The slow destruction of my car by non automobiles

I am determined to make my 4 door ’97 Honda Accord last forever.The car isn’t the prettiest thing thanks to my neglect…but it still gets me from point A to point B and back all while blowing nice cool air in my face.

 My driving record isn’t the best. I’ve had my share of accidents in the past. But, thankfully, it seems that either my driving skills have leveled up or other cars have just learned to avoid me at all costs because it’s been years since I’ve had to exchange insurance information with someone.

 Lately it isn’t other vehicles that I’ve been worried about. No no no. It’s family and friends.

 One of the back windows is forever shut  and the window handle…thing…has been permanently removed.This is thanks to my friend Oskar who doesn’t understand how child safety windows work.When the window wouldn’t go further than half way down he used his hulk strength to force it…thus making it constantly slide down on it’s own accord. The window would hold up for a day or so with the aid of tape…sometimes.

 And when my car dude was fixing it so it wouldn’t roll down anymore ( via shoestring, might I add…but hey it works!) he accidently tore off a chunk of the tinted window tape.

 And, a couple days back my husband, whom I love dearly, broke the car handle.
The handle that opens the door from the inside.
The one that’s on the drivers side.

 So, now I must roll down my hard to open window  all the way down to let myself out of my vehicle.
Or I could crawl over to the passenger side each time.

 Either way…I’m sure it looks really classy.

 And so this isn’t just a random rant, heres some TMNT fanart from the Stealthy Stories fanfic awards. Not sure if they want me to post it here, but I used some pose references for some of them and I’d like to give credit.
Unfortunatly, I don't have the links to the two that I have with me that came from someone elses stock pose set, so I'll have to post them in my next entry. For now though, heres some of the others.

Random side note: I wish I would've hidden my sig better. It looked really tackey on the certificates. Sorry about that, winners.

Not a fan of the colored version of this, so I'm only going to post the linework.

I have a love/hate relationship with this piece.

The next three will just be the colored version because I don't have the linework on me at the moment:

Alrighty, that's all for now. I'll post the rest in another entry another day.

Late on Life

I'm so very behind on everything. Reading and commenting on fanfics, responding to emails and comments, art trades and gifts, and so on and so on. I think I just got a bit burned out after the Stealthy Stories TMNT fanfics awards and needed to run away from the internet for a bit.

I'm back doodling again and slowly getting back to where I was so I can do those trades and gifts finally. Just have patience with me, my tmnt homies.

Random side note: I went to a thrift store a few days back and bought a skateboard. I forgot how much fun I used to have with my skateboard! I love it so much :)
And no...I do not care that I am almost 30 and still riding a skateboard.
Also, Criminal Minds has become my new guilty pleasure. Can't wait for season 7!

Anyways...here's some doodles. One full of random non fanart stuff and the other filled with TMNT practice fun. The coffee mug design was taken from here--> http://images1.cpcache.com/product/161747661v11_480x480_Front.jpg

TMNT Jobs: Leo

And finally we have Leo the lawyer!
Sorry it has taken so long to get this out. :(
I've been extremely stressed of late with house stuff. It's partly my fault. I have this tendency to think that just because my job requires me to be in front of my email all day that everyone else is too and so I get frustrated that these house people are not responding to me as soon as I'd like! D:<
And I'm pressed for time, people! I've got less than a week and a half to get all this crap together that they have pushed on me TODAY in order to close!
I just wish these people would freakin' RESPOND TO ME WHEN I EMAIL THEM!!
...I just don't want to lose my dream house. u_u
If Leo was my lawyer he'd kick their a$$.

Anyways...I did two doodles for Leo. Most of it was doodled before this fic was written. Except for the 'shoe' bit. That was after :)

Here's a link to the fic-->

It's been a week since they updated it. I hope they can get the next chapter out soon!

TMNT jobs: Mikey

I wans't planning on doing one for Mikey since he kinda appears on Raph's thing but I felt that Raph needed his revenge :P

I was trying to find something else for Mikey to say besides "not the face" since Connie already used that joke on one of her fics but couldnt think of anything. :/

2:22 am
TMNT jobs: Splinter
It's 2am. Why am I still awake?
Here another TMNT job thing...brain needs sleep.
I just finished telling someone that I was going to start putting more effort into my doodles and then I halfa$$ this one.
Ah well...I'll do a better one next time.

Heeeerreeeee's Splinter the counselor!
I doubt that whoever is writing as him will have him flip out on any kids...I just thought it was funny.
Well...funny for a sleep deprived mind anyways.

TMNT Jobs: Don
I had more time on my hands than usual. Sooooo instead of drawing something I should be drawing ( art trades and gifts looong due >_> ) I drew another pic for the TMNT jobs fics...thing...
It hasn't been written yet...I don't know if they are going to make Don so psycho but I couldnt help myself here ^_~
BTW, Don will be a science teacher. Time to start homeschooling your kids, people!
Also, I'm sorry for the horrible handwriting >_<. I can't figure out how to get text on photoshop. (  MISHAFAIL DX )

EDIT: Yay me! I learned how to put text into my photoshop doodles! :D
I'll leave the Raph one as it is. But I had to fix this one...it was just bad...just....bad.

1:41 pm
TMNT Jobs: Raph

There's a small group of awesome writers on StealthyStores that are plannin' to write AU stories that have the TMNT living out in the open and with normal jobs on the side.  It started as an innocent challenge and just snowballed after that. :)
It looks like each writer is going to take on one character but still have it connect to the other charcters.
Anyways, I'm very excited to read it and I hope they are able to get a story out soon!
Until then, I drew some fanart when they were throwing ideas back and forth.
I was originally going to have the shell underneath the clothes but it just didn't look right. Not sure if they are going to do that in their story.
Here's Raph with his job as a grease monkey listening to Mikey the disc jockey on the radio.
I'm currently working on the other turtles and Splinter.  :P

Turtle Duos

More TMNT practice. But this time in pairs. I rarely draw two characters interacting and this proved to be a great distraction from my current life issues.
I'm not thrilled with how they all came out. Need to improve my anatomy  with them. :/

Turtle Practice

Been hating how I draw the turtles of late. So made myself practice them. It was fun and a bit therapeutic. :)

Calliopechild just updated her super fantastic TMNT fic The More Things Change and I couldn't help but doodle stuff inspired by the chapter :)

Also did a crappy quick coloring

Go read her fic if you haven't! You won't be disapointed--> http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4387325/1/The_More_Things_Change

This one is for MindyMousie over at StealthyStories.
I was rereading some of her drabbles ( because, gosh darnit, I was not in the mood for lengthy at the moment.) when I stumbled upon 'Fur' and 'Full Metal Pie'. I really love those two :3
I was going to draw something from Full Metal Pie but I've been really disliking how I draw the turtles of late. So instead drew from 'Fur', which is an excellent but sad drabble.
Go read it if you haven't--> http://www.5wwwww5.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14150&mforum=stealthystories

Also, this was my first time drawing Splinter! Woo!

Quicky for Connie

My apologies for how rushed this is! But right now I'm in between projects and didn't have too much time to spare :(
This is a quick lil' doodly doo for Connie Nervegas over at StealthyStories ( http://www.5wwwww5.com/forum/index.php?mforum=stealthystories ).
I felt bad about something she just went through with her father and wanted to do something that I hope would make her happy.
I wish I was able to make it a bit neater..I also wish I knew more about photoshop layers because, dagnabit  I can't figure out how they work D:<!!

Anyways...this is from her fic The Black Wings ( http://www.5wwwww5.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14139&mforum=stealthystories ).
It's a scene where Raph is sitting in a grocery cart with Klunk wearing a bonnet while he reads Titus Andronicus. You...you just have to read it. Like all her fics, it's well written fic and worth a read!

I may try tackling Splinter later. Bubblyshell's fic Letter's to Yoshi made me want to draw him.
Why isn't there more time in the day? D:

DA to LJ

I have these two on DA already, but since this has pretty much become my page for my TMNT art dumping I figured I might as well add the two other TMNT related art pieces I have.

This one if from the best TMNT webcomic out there.TigerFog's  Mutant Ninja Turtles Gaiden.
There are some parts of this that I love, and there are a ton of parts that I hate like the background FAIL.
Also, I went a wee bit over board with the blood brush >_>...

And this was just some doodles thrown together because I didn't feel like working on anything that required much effort because I'm laaazzzzyyyyyy.

This was inspired by Connie Nervegas. I really enjoy her TMNT fics and she updates almost daily :)
You can read her fics here--> http://www.5wwwww5.com/stealthystories/viewforum.php?f=369&mforum=stealthystories
 and here--> http://www.fanfiction.net/u/120063/Connie_Nervegas

This particular scene happened at the end of her most recent fic For the Love of a Motherboard and a similar scene happened in her other fic April's Diary where Don wins a boardgame, stands up, points to them all, and says "I own you!".

Doodled this quickly after reading her fic. My lack of effort in my own drawings is starting to disapoint me. I'm getting pretty darn lazy.

5:35 am
Another TMTC Don

Older drawing of Don from TMTC. I've softened his features since then.
I'll get it right eventually.

Sailor Turtle: Don & Ami

My urge to draw Sailor Moon and my need to cling to TMNT is the reason this fanart was born.
I would like to eventually doodle all the scouts with the turtles. But first, Donnie and Ami.

S'more TMNT and TMTC

I fail at getting the characters to look the same each time I draw them :(

Don to the A to the Tello

More TMNT practice. I like this batch better than the first. I'm getting more comfortable with my tablet :)

3:40 pm

Not feeling too good today. But, got to spend my whole day doodling :)
Did some expression practice with Calliopechild's human TMNT descriptions.
And I did an OC. Never did I ever think I'd ever draw a TMNT OC, but Calliopechild's fic ( The More Things Change) is so well written you can't help but fall for the OC's that pop up.
Anywho, if you haven't read her fantastic fic yet then please please do!

She recently introduced a new character and I really wanted to draw her but couldnt decide on a hair style. So, Calliopedchild, if you're reading this, could you send me an email telling me how you imagine Leah's hair? Also, if you see any of the characters differently from how I've drawn them then let me know and I'll change it :)

Bored and procrastinating on cleaning. So, doodled some Donny. My turtle drawings need work. Practice practice practice.
