Welcome Back, Kermit by way2thedawn
Welcome Back, Kermit
Even though the commercials make me nervous about The Muppets reboot, I'm still pretty excited.  So here's America officially welcoming him back into our lives.  The world needs The Muppets again.  I just hope ABC doesn't destroy them.

Awkward by way2thedawn
I have very random urges sometimes. lol  This was initially just gonna be pointing out that Vegeta was too stubborn and proud to say it, but then I noticed the looks on Gouku's and Dumplin's faces.

I actually really liked this scene.  I get the feeling it was just Vegeta saying, "Yea, sorry I was such an ass.  I've gotten better at this."  Trunks was so excited too.  At some point I'll get the DLC and be able to play it myself.

KH Tarot: Six of Shields (lineart) by way2thedawn
KH Tarot: Six of Shields (lineart)
A figure of wealth a sophistication bestowing favors upon the lowly beggars.  Holding a scale to represent fairness and equality.  Or something along those lines.  This was maybe gonna be Scrooge, but he's better elsewhere, and I like the blue fairy too much to not put her in here.  Plus Pinocchio and Geppetto.  Come on.  It took me a while to figure out how I wanted to situate the scene.  I knew I wanted them on the bed, with the fairy watching over them, but that was about it.  Then I figured the part where Pinocchio's dead was more crucial in terms of the fairy's ultimate kindness.  With the shields raining down on them from her sleeves of dreams.  :shrug:

Shield Six: Shooting Star

Upright: Generosity, charity, giving, prosperity, sharing wealth

Reversed: Debt, selfishness, one-sided charity

Royal Story Time by way2thedawn
Royal Story Time
I've always wondered about the relationship Vegeta had with his father, before he died.  And, of course, like most other fans, wondered why he was still a prince when he should now be a king.  I just always figured it was cause the Saiyans were extinct, there was no need for it.  However, recently I found a vid that listed a bunch of "interesting things we never knew about Dragon Ball Z".  One of them said that Vegeta never took on the title of "King" out of respect for his father.  So, of course, the curiosity was sparked up again.  With the rekindled love for the Dragon Ball series, I started watching through the series again.  Currently on Namek, and Vegeta is goin on and on bout the Super Saiyans, so I wanted to make something cute.  King Vegeta telling his son about the Legendary Super Saiyan.  I'm sure the title wouldn't be in English, but unfortunately, I don't know the Saiyan alphabet.  

It's terrible for an artist to say, but it's been a while since I've just sat down and drawn. Of course, I've been drawing, but they've just been little side projects I've set for myself. It feels good to just sit down with my sketch book and just draw whatever I feel like, without any real rhyme, reason, or even duty to it. As yu can clearly see, somehow DBZ has brought this back out in me.  It's strange because I used to always have so many problems drawing in DBZ style, due to the simplicity of the designs.   Go Figure.

Puddin art dump by way2thedawn
Puddin art dump
Aside from my main Saiyan character, I did want to try out the other races.  I don't really like the Freeza race, and the Nameks are good, but again, not a fan of their move set.  (Haven't actually made a human.)  However, those Majins are awesome.  Her movements are so fluid and I love fighting with her, plus look at her... she's adorable.  So, Puddin is now my second permanent OC.  If I ever get around to really writing any of my DBZ fanfiction.  I'll probably explore a little more with the fluidity of the Majin body structure.  That mad face was fun.  Again, a little homage to Super Buu with that evil little grin.  Don't have much of her back story spelled out yet.  I just know that her and Fatalni and now totes besties.  She's also the tiniest Majin I could get, and just barely comes up to Broly's knee.  It's so damn cute.  Plus, her skin tone is difficult to match.  It's supposed to be a cream color, since I was trying to imitate pudding.  The similarity to natural skin tone is kind of a pain.  I might collect the dragon balls so I can play around with it more. :shrug:

I'll confess, Puddin was created in honor of Lord Beerus; with some influence from Dumplin.  At some point I am gonna have to do the Puddin joke with Beerus and Buu.

I'll most likely still draw my Namek and Freeza, cause they look awesome.  Just won't be much.

DBZ (c) Akira Toriyama
So, as much as my mom annoys me with her snide little comments, and mocking most of what we're watching, sometimes she really cracks me up.  I'm watching Advent Children, and mama waltzes in for the last half of it.  Upon seeing Cloud, she refuses to believe that he is a man.  Swears up and down that Cloud has to be a woman, because he's too pretty and is perfectly clean shaven.  Of course, she has no problem believing Cid and Barret are male.  Hell, she even believes that Vincent is a man (even before he spoke), but nope... there's no way.  Cloud has to be a woman.  After a while, I'm pretty sure she's just being a troll, but it's still amusing.  Then, she says something that keels me over with hysteria.  At the end of the movie, when Aeris is leaving with Zack my mom says, "Yea, I'm gonna go with him, because he's manlier."

She could not comprehend the beauty behind why I was laughing so hard, but was still amused at my reaction.  I always knew Cloud was just a fake, blonde Zack, and now I know that people who don't know anything about the series can see it too.
