Goodbye(but not entirely!)

I guess the time has come to say officially, that I'm finished posting on this blog. I enjoyed it, but I started it a long time ago, and my personal direction and maturity has changed and grown since then. I'm not deleting it, so all the art and other randomness will still be here to look at, and if you comment or whatnot to contact me here, I'll still see it. I'm just not going to post here anymore. Thank you so much if you read my stories(I realize they were more than a little random and pointless, esp. without a connection to the characters) and supporting the art. Starting this blog was a big step when I did it, and without it I never would have started my new blog, or started writing as much.
All that said, I would love it if you checked out my other blog,

I'd love to have you!
Lots of Love,

(p.s if you are here and have an interest in The Rope Trick, please let me know. I'm not sure what to do about the fan page here, I want to keep it up, but not necessarily have it on my other blog. But at the same time, I'm not sure it gets much traffic or use, sooo... we'll see about it.)

You. Yes you. 

Ok never mind it's nothing serious. I just wanted to say if you follow this blog, check out my other blog if you haven't already-

I post here much more regularly.

Hope you're doing well and having a blessed holiday season thus far!

Sketch dump

Sketch dump... Ack I've not been happy with my art lately. It's disheartening when you last two sketchbooks have better set then your current one. Granted I haven't been devoting much studious time to serious art. I have better hopes for the future! Hope you all are doing well! Happy Thanksgiving- early!

I wa doing doodles in 'gio' style, as he would draw them...
Easter... I had my sketchbook at church and was feeling dark so I did this. 
Littles:3 I like drawing kids and their anatomy is so much more forgiving than adults.
Rope trick sketch
I was talking about how pretty vi island my bro declared she is ugly. So now I'm at a loss. 
The thinker/Francis 
What being INTP is like- the top shows how it feels to be pulled betwixt you logical side and fanciful side. The bottom is me and Ryn 
A story idea I just hatched... I'd love it as an animated short by skills lack currently.
And Julian for the rope trick.

Hopefully next time I have some better stuff to show. Blah.

Sketch dump( a realllllly long sketch dump with a really cute drawing at the bottom)

Ok so I haven't uploaded any artwork anywhere recently. Therefore the major(like seriously huge) sketch dump following. I'll put explanatory captions on the different ones that need it. Sorry there are so many, it's just... You know. 
My boys in their soccer uniforms... Little and the high school. My bros just had soccer season, so I drew this back then.
Here I begin a very long spell of drawing sweet little Christmas scenes.
I have color versions of this and the one right above that I'll post eventually.
These are comics in various stages... If you can't read them don't worry they aren't overly clever, I just thought the different stages of finishednes might be interesting. I have no idea why this is in link font but whatever.
The one time Francis tried to ask a girl out...
Here I tried coloring... I really like it, although the words really are flat.
Some sketches from photographs.
I've been working on kids for a project I'm in the early stages of....
I want to make more of these, so if you have any ideas let me know. Isn't that an ugly word for beautiful?
Father and son:3
One of my nano characters, Margerat Murdoch. 
Romeos wedding... Look. At proud big brother. Just look at him.
Besties... So cute.
This is one of my favorite things I've ever drawn. I'm not kidding. Like I can't handle the cuteness. I just keep staring at it.
And more little cousins.

Again I'm sorry for the length... I shouldn't have let them get so backed up. At any rate I hope you enjoy looking at them!! Also, I know I said I was going to do an inktober review, but I kind of failed at that, so unless you really want to see the like three good pictures I did for it, I'm not going to bother. But if there is interest I will. Hope you have been having a good while since I wrote... I've been busy lately, myself! God Bless until next time❤️ Nina

Here's a little something...

I'll try and write a short post for now.
So I've been having fun drawing/imagining/storying my OCs in AUs! 
Gios imagination contains various 'lands' in which all his friends and relations feature in exciting new roles ;) above is pirate Gio and medieval Gio. Along with 'supporting' roles.
Roman era 
Soldiers(look. At Francis.) and the original idea that started me off- Cowboys!!!!
Supporting roles 
More cowboys( bonus points to anyone who knows who all those characters are in their regular context!!) and space age. Ryn was looking at that one and all of a sudden goes 'Gio looks a little...spacey' and proceeded to then laugh hysterically. 

So that's that. I think putting your OCs in alternate settings is great for fun and practice. 
Also who doesn't like to draw their charries in all sorts of adorable costumes? If you want clarification on who any of the drawings are, tell me, it's just a little hard to type extensively on here:) good night!!
