really considering cross-posting my sketchblog to tumblr. i like how LJ allows comments but tumblr's so much easier. :\ le sigh, i dunno. i like the idea of having things just here but ennnghghh.

tumblr folks: which would you prefer? i'll probably still cross-post here, but tumblr will be as-they're-drawn and LJ more mass posts less often.

some things i drew a bit ago...

animorphs is probably my biggest forever-love fandom.

rachel and jake character study. i tried to convey their internal conflicts with their postures.
this isn't supposed to be a scene as much as two portraits side-by-side. in putting them side-by-side i wanted to show the breakdown of their relationship from two cousins to that of a commander and his best (and scariest) warrior.

i usually draw girls with fuller hips so it was actually a bit of a challenge to draw rachel with a more appropriate teenage figure.

you can see a close-up (see their eyes a little better) here: http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a40/sugaredcardboard/2011-07-10-animorphs-cl.png
the bags under their eyes is my favorite part.

more animorphs practice. not thrilled about any of these but they're all right enough!

i couldn't draw a hawk no matter how hard i tried, even copying. so i just did a loose trace of the general shapes from a photo, and then filled in the details myself. these are just self-indulgent doodles so it seriously doesn't matter. this is all i traced. honestly, i traced so i could learn -- yknow how sometimes you just can't grasp the shapes of an object? tracing is totally cool for learning, and i'm all full-disclosure here and all. i think the rules for tracing are 1) full disclosure and 2) don't line-for-line, just the aspect you're having trouble with.

one last animorphs doodle sesh for now.

i think the jake and marco relationship is one of, if not my most, favorite relationships in the series. i like this one of them because i think it captures their dynamic perfectly -- marco is almost mocking jake's authority, but within that he's showing his deep respect and, well, guy love for jake.

it's guy love between two guys.

aaaand a nakey marietta.
