I put this together this week. I’ve been wanting to show how my Notikan race functions in a more normal environment, rather than “just standing up and being popey”, to quote an online buddy. This was a result of that, showing one greeting a pilot to his vehicle, having the role of a technician or sorts.
Thanks to @elucidator_arts for the figure lineart.
For NaNoWriMo this year, I’m rebooting my Vigilance setting, which was the first story I got my 50K word award in 2008. I’m not sure if I’ll reach the goal this year, but I have a pretty cool idea where to take it, and have a couple outlines done. I put this together from a sketch a week back, as an event that might happen in-universe! I think I need to actually do some proper art 12 years later on the setting, especially now that I at least use a tablet.
And while I was drawing this, did have this on loop for a few times. It certainly helped with the mood, and probably had an effect on the final product.
I got on a kick of listening to Synesthesics these past few days, and after hearing his NFS remixes, pumped this out. Your favorite blonde New Yorker/Notikan priestess takes to the road in a Lamborghini Aventador. I originally was just going to do her and nothing else, but this morphed into a full scene pretty quickly.
Give Synesthesics a listen at the following URL. The album that drove the inspiration for this is the NFS Reloaded 2nd Edition.
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.
