Hello! I haven't posted anything in a while, so have another thing. Believe it or not, I have been known to draw stuff with less than four legs. I don't have a place to post them though. Maybe I'll put something up here every now and then, if I'm going quiet like recently!
This is Titch. She's a character from a story I'm writing involving robots trying to coexist in a semi-futuristic human society. She's a persocom. (Who here has heard of 'Chobits'? make of it what you will - opinions do vary - mine is that the premise of human-analogue machines is undeniably interesting. There was room for more story in my humble opinion, at least in the anime.. It seemed to concentrate on Chii being adorable, but there was all this other awesome stuff that could have been explored.)
Since some of the other stuff I like to do includes the occasional spot of writing, and seeing as I had some ideas I couldn't put down, I'm putting them on digital paper. You can read the results here and feedback is much appreciated, if you have the time (it doesn't really have much to do with Chobits beyond borrowing from it for background details - if you've never read/watched Chobits you're fine, it stands alone - but I think it still qualifies for that site, seeing as it does draw upon the terminology and ideas). Fair warning: it will contain violence and some adult-themes, although I think it's not quiiiite enough for the M-rating, at least right now. Also, there might be a character name you recognise if you've been watching this account for a while. I insist there is no correlation, the names are just the same.
It's a nice outlet to write when making comics, as there really isn't a lot of room for dialogue there, and they take so bloody long to do as well. when I'm feeling productive but staring stupidly at blank canvas in Illustrator, I can do this instead. I've said before, it's tempting to do one for Websurfers, except it would interfere with the comic... At the very least, might spoil it, in a fashion? What do you reckon? And where the hell would I publish a Websurfers story, if I did? DA isn't very good for publishing text, I fear. The next comic is still a ways away.
