Yozusk Division

A friend gave me a challenge. Draw a Harrower! he said. Draw the Yozusk Division’s Harrower!

Let me tell you a not-so-secret secret. I have never tried to draw a spaceship (and with “never” I of course mean “not since I was a 6 year old playing with crayons”). Or even a regular ship. Not even airplanes or cars. Vehicles just are not my thing, I find them utterly boring. Which meant that this challenge really was a challenge! I spent forever just staring at the blank document, having no clue what to do.

As inspiration finally turned up however, I ended up having a whole lot of fun with it. And in the end, the only part I am not pleased with is the lettering. Looks like I got something else to practice there, huh?

Yet another SWTOR character!

Another RP character from SWTOR. Old man Thanamon! Took me longer than usual to get done, this was a tricky one. I’m not entirely pleased but hey. Practice is practice!

A Cathar!

To carry on with the SWTOR theme, here’s another roleplay character I just finished drawing today. This time the Cathar named Lana’ina! Yes, she’s topless. *gasp* Furry tits!

And then a Harpul!

I continue my quest to learn how to properly draw men! Here’s my latest, like the last one it is a friend’s RP character from swtor. I think I made some progress… but I still need to work on getting the likeness right, or more right at least. But improvement is improvement, so I’ll take it!

For another friend!

I need to practice drawing men. I’ve known that for a while now, and so yesterday I tried my hand at drawing a friend’s roleplay character, Admiral Karr from swtor. As I didn’t have any decent reference material I didn’t quite get the uniform right, and the face is a little less like the original than I’d like it to be, but nonetheless I am quite happy with it. Here’s a watermarked version!

Thank you

Sorry for today’s earlier outburst. It’s been a bad day, mood-wise. A nasty cold in combination with anxiety, and having the husband out of town. Still not doing great, but it’s a little bit better now. Thank you all who left me encouraging comments and hugs in that last post, you have no idea how much it means to hear such when stuck in a low point!

In an attempt to stifle the bad mood I went outside, cold and all, and picked some raspberries. There is something calming about picking berries, just… one at a time, one at a time, one at a time. I then whipped up a combined apple-raspberry jam using our own apples – we only have a few as the tree still is very young, so not talking a bit cooking project here, the whole thing took like 20 minutes. 30 maybe. Tasty result, but I was still a mess. A tired mess too, constantly sneezing and coughing (sshhh, don’t think about how hygienic it ISN’T to make jam while sick, I just had to do something!), so I laid down, and slept. For hours and hours, pretty much all afternoon.

 

When I finally woke up, I came to do something I’ve not done in months. I actually logged on to Guild Wars 2 to do a bit of roleplay. However huge rp has been in my life the past few years, at the moment all of that is gone. I just don’t dare get involved, for fear of disappointing people, and so I’ve stayed away. Until tonight, when I gave it a little try at least.

It was good, it really was. Simple, nothing special, no pressure, just casual RP. I think that might have been exactly what I needed today, to finally calm down.

 

There is no real point to this blog post, and I apologize for the lack of worthwhile content. But, that’s how it is today. Tomorrow is another day, I will try to be better then.
