There's no truly effective way to say "I know it's been ages since I've updated and all, but I randomly have drawbles and you're the only people I want to share it with because I love you and miss you and wish I was on here all the time instead of having a job". So I'm just going to post these and hope that a) everyone in the LJ world is doing well and enjoying HP7.2/all other wonderful pursuits of happiness and b) you all enjoy the impromptu results of a work trip to San Antonio where I met up with the brilliant and beautiful pennswoods
We basically conspired to meet up for lunch while I was in Texas for a conference, and pennswoods
was able to quickly ask her flist for prompts in the event she and I could get in some artses. Luckily, we were able to get it in before I left for DC and she left for China!
I have to say, that meet-up encapsulates everything I love about the LJ fandom community. pennswoods
and I had not even had a chance to speak in over a year, yet we were able to pick back up our super awesome friendship like no time had passed at all. What a truly magnificent thing.
On to the drawbles:Title:
"Flight from Gringotts" for major_dallasMedium:
Pen on paperNotes:
The anatomy's all wrong, of course. I foolishly started drawing humans before I realized I might not have enough paper to draw the dragon. But as a drawble, it's fun. And major_dallas
, I hope to do a legit one of these for you soon!( Collapse )Title:
"Molly's Remorse" for dragonsinger954Medium:
Pen on paperNotes:
Intrigued by the backstory potential here. dragonsinger954
's prompt stated: "Molly... when she realized she had actually killed someone? Even if it was to protect her family?" So I played a bit with the dark expression on Molly's face for a while... and Bellatrix sort of became a comedic afterthought. :)( Collapse )
And that's about all for now. I'm working on implementing a few changes in my life that may help me get on LiveJournal a little more in the months ahead. I miss writing and sharing and drawing and all those things that qualify as self-expression, and considering how long I've gone without doing any of the above... I'm surprised my head is remotely screwed on straight right now.
So until I've got the particulars sorted out on the time management front, I wish you all a wonderful end of summer. Cheers!
