“All Grown Up!” Collab with @TheRaikume (from Twitter)
adventure in character design for this week’s newest squiggle art as part of an
awesome collab with @TheRaikume from Twitter. Drawing adult versions of our
Miraculous heroes. Rai will be drawing Chloe
and Marinette while I handled Alya
and Adrien; my two favs. Yes!
originally supposed to draw them in casual wear but little ole me got swept
away in this cool headcanon of mine. Now we all know from the series that Alya
plans on becoming a reporter when she grows up. But the interesting thing is we
don’t know what Adrien plans to do with his life once he’s older. Right now he’s
so focused on keeping dear ole dad happy by being a model that I don’t think he’s
ever considered what he really wants to do once he’s become an adult (I mean
besides become Ladybug’s one and only devoted lover of course).
said, good thing for headcanons and fan theories right? My idea is that Adrien turns
to a life of sleuthing and becomes a criminal
investigator when he gets older. I found it really interesting that he was
more eager to assume the call for heroism than Marinette so this makes me think
that maybe all those years of being Chat Noir and defending Paris alongside
Ladybug and all the other Miraculous heroes would ultimately inspire Adrien to
become a crime fighter in his civilian life as well hence the criminal
I also have
this idea of Adrien and Alya teaming up from time to time and helping each
other out with their individual careers. Of course by this time, they’re also happily
married to their respective partners: Adrien ending up with Marinette
(naturally of course) and Alya with Nino. It wouldn’t be a perfect grown up
Miraculous heroes headcanon without it, am I right folks? ;)
Overall I had
fun designing the looks for grown up Adrien and Alya. While Alya’s design is my
favourite of the two (again, naturally of course), I must say that I’m most
proud of Adrien’s design. I based his facial features off a another fan theory
I shared last year where Adrien will look a lot more like his dad Gabriel as he
matured; ultimately inheriting his nice high cheek bones.
half of the collab is officially complete. As I mentioned before, @TheRaikume
will be working on her designs for Adult Chloe and Marinette. Definitely looking
forward to seeing those once they’re complete. As always, I hope everyone will
enjoy this week’s newest Miraculous squiggle art.
Also as today is May 14th, wishing everyone a happy Mother’s Day.
Hope you all had a miraculous Sunday spent with your families and giving praise
to one of the most special ladies in your lives: mommy dearest.

@thememime first of all THANK u for enjoying my claw paws i love drawin them oh so much
now let me think,, how do i actually,,,,,,…..draw them….,, ,
hmmmmmm uuuhhhhhhhhhh uuuuuuhhhhhhhhhh
ok to tell u the truth when i draw the claw paws its 100% muscle memory after drawing my dragon oc on every sheet of paper i came into contact with in high school, so actually thinkin abt the process is like ?? uhmmmmhhh well you squiggle it uuh
its not exactly a science i guess, and in retrospect its probably an anatomical bastardization, but i just go with what feels right bro. its kind of like a pattern or a rhythm.
i generally stick with three distinct knobs, a knuckle, another one, and another one after that second one. otherwise its about your line of action and where u want to pull the weight. oh! and i like to let the claws act as an extension of the hand, i give them bulk and weight as well, and they sorta flop around wherever they feel like goin
and of course there are 8,109,553,449 variations in how ya wanna stylize based on the exaggeration of your curves and angles, also by adding knobby joints and wrinkles! wrinkles are fun
but idk man. tbh ive just been kinda bullshitting it the entire time. please dont slap me with pizza dough
on a Miraculous musing that I shared
last year (that I can’t seem to find on my main blog) about Master Fu taking
Nino under his wing to become the next holder of the Turtle Miraculous and
awesomely enough, I’m not the only miraculer who shares this thought. The very
first time I saw Master Fu, I immediately thought of Mr. Miyagi cause you have
to admit, the resemblance is definitely there and since then I’ve been itching
and hoping that the series would do a Karate
Kid inspired episode where Nino comes to Master Fu for help.
maybe there’s this new schoolyard bully with the hots for Alya who starts targeting
Nino specifically due to his relationship with and somewhat own romantic
interest in our foxy gal; constantly challenging him to foolish fights for
Alya’s love. Being the nonchalant character he is, Nino dismisses the bully’s initial
advances at harrying as he wasn’t the type of guy to want to fight anyone.
in similar Karate Kid type of fashion, Master Fu firstly meets Nino
after he saves him from being pummelled by said bully and his comrades when
they suddenly cornered him after school. Following that event, Nino is forced to
fight back against said bully; seeking out Fu for help, practically begging him
to teach him how to fight; a request which Fu surprisingly accepts.
is how I imagined Fu’s first encounter with Nino to be like. And after helping
him the first time, Master Fu starts to acknowledge potential in Nino—a potential which inspires him to start
training him to be his successor. I
imagine that at first Wayzz wouldn’t be too keen with the idea of Nino one day
replacing Master Fu as his new master cause I figured that, unlike Plagg, Tikki
and possibly the other kwamis, Wayzz is the one who’s been with his original
holder the longest; considering that Fu is over 100 years old. While the others
had had to change holders over the years, Wayzz has been with Fu since the day one
and is very much loyal to him.
ultimately I imagine once he sees Nino’s good qualities, Wayzz will begin to
warm up to the young lad and actually starts to care for his well being; seeing
a lot of the qualities in Nino that he did in Master Fu that made him love him
as his master. Plus I think this kind of scenario could be great for Nino’s own
character development as a teacher-mentor relationship with Master Fu can
certainly help mould him into a stronger individual and hero. Not to mention that it’ll be really touching to see Master Fu
have a sort of father-son/grandfather-grandchild/close family oriented
relationship with at least one of our young heroes and I think Nino would be
the perfect candidate to bring out that side of him. We don’t know if Fu used
to have any kids of his own. I doubt he ever did given his duty as Miraculous
holder and Ancient Guardian (and even if hid have some, he probably outgrew
them since he’s practically immortal). So yeah, I’d love to see that kind of
bond with Fu, Nino and Wayzz in the series, if possible.
Do I think Master Fu
will choose Nino as his successor for the Turtle Miraculous?Indeed I do.
However, do I think
he’ll just hand it to him on a silver platter like he did with Adrien and
HA! Hell no! I think Master Fu will go full Mr. Miyagi on Nino and make him
work for his miraculous, putting him through a rigorous training regimen to
build his strength and test his worth. Plus it’ll be good for comical moments
when Fu unintentionally pushes poor Nino too far and has to be scolded by Wayzz
for getting too excited and overdoing
things with his student. Poor Turtle Sensei just wants to see his Turtle Kouhai
love to see this become canon but…for now these are all just headcanons of
mine. In the meantime, a squiggle meister can dream…and draw, am I right? Alrighty
I’ve rambled enough on this. As always, I hope everyone enjoys this week’s
newest ML squiggle art and I hope you also enjoyed my Miraculous musing
(granted you actually read all of that). Feel free to share yours over on my ♦main blog if you have any.
I hate wasting paint so sometimes I’ll wipe the paint in my sketchbook and then try to make something out of it 😅this is an example, it’s not finished though! Lol also!!! The shrinky dink brooches are up on etsy! Link in bio! Hope you’re all having a great night!! You are loved! You are great! 🌻🌈🎨💗✨💗❤️💛💚💙💜#doodle#drawing#wip#workinprogress#watchmework#lAtenight#video#wipvideo##art#artvideo#drawingvideo#instagram#instaart#artofthedAy#watchmedrAw#squiggles#micron#gellyroll
Hey, look, I’m actually alive! I’m still neck deep into painting, redecorating, and so on, but I did manged to paint a lazy Dimetrodon sunbathing on a Walchia trunk, and found some time to upload it, so there’s that.
I’m still not going to post anywhere near regularly here, as also, life happened, and it turned out I have to write myself a website, get a hosting, and go through a lot of changes in the business I’m trying to run, and it’s all still in progress, and I’ll be focusing on this for now. I’ll try to pop up here from time to time, and maybe even get some new artwork done. Life’s pesky like that, and there’s this little issue of earning money to stay alive, or something…
I hope you’re all doing alright, and I now I got a bunch of new followers, so hello to you :)
As for this Dimetrodon, contrary to a whole lot of palaeoart, you can’t spend your life roaring, hunting, chasing, and snapping at everything that moves. Sometimes you just have to take a break, and take a nap in the sun.
I don’t know why, but the painting looks weird: it looks fine when I look at it in krita, the .kra file looks also good, but when I save it as png it turns out really dark. No idea why. I did play a bit with levels, to get it to look closer to what the painting before conversion looks like, and this is the best result I got, but I’m still not 100% happy with it. That’s the first time something like that happened, and I hope it’s the last. And also tumblr doing something atrocious to it doesn’t help…
You’d think I’d draw some
cheesecake but, nah, this V-Day, I’m more craving some honey and lime jello ♥
the kind of squiggle meister who ships turtles with bees, cats with ladybugs
and foxes with butterflies. No ship for the peacock, though. The peacock is
everybody’s love child so she gets love all around. Keeping
it brief today cause what I have to say, like myself, is short and sweet.
all my lovely star kids who have supported me and keep supporting me and my
squiggs, wishing you all a blessed and happy Valentines’ Day. I hope you spent
today receiving lots and lots of love cause that’s what you lovely people
deserve so much and more. I promised I’d return with the kwamis this month so
sending you lots of love and K-Squad cuteness this Valentine’s Day 2017.
the new squiggle art everyone and as always, stay tune for more star kids. See
ya’ll next time!
