(Instant Ramen Sketchbook) Snowscheme ’09 Part 5: Seasonal Docking

Sunday, December 13th, 2009

Fan service.
Who wants some?

…apparently Denlan does!

(WIP) They aren’t exactly rocks or hard places…

Monday, December 7th, 2009

Quite obviously influenced by a similar piece involving Flonne and Etna in the Disgaea 1 artbook. However, unlike those two, Hikaru and Haruko aren’t even remotely flat-chested…

Numair, not amused?
Maybe not…
If he wasn’t amused, well, he probably wouldn’t have taken off the antlers, for one thing. Just saying.

Feel free to pile on in the 2009 Snowscheme queue if you are so inclined (and if you’re in Across or are a friend of the guild, you should be registered there ANYWAY). Much of what’s in there… would be more appropriate as we get closer to Christmas Eve. One thing’s for sure, though– there WILL be a Phil/Paring-related piece on the 17th. Call it weird but I can’t stand the thought of letting father’s birthday slide into oblivion even if he’s no longer here…

46F my ass, Fontana. It feels like 30 in here!
Good for Blastoise and Iggy, not so much for me! I can pile on the cloaks and such but it’s moot when it’s time to draw. I need to get some fingerless gloves or something…
A Varia Suit is fine too…

(Instant Ramen Sketchbook) Double Feature!

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

As promised, a Ramen double-hitter.

First up, the sequel to May’s Pundit Brawl, Pundit Kart!
Because, you know, I’m a naughty liberal and worse still, there’s nothing like solving political and pundit-related conflicts with VIDEO GAMES.
Once again, Team MSNBC (represented by Rachel Maddow) takes on Team Fox News (represented by Gretchen Carlson). I want that Rubber Duckie Couch so badly. The real funny, of course, is in the onlookers.

I think I turned David Shuster into Charlie Brown… which is more amusing than it really should be. Yeah, you eat that popcorn, Shu-bot! :P

This was a little late in being publicly posted on regular Ayarane Project; for the time being, political art goes on dA and the two political comms I frequent first. I have also elected not to post WIPs of those here as a courtesy to some of my more conservative peers, since it seems like I’d just be rocking the boat more than necessary. Still, ramen is ramen, and these pieces are really more about the silliness of people in large groups.

Speaking of which…

Elves are NOT Watermelons.
Seriously, they aren’t. Of course, Haruko = too drunk to tell the difference. (Or is she?)

Numair, against his better judgement, let Chelsea and Velan bury him in sand for lulz. (Probably, Velan baited him with cookies.) This, of course, is a ginormous trap in the form of a boozed-up blindfolded Haruko wielding a stick. And poor Hikaru, even on vacation she is still having to be the sole responsible adult in a guild full of crazy people. (You would think the likes of Deeum and Nemesis would be, too, but they booze it up like the rest of ’em. Rineas is too much of an assmunch to care, and Old Lady Kit may LOOK normal but she’s just as bad as Velan in terms of “doing it for the lulz.” :P)

Yoshi + cat = distraction

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

So I’m trying to finish Elves are Not Watermelons and Kestine jumps on my desk all “YOU WILL PET ME RIGHT NOW OR I WILL NEVER STOP PACING AROUND AND I WILL BE CUTE IN ORDER TO MAKE YOU WANT TO PET ME, MEOW MEOW MEOW.” And because I am that much of a sucker, I comply.

…repeat about, oh, five times in the past 3 hours. @_@

Yes, kitty, I love you, but I also have this pic to finish because I said I’d have it done tonight and I’d look like a flake if I didn’t.

As a bit of a teaser, and because I neglected to do so earlier, I’ll post the WIP phase of the line art phase:

If I can finish coloring this punk (sand, damn you, SAND!) before conking out for the night… good! Otherwise… I think it’ll be worth the wait.

(Instant Ramen Sketchbook) Sleepover: Clean Yet Ob-Steamed

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

Hi, fan service. To be on the safe side, despite everyone involved being featureless, assume this is NSFW on account of boobies. (Also I cannot draw bath sponges worth anything, even though I had one next to me.)
Hikaru’s seem a bit… I don’t know, I can’t put my finger on it, beyond that they might look the way they do because of being crammed into that Maximillian plate armor for long periods of time, I suppose. *shrug* Gotta let ’em out to breathe sometime…

That said… as expected, the water ended up being the better part of the paint job here. Water is not easy to paint, you can’t simply just flood blue, squiggle in some white wavy lines and have it look anything near convincing. At the same time, water is not entirely transparent either, as even bath water has some degree of opacity. This is a much simplified rendering– if I wanted to push it further, you’d see some hints of fleshtones from underneath, but here, just a murky shadow contour will do.

There IS steam here, but it’s quite faint. I debated adding more, but it might have been too much. Hm. This is still early into the bath scene, so steam could add up as it goes on.

While I figure out what part of the Sleepover narrative to draw next, I’ll be drawing updated Avatar forms for Blastoise and Dinah, as well as the future Avatar Yggdrasil (“Iggy”), the Media Center box that will be built upon the release of Windows 7. Blastoise is getting a weapon change from 2h sword to a spear, Dinah’s getting twin blades, and because Iggy is a newcomer… well, I’ll just say that I’ll likely base him on FuSoYa with a bit of Phil, so he’ll most likely get a staff of some sort.

WTF, Fontana. 102F?!
It’s a good thing mother’s all “screw the electric bill, run the AC!” or else we’d be melting. Though I imagine she’s doing this more for LOL BULLDOGS. :P

also… FELLOW NAUGHTY LIBERALS! Rejoice for tomorrow, MSNBC finally gets an HD feed!
If Time Warner is still as omgfast about patching in new channels, I’ll probably have it same day. (No, really… last time new HD channels were released, we pretty much got ’em same day as they were advertised for release.)
