Ugh, what a weird couple of days. Been so physically drained and sleepy for no reason at all, making it hard to move or have the energy to do anything, even though I have been getting enough sleep, have been eating healthy and I exercise (I have to walk everywhere). 

I had a really bad hypo attack today though, worse than I’ve had in a while, so I wonder if this weird energy drain is just an extension to that (and I have been devouring everything in sight and am still not fully satisfied). Hope this goes away by tomorrow, it’s super annoying.

It’s making it difficult for me to get this darn picture done! D:< *rages*

Oh wow, thank you everyone for all the great feedback on my Astrid and Stormfly sketch! I was definitely not expecting that, it was a very great thing to see after coming home to from work! If this one turns out well in completion, I may do more of these :) (been thinking about doing Ruffnut and Scaldy next!)

Astrid and Stormfly Sketch WIPJust a little something I started a couple nights ago! Thought I&#8217;d take a knack at some portrait work (since I suck at people heads), but I&#8217;m liking how it&#8217;s turning out so far. I&#8217;m a super messy sketcher, which is why you never really see me draw things perfectly on the spot in real life (I need lots of room to make mistakes). Hopefully this turns out good once I&#8217;m done.

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!Love your art, love yourself!

Here&#8217;s another creation! A mermaid based off of the frilled shark, a prehistoric shark that is awesome. I made this mermaid very old because the species itself is ancient, and she is dying in the shallow water because frilled sharks are used to living in much deeper waters and rarely ever appear.

Had a lot of fun drawing these little guys! I wanted to do a more unique approach to common mythological creatures (like my leafy seadragon mermaid), so here are my penguin/sea otter gryphons! Obviously not built for flying, these smaller gryphons are built for streamlined high-speed swimming for catching fish or eluding predators (the extra wings on the back help with balance as well). Claws and beaks also make it easier for them to break open shellfish and are great for underwater climbing and digging. I drew two different breeds since I was wanting to draw a couple poses anyways.

So I wound up staying up until almost 5am last night drawing this when I should&#8217;ve been in bed. This is basically what I&#8217;d be as a mermaid, and if anyone remembers who knows, the Leafy Seadragon is my favourite sea creature and I&#8217;ve been wanting to design it as a mermaid for a while now. It was lots of fun and I love how it turned out! (I still suck at backgrounds)

Shoutout to all the artists on Tumblr who work on something for weeks and only get 4 notes

Shoutout to all the artists on Youtube who do amazing speedpaints and, if they’re lucky, will get 500 views

Shoutout to all underappreciated artists who do amazing work and receive no recognition

Just a little exercise I did quickly. These are just some very tiny freehand poses done about 1-3 mins each, no references and far from perfect, (but whatevs&#8217;). Just wanted to see how many poses I could think of and doodle down before I got bored of doing it (I feel sorry for the guy in the bottom right hand corner).

Here is a 5 minute Toothless bait I doodled with a mouse on DA Muro on journal post of a fellow user who was helping to inform the masses. Basically there is this hilariously pathetic &#8220;art thief&#8221; who remakes multiple accounts after one is banned, and only searches, favourites, and threatens to &#8220;steal&#8221; toothless art for whatever the reason. It really is laughable, so I made this because I was feeling sassy.
