I hope you all have a happy holidays! I drew Rox and Frostbite for this year’s wintery picture I send to friends and relatives in my Yule cards. I hope you enjoy!
A picture I drew! I posted it to my GW2 tumblr account which I am apparently far more active on right now.
My Little Pony paintings I did earlier on in the year. I had fun drawing these! Though I would share the whole set here on tumblr.
Here you go. For shits and giggles. It’s not entirely the same picture. The one from 1997 is cropped since I didn’t feel like showing the whole thing. The bottom was covered in roses.
"Inherit the Earth" (a video game) and "Lives of the Monster Dogs" (book by Kristin Bakis) were the things that inspired me the most as a kid.
My character, Astina. She is from a comic project I am working on.
I have to be honest, I love drawing anthropomorphic characters. They are a lot of fun for me because of the extra expression in their tails, ears, and faces. As a comic artist it is just an extra tool to help tell a fun story and show off who the character is.
I’ve gotten a lot of rude comments from even friends, family members, and comic industry professionals that I shouldn’t draw anthros anymore. It had nothing to do with me, but their own close minded world view that didn’t go beyond their own schadenfreude. On the other had, I found no kinship in fandoms.
I gave up drawing what I enjoyed for a long time because I thought I should just “grow up”. It was a bad choice because I basically killed my muse. For what? For other people to like me? To get jobs in the comic industry again? What a joke. Never let being traditionally published be a huge part of your self worth.
I don’t care about either side anymore. “Growing up” isn’t abandoning the things you love to fit in, but not caring what other people think of you.
All I care about is telling my stories and sharing them with the world, even if a few of those stories have dog girls in them.
More art for EverfreeNW. I’m working on a set of the main characters. Utrecht watercolors on Arches brand watercolor paper (hot press).
I took this photo of my Cintiq screen. XD I am making a six page story in collaboration with Robby Becard for his comic Action Time Buddies. It is full of mass cuteness. It has been a lot of fun working with one of my best friends on a little story again.
For those of you who read the webcomic, there will be a new character in this story as well!
Naiya showed up at the Serrated Blade Tavern for her “hot date” with Rytlock Brimstone. She was donning her finest Lion’s Arch fashion that the other bar patrons didn’t seem to appreciate. After a bottle of Black Citadel brandy and two hours later, she realized that she had been stood up.
She stormed up to his office and demanded to know why he never showed up. “You look like a moa’s ass, get out of my sight!” he shouted.
Naiya cried, convincing herself that she was embarressed that she ever fell for a male with horrible taste in rugs.
(I’m not apologizing for the fact that my GW2 posts are probably going to get stupider and stupider from now on.)
Naiya Thistletail’s main adventure today consisted of infiltrating Blood Legion while dressed as a man. Unfortunately she didn’t do a good job of leaving Spoony, her backpack, behind. (It’s actually a bug. It disappears after fighting the first Blood Legion officer!)
After that she just sat and stared at windmills in Queensdale as she confused the locals. Spoony not present in this picture. :c
