Meeting Jura by Maitia
Meeting Jura
An illustration for a Sterek fic by the lovely Kellifer. The perspective took me a long time to get right, but the dragon made it worth it. You can find the fic on AO3, if you want to read it. Which you really should because it's awesome. It's called "My wings a hurricane". Go forth and read.
The shaman, take two by Maitia
The shaman, take two
Recently I've been messing around with animal traits - butterfly wings on fish, antlers on humans, bird wings on foxes - and I can't seem to stop. Here, I just liked the way the antlers echo in the staff and the trees.
My scanner's horrible, though. It smudges things terribly, and I really hope I can replace it at some point.

I'm so excited. I just can't hide it.

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 18, 2013, 12:34 PM

In light of the great news about the new Potter film series, I thought I should probably update my journal to something more Potter-esque.
I am so excited!
I know that a lot of people are very sceptical about the whole thing, but this is the queen herself writing the screenplay! I firmly believe it will be awesome because:
    1.     It won't be an adaptation of a book, so nothing will be lost in the translation.  
    2.     It won't be written by somebody else - it'll be pure, undiluted Rowling.
    3.     It won't be about Harry at all, so no need to fear some sort of prequel. Voldemort will be a small boy, or not even born yet, at the time the story is set.
    4.     We'll get loads of really cool magical beasts.
    5.     Newt is a seriously cool dude.
    6.     Get excited!

In other news, I'm preparing for an exhibition, which is going to be a lot of fun, I think. The theme is "Clash between reality and the unreal", which means I get to paint a lot of really cool things. Like fish with butterfly wings, strange trees etc.

I know I haven't been active on DA for a while, but I hope to change that soon.
That's all for now, but please feel free to message me to flail about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

... Seriously, get excited!

Yes I saw! Very lovely! I should get started on the ashwinder I was going to draw.

To be honest I thought I would be quicker, but it turns out I really have to be in the right mood to have the inspiration to do them. Maybe it's the same for you

Well, so far it's really just been a problem of work, work and more work. I'm visiting a family member in hospital this weekend, but I should (finally) have some time for drawing monday and tuesday.

Thank you very much! We feel quite old and worldly.
.... And there was so much cake!

Cake is always good on a birthday :D

Exactly, and mine had two! A sticky mocha pudding with Kahlúa sour cream, and a chocolate cake topped with lemon curd cream and passion fruit. It was decadent, to say the least.
