This is one of a series of requests that I got from Instagram user Starmay79, who was wanting to see my Nora Inktober pieces colored. There’s two more left in the series, so I’m halfway there at least.
This requires a small bit of a story, but I was recently inspired to do my higher-detailed style on an art piece that came to mind.
Several years ago at Animazement 2009, I had ran into someone who was donning a cosplay I had made for a friend. This someone and I hung out for a bit, before I parted ways to head back home that day. What they didn’t know at the time was that I had a bad day, and hanging out with a familiar face + getting to see a cosplay I worked on in use made my day.
Since then, I’ve been wanting to draw said person as a sort of thank-you, but never thought I’d be able to pull it off properly. I had tried on paper a few times in the first couple years, and kind of forgot about it once I hit ETSU. Going down memory lane again I realized that it was better late than never, especially since people were actually commissioning me for art.
So thank you, Kendall. You left a positive memory with me that stuck almost 10 years later. I don’t know where you are now to get ahold of you, but maybe you’ll run across this in the future one of these days.
On an artist’s note, I’m real happy with how this piece turned out. I did this completely with my Intuos, which was a shocker to me; usually I only get these near-realistic proportions when drawing with my Cintiq. So this was a pause and gawk going, “Huh, I pulled it off.”
I have not really been working on Dawnstar since fall, but when I do work on the dev portions, I tend to make large strides in bursts. This is no different.
After much feedback from some of the Steam Greenlighters, I was able to use Ren’py’s new tools to make a custom chat box. In this instance, I went with a retro-looking “computron” frame for the box. Gave the name it’s own spot on the top, and everything can flow freely on the bottom, while leaving room for the characters!
What do you guys think? Do you prefer this over the original black gradient? Let me know in the comments below.
This was a nice piece I got to do for u/thorbeck15, with him and his girlfriend in their living room for Valentines. They absolutely loved it and it was fun to work on as well! Before I started on this, I had no idea what Spot-it was; sue homeschool life for me.
This was an art piece that was supposed to get done near Christmas, but got delayed for various reasons. However, I’ve had doodled a connection I knew back in 2017, specifically drawing her with attire from the Janus Fairytale setting. I took this a step further and wanted to do a “mystery” piece to give as a gift for the holidays. Despite being late, I finally got this done either rate!
I was real happy with the background and the lighting, it’s been a bit since I did something that was foreboding but not directly spooky.
You can check out said connection, who’s name is Sandra Shuman! She does art coaching stuff and does a lot of interesting things. Do check her out here.

I’ve been struggling with this for a few months, but finally found the motivation and the second wind to finish it how I’d like. More of CMDR Taranava and her awesome goodness; here, she poses with the mascot for the Fuel Rats, and online Elite: Dangerous community figurehead ObsidianAnt. With some recent events that came up, I found it no better time than now to get this done.
This was specifically done for the peeps on the Distant Worlds 2 Expedition, as most of those guys are explorers and suffer a lot when nonsense gankers wreck the party for everyone. Us Mobius peeps wish you the best on your massive journey, and always welcome you guys to play in our group as a safe haven if you need.

EDIT: This apparently got a little bigger than I thought it would! The head admin thought it was great enough to post to their official Twitter page.

Recently I picked up a good bit of followers after iiluminaughtii published her video on my AntiMLM comics. I’ve not picked up that amount of people in quite a bit, so a thanks was in order. Thank you, all of you. Please do stick around, and I’ll do my best to give you interesting things to look at.
When I was looking for people to cover my AntiMLM comics, I ran across another Youtuber by the name of iiluminaughtii. She was quite friendly and offered to give my stuff a look, and uploaded this video earlier today. Please enjoy her shenanigans and follow her down on her links below:
This was a request by Instagram user Starmay79, who wanted to see my Nora character pieces colored. I finally got around to this and got the Cruel one done. Hope she enjoys, I’ll color the others sometime.
