The Harbor Brigade by WillowEscapee
The Harbor Brigade
I haven't sat myself down to do a painting in a few months. I sacrificed going to Anime Boston because I felt obligated to finish this. It's been a few weeks in the making, and I'm surprised I stuck with it.
I'm really pleased with the atmosphere I managed to create with this piece. I'm pleased with the textures and thought that went into the characters. Overall, I'm pleased.
I'll probably hide in a hole for another month until finals pass and I'm back at home being cushy and drawing.
Also I'll be in London drawing for a while too. I'm working on an animation minor. That's happening.
Sorry I haven't been in touch with anyone. Something about dA's interface is kind of offputting nowadays. Probably because I'm an old fart who only ever looks back nostalgically at the good ol' days when the logo didn't look like an awkwardly shaped 'z'

Tessek and Void belong to me
Dandelion Wisps by WillowEscapee
Dandelion Wisps
hey guys its me back at it again with a riveting piece that I will proceed to leave here and not return to for another two months.

haha anyways. This is a piece I've been working on and off with during the snow days we've been having up in college land. There have been a lot and it really sucks. Like I'm pretty sure I came here to learn last time I checked.

I had a long, drawn-out commentary to put behind this, but every time I submit something, I'm always too exhausted from drawing to say anything about it.

It was something about me, when I was younger, how I was always attracted to power and not beauty, how I always wanted to be the strongest, most agile characters, never the beautiful, fawned-over ones. Biggest inspirations in my childhood were probably like Spyro and Sonic the Hedgehog and anyone from Pokemon.

I had a dream about all the dandelion puffs in my yard being kicked up into the air and amalgamating into a giant dragon beast. It would run around and play with all the children, but if you got too close to it, it would dissolve back into a cloud of dandelion seeds.

I think that's all I wanted to say

Legend of the Deep by WillowEscapee
Legend of the Deep
Legend was a redraw of an image from six years ago, similar to The Beast and the Butterfly. They were both a pair of other worldly guardians that I created for a story line when I was about 11 years old.
There were five guardians total (one for Beasts/Earth, Fish/Water, Birds/Sky, Reptiles/Energy, Insects/Life), and I think 3 of them were drawn and released on dA, I don't remember. I'll have to dig through my embarrassingly old files to find them.
I just remember Legend was the most beautiful of them all. Though I think I assigned them genders when I first created them, I would prefer them to be genderless deities.

Pumpkin Spice Dragon by WillowEscapee
Pumpkin Spice Dragon
I finished this back in October and just never submitted it because I always just open dA then close it
I don't know ughhh I gotta get back in my groove. I really want to be connected with the art community again.

Anyways!! Dragon! Pumpkin spice!! what more could you want this season eh?

Hello friends.

I thought it would appropriate to update on what's going on with me, if there is anyone out there at all who is still on or keeps up with what I'm writing. A lot has changed between the summer I wrote my last journal and now.

Firstly, the biggest thing has been my move to Boston. I've never moved before, and the relocation was rather jarring. I'm getting used to it now; it'd been incredibly rough at first, with an indescribably painful longing to just go home to where things were simple and familiar. But I know now that so much regret would have followed me at home. I've done so many incredible things in Boston in just the short month and a half I've been here that I would have never been able to do had I stayed behind.
So, in short, if you have the chance to get out there in the world, out of your comfort zone, do it! The world is incredible, and limiting your viewpoint to only one place is robbing you of incredible opportunities. 
I know I've only scratched the surface of exploration, but I'm hoping this testament won't change.

Secondly, now that I'm an adult in adult land, I've been able to arrange reconnections with some of my friends back in my pre-teen days of oekaki art. I remember it being this grand (yet far-fetched) dream that we of the oekaki board could all get together someday and have a big, happy slumber party. I had the very surprising and very exciting opportunity, purely by chance, to meet my good friend Miss-Toula in person yesterday after seven years of on-and-off online communication. It was an incredibly surreal experience to put a person behind just a username I'd seen pop up for so long. 

I don't know where many of us have run off to. Tumblr is probably the logical answer, but who even knows how to find people on there. 

Now, I'm not really saying if we've known each other for a long time, you should come and find me, or vice-versa. More or less, I'm saying, if we've had a long period of silence, and you're still out there, I would love to catch up with you and see how you've been. Perhaps if everything lines up and it's not too inconvenient, maybe then we can arrange a meeting!

I honestly have no idea who's still out there, where you are, what you're doing or anything. I don't know who still watches me. But I still check my messages every day (even if I don't answer aahahaha), and I don't bite, so feel free to talk!

I'll see you around. My art has been sparse because of all the work associated with my major, but I'm still doing what I can on the side. Hope you are all having pleasant journeys through life! Hope to hear from some of you.
