Moi. Being silly.
Interests
I live! (I really need to stop starting journals like this, and I also really really need to post more than 2 journals this year. Bad 2015, bad!) 

So, what's up with me? Lots! 
:bulletblue: I PASSED THE BAR
:bulletgreen: YES I DID 
:bulletpurple: LOOK AT ME 
:bulletred: BOOYAH

Ahem. So other things! 
:bulletblue: Am now officially lawyer. Don't ask me questions, I probably don't know the answer. Am mostly pretending to be lawyer. :B 
:bulletpurple: Have car and apartment, like real person (also pretending. not real person)
:bulletgreen: Made chili yesterday, like I often do. I make damn good chili. I cut the jalapenos with my bare hands, as I often do. Safeway, the most useless grocery store in creation, sold me fat Serranos instead. I found this out by being in horrible burning agony for 7 hours last night. >:C 
:bulletred: Found out today that one of my coworkers came down with viral pinkeye, will be out for 3 weeks, and everything he touched is now super-contagious. It's not like I work right next to him or am going to be doing jobs for his boss or anything now. 
:bulletpurple: Working in a courthouse is so great, you guys. Here is a list of the reasons why: 
-My boss is awesome
-Like, SO AWESOME you guys 
-She is the coolest judge 
-Sometimes people are crazy, and you get to see those people do crazy things
-Example: "Mr. X, why did you decide to divorce your wife?" "Because she decided to become a man." :B Welp there's an answer (said former wife then testified concerning her job as a public speaker on the fusion between magic and sexuality, and all of her witnesses were psychics) 
-Other example: "Tell (husband I'm divorcing) to give me back my meteor!"
-Other example: Individual is approached at a McDonald's drive-thru for money, turns the panhandler down, feels bad because "he's a big believer in karma," goes after the guy to give him some money after all, and witnesses said panhandler carjacking some poor schlubs in the parking lot at gunpoint. Go go gadget irony! 

...I could go on, but I think you get the picture. :P There were some REALLY funny moments in a recent case, but it ended in a mistrial / hung jury so I'll hold on to those little anecdotes until the final verdict is reached. :3 

Anyway I had more stuff to talk about but I'm hungry so I GUESS I'LL JUST HAVE TO WRITE ANOTHER JOURNAL SOMETIME BEFORE THE HEAT DEATH OF THE UNIVERSE WON'T I 

Love y'all. Art coming soon. :heart: 
  • Listening to: People get law wrong on the radio

Disneigh Princesses 1--Bibbity Bobbity Boo by TheAntimonyElement
Disneigh Princesses 1--Bibbity Bobbity Boo
Sooooo this is a thing I've been doing for a bit, because it brings me joy to pony. ;3 I've done / am doing all the "canon" Disney Princesses, as well as most other Disney female leads. I'll post the groups as I get all the characters done. In the meantime...

Walt Disneigh studios is known for its princess movies, which are adored by many citizens of Equestria: 

-Snow White and the Seven Diamond Dogs, starring Snow White
-Cinderfilly: starring Cinderfilly, aka Glass Slipper
-Enchanting: starring Storybook 
-Sleeping Lovely: starring Aurora Lights, aka Briar Rose 

It was sooo much fun picking the design and colors for these ponies. I wanted them to be instantly recognizable with only a minimum of accessories. Typically, their fur color is the color of their "primary" outfit from the movie, with some exceptions (like Aurora, Mulan, etc) who don't have an "established" color scheme. What type of pony they are depends mostly on personality. I chose pegasus for Snow White and Giselle because they're both pretty naive and happy-go lucky, while Cinderella and Aurora have unicorn horns because they're such sophisticated "princesses classic." 

More to come soon! Hope y'all like pones. ;)

Come Away O Human Child by TheAntimonyElement
Come Away O Human Child
...To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand 
For the world's more full of weeping 
Than you can understand. 

Recommended listening: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBuugW…

Soooooo here's this damn thing. I started sketching out the lines for this, mmm, the summer before I started law school I think. It was originally meant to be a personal challenge--draw a human-shaped thing! With human legs! (sob) And color it completely watercolor-style, paint only! (SOB) (Hint: I looove love love my India Inks, but watercolor and I just do not get along. Halp). 

Anyway so I got it to something presentable-ish with just the watercolors, so I was pretty happy with myself...but the piece needed more to be its best self. And I can't let something that I worked hard on off into the world without being as SHINY and MAGICAL as I can possibly make it. Soo...this happened. 

It is now pretty definitely mixed-media, with a significant amount of paper-cut elements. There's all the leaves in the bottom left, top left, and top right corners, the ferns in the bottom right corner, and parts of Oberon's antlers because I COULD NOT decide on a color scheme for them. The rest is mostly India Ink, with accents in white gel pen, liquid acrylic, ink pen, and some very limited colored pencil and nail polish. 

I wish you guys could see how shiny this is without it totally ruining the quality of the picture. There are a lot of subtle-ish shiny bits that make it really gorgeous in real life (as well as being able to see the full effects of the paper-cut textures, sigh). Namely, the wings have slight hints of nail polish, most of the leaves have little sparkly silver edges, and Oberon and Titania are just COVERED with shiny. Oberon especially--the gold pattern on his vest is exceedingly glitzy, and his antlers actually glow silver when seen in the light. 

Altogether, I'm pretty damn proud of this thing. It's maybe not my magnum opus or anything, but I pushed myself to do a level of detail and variety that I'm not usually comfortable with, and I'm pretty pleased the with the result. Obviously I didn't work on this thing nonstop for four years, but it's been lurking in the back of my sketchbook for ages begging for some finishing touches, and it feels wonderful to be able to send it out into the world, finally. 

And finally: I'm not going to lie and pretend that Oberon there wasn't strongly inspired by Jareth (if the owl motif and the crystal ball didn't clue you in). Jareth was--is--just the ultimate suave, dangerous faery king. So, this wasn't meant to be quite so timely...but at the same time, farewell, Goblin King. You will be missed, but I think you've found your immortality one way or another. 

Anyway. Hope you guys like it. I'm pretty fond of it myself. :3

Ohhh I am SO HAPPY that they got there safely and in one piece!!! I took my time responding to this message because I was just so insanely moved by it, I wanted to mull over my response a little. I really try to put a lot of love into all my work, but gryphons (or gryfons ;) ) have a special place in my heart, and I love your characters so much that I wanted to do them justice. It was quite a learning process but I'm really proud of how they came out, and I'm just over the moon that you love them. :heart: 

In other news, your autographed hardcovers are SO PRETTY and I was just in love with the little gryfons you drew on the box (which I am saving because DUH. I decided to repay you with a few doodles of my own. ;) It's just such an adorable idea! In any case, I am so happy that I got to trade with you, and I just absolutely cannot wait for "A Shard of Sun!" I've already pre-ordered it. ;) 

If it's not too much trouble, would you mind mentioning me and my work in a journal, perhaps? I'm looking to start getting into commissions more, but I'm a little hesitant about self-advertising. :P 

Finally, I had a really phenomenal time working with your characters, and if you're ever interested in another trade or commission of any kind, I would be more than happy to work with you. :) Thank you again for all your kind words, and have a great day!

I would be happy to do a journal!

I also tend to be very slow about things so if you don't see it in the next week or so Please. Nudge. Me. And don't be shy.

The magnets make me SO happy every time I see them. :heart:
