ACK! They've changed things again... I'm sure I'll get used to it, eventually. (And then they'll change things dramatically again and we'll start all over...again)

I am under challenge to start, FINISH and post artwork of ...meatier meaning. Things that reflect me. Things I deal with, have dealt with, adamantly stand for or adamantly stand against. These pieces WILL BE UNCOMFORTABLE. They are not pleasant. They are not pretty. They are not glories of color and character. They are dirty and hard and often painful enough that I have to take a tranquilizer to actually complete them, never mind posting them. If You don't like or can't handle art that does more than look pretty, do my prescription a favor, don't click the images. No getting butthurt about it not being comfortable and pretty, please, I am going WAY out of my comfort zone by sharing these, by developing them beyond a rough 5 minute sketch I leave in a sketchbook and never show anyone in the first place. Comments about "i don't like this new trend of depressing subject matter. go back to the pretty stuff" doesn't help and outright derision is best kept behind your teeth on these.

Further, "I like it. [and nothing else said]" is also not an appropriate response for these. These, unlike the rest of the work I post, actually MEAN something to me, and often it's either something I dredged up from the dark, dank, mildewy corners of my soul I usually assume no one wants to know about, or it's something I've seen happen that PISSES ME OFF. In either case, comments require full sentences, and preferably several of them. You are not required to like them. I probably don't either. Some of them may bear trigger material, please, take the necessary precautions if you are prone to triggers (and I mean more by that then "I get sad for five minutes") on any of the following themes: Anxiety, abuse, self mutilation, suicide, prejudicial cruelty, depression, body image issues, eating disorders, violent and/
or sexual crimes. Any of these may weigh in on any of the upcoming series of i'd-rather-be-doing-pretty-but-meaningless-because-it's-more-comfortable paintings. You Are Warned. (and it's not my fault if you didn't read all the way through and then click and find something you don't like.)
Paranoia: Sshhhhh... by ValkyriePhoenix
Paranoia: Sshhhhh...
I start a lot of art that I never finish. Most of the ones I don't finish tend to be the dark ones that speak to things I deal with regularly. I was challenged to start and actually finish and post one such. I went with as simple as I could get in order to meet the challenge. Meet Anxiety. Mine gets right up next to Paranoia and snuggles in close. Sometimes I physically cannot talk because of it.  (he has really long, sharp  teeth that you can't see, but you'll certainly feel them...)

China Von Krieg by ValkyriePhoenix
China Von Krieg
Another one of my RP characters, painted because of boredom.

This is China. The back story she started with is no where near as interesting as what happened afterwards. She was originally designed to be a support character and as NOT O.P. as possible. My DM decided to do a funny and had her run into a succubus...and it all went downhill from there. The succubus was most annoyed that she could prank the other members of the party, but that my little steam powered robot bard who was nearly as anatomically correct as a barbie failed to be influenced by her. So she temporarily turned her into an elf so that she could suffer the "fun curses" too! ...The dice rolls that followed made everybody groan and facepalm. I chronicle for you here the results of those dice rolls. I Failed EVERY. Single. Save. ...and crit the rest. Will save against curse to not throw self at random person a: Fail. Seduction check on random person a: Crit. (repeat twice) Get fed up with this nonsense and summon randomly from spellbook something to find the bint wot did this: Crit, Incubus shows up and gleefully runs off to play fetch. Only way to get rid of the curse winds up being "Give birth to an infernal. Convenient, since you have an Incubus right there! BYENOW!" *poof* Bitch. Crit the rolls necessary for that. Fail Every will save against random food cravings. Go on a necessary dungeon run. With a Vampire. And a werewolf. Who slightly hate each other. And a couple of humans and other fleshy types, but they count less. Fleshy thing screws up and the Vampire, Raven, and the Werewolf, Tordek, wind up dying and the others just ditch out, so I fix em up....and then fail a will save against the curse. And the dice say "you can't make up your mind whose bones to jump". So I have to roll a seduction check on BOTH. I crit BOTH. and then groan in horror as we all realize that vampirism and lycanthropy are both treated as STDs in DnD.... (except that one prevents contraction of the other unless they enter the system at.the.same.time. ...which they just did). I ANTI-CRIT my fort save rolls.  Oh, and because vampirism and lycanthropy are magical in nature the diseases stick, even when I change back into a robot (post babyvampirewerewolfinfernal), they convert themselves to computer viruses. Fast forward a decade or so in game, and China is now a fairly ridiculous number of levels higher Bard/Necromancer/Fighter, Matriarch of 3 entirely new clans: Robot!Vampire/Werewolves, Fleshy!Vampire/Werewolves, and InfernalVampireWerewolves. .... and apparently on the fasttrack to becoming a deity.


... I WANTED TO BE UNDERPOWERED, DAMMIT! Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh. We're still trying to do the math on getting her sheet up to date....

since my last entry.
Most of that time has been spent jumping through one governmental hoop after another. Some of it has been spent getting certified crazy. We have 'discovered'* that my depression is largely affected by my anxiety, rather than the other way around, that I have ADD which contributes to the anxiety (there was a loud chorus of "Well, DUH" when I reported that news from my therapist to my household), that I have fairly severe body image ISSUES, that I'm actually a fair bit paranoid, and am much too busy looking/waiting for everyone to "act" on the hatred of me they MUST have to actually comprehend compliments, and that maybe it's a good idea to let me keep a sketchbook and pencil in my hands. I have also spent most of that time away from my computer, with no scanner and little time with my camera, but filling up one sketchbook after another, mostly with random doodles I will probably never post. When not keeping the county happy and/or going crazy, I've been running to and fro trying to get this "little" problem with my knee figured out and fixed. It keeps spontaneously deciding it doesn't want to carry me anymore, mostly it doesn't hurt, it just goes and I find myself kneeling for no reason. When it does hurt no amount of naproxen works, sometimes vicodin doesn't either. I have trammadol, but it mostly only works for the "moderate" ranges of my knee's pain.

I spent three months being REALLY crazy and worked the So. Cal. Renaissance Faire, including the month of prep workshops, on top of 35 hours a week keeping the county happy and having a bum knee. I had a blast. Even when I was carrying a 12 foot pole with a 6 foot flag on it across all 22 acres 5 times a day in parades. In triple digit weather. With crippling social anxiety making it difficult to talk at all sometimes. I still had fun, and my guild is awesome.

I'm finally back at my computer and painting again. I hope to actually finish the projects sitting on my hard drive in various states of nowhere-near-complete in addition to the new pieces. (Pfft! Yeah right, like THAT'S going to happen. I didn't finish because I lost attention span on them, like I'm TOTALLY going to be able to pay attention to them again enough to finish them now. :eyeroll: )

Oh, right! I also got engaged.


*"We" being "my therapist and facilitators". I already knew 99.3% of it.

I am accepting commissions, traditional media, digital media, or beadwork jewelry. I charge $10/hour (prices may change depending on contract details) plus material fees where applicable, no minimum charge. Send me a Note to begin.
