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.
I mentioned starting this series a little while ago now, but deliberated on who to start with or how I would write them.
Then I figured, I’d just do them in ‘aphabetical’ order according to my Toyhou.se account!
Devon started off as a redesign for Kizmit; but she didn’t really click with me in the way that I thought she would do. So she was demoted from the name and picked up as Devon. Her name came from the Disturbed song ‘Inside the Fire’ – which is one of my firm favourites of theirs. I think she was given the name around 2007.
She is a ‘Glamfur‘ which was an art movement with the anthro community that started around 2003, when I first started sharing my art online and had some prominent names in LeeLee, Inhix, Silverwing and others. It then had a revival in 2007/2008 which is when I became more interested and aware of it and I enlisted Devon to the cause.
There are a couple of different versions of Devon. The waking world Devon and the dreamer. The dreamer is the one who has blank eyes, crosses and stiches on her face. The waking world Devon is the one who has real eyes. The general story behind her is that she is an inmate at Pillsbrooke hospital – a sanitarium – and cannot tell the difference between being awake and asleep. Everything feels like a dream (or reality)
She is into Nurses, Hair Falls and synthetic hair, she is technically dead and a non-rotting zombie that needs to feed of blood and alchohol in order to survive, she loves cross-gendered people and thrives among the transgendered as they don’t tend to judge her on the way she is and the way she survives. Equally she loves dressing as a nurse as well as in verious other clothing and loves bright colours.
Her favourite music to chill out and rock out too is: VNV Nation, CombiChrist, Celldweller and Icon of Coil.
Her tongue is green and poisonous.
She also loves it when people restyle her hair, as it changes colour very often and sometimes has hair falls in it.
The four pointed earrings are usually spikes, but she often has stars dangling off her ears from the bottom on chains.
Often drawn with drugs and various medical themed times, especially drips!
She has her vagina sewn up and is non-sexually active, but most often than not she has lustrous feelings for people.
Torquemada is obsessed with her.
The above is from what I wrote about her back during that time so some of it may or may not be true anymore! I like it though.
Aesthetically, I have tried to steer her towards traditional goth – when not wearing nurses outfits.

I’ve a bit of work still to get her in the direction that I am after, but I have a Pinterest board set up for her to help me with this. She is a fun character and writing this up has made me realise that there is a lot more to her than I first remembered.
There is another element to her, and that is that my other character Torquemada is obsessed with her – but more about that when I get to writing up his ‘Biggest fan’ column in this series.
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
I’m not really one for the whole ‘adoptable’ scene within the art community. I always feel it’s best to create your own characters so that you can get a good connection going with them.
There are always exceptions to this of course, and when a friend of mine was selling off some of her characters I couldn’t resist asking how much this guy was.
His name is Zydrate – named after a drug from Repo! The Genetic Opera; a film that I still really enjoy even after writing my University dissertation about it!!
He’s a demon/incubus character and I am looking forward to playing with him. I hope you’ll all like him as well. It’ll be fun evolving him from where he was left by his old owner and adapting him into my own ‘vision’ (which will mostly involve drawing pin-ups of him no doubt)
I did some gift art for him a few years ago when my friend owned him!
So it’ll also be fun to see how he looks in my newer art style as this was originally drawn in 2010!

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!
