The more you learn, man, the less you know.
uh-oh, the fanart begins
Some simple face icons I’ve made for my Guild Wars 2 tumblr (hence the URL tagged on them all).
Zollis Snowspur, my charr ranger
Valentinepanda as a surprise birthday gift for ghostsofascalon
Téide, my sylvari thief, also because I wanted to see how these icons would work with a humanoid face
then I drew myself as a hobbit because
I’m short, fat, and pretty much just want to live in a cosy underground house and eat awesome food all day and tend to my garden and smoke a pipe while reading in front of the fireplace ok
…also I always imagined the hobbits with hairy damn feet not the paltry pubepaws the movie hobbits have, sorry
ugh got this far with the scales and quit for the night. I have no idea what I’m doinnnggggg
Please enjoy this tiny Charr.
so, uh. Kazui Darma kind of turned into an independent character, too; a werepigeon because everyone loves were-things right?!
first I just wanted to draw him in my usual style (and with his hair spiked)
stubbly leg hair because he sometimes shaves it off but he’s really lazy about it. he’s a short fucker too, like 5’2”. true story: I want those shoes. click here to take his dumb shades off
then I was trying to figure out the halfway/battle form anatomy (following the were-creature rules of “badass battle form with triple the mass of whichever form is larger, human or animal”). so like, 7’ crowned pigeon I guess? that’s kind of terrifying actually, but you know. birds are pretty scary.
and trying to mix bird anatomy with human, oh man no. this anatomy is terrible, please forgive
I figure in that form he actually stands upright, but it’s more comfortable to tilt forward (like drawn) when walking. he’s got a thumb and finger poking out at the wing wrist, and a vestigial pinky (if you pick apart his covert feathers you’ll find the claw).
((Also a friendly reminder that if you follow several of my tumblrs and don’t want to see these posts twice: add #narcissism reblog to tumblr saviour!))
that awkward moment when you make a Hatoful fan character
I was just doodling various cartoony birds and then Kazui Darma the victoria crowned pigeon happened (bottom drawing reference here)
dumb pointy anime shades because that’s what the eye markings on crowned pigeons reminds me of. and mohawk, of course. sometimes he spikes it
he tries to be a cool dude but he’s really just kind of a giant dork, he thinks he’s badass riding around town on his electric bicycle without a helmet ooo
also a bonus jambu fruit dove, which would probably be a horrifyingly flamboyant dude nooo we’ve already got Tohri
…and trying to draw in anime style was fun I feel 17 again
Test run for a pigeon pattern… presenting a pocket Ryouta!
Not bad for a prototype, I suppose. I think I’d like to make him in a softer grey, as I’m basing him off Moa’s manga design. I may change how I make the feet; I’d like them to be wired so birds can perch on things.
Also needs a little tie, or a maid outfit.
More birds to follow…
And if the timing is right
I’ll sneak off into the night
I’ll let myself be taken just for the thrill [x]
So I picture Meenah as really tall and bony, and I just figured it’d be adorable to see her hunched over kissing Karkles
Most of this was done in FireAlpaca, a free and simple art program!
and my weird headcanon/AU for trolls, tails and pawfeets are just cute okay. also blushing ears.
