It’s been too long! Geez, every time I think I’m getting back into the Dustlander groove, I get extremely busy.
This set of characters, from my Steampunks idea, represents the last of my backlog of work (at least I think so!). I drew this close to a year ago, but it definitely holds up. I’m particularly proud of the larger automaton, cleverly named Ado, because I tried to just smother him with detail. The girl, meanwhile, might need a redesign or two, or I might drop her altogether. I’m not even sure of her name… but I hope you appreciate the close-up of her I added.
What’s up, everyone. I hope you’re all primed and ready for another character sketch, because you’re getting one. New comics are coming, albeit very slowly. Hold me accountable for those, please.
Anyway, this little leprechaun girl isn’t from a series (as if my multitude of series are official or anything). Instead, she’s actually a Mutants & Masterminds (basically superhero D&D) character that I created–I played her in a game with my relatives just this last week. She’s kind of silly for a superhero, but I like her rustic, perky design. I think I wrote a backstory for her, but I lost it somewhere.
That’s about it, so go! Have a good day!
Hey everyone! I had planned to alternate between digital and traditional pieces throughout the summer, but I just had to post this, as it’s already on Twitter–and it’s my first piece of fanart in a while!
Of course, this fanart is more obscure than the stuff I’ve done before. It’s of Austin from the YouTube channel The Eggbuster (formerly ThatOneShowFUN). He’s not the most popular YouTuber out there, but he’s really funny and I feel like he puts a lot of effort and heart into his work, so he’s one of my favorites. His most well-known show is called Eggbusters, which is ironically about confirming or busting glitches in video games, not Easter eggs–but if you’re more into Let’s Plays or streaming, he’s got those and more. I highly recommend checking him out if you need a peaceful, fun way to pass the time.
Funnily enough, I found out that he’d colored his hair back to brown shortly after finishing the picture… but I think I’ll just leave it. It looks pretty good, right?
Back atcha with another Apple Notes drawing, probably the last of its kind. Adobe Sketch has layers and I was able to import the OneNote colors, so soon you’ll be seeing the same thick-outlined, colorful Dustlander style you’re so used to. Will I ever finish coloring the last comic and start on another one? Only time will tell, I guess.
The Steampunks is interesting because I have all these (hopefully) unique ideas for characters, but only a loose plot arc to work with (Ironwood‘s story is coming along quite smoothly, though). Foxhound is my most recent character for this series; I see him as being Captain Wither’s second-in-command, a war veteran with a no-nonsense attitude toward the rest of the Privateers. His majestic sideburns and keen sense for danger give him his nickname–which, like all other Steampunks characters’, is animal-based. Regardless of his personality, I do hope you like his design!
Well, I’m back. Life got pretty rough–like it always does–but at least I have more time to draw nowadays. It is summer, and I did get a job (yay!). I’ll be making sandwiches starting on Wednesday.
This piece isn’t anything new; in fact, I drew it shortly after I got the iPad in December and just didn’t post it. That’s how it’s been with most of my artwork–I’ll have you know that I’ve got a huge backlog of stuff ready to go. Maybe I should post something every day just to get it over with.
Oh, the description. Grea’s character hasn’t changed in the two years since I came up with her, but above is a more refined look than in her first design. I drew it using Apple’s Notes app, but I’ve since switched over to Adobe Sketch–so don’t expect to see much more in this colored pencil style.
Life changes. (The full-color version is here; I left the first two panels for symbolism’s sake.)
Obviously, a lot has changed in the year since I first drew this. Oh, not on the website really, just in my own life. I can’t promise when then next comic will be, but I can promise it, uh, will be. Until then, check out my other stuff!
What better way to celebrate 10 “Shenanigans: A Life” comics, my own birthday and the website’s birthday (both of which to be celebrated next month) than with a guest comic? As you might imagine, Cal drew it this time around. Trust me, he is way better at drawing than this. He just doesn’t do it as much as me.
He wasn’t recording or anything, so unfortunately that means no time-lapse this time around. Be sure to watch the last one, though!
