Because You're a Girl (Spoilers!)

Utena is one bitch-ass cool awesome show and the ending is such a glorious middle finger to convention and more people should watch it. After finishing the mermaid last night, I cleaned up the original sketch, started last night and finished a few minutes ago. Yup yup.

The show is about a girl who wants to be a prince and why it's not a very good idea, but it's still a super feminist show. Also lots of commentary on adolescence and sexuality and psychology. Basically a shoujo 'Evangelion'. It seems super tame until you hit episode 14. Then your brain blows up. It took me at least five years to figure out the ending.

Oh, also stupidly huge spoilers.

Here's my trace of a xerox of the original scribble that started it all.

Here's my clean-up of the trace.

Here's my final.

Mermaid


New sexy girlie! It's a mermaid, you know.

Mermaid - In Progress

Working on another sexy girlie. Started with an old figure drawing this evening and did some rough color a few hours ago. Should have it done tomorrow. (It has also occurred to me I have few of the supplies I need for any Halloween costume I had in mind and parties star this Thursday. Oops. Well, at least I'm having fun.) :)



Lots to fix before the final, but I like where it's going.

Dr Sketchy's NYC - Dia de los Muertos!!

I went to Dr. Sketchy's tonight for the first time in awhile and got a surprising amount of decent drawings in after a few months without live drawing. Cheers to Rogizoid and Draven Star for their excellent modeling! :)

Post-NYCC

New York Comic Con is over! I've escaped without Con Flu, I didn't see any panels, I missed my friend's band's show in Hoboken, I sold a load of sketches, I met a lot of cool cats, and I will do anything or anyone to have the Javits Center moved to a normal part of town. What an ungodly walk. If you're not crushed between tractor trailers when you're crossing the street by the Lincoln Tunnel, you run the risk of dying of exhaustion around 9th Avenue. This must have been what the Orgeon Trail was like.

FUN FACTS! :D Melody and I were interviewed for a webseries called Rew & Who. Yes, I talk that fast and I'm that pale. :)



Welcome to the blog. There will be more art as soon as I catch up on some school things. :)
