Little Spoon – mildly NSFW

 Because Tumblr keeps eating my brain.

I think this is the third fluffy snuggle drawing I’ve done of these two… possibly fourth.

Why must they continue to be adorable?

Avengers Gender-bend – Bucky / Winter Soldier

Leave a comment

Janine Rebecca ‘Bucky’ Barnes has been best friends with Christine Rogers since they were kids. One never went without the other. Not even 80 years into the future.

AvengerGenderbend-Winter-Soldier

 

Bucky has always been protecting her smaller, scrappier best friend. Always. Ever since she realized Christine was never going to learn to keep her damned mouth shut and would just keep right on picking fights with everyone and anyone who caused trouble.  She couldn’t stop Chris from getting into trouble, and she couldn’t just let the dumb broad get her rear end kicked for the 80th time, so she started intervening.

Fortunately, Bucky has never been particularly small, and she had enough stubborn to match even Rogers. She grew like a weed into a gangly 11 year old amazon while Christine was still a delicate, freckly little thing, and just kept right on growing. Between fishing her best friend out of street fights and taking odd jobs wherever she could get them, Bucky grew up tall and strong, and she could whip the tar out of most of the boys on their street before she turned 18. She took work in a factory when war loomed, and found out she was good at it.

Bucky is all curves and muscle. She’s gorgeous and she knows it. Christine can’t remember at time that Bucky has ever once paid for her own drinks, and she has a different fella on her arm every week.

The draft can’t touch Bucky, but after Pearl Harbor, she shows up in a uniform, and Chris knows, that’s it. Bucky’s going to war without her, and there’s not a damned thing she can do to stop it.

Christine has just finished bombing out entertaining a very unfriendly audience when she’s informed that they’re all that’s left of Bucky’s unit. True to form, she’s in a commandeered plane on a highly unsanctioned rescue mission within the hour.

She rescues Bucky from that table, and she brings her out of the worst of the fighting, but bucky is never quite the same. Her easy smile is gone. She doesn’t bother with fixing her hair, and she doesn’t much care if the fellas are looking or not. When she falls from the side of a train in a mission gone wrong, Christine follows soon after, crashing a plane into arctic ice. She’s never let Bucky go anywhere without her, and she’s not about to start now.


“But I knew her…”


Bucky likes the way Nathaniel fits under her arm. Likes the small crooked smile he saves just for her. Likes that he understands the awful things they made her do, the guilt she’s always going to feel for it, and doesn’t sugar-coat things like Chris does. That he’s been where she is, and he made it out the other side. If Nate could do it… surely she can too.


 

Mini-ficlet, because being female does change a small selection of things about her, but also largely because I felt like it :D

 

More art goodies will be coming. Stay tuned.

 

Avengers Gender-bend – Black Widow

1 Comment

Nikita Romanova was once a promising ballet student, before he was forcibly recruited to the KGB and turned into an assassin and spy…

AvengerGenderbend-Black-Widow2

Naturally somewhat short and lean, Nikita relies primarily on his agility and subterfuge, as well as his good looks, to get what he needs. That said, don’t mistake him for just another pretty face. He’s still absurdly flexible and strong from years of ballet training and subsequent years of military training. He has more than once performed what Celeste refers to as his ‘choke a bitch’ move – which mainly involves strangling your target to death with your thighs.

AvengerGenderbend-Black-Widow

Generally: don’t get on his bad side. He’ll kill you and make it look goooood while he does it.


Nikita goes by the name “Nathaniel Romanoff” now, and just tries to keep the past in the past as much as he can.

He has a sort of dysfunctional vaguely mother/son relationship with SHIELD director Samantha N. Fury. Even if he’d never admit it, he thinks of Samantha like family.
Celeste Barton is his closest friend and one of the few who knows for certain that Nikita is actually bisexual, but he’s also recently struck up an unlikely relationship with Christine Roger’s old friend, Janine ‘Bucky’ Barnes.  The two of them make a terrifyingly intense, but adorable couple.


 

More genderbends and other goodies are on the way. Stay tuned :D

Avengers Gender-bend – Hawkeye

Gender-bending goodness continues with Hawkeye!

 

AvengerGenderbend-hawkeye

Do not piss off Celine Barton. Just don’t. She’s got an arrow with your name on it.

More Gender-bends will be coming, as well as more celebrity portraits, more elemental ladies, and more historically awesome ladies (assuming people send me more prompts!)

(Boy-howdy these are fun, but the costumes are frustratingly detailed :p)

Ticklish

Apparently the Winter Soldier is ticklish…

She files that away for later reference.

For some reason, every time I draw a couple, it turns into these two dorks. Marvel, why do you devour my brain so?

Cirque sure is pretty…

Leave a comment

Based on this lovely photo.

Oh… Cirque, you have such pretty pretty costumes and makeup. I could watch you all day :)

cirque-face

This was partly because I was looking at Cirque photos and admiring the pretty, and partly as practice drawing from an actual face. I’m slowly getting less and less sucky at that :D

Stay tuned!

Palette Meme – Wolverine

Leave a comment

More Memetastical goodness :D

This time, it’s Wolverine feelin’ pretty in Palette#5.

wolverine-palette-meme-5

This one was a little tough because the colors provided are all fairly low contrast, but I think he came out alright anyways.

Still accepting suggestions and requests for this meme, and still accepting commissions :D

Stay tuned for more goodies :D

 

**FAIL, I keep forgetting this part :/ – Pose reference: here. **

Palette Meme – Wonder Woman – minor redesign

Leave a comment

Meme-time continues, this time with Wonder Woman in palette 10!

wonderwoman--palette-10

 

I did a minor redesign of her costume, because the spandex bathing suit thing just always seemed… well silly to me. I tried to keep it a little more practical with pants, actual  metal armor, and a ponytail, instead of just a giant poof of hair everywhere. (If I were going REALLY practical, she’d have it braided, but I didn’t want to change it THAT much, so she’d still be recognizable.)

I also very nearly didn’t shade her skin, because the red color made her look painfully sunburned and the purple seemed too harsh at first. Looking at it now, though, I like the dramatic effect :D

These things are pretty challenging, but they’re great fun :D

AS A REMINDER: I am taking suggestions for character/palette combos, and I do also take commissions, if anyone is so inclined to throw money at me :D

More shinies will be coming at some point Saturday or Sunday, but I’ll be out of town for the Fourth of July weekend starting tomorrow morning, so I hope you can all be patient until then :D

 

**Almost forgot: Pose reference.**

Palette Meme – Angel and Collins – RENT

Leave a comment

Ah…. these two are so damned adorable, I just can’t stand it :3

Angel---rent--palette-3

 

Presenting: Angel Dumott Schunard and Tom Collins in palette #3. <3 <3 <3
(Here’s the RENT wiki, for the uninitiated)

These two… they are the heart of RENT for me. I enjoy Mimi and Roger. I find Joann and Maureen interesting.  Mark is… there.

But these two just moved me so much. There was a really palpable tenderness between them, this genuine playful affection. I could watch them interact for hours. They are both living on borrowed time and they just seem to make so much of what they have.

I bawled like a baby when Angel died, and several dozen viewings later, I STILL do, every single time.

Now, if you’ll all excuse me, I need to go cry over “Will I Lose My Dignity” for a while and go to bed. :D

 

– Oopsy! I almost forgot to link to the original meme! Here ya go :D

Palette Meme – Punk Storm

Leave a comment

More memetastic goodness :D

I was still feeling creatively listless last night, so I did up one more character – this time in palette 13.


 

I do love me some Punk!Storm…

storm--palette-meme-13

I decided pretty quickly that I wanted to draw Storm, partly because she’s one of my favorite X-men characters (up there with Wolverine and Gambit). But it’s too easy to draw her floating around looking majestic, because she ALWAYS looks like that.

I wanted to draw Punk Storm, because the idea of this stoic, reserved weather goddess suddenly sporting a mohawk, leather pants, and gauged ears is just too awesome. I like to think it’s her ‘rebellious college kid’ phase or something.
The only problem is that 80’s punk looks a bit… well 80’s.  Storm wears it reasonably well, but it looks kind of ridiculous, so I gave her a little bit of a modern update. Lose the spikes, lose the collar, graphic t-s and leather pants.

I ALMOST gave her tattoos, but decided against it, to keep the image from getting too muddy.


 

More shinies will be coming soon, though I’m not sure if it will be a historical lady, and elemental lady, or another meme. We’ll see how my creative juices are flowing :)

**Well I fail at spelling today. Massive typo now fixed**
