Valentine's Day Memories by Holly-the-Laing
Valentine's Day Memories
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Since this is currently plot relevant, I decided to feature Rick and Rachel from my webcomic Terra. It’s a photobooth style picture (I think that can still be sort of a retro thing in the future) of them while Rachel was pregnant with Kate, which would make Rick around 20 in the images. This was also around the time he first enlisted in the UEC.

You can read the webcomic here:

Patrons of my webcomic may recognize this, it's one of the posters I made for last years Central Canada Comic con and is available as a downloadable 11x17" high res poster on my Patreon page.

The character is Grey O'Shea from my webcomic Terra:
Flattened by Holly-the-Laing
I sketched up this image during a particularly bad bout of fatigue, which is a symptom caused by my MS. It's probably the closest thing to a self portrait I've done in a while (maybe I could have picked something more positive lol).

I think for everyone, not just those affected by chronic pain, there are times where everything becomes too much and you just feel like you're being weighed down by the world. Drawing this was therapeutic, having MS can be very isolating, so I think it helps to express some of what you're feeling, anyway you can.

I wrote more about my experiences with chronic illness and fatigue on my tumblr, here:…

Had this as a Patreon exclusive for a while and figured it was time to post this to my deviant art page. This took about 12 hours  (not counting the many different redraws I did of the lineart) using my cintiq 13HD and Photoshop CS5. This image, along with two others, is available as downloadable 11x17" poster at our patreon page.

The art is of Alexis Hawke, a character from my webcomic Terra:

I remember you from the REfan forum, I knew your art looked familiar.

Hey! I remember you too, your art is looking great by the way. It's been ages since I've been to REfan, though I don't really visit many forums these days.

I just happen to stumble upon your webcomic and I'd love to know and read more on it ^^

You can read more about the webcomic here:

There you will find the comic, as well as a codex (which contains quite a bit of information on the characters, technology, and species in the comic) and an image gallery. Hope that helps. :D
