I Like Drawing Dragons

Hey, I'm Arin and I do art sometimes. If you want art, I also do commissions. (Click here!)

Arin (pronounced Arr-in) | he/him, they/them, ae/aer | Nearly eighteen | bi? lesbian? idk, but I'm also ace and genderqueer | Baby to witchcraft | I like drawing monsters and fantasy things, but dragons are the most fun to draw.

I'm a traditional (paper, ink and pencil) artist, though I've dabbled a bit in digital, and hope to more soon!

Also cats are babies and I love them...

naiad asked:


Venus: Go to piece of clothing/outfit?

-I don't think I have one specific one, but as of general style, in spring/autumn, T-shirt, jeans, jacket (on or around waste), in summer, cute tank top and shorts, winter, some kind of basic long sleeve shirt and jeans.

As I mentioned on the last ask, I haven't really figured out my own style yet, but once the pandemic is over I wanna save up on go on a clothes shopping spree, try on about a billion things, and make my own wardrobe setup.

Pluto: What do you love most about yourself?

- I think I'm a nice person, and I think I'm pretty funny. I like my face too. :)

Saturn: What’s your aesthetic?

-uhHH I'm not entirely sure. Most of my clothes are still the ones my mom's bought for me, and while I like them well enough I haven't really figured out my own style for myself, y'know? But also online and stuff, rubber ducks XP

The Sun: What motivates you?

-Depends on the thing. For art, I find it enjoyable, I like being able to translate what I'm envisioning to paper (or computer ig), and I have a sort of practice makes perfect mindset so I want to get even better at it

But for other things like activism or whatever, I'm optimistic in the way that I know things are likely to get better, since if you look to the past, we've come a long way, and while things aren't perfect right now, it's likely that our actions now will positively affect the future, even if it takes longer than my own lifetime.

babushka asked:

The Moon: Favorite quote?

Whoops, I haven't checked waterfall in a while. I'm back (for now) though! Hoping to do more art stuff too :P

Anyway, hmm, that's a good question. I'm not sure if it's a very favorite, but I find a relatable one to be from Alice in Wonderland.

"Alice often gave herself very good advice, but she very seldom followed it."

First attack for art fight. A bit rougher than I intended but I was tired. Still cute tho

(Here's her character)

A flight rising commission I drew that took far too long because I tried a far too ambitious pose for a fae dragon. Those fans are hell to draw. But he turned out a baby so it's okay.

fallow asked:

i gotta kno is ur name squeaky-warrior because of the squeakyfrog???

Seeing as I don't know what squeaky frog is, no. :(

SqueakyWarrior was a joke I made with friends in middle school and it stuck. It's suppose to be a squeaky rubber duck, except they fite.

waterfall color palette challenge! send me a character and a palette

(other artists are welcome to reblog this as well!!)

squeaky-warrior -

Y'know, let's get back into art games. Those are fun.

Moth Friend!

I think the opacity on my shading lair got a little janky so it's hard to see but whatever.

I don't think I ever posted this here before, but this is an Audrey II I drew for my school's Little Shop of Horrors musical poster! We... didn't actually perform since 'rona hit but I'm still proud of the art.

Would add a background and details if it actually got used XP

Uh hi.. Anyone like RP?

I know I'm not on a lot and don't know any of y'all well but it would be nice to know some of y'all? Plus I worked hard on the lore of this server so uh if you like Rp? And you like Fantasy/Sci-fi stuff?? Join my RP discord server maybe???

Here's the disboard blurb to prove it's cool and stuff:

There are three worlds, one in medieval-times, one in the future, and one in modern-day. Near-infinite space separates them but yet, somehow... they are not truly apart.


Wow it's been a bit since I've been on Waterfall. Hi all!

Anyway I got a drawing tablet that I'm very happy with, and I drew this for my friend's birthday!

Some siblings vibing. And also Zote.

Ever just have a random really strong feeling of wanting a girlfriend late at night but A. don't have anyone you like, B. live in a conservative area where there's not a ton of open queer girls anyway and C. are ace and are scared of being in a relationship because of what a gf would think, and so decide to post it to the void?

Oh... just me?

Flight Rising Art Shop

Heya idk if any of y'all play Flight Rising but I've set up a commission art shop there! It's also only in-game currency, so you can still get art if you're broke IRL.


I'm going to be hopefully doing Flight Rising commissions soon! Still need to make some more example pieces, but I'm excited and this was fun, I love drawing dragons. :3

Here's my first finished example piece, one of my Coatls, Caelum!

gremlin-gal asked:

yo 6 character ask - edward elric from fullmetal alchemist ;)


saw this on twitter and thought it sounded fun! so please give me six characters from popular media to draw and i'll give it a shot!

(please view it there as well, the creator allows reposts but all credit belongs to them)

gremlin-gal asked:

yo dragon/demon ask game....how do u feel about a mushroom dragon?

Here it is!

Not the most proud of this, tbh... I had ambitious ideas in mind and then things were looking weird and it was too much detail and effort and all that so uhh here it is I guess.

Might do a different, less bad certain of this later...

"Hm, it's too bad there don't seem to be any art memes or ask games focused on art going around on waterfall," I say, making no effort to think of something myself.

Character April!

Since I'm going to be home with almost limitless free time until at least May, I thought it would be a good idea to work on my art skill, while also creating more solid character concepts, so I'm making Character April for myself, but anyone who wants to can join in, too!

It's basically like Inktober but I'm dedicating each week to one character, because I want to work on different characters but also have time to develop them.

Anyone drawing along could do a different character each day or one for the whole month, you can make more prompts, too. Whatever you feel like doing.


WEDNESDAYS: standard character reference
THURSDAYS: with a pet
FRIDAYS: utterly bored
SATURDAYS: favorite activity
SUNDAYS: Fashion Friday™
MONDAYS: saw their crush/squish/a pet
TUESDAYS: waving goodbye

(Edited day order, because April starts on a Wednesday. Sorry y'all, these weeks are going to end up a little wonky.)

(If you are still going in the last week you can continue into May to finish off you want.)
