You know more than anyone on earth why that’s probably a bad life choice.
Still working on [this]. And the background is still killing me. I’m somewhere in the homestretch though. I was going to do a bigger clip of the image but I figured it’s probably more interesting to see the same portion I was working on previously.
…And somehow Strife looks like more of a douchebag than he did in the first image.
Tear Grant as Luke fon Fabre
(aka “We’ll leave the danger of middrifts to the boys.”)
I know it’s iconic for Luke to have a middrift. (HowcouldI?!) But while they are cute they’re also a big petpeeve of mine. They’re impractical for a fighter and just make me think of how vulnerable they leave you. The perfect target. Perfect for gutting your entrails. (Not that you aren’t fabulous Luke)
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 #9 (we skipped #8), fourth girl in my current set of five.
Reblogging to put these ladies back in chronological order.
And also for a few minor design edits.
Something to keep you guys busy while I finish working on a commission.
It’s [this lady] again. I’ve started developing a pesky spirit that seems to stalk her around and possess the imagery she creates. It’s a benign enough pest for her to literally brush away, but it has a disturbing persistance. Maybe there’s a possible storyline here?
The guy below is a character who I was fooling around with around the same time I created the lady above. He doesn’t have a gift exactly, it’s more like plants seem to just really like him.
Shirley Fennes as Senel Coolidge
(aka “The only one who might actually get away with that last name.”)
Aa…”Sisters”, right Senel?
The more I worked on this the more I was reminded of how much I ha-ate Senel’s outfit. I have nothing against him. And I like the outfit in theory but it kills me aesthetically! Just…. too much… asymmetry. And badly placed shapes. I enjoyed the challenge though. It was a difficult design to keep close to the original while still changing enough to be more pleasing. I went through quite a few drafts and came out pretty cute!

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!
