Well, I continue to more or less live in outer space (I’d feel guiltier about this, but it’s kind of a survival thing right now; finances and mental health are both pretty disastrous, although I’m doing my best to change that, slowly).

After an ... extended period of rewatching, note-taking and analysis, the outline for my Garak/Bashir fic project(!) is coming together, although I’m weirdly having a much easier time with the emotional arc than the plot. (This is seriously unusual for me! At least, in my original work, where concept/plot/worldbuilding are always the easier part, so far.) I’m getting closer, though ... and deeply excited to just immerse myself in writing these characters.

(Mainly, I’m struggling to invent the specifics of a convoluted, covert plot worthy of Elim Garak. I mean, that’s kind of next level, you know? Argh.)

Also, I semi-accidentally took a NSFW fanart commission based on the suspension scene from The Policy of Truth a scorching hot BDSM-centric fic by [archiveofourown.org profile] Prevailing (WiP, but worth it, and I’m fairly certain she will finish it eventually). Which was also a bit of a departure on a number of levels.

Here’s the (NSFW!) full image. )

I kind of have a lizard problem. But at least I’m enjoying myself?

This show.

Here's my second [community profile] kink_bingo amnesty piece ... for my "tentacles" square. Ariel/Ursula, because of course. Also, Not Safe For Work. )

Okay, sorry for being brief, but I need to crash soon. It's the weekend and my roommate's out of town for a few days: I want to be awake to appreciate the sheer lack of slamming doors and tense silences.

Oof, hello, internet. God, I've had an intense couple of weeks. My grad school likes to start off its second semester by diving immediately into a super-concentrated group project with a ridiculous deadline! Crit was this morning, and it is so nice to be able to think about other things at last (although tbh, the main thing I'm thinking about at this moment is sleep).

Now that we're past that hurdle, however, it looks like a much more pleasantly balanced semester is doable! :D I have some plans (and have signed up for [livejournal.com profile] bandombigbang, eeee), but in the meantime, I want to share what I spent my vacation on ...

introductory image!
So Victoria thought this was just another one of "those" modelling gigs. Not safe for work. Contains naked ladies, stockings, and flogging.

See, I've been thinking a lot about learning to draw erotica this last year! I've seen a couple of potential opportunities to draw porn comics pop up, and it's definitely something that interests me, but I know I don't really have the chops to pull it off in a professional way just yet. Drawing porn is hard (aheh); everything from the sheer physical mechanics of bodies interacting to trying to capture some sense of mood. So! [personal profile] were_duck asked me if I'd be interested in teaming up on some kind of joint project, and after I posted this kinky vintage picspam (also NSFW) for her over the holidays, we decided to try a 1920s Greta/Victoria erotic photoshoot AU.

We weren't really sure what form the project would take; at the moment there's just a series of backgroundless pin-up images I drew over a period of a couple of weeks. Eventually there will be artistic contributions by [personal profile] were_duck as well (oh man, the stuff she's working on is fabulous, seriously, just you wait), and ... maybe some kind of story? We have a loose narrative in mind, but I really needed to focus on visuals for a bit; to just start drawing and see where it led me. I have .... a lot of thoughts for where I might go next (whether it's in fanart or original work). There are lots of things I need to work on, though. Like different body types! (I meant to emphasize this a bit more and didn't manage to pull it off; too focused on getting the posing down, I think.) And general anatomy in some places. Hmmm.

Okay, I need to think about relaxing now; I still have a little bit of that deadline tension buzzing under my skin. Be seeing you a bit more of you all soon. ♥

Yesterday, I was sitting in a cafe drawing with [personal profile] ataratah when some excited tweets led to us looking at Brendon Urie in a thong ... which I only just now realize, I did nothing to shield the establishment's other patrons from. Um. I've missed fandom? Hi! I've been pretty busy visiting with old friends and dancing at the wedding of my former epic adolescent infatuation, but I need a little more internet time.

Speaking of NSFW imagery ... I have been working on something to share with you guys! Way back in March, [personal profile] lucifuge5 won a two-page fancomic, which I have finally completed. The following is a scene from her Due South/Down With Love fusion, DONE With Love:

'Fraser,' Ray interrupted, 'Sorry. I won't be able to make it. I'm all tied up.' (NSFW) )

Thanks again to [personal profile] lucifuge5 for your generous bid on [livejournal.com profile] help_japan!

I feel like my juices are finally flowing again after a good month of art slump (all that transition just doesn't do anything for me creatively). I am ready to make ALL THE COMICS ... very very soon. :D

Now I need to go try and get things set up with my electrical company from a state away, since my new roommate is moving into the apartment a week ahead of me.

So awhile back, I signed up for the second round of [livejournal.com profile] trekreversebang, and now I finally get to post! I love the whole concept of reverse bangs (there should be more of them, in all my fandoms); in a neat reversal, fanartists get to see what it's like when another creative person takes our work and runs with hir own interpretation. Fascinating.

As my piece is a bit NSFW, have a thumbnail, and the full image beneath the cut:

Lieutenant, Captain, Commander ... is that really appropriate conduct for the turbolift? )

I swear I meant to draw something that implied a little more, oh, plot ... fortunately, the intrepid [livejournal.com profile] classroomnotes managed to spin one out anyway! You can find the tale here: Dream Weaver (Spock/Uhura, R). It reminds me delightfully of an episode of TOS, only with a bit of AOS spin (and slightly risque subject matter, comparatively speaking). I am flattered that she was inspired by my work.

You guys should check out the community; there is going to be a whole mess of fantastic fic & art going up over there over the next few weeks. I'm looking forward to reading; I've already had sneak peeks at the artwork, and let me tell you, it is stunning. Seriously some of the best overall output I've ever seen for a single challenge.

Hey kids! I know I've been . . . extremely absentee this year. I've been very busy, and fandom just hasn't been ranking very high on my list of things to do. However, how on earth could I resist a femslash cliche challenge? I've drawn these two pieces as entries for [livejournal.com profile] alien_altars. Both are Marvel comics femslash, and both are Not Safe For Work, so view at your own risk.

In both cases, I kind of had a cliche in mind, but neither one really worked out. ^^; Fortunately, artists weren't actually required to use cliches. (They really do work better with narrative; if I'd had time, I would've written a cliche femslash comic. I still may, at some point.)

Fandom: X-Men (comicverse)
Pairing: Rachel "Marvel Girl" Grey/Kitty "Shadowcat" Pryde
Rating: NC-17
Summary: This picture has a bit of context.
(failed) Cliche: I'd say "telepathy/soulbond," but that would totally be cheating.

kiss hello )

Fandom: Runaways
Pairing: Karolina/Xavin
Rating: R (for nudity)
Summary: I guess the idea is Karolina accepting and loving herself for who she is (a sparkly alien lesbian). So here, Karolina is admiring herself in a mirror, while a happy post-coital Xavin looks on.
(failed) Cliche: Started out as voyeurism, but didn't wind up qualifying.

she needs a little sparkle )

Enjoy, guys . . . I have to go to bed already. I just wanted to get these up now, rather than after work tomorrow.

Hey, sorry, I know I'm really quiet right now. Life has kind of been taking me away from fandom a lot . . . though I have done a few newish pieces of fanart (all X-Men related), which can be found at my dA account.

However, [livejournal.com profile] femslash_today recently had a Fourth of July commentfic "porn battle." So if you're interested in reading lots of short multifandom femslash PWPs (and who wouldn't be?), check this out.

My entry was the only drawing, and since it violates the dA TOS, I'll post it here. This picture is NSFW; there is female nudity, and touching.

Cherries; A Midsummer Night's Dream, Helena/Hermia, companionship )

At some point I ought to write some sort of response to Superman Returns, which I very much enjoyed. But, my lunch break is almost over.
