<Perry> : 20 minutes. Drawn on a mini-whiteboard with a few (supposedly erasable) whiteboard markers and Copics.
I got bored halfway through class one day, and ended up drawing a random ditsy platypus. But we all know any hatted platypus is Perry, so I drew the hat as well. I later tried to erase the whiteboard markers, and it stuck to the board more then the copics (can you believe that?) so I gave up and left the drawing on the board. Luckily it’s mine.
That said, I can guarantee that at least half of the Chinese is correct, even if syntax or whatever is wrong. Individually the words make sense. It basically just says “Platypus Perry”.
<John Egbert> : About 40 minutes. Drawn on dotpict, an Android app, on phone with fat fingers.
I’m so excited that Hiveswap is out, but I haven’t even bought the game yet. What am I doing, really? Whatever the case, I’m glad I haven’t been too spoiled on it by my fervent following of Homestuck threads on their Google+ (who uses it? me that’s who ::::) ) and by scrolling through the Discord.
Instead, until I get the game and get around to playing it, I’m just going to post art of precious adorkable Heir of Breath. Pixel art is so much fun to make when you have a fixed palette to work with, though I have next to no skill in it. Dotpict is really really useful.
(I actually kind of wish JohnRox became canon but oh well :C )
<Rosemary> : About 3 hours. Drawn on Microsoft Paint with a tablet pen.
Guess who finally got her tablet pen back? I started work on this during the so-called “Rosemary Day” on the Homestuck reddit, but forgot about it for a while. It was mostly just to spite this one commenter complaining about how everyone posted “Only Rosemary” on the reddit, even though there was at most 1 Rosemary post per page before they said anything. Everyone immediately took the opportunity to post pictures of the two together. I don’t ship it fervently myself, and even then I still see them as Moirails and not Matesprits, so I don’t know. I came back only to draw Kanaya, really.
How does one draw a lamb? They don’t have sensible proportions by any means.
(Oops I forgot to write Kanaya’s name as a tag oh well)
<Frisk//Determination> : Around 4 hours spent working on it, probably. Drawn on paper using Copic markers.
I like the concept behind Undertale, and it’s a very fun game. This is the first time I’ve drawn more than one character in the same scene, and also the first time drawing a goatchild thing, so it kind of looks funky. I tried to remove the black line, but it’s impossible. I think some sort of dye got onto the paper and I can’t remove it, so it’s stuck there forever now. The location’s supposed to be the Final Corridor where you encounter Sans, although theoretically it could be the Throne Room too. I really like the aesthetic of the Final Corridor, and it seems fitting to be used as Frisk’s “room” per se in this.
I might make this part of a series of drawings starring the 7 Fallen Humans and a corresponding “boss” monster you make friends with throughout the game. (When I say boss, I mean the main monsters that every player has to fight, not really Boss Monsters specifically.) This probably will be part of the “good end” set.
<Egbert>. About 2 hours, max? Drawn on S Note with a phone pen.
My tablet pen is still missing, so I can’t make any new digital art. Even so, I still have a small stack of old ones I never bothered to upload, so here they are. This one comes from September 2016, if I’m right.
This is John Egbert from Homestuck, back when my friend first started reading it. I made this as a “welcome/congratulations” gift for her since I love Homestuck, but unfortunately she never actually finished the Web comic. Still waiting on the day they finally release Hiveswap, but I doubt I’ll ever really lose interest in the comic.
<Sapphire-Skye> : Around 3 hours lmao. Drawn on Autodesk Sketchbook using a tablet pen.
I drew her quite a long time ago, like the large majority of a year, but I am still super proud of this specific drawing. And I really love her design, mostly because at the end of the day this is one of my main original characters. Sapphire Indigo Irendahz, or Sapphire-Skye Rose Angellia, is a generic-purpose persona I had used for quite a long time, but eventually she developed to become her own character and I simply had to use her somewhere.
This is her Card!Outfit, which is a mini-universe where everyone is associated to only one of the kingdoms that are represented by suits of cards. Her suit-kingdom is Clover, which is why everything is green.
<Arcadia> : Around 2 hours. Drawn on flockmod.com using a mouse.
She’s one of my Homestuck OCs, who acts as the narrator to the actual Foursides crew. I really do love her. Also, I’ve found that having multiple layers is one of the most useful things if you have to draw on the computer, period. This is especially true when you have to use an inaccurate mouse to do everything, from sketching to colouring. It’s easier to just accept having a few mistakes here and there.
Flockmod seems great to use when you want to draw stupid things with your friends or even random strangers on the internet. You’ll also see many different art styles come out.
Agh, why did my tablet pen have to disappear? :C
