Strawberry Avalanche by Falsetto-Waltz Strawberry Avalanche by Falsetto-Waltz
Title inspired by the awesomely whimsical sounds of Owl City. I mean, when you have lyrics about a blade of grass that slashes open a moonbeam, well you know you're listening to some seriously magical stuff.

No sarcasm in that. At all.

Anyway, this is a piece for:
:icontheshyshinobi:
I did it for his birthday. And apparently it's his favorite. He's the only person, at the moment, who has a print of my work that DOESN'T have a watermark on it. Legally. I even framed it all nice for him. >___< Gonna have to spoil him with more stuff, because he reacts so brilliantly. It's such a high, I swear!

Anyway, this piece is actually inspired by a conversation we had about milkshakes and my insisting that he's my Strawberry Prince. I dunno...you'd have had to have been there. [Though I'm sure you're thanking Jesus and pants that you weren't.]

Is it sad that my favorite part is the straw? I mean, seriously...I LOVE that straw!

Sketch Time: 5mins tops
Linework: There was none
Coloring/Editing: 40+ hrs. [It's the lack of lineart that made me get anal about the shape of this...] Strawberries are teh awesome!!!

I love Owl City and this fanart. Strawberry Avalanche has to be one of my favorite songs by him.

HAHAH! I'm glad you see it! No straw trumps THIS epic, in my humblest of opinions, of course. *shot*

Hahah, I'm glad that I could draw something that paid homage, in a sense, to a band with such a devout follower! ^__^

Thank you so much! :huggle:

Because there are people in the world who just do...? o__o I'm certain there's SOME ambiguous reason. Like I stepped on their baby toe while waiting in line with them, or some other nefarious deed that my short-sighted self never fathomed would come back to haunt me in the most horrendous of ways.

T___T


So how are you, buddy?

That sounds rather silly.

I'm okay. My brother and his wife had their second child earlier this month, so I'm an uncle for the second time. :D And how're you?

Hahaha, I'm a silly person, so it's not surprising.

Oh wow! That's awesome! Congratulations, my friend! I bet the baby is adorable! [After getting married I've been in Baby Mode, not that I demand one just yet, but because the possibility is now within my grasp, I'm going gaga over the mere notion of motherhood! Hahaha, I'm sad.]

I'm doing. Dealing with the ramifications of a knee injury I obtained while on the job. Got the run-around early on, and getting to suffer the lack of medical assistance I should have properly received during those more critical days. But that's usually how this business goes. Doctors freak out over 'workman's comp' like it's some form of the plague. >__> On the bright side my hubby is very patient with running me around all creation, and so very sweet when I start freaking out or stressing, so it's not been too much of a trial.

I'm working on several art pieces, one of which is making me want to chuck my computer through a wall, but I think today may be more promising in that department. \^___^/ Gotta get my butt in gear on that front, anyway, because I haven't 'officially' uploaded anything on here that's worth looking at in a while.

Hoping your day is awesome! :eager:

He's very adorable. I have photos of him I used in an id in my gallery. [Kids are cool, especially as they get older. I'd like to have kids someday, not now though. Maybe when I'm 30, 35 and more mature then I am right now. :D I'd probably adopt, though.]

Your husband sounds like a nice guy. :D Sorry about the knee injury and the ensuing insanity. ^^;

At least you're feeling creative, I've been rather lacking in inspiration lately. I can't seem to come up with anything good, with a couple of exceptions. So I've squandered my already wasted time with some good books.

Have an epic day yourself. :la:

The baby looks so adorable! Meeeh! Do lots of baby-cuddling for me! ^__^ *shot*

[Oh, I definitely agree, I thought I wanted to wait until I was much older, but after helping raise my brother and little sister and seeing my parents taking on that role when they were older, I think I'd rather be young and have the energy to keep up. >___<]

He is. He's a wonderful guy. It's all good, it happens.

Aaaaw, I've danced that dance many times, unfortunately. Like being thrust into a vacuum that sucks all whimsy and imagination out of a body and the only thing one's able to produce is absolute crud...kind of still crawling out of something like that. I just get these random spurts of 'almost-genius' and it helps me break out of it. Maybe that's what you need, a moment of sure geniosity that will get you back on the train of creative flow. Watching or reading something bizarre usually helps stimulate my creative nodes. Heh, time is never squandered when good reading is being done. :nod: Currently revisiting some works that I'd not been able to finish when I was in high school, myself. Almost done with Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas.


Can't really say the day was epic...unless you count traffic and crazy motorists among such terms. But it wasn't a horrid day, either.
