Taking a little break from all the Frozen fanart, please bear with me :o
So back story. A few nights ago, I woke up in the middle of the night and saw my girlfriend using her phone (tumblr-ing, most likely). And for some reason, despite my brain being heavy with sleep, the way the light hit just the tiniest parts of her really stuck to me.
I don’t exactly recall why I woke up, from a nightmare or something else (back story to this back story: i get nightmares a lot and sometimes wake up yelling or crying or my GF has to shake me awake. I don’t always wake violently though and this night was one of them.) but I think I do recall her telling me that I didn’t need to worry and that she was right beside me. Then I probably fell asleep again after that.
This is a sort of attempt to recreate that? (using her OC that is heavily based on her person, of course)
Anyway, I hope you like this. :) Thanks for reading my ramble!
Kawasaki-esque experimental sketch #3. (I haven’t posted #2, and I’m not sure if I will.)
Funny thing about the title. I was thinking of words that relate to bondage or rope-work and came up with “tangle”. Suddenly, Lisa Hannigan’s song called “Knots” started to play on my phone. Huh, now isn’t that appropriate?
I think I like this sketch. It’s not a theme I’ve ever considered drawing before (for the record, I’m not into that fetish either). It’s considerably light than what bondage can be, but still for me, using a theme I am not familiar with is quite liberating.
I’m thinking of working on it some more during the weekend. But for now, this version will do.
Done for a friend, featuring her football-crazy SO. She intends to print this on a mug, thus the post title. :P
In other news, I’ve officially made a commissions page which will (eventually) contain the work progress of the jobs I accept. You can also access it by clicking the link found on my side bar.
To match this event (lol), I’m also planning to ease the site accessibility within the month (with the help of Hiyas). One of my ideas is that when you click on a thumbnail, it will immediately open a lightbox containing the image’s full size, instead of opening a new window like how it does now. Of course, there will be exceptions here and there but that’s still in the planning phase for now! 83
Made the post in time before the week ended. Though I admit… I rushed that BG a bit. :| I should really think these things more thoroughly and plan from FG to BG. The art teacher in me is ashamed. LOL. But still, I’m really glad that I managed to “finish” a new piece.
This new work is a product of tinkering with Painter Sai, which I am starting to prefer over Corel Painter.
P.S. New header image by Alcestrine! ♥ Thank you, bu!
Oh hey! I totally forgot to post this! A collaboration between me and Alcestrine, where I inked and she colored. This image tiles into a wallpaper too!
So this cafe is part of our imaginary world of Chokoban. Can you name all the characters? Only Gekido and Ruzenka are original here… and no, we aren’t claiming the others as our own. This is just something my friends and I started in high school, which grew into a big and crazy idea that Alcestrine and I love to talk about up to now.
Now, I have no idea whether to put this under fanart or original. 8|
Just some WIPs of current drawings I’m working on. I’m also trying to pinpoint what technique I can consistently use from now on. If you’ve noticed based on the gallery, my style seems to jump around and sadly, I haven’t found something I’ve stuck to.
So far, I seem to favor the one on the right despite it looking less polished. It reminds me of inserts in shoujo manga.
What about you? What image in my gallery do you like the style of?
hair: red, wavy
height: 5′ 9″
other details: several scars, most notable one runs along her upper right abdomen to her right hip
Scion is quite aware of her intelligence and can be boastful about it. She is generally calm and collected (as people tend to fear and try not cross her), however if the wrong chord is struck, best to run for cover. She also has a tendency to be blunt, and is very intolerant of stupidity. Because of this, her crew find it quite difficult to communicate with her. Around Aiah, she is much softer and patient.
hair: light blue, straight
eyes: mint green
height: 5′ 6″
other details: has a tattoo on her nape
Aiah’s upbringing in the monastery was quite strict but not necessarily unpleasant. She enjoyed priveleges commoners do not experience, but remains quite modest despite knowing her importance to the Empire. Soft spoken and amicable, the crew of Scion usually communicate concerns to their captain through her.
DERP. Giddy over my work. I feel silly (been smiling to myself since sketching this) but mostly fluttery and squiggly. Is it still fangirling if it’s your own creation? Well, I have a new OTP and they’re CANON.
Anyway, I’d like to introduce my new OC, Scion! The idea came from a dream of a vague female redhead pirate captain, who had a lover that looked like my other OC. The dream was (is still!) very clear in my head and I just had to turn it into a story… this upload is a sidetrack of the thinking process. XD
Unfortunately, I still suck at BGs, and my attempt to add one failed miserably. Suggested source of light is suggested. :P
I decided to put up the plain version as well, because I think the lineart deserves to be given a second (closer) look.
Now back to squeeing. X3
Swapped featured image with the plain version. Dark version can still be found here.
OMG, a post!! Not a fanart this time, I’ve been thoroughly occupied writing an original story, involving these two characters. You might recognize one of them, she’s been a frequent in this gallery. The redhead though, is new.
They are lovers. Hah. Lovers, okay?
The title? Well, I’m not sure how relevant it is to the story, but it’s from a song by Olivia Lufkin that has been playing on repeat during the entire time I was drawing this. Constantly feeding me with angsty energies… (z_z)
Anyway, hoping to get more art done about this story soon. ( o_o)7
OH HEY! It’s been a reeeeaaally long while since I last drew a bishounen. I’m glad to note I haven’t lost my touch. Haha.
This is a rough sketch of my original character, Percie. He is in love with Nikita Marjolaine, who has a tendency to be somewhat insane. She’s quite abusive of his devotion, but maybe deep down she cares for him too.
Aiah’s incarnation in World of Warcraft. Drawn at around October last year, I left it for a while thinking I would probably work on it again. But I didn’t and don’t have any plans on fixing it up anytime soon.
