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.
So I follow the infamous Reg, daughter of the mom who’d play numerous Bioware video games. This subsequently led to the creation of Bioware According to Mom, which has been a fantastic journey to many, including the mom getting some fame in Mass Effect 3 when the Citadel DLC came out.
Anyways, Reg’s birthday was today and I saw a post of “all I got for my birthday was a discount code to buy a mobile game.” I figured the Internet space could do better, hence I cooked this up!
References include Bioware mom quips including the “krogers” working at Krogers (her pronunciation of krogans), Garrus getting stuck with the name Beans, and lastly getting her hands on a babby kroger (that’s how she spelled it.)
Suffice to say Reg loved it. Glad to be of service. Swing by their blog or follow on Twitter for more shenanigans!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! With that, Jennifer sends her heartfelt wishes for the holiday. Thanks to Christina Weinman for the lines.
I almost missed this one, but was browsing Twitter one night when I saw that Moon Studios were having a giveaway, in which they’d hand out some Ori-themed merchandise based on who submitted artwork. They’d pick some they like, then give those winners a prize. I never tried entering my art in contests like this (I always thought I was subpar and kind of still do), but I just decided to try something and get a piece out there.
This was the final result. I wasn’t too happy on the background but the overall piece was all right. I definitely liked the concept! So I entered it into the competition. We’ll see how it goes.
EDIT: Wow. I actually got selected and won a prize! This is just mind-blowing and completely floored me. I never expected to actually win something out of this. Thank you so much, Moon Studios. You guys are awesome!
You can check out my prize here. I also got listed on the developer’s site as a contest winner!
This is the video process for the Cuphead x Overwatch piece if anybody’s interested. This is actually the first time I’m doing a video of my art process, so please enjoy and let me know if you’d like to see more of this kind of stuff!
