FR raffle gift for unistar2000's Kozu! Initially started out as a coloured sketch, then got a little carried away. 

Yooooo check this out! I won Zabel's raffle prize during the Fire flight festival and was blessed with this gorgeous drawing ;u; so frickin jazzed about this, thanks again! 

trying to buff up my 2d portfolio w/ some sketches in the hopes of getting into intermediate drawing next semester w/o the prerequisite. (disclaimer: putting life drawings and studies in professional portfolios is apparently a no-no, but showing a breadth of skills should be fine for academic evaluation. also the prof specifically asked for ‘work from direct observation’ so I figured the top few would be okay) 

first round of vessels made it out of the kiln! well, most of them did; 2 are MIA and one is broken beyond repair after a few explosions. not sad tho cuz they’re all pretty ugly :P
wheel throwing is interestingly one of the few art forms I haven’t been able to pick up right away. it’s got a huge learning curve but I’ve definitely gotten better since I’ve made these so at least there’s progress~

*casually puts homestuck and pokemon fan art into professional academic portfolio* no one will know

found a painting from class last semester that I forgot to upload. I’m so disenchanted w/ oil painting atm but I like certain parts of this.

*arrives 3 seasons late with generic avatar state fanart*
I got into AtLA a few years ago (thanks tay), and LoK after catching up with that and I gotta say it’s the best animated TV series. of all time.
I drew this before Korra’s spiffy new haircut but i’m gonna be drawing the whole gang in their new (and/or old?) looks probably. i love costume changes. and the Avatar character designs in general. anyway happy october whooo’s pumped for book four

hufffsss sorry for the absence, the school year is off to a busy start uvu I’ve been very preoccupied with my sculpture and wheel throwing classes - spent probably a third of my waking hours in the ceramics room for the past couple weeks x.x

here’s why! our first project is to build something life-size based on a memory, event, or dream. There were lots of problems along the way but I think I like how this one is going. Stacked together, it’ll be over 6 feet tall (if the base doesnt shatter into a million pieces in the kiln, which I am fully expecting. check out those cracks yo)

anyways, now that this monstrosity of a project is (half) over, I’m hoping to spend some more time on digital stuff and commissions C:

Yooooo check out all this sweet loot I got from Nicky!! 

Her half of the trade arrived yesterday and I am sooo happy and overwhelmed and thankful. Five whole sculptures - look at em!! Mega Absol is simply amazing. Roxy, jade, and nep are the cutest (all my fav hs girls in one place i can’t handle it)!! and the surprise kitty is sooo adorable i just wanna hold it all day. plus she sent me a bunch of chocolate goodies that are made exclusively in New Zealand?? so now my art collection shelf has doubled in size and my snack drawer is stocked with sweets. I’ve been floating on a cloud since i opened the package ahaha <3 

I could go on and on (and I will when/if she posts pics of the sculptures herself) but basically this was an awesome trade and i’m so glad it happened :’) if you enjoy quality sculpting like this, check out all her art!!
