Some (transparent) splintered Striders, for splinteredstriders. Because everything on their list is awesome, and because there just ain’t enough Davesprite, Brobot and Lil Hal floating around at the moment.
So I was scrawling some quick ‘I-earned-a-rest-so-lets-make-some-Striders’ Hal doodles yesterday evening - ya know, style experimenting, and seeing how I felt about the fanon Hal design since I’d never really drawn that version of him before, and I dunno what happened here, but …have a….a much older….beefier…Hal? I guess? What? Look, I don’t control the hand. It draws what it wants. The brain and the hand are not interconnected. Man, I am going to regret posting this…
Tag was accurate. Reblogging here after all, because peoples tags on him have significantly eased my embarrassment! But yes, in the whole colour-doodle session, I couldn’t bring myself to colour his face any ‘human’ tone a single time. Like, I just can’t seem to reconcile it. As soon as I give him human skintone and blond hair, he starts looking like Dirk in a wetsuit to me. Looks like I’ll never be able to draw 100% fanon Hal - sorry! I will however, be drawing a certain AU Hal soon.
I was feeling a smidgen under the weather weekend. To remedy it, I doodled an array of Striders… And one Roxy. And the Roxy sort of accidentally turned into a full picture. Oops. I needed to draw her anyway, since I’m thinking of trying to make the dress in time for Birmingham Comicon.
Thanks for the warm re-welcome, folks <3 Have a… slightly weird-looking, albeit happy, John who has just opened his first bunny box.
Damn, what happened to my art style? And perspective <_<;; Don’t worry John, I’m sure you’ll grow into that nose. But anyway, I had fun!
Good gravy, I haven’t changed one bit have I *facepalms*! I literally spent the entire day sending two messages on tumblr - Holey moley I’m so terrible at people! What are words and how do feelings?
Anywho, it’s been a while, but I’m back. You have no idea how much I missed being here, and I am such a colossal idiot for holding out this long!
I may have…. kinda forgotten what all this ‘drawing’ business is all about, so please bear with me while I get my bearings and pull myself out of this lost year. Thanks to all of you who’ve stuck around (yikes!) and sorry to my friends and followers for just rudely disappearing on you without a word. I can’t pack enough apologies into this post for letting you down, and being such an inconsiderate jerk!
Blimey, our team made it to the final stage again! This nsfw illustrated fic (read it here!) is our entry for the third round of HSWC, and if you passionately hate hot smut, Stridercest, and really good characterization, this isn’t the fic for you! (You know you want to read it! Come over to the Orange Side!). Final Stage voting is open [here] so if you think team Davesprite<3Dirk has earned your vote, you know what to do~
EDIT: Now that the round is over, I can say who did what. The actual story itself is by nuclearcarrots! Wow, who knew she could write, right?! She also did the third and fith illos. The first two animations are by Sleii, the fourth illo is mine, and in the end Catharsis bagged 5th place for that round!
A couple of fills I did for HSWC bonus rounds that seem vaaaaguely upd8 relevant so I figured I’d upload them today. The Dave<3Jade one is for Princesspooop’s FST prompt.
Guys! Our team’s entry in the HSWC 2nd round made third place! Woohoo high fives and huzzahs all round! I’m chuffed as heck with what our team came up with for the prompt! You might even say it’s … delicious *wriggles eyebrows*. So if you like Dirk <3 Davesprite fics/art, or want to try some Strider themed recipes [check it out HERE!] The fic and tastey recipies were the work of Ceph, with the header art above by Hoska, background and the Davesprite illos by Sleii, and some general chipping in from around the team to boot.
[Fullview] A rather last minute illustration I did for Ryn’s Dirk x Daveprite fic ‘Propaganda’ in the HSWC Round 1. How do you draw the light reflections for red glowing electricity on a semi-ghostly body which is already glowing orange? Who knows! *Spams red and orange everywhere* yep, that ought to do it!
Drawn for this prompt in the HSWC bonus round. The fact that the female pharaoh has horns and fins and is accompanied by a glowing vampire might be enough to suggest this isn’t very historically accurate, but phooey to that! It was fun!
"Bounce that ass it’s the roundest / You the best you deserve a crown bitch / Right on that / Ass ass ass ass ass / Ass ass ass ass ass / Ass ass ass ass ass / Stop / Now make that mother fucker hammer time"

(It’s Big Sean ft Nicki Minaj, but I’m quoting the prompt as it appears).(Fullview and prompt here) Another HSWC prompt filled, this time for Dirk<3Jake. I’m very embarrassed, so I’ll just…post this and…go…now. <_<;;;;;
'Dogs never bite me - just humans'. - Marilyn Monroe
Another prompt for the HSWC! I was thinking about those cute pictures that occasionally crop up on my dash of kittiens curled up on doggies =3
Don’t look too hard at the anatomy details (Like…literally, I couldn’t figure out how they’re fingers would intertwine, and my boyfriend wasn’t around to get him to pose soooooo Nepeta doesn’t get a little finger this time, okay? Shh!)
fullview ‘Tsk, David. If you would just mind your manners in the first place, it would not have come to this. It was the impatient manner in which you wolfed down your food that landed you in this predicament.’
For this Br1 prompt in the hswc. I’m sorry - how du dialogue? Also, sidenote! Fathertime never really interested me until brodingershat wrote Gentlemanly Pursuits, which has nothing to do with this comic, but if your curious about daddave you should read it.
*edit* Woah, wait! Colour me embarrassed! I didn’t even know what ‘stuffing’ was, sorry, no I didn’t mean to imply that. I just meant word play! But you’re welcomed to interpret it that way if it’s your thing. Sorry! I’ll tag it right away.
Things are about to get reaaalll shippy, real fast up in here, so if you don’t like random shippiness (Ha, who doesn’t?) then you can tumblr savior #hswc. Up next: fathertime
Fullview. So I drew Rose in LOLAR as part of a LOFAM thing I’m still working on.
And now. I am. Utterly. Sick. Of pink (for now).
