Fandom: Hey Arnold!
Character(s): Rhonda, Harold

So tired... )

a/n: I don't really know why I've been all Rhonda/Harold happy lately. I just love them.

I've also been meaning to put up a journal on DA about my thoughts on Rhonda/Harold-Eugene/Curly-Curly/Rhonda-Patty/Harold. For funsies.

Also, I once had someone basically say to me that Harold/Rhonda was gross because Harold was gross and didn't deserve her and it was the worst ever, because I love Harold SO MUCH and so it was pretty much the most worthless conversation ever. Also Harold being fat was brought into the discussion and I wanted to e-punch someone, because FAT PEOPLE EXIST AND DESERVE TO LOVE AND BE LOVED JUST AS MUCH AS ANYONE ELSE DOI! Beh.

I dunno, I just really relate to Harold on some level. I mean, I'm not really like him all that much, but there's some core part of his character that gets to me. It's got something to do with how he's cowardly and stupid and fat and he fucks up a lot, but he almost always comes through in the end. And when he does something wrong and knows it he usually feels SO GUILTY and just... he's big and dumb and sometimes a bully, but he's a good person.

Anyway, I love him.

You know the lies they always told you and the love you never knew... )

a/n: Also! I kind of want to do like a practice comic to see if I'll really be able to help out with the Hey Arnold!: Sixth Season Project. Basically this is a call for anyone who would be up to writing some sort of Hey Arnold! drabble/small dialogue to post it in a comment below and it might end up in comic format so that's kind of neat. No one has to, of course, but if you think it'd be neat to see something you wrote maybe become a comic then go ahead and write away.

Fandom/Universe: The Sims 2 (for Left Our Love)
Character(s): Don, Nina

I just want to know which one to go with... )

a/n: Um, so I decided to doodle up a cover for Left Our Love. [livejournal.com profile] showercapfrog mentioned about drawing out scenes, but I don't really think I'd want to take the time to do it, but I sort of got an idea of HOW I would draw things out if I decided to. Lots of sketchy, messy lines and grayscale and limited color schemes. So cover art!

The emphasis is actually on Nina, which is kind of okay and kind of not, but whatever. I was originally going to draw all the girls, but I thought it'd get too heavy and planning the composition would be a bitch and Nina's the girl who holds the most importance, so I'm cool with it.

So which version do you like? The only difference is that the second one's rockin' a little gaussian blur. I kind of like the fuzziness of the second one and kind of hate it. I'll probably end up going with my gut even if popular opinion decides on the opposite version, but I'd love any input.

Oh and the sketchy style of this is VERY heavily inspired by This Kingdom Hearts fancomic.

This is a pretty big art dump, BTW. 80 pics in all I think? )

a/n: Hey, I'm uhh.... not dead. I'm sort of on an e-break? Though I have stuff that I REALLY NEED TO DO and I will be doing that today/tomorrow and after that I am not sure if I'll be back-back or kind of disappear again. I feel kind of bad for flaking, but it's also been a really nice break from the internet.

I booted up Kingdom Hearts 2 like last Wednesday and have been playing it like a fiend ever since. I LOVE IT SO MUCH. I'm also trying to teach myself how to draw KH characters, because I have a really hard time adapting anime-influenced characters into my own weird ass style of things. :\

Anyway, I also scanned in a ton of old doodles/sketches from school notes and assorted drawing notebooks and some of it is really old and ugly and some of it is kind of neat. And it's a lot of mixed fandoms and junk. Lotsa HA!, some SHWC and original things as well.

a/n: I'm actually done with Chapter Seven of Trying. Y'see I do this crazy thing where I don't write for like ever and then one day I sit down and spout out OVER 5000 WORDS in the course of two days. *cries*

Seriously, I have like no sense of pacing.

I probably won't post the next Chapter for another day or so to make it feel like I have a nifty little buffer. I also don't think I'll be writing too much for a little bit. Break time again!

There's more that I really wanna do. The Erika/Giselle one, the Ternion trio and the one Ripp/Phi.

Hey everyone, I go on break tomorrow so my internet access will be limited for about a week. We have it at home, but I'll probably be busy with other things (i hope so at least - though neither of my BFFs are off...). But there definitely won't be fic/art for a week (i think, lol). Haha, it really doesn't sound like I'm going to gone that much, huh? Well, if I seem to be scarce next week that's why. But if it seems like business as usual, then okay too.

Anyway, some art and junk under here! )

a/n: I'm also totally planning to eventually do a post explaining what we know about La Corazon/the Journal/La Sombra in order to help people who haven't seen The Journal understand things a little better.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory hooked me up with Look Up and the Haunted Train mp3s recently and they are AWESOME. Look Up is so much fun. And now you can listen too!

notes: Helga in my own sort of style and looking purty and older and a fun Phi drawing? Ugh, I know they are not very interesting. :(

I drew you guys something now give me love. I'm like seriously stressed out about the stupidest thing right now and I'm making myself sick and it's so dumb and argh. Seriously, gimme crazy comments, half-assed fic, silly pictures of your toes - ANYTHING. I just want to stop being a miserable grump.

Now would you mind if I bared my soul? )


These are the original sketches that actually inspired the story. I made them a couple months back during a chat with other HA! fans. So far the plot is basically following these early sketches, but the original idea was that Arnold would basically be really out of it for most of the plot with lots of Helga physically protecting him.

Now it's more of Helga helping him emotionally than anything else. Arnold isn't the golden boy that he is in the series. This is an Arnold that's kind of on his last leg of hope.





If I came right out and said you're beautiful? )


A design of Helga's outfit that she is wearing at the start of the story. Not terribly exciting, but I am fond of the orange shoes. I'll probably never describe it in full and you can imagine a different sort of waitress-y look if you want, but this is just kind of what I thought up. :3

I don't know. Does the loneliness show? And, if so, does it ever end? )

a/n: I put this up at DA as well.

Was watching HA! eps today and just... I missed them. And it's been like FOREVER since I've drawn Helga and Arnold being just... Helga and Arnold.

But really, as perfect as Arnold seems to be, there's also this undercurrent of intense sadness to him. I think a lot of his light is banking on his parent's being alive. He's looking on the bright side, because he can't bring himself to stop believing that they'll come back one day.

But sometimes even the heroes need saving.

Bang bang, shoot 'em up, shoot 'em up, yeah... )

a/n: I-I finished it! Sorry for the RIDICULOUS wait. After I had to go through that whole miserable day of finding the picture when it got deleted my interest in the pic sort of died out. I was afraid I'd fuck it up big time and lose it for good and just... ick. It was rough. But I SWORE to myself that I would get this finished sometime this weekend and HUZZAH! I did!

It's currently 1440x900 pixels because that's my screen size, but if someone wants one that'll fit their screen perfectly just ask me and I'll make one up. Also, I wanted to put words at the bottom like subtitles to a movie, but wasn't sure what I wanted it to say.

Oh and the whole reason I did this picture is because of Cobra Starships "The City is at War". I was listening to it and then drew Johnny there holding his shovel and started filling in a hideous Phi beside him dressed kind of like a mobster and it just evolved from that idea. Also I made a short playlist to listen to while I worked on this picture! The songs on it were both loud and peppy, and soft and ANGSTY. I don't know why.
