And the final week of the August Newt drawings.
Newt in Gravity Falls and Secret of Kells styles (or, well, an attempt at).
Newt as one of the alien races from an original story I’m working on.
driftandhivemind reached a bit of a follower milestone and I wanted to do something. This will be a poster that I’ll giveaway.
I really liked the kiss meme going around, but I’m really terrible at keeping up on memes, so I just decided to do a few on my own. But, you know, for monster people. Kisses on horns.
Kisses on tails.
Bluh bluh body horror Newt.
Wow, more Otachi tongue/flower/eye stuff.
And again. I’m sensing a theme here.

agentotter replied to your link “Alien Art Things”

I’d really love to know how things go for you there. A lot of people seem to be moving lately. I think a lot of my sales come from Etsy search though so the prospect is kinda terrifying. :D

We shall see! I wasn’t making very many sales anyway, so switching wasn’t a huge deal. Literally the only reason was that you don’t need a Storenvy account to make purchases, unlike Etsy where you need an Etsy account.

All my listings are still in my Etsy dashboard, so at least it’s easy to set it back up just in case!

And another week of Newts. Next month will be one of my own characters. At least with this month, I know I can actually make this “draw every day” thing work.
Keter is a lie.
Random Newt clothes.
Couldn’t draw that day, so drew some Newt butts. And Newt with a tail just kind of showed up.
K-Sci nerd kisses.
Baby kaiju take up a lot of bed space.
Newt and baby Little Wing.
Hygiene is very important, even for kaiju. And if Archimedes needs something done, it’s a good excuse for Newt to hang out with her and Hermann.

This page is a lot cuter when read with the last page. Still working on trying to keep these guys consistent. Moderate success.

white-throated-packrat said: wait, Hermann came up with the idea of making kaiju, as a way to keep Newt occupied?

Not really, but he ends up supporting it because listless Newt is fairly sad to see. Hopefully the bit on the next page will clarify this. There’s a bunch of info as I go along that I keep slapping my forehead over because I’m not getting it shown correctly. I downloaded Scrivener to test out and see if I could straighten out all these noodly loops of info and story in my head.

Apologies, I might be pretty quiet for the next month. I have commissions to do and Rose City Comicon to try and make new things for. And this damned monstrosity to finish (I started this thing OVER A YEAR AGO and it’s nowhere near done).
Things that’ll still happen:
Bunday
driftandhivemind
Also, more Patreon stuff should be on it’s way soon. I have some ideas, but I haven’t been able to implement them yet.
ALSO also, it’s POSSIBLE there could be a preorder up for the Otachi scarf soon. I’d give it a week or two.
I dunno, I just feel really bad when I’m not posting consistently. I’m still here, I’m still around, but I need to try and pull myself away and finish up some outstanding things.

rubicon-art:

This is a present for alienfirst, for her drift and hivemind character, Archimedes. I adore Archimedes’ design and have tried to draw her so so many times before, without luck, so I’m… kinda stunned that this came out so well. I haven’t had any urge to draw lately and decided to try something new … and this happened. So uh… HOPE YOU LIKE IT.

Alienfirst is AMAZING and deserves ALL OF YOUR FOLLOWS. 

(Also please fullview it.)

As for why she’s holding a fish? … I have no idea. O_o

Archimedes! Totally unexpected Archimedes art in my dash not drawn by me? BEST. And I am in such a mood for anything having to do with her right now, so there is such a dumb grin on my face, you have no idea. Thank you so so much!

I really really wanted to get two pages done because the next page is I think better to be read immediately with this one. But, I had looked at how much of my weekend had been sunk in to getting this one done and I had to just deal with one. Sorry. T_T
Four more pages and that’ll be the end of this set up bit. Ooof. Maybe we will see Little Wing before Christmas.

Kaiju

Dang. Beautiful follow up to beautiful art. I am a happy little artist over here today. Your imagery just never fails to impress me and inspire. Each one of the written things I’ve gotten from you needs me to do art for ‘em. SOME DAY. SOME DAY I WILL DO JUST THAT.

The kaiju is fully inside your head now, every thought overlaid with sickening wrong-blue and heavy with the taste of oil and blood on your tongue. You swallow, an attempt to make your mouth taste of anything else but it just comes back stronger, sliding into corners and seeping down your throat until it feels like your insides and organs are varnished with oil and blood and the smell of snow and salt and steel and wrong-blue. You want to hate it, you want to hate it so badly but the kaiju in your head won’t let you – instead, all you can muster is fear.

A Kaiju Newt for my half of a long overdue trade with Alienfirst. I wanted to do something with tongue/flower imagery.

BLAIR. This is AMAZING. Thought you totally can’t be overdue when the other person has yet to get their part done. *_*
Augh, your stroke and colorwork is just stunning. I need to get this shit printed out and stuck on my wall. I am swooning so hard right now. :O
