Za'haran thinking about ending it

It was a long way down.

He didn't have to use his wings.

There was no point.  There was nothing in him.  He was nothing.  It didn't matter.  He didn't matter.

Za'haran shifted closer to the edge, automatically curling his feet against the wall n preparation for a takeoff.

Dive or just pin drop?

It didn't matter.  The result would be the same.  A terrible mess, just like his life.  He didn't matter.

I Choose You: Treecko!

treecko sketch

Wondered how long it would take me to start backsliding rapidly into realistic Pokemon tendencies.  It was already an epic struggle with the last two (Pikachu and Chikorita) to keep it looking at least vaguely like it might be pokemon style.

Chikorita sketch

10yo: CHIKORITA! :D Why's its leaf glowing?
me: Magic leaf. 

This one went a lot quicker than the Nereid sketch now that I know how the brush works.  Doing the background takes FORRREEEEEEVVVVAAAAARRRRRRRR.  Horrible, horrible lag.  Turns out I can do some detail work with it (if I make the brush miniscule).  Definitely not doing tattoos with it though, it will drive me insane.

This is the starter I would have picked if I'd played Gen2.

AER Nereid

This MerMay thing (whatever it is XD) gave a good enough excuse to draw examples of the Selkies and Nereids as they appear in the AER-verse (examples because they vary massively in appearance depending on...a lot of things).  I attempted a more "stereotypical" mermaid here which meant it's either an early Nereid or a reef/shallow water Nereid.  The ones that live in shallow water are more likely to resemble Base humans.  The ones that live out in the deep sea only bear hints that they evolved from humans.

Quickie because I spent most of the day playing PokemonTCG Online (I made a deck and play tested it, and had the computer crash, so then I started stress testing it by continuously playing and the computer started hanging more regularly, I think I have a ram issue so there is much memtesting in my near future, yay).  Might do the other generation starters I picked or would have picked (because I didn't play every single game, repetitive plot points were too repetitive even with allegedly exciting new storylines) if I'm not sure what else to do for sketchaday.

AER Selkie

Apparently there's a thing called MerMay going on where people are trying to draw merfolk this month.  Seemed as good an excuse as any to draw a Selkie as they are in the AER-verse.

Stag leap 3

1 single solitary comment

Even through the mat, the floor hurt.  Her ankles hurt.  Her muscles ached.  Hot tears sprang behind her eyes.  Rei sat up, her face growing hotter as the tears prickled.  She rubbed her arm across her eyes, trying to ease the stinging with counter-pressure and clearing out the ones that had escaped.

PIxietrix doing a stag leap

Little Miss Pixietrix liked both her pony version and Zara doing stag leaps so much that she asked for one of herself in a similar pose.  I save the base poses I use so I just pulled it up in Blender again, adjusted the arms and hands, we found a camera angle that she liked and then I did this grumbling all the way through as I have trouble doing real people, everyone has to be turned into a character XD Anyway here is Pixietrix the human in
