Getting back into the swing of things, commissions and trades-wise. Starting with this lovely for MustLoveFrogs at dA.

Her “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” work is just so much fun, especially her comics, and when she asked me to draw Babs Seed and Twist being all smooshy romantic, I was happy to oblige. I’ve absolutely fallen in love with this pairing, and I don’t get to do as much fanart as I’d like, so yay for the opportunity ❤

Thanks again Frog, and please everybody, go check out her work!

(Also, happy early Valentine’s Day!)

For some reason I’ve been having trouble getting back into the swing of things, art-wise, so I finished up this teeny sketch I did last summer.

OTP time is important too, anyway. And while I totally respect and am impressed by the openness of their relationship, the idea of these two beeeeeeee-yoooooteeful ladies someday getting hitched warms my hopelessly romantic heart.

Original is roughly 2 inches by 4 inches, btw.

So I’ve recently been introduced to (and positively inhaled) the Blythewood Series by Carol Goodman. It was wonderful, and though I’m technically done reading it and don’t have a lot of spare drawing time right now, I had to get some of the characters – and the feel of the fantastic world – down on paper. I have a feeling they’re going to be with me for some time, and I am very grateful and inspired.

From top left, clockwise (hah) – Avaline Hall, Raven, a couple that may stand for any number of loves in the story, Helen van Beek, Nathan Beckwith, Daisy Moffat, and Featherbell. And throughout, the Shadows, of course.

blythewood_faeriebrides_wm

From left to right – Miss Lillian Corey and Miss Vionetta Sharp.

“But how could I have even thought such a thing, when the only person I ever want to be with is you?”

If you’ve never heard of the series, seriously seriously go read it. It’s like Harry Potter, but with an all girls’ school and faeries!!!

(Birth as in rebirth, of the land, in spring.)

My Gnomish Persephone and Hades. I started this sketch a looooooooooong time ago, and honestly didn’t expect to finish it, but they inspired me today.
