Wrenn again ~
it’s yellowish because i suck at taking photos of things on flat surfaces.
apologies for the wonky anatomy on the bottom picture.
Near the top, she’s getting a piggy-back-ride from Amsel, the other main character of this hypothetical web-comic.
As is usual, my style often warps in the direction of what manga/comic I’ve read recently. so … a touch of Bakuman eh? [Takeshi Obata] but not enough for it to look proportional and pretty haha. Sketchbook things

this is Wrenn. She enjoys tinkering with little mechanical critters.
she’s one of the main characters for the web comic i’m trying to put together [i’m trying ; - ; ]
i’ll upload a diff pic of her where her hair isn’t all upside down tomorrow or somethin. oh man i’m ridiculously happy with how her left hand was drawn out. that’s about it though. The rest could use work. Lots of it x - x
She's of both air and earth elements so she both a sniper/archer and she's a mechanic. Right here, in this preview sketch, she's just conversing with Amsel in her usual casual yet mildly sarcastic way of speaking. To her, the inner workings of the little automated creature she has on her stomach are pretty simple to understand. Amsel, a water element, unfortunately doesn't really understand mechanics and so Wrenn is getting a little frustrated and snarky trying to explain things to him.

hard chalk pastel on paper
As Kiefer had said before...
"I cannot explain why I am here." ...
we are not miracles
we are not special
we are a simple mistake of nature
and we can't live with this reality:
the reality that we were not born with a purpose
so we create illusions of purpose and meaning to survive
to live on
disillusionment is ...
something I both yearn for and fear.
maybe that's what my art is about

Remember when we sat together
and our lives burned behind us
Comet tails of misery and discontentment
Manifestations of our dreams
The truth of it was
When I was told that you were never shining
And that it was only the reflection of a million suns
That you projected into my eyes to fool me,
I gave a solemn nod in confirmation that
Those were my sentiments exactly
So I sat down upon the highest tree tops to watch
Oh, how brilliantly tragic it was to watch your spirit wander across the sky alone
As I lay here, deconstructing my earth, my heavens, my stars, my silence
So long, my friend.

I'm making a marionette : ]
here's what I've worked on tonight....
premo + sculpey + wire rings above the ears and on the bottom of the neck
I realise the neck isn't centered and that there are inconsistencies with the symmetry...
I fixed the neck after the photo was taken.

The humanoid creature was perched above the door as usual. I tried not to look. It mostly disappeared with the flip of a light switch. But, once the lights went out again, it walked, rather, limped over to my bedside. I stared into its face. It looked like a skull that someone had stretched a glistening membrane over. I shuddered.
It was usually faceless, but this close up, I saw a tear begin where its mouth should have been. In a split-second, its face tore open into a ghastly glasgow smile. Blood sprayed across my bedroom wall and I was frozen with fear. It screamed and then laughed as I reeled back in disgust and horror.
I want to try to capture this elusive creature with my art someday.
Maybe it'll give me some peace of mind then.

It seems like all my old posts that I edited and republished suddenly got 'views...
Most of the things I edited.......... it was because there was just too much idiocy going on.
Too many emoticons and net-speak. yeah.
Currently not all sane.
Apologies for incoherence.

I haven't practiced coloring in a long time. Starting again. Not satisfied with skin tones.
Focusing on recovery has thrown a delay into my web-comic plans but I'll do my best to have something up by the summer.... even if it's just detailed backgrounds and snippets of character descriptions that will be massive spoilers.
I am slightly concerned with how his red hair may be too reminiscent of Renji's from Bleach...
