Now also active on tumblr! For more art and also shitposting (but with art!)

Hello Internet, lovely meeting you all ^^
I'm Drosera-sundews. Just your friendly, neighbourhood pseudo-scientist. You can call me Sundews, or Loes (that's Dutch, pronounced as 'loser' without the "R"). Or anything else that at least sounds like my name, be creative :D

I am 19 years old, Dutch and a second year biology student. Biology and art are more or less my two great passions in life. I draw and write in my cheap ass student room inbetween dozens of practica and lectures, it can get hecktic, but I manage :)
I make mostly fantasy art. Both digital and traditional, and also do literature, animating and crafting on occasion. I love dragons and draw them a lot, you'll find loads of them in my gallery, but I also draw a loads of other stuff and experiment quite regularly. Better not trust your expectations XD

Wow what's this, no bad memes this time? Yeah, I just felt like updating, feels like forever since I spoke to you all. The first three weeks of university haven't been the easiest. Bioinformatics, need I say more. Ghees what a nightmare. An interesting and important nightmare, but still a nightmare. It's all about making sense out of the thousands and thousands and lines of seemingy meaningless AGTC Dna codes. It would be interesting, but there's just so many different websites that solve different problems. Ugh. It feels like being thrown into a maze and trying to make your way out, but instead of having the time to map out your environment, you're being teleported to another part of the maze like every hour. It's frustrating. 

My other course is much more interesting. Basics of Infectious Diseases, it's called. It's about infectious diseases (so viruses, bacterias, parasites and the like) from a biological (not medical) point of view. Really cool. Except the labwork went all wrong. The problem with working with organic things in a lab is that everything looks like water. You've got a sample, dissolve it and then you have a bottle with what looks like water. And then? Procedure procedure to make it visible, but then in the end when you end up with nothing, how can you tell what went wrong? Well you can't, tough luck. This is also exactly what happened with my and my lab buddies. For four times. Yeey. 

Ugh, okay. Enough with the sulking. On a brighter note, I'm probably going to do Inktober again this year. I've hesitated about it a lot because of how awfully wrong it went last year, but I think if I stretch properly and take a break once I have exams I will manage. Let's hope for the best. 

Also, on a sidenote. It's always more fun to do it with more people, so guuuuys :D INKTOBER, who's in!!! 

All right that was it for random updates. Sundews out!

Inktober 2015, day 6 by drosera-sundews
Inktober 2015, day 6
A real life friend challenged me to draw a peacockbird. Peacat? Catc... wait, no. Just. No.
Either way, there you go, xEvangelx 

Also, guess who's photoshop just died at the most inconvenient time ever :( yup, mine. The program still starts but it won't open a file or make a new one. Rubbish! Not I can't edit anything! *sigh* good thing I've got a good camera on my smartphone.

So I asked for some suggestions for things to draw during Inktober, because I was going to try to now end up with 31 dragons. And Ikebosev suggested I'd draw a space crocodile. It's not a dragon! Promise! It's a space crocodile :D 

Also I kind of want to after-edit this one with like, sparkly space effects. But maybe that'll have to wait untill november. Heh. No inkvember EpsiloNaturion but perhaps an aftereditember?

For :iconxevangelx: The birds and the bees! Or... the birdbees? Beebirds? Beerds? 
Also look at how I'm totally getting the hang of photographic art presentation |D 
Lol just kidding, getting this picture right took like 30 tries. Damn it, wind!

Let it be known that I take challenges really very seriously. 

Sorry, tomorrow will be serious XP Promise!

Hm okay, that's a bit strange but sure :) Is this just a thing you do? Randomly finding people? Seems like a bit of an odd way to get around, but then again, who am I to judge. Always happy to meet new folks!
So what's it you wanted me to do again?
