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.

Got some more sketches, been somewhat productive as of late. And I really am running out of titles for these sketchdump posts.

Playing around with the idea my Zabrak Trooper, Tirese on SWTOR has more than just the face tattoos, this is supposed to incoporate the galatic republic logo

More SWTOR stuff, the zabrack (left) is Yavara, the Twi’lek (right) is Sharo. Yavara is the aunt of my trooper, she fell in with Sharo who at the time was a cantina dancer for a minor crime boss, Sharo decided she had enough so with Yavara’s help she left. They are now a part of the crew of Sharo’s brother, Rylev.

Concept/sketch of one of the characters from the project I’m working on. This is Willow ‘Will’ Marcks. She’s a revamp of an older, not used much character of mine. Will helps out Asilia during the story as she is the more ‘streetwise’ one. What she is waring is fairly typical lower class clothing. As I mentioned women wearing trousers isn’t that out of the ordinary for ‘lower class’ citizens. As it’s a practicality issue.

And to cap it off (well it is nearly Valentine’s Day I can get away with drawing this sort of stuff) some fluff of Torian Cadera with my Chiss bounty hunter Zanearo. Referenced from an image I saved ages ago but can’t find a source for, it is orginally from Tumblr though.

So I’ve been quite into SWTOR latley and was playing around with what the kids of two of my characters and their in game LI’s would look like.
Left: Daughter of my smuggler Fira and Corso Riggs. She’s quite like her mother in terms of personality in the sense she’s quite adventerous and wants to help people. She has a scar on her chin from something that happened when she was a ‘little’ kid (she can’t quite remember, she thinks she smacked into something) She speaks with a drawl quite similar to her father. For some reason I just pictured her in a fluffy somewhat oversized jacket/coat She wants to become a medic.

Right: Daughter of my sith warrior Rayphara and Malavai Quinn. No idea who she’s looking disapprovingly at, it seems to be her defauly expression. I think I had intended her to have scruffier hair but that didn’t quite work out. She’s pretty skilled in mechanics/robotics. She’s relativley well adjusted for being the child of a Sith (She takes more after her father at any rate) For some reason I imagine she gets told off for wearing her goggles, and for spending too much time on the Holo-net. (and if there was some sort of Star Wars equivillent to Tumblr she’d probably be on there)
