Kaldra sketch by michaleon
Kaldra sketch
I drew this about a week ago, but I'm horrible about posting my work. So this is a thing that happens to be a thing. Yeah.
...
I like to THINK I'm improving...

So, :iconmaryfraser: was commissioned by :iconneutralz1: to draw my character Kaldra.

Like, oh my god, I just...
I think I may have died...
Seriously...
Kaldra is a character of mine that I've been drawing since I was really little. Like, 5 or 6. Back when I was diagnosed Autistic, one of the few ways I could center myself when I was having trouble was by drawing, and Kaldra was one of the recurring characters. Back then, she didn't even have a name. She was just a little bit of scribbles in the corners of tests alongside a little dragon guy (Later to become Miron) and my longstanding character Michaleon. She's changed a lot over the years, and I've refined and focused her story more and more. Of all my characters, Kaldra is not only the one I relate most to and focus most on, but the character I love drawing the most. She has literally been there for me in times nobody else could be, since even in my worst moments when I drove off my friends and family in my outbursts, or shut myself in because my anxiety was too much to bear, I could always pick up a pencil, and Kaldra was there. Every time someone draws her, it feels like that little broken piece of me that I pour into her is just stroked a little more, like the world telling me it's alright for me to be broken. That this thing I made of the fragments of myself that shattered and resolved themselves into my art can be loved by others. That that part of me that I pour into these drawings can turn into something other people can adore, and as such means no matter how broken I may be, at least it can be turned into something beautiful. I've been through some tough things in my life. I've been battered and abused, both physically and mentally... but nothing. I repeat nothing has made me cry so much as seeing this picture. Nothing could ever destroy this for me. Ever.
Guys, go check on their pages. maryfraser is amazing and has some of the cutest art in the WORLD, and NeutralZ1 is a really close friend of mine who deserves a lot more notice than he gets. He's drawn some of my characters, too!

While I'm at it, no, I'm not dead. I'm just a zombie. College is evil. But I have been regularly drawing, I just haven't really been regularly posting. I keep saying I will rectify that, but I never actually do. I'd like to think my art has come leaps and bounds from the last time I posted anything on here, so stay tuned and I'll try to ACTUALLY finish something I started for a change and put it up.

So... Much... Work.
I just finished the last of my college essays yesterday, and this is kinda how I'm feeling...
Heh...
I couldn't figure out what to draw for clothes, so I just didn't.
Live with it.

Shy Kaldra
I think she's getting irritated at my picking on her for these gifs. XD

Anyway, I was screwing with shading this time in animating, so blah.

Oh, why thank you. It's fairly rare that I have someone tell me they like my art, and even moreso that they say they love it. Sadly, I've been mostly inactive for a while, and I've been having a lot of trouble keeping on my DA account. Actually, I've been having trouble staying active on a lot of things due to college. If you want to see more of my art, I post a little more regularly to my facebook page: www.facebook.com/WerMaekrixMic…
