      A combination of elements drawn (and slightly tweaked) from the ending section of this dream. It was like some weird Role playing game. Somehow what started as a simple joke sketch turned into a week long nightmare of improper perspective and detailing the background. It was a very wonderfully strange dream, that one.

      I would only realize halfway through this that the mushroom smoking weed; it's a drug doing drugs. My subcon is either really clever or just bored.

      I did these a long time ago and never uploaded them.



      I'm pretty sure I used a whole bunch of references for Jack here, but things still ended up looking a little off. (Also come to find out he might not ever be appearing in my dreams again like so since he apparently became permanently fused with another dream character.) That'll have to go into my dreamviews DJ at some point. I was hoping I would draw all my dream characters consecutively and have nice badges to go in my dream journal, but I lost motivation to to do the other two.



      I was also looking at efficiency. I timed myself only drawing this for about 75 minutes (plus an undoccumented amount of time redrawing the ear), trying to get out of my usual bad habits of doing things like watching youtube videos and listening to music while I draw, since that probably stretches the time I spend even longer. And 75 minutes for a simple bust shot of a character that I consider to be moderatley hard to draw. To say my art moved at a snails pace, I think would be an insult to snails everywhere. I defiantly feel like there could be some improvement there while keeping the at or above the level of quality I have now. Maybe something in my process and workflow is slowing me up.

      Another more of a concept that I'll draw better later when I am more confident in it. I had this idea that Raiah would make robotic shadows of herself. (Raiah-obots if you will.) It seems like a cool idea and when I was considering that when I got around to doing a story or comic on her, I had this concept that she gets more powerful not through training, but by engineering and building things that offer her more of an advantage. (Both in fighting monsters and in her true life goal of being a musician.)

      The part of the concept I couldn't decide on is if the bots should just be automatic drones, or if they should have personality, and this kind of depicts them in-between the two. If they were to have personalities then maybe each one would be representative of one of Raiah's main personality traits. Io (orange) would be her aggressive side, and play the drums, and always be looking to prove herself stronger and tougher than the others. Europa (blue) would be representative of Raiah's more intelligent, scientific side; being the most logical and calculating, the most robotic, and probably try to establish herself as some kind of leader amongst the bots, and play keyboard. Callisto (black) would represent her creator's childlike side, being the one to make jokes to lighten the mood, being impatient and jumping to conclusions, and maybe complaining of being bored when the going gets slow. Ganymede (white) would be the confident, optimistic one. Perhaps a bit of a blend of all the traits of the other bots, making her be the closest to her creator's personality, and play Bass.

      And of course they're all named after the moons of Jupiter since Raiah is an established Astronomy nerd.

      But I still don't know what's cooler. Imagining all of the bots going into battle against some powerful opponent or all of them on stage playing Daft Punk's "Robot Rock".

      Satri Khyagusa. This was actually the second attempt at drawing her. The first one looked off in so many ways. The only thing that rly bugs me about this one is the low angle on what is supposed to be a very short character.



      And Maxwell Hexos. (Finally I've completed all the Hexos siblings.) Other than the fact his welding mask look like it's about to fall off the back of his head to me, I really like this one.

      I've started messing around with line weight variations a little with these two. Efficiency was also a matter. I think including the full redraw, this was a little under two hours.

      I also made a tumblr where I'll be cross posting a lot of art and maybe starting a comic. Right now it's just two chara bios but I've been looking to do more.

      Rythe; Schrodinger's man. Locked in a living paradox, he is both dead and alive at the same time, and has been that way for over 500 years. I wonder what happens when he is 'observed' and it is decided whether he has been dead or alive this whole time. It doesn't seem as though being observed by any human being will cause that though.

      I tried drawing a skull. (I actually drew several.) and then building half his face up over it. Though at some point in the future I would like to do a fully human and a fully skeletal iteration.

      He gives me a vibe of Scar from Fullmetal Alchemist. Though I feel like that might have inspired his character and design even if I didn't intentionally reference it.




      Hyuna, the Noble Wendigo. This is honestly my favorite character badge out of all of the ones that I've drawn. I like the addition of the braids in his hair though if I continue to draw him, like in another full body, I want to put more hair on his body. After all I've heard of a lot of different interpretations of the Wendigo, where some are more beastlike and others are more human like and in designing this character I was essentially combining the elements from different interpretations that I liked the most.



      And a Panda Cat. ._. I like the eyes being darker than pure white so I can add that reflection.

      [23:16] <@spellbee2|Asleep> if you need an idea, draw a robo-shark fighting a cyborg-llama-man
      [23:16] <@spellbee2|Asleep> with explosions and lasers in the background



      The deed is done.

      I like your characters! The last pic looks like a character that could have appeared on regular show. Also, I can't help but mention this but your character style makes me think of the anime Noein. Mostly cause of the eyes I guess. Oh and not that your art isn't good the way it is but I think if you add more detail to the furs and hair on the top of the head of first pic it would look cooler. Your lines are also very organic looking. Perhaps if you use the line/Curve tool or find a way to make smoother strokes it would create a crisp look to your art.

      Well cleaning linework is something illustrator spoiled me with for the longest time. (You remember my drawings were good, then got crappy, then were good once more. That's because I was working in illustrator before. It was nice, I could draw things with a mouse and had some coloring and layering options I would not otherwise have. But drawing every line and detail with a mouse in illustrator was sooo time consuming and became even more so when it got to creating shading and doing details like hair. Generally I find the best fix to the shoddy linework is to work in a larger resolution, weirdly enough Some of the strongest works I've done on the tablet thus far (The Mushroom dream and the Steampunk Raiah and Satri) were fairly high resolution and had small line weight. I don't really know why that is. Maybe my art just looks better like that.

      And the hair. I was trying to imitate what my drawing professor tells me, to think of hair as shape with texture, rather than individual strands. I will look into how I could render short hair differently. (I'm also not so sure about the hair around the sides of the head and on where the facial hair should be, that looked a whole lot better in my head, but I didn't want to give him a full beard.) But perhaps more texture would help. I need to get back into the habit of drawing something everyday, It was really helping me to improve. And honestly I'm happy with the style I developed working in illustrator. (Of course styles can be improved and changed.) With the value represented through shape. I've tried painting with gradation and blending before to various levels of success. (But haven't posted the drawings.)

      Also I still want to see screenshots of your game, even if you're not going to post it. Also you said you were planning on programming an RPG. Tell me about what kind of features you would want it to have?

      Ohhhh,where is my head? -I forgor you use to draw with a mouse. Yeah, working with a higher resolution is good. I also like small line weight but at certain times varying it can be good depending on the drawing. I think adding more texture would have been fine than. I need to look at it more like that too so I wouldn't mind looking at more of your drawings like examples of that.

      Im waiting on my brotherbut I will see if I can snap pics. I want to have a game with features, puzzles and an interesting story kind of like madfather or ib..Id go into it more but my battery is going to die. TTyl

      I wish I had saved the chat that inspired this. Ah well, this version is better.
