It’s been a while since I posted here again and as always, I’m sorry about that. Just celebrate in the fact that I’ve returned and I’ve brought Wars and Beee with me.
For those that aren’t in the know about these two, they are from a personal project of mine that has been ongoing since 2006 – what the end result of this project is, I don’t know – but there we go.
I’ve a loose story going for them and these two characters are the ‘mains.’
At the point, I am just content in being able to draw them and sketch them up as I envision them.
I’m hoping to be able to draw them a lot and get back ‘into’ them a bit more again, as back in the day they were pretty much the only thing I did draw. In fact, I’ve really cut down my main character list over on DevArt and currently only have 5 going; including these two, the others being Zydrate – a character I adopted earlier this year, Kiz (who we should all know) and Jenn, my fursona.

I didn’t actually do much with this ‘AU’ version of Kiz, it was a lot of fun while it lasted though!
I’d like to add a new series of posts to the site; I’ve a lot of characters that are a bit… under developed and I think writing them bios and such on here would help.

Grim is a side character in Born to Die, which I never finished, because that is the nature of things I do/take on.
As a little backstory, Grim got his nickname from when he was the lone survivor from an Ork assault and his ranking commissar found out and ordered Hawker be brought to him; ‘The one with the Grin.’ Unfortunately, Grim had something in his ear and misheard the ‘Grin’ as ‘Grim’ and took the nickname on himself.
It’s a shame what happens to Grim in ‘Born to Die’ because I really like him as a character and would have loved to do more with him!
In the spirit of all things awesome being in the same post – I was getting a bit lost with what I had and hadn’t posted – here we have a Pin-Up of my character, Skaejre.
The ‘glowies’ on her belt are from an old technique I used to use when doing full on digital paintings and I don’t think that the two styles blend all that well, so I doubt I’ll be using it in the future; just sticking to simpler cell-shading style.
Below is the speed-video of the line art; I didn’t get the chance to record myself colouring it unfortunately; but there is plenty of time for me to do so with other art pieces.
You might have already seen it if you’ve viewed my main page.
I have made a Patreon account!
It would mean the world and more to me if you came and gave me a follow over there!
You don’t need to pledge any money to follow me and most of my posts will be public – I’ll share things over there that I don’t here, like Speed Paint Videos, Sketches and WIP’s so it’s worth while!
Even better if you’d pledge! I only have one tier for my ‘stuff’ and it’s only $3!
If you don’t feel like following or pledging, then please share this blog post as far and wide as possible!!
I’d really like to give this a proper try and anything like that is a wonderful encouragement~
Another speed paint video for you – I wanted to see how things looked when finishing a picture with colours and such.
I think I made the colouring part of the video a bit too quick though, it’s a bit difficult to keep up with it – something to remember for the next one!
I currently host my videos on youtube; WordPress does have the option of uploading videos, but you need to have a premium account for it (and not the cheapest option either) so I am thinking of ways I can afford this and potentially make the upgrade. For the time being I’ll have to use YouTube and hope that it all goes okay.
I would much prefer to keep things ‘in house’ but when that’s not an option others have to be explored!
The character is Skaejre, the ‘main’ character from my Sea of Souls project.
This came about via an ask on my Sea of Souls tumblr
I enjoy doing art prompts, they give me a chance to draw things that I wouldn’t normally think of.
Also, Feracil being a Pop Star is waaaay out of character, cause, he doesn’t sing!
