Hello there! 

So as it turns out, I am ridiculously desperate for money! As such, I am likely going to start doing commissions for anime/manga style digital works. 
I've still got a bit of research to do and details to iron out before I do, but expect them to be available soon. 

Thanks!
Her Real Smile by xTacitusx
Her Real Smile
One summer I finally convinced her to take a break from work and come with me to my parents' property in Yosemite. I knew of a place that had been my family's best kept secret for generations: an actual natural spring--miles away from any other human being. 

It was just the two of us. Utterly alone. 

And just as I suspected, it was that ineffable privacy that finally tore down the walls she built around herself. 

Not many people knew her--the REAL her. She had spent years drowning herself in secrecy, manipulation, and facades so that other people would really never know who she truly was. She always kept people guessing. Even me. But I think that day I got through to her. When she smiled at me--when she gave me that REAL smile I knew. 

She had decided to show her true self to me. 

And she was undoubtedly the most beautiful being to walk this earth. I was overwhelmed; smothered in her radiance, and dumbstruck as to why. Why had she decided to come out to me? What was it about me that she felt that she could do this? 

She ran and leapt into the water--all grace and poise. It had always surprised me how athletic she was. When she touched down in the crystal clear water, she threw herself into my arms and kissed me eagerly--passionately, and she smiled again. She didn't say anything. She didn't need to. And suddenly I had the answer to all my questions. 

She let her guard down that day because she trusted me--because she loved me. She actually loved me back! HER! The girl who had never once displayed true sincerity to anyone had chosen me to be her confidant and her lover. And she was happy, truly happy to do it. 

I counted myself to be the luckiest girl in the world just then.

This took me quite a while. I've been trying to stretch my artistic boundaries a little bit and decided to do a whole bunch of difficult shit at once. Drawing backgrounds, water, and dynamic poses are all things that I am historically bad at doing. I think I did okay, but if there are any pros out there, I'd appreciate some critique.

Eyes Like Fire and Ice
I was experimenting with some new shading methods and techniques and came up with this. As a proof of concept I think it works but I was totally half-assing almost all the coloring. Woo.

So here's a pic of my OC, Senna. After working hard at her job of keeping her friends from getting shot while sitting in a trees for 6 hours, Senna enters her patented zero-bullshit mode, and has been known to go from 0 - 100 on the fucks-given scale in an instant.

White. Shine Bright.
I revived an old sketch and made this. I've been looking for reasons to start drawing again, and I've always enjoyed drawing the girls from RWBY. But...HOLY BALLS Weiss' outfit is by far the most difficult to draw. That freaking lace on her skirt took me freaking forever to draw. T-T

Still fun though. And glowy.

A small collection of stuff I've been working on in my hiatus.
I might turn some of these into full fledged works--the RWBY ones probably. I made both shortly after the news about Monty Oum came through.
The rest is just some randomness.
