The [community profile] white_lotus Lunar New Year challenge is over, and I made one treat for it!
It is Mai/Zuko, SFW.
It's funny, because a lot of people mentioned the background as being the moon, which it wasn't meant to be- it was just a compositional element stuck in there because a blank background was boring. It's kind of oblong for a moon, although looking at it now the texture is totally moonlike.
I wanted to do more than one, but I was too busy- I've hardly even gotten to look over everything submitted. There are some super awesome crafts, though. I really want to make these dishcloths.

Yesterday was my birthday! I'm now one quarter of a century old. It's weird. I feel like I should have things more figured out by now, but I guess that's pretty common.

It's also my cats' birthday today! They are four years old.

Happy Hanukkah! I hope people's holidays are going well thus far.

I've started working on some things for the Lunar New Year exchange fest at [community profile] white_lotus- I really hope I can finish a few things. It's been so long since I've actually finished art.

Also, I seem to have made a friend at work, which is exciting! (Especially because the first co-workers I was working with were. uh. When I asked them to stop using gay as a pejorative, the response was "I can't make any promises! lol." The lol was unspoken, but there.) But this person seems nice?

It is interesting to me that I seem to attract the same kind of 'first friend' wherever I go- high school, college, my first workplace, always the first person I connected with was a certain type of geeky, highly opinionated person. She is a fan- we actually connected when she saw I was drawing Katara. I'm trying to suss out what kind of fan- is she into fic? I'm a little concerned that she's going to be like the woman I met at the NaNoWriMo thing- fannish, but really dismissive of slash and fanfic, and that always makes me sad. I never know what to say. But then, maybe she's not, which would be neat! Well, potentially, anyway. Why don't we have a secret handshake or something? Wasn't someone working on that awhile back?

I'm trying to get back into drawing. Again. I think I'm going to try to post some sketches at least twice a week, maybe do a sketch every day, at least for a little while, as a way to try to get back in practice and get past my own perfectionism. The plan is then to pick one sketch a month and turn into a completed piece, although who knows if that'll happen.
Today the subject is Toph! Because she is awesome. All are SFW.

Okay, and by 'tomorrow' I apparently meant 'several days from now'. WHATEVS. To compensate for my lateness, they have color! Here is the art what I drew for people:

For [ profile] mizzmarvel, Aqualad, jellyfishing
For [ profile] rubynye, Gaila and Kory
For [personal profile] petra, Don and Cosmo, backstage
For [personal profile] cmshaw, Kory, loud
For [personal profile] brownbetty, Sokka, pleased with himself
For [personal profile] ratcreature, Kirk meets a tapir
For [personal profile] odditycollector, Amanda Waller

That was fun! Mmm. Drawings.
