"When does fall officially begin? Astronomical fall began at 9:04 p.m. ET on Thursday, September 22, 2022, in the Northern Hemisphere, according to AccuWeather. This time also marks the beginning of spring the Southern Hemisphere"

Ok, so fall's here ...and?

Well, I guess it means I'll upload an ACO in celebration ...not that I actually celebrate anything, mind you, but most of my watchers probably do (and One-Cent ACO is all about watchers ...so long as they neither ask for nor expect anything). ^^

Anyway...

For the autumnal equinox, I have drawn ...a leaf (because I'm oh so creative)!
But not just any leaf: I have drawn a tree star from Don Bluth's 'The Land Before Time' universe. :3

To see the tree star in action, click here (link tested 09/22/2022): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOUYJlL4EaA

After reading through the comments section, I decided the tree star was probably a worthier subject than I thought.
Here are some tree-star-related comments I liked (apparently, the tree star makes a great tattoo),

"Got a tattoo today of a tree star with my moms name under it. She showed me this movie and it will always be my all time favorite movie. It'll always have a special meaning to me" (Anthony Lozano)

"i have a treestar tattoo on my elbow, in memory of my mother. This clip makes me tear up everytime" (Killswitch32)

"Littlefoot plays with that Tree Star like a toy. It warms my heart!" (Virginia Clark)

"EAT THE DAMN TREE STAR" (Jimmie Rustler)

:3

Anyways, I suppose these aren't difficult to draw, though this card took two attempts. How or why you may ask?

Well, here's my first one: https://sta.sh/0icmhnc6xfx

I suppose I tried a little too hard insofar as drawing the leaf symmetrically (I used a compass to draw this thing ...this was like only the third or fourth time I've ever used a compass to draw)! XD
Consequently, the leaf looked a little too polished, at least insofar as its outline (I admit I'm a little green where drawing veins are concerned).

I thought the leaves in the background (which were just scribbled in as an afterthought) looked better than the full one, so I thought to draw a new tree star a bit more loosely (like the ones in the former's background).

I drew a fairly descent star-shaped undersketch, then drew curves connecting its points together (the end result kinda looks like a pentagon), then draw the cut-outs (to form the spear-tips).
I shaped the aforementioned a bit, and I had a better tree star: asymmetrical (sure) but not in a bad way. :3

So, this second drawing looks very raw and real to me (at least more so than the first), as a proper leaf should (at least that's what I'm going to tell myself so I won't feel the need to redraw this later). ^^

This is NOT to say I drew either leaf well (I count the first as a failure, and the second as acceptable), but whatever (it's a leaf---what do you want from it? ...just say 'Happy Autumn, Chippy!' and leaf it at that ...pun). :P

Pencil...

The featured pencil is the 'Maple Leaf' from Eagle Pencil Co.

Shouldn't be surprising to learn this Eagle was Canadian-made, and is fairly rare (as printed Eagles tend to be).
This one's unpointed, so I cannot comment on its performance, but old Eagle are generally above average. :3

As weird as this is, tonight marks the first night that it's actually chilly for me. Looks like the Astronomical Fall landed on time... where I'm at at least. :3

MUHAHA!

It's chilly here in the mornings, but then heats up. :3

Neither drawing looks like a leaf to me. Make it floppier. Draw one as if it was just thrown up by Little Foot. Personally I thought Little Foot was more interesting to look at than the leaf.

I guess it kinda resembles a snowflake, but I wanted to show its shape.
We're introduced to the tree star as an open leaf ...and seeing as I'll likely never draw it again, I wanted it visible.

You basically said it, a snowflake is rigid. A leaf isn’t.

They are after a while. ;)

That leaf's been around at least a dozen years more.

Happy post Equinox!

You need a collection of "seasonal" pencils that represent all the seasons. :D
Also yes Eagle Pencils are very nice. I've used them several times and they
always come through. Also even though they seem to be a bit darker than other
pencils they last as long as other pencils which is something you'd not think a dark pencil would
be prone to do. :)

Oh, I have such things, albeit mine are mostly for Christmas (the most recently acquired is a fun candy-cane pencil from Japan). :3

I like old Eagles, but Good God they ca come so dear! D:

My big regret was letting an Eagle 'Cupid' get away from me. It sold for $90 ...at the time, I didn't want to pay that much (so I didn't), but seeing as I've yet to 'get over' not buying it, I feel that I should have. :p

I mean, Chippy is all about hearts (as is Cupid), and consider Timmy! XD It was too perfect, but, alas! D: ...:3

Maybe someday you'll get the chance again to get a "Cupid". I'll cross my fingers for you. :D
I am now officially looking forward to what you share with us for Halloween and Christmas. :D

Tis the season, I guess. Lol. I'm not looking forward to it. But it is what it is

Fall is really boring to me. Regardless, I'll be making some seasonal art here and there---Sweetie will (of course) make a return (as she does every October), and I'll make some monster ACOs ...presuming, of course, that the Lord doesn't take me between now and then.

Fall is just depressing to me. Largely because it means the cold is coming, the holidays are coming, snow is coming, etc. And the cold tends to mess with my head & emotions. Yeah, I probably have a case of S.A.D. But aside from that too, I also just don't like the cold or holidays either. They aren't fun times to me anymore. I'm not happy during those times. In fact, it only just gets me paranoid.

But anywho, I'm always looking forward to see what you make. And lol don't say that my friend. I know it's a joke. But I certainly wouldn't bring that to the universe's attention
