Princess Zelda

Zelda looks slightly evil but I think it suits her since she keeps getting possessed/manipulated in order to resurrect Ganondorf, or as he's named in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Demise. I haven't finished the game yet, but when I do, I'll have a review for it up on The Verbal Mosh's site. I'm taking a break before I attempt fighting Demise. I know it's gonna take me several attempts to beat him. SEVERAL.

With many breaks in between. Unless, of course, I get lucky. When I played Twilight Princess, I remember feeling like it was easier to beat Ganondorf compared to the guy trying to resurrect him.

Sometimes the simplest puzzles get me stumped.

E.T.A. I beat Demise on my second try. What?!!!! :D

Anyways, Happy almost New Year, everyone :)

I was watching Deathly Hallows Part 2 again, the other day. I just had to draw this moment as I LOVE this scene in the movie. It's so heartbreaking.

And look! I finished my mittens with the buttons I bought :D

Happy Holidays!

So Cold

The other day, I was walking outside with no coat, just a sweater for additional warmth. By the time I got home, my hands were balled up with my sleeves pulled over them and my ears were freezing. Not good.

The latest issue of Knitty is up. I just love "Borough." This has been the first time I ever saw a project, queued it and cast on so quickly. I had been thinking about knitting myself mittens for a while now, and after the events described above, it only cemented how much I needed them. They're just about done too. I need to find buttons. I really want to check out the store, Tender Buttons, but I'm afraid it's a little out of my way right now. I may just plan a visit though, once I've started my new cardigan. I've got all the yarn for it. I need to start swatching and charting my pattern.

I paint a lot of pet portraits. Occasionally, I get asked if I paint people's portraits too. I do. I just love painting animals a lot more, so I don't have as many examples but here's my latest self-portrait. :)
