I know you’re sick of my weird mermaid-like things by now, but…

Okay, so last month, I was feeling a little bored. I had no idea what to draw, but I started drawing anyway. Eventually, I came up with this vaguely feminine creature that had octopus tentacles instead of hair, blue, rectangular pupils, and blue, slightly large lips. Oh, and did I mention, she’s also dripping wet.

This was the process of drawing her.

First pencil…

…Then traced over with ink pen…

…and finally, colored in with marker-pens.

 

Since then, this octopus girl has oddly captured my imagination. I then began to draw her everywhere-she’s found her way into my Spanish notebook, on the edges of data sheets for Science class, a few sticky notes, and most importantly, my sketchbook. I’ve drawn, inked, and colored her twice more since the first drawing. Both times, I’ve dressed her in a Car Seat Headrest shirt (with the album art of Twin Fantasy) and faded, ripped jeans for no apparent reason. I’ve also added some song lyrics to the drawings.Screen Shot 2017-10-14 at 9.21.40 AM.png

I did this one just last weekend. The lyrics are from what recently became my new favorite song, “Beautiful Freak” by Eels.

I finished this one yesterday. This one’s got some lyrics from “Everything Now” by Arcade Fire.

 

I’ve yet to see where this octopus girl will take me next, but it should be interesting.

I can’t think of any other creative ways to say that I have a bunch more fan arts

So yeah…

My drawing amount has slowed slightly after my last fan arts post (See Fan arts, fan arts, everywhere), but I’ve still got a bunch that I’m super psyched to show you guys! Here you go!

I drew this while in Vail last weekend among the beatiful aspen trees. What I’ve sort of surmised is that this is some sort of tree-elf-fairy thing. I still really don’t know.

Fan arts, fan arts, everywhere

I’ve had quite a productive summer as far as fan arts go. In just about four months, I’ve filled up almost half of my sketchbook (OOPS). Maybe that’s just because I crank out drawings like a flippin’ machine, or maybe it’s because I had way too much time on my hands. But anyway, here are EVEN MORE fan arts for you to see! 😁

Mermaid (or something): Late night drawings and biological analysis (sort of)

(Well that  was one heck of a weird title…)

So last night, after watching the first two Hunger Games movies (which were awesome), I had a little time before I had to go to bed. So I decided to draw. Normally, I draw fictional characters about 75% of the time, but I couldn’t think of anyone to draw. But eventually, this squirmed its way out of my head and onto the page of my sketchbook:

I still have no idea what prompted it, but I love it anyway.

As I said on my Instagram post, I knew that this wouldn’t end with just one drawing. I mean, HOW COULD IT? I mean, LOOK AT THAT MERMAID THING!

…Mermaid thing???

 

{CUT TO THIS MORNING}

And then this happened…

BEHOLD!

THE MERMAID (OR SOMETHING)!!!

IMG_9491.jpeg

I had a lot of fun drawing and designing this mermaid. There were a few points I definitely wanted to discuss (here comes the “biological analysis” part), so here goes!

DISCLAIMER: Though I have been a total zoology nerd basically since I could read, I am not completely knowledgeable on this topic. Some of this information might not be completely true, just to let you know. 

In general, I wanted this mermaid to look more fishlike than human, so there are a lot of things that I took from various fish species to piece her together. For example:

-The ears. Most fish do have ears, but they are very small and different from ours. They use not only their ears but their lateral lines to sense sounds in the water.

 

FishEar.jpg

-The stripes. When I initially drew the mermaid the first time, she was very colorful, with horizontal stripes. I based her off this general image I had in my mind of a tropical fish of similar color and pattern, but when I googled such a fish, it didn’t exist. (**** you, imagination…) But, I did find a fish similar to my vision, albeit with horizontal stripes as opposed to vertical ones.

-The mouth. Realistically, if I were to steer in the far fishier direction, the mouth would probably be bigger, and the lips wider. The teeth were a rather confusing point, because when I googled “fish teeth”…

…well…

Let’s just say that you should never google such things. *shivers*

So I just went with small teeth.

-As far as the nose goes, I just put little slits.

-The head fin and tail, I discovered, are not only similar to each other, but similar to leaves of kelp (which the mermaid’s leg band things and dress are made of). I suppose this could possibly be a form of camoflauge. Maybe this mermaid lives in a kelp forest.

-Lastly, I’ve been kind of in self-debate about this for a little while, but I can’t decide whether my version of mermaids would lay eggs (I imagined them like shark or dogfish eggs-HEY, PEOPLE SOMETIMES CALL THOSE MERMAID’S PURSES! MAYBE I’M ONTO SOMETHING!) or if they would give birth to live young, like mammals. Either way, this mermaid has no visible breasts, which would be a mammalian trait. I’m still unsure about that. I suppose either one would work, but…hmm… *strokes imaginary goatee in thought*

 

Well, that just about wraps it up. Thank you for reading!

EDIT: The mermaid now has a name (or nickname), thanks to my dad: Abigail Sapien (like Abe Sapien) 😉

They’re back…

This is Me From Now On (Reprise)

(See This is Me From Now On for original drawing)

Hey guys!

So yesterday, I was thinking of making a new logo/look/thing/whatever for Neon Cheetah, and I came up with…two. I’ve drawn the Neon Cheetah character in various drawing of mine, but these were more intended as ones for things like profile pictures. These were the two I came up with.

Screen Shot 2017-07-28 at 9.13.03 AM.png

This one was more just for kicks and giggles. Pretty fun to draw.

Screen Shot 2017-07-28 at 9.13.12 AM.png

This one was my favorite of the two, which, as you might see, is now my profile picture and stuff. Like it?

Well anyway, happy Friday, and be sure to check out some of my other posts (book reviews, fan arts, etc.)!

You get a fan art! You get a fan art! EVERYONE gets a fan art!!!
