Jaclynn and Me Drawings!

Hi everyone!
I thought it would be fun to show you guys some of the drawings I've done lately of me and Jaclynn.:) Some of them are us in real life, others are us as Star Wars characters.;D
Lately, I've been really excited at the idea of getting a job in the future! One of the places I think would be fun (and easy!;D) to work at would be a frozen yogurt shop! So, I made this drawing of me and Jaclynn working at Yogurtland. I love it, but that counter top took me FOREVER to color in!XD

This drawing is of me and her in the Arctic, in huge, comfy coats. My lips are even blue! I love this drawing, I just wanna grab Jaclynn's coat and squish it!!!XD
This drawing is of me and Jaclynn on Ilum, the planet where Padawans go to get their lightsaber crystals. I LOVE OUR COATS! Especially mine! I love the neck part.XD
Just me as a Jedi, posing all cool-like!XD I like my pose yet my face doesn't seem to be my usual face I that's annoying.XD
As I said in an earlier post, Jaclynn's dream is to have a purple lightsaber, but I gave her a blue one in the fan fic I'm writing. Well, I decided I'd change that in the editing stage, so now she's happy.XD
And now, for just one extra drawing of Cookie and Dee version of us...
It's us melting in the sun.
*starts sobbing*
I hope you liked seeing these drawings! I have another Star Wars idea for a drawing of us, so I'll be showing you guys that once I make it.:D

Time - A Disney Infinity Figure Photoshoot + Soda?

Hi everyone!
I'm sorry it's been a week since I made a post, I've been a bit clueless as to what to post...;)  I don't want to bombard you guys with drawings and Star Wars, yet I don't know what to post concerning writing... So, I'm at a stand-still.;)
But I just had an idea as I was writing that sentence...I plan to follow up on it.XD
Anyway, I recently watched Alice Through the Looking Glass and LOVED IT!! I loved Time, a true "gray" character in a writing world. A character who is not bad or good, I loved that.XD
So right after we watched it, I got the Infinity figure! He's my first non Star Wars figure, which I am both excited and disappointed by...XD
He's so cool, and I got to take pictures of him at a new place! 

I love him.XD
I hope you liked the pictures, but I'm not done with this post yet!
I tend to come to the place I took the pics of Time a lot, and when we go I've been getting different flavors of soda. My oldest sister tried this Coco Fizz a couple weeks ago, and she got me hooked! It's so good, it tastes like carbonated chocolate milk!XD 
The last time we went, I got this praline cream soda. It was so good, I might like it even more than  the Coco Fizz!;) It tasted sort of like praline ice cream soda. I guess that's the cream part.;)
So, I don't know why I wanted to share my soda pictures with you, but...I did.XD What's your favorite soda? Have you watched the new Alice movie?:)

Star Wars ComLINKS - Clone Troopers and Rex

Hi everyone!
I had so much fun doing last month's Star Wars ComLINKS that I decided to try doing all of the ones from now on.;)
This month's topic is "Favorite Trooper"!
I had a bit of a hard time trying to decide which kind of trooper was my favorite...when it hit me!
Clone troopers are by far my favorite kind! Something about the awesome design of their helmets and the way a lot of the armor is customized to the clone is just so cool! Like, I can't explain why I love it so much!
But although I love all the clones, my favorite in particular is Captain Rex! His helmet's artwork is simple yet totally perfect for him, and him in general is awesome! I love the special "accessories" to his armor, like the shoulder pad and hip pads (or whatever.;P). I loved getting to see him again in Rebels with Ahsoka.
So, yeah. He's my favorite.XD
I hope you guys liked reading about which kind of trooper is my favorite. If you want to join in the Star Wars ComLINKS fun- you really should -you can go to Jen's fabulous blog here and check it out!:D
Which kind of trooper is your favorite?:)

Glazed Part Twenty-Seven

Hi everyone!
Can you believe how many parts there are to this series? I am really curious to know just how many there are...
If you have never read any of Glazed, there is a page for it where you can read all of the parts.:)
Emma, Wes, and Crumbles pushed on through the mountains to where Wes said the North Mountain lay. At one point, Emma looked back from where they had begun and she spotted Jaclynn's castle, nestled deep down below the mountains. It seemed to be completely covered in hardened glaze and Emma shivered.
“Dee's kingdom,” she sighed. Wes noticed her absence and walked back to her.
“Wow. It's completely glazed,” he breathed.
Emma thought for a moment. She couldn't bare to see it like that, and what if Jaclynn wouldn't fix everything? She stared at the sprinkles on the ground that she knew was caused by Jaclynn's magic. Emma turned back to the path and shook her head. She couldn't doubt Jaclynn, but the worry continued to gnaw at her.
What if?
Emma and Wes could finally see the North Mountain in the distance. At least, they should have been able to. Thick caramel colored clouds blocked the view from where they were and Emma couldn't make anything other than a vague silhouette of the mountain. They hiked through the mountains, Emma's legs killing her, when they came across a lake that had hardened from the unnatural cold, but it wasn't clear. It had a beige tint to the water and pink, blue, and orange sprinkles were frozen in the lake. Trees were covered in sprinkles and Emma gasped. She could smell the donut smell beckoning her and she took a deep breath of the delicious air. Crumbles constantly licked the ground, tasting the sweet toppings that covered the ground. Now he was licking the trees, where sappy glaze had stuck to the trunks and branches.
“This is beautiful,” Emma noted, and Wes nodded his head. She heard a sigh.
“It really is beautiful.”
Emma whirled around and stared at Wes. He looked at her with the same look.
“Hello?” Emma asked, searching the scene around her, “Is anyone here?”
“Well, yeah,” the goofy voice said.
“Then show yourself!” Wes demanded.
“Uh, I am! Look down!”
Emma's eyes immediately shot to to the ground and she jumped. There in front of her was a Donut Man, the kind she and Jaclynn would make out of the snow. Or was it snow? She felt like she should remember, but there was nothing in her mind except a tiny itch, as if something was supposed to be there.
“Hi, I'm McGlaze!”
Emma took a step back and raised her hand to her mouth. “McGlaze? As in, the Donut Man we had made when Jaclynn and I were kids?” She dipped down and sat next to him.
“Mhm!” He nodded his head. Emma gazed at him. He had a yellowish orange complexion, the color of glaze, three jagged sprinkles coming out from his head, one yellow, one red, and the other pink, blue eyes, a silly grin, and a donut as his body. Emma smiled. He looked just how they had created him. Back when they were best friends. Tears burned in her eyes but she shook her head to clear her vision.
“But how are you alive?” Emma questioned, scrutinizing him.
“Dee made me! That's all I know,” he replied, “Why are you so curious?”
“Because...It's not everyday that you get to meet a Donut man,” Emma laughed.
“And, she needs to find Jaclynn. Can you help at all?” Wes asked. Emma thought on what he said. He excluded himself from the journey. Would he decide to leave her at some point in the trip?
“Of course! I know exactly where Dee is! Come on everyone!” McGlaze shouted and he waddled off, Emma, Wes, and Crumbles on his heels.
I hope you liked this part, it really wasn't that long.;)
I am so proud of myself, I think the last four posts I've made (this one included) haven't had Star Wars in them! YAY!XD But I'm gonna break that chain with the next post...;)

Hi everyone!
Megan over at A Barefoot Gal did this challenge, and I thought it looked like so much fun! I had to get in on it!:D

3. A Song That Makes You Happy?
"Always Sing" by RaeLynn is really fun, so maybe that one?;)
4. A Song That Makes You Sad?
I usually don't get necessarily sad when I listen to songs... but an encouraging song when I am sad is "He Is With You" by Mandisa.;) Not the same thing, but it can make me cry as well as encouraged.XD Oh, "Lucy" from Skillet is so sad, so that one!
5. A Song That Reminds You of Someone
Probably "For Good" from Wicked. It makes me think of my sister because we would sing it together, and it just has lots of happy memories.:)
6. A Song That Reminds You of Somewhere
Ooh, this is hard... I don't go to a lot of places...XD Maybe "Welcome to Mystery" by Plain White T's because it makes me think of a place that's mysterious yet almost perfect. Another question answered the wrong way.XD
7. A Song That Reminds You of a Certain Event
*starts singing the opening credit song of Star Wars*
The Force Awakens soundtrack...definitely.XD

10. A Song That Makes You Fall Asleep
Any classical song is soothing and could help me fall asleep, I'm sure.;)

"Rise" by Skillet. I love that song! It's hard to explain how I feel when I listen to it!XD It's somewhere in between empowering and fear.XD
12. (There is none?O.o)
13. A Song From a Band You Hate
I don't know if I have a band I don't like...
14. A Song That No One Would Expect You To Love
I have no, my music taste varies so widely that I feel like someone could expect me to like ANY song!XD
15. A Song That Describes You
"Waiting For Superman" by Daughtry. It might not describe me perfectly, but it's what I would like to imagine myself as.XD
16. A Song That You Used To Love But Now You Hate
Um...maybe "Let it Go"? I don't know, because I still really like that song, I'm just so used to it!XD
17. A Song That You Hear on the Radio
Oh, humph. I can't ever remember any songs I listen to on the radio, except for maybe some I remember listening a few years ago like "Mean" by Taylor Swift and "Blown Away" by Carrie Underwood.:)
18. A Song That You Wish You Heard on the Radio
"Feel Invincible" by Skillet! I love that song! But other than that, maybe some more of Casting Crowns.:)

"Defying Gravity" then!:) I have no idea if soundtrack and album are considered the same thing..XD

"It's Not Me It's You" by Skillet, probably.:) Or anything by Red.;)

"Stand in the Rain" by Superchick or "Beauty from Pain".:)

24. A Song That You Want To Play At Your Funeral
I don't know!XD
25. A Song That Makes You Laugh
"White and Nerdy" by "Weird Al" Yankovic as well as "Hellfire" (I think) from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. I can't remember if that's the name of it, but it's sung by Frollo, and it's all together hilarious and awesome!XD
26. A Song That You Can Play on an Instrument
"Fur Elise" is one of them, I can play it on the piano.;)
27. A Song That You Wish You Could Play
28. A Song in a Foreign Language That You Like

Drawings I've Been Working on Most Recently

Guten Tag!
I thought it would be fun to show you some of the most recent drawings I've done as well as some of the things I am focusing on with my drawings and some different techniques I'm trying!:) A lot of these drawings are unfinished, so prepare.;)
This is my summer girl, who's ready to spend her days in the sun, but she's also sort of trying to act cooler than she is.XD 
I've been a lot more into drawing bodies and drawing guys, too. I love drawing arms, they're so fun!XD 
I drew this person off of my mannequin, something I don't usually do. Not my best but I think she's cute.;) 
I've never been good with the "looking behind the shoulder" pose.;) 
This guy sort of reminds me of Alex from The Unwanteds.;)
One of the new techniques I've been trying is with my character's necks. Instead of making them curved, I've made them pretty much stick-straight and go straight down, then draw the shoulders out of the neck and sweep down, drawing those in between shoulder and neck muscles. It's always awkward drawing the weird neck at the beginning, but when you do the shoulders it looks great! I think it's my new way of drawing necks for good! I especially like it for guys, it makes them look more masculine.:) 
This was sort of a water queen to me, she was fun to draw!:) 
I have to say I am very proud of myself for doing this guy! LOOK, EVERYONE! HE LOOKS LIKE A DUDE (and an adult dude at that)!XD That's hard! LOL! I still have a far way to come, but I'm slowly getting better.:) I can't wait to see what my guys look like in a year!:D
I hope you liked looking at some of my most recent drawings! Since I am in this phase where I draw with reckless abandon, a lot of my drawings haven't turned out, but this is the kind of phase that's really helpful for my future drawings! Trying, failing, then learning!;)
Auf Wiedersehen!;)
Are there any new things you've tried lately? Food, techniques, activity, etc.,?:)

Pictures I've Taken

Hi everyone!
I take pictures when I find something cool, but that doesn't necessarily mean I post them, since I don't think that a couple of pictures make a very interesting post. But I thought that a post with the collective pictures I've taken over a long period of time would be fun!:)
I took some of these pictures at Hillside, a craft fair that I go to.:) This picture was of a door with its paint peeling. I really like it for some reason.:) 
This picture is of a cobweb or spider's web that was attached to a fire hydrant. It's one of the few pictures I've gotten where I actually have legitimate bokeh!:) 
Another picture with bokeh, I love how this one turned out!:) 
Hillside had these pretty pink flowers, although they look more purple in this picture.;) 
I hope I don't have to explain what this is.;D 
The sky was looking so cool one day, and I took this picture. Doesn't the clouds look like tire tracks? Or doesn't the sky sort of look like water?:) 
I got this picture in my backyard, I thought it was really cool!:) 
I have a drawing mannequin on my desk and the sun was casting a really cool shadow on the cork behind it. I think this picture is so interesting! I'm pretty sure I edited it.;)
I hope you guys enjoyed seeing some of my photography.:) Sorry I haven't posted in over a week, I just didn't really know what to post. I'm trying to not post as much Star Wars, but that's really hard...XD I hope to have some writing tip posts up, but sometimes it's difficult to think about which topic to talk about.XD
Have a nice day!:)
Which picture was your favorite?:)

Me as a Sith

Hi everyone!
As all of you should know, I am on the Dark Side...
(Oh, really? THEY DIDN'T NOTICE! *so much sarcasm*)
Well, I am.
And Anonymous A wanted me to draw myself as a Sith. I've done this a couple of times before, but I thought I would draw another picture for this post. AND HERE IT IS!XD
I've got yellow eyes and a red lightsaber!
"Awesome. Awesome! AWESOME!"
If you don't know why I'm just quoting "awesome" over and over, you really need to watch the Star Wars LEGO TV show! It's hilarious!XD
Talking about Star Wars LEGO TV shows, has anyone started watching the new TV show, The Freemaker Adventures, on Disney XD? It's really good!:)
Here's another picture of Star Wars me with Jaclynn!;)
I'm a Jedi in this picture! Yes, THERE WAS A TIME I WAS A JEDI! LOL!
I hope you liked my drawings!:)
