好男子 ~ Handsome mens

今日は!Here we have the bulk of the art I’ve done so far this year presented in a fun Japanese twitter meme…And all of it drawn within the last week for the sake of said meme. The template is for drawing various types of handsome men. I figured it’d be a good way to get back into drawing since I hadn’t done much in a while, and what better excuse than drawing a bunch of cute lads.

Most of the guys featured here should be familiar faces, though some I haven’t drawn in a really long time, and there is one qt in there that I’ve never posted before. Here’s a detailed breakdown:

真面目~ Serious: This is a really quick reimagining of Darren from my ancient and rather shitty webcomic, Spiritual Soul.

クール ~ Cool: Gajdren, from The Vessel’s Blood.

わんこ ~ Doggy: Oscar. Who is a bit of an oddball here–He’s not an actual character from one of my stories like the rest, but a sim! If you’re wondering how a sim made it into this gaggle of characters, well, I’ve been considering making him a part of the Fuzz & Whimsy storyline ever since I drew him the first time. Of course, that would require me to actually work on F&W some more.

素朴 ~ Naive: Eric. Another quick Spiritual Soul Reimagining, and probably the first time I’ve drawn him since I quit working on the comic(like 10 years ago?).

セクシー ~ Sexy: Vulfrey, the main character of The Vessel’s Blood. And with no resting bitch face for a change.

天然 ~ Airhead: Jorge, from Fuzz & Whimsy. To be honest, he’s only a little bit of an airhead, but someone had to go here. I’m sure he’s bashed his head enough times to count.

熱血 ~ Hot blooded: This is the one I’ve never posted before, his name is Kaill. You can probably guess from the similarities in the armor he and Gajdren have on that he’s also from The Vessel’s Blood. And that’s all I’m gonna say about that. We’ll just call this a sneak peek ’til I get off my ass and post up his portrait and bio.

元気 ~ Energetic: Felix, from Fuzz & Whimsy

おっとり ~ Gentle: Zack, from Fuzz & Whimsy

好 ~ Fav: Alex, from Fuzz & Whimsy and of course my qt website mascot. Although, much as I love Alex, I was tempted to put some pointy eared elfish monster lad here, because I love ’em, but I decided to stick with the normal boys for this chart. And plus I couldn’t leave Alex out like that.

Anyhow, I had a lot of fun filling this thing in, and it felt good drawing so much after so long. I need to keep at it, get more practice in, and draw more than just headshots. But it’s a start.

Been a while…

Sorry ’bout the lack of posts, I had a pretty rough start to the year and ended up slacking off for a while. A pretty long while unfortunately. But I’m still kicking, and trying to get back at it. I figured I’d throw out a few updates on the shit I’m (supposed to be) working on.

First things first, I’ve still not finished the webpage remodel I mentioned last year, but hopefully I can get that in before the end of this year. The only thing holding it up was the art for the front page, and I’ve nearly finished that…But I’m thinking about scrapping it and using something fresh. I do like it, but the base sketch is three years old now. Though I may still use it anyway, but I have a newer sketch that I’m kind of fond of that I want to experiment with before I make up my mind.

As for writing, The Vessel’s Blood is still in its final major edit. It’s been a slow go, but it’s coming out really solid. I’m really excited to get the damn thing finished. As for Fuzz & Whimsy, I’ve not done much with it, and probably won’t for a while while I’m finishing up TVB, but I do plan to re-edit the two stories that are currently up on the site whenever I get the rest of the website junk ready.

I suppose that’s ’bout all, what little art I’ve done I’ll share in another post. And I’ll get back to posting character portraits and what not soon.
