All of this is awkward repost from my tumblr:

Hey Tumblr,
Remember when I had other fandoms besides Transformers? Yeah, me neither. However, it turns out other people do. I told Plurk I'd work on some fanart for the first (couple) fandom(s) of mine people listed and this was one of them. 

Blame Sharn and Expo for this. Also Winzler. In fact, this WIP is only uploaded because Winzler told me to.

ANYWAY, ENJOY YOUR NOT-TERRIBLY-ORIGINAL fanart. The ghost is angry because they left candy all over the floor.


 
 
More WIPS, and this time from the expected fandom. Here's the second set from that Plurk draw I did, where I said I'd make some fanart for the first fandom(s) listed.
  1. Drift from MTMTE with something to show you.
  2.  
  3. This was for a game where we (me and my mates) were supposed to colour over this Fall of Cybertron Shockwave toy for lighting practice and then show each other... Turns out that in the wee hours of the morning, I have really poor reading comprehension and at some point between 2 and 3 AM ... the rules got lost and I just started making shit up.
  4.  
  5. Oops.
I plan to finish both of these. ... And oh look, it is 1: 50 AM over here, and I bet, if I were to follow historical trends... that I'm not making too much sense right now. OH WELL. TOO BAD. If I have to suffer looking at these WIPs on my desktop SO DO YOU.

I'm sorry.

You know what, Blog? I know you really like that look, but you’ve been wearing that same thing since June 10th and honestly, you’re making me a little uncomfortable. Time to change out of that and put on something new. Or at least something that doesn’t look that gross. Or smell… I mean really, Blog. Have you even put that in the laundry at all… you know what? Forget I asked.

What I’m trying to say here is that I’ve gotten tired of looking at that sad colour-spot-test thing that’s been haunting my most recent post page. Also, I’m embarrassed by how awkward it is, even if it is just a WIP.  So to flush out the bad, here’s the much nicer looking sketchy until I have time to actually colour this properly.

I also mentioned in the last post that I was waffling between making Rinzler tall or short. I wasn’t joking about having gotten a more refined sketch of tiny!Rinzler, and while he looks fine (barring a few anatomy issues I’ll have to fix up) he just doesn’t look as striking as tall!Rinzler. Also, with Uprsing’s crazy stretched out insanely awkwardly tall anatomy going on, maybe tall is the right way to go? Even though this picture is dated July 2011, I’m so slow at art, that by now, there’s already been at least 3+ similar themed Tron fanarts floating around. I’ll admit I’ve been a little nervous to continue working on this for fear that someone’ll jump out of a bush and call me a dreaded ‘idea-stealer.’ What I think I need to do here, Blog, is remind myself that ALL ideas have already been done, flip my hair over my shoulder, and just do what I want. I still might need you to hold my hand though, Blog. You know, for reasons.

PS: that red elbow-y sort of thing that’s going on in the left side there was my sketch for a matching Ram who I’d also put in a suit. These two were supposed to be based off an AU from the 60′s where they were both varying degrees of detectives. Unfortunately that endeavour kind of lost steam, so it’ll just be Rinzler in the end that’ll get completed. Once upon a time, I had a Clu in there too. Oh well, at least I’ve a better chance of finishing this now.

Hey Blog, this is what you get for taking forever at doing your art. Sure, “concentrate on real life,” they said, “it’ll be a good, idea” they said; “you’ll thank us later when you’re able to pay your bills.” Yeah, well, THANKS FOR NOTHING, Practical Advice. You get all tangled up with school, work, and sig figs, and next thing you know a new television show has come out, and unless you can finagle your picture done before a couple more canon reveals, all your fanwork won’t make any sense.

That’s what you get for trying to take care of business, Blog. Leave it to you to take care of exactly the wrong business.

And speaking of business, let’s talk funny business. Namely the funny business of Bruce Boxleitner be Tron be Rinzler be Anis Cheurfa and their distinctly wavering heights. Originally I was going to draw short Legacy Rinzler, but the sketch came out 80′s Tron tall. I’ve got a more refined sketch of the bloke with a smaller stature, but given how lanky everyone is in Uprising (which I still haven’t watched) I wonder if I should retool this guy to be somewhat less short?

Remember the WIP I was working on way back in this post? Well after rage quitting and then moping around for 3 months because of a variety of reasons including saving over the original PSD with a lossy .JPG file, I finally found the time to finish it.

This is a gift along with this fic for the artist of the original lines.  In the next post I’ll link the tutorial and the couple of animations I did with this guy.

What it says on the tin. I accidentally saved a .PNG file over my working .PSD file, and now I’ve effectively got to paint over this, or start anew. Ah well, I will persevere for my art! Or you know, for someone else’s art. Namely that someone else is the ever fabulous infiniteviking who graciously let me slap some colours onto her already stunning lineart. I’m kind of down about losing all the work I’d done on this, but eh, what can you do? C’est la vie n’est-ce pas?

This is going to be part of an ADVENT CALENDAR EVENT I’m hosting, where every day of March for the first 11 days (or possibly the first 30 days if I can manage) I’m going to upload/gift a fandom related thing to someone (and in some cases, just straight up mail some lucky SOBs some tangible goods). Fandoms are going to be Tron and Transformers almost exclusively.  The above image is part of one person’s gift, and I’m hoping I can pretty it up (and re-relearn photoshop in the precess since idekwtf I’m doing at this point) in order to make it an acceptable present … since, y’know, I didn’t even do half the work.
