Sketches that probably won’t be finished

Heirophant – WIP

hierophantThe first drawing is from March 2013. The second drawing is from today (September 27, 2014). I’ve learned a lot since then. I always wanted to color the original, but I never liked the way it was drawn. Fortunately, I’ve been on a drawing spree and I was in the mood to redo this.

The Unusual Suspects

unusualsuspectsThis is a bit of D&D sillyness that I did to compare different heights and builds (and personalities!).

Characters from left to right:

Brother Wigglesworth: The cowardly cleric who owns an orphanage and spoils the hell out of his orphans by buying them diamond encrusted rocking horses and caviar. He’s on a never ending quest to keep funding his orphanage without sacrificing quality of care. He doesn’t have much experience in the outside world and gets lost and confused quite easily.

Devyn Darkmoon: The wannabe death metal bard with the voice of 1000 dying angels. He’s the only one who likes his singing and he has the personality of a bag of rusty nails to match his terrible voice. He travels the world in search of an audience who can appreciate his ‘music.’ When he’s not traveling, he can often be found writing sad poetry in his diary.

Bunny-Chan: The 9 year old noble girl who inherited the powers of a dying valkyrie and became a paladin as a result. Bunny-Chan is blessed with the strength of a full grown adult but still remains with the brains of a naive 9 year old girl. She usually solves all of her problems by screaming and hitting stuff with her greatsword (which is bigger than she is). Her battle strategy has yet to fail her.

Creighton Snyder: The paladin/fighter hybrid that usually works as a mercenary in order to make a living. Sadly, he seems to be the sanest one here.

The Prettiest Guardian – sketch

sailormoonI… I somehow ended up drawing Sailor Moon last night. I was sketching out a random pose and I thought “hey! this looks like some kinda Sailor Moon pose!” And so I drew Sailor Moon.

It’s worth noting that while I’m note a huge Sailor Moon fan nowadays, she definitely had an impact on my life. If not for her, I probably would have never started drawing as seriously as I did.

I don’t do a lot of fanart nowadays, due to my lack of imagination when doing said fanart. I tend to overthink in the sense that I want to make a carbon copy of the original artist’s style (out of fear that the character might not be recognizable) and I also have trouble coming up with poses.

This happened sort of naturally yesterday and I wish that’d happen more often with fanart. She’s definitely recognizable without being a copy of Takeuchi’s style.

I feel compelled to finish this as Sailor Moon still has a place in my black heart :)
