HAPPY VALENTINES DAY
Sorry to rain on your parade, but aquatic parthenogenesis or astral amphibian psychosis are the more accepted methods of reproduction. That other one is... icky.

Doing a little bit of experimenting with lighting and shading. It’s been aaaaaaages since I’ve had time to sit down and do some art, so it’s a little rusty, but it was also really fun. Hope you likey
I’ve finally started to do some more art! I’ve got a few base sketched down and I’m digitising them, so here is the first using a new technique I haven’t really tried before...
Big deal, this picture has ten Chameleon Skinks in it ....
I count 11
I’ll do you one better...
Can’t decide which would be worse...
I'd say the 11 Chamo skinks would be worse (assuming that you were facing all 11 at one time). With one predator you could always win via one (very) lucky shot. With that many Chamo skinks, one of those darts is sure to get you. That said, if you had sufficient body armour, to the point where the poison darts could not penetrate, then the single predator would be far worse. Morale of the story... it depends on the context!
Fantastic stuff @Infinity Turtle !!!
Keep it up!
I would also suggest making a cartoon out of subsequent images.
I’ve been hanging onto this open for a month or so but haven’t been able to post it for this sake of the anonymity of the recent Short Story Comp. When writing my piece, ‘Letters of the Sea’, I had a very clear image in my head and a visual I wanted to communicate. I used some new techniques which I haven’t really had time to explore given the extreme business of my last year of high school, so getting this done so quickly, thanks to an inspirational and motivational high, was really satisfying.
For context, please check out the story Comp (linked above) and my analysis/explanation for my entry this time around.
The Breach Between the Jungle and the Beach
Apologies for lateness, but I have been out of wifi range celebrating Christmas in the burning Australustrian sun. In the theme of the holidays, I’ve done a little something:
Lustrian Christmas Wreath
A very Merry Christmas to you all in these unpredictable times.
I wish you all a blessed holiday season
and time of celebration.
Got a couple of things I wanted to put up that aren’t tooooo Lustria related but oh well it’s art.
I decided to draw a couple of my favourite book characters, so here is Aelin Galathynius from the Throne it Glass series:
And here is Lisbeth Salander from The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo:
Hope you likey.
I’ll finish off a couple more wip and throw them up here as well. I should really try to get cracking on a Susan Sto Helit picture (from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series) so I’ll try to get that down within the decade.
I don't know who those people are but the pictures look good. Let me know if you want to draw some gnomes, that would help me out .
Some more non-Lustrian art, sorry. I’ve just done a couple characters from ‘The Boys’ (amazon prime tv show which I reeeaaally like and would recommend watching)
Stormfront, Queen Maeve and Starlight respectively
Hope you likey
Is that the one in which the ones with superpowers aren't the good guys?
Not seen it yet.
Those Images look great, I really like the object source lighting on the last one.
Depends on the gnome:
Technically yes...? It’s sort of like a gritty horrible “realistic” take on superheroes where they work for people and they’re all corrupt etc etc. (just a warning that it is quite gory and violent...) but very good!
Thanks! I’ve been trying some new techniques with shadows and lighting so I’m glad to see some of it’s paying off
Love the Boys - these are fantastic! Now do them as lizards!
I can't really explain this. It was a request while i was fiddling on ms paint.
I hope you like
