Sometimes, when you’re suffering from depression and anxiety, it feels like you’re drowning and the whole world is watching and laughing. But the majority of the world doesn’t know what you’re going through and, of those that do, the ones that matter aren’t laughing.
I’ve added this to my RedBubble here! :: https://www.redbubble.com/shop/ap/122118117

I’ve been experimenting with Adobe Illustrator to do some graphic design. This is an old idea that I’ve had percolating in my brain stuffs, related to my congenital brain cyst giving me headaches in response to changes in the weather. It’s weather map symbols overlayed over a brain.
I’m struggling to transcribe this idea. I don’t have a “visual imagination”, per say; all I’ve got up in here is the vibes that I should feel when looking at the art piece.
I’ve been recently animating my OC, Murakami Momoko, for my game that I’m working on. I’m planning to procedurally generate her fox tails, so it’s just her here. Her feet are definitely bigger in the running animation, which has an easy solution called, “Make the idle animation’s feet larger”.
Murakami Momoko is my original character: a kitsune raised by humans and trained as a samurai. I’m ever-so-slowly working on developing video game with her, so I figured that I should put together a proper character sheet to reference.
I recorded and timed myself drawing this, because I was thinking of doing commissions in spite of my severe anxiety. It took about 2.5 hours, though I think I’ll later revise the torso again.
While the art itself went smoothly, this video, on the other hand, was just the worst to make. OBS seemed to purport itself fine, but Corel VideoStudio 2021 flipped. out. trying to deal with the video files. The preview was out-of-sync and useless, but worse? The initial sped-up video file occasionally flickered to a different frame every couple of frames. It would have been an epileptic nightmare.
I decided to clean up an old sketch of two of my favorite Marvel characters, Viv Vision and Riri Williams (Ironheart). Though Vivheart has a hold on my brainstuffs, I just hope Viv gets a win next week for “Love Unlimited”, however that turns out.
I’ve pretty much finished with this, methinks. All that’d be left would be shading, but shading is hard and I am tired and I have been looking at this for a long time.
I’ve added this piece to my Redbubble – https://www.redbubble.com/shop/ap/103187263, if you’d like her to be on your stuff and things. Or you can take a look at my Ko-fi – https://ko-fi.com/sadayoshientertainment, if you wish.
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.
