A new pack! You can find some more of my recent stuff at my twitter! I usually upload my drawings there first (and then forget to put them here ) (yes, I’m going to spam my twi’ pretty much under every post)
And a few ancient refs (not really) on my US! and SF! versions of Sans are under the cut.
Okay, so because I have way too much time on my hand, I decided to compile a list of non-sexualized female video game protagonists, from oldest to newest, as a sort of follow up to that post I made that exploded in popularity.

As you can see, there’s a lot of characters here, with a good number of them ten years or older and some even 20+ years. That doesn’t even get to customizable “blank slate" characters from games like Fallout, Saints Row, or Elder Scrolls where you can make them as sexy or modest as you want. And of course, this is by no means a complete list; I like to think I know a lot about video games, but obviously I don’t know about literally every game in existence. Pretty sure I got all the dates right, but if I didn’t, feel free to correct.
You know what? Looking at this list makes me realize how little Tumblr talks about Resident Evil and Fatal Frame, two horror game series that have more than their fair share of non-sexualized female protagonists. In fact, a lot of horror games have them. And RE is a very well known and influential series, so you can’t exactly pull the "it’s just a cult classic” excuse on that one, as well as for Silent Hill 3. It just seems like whenever Tumblr talks about female characters in horror games, they always make it seem like they’re always Ashley-esque damsels, when that couldn’t be further from the truth. What’s up with that?
Anyways, I could also go on and on about awesome non-sexualized non-protagonist female characters like The Boss, Brigid Tenenbaum, Elanor Lamb, almost all the gals from Overwatch, Chun-Li, Rosalind Lutece, Liara T'soni, Yuna (yes, I know she’s sexualized in X-2, but I still love her to death even though I prefer her X characterization as I related to her more in that one), Celes, Zelda, Billie Lurk, and much more, but I’d probably be here forever if I did that. @danguy96, @unhappy-opinions, @takashi0, @vikinglumberjack, I hope I’m not being a bother, but I don’t suppose you could spread this around since you’re all mutual that spread my original post as well.
I'm sad you finished the Bokuroo week, you draw them so rarely now and I just miss my boys so much
anon please don’t try to guilt trip me into drawing more bokuro that’s kinda very rude I realize no one really reads tags so I’m gonna just say it here again - as I mentioned before, this period is really damn busy for me because for whatever reason all my fandoms and ships have decided to hold their ship weeks all together in the span of 20 days and I’m a sucker for this kind of events which means I wanna participate in everything and end up being unable to put actual effort in everything else for a while
THAT SAID how productive I am with a specific ship depends a lot on how much they’re appearing in the main story (currently in the bokuros’ case it’s a very pretty round zero), how responsive/respectful the fandom is when I do post about them (the bokuro fandom is amazing!!! Everyone around it that still keeps on trying to make it about other ships and turn my art into something it’s not supposed to be, not so much) and how much content for said ship I can consume through the fandom/how easily accessible it is (there’s very little content for bokuro in general and try and look for stuff in the tags it’s all about other ships/ot3s or ot4s/unrequited or past-relationship/tagged-but-only-as-brotp)
I really, really, really love that ship a whole damn lot still, trust me, but when I have so little inspiration coming from anything that could give it to me and at the same time I got other ships making me super creative, I’m naturally bound to produce less for it. I’m not abandoning it, I’m just asking you to be patient when my creativity doesn’t happen to be focused on them for a while
Hi guuuys! Me again ♥ Great news! Grouch and I got a new apartment that we’ll(including our kitty!) be able to live a lot more nicely in. Hurrah! However I’m a bit short on funds right now as we’re still paying our current rent, and we need to make our first payment for the new one ASAP.
TL;DR, I’m adding more slots to my commission orders because I need to dish out 400$ in the next two weeks to call dibs on our new and improved home!! I still have a few people on my current list, but I’ll be going through those in the next couple of days, so fear not!!
As always if anyone’s interested, please feel free to read the info below, if not, please signal boost! I could really use the help ; v ;/
To order a commission, please:
Message me through IM, please.
Be aware that I take paypal payments only, and must be paid upfront.
Please specify the type of commission you want and have visual references! (I don’t mind written descriptions, but you’ll be charged a bit more for them)
I do fandom and OC works alike, furries are more than welcome.
That one protagonist child with short brown hair and bangs who goes into a strange world filled with monsters that want to kill them but they instead befriend them, their closest monster friend being a skeleton.
Update: thank you for reminding me about the goat demon that wants to kill them

It was odd, being aware and unaware in the stillness. They’ve died
so many times, rather figuratively and very literally, yet this felt
different. It was dark, it felt… somewhat cold. They
couldn’t hear anything, couldn’t taste, see, but a certain feeling
was there, something that could reside in their chest, and it pulled
them somewhere. They were idly floating in the nothing, nowhere in
mind to go so they let themselves be guided by that invisible tug.
Maybe this was the end? Really the end. Where there’d be no
more going back. They were pretty sure that by now that golden yellow
light would have appeared. It was tangible, like a star, a lone
little sun in a void space, and when grazing it with their hands they
thought it’d burn but it only pulsed into their skin like warm water.
And then it grew, impaled them, through their chest and their limbs
and a sharp pang in their head, glass breaking and shattering and
exploding into pieces from the inside and sprouting out to become
pale light. Then they’d blink their eyes open to a place they were
before, to a time that hadn’t gotten them killed yet. And then they
might just die again, and they’d go to that SAVE point, and their
eyes will open. Repeat.
PEOPLE! GET YOUR SUITS AND FANCY CLOTHES BECAUSE EVERYONE IS INVITED TO YUU’S AND SUZUMUSHI(cricket-frisk)WEDDING!!
There’ll be sweets and cake (*‘▽’*)♪
I just have one thing to say: *aherm*…Backgrounds? What are those *laughs nervously*
Decided to draw my sans and frisk from my first AU, YureiTale, for Valentines day. I missed them so much ≥﹏≤
I know i’m speeding up the years for these two(frisk here is 20 and sans is around 29) but i really wanted to draw this pic ;^; And no, Yurei!Frisk doesn’t get old, they can only change their appearance due to the fact that they’re a spirit.
As a kid who was constantly sketching and creating original characters, I never drew a single black person until the age of 15 when I made the conscious decision to do so. My default for so long was being plugged into this system where I wasn’t represented, that it just never occurred to me. For preexisting characters I was limited to Storm (who conveniently had straight long light hair, a thin nose, and blue eyes), my favorite singers, or…a self portrait.
So in the realms of fiction and fantasy, representation was abysmal. My default when it came to having a vision, was fantasy worlds devoid of people who looked like me…almost like I was emulating the majority of fantasy worlds gasp emoticon !!
I’d find whatever scraps I could and jokingly roll with it. “This character has a tan…..so…she might be part black” “Fran, from Final Fantasy 12? Obviously a black woman….(or a rabbit human with brown fur)” “Panthero, yep. He’s black too” *queue to an 8 year old Odera who legtimately thought Lara Croft was simply a light skinned black woman kicking ass and adventuring*
So with that in mind, today I want to celebrate the works of the illustration legends Leo & Diane Dillon. I actually hadn’t heard of them until I started to study illustration at RISD! So when I look at the Dillons’ vast and glorious body of work I think: These are the types of images I would have absolutely loved to see as a child. Works that show that black lives matter and can thrive in the real world and fictional worlds. We can be singers and athletes, but we can also be knights, magicians, and limitless.
Fuckin shit ok
So we got there around 5ish, and already I’m nervous and worried I’m not gonma fit in or something. But then miraculously I start getting in conversation with some lovelies and ended up making new friends!
The gates of the Masonic opened up at around 6, and everyone went in and went through the security check and such. Then the opening for each floor level of the theater happened so we walked to our seats.
I got to meet @moopdrea !! It was a surreal thing and honestly meeting twitter friends irl is weirdly wonderful.
So then Moop and her buddy Emily decided to go get merch and food, & we came with. Got a stromboli and Player Select (the physical copy) and also dropped off grump fanart for Dan and Arin in a lil box they had at the merch booth for after the show.
Once that happened, we went back to our seats when FRICKIN ARIN JUST STRUTS ON STAGE AND DANCES TO SPOOKY SCARY SKELETONS. Everyone’s cheering and Arin’s just LOVIN it. So glad I caught it on camera.
Then soon Vernon and Suzy showed up!! Suzy looks so much cuter in person. And Vernon DAMN THAT BOD XP
So he set up Super Mario for Suzy to play blindfolded and we all cheered and yelled commands so she’d stop or wait or jump. She failed most of them XD BUT it was awesome anyway.
Finally, DAN AND ARIN MAKE IT IN. And let me just say, it’s as surreal as you can get. It was like they were real yet not really there??? I was basically blown away like “fuck, i love these guys and they’re right in front of my eyes waaaat”
(side note Danny is JUST AS CUTE IRL AS HE IS IN PICTURES, SAME WITH MY DAD ARIN)
Just before the game started, Dan said he had a special friend in the crowd tonight, and it was his friend who introduced him to Brian all those years back to create NSP! It was the one girl from “The Decision” mv. And it was super sweet and made me all mistyeyed.
So started the game of choice, MARIO PARTY 10. And this time, it was split between one half of the room and the other. We were team Toad, while the rest of us were team Waluigi.
The game got fucking INTENSE man. And Vernon was running around the theatre and booking it up the stairs to the balcony like a boss O.O
We had A LOT of good players, yet Arin and Dan’s banter was by far the best thing. Also Arin trying to trick Dan with more elementary school jokes was amazing.
Arin: hey Dan, what’s a henway?
Dan:…..*serious face* I’m not falling for that. I’m still recovering from updog.
Also Danny NEVER did the floating weiner thing with your two fingers?? And Arin showed him how, THE GLEE ON DAN’S FACE AS HE’S LAUGHING AT WHAT HAPPENED WAS SO PURE.
So we played more Mario, and fricken there was a little 7 year old girl in the audience named Cadence that Danny had spotted and was just. THE SWEETEST TO.
He had her come up and play, and HE WAS ON HIS KNEES AT HER HEIGHT JUST TALKING TO HER AND ASKING HER LIKE “WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE TV SHOW? WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE POKEMON?” and I’m just sitting here like Danny you sweet man you I love you.
So that was awesome and Cadence got a group hug! (Danny, her, her dad, Arin, and the dude on team Waluigi). It was beautiful and awkward.
Finally it got to the final stretch of the game, everyone’s freaking out and unfortunately, Waluigi kicks our Toad’s ass. But we put up a great fight for second.
Then Q AND A TIME! I got so excited to ask my question, and Vernon comes up to my line, and he PICKED THE GIRL NEXT TO MY SISTER INSTEAD -_-
Alas twas not meant to be. However! I TALKED TO THE HOT PEPPER BOI! By that I mean it went like this:
Me: Hi Vernon! How are you?
Vernon: good! how about you?
Me: doing alright :3
Me: I’m sorry I’m all awkward it’s just like “omg your right here”
Vernon: ah nah *waves it off ljke he’s not the best*
Soon the Q & A ends, there was a lot of emotional ones they asked (except that one guy who asked Dan and Arin out to prom)
Arin: will there be a corsage? What no? NO CORSAGE? Then forget it!
Danny: you better bring me home by 8 or my dad’s gonna kill me.
Arin: yeah I’ll be real upset.
And finally, they finished off the show with Danny saying some sweet words about doing this all for us and we mean so much to them. It made me love them all over again.
(little things to note:)
-Arin not being able to flip the water bottle. Twice.
-Danny missing the gum catch
-Dan calling Vernon & Arin pieces of shit but immediately saying he was kidding and he loves them
-Arin literally POSING for everyone. DAMN
-Dan misunderstanding certain words that made everyone laugh their asses off
-ARIN DOUBLE DABBING. AND DAN DOUBLE DABBING.
-Cadence saying “I will destroy him” to her opponent.
-Mason (a different volunteer for Waluigi) had Arin and Dan rub their faces on his beard. It was apparently like a shiatsu massage.
-Jesus appearing in the corner of the room. Give it up for my boy JESUS!
-Arin saying Suzy inspires him and Suzy peeking from behind the curtains as they exchange blowing kisses 💚💚
-someone hand farting the GG theme
-a girl playing a tiny instrument (I wish I remembered the name of it!)
-Danny standing on a chair
-Arin semi sitting on a chair to match the height of another volunteer (he was quite tall)
-Arin randomly screaming “shut up!” when we got too loud Cx
-Vernon literally running back to the stage going “I LOST ONE OF THE VOLUNTEERS SHE WAS RIGHT HERE AND THEN GONE”
-Dan spilling water everywhere
-Vernon and Suzy’s “mating call” for the boys
-Dan mistaking Suzy for someone coming on stage
-Arin floffing the floof hair
-Arin being called “Big Cat” by Dan…after being insulted just so he can comfort him.
The show was such a blast and I loved being there. I only wish I could have said hi to them in person but that’ll have to wait till next time.
Also saw Vernon again, but just said a simple hi. I wanted a selfie with him, but he looked pretty busy and I didn’t wanna be THAT person
So then we hung out at Moop’s dorm (which is actually a lot bigger than I thought) and then I got picked up and driven home :3
Hey ^^ just wanted to say I love this fanComic so much! Your artwork is amazing and cute too. I typically listen to it with some music to amplify the emotions within each panel as well. Also I wasn't sure what kind of questions you were willing to answer, because I can't remember if you put up a guideline for that: But I've always been so curious of what inspired you to do this plot line? Also how do you feel about the negativity against the shipping of Frans? And how do you prepare a chapter?
I appreciate your compliment. :D
Because there are too many questions, I have to separate them into different posts.
If you don’t see them as the same with me, it’s totally fine.
By the way, calling any character “bitch” or other similar words is not good. Nobody should be called that if you understand the actual meaning behind, please understand.
Something more about answering questions is in here:
