Looong time no blog, aye, I know, it's not like I've been busy as hell after all ! ^^" Anyways, because we all need our dose of testosterone, here's the last batch of illustrations I drew that can fit this blog, with sketches, WIP and all !
First, a little present for Dinosaurprince because by the beginning of September he learnt some bad bad news (me too, actually) and I though a little comfort would be needed. So here's Dino hugging Rikuo from Darkstalkers.
I picked Rikuo because among all of Dino's original characters I couldn't choose only one and thought it had been a long time since he commissioned some Rikuo illustration. Plus it was cute to imagine a totally fantastic character who doesn't look like a human hugging a real person.
I had to draw this piece with the only reference of a portrait picture Dino sent me once... as I'm not talented for portraits at all it was a double challenge. Fortunately, Dino recognized himself and thought it was super cute. ^^ He seemed really happy. Mission accomplished !
I thought due to his personal issues Dino wouldn't commission me for a long time, which wasn't a problem for me but sad but for him. But it looks like the boy can't live without art and fantasy ! ^^ So he asked me to have a take on his deliciously old school addiction : John Carter of Mars.
My only knowledge of John was through Frank Frazetta's paintings. You said "Frank Frazetta" ? I'm in ! -Will the arm move ?-
However, we got more inspired by the original comics than the paintings for this piece and I just looove the old smell of these comics, - yeah it does smell old even on a computer screen ! ^^ I tried to keep this special atmosphere, got all the details of the illustration from the comics. -Yeah the arm moved !-
The muscles are defined with big brush touches, as in the original comics when black was an entire part of the colors.
Aaand my very first pink sky ever ! I'm really proud of this color work, because I wanted it to look old school, wanted to go back to that time when printing colors was not easy, when comics were cheap and great at the same time ! Oh and I added some screentones too.
Well, yet another Mario / Luigi porn illustration because my previous one was a kinda great success but it was definitely getting old. I needed a new version !
Pink balls for the win ! ^^
Okay and let's end with a watercolor illustration, steampunk inspired. Because lots of my friends are doing steampunk and I felt the urge to draw some myself. But with cocks. Can I draw without cocks ? Hm... I'm not so sure.
