Almost definitely getting sick and not up to much, so this is seriously just a doodle. Ugh.

Rounding out the trifecta in what’s apparently a series on the main party ladies of FFIV, Porom. Gave her big ol’ baby cheeks. I’m focusing on the original game, not TAY, but definitely took inspiration from her TAY look — pink streaks in the hair, turned the cowl… thing… into closer to a wrap, and angled the stripes on her torso. But mostly it’s just that her official CG render creeps me out. She’s five, for fuck’s sake =|

[Rydia] [Rosa]

Like with yesterday’s Rydia, I wanted to give Rosa more distinctive facial features/shape, along the lines of this Amano art… the CG in the re-releases is pretty and all, but there’s a serious case of generic ladyface. I love emphasizing her archery. Her bow is loosely inspired by Princess Zelda’s from Twilight Princess.

Oh, wow, I really love this one (and I adore Rosa for being a white mage archer, a combination one doesn’t often see).
You’re doing fascinating things with line art and color in these. 

Thank you! I love her job class combination and roll around in it at every opportunity. I’m glad you like the line stuff! Mostly just experimenting with paying more attention to flow =)
Also, “morning” reblog and added links to illustrate what I mean by generic ladyface. They’re such distinctive and different characters; they deserve way more character in their faces than that =\

"I prayed to you, Cas. Every night."

"I know."

welp. didn’t need that heart anyway.

My tax situation, as summarized by heyheyrenay. Startlingly accurate, followed by this when I discover how awful self-employment taxes are:

Please note that last year I managed to file in 4 states (FOUR STATES, I filed in 8% of all the states) with itemized federal deductions for medical expenses (BOY HOWDY WERE THERE EVER MEDICAL EXPENSES), all on my own. Even after that, this year I am just stumped.

Quick sketch as I try to get into drawing for myself more. Was meant to be a Belgae/Belgic lady warrior to match the Belgic horse, but oh well, I sort of like whatever it turned into. References [horse] [body (general reference)] [armour, from here]
