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 update – Random Fandom, Kinnikuman crossovers, Noire Ponies and Grenamoya sketches

Continuing along the path of ‘Art I was meant to Update yonks ago but didn’t’, here’s some more! 😀

*

Jeager, Ruri & Boris

In our random fandom, originally going back about ten years, Jeager from Ultimate Muscle/Kinnikuman lived in Manchester with his many adopted children, one of which was Ruri from Martian Successor Nadesico.  They’re still together, even now that all of Jeager’s other kiddies have moved on; and Ruri has been forming a heartwarming, close relationship with Jeager’s new boyfriend, Boris.  Boris has never had kids, and didn’t have much of a childhood either, so now he’s learning what it is to be a dad.  D’aaawwww…. n_n

And here they are coloured!  Gotta love Jeager’s fine Rammstein t-shirt, I think he collects them.

Pinkie Pie, Spike, Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, AppleJack and Fluttershy

This is a picture request that I took for “My Little Po-Noire’.  To do up the cast of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, in a 1920’s swingin’ style!  Pinkie’s a waitress, Twilight’s a sleuth with Spike as her ‘Dragon Friday’, Dashie’s a gangster, Rarity’s a flapper girl, and AJ and Fluttershy are sweet gals of the era (AJ has spiced up her working girl attire with a luvverly hat!).  And aren’t they all cute as a button?  Yay for commissions!

And again, now they’re coloured!  I really liked how they turned out.  Such well-behaved Noire ponies.

Rarity, Tobias, Fabian, Kevin, Odin, Karen, Eleanor, Robin, Chesty & Warsman

For the start of the olympics, I drew this picture of the ‘Team GB’ of our Random Fandom, including characters old and new, furry and unfurry, British and wish-they-were-British!  Rarity’s lurking in the background even though her family is Canadian, Warsman is showing his English side though he’s really very Russian, and Chesty, the most evil squirrel in all the known world, is plotting in the foreground…and she’s actually Irish!  What a shock it all is.  But together they express many different sides of British pride.

Warsman & Kevin (with Robin) at many stages

This is a collage of inspired images I put together, with the idea of ‘Warsman loves adult Kevin but also looked after him all his life’.  So it’s Kevin at different stages of childhood, with his loyal robot Warsman on hand to pick up after him, hug him and care for him, even when his father Robin couldn’t be arsed.  Aww…

For a Screencast of this picture, from blank page to lineart, go here: http://www.screencast.com/users/GrenamoyaIsland/folders/Default/media/f5c30414-eebf-4b66-83f7-2a0e767a7173

(don’t forget to mute it if you want it without commentary!  or to avoid my slightly bad language.)

Risty from Queen’s Blade, against Mars from Kinnikuman Nisei/Ultimate Muscle

My fiance made a comment about Jeager fearing Risty in our random fandom because of certain superficial resemblances to his ex-husband, Mars.  So this doodle was born!  It probably does Risty good to get out of her weird shoes once in a while, so now we’re inflicting them on Mars instead.  Oh, they’re both so vibrant and red and enjoy the gym!  Risty with the Mask of Madness power would be Miz-style awwwwesooome.  Then we’d definitely know who’d win the Queen’s Blade tournament.

A scribble I did of our loyal Team GB making their way to the Olympic Village.  Robin has been engaged in certain scandalous dealings with Eleanor since he began coaching her for the new wrestling league…and Big Chris isn’t about to let some random Scotsman take advantage of his innocent sister! 😀 What a good brother he is, we love you Big Chris!

Serenna, the sexxay newscaster

Lineart I drew of a new Brazilian character, Serenna Jimenez, who made a brief appearance in a Random Fandom storyline.  Like Angel, she’s a journalist…but she’s a news reporter who was once a porn star!  Yes, our Brazilian girls are sexy and assorted indeed.  I was going to tone-shade her, but I’ll see if I fancy something else. :3

Chris with a durg

A quick nonsense doodle I did of Big Chris yelling at the enthusiatic barking background hype dog from BlazBlue.  He is loud. Hype dog is loud.  They are rivals.

Pregnant Maria with deformed Miguel

Another quick doodle, of pregnant!Maria showing herself off in a bikini, while her brother Miguel hopelessly tries to convince her to cover up.  She never will – this is the woman who flashed her lime green thong at Mass.  Since this was drawn, she’s had her two sons :3

Eleanor & Amy: the Freckle Bitches

This pose I based off a piece from Bible Black, for which the artwork is detailed but I feel a bit creepy (all the women look like strange men to me), so I sought to improve it with two softer-bodied ladies 😀 In our AU, myself and Eleanor Mercer from Honey Blonde (yet more hentai) had been running a rip-off fast food stall for many months.  We basically had a big tube under the ground leading to the local McDonald’s, from which we bought the food, renamed it, and served it to our own customers.  Eleanor since abandoned our illustrious empire to focus on her wrestling training with Robin.  I am heartbroken and alone…but this picture reminds me of what once was. ;_;

Miguel & Chris

I drew this on a whim, I fancied a carrying pose.  Chris looks pretty protective of Miguel, so I think he’s upset over something.  Miguel is a heavily emotional creature like myself, bless him.

Andel & Jade

A commission for a Grenamoya fan, this is a picture of Andel, the camp vampire innkeeper, and his gorgeous little son, Jade.  Stuff happens with Andel and Jade throughout the second half of my novel series, and they both have a couple of fans.  D’aww, Andel, you’re such a sweet old dear with your boy n_n

Roscoe

Another Grenamoya request, this time for one of the troll brothers, Roscoe Tergana.  He’s holding his ridiculously compensatory sword and looking like the cheeky boy he is.  Gotta love Ross, he’s been hamming it up in our AU, too.  Everyone’s favourite dangerously underqualified troll butcher! 8D

Shadow Runner

A requested portrait of Shadow Runner, a new character from the fifth book in the Grenamoya Island Saga.  She is a small and slender land dragon (ie. dinosaur) that helps the troll family on their fourth journey in the east of the island.  Again, she has a few fans already.  People seem to love my reptile characters…but then again, they’re so cute and scaly, how can you not love her?  She’s a cheerful breath of fresh air compared with Lothar, too.

Ramsey & Blanoka

From the first book onwards, it’s Ramsey the goblin, sitting in one of his pensive moods with Blanoka the blind cave dragon.  Ramsey was my companion for many years before I wrote my novels, and like me, he has days when he can hardly face getting out of bed in the morning and just wants to mope like a wet blanket.  One can’t blame him, though, given his difficult past.  I’m going to do these ones up in watercolour, and hopefully capture his delicate, moody state 🙂

Tobias & Ulyssis

Two blond men from The Grenamoya Island Saga who look deceptively similar, and get mistaken for one another at least once.  Toby, the strapping young adventurer bloke, and Ulyssis, the demon who was once a humble human boy, look deceptively good together.  I think Toby wants to either rob Ulyssis or hug him.

Ruri & Jeager

My last sketch for watercolour is a Random Fandom one of teenage!Ruri with her ‘mother’, Jeager.  Ruri was exposed to hormones lately that brought on her long-repressed puberty, and Jeager, being both gay AND overreacting, was quite freaked out by her sudden development from tiny, large-headed child to taller, less-large-headed teenager with breasts.  He was talked around to it, and their relationship if anything is becoming stronger, especially with Ruri warming to Jeager’s new boyfriend, Boris.  Here they are sweetly having hot drinks together.  I really loved how this line art came out, it expresses exactly what I wanted.  Time for watercolours!

More to come, slackers! -dance- 83 What do you mean, I’m the lazy one?

Big Leap Year Art Update!

It’s been too long since I compiled my artwork and unfinished scribbles on this blog so I’ll do it now to get me started.  Came back from physiotherapy the other day and apparently I’m doing well 🙂 Today is also World Book Day!  As an author I appreciate this day of days…not to mention St David’s Day and my dad’s birthday to boot.

Dating back to the end of 2011 before my accident…

Christmas Elves

After I finished my Christmas picture of Angel, I barely managed to squeeze this one in before I jumped on the plane to Ireland for the holidays.  From various places, from left to right: Foless (Lightning Warrior Raidy), Zevran & Fenris (Dragon Age) and Echidna (Queen’s Blade), who in our Alternate Universe are brothers and sisters.  Being elves for Christmas.  And I realise how much I both love and hate drawing bristly garlands. 🙂

Pinkie’s Exercise Centre

My first picture of 2012 is this one of Pinkie Pie from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, advertising her weight loss scheme to help all the insecure ponies lose a little weight after Christmas.  This came about after my fiance tried some Rosemary Conley brand low-fat cheese and declared it to be the work of the devil.  And Pinkie then went on to wear workout duds in an actual episode.  That’s prophecy for you!

Posing Ponies

Along with other pony things came this one of sorta-people-pony-form Fluttershy, Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Applejack & Rarity hanging around in the nude.  Normally that would be a given for ponies, but with their slightly anthropomorphic forms in our AU, they had to cover up.  And it gave me a chance to show Applejack cuddling up to Rainbow Dash…just because.

Octavia & Vinyl Scratch

Another pony picture, this time on request, featuring two of the non-main My Little Pony cast.  They’re so delightfully different, but oh so similar in their appreciation of music.  So naturally they go together.

*

THEN came Hideo Kojima mentioning in an interview that he wanted to do a Metal Gear game featuring the COBRA Unit that we love so dear.  And about a million pieces of artwork came pouring out of my brain!  Mwa ha haa…

Keeping things cartoony, because we’re happy to have them back!

Still cartoony, but now in a hot tub, and featuring The Pain’s awesome manboobs.

Cobra Kids!  Left to right: The Joy, The Fear, The Sorrow, The Pain & The Fury

Now a quick muddle of the COBRA Unit (minus The End, who was old when the dinosaurs were young) as young kidlets.  With many of their fiftieth birthdays coming up in our fan universe (apart from The Sorrow who just turned fifty-one), it’s nice to give them a chance to reflect on their cute youth.  And having the chance to shove in more in-jokes about The Fear’s poverty, The Pain’s Cartman resemblance, The Fury’s love of space…

Miguel (The Fear)’s Character Sheet

I was mulling over character sheets again and decided to do one for The Fear’s incarnation in our AU, to separate it from the bare personality he was given in his actual game.  We’ve done so much with the entire COBRA Unit, even the old man has an expanded outlook whenever he’s actually awake.  So I fiddled with expressions and some poses, stuck a bunch of info on there, and now I have a template for if I ever have the time to do both persona sheets for each member 🙂

Chris (The Pain)’s Character Sheet

And a matching one for The Pain’s developed personality in our AU, quick poses, expressions and a blurb. 🙂 He’s so colourless…

And while we’re on an AU roll and since I haven’t done one in a while, it’s our own Chris and Miguel, in their Metal Gear appropriate clothes, having a moment of luvviness. D’aww…because it’s too damn cute.

Fear Before The Dark

God I was so hyper to do bare feet in this picture and I did.  A more canonical picture of The Fear this time, hanging about with one of his needles, having either just shot up or about to, when his dear chubby, hornet-filled comrade, The Pain, comes to fetch him.  Time for the off!

Fury Before The Dark

I wanted to do these pictures years ago and finally got around to them now!  This time it’s The Fury before the end of everything, having a last minute smoke as he gets into his cosmonaut costume.  Much fun was had scarring his skin and dirtying up his clothes on this one.  Oh, if only it would all end well…

Maria’s Pregnancy

Back to cartoony-ness and our AU, Miguel’s sister Maria is currently pregnant again, this time by Miguel’s life partner, Chris.  And it’s all fiine, just fiine.  He was a bit iffy about it at first but he’s generally fine now, Chris and Maria were each other’s first lover, and he’s generally used to his sister stealing everything from him.  First food and credit cards, and now this?  He’s a very tolerant man.  And Yuri and Boris both dated her in the past.  She gets around.

Nekkid in Graniny Gorki

Because Miguel’s always being shoved around, here’s The Fear in his Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater clearing waiting to (fail to) kill Snake.  But now he seems to have mislaid his uniform.  For absolutely NO reason…I just love playing with anatomy. XP I should have added a bunny in there…or a hippo, just some kind of random animal.  There’s so much fun to be had with feet!

Sheeva B.

Done as a request, it’s our beloved anthro panther, Sheeva, done up as Sam B. from Dead Island.  Because she’s so flippant with people and the two just go together so well…it also suits very well because Sheeva’s last initial is B anyway.  Sheeva B don’ givva fu**!  She cayn’t!

Fear-friend’s Fiftieth

On 6th February this year, on the day I went for my first physiotherapy, our Miguel turned fifty.  He’d been spasming around with horror about it for weeks, but now it’s come and gone…and he can at least feel good that he’s surrounded by people who love him.  Most of the time.

Valentine’s 2012

An incredibly quick sketch for Valentine’s Day.  As is probably very obvious, the original drawing for this is tiny XD It’s quick but to the point.  Yay for Pain-friend and Fear-friend, they’ve been together for about 5 years now!  Aand poor Sorrow-friend and Fury-friend.  Too bad things didn’t work out with The Boss for either of them.  But they have each other, and the old man has his bird.

Brainy Brazilian Beauties

In tribute to three of our random fandom original characters: Chris and Miguel’s adopted daughter Ally, Miguel’s sister Flavia, and their dear journalist friend, Angel.  Because they’re hot AND smart!  Yay for Brazil!

Cobra Unit Friends

And my final, great triumph for this post, it took me many, many hours to do.  It’s a strange COBRA Unit picture with a retro Friends twist (I know, pretty outdated but I couldn’t resist).  Based on one of my favourite pictures I ever did of the COBRA Unit, “Colours of our Unit”, they’re all younger and wearing the same outfits as in that picture…but now with complimentary umbrellas!

Out of interest and because it amuses me, the poses are based on the following characters each from left to right: The Sorrow (Ross), The Boss/Joy (Monica), The Fear (Joey), The End (Chandler), The Pain (Phoebe) & The Fury (Rachel).  Sort of makes sense for half of them, if The Sorrow is boring and educated, The Boss is an anal control freak, and The Fear is promiscuous as Hell.  Now I think we should make The End a failed comedian, The Pain a vegetarian, and give The Fury a long and tumultuous will-they-won’t-they relationship with The Sorrow.  Yep.  That would make things much more interesting.

*

That’s my assortment for now, I’m in the middle of doing my sketchbook art for the Brooklyn gallery and I just finished a commission for someone so I’ve been pretty busy, and with going back to work in a fortnight and fitting in my physio I’m snowed under right now. 🙂 Will try to keep updating everything to the best of my ability.  Onward!

Human Ponies, F.S-Style and Alejandra

My new art for this week is assorted and random.  As well as finishing TWO NEW NOVEL COVERS (yay) I did some other art, and did my full colouring of the human ponies picture, which I also recorded as a screencast if I can bother uploading it for people’s reference.  It’s for beginners really, some nice basic colouring, so we’ll see 🙂

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic characters, human style!

Fluttershy, Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity and Rainbow Dash, all done up together as peeps. 🙂 I’d already done one human picture of Pinkie so only the other five were “new”, but I did my best to integrate their looks, personalities and hair into these human forms.  Next up, my people-pony anthro style lineup!  Ooh, it never stops.

Menace & Angel, in the style of F.S’s Menace & Melona picture

It’s no secret that I love the art of Japanese hentai maestro, F.S.  Between his lineart and his colouring (and that of his team, lol) I adore the detail and softness of character proportions, and his affinity for the more full-figured female (which with characters like Cammesonja, Maria and Angel, suits me very well).  I collect as much of his PG-13 art as I can, mostly Queen’s Blade but some others, and I did this piece based on one of his own images of Menace and Melona.  Instead we have Menace in her “modern” type fitness duds, and Angel, who looks suitably like Menace’s combat instructor Anarista (whom I adoooooore and want a book of!).  I did a softer colouring style to suit F.S’s a little better. 🙂

Alejandra, our OC, as a teenager

Ally is a sweet little thing who normally spends her time as an adorable little girl with fangs and a huge intellect.  She recently returned to her teenage form and went on holiday to Portugal, where she made all the other beachgoers totally jealous.  And she still has her beloved lizard toy. Yay Ally, we love you!

Otherwise in my sketch and lineart bin, I have:

Taokaka in “casual” gear

Smug Sheeva

Maria in her “Pooters” uniform

Terak carrying Synor

…and more!
