Starbound Sketches: Deskside Doodles by The-Ethereal-Maiden
Starbound Sketches: Deskside Doodles
Me and my fella enjoy our fair share of games, but we really get a kick of out Starbound. So much so, that we've been doing little side projects of our characters. He's been writing a riveting Glitch back story, and I in turn, have been working out a rough little time line for my Nova Kid, Methany....which in theory I would like to make some little comics for. I've been struggling to find a way to draw Methany without looking too realistic...so I got real busy this week and started drawing designs for Methany's origin comic. As Nova Kid's are the least written about in the universe cannon so far (as they were a stretch goal in the kickstarter...) I've got a lot of creative wiggle room to work with.

TOP LEFT: Here we have Methany's starting design for the game start...with the basic equipment. Look at that little bow legged beauty. I'm a little worried about the Nova Kid's lack of face...but hopefully this will be a challenge on body language so I can practice conveying emotions. She's got her trusty matter manipulator!

TOP MIDDLE: Methany is a bit of a horder. I'll be honest. She's got jars upon jars of bugs in her cockpit. In rainbow order. Here she is with a common variant known for it's pointy bug teeth. Instruments. Blue prints. Hats. It is ridiculous.

TOP RIGHT: Methany's Father, to appear in the comic.

CENTER MIDDLE: Methany's mother, to appear in the comic.

MIDDLE RIGHT: Chibi Methany and her trusty accordion. She likes to waddle across the depths of the sea, playing with her Glitch companion, LED Coghum.

BOTTOM LEFT: A starting sketch of some toxic ocean attire....

BOTTOM CENTER: Beach Creepin'.

BOTTOM RIGHT: Not star bound related. While I was at work the other day (I work at a call center) one of our clients was yelling at a child in the background. "DON'T SHAKE THE SNAIL. PUT THE SNAIL DOWN." Apparently, after a rainy night, her 4 year old brought back a snail as a pet....and was facinated by shaking the container he put it in to get it to move. He named it Gary, after Spongebob. Had to sketch it.

Auri: A Fish with a Harp where its Heart should be by The-Ethereal-Maiden
Auri: A Fish with a Harp where its Heart should be
A lovely story: I love, absolutely love, the King's Killer Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss. He's a wonderful fantasy novelist who I really admire. I have always had a great love of reading, but I never had a favorite book until I read Name of the Wind. I highly recommend it.

Well, the managed to get enough money together to book Patrick for a small gaming convention at my alma mater, and let me tell you, I wasn't about to miss an opportunity. I planned out time to make a drawing of my favorite character, Auri, and three gifts she was given.

Now, I had a fantastical experience meeting Patrick Rothfuss, but here is the artwork I passef on. <3

Happy New Year, friends!

It's a brand new sketch book of opportunities, and I look forward to seeing what we'll all share with each other this year! In the spirit of giving and sharing, I have a lot of exciting things to watch for this year!

Santa was very generous this year, and I now have a camcorder and digital camera to record both work in progress and completed work! This year, I'll be making an active effort to share what I'm working on! I'm drafting up a few large projects this year, but I plan to keep you all posted every step of the way!

But, as I've done enough boring feeling announcements, I leave you with something a little more fun:

That was a nickname I had for her when we were in school together. She got her degrees in teaching, I got mine in studio art and English. ^_^
