So recently I’ve been in a mood with my art, and usually that does result in me coming up with genuine stuff that I’m feeling. This was the result of some Gradius music, upcoming Valentine’s day and some IRL experience when dealing with people where I live.
This is that recurring redhead character in some stuff I write, although I don’t draw her often. I decided with all of that going on to draw her in my new style, and push it a little further this time.
I suppose you can also call it a continuation of a piece I did when the pandemic was in full swing, but yeah, there you go.
Finally am getting around to getting you the art process video for my last holiday maidens piece! I know it’s been quite awhile since Christina and I worked on something together, so here’s this to enjoy in lieu of that. Happy holidays!
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.
A long time ago my DnD buddy Karomaz had a concept for a game, involving a tiefling paladin and his kobold alchemist. This was always just a joke doodle for months, but when I got that post-birthday art streak, took a proper stab at the idea. . This is tiefling paladin Lillith, Champion of Calistra under the Patfhinder 2e rules. And her sidekick is Flakk, a kobold who scraps with dirty tactics. What future awaits for them? We’ll find out and see.
This was my birthday gift to Wayc this year, drawing him his Kashri adopt in an Asian outfit (based off of this video here). Had fun with this, and will have an art process video on this in the future!
This is my piece that I did for Bozocow’s Homeworld Anniversary stream! It got congratulated as an in-between of the old and new Karan. First time my stuff was featured in a video. Took me quite a bit, but I was very happy with it in the end.
Something I did at the beginning of 2020, just to get back on track after some work and whatnot happened. Specifically, had two very nutty jobs I did work for, and just needed to create something really in tune to my interests.
This was also inspired by the stories about Lockheed Skunkworks. Plus also showing off some heroines with space-age weaponry in black.
So in my custom tabletop CoC game, I feature several of the cast from my Heather and Janus Fairytale settings. One of these is Maddie, Elizabeth’s sister. She helped co-manage a tavern by the name of The Nosy Ram, named after Fluff. She was a bit of a source of information for the players, who often visited her establishment.
One of her favorite things to do was to grab a chair and sit with the players, often flipping the chair and sitting backwards on it. A few of them found this hilarious, and the players associated this posture with the character. They also dubbed this after the famous “Riker Maneuver”, in which Will Riker sweeps his leg to it over a chair. So I decided to quickly draw this out for them.
One thing’s for sure; Janus and Heather have a pretty eccentric aunt. Pretty sure she makes Elizabeth facepalm quite a bit, too.
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.
One week in September, I got quite moody after doing a few pieces of art. Mainly, hearing some people where I live talk about how “they hated flying” and didn’t want to go anywhere near an airplane with utter disdain. I guess when I took to my tablet that night, I wanted to show people who loved those things, envision who I’d be looking for in the future partner-wise, and backdrop that with a bit of sci-fi flavor. I even had the sidekick don the esteemed Azure Empyrea, which the cockpit did not do it justice.
There is a half-sketched prequel to this piece; I’ll share whenever I finish.
So when I run my Call of Cthulhu Ellowwood flavored game, I often try to make artwork and such for the guys. They hit a milestone in which one of their original group had to leave (they had a new job IRL), and had a small respite after beating their objective of a major plot boss. This is all who survived at one of the player’s farm, with their NPC sidekick Caroline. I have a replacement lined up for them thankfully, and they’ll engage in main quest lines once they get a new player. So only time will tell.
I need to start drawing full scenes like this more often. Still evolving with the way I draw, but since January have been losing the will to actually doodle things. Hopefully it’s seasonal.
