A Return? Hopefully

So according to the last time stamp on this blog, my last post was made in December 2013

It’s now January 2015 so I feel that it’s rather overdue for an update

As a general update on myself? I’m doing pretty well, I’m in the second year of my HND Animal Science program, and during the summer of 2014 I picked up a bit more volunteering work and I’m posted in a Lemur Walkthrough enclosure at a local zoo and it’s been pretty fun. Also funnily enough as part of ‘enrichment’ work on my course we get to do practical work at the same zoo so that’s been interesting. I even got to get up close to a snow leopard.

Drawing wise? I seem to be getting back, slowly. Around the end of December for some reason my urge to draw did come back and more specifically working on drawing with my tablet rather than sketching and scanning. And so the following are a few bits I’ve draw up.

This, had quite a long time before it was finished, I started it September and finished it up in December, this is something for a really cool and talented person I know from Tumblr known as ‘karanan‘ online  from the SWTOR fandom (seriously go look at her stuff) the character on the left is a ‘second gen’ swtor character, Axi Revel, a smuggler/sometimes pirate depending on whose definition you’re going on the kid of my Sith Inquisitor, Lyee and the in game ‘Love Interest’ Andronikos Revel, and Nan’s character on the right is one Roscoe Siscovin his Imperial Agent character, and these two have been causing some chaos together fpr a little while and have been having a great time doing so.

Lira, a ‘second generation’ SWTOR character of mine that is the daughter of my smuggler Fira and the in game ‘love interest’ Corso Riggs, who grows up to become a doctor

The one, the only, Hellboy

A little something I drew for a good friend of mine I know through the swtor community on Tumblr. The green guy on the left is my Miralian Jedi Knight, Sylarvi and on the right is my friend’s Human Jedi Knight, Karuki

So hopefully, 2015 continues to be a return to my ‘old self’ when it comes to drawing, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Adventures in Gif Making

Been a while hasn’t it?

I’m slowly getting back into drawing after having an intentional haitus that was way too long. But I’ve in the last week been tinkering with making gifs. This has been triggered by me getting the full version of Fraps so I’ve decided to try and gif up parts of my swtor gameplay.

Here is what I’ve done so far

Making said gifs has prooved interesting as I’ve had to of course first convert my footage into a usuable format then make said gif flow right and of course been contending with gif size limits. But this is an interesting challenge to say the least

Skypin and Fluttershy

Got one new ‘complete’ piece and a few sketches today 😀  photo skypin_zpsa8f518d2.jpg Trade I did with a member on the MLPArena, their ponysona/OC Skypin and Fluttershy, I felt like trying something different background and lineart wise here.  photo naga_zps3382de79.jpg Felt like drawing a Naga, referenced partially from Senshistock  photo piratedoodle_zpsc398cf28.jpg This is more of a doodle, random lady pirate a href=”http://s365.photobucket.com/user/wolfofthestars/media/Art/Dwarf2_zps1956253f.jpg.html” target=”_blank”> photo Dwarf2_zps1956253f.jpg Dwarf rogue, (was silly and drew too close to my sketchbook bindings.

The Huntsman

The Huntsman

Trade I did with a friend on DeviantART.

I quite like the marker tool in Sai and like using it to do background inking. This was fun to work with.

Gusty and Sage



Not much to say, Gusty with a bit of a G4 type makeover, and the image which will be used in my character Sage’s new reference sheet for Toradh.

Have some sketches to get up too. Still unemployed.

Sketches

Just a few sketches

Valentina Silver

Captain Valentina Silver.

One of the character’s from the project I’m currently working on her ‘story’ occurs about 30/40 years after Asilia’s,

Anyway, Tina is a pirate captain. A very good one at that,. Almsost pirate nobility to boot. And her role is helping a girl named Branna track down her father.

She’s suprisingly quite ‘motherly’ at times, and actually has a little gang of ‘Sparrows’ as she calls them in one of the port towns who she keeps an eye out for.

She can also be quite manipulative when she wants to be.

Also has a taste for the ‘finer’ things like wine, and her special weakness tends to be jewelrry and fine clothes.

Other fun fact, she was originally a POTC character but I never did much with her.
