more nico bc this song came on when i was sketching- [x]
i think about that shushing trick Nico did in The Son of Neptune a lot.
because both of them did, didn’t they? annabeth refused the hunters of artemis, and percy turned down the gods.
(i’m really strapped for time right now, but i’m trying to make a bunch of these sketchy valentines for this week.) <3
i knew this chapter was coming and it still ripped my heart out
also, the irony of this song playing while i sketched is not lost on me
"Who puts a dining table on the beach where innocent demigods can crash into it? Who does that?”

sorry it’s always so shippy but lovestruck Leo was begging to be drawn
Percy wanted to tell her it was okay, but of course it wasn’t. He couldn’t even feel his body anymore. His consciousness was like a small helium balloon, loosely tied to the top of his head.

He knew that soon it would either burst or the string would break, and his life would float away. - page 242, House of Hades
sketches of the scenes i’m working on currently woop
lucky me, the new year brought in a terrible bought of art block.
i know this is a lame peace offering, but it’s my way of saying that i’ll post some more substantial art soon (YES that means House of Hades stuff). in the meantime, Piper is putting the charms on me and my pencils.
i had Tyson for the front cover of the pjo fanzine! and i hAD A REALLY HARD TIME WITH THIS ONE.
dunno why, but i couldn’t for the life of me settle on a design i liked. i’m actually tired of drawing the poor guy now. i butchered so many attempts at him.
"…pretty nice guys, but you should always keep one hand on your wallet when they are around and never, under any circumstances, give them access to shaving cream." -Percy Jackson
one of my pages for the PJO zine! woooo! (still have to resize it and all that technical stuff, but whadduppppp Stoll babes)
it always feels like i lose so much when i transfer a pencil drawing to digital, but oh well, this was good practice.
