Good news by EmptyShadow Good news by EmptyShadow
I wanted to draw something before Monday starts again. Freshmen start their orientation tomorrow. Sigh, I feel old. The good old days when you felt like you started a new life. Good times, good times.

Then my sister said "if you need to think about what to draw, then don't draw" so I sat for a minute and drew a pathetic black swallow. Then I added crap to it. Cheesy but I like outlining things, and using many colors didn't do much bad.

I also applied (properly) some awesome texture by *SolStock [link] . It makes the drawing look like its painted.

p.s. I am starting to get lazy on DA again. I think it is the anxiety of school starting very soon. Messages piling up >:

p.s.s. Them cheeks!

Artwork *EmptyShadow (me)

I should send this to someone as a greeting.

It's so cool, I love the colours! Also, them cheeks! I love them. I feel old too, I'm starting 6th form, (we're now the second eldest in the year o.o it's awkward) I love the time when I was starting school, I felt 'big' hahaha

You'd think you will be bigger as you go up...but nope, you just feel older.

Hahah. So true. I try to think differently though. The new year 7's (they are 12-13) seem to get scarier over the years, I really don't want to see these ones. o.o

Good news isn't always good news in some cases.:iconpoker-faceplz:
That's the sort of vibe I get from the blood dripping from the swallow's wings.
Have a good time during your orientation, btw.:iconyaygilbirdplz:
