Avengers Gender-bend – Black Widow

Leave a comment

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


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.


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

1 Comment

Gender-bending goodness continues with 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)

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…

Based on this lovely photo.

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


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.


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!



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



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…


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**

Palette Meme – Mako Mori

Leave a comment

This meme has been going around Tumblr lately, and since I had major creative laziness (aka artblock) tonight, I figured now was a good time to play with it :)

I just realized this evening that I haven’t ever drawn Mako. This is a travesty that I have now finally corrected :D

This is done in palette #1. Using ONLY the color swatches provided was pretty challenging, but it was fun and a refreshing challenge :)

I may do a few more if I can’t get my brain to behave itself. We shall see :D

Insomnia — a post-Winter Soldier mini comic

Leave a comment

(From this #imaginebucky prompt)

--scroll down for image, below the ficlet–

They all have demons that keep them awake. Some are worse than others, but no one is immune. Natasha has had longer than some of the others to learn to cope, but there are still nights that she jerks upright in bed, soaked in cold sweat, choking on the screams that she learned to tamp down years ago.
She knows better than to try to go back to sleep on nights like this.

Normally Natasha goes to see Clint on the bad nights. He’s a light sleeper and he never minds the company. He still gets nightmares himself.
Too much blood to wash away stains their hands. Sometimes it stains their dreams too.

Tonight, she doesn’t quite make it there.

She’s just passing Bucky’s room when she hears the groan. It’s quiet, but packs so much frustration she can practically hear it settling, like dust, over the room. His light clicks on and she can hear the bed creak as he gives up on rest.

She knows that feeling.
To him, it’s all still new. The sleepless nights, the images behind his eyelids. The wondering where he goes from here.

… Clint won’t miss her.

She slows to a stop in front of Bucky’s door and knocks. She slowly creaks the door open after a few moments with no reply.
He’s sitting listlessly on the end of the bed, looking up at her. She can see the mix of hopelessness and curiosity in his face.

“Mind if I join you?” She asks, because she knows sometimes it’s better, easier, to be alone when the nights are bad. She’ll go away if he needs her to.

He doesn’t.

Dammit Marvel, get out of my brain!

More artwork is coming, stay tuned :D
