Hm.  It was one of these slow burns that ends in a big "DO IT"

Between the husband talking about all the piercings he once wanted as a high school student, my ears getting done, and other ideas wedging into my brain... Well.
Kahl is the only other character with piercings. Because of that, he's really the only one I draw with jewelry at all. And I've tried to do necklaces or bracelets for others but just... nah. Never feels right. Which makes sense, considering the closest item to 'bracelet' that I wore every day was either dog collars wrapped around my arms - or a watch.

But yeah. Slow burn ended up with "I want to pierce my leading lady" And so I did! I always thought a lip ring would be kind of cool... except for I'd rip it out on accident. Or considering my job... or just frustration. Or fiddling. Or who knows what I'd do in my sleep. 
I apparently have this thing about going a year (or more?) without updating my journals...

To go into detail... Dev became much like sharing images on Facebook. At the same time, facebook became like the old Dev. What do I mean? Well...

I lurk a lot. So I watch and even favorite images more than I comment. I've justified it to myself because the one's that always catch my eye, have comments on them. Maybe hundreds of them. Hundreds of favorites. I'm just another person going 'Cool image, dude', and so I figure I can just save us both the hassle and move on.
But, for me personally....

I don't have hundreds of favs or comments. And part of that, no doubt, is because I'm not really part of the community in the sense of... chatting with people. I post images and I would talk to people in comments. But for the most part I don't converse with people. I'm not really part of any groups or anything. So the lack of commentary is kind of saddening. And it pushed me further away (what's the point in checking all the time, or always having dev open when there's no new comments, favs, or anything?) Which, of course, then stretches the time in my responses to anyone who does comment and it circles around and around and around.

A bit on why it's like FB though now...
I used to only post the very best on Facebook for those friends to see. While everything was posted here. As things have changed here...
Now usually only 'the very best' gets put up here, while 'everything' winds up facebook.

No big deal really. I obviously still bother to come and update this. Art still pops up. I just...don't spend too much time here. I get on to post something new and in that visit make sure to check any new posts from those I follow, and any other message center items and then poof. I'm gone again until I update again.

Deal by AlyaFenume
The idea of these two is... non-ending really. But the ties and their stance and everything kind of came from a song (I don't remember which at this point). The idea actually goes further, with this thing of her like moving in a circle, and at different stages of where she is in this cirlce she's moving in - she has interactions with the other people. 
So like her and Kahl are like wrapped up in each other. Her and Dreogan are smoochin, and her and lydio have like no contact at all (she's just got her hand over his head because he's much shorter than her)
They're all actually doodled out. I just never seem to finish images that have these people in an ongoing like series. Ah well.

Used different brush settings to ink AND color this one. So it came out kind of paintery. Kind of cool :)
Share a Dance by AlyaFenume
Share a Dance

It all started when I just randomly drew a picture that kind of looked like someone dancing and it kind of became Alya, and Kahl KIND OF snuck into it. It spurred on this desire to draw my characters dancing together. And the way/type of dance kind of summed up who they were and all this. Which is how Alya/Kahl became so intimate, how Lydio/Alya aren't even like touching each other, and Valom/Alya are some sort of weird medium.

I've been struggling along with it though. The colors wern't right. The clothes wern't right. The weird little spirals of colors were wrong, or not enough of them. Or my idea for them didn't actually look good and I was having a hard time. 

I've been having a tough time at work as well so I finally just.. decided that I needed to sit down with it. And... I'm quite pleased with it :)

Alya/Valom Fusion by AlyaFenume
Alya/Valom Fusion
It isn't entirely Steven Universe's influence that caused that. Someone else took the idea and used two characters and did a fusion of them. I... just suddenly got floored by the idea that Alya and Valom are red/blue just like one of the main SU characters (and also the characters someone else did a fusion of)

It was fun xD
