Commission - Terra, Prisoner of Love

This is a commissioned piece I recently finished featuring Terra of the Teen Titans. The idea behind this picture is that Terra is "trapped" in these earth stocks but, since her power is to control earth, the implication is that she's only as trapped as she wants to be. Hence, the seductive look she's giving you, teasing you.

I'm not sure why, but somehow this picture was a lot easier to make than most of the pics I do. I'm not sure if it's because there was only one character, or what, but when I got the description I was sure it would take longer than it did. However, I pumped it out in less than half the time I usually allot for for standalone pictures. Not that I'm complaining, mind you, as I'm still playing catch-up on some of my commissions. Hopefully we'll be seeing a few of those pop up around here soon.

WWOTM - Diana, the Acrobat

The WWOEC Woman of the Month for February 2015 is Diana from the Dungeons & Dragons animated series. Now, despite playing a lot of the game it's based on, I'd never seen this show before. However, once I started doing some research, I had too many ideas to choose from. So I decided to pair her up with everyone from the main cast, and here we are. I might return to this character later, since I also wanted to do something with her staff weapon, but hey, we'll see.

I decided to do two versions of the colors, one based on the flat colors of the show and another closer to my usual coloring style.

The other submissions for this month can be viewed here.

Toph

I drew this picture in June of last year, inked it at some point in September, and then left it sitting half-finished in my "WIP" folder until just now. The picture is really simple, so all it took was about a half-hour of coloring to wrap it up. I could have finished it at any time, but I kept putting it off because of other, more important (and complex) projects and commissions. However, because things have been slow around here, I finally took the time to finish it.

I can't even remember what made me want to draw it, other than that I've always liked Toph. Whatever reason I had, I think the final piece isn't too bad. It doesn't even look that out of place next to my other, more recent pictures.

Commission - Shinobu and Yukako

Here's another commission I recently wrapped up, featuring Shinobu Kawajiri and Yukako Yamagishi from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part IV: Diamond is Unbreakable. This comes to us from the same patron that brought us the previous JoJo pictures and was drawn to specification via a reference image.

Big Hero 6 Commission, Part One

This is the first in a three-part series of commissioned Big Hero 6 pictures. This one features Aunt Cass disciplining her nephews for the trouble they caused her at the start of the film. I enjoyed making this pic, and I hope you guys like it to. It's hard to say when the next one will be done, but please look forward to it!

Ghost Trick Pack

So, since things have been moving kind of slow for me here lately (though I expect and hope they'll pick up soon as I wrap up a few projects), I thought I'd post these old pictures that never made it on the blog. A few years ago, Lynne from Ghost Trick was the WWOEC Woman of the Month and, as I'm wont to do, I drew her. However, while I was drawing her, I came across a few other characters I really liked and decided to draw them, too. Now, I'm not terribly proud of these pictures anymore, but they were drawn a long time ago and I was still developing as an artist. Hell, I'm still developing now, but I think I've come a long way since 2011.
