Hi!

I'm Karen, and I'm not actually active on here very much. Tend to post quite a spread of things when I do bother to pick up a pencil and draw.

Alright guys!! It's been a while. Sorry about that. How's everyone doing; how's life?
(I don't actually know how many of you are still active here? Good for you for sticking through it if you are.)

Anyway, I seem to have hit an Art Period, which drops me right out of my writing phase (I had a pretty good run! Which is why I haven't been on here) but allows me to actually draw things again! I think I want to get better at landscapes, maybe invertebrates, plants and the like... 

I'm heading off to uni on the 4th (September), and think I should have enough time and hopefully motivation to do more drawing whilst there. Whether I'll post those drawings or not is another question (will I have a scanner?? I don't know!) but I should?? be able to actually be online a bit and talk to peoplecomment on art?? That's the plan, anyway. We'll see how it goes.

Hope you're all well <3

It's my gal
My xbx Cross
She's called Collie and she's green and I love her
I think I'm getting better at drawing people? maybe? I don't know. Let's say I am. Good.

Xenoblade chronicles x is a good game (but not as god as xenoblade itself), Can Make Fun Characters, can have green skin. All good.
(Crit on human anatomy - or anything else - would be welcome!)

Peacock
Look at that?? I'm painting things that exist in real life?? Amazing.

We went down to Cambridge for a friend jaunt a few weeks ago, and visited a house with these huge gardens and peacocks - this is a splice of two photos (one of a birb and one of the landscape, funnily enough). I direct referenced for the sketch and then didn't ref at all for the colour, which was a Mistake because now all of the lighting is wrong and the colours are off. But that's fine. I did a proper painting for the first time in ages. Whoopee.

Lorithia
Love this horrible bird lady

Acrylic and watercolour paints on A4! Inspiration for Lorithia being alongside a lexos is from the Xenoblade novelisation created by one Seizeourdestiny on tumblr. It's well worth the read.
