Thursday Evening Post

Hey Guys! Bea here, and this time, I has new arts!

OctLoResFinally, something finished! Feels like it’s been forever since I’ve been able to do a full painting, considering I wasn’t feeling well enough to do it, but I’m so happy to be back on track, and I’m exciting about returning to some of the projects I started with my sketchbook exclusives too.

So, to tell you a bit about this illustration, the theme is burlesque, both are dancers, (for both sexes to enjoy because thats how it should be!) and it goes with the items I created for the month of October, for Gaiaonline.com.

— an odd coincidence because a lot of the art I’ve been doing lately  has been burlesque themed. I love it though, gave me an excuse to watch Moulin Rouge for the 100th time!That movie is friggen beautiful, guys!

On another note, a fun update from the 6 character commission that’s been in progress!

SethCharsloI am happy to announce that the lineup is complete for these character sketches, though, still a work in progress because everyone is naked right now :D. This commission is a challenging one though, in that I usually don’t get the opportunity to work with such unique body types, so a lot of research was needed to try and understand the anatomy of these characters while I worked. All in all, Im happy with how it’s turning out and even more happy that my client is happy :). annnd, in other news, I’ve just realized that I gave the men nipples and not the women o.o; hrm.

Anywho, I hope you liked this post– and I cant wait to bring you more as I’ve already started sketching with my fancy new art supplies 😀 So as always, enjoy!

Monday Evening Post

Get to Know Bea

Bea

I don’t know if it’s because I come off gender neutral online, but I have been mistaken for a guy many times. While I love me some mens, I’m not one of them 😛  So, for those who don’t know, this is me, Bea!

I’m a pleasantly plump, though a bit plumper in real life, black girl with freckles and glasses… and yes, I am a bit of a nerd according to my friends, and PROUD OF IT!

My hair is a big bundle of sisterlocks, that on a bad day looks like a lion’s mane, and I try to never leave the house without wearing the two bracelets my sister made for me. They’re like my good luck charms!

I’m am introvert– though I try to be more outgoing, I sometimes I fail >_< tragically, but I’m an optimist.  I pick myself up, learn from my mistakes and try again in hopes of a better outcome.  I’m also stubborn, as several friends have mentioned, and I agree 😀  I know who I am, what I believe, and I’m full opinions, but I don’t let pride get in the way of seeing other points of view. For that reason, my friend also mentioned that I am reasonable, when I’m stubborn. Like every human though, I do have my flaws, and I don’t shy away from admitting them.

Overall, I’m simple girl, and I find joy in simple things. Best things in life are free, kinda person, which in my opinion can be summed up in good company. And that’s me!

This drawing actually came about because I was asked to draw myself in the uniform of the House I would attend if I were in Harry Potter. Because I only saw the first film (simply because my attention span is so short, sitting through 3 hours can be agony for me) I did not know what I was doing… The first draft , I showed my friend Zygona, and was like “Look, it’s me in Harry Potta’s uniform!”  and her response was ” You just made up colors didn’t you..?”

I replied with a very shameful “……yeeeees”

So, the ever resourceful Zygona, pulled up a quiz, so that I could know what house i would belong in based on my personality. I got House Hufflepuff

For those of you who care to read– this is my test result

“You are nice, aren’t you? The kind of nice that takes an active role in civic affairs. The kind of nice that picks up litter off the sidewalk and puts it in the trash. You and your fellow housemates are the sort of reliable, trustworthy people who would spend their own birthdays manning a soup kitchen and joining a protest march, before settling down to a communal meal in which everyone has brought a lovingly-prepared dish.
In short, you’re the best friend anyone could ever hope for, and sometimes—in your quieter moments—that leads you to feel a little let down by other people who don’t meet those same lofty standards. It’s not nice to think poorly of your friends, of course, and you do understand their points of view, but a little more consideration would sometimes be nice. “

So with Zygona’s help, I re-drew my uniform and fixed my colors, and there you have it. Bea, of Hufflepuff! I now must honor Zygona by binge watching all the Harry Potter films.

Anywho, it’s a pleasure sharing this with you! til next time, Enjoy!
