Notorious arter and reader of comics.
This is mainly an Marvel Comics/movies + Lord of the Rings art blog with a slight smattering of Game of Thrones, Parks and Recreation, Community and more.
I am always happy to answer any asks sent my way!
This blog is occasionally NSFW and NOT spoiler-free. If you ever need me to tag anything, trigger or otherwise, please let me know!
jeeze I’m sick for one day and bossman posts a bunch of pictures of himself playing with the new Kaiju figures we got in.
GIMME MY TRESSPASSER!
What I expected today: Go to work early, draw for two hours, have a lovely day catching up with bossman after the weekend, unpack new Pacific Rim figures (hopefully), and work on replying to ACE artists.
What I got: Full on celiacs attack and everything that comes with it: digestive smaug, migraines, aching joint pain, mood swings, et al.
So do I draw and draw and draw now before the arthritic pain sets in and I can’t hold my pen? Or do I wait and see how bad it gets and hope that I get some work done?
Cut for all the shit that’s been coming up against me lately. A lot of stream-of-thought rambling and bitching and getting all the bad feels out because it SERIOUSLY HELPS TO DEAL WITH THIS SHIT! Warnings for PTSD, depression, graphic descriptions of dislocation, leg injuries, surgery, and all of the other fun parts of life.
I have a stack of new followers from Jaegercon, so here is some babbling about me! Before I start the daily arting.
2. Weakness: Physical? Two fake knees. But my other weakness is trashy reality tv often about toddlers in or and tiaras.
Okay so you guys, if you’ve been following me for a while, know that I have some semi-major post traumatic issues because of ~injuries. One of the things I deal with because of this is short term memory loss. Most of the time it sucks and is confusing.
BUT TODAY WAS REALLY ROUGH AND SO I’M FORGETTING A LOT TONIGHT AND IT’S AWESOME BECAUSE I DON’T REMEMBER ANY OF THE SHIT I GOT AT THE GROCERY STORE. MY ENTIRE NIGHT HAS BEEN ‘OH MY GOD I HAVE MUFFINS WHEN DID I GET CHIPS WHAT THE FUCK WHERE DID THIS BAG OF M&MS COME FROM.’
‘Relationships are like goblins. You have to kick them a lot and practice constant vigilance so that they don’t shit all over everything you love.’
Wow that might be the most accurate thing ever. It’s true, too. I know a lot of people see Mary and I as some kind of relationship ideal, an example of how gay and nerdy can work out well. It’s INCREDIBLY flattering and just lovely, but for real, you guys see the finished product.
We argue, but we never fight, BECAUSE we argue. We talk. Even if we (mary) don’t want to, one of us (me) will force the other (mary) to talk until we’re on the same page (crazy for real insanity sex) again. You have to talk, and you have to be honest, I cannot stress that enough.
I think the reason why we work is because we dated online for a year before we even met, and babies, trust me when I tell you this, when you date someone long-distance? ALL YOU HAVE IS TRUST. There’s no better (and sadly, rarer) foundation to build a relationship on.
So things have been kind of quiet around here lately, art wise, and I am sorry for that! Most of you all know what kind of personal shit has been going down, and you’ve been very patient with my venting :)
Damn, I wish I had the time/stamina to draw!
Christ where are all of these feelings and junk coming from I WANT TO GO BACK TO BEING AN EMOTIONLESS ROBOT.
You know what I would pay all of my dollars for? Frank Cho drawing Captain Marvel. Carol in her new gear.
This picture is one of my favorite drawings of Carol ever, but like with a lot of Cho’s stuff there are parts that bug me. Her chest looks painfully bizarre and her suit is so far up between her legs that it’s going to be paying her child support for 18 years. I love Cho’s technical skill and he’s a pin-up master, but dude falls into the same traps with a lot of what he draws.
Basically what works for ‘sexy cavewoman pinup’ doesn’t work for ‘terrifying kree-infused superwoman’.
But he draws her so strong. Look at her thighs, her waist, her shoulders and her arms. She looks like she could absolutely fuck your world up, and that’s because she can. And I feel like Cho drawing her in the new suit would take away a few of the usual problems I have with his work. His superheroines look realistically strong and threatening, but the suits, dude. The suits and the yes-I-am-a-biological-woman-let-me-prove-it-by-showing-you-my-genetalia poses, I can do with out.
BASICALLY I WANT A VERSION OF THE ABOVE LINKED PICTURE BUT IN THE CAPTAIN MARVEL GEAR. Okay, enough stream of thought rambling. I was looking through his art book today, saw that picture, and thought OH GOD I LOVE THIS COVER aaawww man the leotard crotch why.
