OH GOD THE PRESSURE

Electric Dawn by ParallaxMLP
Electric Dawn

Hello! I haven't posted anything in a while, so have another thing. Believe it or not, I have been known to draw stuff with less than four legs. I don't have a place to post them though. Maybe I'll put something up here every now and then, if I'm going quiet like recently!

This is Titch. She's a character from a story I'm writing involving robots trying to coexist in a semi-futuristic human society. She's a persocom. (Who here has heard of 'Chobits'? :D make of it what you will - opinions do vary - mine is that the premise of human-analogue machines is undeniably interesting. There was room for more story in my humble opinion, at least in the anime.. It seemed to concentrate on Chii being adorable, but there was all this other awesome stuff that could have been explored.)

Since some of the other stuff I like to do includes the occasional spot of writing, and seeing as I had some ideas I couldn't put down, I'm putting them on digital paper. You can read the results here and feedback is much appreciated, if you have the time (it doesn't really have much to do with Chobits beyond borrowing from it for background details - if you've never read/watched Chobits you're fine, it stands alone - but I think it still qualifies for that site, seeing as it does draw upon the terminology and ideas). Fair warning: it will contain violence and some adult-themes, although I think it's not quiiiite enough for the M-rating, at least right now. Also, there might be a character name you recognise if you've been watching this account for a while. :D I insist there is no correlation, the names are just the same.

It's a nice outlet to write when making comics, as there really isn't a lot of room for dialogue there, and they take so bloody long to do as well. :| when I'm feeling productive but staring stupidly at blank canvas in Illustrator, I can do this instead. I've said before, it's tempting to do one for Websurfers, except it would interfere with the comic... At the very least, might spoil it, in a fashion? What do you reckon? And where the hell would I publish a Websurfers story, if I did? DA isn't very good for publishing text, I fear. The next comic is still a ways away.

MLW - Interwebs
Here, have a thing! One of those "hey I should make a drawing of that" ideas which I then sit on, half-finished for years. Folders full of this stuff. Anyway this one's finished now, more or less. It's technically pointless seeing as how these characters would spend their time in the net instead of on it but... meh. :D

What are they looking at, do you think? Maybe this? 

My Little Websurfers - Human by ParallaxMLP

Or something much, much worse? :D Who knows? (I started this image waaay before the one in the above link was even an idea, so they're not related... kinda looks like they could be though, haha).

Websurfers: the next comic is still a ways from completion. Bah. I feel like I'm falling behind with it, must push to do more. Once I get started in an evening I'm generally set to keep drawing for a few hours, it's just there's a million distractions coming home each evening. I also stop and work on other things (like the above) when I'm stuck on small details about how I'm drawing the comics, or tweaks to the story, which happens often. I know a lot of you are happy to wait as long as it takes (thank you) but it's also for my own benefit I finish the comics.... love that feeling when it's all ready to go and I'm happy with the artwork, it's exciting. :D

Ah, well. Onwards!

whoops, i meant "I forgot" the username, "I see" the username doesn't make a lick of sense :/

but still, no problem, your art is amazing!

 I took up writing when i was young instead of art, i'm starting regret that choice.

seriously, who reads books anymore?

I do, on occasion! Actually I love writing as well! I'm probably not particularly good at it haha, but you can paint a picture way faster and in some ways with more detail than is possible with drawn artwork. :D

Wouldn't worry about starting "late" if you wanted to. It's not like I started with artwork when I was really young, I messed around with it occasionally, but that was all. Only the last few years I became more interested! The stuff I do is very much learned through experimentation, I see no reason why others couldn't do the same if they were so inclined :)  I'm also still fairly diabolical with a pencil imho, as all my stuff starts as a rough hand-drawn digital sketch, although have been improving with time I think.

Vector art is great because even if you're not satisfied with what you're creating, it's very easy to change and improve it. ALL my stuff starts out crappy at first, I do a first pass and then think "wtf is this?" and by that time enough of the image has progressed that I realise what needs to change. Then it sort of goes through this progressive revision process with the colours and shapes and positioning, etc until it looks better. That sort of stuff is easy to do when the art assets are treated as physical, modifiable objects (vector art). The best part is you don't need any specialist tools to get started - it can be done with a mouse or trackpad, and I still use those often.
