So. These are... yeah. Oldish. About two and a half months, I suppose. But all the same...

So. Some of you may well be familiar with my usual fancharacter, Chase the Cat.
Well. About two/three-ish months ago, Chasey here got one hell of a revamp.

Seriously. I practiced an anthro style to pull her out of the fandom world and make her... her own character, really. Free of the Sonicverse. And it required redesign, and lots of it. Including a whole change in background, though some of the original elements were kept, yadda yadda yadda...
Main point is, I have started drawing her this way. Oh, I still draw her in that Sonic-ish fancharacter style, but this anthro thing has definately grown on me.

And this one... well. This was drawn near the end of the school year, when I got my poor little heart broken by a crush who knew it all too well from the beginning of school, stalled an answer, then gave me one-- by starting to date a completely different girl.
Needless to say, Chase took a lot of the blows for me. That's what happens when you're an artist and need to share your miseries.
Also needless to say, I am a great deal better now. Happy again, and not with the self-esteem of a naked mole rat. But I still love how Chase's expression came out in this one. Yeahyeah~ <3

This is also one of my experiments with digital color, since I fail at it and all that jazz. But I like the way this went over. Switching the lineart layer to 'multiply' saves all the trouble. OMG. (D *squishes her amazing internet friends for being amazing and wiser than her*
And... yeah. I do think that's it. *loooong description lolerskates*

...I swear, this is the last piece of old art I'll upload! ;;

...well, of my fanart, anyway...
*SMACKED*

Okay. So. Moving on, anyone who checks out my gallery regurally should know these two by now. Silver and Blaze, two characters from Sonic the Hedgehog that I simply -adore-. It's... really just another picture of them being squishy. And floating. Inexplicably. ;

And yes, I am fully aware that Blaze is in gold undies. Bite me. *rates T for undies OMG*

Again, their hands are out of date. But the rest is just... wow. This was a step out of it's time, I'll tell ya. I didn't manage as natural a pose as those for a longlong time afterward.
Even if... y'know... they are floating inexplicably.

Ahnow... this one gave me crap to do. Apart from Silver's face starting out wrong almost from the get-go, which took a while to -notice- much less fix, their legs simply failed to work with me. Would -not- cooperate.

Luckily, I have awesome friends online with much more drawing experience than myself who were wonderful enough to lend a hand. <3<3<3

Hmm... what else.
...it's a bit more suggestive than I normally do. And it wasn't even meant to be that way. She's just in his lap, okay? ;; *rates it T just to be safe* >.>
Lovelove how it came out though. They look so squishy. (3 <3<3

Arg... I have the most annoying habit of uploading old work. @o;

Alas though... this was a fun one to color. I'm horribly proud of it really, despite my hands and legs being out of date and Blazey there lacking a mouth... ;;

But the coloring! Ohgod... @_@ That was way too much fun to do. Reallyreally. It was a real experiment too, what with adding the glowy prisma color... believe it or not? That's -chartruese-. Probably one of the ugliest colors in my set but... wow. It really added dimension. (3

So yes. Enjoy guys~ <3

Wow... okay. I really go a while between updating this thing, huh...? xD;

Anyway. For all you Sonic the Hedgehog people who still like and keep up with the new(ish) games, this is Blaze the Cat, a personal favorite character of mine.

...No, she's not normally dressed anything like that. The outfit was for fun. ^^;

But alas! Notice the pretty computer coloring! It's... really only my second time ever coloring digitally, and I'll tell you, I have to be in the right mood. Like, a masochist mood. Because coloring like this is a pain. T_T
But! This was fun, to say the least. I had trouble along the way with saving as a j-peg halfway through and ruining any cool effects I could have had on the red glowy things. But I did have fun with the glowies. You gotta give me that. <3

And... erm... the title comes from a song by the lesser-known band The Medic Droid. The song, "Fer Sure", is very much something I'd expect to hear at a rave. Fabulous beat. Even if it does drop a few f-bombs. ^^;

So... not much else to say here. >.> But yes, I know she's skinny. Just... enjoy the pretty kitty! :D

Two years ago. March 28th, to be exact. At thriteen years old, I was barely becoming interested in Sonic the Hedgehog and the style and characters and storylines. I became interested, in fact, to the point that I created a character: Chase the Cat. And on this day, she was given life on paper for the first time.

...that would be the drawing on the left.
Yeah.
Not too impressive.

I realized, March 28 2007, two years later, how much this character of mine had changed. Looks wise, personality wise. My own drawing style had dramatically improved.
To show this, I did a second-aniversary picture of Chase, scanned it in the computer, and Photoshoped it to that it stood as a landmark, next to the original, showing how far I've come.

...Yes, I'm very proud of my progress in two years. Hush.

Oh wow, it's been forever since I uploaded... ^^;
Anyway, in the time that I've been gone... I'll admit. I've become a stark-raving Silvaze (Silver/Blaze) fan. Not to the point where I can't see other pairings like Silver/Amy and SonBlaze and all that good stuff, just... Well, Sonic Next Gen made it for me. It turns out it wasn't quite as awful as I thought it would be. It actually took the games in a wonderful direction on some levels. Much more upbeat than the last couple games.
And SILVER. <3 He has stolen my heart. I thought he was going to be a complete Shadow ripoff... and he's not. He's adorkable. ^.^ And hence, he and Blaze just sort of... work together.
(Also turns out that he's not working for the devil or anything; in fact, all he wants to do is prevent the destruction of his world by STOPPING the Iblis Trigger. It's just that the info about WHO the Iblis Trigger was was false. So ha.)

Anyway, this is just something I did to work with poses and coloring. And Silver and Blaze, who I love as individual characters and as a pairing.

The end of Silver's story in SNG= WHYYYYYYYYYYY? ;O;
I love you Silveeeeeeeeeeer. <3

Okay, so it's not finished. Shoot me.
*SHOT'D!*
X.x;
Aaaaanyway, this is Thorne... he has this huge, crazy history behind him, but he's basically the keeper of dreams and reality. He exists in both the dream world and the real world, and he sees everything that is and is not.
There's more to the concept, but it's REALLY confusing... So I'm leaving it at that. ^^
Oh! And he likes Rachael. ^.^

"... and hopefully NOT come back."

Yup. That's Zion alrighty. ^^ He's a bit of a jerk to my char, Chase. (Cat/Chameleon war thingy... don't ask. -_-') He's often very serious about his job, but at the same time he has an ironic, cruel sense of humor toward everything. He's a little bit of a jokster when he wants to be, and he LOVES torturing Chase. T_T

So yeah. Liz LOVES this guy. Think Amy is to Sonic as Liz is to Zion. Yeah. >_>

ANYWAY, as for the character... Well. He's a weapons specialist. He and Liz have been associating and keeping in contact for years now. She makes the weapons, he uses them.
Also, he's a year younger than Liz. Which makes him... 3635? I think? @-@ Yeah. He was the soon-to-be-emperor of the Chameleon city when the Cat/Chameleon war started. Liz was his main general. ^.^ Ahem... so... that's why he's sorta charcol-ish colored. He was kept indoors where he had to take on more black color to stay warm. (Note: HE HATED BEING EMPEROR. He found the position restricting. The only thing he liked was his power. And his foster mother.)
Oh, yeah. Forgot to mention. He's not the REAL son of the emperor. Ziamette, the empress at the time, found him floating on the Nile and took him into her care. She and her husband could hardly eat dinner in the same room, much less sleep together and produce a child... so it all worked out for the better.
(According to Zack, Zion here is the son of Godzilla. You can interpret that as you like. I think he's crazy. ><)

So yeah. That's Zion in a nutshell. So yeah. ^_^

(ALSO, take GREAT NOTICE TO THIS PIC!!! This is the first design of Zion EVER that I'm HAPPY WITH! )

Elizabet Diana Ross... that's her full name. Her face speaks her whole personality. Happy and emotional. VERY much so. T_T
You wouldn't know it, but it's true. In my little wacked mind where the world might as well be ruled by mutated animals, Lizzy here is almost 4000 years old, and she DID invent gunpowder. What's more, nowadays she invents guns and other weaponry... and she's very good at it. She does not expect it to be used to hurt anyone however. If a terrorist stole one of her guns and used it to attack Los Angelos, her likey reaction would be akin to :

"NOOO! How could they?! This is not what Timmy was built for... it's not his purpose!!! *tears*"

Yes.... she is VERY strange...
She also has a special job on Tuesdays. She works for women's rights-- particurally mutated animal rights. You see, in this world, the male animals don't have to wear clothes... but women do. Liz finds this terribly unfair, and every Tuesday, puts on her birthday suit and protests, screaming "FREEEEEEEEEEDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!"

So yes. I love the pants. They are my favortive part of the drawing, besides the character herself.
