Welcome to Kobb's little tumblr! This is primarily an art blog, but I do some rebloggin' now and then. If you want just the art, this tag is for you! If you only want to see original stuff, my fanart-free tag is right here.
Currently I'm drawing for a webcomic called Beyond the Western Deep! Update reminders are usually posted here weekly.
Finally scanned some doodles from a couple months ago, inspired by a forum RP thread that sadly died right as things were about to get good. Krax and a couple other krogan (one of them nearly old enough to remember the salarian uplift) get trapped in the ruins of an old hangar/bunker during a massive sandstorm on Tuchanka. Tensions immediately flared, especially since Krax’s armor betrays him as Imperial (the forum timeline saw the formation of a fledgling Krogan Empire, which not all clans support)…
I was doodling aimlessly yesterday afternoon, and this character popped out. She’s a cat mutant, drawn with the TMNT 2012 universe in mind. Very stealthy, quick, and nearly black - she barely shows up even in the shadows. I imagine some cool shots where the Turtles are doing their thing in the foreground, and suddenly you see her eyes reflecting light from a dark alley behind them…
I have half a mind to play with this more, maybe emulate the inky style from the official character concept artwork we’ve seen. Time will tell.
Some concepts from my backburner’d griffin story, Refugee. Given that the plot involves a griffin society in its stone age (with an individual trying out smelting at one point) I wondered if using pure four-legged griffins might look a little odd handling tools. This was a test to see if I could inject the slightest flavor of bipedalism, to make them feel “primitive” without going too anthropomorphic.
It’s hard! Most of these are too “critter,” with a couple that are too “anthro.” The guy second from the top left was the first one I drew, and remained my favorite throughout. Still not sure what to think of the experiment or its results, but I’m glad I did it?
(recommended: view on youtube - dialog is in text and kinda small)
So here’s that thing I’ve been picking at on the side for far too long now! I started it before TMNT 2012 premiered and didn’t initially intend for it to fall within that universe at first (hence the different lair layout) but over time I gave in and let Mikey warp into his 2012 self. X)
It’s messy and I really want to go in and fix a thousand things (probably will!), but I figure the tumbles might enjoy this first pass regardless. :3
