Monster Exploration Sketches by dragonsong12
Monster Exploration Sketches
Nothing important going on here. I'm going to have a monster show up at some point in the future, and I'm still not sure even what body type I want it to have. So, this is just testing a few different body types.

None of these are even close to final designs. This was all about the body shape itself, and the other cosmetic details were likewise testing things, but not intended to be final. The final version will probably combine some these, and probably have elements that none of these have currently. It's early enough that I don't need to be that specific yet. :D

Good riddance.

Seriously.
Screw you.
Get lost and never come back.

What a long, worthless, and miserable year you've been. I started out the year depressed and I ended it up feeling so terrible that a day I only break down crying once is charitably considered "good".

You've been so awful and ruined so much that I don't know if it could even be fixed in 2016, so hey, thanks for destroying next year too.
Awesome.
Can't wait.

Regardless, I look forwarding to being rid of you forever. Once you're gone, I'm going to do my level best to never think of you again. You did nothing for me. There was never a moment in the entirety of your year that I was happy. You even tried to take the one thing that I still loved from me, but you didn't succeed and now you'll be gone.

I won't miss you. Once midnight hits I won't even think of you.

You're worthless.

You're garbage.

Good riddance.

Hero
Just needed a design for a hero character.
If you're thinking that blade is a bit cartoonishly big, it absolutely is. It's that way very intentionally and for story reasons. :nod:

Conscripted Wrist Carvings by dragonsong12

This is another one of those "this is being posted just for my benefit as a reference pic" type of submissions. Feel free to ignore it, I just wanted to have some kind of model sheet easily available for these things.

Well...I was going to write a journal about why it is that I've been so absent lately, but then I couldn't find a way to disable comments in journals and I decided against it. I don't need the internet to tell me I'm an idiot, I can do that well enough on my own.

Sum up: Life is tough, but not in any interesting, meaningful or special kind of way. I'm just being kind of a whiner and I need to get over it...also I have a lot less free time now and that's making things difficult. That's all.

Comics are still going strong though! No breaks in sight despite everything. It's a small victory, but it pleases me. :) Can't get much accomplished aside from them at the moment, since what little free time I have is devoted strictly to comicking. So that's why you aren't seeing much other work from me at the moment. I just have no time to give to it.
I have another minor victory, though. I've been keeping up with DA somehow. :D With just two months to go I only have three notifications. I might make it the full year this time! I'm weirdly proud of myself!
I have managed to some writing, though, since that's a lot less time consuming and more portable than drawing is. I'm still not a very good writer, but who cares! Nobody's going to read it anyway! (I don't mean that in a self-deprecating way, either. No one's going to read it because I'm not going to post it anywhere. :evillaugh: )

Would you guys believe I actually sat down to write a romance with this story? I did! No kidding! Since everyone else on the planet is all about the romances I decided I'd see what the fuss was all about and give it a go myself! After all, with that many people liking something, it seems pretty clear that I'm the one with the wrong opinion, you know? Anyway, I sat down with EVERY INTENTION of writing a romance...and 40 thousand words later, there's still not a hint of it anywhere in the story. :XD: I'm gonna go ahead and guess that I just can't do it, and that's okay because every other person on the planet can, so I don't think it's really a niche that needs filling.
I think the problem ended up being partially the way I decided to tell the story and part of it ended up being the female lead's character. She's too hostile. And I don't mean that in a bad way, I actually really love her character and it fits with her back story - it'd be wrong for her to not be hostile - but I as the author just can't see her developing any romantic feelings at this point, and if I can't see I can't write it. Another writer could probably make it work as they'd be able to see the romance I'm missing, but for me it just ends up being another character piece.
...which I'm okay with, I like those. It just ain't a romance. :XD:

Anyway, it doesn't mean anything, I just thought it was kinda funny and wanted to share. I'm worried the story itself has gotten kinda boring though, so I guess we'll have to wait and see if I can punch it up on subsequent drafts.

I've always had an interest in cartoons and comics. I work for a living, but spend almost all of my free time drawing, either for one of my two webcomics, or for work you see here in the gallery. Though I don't have any illusions of being "professional" I do enjoy it and I keep working to improve.

Good riddance.

This comment combined with that icon was just what I needed during a kind of difficult time right now.

I appreciate you. :hug:

Hey, big fan of Luke Mackay's RvB art, and your depiction of the series follows his artstyle really close, it's so awesome.

I hope you continue to make more later season RvB scenes soon! :D

Thanks, I'm really glad you liked it!
Yeah, I really love the designs he did for the characters, they were all so distinct and memorable!
I hope to make more RvB fanart, but I always gotta psyche myself up for it because drawing all that armor takes forever! ^^; Also, I only have McKay designs for the earlier seasons and so many awesome new characters have been popping up!

Yeah, luckily the Freelancer saga gave us a good look at some of their faces, I'm most interested in seeing what Dr. Grey and the Generals look like.

But yeah, I understand. Making art in general takes so much time :| (Blank Stare) 

Oh, and also one thing I'd like to see in future drawings of the Red and Blue Captains is their rank on their shoulder pads - like Cpt. Flowers

Oh! Good point, I had missed that before!

Mental note to add that in next time. Thanks! :D

RvB? We're actually a bit behind. ^^; I think we've missed the last couple of episodes.

The one upside of that is you have a bit more to watch when you go back in, heh.
