A small experiment for keeping calm and de-stressing. Short playlists are created around a theme or prompt (or current state of mind) and sketches are drawn to the playlist, all 800x800px, drawn in Manga Studio 5. As a starting point, all sketches have to include a grey hoodie.
Sketch #1 (Night Walk): Blur - Coffee And TV, Placebo - Meds, Acen - Trip II The Moon (part 2), Klippa - Dark Niagara Nights, Aero Chord - Surface, Sub Focus - Coming Closer, Alena - Turn It Around

Some unfortunate gods for an unfortunate planet. Left-right:
The glorified calculator. Demands a 10% cut of his follower’s earnings. His blessing grants an individual great strength, however their form gradually becomes less complex until they are literally a gathering of geometric shapes, eventually becoming a single spatial point. This can be reversed by the individual sacrificing all their money. It is rumoured that he collects money from his followers as he fears that if he has nothing to count, he will cease to exist.
The overbearing mother. Protective of her followers to the point of encouraging extreme violence toward any who dare offend her family. Followers have a strict dress code, strict meal times and strict rest times. They are also notorious gossips; anything they don’t know, isn't worth knowing. If they can prove themselves trustworthy, she is happy to take in followers that also follow other gods. Her blessing allows an individual to become… nothing - and everything - a cloud of thoughts and ideas that can act as a spiritual guardian for other followers.
The ‘dreamer’. The dreamer is not satisfied with the everyday. The dreamer wants to explore space and time and beyond; they are bored of the mundane planet they call home. The dreamer links the conscious mind of all his followers, allowing them to put across thoughts and ideas with lightning speed. Because of this, parties believing in opposing ideas start ‘thought wars’, dragging the entire following into a debate over the topic which could last for days. The dreamer’s blessing grants an individual the answer to one question only. Certain questions are forbidden after one such incident where someone asked about the origin of [REDACTED]; the following sensory overload immediately disconnecting the dreamer’s mental network.
The zealous lovers. Usually followed by pairs of star-crossed individuals, fueled by their passion for each other. Pairs will synchronise everything they do, right down to breathing, blinking and moving, walking in tandem as they wake and entering the same dream as they sleep.Their blessing allows a pair to become one fused individual, displaying traits from both. If a pair argues they are seen as incompatible, and the lovers would abandon them. They would need to separate to seek out other partners or follow another god.
Copied from my tumblr post about them, I never realised I didn't submit them here. Whoops! Apologies for the terrible scans again.
Hello there, the name's Tasha. I'm a 21-year old Bangor University student who draws in her free time. I think that about sums it up nicely.|
I like to use a variety of artistic media including but not limited to: biro, acrylic, watercolour, a bottle of black ink and a dip pen, epoxy clay, graphic design software and on occasion a data corruptor, just to make things look all that much more trippy.
If I do not respond to a comment or note for a few days, don't worry, I probably don't feel quite myself. Responses will happen when I'm not throwing myself into a panic about how many times I say a word or something.
