Hi guys. I’d planned to post some pictures today, but we had a really big thunderstorm yesterday, which fried certain parts of my computer. At the moment, I have no internet, and the computer is kinda hinky about starting properly. At the least, I’m looking at replacing parts of it - at most, I might have to get a new computer.
Don’t worry, though - I’ve backed up all of my files, so all my works in progress, and all the finished stuff I haven’t shown to anyone yet, is all still there.
I’ve been kinda waiting for this to happen - not the thunderstorm, but the computer-breakage - because my pc is kinda old and rickety and mostly made of spare parts, but now was really bad timing, as I’ve got deadlines and stuff. I’ll pull through, and this is not the end of the world or anything, but I will probably be gone for a little while.
See you on the other side!
The other main character from that romance comic I’m working on.
I wanted the main characters to be opposites - both in terms of visual design and in terms of personality. I’m in the middle of working out the plot and the dialogue right now, so we’ll see how it goes!
Painting practise, referenced from a photo I found deep in my reference-folder. Brushing up on my clothing-fold-and-dramatic-lighting skills.
… Clothing folds are tricky.
Makishima and Toudou, a sketch
(because c’mon we all know this is how their phonecalls went down when they first started and Makishima only has actual conversations with Toudou these days because the bastard just won’t give up)
Character colour study - which is kind of pointless in the long run, because the comic she’s in is going to be in black and white, but hey, she was fun to paint.
… The comic is for an anthology with a specific theme, and it will be my first time attempting to write/draw a romance, so that’ll be a fun challenge.
So, uh, I might just have read 157 chapters of Yowamushi Pedal in a single day. >.> It is utterly bonkers, and I love it. Makishima Yuusuke is my favourite, weirdo spider-limbs and shiny anime hair and all. <3
Way, way back (in, like, late 2013), I wanted to do a spoof on the 1970s scifi movie posters with my scifi characters. And then I never posted it.
But here it is!
Wandersoul is the name of the story as a whole, but right now it’s structured in such a way that each part can be read as a stand-alone story. I don’t really have an overarching plot yet. Also, there have been some changes in the character-designs since I drew this and ergh. Stuff.
… I’m posting this because right now it looks like July and August are going to get eaten up by projects I’m not able to post any of on Tumblr, and I wanted to let you all know I’m still around.
So I've been going through your tumblr, reblogging what really jumped out at me, because if I reblog everything I like, my tumblr just becomes a copy of yours. I am bad at tumblr'ing. You have a lot of cool stuff here.
Thank you. :) I’m proud of a lot of stuff on there, so I’m glad other people appreciate it too.
Seeing as how I just finished up colouring the comic she’s in, here’s a background character for the sequel to that scifi comic I made a while back. This is just me trying to figure out her costume and colour scheme - I ended up going with the one on the right, but if she shows up again, I might use the other ones too.
… It might not be immediately obvious, but her design is kinda based on the brown lemur. She’s also continuing the theme of the comic of featuring characters who are NOT straight white men (because there are so many straight white guys in scifi, I don’t need to add to the number).
She doesn’t have a name yet, though. Any suggestions?
… and here’s the second half of the story. … Asa is a firm adherent to the tough-love principle of dealing with other people.
Again, if you enjoyed this, you might also enjoy the comic that started this whole universe - Fathoms of the Sky (excerpts here and here)
