Sewing: Plush Pig (Blue)
I drew Marvel’s Viv Vision and Riri Williams again, as is my wont. I hope that they’re not kicking off this new Champions event by killing Viv again, because Viv suffering got real old a long time ago.
I drew one of the new Pokémon, Clobbopus, with pencil and pen. It could be better, but I’m only going to revise a sketch in traditional media so many times before moving on with my life.
Here’s a sketch page I did. It’s got Morritriole, my shark-weasel-alien character; Viv Vision and Riri Williams from Marvel Comics; and I don’t know what that thing in the upper-left is.
I’ll need to clean these up, but I’ve been spending a lot of my time directing a panda to punch raccoons forever. And I’m switching to different medication, so caring is hard.
It’s the Year of the Pig! And also brown and earth, I’ve been told. So I sewed a pig using a low-res pattern from a Russian website, so I had to guess as to what it was I was actually doing.
I did do the dappled pattern myself, though. Very nice, even if it janked up a couple of the legs. This was also my first attempt at embroidery, so the eyes are a little clumsy.
I started this big ol’ piece a while back and then stopped working on it until recently because I have a nightmare brain. And, speaking of nightmares, I’m just now realizing that this thing is a compositional nightmare because I didn’t plan it in the slightest. I’m just kind of tossing characters at it and seeing what sticks.
I intend to get all the Incarnations in here, so I might have to get creative. Or bigger. It’s good practice with proportions and poses, though.
It is complete, or as complete as I care to make it: A gumball machine filled with gumballs that are also cats.
I also did a number of alternate color palettes based off of different pride flags.
I’ve also added all the variants to my Redbubble:
I’ve been fiddling about with a small Galaga-style video game, but I’m not sure if it’s, like, fun? So that’s bumming me out. Anyways, here’s some conceptual sketches of a gumball machine that dispenses gumballs that are also cats.
So, I don’t really read comics all that much… but I’m kinda super over where Marvel’s Champions is right now. At least just let them be friends again, like when Viv and Riri were designing the Mk.3 Ironheart armor together.
Here’s some more Dragalia Lost art I started a while back and got distracted from. I probably should have put some indication of ground beneath them, but it’s too late now and I don’t want to.
Francesca and Odetta have fairly similar stories: wanderers with nowhere to return to who find a home at the Halidom.
