Perry the Platypus

<Perry> : 20 minutes. Drawn on a mini-whiteboard with a few (supposedly erasable) whiteboard markers and Copics. 

I got bored halfway through class one day, and ended up drawing a random ditsy platypus. But we all know any hatted platypus is Perry, so I drew the hat as well. I later tried to erase the whiteboard markers, and it stuck to the board more then the copics (can you believe that?) so I gave up and left the drawing on the board. Luckily it’s mine.

That said, I can guarantee that at least half of the Chinese is correct, even if syntax or whatever is wrong. Individually the words make sense. It basically just says “Platypus Perry”.

Mystic Messenger 707

<707> : 5 minutes or so, January 2017. Drawn on regular scrap paper with a pencil.
It’s a little chibi 707 because I played the game quite some time ago now, and just absolutely love him and Yoosung☆. That said, 707 hates me and I haven’t finished his route once. He’s still great though. I should get around to doing V Route but I haven’t bothered to reinstall and check in daily yet, since that will be wildly time consuming.

Mid-October Update

My examinations are finally over, so I have more time to draw and write. That said, though, I’m not really one who remembers to update my social media (proven multiple times) so posting frequency will most likely stay the same. Sorry.

I’m kind of participating in Inktober? There’s not going to be a single cohesive style I’m using in Inktober because my focus is experimenting with different methods of drawing using ink and markers as my medium. My overarching theme this year is Mythological Creatures, and even if I don’t finish all within October I’ll still continue to do them past October. And, yes, I’m also following the official promptlist as far as I can.

I might have more activities coming up during the Christmas season, due to caroling around the city, but I’ll try my best to at least get something related to Christmas up each day of December until December 25. Try being the keyword, considering my overwhelming laziness.

Anyway, thank you for reading and/or following my blog! I hope you have a great rest of the year.

Matryoshka

What right do I have to drown
when others are in deeper waters?
What chance do I have to soar
when others deserve higher skies?
A call for help gone stale, ignored
Ensnared in a cage my own design

Lifeless matryoshka of wood and ice
Melting, rusting, rotting, breaking
A chance at hope now torn to shreds
Not good, not bad
Not high, not low
Not one will but glance at the now fallen snow

Haunted by a past
Played by a future
Trapped in a now so distant and so cold
It sleeps in a wait of a saviour again,
But nobody came.

Matryoshka, keeper, hummingbird, song.

Song

On this stage I stand
At the edge of glory
At the pinnacle of faith
The steps between life and death
I fall back, afraid
Knowing not my place

To which I belong, I ask
The open darkness, the humming light
Both heed not my question
Both heed not my call
Only fate will know
As I begin my song

And suddenly lost again
In the darkness of self
Ever shifting, ever swirling
I sing to my own darkness
And create my own lit path

I’ll climb, I’ll reach, I’ll find
The steps of hope and light
Until I win my place
By virtue, by right
To be by your side once more.

Godtier Egbert

<John Egbert> : About 40 minutes. Drawn on dotpict, an Android app, on phone with fat fingers.

I’m so excited that Hiveswap is out, but I haven’t even bought the game yet. What am I doing, really? Whatever the case, I’m glad I haven’t been too spoiled on it by my fervent following of Homestuck threads on their Google+ (who uses it? me that’s who ::::) ) and by scrolling through the Discord.

Instead, until I get the game and get around to playing it, I’m just going to post art of precious adorkable Heir of Breath. Pixel art is so much fun to make when you have a fixed palette to work with, though I have next to no skill in it. Dotpict is really really useful.

(I actually kind of wish JohnRox became canon but oh well :C )

Keeper

Fire and brimstone
The keeper of the hearth
Ocean of the lava
An infinite expense

Without the hearth
No warmth, no life, no light
With flames overwhelming
It burns, it blinds, it harms

Fire and brimstone
The keeper of the hearth
Braves every flame, every fire
Must kindle every piece, every part
Control the seas, skies, stars

A martyr of emotions and faith now lost
The price of other lives is but one death
The keeper of the fire, the guide to the flames
Devilish hummingbird to maintain the peace

Fire and brimstone
Against ice and wood
The colours of the keeper
The keeper of the hearth.
