Hello and welcome to my art blog!

A lot of this art is pretty old, but it's all tagged by year, so for new stuff look at my 2014 tag!

goODNESS GRACIOUS BASIL! Magical Melody was my first harvest moon game and my first husband so I have a very soft spot in my heart for basil

AGH RIGHT

since my first visit to McKay I’d noticed between the two stores they had several different reasonably priced Harvest Moon games and I sat on it for a while before I decided which one I wanted. I think I made the right choice! Basil is such a sweetheart u__u

I’ve been wanting to try a Harvest Moon game for a long time, and I finally got to try one last week when my boyfriend and I picked up Harvest Moon: Magical Melody for the Gamecube at a used bookstore called McKay (it’s one of my favorite prowls, if you’re anywhere near Chattanooga or Knoxville TN it’s worth the trip!)
I’ve been practically glued to it since then, I’m in the middle of spring of the second year (my horse is gonna dominate the horse race aaaaaaagh) and I’m married to this guy Basil (and also pregnant with his babby oops) and there is like no fanart of him why?? he’s a cute nerd who likes flowers and he tells you about veggies with lots of carotene and he is just too cute oh my god
it’s been forever since I’ve drawn a human.. even longer since I’ve drawn a man… eons since I’ve drawn an anime oh god it shows
edit: oops I got his quote wrong fixed it w/e

so every time I draw Riixti she’s always a little different, so in an attempt to get better at keeping her on-model after many drawings, I took some screenshots of her face and traced over them, so I could feel what drawing her correctly was like. Does that make sense?
The pink sketches on the left are hastily traced from screenshots, and the blue ones on the right are some practice ones with only the muscle memory and pink sketches for reference.
I drew her showing a lot of emotions I haven’t drawn her having yet, like extreme anger/aggression, laughter, sadness, and, um…
well, okay, that last one I have drawn before (I just haven’t uploaded any of it haha), but this is the first time I’m kind of happy with??

OKAY here is
riixti and ziatt yisss

Asura in GW2 have pretty androgynous bodies, with females being flat-chested and pretty much the only way to tell them apart with certain character models is the ears (or if they’re in their underwear girls have a onesie that goes up to their chest EVEN THOUGH canonically they have nothing to hide up there, it’s dumb)
anyway Riixti has a pretty “ugly” face that I think is fucking adorable but it’s not the cute kawaii giant eyed things that most female asura characters have, she gets mistaken as a dude all the time both in-character and out (I roleplay yes) so she just makes a game out of fucking with people’s expectations now

I started watching Game of Thrones this past week and the end of season 1 really got me down. As the ancient proverb goes, “The only thing worse than your otp dying is half your otp dying.”
so to make myself feel better I decided to draw an otp of mine that isn’t 50% deceased. It’s physically larger than most drawings I do (it’s like 1/3 of a page as opposed to approximately 3 inches) so it felt really empty without being shaded in so decided to do that too. I think it actually turned out pretty nice, considering it’s been 5 million years since I got beyond the rough sketch phase of anything
(I also have some nsfw art of these two but I’ll upload those later)

Riixti and her girlfriend boyfriend Ziatt being sentimental and all
I never did upload that nsfw art. I’m gonna redraw it later because the proportions are all wrong and they’re just bad
