About Tea

I am a fairly normal deviant, not really much to say there. I enjoy long walks on the beach, drinking tea while watching the sunset. Oh and bald green aliens whom run around space. You know all the normal stuff.

I am truly passionate about my art, and improving an opportunity I can get. I love trying out new things and expanding my artistic abilities whether it be traditional or Digital. I am not the fastest, or most productive artist out there. You have been warned!
However, I am always open to making new friends so don't ever hesitate if you wanna chat to give me a good ol' tap on the shoulder! I don't always reply fast but I'll be sure to get to ya as soon as I can!

I am an aspiring college student to be, trying to pursue her dreams to land herself in the university she's always aspired for. I have always wanted to be an artist, ever since I was young; however over used hte phrase is it applies here. YOLO I want to chase my dreams rather then live with the regret of never trying. On my deviantart page I will be posting my art as I progress as an young illustrator/sequential artist, and hopefully someday make a living do so.

Essence of a King by Octeapi
Essence of a King
I have touched lightly on the subject of 'essence' and what it means for the residents of Almaca's planet in the past. When it comes down to it essence is not a 'visible' substance or mist, its more of a 6th sense that only the races of Ephomeris possess. One can feel it, and one can even almost touch it with their own essence. However it is impossible to touch essence, one can reach for it but it would be the same as trying to catch a ghost. It would just go through their hand. Most commonly the aura cannot effect the physical world except in rare instances where the essence itself is extremely strong. In those highly uncommon scenarios some essences are able to smother other essences near it or seemingly cause a gust of wind.  Essence itself can be made to attack another's soul, however doing so is extremely difficult to master and a feared power to possess. For when you attack someones essence, you are attacking their soul, the very essence of their being in its rawest form. 

You can tell a great deal about someone from their essence, you can determine a vague idea of how their personality is.  You can even grasp a reflection of how they are feeling at the time by how it bends and twists depending on their state of mind.
You can relate an beings essence to a area, environment, or creature depending on the attributes they display. Someone whom is described to be like a mountain can be unbending, and strong. A mighty being, whom holds themselves higher than most, but holds a sort of almost core depending on the individual. Another example would be someone with the essence of a pool of water, tranquil, soft, and kind. The surface quiet and still until disturbed sending ripples to all the edges of their being.

A more specific example being a direct relation to this image with Almaca. His essence is very similar to that of one of the mightier creatures of their world; the dragonfly.
(However my partner in crime Joydroid and I have yet to make a proper name for the creature and just refer to it as a 'dragonfly.' Whether that shall remain its title now or change in the future is yet to be determined)
Alma's soul/essence is strong, but blows easily with whims like the wind, carried where the currents take him, however he is able and wiling to fight against any storm that he may face to protect what he cares for. 
I have explained a few times in the past how Almaca's people believe that their markings can foretell the future and destinies of their kind. The dragonfly is refereed to as a 'regal' creature, those whom are selected to take the position of King for his race are requiring to have marks similar to the said beast due to this great respect they hold for the main predator of their planet. The species itself becoming rarer by the year.

 TRIPLEstream ONLINE by Octeapi

Hey guys!

Doing a double stream with my Pal Zerna 
Anyone whom is in the Invader Zim fandom should of heard of her already but if any of you haven't I recommend you go check her out! 
We're gonna be doing some art projects, maybe some crack pairings, and plenty of doodles! 



Don't post links without permission
Do not argue with me over requests. 
Only one request per person.
I don't really make a list for these.
If you had a request last stream you can't have one this time, lets let other peeps get one too. 
Keep the conversations pg-13 unless the age range of the chat permits it to be different.
Try not to curse, aka watch your language
Just because the rules are here doesn't immediately mean I will be taking requests!
Do not use the stream as your own personal pep session for a friend, or as an therapy circle.
Also, do not continuously try and get feed back on your own characters during the stream. 
Don't mention coffee.
Or lipton.

Difference between a 'Suggestion and a 'request::
A suggestion is like giving the artist an idea to draw, such as: "Draw Enya in a horror movie setting!" or "Archer and Rec arguing" Instances that they can draw out. You can get goofy and have fun with it of course! 

A request is "Can you draw my oc?" "i want a picture of *insert oc here*" *throws link of their OC out* ":I I SUGGEST THIS"

Drink Tea <3

Gonna Find You by Octeapi
Gonna Find You
This is a somewhat late gift for my friend Joydroid who just turned yet another year older this last month. Go toss her a happy birthday wish if you like, might be a little after the fact but you know what better late then never. 

Skulli here has been put into a hybernative state via cryostasis more than once in his life time. The last instance of him being made into a human Popsicle however was when he had been 'forgotten,' or well more correct statement was that he had been lost. Enya discovered him buried underground underneath an NEU outpost and woke him up from his icy slumber. On accident admittedly but lets not dwell to much on that. Basically that moment is kinda what this image is signifying. Her waking him from his suspended state and pulling him from the darkness to the light of reality. 

This picture was inspired, and drawn to the song One way or another By Until the Ribbon Breaks :…;
I am friggen obsessed with this song right now.

All art and Enya's disembodied hands belong to Octeapi 
Skulli belongs to Joydroid

“As far as her mom was concerned, tea fixed everything. Have a cold? Have some tea. Broken bones? There's a tea for that too. Somewhere in her mother's pantry, Laurel suspected, was a box of tea that said, 'In case of Armageddon, steep three to five minutes'.”
