Gemsona: Moldavite by VenGethenian
Gemsona: Moldavite
All right so... contrary to previous sketches posted here, this is my REAL Gemsona, Moldavite, as identified by my significant other, who (now, as always) knows me far better than I will ever know myself. 

If you can't be bothered to decipher my handwriting, her weapon doesn't actually literally look like that. It's more of a Swiss Army soup spoon. 
Riddle Me This by VenGethenian
Riddle Me This

Lookit, I painted a thingy! I’m feeling very proud of myself. I’m getting my muses back after spending a long time waiting for my brain to recover. I started feeling better a couple weeks ago – a LOT better. Better than I’ve felt in YEARS. 

So! This is a watercolor painting, actual dimensions 4″x6″ – it is a postcard. It is also a puzzle, just a little game I devised for my BFF, a sort of a gift as I reach something that looks like a breakthrough in my mental health and he takes the first steps towards finally dealing with his. On the back, I have written its message in a certain fictional alphabet (Tengwar), which he is challenged to decipher using ONLY the original author’s description of how it works. No help from the internet, no hints from friends who can already write in it, he has to do it like I did it and show off his awesome skillz. It’s symbolic of showing that if he can master this tangle the same way I did, he can tame his demons and reach places of peace and joy just like I’m starting to do now too. 

Or, as I told him, I can't physically send him all of the hugs in the universe so I'm sending him a poem written in meticulously-crafted calligraphy on the back of a weird painting of cat feet. 

Gemsona WIP - Pietersite by VenGethenian
Gemsona WIP - Pietersite
OMG guys. I haven't drawn anything -- not a single recognizable scribble -- since January. My muses have been dead silent.
It's nice to make something I don't hate. :)

I need to get some sleep before I start coloring this. I'm SO EXCITED to paint it, but... well, google pietersite. You'll see.

I am going to have FABULOUS fun with this...
J's ''New'' Hat by VenGethenian
J's ''New'' Hat
I decline to explain the title out of respect for the anonymity of the subject.

"J" is a woman I met at a New Year's party at AA. She was an inspiring person. She helped me begin to rediscover my artistic muse, which I had been struggling with for a long time and finally lost to alcohol almost a year ago.

This is the outfit she was wearing, portrayed as a jellyfish.

Hi! I'm Ven. You probably know me as Oancitizen's title card artist on or Chez Apocalypse.

I regret to announce that due to personal reasons, I am currently taking a break from doing title cards and am not accepting commissions until further notice.

I thank you all for your kind words, and your patience. I just need to deal with some things right now.
