Moonlight Wine by me writing something really weird and angsty
@herzspalter and i recently been discussing jojo a lot. (which was super fun, like how we discover this weird and wonderful series and what not) also found out that she ships acdc/kars. i wanted to draw something for her and it was a good excuse to practice drawing acdc, so here it is.
ummmm herzy, i was gonna do like a one page thing but my brain sort of went into overdrive and my hand moved on it’s own. ah-hahaha… *sweats*
Hey I was wondering what is your sona? Like species wise; I love love love the whole design and look so much I almost wanna so something with that sort of look, it's just so cool!
AAAA I’m glad u like my lil mimic!!!
She’s supposed to be a baboon-like creature, because when I designed her I was super into baboons (well I still am… monkeys are awesome)…?
But THEN I did one of those memes where people send u a mythical creature and you draw yourself as that, and had so much fun drawing her in different forms I decided she’s also shapeshifter
Ence the name Memime, because she mimics… which I think fits me well because I have the bad habit of never sticking to a personal artstyle and instead always mimicking the latest drawing I’m obsessing over :B
Also lately I’ve been drawing her in a greyscale palette because I want her to look like one of those rubber-hose cartoons!!!
This time i ACTUALLY checked to make sure the person i'm rambling at knows what night vale is. Andreil WTNV AU where Andrew is the host and Renee is his bowling friend(old woman Josie) who talks to angels and Neil comes into town (who is he? what does he want?) and Andrew hates him instantly. Maybe Allison is the woman who secretly lives in your house because she knows everything idk. Dan or Wymack is station management? Also Andrew saying "Riko" like Cecil says "Steve Carlsberg"
yo I love wtnv, it’s super fun to listen to while drawing!!
but Andrew as a radio host??
“On today’s news, Neil The Liar is being an idiot again.”
(”What is he hiding??”)
“Brought to you by Station Management, who keeps trying to tell me what to do.”
“Come join us at Nicky’s bar to watch Kevin get flat-out drunk.”
“Did you see Neil The Liar in those jean shorts?? Disgusting.”
“Renee, who lives with angels (which are not real, stop looking at me like that, Station Management) is currently baking brownies. They smell like old socks.”
“Reminder that Big Riko’s pizza fucking sucks.”
“The cat floating in the bathroom is now named Sir Fat Cat McCatterson. Someone get it out.”
“Today’s fun fact - wait, Neil’s calling. Better find out what he did this time. Hi, babe -”
So, remember how I said I was going through a really frustrating art block and having and art style crisis? Well, while so, I came accross this cute challenge.
Basically what you have to do is draw something by yourself, pick some artists and draw the same thing in their style so I did the phanart version of this. Technically this is about drawing in your friends’ style but since I don’t have enough friends for that I just drew in the style of my faves haha- And then you compliment something you really like about each person’s style and it’s all nice and happy.
Also! Just to spread some love in the phanart community, if anyone else wants to do this challenge please tag with #phanartstylechallenge and I’ll be sneaking around to follow some new phanartists I don’t know yet since I’m actually quite new. You can pick as many artists as you want or do the drawings as complex as you want! This is just for fun. Absolutely no cheating though, I shouldn’t be even saying this but art theft is not okay.
Anyone who knows me knows I didn’t watch anime as a kid. In fact, I actively despised it for many many various reasons that I’m not going to go into right at this moment. My attitude has since changed a lot and in the past 2 or 3 years I’ve actually started looking into it a bit more. I’m now basically an anime blank slate.
Because of this attitude I missed almost everything related to Pokemon. I played Super Smash Bros, so sometimes pokemon would show up in that. Also, I saw it in passing when my sister would watch it. I wanted to watch Twilight Zone reruns, she wanted to watch Pokemon. This led to much disagreement after school. I also saw some Digimon when she would watch it, but I don’t think these two shows are related?
Anyway, this is a project that was brought up to me by our PA, jameslien, when he discovered I have zero pokemon knowledge. This project has been done by others in my situation and it’s actually super fun!
The rules are as follows:
James describes a pokemon on a post-it note.
I draw the pokemon from his description without googling what the pokemon actually looks like. Everything drawn is from my memory and what the description says.
I don’t know what this kind of thing is called? Maybe it’s called blind fan art? Regardless, I’ll post one a week and hopefully it will look like the Pokemon we’re aiming for.
Did some more three marker challenge! This time I did a timer to really make myself go.
It was super fun to do if you haven’t tried this challenge before please do! The timer really makes you think quickly though I recommend doing 10 minutes not 5 unless you are really good because your drawings can end up super bad XD.
So when @mannaweek announced that one of the days was going to be an AU, I brainstormed for a bit before coming up with the idea of an AU in which Janna is a witch. The AU is homeage to the popular series “Sabrina the Teenage Witch”. Some things are likely to change, especially with the rules of how the magic world works, but here the gist of what I have (special thanks to @mrevaunit42 for helping me iron out some details)
Important things about the AU
All the characters in the au have the same personality as their cannon versions
Ludo is the “Salem” of the AU. He was turned into a parrot and was sentence to live with Janna due to him wanting to take over the world and was given to Janna as one of the two punishments she had to choose after breaking a rule in the magical community (the other choice was Janitorial services at a Goblin prison).
If a witch freely tells a mortal that they are a witch/wizard and that mortal betrays them by telling another mortal,
the mortal and witch/wizard will forcibly have their memories removed and neither will ever acknowledge the other ever again.
Star is a witch (her mom is a witch and her dad is a human) who is apart of a royal witch family. However the butterflies in this AU have no connection to Toffee.
Toffee does exist in this AU, though I’m waiting to learn more about him before settling on something. Though Janna is a descendant of Eclipsa (who is in this AU is an ancestor of Janna instead of Star, and was regarded as one of the most powerful witches in the magical community)
Instead of their being a Janna/Marco/Star triangle or a Janna/Marco/Jackie triangle, Marco will slowly fall for Janna and recuperate the feelings since, as he goes on more adventures with her, he gets to know her better and learn there’s more to her then her trickster personality.
Star is Janna best witch friend and Jackie is Janna best human friend. They both try to give advice to Janna on how to better handle her crush on Marco.
The Magical commision are the same of the AU are the same as the one’s from STVTFOE
Set up of the Au
Marco learned about Janna being a witch after being assigned to be her math tutor. When he goes to her house later that day however, he sees light flashing from her room. He rushes inside the house and go to her room and see Janna in front of a green swirling vortex with her also wearing a witch costume. Due to being surprised by Marco interruption, she lose concentration which ends up sucking in her and Marco.
After going through the portal, Marco and Janna wind up in a shady part of the magic world. Marco is freaking out by what happened, and freaks out even more when he sees creatures like trolls, cyclops, and goblins. Janna quickly takes him into a nearby alley to avoid attention and explain things there.
She explains to Marco how she’s a witch in training and what he caught her doing was practicing how to summon a creature for her upcoming magic test but due to his interruption, they winded up in the magic world. Marco wants to go home but Janna explains she can’t since she need her wand to perform high level spells like. She points out that while there is an official transportation service to Earth,but it’s a one day journey by bus, and she doesn’t have any change on her. However she explains that she knows a guy who could help them out. Though she sprays Marco with a special kind of fragrance that will disguise his human scent since in the part of the magic world they are in, the creatures aren’t very fond of humans.
Janna takes Marco to a shady underground club where they meet Boofly (the fly guy from STVTFOE) a creature who specializes in selling and renting spare wands. However he tells Janna that he’s displeased with how she scammed him last time, and say he wants Marco in exchange. He explains how since humans are no longer legal to be eaten, the right monster would pay a high fee for the taste of human flesh.
Janna tells that Marco is not for sell, but Boofly say he wasn’t asking, and snap his fingers to summon some of his goons. Janna tell Marco to stay behind him, since she can still do some basic spells, but Marco blocks a punch that was headed toward to Janna, and flipped the monster over his shoulder with him crashing against the wall. Janna is impressed with Marco cockily reminding her that he does take karate. The duo end up fighting all of Boofly goons, with Janna snatching the wand from slick, grabbing Marco, and summoning a portal back to her own room.
Janna complains about how she’s going to need to find a new guy. She tells Marco that he doesn’t need to tutor her, and she understand if he didn’t want to hang out with her now since she was probably even more creepy then he already thought she was before Marco interrupted her. He explains that what they just did was one of the best things that ever happened to him, and how he wants to do more of that. He goes on and tell her that maybe he pegged Janna rebellious nature the wrong way, and that she was right about sometimes it was okay to cut loose, have fun.
Janna slightly blushes at Marco words since that the nicest thing he have ever said about her but goes back to her cool demeanor so he doesn’t think she’s going soft. She asks him if he sures about this and Marco agrees.
one of the randomized reference pictures during my warmups was a person with an umbrella so of course I had to draw neo! I really hadn’t ever thought to draw her before so this was really fun. she was the last one I did so as far as technical stuff goes this doodle is probably the cleanest. the extra versions aren’t very different, but they show off some of the layers of lighting and shading I usually do.
Guess who’s still super inspired by the latest steven bomb!!! When I saw that super tiny gems were a thing, I just had to make one!
So meet my newest gem – Hiddenite! I haven’t really fleshed her out a lot, ‘cause I’m not sure if I’m ever gonna use her on my gem blog, but she’s tons of fun to draw regardless :P She’s also low-key based off the Heaven and Earth beetles because of some theories I read about tiny gems.
Gem: Hiddenite (located on back)
Gender: Female (she/her)
Alignment: Homeworld (Blue Diamond)
Height: 10 inches
Summary: Hiddenite’s role on Homeworld is to find mineral-rich planets to set up Kindergartens on. She’s very in tune her surroundings and can sense what the ground beneath her is composed of. As long as she’s connected to the ground, she’s capable of geokinesis as well!
Since Hiddenite is a fancy high-ranked gem, she also owns a Pearl (that I’m way too lazy to design) that carries her around, and a tiny palanquin for traveling through rough terrain. She usually has several bodyguards that travel with her to new planets too.
[CBR:] Lastly on the tour of the book are the Draculoids and Korse and all the villains from the video, and it seems so far like we’re going to get a lot more story on how these drones for the corporation came to be. You’ve said you had so much fun doing the designs of the Killjoys and the Ultra Vs who are so much their own people. Is there something fun about doing these characters who are forced to be more uniform?
Way: Yeah. That was actually, in a lot of ways, more fun because it was a really big challenge. And I didn’t even realize this until we were filming the second video, but Jimmy from the band Mindless Self Indulgence played the main Draculoid, and he came up going, “I just realized…me and the other guys kind of look like Stormtroopers from Star Wars, but we’re these really insane punk rock ’70s horror movie versions!”
And Becky also pointed out, because she was the first person who had to draw them, that they look like Sid Vicious. She said, “I’m drawing this crazy Sid Vicious vampire” and you had this other reference point too…
Cloonan: It was Michael Myers from “Halloween!” These are like if Michael Myers were running around in a vampire cape. [Laughter] That’s how I approached it.
Way: So they were really fun to make. You’re getting into this world and just having fun with it. Again, you can just make something that’s not super generic because you’re not riffing on World War II stuff for your villains. You can have so much fun with it. Sitting with Grant [Morrison] was insane. Grant really designed his own costume. I sat down with him and said, “Let’s talk about Korse” and he immediately said, “This is what I think about Korse. He’s a bit of a dandy.” And he’s got all these ideas for it.
Cloonan: I love that Grant Morrison just owns that jacket. [Laughs]
Way: He was like, “I really want a frilly cuff.”
Simon: One of the best panels Becky did in issue #1 was when Korse was holding the gun. It’s so him.
Way: We practiced that a lot. I remember standing in my house and handing Grant his gun, and he immediately held it up in front of his face and was just like, “This is how Korse would hold it.” [Laughter] It’s crazy how many memories are coming back now that the book is coming out.
Happy Birthday @pleasesavetanaka aka @romiress! I drew her OC, Naoko, whose actually the teenage daughter of Naomi Li and Tanaka. She’s head of a film club so my imagination took off with the thought and I couldn’t help but do a super doodle-y comic related to where her interest in film might have come from. Hopefully this isn’t too ooc, Romi >>;;;
In which Evan takes the job as a Firewatch to get some extra money and take a break from everything in regards to his anxiety. And you know, there are trees.
And Connor takes Delilah’s place and talks to Evan through the walkie-talkie whilst sitting in his own look-out tower. I keep thinking about the fact that it would also fun If they had the scene Henry and Delilah had in the actual game where she asks what his face looks like so that she can draw him. I mean we all have the head-canon that Connor can draw so I just think it would fit. Open to more ideas :3
Oh and super gay did I mention?
