solitary-function: Steampunk Adventure Time!
My second entry for Month of Love! This week’s theme was favorite love story and I gotta say, it was too hard to pick just one out of the twenty some-odd that I came up with.
I always come back to the knight/noble lady trope because I’m cheesy and it’s the best. It’s also a Valentine’s Day image for m’lady (hah) and I because I call her that so often.
Ink and digital.
Lovely, heroic lady knights romancing queer princesses and sharing sweet and wonderful moments like this with them are literally one of my favourite things ever okay
Something about it just DOES things to me, the though of a queer lady knight falling for her princess and the two of them being super adorable lovers
Lesbian knights riding up on their noble steeds, romancing all the queer princesses
an artist is stranded on a desert island alone and decides to pass the time by drawing. less that a minute after they take out a sketchbook, one lone person washes up on the island and desperately says “oh my god you can draw can you draw me”
Finally got Rarity done! u w u’ I scrapped my original bust of her and went with a sketched full body instead… I had originally wanted her to be asian, but since everyone wanted more black human mlp characters I decided to make her mixed… xD /cop out
as much as I wanted her to at least kind of look asian I don’t think it really worked but oh well

The Avoiding Same Face Tutorial!
I found the main reason I use to Same Face really bad, was because I was so terrified of making a person who was not perfect. Anime same faces a lot, comics even tend to same face, and in movies, we tend to get only a few varying types of “Pretty People” that we’re suppose to aspire to. So it’s really terrifying to take a step out of one’s comfort zone and draw those things that the people surrounding us tells us aren’t pretty.
In real life, people are so varying and unique. I found the more I started drawing the things that I was afraid to draw before for fear of ugliness, the less and less I found those things ugly, and the more I just found everyone beautiful.
Of course, not everybody is going to agree with me here. But if you want to stop Same Facing, you should push the boundary of what’s beautiful.
Because really, it’s the differences in us that make us all gorgeous.
Vintage Valentine c. 1960s
Is this an interracial lesbian mermaid couple? Because I’m going to interpret it that way regardless
