Crossdressers by Moonstruck-badger
I wasn't' originally going to upload this here since it's just a little sketch but I didn't realize I haven't uploaded anything here since August? D: Jeez time just flew by! I've been so busy with school that I just haven't had any time to work on my own stuff! Or at least I haven't had time to upload any of it online!

Anyway this was just a quick little doodle for one of the JohnRose weekly themes on tumblr~ The theme that week was crossdressing! Everyone's been so down about the ship sinking, but I came to terms with canon long ago. One of my biggest revelations was... Who gives a shit about canon? I'm a strong independent shipper who don't need no canon.

Psycho analysis (Describe why they act the way they do): Due to the severe mental and physical torture she suffered, she fears and hates pain for herself or others. When she sees/hears others in great pain or she herself is in great pain, her mind shuts down and she may even pass out or in the worst case scenario she panics and may attack those around her, be they friend or foe. She is often prone to flashbacks of her torture and escape, triggered by pain, spiders, enclosed spaces, or burns (such as hot water being spilled on her or grabbing something very hot) Her protective instincts come from her little brother being bullied a lot as a child and her mother’s poor health. Her father telling her that since she is the oldest child, she has the responsibility to protect others has also influenced this instinct. He also dissuaded her from showing if she was upset or hurting, saying that people wouldn't take her seriously or would look down on her because of her gender.

Nova Profile
EDIT (9/25/14) Another update, though not as big as the last one. Maybe I'll make it a tradition to come back and update this once a year. Also put up her new image~ One thing about her that I don't think really made it into the Profile is her extreme co-dependence on Will.

EDIT (6/22/13): This really badly needed an update X3 I've tweaked a lot of details since I first wrote this and I thought I should edit this in case anyone happens to stumble across it. Do any of my watchers really care about Nova all that much? Probably not, but she's a very important character to me. Sorry this is the only thing you guys have gotten from me recently :< I haven't had much motivation to draw digitally and I can't scan any of my pencil drawings online because my scanner is broken.

Ha ha, I thought it was about time I put up a profile for Nova, considering she's one of my two "main characters".

So yeah, NO MORE MULTIPULE PERSONALITY SYNDROM. I put a lot of thought in scrapping the idea, and I finally did it. Now Nova just suffers from war trauma : D

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Nova belongs to :iconmoonstruck-badger:
Nowhere Man by Moonstruck-badger
Nowhere Man
He's a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody

Doesn't have a point of view
Knows not where he's going to
Isn't he a bit like you and me?

Nowhere Man, please listen
You don't know what you're missing
Nowhere Man, the world is at your command!

He's as blind as he can be
Just sees what he wants to see
Nowhere Man can you see me at all?

A quick little thing I did in a few hours :3
I was listening to this song a few weeks ago and it really made me think of Equius! I kind of just made up his wing designs on the fly though based on a couple of other designs I had seen around, so apologizes for their roughness V_V

EDIT: Cleaned up his wings because they were really bothering me before, added the blue under his eyes, fiddled with the lineart in some places, and redid his left arm (still not happy with it but w/e I'm tired of working on it) Maybe I'll come back and shade him some other time.

  • Reading: Cloud Atlas
  • Watching: Video Games Awesome!!!

So apparently some people are posting up their DA stories today in honor of Deviantart's 14th birthday, so I figured why not! Seems like a nice idea (andalsoIhaven'tpostajournalentryinforeversorry)

Let's see, where to start... Well I joined a whole seven years ago (probably coming up on eight in a few months really) and I was in my first year of middle school (aka the third worst year of my life) and for some reason pretty much everyone in my grade was making deviantart accounts. Looking back on it I'm still not really sure why, since almost none of them were artists or had any interest in art all. I was hooked pretty quick and even after everyone else in seventh grade had lost interest I was still hanging around.

I didn't actually start posting art until like a year later when I actually figured out how to use a scanner though XD And for a long time I mostly posted pokemon, some RP wolf characters, and my neopet characters. Those neopet characters gradually shifted into the OCs I have today. I always think it's funny to go digging through the bowels of my gallery and find old art of Nova when I still had her age set at 17 for some reason X3 Thinking back though I also did a lot of art for the Warriors series and my silly fan made clans. And for a couple years that's all my account was; OCs and talking with the handful of friends I had.


I don't remember when exactly MLP crashed into my life, but I do recall that the seventh episode Dragonshy had just come out so I was in it pretty damn early! Part of what I liked about the show was that I could draw the characters, as silly as that sounds. My few attempts at humans were mediocre at best and thanks to neopets and pokemon most of what I had been drawing was either some kind of animalish thing or an anthro. I liked drawing ponies and I think I was pretty good at them! I also did a lot of work of :iconalexwarlorn: and his POV series, which garnered my art more attention then it had ever had.

MLP was a really big part of my high school experience and was a big comfort during my first tumultuous semester of college, but about halfway through my second year I did kind of find myself drifting away from it. It hasn't really inspired me artistically in quite awhile, though I still enjoy the show.

Homestuck, as probably all of you have noticed, has recently become my newest inspiration and it's really the first time I've ever really drawn human characters (thank you college drawing classes!) But who knows? Maybe I'll end up drifting away from that too in a few years, especially with the threat of the final act looming on the horizon. The very, very, very distant horizon.

And that's my story!
