“Yeah, we crushin’ the man”
These two are nothing but trouble. With their powers sets they could easily take over the world. Lily is nearly God tier powerful and Emil is a ridiculously skilled mercenary – the man always has knives on him, he sleeps with them under his pillow. Luckily Lily doesn’t want to be the ruler of the world and Emil is perfectly happy being a bartender.
I actually love how this came out. It was based off a ref of a knight saving a princess BUT since Lily doesn’t need saving I turned it into another ‘fight team’ pic of them. Despite how much they fight each other they do make an amazing team. I love how they’re holding on to each other – it’s like Emil is holding her to keeping himself steady as he throws and she’s holding him to keep track of him. They’re both a little too happy about attacking people. Pretty sure who ever it is they have it coming.
Can you tell I’ve been watching Black Panther over and over? I decided that these two are always going to be wearing matching bracelets 🙂
See these two in action in Happy Hour!
You could make a drinking game out of the amount of times I draw Kiddo examining her own powers. She does it once an issue at least and it’s my go to pose for her stand alone pictures. It’s always impressive. Especially when you consider how far I’ve come. I’m really trying to get a handle on this 1/4 angle – it’s kicking my ass. Still looks bizarre to me, might look better in the panels of the comic – make those standard profile shots look more dynamic. :shrug: My favorite part of Kiddo is all that luscious red hair. I knew I wanted her to be wearing green before I even drew her clothes. Can you tell that I’m been reading X-men lately? Thought I’d draw my own all powerful ginger and flex my technique and fashion muscle a little. Not really a fan of X-men Blue cause it’s a friggin mess. Gold and Red are by far my favorites because it has my man as a main character. Just got done reading Phoenix Resurrection and I’m gonna dive into some Rogue and Gambit just cause I love them so much

Last time I drew Del she was fast asleep. This time she’s wide awake and ready to make someone sorry they messed with her. Dressed to kill – my badass boss lady. Y’know I’m realizing a lot of my pictures start because I see a cute pair of shoes on pinterest. The original pair were peep toe but I put a gold toe on this cause you can’t really see the front at this angle. Speaking of which I thought it had been a while since I played around with the perspective tool in CSP. This time instead of an arial shot I thought I’d try a mid-height city, on a glass balcony just to torture myself. Two things I suck at: drawing water and drawing glass.

Rather random drawing of Sonya I felt like doing after finishing issue #6. Yup! Issue #6 is now officially remastered and formatted and with luck it’ll be printed this month! You only see Sonya for about three panels in issue #6 and maybe that’s why I drew her – I missed her. Plus it’s spring time now and if there’s any season that fits my bright girl it’s spring. She’s all bright colors and flowers and beautiful things. My pretty Sonya 🙂
Pic is called ‘Baby Knows’ cause she can read minds…

Man it’s been a while since I drew Lily strutting her stuff. And there was this pair of boots that needed to be drawn so here we are. Still staying true to her old mission clothes look of a crop shirt and ankle boots. I love her in that lipstick – I’ve been wanting to branch out as far as their makeup goes for a while now. I was in a color rut with my current palette so I loaded a palette I haven’t used in years and sure enough that purple caught my eye. Coupled with the awesome lines I did in Clip Studio and my new color style I love his this came out!
PLECTRUMELECTRUM is an awesome Prince song and it fits Lily so well.
