A digital painting commission for Kyan0! This was a super fun to do! It is her lemur character Riley trying to remove her face, or something.
70 miles is 70 too many. I miss my boyfriend. :(
Full body cel shaded commission for Bob Todd! It is their character Varin, being a worried pile of tentacles.
Thanks again! <3
5x7 marker and colored pencil commission for Haze! Their vampire character Galleo being a messy eater.
Thanks for commissioning me! <3
AHA AW. Not creepy at all!! But oh wowww it always means so much when people stay interested in my art for that long. ;_; Thank you! Oh man it always blows my mind when internet and the real world COLLIDE. I hope I didn’t seem rude or anything! Since I usually have headphones on the elevators and I tend to adhere to the walls until I can slip out.
What year are you at UARTS?
AW SHUCKS. Thanks so much! I am happy to hear you enjoyed it! Aaah yes Sanjay is one of my favorites lately, I need to draw some more of him. And wow thank you twice! I love drawing Beth.
Wow for the longest time I thought your icon was a charging bull. It is only now that I see it larger I realize it is actually a rabbit HAHA.
BUT YESSS. Nicky and Shane are some of my most precious babies. Tazo unfortunately has been neglected for a while, probably because he’s a nice person HAHA. I actually wrote a bit about Nicky and Shane on my FA awhile back:
“Nicky is a vain sadistic egomaniacal rich boy who has daddy issues and doesn’t know how to FEELINGS. He’s obsessed with himself and thinks the world revolves around him. He likes to emotionally/physically abuse people and thrives on them needing him, or even just his money. He’ll buy people stuff like crazy just to prove how much better he thinks he is. He’s obnoxiously outgoing and vulgar and show off-y. He pretends to have high standards for who he hooks up with but he really doesn’t.
And Shane is a masochistic manipulative sponge. He’s vain too but actually has pretty low self esteem as far as his appearance goes. He can be super motherly and loves to baby people. As much as he gets off on being beat up he loves mushy affection and loves seeing people at their weakest emotional points. All if only so he can baby them more and gain some weird sense of emotional control over them. He seems like the lesser of two evils but he’s pretty much responsible for how awful Nicky is now but I DON’T WANT TO SPOIL TOO MUCH.
They’re both super selfish and have their different tactics for getting the better of anyone they interact with but in the end have similar wants out of people, with so they tend to clash a lot. But then they just have angry hateful sex and Nicky buys everyone smoothies so its okay.”
AND AS FOR TAZO. He is a typically shy and sensitive little emo fruit. He draws a lot and even writes poetry. He can come off a bit snotty or bitchy but deep down he’s a nice guy, he just has trouble connecting with people. His only major issue is that he gets a bit of an odd obsession with his mother due to her neglect. It’s never anything he acts on but it causes a lot of emotional turmoil for him.
I don’t want to delve super deep into their past but as far as their current selves go, Nicky and Tazo are dating, and Nicky and Shane are fuck buddies with a super love-hate-but-mainly-hate-relationship. Shane and Tazo hate each other too, and I am sure Shane makes him cry a lot.
ELEA! I have posted her once before, she she didn’t even have a name then: http://facerotart.tumblr.com/post/36017711109/three-of-nickys-asshole-friends-who-dont-have
But yeah! She is a mega-bitch and of course friends with Nicky, and together they form an unbearable and cruel force of nature crammed into skinny jeans. She’s not super super developed yet but I know she’s a big meany-butt and doesn’t really have any hobbies besides leeching off of local bands and making fun of people at the mall.. Neither her nor Nicky are even safe from each other’s ridicule and criticism, and are constantly getting each other mad. (Elea probably gets angry more often though, she’s not as delusional/egotistical as Nicky is).
She has anorexic tendencies and claims to be straight edge, despite the fact she eats cigarettes day in and day out.
And ahaha thank you! I think I finally managed to make Terri not look like a blue Leon-clone. But ahh whoa I want to see irl-Terri.
FINALLY GETTING TO THESE QUESTIONS!
But yes Shelby!! She is Donald’s girlfriend who I have recently revived! The both of them became really inactive and fell off the face of the earth for a while, but now they’re back!
The both of them are big stereotypical hippies that live in Leon’s godawful trailer park. Shelby is more intelligent and down to earth than Donald, because she hans’t smoked herself into a permanently stoned oblivion like he has. She can have a bit of a temper but she does not like being angry so she is quick to get it under control. In general she is extremely friendly, laid back, and caring. She has to get assertive more often than she would like though, since she has to save Donald’s dumb ass a lot.
She likes painting, meditation, gardening, and her and Donald are both vegan.
I have always been meaning to draw out all my characters so I could work on facial variation and stuff, because I know I can get same-facey. I finally accidentally started this during my spare time in class!
This is not all of my characters though, just the humans and human-faced-animal-people. ACTUALLY NO. It isn’t even all of those. I left out quite a few minor or inactive characters, including parents and other family members. I wanted to include them but…I had to put a cap on this or I would never get it posted. SO YES. This is a majority of my humanoid characters then! So many of these ones aren’t even active but I liked their designs enough to throw them in. I might try to throw some color on these in between commissions.
I wanted to write more info about them other than just their names but I didn’t want this to get too cluttered. I tried to keep family members by each other and keep character groups together BUT WOW so many of these weirdos are just floating around in purgatory right now. I really need to get them all organized. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT ANYONE feel free to ask!
I’d like to do something like this with body types too, but WHOA NELLY THAT IS A BEAST FOR ANOTHER DAY.
PS sorry how grungy some of these are, they traveled around with me for most of the semester.
I just finished my junior year of college and I will be 22 on the 29th of this month. :]
COMMISSIONS ARE OFFICIALLY OPEN!
Since this is my last summer before I am flung into the real world I figure I should start trying to make and save some money, SO HERE ARE MY NEW COMMISSION PRICES. It is sort of longwinded and hopefully not riddled with typos BUT YEAH.

I FORGOT I HAD THIS SKETCH OF MY BOYFRIEND BARFING. I put some pretty colors on it in photoshop.
Working with limited palettes makes me want to screenprint again. :(
