bug waifu

When I opened my Discord server months ago for buddies, my pal Taranava had made the suggestion I draw my bug girls as baristas, one of them brandishing weapons. I loved the concept and obliged recently, and have now pronounced the two as the server’s official mascots. I’ve yet to give them names, but I think they’re a bit too inspired by Gura and Ina from Hololive.

I’m discovering a ton of footage I lost the past couple of weeks, including some old art recordings and footage from Orcs Must Die: Unchained. So those are queued pronto, as they’ve been sitting longer.

When I met my online buddy Wayc, I had created him a Kashri OC for him to use with stories, etc. In 2019 we had cooked up this sort of spoof of a zany 50’s story akin to the classic The Blob, so I was starting to do some artwork for him in a dump for inspiration. I had done more than these two figures, but these were the ones I supposedly decided to get footage of.

While that was for him and is not for public sharing, I can share the footage of what I’ve done at least!

While I was on my writing streak last summer, this was one prompt I had written a response to. I find that I like to “go against” the grain of most of the responses, if that’s a thing. A lot of people on this thread were “whoops, I got left here” or “I was serving a prison sentence here”. The architecture reminded me a lot of South Asian, so I tried to put that into a spin of someone visiting. A bit brief and rough, but I liked it.

“How far are we out?”

“Not too far, we will be onsite in a minute.”

Va’shoo unsteadily fingered her pulse rifle. Their lance had been sent to bodyguard the Monarch’s “Paladin” on a personal matter. She had sent her and several of her sisters with this task. The young man differed from both their kind and hers; the olive skin and dark hair. He had been recovered in deep space two years ago, and his origins were unknown.

Had an early start today, and had the urge to put this out later on. Admittedly this was partially because of a Reddit post I had seen a few days ago, but I honestly have been in a sort of post-season funk with some of my projects. And considering I haven’t done a fully-illustrated piece since my birthday, it was time to change that.

 

I drew a lot of inspiration from this song, which I had looped on repeat for a few hours. I was in a full debate to make this a Halo-esque warzone or the rain, but I think the latter fit in with the tone I was going for.

I briefly was on a small writing stint near the end of my birthday. I saw this writing prompt, and decided to turn it around and flip it on its butt. Suffice to say some retro, old sci-fi might’ve played a hand in my final result (the aliens definitely took a page out of The Jupiter Theft).

Truth be told I was horrified by these aliens. Being unarmed in just the NASA jumpsuit, was not something I was accustomed to. These floppy, tuby aliens of burgundy, with three eyestalks and two mouths. Their voice sounding like someone drowned. I was instantly grabbed and pulled down the corridor.

It doesn’t help that me keeping to myself all these months, some of the “outside chatter” of the world is going to end has been getting to me. I’ve been trying not to be depressed by this, but me being a Christian it has made me take a pause.

 

I did this one late night I couldn’t sleep. I tried to be as surreal to a point, showing my character leaving a hell behind to go someplace better. It also gave me a chance to draw her in her new threads from the previous piece too. I had some other pieces I was working on that were related to this, which did take some inspiration from Zdzisław Beksiński.

 

I do hope things get better. If not, that I can at least handle what’s coming.

Did this earlier today, trying to get a hand of drawing a bit different. Still have a long ways to go; despite the virus, making it a goal this year to at least change my art style up. While working one day, had the urge to draw Vak’shi in different clothes in a more casual pose. I’m glad I did do that, I’m happy with it.

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.

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.
