I drew a whole landscape with ink and colored pencil, imitating traditional Japanese art. This fisherman’s hut on a beach is the initial scene of my game that I’m totally going to finish one day definitely.
A wood hut with a thatched roof sits on the edge of a beach; trees begin appearing farther to the right up the hill past the hut. A wood pier extends out from the beach into the choppy ocean. In the background, silhouettes of other islands can be seen with the vague shape of a mountain further beyond it.
Here’s an idea that’s been percolating in my brain ever since regional variants were introduced: a Grass-type variant of the Mareep line, inspired by the Common Mullein plant that I frequently see around Colorado. This Mega Ampharos, to contrast the Dragon/Electric-type standard, is a Fairy/Grass-type.
I’m not particularly enthused by the Mareep and Flaaffy concepts, but the main genesis of this idea was replacing Ampharos’ tail with the Mullein; I threw its pre-evolutions together more as a service to that idea than anything else.
And you can watch the timelapse of me drawing this here:
While I was looking about for new spells for the warlock I’m playing in a Dungeons and Dragons campaign with friends, I came across what seemed to be a kitsune-themed spell and was diverted onto the tangent of searching for the kitsune patron. There wasn’t one, which is its own separate rabbit hole of an idea, but I did discover the game rules for playing as a gun. Whereby this character was thought up.
Here are some work in progress character design sketches I did of this as-of-yet unnamed character. She starts out as a saloon/tavern-girl who shifts to bounty hunting after an immortal outlaw destroys the saloon she worked at and slaughtered her coworkers. But she fails to kill the outlaw at the end and, as she’s dying, pacts with the Banished Gunsmith to continue her crusade, albeit as a sentient gun.
I’m really loving where this character ended up, predicated solely on the character feature, “is a gun” as she was.
I did a chibi panel redraw of Marvel’s Champions (2020) featuring Viv Vision and Riri Williams (Ironheart) presenting their messaging app, #ChampionsCharge. They’re my favorite Marvels.
Once upon a time, I was watching a video of a moose and her calves walking down a road and realized: Hey! That freaks me out a little bit! Too big. Too spindly. Too much leg. Whereupon this strange idea was produced and slowly, ponderously worked on.
Inspired by the bus scene from My Neighbor Totoro, here’s an anthropomorphized moose waiting at a bus stop. For this character design, I wanted to emulate the unnerving nature of a moose with this horrifying woodcutter. Instead of actually giving him antlers, I gave him a moose-themed umbrella as a further reference to Totoro.

And there’s a Ko-Fi that I have, if you so wish: https://ko-fi.com/sadayoshientertainment
It’s Xinyan! She’s probably my favorite character from Genshin Impact. It’d be nice if she had more content, though.

LGBT is technically an initialism, but I parse it as an acronym instead. So, “enjoy” the inevitable outcome of pronouncing LGBT as a word: cartoon bats with disconcertingly human legs.
I had originally planned to have this done in June, for Pride Month, but then I didn’t. So all y’all are getting it at the end of Disability Awareness Month.
I’ve also added it to my Redbubble, so if you want… this on your stuff, you can get it here: [Redbubble Link]
I drew my original character, Murakami Momoko the kitsune samurai, recently. It’s also the first time I’ve drawn that spear both all together and from an angle, so that’s neat.
I do drawings in traditional media for holidays and birthdays, because my grandparents struggle with connecting things that I do digitally with me. Then again, they always seem surprised of the traditional stuff, too, so it’d probably just be easier to switch fully so that my shaky hands are less of a constant detriment.
