Trigun is/was one of the first anime series’ that I fell in love with as a kid (like, middle school). As soon as I could convince my mom, I got the manga too! I started rereading it recently and I definitely see the huge influence this series made on my current drawing style.
I drew, redrew, and redrew again the cover of Trigun vol 1 growing up. Of course, Vash the Stampede was always the best, am I right??? As an homage to the huge impact it had on my art life, I redrew it yet again. I hope you enjoy this rare fanart from me!
Don’t let Sacha fool you- he may make smoking look cool…but it’s not. He’s not proud of it, he doesn’t enjoy it…in fact, he really wants to quit. But smoking can become an addiction- and he goes absolutely OFF THE RAILS when he tries to stop cold turkey. I hope he can find a way… the health effects are catching up to him ;_;
When I was sorting through my illustrations to find my favorite of each character, I realized my favorite of Friday is no longer applicable to my current style…so I redrew it ;^) I’m also hosting a costume contest on my socials, so be sure to head over to my Instagram or Twitter to enter before Halloween!!
I am working on a portrait series of all the main characters from Blue Remedy to turn into a color block type poster. I asked on IG which one should be posted publicly (the rest are going to be on patreon only… I only have Friday left to do!), and it was a four way tie… Go figure!
So I decided to go with Nick, since he’s my favorite ;^). This is one of the prints I have available at the convention…and my shop! Check it out!!
But what can I say? I feel like I had some really good ideas in the past that I couldn’t really execute with the skill level I had then. It makes me both proud and also embarrassed to share these redraws…On one hand, it’s like, “damn ma, you did a lot in two years!” but I also want to hide my head because I am endlessly embarrassed that I thought my old work was good… but hey, we have to start somewhere- and it all just takes practice!
My first born OC (kind of), and based on me, I can’t help that Nick is my favorite. I love his swag, his style, and every effed up aspect of his personality. <333 We love an effed up baby don’t we?
Nick is definitely the type to throw some money around, be generous, and generally look for ways to be popular in a group. “Drinks on me” is definitely something we would hear him say! He always wants people to like him, and generosity is one of the easiest ways…of course, that only lasts as long as the money does. It’s not always about materialism, Nick… you have a lot more to give if you find the right people to trust with it!
Nothing says spring like a heavily tattooed punk with flowers behind him- right? Right?
Honestly, I was just inspired by the video “I’m not a vampire” by Falling in Reverse- I wanted to draw the outfit Ronnie Radke was wearing on Sacha!! Then I figured I needed some bright/spring- themed pictures for my wall and new prints…so I slapped some flowers on the back and said “yeah that works”. I mean, do we really need a reason for a shirtless Sacha? Do we? I think not.
