I'm taking inspiration from one of sweetpinkpixie's ideas and basing some of my pieces on my own RP characters, as well as the provided prompts. I'll be choosing prompts based on which I'm feeling particularly inspired by, and same for characters when I incorporate them into the piece.

I am still not confident in my ability to draw figures and faces especially without a reference, but I'll be tentatively aiming to Grow a Character if I decide I'm up to the challenge.

I haven't been able to keep up with everyone's art lately, but I really want to come in and comment on everything, so prepare for a massive post (very sorry in advance).

Nonconformist - Really lovely job getting the folds of the fabric done so realistically in pen. Such vibrant colors too.

Quidditch - Look at lil baby Jake. What a throwback. I love manips and yours is so well done.

Spectrespecs - Ooh this is drawn so well. I really love the sense of form you were able to achieve here.

Gryffindor - wow these are some gorgeous signatures. I especially like the coloring on the first two. Forever jealous of your graphic abilities.

Acceptance - Really like how you got the curves and form of this with some light contour shading. I'm not sure I get the reference, but Nem probably likes it that way lol.

Radish - Oh you've got jokes XD I really love the shading and value and form on this radish. Nicely done.

Air / earth - Love the concept and also love the result! The one thing I think that is most difficult about manips is to make sure the lighting and coloring matches on everything, and you did a really great job with this, even going the extra mile to de-age Cooper's FC. And I AM happy with the canon colors, so thank you ^^

Ferret - The fur texture is so soft and lovely on this and so realistic too. Seems like a very fitting patronus for Brandon.

Spring - The shading on this is really amazing, especially the shadow on the further back coils. Really makes it look so 3D and realistic.

Rook - Really nice job with the two point perspective

Hare - Just like the ferret, you have a nice way of capturing soft, realistic fur texture. I just want to pet him.

Green - More lovely signatures. Ugh, just so beautiful ;; I really like the way you play with negative space in some of these too.

Riddikulus - Ok this is really cool. I like your scribbly pen mark making and how you got such nice form with it all. And you're right - that was riddikulus.

Pudding - N'aww this looks like something Brandon would like. These colors are so fun and vibrant, plus I love the shading you have in it.

Sun colours & Independent - More pretty graphics *__* These all feel so fitting to their personalities too.

Flying - This is a cool manip. Reminds me of some of the Quidditch signatures back in the day.

Swift - Ooh I really like how you did the feathers and how they fade out from the darker body.

Autumn - My Autumn is annoyed that no one was inspired by her for this prompt, but I love this pumpkin guy. Again, I like the shading in this too. It really gives it a nice sense of realism and dimension.

Reformation - Oooh can really tell his knuckles are bloody. You did a great job with the hand too, even with leaving one of the fingers unfinished - honestly just looked like a design choice. A lot of my students complain about drawing hands, but you did a nice job here.

Trapped - Ok this just looks like a picture of Ezra in his uniform - how are you able to create such seamless manips??

Fire - oooh I really like this fire effect that you got here, and yet another seamless beautiful manip. Wow.

Poison - This looks like it belongs on some of the jars in the Potions cupboard. I can see it.

Prophecy - Oh this is cool, I really like the shape of it as well as the different marks you used for shading and different values.

Perceptive - Oh my, this is really beautiful. I love crows and ravens. And this is done so well, the way you did the shading really makes him look like he has feathers.

WELL. It has been a MINUTE since I was last in here and the audacity you have to produce so many amazing pieces that I have so many things to say about. Honestly. Incorrigible

Okay but...I love this interpretation and it is so clever and SO TOBY. You may not like this one but I am obsessed with the shading and balance you brought to this piece. I remember how hard it was with lighting and shading on the chains I did last year and that was on such a SMALL scale compared to this large scale one like this. It's lovely and so so springy.

This makes me so emo because of the Atlas and Nem hang outs in this location Also, Sadie and Art...for VERY different reasons but uuuuuh the texture and shading on those spikey parts of the rook bits...its really really captivating. I also really appreciate the purposeful placement of those more prominent brick pieces!


  1. Lucky - Atlas is a tad grumpy but I really enjoy how the brightest point of this one is that pink flower and then those mischievous eyes tucked right behind it
  2. Olivier - Delilah is so soft and says her brother is so handsome *meanwhile drools over the font*
  3. Noah - Mavis:

    I really like how nice that white writing looks. I never think to use white on pale backgrounds like that but big fan
  4. Nem 1.0 - okay but...can we talk about the symbolism of the background and how Nem is the divide between the white and black? Can we please?
  5. Nem 2.0 - the cropping job I would have been so tempted to put text or SOMETHING there (I have this thing with negative space and not knowing how to utilize it ) but this is so effective
  6. Kaiser 1.0 - someone in my head is very pleased with the warm tones of this one also something about his dark shirt and then that dark sharp line on the wall is really striking. All about the crop
  7. Kaiser 2.0 - again, all about that crop also the subtle green undertones with that rocky road beside him...I SEE YOU
  8. Ezekiel - this looks like a Victorian postcard thing. Love the aesthetic
  9. Kamran - love this one too (quelle surprise, as you would say) and the color balance is just so nice

Nope. Nope nope nope nope NOPE. I remember this scene and wondered HOW IN THE WORLD THIS WAS FUNNY BECAUSE IT IS HORRIFYING

Benjee was about to get petty until he saw the lollipop and then went "oh wait I don't like those, it's okay" ... cause, you know, maturity is a thing. But love the vibrancy of this one very very much

....the audacity...AGAIN *clears throat*
  1. Rachelle - ugh this is so pretty. I'm soft *we play sometime, yes*
  2. Brandon 1.0 - UGH.. THE SOFT GLOW OF THE COLORS. Love the feel of this one. Fits him so perfectly.
  3. Brandon 2.0 - Speaking of COLORS...Benjee has comments about that jacket
  4. Toby - I get so emo seeing his face up and remembering where he came from ugh, I am soft and I still remember Paige finding him in the common room bare chested and covered in glitter but really like the colors on this one and it is just SO WARM and welcoming, just like Sir Toby
  5. Jake - look at Jake looking all suave. I also really like the use of all lower case lettering. I don't know what it is but I just love that aesthetic and it is well used here

  1. Ezra - again with the white text on pale backgrounds, beautiful. This one really links nicely to one of the Nem ones I have seen and ugh, Upstead aesthetic
  2. Theo - ugh, that smile. Love the coloring on this, subtle hints at kind of a rainbow like the other siggy of him and what a cute little linky link. Needless to say, Cooper is also a fan #bromance
  3. Cohen - Darius has things to say...but I will not let him because he (and they) are deplorable. I love the text layout here and how it all makes a nice box inside of the box overlay. I also really like the grainy quality to it? I am not sure if that is from the original image or a texture overlay, but I like the choice either way.
  4. Jordan - N3RD. Okay but the saturation on this one is so nice. Drowning in those baby blues - just James almost drowned being thrown over the side of the ship
  5. Dragomir - Zinnia is so soft and adores her bestie's silly face. Love the coloring on this one too. So soft and blue and so very him
  6. Daxton - *only slightly emotional* the black and white and this whole family tree with the black and white THE SYMBOLISM

Quidditch manips *shudders* Rose used to lament about these and they are SO TRICKY...but you did a very nice job on this one and changing the color of those Gryffindor robes. It is truly an art

This is so pretty. I love the darkness and the fade out to the wings and the shading and the TIPS OF THE WINGS ARE JUST SO DELICATE AND CUTE!

I, sadly, do not get the reference but I think this adorable and gives me Nightmare Before Christmas vibes.

Ugh. uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh. HOW DARE YOU UNLEASH ALL THIS EMO ON ME?! but please don't stop I first met Kaiser during one of his transitional phases...but I have still seen so much growth though our time playing him with Candela and ugh I am so emo. Also...YOU DREW A HAND AND IT CAME OUT SO NICE AND WOW I'M SHOOK

Ugh, manips. Love the work you do with swapping out ties and so nice to see you finding your way with color adusting. It is so tricky but this looks really nice and love the addition of of the Ravenclaw common room (also how dare you again with the emo? Sadie is soft)

I loooooooooooove this one. Also happy texture accidents are both awesome and infuriating. But this is just so amazing Also major props on Pax's hair cause that can be such a NIGHTMARE

yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me!

I accept trophy carrying as canon for the Department of Mysteries moving forward *bangs gavel* also, I get some major Lord of the Rings/Barad-dûr vibes from the aesthetic and I love that. Also think the words in there swirling around like smoke is a cute little twist.

Ugh...I am obsessed with the pen strokes in this one and how they really give off the illusion of feathers! I've never really done a piece in full on liner before, but seeing all your ink work makes me want to try...but scary o.o

AND FINALLY! Congratulations on completing your 30 days challenge!

red, red desert, heal our blues; I dive deeper for you..............
what a blessing to feel your love; twilight promised me you.........
all these moments with you...
