An experimentation on light and gray tones. Or I just wanted to draw a bored Dib, and Zim just appeared on the pic, munching on his hair-lekku. Yeah, I totally see Zim as a personal space invader. He'd be all "I'm bored, entertain me, Dib-beast!"
Lineart with pen-and-paper, colors with Photoshop.
All Invader Zim related wonderful goodness are belong to Jhonen Vasquez, who'd kill me personally if he saw what I do with his characters. Heh, take a number.
Pff, I wanted to do something cute with Dib's (incredibly large) head on Zim's lap, but I think I've been reading too much angsty fanfiction lately, for here's the result. Well, a large part of ZADR fics contain either murder, suicide, self-mutilation, a good lot of whining, rape, deadly diseases, depression or are songfics with anything by Evanescence. Yay, happiness.
Anyway, I kinda like the dramatic coloring, I wanted to use as little as possible. Pen, paper, Photoshop, do I really need to say it?
...and before you ask, I have no idea if Dib is dead. That's for you to decide.
Holy Irk this took me FOREVER to do. The lineart is rather old, from my "early days" drawing ZADR, that's why Zim and Dib are slightly changed. Lookit! I managed to draw Dib's frontal view! Do you know how HARD it is?!? Damn you, Dib's hair!
You have no idea how insanely proud I am. I won't hide it, there are some mistakes that make me cringe, but I noticed them too late in the coloring process to be able to correct them easily. Shading was very fun to do, as well as the clothing. I hate drawing the trench coat, though.
Hey, sis! Here's your Armada! ^_-
When I was doodling this on paper, I had Dib and Zim drawn, and you know how much I hate doing backgrounds. So on the blank paper I just scribbled ARMADA where the background should have been. warned me I was going to hate myself afterwards, and had no shame in laughing at me when came the time of drawing said Armada. For those who wonder, I used a screen shot of the big battle in the episode "Dib's wonderful life of doom", taken from Badbadrubberpiggy, and redrew the lines and everything.
As for the storyline behind this... I wrote nothing because I didn't want to hide the image and because I never decided what exactly was happening. My favorite guess is this:
2nd panel, Zim: The game is over, Dib. What are you going to do now?
3rd panel, Dib: ...Take me with you...
But I don't like it enough to put it. If you have better ideas, feel free to suggest! And if it inspires you to write a fic, go ahead! I'd be glad to read it!
This was done the traditional way, scanned, the lineart was redrawn on Photoshop, coloring too, all this with a lot of cursing and procrastinating.
Invader Zim is property of Jhonen Vasquez, but the picture is mine. I mean it, I spent too much time on this to see it stolen without my permission. You want to make a wallpaper, a avatar or something along those lines? Ask before, please.
my first time drawing zadr ever. or IZ in general, for that matter. totally new style to me as well.
BUT HOLY SHIT WAS IT EVER FUN.
omg XD. I might just stick to this from now on. extremely long and thin limbs = epic drawing fun tiemz. I thought this was going to be so hard for me, (especially their heads) but it wasn't hard at all
oh but yeah, I'm on a completely random zadr kick. I highly expect this to be my last fanart of them, but maybe not since I had soooooooosososo much fun with it lol.
AND YES THEY'RE FLOATING DDDDDD: I was so excited to color this that I scanned it in before drawing the freaking couch, and zim's house as the background. soooo yeah :<
okay, so I started this about a week ago when we had our first snow of the season. I was SO excited that I wanted to draw something winter themed with zim and dib, since i'm so into them right now X333
plus, I thought it would be an EPIC adorable idea for Zim's first winter on earth with Dib making sure he's bundled up properly before going outside
it took so long because I redid it a whole bunch of times. first I decided I wanted to color it traditionally, so I spent all day doing lineart, and coloring them, but one I started coloring the background, it looked like CRAAAAP. so, I decide to start over with new lineart, make it really bold, and color it digitally.
overally, I'm reeeeaaaaally happy with how this ended up, especially since this is my first time drawing them in their original style (since I was like, ten years old at least XD), AND A BACKGROUND, OH M'GOD. lol yes, I actually LIKE this background. I know there could be more shading maybe, but I wanted to keep it simple. the only thing I DON'T like about this, is how much zim and dib look like a cardboard standup DDD: I messed with the shading quite a bit, but I still think the bold lineart was the death of it lol. ohhh well. oh, and Dib's arms are waaaaaay too long D:
oh, and I randomly wanted Zim's hat to have crazy patterns? I copied them from a hat I found a picture of on photobucket. I thought it would be annoying to do, but it ended up turning out really cute
Inspired by an rp with teh Kitteh. Long of the short Zim put Dib through argumentative hell, Dib angsted about it only to find out Zim wasn't as tuff as he said he was. The poor Irk had his grief but wasn't one to go about whinning and bitching but kept it quiet so he wouldn't have to think about it. All hooked up to the wirings Zim, unbeknown to the boy that they're necesary for him to live, lets Dib have a cling, and the scythe lock gets a nibble. (The scythe lock always gets love X3)
Otherwise read into the pic as you like it.
I tried a more Zimeh style and had more grief with the colouring than I'd like. But I love the lineart, if only for Dib and his coat.
Drew this while talking to Kitteh about the ending of Rilzit. When and if they do conquor (big when and if >D ) I could see Zim being incredibly bored.. Irken have short enough attention spans and like to keep busy and entertained. So, what does he do? He pokes his Dib slave. And Dib on the other hand, whose in eternal bliss now that things are all good, just wants to snuggle on Zim's lap for the rest of his natural life.
*laugh* Of course Zim just won't have that >D He likes conflict too much.
To Dev: Merry Christmas, Chika. x3 I hope you like your preasent. X3 It was very awesome meeting you, you know. What, with just hanging around on Gaia and everybody talking about you and how much of an awesome writer you are... and then I got to roleplay with you, I felt honoured. Then we had an awesome first RP together, and I think I confused you some with the insanity.. lol! XD And you asked me my opinion on a fic about Dib forcing Zim to marry him.. and said you wanted to roleplay it out and then write it as a fic, but we got carry away and it BECAME a fic-- Oh yeah. That was awesome. xD
We've had lots of fun together, or atleast I have. Not only have I made a great RP partner, I've made a great friend. :> Damn, that sounded a LOT less corny in my head. Well then, here's this pic. xD Why? Because I think it's your favorite scene from More or Less and I wanted to draw it anyway, and let's face it- WE KICKED ASS WHEN WE WROTE THAT SCENE! HECK YES! Did you cry? I'm not sure if I did- but we ROCKED!!! Heck yes. Heck yes, heck yes, heck yes.
Anyway, thank you for putting up with me. :> I know I can be pretty annoying at times, and we've spent no telling HOW many hours roleplaying... but it was all awesome and all worth it, so Merry Christmas, Dev. :>
To everybody else: This is from a scene from More or Less, and it hasnt been posted yet.. but just so you know, it's coming up. The background sucks, I know, and I'm sorry for that. >_O I cant do bgs, it seems. ... Uhhh, yeah. Neo helped me with this with her awesome cretiquing skills, but I still think I wonked up parts of it.. xD;; Oi... Anyway! LONG OVERDO ZADR PIC!
...(c) to me. More or Less (c) to Dev and me. Invader Zim (c) to Nickelodeon. For
A cropping of the full porn pic, which will go up on my y!gallery soon... Jenn's hotass semedib has killed me and now Im all drawing zimuke. OH THE SEX. and I'm usually hardcore Zimseme.
The lyrics are from Shame - Stabbing Westward and again, I'm concerned with giving away spoilers again. oh well, if anything the porns should make you wanna read it, which you should want to do anyway.
After doing the title image for Fuck Pig I really liked the style, so I started on my little scribble-color kick I've been on recently. I actually started this before the Enerjak image and just chipped away at it for awhile until it started looking the way I wanted it.
I did this sketch almost two years ago, maybe longer. But I still like it and had the original laying around so it became a candidate.
Someone needs to help me get my tablet working so my scribbley mouse coloring phase will end XD;;
I didn't like this one so much at first, but when I started shading it I fell in love Yes.
I wanted to do a nice, finished image of them but I am so SICK of color right now. I just don't feel like coloring anything XD;; But I really like the greyscale effect here. Still getting used to using tones naturally, so hopefully I didn't go too overboard XD;; I know his hair is kinda "whoo!" but I LOVE that tone for hair. XD;;
This is a slightly different take on Zim and Dib's first encounter in his bedroom, in my fic. I didn't make it exact because 1) I wanted to draw Dib's sexy-ass trenchcoat (he's wearing simple bedclothesish stuff in the fic), and 2) I plan on actually doing real illustrations for each chapter so I can upload them to SheezYart. (God bless AFF.net, but it's just too unreliable and frustrating ._.)
Tones can be found on the various pages linked from here.
Cheeky comments will be summarily laughed at and ignored. Seriously people, I've heard it all before. If you don't like it, don't look at it. I put up enough fucking warnings.
PS. Today's my brithdae! I'm 22. I know none of you give a shit, but dammit I feel special today
This is a remake of [link] to celebrate the fact that I've finally, after years, made it to this point in the story. It's still in the drafting stage, but I should have it up by next Tuesday. Until then, enjoy the art!
The walls are grimy-splotchy as an homaaaage to the show. Also, I have been listening to the commentary far too much lately.
And once again I shall post the lyrics that inspired this picture, and partly inspired Tuesday Means UFOs itself.
Another Sunday I Mother Earth
Sunday... Always hard to get to sleep when Weird noises are implying threats On cold sheets I sweat On any other day It's all rest and flowers And a long night of nothing In the morning some coffee 'Cause when the sun goes Down you close your eyes and think That you might wake in the same place
I'm out of my head That was what they said There was no way I would Ever trust again There's something that fills you up And it feels you up and then It takes control of your better sense There ain't no control of things You take for granted But they came and they Held me up and they felt me up And left...I miss them
Take me to your world I want to know if I belong There instead of here Is there religion? It is unordinary To want this affection But I don't have a real friend And I hate my whole family But from my bed, my window's Lit by a red light I have seen before, while floating away.
finally some zadr again! this's a scene from the current chapter of the IZ/JTHM fic -- yes, I'm still working on it. all sloooow-like.
anyway, zim's dragged dib into the art storage room for some kind of a confrontation. sounds like a porn setup, but really isn't. dib's smooching zim to prevent the END OF THE WORRRRRLD! no really, he is. it's totally all business between these two. yup.
first time drawing zim in his wig and contacts. I prefer alien!zim -- love them antennae -- but the disguise was tragically in the scene, so I had to draw it. oh woe.
also my first time colouring with watercolour pencils. I must say they made a good case for themselves, but they're going to be even MORE conspicious than markers in class. maybe I'll just stick my brush in a waterbottle or something.
My answer to a friend's question of 'WHY?' is this: I did it for the lulz.
(And also for the *Z-A-D-R 'Tallest Dib' contest - maybe THIS time I actually managed to submit it at the last minute, instead of just AFTER the last minute.)
Probably tons of proportion wonkiness, but OH WELL. 8D
This is probably the most suggestive thing I've ever posted EVER. It still doesn't really call for a mature warning or anything, though. I fail at porn. XD (Don't really want to win at porn, though, so it's all good.)
I WAS working on a doodle to knock out both Halloween AND this contest, where Dib was just dressed as a Tallest, and Zim was laughing derisively while mock-saluting, but I never got around to finishing it.
I only barely 'finished' this, and it's painstakingly obvious. Originally I'd planned to do the whole background in flat colors, similar to my Strange Park Visitor piece, 'cept with outlines, but that got overturned when...well, I was exceedingly lazy and only just got around to working on this...um...two days ago. 8D; I'm amazed I even finished the detailed coloring in that time - really, I am. Especially since I did a lot of experimenting, mmhmm.
I WILL eventually rework the background, though. Just...not now. For the moment, I'm sick of looking at this thing. And also my hand is about to fall off. :]
...Though I must say, I love the way Zim came out, and I'm especially proud of how his butt looks. XD;
...Well, technically it's part of something bigger I'm working on (I WON'T SAY WHAT, AHAHA), but I liked it on its own, too. So here we are. Yay for ZADR smoochies or something. I dunno. (I TOLD you all I was working on some kinda ZADR pics - I freakin' TOLD you a million times!)
I DREW IT COMPLETELY WITH MY CRAPPY MOUSE 8D
I like trenchcoat-less Dib for some reason. That blue~ *squee* I forgot to give him his glasses but didn't want to go back and add them in because then I'd have to change around some other parts and that's too much of a hassle for me at this moment and holy crap this is a really long sentence and I can't get out of it cuz I feel the need to make a really impromptu reference to something I bet hardly anyone will get HO HUM and this is where I'm going to end this sentence kay thanks.
I have a Christmas song stuck in my head for some reason. ...It's weird. ...And catchy. [/random comment]
Anyone aside from Tim n' Emi who can guess what this is part of will get fifty points. And maybe a gold star. ...MAYBE.
Zim n' Dib are the property of that one awesome skinny comic-writer guy who would probably stab me in the eyeballs with a brain-freezie if he ever met me. Yeah, that's right. With a brain-freezie. He's that awesome.
I'ma definitely going to finish this; fixing up mistakes, inking, coloring, and the like. Just a simple, badly-scanned pencil drawing doesn't do the fic any justice. >_o That, and this is probably the most detailed background I've ever done. And I'm proud of it, dammit. O__o;
Dib's room = teh <3
NOTE: No, I will not put a mature content rating on this. Really, it doesn't need it. No reproductive organs are showing. AT ALL. But if you're squeamish and still can't handle it, I advise you to run screaming now. If it's just the ZADR you can't handle...why the CRAP are you looking at this thing in the first place?! O_o
