Mostly "Waiting For Neveah" things...

Man it's been a while since I've dumped any art in this thing. Let's correct that now...


I was feeling depressed over something and was rambling about it on twitter, as I am apt to do, when octokiss asked me to draw Lorena dancing in a very successful attempt to cheer me up. And then I drew Fallon for her, also dancing, because ridiculous dance parties are more fun when you don't do them alone.


Lorena seems like the type of lady who would talk with her hands when she gets really excited about something.


Julia and Thomas, who like to be dead before any story they would be mentioned in even starts. You'd think that trait would make them Ozrin's relatives but they're actually Lorena's mom and little brother.

I have no idea who that girl on the left is.


Some random sketches that I didn't bother finishing for whatever reason. Lorena looking far too young, Maria just being completely unenthused by life, and Reed smoking because he's not good at anything else.


A handful of "Waiting For Neveah" crap! A lot of Cero and Reed being gay like they are apt to be. The whole thing with them and cigarettes is kind of weird, and I don't really know where Suri and I came up with the idea but it happens and it's gay. Also Melinda and Reed questioning each other's taste in women/men.

Oh and I drew the one straight member of the cast too.


Was staring at a bunch of Alphonse Mucha's work again and ended up with a classy looking Melinda. I think I made her hair a little too long but she looks good enough that it doesn't really matter.

IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THIS IS THE FIRST COMMENT I HAVE MADE ON THIS COMMUNITY??? THAT IS HIDEOUS. HILLARY, YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THAT.

anyway, OH MY GOSH IT IS WONDERFUL TO SEE THAT PICTURE AGAIN<3333333 I am so glad it cheered you up, but holy hell it certainly made MY day! But I have rambled enough about that (it was my desktop picture for a stretch there by the way) and I love the branching out you did in the movement and stuff, it is looking pretty good.

I also have to say that I adore the way you do traditional media. Those line qualities are amazing, and the coloring on that last picture of Melinda is stunning, as is the character design, period. I adore your character designs, as always.

The little vignettes for Waiting for Neveah are really lovely and fun. I think one of my favorite types of pictures is that little window into the story, like a hint or a clue about the characters. I feel shitty that I haven't done them in ages, and looking at yours is pretty inspiring. WHAT A LOVELY POST <3

I'VE BARELY POSTED HERE SO IT'S TOTALLY OKAY.

Aughhh you are so full of flattery. <3<3<3 I am so glad you liked it because it totally cheered me up to draw it AND I LOVE DRAWING ALL OF YOUR CHARACTERS THEY ARE GREAT. I am trying a different framework which seems to make figuring out movement a lot easier to grasp for me. I'm kind of excited about that.

I AM SO GLAD THE LINES STILL LOOK GOOD. I worry because I've had this brush pen a while and i keep worrying that the tip isn't very sharp anymore. I love working with copic markers though. I wish they weren't so expensiveeee because i'd love to have more of a range of colors to work with.

Those are my favorite kinds of pictures too, and I love to just doodle out little moments that probably wouldn't come up within the actual comic. Especially Melinda and Reed hanging out, since it is pretty much the background of all of the big fights in the story. XD I WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOU DO MORE OF THEM. YOUR CHARACTERS ARE SO ENTERTAINING!! Especially Little Elek.
