a vampire from "the Strain", the amazing book by Guillermo Del Toro... the amazing AND creepy book that is giving me nightmares but DAMN I love it. and I have too much fun while drawing blood, way too much.
A little while back, we'd finished all four campaigns in Left4Dead (and I'd completed all on Advanced setting). For want of something new to do, I said, "Why don't we try Dead Air (our most recent campaign) on Expert?"
Admittedly, we weren't faring too well - on Expert you take up to four times as much damage as on Advanced - but we were still holding up. Until a horde hit us in one of the apartments, that is. One minute I heard the warning music come on... the next, my screen turned black and white, the words WRAITH KILLED FARLANDER ominously appeared, and, amid the chaos, I heard WraithTen blurt out over the headset, "I'm sorry! I'm sorry! I'm sorry!..."
That wasn't the only time she'd put a hole through me, by the way.
I'd been threatening WraithTen with this for ages now, but she's always laughed it off as one of those things I'm always drawing but never finish. Well! if that wasn't motivation to complete this, I don't know what is.
Zoey is WraithTen. Louis is me. Left4Dead is the property of Valve. I think.
I have recently gotten interested in Death Note... and I was wondering.... what if Sirius got one? He'd try to kill many people with all of that hatred in his heart. he might even go a little too far... oops...
This is a plushie version of myself as Red Riding Hood. She's on her way to gramma's house, blissfully unaware of the werewolf following her trail.
Red is made of veloure (hair and body) and stands about 11 inches tall. Her cape is made of velvet and lined with cotton. She has suede shoes, cotton apron, skirt, bloomers and shirt with ribbon trim. This is my first standing plushie. The werewolf mesures about 17 inches from ear to claw. He is made of short pile and medium pile faux fur. Paws and inner ears are made of veloure and claws are made of wool felt. Clothing pattern for red and character design for Red and werewolf (c) Danay Wilson. Human based pattern (c) BabyLondonStar. Thank you for looking!!
Just some happy little crossover fanart of Arthur Dent and Thursday Next. And her little dodo too.
Okay, time for the typical behind-the-scenes chatter:
Thursday is wearing the same jacket and pants she was wearing in my first drawing or her, but thank goodness she doesn't look as ugly as she does in that drawing (I wouldn't recommend looking at it, by the way. Looking directly at her face could turn you to stone). Pickwick doesn't look as good as she did in the first drawing, however...I didn't have any dodo references on hand.
The thing Thursday is holding in her right hand is an Entropiscope, a jar full of rice and lentils that is very handy for determining when entropy is starting to drop, consequently opening the door for all manner of improbable (and potentially fatal) events.
Arthur is also as tall as he was originally described in the radio series - 6'0, unlike the movie version of him. I was a little amused to hear that the movie version of Arthur was only 5'8 -- that's shorter than I am!
