Similar Deviations
Sometimes while listening to music, I will orchestrate the air. Not so much like a conductor of a symphony (though similar), it is more like that scene in Fantasia where Mickey orchestrates the sea with magics. I summon the notes from the air around me.

Hence "Airchestral."

This isn't the final image, but after seeing a similar line art treatment done by another artist on FA, I just had to try my hand at it. I do agree that it's much better than black lines on a blank white background.

I was inspired to do this last night while listening to old .MODs I hadn't heard since the early 90's, which have somehow survived numerous hard drive wipes, new computer migrations, crashes, failures, bad sectors, OS upgrades, and possibly a dunk in a river. They are quite possibly the oldest files I have on my computer - some dating back to 1989 (although that's probably due to someone messing with their clock).

You remember .MODs? They were awesome. Way better than MIDIs.

I've been seeing lots of crickets around lately. They are one of the few insects that don't give me the creeps and I thought, "Why are there no cricket superheroes?" Probably because the cricket can't do anything much on the cool side. Doesn't climb walls, shoot webs etc. But MAN can those little things JUMP! This guy, The Cricketeer, can jump like a mile when he really has to. He has slightly tougher skin than most humans. About as tough as plywood maybe. Seemed like the right toughness to be in proportion to a carapace. He can also tell what the weather is going to do before it happens...hm, there's his alter ego right there. TV weatherman! I don't know if thats a real ability of the insect but there are rumors about it. And he can produce a loud chirping noise that can stun bad guys. Or annoy coworkers. Whichever is needed. Although, if he did it around his coworkers it would defeat the whole secret identity thing so scratch that. Oh yeah, he can communicate with real crickets.

Not an epic hero but a fun one.

Original piece of art this is based off of - [link] by :iconblueberserker:
He and I were working together at the beginning of this project, and the character was redesigned during that process. So, that's why they don't quite match up, proportionally.

This is kind of the first step of the final stages to finish this model. Depending on how far BlueBerserker would like me to take it, ultimately, Greezer would be colored and have two different arms, similar to the original concept.

This lumberjack is a bear. Maybe he sometimes works with Smokey to make firebreaks, but mainly he is just trying to earn his pay like anyone, so he can afford decent housing and fish on the table.
There are two photos which were used heavily for reference, one is #sb10069056c-001 on Getty, and one is [link] which was also used for texture. For texture I also used [link] and [link]

In France, when we are talking about the American President, that's how we are imagining him as an anthropomorphic animal : a strong and hulk eagle with a lot of power and many responsibilities, a man who have the entire world's destiny in his hands, someone adulated by the people.
I tried to draw the scene when the President have just learnt about a terrible new, something that could make a mess of the peace all over the world!
What decision will he take? Will he be able to keep the world's peacefulness stability?
Hope you like it! please leave a comment!

EDIT - Fixed the background to a much lighter one, to make Layla stand out more.

*PolychromaticDragon inspired me, ok? :I

Well I've been artblocked as hell lately. The whole style change is killing me. But after doodling a quick derp and seeing Shichi's work, I was inspired to try and make something that wasn't a derp as well.
It's difficult to break out of the block, but I think it's starting to fade? I dunno.

But I like how this came out owo

I always see Layla in Glory City. I think I should put her family in there too since I can't seem to be able to write the whole fanfiction anymore. If she was to be in that city, I can imagine her working in the Lights as either a break dance teacher, or a famous dancer.

Image that I used for the Sheba card. Made a bunch changes to it... hopefully for the better.
Most of my friends think she wouldn't survive the next two creatures... heh
