…but this is definitely the last time I engage in any “friendly bets” …
yep. it’s up. have at it XD
half Halloween-spirit post, half “the sure-thing zoid Esie “bet” on tripped in the home stretch and therefore she has the worst luck ever”
but yeah…wide open on her blog for in-character response.
(and yes, it’s transparent~ XD)
I told you I would do it! lol
…so yeah…she got the white marlin tail “but that tail isn’t white it’s -” I know, I am referring to the white marlin species, which, no, is not white…other than the underbelly…actually it looks a lot like other marlins, just smaller/a little less bulky.
she needed something equivalent to the cheetah speediness, annnnd that would be a marlin (nope, not a mako shark like you’ve heard, marlins, sailfish, wahoo, etc. I believe sailfish is the fastest, but I couldn’t get that design to work, so next down was marlin) so…probably a mer-person type that could really be nasty if it wants to be…however she probably hasn’t fully realized that yet.
and omg, so much trouble with that bra lol…honestly the okay-with-non-vulgar-nudity part of me just wanted to screw the whole thing but I can’t do that…for several reasons 8/…a few of which include the fact that she’s technically underage, and I don’t want to scare the sh** out of my followers lol…so I had to give her something.
So apparently Esie is one of those characters that looks WAY older when given an updo and lipstick (and a little eyeshadow, but I think it’s mainly the lipcolor)
And NEW DRESS :D lol…I shouldn’t just draw pieces of dresses like this…I now have an urge to draw the rest of it, which may well happen, stay tuned…if you like clothing design things…
and NO that is not her bra sticking out, that’s a part of the dress …her bra is probably somewhere down there trying really hard to shape/squeeze whatever tiny bit she does have in a way that fit/fills the front of that dress…which would mean pretty as this is, it’s probably not that comfortable.
in the end this mainly came up as I-need-to-draw-something-finished fodder…as opposed to just sketchy things. but…I…guess this could be her attire for anything fancy SH attends? Sandra did have to mingle with a lot of upper crust, etc. I imagine there might be a few occasions at least… omg…her boys having to dress up…pffft lol XD
((crap looks like no “high-res” link, sorry. guess they’re messing with things they shouldn’t…No tumblr! don’t do the ugly facebook thing! D8 lol))
Here, have some new art for the Esie blog, and yes art has been changed on the blog already. Just the sidebar and character info art.
as stated, these came off those graphite sketches I churned out the other night.
*shoves sketches in people’s faces* THat…what is that…?
freakinnnngGRAAAAPHIIIIITE >8D that’s what that mess is!!
*flails for 5 minutes straight*
no seriously though…it feels good…even better, these are viable base sketches to turn into sidebar/info art for the RP blog…obviously, YES they clearly need some tweaking etc. but…just…I’m just so…HAPPY quq…
I haven’t been able to get any remotely viable sketches out digitally for the past week or two and now these come out on paper and Weeeeee~!
Obviously I had to alter it to work in a zoidy context, so “sands”, “lasers” and no hair-in-the-wind part…since that doesn’t happen inside a zoid cockpit…but yeah, it just kind of worked - What with the speculation that Esie, at least for a good ways into the future (during and post series) would not want/would be afraid of the prospect of romantic relationships generally perceiving that such would ultimately rob her of her hard-won “freedom” XD
So here you go, highly-OOC Esie “poetically” protesting the prospect of marriage/romantic relationships.
and yes, lots of errors in this sketch, but I purposely did it without the lasso tool, I…need to learn to draw again basically.
I kind of want to draw Esie doing the “Brave” parody thing about staying single XD
it would be totally ooc and humor verse but so amusing …to me at least…>_>
"I don’t want to get married, I want to stay single and ride through the sands, firing lasers into the sunset~"
lol…obviously, “let my hair flow in the wind” part isn’t present because…well…one’s hair doesn’t blow in the wind when they’re in a zoid cockpit.
…meanwhile matchmaker!Sheba would be all like “OH WOE IS ME - MY PILOT WILL NEVER RULE OVER HER OWN FAMILY UNIT AS SHE WILL ALLOW THE RIVAL FEMALES TO CLAIM ALL THE SUITABLE MATES”
noticing via sketch how huge Esie’s eyes still are and that I may need to change them to get her to fit in visually with the other fuzors peeps in my style…
But they’re SO FREAKING FUN when it comes to expressions dammit!! XD
but yeah, the size of her eyes has been an ongoing issue in the visual development of both her and the fuzors characters as I translate them into my style…They’ve always been large, but I fear they’re too large to allow her to really gel with the other characters stylistically, sometimes makes me feel like I’m drawing in two different styles. which isn’t good.
but yeah at the same time the huge pale, small-pupil eyes have almost become a trademark for her - at least in my head. They work so well for communicating that “edge’ of hers …and no…not “edge” as some people use “edge”…like nervous/high strung “edge”. lol so part of me really doesn’t want to change them.
I dunno, we’ll see, could be the problem isn’t as bad as I think, and I won’t have to change her much…I really hope not, because yeah…they’re really fun to play with XD squash and stretch ftw!!
omg…cheetah!Esie is becoming a thing…send help 8| LOL
I don’t knoooow, she just makes such a cute, huge-eyed cheetah XD started with the “O_O - target acquired - ” stalk/stare…then the OMG WHAT IS THAT???MUST BOLT!!!
…and then for some reason I drew her looking all post-fight-gone-wrong and looking pitifully beat up and exhausted…like "omg…I just gonna lie here and pant painfully for a while…or a week…or forever…"…
…I blame the fact that I was watching another nature doc while doing this, and a lioness looked about like that after she was bitten in the head and severely injured by a hippo (yet amazingly she survived 8|) and all the other lions were all hanging around her and keeping watch and the feels were too much and it just spilled over…or something 8’( lol
…not that her teammates would be the type to fawn or worry over others…accept maybe Luke…if he was in his right mind at the time…and returned the “kinda sorta think we should be friends” feels…
