Wakey!Wakey! always cheers me up. c:

trying to get a better grasp of color theory. i've always struggled with color... whenever i color a background, intending to render it fairly realistically but without a reference, it always ends up exaggerated and more whimsical than i expect. anyway, i used Prismacolor pencils, if you're wondering.

some happy Percy and Annabeth. <3
edit: Annabeth is dropping stones in the water, which Percy bounces back up with his powers.

Rick Riordan owns Camp Halfblood and it's inhabitants.

Your coloring is so gorgeous! I love it! I don't know if you two have already done something like this, but I'd love to see Viria color in one of your drawings. You do great with coloring, but it'd be interesting to see how your two styles mix. Eh, just a little nonsensical dream of mine <3

I cannot even draw a stick person. You are complaining about your coloring skills?
Awesomeness to the max. Perfect Percabeth

I want to say this is my favorit drawing of these two, but I'm not quite sure that's true. However, something about this drawing creates this fuzzy feeling inside that your other pictures don't. The sunset-Perfect! And I love their relationship. You make them look natural together-the way it should be! Love it!

You're work is great! I have major issues with drawing bodies, which is unfortunate, because everything I want to draw just happens to have bodies in it...but you're a master! I love everything you draw :3

This picture has always made me so happy. Then I read Mark of Athena. And now all I want to do is sob. They just look so peaceful and happy. Everything about this is beautiful. From the little details of colours and shading to just the picture in general. Percabeth will always be one of the most amazing characters. And you Burdge capture them absolutely perfectly. ♥

Thank you.

i cried as soon as i saw this picture again, and the title of it as well. I actually think of percy and annabeth as real people, because i've read about them for years, they're so close to my heart and when i read mark of athena my heart broke in a thousand pieces.
