More werewolf story stuff. Still trying to figure my main girl out. You know, the important details. Like a NAME. Her last name is Moore, I know that much.
She’s too optimistic for her own good. Trusting to a point that gets her into trouble. A lot. Always sees the best in people. Even when she really should be wary of their flaws. She just wants to make everyone happy. She briefly joins the school’s soccer team but promptly leaves it. It’s not what she wants to do, and she can’t handle the competitive nature of the players.
Before being bitten, she never really had an anger problem. She’d get frustrated and irritated, but never angry. But thanks to the nature of being a werewolf, she gets to battle THAT!
All werewolves, if they’re willing to put in a little effort, can eventually turn into a full wolf. But it takes a few years. They’re given the full set of tools up front, they just have to figure out how to USE them. So fledgling wolves only have the basics for survival. Teeth, claws, eyes, thick fur on neck, shoulders and extremities. Cute fuzzy wolf ears. They can transform at any time. But they have the most trouble on the 3 darkest days of the moon (when they’re the most human). And they’re the most out of control (the most wolf) on the 3 brightest days. Though they can heal faster after they’re bitten, they will always carry a scar of the initial attack.
Slowly working out the rest of the details. But that’s the stuff I’m certain about!
So I’ve been quietly and slowly working on my own werewolf story for a few weeks. Currently dubbed “lesbian teenaged werewolves” for lack of a title.
Things are starting to take form. It’s a novel project, so I probably won’t be drawing these guys terribly often, but I like to have a solid idea of what they look like before writing them.
I’m still in the super early stages, so I still have to figure out what I’m doing with this story. The scruffy jerk right now is little more than “What if someone like Crawford were a handsome werewolf?” in personality. Just to give you a hit of what I mean by “tragic back story.”
Also, welcome to my awful handwriting.
Who Should I Draw Next?
So I’ve been doing these portrait things, right? And I asked yesterday, but I wanted to open it up again. To add to my inspiration list for my morning warmups. I already have a few things planned. Peter Hale is being sketched. Mama McCall. Tommy Merlyn. Something based off this amazing photo of bext-k. But I’m open to suggestions! The more requests I get for a person or character, the higher I’ll make the priority!
This is the stuff I mean:
And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all
And I will stumble and fall
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl

Jackson and Lydia. The couple that will forever break my heart.
Crawford warm up sketches end up looking pretty cool.
Trapped in Shadow — Stiles and the Nogitsune
A nightmare even in the best of circumstances. Trapped inside his own head. While his friends face an unstoppable enemy who wears his face.
This had started a very simple concept, that just sort of grew out of my control after the Echo House episode. I will forever be in awe of Dylan O’Brien’s skill when he goes all creepy.

I was recently introduced to notmusa's beautiful art and was inspired! It started as a sketch just to get back into my OCs. It started as a practice to get back to them, so I can draw Crawford and Ian getting drunk together or something. BUT for now you get Crawford and Dane.
Dane is sometimes a were-coyote. When I feel like it.
Also an attempt to loosen up and not worry about making things perfect.
Nathan Drake - Yet another high-contrast portrait thing.
I may be addicted to making these. I also may have found a wonderful way to add color in trying to get his scarf to look right! Gonna have to try out that technique on another portrait.
A couple months ago (geeze, probably like September or October? I don’t remember anymore) I offered someone I greatly admire a drawing of anything he wanted. Because shoving art at people is pretty much the only way I know how to communicate with people who inspire me (whether they’re artists, writers, actors, anything). He gave me a few characters, and this is what I went with!
I adore Sin’s character on Arrow, and Bex Taylor-Klaus is beyond adorable. The show needs more of her.
And I feel something so wrong
By doing the right thing
I couldn't lie, couldn't lie, couldn't lie
Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly
Lately I been, I been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I been, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars

I’ve been feeling nostalgic for a season 2 of Teen Wolf. It’s my favorite season. Focused on my favorite character, and it had quite possibly my favorite villain.
