Ok, now that that's over with and I can stop being juvenile, let's move on. Hope I didn't scare everyone away or something.
I only got stuff you've perhaps already seen today, but whatever.
First up, the same hand that's ind my sig:
I like drawing hands, and it would appear I'm even kinda good at it. I really like how this one came out, at least. I drew my own hand with a blue pencil, and then redrew it with a normal pencil, this time including all the robot stuff. It's Ivenks hand, and I think this about wraps up it's design. I didn't want to give it nails at first, but seeing as nails are kinda practical, and Ivenks is a practical man, I gave him some pretty long, freakish ones. They can be retracted, though. Also of note, is that I've designed it to pretty much emulate a human hand in all other aspect. The fingers have roughly the same shape as human fingers and can bend the same ways. The reasoning is that while there may be advantages in being able to turn your hand 180 degrees and what not, a cyborg enhancement would be easier to control if it worked within the same restrictions as your former limb. I wonder if I'm the only one that considers such somewhat unimportant details. I generally design through logic rather than aesthetics.
Second, the finished C.Y. entry.
Yeah, I know the dialog isn't very funny, but I needed an excuse for them to pose a bit, instead of just standing around. They're all OCs, and at the left is Gerock, in a costume I once wore myself to a halloween party. Including the stick lying across the neck, holding my sleeves and arms up, like a scarecrow. I didn't have the vertical stick though, which is actually what keeps Gerock so high above the ground. No, he isn't just tall, though he certainly is.
In the middle, Ivenks cosplaying as Edward Elric, from Full Metal Alchemist. I must admit I totally stole the concept of a metal sword arm from there. But Ivenks got two! Double the swords, double the awesome!
Right is Cecia, as a mummy, duh. Bashing myself is fun.
I have very much of a love/hate relationship. I like the concept, love the costumes, like the coloring, frowns at the poses, hates the pencils, HATES the inking. Looking at the hand sketch, and at VGcats new (temporary) look, a comic that usually screams "so clean it must have been made in flash!", I'm more tempted than ever to completely drop inking and just use pencil. This one also really got me thinking about my coloring. I initially set a limit to it, saying that I wouldn't try to go beyond cell shading, because I didn't real mean to get any good at coloring, even though I kinda did. Now, it's pretty much an integral part of my work, and I think blending would fit better together with sketchy pencils...
