It's fun to draw Bit in different outfits, but one of these days I need to draw her in true form - dressed in casual clothes and doing something besides looking pretty. She's supposed to be a badass - not my personal Barbie doll. ::

Anyway, was watching a video at young adult group and someone in the video had a Chinese shirt on, which inspired this. I think Bit's being paid to act as someone's date to a dinner party. The date's all she's doing, though! Bit is not a prostitute! In fact, she'd probably beat the crap out of somebody for suggesting such a thing.

This actually started out as traditional media. I scanned in the lineart and went to town. I meant to have some of my original inking lines visible, but it just looked tacky. Thus did the whole thing become digital.

I did have fun with it, though, and I'm pleased with the outcome. It isn't without issues, of course (like her face and arm being too long... ), but I can see where I'm improving in the realm of digital art.

Another instance where I sat down with my tablet "just to doodle", and about five hours later have something fully colored and cleaned up. This time, however, I actually spent more than five minutes on the background.

Anyway, inspired while watching "The Duchess" with Kohanna. The only good thing that came out of that movie was the awesome outfits (yes, I am a historical costume geek).

I don't usually go for the "super anime!" faces nowadays, but her head was too large so I figured I'd roll with it. This isn't based off an specific dress from the movie, but inspired by the ladies' costumes as a whole. And yes, I do like purple and dark turquoise together. :heart:

First time I've done digital hair highlights and not mostly hated them!

As of late I have been remembering that being an artist isn't all sunshine and rainbows. Sometimes it's frustrating and being a creative mind is more burdensome than anything. I'll be honest. Trying to create wipes me out lately.

An artist's pencil (or whatever else they may use for the purpose of making their work) is the outlet of their soul. Sometimes, however, using it isn't a painless process. That's what I was trying to get across here. Not self-destruction, but the fact that creating can really take its toll.

This was done with acrylic paint, which I haven't used in forever, and last time I did it was for a school assignment that I hated. Somehow I felt like paint would be a stronger medium here than my usual markers. It isn't the most realistic painting of a person I've done, but realism wasn't the point.

The face is hidden partly because it's hiding the artist. The world is frustrating and they don't want to deal with it. It also makes this less of a portrait, though it does express what I'm dealing with right now. Plus it adds to the sluggish, "defeated" pose. I also decided that hiding the face was for the best to avoid viewer biases based on style, be it anime, cartoon, or whatever else.

At first the splotches of red and blue were my desperate attempt to not waste pigment. After the fact, however, I decided that they work. They are a contrast to each other, giving the some frustrated energy. They also represent two negative emotions: Sadness and anger. Two things that can rise when an artist is frustrated.

...Wow. That was long.

I keep forgetting that this is done and I can actually upload it. :B Well, done in theory. If someone gives me a totally amazing suggestion for the background, I'll definitely fix it.

Anyway, for a webcomic idea that's constantly bouncing off the inner-walls of my brain. For the first time in years I have drawn and fully colored Kat's body-guard, Duke. Yep, inspired by and named after a certain cartoon duck.

I haven't been really going with the "royalty" background with Kat lately. That's more of a residual mary-sue factor from her early days as a Sonic fancharacter. But she's graduated from fancharacter school and I figured the princess thing fits in this story. She's not the future ruler, after all. Her older brother is the current king.

ANYWAY. Duke (grumpy as usual) and Kat having their photo taken. 8D

I haven't drawn (and finished) these two in a while, nor have I drawn a couple in a while, so I guess this was long over-due.

Jean Jacques-Mondo from Spriggan and my friend Kohanna's RP character, Aiko Kurosawa. Yep, we're doing an RP about Jean and his adorable little Japanese fiance. This isn't based on an occurrence in the RP, but maybe someday they'll go on a romantic vacation to a traditional Japanese home with one of those awesome gardens.

I realize that the rice paper doors should probably have more structure to them, but I would have probably ruined this picture trying to add all those insane little lines. Also, landscapes are not my strong point, but I think that one looks acceptable.

Jean's expressions is... weird. But aside from that I like it.

And now I have barely made the deadline for the DeviantArt MD:TAS club's monthly theme of couples (or something like that). Duke and Tanya, because I just recently decided they would be cute together.

Tanya is clearly baffled, not only confused as to who would leave her these things, but why they are using odd, human means to express some sort of affection. Fortunately for Duke, he is sneaky enough to not be noticed. :D

I got so lazy with this that all of the shading and the entire background were done in Photoshop. Don't judge me! D:

It's kinda dark because it's on HUGE paper and I had to photograph it with my camera. I did some adjusting in PSP 8, but I couldn't do much without messing up the drawing.

Done back in October 2008.

I like Storm Hawks. :D I have for quite some time, actually, just never did much to show it. So, predictably enough, I decided to draw Stork. This is actually my second try, and the outfit still isn't totally right but meh, I'm okay with that.

He's probably cowering at the fangirls about to maul him. Or the suggestion of a short cut. I'm not sure which. Both, maybe.

A recent picture. In fact, one I finished yesterday. And another Fanart 100 prompt for Spriggan, no less.

I think blue is a color that fits Jean's character well, but I didn't want to drown the picture in it. Instead I went the same route as my "Red" drawing and did gray scale with hints of the selected color.

I'll be the first to admit that Jean's legs are too thin, but that aside I rather like it. Especially his face and his hips.

14 prompts down, 86 to go!

The colors... they BURN.

Anyway, a hall neighbor in my building last semester had some Sailor Moon dvds. We watched one. This happened.

...And I actually don't hate it. Looking back I may have changed the angle her legs are at, but besides that I do like it.

Hey, at least it's not pink. D:

First off, let me assure everyone that this is not a "pairing" drawing in any way.

Second, since this is the first Mighty Ducks fanart I've posted here, I'm thinking that some explanation is in order.

I've been a Mighty Ducks fan since I was about ten (wow... almost twelve years ago!), and that's when I created Annie, the little dog there. She was very much a "Mary-Sue" when I created her, but now that I'm older and wiser she's... not.

Anyway, yes, that is a cast on Annie's leg. Probably broke it bouncing around and being hyper like I imagine she does. Or maybe on her first mission with the team. I don't think Duke carries her on most occasions. She is full grown after all (Yep, her species is small), and quite capable of walking. Except now she's probably too stubborn/forgetful to use crutches and won't go anywhere near a wheelchair, so Duke has opted to carry her for a bit.

Of course, she's not happy with being confined even if it does mean being carried, and now that she's seen something interesting she's probably been wiggling to the point where he's just going to give up and let her learn things the hard way.

Done in November but I still like it and hey, it has a background.

This is one piece that's going to be uploaded here before anywhere else. I'm not sure why I've been so why with it. Possibly because I've never posted a drawing of Jean's (from Spriggan)bare backside anywhere. But since I spent so long on it and it's my first full tablet drawing with a background,I really should put it up to be viewed.

So there you go. A naked Jean Jacques-Mondo. I wasn't sure if it really needed a "Mature" label, but better safe than having to re-upload later.

Sorta old.

I wanted to draw someone dancing, and beforehand I did several sketches while watching some Youtube videos of people doing various dances - waltz, belly dancing, and ballet. Well, this is based off the belly dancing sketch that I like the most.

This is really different for me, too. I really had to loosen up for this drawing, which was a great feeling. I also used a wider, brighter variety of color than normal.

This is actually a re-do of my previous attempt at the Fanart 100 prompt (Spriggan as the fandom), "Red".

At any rate, I feel that this one is a vast improvement, and for all the grief his hands and knife gave me, it had better be. But please forgive the possibility of the shading looking a bit odd. This was my first try with my gray scale brush pens.

Though I don't do a lot of fanart for it, I love Hellboy, especially the movies. The fact that Liz is pregnant in the second one made me squeal inside. After buying the movie and watching it many times, I couldn't resist drawing thing.

Yes, Red is huge. Totally didn't do that on purpose, but it works. I was going to be much lazier, but one of my friends pushed me into adding a background and everything, so kudos to her!

Okay, now I'm just feeling lazy, so you just get a copy/paste of the description from my DA submission:

Me too, buddy. Me too.

...Okay, explanation time.

I was doing a DA search for Rayman fanart and... honestly some of it blew me away. How do people take such a simple (but charming!) character and draw him with such... awesome detail?! Okay, I may have also been a tad annoyed with myself with the last Rayman fanart I did. Sure the Rabbid was cute but Rayman himself... needed work.

So I tried again. I like this one considerably more but still - there's some Rayman fanart out there that buries this.
