Holla! Evening tumblr, happy birthsgiving!
Like I said in my previous post, I drew something to celebrate the occasion! :3 I never got to draw a group picture for my hommies online, so here it is now! Better late than never, I guess. Not to be sappy, but I’m really thankful for my friends here online as I am thankful of the ones I have offline. I’m also thankful to those I met in the past but have moved on, awesome new people I meet, and my followers who put up with my crazy shit XD
Anyway, the top picture has Val with a lightsaber while Phee is hugging her from behind/the side/side-behind/Christian Side Hug like a cute koala. Mei is eating some KFC and being a cutie :3 She’s wearing a poorly drawn version of this coat, btw. Just to credit the maker and all that. And since I don’t have a reference of Nare’s OCs, I drew Slevigne from our Balestra project as a stand-in for him, being amazed at the lightsaber.
And since it’s also Celveryia Lazarus’ birthday, I drew a chibi of him as a part of the Birthsgiving group picture. He’s serving a Kiel Cake, which is basically Kiel’s detached head. Relax, he’s an android, he’s doing fine (blatant lies). I’m sorry if I botched any character designs.
Das all. Val out.
Oh god, the “what the hell?” look Lazarus has is great. XD (And geez, Mei. I get that you were mad at Kiel, but I would have thought the dress was more than enough to get back at him…)
But these are adorable. ♥ And you put Mei in that coat of all coats… that thing is gorgeous. ;n; And her eating KFC… YOU COULDN’T WAIT FOR THE TURKEY? WHAT’S YOUR PROBLEM?
Also, Val with a lightsaber… God help us all. |D;;
Heehee… *huggleclings Varru* <:3
That group shot is all kinds of crazy. And awesome. Crazyawesome. xD
We never have any sympathy for poor Kiel, do we? Oh well. He’ll be fine. >:3
(I just wonder what torment they’re putting his body through while his head gets served on a platter… o.O)
Thought I was done posting art for tonight? Wrong! But seriously though, this is the last one this evening XD
I tried doing more coloring. I made this a few days ago, I just thought I’d post it today because today is awesome. Still used a touchpad, though. I’m way too lazy to even get my tablet that’s just sitting on the table right in front of me. I chose to color Phee’s picture because it’s the cleanest one I have, the others need a whole lot more cleaning and doing that with a touchpad would be hard x_x;. So, I played with the layers thing on GIMP and just went to town with it. Added shading, the wood textures, a background and the Stark Industries S-Phone I all snatched from Google images XD Yes, the perspective is bonkers with the wooden surface at a weird angle, but I’ll just chalk that one up as Val’s drunk-o-vision.
The fact you even attempted this with a touchpad is crazy. Use your tablet, girl. D8 Your life’ll be made a whole lot easier.
Either way, it’s definitely looking great, ‘specially in the color department. You’ll have a hang of the layer thing in no time. I’m surprised you attempted shading so soon, subtle as it is. Still, lookin’ good, so keep at it!
FJDKLJF- Val. Honey. Sweetie. You’d better get really used to living in your bed because I’m never letting you leave it. >:3
Seriously, you’ve gotten some really good practice in a really short span of time! I haven’t even updated my About page with the flat colored version and I already have a better one to replace it with! o_O
Keep it up! Maybe give some other characters more attention. Get that tablet out and do some cleanup work if you have to. I know you can’t get enough of me and all, but we can both make some sacrifices for our art. ^_~
So I attempted to start on some full body sketches of the main characters to be featured in Celverium Alliance before starting on potential portraits, but… that plan kinda fell through when these turned out awful and I drew too large on the paper so their whole legs weren’t there. :D;
I liked Mobius when I had finished him initially but now I kinda don’t like him. Val’s Kiel turned out HORRIBLE god I am so sorry. Phee’s Miss Valentine turned out sorta well but her arms are all sorts of weird.
WELL I tried. Tried and failed, tried and died. Tonight wasn’t a drawing night apparently despite my wanting to. xD;
(I am so mad at you, Kiel. SO MAD. ;_;)
If these are bad, Mei, I want your art skills more than I thought. D;
I can kinda see how you wouldn’t like some details in all three of them, but the pose on Miss Valentine is absolutely perfect. The other two are great too, IMO, but I saw that Valentine and thought “YES. She should have that pose. 8D”
I’m confused. I want to gush over it, but if you think they came out terrible… ;~;
(I guess I can just look forward to someday seeing something even better, then. ♥)
Round 2 of my magical girl OCs in Tekken Tag Tournament 2!
This time I used two characters I’m not all that familiar with yet. Isidora, or “Isa”, is portrayed by the robot girl Alisa Bosconovitch. Isidora doesn’t canonically have such awkward pose movements, or rocket boosters, or chainsaws on her arms… but she is based on Mei. So we’ll just say this version is part jet. *hit*
Finally, Kiseki is a customized Miharu Hirano. She was the easiest to customize - that top even came in pink. I only had to lighten it and the jeans up to get the start of the right kind of color scheme. Like the others, Kiseki is loosely based on an old mutual friend of ours.
I should be able to put them in some pretty dresses and make Tekken versions of their magical girl forms next. The actual story concept uses a masquerade theme, but I’m going to have to compromise with the limited options available to me. xD;
My take on Megumi’s redesign for the queen of my kokoro.
I tried to add some things to avoid just redrawing what Mei already drew. Hope I did okay, and I hope you like it. *le shrug*
I love the boots you gave her in this! ^_^ I gave Mei one of the other designs I was considering for her sketches, but I think when the finalized 2012 design is drawn, it’ll be with those boots. :3
And you came up with some neat stuff for her top, too! Though I can’t help but wonder how many characters you’ll work Phee’s sleeve lacing onto somehow. ^_~
Mei was nice enough to scribble down some concepts of my character Megumi from references I gave her to help me redesign her outfit. And they turned out so cute, I had to post them. ^_^
Minor details might still be changing, but I needed to pick a top for the outfit. And the top-left sketch is our current winner. :3 Thanks for the assist Mei! ♥
(By the way, Mei reached the end of the page on that last one. That’s why Megumi’s bending her leg to show off her boots. xD)
The results of my free time with Tekken Tag Tournament 2 over the past few days. I used the customization feature to make OCs from my original magical girl concept that I work with on and off. ^_^;
This particular duo is Vanessa and Monica, portrayed by a heavily altered Lili Rochefort and Jun Kazama. I actually get confused playing them as a team sometimes because I see blonde hair and Lili’s moves pop into my head. xD;
Vanessa as a character is loosely based on myself, and Monica on my now-girlfriend Val. The rest of the group (and maybe new outfits based on their magical girl forms) should be coming as soon as I figure out what characters to use, and get enough points to buy the right customization items. :3
(P.S. - Look Val! I even managed to give Monica her ponytail chains. xD)
Kiel’s prototype design for Continuum and Celverium Alliance XD He’s the resident pretty boy (don’t let my lack of art skills fool you, he’s supposed to be pretty Dx) nerd with super speed reading and ramblin;, magic tricks and knowledge that would make the Did You Know blog blush. He is also the resident Butt Monkey.
Anyhow, I haven’t thought of his design much until now, so I just went ahead and draw him based on the vague descriptions I made of him before. I based his jacket to Sofia’s, which his twin sister made for him as a joke because he has an unrequited crush on Sofie. Don’t mind his pose trying to look all badass, btw. I couldn’t draw well enough as I’d hoped so I just gave him a frown and a couple of heaters. His hands look really terrible before I drew the guns on his hands XD.
With the way he looks I guess he’s saying “Back away! I’m not doing any more of those Waveya dances! >8(“
Having had some input and participated in a lot of discussion, lulzy and otherwise, about this character, it’s pretty awesome to see him finally designed and drawn. :3 I’m honestly surprised he got the full-body treatment before Silke did, though! ^_~
I guess that’s what happens when you decide to actually use him in a project, though… lol. And he really did come out awesome, Val. ♥
Now to put him in that maid outfit and have him perform the Flashback dance… *hit*
(P.S. - I love the idea behind the coat too. xD)
Celverium Alliance - The Final Product! (Or is it?)
Nope. This sucks. Do the world a favor and delete this from your Photobucket and burn the hard copy. That would be lovely. Thanks.
Especially since I drew this on a very small piece of paper, on my lap, while
drunkreally tired! D8<
Craziness and kidding aside, I like how this looks. It’s really messy and it could have been better if I practiced more in the past, but I did what I could with my limited time and skill XD. I like the overall look I managed to get for the whole thing. I said before that I like how Mobius and Sofia looked, and now I like them more XD I think I did a good enough job in drawing Mobius in my style. He’s lookin’ handsomu :3. Also Phoenix’s coat looks better than the non-shaded one, imo.
Anyway, I hope you folks like it because I sure do :3
Shut up Shadow Val, you don’t know what you’re talking about. 8|
Also I already mentioned before how badass the three looked on their own, but being put together in a big picture like this just makes them even more awesome. Though in the back of my head I’m like “GEEZ GUYS WHAT DID YOU DO”
Seriously though, there’s some badass goin’ on all up in here. I swear I can’t think of anything more to say other than “HO CRAP THIS IS BADASS” xD;
Continue being awesome, Val. o7
I’m with Mei on the “What the hell did you guys do?!” thought. xD
And, of course, the fact that they all look badass. I can totally see this as them being in the middle of things and just happen to strike an awesome group pose in the process. With Mobius’ weapon providing something similar to bishounen sparkles, apparently. (I’m sorry Mei, I couldn’t help but see it that way. xD)
(Otherwise, I imagine the three of them just looking at the destruction around them and being like “… NOT OUR FAULT! D;” *shot*)
