First Art for 2013 – mega late!

This blog is now officially my art dump!  I’ma shove this all in really quickly to get up to date with my stuffs.Lines_AndelJadeSquish Lines – Andel & Jade

It’s the ever-popular Andel from my novels, giving his son, Jade, a big squeezy hug.Lines_JadeCompilation Lines – Jade, lotsa times

Various forms of Andel’s son, from babydemon!Jade, to childdemon!Jade and childvampire!Jade, to him as an adult.  As a grown-up in his non-demon form, he looks just like his daddy.  Aww… n_nLines_BeatAllsStylinLines – The Beat Alls, stylin’

This art was dreamt up from the fact that canonical Kevin has a beard.  So to match him, Toby grew a douchebag beard to go with his now officially titled ‘douchebag hair’ (even he calls it that, bless him), Jon spiked the fur on his chin…and Felicia was originally going to be wearing a Movember moustache, but in the end I got rid of it and just let her be a girl. X3Lines_LaharlChan Lines – Laharl-chan and Etna

Genderswap Laharl is hot.  Etna is angry and jealous.  Also Laharl is now married to Toby (see douchebag hair above) in our AU.  What a sweet couple they make, even if Laharl DID kidnap Toby and force him.Concept_DemiContortion Lines – Demi Aerial Contortion in Silk

I frigging LOVE aerial contortion in silk.  So I set myself the painful task of trying to draw one, with Demi as the star.  I’m happy enough after tons of sketchwork, now we’ll see how well I mess it up while inking. XD2013_WarsmanZaraStyle Warsman as Zara from Queen’s Blade Grimoire

I loved my Zara battle book from Grimoire, and I love Warsman.  They both have enormous bums.  So I parodied a butt-heavy page with this art of Warsman half in and half out of his Lord Flash bodysuit, getting an abusive kick from his best friend, Robin.  Poor, poor robot.2013_NatsukoEileenAlice Natsuko, Eileen & Alice

Had one pose reference for an ‘on the floor’ type thing, so I expanded it to involve three of our fave Kinnikuman related girls: Natsuko, Alice, and Robin’s oh so Scottishy sister, Eileen.

Concept_HeizenthlyGren Concept – Heizenthly & Gren, crossdressing

These are two characters from my novels that I adore, despite them both being dead at the time my books take place. XD Doesn’t mean I can’t draw the Heck out of them!  They were both happy crossdressers at parties and the like, so Hey-Hey’s allLines_Ebony Lines – Ebony

A quick drawing of a future book character, a vampire priestess-in-training-or-whatnot, Ebony.Concept_Theron Concept – Theron

Done as part of a request, it’s a new suave picture of Theron.  I was watching a nature programme and looking at pictures of lions when I drew this, as if it isn’t obvious. ;3Concept_Whiptail Concept – Whiptail

Also done as a request, it’s the villain from my recently finished fifth novel, Whiptail the kamrin.Concept_GrenAndelJade Concept – Gren/Andel/Jade

I’ve been in such a Gren mood in recent months.  This sketch juxtaposes him with child Andel, against adult Andel and his son, Jade.Concept_MilitarySynor Concept – Military Synor

I love military clothes and gothic clothes, so I fancied a merger here, feeling inspired by a mixture of Sailor Moon (forever luvs!) and Kyo Kara Maoh (because Wolfram just IS Synor).  I’ve been trying to add pointless details to characters’ clothes lately.Lines_MilitarySynor Lines – Military Synor

And here he is in inked form.

Concept_UmayaFlirt Concept – Umaya

I fancied Umaya, big curves and a big skirt, and this is what I doodled.  Oh Umaya, you are our resident sexy dog lady.

2013_WarsmanTrappyWarsman & Trappy

It’s Warsman from Kinnikuman/Nisei/Ultimate Muscle/blaaahhh, with his best friend and burden and occasional pet, Trappy!  Trappy is a Trappy, from Legasista.  What a weird game that was…but hey, we got to put Big Chris, Etna and even me in it!  I love customisation.  Trappy is ace.

For a screencast of Warsman and Trappy, go here!

2013_JeagerBellaJeager & Bella

Jeager/Jaeger/whutevva and Cerebella teamed up in Hitman: Absolution to infiltrate every situation imaginable!  Jeags was a totally believable maid, Bella was a totally convincing gangsta.  What, do you want to be the one to tell them they’re doing a bad job?  Didn’t think so. n_n

More to come…!  Call me fish fingers and ketchup, cuz I’m on a roll! 8D

A Billion Autumn/Winter Artworks

Still violently slow, I blame work stress and poor health!  I got over the flu, and still forgot to update stuffs, so before I leave for Ireland for Christmas (yay!), I’m running through some of my as-yet unposted art.  From doodles to painted pieces, here we go!

*

Lines_RobinAliceWedding

Robin & Alice

A quick lineart piece of Robin Mask with his wife, Alice, on their wedding day, from Kinnikuman/Ultimate Muscle/blahblahblah.  I prefer sticking to our original name for her in our imaginings, though she’s more widely known as Alisa now, we only had the original Kinnikuman anime from the 80s when we named her!  There was a running joke about Robin having a huge top-hat, so here it is.Lines_KevWarsiWeddingWarsman, Kevin & Trappy

 On the same page as the one above, I had space, so I drew a quicker doodle of Warsman dreaming of his marriage to Kevin (in a stylish dress of course).  Trappy, Warsman’s demented pet bunny thing, is a flower girl.

Lines_EileenToyEileen with Plush(!) Miguel

It’s Robin’s big sister, Eileen, who has a big crush on Miguel.  She has a plush of him with wee orange button eyes!  It’s a quick piccy but it’s exactly what I wanted, I aim to colour it in a painty-painty style.

 

Lines_MigsPoseMiguel

It’s an oldish picture of Miguel that I never finished the lineart for.  The sketch was inspired by a garage kit (I think?) figure from a Japanese hobby expo.

Lines_NewNeuveauAngelArt Nouveau Angel

It’s a second attempt at Angel in an Art Nouveau style, since I hated my first one XD

Lines_TobyBritishViolenceTobias

It’s Toby, from Grenamoya Island and our AU being the ‘bad-arse’ anarchist he always claims to be.  The line is one of Rik Mayall’s, who we tend to characterise him as, from the series ‘Bottom’.

Lines_LuciferLiselotteLucifer & Liselotte

From Grenamoya Island, two froneks (cat people) from a future stand-alone novel.  Lucifer is a mean ol’ pussycat, and Liselotte is the girl-kitty unwisely and hopelessly in love with him.

2012_OlLinChanVSMarsOl’ Lin-chan VS Mars

For some reason my brain fixated on the idea that our old and sadly belated brown hooded rat, Linna, should do battle with Mars from Kinnikuman Nisei/Ultimate Muscle.  It now has a ludicrous backstory that I hope to illustrate when I have time XD So here she is, being taken by Mars (a bird) for his lunch, and getting tooty revenge!

2012_BeatAllsTShirt1 Beat Alls: Panel style!

It’s the Beat Alls – Toby from Grenamoya, Kevin from Ultimate Muscle, and Talbain and Felicia from Darkstalkers!  This image now exists on a t-shirt :3

2012_PobotRobot – Kevin & Warsman

Set to lovely words from t.A.T.u’s song “Robot”, of course.  It’s about being in love with a robot.  Duh. n_n

2012_RarityAvarice Seven Deadly Sins – Rarity Style!

It’s Raahhhrity, from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, being one of the Seven Deadly Sins!  Though she probably commits at least three on a daily basis.

Concept_BeatAllsBibleBlack3 Concept – Beat Alls Bible Black

For some reason, the Beat Alls and Bible Black official images go well together.

2012_WinterHugs Winter Hugs – Jeager, Boris, Ruri and Dumpling

All curled up for winter in their appropriate socks, Jeager and his new boyfriend, Boris, enjoy a warm time with Ruri, and the reincarnation of their old dachshund, Dumpling.  Don’t ask. n_n;;Lines_CammyRufusHug Rufus & Cammesonja

The twin trolls from my novel series, having a huggy moment. n_n

2012_BeatAllsBibleBlack Beat Alls, Bible Black style – again

Seriously, they just go together so, so well!

2012_AliceEileenNatsukoSunbathing Alice, Eileen & Natsuko

Like the picture says.  Just sunbathin’ 🙂 With shaded tones for no reason.

2012_BeatAllsTShirt2 Beat Alls, t-shirt design

This image is based off the cover for my DVD boxset of The Young Ones.  It’s happily living on a t-shirt now. n_n

2012_PockyDay Angel with Pocky

A quick doodle of Angel for Pocky Day.

2012_GrenamoyaSketchTheron Theron

I was in a grungy, messy, painty mood, so I did this piece of Theron the troll from my novel series.

2012_GrenamoyaSketchUlyssis Ulyssis

From my novels, Ulyssis, done in a grungy painted style, looking rather less charming than Theron.

Lines_AliceNatsukoSweetestMama Alice & Natsuko

Based off an ecchi/hentai cover thing, Alice and Natsuko sit around being sexy mamas while their sons, Kevin and Terry, try not to be ashamed. 83

2012_BeatAllsTeaOnTheLawn The Beat Alls take tea on the lawn

A classic, cheesy line from The Young Ones, as Vyvyan pours his cup of tea onto the grass.  Ah, British summers…

Lines_HardcoreHoneys Risty, Charlie & Angel

Set up as rivals to the Beat Alls in our AU wrestling league – but who ended up just fighting amongst themselves and failing slightly – it’s Risty from Queen’s Blade, and OCs Charlie and Angel, as the Hardcore Honeys!  Now if only they’d just make up with one another.Lines_CammyCeleeCammy & Celee

This pose was inspired by a figure of Masane and her little girl from the anime series of Witchblade.  I was in the mood for some bittersweet mother-daughter bonding.

More on the way!

Overdue Art Complete – Watercolours, Grenamoya, Comic Strips and Junk!

To finish up my huge backlog of art…

*Shadow Runner

He is the watercolour painted version of my Shadow Runner profile sketch.  She is a pretty grey-and-black dinosaur, and wears a symbolic necklace around her neck of the island’s deity, Scaless, and her six children. =3

Ramsey & Blanoka

Here is Ramsey in glorious colour with little Blanoka.  I was in mega joys with my watercolour, it’s the first medium I ever painted in and it will always be a love of mine.

Toby & Ulyssis

I used a rougher style for this watercolour, with a slightly hatched texture, and I loved it too!  I was sitting in my late grandfather’s office chair to paint all of these, and I think it made me more skilled than I should be. :/ But no matter, I felt totally in the zone.  I love that darn chair!

Ruri & Jeager

And last but not least in my watercolour collection so far, it’s little Ruri with her mother, Jeager.  They have a nice, blotchy orange halo for some reason XD I was in the mood for one.  Natural art never scans the way you want it to, but I was totally pleased with how all of these turned out.

Miguel, Chris, Robin, Warsman, Kevin & Tobias

I was watching the Steve Wilkos show (I’ve been a fan of Steve’s since the days when he had hair!), and realised that the throwing of chairs was like something out of a WWE Pay Per View special.  So in preparation for the start of their new wrestling league, RIFF, some of the guys involved are watching Steve.  All together now: “STEEEEEVE!!!!”

Robin & Wonderland

Watching the Olympic showjumping, there was a jump called Tower Bridge, and every time someone went over it or mentioned it or the camera went past it, Robin would declare “Tower Bridge!” in reference to his classic wrestling move.  It drove everyone mad.  So I doodled this super quick picture of him riding his horse ‘Wonderland’ (in tribute to his late wife, Alice) over the Tower Bridge jump XD It’s sketchy, but so is Robin’s credibility.

*

Many years ago, in the infancy of our Random Fandom, we had a merger between the anime series Ultimate Muscle & the video game Project Zero/Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly.  In our version, instead of Mio, Jeager from Ultimate Muscle, complete with a girlish outfit, ended up in the Lost Village searching for his inexplicably tiny and Japanese ‘twin sister’, Mayu (known to the rest of us as Limpy because of her bad knee).  Warsman, then in his disguise as Lord Flash, went with him.

Now, as the game is rereleased for the Wii, Jeager decides to face his demons (and the ghost that made him void himself, Peeping Child) one last time.  This time, he takes true-form Warsman, as well as his boyfriend Boris, his savant daughter Ruri, and his new friends Big Chris, Miguel, and Felicia in cat form.  These following panels document three pointless adventures in the Lost Village. 83

*

Robin, Warsman & Kevin

A quick drawing I did of Robbie, Kev & Warsi at the end of a rough day.  I think I was feeling vulnerable that day, so I drew this.  Everyone has arguments, everybody has days when they want to avoid people, and everyone has days when they need a loved one to comfort them.  Robin has little patience for his son, even in our AU, but Warsman will always be there.  He mediates between the two.  God bless loyal robot-kun. :3

And here they are, coloured.  I put a moody paint filter on top of my own colouring, and I believe it expresses what I wanted.  Makes me just want to cuddle up in a hug.

All caught up for now!  Mega yays 😀

Merchandise at Red Bubble

Thanks to my fiancé I have recently discovered the joy that is RedBubble.com.  He was looking for My Little Pony goodies for us, and not only did he come across TONS of Pony stuff there, I was able to find yet another online service for T-shirt printing. 🙂 I’ve printed Grenamoya T-shirts with a few companies in the past and I like seeing the quality offered by each.  As a result I have not only bought Pony things, but I have uploaded two of my newest T-shirt designs to Red Bubble to see if they turn out better than Zazzle’s and Spreadshirt’s.

My “Grenamoya chibis” design is finally in print, and there are three currently on order!

Grenamoya chibis design, featuring 25 characters, in black

I also designed another Red Bubble exclusive tee, featuring Cammesonja as the famous “awesome face”.  Of course because she’s a troll, the slogan is ironically “troll face”.  I found it amusing…plus she looks like Gummo.  Gummo demands his own T-shirt in future.

Cammy, like The Miz, is Aaaaaawwweeesoooome

Waiting on the Tees to arrive, and I shall give my feedback when they do!  Coincidentally I am wearing my latest Spreadshirt T-shirt featuring Athani at work today.
