February Double Date
painted… November 2011
Hee! The Sygnus fans got together and sekritly made a calender for Wren and Syn, and I drew February. You should see the other pages! They are completely fantastic and beautiful. I will probably link to the calender when it appears on Zazzle. I hope it’s available in Canada?
Gyoriing takes Layalin, and Zento takes YuKai on a double date. But Zento can’t help flirting with shy Layalin… Good thing everyone knows he’s not serious! : D
Zento was totally a creeper the first time I tried him: Not his fault, but hair just can’t go in front of his eyes. My fellow conspirators and I had a good laugh over that… but it also meant he was the last one to get finished, because he was being difficult. : P
Also if he had that expression on his face when talking to Layalin, he would probably get flattened by Gyoriing a half-second later…
Oh, and I also resized both my kalmaei and Wren’s Nefolians, because Gyoriing is 7’6″… Layalin is about 6’8″… and Zento is, what, 5’2″ and YuKai 4’10″??? That wouldn’t work at all! So sorta a little AU in that they are the same height frame. : D
I have been productive recently! I’ve been practicing music, and loving it. I think I’m almost recharged! And hopefully ready for another term of blah. Right now classes do not excite me. Practicing excites me! And also eggnog. And also knowing how to say ‘I love you’ in 5-6 languages. But yeah I have been doing lots of practicing and it feels great! I am also staying up way too late as a result, because while it tires me out, it wakes up my brain like whoa or something. I dunno. It’s 3 in the morning and I feel like it’s still 1 in the morning. Also I made apple crisp and it was not great but hey I made apple crisp that is exciting yeah? Oh, hei, where’d my punctuation go? I guess it’s really time for bed after all! XD
WHY CAN I NOT STOP LISTENING TO THIS SONG
NOT TO MENTION SINGING ALONG (with headphones and under my breath so as not to wake the housemate who has an 8:00 bus to a plane)
... I Know You’re Out There Somewhere: NaNoWriMo2011 – chapter 9
What do you think?
(Layalin and Gyoriing)
I cannot for the life of me do a ‘painting’ look. Dangit!

Click for insanity. Yeah, I kinda ran out of inspiration at the end… and one of the words is maybe not wholly PG, but some of them are not too bad. I like the one of Math defending me from EbilTam. Also the one where Flairé has to marry someone came out pretty much how I wanted it too, but the one of Flairé and Marteth camping I wish I’d been able to do better. Maybe I’ll just do it as a picture sometime.
So that’s what I’ve been doing instead of writing or anything useful.
If any of the panels aren’t clear, let me know so I can make it clear. : P
Bit of clarification anyway… Layalin isn’t joking when she says she’s going to die too – kalmaeirin elves have a heart condition that means they can literally break their hearts when they lose someone particularly dear to them. Of course, it would not be the fault of a car crash. : P

Working on the hilarious 10 character meme. You can probably guess at the answers if you know it already… but they might not be what you expect! I thought some of these turned out rather well. Probably stolen from Colby, but it’s been so long I’ve forgotten. I only just got around to it. : P
Also editting Chapter 2 of the novel. Split it into two chapters, so Tam’s moment of glory is now in Chapter 3. Chapter 2 is still veeeery rough. Not happy with most of it. I may need to chop it out and rewrite it by itself a few times. Wondering how Chapter 3 will go, since I’ve never written it before. Flaer made a long internal monologue about how useless anger is… and then flips out at a dragon for being stupid. What a silly boy.
What else? Um, not much. Obsessing unhealthily over my DevArt. Added like five bazillion pictures to my favourites. Guess I should add more of my own stuff. I think I will stick to colour stuff, because the pencil stuff is not so impressive. More or less. If there’s something on Adhemlenei you think I should post on DevArt, tell me. : P
Also dug up my Tour links again in preparation for a couple weeks from now… Go Andy! And Cadel! And Ryder! Okay, I guess I can wait until it actually gets going. It’s gonna be amazing on the new TV.

Layalin, the red-curly-haired princess of unicorns. I’m pretty sure this was originally for the bio page (it has details on the clothes! I never do that!) HOWEVER her arms are too long and her legs are too short. And I think she’s holding, like, a music scroll or something, but since we don’t necessarily know that it just looks like she’s scrunching up a roll of useless fabric.
Anyway. We have new windows. They will give greater insulation against heat and cold, AND we can actually open them all the way because they don’t stick and they have screens! Hooray!
Also I played two dungeons in Ocarina of Time, and I’m about to draw my submission to the Wayrift Lunar contest. And a “Hard Fairy”, which is a piece for saxophone and two pianos, but I’m going to draw a punk fairy, too. I did an awesome drawing of Menad today, but it’s in my keyboard lit notes, so it might be a while before you see it. Which reminds me I think I want to separate my sketch dumps into individual pictures so it’s easier to find things in them. : P
