Did a lot of concept art for the story Kait and I are working on, and one requested Steampunk Inspector Gadget.

Oh god my hand hurts.

Starting a long overdue revenge story on Drawchan. Time to channel a little Frank Miller.

He murdered a bunch of (innocent?) drawhores. Myself included. Justice must be served. Even if I've gotta get dirty to do it. BC

Not my neko-catgirl-desu-desu-nyaaaaaaaa~ , the lovely Junk just keeps making characters that GODAMMIT I WANNA DRAW.
Also I am toying with how Bon should look as an older dude. Kinda makin' me think of Willem Dafoe here a little. The tattoos are veve for Dhambala (chest) , Baron Samedi (closer hand), and Papa Legba (half-turned hand) . Bon's big into the voodoo, being a Louisiana boy with some close personal experiences. And I can already tell these tattoos are gonna give me trouble, but they're such a nice touch I don't think I can part with them (or try to convince my co-writer to, more accurately.)

Streamed some ~TRADITIONAL MEDIA~ last night, which was an awkward process of dubious visibility, but the poor suckers who came along for a watch seemed entertained. I'll have to get an honest to god webcam and a better set-up if I want to make that a more regular process at all.

In no particular order:

Color and the wolf-guy were requests.

Work in progress. Wrote it as I went, with a brief IM hashed out intro that I need to illustrate. This is why the dialogue sucks and feels clunky. Gonna rewrite a little after some sleep. This was meant to go somewhere frivolous but kinda wandered into dark waters. The curly-haired Cajun belongs to my co-writer Kait.

Edit: Blogger seems to have made it tinier than it is. I have found the image size limit, I see.

I can't stay away from da voodoo. Voudan to be technical. It's such an interesting pantheon and jumbling of colors into something that is just so incredibly VIBRANT. The Ghede alone are awesome and coarse and raucous.

So I spent the past two nights doing some general research and picking and drawing a Loa for Victor. I picked Baron LaCroix, Baron of the Cross, one of the leaders of the Ghede.
Messed around with sketches and finding little details, like sunglasses with one lens popped out, sacred colors, that kinda thing.
Finally grabbed a sketch I liked..
..and digitally inked it (with heavy anatomy tweaking) into this.
A lot of fun and something I'm rather pleased with. I do have some rum. Maybe I should leave a little bit out as a mark of respect.

Hunter S Thompson themed freebie thread. Played the audiobook of his "The Rum Diaries" while I drew. Went over pretty well. :3 Will continue and try to acquire more HST books. Very top bit was drawn as encouragement art.

Assorted sketchery, one of which is part 2 of my entry in silly comic RP thing. George has a thyroid condition. Bl OBVIOUSLY.

It's nice to be back in range of my tablet.

-but then I was moving around so much that I barely had the time to sit down and draw anything at all. Most of my sketching I got done on the plane, or little figure drawings at the airport. And unfortunately for you, I did it on my handy dandy tiny sketchbook that fits in the backpocket of my jeans, and was never meant for scanning or laying terribly flat.
Anyhow, did some planning for Victor's childhood and development. This is how I hash out most of my ideas.
Tiny little comic thing that is unreadable...
And some hastily scrawled items from the Met's Arms and Armor exhibition. That is a TIFFANY COLT with LIZARDS ON THE HANDLE. It was so, so pretty. ; w; (And below it is a 16th century German GUNBLADE *cough* I mean hunting knife/pistol. They even engraved a calendar on it. So handy. :B And useless. )
View from my seat at the Peter Gabriel concert. Wheee, feet.

This was sketched on the way home. Lots of idea shuffling and brain bits sloshing around.

There was more, but I figure this is enough of a deluge and it's all just random little figure drawings for the most part.

Random collection of sketches and a WIP shot. Top one done because I had leftover ink and a small square bristol pad I wanted to try. Pondering doing commissions on that one.
