Oh well, at least I got two Doctor Badges done? [Eighth Doctor and Scruffy Eighth Doctor, if you must know.]
Everyone probably knew this was coming.
I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT THIS COMMERCIAL
I was just thinking about these commercials and how I wanted one on my tumblr, and now here it is!
Awkward confession time: whenever I feel like the world is shit and I can’t keep dealing with it, I watch this and/or read about cool science things to remind me that it’s not all bad.
Okay, listening to the Last Trial while working on new badges might have been a bad idea. I’m having intense ship feels…
Fuck you, Raistlin Majere and Crysania, for having the prettiest duets and sending me sailing off on your ship through time and space.
I’ve updated my Requests, Trades, and Commissions journal with new pricing for prints (sans shipping costs, naturally).
I’ve dropped the prices on some things - Bookmarks and Buttons are now $3, Wallet Sizes are now $2 (and 5 for $5) - and I’ve fixed the pricing on other things so it matches the sizes better.
I’m still working on figuring out how I intend to break up my commission pricing, but I think I’ll figure it out… eventually.
New 13x19 print for Boston Comic Con onwards, illustrating one of my favorite fairy tales (or, rather, one version of it), that of Beauty and the Beast.
I will say this: I hate hate hate hate hate hate color-blocking flowers. I had to make my own reference photos on the exact positioning to get it to look right on the fly, in a refrigerator. And I was wretched torn about adding color to those roses or not, but it does break up the heaviness of the black.
I did like how the stylized ringlets came out on Beauty, though I’m not quite sure what prompted me to go with the hair ornamentation that I did.
The prince’s human form being rendered as a soldier at the top refers back to the Bearskin stories, in which a starving soldier makes a bargain with the devil to wear a bearskin as a coat and not bathe or shave for seven years in exchange for awesome money and, due to his virtue, manages to win the bargain - sort of. Turns out, the devil wins regardless of the soldier making it, as in most stories the devil gets the souls of the soldier’s brand new wife’s sisters, who are so supremely jealous that they off themselves or die on the spot.
However, there are some hints he’s not an ordinary soldier in the image: namely, on the buckle across his chest, there’s a globus cruciger, which symbolizes his authority. He is also carrying a sword in a position that isn’t quite parade - it’s actually closer to traditional iconography used with swords of state.
Now available as a print on Society6!
