This was a short warm-up piece I did over at r/ICanDrawThat for u/BritishPleb, of his four Steampunk girls called the Red Boots. Interestingly enough, the redhead was my most favorite to draw, with the mechanic being the second. I’m slowly getting better at drawing figures faster, but still have a ways to go before warming up in an hour.
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.
Something random and silly I drummed up when sending someone an e-mail. Yes, Kashri have purple tongues.
As autumn starts filling the skies with shorter sunsets, the ground with yellowed grass and leaves from trees, I realize just how long I’ve been putting off posting. I had composed a few things as a backlog for continuing with my blog on a full-time basis, but have not due to a pressing family issue currently going on in my life. When it clears I’ll hopefully be back to my good old self.
Dawnstar has progressed greatly over the 15 months that I had hired an illustrator to help me with the art. This was the biggest burden on me for completing the game, and after all that time coming to a point that I have a complete set of art assets for the project. Hannah has been nothing short of helpful and a great person to work with.
My sister got her room remodeled a little bit, and part of what she did was get a portion of her room painted with the “markerboard paint”. I got to try it a little, and decided to put this fantastic piece out with one of the markers.
Even though I’m in DIGM now, it always feels like science doesn’t get a fighting chance. I got inspired to make a motivational poster for people to actually like science and keep their heads on logically. I might’ve been doing digital art, but I was probably the only one around that still wanted to do things with science and a telescope.
Maybe when my skills get better, I’ll revisit this concept again and do a proper piece. Only time will tell.
