I felt inspired today when I looked through =fighter-jet 's gallery. I loved how he/she (sorry, I don't know) used grains and textures and stuff on some of his/her drawing, plus the gray/sepia ish tones. I just wanted to try something similar.. ^^;

I might have overdone it though :B


The quote is from the song "Nutshell" by Alice In Chains. I wanted to use the "people cry because they've been strong for too long" thingy, but it just felt too cheesy..
But the quote from Nutshell was just perfect, in my opinion. It fits so much to the situation Spike is in when this scene takes place.


derp.

I was gonna save this until St. Patrick's Day, but I'd probably end up forgetting about it, so I'm just gonna upload it now instead... :dummy:

finally done with this one! :faint:
I've did the sketch yesterday, and did the lineart and coloring on Livestream today. Spent almost 4 hours on Livestream! Plus the two hours to make the sketch, so all in all, this is the most time consuming drawing I've made in ages! :XD:
But it was fun, and I hope all the time and effort was worth it ^^;

I hope you like this :aww:

this idea came from someone on one of my Livestream sessions last year. I decided to finish it, because I thought it was such a cute idea :aww:
So this is Saunders and Terrance, playing with mentos and diet coke.

Spike, sitting alone in the woods when a tiny bird appears. He looks at the bird with great envy, wishing he also had wings and the ability to just fly away from everything... Fly away from all the pain.





and, well, I'm kinda proud of this, because omfg I made a background! :B :la:

so, um, yeah, I hope you guys like this :aww:

The quote is by Flyleaf, from the song "There for you", which was the song that inspired this particular drawing. :meow:
Listen to the song here --> [link] (this youtube video was the one with the best audio quality).


The quote is supposed to be something that Spike thinks.
Or at least something very similar.
He's starting to realize he hasn't been a very good friend to Sam, and that hurts..



psst... anyone recognize the piece of paper he's holding? ;)





I decided to upload this in it's sketchy version. I could've put a lot of effort in making it look better, but somehow I feel this version is sort of clearer in its meaning, and that the rough feel sort of fits it.
What do you think? o.o

Ray and Mercedes, talking about Ray's anxiety problem.
Poor guy struggles with anxiety due to things that happened in his childhood, and is terrified of being alone or being abandoned.
SPOILERS AHEAD:
when Spike starts dating Mercedes' roommate, Lillith, Ray is afraid that he'll lose Spike as a friend since Spike is spending more time with Lillith.
All this worrying causes him to have many anxiety attacks when he's left alone. He decides to talk to Mercedes (who he feels is sort of like a big sister to him) and get some advice on what to do.

so that's briefly what this drawing is about. I could tell more, to let it make more sense and have a lot more depth to it, but I'd just spoil things.... :c
it'll make more sense when the novel is done :)

The girl to the left is Erin, who was Saunders' childhood best friend and crush.. :aww:

I just felt like drawing them together (Although they look a tad older than they're supposed to be ^^; )

I made this some days ago, using watercolors (there's a small walkthrough in my scraps gallery), but due to a sudden lack of internet connection, I wasn't able to upload it until now.
So, yesh; Ray and Spike, being exaggeratedly badass in front of what is supposed to look like a Dodge Viper.. I have hardly ever drawn cars, and I haven't drawn much graffiti text at all either, and on top of that I'm very new/fresh at working with perspective AND this is my third drawing using watercolors, so this whole drawing was a bit of a challenge for me... But it was a fun drawing/painting to work on nevertheless :)
I edited the colors in photoshop to make it look more warm, as the original colors were too cold-looking. Other than that, this is 100% traditional work. :D


so, um... yeah, I hope you guys like this :aww:

I really do suck at titles :P
but anyways... I drew this today. It was gonna be a speedpaint, but the program I used wouldn't let me record for more than 10 minutes, to that was crap... :| Instead, I finished it on livestream. Ended up fiddling too much with the colors, but I hope I managed to make it look somewhat good after all ^^;

---EDIT---

I uploaded another version of this with warm colors:
