something I've been working on this evening. Spent a good few hours on this :B But I kinda like how it came out :)

This drawing is showing some of Spike's fears. That skull-thingy at the top there symbolizes death, and then there's his abusive uncle whom I suppose most of you will recognize by now, and at the bottom there's Spike and some hands grabbing him which is supposed to symbolize his fear of being touched. I wanted to add more things, but I just couldn't decide, plus there really wasn't much room left XD

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 ^^;

I uploaded another version of this with warm colors:

Felt like drawing Saunders with wings again ;)
I could've worked more on this, but.... meh... I kinda just wanted to get it over with, the coloring part I mean. I'm way more happy with how the lineart turned out, so I'll upload that after I've posted this one.
But still, I'm a little happy with this too :)

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

a sketch I did this week, one night when I just felt inspired to draw. This drawing was actually inspired by the song "Zombie" by The Pretty Reckless, a song that my little sister showed me. :)


The whole "chin up, soldier," is something Spike gets told in my story at some point. It means that things can't stay bad forever, because every cloud has its silver lining, you know? And the addition of the word 'soldier' is just to emphasize that Spike is a strong person who's been fighting this battle for so long..
I dunno just how to explain it, that little sentence, and I'm not sure it needs much explanation either..?
I dunno :B


So, myeah.. I'm sorry about the grainy-ness in this.. I used my cellphone as a scanner since I didn't bring one with me this week... :P
But I think it sort of adds to the whole rough feel I wanted in this... c:

Another new character :) Her name is Michelle, aka Mischa. She's a French Bulldog girl, and a very optimistic one. Tends to appear a bit hyperactive at times ;) but she's a very kind girl.
I'm just starting to get to know this character, as I've pretty much just created her. Or, I have worked a bit on her design before, but today I decided I wanted to use her as a character. She'll be starring in the same story as Jason, Seth, Artie, Zee and Carmen. She's not a main character though. But she'll appear now and then. I'm working on a single page comic of her now, but I don't know when that one will be done :p

Sorry for not telling you more about her. I'll do that later when I know more myself ;)

But I hope you like her :3

Sam just got a message from someone on my Tumblr, and as I read it I just had to illustrate how I imagined Sam's reaction to that message to be.

Here's the Tumblr post including the message and this drawing: ozoozou.tumblr.com/post/581788…

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 suck at titles...
So, the idea for this was that Spike wants to get rid of his black wings, wishing for white ones instead, so he's ripping out the black feathers which somehow turns his wings white.
Logic.
:B


It seemed like a good idea at the time, but now I'm not sure XD
I actually liked the sketch far more than the finished result.. I'll upload the sketch to my scraps and link it here soon.

I've done something I think I've hardly ever done: an art collab! It was =Delta141 's idea, both the collab idea and what the drawing should be about. I just did the line art ;p and he colored it, and I must say - he did an amazing job! :D I just love how the coloring looks!
The character on the left is his character, Ryder, whom I think some of you are familiar with :) He's comforting Spike here, being kind to him and telling him everything will be alright. In this drawing though, Ryder doesn't know exactly what Spike's going through. Had he known, I bet Charles would be in biiiiig trouble... ;)

Here's the link to =Delta141 's upload of this : fav.me/d6uuj44
Go show him some love! :D
