For once, I actually get my Valentines art done! Please stay happy out there today. I know it may seem crummy if you’re single (I am, I know all too well how that feels), but it’ll work out. Improve yourself and be active about changing being single, if that’s what you want. That last bit is extremely important. Fingers crossed we’ll both get somewhere one day.
EDIT: I was told by my an online friend “to stop giving the bug girls guns.” I may or may not heed that suggestion.
So it’s stuck. From my last game, it’s now a running joke that this will be a murder mystery. I even spammed the NCIS theme in the group chat when I dropped this. It made my DM laugh, which means at least I had some humor.
So, can an edgy hacker (DM), a reckless detective (friend) and a by-the-book desk agent (me) solve the murder at the inn in Plaguestone? Join us on CSI: Plaguestone.
So I’ve not really told or shared my adventures that I’ve been playing with Pathfinder, but I recently started playing The Fally of Plaguestone, an official 2e module that my DM’s friend decided to run. I decided to use the character I made after Yorina’s mom, which clashes but is hilarious with everyone else’s characters. I’m frequently called “The Pope” (gee, I wonder why?) and kind of had a bit of bad luck with some bad rolls. Otherwise, still in one piece and having fun so far.
So the last game we had a big brawl in a bar this evening, and me and my friend decided to clobber a drunk farmer who was starting trouble. The farmer took a chair, called Marios a little lady and whacked Astrian over the head with it. In return, we both whacked him unconscious, before finding out our dwarven host died from poisoning. The DM’s friend mentioned that the bard was playing “banjo music” during this fight, and even requested that I draw this into the final piece. So I obliged and added him. As much as I don’t like things from where I live, I do think this song is extremely fitting to the scene, and can fully imagine it playing while the brawl plays.
What happens next? We’ll find out. It looks like it’ll be quite awhile, though.
“Our world has some pretty creepy and scary things that we don’t understand. But you look up at the band in the evening sky, and realize that’s only a fraction of what you can’t grasp.”
Tried something new for Friday night, inspired by something I saw in an old college era folder. I’ll go back and revisit the head but hopefully it gets the point across.
To explain, Heather’s world is composed of several floating islands on a oxygen-based gas giant. Said planet has a ring system that can be seen in the later daylight and evening hours. So because of the world’s makeup, the sky always seems to appear a bit blue and purple when it’s dark, especially towards the the same hours. This means you have a very fascinating view to look up at.
Got a bit inspired to do some stuff after my trip, and drummed these up! Here’s some of my characters in black and with gear, ready for some action with a experimental ride. Featured are Emma (blonde) and Peepee (blue hair). Admittedly, some old stories about the Skunkworks is what inspired me to do this.
This was part of my Secret Santa that I am way behind on actually finishing. But this was for a pal I met a few years ago for her Christmas gift, picturing the two of us (self-portrait!) poking around in the mysterious bowels of the Internet late at night. I originally was going to go the “ancient alien/mysteries” route and depict some artifacts, but I wasn’t able to settle on a museum design I liked.
Hopefully this comes a close second. More serene than mysterious, but I was pretty happy with it.
I saw this going around on Instagram and deviantART, so I decided to hop on and do it myself. Here’s my collage of art in a decade.
As you can see, it varies up and down, but only has taken big steps in the last 2ish years. My art was on the cusp of going forward in 2013, then I regressed and it was like I started drawing from scratch all over again to a point. I know I’m very glad with the progress I made, but I feel like it’s progress I should’ve made when I was 6-7 years younger, not when I’m in my early 30s’.
Better late than never, however! Here’s to 2020 being a year I make good milestones and outproduce what I did previously! I think constant work hours has to do with me getting better.
For once, I actually get my holiday image done on time, instead of publishing it in the early hours of Christmas morning. Everyone have a great holidays! Lineart courtesy Christina Weinman.
For today’s prompt, I was thinking about a fall festival for some reason (probably because of storywriting). So I went with a fall wreath, food and some gourds. Pumpkins and squash especially give me autumn vibes, and I enjoy growing them when able. This might be another one I end up coloring as well.
For today’s prompt, Horizon Dawn Zero came to mind. I didn’t feel impressed to draw Aloy however; so I just drew an atypical resident in a regrown Earth looking out into the expanse.
