picket fence

Was trying to design a human character. Not doing very good, at least I feel that way, but I sorta like this design! He's a fencer who goes around pretending to be a superhero "The White Picket Fencer". Some day I'll get a good out-of-costume design. I don't really like that one at the bottom.

Some random characters, and Hello again!

After a long hiatus, I finally remembered to post here again! I really should use this more often, I'm always making characters and it's be nice to keep it concise. So here's some characters I made up the other day, I felt like messing with color palettes.

(Ordered from left to right)
-Mossy the sloth. no real personality or anything though of for him, not really my favorite one, but I liked it enough.
-Saffron the Springhaas/Spring Hare. She's a timid and gentle girl. She loves to play sports and socialize, but she's just modest about it. She's a very good jumper. This design I liked a lot.
-Greg G. Raff the Giraffe Weevil. not THIS one I had a lot of fun with. He's a private eye, but he only gets the boring jobs! Like spouses trying to see if the other is cheating. Poor guy.
-The last is Nikki the honey badger. She was more of a joke because I ran out of steam, but I ended up enjoying it a lot. She's just a beautiful young lady who likes to party and wants to be your BFFL!!

You can tell him and Saffron are my favorites, as I drew them again and tweaked the designs a bit. Anyway, that's all for now, I'll try to update the HUGE backlog of designs and pictures I've done of my OCs in the past few.. months or so.

Site Update! Three new pictures and an upgrade!

Check it out! 3 new pictures up to see in the gallery! Better pictures of Fiktor in there, if you would like to see, and some new faces.

Also, big news for me, mostly! I just upgraded my host to a new plan (instead of the free plan I had), so now my site will have full PHP support and far more space. This means I can finally use the wordpress I downloaded, and I'll be able to create a special page for my comics! You know, the fancy kind with back buttons and archives. I hope this will motivate me to work on it more regularly. Plus it will look nice.

Character Concept: Fiktor and Faktoid

As the image says! Wanted to make a writer and a robot team of characters based on the words "fact" and "fiction", and I think I am pleased with the result! Factoid might need a bit more work though. but who knows.

My process this time was pretty fun. I wanted to make a pencil-based character, not really knowing what I was I was going to do other than the name pun. Ended up a crow, who I gave a pencil-like shirt with a design. I then figured I could just make the legs function as the orange for the pencil, but a tan shirt still wasn't coming together well. Finally I remembered that skin is tan like a pencil too! I also remembered how some birds will pick all the feathers off of their bodies under stress, and thus Fiktor's final design was accomplished! Adding an eraser-like robot was the easy part, then.

I still do not know why there is a 2 written there. Other than for design purposes, that is. Maybe he scrawled it onto his leg in a daze of midnight deadline-meeting.

Character Concept: Bluebelle, and Site Update!

Bluebelle: She is a pretty little sheep who is just the cutest thing! She's just oh so clumsy, and always forgets to bring money to the bar and club... teehee, oops! Eh, what was that gruff tone just now? Probably nothing!
Also, Site Update! New image in the gallery section. More specifically, a better image of Spookmark.

Character concept: Spookmark

A character design/idea I thought of last night and had to (sloppily) doodle in paint. Really I am more proud of the idea and design rather than worried about picture quality, haha.

Spookmark: It's a cat-like bookmark ghost. Not so much a ghost of any living thing, but more of a apparition resulting from the bookmarked place held in someone's book, unfinished, before they died. It is always searching for the spirit of it's reader to finish the book. It only speaks in unfinished sentences. Very friendly, but don't entrust it to get something finished!
(I say "it" because it has no gender, being a ghost of an idea/situation/object)

Site Update and concept doodles

New illustration added to the Gallery section of the website!

Also, here's a random doodlepage I did, with concepts for the mole character, Sheriff Sharp-Star. I got a nice design for him pretty quickly, so there was only minor changes before his final design. His mole gun, however, took a lot more work.
