'04-'14 Improvement by AlyaFenume
'04-'14 Improvement
So there was a 03-09 improvement meme a while back. Oh you know, at like the start of 2010, five years ago hahaha. 

I'm slowly eating away at the space on my computer so I opened up some of the files I no longer touch (which is basically my art folder from my old computer before I got this one in 2012) I saw the meme and decided to... add to it.
Nothing was ever on 2003 because I didn't have a scanner and I wasn't on any online drawing boards yet. So I just poofed that section away and started with 2004, and just added on at the bottom.

There was a moderate amount of colored work introduced in the end of 2013, but it didn't really start showing up lots until 2014. And  the last 6 months has mostly seen just colored works. It's also seen less art in general. You could argue that the colored takes more time, and that's why there's less. But the truth is my job picked up and I no longer had the freedom to draw at work. And I was so undeniably tired when I got home - that I wasn't spending any time drawing on those days, or even days I was off.

Also. I spent most of 2014 filling up a sketchbook with traditional works. I'm just now getting around to digitizing the one's I like.

Man, at this point I can't even remember what was going through my head. It had something to do with the fact that I managed to almost brainwash myself into not texting my best friend, like ever. And it wasn't until it got out of hand, and I started worrying about this distance between us, that I realized what I hadn't been doing (he's... not the best at reaching out. I've had the last 10 years knowing this.) And somewhere between reaching out, and the conversation... before or after that, I don't remember, this happened.

The Gold markings on his back are from a theoretical 'tattoo' I had created for him and a few other characters. It's not meant to be a tattoo or anything, it was just something that symbolizes him and I felt like putting it on there. Though, it is reacting to the red ribbons which are to signify my own character.
Emblazoned by AlyaFenume
This is the first time these two have come together on paper. There were sketches where I tried to get them on paper together before, but it never really worked. This one just... came together.

Lydio (and his counterpart Ash, who was created for much the same reason Kahl was), has certainly overshadowed and pushed Kahl to the side. Kahl still very much is a key person considering that Lydio is simply a friend. But, he's certainly taken up a spot as a main player and one of Alya's prominent boys she cares about.

which... is why they sort of have wings emblazoned/shadowed onto them. 
I think I originally intended it to almost be a brand. But it's just really showing who they're connected to. Who cares about them xD
Intimidation by AlyaFenume
The best way I've described this yet is that I'm trying to deal with something like an adult - but everything else keeps getting in the way and my art brain doesn't exactly know how to process what all I'm feeling/doing. And it comes out as Alya being... herself. But she's being intimidating. She's being scary. She's relishing in the fact that (so far) Lydio can't best her. And he's made the mistake of being afraid of her. And where as she wouldn't actually harm a hair on his head - she's having fun fronting and showing off. Yeah it comes off as handsy, possessive and freaking weird. But yeah well. 
that is something my character and I do have in common xD

Fun stuff. haha.
Punishing Roses by AlyaFenume
Punishing Roses
During this image - Meld - Valom gained the theme or roses around his little halo thing as a sort of "pretty to look at, painful to control" sort of deal.

In this case it's more of the possible 'traditional' idea that you're hurt by a rose held too tightly. It's mostly just fun. I spent a good long time doodling her hair tying into knots around the arch and things like that.  There's always a little bit more of a meaning that I usually don't share. It's just kind of warring emotions and missing people.

The blue rose is for Valom as it's in his color, and also more fully bloomed as I've known him forever.
The red rose is for Lydio, in his color, but also more closed since that friendship is fairly new still.

Drawing since i was a kid, love it. I do traditional and digital as a hobby. I also pick up any craft/hobby/skill I can do with my hands and enjoy that as well.
