Some art before the move

Hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates. Lately my time has been poured into catching all 493 Pokemon rather then drawing. Yes, yes, I know this is a vast waste of my time. Regardless, I want the bragging rights, so there you go. I have 360 so far.

Whatever remaining time I have has been put into my internship or to moving. We're moving about 10 minutes away from where we are right now, and we're moving tomorrow. It's a much nicer neighborhood. Our new place has a tanning room, lol.

Anyway, have some art! Lately my scanner has been picking up scratches and eraser marks that have bruised the paper. I cleaned up the digital versions as best I could, but I couldn't get them all. My scanner is just about to die, and our other one is already packed up. My poor scanner. It's lived a nice, healthy life of 7 years! I'm gonna miss it when it's gone.

These guys are all characters in my senior project novel. I still have about 3 more to design, and I'm not happy with the design of the kid in the lower left-hand corner. :/ He's a toughie. You may recognize him from the previous post, but his personality has done a complete 180. I'd go as far to say that they're really not the same characters anymore. Pyaan, the kid from last post, is going to be set aside to just be a functionless character of mine. This 'new' kid is named Tabby.

I've also been having a tough time naming characters. I need a name for the shaggy looking guy in the middle (who is far more happier here then he usually is), as well as a good pirate captain name, and I need a name for the villain. Other then that the majour characters and places *finally* have a name to them. I'd been working on names for a good two weeks now. Usually it doesn't take me that long especially when I like the characters.

Par usual, they're vaguely based on people I know (personality wise)... but I won't tell anyone who is whom! :)

I'll happily take any suggestions for names if you have them!

In the spirit of playing too much Pokemon, I started working on some things for cons. Well, for when I start doing cons again. I think I'm going to make these keychains.. or stickers or something. Anyway, the only one I really like is the Pikachu. I'll figure out which other ones to do later.

Whoo!

Huzzah, sketches! I tend to ramble about my work but hopefully I'll keep a lot of this stuff short. Most of this was drawn over the course of the past week-ish, but I've been messing with characters and character designs for the past two days. Expect more character things soon! :)

Adelle and Kurori, who are absolutely crazy for one-another. It's a little annoying actually. But it's also a good opportunity to practice drawing things like this. :P

Greylock... I was trying to decide what his 'good' and 'bad' sides look like, but decided to scrap the whole thing and make him a 100% baddie. He's deceptively fun to draw!

----



In the middle is Pyaan... Sorry for the boring pose, I was trying to figure out his character. :P Anyway, he's a cabin boy of sorts. His character got changed around a lot, but since I still am bent on eventually writing a love story with him in it, he needs to exist. However, in the story I'm focused in on right now, I don't actually think he plays a part. Pardon my doodles of Manna and real!Kona-bunny.

The beginning of a character sheet for Adelle. Since this is a style I'm sort of "new" to, I haven't quite figured out how to do expressions with it. I'm sure expression sheets will come along shortly. :P There are 19 characters sheets for Temerity I want to do, but once again that has bee put on the back-burner for another project. Oh well.

Fanart? From me, she who despises such displays of fangirlism? So it would seem... Um. So I totally love Gretta, except for the fact that she speaks in the third person. I guess they were playing hide and seek or something but after a while when her fathers didn't find her, she went to find them. :P The bunny is something that Gretta made in one of the OVAs.. Some how it seemed appropriate she'd give it to Wolfram. I may just finish this one day.. Maybe.

It's Oannes! :D He's a new character, and this was me messing with his character design (don't mind the flaws; this is all subject to change). Part of a new thing.. Something I want to use for my senior project. :) I've already started writing it... exciting! :D He's not a main character, though. Well, not really. He's named for a Babylonian merman lord or something like that. The arc from his arm to his side in the small profile is just to measure where his fingertips would fall.

Hello World!

Yo-ho! I will be adding sketches shortly! :) And hopefully I'll actually update this thing more then once in a blue moon. Hope the red isn't too blinding!
