So in my normal LJ!fail, it's been a while. Been working, showing my mom Farscape, watching random anime and jdrama. Pretty much same old same old. And drawing.
(Though a week ago went to NYC for a bachelorette party, which ROCKED! I think I could move to NYC for the food alone ^__^ There were also pretty views of the city, ridiculously fun karaoke partying and...interesting taxi shenanigans...Only in New York could you hail a stretched limo...and a party bus. ^__^)
To that end, thought I'd post some of the random art I've done over the past few months.
I did this pic as a gift for two of my Merlin meetup friends, who's wedding I went to London for at the end of February. HOMG, the ceremony was epically awesome, took place at a con, and full of lots and lots of various fandom amazingness! A whole bunch of us from the Merlin group were giving a joint present and I did this as the card's cover. First time doing chibis for Merlin, but they were a blast to do.
So a few weeks back I went through my semi-annual rereading of all my sister's YGO fics (because basically she's the only person I can find who's written just straight gen cute brother stuff for YGO and in general I'm not a huge fan of that series, but oh do the Kaiba bros push a LOT of my major buttons) and so was randomly sketching them at work. Liked the way this one came out, so I inked and colored it.
A little before my Mom's b-day, we were have a discussion on family genealogy (my dad traces it extensively) and about the plethora of rather cool names we have on both sides of the family (I've been known to use my dad's research as a source of inspiration for characters' names in the past) and so there I was saying that even if Dominic *was* the black sheep of the family (oh the glorious family gossip! ^_-), I still thought it was a rather awesome name and while we were at it, Dmytro, on the other side of the family, also had a rather badass sound to it. And mom, being the crazy awesome slash fangirl that she is was like "oh, you should totally do something using those two names...being hot and slashy." So, this was her b-day present. Neechan and I have sorta plotted a possible back story, but the original inspiration was just the badass-ish nature of the names...and the need to slash them. ^_-
At work, during meetings and sometimes while distracted at my desk, I've been sketching a lot. Here are a few of the ones I've liked. I have nooo idea who most of them are, just random stuff that popped into me head. (Except the girl in uniform on the right, who's a char from my sister's novel who I adore and who's costume design I was fiddling with...)
As ever, C & C very welcome.
