Hey darlings, I've got some questions for you. I'm looking into doing a semester abroad this fall, but my school doesn't have an official program which really just means I have to do most of the legwork on my own.
So that's where you guys come in! After doing a little research on my own and being thoroughly confused by the way your college/university system is set up as compared the US one, I was hoping you guys could help me out and possibly recommend some places based on your own experiences so I'll have a better starting point for what to look at. I'm not picky about where in the UK, so that's nothing to worry about. I would love for it t
I have access! It's a super interesting program and I'm really happy that I've finally got a chance to play with it. I'm going to use this journal to post my thoughts on the program as I learn it. It will be updated every time I have something new to say about the program.
Please note, I am still learning this program and there is almost no direction on how to do so, thus I'm flying blind. Because of this I may miss things such as features I complain of the program not having. Feel free to correct me if that is the case!
:bulletgreen:Can’t find a way to adjust the actual size of the page. It seems the only sizes avail
Because I need a little help with the title for a comic I'm working on. I already know, basically, what I want the title to be, I just need to have someone let me know if the Latin I'm using means what I want it to. So if any of you know Latin or know someone who does and could send them my way I would be much obliged!
Alrighty, the title needs to mean "Abandoned Power" or something very close to that, which I think is "Relictus Potentia" in Latin. Operative word there being think. My knowledge of Latin is incredibly limited. Also, the main characters of the comic are all female, so I would like the title to be the feminine forms of the word
Sorry for the double upload! Something got screwed up with the last one.
Anyways, this is a lineart I did for the Dean/Cas Color Exchange over on tumblr. It was super fun and I can't wait until they do another exchange.
You are more than welcome to color this, however there's a few rules:
1) Please leave my watermark on the picture.
2) You may post your colored version anywhere you like, but you MUST link back to the original lineart so that other people can find it and color it if they want to.
3) You must send me a link to where you posted the work if you do color it so I can see your beautiful art!
Press download for the full-sized lineart and have fun!

This one is fun.
Still alive, even if I haven't be around much. I'm working on lots of stuff though!
I've got a good job at my college right now, though the pay is pretty horrid so I'll probably be pushing my commissions a bit more over the summer. I'm always open if anyone is interested! I'll have a journal up with more specific info sometime in the next couple weeks, but if you're interested now please feel free to note me. The nice thing about the job though is that I'm working the front desk which means I've got lots of time to draw and work on my own stuff while at work which is great because I've got a lot of projects going right now including querying
The home of one of the characters in my new writing project "Masqued." There will probably be a lot more concepts of this place as a good chunk of one of the novels happens here. And because I'm in love with the place. That to. It is in the Colorado Rockies in roughly the same area as my family cabin and is in a state of sort of...intentional shambles.
This was my first serious attempt with prisma markers and while it isn't perfect I'm still pretty happy with it. There's a few bits of prisma colored pencils in there as well, but it's 98% marker. Recently my college store had a sale on Prisma Markers for $0.80 each and these things are normally $3.50 at my school store and up to $6.50 each at local craft stores so, needless to say, I bought a fucking crap ton of them (seriously, I carry them around in a suitcase because it's the only thing big enough) even though I'd never used markers before. So now I figure I probably SHOULD use them and thus I'll be using them a lot. If anyone has tips they'd like to share I'd love to hear them!
Also...trees. Specifically the leafy/needley parts of trees. ...I tried. I really did. I'm super happy with the trunks of the trees, but the leafy/needley parts? Not so much... I know the perspective is off a bit as well in a few areas, but I realized to late to really do anything about it. Next time!
More stuff for my new novel project "The Violet Veil" which is a part of my bigger project "Masqued." This time it is the first nine outfits worn by one of the main characters; Shae. I promise there is logic to the weird variety of styles and time periods she wears. And to the fact her hair is black in one drawing... Fashion is an important part of the world of the book, especially to Shae, so I'm going to be drawing every main outfit that she wears in the books. These nine encompass around the first 1/3 to maybe the first 1/2 of the first book depending how things work out. More will come later once I better plot out the rest of the first book and eventually the later books.
Also, sorry for the horrid anatomy. I'm still trying to get the hang of legs... and you know, a lot of other things. >.> I was more focused on the fashions themselves for this project though, so I'm not to bothered by it.
An illustration for my review of "King of Thieves" by Jane Kindred. Holy hell is it a good book (and series for that matter). Fair warning before you go looking though, it does feature a gay BDSM relationship and quite often more than two people being...involved. You can read the review here: katy-l-wood.tumblr.com/post/84…
Sadly this is not a scene from the book, as much as I might want it to be because...you know, uniforms and wings and shibari...all great things. It's still the main characters though, Belphagor (in the uniform) and Vasily (in the rope), so I figure it counts. Enough. Shh. >.>
Anywho, the uniform is based off of Russian military uniforms as the book is heavily Russian based and some parts take place in Russia. I didn't do a straight copy of the Russian uniforms though, for various reasons. I liked this cut of the uniform better but the colors of the uniforms with this cut didn't fit what I was going for. That and I'm pretty sure this ISN'T an airforce uniform despite the fact that he is wearing an airforce hat (which is a not so subtle call to the fact that he's an airspirit). The only good reference I could find for multiple types of uniforms was all in Russian, alright? And not only was it in Russian, it wasn't even Russian text, it was a picture of Russian text so I couldn't just have Chrome translate the page for me. I tried.
However, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out overall because it looks pretty much EXACTLY like I pictured it looking when I started, which as any artist will tell you is a fucking raritey. That shit doesn't happen. But it did and I'm very pleased about it. I think Bel's wings turned out really well to. I wasn't sure how to convey wings made of air, so I went through a few different ideas. I really like this one even if it doesn't quite convey "air" because, for some reason, if I always pictured the elemental wings in the book to look sort of like glass filled with the element of that spirit.
Also, do you know how much of a pain it is to DRAW shibari setups? Trying to make sure you have the same amount of rope going into the knot as you do coming out of the knot, making sure ropes doen't vanish when they go between different parts of the body or around them. It made my brain hurt.
This is the smuttiest thing I've ever posted here so...sorry if this shocks any of you. I do a lot of smut related stuff, actually, it's just that 90% of it can't end up here. But I'm so damn proud of this one I'm gonna toe the line a little. hehe.
I got a new kitty today! (Because that's the emotionally healthy response to a horrid weekend, right? CRAZY CAT LADY STATUS I AM ON MY WAY.)
Anyways. Her name is Rumble and she is just a big ball of cuddly sweetness.
:bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen:EDIT: I have opened a GoFundMe page as well, so even if you guys can't afford a commission but could spare a few dollars I would really appreciate it since I really do need to get out of my current situation. http://www.gofundme.com/8y07j4 :bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen:
Hey guys, nothing like a "life sucks" journal to balance out the happiness of getting a new cat, right? The short of it is, I have decided that my college is not the best place for me right now if ever. They have repeatedly disrespected me and screwed me over and I'm just done with it. The whole affair has been exhausting and I
Needed something mind-numbingly distracting after my shitty week, so I decided to re-do my page a bit! I'm still working on it, but I'd love to know what you guys think so far.
I re-did that newest box so many times. I completely broke my entire page once while working on it. Like, all image links broke, images glitched the fuck out, nothing would load. Had to pretty much reset firefox to fix it. Not entirely sure what exactly went wrong however...
It was a couple years ago (according to the date of the deviation anyways. It doesn't feel that long ago. O.o). I've decided to go back and polish it up and make a fully-designed one with all fasteners and hardware included, more pieces, etc. So that's where you guys come in! I'd love to hear your ideas about what else could be included, anything that could be improved, etc. Basically, tell me what your dream workspace would be and what it would need!
A lot of you guys have really liked this piece, which makes me very happy because I'm pretty happy with it myself. Not entirely, mind you, but still relatively happy. Any-who. The reason I'm writing this is because Vivian's House, more specifically it's location, is actually based the area where my family cabin is. This was done because, for one, it is a beautiful area in the Colorado Rockies, and also because I am really familiar with the area which makes it easy for me to write about it since her house, and the area around it, is an important setting in my new novel project.
Anyways, the reason I'm rambling about all this is because I'm go
It's done! Been working on this for over two weeks now, off and on. These are the six main characters of my new novel project "The Violet Veil" the first novel of which is currently titled "Kith and Kin." In order we've got the actress, the mountain woman, the first grade teacher, the mountain man, the soldier, and the actor.
Fashion is a very important part of the world these characters live in, so what they're wearing really reflects who they are and I spent a lot of time on their outfits and each outfit went through a lot of revisions.
Also, I noticed something while researching clothing for Dustin. Trying to find good pictures of mountain men is like trying to find pictures of Bigfoot. I eventually gave up and pulled out some old westerns to watch for reference material. My dad would be so proud.
You'll be seeing a lot more of these six in the coming months! If you want to know more about the story, you can read about it here.
Time to complete: 4-5 hours each. Lots of revisions since this is my first time drawing any of these guys.

Sorry I couldn't get these up on Instagram like I promised, guys! My phone decided it no longer wants to function up there.
But anyways, here's some pictures of the area around where my character Vivian's house is. The location is the setting for around half of at least one book in the series that I have created Vivian for. It is the Williams Fork Valley area of Colorado which played host to Ute Indians along with a few other tribes and there was at least one large battle there. The battle ground is now under the Williams Fork Reservoir though. There were also frequent Ute horse races in the area, though the track can no longer be seen.
Who's going to be there? I will be there all three days with a couple friends. If you see me please don't hesitate to come up and say hello. I'll be in my standard con outfit (with some new upgrades for this year!).
I'm super excited for this year's con because there's a ton of good panels that I'm looking forward to going to, and a few artists I'm looking forward to seeing in Artist Valley. Should be super fun.
Also, standard con-outfit is this thing, my hair is just a bit shorter now:
Kala and his albino parrot Ghost. Haven’t drawn this idiot in way to long so I decided to draw him as a quick break from comic pages and homework.
Kala is a ghost hunter and runs a paranormal talk show (Named “Searching For Strange”) out of Glenwood Springs Colorado. Half Russian, half Italian, and Asexual for all intents and purposes. His full name is Daren Michael Cook but he always goes by Kala, Kalaghata, or Mike. He’s got four other pets (not counting fish): a deaf black cat named Jack-O-Lantern (Jack for short), and three huskies two of which are each missing a leg and one who is blind. He’s trained the parrot to hand out candy on Halloween and talk on the radio show, and he’s got the huskies trained to pull his nieces and nephews in their sleds. Jack’s just an untrained idiot who may have a bit of brain damage as well, but Kala loves him.
Kala actually doesn’t go with any story in particular. He’s like my signature in my big projects. He shows up everywhere. If he’s in a story you know it’s mine.

I could've sworn I uploaded this here...apparently not.
I suppose this at is a tiny bit spoilery, but no more than anything Cassandra Jean drew before the book even came out so I figure it’s okay. I never want to draw a character surrounded by fire again. Never. It made me want to chuck my tablet out the window. -dead- I mean, I discovered an awesome new method of painting fire which saved me a hell of a lot of time. But still. The lighting. THE LIGHTING. Never again
