I really don’t want to lose my motivation on this one cuz I just think it’s come out so pretty lately. This is the inked version of my Venus As A Boy sketch I refined the other day.
I felt really shitty yesterday after work so I made myself feel a tad bit better by inking this.
"He believes in beauty, He’s Venus as a boy…..”
I’d had this inked and partially watercolored several months back but when I went to drag it out of its spot again it seems I’ve either misplaced it or it’s just grown legs and disappeared cuz I can’t find it anywhere. So I retransferred and reinked it all over again on another sheet of watercolor paper and am gonna redo the process. I’d kind of messed up on the merman’s tail to begin with so eh here’s to restarting from scratch and hoping it goes better in round 2.
I couldn’t sleep last night so after working on some commissions I drug this thing back out again to refine it. It’s now finally on the watercolor paper and ready to ink and wash. Now if I could only kick my arse into gear to finally finish it cuz I’m super proud of how the sketch refining came out. It’s been sitting untouched past rough sketch stage since like august or so and I have been feeling the itch to refine it the last week after coming across the initial rough sketch.
It’s inspired off of Bjork’s “Venus As A Boy” song. It’s probably totally unfitting to the song but it works for me and I am actually for once very proud of a piece.
So I wrote this thing and I wound up actually liking something I wrote, and then I felt the need to add faces to the characters in the thing so I did, and then I liked the drawings and felt the need to name them.
I came up with a love story between a demon and a dove and foolishly talked myself into personifying the dove for fun then had no choice but to actually draw the demon with his actual dove…..and then I named them cuz I want to make them mine and I’m lame like that.
Working names atm are Morfran (literally means “ugly demon”) and Aloma (literally means “dove”)….cuz I’m horrible at naming stuff……ugh someone end me.
Anywho have a demon and a dove spirit….thing….yeah……and the dove is genderless so have at it however you like.
This is an absolutely horrendous sketch of these two but as a super quick V-day vomit sketch I cooked up a JJ-Cy image for Ashley. I made him too pudgy at first then trimmed him down….I spent all of 30-45 minutes on it so there is no refinement to be seen here. Please forgive me, I know I draw better than this >.<’
Happy V-day though folks.
I went in a completely different direction than she was thinking but the gf was watching Moulin Rouge tonight and I was sitting there like a bump on a log and not doodling a thing so I genderswapped. She has another idea that’s even better though so I’ll have to do that one later on. In the meantime have superfemme lady-man Satine.
So last night we watched Thumbellina and my gf’s been on a huge genderbend thing that got triggered by all the Disney genderbending so it’s been Rule63! all the things lately which is always awesome.
