Fandom/Universe: The Sims 2 (for Left Our Love)
Character(s): Don, Nina

I just want to know which one to go with... )

a/n: Um, so I decided to doodle up a cover for Left Our Love. [ profile] showercapfrog mentioned about drawing out scenes, but I don't really think I'd want to take the time to do it, but I sort of got an idea of HOW I would draw things out if I decided to. Lots of sketchy, messy lines and grayscale and limited color schemes. So cover art!

The emphasis is actually on Nina, which is kind of okay and kind of not, but whatever. I was originally going to draw all the girls, but I thought it'd get too heavy and planning the composition would be a bitch and Nina's the girl who holds the most importance, so I'm cool with it.

So which version do you like? The only difference is that the second one's rockin' a little gaussian blur. I kind of like the fuzziness of the second one and kind of hate it. I'll probably end up going with my gut even if popular opinion decides on the opposite version, but I'd love any input.

Oh and the sketchy style of this is VERY heavily inspired by This Kingdom Hearts fancomic.

So we bottled and shelved all our regrets - let them ferment and came back to our senses. Drove back home and slept a few days. Woke up and laughed at how stupid we used to be. )

a/n: It's good to be back. However, it is late now, so I'll have to wait to get caught up some time tomorrow. Classes start again tomorrow too. Boooooo.

Lick those lips! )


3. "the beginning"
5. "no hero in her skies"
6. "please believe me if i say"
7. "steal her away / self books, love cooks"
8. "One Red Shoe"
12. "summer skin"

Also, I'm totally dancing around on the Beau/Franny side of things these days, but I wanted to see if this one technique worked on the sims pics and I had that cap available so that's why there's one random Tank/Frances icon. XD

ETA: Okay, this is going to probably sound really random to most of you, but do you guys know what Fausnaughts are? Without looking them up that is.

Because I TOTALLY just realized that it must be a PA Dutch thing. D: But still - HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW WHAT FAUSNAUGHTS ARE?

Little bit weaker than you used to be. )

notes: Helga in my own sort of style and looking purty and older and a fun Phi drawing? Ugh, I know they are not very interesting. :(

I drew you guys something now give me love. I'm like seriously stressed out about the stupidest thing right now and I'm making myself sick and it's so dumb and argh. Seriously, gimme crazy comments, half-assed fic, silly pictures of your toes - ANYTHING. I just want to stop being a miserable grump.

There’s a bird that nests inside you, sleeping underneath your skin. When you open up your wings to speak I wish you’d let me in. )

a/n: LOTS OF PICS! My notebooks for class are definitely heavier on drawings than they are filled with actual notes. I-I'm a bad student. :(

Oh well.

EDIT: Uh, also I'm sorry about the icky quality of these pics. I think photobucket ate them a little? :(

Bang bang, shoot 'em up, shoot 'em up, yeah... )

a/n: I-I finished it! Sorry for the RIDICULOUS wait. After I had to go through that whole miserable day of finding the picture when it got deleted my interest in the pic sort of died out. I was afraid I'd fuck it up big time and lose it for good and just... ick. It was rough. But I SWORE to myself that I would get this finished sometime this weekend and HUZZAH! I did!

It's currently 1440x900 pixels because that's my screen size, but if someone wants one that'll fit their screen perfectly just ask me and I'll make one up. Also, I wanted to put words at the bottom like subtitles to a movie, but wasn't sure what I wanted it to say.

Oh and the whole reason I did this picture is because of Cobra Starships "The City is at War". I was listening to it and then drew Johnny there holding his shovel and started filling in a hideous Phi beside him dressed kind of like a mobster and it just evolved from that idea. Also I made a short playlist to listen to while I worked on this picture! The songs on it were both loud and peppy, and soft and ANGSTY. I don't know why.

I still believe in summer days. The seasons always change and life will find a way. )

a/n: This was so random. I heard this song earlier today and went on to find it on youtube and the next thing I know, I'm drawing THIS.

Ripp and Phi missing their Johnny. They worry about him all the time and wish he'd come home.

"This is my winter song to you.
The storm is coming soon
It rolls in from the sea.

My love a beacon in the night.
My words will be your light
To carry you to me."

EDIT: Hey, when you click the lj-cut can you see the actual picture or is it all a slivery line? I can see it all pretty-like on me mac, but it's icky on my friends laptop. I can fix it a little bit later if it's all small and stuff.

3. Name their fandom.
4. Supply photos for said people.

She could change everything about her using colors bold and bright, but all the colors mix together - to grey. )

notes: It's image heavy, but OMG MY OTP/3s!!!!!!! It was fun to go back and revisit all of my old fandoms and really pick out, which ships have meant the most to me. Also, I took the fanart without permission, but everything is credited and clicking each picture takes you to the owner's DA account. Anything that doesn't have text saying who made it underneath is either a) a screenshot from the actual game/show/etc or b) made by me.

Also, I tried to do pairings from various fandoms. I managed except for the two KH ones, but you could say that Squall/Yuffie is actually a Final Fantasy Crossover...kind of. In any case, I've been influenced by both (Squffie moreso than RiSoKai) and it didn't feel right excluding one or the other. :\

But, I just like to dream - it's so strange the way our paths have crossed - how we were brought together... )

Notes: Lol, you said: "Frances and... Dina Caliente? IDC." and I rolled with it. Except I couldn't get the two of them to be cuddly in their adult forms, so you get wee!Doctor Frances putting a bandaid on wee!Dina's cut.

The background is sucky, but that's how I roll.

I saved it! *Dances*

It's not exactly where I left off (boooooo), but it's closeish! I'm still missing some flat colors and all the shading I did to Franny is gone, but I'm just so happy that it EXISTS!

To celebrate I bring you: Naked Strangetown Boys that are anatomically correct! (... for sims that is) And some bonus sketches of Johnny (with cameos from Ripp, Phi and Tank's sexy bod).

Take It Back To The Place Where You Know That It All Began. We Can Be Anything We Wanna Be! You Can Tell By The Noise That The Boys Are Back Again! )

a/n: ignore Tank's fugged up face (that always happens). Also Buck's bod is way tilty.

I basically drew the first one just to play around with male anatomy because I suck at it. Like, I can make my girls all different shapes and sizes, but my dudes tend to come out sort of similar or get stuck in three main body types and I want to get past that.

Um in the second one, it's supposed to be Ripp's body at the upper left. And Tank's the other headless dude in the upper middle area. The rest of the boys are Johnny, plus that little Ripp at the bottom middle. And then there are two Ophelias to the far right.

Fandom/Universe: The Sims 2/[ profile] strange_tomato
Character(s): Johnny Smith!

I can't choose, so confused! What's it all mean? I want my own dream. So bad I'm gonna scream! )

a/n: I-I can explain! Kind of. Maybe.

Okay, so I've basically been listening to/watching Zefron's Scream! all day. Because I'm insane. Also because I'm a total HSM dweeb - they are nonsensical! And have many colors! And RYAN'S ROCKETTES! AND LOTS OF INAPPROPRIATE THRUSTING! Seriously, these movies are golden. And I have such a dorky crush on Zeffers - I'm absolutely IN LOVE with his arms (i-i have a hand/arm kink LEAVE ME ALONE) and his HIPS! And he has the most adorably distinctive walk (which you can see HERE! - just look at him defy physics and gravity with every step he takes!)

And then I was like: NEED TO DRAW SCREAM! JOHNNY BECAUSE OMG HE IS MY FAVORITE BOY CHARACTER EVER AND THIS SONG REMINDS ME OF HIM BECAUSE I AM A NUT JOB. It's just the whole... search for himself? And his future? And how he's all lost and stuff.... And like, the lyrics to this song are totally juvenile, but I don't even care. The vid I linked to has the worst quality, but I can still make out the best parts! When Zef pounds on the lockers and then throws himself against them in time to the beat? A-and near the end when he pulls off all those stripper moves with the ropes? Those moments just go right through me. GOOD GOD SO HOT.

So I drew Johnny emo and screaming and then just some more random anatomy things, because Zef makes me wanna draw boys and that like NEVER HAPPENS.

also i can't be the only one with a crush on johnny, right? reluctant heroes ftw!

EDIT: Also right around 0:32 in A Night to Remember Zef does this thing with his hips and flicks his head to the side all dramatic and lady-like and just - OMG BOY WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME?

So yeah, apparently I'm doing a running theme of 'how many different ways can SHWC characters die without really being dead?'. Don used sex to fill up a hole inside of him, Tank went through his life without really living it, Jill dies on the inside when Buck dies for real.

a/n: This was actually supposed to be a Frances/Tank...thing. But it uh.... didn't really go there? Except it did a little? But that isn't the overall point? :\

Also, pictures are for chumps. Lol.

This Tank is basically S,HWC's Tank, but also not really? Like, it could be maybe, but maybe not at all. I don't know, I have a hard time breaking Strange's Tank down. But it's definitely a Tank that went through the same storylines that her Tank did, but the outcomes and personalities of this Tank might be quite a bit different. This Tank is very... muted. It's that whole 'walking through life without being alive' thing that I like to explore. I especially like when these 'dead' characters finally realize what it means to 'live'. Tank doesn't really get one of those moments though. :C
stillthekey: ([ter] from what's left you'd figure out)
You know what sucks?

Starting a really fucking awesome picture and knowing that you won't really be able to do anything with it until Monday at the earliest!


But really, you guys - this is gonna be the most badass picture I've ever done. All of the other pictures I've ever made will weep pussy tears when they get a peek at this shit. I even have to fucking research GUNS and GRENADES because this picture is just that badass. Oh, and it's SHWC fanart, so that's always cool too.

But I'm going home this weekend and my tablet won't be with me and WOE! I mean, not too much woe, because I'm going home and I haven't been back in Lebtown for like... ever. End of August, I think? Fucking college being fucking far away. But I'm super excited! I get to see Bear and Favorite Whale! We are going to go watch High School Musical 3 because we are hardcore like that! And I get to go peek in KB Toys and tell them that 'Imma be back for Christmas break soon so hire me back you assholes!'

Yet, I still mourn the loss of time that I could be working on this badass picture. Also, almost everyone in it is either shirtless or in some sort of tight fitting outfit so you might also all cream your pants when it's done. Hottest, most badass shit ever.

But, uhhhhh, don't expect it for awhile, because this is gonna be ten thousand times harder to do than the last group picture. So like... it'll probably be a weekish or more if my inspiration dies partway through. :\

Anyway, this totally isn't supposed to be a journal-journal, so to get back on track I shall post an art!

Johnny is channeling my annoyance at not being able to work on this picture until Monday... )

EDIT: Also, I got bored and didn't feel like sleeping so...uhhhh here:

smug smug2

Ain't he a smug little bastard?

Geh, I wish I had some actual sort of animation software. All I can do is make GIFs in photoshop and I can't change the length of time between frames at all with that. Pooey.
stillthekey: ([shwc] to you i will always return)
NOTE: I've been debating about actually posting this. I actually always feel really awkward about posting art/fiction for Strange's story, because like... she's real, a tangible person that I can have e-conversations with and that's a little frightening on some level. I worry about stepping on toes, especially lately because people have been commenting more here. Not that it takes away from her story, but like... I'm worried that it's going to seem like I'm trying to take the story from her or that maybe I'm pushing too hard for things I want (like Johnny/Ripp stuff). And like, that's really NOT my intention at all when I draw stuff for SHWC. I don't want the story to turn out the exact way I think it should and I don't want her to push characters to places they wouldn't otherwise go to please a fan or fans or anything like that.

And now I feel stupid, because I sound sort of bigheaded - as if my opinion and constant chatter is affecting the plot and the characters. Urgh, I don't THINK I'm swaying the plot, but I mean, I also don't want to add that pressure, y'know? Um.... yeah.

So today I wrote up a sizeable chunk of text about Johnny and why I love him and what he means to Ripp and Phi respectively. And like, this is MY interpretation of him. It may not be the correct one! Parts of it may be close to the real Johnny, but others might be off the mark! And you can agree/disagree with me if you want or just ignore this whole thing all together (probably the best option XD).

REMEMBER - this is all fan speculation! I have no more knowledge of the trio's future than anyone else! This is just me laying out some thoughts and whether or not they're anywhere near the truth is yet to be seen!

So then - JOHNNY!

It makes sense that it should feel just this way that you slowly fade and yet still remain - as if to say: 'Everything matters in such an invisible way' - as if to say: 'It's okay. Fly...away' )
