Live Free Illustrations: Best of Toasty

(Best of Splickedy)

@splickedylit and I have been working on this fic since October 2015 and illustrating every chapter, so I thought I’d compile my favorite illustrations I’ve done!  This story has been a real journey in terms of both art and writing.  I’ve learned a lot about just diving right into backgrounds, for one thing, although they wouldn’t have been possible without ref from this gorgeously designed show!

primtheamazing  asked:

Iiiii just had a thought!! What if in the episode where Chuck gets all weird bc boosters he just fucking jumps Mike without hesitation bc haha consequences don't exist!!! Mike is super taken off guard and bewildered, but he's also got an assumed-unrequited crush on Chuck, so. Also, aftermath after the boosters come out and Chuck gets his fear reaction back aaah

Well on the one hand (and I feel like this has been drawn ten thousand times before but I had to I’m sorry)

But honestly even more importantly, emotional drama aside, just…………..

CUTE???!?!?!

@splickedylit it was gonna be an actual scene from Werewolves of Detroit but the message got MAD lost on the way from my hand to my brain.  I’m very tired.  Anyway here’s weremike having a little adventure outside his natural habitat.

everyone, did u know splickedy’s working three 12-hour night shifts in a row this weekend??  damn!!  she’s working even as we speak!

Live Free, Chapter 17: A Change in Management: Let Them Know Who’s Boss!!

On Ao3

Chapter Summary: The stakes are higher than ever; all of Motorcity vs. all of Kane Co., and once again…Mike Chilton vs. Abraham Kane. Change is coming for both their cities, in the form of new alliances formed, new responsibilities undertaken, and the absence of a familiar face…

Art and writing by @splickedylit and @toastyhat

The Burners and the stereotypes they break.

Mike Chilton

  • A tragic past makes a brooding loner. (He is a positive, outgoing person who sees his teammates as family.)
  • The leader is always an uptight stick in the mud. (Mike is the exact opposite of this.)

Chuck

  • The white guy is always the hero. (Chuck would rather avoid that kind of danger.)
  • Too afraid to participate. (Even though it terrifies him, he always rides shotgun with Mike.)

Julie Kane

  • Only girl on the team = pink everything. (Her car is YELLOW.)
  • People with connections to the enemy are morally ambiguous. (Julie has made it clear that she doesn’t support what her father does.)
  • “My parents are evil, therefore, I hate them. (Julie cares about her dad and wants to believe he can change.)
  • Two female characters have to be rivals for a man’s attention. (Julie and her friend Claire pass the bechdel test every time they’re on screen together.)

Dutch Gordy

  • The black guy dies first. (There is an entire episode dedicated to breaking this one.)
  • Only there to check off the diversity box. (Dutch is the only character on the show who comes close to having a full backstory.)

Texas

  • Strong = big. (Except for Julie, Texas is the shortest one on the team.)
  • Guys don’t like girls who are stronger than them. (Texas is attracted to powerful women.)
  • The dumb jock. (You need a functioning brain to come up with the kind of ideas Texas has.)
  • Asian = martial arts master. (He usually just shoots his attacker.)

Burners in general

  • The end justifies the means. (They refuse to let stopping Kane justify hurting innocent people.)
