Couple o’ Korra sketches. I’m really digging Book 3! The Avatar universe has always had so many awesome female characters, and I love that the most badass of this season’s new baddies is a double amputee woman. Glad to see the gang hitting the road as well — I’ve missed the journey narrative that was such a big part of the original series.

I’ve noticed recently that I’ve been approaching my drawings with a ‘fix it in post’ attitude — half-assing things with the expectation that I can just scan it and re-ink it digitally if it goes awry. Been making more of an effort to get by without an undo button and keep things traditional.

Dragonified my parrot. Which, it turns out, isn’t much of a change. Unsurprising, given that I’ve long suspected that I live with some sort of dragon-monkey.

I have a copy of the HTTYD2 art book on my studio bookshelf that I have yet to crack open, as much as new Nico Marlet art tempts me — I expect it would spoil too much of the film. All I want from this movie is some beefy viking warrior women in the main cast this time around. Beefy viking warrior women are the best thing about vikings.

My sister recommended Merlin to me some time ago, and after seeing it pop up in my Netflix feed enough times I finally checked it out. It’s fun and a bit cheesy and entirely adorable, and I ended up burning through all five seasons all too soon.  Genuine platonic love stories are far less common than the romantic sort, and whether because of or in spite of this, they’re my favourite sort of fictional relationship. Give me a great friendship over a great romance any day.
I saved the last few episodes for when I had a Sunday afternoon to myself, as I’m familiar enough with Arthurian legend to know how things would end. Still feeling pretty heartbroken right now, so I’ll do what I usually do to make myself feel better and draw silly things.
