Making people who want sketches draw what they want me to draw first. Keeps it fun for me, and stressful for them!
I will post the full size pictures and some print dates over the next couple of days, but I wanted to write out what’s on my mind first. tl;dr: series finished, shirts and prints soon.
I am rather emotional about finishing this series. Not just because I was working on these designs on and…
Rookie Detective and Striking Thief! Loosely based off of the hairstyles of Athena Sykes from Ace Attorney 5 and Professor Sycamore from Pokemon X/Y. Our writer wrote an amazing little snippet about these two that made me SHIP THEM SO HARD?? Rookie x Thief ;o; I really want to draw these two again in something a little more shippy kyaaaaaa….
Here’s a closeup shot of the Striking Thief:
this will always be one of my favorite pictures
Let’s Draw: Lady Knights
Compiled them all into a photoset. The prompts, respectively:1) Fists, Top Heavy, Nervous, Indian, Shark/Piscine
2) Bow, Petite, Honest, Spanish, Boar
3) Staff, Skinny, Evil, Aztec, Insectoid
4) Mace, Bulky, Mischievous, Russian, Big Cat
5) Axe, Short, Glum, Japanese, Snake
6) Sword, Athletic, Bashful, Roman, Bird of Prey
7) Shield, Perky, Plump, English, Rabbit
Another fun exercise! At the moment I’m thinking up another prompt to try. Hopefully it’ll be just as interesting!
It’s no secret that I like Lady Knights like, a lot. I put together a little randomizer as a sort of exercise. Then I thought, why not share it?
So here’s the thing. Five categories of traits. Pick three and run with it! Bonus challenge: do all five categories. And of course you’re free to add to the categories if what you want isn’t in there. Have fun with it! Don’t forget to tag #Lady Knights so I can see the cool stuff you come up with!
Here’s my starter to kick things off: Fists, Top Heavy, Nervous, Indian, Shark/Piscine.
If You’re Not Watching Cartoon Network’s ‘Adventure Time,’ Now’s the Perfect Time to Start — Here’s Why
Of course you’re watching Adventure Time. But Eric Kohn, Chief Film Critic/Senior Editor over on Indiewire, lays out a pretty good argument that now’s an ideal time for the uninitiated to jump on in.
… make no mistake: “Adventure Time” remains of the most creative television shows around, and the last dozen or so episodes rank among the best examples of its narrative strengths.
Read Eric’s full article here.
Similarly, a judge in Philadelphia ruled that a sex worker whom multiple men had raped at gunpoint hadn’t been raped at all -she’d just been robbed. The victim, a twenty-year-old woman, who’d worked for an escort service and obtained clients via Craigslist, had agreed to certain sexual acts with the defendant for a set amount of money. But he lured her to an abandoned piece of property and pulled a gun -then more men started showing up. When a fifth man was invited to assault her, he instead helped her get dressed and leave because he saw that she was crying. But municipal judge Teresa Carr Deni insisted that what happened to this woman wasn’t rape -it was “theft of services”.
“I thought rape was a terrible trauma,” Deni told a Philadelphia Daily News columnist. “[A case like this] minimized true rape cases and demeans women who are really raped.”
Women who are “really” raped. You can’t get much clearer than that -a sex worker just doesn’t classify as one of these victims.
