is where the meme came from.
i actually felt like drawing today. like, actually wanting to for no reason. how bout that. i did the meme almost exclusively because i was like SHIT, THE REVERSE OF AGENDER MUST BE PANGENDER!!!!! and i felt vaguely accomplished for subverting the gender binary (thumbs up)
also river with long hair, hell yea
HOLY SHIT RIVER’S BIRTHDAY
December 15 people think big. These expansive personalities let their thoughts run free, even wild sometimes, and recognize few limitations. Through moral blindness, excessive optimism or overweening pride they can fall from grace. Perhaps they have to learn to be satisfied at whatever level suits them, accept their limitations and make the best of what they have.
December 15 people are for the most part highly social beings to the extent that they enjoy having a positive impact on their friends, family and society in general. It is crucial that they consider carefully whether this influence is ultimately of a positive nature. In this respect, December 15 people are at their best when kind (not condescending), helpful (not interfering) and caring (not nagging).
December 15 people are often liked by others because their presence makes people feel good. They bring with them an optimism, an ease and an openness which is highly appreciated. Those born on this day are also well-liked precisely because they so readily see the goodness and potential in those deserving of their admiration and respect.
December 15 individuals are usually believers in their own good luck. They carry a certain confidence into most situations which is impersonal, less a belief in any specific strength or talents than a general sense of well-being. For the most part, this is healthy but can lead them to misjudge the negative potential of certain situations. December 15 people can be remarkably unconcerned about such dangers.
ohhhh my GOD I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS
I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS
it’s happening. it’s here. there’s no point putting it off any longer. i’m doing this shit and y’all are coming along with me.
drew this while i waited for anime to transfer to my thumbdrive. nothing but quality shitposting on this blog
thinkin about doing fireflies choose your own adventure style ?
- can draw it quickly
- can fit in extra exposition otherwise not possible
- easy to do, easy to read
- probably the single laziest form of story telling imaginable (perfect for me lol)
- potentially wordy and/or boring
- second person is one of those things that is charming at first but becomes unwieldy and makes things awkward wrt dialogue
figure if i don’t half ass it it won’t happen at all. better to be lazy about the art than to abandon it entirely imo. nothing is ever set in stone with me because i can’t make up my mind and really you should take everything i say with a grain of salt. still thinking about things, trying to assess what kind of mental strain i can put up with. i still have a very unstable relationship with my own art, i can go from being gung-ho to wanting to quit forever in about five minutes.
god i’ve just wanted to draw River forever and now i have the perfect excuse. happy birthday to wren.
LOOK AT THE CUTE PUPPY ZOEY DREW FOR ME
( ; o ;)ﾉ*:･ﾟ♥
i forgot river’s birthday was december 15th. i only remembered because mine is the 13th of this month and i was like oh right yeah. i totally forgot.
i was going to put this on my porn blog but i don’t think it’s that porny. maybe it is though. i’m not good at judging that kind of thing. i just really felt like drawing a torso, and river in pigtails. (i hope i don’t look at this in half an hour and shit myself over some glaring mistake)
got around to scanning doodles. here are ones that suck less than the rest of them.
needed an icon that i’d put a little more effort into
even when i feel like crap and everyone i draw is sad river is still happy considers this in hindsight
Is river not a cyclops anymore? ( ; ∩ ;)
it has to do with race (there are parallels drawn between the races in the story and groups of people that exist in real life; a typical narrative trope) in the story they’re in. first i thought it would be best to make them an oni, then i talked to jo and i changed my mind that a dog would be best. i don’t want to explain entirely why because of spoilers, but that’s the gist of the reason.
there’s actually a ton of added dynamism that wouldn’t have otherwise existed in the plot because of it. also dogs are cute. dogs are so cute.
