HP AU Sketch Project

Right around New Year’s I began working on a project to draw several of Nezumi’s and my characters in the Hogwarts houses they would have been sorted into if they were in a Harry Potter AU story.  It took me until this month to finish because I’m a slow artist and because I drew lots of sketches that ended up getting tossed out for various reasons.  Eventually, however, I had to stop being so hypercritical of my artwork and go with what I had, otherwise the project would never get finished.  Most of the sketches I like quite a bit and am happy with, but with any project, there are some I don’t like quite as much.  Overall I’m really pleased with this project and am happy that I managed to stick with it until completion.

2017 Creators Meme

I was tagged by Nezumi for this meme, so here we go ^__^

Rules: it’s time to love yourselves! choose your 5 favorite works you’ve created last year (fics, art, edits, etc) and link them below to reflect on the amazing things you’ve brought into the world in 2017. Tag as many writers/artists/etc as you want so we can spread the love and link each other to awesome work.

Last year was a mixed bag for me in terms of creativity, something I’m working to remedy in 2018.  However, there were a few bright spots.  I drew a lot more than I have in the past few years.  Not colored, finished pieces, but lots of sketching and lineart, which I found to be quite enjoyable.  There was also writing, both the regular rps and another Christmas collection that was gifted to Nezu.  So even if I didn’t photograph my dolls as much as I wanted or managed much else in the way of creative production, the year wasn’t a total wash.

Side One.

The teahouse is reminiscent of Meiji-era Japan, replete with shoji doors, decorative screens, tatami mats, and wood paneled walls.  In the private dining room reserved for the restaurant’s elite, a low, rectangular table is bordered by zabuton on each side.  The merry trickling of water comes from the small bamboo fountain in one corner, and the air is rich with the scents of what remains on the two daily trayed sets – miso broiled fish, tofu and seaweed salad, seven grain rice, and various accompanying vegetables.  Beside the trays a pot of gyokuro sits on a warmer, the expensive tea brought by the hostess herself.
