And not a request: I found this as an uncompleted sketch in the back of a drawing pad and really liked it. Thor!Harley Quinn! Because her New 52 reboot is so awful and the costume makes me feel genuinely bad for her, and I was just getting into Thor at the time, and she has a hammer? I tried to stick mostly to her nasty new costume, to sort of redeem it. Leave just enough of the funky belts and straps and the bare skin to be recognizable, but try and use that to show strength instead of just sexiness.
What on Earth the story would be behind Thor!Harley I have no idea. I suppose the Joker would be Loki or something, and there’d be some fusion of the Thor-Loki relationship with the Harley-Joker one, where she loves him even though he keeps betraying her? Except here she’s a god with a magic hammer who gets to beat the crap out of him when she’d had enough. I dunno, I just when perky girly-girls are also tough heavy-hitters.
Then an original character. I tried to include everything, and use a pose that felt like it fit the description and gave him personality. The six-fingered hands were pretty challenging, trying to make that look natural, not making the fingers too narrow or the palms too wide. I like how they came out though, I was pleased.
Then the Grand Highblood from Homestuck! Sitting on a pile of pillows and chilling, drinking Faygo. This one kind of stressed me out a little because backgrounds, but I did enjoy fleshing out how I interpret his costume. I could imagine doing more art of him… maybe, if I wasn’t so fail about making art at all.
So it’s time to own up and admit that I have NO IDEA how long it will take me to color all of these. It will happen eventually, I swear, but I’m just gonna post the pencils for now so that at least I can stop feeling like such a dork about the whole thing.
Welp, it’s time. All the requests are in, and this will be my last post until Easter. At which point I will hopefully have TONS of art to post, right?
If anyone wants to contact me for any reason, I will still be checking my email. Feel free to write me at firstname.lastname@example.org —I’m gonna have alot of free time to kill and people to chat with will be welcome.
So it’s almost that time again: Ash Wednesday is on March 5 this year, and once again I will be going offline from then until Easter (not that anyone would notice, since I haven’t posted art since December, ugh.) And since I am going to have lots of free time for that month and a half, and since half the point of this little ritual is to try and make myself draw more, I am taking requests!
Fandoms I am open to include: Legend of Zelda, Harry Potter, DC comics, Star Wars, Homestuck, and Avatar (Last Airbender and Korra.) I’m also getting into Marvel’s Thor and have great affection for Captain America, but am less well-versed in those, so don’t ask me for anything there that will require detailed knowledge.
I’m open to drawing all pairings, but nothing explicit. Kinks aren’t an automatic no, but keep in mind the tone of what I generally post, I guess? And be aware that if I get a request that squicks me I will try to keep the spirit of the original idea, but I’ll change it to accommodate my own limits.
I’m also cool with non-fandom prompts, including original characters, but if you go that route then please make sure you include everything I need to know in your prompt—don’t make me do research, or read some long thing. I am a fickle and lazy reader.
You can also ask for specific media (pencil, colored pencil, pastel, water color, acrylics or oil paint, paper-cut, digital) or art styles. I like trying to mimic other artists, though it doesn’t always end well.
I will check my notes one last time on Wednesday, March 5th before I got to church, and then disappear until sometime after Easter. I make no promises to follow through on all requests, mainly because I have no idea how many I will get? But I’ll do my best.
Card for my secret santa at work. Which, okay might give me away, but I have a rep here okay. Trying for more Norse knots, but I’m not really feeling it here. I mean, I like it okay for what it is, but it doesn’t have that feel. Meh. I really need to work more on this stuff if I want to get good at it, and not just crank them out two or three times a year as gifts.
