Bleh, I hate that I got bored with this. It just wasn’t coming out as I’d hoped. Stupid fat ugly Boogle. Having one of those “I hate my art” days, I guess. I like how the Oogles were coming out, though! I like to imagine them as little creatures that can form their optic nerves into male/female or animal bodies, even just 8 spidery legs or one long tendril they can slug around on.
Just some works in progress I found in an old folder.
The halfway-inked Boogle was going to be her new ref, and she was coming out -exactly- as I imagined her. A more doll-like face, bigger eyes & lips, hair dragging the ground, and curvy bjd body. <3
The painting was going to be a scene from my childhood, I spent my time playing in the 40 or so acres of woods my grandparents owned back in West Virginia. It was so magical there; I played by myself from dawn until dusk with my imaginary friends, singing songs and studying bugs I’d find. There was a particular patch of moss that was so magical, the sun would beam down onto it with tall trees perfectly encircling it all around me. I’d nap there until a bird or deer would wake me up. I don’t miss much about WV beyond the wildlife, specifically on my grandparents’ land. The mountains, lush trees, cool air, big rocks, the smell of moist earth, thick, soft moss, hiding places and secret nooks… something so mystical about it in the Spring-Autumn months.
Idea I just had to get out of my system. Ok back to art I actually got paid to do :I (That’s normal Vera in a cockroach costume running with a bunch of giant roaches aka my dream.) :D
Just a little personal art WIP of a sunglow boa character I’m thinking of being yet another representation of myself/outlet for my desire to be a beautiful scaly slithery creature ;u; Thinking of naming her Effigia, as I was planning on making some of her features (mainly limbs, torso and position while walking) similar to the long and slender archosaur. It’s especially fitting as both my real boas are named Ghost and Eidolon :P I’m trying to resist giving her a fancy collar and third eye, but that seems to be a running “theme” for any personas I make, which may be a good and bad thing. Part of me thinks “hey this is a cool” but the bigger part of me thinks “man people must thank I’m LAME and uncreative for always throwing a third eye on all my more personal characters” x.x ANYWAY. What do you guys think?
A WIP painting of my cockroach girl. Don’t know if I’ll ever get it done. Last post for today, promise :B
