This was one of my most favorite out of the entire Inktober prompts this year, Freeze! This was very easy to come up a concept with, and this was pretty much the pose I had in my head when I saw the name. One of my online buddies thought that a “buddy cop” comic or story in this style would be fitting; maybe I might pursue that down the line.
I’ve been drawing for quite a long time. I sadly can’t say I’ve been drawing for most of my entire life, but it’s safe to say I’ve been drawing for 1/3rd if not more of it.
As described in my previous story about deviantART, my art skills didn’t really take off until I had access to the platform. A couple of years before that I had taken a short three-week special course at Walters State in a summer drawing class. That helped up my skills a whole bunch over my pre-teen drawings. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t terrible, either.
You should have a bit of fun with this page! I get to delve into my Kashri species a bit, so enjoy.
While their meetup went well, Vash’na tells Benthessia about her encounter of a hun, which ends up resulting in her getting arrested by starbase security. At least we get a win, right?
This page drew from inspiration of two particular posts that was floating around the week I drew this; one user talking about Lipsense people at an airport, and another was a user who censored a face when talking about an LLR botique. So those two got incorporated into that.
Vash’na came out real well here for some reason. All her face markings were spot on.
Dawnstar is hitting Steam Greenlight! Great thanks to Chelsea Cook for the trailer voice. Announcement following in a few days.
Christina helped me conceptualize this scene; the two more “Terran” girls of Dawnstar go grab necessities, as they know the layout and acceptable behavior when landing on Terran-owned colonies. Why Happy Mart? Sue me, they probably like convenience stores better than supermarkets. Who knows?

This was something I cooked up the same evening I got my used Intuos 4 tablet. I had also just bought a brush pack for traditional oil/watercolor patterns, so I was giving that a whirl too. This was quick and rough, nothing too developed. Also was trying to get used to using a big tablet like that at the time as well.
Something from Motion Tools 2; I can swap out the sky and put in a different background. Yay?
In all honesty I love how it came out, though. One of my video projects I’m more proud of.
I know it’s not much to look at, but this was a significant piece for me. I had gotten comfortable to walking into the ETSU DIGM labs on a whim to just use their PC’s for things, including the ones with the Cintiq 21UX tablets. This was the first drawing I did from start to finish, took me an hour one night when doing one of my classes that evening.
I knew at that point that I HAD to get one of those new Cintiq tablets for myself. That gave me the best drawing experience that no tablet had before.
So yes. Novia gives you happy belated Valentine’s Day wishes.
While I was waiting for some evaluation results at the Walters State general office, I got to work with playing with some kid’s blocks they had sitting around. This was the final result; a rough version of the Vigilance from my to-be 2008 NaNoWriMo entry. Apparently the lady at the desk was somewhat impressed with it as well.
