wanted t o draw more but i am tired and am bed, and so here is a giant eyeball and a drawing of funnelcake’s face. i’m really sorry. i mean look at that eyeball. i’m sorry
ah, i’m so happy for you! i’m glad they could help you like that, that makes me feel like i made a difference, thank you for telling me. ;o; i’m glad you’re happier now too, i know how hard it is to struggle with trying to find a label for yourself.
also, i think you could pronounce prinxe however you like, but i saw someone who suggested “prink-s” like a hard x sound, or you could pronounce the x like a z.
river looks like a fucking hobbit in this style.
i forgot their flipping cheek spots but i don’t give a crap. the colors are all flip flopped on purpose.
ohhh, cool!! i didn’t know that! that’s really reassuring actually because i was worried that something was going wrong. thank you for letting me know!
i drew another design for redbubble, you can buy it here. i don’t know why the saturation looks weird in the preview but i uploaded the correct image so maybe it will print correctly?? who even knows.
ps you should preview it on a black background to see the umbrella effects
(forgot to mention this is a redraw of a really old doodle. so it might look familiar)
a multitude of shitty doodles.
also: i am thinking of permanently giving river two eyes and calling them an oni for a couple of reasons (their physical appearance otherwise would not change), the foremost of which is that cyclopes in this universe/setting are the racial equivalent of white people w/r/t privilege and oppressive power over other races. river was a character made independently from, and BEFORE the setting i put them into, so like retrospectively in the grand context of the story it doesn’t make sense for them to be a cyclops unless i wanted to write a white savior story which i???? don’t want to do. i am retroactively trying to fix these glaring mistakes i’ve made in the plot and one of the more unfortunate ones is that i have to change the main character’s race to better reflect what i’m trying to get across.
the second reason is that river is fucking hard to draw. i don’t have this problem with any other cyclops character of mine, it just seems to be RIVER who gives me endless headache on top of headache when i’m trying to draw them. i mean for god’s sake look at the consistency between every time i draw them and it’s REALLY FRICKIN OBVIOUS that i struggle. i’m really tired of struggling, i just want to start drawing this stinking comic without having to go back and fuck around with things to make it easier on myself. like, i barely ever draw forrest but that’s because forrest is ridiculously easy to draw. i could draw him all day long and never get tired of it because HE’S THAT EASY.
this is not a thing i am asking for opinions on either, i would just like to kind of put it out there for the few who might care.
here’s a masada from yesterday (i finally figured his face out)
i finished one of these (nervous jigging)
$2.40 for a sticker is a bit much imo but you can buy this as a t-shirt or sticker right here if u want.
i’m thinking about selling stickers on redbubble or smth and this is one of the things i’m working on ???? ??? bleh it doesn’t look very good
long story short i need to start making money somehow because jobs are impossible to find and i have student loan debt i need to pay back. i can’t do commissions for a variety of reasons. can’t, not “don’t want to,” literally can’t.
but everyone and their mother is hard up for cash so i don’t think anyone will bother but i figure it’s better to make the attempt anyway. the sticker template is the same template used to make t-shirts so i guess i could make t-shirts too, not that i would ever want to wear this on my body. that’s just me though.
anyway here’s a wip of madotsuki holding her knife. i want to do the maneki neko one too, i already have a sketch. i might just give up on this one i can’t make it look better than “eh it’s not TOO UGLY but nothing special.” if nothing else it was a learning experience.
sooooooooooooo idk if you ever wondered what it might be like to have frickin enormous resolution stickers from me, it’s not far on the horizon. i want to do stuff from fandoms i’m into so like, dmmd, oofuri, nge, madoka, free!, maybe motorcity?? crap like that.
even if you aren’t finishing it, and your reasons are entirely understandable, ten pages is a hefty amount! i’ll bet you learned a lot just getting this far whether you realize it or not. 0v0 the panel composition is really nice.
i feel like i have actually! it was a pretty good mental warm up since i haven’t drawn comics in over a year maybe? it was good practice if nothing else and i don’t regret doing it despite not wanting to finish it.
i’m not going to finish this. um mostly because of my own insecurity (and that fact that there isn’t really a plot it’s just like slice of life between a kid and an angel so i don’t really care about giving it up since there is nothing important to convey). it felt like a waste to not post it since i did finish drawing ten pages.
so here it is without the dialogue because idk i didn’t want to include the dialogue. it’s not hard to guess what’s going on.
koujakuweh: OH NO…SABLE IS SO CUTE THO…
koujakuweh: POOR CHILD
koujakuweh: also i think im watching too much oofuri because god
koujakuweh: he looks so much like abe
clear’s umbrella: YEAH HE DOES I THINK THAT WAS SUBCONSCIOUS
clear’s umbrella: to me he looks completely different then i’ll like look at a screencap of abe and i’m like
clear’s umbrella: i fucked up
koujakuweh: YOU KINDA DID. THAT DROOPY TIRED LOOK
koujakuweh: THAT HAIR
clear’s umbrella: YEAH
clear’s umbrella: OOPS
this is probably horrible and ridiculous but here it is. here is a thing.
um i guess. i can explain that traditionally in the kindom terid’s from (it doesn’t have a name because i’m really bad at thinking of names it will eventually But), members of the royal family stop cutting their hair after becoming king/queen/ruler, so they have like elaborate hair pieces and only nobility are allowed to wear their hair past a certain length in public or it’s considered disrespectful (most people keep their hair cropped pretty close). they let their hair grow until their death so they kind of grow into these larger and more intricate hair pieces (they flatten out after a certain point because of weight and gravity lmfao) and some of them are passed down through generations and shit and yeah. terid still has a few but he doesn’t wear them because they’re really cumbersome and make doing anything but sitting still in a chair pretty difficult to do. the formal dress from his kingdom is generally pretty um… big. like, flashy, and large and in the way. it’s made to be light weight so it can be worn at like long formal occasions and stuff in public, but it’s still hard to move around in without worrying you’re going to like catch your shoulder in a doorway and knock your whole outfit off.
since terid was going to be crowned around the time his homeland was destroyed, he keeps his hair long. it doesn’t actually grow naturally because he doesn’t physically change, as an immortal demigod, so even though he hasn’t cut his hair in 300 years it’s not like 10 meters long, lol. (his hair grows subconsciously as a reflection of how he views himself so if he thinks his hair should be getting longer, it will slowly grow a bit longer)
so yeah, that’s the thing.
also, just. imagine that the ledge i meant to have him leaning on was still there. i forgot to draw that.
