Well, well, well! I made an art journal. I hate the word "blog" so this is a journal. JOURNAL. Good? Good.

My name is Alfhild. I'm a level 12 dwarf berserker with a +5 Great Axe--waaaaait... I told myself I wouldn't put down my D&D stats here...


My name is Shannon and I'm a superhero. And an artist. Animator! I'm not much of an illustrator, more like a character designer but I'm gonna work on that. I work with everything. More specifically Flash, pencil and paper, cut paper animated in the round, fiberglass, resin, thermoplastics, insulation foam, acrylic, etc. Basically a jack-of-all-trades, master of one... Hopefully. I make costumes and props as well but that's for another post.

I guess I made this because I'm just crawling out of an 8 month creative void and I want to share. Apparently I decided to grow a rare tumor at some point, and spent 6 months in nervous breakdown land after being told my voice would pretty much be reduced to a hoarse whisper because of it. I named said tumor Charles. He was removed in February and ended up being something completely different from what the surgeons thought. By some freak chance, it lit up on all the scans when it shouldn't have. Go figure.

So! I have my voice, and I have some sweet nerve damage, a freak eye, and egg beaters where my hands should be, but I am GOOD TO GO! Oh. Also? I photoshopped a top hat, monocle, and mustache on pictures of the tumor. I may post those...

But to start... Have some of the preliminary designs for an upcoming animation about an airship pilot named Ginny VanLande and her automaton Warrick. MORE ON THAT LATER.

I like ending posts with random quotes, aka FLAVOR TEXT (hi M:TG cards!) This art journal? NO EXCEPTION.

And that's why I don't like cricket.

These sketches look like something from Castle in the Sky by Miyazaki. The robot reminds me of them mostly. Looks good.
