"And it might not be
the prettiest thing that you've ever seen
But it's a new day
Oh, baby it's a new day"
-- Robbie Seay Band, "New Day"

(Yes, I am being a sap and using lyrics as a title.)

Just a picture I took back in July.

Chanel and a Book by OpalescentSky
Chanel and a Book
Aww, look at these two. Aren't they cute? I miss Enel. Even if he has his faults, he's so adorable and I look forward to his awakening.

This pic is for :iconaceofstars16: :) We made a deal that I would draw her some TSE if she finished her goal for her research paper, and she did, so here it is! Good work! ^^ Sorry it isn't very couple-y, but it isn't exactly like we're lacking that in comic.

Yes, Enel is still wearing that shirt, which he will probably never wear again due to excessive bloodstaines. But as for Chara's earring, I have a headcannon that after this chapter is over, she'll keep the one she still has, and wear it sometimes. After all, why not? I totally would.

They are on the ship, by the way. I did not put in enough work for it to be obvious. I love sailing, but during calm days it is necessary to have lots of reading materials. Luckily, Marcus has taken care of that for Team Telescope.

I like the way this turned out. I wish I could have spent more time on it, but unfortunately, I have school.

Chara and Enel are from The Silver Eye, an amazing webcomic by lostie815.I highly recommend it!

Apen Shephard by OpalescentSky
Apen Shephard

It honestly felt like gimp 2.8/my laptop/the universe was doing everything in its power to stop me from completing this picture. But weeks later, it is done, so take that, universe!

This is Apen Shephard, possibly my favourite character  from The Silver Eye webcomic by :iconlostie815:. It is quite brilliant, and I swear that if you read it you will not regret it. Trust me :)

This is supposed to take place during the two year time skip, when Apen ran away to escape from the pesky Enel. I was going to draw him with a grumpy expression, but then I considered all the irritating things that have been happening to him lately, and decided that maybe he liked sailing, or maybe he was thinking of Melly or something.


The colours are much brighter than I meant them to be, especially with how red the sail/boat is and how purple his shirt is, but I think they turned out well, oddly enough. The ship is not anatomically correct, so to speak, and I am very much aware of that, but I couldn’t (*cough was too lazy to cough*) find many good reference pics of American Rovers.

I love gimp 2.8, I really do. It is free, and I just keep on learning how to do more and more cool things with it. I can't really see myself having gotten into digital art if I hadn't been introduced to it. But lately I have not been feeling the love. Why?
Because it crashes like...like a meteorite.  There was a picture way back in January where I saved it after having done an enormous amount of work on the figures hands, but when I came to it later, all the slides with the hands were gone, leaving only a handful of sketchy slides. I was heartbroken, but I was able to redo my work, and I'd hoped that was the last of the Mysteriously Deleted Layers.
I was wrong, of course.
This July, I started working on a piece of fan art, and it started happening again. Most often, it would crash when I tried to "Save As", but it would also delete layers from the original peice I had just saved. Ugh! Thankfully, I scraped by, and often all it would delete were layers I had been planning on deleting anyways.  But when I started colouring the line art...well, all went well until I was finally done with it, and, because it hadn't crashed in a while, dared to click "Save As". It crashed, and by some bizarre twist of fate, all the colouring and shading I had done was merged onto one layer. It was just plain weird, and I was furious,  because I generally keep coloured layers seperate for a reason. But I tried to look on the bright side, and managed to fiddle around with things and continue with the picture regardless.
When I finished the picture, I wanted to crop some white edges out of it...much to my dismay, it crashed each and every time I tried to. It didn't delete layers, though. I will probably crop it with another program now.
Being frustrated with the crashing, as well as moving to another city, gave me some time away from the picture, and when I came back to it I saw that his left eye was too small. I worked to redo it, as well as his eyebrows. And guess what? When I went to export it...it crashed. I lost all the work on his eyes, but it was partially my fault this time, as I hadn't saved it before exporting it. I redid my work.
Now I sit here, looking at my shiny new  complete and satisfactory fan art. Will it crash again? I do not know, but it was worth it. Such is my love for The Silver Eye, the webcomic it is fan art of, which I shall post as soon as I can transfer it from my dusty old internetless laptop to a computer.

Speaking of which, it is entirely possible that none of this is gimp's fault, and that my laptop is entirely to blame. I named it Velvare, after a character from The Silver Eye, which I think is quite an apt name, because that character falls apart quite literally several times in the comic, which you should probably read because it is amazing.

Hello! :)
I think this might be the first time someone from BtT has commented here
It's cool that you're watching MekakuCity :D How are you liking it?

It was slow paced at first, but after Heat Haze Days* began to lift.

I like the aesthetics and character designs, Takane Enomoto is so cute!

Also, I like that is cleaner than other shows of the season, although Ene showing the leg folder of the hikki-neet was unnecessary.

You need to upload more artwork girl. (Says the chick with three things in her gallery). I guess I'm just impatient to see Kano.
