Zombie AU! Woo!
I don’t really have any fics myself, but there are some out there. I’ve mostly read Mina’s stuff (and Mina is pretty much queen of everything) so you should check all that zombie AU goodness out.
I’m sure there are other really great ones too.
line art or coloring?
lineart! it’s so difficult but so fun (and rewarding when it works out)
who/what inspires you?
in addition to the others (museums anything 16th-18th C and the lotr soundtrack) I’ll add good books
who/what inspires you?
did this one, but I’ll add that the original score from lord of the rings is always inspiring
favorite thing to draw?
a short list in no particular order because picking one thing is impossible: hair, feet, drapey clothing
show a thing you last drew, no matter how small or a “doodle” it is:
started a new painting! does this count?
lineart or coloring?
line art! I’ve been working on it a lot lately and it’s really difficult but super fun.
take a picture of your work space
(and I don’t normally have paint sitting there but my easel is currently right behind my chair)
any weird artist behavior you admit doing?
well I don’t know how weird it is… I mean a lot people do the make-the-facial-expression-you’re-drawing thing. and I talk to my drawings, but I’m not sure how weird that is either.
draw a pic of yourself like how you look just now:
I like my socks
who/what inspires you?
um, too many things. lately I’ve been spending a lot of time in museums and anything 16th C - 18th C is phenomenal.
draw a same pic with your dominant and non-dominant hand
do you have any OCs
yep I do. they’re part of a big personal project I’m working on and I’m super fond of them.
do you listen to music when you draw? favorites?
always. recently I’ve been listening to the Chutes Too Narrow album pretty much on repeat.
Jason: He feels guilty about it, but he can’t deny that Camp Jupiter doesn’t quite feel like home anymore (and that Camp Half-Blood does). He thinks about going back to California, but there’s always a reason not to make the move just yet. The Hunters are visiting camp and how often does he get to see his sister? Or the whole Aphrodite cabin’s got the flu and he’s by far the quickest on covert trips for real Coke and Sally’s homemade chicken soup. Eventually all the reasons to stay stop sounding like excuses and he tells Mr. D that if he’s going to be living there then that creepy statue of his dad in Cabin One has got to go.
Leo: He takes a long time to unpack. He can’t shake the feeling that he’ll have to make a quick getaway in the middle of the night or that Rachel will spout a new and horrible prophecy and he’ll be off on another quest. Not that he’d volunteer or anything, but he’s never had the best run of luck. But the repairs to the Argo II only take so long and eventually he runs out of excuses for having fallen asleep in Bunker 9. It’s not until the summer ends and he has to make the choice between officially signing on as a year-rounder or becoming harpy-chow that Leo lets himself think he might like to stay in once place for a while.
Piper: It’s not until she sees her dad again that Piper realizes how much she’s grown up in the last year. It’s freezing and they’re the only two people on the beach so when the tinny ring of a cellphone breaks the silence there’s no question who it belongs to. But when her dad gets that look on his face - that I’m so sorry but I have to take this look - she doesn’t shrug it off, she doesn’t feel her heart sink into her knees - she snatches the phone from his hand and chucks it into the water and the blank shock of her father’s expression is satisfying. It’s time she told him everything, and he’s going to sit there and listen whether he likes it or not.
Hazel: There are days she sets aside for just the two of them because even after everything that happened in Europe there are parts of her that only Nico understands. They’re simple days - afternoons at the park swapping frozen yogurt or rainy days spent at the movies eating so much popcorn she think’s she’ll throw up. Nico never stays in once place long, but every time she sees him he looks a little happier, a little healthier, and she likes to think she’s helped with that.
Frank: He is forever surprised that anyone thinks him a hero but there’s no denying the way the other Romans look at him. He’s even more surprised that he enjoys it, enjoys being Praetor, being a leader, being looked-up to. But what Frank enjoys most of all about being back at Camp Jupiter is that he really feels like he belongs now. The doubt and uncertainty are long gone and he wakes up every morning feeling comfortable in his own skin and decides that’s the best feeling in the whole world.
Annabeth: They’ve been back two weeks when another bunk shows up in the Athena cabin. Annabeth can’t define the twisting sensation in her chest as she watches the new girl unpack the few belongings she’s brought, but she knows it’s the same feeling that makes her pack her own things the next day and catch a ride with Argus into the city. It was the same feeling she’d had years ago when an obnoxious little son of Poseidon showed up and she’d jumped at the chance to go on her first quest. The real world is where the monsters are. That’s where you learn whether you’re any good or not. She’s not a camper anymore, not really, and it’s time to find out whether she’s any good at being anything else.
Percy: Paul answers the knock on the door and Percy feels like he’s been sucker punched right in he gut. He doesn’t know how long they stand there staring or who moves first and the only thing he can think as Paul hugs him is that he’s taller than his step-father now. And then his mother is there and Paul’s arms are exchanged for hers and if he’s felt bitter and angry and hurt for too long now it all melts away the moment she steps back and smiles up at him. He made it back just like he promised, for good this time.
