Hello everyone

So, here we go, the start of sharing my anthro artwork with the ‘wider world’ as mentioned/promised in my previous post.

Also, a quick shout out to the person who commented on that post. Your worlds meant a lot to me and I’ve been thinking about them a lot. Sorry I can’t thank you in person, because I have no idea who you are from the name that was left! It’s got me scratching my head – but thank you regardless.

So, on with the pictures.

I’ve been doing a few ‘Redraws’ lately – where I take one of my older pictures and draw them again; using the same character – there have been some modifications to designs where some of the characters have changed over the years though.

They have been a lot of fun to do; because I was once told ‘You’ll never improve as an artist if all you do is copy other people.’ At the time I took the words to heart, because I was rather new on the anthro art scene and the person who told me was really popular at the time; I don’t think they understood the word influence! All I have really done with my anthro art since I started was copy poses from magazines and use “fashion” blogs/boards/pictures as inspiration for outfits.

So, here we are~

 

Hopefully, you can tell the original from the redraw!!

Fallout OC

I’ve been working on making a character that fits into the Fallout Universe lately. For a couple of reasons. I’ve been playing through Fallout 4 with my husband recently.

We originally picked the game up around it’s release date, but something then didn’t click with us. I’m not sure what exactly, but I don’t think we found the construction aspect to the game right for us back then. But I think we we’re playing Minecraft at the time and wanted to make things pretty; which Fallout really isn’t.

Since we’ve not been playing Minecraft and we know what to expect this time around we have been a lot less picky with the construction side of things.

During the course of playing and seeing a couple of online friends own Fallout OC’s for the past few years, I decided to take the plunge and make one for myself to enjoy.

When making an OC for a game in which you can create your the main character to your liking, I think people tend to use the main character as their OC. I didn’t want to do this, because they already have a set back story. So. I created Simon. A narcotic/Jet addicted saxophone player (with no sax) so he’s had to turn to the wastelands to feed his habit, as I think this idea out of the ones I had, has the most scope for long term character development.
So, yeah.
Have a Simon~
I’ll get a full body picture of him done soon.
For his outfit, I am thinking hipster style, waistcoat, rolled up shirt sleeves, converse style shoes and jeans. Purely because it has no practical use in the commonwealth and I think Simon would have sold everything useful already – like his Saxophone, which I imagine a part of him is really trying to get back or something? I don’t know yet.

It’s just nice to have a character I’d like to develop and play with some more.

Scratch Board Monster

I remember discovering scratchboard in the second year of my Undergraduate studies; the second year of these studies were actually my “best” where I felt I was on the right track of discovering where I was going, and what I was doing. I think it might be time for me to re-visit the medium a little more in depth and see what I can do with it; especially with the focus of character design in mind.

The Monster himself came from a design contest from last year; while I didn’t get very far in the competition, I am still fond on the design of the cute Monster. I felt like putting him to use again for the purpose of scratchboard practice.
