Thank you all for so many favorites/watches/comments! I'm sorry I haven't had time to respond, but they are all greatly and dearly appreciated.
Tranquil Mind by TerhuneLass
Tranquil Mind
The title sounds like a bad Zen or Feng Shui book.
If this STILL isn't straight - I swear...

A gift for my good friend, and fabulous fellow artist on dA, :iconhappyfridge:
They've been going through a lot lately, and, like most wonderful people, are burnt out from trying to stay strong for such a long time. It isn't much, but I wanted to give them something of a pick-me-up. Corgis are one of their favorite dogs - and I'm the crazy-dog-lady, so, it fits. The dinosaurs are something of an inside joke. And the bird is personal symbolism, I suppose.
In any case - good luck HappyFridge! Hang in there. It DOES get better, and you're never lone, even if you think you are. :heart:

Glass half empty,
Glass half full,
Well either way you won't be going thirsty.
Count your blessings, not your flaws

I meant for it to be a lot more detailed in shading and fur definition, but the universe conspired against my layers, and no amount of working backwards, frontwards, sideways, or upside down was going to let me fix them to make them work. Ah, well.

Enemy, Familiar Friend,
My beginning and my end,
Broken truth, whispering lies,
And it hurts again

Red - Nothing and Everything…

A 1 hour doodle I did to relieve some stress and work out a few story ideas. Which means this piece probably only means something to me, ahahah...
Not sure why the hyena/bear (didn't look at any reference photos for anatomy, so it got a little odd) is green, but hey. I'm going to say it works.
About 15 minutes total for the sketch, the rest of the hour was messing around with settings and fiddling with techniques. Not sure I love it, really, but it was the first piece in a very, very long time I did without judging or minding how it turned out.
So, on dA it goes. Sorry, internet.
And actually - it is NOT vent art. I tend to draw creepy things when I'm in a good mood, and happy things when I'm upset or sad. Art works in strange ways...

Apparition by TerhuneLass
The last year I've been trying to improve my anatomy. Which means I've been getting worse at it! Ahahaha...aha...ahhhhhhgh.
So today I just picked up a pen and started drawing - no erasing, no reference, no sketch. And somehow it turned out more anatomically correct than the ones where I tried!
Typical. I have the same problem with reference photos...when I use them, my art is terrible :la:

My OC Coyote (the...coyote. From Native American Mythology) being fabulous. He looks a tranquil here - which is something he never is.

When I drew this originally, in bright red pen, the patterns looked like muscle striations. Pretty proud of that, seeing as it was completely unintentional :)

A big thanks to :iconcanisalbus: for their art stylization giving me inspiration to not give up on anatomy, but also just be myself :3
SketchDump_01 by TerhuneLass
Ridiculously big file - but like usual I forgot to change the dpi, and it's late so I'm not changing it now!
Finally got around to making a compilation of sketches and works I've done in the past...few years. Some of these pieces are old, some are rather recent.
The painting in the corner was done mostly to make myself paint *something*, even a sloppy, anatomically-troubled faerie boy having a...moment. Yep!
Several sketches are characters from novels I have going, some are random canine critters, a few people (yes, I actually can draw those!), and, inexplicably, if you look closely: Sora from Kingdom Hearts hanging out in the corner. He just decided to show up to the party.
Several of these are works-in-progress - please do not use or re-post anywhere, thank you :)

The bird is a Crested Kingfisher. I like them c:
There is a Jomon Shiba in the middle
The dog with a cloak/weights is Penitence - a new character who lives up to his name
Gremlin the scary Collie mix is looking at you
Coyote shows up frequently... no coyote, don't eat that humming bird! D8

Hey everyone,
I wanted to both apologize and explain my recent decrease in activity here. It has nothing to do with art, and everything to do with outside forces, namely college. I just needed a (long) while to collect myself, and sadly it's still ongoing. I have had next to no time to do art, or if I did, not much inspiration. Stress does that, I suppose, and my usual first reaction to stress is reading!
Still, I have been doing work - namely sketches and pen doodles - that I more or less just haven't deemed worthy enough to display publicly.
However, if there is a strong enough interest in my work to see some things - the usual canines and animals abound, with quite a few people interspersed - I will make an effort to upload and share with everyone.
In the meantime, I am still doing artwork, and hope to muddle through college a little better so that I can properly devote some time to art.
It will be a much-needed renaissance, I feel, though I can't say when in the future we'll get to witness it.

Sorry for the delay in thanking you for adding my stock photo of the "front porch and yard of a Victorian era house with a flowering lavender tree" to your favorites. :)

Tag a quality deviant, You're it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you're nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don't care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! ♥

remember your blender project 2 years ago? yea, this brought back some good memories
TerhuneLass Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013  Hobbyist
OH. MY. But did they spend 9 weeks of countless hours toiling to honestly make it a wonderful short, hoping that they have found their calling and that maybe it could serve as a demo reel for animation college only to have their hopes and dreams ruthlessly crushed by blender failure and a spiteful twist of fate? I don't THINK so! :iconsadsighplz:

And I have news. Are you prepared? Are you sitting down? Okay:
I FOUND IT. I HAVE IT ON MY FLASH DRIVE. It is waiting to be made into a movie again...waiting...

Urrghhh...but I'm DETERMINED to figure it out. I will entertain the world. Heck, maybe it'll go viral in a new internet sensation...
