Here’s the coloured versions. At least for now. I might take another jab at the colours later, but as this needs to be ready tomorrow morning, I’m going to go with this pseudo-wannabe-watercolour mock up style. :’D
Working on a comic assignment while trying out a new style. My arm is throbbing after pushing both of these pages out during this evening alone. (Sketching and everything. Geez.)
NOW TO COLOUR. WHOOP DE FUCKING HOO. Say a prayer to my drawing arm, okay?
Thank you for all the birthday wishes!
Yuicy gave me a massive brachiosaurus figurine as a present, so here’s Kaarne hugging it!
YESSSS! This is my goal. :D I will begin by having a good night’s sleep. *throws art history essay off of desk*
THANK YOU! <3
You might’ve seen WIP images of this before. Yes, I literally only got around to finishing it now. I don’t know if I’m happy with the colours or not, but at least I tried something slightly new? Pffff. This is not really a canon situation, as Ghost doesn’t belong to the story where my robot dragon species are. It’s more of a… personal piece I guess. Personal symbolism.
At some point I became afraid of drawing, I guess. Afraid of drawing badly, afraid of being judged. Because of it most of the time now I have this crushing feeling in my chest when I try to draw.
I don’t want to be afraid anymore. People are going to judge anyway, so why not go all out and just do what makes me happy.

Not in any specific order. There are a bunch of others but I’d say, that at least for now, these are my “go to” inspirators. These people are amazing, k?
It seems like I cannot design a character without it having some kind of duality/split version theme eventually. Lately I’ve started calling the “shrouded” or masked version of Stranger as “Misery” even though it’s the same character. Though, I guess Stranger was never a proper name… it was just a word he made a home in.
Stranger is a manifestation of compassion, which for some reason felt most like a monster design to me. It’s my personal demon, I guess, in a way. The key words I always associated with him were compassion, kindness, misery and silence. To me at least all of these things are somehow related to empathy.
It wants to say the right things, but it can’t
It wants to be kind, but doesn’t know how
It’s the weight that looms over
