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

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.



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 😀


More art goodies will be coming. Stay tuned.


Avengers Gender-bend – Black Widow

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, Nicolette ‘Nic’ J. Fury. Even if he’d never admit it, he thinks of Nic 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 😀

Avengers Gender-bend – Hawkeye

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)

Palette Meme – Wolverine

More Memetastical goodness 😀

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 😀

Stay tuned for more goodies 😀


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

Palette Meme – Punk Storm

More memetastic goodness 😀

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**

Insomnia — a post-Winter Soldier mini comic

(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 😀

More Bucky/Nat cuteness -mildly NSFW

Darn it, I can’t seem to quit drawing these two :/


N: Anybody ever tell you that thing is freaking cold first thing in the morning?

B: Wanna help me warm it up?


He slept in ice for 70 years, so it takes him a while to adjust to the warmth of another person beside him at night. 

Natasha is all fire and heat and energy, and she radiates it like a furnace anytime he’s near her. She’s like a volcano – hard and still as a stone outside, but liquid fire underneath, fluid and hot and destructive. 

She’s his other half in more ways than one. Where he is winter: ice, cold and death, she is summer: sun, heat, and life. He clings to that, even if he doesn’t know how to tell her what it means.

When she rolls over to face him in the mornings though, heavy eyed, hair mussed, and drowsy… and smiles at him like he’s the best thing she’s ever seen in her life… he thinks she knows. And she understands.


And yes, she has bullet scars. If you’ve seen TWS, you know why.

(pose reference)


More shinies will be coming, now that I (theoretically) have these two out of my system. Keep your eyes peeled 😀
