I threw the hope that we will see Anne Iver in the pit.

There she is! Yelling at an anonymous client over the phone about payment. Hey, amazonian private eyes don’t come cheap ok?

Ok, so you saw the old a ways back and now here’s some much fresher and newer doodles of my trans protagonist Arturo Mendez from my story concept "Charity Hill". 
Used this page of drawings to work out his fashion sense and put him in some various and neat outfits, and I imagine he’s got a pretty sharp sense of dress, even when it comes to the more casual occasions. 
Also that pipe he smokes is canon now. In my opinion pipes are way classier than cigarettes or cigars. If I didn’t care about my health I’d probably smoke one honestly.

"Listen here Sergeant. You see that woman over there? Don’t mess with a woman who’s fought in 5 conflicts, lost her right arm and eye before having them replaced with cybernetic ones, wields a sword, and has founded and commanded not only one but TWO special ops units.”
Some quick little boarder-less panel experimentation with my bad-ass character, Major Soldat Battlecreek from my big post-cyberpunk opus "LIVE GEAR"!

It had been a good while since I had drawn something finished for my big ol’ Post-cyberpunk genre story known as "LIVE GEAR"

Since the main cast are in the military and members of a spec ops unit, I wanted to nail down their casual (and a couple uniformed) dress looks along with their full field-suit duds. I wanted there to be a sort of uniformity but also unique features and aspects to each one as well!

So naming all 6 from left to right we have:

(Top Row): Zeke Rowland, Hilda Stadford, Bailey Strauss

(Bottom Row): Leland Birdsong, Blaine Rockwell, Maj. Soldat Battlecreek

Got a furaffinity account?

Nah. Sorry.

(Here’s the deal. I don’t have anything against Furaffinity or the furry community at all. I’m just doing terrible as it is balancing my presence on only two sites right now: here and DeviantArt. So adding another to the mix would just ensure it got neglected as much, if not even more…)

If you could have any of your stories cross-over, which ones would you choose?

ACTUALLY ANON: I realized recently I have so many damn story ideas floating around, that I decided to fold a bunch of them together into a sort of “shared-universe”. They all shared the elements of the supernatural/sci-fi/paranormal set in an alternate modern day Earth.

Eventually I want to knock each story out, and then bring all the respective protagonists together to make a sort of rag-tag supernatural & conspiracy hunting team a-la “Guardians of the Galaxy" style or something. They’d hunt and fight new threats I’d make just for THAT series.

The duo above are original characters (separate from the various stories) I was kicking around in my head that would be the sort of “brains” of bringing the team of protagonists together. 

The woman on the left is Dr. Agatha Lancaster, she’s a sort of an eccentric genius and world-expert on paranormal/supernatural stuff. The creature on the right is named Dover and they’re a strange shape-shifting and borderline invincible being from another dimension. Dr. Lancaster found them when she accidentally opened a space-time rift during a thesis experiment.

What if you called on Zati and asked her out on a date or something stupid along those lines? Also, is her nominal fee's your first born child? Does she eat babies? Kind of brutal there.

She likes to play coy, I don’t think you’re really gonna get a solid answer out of her as to what the payment is until it’s a little too late hahaha. For goodness sake I made her and even I don’t know what it is (cause I haven’t worked it out yet!).

But naw, she doesn’t eat babies tho to answer your question. 

HAVE FUN ON THAT DATE ANON. HOPE IT’S WORTH THE PRICE~

Some slightly older doodles I did back when I was first putting together a story idea: "Charity Hill". I realized through my various ideas and works that I had zero stories with a transgender main character front and center, so I wanted to change that here with Arturo Mendez, who’s a trans male. 
I still have to tweak and work way more on some elements of his design, and what-not but I thought it wasn’t a bad start of a direction to work with. 
I can’t say much about Charity Hill at the moment, but if you like stories with conspiracies, strange small towns, and paranormal elements then it’s up your alley! Think of it as a cross between Twin Peaks and FLCL!

Some old sketches I sorta missed that I’d done of my fictional intelligent race of dragon people known as the “Orsi”. 
The one’s at the bottom are of a specific character known as Grace-Fierce, and she’s the head of the government’s secret spy/assassination wing. She wears that Bane-like mask over her muzzle because she’s got a rare asthma-type medical problem. Look out tho, she’s still 10ft tall, a trained killer, and can easily break you in half!

Was inspired recently to do more art of my nearly forgotten amazon of a private detective: Anne Iver. 

SO I got carried away and did more than just one drawing of her but I mean come on, can you really blame me after taking a look at those guns? And those hips? And those scars? And that scowl? 

Nah…I didn’t think so. 

So with my 25th birthday right around the corner (closely following suit to this blog’s birthday as always) YEAR TWO of my time on Tumblr is in the books!
I’ve had the image for a picture like this in my head for quite a while and I’m finally glad I got to get it out for this anniversary picture! In retrospect I probably could have crammed another character or two in there but I think you all get the point. 
Within the next year I’m planning for a character or two spilling out my head up there to have their own comic finished and ready for the masses! Stay tuned here for that and much more art to come! Thank you to everyone who follows me and I hope the art coming in the future year(s) will continue to inspire and excite even more than it already has~!

My birthday is coming up on the 11th, but I’m actually going to be taking an early vacation trip with my family up to NYC for my father’s birthday (which is a week later on the 18th). I’ll be away from the 9th through the 13th.
If anyone is truck with the insane level of kindness to do any fan-art or other similar artwork for my for my 25th birthday, just tag it as: #GDSD Birthday so I can scope them when I get back or while I’m using the Wifi at the hotel up in New York!
I’m gonna be trying to queue up some new and old sketches to run while I’m away! See you all later next week!

Hi there! I really love your work and characters (and that's a severe understatement) and I was wondering whether you were ever planning to open some kind of Character Ask blog - where people could pose questions to characters of yours and they could respond?
Anonymous

Thank you so much anon! I’m stoked that you enjoy all my characters and the work I put up here~!

To answer your question: I don’t think I’ll be opening one anytime soon. Maaaaaybe in the far future, but as for the time being I have to use my time for the pursuit of several serious art career ventures on my plate. As incredibly fun as ask blogs are to run, they eat up a substantial amount of time to steadily draw responses for. And time is a very valuable asset to me right now (almost more-so than money…haha almost). 

I’m trying to answer more asks on here from time to time, just a full blog devoted to them isn’t on the horizon.

Sorry!

Another character now from my “WEST” concept!
Zambati-Shiharizati is her full name but she goes by “Zati” if that’s a bit too much of a mouthful for you! She’s an ancient magical trickster like imp creature who adventurers can summon by saying her name to fight for them using her incredibly unfathomable powers…at a nominal fee each time of course. 
If any parallel were to be drawn, I’d say she’s the closest to a sort of Western Rumpelstiltskin?

WELL it’s less than a month until my birthday (August 11th). 
Ever since I turned about 22 or 23 I’ve kinda suffered from birthday depression that kinda seems to increase each year around so I’m doing my best to find a way to get through this one without mentally going into a slide for a day or two…
25 HERE I COME I GUESS. [GROSS LOUD SWEATING]
ALSO, ON A NOT-SO-DOWNER NOTE: HELLO AND WELCOME NEW FOLLOWERS!!!
