A compilation of some of my favourite recent sketches.
All depicted characters, save for the first photo, are original. First sketch is Xensa, who belongs to scouty-scooter.
I’m doing a persuasive speech and this would really help me out.
If you think animals should be adopted from shelters, reblog.
If you think animals should be bought from pet stores, like.
Fairy rings occupy a prominent place in European folklore as the location of gateways into elfin kingdoms, or places where elves gather and dance. According to the folklore, a fairy ring appears when a fairy, pixie, or elf appears. It will disappear without trace in less than five days, but if an observer waits for the elf to return to the ring, he or she may be able to capture it. They are soooooo beautiful!
fairy rings are usually caused by decaying organic matter, generally a tree stump. many types of fungi have symbiotic relationships with tree roots and mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of such fungus. So if a huge old tree was cut down, you’ll often find fairy rings. they can last for years and years as the earth reabsorbs all the nutrients left behind by the beautiful tree.
sorry, didn’t mean to crush dreams - but i have a degree in horticulture and i was really excited when i first learned this.
maybe fairies and fungi are joining together to mourn the loss of the tree
NO BUT FINDING OUT ABOUT WHY FAIRY RINGS EXIST IS ALSO REALLY COOL.
From a writer’s perspective, it’s even more interesting to find out why they exist on a horticultural level, because it opens up a whole realm of fictional possibilities. Science doesn’t have to invalidate mythology or fiction, no more than mythology or fiction invalidates science.
For example, doesn’t that just essentially make this a tree grave? And if folklore has taught us anything, it’s that “fairies” and other spirits usually occupy trees, or have them as their life force. And that’s to say nothing of the folklore of trees being spirits in and of themselves, or kitsunes that live in tree hollows, or dryads, etc., etc.. So, if it’s disrespectful or feels like a slight to step on human graves, wouldn’t that logic transfer to stepping inside the Fairy Circle, AKA, the tree’s grave? It’s essentially giving more fuel to the story, not detracting from it, in my humble opinion!Science doesn’t have to invalidate mythology or fiction, no more than mythology or fiction invalidates science.
Oh my god the fucking irony here.
I NEED YOUR MONEY:
I have not been well lately, and on top of rent, food and travel costs, I’ve had to deal with the cost of a fuck tonne of antibiotics. Oh, and right, the tertiary educational system wants to bend me over and screw me royally of every cent I have by charging me a ludicrous amount for the books I need for this trimester.
So, I have a proposal, okay no, it’s less dignified than that. I have a request: please, please let me draw for your money. I have no job experience, and no job, and as anyone knows, that is a goddamn lethal combination.
I will draw anything for anyone, charging $30-60 for anything that will allow me to finish within a week and $60 for anything anyone wants me to finish within 24 hours.
I am especially happy to draw ocs, because I enjoy that, but I’ll draw you anything; even if it is disgusting and depraved and offensive, I will draw it because goddammit I need to eat and I need a roof over my head and I need money quick while searching for a job.
The above collage will give you an idea of the sorts of things I do, and how much I’d charge. Of course, prices can change depending on what is asked for, and things like time frames can affect the price of commissions too.
Please, please help a brother out.
If you are at all interested, private message me here on tumblr and we can start sorting things out.
Hey, everyone, not sure if anyone who follows me will be interested, but I need money and I will draw bad things and good things for sweet, sweet cash.
YOU NIQQAS WANNA LEARN ELVISH?! HERE YA GO!
is this legit?
This is legit. My husband, sitting across the room, looks over and says, “IS THAT SOMEONE SHOWING HOW TO CONVERT ENGLISH TO TENGWAR? BECAUSE THAT’S THE WAY!”
Believe this man. He owns atlases of Middle Earth, the complete history of Middle Earth (leatherbound), and has read the books at least 150 times. Also: speaks elvish.
What if there are two vowels in a row?
Does anyone know the answer to that last question?
THIS IS SO EXCITING
THIS IS SO COOL OMG
If there are two vowels in a row, you use a carrier placeholder. It’s a plain straight line, like the letter i without a dot, that just exists to hold extra vowels.
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT
this is important

SO YaY here it is. All Finished. Or more like I am tired of working on it. So here I am as if I were a Stark of Winterfell with my direwolf. Yes I know that direwolves are not common place in the Stark household since only Ned Stark’s children got them, but I wanted one of my own. Well because who else doesn’t want a giant bad ass wolf that can rip out people’s throats. I named the wolf Blight…well because that was the first thing to come to mind and it’s also a bad ass name.
This is my Demo Reel. I kept forgetting to throw this up here. I made everything in here. So Yes enjoy.
