A brief comic I did of a plot point I had in mind for the D&D campaign for the Voltron D&D AU. Those who’ve played D&D before and know how healing spells work can probably tell what’s going on right right away, but I won;t spoil what’s going on for those who don’t.
I had a lot of fun with colors and lighting while working on this, and I’m really happy with how it turned out. It’s been a while since I did a full colored comic, so it was nice to practice with something small and self contained like this.
I may also give an actual backstory for how Matt and Shiro lost that bard in their last campaign one day, too. Just cuz I have a funny scenario for what could’ve happened in my head. Maybe one day…

Today I asked @ufficiosulretro why her Gabe always had red underwear and she dared me to write a ficlet about it.
So this is it, my love letter to Irene’s red briefs and converse.

hope you enjoyed tonight’s episode, which included our introduction to the powerful & business savvy Cosma!!
i was given the chance to create her design based on a sketch Geneva Hodgson did during a writing exercise from before i joined the show. i changed her quite a bit but tried to keep the overall space-y vibe. i was going for a character you’d see in an episode of Star Trek: TOS, which makes sense because she’s voiced by the incredible Marina Sirtis!
Brandon Wu handled the final design for Cosma and Kali Ciesemier figured out her final color palette! i’m really happy with how she came out, and i hope she’ll make an appearance again soon!
Hello friend! Although I've been practicing in digital art for almost 3 years, I'm never completely satisfied by the result of my works. I usually never like the coloring. And from what I've seen you have the most unique and beautiful coloring style. So, I wanted to ask you, how did you find it? How did you expirement and settled in this style? Thank you for your time!
!!!! Thank you so much! ;v;
We’ll start with ygo !! because everything else before that is Dark Past and absolutely terrifying Never Again
early 2015, I used to try doing semirealistic art because artists like jiyu-kaze, artgerm, and sakimichan the last piece took probably 2 weeks???? it was painful lmao
I used to do the thing where you painted everything in grayscale first and then used a bunch of layer modes to layer colors on top, inspired by this, and it carried over to my tg art. it would take maybe long time to finish anything because I didn’t really know how to use it correctly.
Then my style started off being inspired by sui-zakki (the author of tg), especially these pieces x, x, x
I switched to using base colors after a while and tried to paint the way ishida did. I really liked the way that his art wasn’t exactly smooth?? or that you could still see the edges of each color next to each other… the colors looked really sharp and abstract. You could say this is the start of the style I have right now <: Along with base colors, I used a lot of lumi & shade layers to add highlights and shadows. My backgrounds were usually a lot softer and sort of random at the time (I think you can see my style improvement best through the way I drew/colored my backgrounds ‘v’ )
Around 2016ish, the colors I used were lighter because I used less lumi & shade and used more on overlay and multiply layers (this is what I do now) or by coloring with only changes in opacity (this was mostly influenced by ammeja). There’s the prominent geometric edges or whatever in my colors because I started using a more square-ish brush for everything and I really liked how it looked when the colors weren’t seamlessly blended together. (the victor in the center was my first yoi fan art, he looks so different now asjdfjgjgjgjf :’> )
I color in a more blocky/geometric style, and instead of painting my pieces and smoothing them out like the ones above, I just stuck with sketches/lineart (this old tg piece is the one that got me to stick to lineart). My coloring was mainly influenced by barachan, lanxin, and seventypercentethanol, and their pieces like x, x, x yahoberries (I love her art so much you don’t understand) influenced my blue/white outlines as well as the stray blob of colors that I sometimes don’t erase around my art
I really like crystal/gem-looking colors, and having geometric shapes as highlights or shades looked pretty cool too, so that’s how my style happened <3
when I was 5 I asked my mom for grapefruit juice because it was pink and I loved the color pink. my mom tried to warn me but I persisted so she really did buy it. when we got home and I tried it for the first time it was awful. how could something pink be so bad? that was the highest level of betrayal I have ever experienced and I don’t remember what the point of this post was or why I remembered this in the first place but anyway I do not like grapefruits
I really, really enjoyed this scene from the first movie! It’s so cute watching Kagome cook! And I LOVE the whole familial interaction, especialy when she deters her Grandpa’s hands away from the food haha ♥ Bet she is the cutest housewife in the whole village *cough cough*.
How long did it take you to design ink? Did you scrap any designs? If so can you show us them?
Well, truth about Ink is something I found out like, two days ago? Is that I actually inspired myself from someone’s OC without realizing it, and I just found their OC again one year later. XD I contacted them and explained the issue and they said it was totally fine. It was a matter of color palette and the pants design, but it’s all cleared up so I’m relieved o/
As for creating the design, well I did go through different phases for Ink but not alot, maybe three. First try was this doodle:
Then the second was the final design, but with a few colors different, unfortunately I don’t have it. But yeah. Usually it really doesn’t take me a lot of tries to design a character because I think them over before drawing them o/
Colony Vs. The Tax Evaders for Freedom and Justice
This fills the tentacle square on my bingo card. Challenger @rose-on-the-mountain, who is also responsible for the Tax Evaders.
I’m not sure if this will actually fit into the Happy Lights ‘verse, or if it’s just a fun sort of what-if scenario, but I hope you enjoy it!
“They call themselves The Tax Evaders for Freedom and
Justice,” Steve explained. He rubbed at the center of his forehead. “They’re
registered as a church.”
“That is a joke,” Tony insisted. “There’s no way that is
actually not a joke.”
Steve shrugged helplessly. “That’s what the file says. They’ve
recruited some B-list villains including… The Kangaroo, Asbestos Lady, and…
Flag Smasher?” He was miserable just reading the names and pushed his tablet
away so he could put his face in his palm.
“Wow,” Clint said, “You are a massive troll, Cap, but I don’t
think even you could troll this hard.
Why are we getting called for this
one? Isn’t this something that the cops can handle? Or, you know… the local
“We don’t really have anything better to do at the moment,”
Steve pointed out, “And it would be a good training exercise for our newest
The colony didn’t quite understand the point of chairs, but
it was trying to imitate its human colony members. Several of the larger
tentacles were coiled around the empty chair at the briefing table, and the
rest were spread out over and around the table to keep limbs wrapped around
their humans. It was a small subcolony of only forty-seven members who had come
back with ‘Steve Colony’ after their last trip to the colony homeworld, and
looked intent on setting up a permanent colony presence.
“Can’t we just sic the IRS on them? I mean…The Church of the
Tax Evaders for Freedom and Justice. Really,” Clint persisted.
Think of it like a
team building exercise, Tony suggested, and the colony lit up gold at his
mental voice. I have new arrows for you
to try out.
Sold! the colony repeated,
flickering through a quick rainbow of colors, and then asked, Sold?
The colony did not understand currency, and the last time
Tony had tried to explain the concepts of buying and selling, they’d ended up
in a circular loop of Why? for most
of the night. About the only thing the colony had been attracted to during the
conversation was Tony unleashing financial ‘logic’ into the colony mindspace. It
was a good thing they weren’t interested in using the colony’s understanding of
math to their own benefit, because they could just about take over the world
with only minimal effort and the colony’s help.
Let’s not start that
conversation again, Bruce pleaded. “Asbestos Lady?”
Steve checked the notes. He grimaced, but offered, “Apparently
“And dying of asbestos poisoning?” Sam guessed. His chair
was conspicuously tentacle-free, but he had his head propped up on one fist and
was casually petting the magenta tentacle that had wrapped around his water
glass, the end periscoped up to eye level and nuzzling against his fingers. It flickered
gold and the colony was suffused with a definite sense of smugness at the
attention. “Has the colony been cleared to leave the tower?”
“Technically or theoretically?” Tony asked innocently. He
was completely bound to his chair by a dozen thick loops and being towed around
the table at the colony’s leisure.
Sam hastily held up a hand. “I don’t even want to know.
Plausible deniability is a thing.”
