Sketches, schmetches.

Ignore that title. I've ben sketching a little bit in the last few days. Nothing relevant to anything, actually, but I dunno. Maybe you'd wanna see 'em.

First up, just a doodle of a rudeboy. Funnily enough, my Specials buzz of the last few days has started to wear down. I've been listening to some trance instead, which is a horrific crime and a sin against my nature and blah blah blah. I was going to draw another rudy next to this fella, one a little more 2nd wave (t-shirt and tie combo, yo) but never got around to it. WEEP.

I've been looking up the Aztecs a lot recently, this coloured sketch should let you know who influenced me into doing so (AND GEE I WONDER HOW). So yeah. Coloured doodle of Xilxa. She's actually a very pretty character to draw, too bad I did her no justice.

And thus, while reasearching Aztecs I came across their ever so wonderful mythology and religion. I was then spurred to draw Coaltlicue, the cuddliest one of them all. This sketch isn't any good though. I'll be trying again from scratch, maybe in a little bit of more of a "me" style. I JUST WANT TO MAKE YOU MEXICANS HAPPY.

AND THEN, I started looking up the Celts too, and now when I'm done that, I wish to work on Cernunnos, the Lord of the Stags. He had antlers, you expect me to not draw him?

After all that claptrap, I'm thinking I want to enter the Schizophrenia contest on dA too. This'd be a grand opportunity for me to expand with the concepts of Rowan's schizophrenia I've been toying with lately. The auditory hallucination aspect of the disorder fits in more with how he's "communicating" with the dead, as opposed to say, a personality disorder, like DID (which schizophrenia is often mistaken for, which has nothnig to do with multiple personailities). It'd also give me a chance to explore his disorder in a negative way, make it an actual blight on his life. I know it's site-wide, and I don't have much of a chance to win or anything, but I still think it'd be interesting. I'll be messing with outlines on PS, so if they get donw, I can post them.
I'll be finishing up Erica's contest entry this week. too. YOU HAVE THE PATIENCE OF A SAINT. I'M SO SORRY.

On a final note, I had a dream about Flanders having sex last night. It was as horrible as it sounds.
