I just spent the last five hours putting together an Imgur album of my artwork from the past ten years, for a couple of reasons. Biggest reason being I have mentioned being an illustrator/someone who draws but I’ve posted one measly drawing here (and a couple of doodads on my sideblog) and the shame from that is eating me alive. My mental health has taken a serious toll on the one thing at which I’m relatively skilled (I’m not the typical “crazy artist” that becomes more productive or does their best work when they’re depressed) so that’s why there hasn’t been any new art. There is, however, a great deal of old art that is no longer online since I nuked my old deviantART account and no longer have a personal website/portfolio either (because practically no one visited it). So my second reason for uploading my old art was to maybe, just maybe, encourage myself to start drawing again. Well, I have started drawing again already, but it’s been a struggle. There’s a tangled web of psychological bullshit to get over when all I want to is make art like I did before I decided hot gluing my fingers together was a fun new hobby.
ANYWAY, don’t be afraid of Liam Neeson’s wobbly face and feel free to take in my archive of everything from fanart to assignments from art school to teenage hormones. I might repost the best or most interesting pieces here if this gallery receives a significant amount of attention. If not, I’ll just leave the old stuff rot on Imgur and only post brand new material here.
I know I posted this at an ungodly hour last night/this morning and it isn’t cosplay which is probably the only thing most of you want to see from me, but please don’t ignore this. This is more or less a glimpse into my life before I took up cosplay so it would mean a great deal to me if my followers took a look (otherwise I wouldn’t have spent all that time setting this thing up). Many of the pieces in this archive I spent months on—mostly because I’m the World’s Slowest Artist™—so while there are some silly little things and some just plain shitty things (especially going back to the very early years) there are also projects to which I dedicated entire chunks of my adolescence. And there is Turn A stuff! So please check it out.
(I really wish it didn’t pick some random piece as the preview image and would’ve used the Turn A fanart I chose as the album’s cover instead)

I adored Wolf. He was my favorite part of the series and even at his worst, he was still adorable.
we were just watching this last night!

At ChaOZ, me and Loki were discussing how they wanted to paint eyes into their coat for a shoot, so i offered to do it digitally for them. With permission from them and Dez who took the amazing photo, i was allowed to do so, and this is the result!
I’m rather happy with it, considering this was my first proper time working my art into an actual photo of something real, and i spent more time fretting over it than i should’ve but i’m very pleased with the results.
A big thank you to Loki for being an amazing Alucard (in all forms) and to Dez for taking this amazing photo and letting me play!
Do Not Remove credits or artist comment, thank you.

These are all my pictures from Cosplay America. It was a little pricey for a first time con but I still had fun!
