Neopolitan (partial nudity)

close up of Zara and Dak's tattoos

This has been the better part of a week in the making.  Almost full days because I stupidly thought that I would get it done next session.  I now have headache-caused-by-terrible-posture and my neck is violently out again.  Pro-tip: do not spend hours a day hunched over a tablet.  And while I'm not completely happy with it I'm happy enough to post it.  And obviously I need a hell of a lot more practice with dark scenes.

There is a story behind this one, but not one that I normally try to write to accompany pieces.

Blind push hands

Zara and Dak playing blind push hands

Super quickie sketch before bed (and because I'm late getting to bed again (which means I've once more failed at trying to get to bed early, really need to stop it with the bloody late nights! XD), no story with this one, sorry.

Zara and Dak playing blind push hands during one of their common training sessions.  Zara is supposed to have her goggles around her neck but I forgot to draw them before I coloured the top.  Oops.

Black Fingernails, Red Wine

Strike's crew at a meet

A prickle of nervousness crawled up Silver's spine and settled at the nape of his neck as he followed Aurelius up the very familiar corridor towards one of The Geisha's private rooms.  He didn't usually get nervous going into or even at meets.  He was good at what he did and had an excellent track record for getting favourable outcomes for himself and his employer (not necessarily so much for the other party but that wasn't really his problem).

He hadn't thought twice when Strike had told him that he would be sending his kids to this meet instead of attending himself.  He'd figured it would be a walk in the park, a regrettable occurrence for Strike and the Reavers and the pretty little lamb Strike was sending to slaughter.

Black Fingernails wip

Work in progress

Worked on this the last couple of stream sessions, posted works in progress to Patreon and realised that I've been completely forgetting to post public wips (which is completely unsurprising as while I do post occasional works in progress they are occasional so it was actually pretty easy for me to forget with all the other stuff going on).  I also wanted to show @jedau the kind of stuff that takes me forrrreeeeeeeeevvvaaaaaaarrrrrrrr XD

This was supposed to be a sketch of Megan (to the tune of Black Fingernails, Red Wine by Eskimo Joe which is what spawned the original concept, I have several failed sketches in my sketchbook).  Then it kinda grew.  Out of control.  Like most of the things I do.

Pod ride

Zara and Dak having a moment

Unlike the silence of the pod, which was broken only by the pods own humming, Dakarai's head was full of tumultuous, confused thoughts.

They'd looked.  They'd kept looking.  They hadn't given up.

The last few days...or was it weeks? He wasn't sure.  Either way, it had been a seriously unpleasant blur.

He'd hurt Zara.  He glanced sideways at her, perched nervously on the comfortably worn seat beside him.  That had been the start of the downward spiral.  They'd been training, he couldn't understand the technique Juan was showing them.  Zara picked up everything so easily.  Frustration was normal, but then it had been intolerable.  He hadn't meant to hit her that hard.  Then Juan had confronted him about his stim usage.  Dakarai bristled slightly.  Juan wasn't his father, he didn't have any right to tell him what to do.

But he didn't give up.

Thursday streaming

The plan for streaming on Thursday was do a quick sketch, then carry on with the rig test anim.  That didn't happen.  What happened instead was this.

threesome wip

I don't do anything more complex than textures for backgrounds, the bed is just one ridiculously oversized prop masquerading as a background.  I don't hink that's going to be a normal thing either.  I am not really looking forward to shading those tattoos XD

With  luck I'll have this finished later today but more likely tomorrow or so.

Happy silly season!

AER teens having silly season fun

"Doesn't that make your teeth rot?"

"It's worse when you're with 'em!" Andrew snickered.

Zara passed Andrew another box of decorations from the bowels of the shed, surreptitiously observing Dakarai and Megan being cute at each other on the other side of the garden.  The bright orangey yellows of the Christmas bush caught her eye.  Around this time of year, especially among the people that celebrated Christmas, there seemed to be a tradition of kissing under mistletoe.  The whys were lost in the annals of time (unless one cared to look of course).  Andrew's ears perked up as Zara's trademark cheeky grin suddenly crossed her face.

"What are you thinking?" he asked with a smile, accurately sensing that he was about to be dragged into something.

"See the Christmas bush?"

Andrew grinned as he caught her train of thought.
