I had the absolutely overwhelming urge to redo my Trickster piece last night. I really don't have time for it, but then again, if I've learned one thing, it's that my Muse is capricious and obstinate and must be obeyed if she is to cooperate with me and give me all the pretty, pretty inspiration. (Actually, I'm quite suspicious that my Muse is an Egyptian cat that is accustomed to worship. Well, that makes it sound like she's Bastet. Which I doubt, because I'm being metaphorical here. But still... highly venerated inner feline aspect of self. Or what have you. Mrow.) So... I guess I'll start the sketch sometime today. It'll be basically the same idea, but with a slightly different pose, and something about an off-kilter reflection in water that I'm not quite clear on yet. I'm going to either do it as a digital painting or as a grayscale with color tint. Not sure yet.

Speaking of the Muse, I feel perhaps it might be a good habit to adopt, to begin to honor her in small, daily rituals. Whether or not she's some sort of divine figure or messenger or literal embodiment of creativity, or just an aspect of self really doesn't matter, because the fact is, this is where I get my inspiration, my drive, my desire to create. If she's internal, honoring that side of myself can only help me flourish. If it's external, the same, plus the added benefit of having no angry Muse to deal with. Of course, with my perspective on the universe, it could be either. I'm not big on faith, so I can't say I actually believe she's an actual, external embodiment of creativity, but I'm not gonna say I necessarily disbelieve it either. It's a possibility. I'll admit to that and only that.

I do wear a Muse's star, actually. That's always been the symbol I've felt drawn to.

So, if all goes well today, I will do a little bit each on three projects: Trickster, the Doctor Who piece for the convention, and Will O' The Wisp. I still have no idea what to draw for the DW one. WOTW is still just in rough layout mode. Trickster will probably thus have the most work to show.

Okay, Muse, why can't you do things the easy way?

Does this look like a quick and easy painting?  Does it?  DOES IT?  I have a zillion other things to be doing too, you know.

Sigh.  Guess I'll just have to add it to the art queue.  (Full size might be NSFW,)

Sorry for my posty-ness today.  I have a tendency to want to ramble when the Muse is awake, and she's wide awake today for once!

I've dropped some color tone into the background of the faery piece, trying to get a feel for the overall color scheme.  Now I need to either a) work on WOTW, or b) work on the DW piece.  As the DW piece has a deadline, I may put my focus on that for a bit.  I just... honestly don't know what to do!  But, well, now that I think about it, I'm considering the famous kiss at Bad Wolf Bay... hrm.  How to make it unique and not just a copy of a photo....... hmmmm...

Gotta shift gears!!  Outta Faery, into... well... Norway.

EDIT:  Nope.  I am, in fact, going to do this one.  Angst.  Angst wins.  Seems I can't not draw angsty Doctor Who these days.
