Old drawing of Alter that I wanted to do more with but decided not to.

I think my problem is that I’m sick of my current art style and I don’t know how I want to change it up (  \) hmm

Socially I’ve had a very busy summer but my art life’s been in a total slump and I’ve just begun to recover @_@ To the people I still owe commissions to, I’m really sorry for the long wait TuT They’re alllllmost done!

Thank youuu! I would like to make an artbook someday yes *__* no plans right at the moment though. Maybe when I feel I have a good enough collection of sketches that I’d feel ok having people pay money to own ^q^

Made a playlist for my baby Bianchi! ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ Unlike the previous playlist, the songs here are mainly indicative of Bianchi’s character, not his music taste (in canon he mainly listens to old pop songs and likes MJ and Madonna best ^q^).
listen
I made a playlist for Boss Ptero. Just a collection of songs that are relevant to his character, that he would blast in his room, or that sound like he could be singing them.

(I’ll just refer to Halcyon as “they” since Halcyon is a Martian and has no gender)

13: What is your OCs earliest memory?

Being trapped inside a glowing blue gelatinous substance which slowly suffocated them, and which couldn’t be pulled apart with their baby hands. They ate their way out.

46: Is your OC loyal?

Hal’s only loyal to their curiosity. Loyalty to one’s friends or people is something Martians have no need for and do not understand.

59: What is the first thing that someone would notice about your OC?

All that hair…or the freakishly large glowing eyes. Depends where you’re looking at them from. They’re pretty noticeable from every angle ^q^

I M BREATHING SO HEAVY I HOPE U ENJOY HADAKA SHITSUJI, ALSO!!! GOOD LUCK ON YOUR GAME!!! I CAN’T WAIT TO PLAY IT!!!

This game is like a dream come true…!! I was screaming and crying over it all last night, I can’t believe I waited so long to play it ^Q^ I’m getting so inspired right now hhahaha thank you

herr-bunbun asked: "This is most likely really random but where do you get inspiration for your OCs names."

I assume you’re referring to the more unusual names since most of my OCs are just named things I found on baby name lists that sounded good ^q^ There isn’t really any specific source of inspiration…Some characters I just randomly chose whatever name that popped into my head that seemed appropriate. Generally I just look at the character and think “I wanna call him…Hal…so…Halcyon?? But I’ll mostly call him Hal I guess. And his friend here uh…D…Drrrr….Draaaa…vvvv. Drauve. Is that stupid? Whatever.”

In other cases, like the Alter Ego guys (Alter Abel, Ego Forsythe, Id Clover, Frou Amédée), all their first names follow a theme I happened to be interested in at the time (Freudian psychology terms…because I was in the middle of an AP Psych course) and their surnames are just whatever names I already knew that sounded good with their first names.

In the unfortunate case of Ptero and Stego…Ptero started out as my persona on Gaia Online for this joint art auction thing, so he was just named after my username (I happen to like pterodactyls). I created Stego as a companion character for him so I gave him a matching dino-themed name. I regret those naming choices a lot now that I decided to scrap the dinosaur theme idea…which is why I more often refer to them as Boss and Bianchi. Their surnames are Nero and Bianchi because that goes with the sort of opposites theme they have going on.

So shit’s really just random.

I kept seeing that palette meme going around, but wasn’t particularly fond of all the super-high-saturation or low-value ranges. For anyone that wants to try something a little different, here you go.
Have fun, everyone!
Back to doing these. Alter with palette 4!
