Ira in the top one is just like "dksgjslgwhy"
I've been talking to Emily ( SHOUTOUT WHOO) about this figure skating story and she actually helped me by suggesting injuries as a reason Noelle could have quit skating as a kid (which I'd considered) because then I realized I could make the injury have had happen when Noelle was doing pairs skating, but it wasn't her who was injured, it was her partner. So I think she felt a lot of guilt for that as a child and decided to focus her energy on clothes which she's always loved too, anyway.
But skating with Ira has opened up her love back up for pairs skating. Noelle loves to skate by herself, but there's a thrill and connection she gets with pairs by being so in sync with someone. And this someone is Ira weeeh ;_;
(I just realized Ira is too much taller in the top one? bc she's not at an angle enough, but w/e shhhh no one cares)
omg thank you so much, like, I don't want to say "I KNOW" because that sounds... idk but goddamn it I DO KNOW. And I'm so happy about it. I mean I've drawn a lot my whole life, and drawn more and more in middle school and high school as they went on, but never to this extent that I've done this year. Like, pretty much the whole year of 2013 I've drawn way more than I ever had.
Part of it I think was discovering things I could do with digital art back in December/January (I had a tablet for years but always felt I was terrible at digital lol and I mean I'm still learning ovbs). And then around April or something I kind of revolutionized/had an epiphany about the way I draw faces that improved my consistency a LOT which I always felt I struggled with.
And I mean obviously I'm way more adept at anatomy this year (I've been studying it even more) and I do feel there's a ton more movement in my work than there was before bc I don't even know
I'm just more confident in my work I guess?? I mean I've always liked it to an extent but I was unhappy with a lot. Not to say I'm not still striving for improvement constantly, of course- every artist should always be striving for improvement/growth. I'm just really happy I feel more comfortable with my stuff despite the fact I want to be so much better.
omg I'm so sorry I just wrote a bunch about myself
oh no really??? ;_; I love your art though. ever since that coldest and the boldest fanart ugh <3 that one is probably my fav fanart of that fic.
xmdgjsdlkgjl ok good and LOL no that doesn't sound creepy xD
I AM GONNA DIE IF YOU RLY DRAW THEM
I'M SO EXCITeD
Argh such precious bbys, why I cry That top one is adorable, it's like Noelle just fell asleep against the wall and slid down and he's having an internal battle over what to do "Do I move? Do I wake her up? Do I leave her? WHAT DO I DO?!? " and then he moves and her head falls against his lap
AND ADJLAFJL RIGHT?? I'm sure he would try to move and it would end up getting worse. The struggles of Ira's life tbh.
Wehhh thank you so much!!
