Snowpiercer Speech-Inspired Shirts

I’ve been obsessed with Minister Mason’s speech ever since I saw Snowpiercer, and all I wanted was a really simple black shirt with the best line (“Be A Shoe”) on it. I couldn’t find any, so I went ahead and made one for myself.

So it is.

Bonus Size 10 Chaos because I happen to wear a size 10 shoe and I couldn’t help myself. Now to order and wear the hell out of them.

Holy wow was this thing fun to draw, and I’m pretty sure I love it.

Color Palette Challenge #1 for dragonsinparis

Fire Nation Kids, Palette #12

Azula and Zuko; there was never any love lost between the two. I think I just jumped at the chance to draw chubby Zuko?

What Should I Draw?

Ok, I think I would really like to do this meme! So please, send me some ideas ;_; Even if we’ve never met! I just…would like some drawing challenges to work on.

I’m pretty much down for any character/anything (it doesn’t have to be a character) - so, let loose the ideas!

Dragon*Con Cosplay Progress: Ravio and Gum

So, I had to drop the Witch King of Angmar from my costume lineup this year because of luggage space. I replaced it with Ravio from the latest Zelda game (Link Between Worlds); it even has a little marionette of Sheerow (still needs his tummy gem…)! I’m also working on Gum from Jet Grind Radio to wear in the parade with ceratopian, bethiichancosplay, and thesilentnation, if we all manage to get our stuff together, hehehe!! Either way, I’m really looking forward to the con this year. More updates to follow in the weeks leading up to the con. Let me know if you’re going!!!

Also, Woof the Wonder Pup was trying to eat my sleeves for Gum…

Late Night Doodle: This Chick
It&#8217;s after midnight. I don&#8217;t know what to call her. My eyes have ceased to focus, and my back is saying &#8220;psst! i&#8217;m tired! you should lay down!&#8221; Suffice to say, I am quite sleepy, but I figured I would take my last bit of life-force to post this doodle.

Late Night Doodle: Be A Shoe

I saw Snowpiercer the other evening, and let’s just say that I maaaay be a little obsessed with it at the moment? My favorite character by far was Minister Mason, whom I attempted to draw here. Jury’s out on it LOOKING like Tilda Swinton, but I’m sort of pleased with it for the time being. It’s been…many many years since I’ve tried any type of portraiture. I’m rusty!

R: a song that I’ve listened to lots of times recently
Most recently, I can&#8217;t go more than 2-3 days without listening to Daft Punk&#8217;s (ft. Julian Casablancas) &#8220;Instant Crush&#8221; at least once. AT LEAST. Sometimes I listen to it daily.
(Now I must listen to it before answering the next set&#8230;)
envirion's turn!
W: a song with an amazing music video
My favorite music video of all time is probably The Faint&#8217;s &#8220;Symptom Finger&#8221;. I HATE kinetic text animations, but that video is a perfect video of what they SHOULD be :P Also, I really like the song.
H: a song that reminds me of my childhood
Every summer, my dad, who played in the U.S. Army Band &#8220;Pershing&#8217;s Own&#8221;, would be part of a summer concert on the lawn beneath the Washington Monument. Every year, they closed that concert with Tchaikovsky&#8217;s 1812 Overture, complete with actual canon-fire. The children of the concert-attendees would always run around and catch fireflies during the show, but EVERYONE stopped to listen to 1812. I 100% equate the song with my father, so it&#8217;s one of my ultimate favorites (I think it has 40% to do with why I love War and Peace so much too, the 1812-memories).
A: an uplifting song
I learned a new song last year that has become my favorite - it&#8217;s an old Shaker hymn called "Give Good Gifts, One to Another". When I&#8217;m at my most down, I usually listen to hymns. This one is particularly nice, and I like the message. It reminds me to try and be a good person. I like hymns that don&#8217;t necessarily require religion to have a good meaning behind them.
Also,  "ONE LITTLE SPARK" from Disneyworld holy crap.
L: an instrumental song
"Disco Swing" by Greenskeepers!!
E: a song by a band I’ve seen live
It is physically impossible for me to make a music list and not include Daft Punk AND Rammstein. Since I haven&#8217;t seen Daft Punk, that leaves one option! I love Rammstein. This is my favorite song. They sang it at the concert that I went to, and I still think about it A LOT. Also, it&#8217;s kind of about sharks, which I find cute. Also also, the video is hilarious because all of the band members are trying to figure out who should replace the lead singer (whilst showing ways they tried to kill him in the past).

Sheerow Plush-Puppet

I started this toy months ago, lost motivation to finish it, forgot about it, and then remembered it only because I decided to make Ravio’s costume for my next con. So! Here he is, little Sheerow. I like him better than Navi…
