This was something I cooked up upon a person I’ve known from an Elite: Dangerous group called my Type-10 a space turtle. While this was nothing new, she had previous described other ships with varying names. I decided that this finally needed to be put down for posterity, along with sharing to the entire world.

 

This did get posted on Reddit with almost 1,000 upvotes and 25,000 views. Suffice to say it was well received. In fact, commenters wanted a Part 2. Looks like I have my work cut out for me.

 

Inspiration from CMDR Taranava.

With the whole Gnosis snafu that happened, there were quite a number of unhappy pilots. More notably a good chunk of explorers were parked there, most equipped with unarmed Asp Explorers (no weapons = lighter weight = bigger jump range). Thanks to a very priceless comment in one Reddit post, this comic was the result of that.

Hats off to you, poor AspX explorers. Let’s hope the odds are in your favor the next time.

This is something I had doodled on Twitter awhile back. During one of Kizuna A.I’s video playthroughs of Detroit: Become Human, she had firmly declared “NO CARL” in English when her character was asked a question. Of course my mind went in a different direction and saw this instead. Sue my imagination for seeing Ai-chan actually pushing someone in a wheelchair around. >.>;;

Now and then we have contests in the Mobius PVE group. Most of these revolve around cartography data, finding griefers and even art contests. This recent one was for who posted the most amount of genuine content, which would result in being in the top ten contributors in the Facebook group.

 

The ten lucky boffins got picked, but I got special mention for the comics of the group! So when filling out the form to get my sticker packs, I had to upload “photo proof” of why I qualified for stickers. I got snarky instead, composing this instead of a screenshot.

 

I love Elite: Dangerous, I really do. But it’s a shame the only “fighter-like” ship is an Eagle or the things you launch. Even then, it wasn’t to my liking. So I doctored mine a bit. External missile points, a WW2 paint scheme and even a refueling probe on the nose.

 

Let’s hope the stickers get here soon.

This was something I had done for the r/AntiMLM subreddit several months ago. It’s safe to this piece jumpstarted my current comic trajectory; after getting the feedback I did, I delved more into drawing for people such as Twitter requests, the Todd Anti-MLM comic among other things. I think it was a big change for me, and I’m happy it opened up other stuff for me to do.

I’m behind on these things, but I have a couple OC’s that I had scoured off Twitter to draw. This was one of them.

 

This is 8Bit_Witch’s OC of herself, used as her avatar for streaming/art. I wasn’t really planning on doing it in this style, but it kind of just happened. I was real impressed with it, as it was the first time I had drawn such a figure in a really long time. Like, years. I felt accomplished I was progressing once again in my art journey, as a goal is to properly draw figures so that I can tell stories.

Something I did for one of the people over at the ElitePVE/Mobius group; it was her birthday and I figured I’d finish up an old piece from January into a short comic.

 

The sassy and punny CMDR Taranava graces us with a worthwhile Anaconda joke. In the background is CMDR DEAMONSRUN9393, who is very grounded with anime tropes; hence his “nosebleed” reaction to Taranava perched on the Anaconda.

When I started to get my feet wet on the Internet, not all of it went well. Quite the opposite. I was quite a newb, and my homeschooling background coupled with strict parents didn’t help. Then add that I wasn’t on it enough to get the hang of things. It was a very bad combination.

I talked to very few people online. But there was one person I was in correspondence with that I had met over an Atlantis fanfic. As time went on they introduced me to a site by the name of deviantART. I signed up in 2004 after hearing them mention they were on it, and slowly started to delve into what it had to offer. I do remember I had posted a few things but because of my social ineptness mixed with poor drawing skills, pieces were lackluster at best. I didn’t even have a proper scanner at the time.
