I rarely do this but this one is a personal one. A couple of my friends are in trouble after trying very hard to save one of their animals. The story is in the link but what it doesn’t tell you is that the two people behind this campaign are incredibly sweet people and the kind of love they show…

These people are good friends of my roommate, are all the flavors of awesome that she says they are, and man, they really, really love that bunny. Any help is appreciated, even if it’s just a reblog. <3

Professor Hojo! Uh. Dancing. Yes.
Intended to cheer up a certain someone, and it worked! There were smiles.
Mission accomplished?

Whew! Sorry about falling off the planet a bit there.Had a very busy and full two weeks, between madness at my day job and madness in the rest of my life, and I fell out of the habit of doing art-that&#8217;s-not-comic. Yeek, I hate when that happens, the sudden busy. Getting back into the swing of things by coloring (and slightly tweaking, with permission) a sketch drawn by my best bud zoe1718 of Profs Gast and Hojo from Final Fantasy 7. She ships them both and oh man, I love her fanfics about it. So much.Very soothing to work on. :3 I promise, Hojo&#8217;s wearing shorts. XD They&#8217;re there.Her original sketch is over here! So are the fics so far: Part One: The Guardian
Part Two: And All That Could Have Been
Part Three: The Fragile

Whew! Sorry about falling off the planet a bit there.

Had a very busy and full two weeks, between madness at my day job and madness in the rest of my life, and I fell out of the habit of doing art-that’s-not-comic.

Prophecy of the Circle RETUUUUUUURNS!Not sure if it&#8217;s a triumphant return or if it just sort of stumbles in and passes out face first on your couch, but it&#8217;s definitely back. You&#8217;re not going to be able to make it move unless you make some coffee first, either way. It likes coffee.Check it out on the main site here!Or on the mirror sites at DeviantArt and Tapastic. :)HOORAY.

HOORAY.

MOAR WIPs. I think I have a problem.Verd! Old character, originally from the same story that Prophecy of the Circle was based off of, but he was cut from it long, long ago. He was originally not a tikedi but something close to a tikedi, but I&#8217;d rather give him little ears (although his feet aren&#8217;t extra long like a tikedi&#8217;s here, which I suppose makes him something of a hybrid  between his two versions at this point). He&#8217;s more analogous to those tikedi-in-space that I&#8217;ve mentioned before, but ultimately he&#8217;s just&#8230; sort of in story limbo.That&#8217;s probably akin to being stuck in an alleyway for eternity. I hope I can find a home for him someday. I apologize to the fellow if it requires another species change.He was once a henchman of sorts who didn&#8217;t particularly want the job but was somewhere between not having a way out of that life and not knowing what else he could do. Not really a bad fellow, but he winds up in unpleasant scenarios for a long time. He&#8217;d have to really choose his own destiny to get out.I wish I could have sent him to the beach.(and I think that ends my posting spree for the day, honestly)

No One&#8217;s Coming Back (2013)Man, I forgot about this one! I actually don&#8217;t mind it much now that some time&#8217;s passed. It was originally a submission to a project, but didn&#8217;t make the cut (and I can see why; it could use some improvement in a lot of areas and it isn&#8217;t super obvious subject matter-wise) which is probably why I kind of felt a bit down on it initially.I like the background a lot, actually. S&#8217;what happens when I actually reference from photographs.The theme was ghosts, and, predictable as I am, I kind of drew off of the Chernobyl disaster for inspiration, which is kind of funny because while you&#8217;d think the place would spawn all sorts of records of hauntings, there&#8217;s surprisingly little. Only one that I could find, in fact, wherein a few people have reported a feeling of being watched while exploring in the hospital. Knowing what I do of the incident, that makes a lot of sense to me, really. But yes. I found this! I&#8217;m going to share it. Then I&#8217;m going to go doodle some more.

Inking a pencil sketch: a sure-fire way to suck all the life out of it, I swear. Especially if you’re me. I’m so good at that these days.

Ah well. It’s a thing! And it’s not too bad, especially for a quick doodle, although I may come back to this one, or at least these characters. It’s a thing for zoe1718 who’s been on a fanfic spree about Professors Hojo and Gast and… she’s got me a bit hooked on her particular vision of these two, to a point that I can’t even understand. XD; Younger Gast is based on a drawing she did a while ago, and then for fun I aged them to make sure I was getting them right. Pretty close?
