I did a drawling

So I’ve been wanting to pick up a pencil again. Between Yue drawing Rei and then RoaringLight’s awesome poem/screen over on Nexus I figured I’d put more of an effort in. My technique for the last few years has been pyrography, which is wood burning. It was, oddly, an easier medium for me than any other. I guess I felt freer? I dunno. But to me wood is more forgiving than a pencil and paper is, so for a long time I just haven’t touched either. Plus having lost all trace of my previous works was more than a little disheartening. Not that they were good, but it sucks to lose them.

But then my hands shake, so I haven’t even been doing my burning, either, because it’s generally ill-advised to hold a soldering iron while your hand’s going nutso.

I said “fuck it”, though, and I took it easy and slow. This isn’t anything amazing, right? I’s just how I always drew him when I was an angsty teen.

Anyway here he is, mullethawk and all! Sorry for the quality. I don’t have a scanner :V

    Wow I love the detail you put into him furb! especially the hair ๐Ÿ˜€
    You captured his sexy sharp features perfectly, I also really like how you added detail to the nose to give it some extra dimension and facial detailing to give his expression more umpf!. The eye are is really nice too, I like the shimmering look you gave to them, it's almost like he's actually staring at me :v HI REI! xD

    Great drawing overall Furb! โ™ฅ

    You're way too sweet, but I'm glad you like it! You get lots of credit though because that poem/pic combo really did spur me on. Now I want to see if I can do more…my husband gave me a really pretty sketchbook a while ago and it's just sat empty this whole time ๐Ÿ˜›

    At the very least, Sabrael deserves a try :3

    I'd love to see what you can do with Sabrael, too – especially if you decide to draw him in his Kirin form.

    Awesome drawing of Rei, Furb. So happy to see that you're feeling stoked to draw again – it's always great to see someone get their mojo back!

    Thanks! I dunno about my mojo, but it's nice to see the guy I couldn't go two minutes without scribbling back ๐Ÿ˜›

    I wish I had my old drawings just to see if there's any noticeable deviation. Sabrael's gonna be an interesting one. It's been a long time since I've had to yank an original character out of my head to put down onto paper.
