i have...recently created like. 5 new characters, and with them comes...updates??? i guess???? i knew knox did not stay married to lily after mia was born...but hadn't figured out what happened to lily afterwards - if, like trippie, she'd just be a single mom for a while - but even trippie doesn't stay single for long ????? ... IN COMES....THE SERVAL TRIPLETS. you will meet all of them soon!! but! the short explanation is - jasper was friends with this dude osander when he went to college in georgia. they possibly went into the military together????
osander has two sisters [in other words, the other two triplets] noramina and mirabelle, who moved up to illinois [where the main babes all live! ... because that's where i am and i am not that creative lmao] and inevitably...so did osander and jasper.
noramina becomes important as she, and aurelie [another character i have yet to introduce], both work with trippie. mirabelle................idk where she fits in yet, but!!!
OSANDER...ends up with lily!!
when mia's 12, they add to the family - a boy named liam!! liam is born with a birth defect called spina bifida [LOOK, I HAVE SPINA BIFIDA, AND HAVE WANTED TO ADD IN A CHARACTER WITH IT FOR SO LONG....but nothing...worked out until now.....], and cannot walk, among other stuff!
anyway, in this pic,,, daily life at the finnegan-gutierrez household, osander mowing the lawn, lily doing the dishes, potato...doing fish things, and MOST importantly...liam just caught a wooloo with mia's help >:3
[and in about 1 minute, mia gets yelled at for having liam on the arm of the couch again lmao]
anyway this is a lazy disjointed description but it's hot and i'm tired >:C
hi i never comment bc im trash but i had to bc ive noticed how you always put an astounding level of detail into the scenes u illustrate and it's absolutely wild??? ((thinkin abt this one too:
also u do lineart for it and i could actually cry thinking abt having to do it ((ignore how i used to line my cityscapes. thats why im crying. ik the pain))
anyway this looks rly good and it has lovely domestic vibes excellent work ;u;
aaaaaa do not even worry about it!! i am happy you wanted to comment at all!! ;;
thank you so much!! ;;; i feel like a lot of the detail comes from...not knowing......when to sTOP,, though a lot of the time, i am super tempted to just slap a photo on there and call it done lmao, but backgrounds and full scenes in general are something i've been trying to work on!!
[though one i am working on right now has....the characters on a path in the woods and even thinking about drawing like 5,000 trees makes me want to cry and maybe not....do that....but i know the end result is worth it!! just. why.]
also like. making it seem more...like. "natural"??? i guess???? instead of "here is a cat boy standing 3/4 view facing left with a transparent bg" so i am really happy to hear you noticed that !!
I KEEP MEANING to comment on your recent art too!! [scumbag adhd brain keeps trying fight me >:C] i've noticed you've gotten super good at conveying that "this is a an actual person in an actual setting, living and doing stuff" vibe
i have always!! thought your art was fantastic, but i noticed a lot of improvement with that lately!! [....i will actually comment specifically instead of flooding my own comments, oops]
which i have found is really hard to do right!
but thank you again!! ;;
i feel u tbh, its honestly a rly hard balance w interior scenes when it comes to detail?? bc if you leave it low then you risk making the image seem kinda empty or sterile rather than 'lived in' or making a house look like it was staged for a showing rather than occupied by actual people,,, but if you overcrowd it you have to start grappling w what ur conveying about your characters w the clutter/amount of clutter?? and you have to choose things to include...that fit their personalities??
its AWFUL i literally do NOT draw Anarchy's room bc it would look SO EMPTY...like my fallback for filling spaces is books, but....[gestures at my big fucken jock who only reached a like 6th or 7th grade education level at absolute best] ...He Doesn't Read Much...
literally don't get me started abt trying to personalize the detail of environments...i love my transparent bg catboys bc then i dont need to have an aneurysm about if im misrepresenting their dispositions by giving them the wrong type of trash can
....and yet ur mere mention of a forest background makes me love interiors so much more DEAR GOD GOOD LUCK
i used to do forests so much back in the day I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I DID. I WISH YOU ALL THE LUCK IN THE WORLD. COPY PASTE TREES AND BRANCHES WHERE YOU CAN ITS EFFICIENCY NOT CHEATING I PROMISE
also pls do NOT worry abt commenting like i welcome comments bc Ego Boosts are nice but just the compliment here on the improvement was such a nice gift !!! and i totally understand adhd brain fighting you!! im terrible abt responding to comments bc of the same thing so listen... we're cutting out the middle man. if you dont comment bc adhd brain, i wont fail to respond to your comments bc adhd brain (forehead tap picture) hdbdfjhfj
