Another suggestion that came from the land of twitter.
I am still very surprised at the reception my Pin up Space Marines have had over there – I’m glad that it has been overwhelmingly positive though, it gives me encouragement to keep doing them; and I really enjoy doing them. They’re different and they are what I enjoy drawing. Pin ups are awesome; even if everyone and their Mum can do it too~
No video with this one though, sorry. I honestly forgot about recording!
If you didn’t already know – you can support me on Patreon, where I take suggestions, requests and a whole host of other fun things!
I think that is what I am enjoying about this particular series of artwork. I am really pushing myself to try new things and try to make them look better than I’ve done previously.
Either way, I finally got round to doing number 4 in my Warhammer Primarchs series – I went with Vulkan because I just finished reading Promethean Sun and it inspired me to pick up the whole 40k hobby again so I feel like I owed it to Vulkan to draw him.
I think on the twitter poll, I got Sanguinius up next, so he’ll be interesting and a lot of fun to draw up – all those blood drops, grails, wings and pretty things that I try to avoid when it comes to my own Chapter; so much is their denial!
It’s only been a few weeks since I drew anything like this and I already feel well out of practise.
But here we are, some fan art for Inquisitor Jenn and Heretic Deb who are characters over on Abaddon and Teal
I know it’s not my best work, but it felt nice to draw something Hobby related again after the few Primarchs I drew – which I will resume when I am feeling less ‘out of practise’
There is another thought to add to this post though and I hate to drag down a gift-art post, but it’s sorta, maybe relevant?
Since picking things back up here and getting back into the hobby full swing, I’ve honestly questioned myself. For a while I wanted to be seen as a credible and ‘real’ artist. But, what does that even mean? Am I less of an artist because I draw characters in the way that I do? I think it speaks volumes the amount of time I’ve been drawing characters; it’s something that I always return to and yet, I’ve always held this overwhelming sense of shame with it – maybe because I know there are a lot better people out there at it than I am. But, does that matter? Clearly, this is where my soul keeps returning.
Sure, I like painting and dabbling in other things, but try as I might to deny myself the chance to draw characters, I return to it. Always. There has to be something in that?
Then there is that ‘elephant in the room’ does everything have to come down to money?
If I am happy drawing characters, why am I trying to replace it with something else?

In other DeviantArt related news, I have been really pushing to try and get my 10K pageviews on there. I feel a bit bad that I deactivated my old/most used account on there which was near the 100k pageviews marks and I am desperately trying to play ‘catch-up’ with myself. So, if you have a spare minute and are inclined to help someone out, please pay my page a visit?
As always, commnts on here are greatly appreciated too~
Date Report Card Name of Date: Ubercorn
Date Location: Jet Pad
Date Activities: Netflix and Chill; we ate pizza and listened to music; somehow I don’t think Ubercorn approved of my tastes.
Date Pros: Kind, Caring, Confident, Funny.
Date Cons: Long distance relationship, wildly different tastes (He wanted peppers on the pizza, ew) his talk of travelling made me feel a bit like a left out lemon, comes with attachments.
Second Date?: Wouldn’t be adverse to the idea, but I am not expecting that phone call anytime soon.
Just reposting the “First Date” pictures on here with their report card~
*remember to update, remember to update, remember to update*
Jeez, one of these days it’ll go in!
So, on the whole Fangirly front, I might be back in action again? I don’t know.
I’ve been drawing a series of ‘First Date’ pictures with Jenn, my fursona. I’ve been active on dA again and seen that most of my friends on there have a canon x oc pairing. So they have characters in relationship with characters from various media/fandoms (Resident Evil, Casper, Mortal Kombat, Fallout, etc.) And, I am just playing in my own settings; which I love, but it’d also be fun to play away sometime too.
So, I hooked Jenn up with a couple of guys~
Some of the characters don’t translate well to my style of drawing. Like Captain Barnacles from Octonauts – who looks like he is closely related to Pedobear when I draw him.
I’ve also written some date report cards up for Jenns thoughts on her dates as well, which I’ll share in individual posts (and schedule them) in a little while.
I just wanted to share these with everyone, seeing as my last update was a while ago again. My bad.
