Grandfather by lostdesertfan
Grandfather
Went to see Kubo and the Two Strings the other day, and it was far better than anticipated! Stunning film; beautifully animated, wonderful characters, full of emotion. 

Apologies for picture quality; phone photos and then over-editing are my friends :p

Pen and pencil on black paper.

For those of you who care! Given how inactive I've been, it's more than okay if you don't. It's been quite a while. I do miss talking to the lot of you :/

*First off - whether this'll come as a surprise or not I'm not sure, but I'm very much nb and have been for a while. I don't reckon gender issues make much difference online. Possibly more relevent is the fact that I'm mostly going by Alyn rather than Karen now. The exception to this is family and old friends, who are more than welcome to call me whatever they want. Pretty much all of you fall into the latter category, so don't stress either way, but I'd be extremely happy if you'd use they/them pronouns rather than she. If you're not up for gender neutral pronouns, hey, he works wonders too.

*Uni! University is a thing that is actually happening, in real life, and although I've been here a month I am still so pumped. I'm studying chemisty and physics in a really good uni located in a really chill wee town, and I love it. Living away from home is probably the best thing that has happened to me, funnily enough - I love being in charge of what I eat (and am eating more healthily than I ever did at home!) and everything here is new and lovely. The people I live with (we share a corridor and kitchen, & I have a roommate) are all absolutely amazing and I am very, very happy. 

*Unfortunately activity-wise, uni is Not Good For Art. I'm terrible at time budgeting and have several times run over deadlines already, so art is really not getting done at all. Will this change as I get a handle on my workload? I sure hope so! I want to do a lot more - of everything, really; I want to do more life drawings (birds! Scenery! Nature! Skies! Everything!), more fanart (I miss homestuck :'( But other things too! Xenoblade! Probably Undertale, maybe some general films and books - Check Please? Anyone read Check Please?), more people (I want to be able to make silly comics about my life and people in it), more of my own characters (bc I think that they are So Cool and Very Lovely). More art. I'm brimming with motivation, inspiration - just need the time!

*Due to my inactivity on here, I think it might be an idea to put contact details if any of you want to talk to me. Maybe you do, maybe you don't. Either way, I'm far more active on other sites:

Tumblr - active almost daily
<a wytiwyg="1" href="archiveofourown.org/users/tran…>AO3 - I write! But am completely inactive during term times, and it's all kuroshitsuji trash. I love Grell unconditionally. AO3 is probably why I didn't do so well in last year's exams.
I'm on Twitter and Instagram as wavelengtg, but have nothing exciting on either of those as of yet.
I also have facebook and an email which you're welcome to note me asking for if we've known each other a while, although I'm not brilliantly fast with replies on either.

Hope you're all well!
Out on the Leg by lostdesertfan
Out on the Leg
A picture which makes no sense whatsoever, in any context. It's Fiora and Trek, fanart for the Xenoblade novelisation created by one Seizeourdestiny on tumblr (well worth the read!!). What a good ponio.

Origional canon is Xenoblade Chronicles :>
Watercolours and pen
