Demi Vs. The Plant Monster storyboard

I did this before writing out the outline for the comic idea I talked about earlier. Basically this is up until the Plant Monster shows up.

Demi Vs. The Plant Monster sketch

First off, the word "spaceshippening" and the bald guy in the corner are unrealated. This was part of a bigger page of sketches.

The girl and the plant monster are related, however. The dark elf girl's name is Demi, and she's a character of mine that started out in a rather... um, unusual way. She started out as a character in a story that FA user JWargod commissioned. I did 16 pages for him (only eight are posted on his FA, with my permission, though), and it came to be that he was unable to continue the story. I asked that since I had a good time coming up with stuff for her, if she could be one of my characters, and he said yes. I had to change/rearrange most details of her backstory, though.

So, not only am I'm trying to come up with ideas for her, but I also started drawing my character Diane a lot more, and changing her character to fit as well... and that includes trying to get a new comic off the ground involving these two.

So, I decided to pick out one idea, and this is what I came up with, based on the sketch: Di and Demi take a vacation on a tropical island, and they get attacked by a giant plant monster. A certain girl saves them from certain doom and befriends them. Hijinks, action, and fanservice ensue. That's as far as I got as far as plotting out the story. That's pretty much the outline, there. In fact, I got the idea for this from that one drawing I linked to.

If/when I get to the comic proper, I want to do characterization RIGHT... especially since I want to use Ron Murphy's character, Hula-Girl. Of all his characters, she's my favorite, and if I was going to put her in something, I don't want to half-ass it in terms of characterization... ESPECIALLY since he's a very popular artist, and he's been doing the online thing FAR longer than I have. I don't want people kicking my ass over the internet. There's been enough of that as is. Anyway, I hope the guy helps me as far as keeping her in character is concerned. I noted him on FA about this, and I hope to hear from him soon.

But, before I can do any of that, I have to outline the idea more, build the story proper from it, and most importantly, DRAW DRAW DRAW!!! If I want this looking remotely... good, I'll have to do that, and I'll have to do that a lot.

Bunny Hoodie Diane

Diane wearing a bunny hoodie. I got the idea from somewhere, and I seem to have lost the link to it.

It just so happens this is blog post #42. The number 42 is awesome!

I haven't done traditional coloring in quite sometime, and this is the first St. Patrick's Day piece I ever did. Usual stuff is... well, usual... but enough about that...

Old Stuff - Attempted Jane Lane Times Two

December 2006 (top) and January 2007 (bottom)

These were an attempt to draw Jane Lane from "Daria". Dunno if I did it right or not. The hardest part was the hair. Some anonymous second person is in the first one, Stacy's in the second

Jane and Stacy from "Daria" are both (C) to MTV
