So like about a month ago (maybe more? I dunno man) I found out that houseofz was attending the same college as me and like…I might have completely freaked out cause I thought she lived in America like everyone else AND I JUST WAS NOT PREPARED TO MEET HER IN PERSON SO WHEN I DID MEET HER FOR THE FIRST TIME, I MIGHT HAVE HID BEHIND A PILLAR WITH MY FACE IN MY HANDS. I DON’ T KNOW WHAT POINT IT IS I’M TRYING TO MAKE BUT TODAY SHE GAVE ME PRINTS OF HER ART AND I DIED. I died.
So, this was unexpected. I didn’t mean for this to get so freaky, but I think I succeeded in directing it as far from fluff as I’m ever going to get. I imagine this as Derek having a bit of a psychedelic nightmare, that probably isn’t a nightmare at all. Possessed!Stiles seems to be going around, so I’ll jump on that bandwagon.
Paintball Stiles For Kaiyarrr. Anyone who’s tried paintball knows that if you aren’t wearing the proper protection gear and heavily padded clothes, you’re going to end up with bruises EVERYWHERE! It hurts like fuck, but it’s fuuuunnnnn!
A continuation from Stiles, here. I’ll be using them both for this mirror shard thing I have planned, which could potentially be awesome if I can pull it off /o\
So trying to use a bit of colour… clearly that’s going places I’m just not ready to face yet, but I’ve at least decided that I’m going to change Derek to Alpha red. And give him stubble. He just doesn’t look right without it. No, no he doesn’t.
Turns out I finished it anyway. I’m not too happy with this one, but considering it was all done one one layer, I think I did alright. /o\
I went to see The Hobbit yesterday and I’m having so many feelings about Thorin, it’s quite disturbing. I went in to that cinema, convinced that I was not going to ship anyone in that movie… and I failed, horribly! I need a lot of hugging Thorin/Bilbo fics and all the brotp fic about Fili and Kili messing shit up and just being a pair of sassy dwarf bros! (While everyone’s been talking about Kili, I find myself drawn a lot more to Fili. I mean, look at that sassy beard and the platted locks of blond hair! Holy mother, how are you so pretty?) Thorin and Dwalin brotp as well! So many things!
Just a quick 10 min sketch in response to the latest TW episode ‘Motel California’ (3.06). Scott’s going to be watching the Star Wars trilogies. Both of them. Because Stiles is the sort of bro who would go through watching episodes I, II and III again. But only for Scott.
Sorry for the shitty anatomy guys, didn’t feel like using references today.
Finishing the concept sketch for the last of my Sterek Campaign auctions.
Derek and Stiles were obviously easy and more or less painless, but Laura turned out to be a bit of a challenge. It’s been forever since I’ve taken a serious dig at drawing women and I’m surprised at how out-of-touch I am with feminine features. It took me forever to actually find and correct the mistakes I was making. I was so excited to draw Laura, but I’m getting all frustrated and ahahahaha what is boobs?!
The Hobbit only premiered today in Australia and all the tickets in my area have been sold out, so I haven’t even seen it yet.
TRYING to draw Thorin… but it’s not going all that well. Still a WIP, but I thought I might post a preview since all the trouble I’m having with this is making it very likely that I’ll ragequit at some point and abandon it. /o\ It might not help that I’m drawing it all on one layer, but I want to see if I can do it.
I usually don’t do commissions, but now’s your chance to have me at your service! If you’d like to have me draw something for you, you can go bid on artists here (I am listed under ‘H’ for House of Z) from Dec 17 at 6pm EST. I have offered three separate commissions at fairly low prices, though I’m hoping people will be generous since it’s for charity. None of this money goes to the artists, all funds are donated to Wolf Haven International. Everyone working on this project is donating their efforts and time for free. Hopefully we’ll be able to raise some money for the wolves and give them the proper care they need. So join in!
(Even if you do not have a LJ account, you can bid anonymously as long as you remember to leave your email in the bid so the mods can contact you for payment. If left out, the bid is not valid.)
