For Frail, the first thing that came to mind was the baby cowbird I raised in 2008. The thing was real small and weak, and I became quite attached to it as it grew. It felt odd because at the time the pets we had never really wanted to be around me, and this hatchling would stay close and always be looking at me. So I think it the theme.
I think this is the first time I drew any sort of dog in awhile, and it actually came out properly. Drawing from observation does wonders.
Much fluff, very husky. Wow.
For today’s prompt, this video is what immediately prompted me to do this. I completely related to one-armed robots welding on an assembly line, and while it was pretty minimalistic, visualized said scene. Makes me wonder about when the remastered Halo would come out. Hmm…
This was one of my most favorite out of the entire Inktober prompts this year, Freeze! This was very easy to come up a concept with, and this was pretty much the pose I had in my head when I saw the name. One of my online buddies thought that a “buddy cop” comic or story in this style would be fitting; maybe I might pursue that down the line.
“Crybaby is away!”
When Bait was the prompt, all that came to mind was that famous scene in Firefly where Malcolm dumped the decoy beacon to fool the pursuing military to follow. This is my own version of a decoy that a privateer might use in my settings, a bit more rough and run-down instead of sleek military tech.
Apparently a lot of people liked my Nora character from the last round of Inktober, so I figured I’d feature her again! Here she is just soaking up the night sky, with not a single thing on her mind. Sometimes people appreciate that kind of calm.
And while I went this direction, everyone in my circles seemed to draw mindless monsters or hollow creatures. Oops?
I’m starting Inktober again! A Halo-themed piece immediately came to mind for the first prompt today. I’ve never drawn the Pillar of Autumn despite having played Halo for 15 years, so that’s a new one for sure!

In 2004, Chris “Crobato” Robato worked on a massive fanfiction set in the Homeworld universe. It was well over 100,000 words, and was hosted on the now defunct RelicNews forum; a hotspot for all Homeworld fans in those days.
I did this several days ago, but I didn’t want to show it till it popped up on Bozocow’s 24-hour Homeworld stream last night. And to my pleasant surprise, he did!
This is my take on the new figure that showed up in the official announcement trailer, which I am assuming is Karan (or at least another S’jet). I absolutely love the hair design, and she kind of looked all wise and ancient with a nice female touch, mixed with this space age tech such as the interface plug and light ring.
I’m getting better at full pieces! Though I need to stop taking 3 hours on something like this and work more efficiently.
For having done some sort of Zelda doodles in the day, I’ve never really done any Homeworld fanart that I can recall (or at least, something serious and canon-related). I first was introduced to this series in 2008, and it is one of the most influential space strategy games I’ve ever played; so that needs to be remedied.
With Homeworld’s 20th anniversary coming up (along with the announcement of their 3rd game earlier this month), I did this as all I could think about was Karan S’jet and her “Banana Boat”, a nickname which many Homeworld players dub the Hiigaran/Kushan mothership. This led to the fruits on her head; the other objects are some items that some Homeworld players have jokingly mentioned she’d have in her tank in passing.
