handmade hummingbird ornament by tae-kia
handmade hummingbird ornament
This is a present for an elderly woman I used to see when I went to church, and I wanted to do something nice for her, so I'm going to try and take this over some time before Christmas.
The hummingbird is made completely out of white Sculpey III clay and wires, then painted over with Americana acrylic paint. 
I substitute black thread for the silver cord that you see in these pictures because I think it looks better and less conspicuous. 
Let me know what you think :) 
more Christmas present pics to come as I finish them.

Cosima (Orphan Black) Christmas card sketch
Cosima chibi from the show Orphan Black for a long distance friend of mine. If you haven't seen this BBC America show before, it's really great and worth checking out.

Peter Pan cosplayer in a TARDIS Christmas sketch by tae-kia
Peter Pan cosplayer in a TARDIS Christmas sketch
A friend cosplayed Peter Pan at Kantaicon, so this is a chibified version of him from one of the pictures he posed for, inside of a TARDIS, because he's also a Doctor Who fan. This is what happens when I ask what they want me to sketch and they say it doesn't matter, I make it really random XD

Peter Pan belongs to the creators of Peter Pan
TARDIS belongs to the creators of Doctor Who

Current status: working part time in a retail store. I have just e-mailed three professors about graduate school, but no replies yet, plenty more that I need to e-mail before anything is decided. I'm taking the GRE for a second time at the end of October (my math scores weren't that great). There are just a lot of things I need to fix with my life right now that I'm not happy about yet I continue procrastinating and it's my own fault. Going to try and start exercising again tomorrow morning because I would like to lose weight and be in better shape and need to stop being a couch potato. 

One of the good things though, I did make my first cosplay from scratch, the Raistlin Majere cosplay in my gallery, with the help of my good friend and her mom, and I'm so happy with it. I need to fix up the silver trim again and fix the staff (the orb smashed) but after that I can't wait to wear it again and take more pictures, hopefully with the gold makeup soon. 

I have so many ideas that I want to finish, but I have to balance that with trying to get my future figured out and saving money, so I don't know if I'll get to any of them any time soon. Next and probably last cosplay I am going to do for a long while is a Toothless (HTTYD) gijinka. After that I'll just fix up and rewear the ones I already have, like River Song and Yoko Kurama. As far as artwork goes, I've stopped drawing. I try to pick it up every now and then but it's just not any good. Before I could at least say I was halfway decent, no expert, but at least average. Now my drawings aren't even that. My little clay figures, however, have come along way since I started making them in middle school and I am quite proud of them, but don't have the time to devote to making them right now. I'm probably going to make some for my friends for Christmas presents like I always do, and as always I'll post pictures of the finished products here. 

Not many people read these journals, so I really just type them for my own benefit at this point XD but feel free to comment if you do. I feel bad for my watchers, I'm a pretty boring artist to follow, I hardly update at all ^^; but thank you for watching me anyways :3 I really really REALLY appreciate it.
