A Peridot is a gemstone of lightness and beauty used by the spiritual and clear-minded people. Peridot refers to the birthstone for August and the Zodiac stone for the constellation Libra. Peridot is associated with the values of fame, dignity, protection, and success.
"If I Were a Crystal Gem" part one out of who-knows-how-many… I’d defs have my gems on my wrists and my weapon would be a set of crystal throwing knives. For a while, I considered a bow and arrow, but throwing knives are just as graceful in a fight. I wanted to keep the message and meaning of the gem relevant. But, Peridot is also my birthstone, so I’m a little biased. Otherwise, I would be Opal, indefinitely. You can bet this design is going to change before I cosplay this original character at AnimeIowa this next year, haha.
The Depressive’s Self Portrait
A piece for my digital print portfolio for school. I tried doing a canvas piece similar, but it didn’t quite result in the same thing’ — not to say it was any better or worse, but … just different. It’s a self-portrait, but I’m not sure how accurate it is… but, whatever.
W hen you're cool like me,
opinions don't matter.
For my beautiful, amazing friend, Jen, who loves and adores Garnet to pieces! Her blog is really amazing and she’s also a pretty awesome teenage lady person (howdoIwordthiswithoutsoundingstupid?). Anyways, have a Garnet warm up because I literally have’t used SAI or my tablet since October sooo… yeah, it turned out looking half-assed compared to the stuff I’m usually able to do (might redraw and edit for later or re-post)…
SO AMPED UP I'M GONNA KILL SOMEBODY
Based off this post. Thought it suited her to a tee. This one’s from my sketchbook dated back a couple days ago, just thought I’d edit it a little.

Oh and sorry if you can’t read the first one too well (really old one), but you get the idea!
