The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal - Just Listen )

Notes )

So, [personal profile] renay asked for her birthday that I (finally) open daily doodles to requests. Happy Birthday, [personal profile] renay! Thank you for all your support! Here goes nothing =)

Daily Doodles are now open to requests

ETA: Aaaand that appears to be it for this round. Cripes that went quick! ALL REQUEST SLOTS TAKEN, REQUEST SLOTS CLOSED Thank you guys! =D

For my reference, a list of requests )

To keep myself sane, a few rules:

   » I'll take 5 requests at a time, no more than once every two weeks. First five to comment.

   » I don't have to know you or the canon you request -- though if it's something I don't know I might ask for refs =)

   » Please keep it relatively simple for now! 1-3 characters. Makeouts welcome!

   » Any rating is fine!

I've always meant to take requests. It's good motivation to make myself improve, as I invariably try harder if it's for someone else. It's pretty easy for me to get overwhelmed with a "must make stuff for others!" feeling though, so I'm trying to take it relatively easy.

That said, if you're here and reading you've likely seen both the high point and the, uh, not-so-high points of my doodles. I really can't guarantee anything, only that I'll try =D

Finally, as it's [personal profile] renay's birthday, she gets dibs on one request, so this week there's only four slots =)

Daily Doodle: Yorda from Ico. More atmospheric than accurate, I guess =\
Time: ... 20 mins? too long for the result, at any rate -_-

Daily Doodle:  )
Daily Doodle: This is more of a sketch or wip or something (read: not really done), but I am tired and SO cranky, so! I meant to draw this this weekend, when I saw it, but as evidenced by cat-goats I was way too tired.

So, behold!

If you want, you can think of this as a deep metaphor for how Holmes's relationship to Watson is parasitic and toxic (and so delicious)... or maybe Holmes is just a biter and Watson likes it. Whatevs.

Relatively pleased with how Watson (Jude Law) turned out. It is super hard, fyi, to draw biting in this realistic-ish style, so I guess Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) turned out okay, all things considered? =\

PS: I feel a little better about today just because I drew Jude Law making that face.
Backdated 2 hours
Time: 2.5ish hours?


Daily Doodle: Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes - Holmes/Watson )
Daily Doodle: Okay so there is this movie, Charlie Bartlett (2007), that everyone needs to see. For those of you who have not seen it, I guess all you need to know is that this is the eponymous Charlie Bartlett (Anton Yelchin) and Nathan Gardner (Robert Downey Jr.).

Art-related: One of VERY few attempts at realistic likeness of real people instead of cartoons! haha. Shoot me now please. Advanced critique is SUPER welcome, but please just keep in mind that I almost never draw this style. I'll try to do so more often in the future; it's a skill I wish I had. warrrrgle die ._.

Legal-related! Anton Yelchin is 20, I think 18 at time of filming. LJ has been enough of a douche lately that I'm not posting this art there, only a pointer.

Backdated 2 hours
Time: 2-2.5 hour or so, jesus I agonized over this


Daily Doodle: Charlie Bartlett/Nathan Gardner )

Daily Doodle: Moving right along with my Nostalgia Central Tour, The Thief and the Cobbler (known for a short time in the US as Arabian Knight) is another one of those amazing animated films too few people have seen or even heard of. This particular film has a complicated and troubled history but has some absolutely amazing animation, and both titular characters (Thief and Tack the Cobbler) are utterly charming. It's really hard to get ahold of, but you can watch a fan-reconstructed cut on youtube.

... And this here is Tack, the cobbler. This week has been utterly exhausting so uh, that is pretty much the extent of my commentary. Kudos x 1000 to those who recognize him.
Time: 40 mins. I am really slow this week.

Daily Doodle: The Thief and the Cobbler - Tack (G) )
Well, I've had a locked post like this for a while where I can keep up with my progress in the various fics and have plot summaries and such, but it occurred to me that maybe some people would be interested in seeing a public version, to know what the hell I'm up to. So I messed with the original a bit, mostly to strip away spoilers (both for the canons and for my plots), and, well, here we are. The list of fic I plan to write.

I tossed in some vague ideas for fics and my plans for a couple of vids at the end. Fan art is not included here because there is just way too much to list, and hey, I gotta have SOME surprises. Besides, you can always just look at the damn doodle meme for a fair guess at what to expect in terms of sketches. Polished pieces I want to be a surprise anyway =P

EDIT: Decided to go ahead and make this a general fic post with links to my finished stuff, too.

Son of edit: Okay, I admit it, I write drabbles, and I enjoy it, too! So I decided to go ahead and add my drabbles, new and old, to this post as well.

EDIT 3.14159: And of course the post got too large. List of completed fics now has its own post.

Fic to do! )

Wow, I am crazy. Who knew it would get this bad when I got into fanfic last November? This is, of course, not even taking into account the original fiction I'm working on, which is at least as long as all of this put together. OI. Ira, you so crazy.


I didn't have much scanner access on vacation, and so the unscanned doodles built up. Then I got home and the pile scared me so I kept drawing without scanning and wonder of wonders, the pile got bigger! After nearly a month I realized that this was ridiculous and I had to scan SOMETHING or at least let people know I hadn't forgotten!


IT'S A DOODLE MEME UPDATE ZOMG. The meme itself has been updated with when everyone's requests were dont, and I'll try to scan in more or less that order. I also have five doodles here for you today, most of them digital. I'm just about out of requests already, so feel free to request again. I have regular scanner access now so I promise it'll be less retardedly late >.>

Anyway, the doodles!

[02] Avatar for me and [livejournal.com profile] bottle_of_shine
[01] Back to the Future for [livejournal.com profile] fire_tears
[01] Final Fantasy VIII for [livejournal.com profile] bottle_of_shine
[01] One Piece for [livejournal.com profile] remus_no_miko

Okay, I'm gonna kick this off with the marty that [livejournal.com profile] fire_tears requested because it was my first try at realism with the new colouring style I've discovered. I think it's very flawed but pretty good for a doodle! I mean, he's recognizable, right? ;______________;

I am EXTREMELY proud of his nose, and oh my god I think I kind of did skin tones okay! His headphones look like malignant leeches, though. >.> Thanks very much to [livejournal.com profile] megalotro for the help in making him not look like a cock-eyed middle aged woman >.>

Four more doodles under the cut, including TEH GHEY )

Aaaaand that's all I got for you today folks. Sorry about the DEAFENING SILENCE. I've been a bit busy >.>
