It's the Sunday after spring's first full moon
Which means it's Easter! Party 
This was another very unique Easter. Last night I attended a Greek Orthodox midnight vigil with my brother and his girlfriend's family (her mom and dad are from Crete and Athens respectively). I had never attended a service that wasn't Protestant of some sort before (mostly Methodist, but a lot of it was non denominational), so this was an entirely new experience for me. Oddly enough, I'd actually been inside the church we went to an innumerable number of times; the school I went to actually rented out the cafeteria and kitchen, and I ate there every day. It was a very fascinating experience. It started with turning off all sources of light. Then we all lit candles, and the priest and his assistants walked down the aisle while singing and spreading incense. Then he was at the end of the back of the sanctuary singing and raising a candle for about ten minutes. Then he went back to the altar. Then we periodically s

Hello and welcome to my DeviantArt! I don't have much to give on my biography. Most of my artwork is historical, anthropomorphic animals, or concept for the many book ideas I have (yes I am a writer as well). You can find my previous artwork here: lordofarabia.deviantart.com/ at my old account.

Please feel free to browse, comment, and favorite! I always like a little communication with fellow artists.

If you want to pay for point commissions, please pay at my donation pool so I can keep track of my income. Thank you!

I started watching Samurai Jack
What can I say? I'm still on season one and I'm hooked ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hopping in here to wish everyone a happy Easter, and I hope it went well with everyone. I really wanted to make it to the Triduum celebrations this year, but fate determined it was not to be so--we had to go Easter shopping on Holy Thursday, and Mom and Dad got off work too late for us to go to Good Friday service. Holy Saturday Mass wasn't at our parish, and we weren't going to drive an hour and a half to go to a service that lasted until almost morning. But we made it to Mass Easter morning, and it was good. A little crazy with holiday Catholics. We made a bunch of food for the Easter potluck but didn't get to attend--it was insane inside the gathering hall, and the holiday Catholics were taking up every available seat. I'm a little miffed about that.

Our family Easter wasn't anything huge. No family came to visit since we live states away (lol), so it was quiet. We grilled chicken, had a little candy from my Dad's school candy stash, and watched Star Trek. It was nice and quiet.

Christ is risen--Alleluia!

Office
Professor Ursler at work (or just being depressed, as usual) in his office. Don't ask about his choice in the placement of his desk. He is an archaeologist, hence his odd collection of statues.
This took me almost twelve hours to complete.
This picture is a result of listening to far too many 1920s-1940s British Big Bands, among them Jack Hylton
