So, I bought a new phone, which arrived today, and I like it
And yet I'm afraid to talk about it with anyone, because it might seem that I'm throwing out too much money lately... but I swear I have my monthly limits. ;_;
Shop Prints Here ~ more coming soon
Studied a bearded dragon this time! And the pose. Tried to see how I can easily break that down, and how those folds might behave or come from. Also tried to take a closer look at how the scales/spikes are formed.
The circle-placement worked really well, but isn't what I would have expected to work. They are just so much neck. Tbf, the head and the neck transition doesn't look really well in my sketch.

Some things that I doodled up during a D&D session. Trying to doodle some ideas what I want my sona to look like.
The first one was just a quick for fun sketch
The second one was an actual try to test some designs.
I would love to add more details to the neck and not have it just be a mass of fur. It will stay a mane, but I want to tangle stuff into it.
I was also experimenting with horns, crystals, long stuff, etc. on the body. Then I was also starting to think - from the real world perspective, if there would be such an animal, what would it need to survive? That much fur surely creates a lot of heat which needs to be drawn out. Most animals do that through the nose, ears and pawpads. I was trying to think of another source, another area where a large chunk of skin might look nice.
Legs were not a focus, wings are missing too, tails might still get more details too. I was only focusing on the body and what I can add, what works, what feels right... especially the last point.
If it wouldn't be so late now, I'd experiment some further with feather accessories. Maybe add some bones. I should also note down what I want to keep for an "enhanced" form. I decided for myself that I should make a simple, casual form and one that is extra epic, suited for fighting. An additional mystical feeling would be nice too.
Lots of ideas, but no idea how to put what where. I still have a long road ahead of me.
I should really get into the habit of drawing instead of browsing social media when I have some time where I have nothing to do. Also including when I'm waiting for someone.
Or actually do more chores.
I'm wasting so much time I hate it. I've been thinking that a hundred times now... Why is it so hard for me to just do?

A pair of silver foxes from Zoo Osnabrück. ♥
Super cute and lively fellas. I love their bent on the ear.
More photos from me on flickr.
Very first digital artwork I finished on my tablet I got last saturday. Haven't done anything art-related in YEARS. (Except for the odd little scribble here and there.. but never something with shading or anything)
But I decided to go with my favorite electric rodent for the beginning. The Gen 1 Raichu figurine on my PC staring at me just called for it.
There is a LOT of space upwards for improvement. But this already looks better than what I came up with on saturday. So I'm optimistic.
My first finished pic since ages o/
A portrait of my sona's gf, based on a bat-eared fox.
It has its problems, but at least I finished something for once <3
While we are at it... here's a WIP of a D&D character idea of mine, an Owlfolk Druid.
This was the first time I painted in CSP and I like the default brush a lot. Painting the head was a lot of fun. I haven't painted in ages in general and I just enjoy it so much. But to start painting, I must be able to work well with the underlying sketch =w=
I was struggling the most to get the eyes look lively and not soulless. Adding more contrast to the highlight helped quite a bit, but I don't feel like it's quite there yet.
Not sure when I will continue this, as this character has been exchanged in favor for another one that will be easier for me to play.
I just... can't get foxes to look like foxes ;_;
These were done with references. Still struggling with muzzle length... but at least I'm more confident in its height now?
But I feel like I'm struggling with everything.
One of my toonkind characters, Vava Von Vixen. Famous actress, mom, and occasional chaos element who is far too ready for violence.

Altum Silentium - Silence Plush
The plushie here is the reason why I was so quiet in the last weeks ^^; He kept me quite busy and was very elaborate to finish it.
While looking for suitable characters to sew as plushies, I actually remembered the character of a friend of mine: Silence, a character of Pharaonenfuchs. Silence is one of my favorite foxies of hers and it really appealed to me to sew him! After I got the okay from her, I ordered the needed fabric and started right away :D
Through him I have learned a few things again. For one thing, how to do jagged markings and that it's better to do the body first.... Because I had only finished the head before I made the body. Afterwards I realized that the head was too big XD So I had to sew it twice. But in the end it was good, because I didn't really like some things in the first head. Therefore, I was able to mend these flaws and therefore I like the 2nd version of the head really well! And yes, I'd rather re-sew a head than the body, the latter is far more complex to sew, haha.
Unfortunately, I was forced to use a lightweight minky version for the purple fur because the 380g version was sold out. I think it could have made some things easier to sew, but at least now I know how to sew a 300 g version.
The eyes and mouth were sewn on with felt and a tight zig-zag stitch. The claws are also made of felt and were sewn on top. The nose was also sewn on it this time, since my plastic noses were too small for the size of the plush :( It looked pretty dumpy.
The plush has a height of about 29 cm (~11,5" ) and a length of about 33 cm (~ 13" ).
Even though my hand hurt on some evenings and I pricked my finger more than once while doing the handwork (XD), I had a lot of fun working on this plushie :D It was fun to see how the character took more shape little by little and you could recognize it completely at some point (at least I hope so?! XD)
Let's see who I'll do next. But I think I'll take a little break from sewing plushies for now, haha.

I'm so incredibly pleased with how it turned out! I spent forever detailing the guitar the boots, and I think the result is really worth the extra effort. :D
Being online nowadays is so tiring.
It's so exhausting. Many people will say "it's just being nice/respectful uwu", but... 100 other people will also ask for small favors and it's exhausting.
Trying to remember 100 people on the internet, their preference in pronouns, their preference in pinging, their triggers, anything?
You can't seriously expect that...
And please don't tell me I should make a list...
I understand wanting these things from friends, but I'm just a passerby in most cases.
The more I appreciate having the info easily available somewhere...
Planning on making some masks for $10 each. this is a potential design.
