I’ve been thinking of where to allocate my time lately. Rather than spending weeks or more creating words and grammar for alien lines, I made a random alien text brush.
I was reading through my old strips to prepare for writing the next chapter, and thought that maybe putting all those buttons on a one-armed character's shirt wasn't the best idea. Then I did some research, and found it wasn't really that unrealistic.
I drew this based on this video, but after finishing I thought to look up something specific to smaller shirt buttons (and from someone with a stump to work with) and found this. Maybe I'll have him do it that way if he shows up again (and I show him getting dressed for some reason.)
I made a banner image for the Facebook page. It isn’t the right size for this page, so I figured I’d just post it here.
A group I’m in on DeviantArt regularly has art contests. The current theme is showering, so I figured I’d make a submission.
Also, I just spent most of the day figuring out how to get this to work after running into the apparently infamous “HTML error” when trying to upload it. I ended up using the “Add From Server” plugin.
Hopefully the error will go away as mysteriously as it came.
I just felt like parodying that picture that’s been going around the Internet.
And the original, if you haven’t seen it yet:
The supporting cast from the upcoming Ayuri chapter 4, drawn at 1/10th scale.
In honor of Ayuri turning 2, I figured I'd do a quick comparison of how the character designs and art style have changed.
As a bonus, I've included some concept art I did the first time I was going to start up the comic, in 2014. I'm not sure Nal and Nilje really count as the same character, but whatever. They're both the Ayuri's mechanic.
