"Being a hero doesn’t mean you’re invincible; it means you’re brave enough to stand up and do what’s needed."
- Piper McLean,The Mark of Athena
I like Piper’s hiking boots and, yes, I know the dagger is ceremonial, but I wanted the dagger and a semi-actiony pose so whatever.

Finished this WIP finally! This took me an absurdly long time.
Sketch dump! Mostly figure drawing practice. This website is a fabulous resource for artists who can’t make it to a true figure drawing session.
WIP of fanart for Fire by Kristin Cashore. Her hair is so fun!
"[T]he Mark of Athena blazed against the wall. Annabeth could swear it was glaring at her with those big fiery eyes, as if to say, What’s your problem? Hurry up!
She was really starting to hate that owl.”
— Rick Riordan, The Mark of Athena
"Percy, please don’t ever…" her voice broke in a sob. "Some things aren’t meant to be controlled. Please."

Give me hope in silence,
It’s easier, it’s kinder,
Tell me not of heartbreak,
It plagues my soul, it plagues my soul.
We will meet back on this road,
Nothing gained, truth be told,
But I’m not the enemy,
It isn’t me, the enemy.
— Mumfords & Sons “The Enemy”
