I just started watching 'Cowboy Bebop' now that they're showing it again from the beginning, and I just got a new set of Prismacolor markers for me B-day ^^ (Yeee!), so I thought I'd try them out by doing a practice-type drawing of Faye. Keep in mind I did this without any real reference pictures, so it's not perfect, and the bottom isn't really drawn in, but like I said, this was just to test out my markers pretty much.
She looks like she's going, "Pucker up, Baby." ^_~

This is another picture that I already uploaded a long time ago, only the first version of this I did was uncolored. Well, someone suggested I color it, cause they thought it would look really nice, so I thought, "Alrighty," and got to work on it. I left it unfinished for a real long time, but just recently I found it and decided to complete it, especially since now with Photoshop I knew I could add a nice BG to it.
Man, I haven't worked with colored pencil for such a long time, it was great seeing if I still had the talent for them. I had everything done except Pluto's hair, which I just did tonite, so it turned out pretty good I think. The background is pretty simple, but I really love it. It compliments Pluto nicely ^-^

I uploaded this drawing some time ago, but I wasn't satisfied with it because it didn't have a background, but now that I've got Photoshop *big smile ^____^* I went ahead and finally made one, and now I really REALLY love this picture ^^ I think the BG makes it look a bazillion times better.
Once more, for those who aren't familiar with BSSM, this is Sailor Neptune doing her Deep Submerge attack, or at least my version of it. I still like the colors on this ^-^

*Blushes really really huge* ^^ Okay, I'll admit it... I LOVE these guys. In fact I'm absolutely crazy about them! They're without question my favorite band in the history of... uh... history! Yeah.
If you don't have a clue who they are, maybe you will after I sing this little tune: *Start music* 'I'm Blue da ba dee da ba die da ba dee da ba die...' Uh-huh, they're the guys who did 'Blue,' that inescapable song from a few years back, and I've been their biggest fan ever since ^^ And for those of you who just HATE that song or hated 'Europop', you still might like their new music on their second album, 'Contact'. Most of it's a LOT different from their old stuff, and sounds totally amazing (I challenge ANYONE to listen to 'King of Lullaby' and NOT be blown away!! ^^) Listening to them always cheers me up no matter what mood I'm in. Sadly, 'Contact' still hasn't been released in the US, but I managed to snag up the import ^^ It was so worth it.
Anyhoo, from left to right is Gabry Ponte (the DJ, and a MAJOR freakin' hottie ^-^), Jeffrey Jey (the vocalist), and Maurizio Lobina (the keyboardist, and by the way I think the piano he does in 'Blue' is the best part of the song). Awww, they're so cute, especially in person ^_~ heehee. Jeffrey is so funny. 'Course, this is what they'd look like as cartoon characters, but I still think they're hot no matter what form they're in ^^
*blushes even harder* Hee *^^* Please please please don't laugh at me, I just can't help it. I love Eiffel 65!! lol And not just for their music. They're always so put together, and they carry themselves so well. And every music group should follow their example if you ask me, because they never treat their fans like annoyances. They always make time for them and never act like Superstars, and that is something a lot of music groups forget when they get famous. ~sigh~ If I could only live in Italy... -_-
But um, yeah, I just adore these three for so many reasons ^_^ Sorry for all the shameless plugs and stuff, but I think they deserve some good stuff said about them, and I just love 'em to death ^^ And one little side note: I LOVE how Gabry's pants turned out. And one other little side note: Thanks a mil to Diane Olexa for showing me how to do this HTML stuff ^_~

I know you're all thinking: "HUH!?!?!?" 0_o Taryn, one of the biggest self-proclaimed DATR haters on the web... drew THIS!?!? The world must be ending, right? Trust me, even I never in my life expected to see something like this from me, but this bit o' Dib/Tak romance is from a scene in a fanfic I read called Diberella, a parody of, what else, Cinderella, by Sinne. That still doesn't explain why I'd draw something that goes against every fiber in my being though, right? Well, you can thank Sinne for that, since in her fanfic the way she wrote Tak was just so... cute! I actually liked Tak in this fanfic, lord help me. She just seemed so sweet and adorable ^^ OOC, yes, but I like her better the way Sinne made her (if you can't understand why, go read the story and the reviews I left for it), and in the story, she and Dib DID actually make a really cute couple, and that's what I tried to capture with this picture. No, I'm not converting. I STILL do not like DATR, but just for a moment, I thought, "What the hell." ^^
Another, secondary, reason I did this drawing was because of something Cartman's Girl said. She drew a ZADR picture a while ago even though she doesn't like Zim/Dib romance, and she said that even though she isn't into it, she felt she should consider everyone's views, and that ZADR fans' beliefs ought to be respected just like everyone elses. I thought this was an extremely classy thing to do, so I, trying to be as open-minded, wanted to do this just to see how it felt and how I would handle something like this, and just to do something for the DATR fans, since even if I personally don't care for it, the people who do shouldn't be excluded. Just don't get used to seeing any more like this from me ^_~ but for what it's worth, it was actually fun trying something different and completely against the grain.

Or something like that... I can't remember the exact number of renditions of myself I've tried to do, so I'll say five, cause I like five. Yeeahahaha ^^ Well I don't usually look this cute, but this is supposed to be me, Anime style, though only the face is Anime, the body is more realistic I guess, and lookie-- I'm smiling all happy-like! ^_^ And it's cause of all you guys here on Side 7. I still wish there were a way for me to thank everyone individually who tried to cheer me up in some way other than just saying 'thank you', especially those of you who sent me pictures and stuff, but it really meant so much to me and made me feel so great, and I just wanted to show my thanks one more time.
I also have something to announce: Eye on Spectra is a new homepage I created since I always have things I want to announce to people who are expecting requests/trades, or just people who want to know some things, and since trying to announce things on Side 7 or answering a hundred individual e-mails can get kinda irritating, I thought I'd just make a page that people could check up on. So that's there if you're interested, and I'll have updates on there soon about:
-certain peoples' requests/trades
-the Dib fangirl picture
-and why I haven't updated my fanfiction in forever
Okay, now back to the picture... This is probably the first time I REALLY used Photoshop to consciously fix up a drawing. The shading is still all done in Paint, but I used PS to blur the edges and make stuff look smoother, and the special effects of course. And the BG I just love ^_^ I just wish I could really be in a place like that. And the pose I came up with totally in my head, so I'm kinda proud of how nice that came out. I really have that shirt too, from Hot Topic, c'ept on the front there's a cool, creepy Queen of Hearts picture instead of a heart, but that'd have been too hard to draw here. Like y'all really needed to know that, I'm sure : P Meh...

Nothing too amazing. Just wondered one day what Dib might look like if he were a little bit taller. Not necessarilly older, just, you know, taller, and a little more proportionate so his head don't look so big ^^
I don't know what's with the pose. I guess he's just sort of examining his new bod. I think he likes the fact that his head looks smaller ^-^ He so kyoot.

YES! I'm BACK!!! ^_^ This pic proudly marks my return to the art world! And if you're happy about this, you have Tez to thank ^^ If it weren't for her I'd have never gotten Photoshop, and therefore not have been able to do anymore CG artwork. You can also thank her if you're one of those people expecting a request/trade from me, cause now that I have this great art program I can get to work on those again. AND getting Photoshop REALLY helped cheer me up and got me out of my little funk, so I just don't know what I'd have done without her. *Claps* You're the greatest, Tez ^_^
As for the drawing, well, you all know Johnny by now ^^ and he looks pretty surprised to be having Esme doing that nose beep thing to him. I don't know exactly where the idea for this came from, but I think it turned out pretty cute. By the way... Esme loves Johnny almost as much as I do ^_^

Oh Where to start, where to start... Man, I was just... completely... blown away by all your wonderful, sweet, incredible, supportive, and uplifting comments on my last picture :*) I don't know how to begin thanking you all. I never thought I could have so many great people who would take the time to try to make me feel better ^-^ I want all of you to know just how much it meant to me, and thanks to all of you I'm feeling a thousand times happier ^^
I logged on last night planning on going through some much neglected e-mails (which I know a few of you are included in, and I'm very very sorry if you've written me and not gotten a relpy yet -_-), and I really didn't expect to find many comments on that picture, maybe just a few from some close friends of mine. I was shocked to find just how many comments I got! (Especially since it wasn't even an Invader ZIM related pic lol ^^) I had so many, some from friends, some from strangers, but all supportive and so incredibly sweet and full o' good stuff ^^ A lot of you offered me advice, kind words, compliments, and a few of you offered to draw me something to make me feel better (and a few already did! ^_^), and I got a surprising amount of cookies lol (thanks, they were all yummy, by the way). I was so touched by everyone's concern. I'm sorry I went and got all angsty and depressed on everyone and if I made any of my friends worry, but I'm feeling a lot better now just from reading all those wonderful comments ^^ I sat and read every one, and of course ended up in tears again (heh, you know me ^~^;;), but it was because I couldn't believe how many awesome people there are out there who'd care that much about me, even if they didn't know me personally. And even though a lot of you have your own problems, you STILL took the time to try and ease mine. I simply do not deserve people like you ^_^ ~sniff~ Aw man, I think I'm gonna cry again :*)
I'm feeling better now I think, and a lot of that is due to all of you ^-^ Some days I still hate my job, but my mom (who is a lot cooler than I gave her credit for, and I'm sorry about that) insisted I take my last paycheck and blow it on a shopping spree to make myself feel better, so that was kinda nice ^_^ I gots me a nifty Matrix coat from HotTopic whee! ^^ And some spiffy glasses. And I guess it's not too horribly bad to be working. At least I get some money, and I'm gonna try to get a better job since they're hiring for X-mas soon. And even though most of my stuff got deleted, everything I had (fics, pictures, what-not) was mostly saved to disks or on Side 7 or FF.Net. And now thanks to Tez (who I cannot even BEGIN to show my gratitude to), I should be getting Photoshop 7 soon, so I can start working on pictures and requests again. As you can see, I still have MS Paint, so I just wanted to do a little something as an excuse to say thanks to all those who commented on my last pic. You all keep me going, and I can't tell you how much it means to me that you all like my artwork so much and that you really think I can make it into the professionals someday. Everytime I doubt myself, you're all there to make me feel, in a word, special, like my dumb little fanart and doodles and made-up characters really are something to be proud of, and I couldn't be more honored to recieve all your support and nice comments constantly on all my pictures ^-^
Man, this is sappy, eh? LOL ^^ But I mean every word of it, and I'd like to hug each and every one of you til yer brain meats leek out, but since I can't, I'll just leave that to GIR here ^_^ I could go all night, just thanking the hell out of everyone, but I'm sure there are bandwidth limits on this site lol So I want to say thank you sosososososoSO much to everyone and you guys are all just so incredibly awesome ^^ Thank you all for caring, you peeps ROCK!!!!!

It's just been one of those months. Things are just not going well in my life at the moment, and it's times like this that I just wish I could have someone hold me while I cry, and let it all out until their shirt is totally drenched. Crying is all I seem to do lately. When I'm driving, when I'm at work, when I'm in my room, just about anytime I think no one's looking. And for no reason at all, nothing even sets me off. It's pretty pathetic. Hell, I think I'm about to cry right now. I hate my job, my life is going nowhere, and I feel like no one in the world cares at all about anything I do. And just when things couldn't get ANY worse, our computer had to be reset, so all my art, fanfics, writing, pictures, and art programs... Gone. Everything I've worked so hard on completely deleted. Great, huh? And with all my art programs gone, I can't do any new CG pictures. I tried to get them back too, but big fat surprise, I couldn't re-download them. Gee, the world sure is a peachy place, idn't it?
I just needed someone to cry on, and anyone who knows my art knows that the guy in the picture is Johnny Grey, a character I created. When I made him up, I made him to really be my ideal guy, so who better to get a hug from when I'm feeling down? Too bad there's no one in REAL life who gives a rat. I have to settle for a guy I created in my imagination.
I'm sorry everyone -_- I didn't even want to mention this, but I thought I might feel better if I got it all out. Can't say I feel better, just kind of embarrassed. I don't know, I just thought maybe all of you should know -_-*
Just lately however, a good thing DID happen... my amazing, wonderful, incredible, awesomely fantastical friend, Tez aka. Charla Andrus offered to send me Photoshop 7 on CD. So once I figure out how to work that, I'll get working on requests/trades again. I thought I'd have to retire from doing Invader ZIM fanart and requests and stuff, and honestly, I this close to posting the next picture on Side 7 and announcing it as my last, at least til I got a new CG-ing program. Thank whatever ultimate power lies out there for Tez, and I don't know how in the world I'll ever even begin to thank her ^^ Still, until then, all you who're expecting art trades/requests from me will have to be even more patient, and not just cause of that, but I've got a crappy, misery-inducing job now, so I've got even less time to sit and draw. I appologize greatly for making everyone wait so long, and I just want to thank everyone who likes my art and encourages me to keep going with it and comments on my pics all the time. You make me feel like maybe my life ISN'T worth nothing.

Lately, ever since I read the new chapter to 'A Room With a Muse' by Flipside, damn freaking fantastic fic by the way, I've been doing tons of drawings of my muse, Nails. She's my only REAL fancharacter to date that's appeared in a ZIM fic, and now I've come to think of her as a sort of personal art mascot, so she's rather special to me. I thought this pic up as sort of a little tribute to the muse in general, cause where would we here on Side 7 be with out them?
Oh, and if you don't know what a Muse is, go read Flipside's fanfic. This should make a lot more sense after you do. What the hey, just go read it anyway, it's an awesome fic ^^

Yo, listen up, here's the story... Now anyone who's familiar with my pictures and visits my archive a lot knows that I just really really do not like Tak. And YET(!!!) they also know that I keep drawing all these pictures of her!! I mean, you'd think I was her biggest fan the way I crank out the Tak fanart, and believe me, this could not be further from the truth. So why, you ask, would someone spend their time drawing all these pictures of a character they really don't care for? Hell, I wondered this myself and puzzled over it quite a bit, but after reading the new chapter in Flipside's ZIM fanfic, 'A Room With a Muse' I got this idea, and now I think I finally figured it out, and... IT'S ALL NAILS'S FAULT!! Anyone who's sifted through my archive ALSO knows that Nails is my muse that lives in my head and presides over all my artwork. And now I'm positive that SHE'S the one behind this Tak-drawing obsession of mine. It certainly would explain why I draw so much of her, even though I personally can't stand her. Either Nails actually LIKES Tak, or she's just doing it to torture me.
Well anyway, I thought I'd draw this little comic to sort of illustrate that on-going battle between Nails and me when it comes to drawing the Tak art.
Oh yeah, don't you love her little stuffed Godzilla? ^^ She likes Godzilla. And Cherry Slushies.
*Dusts off her hands* Well, that wraps up THAT mystery. Now to figure out who's been haunting that old, abandoned amusement park. TO THE MYSTERY MACHINE!!!

~Sigh~ Ain't it the truth? Well, at least in my case it is, but it's soooo cute in Dib and Web's ^^
Web has the adorable habit of grabbing Dib by the collar and pulling him around instead of just asking him to come with her. It's one of the things I love about her, so I thought I'd draw it up as a little gift for Implosion. By the way, go read the fic that inspired this and all my other Dib/Web pix. Tis awesome ^-^

Rejoice, for I think I've finally mastered that hair of hers! ^^
Okay, I think I may have been a bit hard on Tak last time. I don't HATE her, I'm not out to become the Anti-Tak, and I don't wanna start a 'We Hate TAK' club or anything. Just to me, she doesn't live up to all her hype, that's all. I think I was in a snit that night or something and just took it out on her, and though I still stick by my convictions, I perhaps shouldn't have slammed Tak so hard. But thanks commentors, for proving to me how very mature some people can be in letting others express their opinions ^-^ You're some good peeps. And even the people who like Tak were nice about letting me rant, so thanks to you all. I respect your opinions also, so for those same Tak fans here she is in all her hideousness ^-^

An older Anime but one of my faves, this is A-ko from 'Project A-ko' doing that classic "Peace" pose that pretty much all Anime characters seem to strike at one point or another. I kind of had Steve Ressel (the director of 'ZIM') in mind when I was drawing this, cause I asked him what some of his artistic influences were, and he named 'Project A-ko' as one of them. I just found that so cool since that's always been one of my favorite Anime movies, and that set me off to do some drawing. So I'm gonna send this to him as sort of a 'thank you' for being nice enough to answer all my e-mails and answering all my questions and stuff ^_^ I'll probably add a little message or something first though.
Something I'd like to mention, and it may sound strange, but I think I'm getting pretty good at drawing the bottoms of shoes. Yep, told you it was strange 0_o but come on, shoes are hard to draw!! I dunno, I just like how hers came out.
"Peace, Baby!" ^_~

Well, how's THIS for different? ^-^ I've deviated completely from my usual style of drawing to bring you this overload of Zimmy cuteness! It's the IZ characters done in an overly simplified, super chibi-type, almost child-like style. And the ironic thing is it's actually HARDER to draw them this way when you're used to putting in a lot of detail into your pictures.
My favorite on here would have to be Gaz, but even I have to admit the Chibi-Tak looks plain adorable ^^ Dib... well that just goes without saying ^-^ and I could just hug Zimmy! He so darling! I think GIR turned out a little funny, but he's still cute looking ^^
I didn't know whether I wanted to post them in color or in black and white, so me being the indecisive basket case that I am, I did both. The colored versions are more or less next to their B&W counterparts.
Oh the cuteness... ^-^ hee hee

I've been doing quite a few of these romanticish type pictures lately, but, I dunno, I like doin' em ^-^ especially when it's my favorite little couple, Dib and Gretchen.
You can make up your own interpretation of what's going on here, since I started drawing it without really having a set scenerio in mind. But it may end up becoming a scene from the fanfic I eventually plan to write. My interpretation is that Dib invited Gretch over to his house, and the two spent all night just sitting up in his room talking, and eventually she just fell asleep on his lap. Awww ^^ I love these two together so much ^-^
Let me just point out how happy I am with the way Dib's bedroom came out. It's really tough to draw, and I still don't have everything 100% perfect, but interiors and backgrounds never were my strongpoint. I still love how it looks though ^^ one of my nicer attempts at a BG.

This is the second half of my art trade with Kelly Marie. It's her fancharacter, Zimma, with Purple and their family. On the far left is Cobalt, Purple and Zimma's first born son, then on Purple's lap is Pira, Zimma's SIR (I love Pira ^-^ She's so cute!). Then on the far right is Miles (he and Cobalt are twins by the way).
I can't tell you how hard it was deciding which colors to make Zimma's dress. I went through about ten different color combos before I finally settled on this. And also, it's really tricky drawing Purple happy for some reason. Still, I had fun drawing this and think I may do some more Irken-geared fanart in the future.
I hope you like this, Kelly ^_^ It was great doing business with you, we should do another trade sometime.

For reasons unknown I've recently started drawing Gaz a lot, and I think that's a good thing. I don't draw nearly enough of her. Funny thing is, after I watched the 'Tak' episode, I immediately disliked Tak, but oddly enough I found myself liking Gaz a whole lot more. Weird, huh? I never payed much attention to her on the show before, but now I really like her.
I drew this Gaz according to my own tastes, so I guess you'd consider it stylized. As for the pose I have no idea why I had her doing that, but it looks like she's telling some pathetic gamer wannabe to kiss the dirt and bow to the one true Game Queen, so I think it works ^^

After reading what is probably the best Invader Zim parody/musical fanfic ever written, I absolutely HAD to draw some fanart based on it ^_^ So, Nadine, this is dedicated to you for writing one of the funniest, cutest, cleverest, most wonderful fics I've ever read.
The story is basically The Wizard of Oz crossed with the IZ cast, and being a long time 'Oz' fan and a die-hard Zim fan this was just the perfect story for me. It was written just incredibly, and it was SOOO funny (the letters LOL have never rung so true as when I was reading it ^^). I think the biggest kick I got out of that fic was just picturing Zim, Gaz, GIR, and Dib singing the songs (which, by the way, were adapted so amazingly well to the characters). If ever there was a fic I wish could be made into an actual episode, this is one of the tops on my list. I very highly recommend reading this fanfic. Sorry, I just can't stop gushing ^_^ I just LOVED this story!
Anywayz, this is the scene where Dib, Gaz, and GIR meet up with Lion Zim for the first time. I improvised a few bits of dialogue from the actual fic and added a few lines I thought were funny. The BG is alright. I'm not to happy with the road (which is gray in the fic by the way, so yes it's supposed to look like that), but I'm very pleased with how the characters all turned out.
And aren't Dib's ruby slippers just darling? ^^ Dey so sparkly, heehee.
