The girl with the shock of white hair checks her watch again...
PERELIA QUINN fidgets, waiting for her mark. Capella Block’s residents rush around her, snaking between stacks of garbage and freestanding utility pylons. Craning her neck she can see the wide mouth of the West vehicle entrance. A single-carry takes the corner too fast, it’s rimless wheels chirping across the pavement. It slams to a stop in front of a noodle-shop, and the driver tumbles out into the street. Pretending to yawn, PERELIA raises a wired microphone to her lips, concealed neatly in her palm.
He’s back. He’s had more to drink.
You don’t say? How’s that poor bastard even standing?
The man in the street turns sharply and tumbles over his own feet. Falling to his knees he lets out a viscous curse before lurching upright again.
He’s not, really. What do you want me to do?
Sober him up. The quick way.
I drew this late last year and am only now getting around to coloring it. I labored over what to do with the gizmo behind him; I’m still thinking about going in and fleshing out the details of that structure a bit more. Right now it sort of looks like it has googly-eyes. Why the near-monotone green? It was St. Patrick’s Day. Graphite sketch with Adobe Photoshop colors ~ 200 minutes
I need some new pens. These are getting a bit rough to deal with ~ 50 minutes
Hey there muscly arms ~ 40 minutes
Decided to follow through and actually color this one. Graphite and Photoshop ~ 200 minutes
Just some hands. ~ 40 minutes
There’s a certain angle that makes it difficult for me to not make ears look Elfin. So… I ran with it. ~ 100 minutes
Hah! I found this in an older sketchpad today – this must be from around 2008. I really like the direction it was headed in, and don’t have any idea why I didn’t work on it a bit more. The idea was that the woman had escaped from a horde of elderly zombies, and still had their dentures clinging to her clothing. Also she has adult braces (click the image for a closer look), which sorta tied into the whole dentures thing… ~ 50 minutes
I typically stick to line art, but am slowly trying to branch out and find ways to draw in a more painterly fashion, if that makes any sense. Subject-wise, I drew most of this while re-watching a few of the Harry Potter films, so drawing a naked cauldron lady was an obvious choice. ~ 180 minutes
I really don’t like this one. I don’t think the drawing itself is particularly awful, but that hair? And the sweatband thing? Terrible fashion sense. ~ 75 minutes
