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.

Finished this last night finally. It’s been in my WIP pile since Feburary. This is a new updated reference for my Hellboy character Toby who is a werewolf. Like Emma, my technopath he’s designed to fit in with the move version of Hellboy more than the comics.¬† As a brief description: He grew up in a slightly off the grid area which was the home to a small pack of werewolves, he had his first transformation at 13 which left him with the ears and tail. His pack was attacked when he was 15 and he managed to escape with some other survivors from the attack. He was living rough when Emma found him badly injured and took him in. He’s generally pretty upbeat and calm, likes to drink tea and meditate. He can ‘see’ ectoplasmic trails, he’s very good at tracking and has really good eyesight and hearing.

 

Anyway Hellboy belongs to Mike Mignola, Toby is a fan character and just created for fun.

Just chucking these up here before I head back to college Thursday.

1. Rank objective piece for Rubus. Essentially based around the idea of ‘Nymph being surrounded by it’s natural features’ Rubus is a blackberry nymph, and has a heck of a ‘tude to boot so this came through

2. Second WIP of my Hellboy OC Toby’s sheet, did some adjustments to Toby’s neck and the wolf forms back legs

3. For an event an Original Character group on DA is holding that has been set up by one of my friends. There’s theme prompts and the first one is ‘Beachwear Bonanza’ and… this happened. My Pooka character Oisin in some sort of silly pinup pose.

Hey look, a reference sheet. This has been ‘half done’ for a week or so so I finished it up. This is a Hellboy character I made up in… 08 I believe. She was resuced from an abandoned RP character and went from there. (not so sure what went on with her hair, wasn’t intending to make it so poofy)

If you want the full story click the link. Here’s a short version:

She’s a 17 year old technopath and somewhat omnilngual whose powers manifested when she was five. Been a ward of the state from a young age. Generally sulky, snippy, irritable and prefers to be on her own. Games a lot, skilled hacker and likes to read.

Did the maths exam, was pretty pointless 10 questions, answered them in 15 minutes and got given a picture of a ‘soup can’ and got asked ‘what is this shape?’ I know I was on a low level math paper but I’m not THAT stupid thank you very much.
