More Changes to Elliott by BlueBead
More Changes to Elliott
[On Tumblr]

I FINISHED IT. Started this drawing a week and three days ago. Bleh. Part of that was lack of motivation, part of that was with the size and shading style of this drawing, it just took a really long time.

Anyways, I've done design modifications to my character Elliott again. As I was mentioning to a friend before, Elliott and his weird bat-person design is strange. Most of the time when I draw and post art, my average opinion of it is: This is suitable to show people my current talent. It's the same with drawing Elliott, only the drawing of him "age" way faster. What I mean by "age" is the time it takes for me to look back on a drawing and think, "What is this garbage?" I guess since I had no prior experience with drawing strange arm-wings and feet-hands that my skill curve on pictures of Elliott is much steeper. Regardless, I wonder how long it'll take me to look at this picture and go "Ew..."? For now though, I like this a lot better than even his last drawing which was nearly 4 months ago. See below
<da:thumb id="463301893">
Now he looks like he fits his age (16) better, and obvious anatomy improvements. Also, he's actually got some muscle definition now. Need some muscles if you're going to fly and leap around like a little acrobat. Kind of derped up on the shading on said muscles, but I DON'T CARE I WANT THIS DRAWING TO BE DONE. Got commissions coming up soon that I need to work on anyways.

Now for just a little bit on Elliott's character that changed. It was something I contemplated making canon about him for a long time, but was like, "Should I mention it? Is it taboo?" However, now that I'm more openly supportive of the idea of gender queers and ttranssexuals.. Elliott was actually born a female with the name Elinor, but at a fairly young age he felt he fit somewhere more on the masculine side of the spectrum. So he uses male pronouns even though he doesn't completely associate with the male gender. He's not sure where he lies on the spectrum yet. Thankfully for him, he's naturally flat-chested as hell and has fluff to cover it up.

I HAVE SAID IT. IT IS NOW CANON.

Lastly, really like how the hair came out. :v

Would you look at that. I've been practicing drawing more interesting poses and character interactions! I've also been practicing not obsessing over details. This drawing in total took roughly 5 hours and 26 minutes according to a little productivity timer I got. It only counts time when Photoshop is the top window.

My characters Dayne and Tillip have a fun relationship. They're best buds, but that doesn't stop them from harassing the shit out of each other from time to time.

Juniper- Style Experiment by BlueBead
Juniper- Style Experiment
[On Tumblr]

Felt like playing with a new, more cartoony style that I can draw faster. I focused more on just form and shape instead of stuff like skeleton and rigid anatomy. I draw way too slowly mainly because I spend too much time on stuff that gets deleted anyways, like skeletal structure. I also need to work on being less obsessive over my line art. It's still the phase that takes longest in my art.

Also, drawing Juni's rapier was pretty fun. :D

Juniper Ica by BlueBead
Juniper Ica
[On Tumblr]

This is a heavily redesigned and renamed version of my old character Jade Ica. Her new name is Juniper Ica (pronounced like joon-ah-per eye-ca). Also, her nicknames are Jun (joon) or Juni (joo-nee). Since I don't have too much to say about the drawing itself, I'll talk about her character a bit.

Juniper has a very relaxed personality. It takes a lot to really phase her. She's very gentle and motherly, and she likes to stick to schedules and follow rules. She can be pretty strict at times. She's also a bit obsessive compulsive about hygiene and cleanliness. She's very caring towards her friends and only wants the best for them, even though it sometimes comes off as nagging.

As for her special ability, she has the ability summon constructs made of mental energy. The gem on her forehead is where she channels energy from. She can make walls, turrets, simple familiars, blades, and more. Anything she can really conceptualize, but if she hasn't made a certain construct before or she's forgotten how, it takes much longer for her to build it, since she has to re-design it. 
All of these constructs have a lifespan, durability, build time, and energy cost. The longer the lifespan, the longer the build time and cost, and vice-versa. The more durable the construct, the longer the build time and cost, and vice-versa. Her powers are focused around balance. She can throw up a defensive wall quickly and have it be very fragile and last only a moment, or she could spend the time and energy to make it stronger and last longer, but the time it takes to build it leaves her vulnerable and takes more of her energy. Building also takes a lot of focus, so if she gets distracted, the construct could fail or turn out incorrectly. Her powers also require a lot of micro-managing, since she has to command certain constructs like familiars and turrets, as well as keeping track of lifespans so she can renew them as needed.

Physically, Juniper is nothing special. This means in combat, she tends to stay towards the back in safety. Juniper generally fills a support/defensive role in battle, but her versatility allows her to hold her own pretty well.

If you bothered to read all that, let me know what you think! I'm still fleshing out her personality, but I'm pretty happy with her appearance and special ability. It's been a while since I've designed a character that's suppose to be pretty in a traditional sense. I consider my other two female characters Tillip and Linnet pretty, but in a sort of sci-fi, non-traditional way.

Lastly, this is what she looks like with her glasses off: [link]

Trigger Warnings: Talk of illness, animal death mention


    This is sort of a follow-up to my last long-winded and depressing journal.

    My dog Dakota went back to the vet this morning because his fever was still too high. The vets decided to sort of start from square one and do some more tests, since it was looking more and more like it isn’t Bartonella. Firstly, his red blood cell count is still going down. Secondly, he got a test where they extract some fluid from his joints to look for… something, I’m not sure… but it can point to possible auto-immune trouble. The test came back positive. So it’s looking likely that this is auto-immune problems now. It could be something wrong with his bone marrow since he doesn’t have many red blood cells, but we’re not sure. However, at least we got a positive test result and can actually start pursuing actual treatment. As a side note, his lymph nodes are completely back to normal now, so that’s great. He’s still looking pretty miserable, but finally some tangible progress…

    My hedgehog Hiccup is still doing great. He’s back to his old self. Just last night I let him play in my hair, and he decided to take a nap there. We just snuggled like that for 20 minutes. I’m so happy he’s doing better. Still don’t know for sure what was wrong, but I still think it was a flare-up of arthritis. He possibly got a little too heavy (he weighed around 560 grams before he started feeling bad, which is on the bigger side for a hedgehog), but after he stopped eating for a while because of the pain and lack of activity, his weight’s now at 450g. So now I’m going to really try to monitor his weight. Ideally, I’d like it to stay under 500g.

    As for me, I’m still having trouble coping with the loss of Snickers, but I’m doing considerably better. I’m still physically doing pretty badly though. My ear is still giving me issues with congestion and balance, I think I have one of my not-migraine-migraines (I don’t get the headache, but I get every other migraine-like symptom. Malaise, fatigue, aches, etc.), I’m still worried about my blood sugar, my TMJ’s flared up bad from my nervous chewing habit, I have trouble focusing, my sleep schedule’s all screwed up… I feel pretty awful. I’m hanging in there, at least.

    I just really hope Dakota can be treated. My family and I really don’t want to have to make the call to euthanize him if he’ll never get better… He’s definitely not enjoying life at the moment, so if this is untreatable… Yeah… I just really hope it won’t come down to that.
