Shit let's post an art dump here.

And I'm way more active updating art on my Tumblr account. For the wary, my personal blog is 99.9% online art, occasional text posts, and even rarer reblogs. So it's mostly my own art and not much else. http://skulldog.tumblr.com/

Answering the world building questions slowly, with art!
You can find the full list here: http://deaddogdreaming.livejournal.com/39744.html

11.Who is the first character you remember creating? If you still have this character, how much have they changed?


I drew A LOT of silly, one off designs that I thought were characters, but the first one I actaully created back story, and wrote a short story for was this one. A species of intelligence big cat, named Pandora.

The story was pretty bad, but still had some elements I think were pretty unique for someone in 6th grade. Most of the focus was on Pandora, the magical chosen one that would bring both horrible down fall, then absolute redemption to her people. The big cat race lived along side humans in a post apocalyptic world, were kind of hated and only kept to an abandoned train yard. There were some 'evil cats' that worked for a gang too I think.

I'm pretty certain that the original 40 pages of writing + art for this story is still in my parent's possession. Someday I will end up getting this back, and I'll see how close I got Pandora's design. I think she MIGHT have had a moon and star symbol on one shoulder, or something equally cliche.

How has this character changed? Well, I haven't drawn her since I lost interest in the story back in early 7th grade. I dew this doodle for the frist time in many, many years, trying to remember the design in full.

corvus_animus draike sakuranym_kit and vogeldrache so far. More coming. Yes I have been neglecting sketch work, mostly due to comic work taking up most of my free art times lately.

Some long over due sketch dumps. I feel like I should do some character text vomit with it, but odds are I'll get tired after posting the URLs, and not do that.

Three character sketches, trying hard not to make up any story for them yet. I plan to use them for a spontaneous project with the upcoming 24 hour comic.

Also, should I post the 100+ images I did for Art Slam here?

I've been so busy putting together a book of sketches, I haven't sat down to scan the stuff I doodled during the last two weeks.

So let's dump this stuff.

Two digital sketches for future paintings.

There's a lot of story stuff mixed it with all that, but I'm too tired to pick it out in more details.

Sketch duuump.


I had a day of Tumblr fame, it was scary and flooded my dashboard with nothing but messages. I hid.

Okay then there's some Homestuck doodles, which may be sort of spolier-y if you aren't caught up. Fair warning, Jen don't look!

Whatever, did colors instead of packing.

Leaning toward using either the orange, or the gray markings.
