So the other day I saw this post fancasting Rihanna as Crowley and Lupita Nyong'o as Aziraphale on my tumblr dash, and had to try and give it a shot. Could've done a better job with the shading, but it was super fun to do nonetheless! I should make a point of drawing more fancasts in the future.

Summer's ending, and with it, I'm supposed to be doing less fanart, but ... that doesn't really seem to be happening, does it? I'm currently signed up for [ profile] fanartremixexchange, [community profile] femslashex, and [ profile] tw_fallharvest. All my assignments are super exciting! And of course, here I am producing completely random things.

Scott McCall is a Magical Girl. )

Also, speaking of fanart, Teen Wolf, and Sailor Moon, I'm meant to be reccing the latter on [community profile] fanart_recs this month (and I'm behind! I need to get another post up, stat). Here's a roundup of my Teen Wolf recs from last month! )

It occurs to me that I know nothing about any incoming new shows this fall. Anything you guys are excited about?

So I almost didn't watch the current season of Teen Wolf (which might have been a wise choice) because I was so sad and frustrated about Allison Argent's death. She was my favorite character, and I was not at all happy with how she was handled in 3B; even given that Crystal Reed wanted to leave the show, she was one of the main characters and deserved a much better closing arc. So as the new season was approaching, I started daydreaming about a spin-off. I mean, we have werewolves and banshees ... why not ghosts?

It's a shame that I can't find a functional reversebang, so I can try to get someone to fic this properly ... but I'm just going to go ahead and make so much art.

Here's a montage of 'excerpts' from the 'pilot episode.' )

And of course, there's the promotional image I posted awhile back, and ghostly embraces! [personal profile] ataratah even drew this lovely piece based on my original musing. I plan to do a whole bunch more "excerpt" images (although probably not another whole episode's worth). I guess I kind of needed an ongoing fandom project? :D?

Also, speaking of [personal profile] ataratah, here's one more piece of TW fanart based on a hilariously awesome prompt from her. Werewolf cabbage babies! )

Gotta dash (new temp job, whee), but before I forget - you guys REALLY SHOULD consider signing up for [community profile] femslashex! It's a MULTIFANDOM FIC AND ART EXCHANGE, focused on pairings with no canonically male-identified characters! There are so many amaaaazing fandoms. :D I'm so excited! It's great that more fests are starting to include art. <3

Also, this month I'm reccing Teen Wolf over on [community profile] fanart_recs, which is a great comm you should know about. I'll post a round-up here when I'm done. (Next month I'm doing Sailor Moon!)

Another huge fanart roundup, courtesy of the summer where I only have the energy to manage job search stuff, draw fanart, and let my whole professional identity lie pretty much fallow. :D?

Okay, that sounded a little ... yeah. Actually, things are looking up in a big way! I have a pretty big deal second interview tomorrow, for a position I'm genuinely excited for which also pays better than I'd had any hope of, so. Fingers crossed. And I am having a ball with letting myself soak more or less exclusively in fannish material for a bit. :)

This ... actually isn't quite everything, but I'll take a breath and save the rest for its own post. ;)

Hey guys, you should leave me some prompts to doodle from for my little informal female characters fest! I encourage making things too, but give me something to do, yeah? ;)

This one’s not a doodle, but ... I’ve been meaning to draw it since early on in Teen Wolf season 3(a), and after this week in television, I needed something really ridiculous and fun. Plus, the theme song for the new Sailor Moon anime has been going around, and I am exciiited.

Allison Argent, dressed as Tuxedo Mask, runs through the night. Lovesick Sailor!Isaac and Sailor!Scott stare after her.

More appropriate tribute art later, I suspect, but I enjoyed this way too much. ;)

Isaac and Allison are confused by the presence of a kid with a unicorn horn There will be time for life updates later, but for now ... have some relatively quick TV fanart drawn as warm-ups/procrastination on my real work.

I enjoyed last week’s episode of Teen Wolf, possibly because of the blessed absence of all the various characters from season 3A that I could never really care about (although of course the alpha twins will be back tonight, bah). The nightmare-within-a-nightmare thing was overdone, sure, but there was some good character stuff. I love the parents being in the know now ... seriously, could we maybe have the Melissa McCall and Sheriff Stilinski show? That would be a fresh take on all the teen supernatural business, to have it through the parents’ perspective. Yes please.

And there was even some silly stuff! Like the introduction of Kira and her father. I had the irresistible image of a show where the Nemeton, contrary to everyone’s expectations, did not turn out to be a magnet for evil killer beasties, just ... regular folks, albeit not quite folks, who start moving into the neighborhood. The creature from the black lagoon next door; the mermaid in your Geometry class (wheeling herself around, Lori Lemaris-style). Conflicts that would be more at home in a sitcom than a horror movie!

You know; a supernatural beacon for supernatural creatures. )

I’m sure we’ll get our usual serving of grimdark instead. So glad I have some reliably fantastic shows as well ... I really haven’t seen nearly enough meta about Elementary 3.13 yet! I had a predictable reaction )

Well, there are other things I should be drawing, probably. Hope everyone’s weathering this bizarre winter well (if you’re in this hemisphere)! <3
reflectedeve: Pearl from Steven Universe, in a tux and top hat (everything old is new again)

So yeah, that happened. (The lurker in the alleyway is Derek. And no, there was no contextual reason whatsoever for me to be wearing a towel.)

Hi internet! I have missed you. Miraculously, I am basically done with all my immediate deadlines more than a week before the end of the semester (although, you know, there's still my thesis). So I can breathe a little, sort of, and daydream about the actual fanart I'll draw on my break.

There have been a few exciting developments around lately! Every once in awhile someone on my feed retweets stupidly adorable photos of the Teen Wolf cast on the season three set! (As you can see above, my brain remains eaten!) Also, what is this about a Stiles kiss, internet? Surely there is more context than just the slightly hypnotizing gif I found myself staring at earlier?

Also I really enjoy this resource post [personal profile] brownbetty put together with werewolf lore and various ephemera. Ugh I want to make things.

On another side of things, I'm having feelings about the Star Trek: Into Darkness trailer, of course. Has anyone not seen it yet? Ah well, here, spoilers. )

Anyway, I'm sitting here drinking tea and singing along to old Christmas Vespers recordings while one of my classmates attempts to put her website together and frequently raises her voice to the internet in general. It's been a fantastic semester and generally just a really good time in my life. <3 to you all!

Okay, so it's Monday ... and it's Teen Wolf finale day, only I won't get to watch until tomorrow night. (Which probably means staying as away from the internet as I can mange for all the time in between!) Tension! Suspense! STIIIIIIIIILES! Here, have some extremely silly cracked-out fanart, courtesy of a prompt from [personal profile] ataratah.

Well, anyway, it feels good to be doing that again, even if I need to slow it down and go focus much harder on my other work, like, immediately.

In non-Teen Wolf news, this Britta vid is perfect and choked me the fuck up. Whee, VVC premieres, I can't wait to watch more. And ... that's about it, really. Life recently has included a sprained ankle, greater levels of financial competence, hanging out with someone very attractive in a sadly platonic fashion, drawing comics even smaller than usual (somewhere back in Somerville my friend A.W. is self-righteously annoyed and does not know why) and my little brother being home from France after almost a year. So all in all, pretty great. But mostly, werewolves.

So last night's MCR show was ... fucking amazing, one of the best concert experiences I have ever had. I may actually try and write up some kind of concert report later, but I need to go put myself back together a bit more first, and figure out if I expect to actually accomplish anything today. (If I put off going to the RMV until tomorrow, I am probably going to regret it, huh?)

However, I can't resist post thing the two quick pieces of art I finished to give people at the show ...

Here's an entirely goofy Killjoys/[ profile] thegaystarfish fusion-y thing:
Korse stalks Frank & Gerard at Carnival

Also, for [personal profile] tuesdaysgone, a little illustration from her amazing Killjoys prequel, The Kids From Yesterday: At the first lick of guitars, he started grinning. )

All right, now food.

Having a much-needed cleaning day; my apartment is so dirty that I've been afraid to turn the heat up, so it's been a bit like sleeping in a refrigerator the last couple weeks. (My room is on the top corner of a brick building.) Turns out that I have nearly-endless work ethic for art these days, but very little for most other things. I honestly can't regret the trade-off.

So I haven't had much to contribute to the fannish economy lately, but here's something small! Awhile back, I had this amusing mental image during a conversation with [personal profile] jjtaylor about one of her works in progress:

JJ tries to get a recalcitrant character to cooperate

The likeness isn't brilliant, but that's Brian Schechter on the left, and JJ herself on the right. She sometimes makes me want to draw an overly-meta series of comics about the relationship between writers and their work, but I'll leave it at this for now. ;)

I'll have other things to post pretty soon, but they'll have to be under rlock, as I'm putting them elsewhere (IRL even) under my real name. Sometimes I think about locking this whole journal, except for art posts ... it's something I've never wanted to do, but I've been getting twitchy again, and IDK. It seems to work really well for some people.

Oh um, hi internet! /o\ I am kind of swamped these days. I've taken on a number of original comics projects for the summer (not to mention my grad school application). So it looks like I'm just going to have even less time for fandom stuff than usual. (Although, I say this five days before Leverage comes back, so IDK. Grain of salt.)

That said, the fabulous [ profile] bandombigbang story I drew for has gone live! Only Going One Way, by [personal profile] ataratah and [personal profile] jjtaylor, is a BANDOM/DUE SOUTH CROSSOVER. Yeah. :DDD It is fucking hilarious and cracked-out and amazing, and you should totally go check it out! Not only is the main pairing adorable, but these two have a real gift for writing great secondary characters as well - in both fandoms. (Buck Frobisher, omg. :DDD)

You can see my four illustrations on LJ or on DW. How could I possibly pass up the chance to draw Gerard Way in a Mountie uniform? I had so much fun with this, seriously. It was particularly appropriate, since I started working on it during the drive to/from Canada for my brother's graduation.

Of course, now I've done fanart of Fraser and Kowalski, but not Vecchio ... which means that at some point, I'll have to make time to rectify that. ;)

On a less gleeful note, you've probably all heard about the most recent, sickening bit of fandom racefail by now? But here's a rather belated signal boost, just in case, because I think it's important to be aware of shit like this. (Link goes to the most comprehensive round-up post of the debacle, by [ profile] amazonziti.) In a nutshell: a SPN fan decided that the tragic (and ongoing) aftermath of the Haiti earthquake would make a great backdrop for her two white dudes to ~find themselves and have hot sex, piling on plenty of painful racist and imperialistic tropes along the way. Her betas, artist, cheerleaders, and quite a few commenters apparently agreed. Eurgh.

I'm sorry for both being so late and so brief on the matter ... I may try and get a post together later about some different instances of pop culture/fannish fail I've been encountering lately (much of it about race). I hope.

Holiday reveals post! (Does this feel spammy to you? Last New Years-y item, I swear.)

So this year for [ profile] yuletide, I wrote Turn, a Gunnerkrigg Court fic. [personal profile] nextian requested Kat/Annie, which happened to be exactly what I'd been hoping to write. :D I had a lot of fun reviewing the comic, and trying to invent some new crazy Forest stuff that fit with the occasion, without interfering too much with any of the unsolved mysteries in canon. I am . . . not the most dynamic ficcer ever? But I'm pretty happy, overall, with how this came out.

And since [ profile] yuletart reveals are today, here's my contribution: a Middleman/Umbrella Academy fancomic. [ profile] bluelittlepig and I matched on four fandoms, so it was a little hard to pick. ;) I went with this combination because I love wacky fanart crossovers, and because there is no Middleman fanart out there. I'm super proud of the piece: I spent two solid weeks on it! (So much Photoshop, oh my god. I barely noticed the bus crawling home at half-speed, the day before Thanksgiving.) I think I may need to start reigning in the background detail a bit, though; that large panel is kind of, er, cluttered.

I had some awesome fannish holidays . . . I'll think of them fondly while I'm wallowing through admissions season at work. /o\ I'm going to try and get those [ profile] yuletart recs up tonight, but you should really go poke through the whole comm if you get the chance. What an amazing year.

I have been a fanart machine lately, relatively speaking. :D: Here's my contribution to Sweet Charity; a one-page comic drawn for [personal profile] wistfuljane. She requested a Pete/Patrick Alice In Wonderland AU, with Pete as the Mad Hatter and Patrick as the White Rabbit. I threw in Gabe as the March Hare and Ryan as the Dormouse, to round out the cast. :) (Sadly could not figure out a way to work in Joe as the Caterpillar.)

This is safe for work. Warning: mildly anthropomorphic animal-people. *g* I guess it was only a matter of time, in this fandom.

We're all mad here. )

So thank you so much, [personal profile] wistfuljane, for bidding on me; and more importantly, for donating to charity. ♥ I am thrilled that I had the opportunity to participate in such a fantastic event. &fandom;

My brother's coming to stay with me this weekend! :D I have to spend my whole day off tomorrow cleaning the apartment. /o\

I was vaguely planning on going as Number Three for Halloween this year (well, initially I thought I'd go as the Rumour, but there's a certain allure to gothy schoolgirl clothes + domino mask, and, I kind of have some of the ingredients already). However, my roomie has suddenly come up with elaborate and enthusiastic plans for a themed Halloween party (dead authors, artists and musicians), so now I guess I'm going to have to rethink it. (I can't go as Virginia Woolf, that's far too obvious. Hrm. Also, I've gotten too curvy for effective crossdressing.)

My other roomie just made dubious faces at him and suggested that we allow people to just come as regular zombies, as an alternative.

On an entirely unrelated note: I have done fanart for [ profile] thegaystarfish! I was so excited to receive my book . . . it just sort of happened. Took awhile, but still very spontaneous. (Cut contains boy princess & Italian gentleman's son in a loving, but clothed, embrace. For values of "clothed" that involve seaweed, in Gerard's case. Also, the picture's kind of big.) For [ profile] blondiusmaximus, because she is awesometastic!

Upside-down underwater love )

If you haven't read "The Adventures of Gerard, Boy Princess of the Ocean & Frank, the Italian Gentleman's Son Who Loves Him," you really must. It is cracked-out and adorable and makes me giggle a whole lot. ♥ Fancomics are my favorite.

Ahaha, I finally finished this comic. Really, far too much time and effort for a piece of cracked-out fluff based on an extremely random whim.

See, quite awhile back, I read a conversation a couple of other fans were having about this macro. They were discussing an "aliens made them do it" scenario, only with evil coffee; Gerard would be the obvious target.

Sadly, I did not write porn based on their exchange (though I would dearly love to read some); instead, being me, I made a weird little comic.

Gerard vs. Evil Coffee )

Now I have to decide what to draw next! /o\ But first, I must run off and spend the rest of the day shepherding new students to various orientation activities. Whee.
reflectedeve: Sokka stuck in the ground, looking up at a contented mooselion cub perching on his head. (sheepish - stuck - you win)
I seem to have finished this in record time. I guess I was just that angry about the file dying last night? (Also, I've just been on fire today. I had to stop in the middle of a subway station to scribble some ideas down . . . anyway.) Talking with [ profile] sae the whole time helped. :)

Fandom: Avatar/bandom
Rating: PG
Summary: Pure fucking unadulterated crack. I don't even know, okay? You probably won't either: almost nobody is in both of these fandoms, as far as I know.
Notes: So a very long time ago I had this idea for cracked-out fanart involving Zuko and MCR and that whole "save your life" business, for [ profile] sweetvalleyslut. (This was in, IDK, January?) This eventually came of it (once I was in bandom and had more to work with.) I really have no idea why this is the first piece of Avatar fanart that I've been able to complete. I swear I'll do something more sane at some point.

on and on he carries through the fears )

Ahaha yes. On the other hand, I did some fic brainstorming with [ profile] olivia_circe today (sorry again for bugging you at work!), and um. Also. Comic anthology submission might kind of include a little tiny bit about MCR saving my life inspiration. But I have found a way to make it work! Maybe. I think.

This day was definitely the product of last night's insomnia. (Maybe that's not entirely a bad thing after all. Er.)

So I've been working on this and that, various holiday exchange projects . . . but I couldn't resist doing this as well. Even though it took a lot longer than expected!

For the last couple of weeks, [ profile] mosellegreen has been posting a series of hilarious crack!ficlets to [ profile] castlegloria. Ficlets in which Dorian Red Gloria gains superpowers. *g* I've enjoyed them greatly, and I couldn't resist adapting one of the shortest ones into a little comic.

My art isn't manga, nor is it traditional Kirbyesque superhero-style . . . I've shaded this the way I do my original indieish work. So it looks a bit weird. And I don't know if I pulled off the action, really (it's not so much my thing). But, it was so much fun to do!

Fabulousman to the rescue. )

I'll bet the 100+ people (mostly Kim Possible femslash fans) who are watching my dA account would like to kill me right about now. *g* I'll draw the pretty girls again soon enough.

[ETA:] You can now find the whole Fabulousman series (complete with work by multiple writers and artists; I don't know what's so inspiring about this concept, but!) here.
