A brief bout of cuteness overload (and other stuff like that)

Over Thanksgiving break, my mom was digging through some old CDs, and found a bunch of old photos in the process. They were all from around 2007, when I was about four years old.

I had no memory of when we had gotten two of our cats-Anakin and Padme-because, y’know, I was really little. (They are both about 10 years old, cousins, and totally inseparable <3) So I was surprised when my mom uncovered these…

This is little kitten Padme!!! AAAH! HOW WAS SHE EVER THAT SMALL????? (She’s kinda overweight now, poor thing. Sorry, Padme…)

And here’s little kitten Anakin!!! This, along with most of the other photos, were taken on the day we adopted this little Sith lord. What a cutie.

Spending time with his loving cousin. Look at those eyes!!!

Um…don’t know what’s going on here…

…Hugs?

 

Along with the kitten pictures came a photo of me on Halloween when I was about three. I was Princess Leia, for the second time (I had been her when I was two as well).

Great expression, huh? So regal.

 

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my unannounced slew of kitten pictures as much as I enjoyed seeing them. Meow.

I know you’re sick of my weird mermaid-like things by now, but…

Okay, so last month, I was feeling a little bored. I had no idea what to draw, but I started drawing anyway. Eventually, I came up with this vaguely feminine creature that had octopus tentacles instead of hair, blue, rectangular pupils, and blue, slightly large lips. Oh, and did I mention, she’s also dripping wet.

This was the process of drawing her.

First pencil…

…Then traced over with ink pen…

…and finally, colored in with marker-pens.

 

Since then, this octopus girl has oddly captured my imagination. I then began to draw her everywhere-she’s found her way into my Spanish notebook, on the edges of data sheets for Science class, a few sticky notes, and most importantly, my sketchbook. I’ve drawn, inked, and colored her twice more since the first drawing. Both times, I’ve dressed her in a Car Seat Headrest shirt (with the album art of Twin Fantasy) and faded, ripped jeans for no apparent reason. I’ve also added some song lyrics to the drawings.

I did this one just last weekend. The lyrics are from what recently became my new favorite song, “Beautiful Freak” by Eels.

I finished this one yesterday. This one’s got some lyrics from “Everything Now” by Arcade Fire.

 

I’ve yet to see where this octopus girl will take me next, but it should be interesting.

 

 

 

I can’t think of any other creative ways to say that I have a bunch more fan arts

So yeah…

My drawing amount has slowed slightly after my last fan arts post (See Fan arts, fan arts, everywhere), but I’ve still got a bunch that I’m super psyched to show you guys! Here you go!

I drew this while in Vail last weekend among the beatiful aspen trees. What I’ve sort of surmised is that this is some sort of tree-elf-fairy thing. I still really don’t know.

*fingers crossed that I spelled his last name right…can’t remember how 🤦‍♀️

My creativity gets (slightly) out of hand…(Or “I’m a complete nerd”)

On Monday, it snowed about a foot, and was snowing for most of the day. (That’s Colorado weather for ya…snow in early October…) I was one of about a third of the class who remembered their snow gear, and so I was allowed to roll around in the snow.

So, I took advantage of the moment and rolled around making snow angels. After a few minutes, I decided that regular snow angels are boring. And thus, Snow Maleficent was born. All I really did was draw little horns on its head. Looking back, I could easily have added her staff, but I had other plans.

The next snow angel I made was the Snow Angel of Death, based off of the Angel of Death from Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Here’s a picture of him if you haven’t seen it:

hellboy-2-angel-of-death-1005118-1280x0.jpg

Sweet dreams, kids…

All I achieved Monday was the head, the little wing-eye things, and little marks on the wings to make them look like feathers. I really couldn’t remember much else, and by that time, recess was over.

By Tuesday, I had looked up a picture of the Angel of Death, and there was still snow on the ground. So, I improved on the design, adding the crack in the head, and a too-big smile. Both times, I forgot the weird rib-pattern (or real ribs? who knows) on the robes, but hey-it sorta looked like the Angel of Death…

Sadly, I have no pictures of my snow-angel creations, but you can sorta guess what they looked like. Maybe. Not really.

 

Yeah, sorry about the random tangent there, I just figured it would be fun to write about.

Also, on the subject of Hellboy, I figured I’d also just put in this Hellboy II clip that always either a) makes me crack up or b) makes me hold in more laughter than is probably healthy…

 

I’ve been watching this clip for months on end…help…

Okay, I’ll spare you more geekiness…bye.

Happy (almost-a-week-belated) Birthday, madelinetodd.com!

So it appears I forgot this website’s 2nd birthday…shoot.

But hey, at least I remembered the BRT on Tuesday, right? Right? Riiiiiiight?

So this year, I suppose we won’t really have any extra book reviews and memes and stuff, but…uh….

…I guess I’ll…

…give you a ridiculous amount of GIFS?

Nevermind, I know you’re tired of those. I’ll just put some random memes. Okay? *weak smile*

…yeah, sorry. I’m saving my fan arts posts until I have more fan arts, and I don’t have any more “big reveals” or anything, sooooo….

Um….bye! *awkwardly waves at you*

WondLa Myers-Briggs! (Reprise)

As I said in my last post, I’ve made some changes to the WondLa MBTI chart that I posted a few months ago (I deleted it). I switched around a few of the types, Redimus is now an INTJ, and I put the types in a reasonable order. I also made it look *fancier* as well. So, without further ado, here you go!

Screen Shot 2017-08-03 at 1.07.26 PM.png

Now that I’ve made some changes, Rovender is an ISTJ-and I am an ISTJ! Yay!

Feel free to tell me your character/type in the comments, and I hope you liked this!

Also, I’ll try and make the Wings of Fire MBTI happen soonish!!! 😉

 

This is Me From Now On (Reprise)

(See This is Me From Now On for original drawing)

Hey guys!

So yesterday, I was thinking of making a new logo/look/thing/whatever for Neon Cheetah, and I came up with…two. I’ve drawn the Neon Cheetah character in various drawing of mine, but these were more intended as ones for things like profile pictures. These were the two I came up with.

Screen Shot 2017-07-28 at 9.13.03 AM.png

This one was more just for kicks and giggles. Pretty fun to draw.

Screen Shot 2017-07-28 at 9.13.12 AM.png

This one was my favorite of the two, which, as you might see, is now my profile picture and stuff. Like it?

Well anyway, happy Friday, and be sure to check out some of my other posts (book reviews, fan arts, etc.)!
