully lot like me and I swear it wasn’t even intended. Creepy.
Someone wished for Harry Potter!me uwu.
Guess I’m a Gryffindor and a nerd for astronomy.
Thanks for participating <3!
Happy birthday, Ymir!
Apparently there have been people who told you it would have been better if you never existed, but I hope you know that’s utter bullshit.
I was doing important stuff but then I listened to Avenue Q and this happened.
I love Armin, and I love polar expedition AUs.
Young Mr. Arlert tries to reach the far north in a time when everybody else thinks it’s a suicide mission without any hope of success. Only a few reckless men and women are brave enough to accompany him (among him one called Eren who finally found a glorious purpose worth risking his life for).
Tried out a new colouring technique and I rather like it uwu !

It makes me really happy to see this development.
Not because it shows that I got “better at drawing” - which I of course did, but if you only compare those pictures by correct anatomy or perspective, or other things you might think of when you think about “art improvement” I didn’t really improve much in that in the last years (on the contrary, I even chose to neglect those).
But I am happy to see that my art developed along my own personality. I can see my younger selfs in all of those pictures. There were times I was really happy about my artstyle and times I wasn’t. Times I tried out new things, times I tried too hard to draw like someone else, times I was bursting with creativity. I can see the circumstances or artists that influenced me. How starting to study Design/Illustration in 2009 influenced me.
I’m happy because I found a style (or rather several ones, it still varies a lot actually) that fits the person I am now and that I really love doing. And to come to the point that made those before me make their posts: I am very very grateful for all the people that encouraged me to go on! My girlfriend, my friends, my fellow students, my teachers and professors, my family and every single person on the internet who ever commented on my work.
I’m happy I once was 4 and started to love drawing. I’m happy I was once 14 and made up embarassing self-insert Harry Potter stories and drew horrible Marauders fanart, looking at an awful “Drawing Manga made easy”-book that my sister gave to me, colouring with really bad water colour pencils on shitty paper, admiring all those other HP-fanartists I found on the internet with their computer colorations and copic markers. And I would have been happy to know that around 10 years later I’ll have a B.A. in Design, have my first works printed in books you can actually buy in a bookstore, work as a graphic designer in a big publishing house, mastered not only water colours and copic markers, but also various graphic programs I would never have dreamed of.
And that was all just possible because I never stopped drawing.
So that’s my simple advice to all aspiring artists: Just do what you love to do and never give up uwu !
