the art block is too rough right now and i’m not getting anything accomplished. i need to loosen up my brain so does anyone have any suggestions?
that feeling of finally making a character so tragic that it makes you physically cry that they would have to survive what you put them through.
the feeling of success.
heireau answered: are your babies planning to have babies
a bunch of my babies can not physically have babies in their world :c or at least not with their chosen partners. kinda one of the downsides of being a mutant or monster is that you might find out too late that the biology doesn’t add up. that’s okay though because that’s what adoption is for :D
dollarschool answered: i’m actually new to your world; can you give me the elevator speech? (owo )
certainly! my world is basically one where a natural disaster akin to Chernobyl happened except with magic instead of nuclear horribleness. the result is mutants and monsters everywhere but instead of grinding to a halt and getting all mad max, society just altered itself to accommodate the fact that dragons were real and some kids were now actually raised by wolves in stable middleclass homes. when you think about it the world is weird and wonderful enough already so why not. most of my stories and characters focus on how these new gods and monsters try to live their lives. special focus is given to the different type of familial and romantic relationships that occur when about half of the monster population can’t really breed successfully (typically where more than a few baby stealing myths come from) and are either ignored or fetishized by ‘non corrupted’ humans.
beckpoppins answered: could you describle one of your characters getting dressed
Shugah tends to roll out of the shower and wrap his hair up so it doesn’t drip everywhere first. his clothes are all altered so he doesn’t have to pull them over his head so he just shimmies his shirt up over his hips (the shirt has a few clasps on the back so this isn’t THE MOST awkward thing) and does it up so you can’t see the clasps. for his pants, they’re actually just thrift store jeans turned into really long legwarmers. he has them rigged up on a garter belt type thing (he doesn’t like anything touching his tail when he walks so no underwear) so he just slips that on and wears an apron or super long shirt to hide the whole mess.
he has a pretty complicated wardrobe for someone who wears what looks like jeans and a t-shirt every day.
othartryggvassen answered: YES I WANNA KNOW WHAT SHUGAH LIKES MOST ABOUT GOLDIE
Shugah likes that Goldie likes him. he doesn’t really have a lot of close friends so the fact that someone thinks he’s the coolest makes him really protective of Goldie in a kind of selfish way. it makes him not so kind to Goldie’s other friends.
what an insecure butt.
copperbeard answered: what is… the very worst thing… about them?
Shugah seems emotionally lazy. once he makes a bond with you he tends to stop trying unless he sees you with his actual eyes becoming distressed, in which case he will panic and offer you anything you want to make it stop. in fact he’s just bad at social stuff in general. this might be more of a brain problem than his mom and grandpa would like to admit. this causes super bad problems in college.
Goldie stays loyal to people even when they are horrible and tends to go along with other people’s bad ideas. this causes a lot of tears and self-doubt.
i’ll write up a lot more of these later! this was an interesting question c:
mackiemae answered: Do any of your characters purr? What is Shugah’s favourite smell? (P.S. I love your art. :3)
Shugah’s jackalope Apple purrs. Shugah hisses when angry and once he hits puberty he makes a weird growly sound when he’s attracted to someone. this usually weirds the person out so bad if they’re human and he can’t really control it so it’s the worst.
Shugah likes the smell of fresh cut grass
nabashio answered: How did you come up with the designs for your unicorn princesses? I would love to make someof my own!
most of it is enhancing things people think are cute in a weird way. people like sparkle desu eyes? put like 8 more on. pretty colors? rainbow blood! it’s fun and easy :D
while i’m just sitting around, anybody wanna do a worldbuilding wednesday round of questions?
anything y’all wanna know about my weird babies?
Shugah (and Apple) doodles that i will never ever finish.
it’s really hard to draw a character who spends 75% of his time slobbin’ around doing anything but being the laziest. also in case anyone asks, yeah, he’s wearing a skirt thing. dude can’t wear boxers on account of tail so instead his mom just buys cheap little skirts and alters them so he can lay around the house without flashing anybody.
for someone who counts ‘wearing your hair down’ as clothes this was an amazing invention for anyone who ever wanted to walk in the living room on a hot day.
well my day was the most butts and i was sitting here all nauseous and gross feeling from no sleep or food and being out in the snow/slush BUT THEN WEJA POSTED THIS PICTURE
OF MY BABIES
look at these precious idiots OH MY GOD.
i know you were just taking requests but if you want any arts from me just name it, it is all i can do to thank enough ;3;
older!Merril doodles for Morbi.
you said you didn’t need thank you gift art for your helpful hint last night but you’re not the boss of me.
so here’s Merril modeling some of the swimwear from the project that got saved. i picked older Merril because she has bigger hair which is always better. she was supposed to be chibi sized but i think i accidentally got to close to her actual proportions.
morbi said: SHHHH, I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL…. Have you tried going into the file properties and checking the “previous versions” tab for an earlier copy? Or do you have that option?
attention everyone Morbi is the best ever.
the day is saved and i don’t have to commit seppuku now. you better brace yourself for some gift art mister.
i just saved over some character designs that took me weeks to do for this thing i’ve been working on for three months.
with a blank sai file.
my hands are so dumb, i just…
