He is a wandering manWith dark circles beneath his eyes;Shadows etched into his skinAs he travels through the days.
He was a loving manWho lived for the smell of dawn;But eventually, the sky fellOn top of him.
He has no feeling left,Merely passing throughEverything.

He is a wandering man
With dark circles beneath his eyes;
Shadows etched into his skin
As he travels through the days.

He was a loving man
Who lived for the smell of dawn;
But eventually, the sky fell
On top of him.

He has no feeling left,
Merely passing through
Everything.

Also here is the culmination of all those Steven Universe character studies I was doing! All the refs I used are there, too.Definitely feeling more confident about tackling some real fan art work in the future so…mayhaps be excited? Or not haha, NO EXPECTATIONS.

Rad assignment we had to do for Environment Asset Building!This is a concept I’ve had in mind for a story (one of many) that I’ve been fleshing out. About the process:We built a flight of stairs in perspective using illustrator, then transferred ‘em into PS as a smart object and had to create something a little less stiff while still applying the proper perspective!I really love environment design but I find it hard to sit down and do, so I am very happy to finally be doing some real design work in this class! Also I am not really one for line work as I am more of a painter, but it is something I really want to get better at…so I am really happy with this! :)

The Third Eye’s Journey and His Growing Hair
Taking a break from homework and decided to do a piece based on a P!ATD song. I’ve had this idea floating around in my head for a while haha!"I won’t cut my beard and I won’t change my hair,It grows like fancy flowersBut it grows nowhere, my hair, my hair-“

Old doodle from what I am gunna guess to be about 3-4 years ago.  Individual lines, intricate and unplanned. I still do this sort of thing to relax, find it to be incredibly useful to clear my mind. #art #ink #pen #doodles #drawing #backintheday #stateofmind #stateofbeing
