Groups

Okay so for those of you don't know, I've had a Flight Rising account since April 2014. My username is Mort over there, ID #61896 if anyone else out there has an account and wants to go stare at my pixel dragons.

In other news, I've set up a sketch blog on tumblr, which is where I'll be posting all my FR-related artwork, as well as practical art-improvement stuff and silly sketches. So if you want to see more of my daily artwork than what I have here, go follow that. I'll obviously still be posting stuff here; but not the fanart and not the crap art. I'll upload only pieces I really like to dA, and of course the Auran comic pages whenever I get around to working on those some more.

Anyway, here's my new sketch blog: mort-draws.tumblr.com

Hello, everyone. I'm Skyleap. I tend to draw a lot of dragons; mainly traditional art but you'll notice that I try a wide range of art genres and styles.

Angels bowling

I always liked that idea
As if Heaven were some giant bowling alley
As if, above the dark clouds,
Lane upon lane of elegant wood stretched
Out into nothingness
And people dressed in white and swan’s wings
Wandered and bowled,
As if their dreams never contained anything else.
I could hear it, some nights,
The growling in the sky
A peaceful, lengthy rumble fading into the distance
It is then that I remember:

A bowling alley, a birthday party,
Where I first noticed and talked with
A friend
We mimicked the simple Heaven of a child’s mind
Gentle rolling thunderstorms
Angels bowling.

But there is no sweet metaphor
To name the other kind of thunder
That sets my heart racing
Breathing fast
Or not at all
That brilliant

Flash

of light
That strikes at the same time
As the sound of the air splitting apart
A display of raw power
I remember:

An abandoned campout, running in the dark
Back to safety, fleeing from the war in Heaven
With that same friend
For a moment we both stood in the wind and the rain
Threw our heads back
And looked up.
Ode to a Thunderstorm
From my final portfolio for my freshman Intro to Creative Writing class.

Toned Paper Study by Skyleap
Toned Paper Study
This is actually from my Fall 2014 art class that I never really got around to posting stuff from. Oh well. Anyway, this was my favorite piece from the class, and it was a lot of fun because chalk is fun to use and smudge. The professor had this collection of weird shapes, and one of them was this hella creepy mask/face-thing. So he put it on a piece of tin foil and shone a lamp on it to make it even more disturbing.
