Wow I haven't drawn (or even sketched or anything) in almost three weeks, it's been really getting to my head.

Midterm season is just about over now, so I'll only have a few heavy assignments from here until finals. Maybe I'll be able to draw on weekends again balloon 

My style makes very weird abrupt changes when I take long breaks from art; it's actually very interesting to observe haha. I've been wanting to draw rocks and little streams for a few days because of a cute little tune that's been stuck in my head, but I didn't really have a plan for where I was going with this piece when I started. I splotched blue and brown on the canvas, and then basically improvised from there :giggle:

Also, how are you? How is everything going?
The charity art book is now available for purchase! See here!
All proceeds go to Save the Children Foundation c:
Brighter Future Preview
:iconbrighter-future: is an art book in the making. The art book has art from several artists following the theme of "I want to be."

Proceeds from the art book will be donated to Save the Children

This is a preview of my piece in the art book c:

Fight Scene
I was working on this before summer ended, but then summer ended.
Do point out any mistakes if you see mistakes, it'd be a huge help!

Anyway, my major happens to be one of the busiest (if not the single busiest) science majors at the university, so I might go MIA every once in a while. It's very fun though, I like what I'm doing c:

There is a lot going on in the world today. In fact, there has always been a lot going on in the world, but people have been becoming more and more aware of it every day for the past year or so. Recently, an event took place that quite personally affects people very close to me, as well as my own ability to see them and spend time with them. People’s reactions have been good and bad. Happy and sad. I  guess in some way, I want to see how much I can do to increase the “happy” and decrease the “sad”.

Consider this an experiment. I’ve been taking commissions for a while now, solely for the sake of experience, but I want to do this with a different purpose, and in a different way. Essentially, all I’ll be changing is the method of payment. Rather than myself, the payee will be a charity or some form of non-profit humanitarian organisation of the commissioner’s choice (directly to them to avoid any possible transfer fees or any ambiguity).

The same rules for pricing and what I will and won’t draw apply (see below); simply comment or note me with your request, as well as the foundation you would like to donate to (I’d like to know what I’m contributing to, but I’ll generally accept any non-violent, reputable organisation :) )

Donations to education, orphans, children in poverty, health, and national and international disasters are all types that we could roll with, just let me know which charity it is and be sure to save a copy of the receipt.

These are some examples of charities I would donate to. These are all Canadian, but do accept donations internationally (as far as I know). Any of these is pretty much automatically accepted :)

1- Canadian Cancer Society
Donate amount and screenshot receipt or confirmation email. Receipts are automatically sent for donations of $20 or more.

2-  Islamic Relief…
For this, you may choose where your donation goes. Choose the Emergencies category and designate it to desired destination.

Destinations include:
Food packs
Yemen/Syrian/Palestinian emergency appeal
Global disaster fund

Send screenshot of confirmation email/confirmation page.

3- Canadian Feed the Children
For this, you may choose which country your donation is sent towards. This includes developing countries + Canada (it’s a Canadian charity :P )
Send screenshot of confirmation email/confirmation page.

4- Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology…
Send screenshot of confirmation email/confirmation page.

5- Daily Bread Foodbank…
Send screenshot of confirmation email/confirmation page.
