Messing around with my Titania and Oberon designs because I haven’t drawn jack in a while and I dunno what to draw though I have things I need to draw but I don’t feel like drawing them… at the moment… or because it’s too hot out and our A/C is broken still because of vacation and the repairperson won’t be out here until Monday and I worry about warping my paper with sweat and aaaaahhhh
What are hands what is posing what even is happening oh well
After events of the play, maybe before, but not during haha
Edit: More thoughts on designs here

Designing Princess outfits because I wanna and they’ve been on the brain

The styles are like… completely incongruent haha listen if I want to do like flowy fantasy dress and then Victorian-inspired riding habit I will

I should probably try to make the Victorian-inspired riding habit match the flowy fantasy dress a little better but that’s a design challenge for another day

I’ve been working on my graphite portfolio piece over the past few days, today I got things transferred, made the label, and laid in some loose shadows with carbon dust and that took longer than I wanted it to so I put it up for now and will work on it some more tomorrow

I made some more palettes for fun (from photos which are © SEM, who is me)

I still need to try drawing something with one of these, so I’ve no idea if they’re any good, but I like making them

Apparently I like a lot of similar colors in flowers

I wanted to try out the color set I made so I drew Bea Arthur because Golden Girls was on, plus Bea Arthur is my lady of sarcasm and idol and queen, so
The palette is probably suited for painterly things more than straight inkwork but eh, still fun to play with, I like it

I did a couple more practice pussywillows, in graphite and colored pencil, because I wanted to test out some paper I had and I wanted to see how much I remembered about using graphite (which I can do well enough) and colored pencil (which I am terrible at) in preparation for working on my portfolio

"I’m going to quickly sketch some stupid things for my Force Trio, it shouldn’t take too long" I think to myself six hours ago hahaha
I dunno what’s up with Force Trio but I had been thinking about their respective guardians or whatever and researching some ideas over the past day or so (if I start bringing up Wookiepedia you can pretty much assume I’m doing research for something related to Force Trio not gonna lie) and welp
I was going to try and like attempt to make Star Wars names for Judi Dench and Helen Mirren (the fact that there’s Jedi Master Judi Dench was inspired by this drawing I had done some time ago) but then I realized “eh fuck it I’m already making characters for a heavily licensed universe if I want to cast Judi Dench and Helen Mirren as themselves as aliens I can do it it’s a drawing” so I did who’s going to stop me
Anyway
Pon Hedu’s Aunt is a Nautolan and pretty obviously not actually a blood relative but was her guardian for a time before her demise. [Bonus half-colored in tiny Pon Hedu]
Jedi Master Judi Dench is Zabraki (and yes yes facial tattoos listen I was too tired to really deal with that if I do more stuff with this which I shouldn’t but probably will I’ll worry about that then) and was Dalvah Din’s Master
Jedi Master Helen Mirrenn is Mirialan and was Jiljo’otarkona’s Master
That’s all I feel like saying for now who knows what I’m doing with this I really need to write more for other stuff so I might finish a thing and yeah
Sleep
Need sleep

So I’ve had some wood panels lying around waiting to be made into a journal, so here’s the first one! I decided to make and give it to my friend weirdcitysights whom I owe both belated birthday and Christmas gifts haha oh dear.Because I feel it fits the aesthetics of the Myst series wonderfully and I’ve always loved the Narayan symbols of Myst III: Exile (and because on this set of panels I had already carved the Time symbols since it’s one of my favorites), I decided to give the journal a Myst flavor. So… yeah, there’s the symbol for Time on the cover, and then what should be D’ni for SEM (sehm) on the back cover, and then my friend’s name transliterated on the inside front cover (if you can read it, congrats, but I won’t be transliterating it for you).I hope she likes it, she’ll see these pictures before she gets the journal but I did send it off today.

coggirl But seriously here’s what I see when I hear Kit Fisto, like someone in Fallout was a little too lonely and a little too good at programming and made a hoooker/possible spouse with a literal heart of gold
Kit Fisto has a glitch where Kit Fisto never learned the word “I” and of course Kit Fisto has the Naughty Nightwear Kit Fisto is classy as fuck

So there’s that post about Mister Rogers and Bob Ross piloting a Jaeger and then this morning was thinking about it and I decided that Shatterdome Shining Time Station would be run by Marshal Conductors Carlin and Starr and J-Tech operator LeVar Burton (Reading Rainbow era, his outfit is based off of the episode where he visits the TNG set since I remember watching it as a kid) and I want to somehow include Shari Lewis but I haven’t figured out how (K-Sci? But I mean… with the puppets and all I’m not sure Lamb Chop and Hush Puppy and Charlie Horse are really scientists and all you know? Shari herself seems more J-Tech to me…). And then when I was drawing things out the kaiju that got a sweater and art set from the Jaeger Warm Feelings ended up being Big Bird so

Can you tell I was a child raised on PBS haha I can’t

Oh drat I just realized the kaiju should’ve been Barney OH WELL TOO LATE NOW since I just wanted to sketch these and get them out of my system

I wanted to try to make some color palettes from photos of mine, so I finally sat down tonight with photos I had set aside and made a bunch. Captions contain more info on the photos, which are still © SEM
