48. Childhood by surfersquid 48. Childhood by surfersquid
For the 100 Picture Challenge: [link]

Well, I hadn't done something traditional in a while so I decided to have fun with that. Used a sheet of manila drawing paper because people like to randomly give me art supplies so I somehow ended up with three or four packs of this stuff...might as well try to free up some space in my storage. Plus I like the storybook/flashback-type feel it gives, which is exactly what I wanted for this picture.

Characters from a roleplay a friend and I are doing, as adorable children (yes, the bird too, he's going to be about six feet at the shoulder when he's grown), because we've decided that they did in fact meet as children and then somehow forgot, and then met again years later. Herp derp irony. (They will rediscover this lost episode in their pasts eventually.)

Gin's like "This is my Elri, his name is Ko, isn't he awesome?!" and Liu's like "I don't understand your language but this fluffy thing fascinates me" and Ko's like "I like this girl. We should come back when we're grown and kidnap her."1

And so they did.

1Ko can't actually talk. But that's obviously what he's thinking.

Oh, these are the characters from that picture with the whole family, right?

I love their expressions, and what you wrote in the artist's comments!

That bird is the best thing ever and I think the manila paper gives it exactly the feel you wanted it to.

My birds look too much like dinosaurs but I'm not disposed to care. :P Also these are supposed to have something of a saurian look to them.

I gotta find more ways to use up this paper--it's just sitting in the storage bin, taking up precious space. *muses*

I think all birds should look more like dinosaurs.

Hmm. Flashbacks? Retro things? Steampunk?

Agree.

Hmmm...yes, yes. All those and more. I'll see what I can do. I have secret dreams of actually trying to use up all of my art supplies that are languishing helplessly in storage bins. That's what I've decided I'll try to accomplish with my independent stuff.
