Just in case you thought this is a COOL tumblr, last 10 minutes of today’s and yesterday’s shift at work.
Two upper ones are musings on the style I want to draw Empty Chocolate Wrappers in. Idk
Michaela and Hanna (gender-bent Michael and Howard from my webcomic >Hunch)
Me: I have genderbent Michael and Howard
Me: so Michaela and How… Ho… Hanna XD (…)
n: how about figuring out the next page?
Me: well I drew them because I seemed to have lost the ability to draw them
Me: so I was practicing
n: now you’ve gained the ability to draw them genderbent. makes perfect sense.
Me: yup :D
Actually I doubt Michaela would wear corsets every day - rather for special occasions but I was looking at the internet shop with corsets (and they’re sold out AGAIN) so I felt like drawing one.
Hanna would wear sport bras under shirts unless for some more formal occasions because if I translate Howards body type + lever of training we’d get a muscly but quite curvy gal and it’s not so easy to find female shirts for that level of boobage covered in non-flatting bra (the shirt we meet Howard in is also a type of undershirt for him; though Michael would be able to wear it as a loose T-shirt XD)
A fanart of Knights Errant webcomic’s main character - Oswald Dytel.
Although I qualify it as speedpainting it wasn’t painted in one go; I started it long ago and thought I’d make a proper painting out of it sometime later. When I looked at it now I decided I like it slightly rough so I just fixed some details.
I like freckles.
I had really exhausting two weeks, physically and emotionally and I’m trying to get back the hang on how this draw thing works….
20: Childhood illnesses? Any interesting stories behind them?
He didn’t have any grave illness but he tended to get a lot of frequent health problems - colds, flu, throat infections etc. He was also a bit if a plumpish kid, even when he started doing martial arts in his early teens. During puberty he shot up and his body got stronger and he barely gets sick now; but deep inside he still understand how fragile body can be (this might be one of the reasons he pays attention to his diet and lifestyle - apart from smoking).
27: What is their biggest regret?
This is quite spoilerish…. Hmm, being the one who survived.
33: Concept of home and family?
His grandfather was a policeman and Howard is looking up to him very much.
He knows his family is able to go through difficult times so it feels like a safe place for him and he draws a lot of strength from them. He’s not very dependent on them; rather it’s like a safe island he knows is waiting for him if the ocean of life becomes overbearing.
46: If they were to fall in love, who (or what) is their ideal?
He thinks his ideal would be a very practical-thinking strong woman, not too small or too skinny (not that he haven’t slept with tiny women ;P), one that could manage both in physical fight and discussion.
49: Is this person afraid of dying? Why or why not?
He used to be afraid of dying until PLOT happened. He is definitely far from being keen on it now but accepts this is something that can happen much too soon in his line of work; maybe because somewhere deep he feels a bit that he unfairly survived and it will catch up with him at some point.
Well… I tried to write something following the history of Lawrence’s change - going out from his family home, being followed by Julien, dying and awaking as a vampire… The part when he’s coming home is not here (I might add it later). It’s pretty fun trying to show it in music playing with various instruments, harmony and slight dissonances; not sure if it works haha. I might switch Human!Lawrence parts to violin or viola (it’s cello now) but I need to find a nice soundfont for that - the violin I have sounds terrible.
I’m still learning to use the software (LMMS) so it’s pretty rough round the edges but I don’t know when I’ll be back to working on this (getting back to working on my webcomic from tomorrow) so I decided to post this version for now.
Fanart of Rayflo from Vassalord. When I was drawing it I got painfully aware how close his design (or at least my interpretation of it) is to Michael from >Hunch (there are some key differences but the general type is similar)… make of it what you may.
Vassalord is one of the most self-indulgent comics ever published. It’s… a slightly BDSM vampire gay love story which would scare Twilight and 50 shades of gray readers. I know a couple of vampire haters who love it. And while it “looks like porn but it isn’t porn*” it feels more dirty than actual hardcore porn that has porn in it (point in the matter: I wasn’t really vocal about liking it until I found other people who loved it). There are gays. And lesbians. And an android vampire hunter who is also a vampire. And a robotic dog. And a cat maid. And grumpy policemen, mafia, demons, crazy junkie mediums, fights, painful past, explosions, jumping from the plane with no parachute… Do I seem like I’m advertising it? (hint: I am. Join m,e Luke…)
Basically it’s a story where the author draw whatever caught her fancy and they somehow published it.
(pen and brushpen)
A little fanart for That Which Wills, a story I am a fan of which is a collaboration of a couple of people I am a fan of.
I’d write more but since they just started a preorder for the first book (which I already ordered)I think their own post for it will be both more informative and eloquent and also you should order it because it is well dam worth all the money.
I didn’t plan on drawing it. I was so elated that it’s finally happening that my warm-up doodle happened to be Liam (with bedroom eyes and a bed head. You do the math).
(pen, brushpen and photoshop tone in case anybody cares)
