“In a light too bright to behold.”
I can’t remember if I promised Emil eye candy or if I just did this out the blue. Either way here’s Emil in his favorite lake
He learned to love nature due to his childhood. He’d rather spend the night under the stars rather than spend it on the floor of his father’s trailer. He and Dominic built a cabin together as part of his rehab and it sits on a huge lake. Emil still goes there to relax and skinny dip. For someone who does Emil is still super pale – I know. He’s one shade whiter than the clouds. I thought about giving him a tan in this but I was more concerned with the nude version… I might also do a night version – there’s something skinny dipping at night that’s just great 🙂
Into the Light is indeed a Prince song
I checked the facts and it’s been 10 years since I first created Sonya. The sweetheart telepath we all know and love! She’s come so far and changed so much. Back when she had long hair she was a romance writer with no powers dating a sullen, dark horror writer we all know as Darkly. Needless to say a story about writers was NOT exciting. Years later I would revamp the two love birds as part of the super powered crew of Illegal Tender. According to the time stamps Sonya first got her signature asymmetric bob haircut in 2010 (incidentally that’s when I had that haircut too). And she’s been getting progressively more ‘wind-swept’ ever since LOL
You can literally see her go from meek to chic 🙂 That’s how you tighten-up a drawing style, I was still very anime-esque during her creation. The second pic you can see where I started thick, western comic lines. Eventually I learned to color the lines and make them not so stark in her fair hair. My new shading technique evens out the tones. In a few years I’m probably evolve again and hopefully Sonya will still be around.

“I wanna be all of the things you are to me”
Good Lord I’ve been trying to finish this for a month. I sketched this out a while back and it kept getting pushed back by the comic. I first sketched Zen by herself wearing those pants back in January I think. And I spotted the perfect heels for Del just earlier today so got it done finally.
I always love the fact the tiny little Del is this super strong badass. Lifting her 5’9 girlfriend with ease. They are so precious – I’ve been thinking about how they actually meet in the comics. I had an old scenario but that’s null and void seeing how they’re not secret agents anymore. I’m thinking it’s after Del opens the bar and Zen comes in looking for a job. Del at the time is not being completely honest with herself and proceeds to be super awkward around Zen while she tries to get a handle on how she feels. Cause let’s face it, Zen is a freakin Goddess – long wavy hair, plump lips, thick runners thighs. Zen obviously sees Del’s confusion and makes the first move… yup she kisses her boss cause Zen don’t give a crap about what might have happened if she read the signals wrong. LOL

“This thing we got, it’s alive.”
Check out my girls – all decked out and ready to break hearts. I pride myself of getting their personalities to come across in stand alone pictures. Zen is flirtatious but kind of mean. Lily is cute but tough. Sonya is sweet and seductive. And Del is the boss – that’s all you need to know! I love my girls 🙂

“It’s all about being free”
These two – I love drawing them. They’re just so night and day as far as style and personality goes. Their names are literally Sonny & Dark. And Darkly just loves his Sonya. He’s had girlfriends before but he didn’t really love them the way he loves Sonya. And Sonya loves her ‘gloomy bear’ – with his black Timberlands and scull shirts. If you love this couple then you don’t have to worry about anything happening to them cause they are my favorite and I’d never do anything to split them up 🙂

Emil knew she was close by. Not just because he could smell her sweet scent but because he could feel her. Ever since that day three years ago their convergence hadn’t faded and he could feel Kiddo in his head. His heart beat faster. Even though he was outside her presence filled the area. That amazing power of hers arriving two minutes before she did. He wasn’t sure what made him look up but when he craned his head back her soft lips were suddenly on his. She descended from the bright white clouds like an angel. Floating just over his shoulder. It was nice to know that she was always somewhere here on Earth.
These two are too stinking cute for their own good. I sketched this out while I was at my temp job last week and I’m just now finishing it. One of those pics where I was more excited about the sketch – the finished product is just kind of… meh. But I still like it – love these two cuties. How can you not? Especially when Emil brings flowers… lilies for his Lily. What a goof 🙂
