I’ve decided to name him Nacht. He’s a Dream Weaver who’s obsessed with nightmares. -

Some character sketches from my comic I tossed some color on to prove I'm not dead after stressing all last week from school lmao... Anyway, everyone should know Gino and Anabellsa by now, so introducing Giovanni Fucile, Gino's older brother and a veteran of World War I, and Paolo "Paulie" DeFalco, Gino's best friend and left-hand-man from Brooklyn. // Paulie belongs to @garoogiedraws

Even more exploration with this alien character. I think I've finally found a good shape for his design. I was not expecting to draw him a ton lately, but he's tons of fun to play around with! #characterdesign #characterdevelopment #cartoon #alien #sketchbook #doodles #drawings #spacealien #eyeball #characterconcept
Nine used to be an astronaut. Suffice to say the job was not glamorous -- no exploring the depths of unknown space. Instead, she worked as an ice hauler and freighter worker. Working in space is dangerous, but the pay is compensatory -- you've just got to find folks desperate enough to do it. 
Some development for a story I'm working on 🤘 I like the grayscale but purple hues are also appealing. Which one would you guys prefer for a short comic? 🤔

Funny story: I had twenty extra minutes to wait for the bus, so I went into a Wallgreen's to get out of the cold. I didn't have any money, and I started picturing a particular character (who grows up to be a thief) walking around the marketplace without any money as a child! #author #authorsofinstagram #indieauthors #indieauthorsofinstagram #writer #writersofinstagram #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #fantasy #fantasybooks #fantasyauthors #characterdevelopment #inspiration #littlemoments #funnystory #wallgreens #largerthanlife #backstory #characterbackground #characterbackstory

This is the last of the character intros for now. (This is just for the first part of the story). I kept debating if Moon should have a dad or not. After doing a couple of character drafts of her dad, decided not to do that. It was fitting into the narrative well at all. So, I decided just to give Moon a mom. Let me introduce you to Gypsy. She's a beautiful, yet complex middle age of a soul. Gypsy had Moon when she was young & unexperienced in life & the world, but was able to still care for, love (still does) & teach Moon the ways of life & the world in her own beautiful & unconventional way. She had a partner for a short time, but they ended up breaking up for reasons that she doesn't like to talk about. Single mother. Gypsy is a photographer & a writer. Even though she's kind, loving, caring, funny & full of life, she has some regrets in life that she can't let go of. Gypsy is a work in progress. And lastly, there’s Cali, Ben girlfriend. She’s a little bit of a mystery, but all I can say is she’s kind, caring, a little insecure & senses maybe there’s still some feelings between Ben & Moon.  #gypsyneonqueen #thepowerofthegoddessproject #dragqueens #lgbtq #originalcharacters #originalwriting #characterdevelopment #myedits

Character concept I'm developing for class. His ref sheet should be out in a couple weeks. •
Msizi is based off the concept of a with doctor combined with the feathered look of the bearded vulture. His name is means "helper" in Zulu.

Happy Birthday Libby!!! 🎉🎂🎈
Libby is a lovely lamb who likes to listen carefully to Primrose children. She gives everyone a turn to speak, making sure each person finds a voice. She is calm and thoughtful, making sure to hear other opinions before making a decision.

EarRing. “When a mind slips into creative mode, filters fall away. It makes a leap to venture Beyond. From there it wanders, releasing thought droplets that are drawn together by an imaginative, fluid current. As the mind surrenders itself to InnerSight, it begins to project a passage, flowing from private abstraction to public sensation.” - @virtuonaut 06 August 2014 “When all is sketchy, sketch the future” - A Wandering Mind “Interference” medium.com/@virtuonaut

q o t d: What were some of your favorite books as a child?
.
.
a o t d: Definitely the Chronicles of Narnia! I read them so many times as a kid. They were what began my love for fantasy.
.

h a p p y  s a t u r d a y
I hope you all are doing well this morning. What are you up to this weekend? We will probably just be relaxing, which means also possibly visiting coffee shops. Whether or not writing happens remains to be seen, but since it's the weekend, I'll take a pass.

#amereadvent [joy]
What about my WIP brings me the most joy? The fact that it is exciting. Even when it’s difficult, I am excited by the story concept, the world, the magic—everything. I’m reminded that this story is mine. I don’t have to write for anyone else, and that is an exhilarating thought.
.

#fantasywipdecember [mid month update]
Things have gone wonderfully this month so far. I broke through the barrier of abstraction and was able to get my story into concrete working pieces. Since then, I have been filling in details about the world and characters. And I even met an interesting new character a few days ago. Fun times indeed. How have your projects been going so far this month?
.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Estudo baseado numa cena do Senhor dos Anéis - O Retorno do Rei. Quando der, pretendo fazer mais alguns ainda desse filme, pois o concept dessa triolgia é absurdo de foda.

Part II
Values are virtues that are embedded within us, an innate accomplishment that brings fulfilment at all times. And only through kindness, positive thinking and positive behavior can this be acquired. 
Let's imbibe the act of making our children see life from the positive frame rather than the negativity that surrounds them, that's when the world will start to start experience the benefit of kindness and hospitality. Know that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.

Brandy:
Crystal was ahead of me. We were both marching along in winter coats with snow pants, with Crystal's yellow dress and my blue dress all crunched up inside. We were like little astronauts, with the hoods up over hats, and Crystal had wrapped scarves around our necks and the edges of our faces. 
I suddenly felt we were on our own. Not just in the schoolyard, or in the snowstorm, but in the universe. I knew the school was ahead, and I think there were other children around us, but I couldn't see them in the snow, and I couldn't hear properly because there was so much material wrapped around my little head.
I felt irritated by everything. I stopped where I was, and watched Crystal as she continued to trudge forward to be obliterated by snow. She disappeared.
I went from being irritated to furious. Why was I here alone? Why couldn't I be somebody else for five minutes? My family should have stayed where all my friends were. Moving around all the time and having parties with music was stupid.
If only I knew what my life would become.
I screamed, but it wasn't a fear-scream, it was anger. I knew by the frown on my brow and the cold on my bared teeth. Out the anger went into the white nothing.
"What are you doing?" asked Crystal as she turned and rematerialized in front of me. "C'mon, don't make us late."
"I think I got cross at the snow," I explained.
"So the snow is all you have to be mad at, eh?" she said flatly. I think she was on to me, more than I was on to myself.
I felt like Crystal and I were like the first pioneers in this empty, snow-filled country. Somebody changed my ideas about that in a big way later, but that was how I felt then.

Four Truths and a Lie 🤭⁣

I took a random, online quiz that said it was going to reveal 5 truths about me. 😳 But you know what happened?! They only told me 4 truths and one was a lie! 😠 Can you believe it?! 🤷🏻‍♀️ ⁣

So which one do you think is a lie about me? 🙈

I just started watching this #season of #powerrangers last night so I can’t give it my own personal #rating just yet but so far I am really liking the #fantasy elements implemented into this particular installment of the #power #rangers #franchise . 
UPDATE: Finally I finished watching this season! 4.5 stars out of 5! My only complaints are the lack of #characterdevelopment (probably because it’s only 32 episodes) and some of the poor/boring #acting . Other than these two complaints it was an #epic ride!

POSITIVE PARENTING

A recent article in InPsych magazine by Professor Lea Waters found that children benefit psychologically if parents focus on their strengths rather than criticise & sweat the small stuff.  This research revealled that the children were "less stressed, better at handling friendship issues, better at meeting homework deadlines and get better grades – important results in light of concerns about teen depression, bullying and underachievement." . "Focusing on strengths doesn’t mean ignoring problems or lavishing kids with excessive praise. It is an honest appraisal of something the child does well (high performance), happily (high energy), and often (high use). So far, researchers have identified more than 100 strengths that can be measured and improved. There are strengths of talent such as sporting, music, artistic, communication and IT abilities and there are strengths of character such as grit, curiosity, courage, humour and kindness." .

Authentically observing our own & other's strengths is a healthy self esteem habit.  We need to support the development of a healthy sense of self in our children. Be positive and attuned appropriately and your kids will be happier, and so will you.
