rajamitsu:

Hastily inked thing that I started at Shuto Con which is all entirely Karmada's fault. XDI finally got Pokemon Y, thanks to a friend, and started playing. Eventually, Karmada said I should make a trainer or gym leader of my own. So, after thinking about it… ta-da!I don’t have a name or much of anything yet, but she sticks prehistoric and dinosaur-like pokemon. Mostly because I’ve always been a Bulbasaur fan and I immediately fell in love with Amaura. (That and I appear to be on some kind of dino kick… Childhood regression, maybe?) Only things I’ve settled on so far is that she often works with the local research lab as a fossil expert and her badge is called the Paleo Badge. The three with her are ones I have on my own team currently, although Amaura and Bulbasar have both evolved since I did the initial sketch. I just got a Tyrunt, so she may be getting one of those soon enough. ;)So many little errors, but this was more just a “get back into the swing of things” inking test, so it’s quick and messy. :P

I am totally okay with being a bad influence. :)

Pokemon Tiiiiiiime~!
I wanted to do a little doodle revamping my Gym Leader from way back in the day. That and now that I’ve been playing X/Y I’ve got a whole bunch of new pokemon that I looooove and have adopted onto my team.
So here’s Leilani!
I’ve designed her as a Gym Leader in the Mountainous Region of [insert name here] (don’t judge, we haven’t thought of it yet). She lives in the central valley at the Shangri-La Gym, which is also the hub of business as they ship all sorts of herbal remedies and medicines to many regions.
Leilani is a Bug/Grass type gym leader, and mainly resides in her gym, which is really a giant Tropical Greenhouse. She’s a go-to business gal, and won’t take kindly if you try to harm her bugs and plants!
Pokemon Team (in this pic):
Phillip: Parasect, Male
Matilda: Crustle, Female
Ferdinand: Scolipede, Male
Benny: Gogoat, Male
Errol: Joltik, Male
(On a total side note, I’m playing through X with mainly a bug/grass group just to see how well I can do. I’ve had to bend my crew a couple of times - fighting gym, I’m looking at you - but I’ve enjoyed bringing my bugs around. :) )

It’s time for that FABULOUS post I talked about earlier.

My SUPER SECRET Shuto Con Cosplay was the LVL 50 Weaver Class outfit from Final Fantasy XIV.

I’m in love with this game, and I just couldn’t help myself. After cosplaying for so long (since 2001) I practically felt obligated to make the Master Weaver’s outfit! (I also made sure to get my own character into it before I made it too! He’s so dapper.)

I didn’t have a ton of time, so I quick-synthed it in about 4 days. WHEW. I drafted a top hat pattern all on my own, and a large chunk of the fabric was stuff I had bought long ago for the project, or was just sitting around the house to use (hello 3 yards of soft black pleather!)

I can’t wait to wear this to more shows. I feel so fabulous in that hat. :)

Cosplayer: Karmada (me!)

Photography: Quarreling-Photography

Quarreling-Photography was a blast to work with! I hope to snag some more pics from her later. :)

Reblogging this for the morning crowd, since I did promise them a fabulous cosplay post as well!

Been fiddling around with how I want to do the comic still. Since it’s on hiatus, I’ve been trying to figure out how to integrate color. As it’s kind of important. But the question is, HOW much color do I add?

I’m still fiddling, but I thought I’d drop these here just to show you my tests.

Next up on the docket is MIDWEST MEDIA EXPO!
I’ll be there in the artist’s alley as Crash Bang Labs! I’ll have my prints and comics as usual, along with my brown paper commissions available.
The show takes place in the Renaissance Center downtown in Detroit - rumor has it we’re on the 4th floor? Either way bring your walking shoes, and come and say hi in about a week! :)

A couple more commissions from Shuto Con 2014. I got to draw some pokemon for people, and it was fun. :)

So here’s a Vaporeon and a Snorlax!

Cosplay Pictures Post Coming soon!

I have a fabulous fantastic cosplay post coming soon, I just have not had the time to filter through the WONDERFUL pictures given to me by my photographer.

So when I get back from WCS prelims, I’ll have some lovely stuff up here for you. :)

To go along with the commissions I was drawing at Shuto Con this year, I also wanted to try drawing some pokemon.
So here is my lovely Ferdinand, the Scolipede!

One of the few commissions I drew while I was at Shuto Con. tinytrexstudios / rajamitsu commissioned me to draw a Stephen for her. :) I couldn’t help but oblige.

Reblogging for the regular art blog crowd.
For those unaware, I also have a blog dedicated to my Tabletop RPG characters and stories they’re in (Yep, I play things like Pathfinder, D&D, etc).So if you’d like some hilarity and other artworks, feel free to check it out! Sometimes I also post artwork from other people in the games too. :) Just in case it looks confusing.
Oh it helps if I link you guys: bytherollofthedie
