A personal piece I did this evening, was sort of in a mood after hearing some people carry on about. One thing I will not understand about people from East Tennessee, is their inherent dislike of flying. Not just “I’m scared of flying”, but “I DON’T like flying.”
This piece specifically came about when one person I knew declared they would rather drive 15-17 hours someplace, and not fly a few hours to cover the distance. They were getting into a relationship with a friend of mine, and said friend sees not flying anywhere as an inconvenience. They complain how they want to go cross country, but can’t fly because their partner “doesn’t want to fly”, and eventually don’t go anywhere because it’s too far to drive.

Except last year, I pretty much try to get a birthday piece done every year. It varies in content, but it generally is characters of mine being kind or silly. This year I went for the former, and had my OC Jennifer, along with my blog mascot Yorina grab a seat with a self-portrait of yours truly. I rarely have myself depicted in artworks, so it was a little charming, to be honest.
As usual, I did the coloring and the background, and opted to use the station background from Rafferty’s Mobius as the backdrop. On top of my that, my Type-10 Obsidian Anvil is pretty prominent on the pad. It seems more mashed up with genres, but you can always count on me crunching genres like this together.

This was a piece that was drawn for me back in 2008 by the talented Amy Clark, but I had only tried to recolor with my new Photoshop skills. Came out a bit better and was glad that one of my favorite deviantART artist captured my OC, bringing her to life so realistically.
