SOD.031 – Elf lady

Another one that turned into an illustration rather than just a sketch.

031

No reference on this one, although I did steal the sword hilts from HM3 parts.

SOD.030 – Pixie gnomes

I keep calling this guy a gnome, but he’s way too small for that if he’s using a button as a shield and a needle as a sword. So he’s like, um, a pixie gnome. Or something.

I did a screencast of this one as well, with the added “bonus” that I got my microphone and recorded audio with it, explaining what I’m doing as I go. I lost track of time a bit and didn’t actually finish it completely in the ten minute limit, but I get fairly close.

Plus, this way people in the next room who can’t see the screen can find me irritating as well. So that’s nice.

Let me know if the audio’s too low or high or inane or whatnot. There’s a weird sound periodically that sounds like I’m going “TKK!” with my mouth, but it’s actually the keyboard clacking when I toggle between various digital tools (zoom, the hand to move the screen, undo, etc.).

SOD.029 – Group shot

029

These are all freehand, no reference. I started with the guy at the upper left. I kind of liked him and was on a roll, so I drew the next guy, with the metal cap. I liked him too, which is fairly unusual (two in a row, woot!) so, feeling greatly daring, I went for the female. After some tweaking, she was also good, so it was clearly time for a gorilla/chimp super-scientist to join the team.

What team? No clue. Maybe they’re strangers who just happened to show up for their picture in the same outfit. Em-barr-assing!

RP: More prom flashbacks

Poll Position: It’s all Greek to me …

Sorry for posting this a couple of days late, but this week your dilemma is:

{democracy:118}

Now, you’re not going to actually BECOME the person in question, you’re just going to have powers BASED ON them. So keep that in mind as we join the discussion after the jump.

SOD.028 – Come hither

028

I took this from a reference photo, then super-fied it.
