Checking my files, I actually do have some artwork to show, even if it’s just sketches. So here we go!
I’m currently in that stage with the baby where he’s allllllllmost crawling. He scoots around on his belly and finds toys on his own, so I have entire minutes to myself again. Our usual routine is that our morning is spent doing school or chores, and the afternoons are nap or screen time. That’s when I get to draw or whatever. But the baby doesn’t have that routine yet, so I feel like I have zero time to do anything extra.
My life is intensely boring. 😀
On the plus side, a boring life means that I want to write and draw adventurous things, so there’s that.
So that’s what I’ve been up to. Living in my head a lot, not doing much else except keeping children alive being a mom.
I was reading H. L. Burke’s Lands of Ash and I kept thinking how I’d love to make a better cover image. So I started messing around with a stock photo model and a nice scribbly background.
It came out all right, so I started refining it.
…aaaand that’s when I dropped my tablet and broke its USB port. So here it sits, and I haven’t fixed the fire elemental yet, and it’s gnawing at my brain … I MUST FINISH IT.
So instead of a heartbreakingly expensive Wacom tablet (the one I just broke), I’m going to buy the cheapest of cheap off-brand tablets. Likely it will last a decade, like my last cheap off-brand tablet did. :-p
