This is a piece I had done earlier in the year, but had forgotten to post here on the site. Whoops.
But yes, this is a digital redraw of a piece I had done in 2009 on paper. I used my Cintiq on this one to redraw it, to great effect. I loved how it turned out and think its pretty interesting I actually finished this, as the original paper drawing was a WIP I didn’t complete.
To be honest, I really like how this came out. Especially with my better drawing skills, Jennifer really came to life here. Here’s that I can do her greater justice in the near future.
I’m heading out to NYC for awhile, and definitely plan to snag you some interesting photos if not stories for you guys. In my absence, enjoy this piece in the meantime. I’ve always joked about sticking someone with older-fashioned clothes in a car for a road trip, so I’m glad to finally properly get this illustrated.

Yesterday artist raikoart jumped on board the #drawthisinyourstyle challenge. Basically you draw a given character in your own style when they use the hashtag. As people loved his sci-fi secret agent Tess, raikoart decided to call out and see who’d be up to the challenger with her:
I answered the call and did Tess as best as I could, in my most common styles. I mostly was light-hearted in my approach, even referencing a mischievous Orthin from Stars in Shadow hiding from Tess in the webcomic panel, having stolen a bunch of Snickers (another running joke with the character).

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! With that, Jennifer sends her heartfelt wishes for the holiday. Thanks to Christina Weinman for the lines.
This was an old drawn piece that I had done in my sketchbook back at ETSU, but decided to do over and give it a shot in digital a few years later. I had bought a bunch of brush packs in an attempt to paint better, and gave a few of those a shot here. These were all oil-painting type brushes, and I think they gave the effect I was looking for quite amply.
A couple years back, I was trying to get a story project going, based on some friends I had known at the time. I had even roped said friends into doing a cosplay with me, which turned out okay I think. I kind of made OC’s based on them and had started to put a faint storyline together.
Unfortunately it kind of bombed and I just swept it under the rug for a bit, but I recently decided to try to bring it back to life and reinvent it. While I successfully remade it with different characters, one character that still stuck with me that I wanted to keep, and that was based on Pri, the Steampunk mechanic.
Amy Clark was doing commissions at the time, so we both happily worked out a commission showing her character in a new, better style. I was real happy with it, and was able to successfully reinvent this new version into someone I had thought of.

This was another piece that Tonks_92 did of one of my OC’s. I actually thought I had lost this one, until I found a USB drive that I hadn’t touched for years until recently (it’s no longer online). The hair came out real nice in tone. This was the last piece they ever did for me, haven’t really talked to them since then.
This was something I did earlier in 2004. With my IGA universe, I had this idea of a prototype spaceship with a high-capacity engine. It was built with technology found in an alien crypt, and has the abilities to go to different galaxies.
It wasn’t too big of a ship, mostly mean for about 3-4 people to ride in. Over half the ship is power systems and engines. It isn’t geared for combat with light weapons, but it has an excellent defense shield.
