A drawing of Mara. I recorded a speedpaint of this and posted it to my original Youtube channel, which has sadly been lost after being banned in 2010. Still bummed about some of the stuff I had that I'll never get back. Oh well. 

At least I still have this gem of a comment that I dug up in my old email, back when Youtube emailed you notifs about new activity on your videos. Early 2000s Youtube was the best Youtube. Everything about this is such a time capsule and I love it. That old 3D Youtube logo and slogan. Calling it "SAI PAINTER". SD = super deformed.

Was this comment rude and uncalled for? Yes. Were they right? Also yes. Back then, we could still upvote/downvote comments. If your opinion was shit, other people would let you know. It warmed my heart to see this person's comment at -6 points. Now you can't even see dislikes on Youtube videos unless you have a browser extension. I am still so mad about that. #firstworldproblems

Mara and Mr Cass, circa 2008

If you're wondering what's going on in this picture, that's a great question! I don't know either. The more I look at this the less it makes sense. Why is Mara holding her head? Why are there dried blood stains on her shirt? Why does Mr Cass have a ring with Hungarian writing on it? I don't even know Hungarian!

I had recently made the switch from Photoshop to SAI for all my digital art needs, so the novelty was still fresh. I still think SAI is superior to Photoshop when it comes to digital art, despite its limited features. Everything, from the interface to the painting tools just feels so much smoother. 

Oh hey, I still have the sketch!

Maybe if I'm lucky the speedpaint video is still somewhere out there. Vintage!

Emo Link

God this one is embarrassing. I think this was my very first time participating in an art gift exchange on Deviantart. My recipient requested Link and Midna from Twilight Princess. His expression is an accurate depiction of how my recipient must have felt when they saw this. Plz forgive me. At least it was fun to color!

Also, I finally got around to playing this game in 2021. Better late than never, right?
