Fandom | Cast: Final Fantasy XII, Vaan.
Notes: Was having a super cranky afternoon, then saw this and decided that I needed to do that pose with a guy. I started just drawing it and it turned into Vaan. The ragedoodle looked okay, so I coloured it. The end. Took about an hour all told.

Been a while.

Daily Doodle: Quickie portrait. I must have gotten quite a bit faster — and maybe a little better? I drew him rather surly, but it's a much closer resemblance in that little time than I've manged before, I think... who knew drawing every day for a year would work >.>

... actually, holy crap guys. It HAS been a year, almost! This is doodle #354, I think. Dang.
Time: ~15 mins

Daily Doodle: Like yesterday's Penelo and Hashmal, this is another esper/hume match from Alchemies. Espers are so damn complicated.

Daily Doodle: This is at [personal profile] renay's request, as a pick-me-up after Black Friday. Congrats on surviving! ♥ And to everyone else in retail — congrats! Thanks to [ profile] first_seventhe and [ profile] owlmoose for advice and quick once-over =)

Uhhh I don't actually have much to say. If you have no idea why Vaan/Gabranth of all things, the pairings comes from a story I wrote for [ profile] ff_exchange, These Unending Alchemies of Honour.

Also, Noah's leathers can go die in a fire.

I think I'm due for some goats soon, though, I can't keep drawing big things every day XD

@[ profile] ff_press: [FFXII:OGC] [ profile] justira: Gabranth/Vaan doodle (Gabranth/Vaan) (PG)

Daily Doodle: Man guys. This thing was NOT cooperating. I still don't like it but I am so done with trying to be creative today! Bad mood — unhappy with words, unhappy with arts, still utterly exhausted from this whole damn week.

This actually started out as just trying to get a handle on Noah, and then Vaan kind of happened. I'm a little distressed, because I keep thinking he can be mistaken for Balthier. His features aren't Balthier's at all (Balthier is way sharper), and I checked and checked my references and I'm pretty sure he's... fairly on-model. Fairly. I can't get his hair right. But true story, Balthier/Vaan is a pairing that, uh, more than four people have heard of, and Noah/Vaan isn't? XD (I love Balthier/Vaan, though, maybe I should draw them too just for contrast — see, see, THIS is what Balthier looks like when I draw him!)

Anyway. I just had a hard time today; I'm sorry if this is not awesome =|

Backdated 1 hour
Time: I don't even know, really off and on. Call it 40-50 mins?

Daily Doodle: Hey so, I don't know why I keep trying to draw portraits in MS Paint? It's probably not smart? I reffed this off a single screencap, which I hate doing, but I was too tired to come up with something original. I guess it's... okay? I'm kind of proud of it, maybe. I'm hoping it's at least recognizable.
Time: 25-30 mins? it was off and on, I didn't keep track

Title: Introductions
Characters/Pairings: Balthier/Fran/Vaan
Rating/Warnings/Spoilers: PG, no real warnings, no spoilers
Crit/Feedback: Always welcome!
Notes: Backup gift whipped up for [ profile] ff_exchange, for [ profile] carbonatedh2o's prompt: Balthier/Fran/Vaan - Balthier and Fran in an established relationship, introduce Vaan to the wonders of... sex or something. If you don't want to do the sex part, though, that's fine.

I had, let us say, not much notice on doing this backup gift, so I had to scramble a little and ended up taking my idea from this piece of Moogle Fluff -- redrew it completely, cleaned it up, coloured it. I feel a little like a superhero. Guys, I did this in like four hours. Because that is how much notice I had. haha. yeah.

Summary: "I think perhaps we can skip certain introductions, Vaan?"

Title: These Unending Alchemies of Honour
Fandom(s): FFXII:OGC
Characters/Pairings: Vaan/Gabranth, Basch, Larsa, Penelo
Rating: PG13
Spoilers/Warnings: Spoilers through the end of the game. Full disclosure: canonically, Vaan is 17 and Gabranth is 36 so. Uh. Yeah. Pedobear seal of approval.

Feedback: Holy sweet jesus, yes please. For anyone who wants to give me some serious crit, I've put together some notes/concerns at the very end of the story.
Word Count: 38,500 WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN

Summary: Gabranth lives, and there is nothing simple about it— not for him, nor Basch, and most especially not Vaan.

Notes: Written for [ profile] ff_exchange as a backup gift for [ profile] chaosraven/[personal profile] chaosraven's prompt Vaan/Gabranth. Post-game, Gabranth lives to tell the tale and Vaan is stuck with conflicting feelings.

OKAY UH. I have a lot of people to thank here, and also a few notes on canon, not to mention my crit notes.

A huge thanks to [ profile] first_seventhe/[personal profile] seventhe for the gamma read, the beta read, the cheerleading. This story could not have happened with you and your awesome suggestions. Another huge thanks to [ profile] bottle_of_shine/[personal profile] renay, for beta reading, putting up with my woe and whining, and staving off my panic attacks for the past week. Thanks also go to [ profile] lassarina/[personal profile] lassarina for help in the early stages of plotting and also for listening to my endless moaning. Finally, thanks to [ profile] mithrigil/[personal profile] mithrigil for the advice on language; though I didn't have time to ask for a full language beta, the advice you gave me was very helpful.

Daily Doodle: OKAY now that I am done making my own gift and have resolved my time management/tablet management issues, I can start making Moogle Fluff for [ profile] ff_exchange! I put more work into this than a regular doodle, since it's for someone, but still, very much a doodle. Took longer, too, possibly because there's three people in it :P

Lots of hand issues, I think, and something about Vaan's head/face just doesn't work. But I think I like this idea enough to clean it up eventually.



Time:1h45min or so?
