I am a human. I live on a planet called Earth. I love sushi and dachshunds, along with cookies, root beer, and the Halo franchise. The Walking Dead is a favorite show of mine. I wave my geek flag proudly. I hate math with a passion. If you want to know how many oranges can fit inside the sun, you wouldn't know, because they would all burn up. There. Question solved. :dummy:

Thanks so much for passing by, favoriting, or watching! It's all very much appreciated! I also like llama badges, so go right ahead and toss them to me. I'll toss one back! :squee:

The other thing I've been keeping in the wings like the sneaky fruit ninja I am. :P

So I fiddled with Lawrence's hair-do because why the heck not? :la: To be honest, I blame my mom for the inspiration that caused this. She's a hair stylist, and told me I should try him in this kind of a style instead of his usual Eddy Munster-mane he usually rocks. So, I did in a separate sketch, which she consequently loved. I later did it again in a completely different picture, which became this.
Therefore, I blame you, wonderful mother. I hope you're happy you turned Lawrence into this devious, yet alluringly shady man. All on you. :dummy:

Seriously though, I love messing with his design. It really reminds me just how much appearances and details play into a character. I mean, with a hair change-up, ear studs, and some red eyes, he's turned from quiet, genteel homicide detective with copious inner turmoil to that slick, back-alley guy you get your less than legit products from; and who'd slit your throat if you'd tell anything about the operation.
I might bring back this version of him one day. I just can't get over that hair. :>

Thanks for looking! :heart:

P.S, the title is from a song in Macross Plus's soundtrack. For some reason it feels like it fits, and yet I know it doesn't make much sense in correlation with the piece. Oh well. I'm the artist, I can name my art what I like, pshh. Wink/Razz

By The Neighborhood

Oh god.
I've been so bad. Oh Noes! Nothing posted in literally months. Hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng. That is so horrible; and I know I promised owed art would be up next, but I just couldn't handle it anymore. Rest assured, I have not forgotten though. I've been very procrastinationy DA-wise, and just... not consistent. I'm very sorry. Sad dummyI'm doing my best to get back into the swing of things.

Anywho, the only real purpose to this sketchy doodlely thinga-ma-bobber was to see Lawrence with his hair totally wet like he had just gotten out of the shower. :XD: A++ reason, amirite? Plus I really just wanted to draw him for a while. Oh, and I also really wanted to bring to life his 'dark days' look, so to speak. Back when he didn't care about anything other than driving the pain away and taking a drag.
Attractive, yes? He really let that stubble go, dang. 
P.S, just saying if I haven't before, but The Neighborhood. Hnng. How I love that band and their wonderful songs.

Art Status, Info, and List

Trades - Ask Me by SweetDuke Collaborations - Ask Me by SweetDukeNo Point Commissions by SweetDuke
Commissions - Closed by SweetDuke Kiribans - Open by SweetDukeBlack Lace Gifts - SECRET by iDaphodil

Please do not watch me and expect a watchback in return. I don't subscribe to that, and I would prefer if you watch me based solely on the fact you enjoy my work. If you don't care for what I do, absolutely no harm done. We all have our own tastes. But I would rather someone hate what I do and not watch, then someone watch and not even care.

Tools of the Trade - Photoshop CS5 and a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet for my digital art, and usually a mechanical pencil and paper for my traditional art. Although I have come to use watercolors, some gouache, Faber Castell ink pens, Sharpie paint pens, a white gel pen, and more as well. Generally more sketch-type things are put up, however.

Policy on Gift Art - I more than welcome gift art, and thank you so much for even considering it (if you have)! All I ask is if you're doing one of my characters, please respect them. Both creator and creations would be deeply grateful.

If you have requested something, or are otherwise expecting art from me, let me know! While I like to think I have a good memory, I may have forgotten something.

---

Commissions - Closed. I have no Paypal at the moment, and I'd like to be able to do these in a timely matter; which is difficult at the moment.
I'd like commissions to be available in the future, however.

Trades - Feel free to ask, but there's not a guarantee I'll always say yes. Not only because of life, but I also put a lot of heart, time, and work into my art. I'd like something around the same quality.

Requests - Sometimes closed, sometimes open. Keep an eye out for my journals, as I announce and open up requests solely through them. Otherwise, I'm closed.

Collaborations - Again, feel free to ask, but the same guidelines from the trade section applies.

Kiriban - I'll be doing the next one at the 25,000 pageview mark. Keep an eye out!

---

Objectives

1. Finish owed art.

2. Finish L.A.

3. Give all my characters ref sheets.

Owed Art list

1. Trade with SunsetfrontierRoam

2. Kiriban for EnmismAnima

F.A.Q

Q: What programs/tablet do you use?

A: Photoshop CS5 and a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet. I'd really like to get Paint Tool Sai soon though.


Q: How long have you been drawing?

A: Like many other artists, pretty much since I could grasp and topple crayons. Although I only got really serious in the last couple years or so.


Q: How old are you?

A: Ah, but does it really matter, since we're all young at heart? But in all seriousness, I'm sorry, but I'm not going to outright say it most likely. Privacy and all that; same thing goes with where I live. I guess I'm going to have to remain an ageless mystery, ho ho! I will say this, however: I'm still in high school.


Q: Are you self-taught?

A: Well, yes, I've learned a lot of things from seeing how other people work and personal experimentation. But I've also taken classes that have helped a great deal as well. So I'd say it's a mix of the two.


Q: How long have you been drawing digitally?

A: Hummm... several years, I believe. It's been a while, for sure.


Q: What do you draw?

A: Humans! Humans everywhere. But I am partial to dragons, birds, canines, and dinosaurs. Creatures, really. I used to be big into dragons and horses when I was younger.


Q: What won't you draw?

A: Basically anything that warrants a warning; excessive violence, nudity, or just anything super vulgar or questionable. I don't mind some blood though, as you'll see when perusing my gallery. Demon-related things are iffy for me too, it depends.


Q: Can I use your art for ect?

A: Unless I've specifically given you the art in question (in which case, you're the owner, do as you please), please don't use any of my art for anything without at least asking me. I probably wouldn't mind as long as you credited me, but again; please, please ask first. It's courteous, and I'd really appreciate it.


Q: Will you make me/do ect?

A: I only do requests when specifically asked for in one of my journals. Please don't beg excessively. It won't get you anywhere.


Q: What's your name, or what can I call you?

A: Feel free to call me Hay, Hayhay, Monkey, Koda, Kodai, Kody... whatever floats your boat! As long as it isn't something obviously mean, I'm good!

Thanks for the fav! Oh and not to eavesdrop on your other comments, but I noticed you were buying subscriptions to avoid having all the annoying ads. Just download a free adblocker app (like Simple Adblock) for your browser. Works nicely! :D I use it all the time. It even words on youtube video ads.
