While sick and cranky and too dizzy to properly sit up and work on homework, I have rekindled my unhealthy obsession with StarWars.
My love for that universe began when I was in third grade and I got to watch the original few movies, flip out over all the plot twists, then wait a few years (while reading many books by Jude Watson --who, now that I look back, influenced my writing style tons. Mostly because she wrote tons of really really overly sad death scenes, a lot of violence, and kids kicking butt, which was awesome, who doesn't love hearing about people their age kicking major patootie-- and making up horrible little-child-playing-pretend-OC's) And then watching the next three that had come out in theaters (with my parents telling us to close our eyes at the really violent stuff in the last one)
And so today I've watched hours of the reboot Clone Wars show and I just remember why I loved so many of the original characters a lot.
And I want to draw. I really want to draw. I want to draw cool action poses, and futuristic outfits and weapons and machines, and I want to redraw some of my weird fan art from when I was nine years old (that stuff is hilarious and embarrassing at the same time)
And yeah, today I've reverted back to shamelessly being the huge nerd that I've tried for ages to pretend I'm not.
Some of the doodles may reach here, but most of my doodles are honestly weird lines that kind of make a shape, but mostly just look like squiggles with dots on the head shape, so maybe I can get something here from a warmup
