Shark in a Bottle

Meggie
27/female/USA

I illustrate and assist in writing the webcomic GREEN LION.

I draw a whole lot of OCs. Besides drawing, my primary hobby is tabletop RP (currently using the GURPS system). I also love X-Factor Investigations, Star Wars, Evangelion, L.A. Noire, Dragon Age and China Mieville.

I'm perfectly okay with people making icons and such out of my stuff, but please credit with a link back to me. Don't edit and resubmit my work to your gallery.

I love watching LPs while I draw, and I’ve been enjoying listening to Off so much that I stopped the LP so I can actually play the game for myself some day. Hopefully soon.

I saw Prometheus largely because I love androids. I was not disappointed.
In other news, drawing real people is not one of my strengths.

But the rabbit jumps back in its hole, and I forget that I am just like everybody else.

artist-confessions:

So far I’ve never given in to that feeling since I’m afraid of being called out for it. I just hate being this indecisive over my art and that irrational need to have many people look at my art and like what I made since my self-worth shouldn’t depend on it. ._.

I gotta warn you, it doesn’t really work that way. I’m a pretty prolific artist in the Homestuck community, though I’m by no means super famous. Still, I usually do at least once piece of fanart a week, and my Homestuck stuff rarely pulls in less than 200 notes nowadays. Sometimes it tips the 1000 mark. It’s exciting every time.
But….. this doesn’t bleed over to my original stuff. I’m thrilled if I get more than 10 notes on things for my own webcomic, or just regular OC art. The bottom line is that you’ve just got to draw what you enjoy and keep putting yourself out there. Attention for your own original work will come if you work at it, but fandom fame isn’t a reliable route. If you want to draw fanart for a wildly popular fandom, do it, it can be loads of fun, but there aren’t often many tangible rewards for it.

I was going to add a jungle and shit but then I got lazy. The figures are still pretty cute, though, even if they look closer to 19 than 15.

BAM, done. Got lazy and skipped the background, but the rest came out neat.

Small section of the WIP. 8( I want to do something really neat with the coloring, BUT I CAN’T THINK OF WHAT. I have no idea if I’ll even finish it at this point, but I did at least color his face nicely.
