REQUEST: MtG Drake Tokens

Magic the Gathering MtG Drake Tokens

Long ago, back when I was still pretending that I understood MtG (I tried, guys. I really tried…), I had an Orzhov deck.

That thing generated ghost and bat tokens like crazy if left unchecked, which was pretty fun when I actually got it to work haha.

Anyway, being a terible player AND being broke af, someone eventually told me that I could just make my own tokens since they were just 1/1 things anyway. I found out that you could even use coins or rocks as tokens so… yay? xDDD

I scrounged up some spare card sleeves, post-its, and a marker, and drew some potato-looking ghosts and bats. They were pretty cute, though. 😀

Anyway, fast forward to 2018, and I’ve accepted that I’m not an MtG-playing kind of person, but I’m still drawing potato-looking everythings, haha.

A friend of mine who is a REALLY into Magic: the Gathering, then asked me to make a custom Drake token for him recently, aaaaand this was the result lol.

I wasn’t sure which border he’d like so I made both. I am quite fond of this derpdrake now. ❤

Overwatch Voice Actors in Manila, and I’M FREAKING OUT!

Overwatch Symmetra Sombra Pharah Zenyatta traditional filipino costume comiccon asia 2018
Click image to embiggen!

 

For the curious, here are the drawing details:

  • Sombra is wearing a Baro’t Saya with a Panuelo and Tapis, and is holding typical streetfood/snacks-on-sticks haha. It’s called “kwek-kwek” (orange-battered and deep fried hardboiled quail eggs) and “bananacue” (fried plantains with caramelized sugar).
  • Zen is wearing a “katipunero” outfit, and sipping juice out of a fresh, opened coconut (if omnics could drink??).
  • Pharah is in a not-the-usual-red Ifugao outfit, and is holding sunflowers and wearing a traditional feathered headress.
  • Symmetra is dressed as a Maranao princess, dancing the singkil. She is also materializing a “sarimanok” or Bird of Happiness from myths (aka, “lucky chicken” lol).

So I learned some time ago that Comiccon Asia 2018 was happening… AND they’re having FOUR Overwatch Voice Actors showing up as guests. ❤ ❤ ❤

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAVE I MENTIONED HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS GAME AND JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING IN/AROUND/ABOUT IT???

I bought tickets for autographs and photo ops with Sym’s and Sombra’s VAs despite us still kind of recovering from a massive vet bill recently (which is another long story), and my husband didn’t divorce me, so that’s good haha. I really hoped to get tickets to see everyone because who knows when they’ll be able to come back to this country — or if they’d want to — but two is the best we could do. Was also hoping to get a ticket for Zen’s VA for the husband, but it was a no go. 😦 Thankfully, hubby is cool with it, but still…  CURSE MY THIN WALLET. T__T;;

Anyway…. Soooooooo…. I bought passes for their March 25 appearance, and I suddenly got it into my head last night (at 1am saturday March 24… whyyyyyyyy…) to make a small tribute artwork for said OW VAs. And this is the result. Herp.

I don’t think I have EVER worked so fast in my life. I was even able to rush to the print shop to have it printed on A4 paper, so yay!

I’m looking forward to giving copies to Sym and Sombra… but yeah. I still don’t know how I’m supposed to hand it over to Pharah and Zen. Hopefully there’s a designated gift table, or maybe I can beg a staff member to hand it to them. I’m crossing my fingers. >__<;;;

Anyway, I copied default poses and drew Zen, Sombra, Pharah (sorry I know I can’t draw hands or feet ;w; ) in some stylized regional traditional costumes. I know I took some liberties in there, and I also know I may have gotten some of pharah’s tattoo symbolisms wrong herp pls don’t lynch me, history enthusiasts… T__T;;

In the meantime, we plan to line up early tomorrow to get our entry badges so maybe I should actually get some sleep haha

No touch!

We said don't press it

Hello. I’m actually still alive hahaha herp.

As usual, I have badly-maintained blogs that I just prod to life from time to time. Sorry about that.

In the meantime, here’s a comic my husband requested from me quite a while ago, which I finally got around to making lol. … I hope I got it right haha.

(Disclaimer: I am not a Warhammer fan, so I’m sorry for the liberties I’ve taken with the drawing herp xDDD)

iPad Practice: Pink Floral Lolita

Still practicing! I think I’m finally getting comfortable with using the stylus. Its square/flat shape has made it a bit difficult, but I think my hand is finally getting accustomed to it.

I’ve also stuck with MediBang Paint, and I like to think I’m faring a bit better.

I don’t know maybe I’m just having a hard time with Procreate because I’m using an older iPad instead of an iPad Pro…?

Anyway, here’s a pastel lolita lady with flowers for ya. It’s still a long way off from what I had in  my head, but I guess it’s a start lol.

iPad Practice: Overwatch – Talon’s Day Out

july 18 Overwatch reaper widowmaker sombra talon fanart ksolaris tanukidoodles

Okay so… YES. Still struggling to get used to this whole drawing-on-an-iPad thing.

I’m slowly getting accustomed to the grip of the stylus, as well as the weight and feel of the iPad itself. Still a little clunky but yeah… maybe I’m making progress haha

Anyway it’s a long weekend right now, and almost everyone’s on vacation (of course I still have work… because #workfromhomeproblems and all that…)

I figured Overwatch’s villain group should have a day off, too. So here’s Widowmaker, Sombra, and Daddy Reaper having a beach day before going back to base to tackle that pesky problem that is Overwatch haha. xDD

Oh, I DID change one thing, though… I decided that I’m too dumb to use Procreate Procreate is kind of a little heavy to use, so a friend recommended I switch to MediBang Paint. It does feel a lot more like a combination of Photoshop and PaintTool SAI to me, both of which I’m familar with, so it actually felt a little nicer to use. Also they have a lovely library of halftones, backgrounds, and visual references to use so that’s fantastic. ❤

iPad Practice: Overwatch – Symmetra

july 10 Overwatch Symmetra fanart ksolaris tanukidoodles

 

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been setting about trying to get used to working with an iPad, a new stylus, and Apple illustration apps (in this case, Procreate).

How’s my progress so far…?

Well… POTATO.

Ahahahah it’s hard. oTL

I’m not used to an iPad’s interface as I’m a devout PC/Android user, and the Pencil stylus takes some getting used to, as the way it’s shaped is a little strange to grip, in my opinion. I’m still learning how to deal with the edges.

Sigh. Hopefully it will get better T__T
