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.
…But I make no promises, and it will be a little while at least, because I still need to tinker with the configuration.
But it’s past 4am and I’m tired and my knee hurts for stupid reasons. so later peeps :)
there…a horse…a very angry horse…not quite the particular horse I wanted but I horse’d lol
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…
Behold the atrocity that is the Gairyuki/saix LOL
obviously just a really crappy recolor of Sheba’s lineart…but yeah, I saw that one saix…then the weird/funny vision occurred…and then I remembered I had a saix lineart floating around, and then…uh…THIS. yeah…
obviously produced out of complete absurdity.
this can’t happen by the nature of zoids…unless something Terrible happened to Gairyuki and Sheba and someone screwed around really strangely with cores? 8| omg Luke! what have you done?? …either way…now I see a blue and orange lighting saix with an identity crisis that runs around chomping on things and trying to throw around weight that it doesn’t actually have because it’s a cheetah that thinks it’s a t-rex…
but the blue would be a very pretty blue…if it got any of “mommy’s” pearly sheen.
oh…and it would be hilarious if it has an under-developed CPC that only activates at inappropriate times…like when it’s over excited or nervous…and sometimes looks like it’s going to vomit but instead of puke it produces a freaking laser.
….but I don’t know if I’d be up to learning anything and I don’t know if I’d ever actually get around to using it :P…plus it appears remotely nice 2D software is expensive…even flipbook’s up there… all the “free” stuff looks really gimicky and watered down. just because I’m in the “hobbyist” category, doesn’t mean visual quality etc. is unimportant to me :/ *facedesk* meeeeeeeh…..
Thought he’d never come out 8| (part of the issue might be that I can find next to 0 visual ref for him *facedesk*)…but when he did it was highly amusing XD his face is a lot of fun to mess around with.
Just some basic stuff - smug-bastard smirk, thoroughly not amused, and then I wanted to go the other direction with the eyes wide open, so we have the “OH SH**!!”
at this point his “redesign” for me is not cemented, as in eye shapes, etc. etc. but this was a fun session, so here ya go…for some reason the remake festering in my head has him doing duel roles as relatively serious bad-guy … and occasional comic relief. lol
