When did DeviantART get so fancy-looking? It's all so different!
I mean, granted, I haven't been on in a few weeks, but blimey, it's been altered! 
Ah, well.

My apologies for not being around for a little while - I've not had the incentive to go online for a little while. But, behold! I gave you art! Huzzah! There should be more up in the near future - I still have my list to work through. C: Short journal was short.

Because I hated the old one. With a passion.
I thought I'd go for something quirky and artsy. I much prefer this one - the art's actually somewhat good!

I told you I'd do more of these!

I did this one ages ago (literally, it was months ago) and I just never got round to uploading it. I was having a hard time choosing between the scanned version and the photo version (and I don't even know which one this is, it's been that long). 
I can't tell you what type of tea I used for his skin because I can't remember (I think it might have been Darjeeling?), but I like the colour it produced. Autocorrect made it go a little bit dodgy this time (I had to do some fiddling myself), so this is the best I could do. It's not too bad, though, right?

I can't apologise enough for the awful proportions in this. I know his arm is far, far too short, but it's very hard to do proper proportions when you don't do any sort of prior plan drawing and just slap some tea and watercolour on some paper (not trying to sound overly-defensive in the slightest). Ah, well. The proportions should be better with Bolin's (yes, I am planning to do at least one more of these).

I really like working in this style - there's a lot of freedom to it. Hopefully you guys like looking at what I produce. Expect more in the future!

Leave a comment letting me know what you guys think of this - I appreciate comments a lot.
(Sorry for the long description, by the way)
Our Boy Percy by Squiddy-chan
Our Boy Percy
Weird title is weird. ._.

It's everyone's favourite Demigod! 
This was a quick little thing I did a couple of weeks ago - I forgot to upload it until today. I'm quite pleased with it, if I do say so myself. C;

This one's not come out too badly (the scanner can be dodgy when it comes to pencil drawings. Or anything, come to think of it). Mind you, that's mostly down to auto-correct; it did OK things to this piece. x3

There'll be quite a bit more Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus fanart coming soon - I have a lot of plans. But for now you can look at Percy's happy face and Bob the Friendly Titan's slightly sad one (you can find that piece in my Fanart folder). C:

Like this piece? Leave a comment and let me know!

P.S. Faves are always appreciated. x3
Because I haven't done one of my three-pronged journals for a while, I thought I'd do one today.

Firstly, art news: There'll be some How to Train Your Dragon 2 fan art up in the next few days. I went to see it for the second time yesterday and it just fills me with so many feels I have to put to use in some way! The result is (and will be) fan art.
I love, love, love that film. The animation is just incredible! I'm pretty sure it's the single greatest animated film I've ever seen. The way they animate all the human characters is just spectacular! The little facial expressions, the gestures and the lip syncing make them seem so real! Hiccup and his family as well were done incredibly well, as was Astrid.
Also, I adore Hiccup's mother. She's such an awesome character! And Astrid and Hiccuuuuuppp~ They're so good togetheeeeerr~ They may just be my new OTP (but then again, maybe not. I tend not to go for the 'I will always love this one ship above all the others and it will never change ever' stuff as there's so many beautiful, wonderful ships in the world!).
Aanyway, if you haven't seen the film yet, I highly recommend it. It's stunning.
But, yeah. Expect fan art (and maybe some other stuff) soon.

Next topic of discussions: hair. I dyed mine! I am now ginger (according to the box it's 'Amber'-coloured :P). It's not a permanent one, but it'll last for about 8 weeks, I reckon. Does that put it in the 'permanent' category? I don't really know these things. I've only ever done a three-wash hair dying experiment before. xD;
I tried to dye it blonde a couple of weeks ago for a friend's party (we had to go dressed as Marvel, Tolkien or Harry Potter characters and I went as Eowyn), but it failed completely. All it did was take away the copper streaks from my hair. I didn't go any lighter at all. -_- After that I thought 'ginger would probably work better! Yeah! Let's go with that!' So I did.
So, yeah. I did it today, and it worked, so I am now a red-headed Squiddy (for about 8 weeks)! ^_^

Finally, job applications. Ugh, they're so hard. -_-
I'm trying to get a paid job for the first time (I know, I know) and I really haven't got a clue what I should be doing or saying for some of it. Thank goodness for parents, eh? Ah, well. I'll get it sorted in the end (though the end is sooner rather than later).

Finally, finally, here's that meme I promised:

Comment and I'll reply with this:

If you came to my door at 3am I would..
() Answer, then slam the door closed
() "Ugh...the door is....too far away"
() Ignore you
() "Get off my lawn"
() Answer, "Do you need something"
() Get up from bed, trips sliding across the floor and quickly open the door with a flirty smile
() Open the door quickly pulling you inside

If I saw you crying.....

() Hold you and wont let go
() "What's wrong?"
() Cry with you
() Smirk and laugh
() Try and cheer you up

If you confess liking me...

() Blush
() Laugh and walk off
() "I like you too!"
() Stand shocked
() "Um...can we stay friends?"

If we kissed....

() Kiss back
() Pull you closer
() grip your hair
() Push you away
() too shocked to move
() Blush

To me you're...

() Friend
() bae 
() stranger
() acquaintance
() My whole world
() I don't know

Would I date you...

() Maybe
() Yes
() no
() I don't even know
() What gender are you again XD

You should...

() Put this as your journal so I can comment
() Talk to me
() Love me

Now I'm done.

Hey. Guess what I just got. A PS3! And guess what else I got... SKYRIM.
Squiddy-chan Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2014
Enjoy the Skyrim dreams, my friend. You're going to have a lot of them... >:3

Something I immediately noticed is that it's really fucking hard to get into at first. I much prefer Saints Row IV. Also I'm making a comic for Science! that involves brownies. Do you call them something different? 
Squiddy-chan Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2014
Really? Hm... I've had about four different games, so I can't really say I have that problem. xD
Ah, I've never played that.
Nope. Brownies are brownies. :3

How accurate is this?
Also, seriously, a British Metalhead? Is that even a thing? Heavy metal sucks.
Squiddy-chan Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2013
I lost it at 'eggplant'. xDD
That question was a joke, right? Please say it was.

Also, yup, a British Metalhead. We're the best kind. ^_\\
I'm going to ignore that last comment.
