    Oh, and I forgot to put the dA link for Garrandé (previous artwork): http://fav.me/d4ijrsh
    Not that it's any larger or anything, I just like to whore views.

    Anyway, just to clarify - we're just having fun here with the gender jokes. Contrary to Dionesiist, none of my existing characters are actually shemale.

    Lastly, I understand dA can be a bit messy to navigate, especially if you don't use it yourself, so I'm linking the journals in the order you should read them here, for those of you who are interested in knowing a little bit of background story/character description.

    http://fav.me/d4fi95s - Hammath's World
    Introduces the world, or setting anyway, as well as the characters Hammath, Amber and Mya.

    http://fav.me/d4fyidj - Sinclair's Company
    Introduces the three most dominant factions on Earth, and provides a little information about Major Sinclair, Sandra, Cassandra, Sands, Harris and Brett.

    http://fav.me/d4ihcdz - Garrandé's Mercenaries
    Introduces Garrandé, Roscoe, Cherise, Eve and Marv.

    I know you enjoy laughing at my disastrous writing skills, but I would really like some opinions and tips, if you can spare the time. I would like to be able to convey a character textually as well as visually in a smooth manner. Technically, this is not the place, but nobody else is posting anyway, and writing is as much art as, uh, art. Fuck, that didn't sound convincing at all.

    And yeah, I know, I do badass art because not doing badass art would make my epeen shrink. Can't have that.

    What is there to be good at?

    You're trying to convey your characters, world and ideas?

    I think you do that perfectly, I love your informal approach - whether intentional or not - it allows me to read, nod my head and say that's cool/I agree/disagree rather than ouch.. My head hurts which tends to be the case with many self-proclaimed writers, they seem to forget the person reading their briefs doesn't have the first clue about their world, your comparisons and suggestive stance are quite the asset as they allow people to build up a familiar picture and adapt that into the one your trying to display (in their mind), which is always easier.. It's like the difference between adding an extension to a house or building one from scratch.

    Oh, thank you, I suppose TWIF is just overreacting! :3
    And yes, the casual, informal approach is intentional, though I probably wouldn't be able to do it any other way. I dislike writing dry texts as much as reading them.

    No, we all know that grey simply has a contrary opinion to me on writing.
    Your writing isn't WRETCHED. Its mildly BAD, thats all.
    I could point out details if you want?

    And my problem is not with informality.

    Do your worst, don't be subtle about it, I prefer to hear your honest opinion. It can't do anything else than give me a broader perspective of what I can and should do, anyway. Any and all criticism helps, the harsher the better.

    Call it Hammath's boring and outrageously angry twin. Because Hammath certainly wields no hammer, nor does he sport such a face or have sausages as replacement for fingers. Still, I had to touch it up quickly before handing it in, the last version was a bit rough.

    Same sad case here with butchering, although not as bad. I put myself in a position where I had four hours to finish Hammath and Mya both, so they ended up pretty rushed and without any plan of what do to other than making it look somewhat finished.

    Yeah, I don't know. Had to come up with an imaginary product and make an advertising poster. Didn't do the product or advertising so well, but the painting isn't horrible. :3

    This one isn't actually new, but I found it lying about and I figured I'd post it as well. It's a WIP that I stopped working on some time ago, like last year or the one before. Might pick it up and work some more on it. Well aware the face is skewed and proportions are out the window.

    Why does she have flaps on both side of her lower leg part? I mean, just seems in the way. Talking about the flap which is inwards.

    actually it makes more sense than you think..

    Fish can retract their fin as they want, so she could only use the one from the outside while swimming... even tough it would be hard for her to swim properly because it wouldn't be quite balanced. Beside, to extend the idea, what if she brokes one of her leg? she can still manage to swim! :D and I'm pretty sure it's more than usefull du to that :D

    Most of what I've been doing lately is on paper, so I'll get some digitally remastered sketches and whatnot up soon.
