All right, Cedreau and I challenged each other to draw our Pokemon trainer personas, and since she drew herself with a very handsome Ghastly, I thought I’d draw my dream team from one of my old Leaf Green games: a Vileplume, a shiny Golbat named Pocky, and my prized Nidoqueen, Dame Judi Dench.
I love how much comic artists draw and write about selkies. I’ve seen a bunch of different people do their unique take on selkies, and they’re all different. (Here are a few selkie stories I really like.)
One idea for a comic I’ve been playing with for a while centers around these two girls, who sail the ocean on their own to search for a missing selkie skin. Mursu, the girl on the left, has been separated from her migratory clan of open-ocean hunters and needs her skin to join them again. The girl on the right, who still needs a name (I’m stuck between Emeline and Adelaide) is the daughter of a wealthy ocean trader who wants to have an adventure of her own, despite being ill-prepared for it.
I’ve been calling it The South Seas because I’ve been able to research a bunch of interesting stuff for it: Pacific island cultures, polar exploration, unaided swimming and diving, large ocean mammals, and early ocean explorers.
What started as a quick doodle turned into a full-fledged piece of fanart for Magnolia Porter’s excellent comic Monster Pulse. Most of my followers are pretty comic savvy, but if you’re unfamiliar, Monster Pulse is about a group of kids who each acquire a unique monster linked to one of their body parts - think Digimon with a darker sensibility - and features a cast of sweet, funny characters you can really identify with. These two, Nancy and Julie, are my favorites.
Oh, and the first Monster Pulse book is finishing its Kickstarter campaign right now! Go fund it, maybe?
I read Al as kind of J.K.Simmons-y? Sulla as Mae Whitman, and let’s make Brendan Mark Hamill
O HUMAN STAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER
Here’s a sketch of my friend John that didn’t make it into the Wyoming mini that I still really like.
More refined version of the sketch from earlier.
I’m trying to get better at lighting and color blending in Photoshop. Faces and skin is my next big challenge. >:I Any advice?
How the hell does lighting work.
