I linked my [community profile] yuletart artwork here before, because the exchange wasn't anon, but hadn't reposted while the exchange was still running. It's now over, and I'm putting it here too, to keep it together properly with the other fanart.

Fandom: Avengers (Marvel Cinematic Universe)
Characters/Pairings: Maria Hill/Steve Rogers
Media used: indian ink on paper
Rating/warnings: G, none
Notes/comments: I made this for the [community profile] yuletart 2013 gift exchange for Tielan, originally posted here. For Captain America's AU outfit I referenced bits from Ryan Meinerding's First Avenger concept art and an American WWI uniform, rather than trying to come up with a Steampunk superhero costume for Steve or dressing him into something more Victorian. I couldn't quite see him as a gentleman adventurer or such.

My output this year is barely worth summarizing as I don't even need one full hand to count, but I've indexed every year since 2006.

This year there was only one piece of art, two drawbles/doodles, one icon and eight months entirely without art, compared to 2012's three pieces of art, nine drawbles/doodles, no icons and nine months entirely without art. 2011 it was six pieces of art, 36 drawbles/doodles, seven icons, and three months entirely without art. Not a good trend. Well, maybe 2014 will be better.

The [community profile] yuletart artwork I made for [personal profile] tielan has just been posted to the comm here, and since the exchange is non-anon, I can link right away. So take a look. (It's Maria Hill/Steve Rogers in a Steampunk AU, SFW.)
ratcreature: RatCreature smokes Crack (crack)
So apparently there is a trope in Clint/Coulson Avengers fandom to turn them into corgies? At least the notes to [personal profile] bethbethbeth's Third Time's...the Charm? say so -- I think I've only seen one other myself.

Anyway, I read that snippet and somehow ended up doodling the scene with Natasha trying to not see Corgi!Clint and Corgi!Coulson humping each other. IDEK.

probably NSFW though I'd like to stress that there are no dog penises visible )

Almost a year ago I offered fashion meme sketches, and then between one thing and another never got around to doing any. However, here is one for [personal profile] lilacsigil, who prompted "Mystique and reformed dress! With bloomers!"

Better late than never, right?

2012 saw a plunge in art production (insofar as you can "plunge" from a not very high previous level). It started out fairly well in January, and December was good, but nothing in-between. I even failed with the fashion meme sketches I had offered.

It's almost too depressing to index, but I've indexed every year since 2006, so: This year there were three pieces of art, nine drawbles/doodles, no icons and nine months entirely without art, compared to 2011's six pieces of art, 36 drawbles/doodles, seven icons, and three months entirely without art. 2010 it was four pieces of art, 28 doodles/drawbles, one icon, and also three months without art; 2009 five pieces of art, 20 doodles/drawbles, three icons and six months without art.

I wanted to do this for the Secret Mutant Madness fest, when I saw Yehram's prompt "Logan gets turned into a fluffy wolverine (the animal) and Charles has to keep Logan out of shenanigans." but didn't get around to it before Christmas. So now I decided to just doodle it belatedly.

Notes/comments: This is the gift I made for Papercutperfect for the [livejournal.com profile] secret_mutant exchange. Papercutperfect requested a slice of Charles' and Raven's life as children, growing up together in Westchester. I imagined that Charles would introduce Raven to making Christmas cookies.

I read this post with a chat between [personal profile] petra and [personal profile] liviapenn about Hulk with a lead binkie, which in my mind caused me to imagine a sort of Peanuts fusion with Hulk in a Linus pose, and then this weird thing happened:

ratcreature: RatCreature as memesheep. (memesheep)
I saw this meme in [personal profile] astridv's journal, and since it's always nice to see a fanart meme come by, I thought I'd participate too.

Give me a character and a time period from fashion history, and I'll draw the character in said fashion.

I changed the linked website to the wikipedia category for history of clothing, because I found the originally linked website impossible to navigate and badly designed, whereas wikipedia offers conveniently sorted links and a fair amount of nice pictures in the articles' galleries.

Fandoms on offer: X-Men, Star Trek, Merlin, SGA, HP, DC and Muppets

I've never really drawn fashion, so while this seems like an interesting challenge for me, I'm going to limit it to five people, because I'm not sure how much effort this is going to turn out. So for easier queuing I've bundled comments on my main journal on DW for this entry.

Rating/warnings: PG? (no idea what the rating is for mice making out)
Notes/comments: This an illustration for the Yuletide 2011 Pinky & Brain story Best Laid Plans by lies_d. I have to say that it is not at all easy logistically to draw these two kissing. First there's the height difference and then the muzzles get in the way too. Also, this is supposed to be the photo of them that ends up on Facebook in the story and originally wanted to format this to appear as if posted there, like a screenshot with the website logo and such, but I do not have an account and don't really know how the pages where photos are displayed look for the users. I tried finding screenshots of Facebook walls but they don't seem to show photos, just comments? So now you just have to imagine it there.

Compared to 2010 there was a slight uptick in productiveness. This year I made six pieces of art, 36 drawbles/doodles, and seven icons, though depressingly there were three months entirely without art. In comparison 2010 it was four pieces of art, 28 doodles/drawbles, one icon, and also three months without art; 2009 five pieces of art, 20 doodles/drawbles, three icons and six months without art. Maybe at some point I'll have a year where I can do one of those memes where you need to put in one preview picture for every month.

Four more people commented on the drawble post I made last week:
four images )

In unrelated good news, Leo's weight loss seems to have stopped or at least slowed since Friday (he moves around while I want to weigh him which increases inaccuracies), and he's been a little livelier and ventured out of the cage more the last evenings, climbing and checking out all his favorite spots instead of just sitting in the cage like a picture of misery. So I hope that he maybe wants to hang in there a little longer despite having lost his brother and last rat company.

Only two people prompted me for drawbles when I offered Thursday:

I'm not sure whether anyone is interested, seeing how the art itself got very little reaction (only two comments and one kudo so far *sulk*), but since I took the pictures of the in-between stages, I might as well post them.

many images of the work in progress )

Characters/Pairings: Methos, mutant baby
Media used: acrylics on paper, original ca. 35x45cm
Rating/warnings: G, none
Notes/comments: This is an illustration for [personal profile] basingstoke's awesome Highlander/X-Men crossover WIP Unalienable. Among many other things happening, Methos takes care of a mutant baby, carrying her around in a sling: "Methos makes a sandwich with the baby in a sling on his hip. [...] Baby's skin has flushed up bluer now that she's feeling better. Her eyes are a bright, piercing pink. Her eyelashes and eyebrows are thick and orange but she doesn't seem to have any hair on her head or body, not even the normal fine down of a girl's skin. She looks garish and strange."

Characters/Pairings: Erik Lehnsherr, Oscar the Grouch, Fluffy, Slimey
Media used: pencil doodle
Rating/warnings: G, none
Notes/comments: Another scene from the XMFC/Sesame Street crossover in my head: Erik would visit Oscar's trash can, and maybe he and Oscar would bond over their misanthropic outlook. But the trash can would also feel really odd to Erik's metal sensing abilities, because it is larger inside than out, and Erik just can't figure how this structure works, and maybe it puts him a bit on edge, when the metal in his environment feels wrong. He probably wonders whether escaping through whatever kind of dimensional anomaly leading into "Grouchland" this is, is the monsters' backup plan should humans decide to round them all up (because of course the first thing Erik noticed, once he resigned himself to Charles dragging him into sets of singing monsters, is the complete lack of security and defensible positions).

Media used: pencil doodle
Rating/warnings: G, none
Notes/comments: A while ago one of [personal profile] cereta's Grading Hell Theater posts prompted me to think about the X-Men characters visiting Sesame Street. Ever since I've been thinking about the many awesome opportunities this crossover would bring. I mean, Sesame Street started 1969, a few years after the events of XMFC, so in the intervening years I imagine some ending fixit happened for Charles & Erik (and by extension the X-Men and the Brotherhood) or at least a temporary truce. Meanwhile with Charles trying to advance his cause of peaceful coexistence with humans, he'd manage to get Sesame Street to promote mutant acceptance alongside other diversity, and would be enthused about the opportunity to guest star with his students. (Of course in this universe the muppets are real, and working in the entertainment industry or something like that.)

Erik has no idea how exactly he got roped into the project, but it probably started with Charles arguing the importance that mutants who can't pass also appear, so that got the Brotherhood involved (so Hank wouldn't be the token non-passing mutant), and it all went downhill from there. And in the end because he can't refuse Charles anything, Erik somehow finds himself appearing in sketches with Super Grover featuring capes, helmets, and the letter "M" which after all is for so many awesome words as metal, monster and Magneto... (I'm not sure when Super Grover first appeared, but he was introduced later there just has to be some canon bending, because the opportunity of these two is just too good to pass up.)

Notes/comments: This is the fifth in my magical creatures series, a gnome & horklumps encyclopedia plate this time. The canon description in Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them (p. 21) is "The Horklump [...] resembles a fleshy, pinkish mushroom covered in sparse, wiry black bristles. [...] It spreads sinewy tentacles rather than roots into the ground to search for its preferred food of earthworms. The Horklump is a favourite delicacy of Gnomes but otherwise has no discernible use."
