So another Avatar OC concept for Hou Tian. Her name is Minxia and she’s a member of a (forum specific) group called the Jade Shark, basically proto-equalists during Aang’s time. Her backstory is still vague, but basically she was a herbologist who’s village got burned down by the Fire Nation during the war. After that she depressed, turned to drugs and fell in with the Jade Shark. She also has a four year old daughter.
While she looks intimidating, she’s actually a pretty laid back person. She can get awkward, and stuttery and has a sort of silly sense of humor. When she gets excited, she can be very energetic. But, despite this, she has a tendency to appear broody.
Originally, I was going to make her a guy… but I decided with girl instead.
So… another Avatar/Korra OC for Hou Tian. Her name’s Tikaani and I’m currently working on her app. As a child she was sold to a gang (The Red Monsoons) and rescued by the cops as a teen. It drove her to become a cop.
Most of the time, Aani seems like a relaxed, joking and charismatic woman, but set her off and she turns sharp, biting and angry. She also believes the ends justify the means and will ‘bend’ rules to achieve justice. Tikaani has a lot of empathy and sympathy for those who’ve been treated unjustly, but is also easily blinded by her passion. It takes a lot of Tikaani to admit she’s wrong. She’d rather stubbornly dig her grave than turn back once she’s made a decision.
She’s also very short (4’10) and hates being called ‘Tick.’
Mako’s player (Tsura on HT) and I are planning on making Mako and Aani cop partners. We might also make it so that Mako had a crush on Aani at one point, but she turned him down because he’s only 18 (she’s 27), has a girlfriend and is a man. (Aani’s not into men.)
She also might end up having a less than healthy romantic subplot with an equalist. >_>
…I am kinda excited.
Long ago, the beautiful and wise Queen Fei ruled over the Ember Kingdom, but tragedy struck when she one day just disappeared. The citizens of the Ember Kingdom, desperate to get their queen back called across the universe to earth and summoned the reincarnations Ribbon Warriors, three young women by the names of Tega, Paine and Emiko.
Tega was the Warrior of Hope, blessed with fans that could call upon the wind.
Paine was the Warrior of Determination, blessed with daggers that could call upon ice.
Emiko was the Warrior of Love, blessed with arrows that could call upon light.
Together, only they could rescue the Queen Fei. But, as the young women adjust to their new roles as warriors, something more sinister lurks in the background that would not only determine the fate of Ember, but the entire universe.
So… I’ve been on this Avatar the Last Airbender/Legend of Korra (both Eras) RP forum called Hou Tian for a few months now, drew a few pictures for it, but never posted them and I figured I might as well post some here.
Basically, I wanted to draw pretty girls in pretty dresses and so I decided to draw some of the girls from Hou Tian here. They’re supposed to be magical girls, though, to be 100% honest, the only magical girl show I ever watched was Sailor Moon back when I was in grade school. Still I LOVE the pretty clothes. (And someday, when I feel like going through a show marathon, I might watch Utena, because it sounds like my cup o’ tea.) Anyways…
Emiko is my character, a nonbender during Korra’s time who works at a bakery called Ember Bread Baker. Her boss, Fei, a sassy fire bender, got kidnapped by one of the local gangs. Fei belongs to a played who goes by Painted Lady. Tega (belonging to a player called Meg) is one of her coworkers, a former Kyoshi warrior and fellow nonbender who is leaving for Kyoshi island soon to aid another one of my characters, Yukiko Tsukino, a nonbender’s right activist/politician get the aid of the Kyoshi warriors in her cause. Paine, who belongs to a player named Nuti, is an amnesiac gangster water bender who is temporarily working at (and soon to be leaving) Ember Bread Bakery who has more attitude than sense.
And P.S. Anyone who RPs and likes Avatar/Korra should totally join Hou Tian, it’s a really friendly place and everyone is chill/awesome/creative and if you like to write epically long posts you can and if you prefer shorter posts, that’s cool too and no one’s judgy about it and what not. Basically it’s a great place to RP
I’ve been watching Rent (the recording of the 2008 Broadway show) on loop for the past week… so I had the urge to draw fanart. It’s Joanne Maureen. I was going to draw all the main characters… but I got lazy, so it’s just these two. Their designs are most strongly based of the 2005 movie since that’s the one I saw first, but there’s also some inspiration from the 2008 show. I kinda thought they were a cuter couple in the 2008 show, possibly because their relationship got more time than in the 2005 movie.
This is just a doodle of my and destronfemme's characters hanging out. The two dudes are hers, the guy in back is Shawn, who's been posted here before. The other dude is his twin, Sunny.
The gal with Shawn is Cammie, who’s also been here before and in front is Bridget. Bridget’s story’s a bit complicated, so I don’t feel like going into it right now… but she’s drawing with Sunny (or maybe working on a small engineering project) while Cammie and Shawn are being mushballs. They’re all meant to be teens here. And yes, Bridget does have a gun in on her thigh.
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.
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.”
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.
