Monkey Gnome Cupid by ClearWillow
Monkey Gnome Cupid
Are you one of those that detests the red, white, and pink of February?
Do you believe the holiday was built around the candy companies?
Would you rather spend the day honoring a historic bloodbath instead of 'Be Mine' hearts?

This monkey gnome would.

While he hasn't done anything specific to piss off Cupid - who by the way goes barefoot - the Holiday Figures have decided that each wanted a chance to subject the furry grump to some festive "volunteer" work.

Had he thrown rock instead of paper, the King of Mardi Gras would have put him to work throwing beads with one of the krewe floats.
Queen of Hearts by ClearWillow
Queen of Hearts
This was another old piece I resurrected and finished earlier this month. Another one of those things that I started, got bored with and set aside for a rainy day, only to forget about. Found it in a folder of other incomplete sketches and decided to clean it up. I just wish I would have changed some of the details before I started coloring it.
Esther by ClearWillow
This was a gift for a tumblr friend of her OC, Esther.

Esther's a part of the Rise of the Guardians sphere, and her role is the Guardian of Pure Love. She has an interesting back story with past-romantic ties to Jack Frost. However, at the present he does not recognize her as anyone other than the workaholic subordinate of Cupid, and likes to rile her up by calling her 'Icchy', short for Icarus. Her uniform has Ancient Grecian nods, and it slightly resembles fem!Kid Icarus from a distance.

First house-closing piece of the year!

Projected closing date was two weeks from when I got the information and images to work with, but then it turned around that it was needed about three days from when the initial sketches were approved. :P It looks fine, but I can't help but feel I rushed to make sure it was ready. The one thing that isn't visible is the boathouse, which was omitted for time limits, but the water view is there.
Red Barn by ClearWillow
Red Barn
This was originally a piece I drew years ago in pencil, made copies of, and went over those in colored pencil. It had a neat effect,  but it also made it look thoroughly washed out. Scanning in the pencil art, I went over it digitally a little over a year ago, and I just found it again at the end of last year. ^^; I'm not a big fan of drawing buildings, but I am really pleased with how this one came out.
No point in saying "it's been a while" when you can't even remember the date of the last journal entry you posted. ;)

I do have a good excuse for my absence from DA for...months. I just completed my Associate's Degree this month, and had the commencement ceremony last Saturday. Things got crazy towards the end of April, and with 6 classes all having something due at the start of May, there wasn't much time to do anything else. I do have plans to transfer and go for that Bachelor's degree, but right now I'm catching up on everything else.

Of all the places I lurk, right now Tumblr is holding my attention, so if you want to follow me there: I'll still add stuff here, but it might take some time. I'm also on Redbubble and Zazzle; a google search of 'Clearwillow' ought to bring up the links. That's another thing I'm planning to get to, is compiling a list of all the places I can be found.

So that's what's been going on with me. Still here, just not as frequent as I once was, but with no intentions of going anywhere.
