March 2021

Am I several months late updating? I sure am! Fear not, I shall fix this problem. One day at a time though, because I’m a bit busy atm. I do want to get this blog sorted before this month ends too though.
So you’ll get March today, April tomorrow, etc.

While reminiscing and looking at old art, it got me thinking about my gradual adventure into creating a fursona, starting when I was about 9-10 years old and browsing art sites for the first time. I had no idea what a furry was, but I thought fursonas sounded cool. Thus I decided to create a squirrel-cat with purple fur, a blue gradient tail and rainbow markings. A series of changes and redesigns lead to me ending up with Red, my longest-running sona, in the middle there. And of course, since 2017, Caby!

You can check out Borb’s version of this right here, and her less linear, fluffy journey,,

No real story behind this one, just an experiment in colouring and lighting! A rather judgmental and a slightly more badger-esque cammy dressed in white. I like the general look of this one, despite the fact it makes no sense.

A piece of scenery for a change, something I drew while running a short quest for Cammy. Adventures in Pinede leading an otter lad down into a glowing cavern surrounded by bio-illuminescent lifeforms and a big, curious dragon! Considering this was for the most part a quick doodle, I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I did a couple other pieces that I’m sure will pop up somewhere on Somnol at some point!

Had the sudden urge to redesign my simple, cartoony self-portrait selves I used to doodle occasionally in high school. So here she is! Both in casual mode and comfy mode. I always draw myself with a round head and sleepy eyes, I’ve been told it’s accurate. Big eyebrows are a must too, of course.

I have an overabundance of traditional art supplies floating around in my room, despite the fact I rarely use them anymore. It’s more of a space issue than anything, I’ve no space on my desk for that sort of thing, so I have to go out of my way to set up my easel to draw, and it’s just easier to do stuff digitally when I’m usually already at my computer anyway.

Ramble aside, here’s a traditional piece I did of Fintan, looking very orange indeed. I had no eraser and am horribly rusty, so he came out a little wonky and scratchy, but overall I’m pleased, and I’d love to do more in future. Should be getting my desk replaced with a bigger one soon, so who knows,,

Last but certainly not least, a request from my family, who have been watching a lot of LOTR, to draw our two guinea pigs as a dwarf and a hobbit respectively. For those unacquainted, Rosemary is the orange and white one, and Marple is the black, orange and white one.

I had a lot of fun with this one too, and went a little crazy with the background, but it paid off and the drawing was a hit! And one can only hope that the piggos liked it too :3c
