still in the design process
A few weeks ago I went entirely nonverbal for 4 or 5ish hours while I was at a friend’s house. After I signed out “I’m okay” in ASL(she didn’t understand and that should’ve been my first clue), I tried to tell her “I love you” and, well … she immediately responded with “YEAH, NOVA! ROCK ON!” and I just lost it. It took a while to recover from that.
Seriously though, I’ve never appreciated talking more than I have now. You don’t know what you have until you’re incapable of speech and none of your friends understand sign language.
Eventually I got paper & a pen.

A friend asked me how I came up with Stormfly’s human design. This is about what was going through my head when I first made her.
testing out textures and paint stuff and i made his eyebrows too high on his forehead frick
If I had known that this was gonna turn into a full blown painting, I would’ve made it bigger.
The tree is huge – larger than the mansion where you last saw the man you came to visit. The branches overhang a cliff that drops down below a thin cloud layer which reveals a forested valley, and beyond that, plains, and even farther on the horizon, a set of mountains covered in mist. You circle around the massive trunk until you find the rope ladder and climb up, trying not to look down.
I may or may not have just marathoned the entirety of Korra season 2 with my brother.
Holy crap it actually got good.
