To the Moon- Fan Art

Now that the convention-going season has wrapped up for me, I'm going to break step with tradition a little bit here, and post the art-prints  that were for sale at the shows.

This fun little number is called To the Moon, featuring a humanized ver. of everyone's favorite Pony Princess of the Night- Luna.

Ever since the launch of the Roan RPG, my good friend Clear Skies has been kind enough to provide table space for little ol' me, with one minor request- Create a bomber-girl ver. of a My Little Pony character to help promote the game.

For this year's Bronycon I decided that I'd go with Luna, mostly because the slogan of "To the Moon" felt like a very bomber-girl thing to say, and well Moon... Luna...?

Meh, you get it...

The pose was actually based on an image of the pro-wrestler Naomi (of WWE fame) and I did little to alter it, as I wanted to retain as much of her energy in the photo as possible.

The most fun/interesting bit of trivia I have about this image though is that the star-field in her hair is actually a layer mask of The Horse Head Nebula, because Ponies... Horse Head...?

Meh, you get it...

Overall I'm pleased with how the piece came out, and I hope you all dig the results as well!

Feeling the Crunch

Now that the convention-going season has wrapped up for me, I'm going to break step with tradition a little bit here, and post the art-prints that were for sale at the shows.

This piece is titled Feeling the Crunch, in part because three of my characters are all mushed together into one (way too tiny for them) frame, but mostly because I finished this image a mere day before I had to leave for Anthrocon 2018.

Leading into the event, I was feeling somewhat void on inspiration, and as the date of the convention drew closer and I closer, I kept telling myself I had to get some kind of new art-print made to sell at the table.

While I probably stressed far more about the matter than I should have (as there was no real obligation on me to have any new prints available) it was something I told myself I'd do for my very first Anthrocon, and dammit, I was going to do it!

Thus, the idea hit me at the last possible minute to have my original adult-comic trio of Bast Katt, Fida Cantor, and Mary-Gold Tauros all crammed into one place that clearly wasn't big enough for any one of them, let alone three. Having them slightly pop-out of frame is a touch meta for sure, but I'd like to think it adds a bit more fun to the overall vibe.

In the end, I'd say I'm rather satisfied with the final result, and I can only hope you all dig it as well.

Donation Button Art

Mary-Gold Tauros: "Why don't you consider Donating to help N8Dogg5k grow?"
Much like the title suggests, this here is the line-art for the donation button I'm currently working on for my Picarto streaming site.

I kinda liked the idea of putting my character Mary-Gold doing a "Consider the Following" type pose, while in a set of overalls, and hopefully you all find it fun too.

There isn't much else to say here except for you all to keep an eye out for when the finished piece emerges.

The V Slashers- Commission

Magnum Fox & Gunnery Sgt. Jade
This foxy duo was from an over-the-top pro-wrestling tabletop RPG my brother GM'ed for us back in 2017, to which my good friend Clear Skies commissioned this piece when the first season of games finished.

Clear made no bones about it that he was highly inspired by the likes of Heidern (of King of Fighters fame) when it came to creating his character, except he imagined him as a cruiser-weight fox-man named Magnum Fox.

Escorted by the equally lovely and deadly Gunnery Sgt. Jade, Magnum Fox was able to lay claim to the title, after scoring ten grueling victories over several colorful and crazy wrestlers.

There's a lot more wackiness to it, but I won't waste your time with all that.

Overall, I'm fairly pleased with the final results, and I intend to color this digitally, I do want to render the rest of the cast from the game in the near future as well.

Hope you all dig it!

Thanos Holding Infinity- Fan Art

Why have Eternity, when you can hold Infinity?

I know this is coming quite a bit late to the whole Infinity War party, but here's my take on Thanos sporting the iconic universe-altering gauntlet.

Avengers: Infinity War was such a phenomenal blast, I felt a major compulsion to do some sort of artwork commemorating an experience that was essentially 10 years in the making.

When it came to my overall approach to this piece, I wanted to get back in touch with my American Superhero Comic Book roots, so tried to be somewhat evocative of my more favorite/prominent comic artists of that genre.

Joe Madeureira and Arthur Adams were (obviously) the most influential, and I can only hope that I've done both of those amazing fellows some degree of justice here.

Overall I had a great time working on this one, even though I will admit that the hatching and spotted blacks took more time than I would've liked them to.

Much like my other B & W works, I do intend to color this one in the future, but for now I'm simply happy to have the line-work completed, and I hope you all like it too.

Sorry for the wait, and thanks for your patience.

Ms. Bull (Colored Ver.) for the Shonuff44 Art Book

Here's the colored version of the Ms. Bull piece I did for :iconshonuff44: upcoming art-book, posted with his permission.

It was a straight-up blast working on this image from start to finish, but I do want to clarify that I do not take any credit for the Pure Beef logo she's sporting on her backside, as it's a stock image I took from a quick google search.

The logo belongs to its respective creator, and I simply felt like it matched the spirit of the image for a cute little joke if nothing else.

All the same, I had a ton of fun doing the digital colors, and I'd like to think I'm getting much faster with them in the recent weeks.

I hope you all dig the final results.

This picture was colored in the PC art program Krita.

Destroyed by Baiken- Fan Art

Baiken has always been one of my favorite characters from the Guilty Gear franchise, and I felt it was high-time to finally do some artwork of the one-armed, one-eyed, samurai bad ass.

Granted, this is only a screen-cap redraw of Baiken's Xrd Rev2 Destroyed move (Garyo Tensei) win-screen, but it's just such a downright cool shot I couldn't help but want to try my hand at rendering it.

Overall I'm fairly pleased with how the lines came out, and you can bet I fully intend to do a colored version (along with a background) of this in the very near future.

Hope you folks enjoy it.

Materials used was Micron Pens for the inks on 9 x 12in. Bristol Board.
