Alynnya - Urk not a think ork.

Published:

As a thank you for the very warm welcome I've received since rediscovering my account, here's a pic of new girl Alynnya in a little bit o' peril. I'm working up to doing colours again with my new software and I think this first shaded piece looks pretty reasonable.

Some of you may be wondering "why Alynnya and not Claire / Leena / Aki?" and the answer to that is I'm really enjoying this new character because she's made up of the original trio. She's heroic and virtuous like Claire, kicks arse like Leena (although she's a sword and shield girl instead of plasma cannon) and has a fun side from Aki. 


Massive thank you to everybody who's been commenting, favouriting and generally being awesome.

I think they should eat her.....

Honestly, you're the first person to say that. I've had quite a few notes asking for a very different scenario. Personally, I think dancing would be a fun way to go. Maybe orks are really good dancers?

ahah nice!
I'm glad you're back at this
I like this new character too
CallMePlisskin's avatar
Cheers mate. It's good to be back and nice to know you like Alynnya :)

Great job! Your art is looking better than ever :)
CallMePlisskin's avatar
Cheers mate, much appreciated :)
geekling's avatar
Welcome! Happy to see new art from u :)

There's more to come soon! I've got a new Merc Diaries sketched out (super rough, but getting the layout right takes a bit of thought) with some additions based on the feedback I've been getting from people wondering about Claire and Aki's fates.

I'm also very tempted to do a mini-comic based on this pic, but I've got no idea when I'd have the time to draw it. Fingers crossed that my Patreon will take off a bit and I can reduce my supermarket hours and use the time for drawing :)
geekling's avatar
Awesome man! Can't wait to see it! I'd love to do a comic like you too but I don't have the discipline to stick to it.

I'm sure if you started accepting commission work, you'd get more extra income. I've managed to live off of commissions... but then, I DO live in a third world country :D
CallMePlisskin's avatar
Cheers mate :)

I'm tempted to do commissions again, but I don't want to let people down by making them wait too long. My shifts are all over the place. I keep getting stitched up and having to cover for people who don't show up. Things should calm down when the students are back so I'll rethink the matter then.
geekling's avatar
Ahh.. well the way I do it is I only request money from the commissioner when i can actually start on their project. I figured the wait is more tolerable for them if they didn't have to give money before hand. Eases up on my conscience too cuz I also feel guilty if I make them wait too long :D
CallMePlisskin's avatar
That's a good way to deal with it. I think I'm going to stay away from taking commissions for the time being to keep all this stuff light, fun and free of pressure. Thanks for the advice :)

Very nice! I remember you from way back! I was influenced, and wanting to do a space mercenary type idea just recently, and then see you posting again coincidentally!
CallMePlisskin's avatar
I remember you too, mate. I'm always up for seeing or reading sexy space merc work so I'll keep an eye out for that in case you post anything:)
LouisTarado's avatar
Thanks, I intend to try, but do want to get a bunch of work posted. Welcome back, glad to see you remember me! 
CallMePlisskin's avatar
Time is a hard thing to find, especially when real life decides to get inconvenient.

Every time I see an old skool watcher / commenter / favouriter in my notifications it makes me smile and brings back all those memories of staying up through the night chatting and collaborating on ideas :)
LouisTarado's avatar
OK, so Leena and Claire was who I was thinking of, and 'Myrna' vs 'Leena', I can see the leap there. I even was visualizing Myrna with the same kind of coloring, with black hair at least. 
CallMePlisskin's avatar
Sounds like a really interesting project. I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops and I'm both honoured and flattered that my ideas were a small part of the inspiration for your work :) Made my day, mate!
LouisTarado's avatar
I was motivated enough, and liked the concept I had, so made something happen at least, to welcome you back.  louistarado.deviantart.com/art…
I don't have scan ability at home, and am taking a few days visiting my dad, so was able to scan, but no photo manipulation suite here. I didn't review your old gallery, just went by memories, and so may have even taken the first name of one of your characters subconsciously, but was intending to make up my own lore that was highly inspired by some of the stuff you used to submit. 
CallMePlisskin's avatar
Wow. Simply wow. I'm lacking the words to properly express how that makes me feel, mate. I love the thought that something I did inspired you! Amazing!

Anyway, enough of me gushing. Use whatever you like, names, places, any of that, if it helps you to make stuff. I'm totally cool with that! If you wanted to set your work in that fictional universe then please be my guest. If you'd like to do that, then I'm happy to answer any questions and help out where and when I can. I'm going to go check out that pic right now! :) :) :)
LouisTarado's avatar
Thanks, glad to get feedback from you on this one! 

 I wouldn't want to build up false expectations though, even though this is one of the scenarios kicking around in my head for some time now, I don't always follow up that well. I do fully intend on cleaning up and coloring this one and making a more entailed story. I have had this kind of theme kicking around a long time from mostly back in the days when I'd occasionally buy a Heavy Metal magazine for something to look at out on the range, plus TV and movies. Your stuff got me rethinking it, especially with the featured damsel scenarios in the central theme! 
CallMePlisskin's avatar
I hope you do get the time to develop the idea further. I'll certainly be checking it out :)

She's got a super-cute expression here, trying to keep mind on task. :)
CallMePlisskin's avatar
Cheers mate. I wanted to get across her shock about the possibility of being eaten or worse - ork "dancing" :)
