HM Contest by Taeryne HM Contest by Taeryne
Hot Mess Contest entry : [link]

When I saw this contest this is exactly what my brain did.

Eevee –popularity, need for self-assurance, easy ‘sellout’ route
Why should I put so much effort into anything else when Pokemon is the only thing people visit my gallery for? It’s just accepted that what’s already popular automatically gets more views. I do enjoy occasionally drawing pokemon, but it is just depressing that it’s the only thing in my gallery with more than 3 faves.

Stupid Fox – distraction
I love doing contests, memes and fanart. But really there are just so many out there I get lost just browsing DA for hours. Obviously this voice won this round. I chose SF here both as a tribute to the hosting artist and cause it fit in with the others.

Reru – confidence in your own path
Reru is the mascot of my own personal work as well as my test dummy for trying new art things with. Someday I would really like to do more with my own designs, like script a comic or create a game. Right now I’m still reluctant to share my designs since they are close to heart.

Kikitsu – guilt over childishness
I love D&D. I adore playing Taeryne as who I want to be but still a part of me. I spend days creating adventures and stories. I work at a game store and get paid to teach people to play this game! (and others too) Kikitsu is in fact my favorite thing to draw. But I feel so much guilt over ‘wasting’ so much time and effort over a game...

Renoir – my cat, reality/life
My cat as always was by my side while I worked on this. After spending any amount of time on the computer he always wants more attention. It is comforting to feel him purr. He is also sadly a very present reminder of real tasks that need attending. Cleaning, groceries and other chores don’t do themselves; nor do jobs that pay rent and his expensive medical bills.

All done in Photoshop, about 6 hours work.
