Tear Grant as Luke fon Fabre
(aka “We’ll leave the danger of middrifts to the boys.”)
I know it’s iconic for Luke. (HowcouldI?!) And it’s not that they aren’t cute but mid-drifts are a petpeeve of mine. They’re impractical combat-wear and just make me think about what big weak spots they are. The perfect target. Perfect for gutting your entrails.
Anyway, jumping the gun a bit here, but I wanted to post something up since it’s been a little while since my last one. This is the first heroine where I gave a weapon colour to something abstract, her voice! This is actually the early design that I nailed down for Katsucon. You got to get a peek at it back in February if you stopped by my booth c:
This is a part of the Heroines as heroes set I’m working on from the Tales series, where I’m drawing all of the ladies in heroes clothing. This is girl #8 (we skipped #7), fourth girl in my current set of five.

Dr.Sketchy’s Baltimore - 04/22
It’s almost been a good year since I’ve been to Sketchy’s and not for lack of wanting to, but simply being unable to go. It was nice to get out of the house and do some figure drawing with some lovely ladyage.
The messy squiggly drawing is a non-dominant hand drawing and the themes for the crazy costumed ones were “Nerf Gun” and “John Waters” which just led to a very divine Divine. (I wont pretend like I dont enjoy making ladies fabulous)
My figure drawings are not shabby for having been a while.
Claire Bennett as Veigue Lungberg
(aka “I ask this of all of you who share the gift of life…!”)
…and for those of you who don’t know what that quote is from, its from Kihel’s speech from Turn A Gundam. Like Claire, Kihel switches places with the leader of another race and is forced to make a moving speech. Unlike Claire, Kihel was an aristocrat interested in politics so her speech was good enough to both fool and move millions. Claire was from a rural town and made hers about pie. Peach pie. You were so close.
But this is why I have her holding an olive branch with her flowers. I’m not a big fan of yours, but I really like that you stood for racial equality. I also like that you almost kinda look like Saber. This is one of my favs so far, so way to go Veigue!

A little doodle I did a few years ago that I still think is adorable. I was thinking of revisiting this… These kids are Mortar and Pestle, characters of mine who are street performers.
So what have I been up to?
Still looking for a job, actually. But I’ve been finishing up some commissions! This is what that looks like. This is for my lovely friend Laitma.
I’m still deciding on how Strife (left) is trying to be to harass her poor, agitated Ian (right). Not that it’s difficult for him. He’s the type of person who annoys people even when he doesn’t mean to.
Super sketchy doodles done before bed last night. I’ve been thinking a lot about this character again. She’s had a lot of different appearances in my sketchbook (and is actually the same girl on my website)
This is actually the first time I’ve actually drawn “her” and not just visuals around her making illusions out of smoke and vapor. So it’s interesting that she came off more predatory and less like the aloof hero she had in my earlier sketches a few years ago.
I’ve had a few ideas but I think I’m starting to find a story for her. If nothing else, I’m 90% sure the bottom-most image is going to end up an illustration.
Now here’s something neat for you artistic types:
GagaSticks…. They’re like… collectible cards. Or maybe business cards? But also magnets. That come with a stick of gum. (That’s a hell of a lot)
I know I posted about them before, but here’s a view of a promotional sample I received so you can see what they look like. Basically both the magnetic business card and gum come foil wrapped as you see to the right one side with an image of your art and the other like a business card.
On the website itself you can either buy a pack with your choice of artist’s cards/magnets. Or you can do what I did and buy a pack of your own to hand out.
I think the concept is pretty neat~ How is that for a conversation starter?
