Happy October, everyone.
On my last day in Dublin, I found myself hunkering down in Christ Church Cathedral. The downstairs/basement area is a delightfully atmospheric place. After sitting down to draw one of the passages I walked up to see one of the displays, which turned out to be a cat that had chased a rat into an organ pipe. Both had become mummified. The structure and the form were absolutely beautiful and so I stayed to sketch for a while.
Sketches from Ireland, part one. I didn’t do nearly as much drawing as I expected since I spent most of my time hiking, but I found some time in between to sketch things like mountain tops and ruins and that kind of thing, as well as some disapproving-looking people on the train.
(The second to last picture is not as exciting as a mountaintop per se, but it is the table in Greystones where I ate the best damn fish chowder I’ve ever had.)
Intermittent sketchbook+process work— from Ireland, and the past couple of days.
Inks and some close-ups from Stasis.
From what I understand, the way to make a sexualized MOBA character is:
1) Draw a sexy naked person.
2) Add some pseudo-biblical/mythological barely-there paraphernalia/accessories/ a dramatic headpiece,
3) LONG BILLOWING SCARF-CLOTHING AND SWIRLING WINDS OF DESIRE plus “armor.”
Have been looking at a lot of MOBA concept art+3D models lately. I’m not surprised by the lack of non-sexy-sameface female characters— I’m just incredibly disappointed [insert your best Stern Matronly Face here, thank you].
I don’t need there to be No Sexualized Women Ever. But boy would I love some old giant battle-scarred women that don’t look like they pose for playboy! And some tiny-waisted shiny dudes that look like they figure skate and model for a living! If we can have Cat Girls, we can have Pool Boys.
If they would only even the playing field on character choices I would play these games and give them my money with gladness.
Cold Sunday Eve.
Uploading the darker version of this (i.e., the original.) (It’s up on inprnt too.)
Hi everyone! I’m making my piece from “Banquet” available as a print.
As you may notice, this is a slightly edited version of the original— i wanted to add a more outwardly monstrous element to Lecter’s figure.
