I am still working on my Art Recovery, with the help of The Artists Way, as such I am taking things slowly and one step at a time.
It’s nice knowing that I can still draw and am still creating things; and that people are happy and willing to do art trades with me. This is Saga, she belongs to CrazyOATCfan. Its always nice being able to draw things for other people and seeing other original characters.
A picture for of our Ghost OC’s Kiz and Betty~
I figure, Betty being as elegant and glamorous as she is would take it upon herself to tell her that ghosts can actually wear clothes and here, Kiz is grinning about being naked! I should have added a bit of a blush to her cheeks or something…?
I don’t know, I just picture Better being the sort to wear pretty dresses as often as she can and Kiz… not!
I also figure this is early on in their encounters too, before Kiz meets Fatso, Stretch and Stinkie. I picture Betty being the one to make the introduction to the Trio!
She’d have met Dr. Harvey though and still coming to terms with being dead.
It’s rather fitting uploading a pair of ghosts on Friday 13th!!
I hope you like it hun~
I can imagine Kiz being in denial about being dead to begin with and when she finally realises she’s being told the truth she’d fly around Whipstaff screaming;
“I DON’T WANT TO BE DEAD!”
I figure she’d be one angry little Ghosty to begin with, until she latches onto someone she can befriend and play pranks with – I am figuring one of the trio at the moment; but I don’t know them well enough at the moment to pick one out.. possibly Fatso, he seemed to be one heck of a prankster in the Movie?
The background for this picture was taken by and has been used with their permission~
A Kiz Ghost appears, like something out of your deepest fears!!
Kiz, for the Casper fandom.
It’s not really something I had overly considered before, but because I like playing and drawing with/for my friends, I figured why not. I’d been meaning to do this for a while, mostly because of horrorlandcop74 and her OC, Betty.
How Kiz died: I like the idea of Kiz being a horribly bitter ghost and having suffered an extremely violent death. Namely at the hands of Rhodesl her one time human lover. He’s most likely have finally snapped at Kiz’s attitude towards him (They don’t exactly have a conventional relationship) and he’d have strangled her to death; which is why Kiz wears her collar to hide her shame over the fact that Rhodes was actually the one to kill her.
I don’t quite know how it would happen (I’ve not watched Casper since I saw it in the cinema!) but Kiz would somehow find Dr Harvey and the rest of the Casper cast and somehow find a way to fit in.
I don’t intend to ship her with any of the Ghostly Trio, because none of them really… interest me in that sort of way and I think Kiz would have a lot of difficulty coming to terms with the fact she is dead! But Dr. Harvey himself? Could that be an option? Like I said, I’m not really clued into the whole Casper fandom, but I wanted a ghost Kiz to play about with my friends ghost OC’s
Some more completed commission work to share with you all today. Hurrah!
This one for Shennanigma via DeviantArt.
I was asked for a specific sort of pose and because I wasn’t 100% certain on how to go about what was asked for I sent the above 3 pre-pose sketches for the client to choose from. Which they did~
I don’t have a video for the line art on this one as I was working on it on and off over a few days – I had to sneak some time in on Sunday to do the initial sketching.
From sketch to line art there was little changes needed, she just needed a cheeky grin rather than looking bored!
I must admit, the entire process was a joy and Shennanigma was wonderful to work for!
I’ve never actually coloured latex before, but I’ve wanted to so it was great to have the chance~
My half of an art trade with CrazyOATCfan of their clown OC, Sparky~
She was a lot of fun to draw and I really enjoyed working with her vibrant colours!
I must admit, I found her amount of detail a lot to cope with – I don’t know why, but it seems a bit of a task compared to the stuff I usually do; even the space marines. Maybe it’s because of all the diamonds!
No video for this one. Sorry.
I’ve been working a bit more on Ethan Russo, a character from my Sea of Souls project. It was this character that started off the whole thing as it was him that (oh so cliche) came to me in a dream – with his portal nightmare in tow.
It’s taken me a while to work him out and I’ve got a long way to go!
His surname; Russo, came from looking at my father drinks cabinet and seeing a bottle of Russo limoncello; hardly exciting stuff as it’s a common name, but I’ve often taken inspiration for names from things around me.
For example, Argur – Feracils demon – is named after a particularly smelly cheese!
Out of the two sets, I don’t know which one I prefer – the top of the two was how Ethan originally looked, but I have precious little of him drawn so I wouldn’t be losing any sense of attachment or anything if I did switch.
I think the best way to go forward is to do some more sketching and writing and see what sticks.
