ratcreature: RatCreature smokes Crack (crack)
I couldn't help myself when I came across Te's post and somehow ended up doodling Tim turned into a lesbian centaur. Yeah. IDEK.

Fandom: DC Comics
Characters/Pairings: Robin III (Tim Drake)
Media used: mixed media (ink, acrylic paint, chalk pastels, razor blade)
Rating/warnings: G, none
Notes/comments: This turned out rather more mixed media than planned, due to me trying to salvage the image from the completely blotched state that was the result of a supposedly water-resistant ink being quite soluble in specific circumstances after all. So it looks rather different from what I imaged, and not nearly as nice as a promising pre-blotch inbetween state did (which I unfortunately didn't scan), that had more texture and scratched gradients, but the black ink dissolved when I tried adding the color highlights and thus the ink ran into them. Also as usual the scanner didn't actually scan the colors as they are on the paper, though I tried to correct it as best as I could to compensate for that piece of color blind crap. Um, well, I usually try not talk this much about everything that went wrong (it doesn't give a good audience bias) but this was a very frustrating evening, and I can't help the venting.

Fandom: DC Comics
Characters/Pairings: Tim Drake (Robin III)/Kon-El (Superboy), vaguely during their Young Justice era
Rating: PG? (kissing, but no nudity)
Media used: Wacom tablet and GIMP
Warnings: none
Notes: I tried drawing completely with a tablet for the first time, which turned out to be much harder than expected, so for practice I started drawing with a photo as guide for posture and then added costumes, changing hair and faces a bit and such, rather than sketching directly without tracing anything. The underlying photo base I started from was this gay wallpaper.

Characters/Pairings: Tim Drake/Robin III
Rating: G
Media used: Pencil drawing, inked and colored in GIMP
Warnings: None
Notes: [livejournal.com profile] thete1 asked for "creaky, leathery, heavily-armored Robins" similar to Bermejo's art in [livejournal.com profile] illustrate_me. Unfortunately I can't draw well enough to emulate the style, but I did my best to make Robin's costume look heavy and armored rather than spray-painted on. If you are interested in the unfinished stages, you can also look at the initial pencils, and the finished, but uncolored lineart.

Here's the pencil drawing I posted yesterday cleaned up and colored in GIMP. It's Tim as Avatar from [livejournal.com profile] thete1's Intimates series. All kinds of critique/comments are welcome.

I totally suck at costume design. I've tried like forever to produce a good visual of Tim as Avatar from [livejournal.com profile] thete1's Intimates series, and it's been incredibly frustrating. More than once I wished I could just go with Jason's mocking and draw him as Condom Boy and be done with it (btw back in December when I drew that scribble as a result of being totally frustrated with goggles and what not, I happened to be in the underground and of course the little girl next to me had to choose that moment to stand up on her seat and look at my sketchbook...).

Anyway, I'm still not happy with the costume but I decided to just post the pencils I liked best so far and settle for that. I'll post a colored version soon(ish).

I've colored the pencil drawing I uploaded last night. I don't have a lot of practice with computer coloring and it kind of shows, but I like the illustration still better in this version. In case you missed the explanation yesterday, this is fanart for [livejournal.com profile] monkeycrackmary's SW/DCU fusion story Flamebird, showing Tim as Jedi Padawan.

ETA: The LJ picture servers are still a bit obnoxious/slow because of the recent move. If the image doesn't load for you, you can look at it at my site too.

Ever since I read [livejournal.com profile] monkeycrackmary's Batverse/Star Wars fusion story Flamebird, my head is populated with images of the Batboys in Jedi attire, performing Force aided acrobatics, of Bruce and Jason fighting crime in Kryptonian-like attire on the run down lower levels of Coruscant and maybe even in sleazy space cantinas, and a lot of stuff horribly difficult to draw. Obviously the story needs to be illustrated by someone with mad skillz, or, you know, at least someone able to draw humans rather than someone preferring to stick with big-nosed cartoons.

I don't think I'll draw Coruscant cityscapes populated with superheroes anytime soon (but someone definitely should!), but I did try to draw Tim as a Padawan. The Jedi look/outfit is shamelessly drawn based on a screencap showing young Obi-Wan Kenobi, btw (because I suck and can't draw this kind of thing without such references).

Also I'll probably try to color the pencils eventually, to get some practice using my newly acquired tablet, but that might take some time, and meanwhile I thought I could post the pencil drawing as it is now, kind of like a WIP thing.

Comments/crit/whatever are of course welcome.

ETA: LJ wouldn't show the picture when I tried to use the version I uploaded to their picture server, should be fixed now.
