( Totally forgot that I'd made a third Dragongirl Wrinry drawing which wasn't uploaded with the others! )
Having spent practically all her life as a dragon, Wrinry is not used to having people look down at her. The fact that her imperfect human form resembles a young girl does not help matters. While she is not usually very self-conscious, being treated like a little kid after a lifetime of being respected for her fearsome appearance does not sit well for the diminutive dragongirl. However, her disarming appearance does have the advantage of causing her enemies to underestimate her strength, despite the draconian appendages. The fake human body, while appearing soft, is nearly as resilient as her limbs.
Additionally, her small appearance belays her weight, which, while reduced, is still several times that of a normal girl. This leads to many issues involving property damage from sitting or standing on things not designed to take the weight of a small dragon.
This was a style experiment, as well as an excuse just to draw Kathrin really BIG. I had a lot of fun with it, and I hope to make more portraits of other characters in the future. If you notice that her fur seems more saturated than usual, it's because it is. Sometimes I think my characters are just a little too desaturated when it comes to their color schemes, so I'm trying to brighten them up just a smidgen to make them more eye-catching. I hope you find the final results appealing.
Wow, I made this way back in April of 2012, but unfortunately wasn't able to draw anything else as an incentive until recently, thanks to all the work from the Kickstarter campaign this year. But, better late than never.
Maddie Addie may be a trained Basitin soldier, but she is still a young girl, and like many young girls her age, she likes paying with dolls. Unfortunately, I don't think this particular doll is all that enthusiastic about being hugged to death.
It's the ginger white wolf herself! You know, I seriously questioned myself for quite a while on whether a red-headed white wolf could actually "work." The vision in my head looks good, but I had no idea until I actually got it on paper if the strange color scheme would fit, or look totally out of place. I've seen a few people argue that it is, but personally, I'm happy with her look. And in general, a lot of people have taken to her design as well. Of course, red hair doesn't really make sense, but eh... it's a comic, people don't have to take it so seriously all the time. I think her design is fun and I like it. I hope you do too.
I also really enjoyed drawing the birch trees and autumn setting for her introduction. I love fall as a season, even if it's a challenge sometimes to illustrate. It's just such a peaceful season, in my opinion, and I think it complements her character.
Oops, looks like someone forgot to tell Natani how Renamon dresses.
Heh, yeah yeah, Renamon is the biggest cliché ever. I know. I couldn't help myself, though. She's the only character I could think of that had a costume without anything covering the torso, so the joke would work. The white on her fur is paint, and part of the costume.
I figured I might as well upload these here while I'm at it, since it's publicly available over at the Kickstarter page anyway. For those who missed it, this is part of a series of comics I started doing during the Kickstarter campaign to entertain backers of the project. Unfortunately, I've only managed to get two comics done so far, but more are in the works. I think these pages are cute.
I decided over the weekend to work some fanart for one of my favorite webcomics, Freefall, due to recent events in the comic. This was the result. For those of you who do not read Freefall, I'd recommend you do! It's a long-running series (over 2000 pages spanning 13 years) and one of the principle inspirations for me as a comic artist. However, to give a little context:
Florence Ambrose is a member of a genetically engineered species known as a Bowman's Wolf. While entirely biological, her brain is designed with human safeguards in place, just as it is with synthetic AIs. One of these safeguards includes obeying direct orders from humans of authority. This becomes a problem when she is ordered to wear a french maid outfit [link] and an even bigger problem when she is later ordered to stop. [link]
If you would like to read the comic in its entirety, it can be found here: [link]
Florence Ambrose and Freefall are owned by Mark Stanley.
(And I am quite aware my version of Flo looks a lot like Natani in my style. I tried to avoid it, but in the end, they are both upright brown wolves with hair. )
I know the holidays are over, but I like to upload my holiday fillers here on Deviantart for posterity. So many colors on this page! Holiday comics have always been a fun excuse to go all out on tacky sweater designs, and I really went overboard this year. I may keep using the "magic mistletoe" idea as a running gag for future holidays. It certainly has some mischievous potential!
Lifts-Her-Tail doing what she does best... um... lifting her tail. Honestly, I think I was pretty conservative with this drawing. I certainly could have drawn her "lifting her tail" in quite a different way if I had really wanted to. But I hope you like it non-the-less.
