2012 Monthly Art Meme. (2011 • 2010)
I did a lot of art this year!  Unfortunately, most of it is unpublished and/or for unannounced projects.  And while I prefer to put this yearly meme together with exclusively private non-fanart work, a good deal of fanart/published/professional work made its way into the spread.
I would like for 2013 to be a “keep your head down, work work work and don’t stop” year, though that was the intention for last year and I didn’t get half the things done last year I wanted.  Or maybe I keep unrealistic expectations of myself.
Funny how the year both opened and ended with Dhio and Kaia!  Maybe I should do another portrait of them before the month is over.

Whew!  Here’s the last batch of ECCC sketches (although I think a stray TCAF sketch made its way in there).  I have a few more from TCAF and Connecticon as well, I’ll post those later!

Drawings from ECCC 2012, part 2 (part 1 here)

Woa, completely forgot about these!  Here’s another batch of sketches from ECCC.  Gosh, I’ve gotten a lot of requests to draw Garrus at conventions lately.  I wonder why, hmm….

ME3 Fan-Comic, alternate ending.
Guess that’s why you need all those holo-pads or whatever, they’ll translate all those weird squiggles for you.

Mass Effect 3 Epilogue Comic.  Fanart Friday.  Pencil, photoshop.

(Warning for Spoilers and Yuko Bein’ A Huge Nerd) Oh dang, it happened.  Magnolia and I might’ve made a pact a while back to do some seriously heartfelt ME3 comics.  I’ve been going back and forth over whether or not to post this thing.  Guess it’s too late now!  You all know my terrible fan-comic secret.

I’m gonna nerd for a bit here, feel free to zone out.  After reading the Shadow Broker dossier on Garrus — about his natural leadership abilities being overshadowed by Shepard — I was actually surprised to see him as a squad member in ME3 and not already traipsing around with his own band of ducklings.  And lacking a formal XO on the Normandy in ME3, it felt as though Garrus informally took that role. His taking command of the Normandy (a ship with both Human and Turian origins) kind of seems natural to me.

And man, Liara.  After seeing her full arc over the series, I’ve come to really love her and what she represents.  Originally being historian and archaeologist from a ridiculously long-lived race on TOP of being literally the only character who can’t somehow die by the end of the series, Liara becomes this living time-capsule.  She becomes the embodiment of the trinity of past, present and future.  It’s fascinating.

I tried to make the language and imagery vague enough apply to anyone’s Shepard with any love interest and any ending— unless, y’know, Garrus died in ME2.  A-anyway, this was partially inspired by Marian Churchland's beautiful ME3 comic (which can be found here if you scroll down a bit).  She’s tops.

Drawings from ECCC 2012, part 1

Shoulda put these up a long time ago!  I did as many sketches as I possibly could at ECCC, but sometimes it wasn’t practical with the crowds.  Here’s some of the ones I remembered to take pictures of!

There’s about three posts worth of these guys, I’ll try to spread ‘em out a bit.

You guys should know, I’m really good at drawing guns.

Tony “Masseffect” Shepard, Roma Shepard, and their respective Space Significant Others.  Fanart Fridayyyy
I drew my/Ananth’s Commander Shepard hanging out with Magnolia’s Commander Shepard on the plane to Japan.  Then I went and inked and colored it last weekend, ha ha.
Cerberus weirdness aside, I always thought the Cerberus uniform from ME2 was the classiest of all uniforms, so that’s what they’ve got.  And while every character has to be the exact same height for the sake of game mechanics, I always imagine Turians being unbelievably tall.  And Tali’s the teeniest, that goes without saying.
Tony Masseffect and Roma later went on to start a pizza joint and live happily ever after the end.

Wondercon 2012 convention sketches.  brush pen.

Wondercon was fairly slow, which allowed me to do a few sketches over the course of the weekend.  I kept on forgetting to take pictures of them, so these are the only ones I’ve got.  There’s another one of my Wondercon sketches over here in a photo set if you want to see “the thing I draw for people who don’t know what they want, time permitting”. (hint: it is a picture of Sleipnir in a turtleneck sweater)

Oh hey, if you’re in the Portland area, Ananth and I have a signing at Floating World tonight from 6-8!  Hopefully we’ll see you there!

Reblogging this forever and ever and ever and ever….

 Yuko, you’re awesome

Hah hah, guess I should own up to this.  This was drawn over a year ago when Ananth and I were in the thick of ME2.  I never really wanted it to be attributed to me— hence no watermark— but it looks like everyone who’s reblogged it stuck my name on it!  What the hell tumblr, you’re supposed to be king of lost attribution!
Anyway, we’re now working our way through ME3 and Garrus remains my #1 Space Boyfriend.  Please please please, no spoilers in the comments.  And again, a million apologies to Bryan Lee O’Malley.

Space Bros From Memory.  Photoshop.
Fanart, oh jeez what day is today, Monday?  Listen guys, I’m just really excited for Mass Effect 3.  I’m gonna hang out with my space boyfriend various space-pals tomorrow and it’s got me kind of pumped.  I’m excited to see how accurate my predictions were!
Tried to draw some of my favorite characters from memory with the intention of it being unintentionally hilarious, but, uh, I think I know these guys a little too well.  I mean, they’re pretty off-model and I can’t remember their costumes especially well and Wrex looks like a ninja turtle, but they’re pretty identifiable.  Not bad, considering I haven’t drawn any of these guys in like a year.  
Roma Shepard on the end because she is the Best Shepard if you ask me.

I, uh.  what.
There have been some pretty sweet Mass Effect things popping up on my dash lately, mostly involving Poupon and Ghost Green and I drew this a few days ago I think in response to something Poupon posted but it’s hard to say.
I’m not going to have much to post this week, maybe up until Christmas or so?  Things are pretty hectic over here and there hasn’t been not much time to do fun stuff.  Sorry in advance!  Please feel free to entertain yourself with my fairly extensive archive or Mass Effect fanart tag in the meantime. (or ASoIaF fanart tag or nostalgia monday tag or pantheon tag or Groc Brostar tag…)

Fanart Friday, er, Saturday.  I have so many ideas about Mass Effect 3, you guys.  So many ideas.
Stemming from an old conversation with Ananth, I have long stated how happy I’d be if Mass Effect 3 just turned into traipsing around 22nd-century Earth with Tali and Garrus.  No fire fights, just bullshitting and sightseeing.  Bioware will sell ten copies of the game, and it will be to me ten times.
(and yeah, I realize neither Garrus nor Tali would be able to eat ice cream what with the dextro-DNA and all. :| )
Space brooooooossssss

Thane drawing for some internet dudes from like a month ago.  Photoshop noodling.
Oh, huh, I forgot I drew this.  Welp, gonna throw it on the Tumblr I guess.
People who have no idea what Mass Effect is:  I’m so sorry, please don’t defriend me.  I love you guys, too.  ;__;

Mass Effect: Roma Shepard.
I missed Fanart Friday last week!  In my defense, I was out of the state and without internet access.  I was just going to post the sketch of this, but in consolation of not posting for most of last week, I colored her.
This is Roma, my and Ananth’s designated Shepard from ME1 and ME2.  Infiltrator/Paragon/Spacer/Survivor, hooked up with Liara and then Garrus.  You might recognize her from some other pictures I’ve drawn.

Drew this right when Ananth started playing Mass Effect 2.  I’m still going through my back-log of Mass Effect doodles, since I’m only posting one image a week.
