Hey peeps! Welcome or welcome back to The Beahive!
Today I am multi-tasking; sharing a crazy awesome artist with y’all AND maybe introducing you to a ship for the first time.
I have no idea what goes on in the Ninjago Fandom, so there’s a large possibility that you ALL know about this…but I’m sure there’s at least someone who’ll go ”Huh! How novel!” Because I did.🤷♀️
But anyway, bACKSTORY.
Part 1: The Style
This is inspired by the style and art of DreaD. on Etsy—she has SO MUCH ART. All kinds of art, from so many fandoms! She does all kinds of things, from fluffy Reylo (Rey and Kylo Ren from Star Wars) to Disney versions of famous paintings, to pieces inspired by Edgar Allen Poe! (Just to name a couple things) It’s insane the variety she does, one minute sweet and Disney, the next dark and twisty.
I was truly inspired by this artist, so I thought I’d let all of y’all know she exists.
AND because I borrowed aspects from her style for this art!
Part 2: The Ship
This ship is—drumroll please—Harumi and Morro!
I was looking through the trivia on Harumi’s Ninjago Wiki page, and I found this!
Now of course with *spoilers* in Crystalized, this is probably completely nonsensical. (Unless *spoiler* was dead then un-dead🤷♀️) And then of course Morro turned good, and…well, many things. But I still drew them, because for some reason it inspired me!
Here it is!
Now, I was up until past midnight last night working on this. And still it wasn’t finished until this morning. But it was WORTH IT.
And yet, Morro doesn’t have toes!🤷♀️
Speaking of which, this is my first time drawing Morro! I think he looks good! Although his hair is…not my FAVORITE.
And that’s not just because he doesn’t have Tony’s hair. Best hair in the nineteenth century.
And yes, that includes Tom Hughes as Prince Albert in Victoria.
okay, getting back on track.
I’m…still super hyped about Crystalized. So there will probably be more Ninjago art in the near future.
VERY NEAR FUTURE! RIGHT NOW, IN FACT!
(Oh, but Spoiler Alert. Read ahead only if you’ve seen the latest Crystalized stuff or don’t care about funky little LEGO teenagers)
Just a friendly (haha not likely) little sketch page of some screenshots from the trailer, plus an idle theory doodle up in the top left corner.
*sigh* Ninjago, amirite?
It’s actually kind of late, so you can be on your way. Although if you’re either not on WordPress at 9:40pm or…in another timezone…it’s slightly egocentric to assume you’re all in my timezone…you’re likely reading this at a reasonable hour.
ALSO, happy birthday to my fantastic mum!!!🎉💕 (known to us as Mama, but it feels strange to call her that online, and I dislike the term ”mom” so I call her mum although YES I KNOW I USE MOM SOMETIMES I’M A FLIP-FLOPPER OKAY😩)
Happy Wednesday to all y’all, and HAPPY SUMMER!!!!
Song of the Day: Look What You Made Me Do, by Taylor Swift. (BUT. IT’S. HARUMI. hehe, kind of fun to think of Morro and Harumi singing this together. They bond over hating Lloyd.☺️ In that…weird universe where they were both dead and evil at the same time…)
