may your memory never fade, fili // pencil

Yes, finally that Fili tribute I promised you months ago.

   It's actually been done for a while, but I've been lazy, and also the sun hasn't been out, giving me bad light for the photo.

   Okay, yes, I am one of those fans who's not satisfied with Fili's part in the Hobbit trilogy. I found his lack of screen-time... disturbing.

   I'm also rather upset that Bilbo didn't say this line at the end. But, you know. Nothing we can do about it now.

   Or is there? Let's not let his memory fade away, let's give him some well-deserved love. I love how after the movie came out, I say lots of fanart about Fili, He's one of my favorite characters in the Hobbit (in order: Thorin, Bilbo, Fili {Kili's fallen a good ways down by now}) and I really miss him. 

   I'm glad there are other fans out there who think so too. Thanks, guys! :)

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Here's a few photos I took of the Valentine's Day cupcakes we made at a girl's group not long ago.

Have a lovely day!

Captain Rex // pencil and colored pencil // notebook sketch

Hey guys!

   It's me again :) I've finally got another fandom drawing to share with you, and not one of the Hobbit, which most of my fanart is of so far.

   Star Wars! Who doesn't like it, right? I've been in this fandom for a while now, and was really attached to the TV show, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

   My favorite characters have always been the clones, and one of my most loved clones is Captain Rex of the 501st.

   Aw, the memories. It hasn't been that long since they ended the Clone Wars, but it feels like it's been gone for so long now.

   He was my clone. My type of soldier. A great character, and a good man. Especially after seeing the Umbara episodes, that heartbreaking arc really showed us the man of Captain Rex. His men respect him, his General and Commander trust him. And they have a good reason to.

   I got these new pencils, they're tinted graphite. Normal colored pencils are made of mostly wax, but the tinted graphite is just a normal graphite pencil (2B, 6B, 2H, you know) tinted with some kind of color pigment (I assume). Kind of an odd idea, but easier to work with, since it erases much better and has a more natural tone and color. I used mostly blue for this one (with some purple for shading), and did the rest with a normal pencil.

    I have a new pocket sized (well, maybe not that small, but it's not exactly normal sized) sketchbook that I'm doing some drawings in, and I've got a few clones done. Rex was the first I finished, and is therefor first to be posted.

   There's more to come, a few more clones, and one last Hobbit fanart, so keep your eyes out for that!

Sincerely, Darrion
