was experimenting with some stylistic choices for these. just some guys

a digitally drawn fullbody of a dragon character. her body structure is reminiscent of that of a rat, but she has large fins behind her head and on her tail, as well as two thin horns coming from her forehead. she is mostly a dark black color, but she has dark purple and light pink markings. under her wing, these markings vaguely resemble a starry sky. she has a large knife sheathed at her shoulder.

a digital drawing of two bright green dragons in the desert, both perched on stones. both dragons have layers of large, striped scales around the base of their tails, and this striping is prominently shown on the rest of the body as well. one of them is a darker shade of green, and is displaying a bright red dewlap.

tiger aloe dragons are a non-sapient species typically found in certain scrub deserts. adult males are distinguished by their bright red dewlaps and darker green hue. older tiger aloes typically have more leaf-like scales at the bases of their tails than younger ones.

A digitally drawn headshot of two dragons. One, a gray dragon with orange eyes, is crying and drooling an orange fluid. The other dragon, a brown dragon with green eyes, is nuzzling them gently, mouth open to speak. Both dragons look pained. The characters are lit from underneath, against a lavender-purple background.

A series of three portraits, which have been compiled into one image and arranged side-by-side. From left to right: A purple creature with a skull-like face has its head angled to the left, but is looking to the right, seemingly thoughtful. An orange dragon with pronged horns stares to the left, looking dismal. A blue dragon with one horn coming from his forehead and an orange scarf looks upwards and to the right, appearing concerned.

A shoulders-up portrait of a creature with clothes and a skull-like face. The creature is staring past and to the left of the camera.  Their eyes are watery, and their fur is being blown by the wind. It is nighttime, and everything is tinted purple.

A digital painting of a light purple, nearly white dragon descending down the canvas. The dragon is breathing bright, rainbow-colored flames that spiral around it.

needed a break from OC stuff and plotting shit that's going nowhere so i drew something based on an old piece from 2016. not really a redraw, it looks nothing like the old one, but ... purplish whitish dragon, rainbow fire, same soup just reheated

happy new years you guys ! sorry for falling off the face of the earth, i've been having a lot of executive functioning issues and kind of hating the miserable toil of being alive and yet having nothing to do. i keep starting projects that go nowhere and that's been a well of infinite frustration as well, so it's just kind of been a lot of ... nothing

here's to 2021, and here's hoping things will change for the better from here <3

decided i should post these, since i can't honestly see myself finishing the project these guys are from. these are references for a webcomic i was drafting under the working title Fall of the Cards, which was going to be, at its core, a story about rebelling against an exploitative system. i ended up getting halted by a scene towards the end that i just couldn't figure out, and then stopped working on it.

sketchdumps + further information under the cut, for those interested. warning for artistic depictions of violence, blood & murder.


a lot of the story was shuffled around during development, but its plot was always going to be built around the climactic moment of Valentine killing Longinus, who was at the top of the pyramid, for lack of a better word. besides this, not a lot actually happened in the story, and most of it was built on dialogue. nothing i wrote down ever really felt solid, the pacing was choppy, and i didn't really know how to fix any of it. nothing was ever certain, either - in some drafts i had Valentine leave, abandoning Dismas and Sebastian after they killed Longinus, only to be maimed and left on the doorstep as a threat. in others, they stayed. i was also never able to figure out how they'd actually enact change, since Longinus' murder was ultimately symbolic violence.

i also had issues with the worldbuilding - the dragons in the story were in a fundamentally early state of society, with a simple system of living. they'd hunt on hunting teams, but most of the kills were sucked up by Longinus and their buddies, and the rest of the band tended to get mostly scraps. hunting without approval was also punishable by grievous violence. there are ways it could have worked, but i found it difficult to work with personally. the state of their culture also made it difficult to explain how valentine could recover from the grievous injuries inflicted on them in some drafts- i had a hard time finding resources on early medicine without the technology we have now, and as a result couldn't see a way to make it work.

as far as projects go, i think it might be the closest i've gotten to having a story i could tell, one that was complete. i wouldn't be opposed to returning to it, but it would require more reworking and rewriting, and i'd be liable to abandon it again at the drop of a hat.

sorry for falling off the face of the earth y'all!! i kinda stopped having any ideas to draw, or even the motivation to do it, and recently i started having technological difficulties that are preventing me from doing it now anyway. i've been doing traditional sketches though, but the downside of posting them is i'd have to do so through my phone, which would be very unpleasant, and i don't really want to do that.

on the technological difficulties, my big computer's started bluescreening on a regular basis, so i can't draw anything digitally. it's to the point where i can't do anything; it usually crashes within 30 minutes, and whenever it does it gets caught in a bios boot loop and i have to unplug it and plug it back in to get past the bios. we can't really tell if it's a hardware or a software issue right now, but at the very least there have apparently been some corrupted files. whether it's going to be fully fixed up in the near future is up in the air, but in the meantime, i'm still out here! this just sucks!
