I’ve been on a book cover kick lately, so I decided to test out my skills on scifigrl47’s wonderful story, Hollow Your Bones Like a Bird. Not sure how well I conveyed the mood of the story, but well… I did my best. :)

Made a book cover for Sci’s Hollow Your Bones Like a Bird. :)

NOW I HAVE A COVER FOR WHEN I PUT MY OWN FIC ON MY EREADER.
(I am a sad, sad loser, but this is awesome!)

The Act of Creation will be your Salvation trailer 

Fic by: Sifigrl47, podfic audio: reena_jenkins

When Tony Stark was seventeen years old, he built his first AI. On that day, he ceased to be his father’s creation, and became a creating force in his own right.That one act likely saved his life, and not always in the most obvious ways.

If you have not read this fic go do it right now!!!

The trusty Boardgamegeek had pics:

OH MY GOD THE BOARD ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE THE ONE IN THE ILLUSTRATION *facepalms for poor Phil and Clarissa*
NOW I KNOW, thank you fangirljava. :D



It looks as though the goal is to get from Doom’s castle in Latveria, past a couple of horrible racist stereotypes, and end up at….uh….

Tony Stark’s Malibu mansion.

An Illustration for a christmas card (that’s gonna be late) for Scifigirl47. DJ is the little bab (and a magicked version of Dummy >w<) JUST GO READ HER FIC GUH.

I got this in the mail, along with my Christmas cards, and I cried in the parking lot of the post office.  
What I received has the following message at the bottom:
"Stark Tower is wishing you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  With Love From Steve, Tony & DJ"
I received a Christmas card from my own fictional world, and it is one of the sweetest things that has ever happened to me.
Thank you.

Oh dang. Okay. I just dug up the watercolor pad with my “Ways I’ve Almost Died” pages in it, pages 6 and 7 are drawn (just not inked), and holy crap I still love page 7. 

Script and a snapshot of the page’s pencils below. Scifigrl47’s words are in quotes.

PAGE 7

The panels are losing their uniform structure as Tony gets angrier.

Panel 1: Flashback. Tony in background, on floor, empty liquor bottles in foreground. “I’ve drunk myself into alcohol poisoning”

Panel 2: Flashback. Tony in the desert in Afghanistan, a small figure in a vast sea of sand. “and felt my skin dry like parchment in the desert sun, thirst like a living thing in my throat.”

Panel 3: Flashback. Loki. “I’ve gone toe to toe with demi-gods”

Panel 4: Flashback. Obie. “and madmen”

Panel 5: Tony, tight-lipped, no longer counting on his fingers. “and monsters.”

Panel 6: Flashback. Snapshot of Iron Man pushing the turbine. “I’ve thrown myself into a turbine the size of a small apartment building”

Panel 7: Flashback. An Iron-man shaped hole in the wall with one red foot sticking out. “and smashed through walls using my head as a blunt instrument.”

image

(Sorry for the phone pic - these pages are about 1” too big to scan until I remove them from the pad and cut them down.)

I think this is one of the strongest page layouts I’ve ever done, and jeez I love the middle three panels and the way the line “I’ve gone toe to toe with demi-gods and madmen and monsters” gets drawn out between them. And that Loki and Obie and Tony! They’re still good! I wouldn’t even bother trying to fix them!

Ugh, I don’t know. I did a quick redraw of Tony from the first page, and the differences in the way I draw his face are really noticeable to me, but they probably aren’t as much to other people. (But then, the redraw was digital, which is my weaker suit.)

Leaning pretty hard toward finishing the comic, though…because art exercise. And page 7. 

Look, someone made my words almost coherent!  YAY! 8)

WIP advice needed

maskedfangirl:

So I have this WIP comic that’s been hanging around waiting for me to finish it for about a year. If you’ve been following me for a while, you might remember seeing a bit of it - it’s based on Tony’s “Ways I’ve Almost Died” monologue from scifigrl47’s 4 (or 5) Reasons for Kidnapping Tony Stark. 

I’m trying to decide whether to finish it.

image

Here’s the deal: I drew and inked the first five pages (of 12) last November, and then my graduate thesis ate my life, and long story short, I haven’t touched the thing in a year. If I finished the last seven pages now, there would be a huge jump in line art quality between pages five and six. Also, I seem to have lost my notes about the background design, so I’d have to redesign a subterranean server room with exposed rock walls based on the existing panels. At least the color would be consistent, since I haven’t done any of that yet. And I’d redo all the word balloons in Manga Studio, because oh my god, that ballooning tool.

(Worth noting: the whole thing is done on large watercolor paper in ink, and coloring was going to be in watercolor. I work fast - the first 5 pages were drawn and inked in something like 4 days - but it’s still a pretty significant time investment. I DO have the time this winter, but.) 

Here are the first five pages, as-is. (Content warnings: gun violence, falling from a tall building, waterboarding) 

I could finish this comic and call it an experiment…or I could just let it go. 

What do you think?

I love what you did with this, and even if you never do another stroke on it, I’m honored by the fact that you did this.

It’s BEAUTIFUL work. 8)

It’s a bad idea to give me ideas…

“Apparently, there’s a high end club downtown that specializes in male strippers.”
“I’m assuming there might be more than one,” Steve said, eyebrows arching up.
“Yeah, but this one has pole dancers dressed as super heroes.”
Steve stared at him. “Tony…”
“What?”
“No.”
Tony frowned at him. “No, what? What? What, no?”
“No, you may not take the armor to a strip joint.”
Tony’s mouth fell open. “Wait. Wait, wait. First of all, what?”
Steve gave him look. “That is a PR nightmare looking for a place to happen.”
“I agree the armor is a sexy, sexy beast,” Tony said, “but even I know its limitations, and I’m pretty sure that pole dancing is not within the-” He paused. Sipped his coffee. “Actually, you know, if I came up with a light weight alloy, you know, not aiming for bullet proof and just went with some extreme joint flexibility, we might have a chance to-”
“Tony?”
“Yeah?”
“No,” Steve told him, trying to keep his face straight.
“I have a pole. It’s on my plane,” Tony pointed out. “I have a pole, let’s give this a try.”
—-from Extracurricular Activities, by scifigrl47

Other references for this include:
The look &amp; feel of Mark 41, which was apparently designed to be light weight &amp; flexible.

The interior of Tony’s private jet, from Iron Man II. It didn’t seem that grand compared to what Google Images can produce based on the keywords “private jet interior”, though.

And, at some point, cats.

It started a LONG WHILE AGO with an idea of a lovely commission I’ve been glad to fulfil. The person who asked me for a commission had an idea of agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. defending themselves from some weird shit with some office supplies. I’ve literally spent months over the sketches for this one, changing the positions and angles, and finally it dawned on me.
Best possible #AgentsOfSHIELD fight scene: THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD WHOM YOU’RE GONNA CALL Phil Coulson on the front line and I’VE TASTED COFFEE MADE BY A JUNIOR AGENT I KNOW SUFFERING Agent Blake on background. Like, Coulson doing most part of the fight, others just adding to this chaos, and Blake’s inner facepalm being obvious - that all just… sounded right))
So… hope you like it))Seemed appropriate to share this right before the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiere ;}
