Mariska Morevna

Mariska (ma-RISH-ka) Morevna, another character from Mutants and Masterminds! Mariska is not my character; she was designed and played by my friend Casey. I used one of her reference pictures and converted Mariska into this chibi thing I've got going on. I plan to draw the rest of the party in this style as well.

Mariska has the ability to create illusions and invoke fear in her targets. This is an extremely useful ability at times. However, she doesn't have perfect control over her illusions, which sometimes induces nightmarish existences for her neighbors. Her family is forced to move from place to place due to this, so she has few friends. It doesn't mean she isn't friendly, though. Mariska could save your ass just as easily as she could hand it to you.

Mutants and Masterminds

Heard of that game? Mutants and Masterminds is kinda like DnD, only it's with comic book superheros. My friends and I've started a really super casual campaign, with all mutant high school students (sans one faculty PC.)

My character is Jordan Lank, an "ambiguously gendered" individual. Jordan turned out to be "ambiguous" because I really wanted to play a female character, but then I realized that all of my friends were playing males except for one. We started the "blue harem" joke, and I realized if I created a female character, it would mess up the funny. So, when I brought up the demlima, one of my buddies said "just make your character ambiguously gendered and give them a neutral name. It'll still count!" And thus, Jordan was born.

Jordan leans towards male on first glance. However, take a moment to imagine Jordan in a skirt and with a really small chest. Strike a lady-like pose. Could it work? Possibly. Just enough to make you wonder. Jordan is probably more likely to admit to you the fact that s/he's a mutant than s/he is to discuss "hir" gender. (Mostly because even the players don't know what's under that baggy jacket.)

On a different but relevant note, I've developed this "child-propotion" style thing for character designs that I just like a whole lot. It makes me want to draw a bunch of different characters of mine in this style and see what they look like. Maybe you will see more later.

Days Gone By, Cover Page

Here's a cover page for another story of mine, Days Gone By, that I'm writing with a friend. Rather, I should say, Days Gone By is being "drawn" with a friend of mine. Sometimes we pass the paper back and forth and draw what happens next rather than writing. This is T, a street rat who falls into big money in a strange way. This story involves alternate time streams and challenges the notion of "self."

I'll post up a picture of him that shows his face. Later.

I felt obligated to post something recent. I drew this this past summer just for the heck of it. The image was inspired by the word "Flake." I'm beginning to suspect there's a story behind this one, but I'm not entirely certain. At any rate, here's FLAKE_mime. Drawn in painter.

Lucky Moon: Ulrich

Ulrich Oz, the big bad wolf. Ulrich, at the beginning of the story, is best described as a sheep in wolf's clothing. He's played up as the good guy, easily winning over the main characters to his cause of, well, something close to world domination. Ulrich has class- total ease of style. A smooth operator, he wins over the best minds, the most advanced talent, and the biggest wallets. Ulrich breathes ownership over his world, and it isn't until it's too late before the main characters, Raz and Sy, realize that they're in too deep to escape his clutches.

Lucky Moon: Seath

Man, I love doing these short character bios. Peter and Rom's design were handled by my friend, but I did the character designs for Nanne, Seath, and Ulrich. Here's Seath, Ulrich's right-hand man. Seath believes in Ulrich's ideals absolutely, and should something happen to Ulrich, Seath is the only living man Ulrich will trust with handling (or taking completely over, in the event of his death) operations. Seath is quiet, polite, and keenly observant. He's most often found holding close to a wall or near a doorway as if he were part of the room. People have gotten so used to having Seath quietly around, he's often forgotten, which is exactly how he wants it. A person may suspect Ulrich of manipulating them, but they would never suspect Seath. Seath isn't a bad guy at all, he's just really good at doing what he does, which is knowing everything that goes on.
