I’M BEGINNING TO GROW CONCERNED FOR YOU PEOPLE…
if i ever stop reblogging this assume I am dead
The fuck did I just watch ?
A lot of you were asking if Aerick has always had a blue eye because you can’t recall that, and you’re right, he hasn’t, that’s a new design on him! He’s based on a paint quarter horse, and they can get blue eyes a little here and there and since Aerick already had a white eyebrow, it would be a waste to not give him a blue eye!
(Also I think I’ll change Sophie’s name to Sawyer, it appeals way more to me hrhh;;)
father and son
I really like the antarctic parka - never had it tho. :’)

I wish there’s a tf2 update where it just consists of weapons made of other existing weapons
"Are you frightened?" Medic asks. His voice is like black smoke, curling over Heavy’s trembling body and into his ears, his nose, his eyes. The heat is overwhelming, causing sweat to pour from his body. Medic touches him and he jolts, uncertain now of what he does and doesn’t want. Medic tugs the leash affixed to his collar, and he is drawn down, their lips connected but separated by the thick duct tape.
Eyes closed and brows knit, Heavy lets his tears fall silently as he finally gives in to desire.
you probably scrolled down looking for an explanation - this is the cast for an original novel in the works. If you have any questions about any of the characters, feel free to ask. I’ve spent countless hours on these characters and the plot, so I would love it if you’d take a moment to reblog and spread the word <3
'#yes i'm reblogging it again #i find it hard to believe #that out of 600+ followers #only about 14 take interest #come on guys this is literally my life #this is going to be a book some day #these are going to be the characters you will love #hopefully some more people will see it'
Considering that the overall colour harmony is about as good as my grandfather’s soup kitchen, that the characters look like rejects from ‘my mutated life’, and that half of them seem to be overcoming the force of gravitational pull on their posture, I’d be pretty damn happy to get a maximum of 14 people interested in this failed experiment of character design.
Let’s start with ‘Hermes’, or as I like to call him, ‘stinky Pete’. Just look at that thigh gap! But in all seriousness, what is up with those legs? They look liquified, but by the magic of his levitating parrot, he can fool his enemies into thinking he can stand upright. “But my style!” you say. Well, considering the majority of them are trying their best to imitate human anatomy, no, you cannot draw his legs like that. Those knuckles also look like beginner-level Japanese cartoons drawn by thirteen year old weeaboos, and when you’re trying to accomplish a detailed set of characters, that is not good. Do not Pass Go. Do not collect 600 notes.
Moving onto unnamed pin dancer. I’m not even going to bother telling you off for copying her pose off another picture. The problem with this, though, is that her right leg is meant to be on its side, when the armour design on the knee makes it look like the leg is supposed to be facing the viewer. The pose would look perfectly correct if the foot wasn’t on the fucking side! Do you even stop to think when you’re tracing, or are you too busy blaming it on others for your lack of popularity, instead of looking at your own work and figuring out what needs improvement?
Now onto the good part, fantasy animal anatomy. Nope, Vash isn’t going to be standing upright anytime soon with that tail. You just can’t expect to combine a kangaroo’s tail with a bird’s legs and expect it to be perfectly balanced. You just can’t! Mother nature would kick your ass if she ever heard about this. Also, have you ever thought about how those pants are going to fit on his legs? Protip: He must have been born with them, like he was born with all of those other retardations that caused his first sentence to be ‘Mommy, I want to die’.
And here’s a tip for you- when you decide that learning anatomy is too hard and you want to cheat and copy poses, maybe do that with the entire set, because Fabritzia looks like the one-in-a-million in your fictional universe who happened to be born with a normal amount of chromosomes.
Perhaps the worst legs in this set belong to Sawyer. Holy shit kiddo, you’ve managed to top yourself once again in fucking up even the most basic pointers of anatomy. Those legs look like something that would make your art professor consider bungee jumping without the cord. They’re both of different thickness, and seem to be missing knees (no doubt stolen by Stinky Pete). Her facial expression says it all; she’s resorted to drugs to keep the never ending pain at bay. That plague doctor really needs to take his fucking mask off and get with the times: physical deformations have never been this widespread.
I’m gonna skip a few to the last set. Nice shot with the attempt of diversity with the little person and all, but in case your lazy ass wanted to know, they have vastly different proportions compared to that of a small child. Unless he’s in the middle-age stage of progeria, in which case, he really shouldn’t be holding a gun, the poor kid. Moving past Flint, who seems to have been tragically born without knuckles on his right hand (and so has resorted to injecting lumps of clay), we finally come to the Asian version of Herbert the Pervert, who seems to have reached the threshold of aging and is now proceeding to melt, firstly with his mouth which is soon to fall of his chin, and then his fingers which look like the candle wax that dripped from his 20th birthday cake (I’m going to take the liberty to assume that all of your characters rapidly age as a result of the radioactive environment).
I thought that this was the saddest thing about this was that your self-entitlement told you that you deserved notes on this pile of mediocre rubbish. But no, my day was further ruined when you wrote ‘#this cast is the most important thing i’ve ever done’. Can you honestly say that about this? Were all those ‘countless’ (I’d estimate 5 at most) hours really worth it? I’ll answer that for you: No.
No, they were not.
Hello there excessively and unrealistically rude and angry friend.
Firstly, his name isn’t Hermes, it’s Hawk. The hawk’s name is not Hawk. The hawk’s name is Hermes. I thought this would be evident given that Jericho is listed first, before his pet. Secondly, the entire design has been changed, Hawk is now a woman, but I’ve had difficulty reposting the photoset because of the size. Thirdly, in reference to his legs here, they were drawn like that on purpose. A large part of this lineup started out stylized and sort of cartoony, and furthermore, this project is almost three years old now, so my art has evolved a lot in that time. This is evident in characters that appear better drawn, because they were just drawn later. This applies to Paris, Fabritzia, Aria, Lucy and Dorothy, Jericho and Thanatos were both redesigned so they got new pictures.
As for “unnamed pin dancer” that was actually a tumblr error because I did include a caption, but it never showed up on the website, and for some reason I lost the ability to edit the photoset. Her name is Vasaya. I’m not sure what picture you’re talking about I copied her pose from, because I actually originally copied her pose (and subsequently feminized it) from a picture I drew of her four years ago, back when she was originally a male character, before I turned her female. It’s likely I took some inspiration from various dancing or fighting poses, but I didn’t actually trace her? I’d be happy to prove this by supplying her pencil drawing, that might not prove that I didn’t trace her but tracing on paper is a lot more difficult than tracing on the computer.
I’m not sure if you’re the resident alien anatomy expert or what, but I’m going to sort of ignore this part. I’ll lengthen his tail somewhat to account for balance if you think it’s a problem but given that he is an alien, and is fictional, then being the creator of the species I pretty much have precedence when I say he stands. Bumblebees shouldn’t be able to fly according to physics, so that rule also applies here. And it’s not as if he’s exactly graceful. He’s lumbering and awkward, just like someone of his size and relative anatomy would be. Also, I did actually think about his pants, because I realized just as quickly as you did the first time that it didn’t look feasible.
Given his military history, he was once a very important person, and he had specially crafted armor. But, like most people who wear clothes under their armor, he was actually sewn into a pair of pants and a shirt. This wouldn’t have happened if he wasn’t important enough to earn it. And that at some point will be mentioned in the book, to ease the confusion of readers. (It’s also up in the air that his pants velcro up the side like tear-away trousers but that’s not solid yet)
I did take inspiration for Fabritzia’s pose, but as I said before, I drew her only a month ago whereas I drew some of these people two or three years ago. So there’s an evident change in art style there.
Moving onto Sawyer, I’ll reiterate that these guys were originally stylized. I’ve never had a lot of experience with cartoony styles, I’ve always been closer to semi-realism (seen in Fabritzia, and Paris) and granted the lineup for my characters for my book probably wasn’t a good place to start experimenting, but it is what it is. I already planned on going through and updating everyone whose designs are old, whose drawings are old, and who just need an update. A lot of their faces especially are a couple years old and need some serious updating, so that’s probably where the problem of her “drug expression” comes from.
I’m not sure what you mean by “attempt at diversity” because what has been accomplished here isn’t just an attempt, it’s a relatively diverse lineup, and that wasn’t an accident. I don’t know what your definition of diversity is? Maybe you just want a random sampling and if there’s a couple black people in it you call it diverse? But to create a truly diverse cast of characters it does take determination, foresight, and yes, a very strong attempt. Locke’s anatomy can be partially blamed on the fact that his drawing is a couple years old, and partially blamed on the fact that I was working mostly off of reference photos from the internet, which are not always perfect. I do recognize that he, along with a lot of others, need to be updated. And he will be. Flint applies too, I’ll be redrawing him.
Lionnel is not asian, in fact, he’s irish. Kind of boo on you there for mistaking squinty old people eyes for Asian. As for your comments on his age, he is actually 104 years old, so he pretty much is beginning to melt. Your comment on the environment is not completely wrong, it’s not radioactive but it’s also not good. It’s dusty and hot, everything is gross, the air is just barely breathable, there’s no water on the surface, no native plant life, it’s just not a very good place to live. The only reason Lionnel lived as long as he has is because he found a quiet, secluded place to build his home, and he rarely leaves.
In conclusion, I’ve spent a couple good solid years on this project. I’ve put my blood, sweat and tears into this. I’ve updated characters, added characters, scrapped characters entirely, I’ve built planets - galaxies - species both sentient and not. I’ve put endless research into the backgrounds of characters and how where they’re from will affect what they look like. Everybody has a history in this book and I’m proud of every one of them. No matter how rude you get or how awful your criticism is, this will remain the most important thing I’ve ever done. This is what I would spend the rest of my life doing if I could, and I plan to try. Maybe you don’t agree with that but lucky for you it’s not your life! So you can go on being rude to people and I can go on writing my book and we can never speak to eachother again, isn’t that neat.
Spiders eat their parents all the time and no one cares when they do it so what the fuck
did you eat your parents
How about you mind your own business
So.. Who said that cartoons today only have one/two dimensional characters?
I read somewhere that sirens/mermaids sang songs that they heard from sailors on passing ships. I imagine this is what a modern siren would sound like singing this song.
