Slowly… art!

Oh yeah. The thing I mostly did today while booth-manning? Worked on coloring bigboy/-non-gendered-demonic-entity Lee.

I’m actually kind of happy how the linework turned out on this, so now it’s just, like… trying to figure out how to actually color lineworked art, since I, like. Don’t. Normally.

Ai!

What’s this? A mascot for a (semi) secret new project? Ooh…

Also: yes! I actually inked something! And then cell-shaded it! I, like, never do either of those things but… this turned out okay? There are a few spots I’m not happy with and might revisit eventually before [SPOILERS REDACTED] but, other than that… whee! Crab-robot person! Their name is Ai! Because lawlz obvious jokes.

Elliot.

Version two of this guy, a.k.a. Elliot, redrawn now I’m a bit more used to Clip Studio. Also without using Cheap Hair Trixx™ to hide the fact that, a) drawing ram horns is hard, and b) drawing ram horns coming out of the side of a “human’s”1 head is even harder.

Elliot is our game sept’s resident misanthrope and hacker.2 His hobbies are: telling the player characters’ they’re dumbasses; being extremely loyal to Lex, the son and heir-apparent to the sept’s current leader; secretly writing dirty fanfic; and keeping hundreds of cockroaches as pets in his trailer. If he has to go out in human public, he paints his horns in candycorn stripes and pretends he’s a Homestuck cosplayer.

Not pictured in this version’s laziness: Elliot’s tattoos of Cockroach and the Prophecy of the Phoenix.

  1. Technically a metis Garou in homid form. Also Yes I Know, but… welcome to 1990s-era WoD game rules, I guess. []
  2. Hence the name; pretty much all the NPCs are named after TV show characters. []

Shepherd Lee.

Pencil sketch of Lee from the Space Demons book. Also technically the “tentacles” part of Davey, at least when he’s in that setting and not our MotW game.

This was also my other thing I was going to paint at Continuum, but never got around to because lol finishing things what even is that?

Monstrous paints.

One day, I will finish a painting. TODAY IS NOT THAT DAY!

This is, of course, the slightly more progressed version of this WiP, done while at Continuum 15. It’s mostly me trying to learn to use Clip Studio on my iPad, and… ki-ii-inda getting into a groove for it? I am actually pretty happy how the overpaint is turning out, I just… wish it didn’t take me like five hundred hours to get to that point which… ugh. Go figure.

Also, I need to fix those drips. Yeah. Those ones. Also, lol what even are light sources?

Jeeze. This is why I never finish anything. Cannot. Unsee…

The Monstrous.

Tentacle dad, tentacle dad
Oil-powered, goop-covered tentacle dad
Hunting stuff
Most cringe-worthy puns
Tentacle dad.

So some of you may recall we have a Tradition of always playing a TTRPG game at cons. This Continuum, Alex is running us Monster of the Week. Obviously, I had to immediately grab The Monstrous’s playbook… and totally cannibalized Davey1 because yeah lol originality what’s that? For this version, Davey is a fifty-something ex-Gulf War vet whose “Gulf War Syndrome” involved being possessed/corrupted by some kind of oil-and-lightning-based void horror. Now, he can discorporate into oily smoke to pass through solid objects, as well as use weird mind control powers to make sure his fellow team members are staying hydrated, remembering to pack their jumpers, and other assorted Team Dad duties.

Relatedly: I still totally need to replace my scanner! (The linework for the original is purple and the paper is white, believe it or not, which really says… something about the iPhone’s camera.)

  1. Technically Davey, as Lee, already showed up in the DnD game I ran last year, as the demon “Lord Chaudhry,” and ended the game possessing one of the player characters because lol. []

Making a Play-Doh dragon for your friends’ kid is Art™, right?

(The strips around his legs are “belts” added by said kid, who is apparently like the budding reincarnation of Rob Liefeld.)
