April Showers by janneward
April Showers
an attempt at painting early spring rain. I'm not sure the textures are as strong as they could be. I will keep working on this.

I haven't had enough time for art recently. I am two weeks away from finishing this class and then I'll be on to my last one. I have two works in progress, one which I've uploaded, and one which won't photograph nicely- too much glare so far. Hopefully I'll get that uploaded soon. I also want to do more character portraits but I have no idea when I would be able to make time for that.
Otherwise, fighting with family, depression, and time, as always. Not always in that order.
Now that the weather is getting better I can add planting my flower boxes to the list of stuff I don't have time for. : )

In Wycomes Wake by janneward
In Wycomes Wake
Because my poor Dalish Inquisitor seriously needed some cuddles after her clan died from my wrong choice of advisors and a lack of a save game to fall back on….. and because no one talking about it in game really bugged me. Please be nice, I’m a painter by training, not a writer. : )
So, one grieving elf, and well meaning friends who don’t always know what to say or how best to help when the truth finally comes out

the usual.
Dragon Age inquisition belongs to Bioware.
Naia and this little band-aid fic thingy are mine.

Hi all,
I have not been active as much this winter despite initial plans to the opposite. Unfortunately, my amount of classwork has escalated and I am now bogged down in a group project that will take all my remaining time for the next session. (Today was the first day and omg am I sooo confused as to what we are supposed to be doing!? Five of us have to problem solve something and present at the end to an actual company?! eeeeeek!)

So, I have not been painting recently and I hate that. I have some good ideas for character portraits, landscapes, all kinds of things, and I don't like to sit on them too long or I forget and lose inspiration. But it will probably be April or May before I will have time.

The good news is that this is my second to last class! I have signed my intent to graduate and been accepted and set up to have my diploma mailed out in May/June. Officially only 16 more weeks! And I'm done! So, thats pretty exciting and I feel less guilty for taking the time away from my art knowing that the current schedule and demanded effort will be finite. After that, I can get back to doing what I love.

Other than that, Chicago in March is shaping up cold, damp, and gray. I don't mind the cold, but I hope spring doesn't take too much longer.

I am a 36 yr old pc gaming, cat inheriting, book nerd! I used to practice western martial arts. I am a fair hand at painting and drawing.

When I was in high school, my friends made me watch the entire Star Wars trilogy in one sitting. It introduced me to the fantastic realm of possibilities that is fan art in Fantasy and Sci- Fi.. I was hooked. From there I became interested in comic books.
I studied Illustration at Columbia College in Chicago until I dropped out. I wasn't out going enough to be a professional artist. I continue doing art now because its something I love and want to improve at but on my own terms this time around.
Anyone interested in commissions or purchasing an original please send me a note-
I'm also on tumblr- adragonatemyart.tumblr.com/

Please do not steal my work- IT IS COPYRIGHTED. Ask permission.

Current Residence: Chicago
Favorite genre of music: I'll listen to almost anything.
Operating System: Windows
Shell of choice: I'm out of mine - won't go back
Wallpaper of choice: I would rather paint on the walls..but no one ever lets me.
