"Finish every day and be done with it.You have done what you could.Some blunders and absurditiesno doubt have crept in;forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day;begin it well and serenelyand with too high a spiritto be cumbered withyour old nonsense.
This day is all that isgood and fair.It is too dear,with its hopes and invitations,to waste a moment on yesterdays.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson

I keep forgetting to post this! This was a commission for tumblr user clerical-error that I finished around November of last year. This beautiful line was her senior quote in high school, and going into her senior year of college she wanted to have a piece centered around it (which I think is a really, really great idea).

Painting 3 of 4 in a series I decided to center around this astronaut dude! The prompt for this one was “turbulence.”

# these guys have three pupils per eye and they expand when they're in the dark or scared
# there are iris membranes between the pupils but they appear to be one big pupil when they ''merge''
# they also have four legs and zero butt which is why I was trying to figure out how that would work bone-wise???

tryin’ to nail down the design for an alien species that evolved in a land where birds and flying insects don’t exist.

I like to imagine Songbird and Elizabeth had a lot of genuinely happy nights during her childhood. Sometimes she’d read to him aloud, and he would just watch and listen intently and curiously, studying her face and voice and joyously soaking in the bright, enthusiastic smiles she’d constantly flash in his direction.

Later she’d sing lullabies and he’d croon back; she’d fall asleep nestled up against his chest, with one of his big, soft, gloved hands placed protectively on her shoulder and a wing tucked tightly over them both.

Anonymous: I'm really impressed you used prismacolor pens and ink for your songbird poster. It seems like most of the stuff I see of that quality is usually digital. You've done a beautiful job :) Out of curiosity: how big is the piece in real life?

oh gosh, thank you, anon! I think I forgot to put on there that there’s just a tiny bit of acrylic, too (just that white reflection in his eye & on the tips of his talons), but thank you, that means a lot to me! uwu

in-person the piece is on 9x11 bristol board with a little less than an inch border around it!

Prismacolor pen and ink!
This was originally going to be a propaganda-poster-esque thing with some words but I CAN’T DECIDE ON WORDS so it’s just songbird for now uwu
