Day 91: Chibi Korra

The last episode of The Legend of Korra airs tonight! It's a show my daughter and I have watched a LOT over the last few years so it's sad to see it come to an end. Goodbye amazing show! Goodbye fun strong female protagonists! Goodbye that strange urge to learn karate once a week!

Day 90: Galadrielish

She started off as Galadriel then I forgot the elven ears and the hair turned blue, so...

Funny story about blue hair! The first art student I tutored was 10 years old. I was showing her a few of my sketches and she asked, "Why does everyone have blue hair?" And I said, "Well, I think brown hair is pretty boring. I mean, you see it around every day. It's fun to see something different, right?" And she flipped through the gobs of blue haired people in my sketchbook and replied, "Well, if everyone you draw has it, it's not that different, is it?"

Well said, overly-perceptive-for-her-age 10-year-old. Well said.

Day 89: Oh, my hippocampus...

I commandeered the whiteboard in the middle of Preston's attempts at visually explaining the nociceptive processes of the brain. He soldiered ahead. It's been a long night.

Day 86: Toof-airy

Savin asked if I was drawing the tooth fairy. I said yes. She sighed and said, "Well...I guess that *kinda* looks like her" with a tone that clearly indicated otherwise.

Ah well.

Day 84: Landa Calrissian

Let's not kid ourselves: would anything really have changed if Lando Calrissian was a woman? I submit to you: no. It would have been awesome. Mustache or not.

Back on track, part two! No more breaks!

Day 82: More more more dolls

More dolls...I know this isn't the most exciting part of 365characters, but it's all I have in me to do this modicum of art today. Hope to return to pen and paper once all these potters are done.

Day 81: He sees you when you're slacking...

So I really tried to not take a break this year of daily drawings (I sure as heck took them fast and furious last time) but the end of November got nuts all of a sudden and I needed a breather. But! We're back on track and as you can see, the dolls are still monopolizing the brunt of my create-o-time. Which is great! Dolls mean work! Work means someone likes my art enough to give me something for it! What more validation can I ask for, honestly?

Here's Santa! I sent off another one of these a few days ago and in my hastily typed note, I accidentally wrote: "Thank you for your purchase! Satan is on his way." Better watch out, indeed!

Day 79: Sunday Selfie: Ladytaur on the go

Ladytaur is busy, Ladytaur is on the run, Ladytaur doesn't have time for your questions regarding who she is, what she does and why her proportions are so off, okay? Give Ladytaur some space and leave a message with her assistant like a normal human being!
