I was doodling again. Clearly I can’t draw firearms. :PBut I can draw asymmetrical haircuts.

But Confucius has answered them with the final whistle, it’s all over. Germany, having trounced England’s famous midfield trio of Bentham, Locke and Hobbes in the semi-final, have been beaten by the odd goal.

so far i’ve seen southern, southwestern, and northeastern gothic, but nobody’s talked about how great MIDWESTERN GOTHIC could be. listen:

  • weird happenstances in fields, bloody pawprints and pressed-down cornstalks, a clump of soybeans flattened into esoteric shapes
  • small towns with big secrets multiplied by a thousand, uncanny locals with a hand for spells
  • mysterious hitchhikers with glowing eyes on the side of a dimly-lit highway
  • taking detours down a backwoods dirt road, getting entranced by the glowing lights in the thickly knotted woods (sure are a lot of fireflies out there. i’ll take a look. just for a moment.)
  • dilapidated buildings, the old falling-apart house in the empty lot at the end of the road you always avoid without knowing why. the crumbling farmhouse by your grandparent’s place in the country that calls to you when you drive past it in the dark
  • billboards proclaiming HELL IS REAL, mile upon mile of windmills that uproot themselves and rearrange in the night
  • always traveling, the significance of crossroads, staying in a shoddy old hotel advertised with a flickering neon light, surrounded by miles of pavement
  • more weird field happenstances because fields are so important. mint that can charm a village, blueberry patches with torn and dirty pieces of fine clothing in them. unnatural noises from cornfields at night, figures near it that can only be glimpsed out of the corner of your eye

…this is actually my life.

Here’s your historical hetalia stuff, featuring fem!America (because fashion is for all genders). Stay tuned next time for something across the pond. Maybe…

If you wanna take a guess at what’s what, be my guest, not that it’s too complicated (then again, I did the crazy amounts of research, so perhaps I’m not the best reference on how well everyone out there’s gonna do, But I’m hopeful).

Excuse me while I tend to my dying hand.

I was trying out some character designs… This reminds me a bit of Heian era Japan.

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!

I’m still finishing up colouring the fem!America one, but the designing/drawing parts come really easily. So here’s fem!england. Don’t worry, I’ll do the regular dudes to, not just nyotalia. It’s just kinda annoying to have mostly guys to draw when there are so many gorgeous dresses… also big hair.

If you wanna take a gander at what eras these are, be my guest. :)
