The Library Sphinx

Libraries, books, feminism, politics, art, science, roller derby and the occasional cute cat.

I started a new blog for roller derby reflections and philosophical ramblings

Sphinx for Girls Make Games! This time with process screenshots, including bonus dragon and cerberus exploration sketches!

The dragon was the first monster I designed, and I had a much clearer concept for the sphinx in comparison. Because the deadline came up so fast (I came on later than the rest of the art team), I didn’t get to tweak these as much as I usually might, but I think it worked out pretty well!

Still mega proud of Fire Skulls Cerberus. SHREDDING GUITAR SOLO!!!!

Gay Roller Skates Unicorn says: Spread the love - and show your respect for the artist!
More and more often I find my art reposted on other platforms without any reference to me or my site. I’m sure most of you don’t mean any harm. I wholeheartedly appreciate if you guys like my drawings - so much that you want to share them here on tumblr and beyond. However, please remember to properly credit me by linking to my tumblr/the original post.
Show your favorite artists that you love them and their work and credit them. You’re helping keep the interwebz full of awesome stuff (without the need to add ugly watermarks).
Thanks! ❤

I’ve been busy, but I managed to make some more progress on the western bird mnemonics poster. Here are the “answers” to that last image. Not pictured: a partly finished burrowing owl, olive-sided flycatcher, and more!

Just trotting through my old pictures and thought I’d do a comparison :) first one is from early 2012, and the other one is from this weekend.  I went on T in november 2012. The first picture, i’m all thin and unhappy as I thought I’d never get the treatment I needed (i started transition in 2009 lol) and in the most recent one, I’m happy and gorgeous and hairy. Sad thing is, looking back at the pictures of me, I remember being worried every day that I didn’t look like a boy, but I did. i did all along. because i am a boy and i look like me. i wish I’d realised.

i’m a bit sad that I’ve lost that cheekbone definition though haha

This is important. This is my awesome and glamorous pal, Lucian, and what he says is very important.

Why do computers use binary, anyway? The answer turns out to be fundamental to existence itself.
