"my hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me..." [Sep. 16th, 2004|10:11 pm]
[Current Mood |pleasedpleased]
[Current Music |Dashboard Confessional - Hands Down]

I really didn't expect to have this colored within a day of sketching it, but I've been surprising myself a lot lately. :)

Considering this is, like the second time I've colored an illustration in Photoshop ever, I'm pretty damn happy with it. I still need a lot of practice (*cough*thehair*cough*), but the good little bits of it keep me hopeful...like Duo's nose, which I want to nibble on like a bunneh. >:D Anyhoo...the lyrics are by Dashboard Confessional. And yes, that is my new "Raddy" signature in the corner. *snark* I am such a friggin' dork, you guys...XD

I now have about six art bunnies hopping madly through my head, threatening to fornicate and multiply. This includes a 2x1 sad-boys-in-snow pic, a 5x2 snuggle pic, a Draco-blowing-in-Harry's-ear pic, a Hermione-panty-giftart I owe Mike, a Gundam-boys-as-Village-People-for-Halloween series, and a Gundam-boys-do-RENT series. On top of all this, I have to write a smutfic by Nov. 15th.


Oh, and if you're wondering why I'm suddenly doing the thumbnail pic thingy...erm.......I stole it from fiendling?? O.o It seemed like a good idea. ^^;;;;;;;

breathe in for luck / breathe in so deep...Collapse )

If you want to see the same picture minus the blue tinting, click here. I actually like this version better, but I felt like the picture needed a more nighttime/dusk feel to it, hence the blue tint.

2+4 [Sep. 15th, 2004|03:12 am]

Well........this was unexpected.

While listening to Dashboard Confessional's "Hands Down," I got a 2+4 drabble bunny that bit into my ass and refused to let go...upon Jacqui's command, I tried to write for it, but the words weren't working out right...

So I got out my sketchpad instead.

I think I surprised even myself on this one...

just cuz I feel like it [Jul. 19th, 2004|02:20 pm]

I felt like posting a couple more old sketches. I was digging through my sketchbooks last night and found these from almost exactly two years ago.

Asuka! I wouldn't really call her a chibi, but she's definitely got that underage babyfat thing going on. ^^;;Collapse )

I was really damn proud with how I shaded the pleats of the skirt. I prolly wouldn't be able to do that now though, I'm way out of practice...

Oh look, another naked chick. *facepalm*Collapse )

She was originally gonna have clothes, but I didn't have the heart to cover her up cuz she looked so purty. ^_^

Ya know...if one were to flip through all my anime sketchpads, one might ponder the reasons why I draw so many naked girls. The main reason is that I always draw female characters naked first, then put clothes on over them. It makes it easier to see how the clothes should hang and where they should wrinkle, etc. My sketchbooks are not rampant with naked boys, however, because I do the opposite for them. I have so much trouble accurately representing the male body that I draw the clothes first to avoid the difficulty. -_-;; A habit I must break myself of if I wanna get any practice.

I feel like drawing some more today. I think I'm gonna go do that...*skitters off*

oh look, she's nekkid! [Jul. 19th, 2004|12:28 am]

I'm getting rather aggravated with my lack of skill when it comes to drawing the male figure. I don't know what it is, but it's so DIFFICULT for me. I guess curves are easier to draw? Meh...anyway, I did try to draw a guy tonight, but it just wasn't working out...

Instead, I wound up drawing a naked girl. :DCollapse )

wufei so sexay!! [Jul. 17th, 2004|04:22 pm]

[Current Music |Usher - Burn]

I finally set my printer/scanner up in my room, so I can scan anything I want whenever I want. Go me!

I started doodling this at freakbythebay's house over a week ago, completely on the fly...I've never successfully drawn a male torso before, so I'm pretty damn happy about this one. I've always been good at boobies and girl hips, etc...but the male body evaded me for a very long time. Probably because I don't HAVE a male body for reference. I HAVE boobs, so I know how to draw those. Anyway...I didn't attempt to draw abs because frankly, I don't know how to do those yet. XP Methinks I have an excuse to look up pictures of shirtless men for reference now, eh?? Woohoo!

This was originally gonna be either Trowa or Heero...but then I drew the head and the face and went, "Nope...this is Wufei." Which saved me the trouble of having to draw those aggravating Gundam Wing anime bangs. *phew* And yes, I still suck at drawing forearms. I'm working on it. -_-;;

For anyone who's wondering where his other foot went...it kindasorta fell off the edge of the page. I need to learn to stop doing that. ^^;;

Wufei's come hither glance...Collapse )

I'm still amused at myself for saying "I'm gonna try to draw a GUY for once!" then drawing something out of a bish-lover's wet dream. *waggles eyebrows*

more snippet! [Jul. 17th, 2004|02:07 pm]
[Current Mood |bouncybouncy]
[Current Music |Stephen Lynch - Dr. Stephen]

Here's another snippet of fic from (once again) an incomplete Raddy fanfic. ^^;; I originally posted it here. I'm not sure I'm really happy with how this turned out, but I'm hanging onto it for future editing, etc. It was written very out-of-context with the rest of the fic...god only knows which chapter this is gonna be in. Meh, whatever. Here's my original description:

That's right folks, the apocalypse is coming, Lauren actually WROTE something. ^_^;;

I had hoped I could post the first chapter of this, but it's being very fiesty with me, and this future chapter was being much nicer.

This is going to be a GW adoption fic...and it's not going to be a smooth ride, at least not at first. Duo takes in Gabey because they have similar backgrounds...homelessness, stealing, being rejected by foster families, and something else that I won't reveal yet, but you'll find out when I post chapter one. Gabey is 8-9 years old, with thick black hair (think Harry Potter, hehe), freckles, and a penchant for cussing and beating up other kids. A streetwise problem child, torn between immaturity and wisdom beyond his years.
It should be noted that so far in their relationship, Duo has been the big alpha male and Gabey has been the omega...Duo teases Gabey on a regular basis, and although Gabey shoots back with cussing and insulting names, Duo keeps control of the situation by simply laughing it all off, which drives Gabey up the wall. And yes, the word "Jesusfuck" is used in this scene because Gabey often makes fun of Duo's religious affiliations.
This is also going to be a 2x5 fic, but this scene has nothing to do with that whatsoever...
Anyway...in this scene, Duo and Gabey are filling out forms to create a legal record of Gabey's existence (since he was born homeless, he obviously doesn't have a birth certificate or anything), so that the adoption process can be completed. Mind you, Duo and Gabey are still not used to each other, but they're getting there...

Duo & GabeyCollapse )

random sharing of snippet ^^;; [Jul. 17th, 2004|02:04 pm]
[Current Mood |bouncybouncy]
[Current Music |Stephen Lynch - She Gotta Smile]

Decided to put up a snippet of fic I wrote quite some time ago (I originally posted it here) but never got around to finishing because I was working on another fic at the time. I don't know if I ever will finish this...mainly because I've recently written a fic VERY similar to it with the character roles reversed. Maybe I will, maybe I won't. I'm saving this snippet, though, because I actually really like the way it turned out.

Here's the original description I gave for it:

Okay, background info...this is going to be an AU 2x5, probably a lemon (^^;;)...Wufei is a rather disgruntled assasin for the Chinese mafia (think Red Dragon syndicate of Cowboy Bebop). By hook or by crook (in other words, I haven't decided yet) something goes terribly wrong with a small mission at a questionable bar, and he ends up taking a hostage, and that hostage is...you guessed it! Duo Maxwell! And here's the juicy part...Duo is *dun dun DUUUN* a male stripper at the gay bar!! *cackles madly* So this is going to turn into one of those "I'm your hostage, but I really really like you *nudge nudge wink wink*" type of fics.

So anyway, Wufei has dragged Duo to one of his little hideout places, and is now getting flustered because Duo's really hot. *giggles* I love angry!Wufei when he's all flustered. Damn, I think I had too much fun writing this...*wiggles eyebrows*

Oh...and don't expect me to finish this particular fic anytime soon. I have bigger fics...er, fish to fry. ^^;;

Wufei clutched his book tightly and tried to ignore the fact that Duo was changing in front of the dresser not seven feet away from where he lay propped up against his reading pillow. He failed.Collapse )
