I watched Game Grumps’ playthrough of FireRed and, lacking all other inspiration, I then did some quick Pokémon AU things, starring my characters. Just to draw something

So. Here’s a lunch drawing of Jasper with some sort of Milotic (I think they’re very pretty) and Tove being all psychic with Unowns spelling her name. Both characters are mine.

I put some greys and emoticons on my lunch sketches from this week. Didn’t have the energy to do anything more exiting than faces.

From left to right, top to bottom: Lisp, Martin, Jasper, Jesse, Nima, Tove, Alex, Jona, Aaron, Ester, Jonathan, Silly/Aurora, Gallamore, Khelán

I like The Last Airbender; it’s nice, sometimes inspiring and one of the few things I’ve seen all episodes of (I rarely have the patience to watch things).
I also like to think about bending as the crazy H-bomb powered weapon it is. The style of AtlA doesn’t really allow for showing how horrible and chaotic I imagine those fights really are, so I made a more realistic (though not as dynamic…) interpretation of it. I also put my characters in it as to not get bored with the picture sooner than I did.

Never mind the background in the background. I am not good at environments. And never mind the water… <_< These things are on my practice list. 

Tove (water) and Jasper (fire) are mine.


If this ask was of a purely technical nature, the answer is that I vary, depending on what kind of picture it is. I’m not very impressed by the eyes I usually make; they mostly seem to consist of five lines or so. 

The thought process for them is more important to me. That way I can at least try to get a good variation and give each character their own snowflake look. Above is a very boiled down version of what goes on in my mind when I draw the eyes. I’m more sure about some characters than others…

The rest are mine.

(Yes, that’s me)


I made a lot of people! Forty-seven, to be precise, and they have been flipped over and over again so if something buttons the wrong way or a logotype is mirrored, that’s why. I’m sorry. 
   They’re all from the same world, thought different layers of it, and all are part of a project of mine and and xhakhal’s  (tag “Spinal”).
   Three of the pictures has logotypes (mine) in the top right corner and the people on those pictures are all involved in the company in question in one way or another.

Hi! You're such a great inspiration to me and I was wondering - how long have you been drawing to get to this point, where your art is so perfect and wonderful and OMG I LOVE IT SO MUCH T.T. Thank you if you'd answer :) (and another question - You drew mostly from life and observation or your imagination?)

First off – Thank you! That makes me very happy to read! <3

I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember, but I started on the “art road” I’m on now when I was fourteen; I’m twenty-four in about a month. 

And I draw… a little bit of both, I suppose? Mostly Imagination, I think, though I sometimes use anatomy-references (I should probably do it always). Almost all my pictures start off as something like “Hey, this RP was nice! Now I want to draw A standing on B’s shoulders!” and then the story goes something like this to begin with:

And that would be inspiration from a role playing scene + me knowing what the characters look like. Then an ugly sketch, less ugly sketch and so on and so forth… No reference (I really should’ve used it, though) or anything else for this one, as you can see… *ahem*

This is probably a repetition of what everyone already knows, but: It’s really difficult to do anything without inspiration, which you get from life, observation and others’ art, etc, etc. I have a few clothing, environment and people/portrait blogs on my dash and I’ve this hunch I’m not alone in having inspiration folders and tags… ;)

Have a nice day!
