one of my pages for the PJO zine! woooo! (still have to resize it and all that technical stuff, but whadduppppp Stoll babes)
it always feels like i lose so much when i transfer a pencil drawing to digital, but oh well, this was good practice.
literally finishing everything for the fanzine at the very last second, which comes as no surprise- it’s how i operate, i’m so sorry.
here’s my portrait as a child of Apollo for the back cover! i wanted to have some of my more sketchier work in the fanzine, because, let’s be honest, 80% of my artwork for PJO is like this- rough and pencil-y. also, i gave myself beads that equaled the number of years since i discovered the series. <3
endless list of characters i love: eris (sinbad: legend of the seven seas)
