So I came across the gallery of ~Thomas-Photographie and saw some great photos. He's got a style that I really admire! I also couldn't help but notice a lot of the ladies in his photos gave me Hana vibes, so I sketched a few out in my sketch book and colored them in GIMP lol I hope he doesn't mind that I ref'd a bunch of his photos but if he does, I'll gladly remove this deviation at his request :D

His account is a month old so it would be cool if you checked out :iconthomas-photographie:'s gallery!

Artblock is gone. Now to blow through commissions!

Hana is currently my favorite character to draw. She's so chill.

alt title: "Rendezvous"

"That's It, That's All" by We Are The City
I've been obsessed with that song and listened to that and "Heroes" on repeat while drawing this. It just gives off the perfect mood.

Story behind this picture is that Hana and Honour (*tempurastick's character) have broken up. And after a few years, they decide they want to see each other again, the smoke flare being Hana's peculiar way of signaling her location. I guess meeting at the cafe for coffee is too mainstream for them?

Anyway, my prints, including this picture, are available on Society6 now. I'll be writing the journal for that in a moment.

The title doesn't really relate to the character or picture lol it's just the title for the song I was listening to while drawing Hana :D It's so hard coming up with titles for regular ol' drawings that aren't boring.

The Perfect Music for this picture.

Because of the results in this poll, I wanted to do a picture that "crowned" the winner. This was only supposed to be a small sketch for fun with Hana just adorning herself in the garments and such of her opponents but I decided to blow the pic up really big to do it real justice. Some body parts are pretty wonky here and there but I still really love how this turned out and I'm glad that so many people really enjoy Hana!

Someone on tumblr asked me if Hana smoked and I ended up sketching a picture for the answer. She used to smoke but now she only does it when she's downcast and feeling depressed because she associates the act with negative emotions and bad memories. It's an easy way to tell that there's something really wrong with her.

Also, I may start doing more drawings in this landscape format as a way to practice what style I want TΛB to be in. I like the quality of this picture but too much work was put into it so I may want to try simpler coloring methods.

~tempurastick requested that I draw Hana and of course I couldn't say no haha. The title is an inside joke (but you can find some bunnies drawn in the pic).

I hope everyone is enjoying the fall season so far. Autumn is my favorite with the leaves changing color and the weather cooling down!

More TΛB



I have never forgotten about my TΛB project! I’ll finish all my commissions after the convention next weekend but from now and afterwards, I would REALLY like to focus on TΛB.

Here I just busted out a couple of concept drawings for secondary characters that revolve around Hana. Hana’s character doesn’t drive the story much since her relation is simply with one of the three main protagonists but her character arc has some pretty big potential. I have a lot of ideas running through my head for her!

The guy doesn’t have a name yet but I think I want the girl on the right to be named “Babs” or “Barbie”; some nickname for Barbara. I hope their looks and clothing can tell you a bit about them because I’m not gonna go into any more depth on this post so feel free to speculate :)

Timelapse vid on YouTube



I want to get comfortable recording myself while drawing so I can do more timelapse vids of me working and eventually get around to doing video tutorials! People always want to know how I work in GIMP, so it's about time I start showing. Go ahead and subscribe to my YouTube to stay up to date!
