So… I did more doodles of Hector and Abby.
Also been thinking more on their dynamic and I suddenly have a lot of feels about the two. I’m also starting to change my mind a bit on whether or not they’d work as a couple, but, am actually starting to lean towards “maybe they could.”
Either way, these pictures are a lot about Abby being fed up and alternatively relaxing, because she’s the person people dump way too much shit on and eventually she decides, “you know what, I’m not dealing with this anymore.” Hector is the dude who’s willing to be her shoulder to lean on and cry on when she needs it and Abby really does need that.
Meanwhile, Hector’s innocent and naive at times. He’s one of the sweetest dudes out there and I think Abby helps ground him a lot. She’s more cynical and harsh and Hector needs someone who’ll pull him out of the clouds every once in a while. I think he’s almost hesitant to dump his own shit on Abby, despite being a superhero/witch stressing him out a lot. And I think Abby would be all like, “Get your head out of your ass. You support me, I support you.” And Hector would laugh happily at that and they’d go out for Pudding (the FroYo of their town) and vent to each other. And Abby would be the one person Hector is willing to show his anger and frustration to, because she shows hers to him. And they’d end up laughing because it’s just so depressingly funny, the weight they both have on their shoulders when they’re still so young. Not to mention, people seem to think they can just dump shit on the two and don’t always think about how, that does effect Hector and Abby. I think eventually, the two both will go, “Hey, I love you guys, but I got my own life to deal with, I can’t always be the one dealing with yours.”
And in a way, I think they both sort of hide the opposite sides of themselves. Hector hides his harshness and Abby her softness and when they’re around each other, they’re more comfortable showing things they don’t show others. They’re not as able to do so with Kevin, because Kevin doesn’t get it as much. I know I haven’t talked about him that much or even drawn him here, but the feeling I get from that dude is that he’s just plain open. Comfortable with himself and doesn’t have the same kinds of pressures on him as Abby and Hector do.
While Hector and Hannah are close, since Hector sees Hannah as his sister, he doesn’t want to burden her. And Hannah, while her life isn’t a cakewalk or anything, has very different problems than Hector. So they don’t understand each other on the same level as Abby and Hector do. Hector might be able to talk to his Nana (paternal grandmother), but he doesn’t want to tell her about the whole ‘dangerous alter ego’ stuff, because she’s his family and it’d worry her. Same goes for his parents.
Abby’s got a slightly different problem with her family. She adores them, but she’s never been the open one. In fact, as the middle sibling, she’s often stuck being her other sibling’s support and it’s exhausting for her. But, her and her siblings don’t feel like they want to dump all their petty issues on their parents who already work so hard to support the family. (Her parents have good jobs, but five kids is no laughing matter financially.) And Abby sort of took on the support role to spare her parents, so she can’t go to them. And her oldest bro’s in law school, so she can’t go to him. Her other older bro needs her to keep his secrets and doesn’t really get how stressful it is for her. And she can’t go to her younger siblings since they’re little kids.
So, it kinda just ends up being her and Hector for a while.
…And wow, that was long…
Anyhow. The last thing is the weird, psuedo-medieval clothes, which was just me messing around with an aesthetic I like.
Sketch dump time!
So the topmost row is me brainstorming ideas for Camp NaNoWriMo (April). So far I got Cammie and Unnamed Gal (who I’m still figuring out a real design for) are for some reason cursed and stuck together and are now traveling together to find the cure, but they don’t really like each other all that much. Might change the idea, but ‘tis what I got for now. Also, I have an obsession with witches. I blame watching Halloween Town too much as a kid.
Second row is Hector and one of his best buds, Abigail “Abby” Washington. They’re not a couple, or at least, for now I don’t see them as one. They (along with a dude named Kevin, who’s not pictured here) have been best friends since elementary school. Hector was awkward as a kid and Kevin was very quirky/always had his head in the clouds, so they became friends. Then a year-ish later, Abby moved into town and she was this agressive, gruff, tomboy-ish gal who had trouble making friends, but Hec and Kev accepted her and the trio was inseparable since. They, along with Hannah like to go to the skatepark a lot. The trio skateboards and Hannah roller skates and they have fun.
I think Abby might be the only one of Hector’s friends to know that he’s a superhero, or at least, she’d be the first to find out. Dunno why, but I get the feeling.
Abby, as a person is highly competitive, ambitious and still just as much a tomboy as she was as a kid. She’s not the best with expressing her emotions to most people, but since Hector is compassionate and a good listener, she feels like she can talk to him.
She’s the middle child in a family of five kids (two older brothers (one in law school), a younger brother and a younger sister) and she wants to stand out. She’s hoping to be a politician when she grows up, but knows that’s going to be an uphill battle. Her family is supportive though. Currently, however, her life is getting complicated. The older brother not in law school is coming home late, sneaking out and coming up with strange injuries. Her parents think he might be on drugs and it’s causing a lot of friction between them, even if they are normally quite a loving couple. Her younger siblings are worried and confused. At first, Abby goes with her parent’s theory, but then she finds out, her brother, like her best friend, is running around playing superhero. It pisses her off and worries her, but she keeps it a secret from her family.
That’s what the picture at the bottom is about - Hector is comforting Abby after she vents to him.
The pictures of Abby in a dress and Hector in a tux is their prom. Abby is a bit uncomfortable with the dressiness, since it’s not her normal cup o’ tea, but she goes with it anyhow. Hector is her “date” because Kevin and Hannah are actually dating at this point and Hec and Abby figure they might as well go together. Kev and Hannah dating actually causes a bit of conflict within the trio, partially because Kevin seems to be spending much more time with his girlfriend and much less time with his friends. Abby’s also a bit frustrated because romancy stuff isn’t something she gets well. (I think she’s asexual and possibly even aromantic, but I ain’t sure).
The last picture is Cammie again. It’s a ref for an FMA-themed RP destronfemme and I are doing where Cammie is an Alchemist and destronfemme’s Shawn is an automail mechanic.
I’ve been meaning to post something with Hector in it for ages, but never got around to it. So, this is Hector Kingston, he’s Sarah’s cousin, though they’ve never actually met due to Hector’s mom have a big fight with her own mother.
Unlike Sarah, Hector has a very happy home life. He’s really close to both his parents and his paternal grandmother. Here, he’s hanging out with Hannah Cheng, his god sister and best friend. Her parents are his god parents and they’re like a second family to him.
Hector as a person is a really sweet and shy type of guy. He’s a bit awkward and can get over enthusiastic about things, and is a total idealist. His humour though, is oddly a bit dry.
He’s also another one of my superhero characters. He’s actually a witch, like Kiandra and Takechi and his power is “wave” manipulation, though so far he’s only got the hang of sonic waves. His superhero name is “Loud Mouth.”
One more sketch for tonight. This is (Toshiko) Takechi’s little sister, Mitsuko. They have pretty different faces since Tosh looks like her mom and Mitsuko looks like her dad. Their (deceased) older brother Makoto looked a lot like Mitsuko.
Both gals have a quirky sense of style, though Mitsuko’s got a pretty quirky personality to go along with it. She’s still got a thing for Barbies and Spongebob into her teens and likes to talk in a cryptic fashion. It’s partially because it amuses her and partially because she does have a child-like personality. Though, don’t be fooled, Mitsuko’s pretty brilliant and knows how to be manipulative… Good thing, she doesn’t use her abilities for evil. >_>
The clothing was pretty directly inspired by the tumblr user’s Minori0000 style. For a while, I’ve felt Mitsuko’s style was way, way too similar to Yuchi’s.. which didn’t work since the two are pretty different gals. Now, I have more of an idea of where to take her style.
So, concept art of a character I’m still working out. His name is Ziv Sapir (it’s Hebrew and his Dad is Jewish). So far I have that he’s a bit of a goofball and a bit of a smart ass.
I’m debating on whether or not to give him super powers, but if he does get one, it’ll be Temperature Transfer, the power to steal heat from one place and freeze it while producing fire. It’s probably a bit more versitile, but I’m still working shiz out.
Also, I’m so taking out the pockets off his costume. I went overboard. >_>
So, I sketched Sarah and Zoey in vintage dresses ‘cause I like vintage dresses and I really wanted to draw girls in red lipstick. They have totes no reason to wear them and Sarah’s not even a fan of dresses… But, uh, I drew the dresses in their favorite colors.
Anyways, I’m thinking of writing something about them for femslash february, ‘cause they’ve been like “write about us, write about us” in my head. But, I’m not sure if anyone wants to read about my superhero gal couple. So, I’m gonna post in the tag and ask if anyone minds me posting more stuff with them up later. For info on them, check here and here. I’m still gonna try and do two pieces (either drawings or oneshots or maybe a longer fic) with Sally and Molly from Sherlock, but I kinda wanna do OCs too, since I have an ego and all >_>
So, Sarah and Zoey’ve been on my mind lately… and I’ve been feeling like drawing little Sarah. So, I did a quick sketch of her.
This is her as a preteen/young teen. It’d be only a couple years after Zoey and Sarah met. (Sarah was 10-12, Zoey’d be 15-17, though they don’t get together/find romantic interest in each other until both are in their twenties.) Sarah’s grandma liked to dress Sarah up in poofy, frilly outfits. Sarah never liked them, but didn’t have the heart to tell her grandma. Also, a little Sarah had a bit of that girl=stupid mentality (but thankfully grew out of it) so she really disliked the color pink. Plus, she skipped around four grades and didn’t like standing out so much… the clothes really didn’t help.
So, I haven’t drawn fan art in ages and this is my first time drawing anything for Sherlock, but it’s Sally and Molly. I had the oddest idea pop into my head for a fic today (a Sally/Molly fic) that went along the lines of “Sherlock’s gone, Sally feels guilty and Molly knows more than she’s letting on. But, someone has to solve these seemingly unsolvable murders going on and frankly, the police are still clueless.” But, I haven’t wrote fics in ages… the last ones where for Hetalia and I barely have time…
Then this popped up on my dash and I’m taking it as a sign. Right now, I’m brainstorming and if anyone wants to give me some help, well, I’d be welcome to it. If anyone wants to read my old (and probably not really awesome) Hetalia fics, they’re posted here.
This is for Destronfemme for New Years. The guy is her character Shawn, which ya’ll can ask her about. The girl is Cammie, who’s somewhere on the blog.
They’re an adorably mushy couple, so mushily sweet that they can give you cavities. And I think that they’re one of the few couples that my characters are in where the relationship has truly smooth sailing. But yeah, they’re cute and mushy and it’s for New Years. >_>
The first of my Holiday Gifts for my friends. This is for my bestie <3 The dude is David (who, I’ve renamed James after thinking about why he chose his name some more) and the gal is my bestie’s lovely character Alena Amherst. (She’s James’ wife in universes where he’s not dating John.)
James identifies as gay, but sexuality is fluid and Alena happens to be one of the two women he does find himself attracted to. They’re a fairly mushy couple, though highly sarcastic with each other and their relationship can get complicated at times. I drew them snuggling on the floor because it seems like they do that a lot. He’s calling her Princess here, since she really likes being called Princess.
I’m not sure if their hight difference is actually clear, since Alena is 6’7 and James is 5’10, but eh… I tried. And I suck with dress patterns and dress designs. Alena likes 50s style dresses, so I hope it at least looks 50s-ish…
