So I'm sometimes a terrible friend. Not only do I have my best friend's belated birthday gift from last week, I also still have her christmas gift and a gift I got her to make up for the ticket she bought me for the Andrew Bird concert in September. Sep-fucking-tember, you guys. I have the best intentions, but the post office is so far away. Like way down the street and around the corner.
So I made Mao a momento mori style belated birthday image that I'll slap on a card for her. I also figured I'd show what my drawings sometimes look like.
Here's how it looks like at first, I like drawing in color pencils, I just dig the way they feel and I start with a light color for sketchy lines and work my way into a more finished drawing with darker colors.
Honestly that is a more finished drawing than I've been doing lately, haha. I'm kind of sloppy and all over the place when it's just something for me and nobody else sees the process. I also haven't scanned since May. I should probably start doing that instead of photoboothing because I'm lazy and generally do all my work from 1am and later. The scanner the house is in a bedroom, not so useful at 1am.
There is the finished. I rushed it and didn't take a huge amount of time, but it's cool seeing as it's only going to be a small thing as a joke.
That millipede is freaking adorable.
