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 heading out to NYC for awhile, and definitely plan to snag you some interesting photos if not stories for you guys. In my absence, enjoy this piece in the meantime. I’ve always joked about sticking someone with older-fashioned clothes in a car for a road trip, so I’m glad to finally properly get this illustrated.

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.

Yesterday artist raikoart jumped on board the #drawthisinyourstyle challenge. Basically you draw a given character in your own style when they use the hashtag. As people loved his sci-fi secret agent Tess, raikoart decided to call out and see who’d be up to the challenger with her:
I answered the call and did Tess as best as I could, in my most common styles. I mostly was light-hearted in my approach, even referencing a mischievous Orthin from Stars in Shadow hiding from Tess in the webcomic panel, having stolen a bunch of Snickers (another running joke with the character).
You can check out raikoart’s stuff below:
This was something I whipped up for the r/touhou community. I took Yukari Yakumo and created “nose art” in line of the Stars in Shadow universe. Didn’t make it too “pinup-y” if that made sense. Mainly just wanted to make her the girl of attention toting a giant cannon.
Ship silhouettes from the Stars in Shadow game.
Something I drew over for the people over at the r/touhou subreddit. Everyone’s favorite Sanae wishing people a happy Friday. Guest is u/ScaffleBun in his avatar form in that subreddit.
If you ever feel bad about not finding a job (like I’ve felt in the past,) you’ll find something eventually. Just keep looking and improving on yourself. The right jobby-job is waiting out there for you!

This was something fun I worked on randomly this evening, making a bit of fun of CMDR Taranava’s Duchess status. Obviously one of such social standing must have an entourage of maids and servants, so I decided to jokingly propose some of the CMDR’s maid staff.
From left to right:
Not so much a maid, more like a personal assistant and bodyguard. I see her knowing martial arts and doing things to keep the Duchess safe, along with tagging along with her to hold clipboards, and manage affairs.
A generic Imperial citizen that hails from Kamocan. Quiet, efficient and would take care of basically anything, but mostly housekeeping.
An old grump who divorced her husband, shuffles papers for the Duchess and makes sure her logistical needs are met. Yes, that is a Gutamaya-branded vacuum cleaner.
A diva brat from a rich Imperial family, who’s now in debt and has to pay off her debts in Imperial indentured servitude. General work and housekeeping like Miyoko. Will join the Duchess if she does pranks and shenanigans.
The Duchess’ personal wardrobe assistant, an Azrael native. Helps pick out outfits, along with carrying luggage and making sure she has what she needs in terms of attire.
Apparently this was a big hit on the boards, and a few of the members love certain maid assistants. I’ve been thrown the gauntlet to draw the maids toting various forms of weapons; we’ll see what that will hold.
Also the “crown” notation is a running joke on the board; apparently CMDR Taranava has a pretty spiffy headset with Imperial stickers on it. So the collective joke that the headset is the Duchess’ crown.
