hey everyone, it's been a hot minute, eh? 

so i've been working on my game here, but i decided to finish shading this shotgun idea i drew a while back.  i got some other art ive done, but those will come when they do. i figured since it's been a while, i should do a bunch of stuff. however, i wanna do more small scale stuff (like object and creature designs), since ive been feeling a bit intimidated by my art style recently

also, what do you think of this background being the template for displaying guns with? i also got an alternate display idea similar to the skyship display system i had (which reminds me, i should draw more of those), so i might upload that as an alt, i dunno. i'm just worried about size differences in the guns being all wonky since i now got a tangible world displaying system in here for these. but i mean i worked hard on this background so screw it, might as well upload this one at least.

---------------------------------

LOOK, I DREW A HUMAN! :'D and It's the best girl from Persona 5: Futaba Sakura! 

I drew her in my usual dieselpunk style, inspired by the 1910s - 1940s. the ship (necronomicon; her persona) was inspired by the kind of stuff you'd see from that era as well. the archways is in the same boat as well. I added them in because i thought it would look cool, not to mention it is really useful as a framing device for her head, knee, and foot. I have to say, though, they were AN ABSOLUTE PAIN TO DO. but everything worked out in the end, so i'm happy <3

side note: I NEVER draw humans. i'm always worried about making them in a way that triggers the uncanny valley effect, considering my art style. that and i just suck at them. though admittedly, this time it went REALLY well!

---------------------------------

LOOK, I DREW A HUMAN! 

So this was a sketch for my patrons on patreon. it is Futaba Sakura, from Persona 5, as an early 20th century flapper girl! :D This may look a little rough compared to what i normally make, and that's because i NEVER sketch for the sake of sketching, since my art style allows me to alleviate many of the errors i make by doing the colouring and shading. I'm not used to sketching stuff at all. as i do more of these, i'll get used to sketching, and eventually my patreon sketches will be super damn good on their own ^^; remember, there's a reason why i refuse to do sketches for commission work, and now you know why.

regardless, this was fun to do! I'm not used to drawing humans at all! :D

Here's my rendition of Weiss Schnee from RWBY ^^  I drew her as an arctic fox with a bit of a redesign in the clothing department. i think it's pretty cool looking, personally~

i gotta say, long hair is a nightmare for me to do, still >.>

anyway, as is with my usual designs, i was inspired by japanese RPGs and dieselpunk / early 20th century designs.

Dryad - Project: Diesel Pirate

---------------------------------------------

Dryads are a species of feral animal found in the upper midwestern and northeastern states of Sky City Miria. Standing at up to 2.4 meters (7.9 feet) tall at the shoulder, these antlered giants live in thick boreal / mixed forests, snacking on many types of aquatic and non-aquatic plants / fruit as its food source. Dryads are most recognizable by their thick hide and beautiful, glowing antlers. Dryad hide is often described as having the look and feel of tree bark, while the hide on their back is described as feeling more like a moss-covered crab shell. A dryad's antlers can grow to massive sizes, and has the intriguing property of emitting bioluminescent light. This light can be used to help light the immediate area at night, but also provides a dryad with an interesting means of self defense. When threatened, a dryad will let out a deep, bassy roar while flashing their horns with an incredibly bright light in an attempt to scare away predators. the roar has been described as sounding like an aggressive version of a foghorn, while the light flash is like a lighthouse light that is shining in all directions at once, near-blinding at the initial flash, then mellowing out over time as the shadows play off of the trees and the dryad's face to give the creature a perceived demonic look to it.

While Dryads are non-aggressive towards aetherans, they can be provoked or frightened to behave in such a way, as with many wild animals. dryads are responsible for plenty of attacks on aetherans due to the previously stated reasons, but usually with only minor consequences. Some dryads, who are used to being fed by aetherans, will be very angry if they see an aetheran and are denied food from them, leading to more attacks. They are unpredictable creatures who just want to live their lives, so it is best to admire them from a distance, and to never get into the habit of feeding any dryads that one may come across. Unfortunately, there is a different story for those that accidentally hit one while in a vehicle. due to their size, weight, and higher-up center of mass, vehicle accidents with dryads involve and entire front seat area, and those sitting in it, to be crushed, which is frequently fatal for those affected by it. 

dryads are hunted by aetherans for food. while their hide is inedible, and quite difficult to initially cut through, underneath it is tender, flavourful meat that is quite popular in areas where dryads populate. due to the size of a dryad, a single kill can fetch enough meat to last a very long time. Their antlers are among some of the most quintessential examples of a hunting trophy; a reward for felling a mighty beast. While the dryad has very few natural enemies, there is a particular species of sky whale that is known to prey on them, which is a rather frightening sight to behold

Caimguro (Gatoroo) - Project: Diesel Pirate

---------------------------------------------

The Mirian caimguro, sometimes colloquially referred to as a "gatoroo", is a species of feral reptile that is endemic to the southeastern states of Sky City Miria. Growing to an average height of 2.1 meters (6.9 feet), caimguros inhabit wetlands, and are opportunistic apex predators that consume whatever prey it can get. While on land, they move around by hopping, covering up to 9 meters (29.5 feet) of distance and 1-3 meters ( 3.2-9.8 feet) of height in one leap, with an attainable speed of up to 20-70 km/h (12-43 mph). While in water, they can swim up to 30 km/h (18.6 mph). They can often be found in groups of 2-4, while some of the more massive examples of the species have been witnessed to be living solitary lives. Females will build nests of sticks, vegetation, mud, and whatever else she can find, then lay her eggs there, staying on guard for a couple months until they hatch.

Caimguros are more than capable of killing aetherans. They can mistake an aetheran for their prey, especially when they are in cloudy waters, and their bites can cause serious injuries due to their strong jaws and tendency to wiggle and writhe when biting something large, causing further damage. Their bites can be fatal, even with medical treatment. On the other end of it, aetherans  living in the southeastern states view caimguro meat and eggs as a delicacy, adding them to all sorts of local cuisine. Gumbo in particular is a dish that greatly benefits from adding caimguro meat to the recipe. caimguro hide can be used to make all sorts of things, from handbags, belts, wallets, and shoes, to luggage and jewelry.

The colloquial name, gatoroo, which is a combination of alligator and kangaroo, is quite unpopular with reptile, particularly alligator, aetherans for rather obvious reasons. The Mirian south is known for the intense, deep-seeded racial discrimination aimed towards reptile aetherans. They, in turn, feel that colloquially naming caimguros after alligators feeds into the overall racial issues by directly associating alligators, and reptiles in general, with a dangerous, and feared, predator. Kangaroo aetherns, on the other hand, have no issues with it. Considering they are mammals, not reptiles, one could easily see why they wouldn't care as much about it as reptile aetherans in the area would.

so with my computer all up and ready, i figured id type out my new years resolution:

i just want to get more art done. this past year has been awful for productivity for me. from the drastic shift in my art style and art process to be much more realistic, to the myriad of problems with my computer crashing on me and being underpowered, everything led to me being overwhelmed by my own art and what it is i had to do to make that art.

i love making art, but the worst part for me is the very beginning of it; having to plan out everything and being freaked out by how much work i'm gonna have to do. there are plenty of things i wanna draw, but i absolutely wont, because it's SO MUCH WORK to do this shit! because my style is so realistic, small mistakes can have major consequences (the uncanny valley is the reason i don't like drawing humans). and all of this comes before the actual process of sketching something out. because of my art process, i can only go back so far before it's so much of a pain that it's not worth it, so i have to get everything perfect before moving on. this sucks. this actually friggin sucks.

the sketches and quality-related stuff are elevated over time as i get better, but i don't get enough art done to make that improvement come at a fast enough pace.

I want to draw what i want to draw. i love doing commission work, and i personalize them a lot to really bring out the fun factor in them and always motivate me to do my best (such as turning the bulk of them into concept art for my dieselpunk world), but so SO often i just want to do fun, SMALL-SCALE pictures and concepts just for me. a ship, a creature, an object, a landscape where i dont have to worry about characters or extra bullshit or anything. i can't ever get to them because i am not getting enough art done at a fast enough pace to get through my commission work. this is NOT to be taken as me wanting to rush my commission work. there have been so many issues causing that stuff to take forever to do, longer than it needs to be, and i am sick of it.

i still have to get another set of RAM for my computer for the upgrade to be truly complete, but the new parts i have right now are enough to motivate me again, not to mention the much better CPU and motherboard are gonna help quite a few things out on my end. the issues with my old computer are dissolving, and i am exited to do more art on this new computer! once i find another new set of ram, then i wont have to worry about my computer being underpowered and lagging to hell and back every time i draw something lol.

so yeah, my goal this year is to get much more art done at a much faster pace, and get more art FOR ME done. the new computer and mindset will help me with this, so i just hope the new year goes well for me

and of course, i just want to thank all my patrons on patreon who donate to me every month. i'm not quite at my first goal yet, but the amount i am getting from you guys is helping A LOT right now! I was so worried about money this last while, but you guys have been helping me out greatly! a 50 percent reduction in stress helps an artist a lot in trying times of computer bullshit lol. so yeah, thank you every one of you <3

happy new years everyone! I'm excited to show you all what i, as an artist, can make!

and if you guys are interested in supporting me so i can get more fun art stuff done, check out my patreon!

An artist who works very hard such as you....you have great sense of originality and my favorite style that you do is Dieselpunk/Cyberpunk it reminds me of the old classic times (ex. 70s and 80s) don't know why but it does. You inspire me to become an artist which I am improving in the process as we speak, but no this isn't about me it is about you. I could look at your artwork for hours and be fascinated with it and it inspires me to well do Cyberpunk/Dieselpunk style artwork. I never heard of it before you were the first I ever saw that had this type of artwork. Do what you love if that is drawing awesome I'm sure it is....just well as be happy for what you do because if you do not a moment in your time will you feel like it is a chore or "work" if that makes sense.

From one Dieselpunk/Cyberpunk fan to another: great gallery! I LOVE your cyberpunk designs - they're classic and creative at the same time - and your dieselpunk characters are great! Plus, normally, I don't much like photo-manips but you do an excellent job with the filters so that the backgrounds match very well with your original art; it's really impressive to see :D
