In which I aggressively talk about positivity
I got a lovely ask earlier from an Anon, who said that they were happy to see that I am so strictly decided on producing positive content, but one part of their ask really got me riled up (about the world, not you, sweet Anon), and I quote;
“Everyone else always loves talking about genocide run, and makes me feel like I’m being childish or w/e because I can’t and have no desire to do it”
This is something that genuinely bothers me about how a lot of people perceives things.
There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING CHILDISH about not wanting to partake in needless angst and preferring happy, bright things.
There seems to be this ridiculous conviction that dark things are by default “more mature” but that’s not and never will be the absolute case.
It takes a lot to stay positive, because life is not a walk in the park. 
Life might break you, and life might throw unexpected negativity at you at every turn of the road and the most m

Support These Artists!
I've recently made friends with two artists who work on the design team with me at BABSCon. They need more watchers because I LOVE their work.

:iconMarzKartoons: is a very talented artist who's a master of value work. Please check her out, she's awesome. She designed the cover for the con book this year for BABS, I'm sure it will be posted soon!

:iconSketchThePony13: is my adorable adopted filly and I shall protect her. She's a very hard working artist who continues to impress me. I absolutely love the designs and color palettes for her OCs.

Heya!! --- Favor?
Hey guys! I know I haven't been active lately, it's mostly because of issues with my phone and the fact that I don't have as much access to a computer as I used to, plus I'm quite tired. Notice how energetic my usual posts are and then... this one. Heh.
To make up for this... I've got four people that you should really watch!
I don't do this much. I probably will only ever do this a couple times. Please just tolerate it for the time being. 
First of all!
:iconFiawin: She's got the cutest art style and she's a very kind person. Go ahead and check out her stuff! She also has a super cute adopt up that no one's taken yet. Take a look!
*inhales deeply*
I'm not actually sure if I should tell you guys all this lol, you might want to steal them from me... but here goes.
I swear I have never met a sweeter, shyer (is that a word?), more creative and surprising person in my life. Their work is bright, colourful and never c

Hi, I'm Marlena! I'm a primarily self taught artist, and I draw fanart and original characters in a variety of traditional and digital media. Traditionally, I like markers and gouache, and digitally I use both a Wacom Intuos tablet with the program Autodesk Sketchbook and an iPad Pro with Procreate. I try to post a new drawing every week with occasional little doodles in between, so I hope you'll stick around!




Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

Wicked Tribe T-Shirt by MarzKartoons

This is the full drawing I made for Tad Williams and Deborah Beale's Indiegogo campaign
centered around merch for Tad's Osten Ard and Otherland books!

I'm incredibly happy that I had the opportunity to work on this project, and
there are so many cool designs by other amazing artists, so we'd really appreciate if 
you check it out through the link below and consider showing support! There's
just over two weeks left to pledge if you're interested! ;w;
Guys guys guys!
Lookit this, my art got into the Gamers For Good Undertale Artbook!
I'm really excited because this is the first art book my art has been in, and
the proceeds go to some cool mental health charities!

My boy Plop seems to like it too! ^v^

This book is full of so much amazing fanart and like I said, the proceeds go to charities supporting
mental health, so I'd recommend getting it!
You can check out their website and perhaps buy a copy (physical or digital!) here!


I finally reformatted my old tutorial on coloring a drawing with my quick shading style to fit Instagram, feel free to check it out!…
