Cherik: Early Winter

For this year’s Secret Mutant exchange (a holiday season gift exchange in the X-Men fandom) I drew a little 5 page comic.
I had a prompt for the plot, and I had too little time for this, but — here it is.

Winter has come early, and the nights are freezing cold — but Erik’s apartment building’s slumlord owner, Sebastian Shaw, flatly refuses to turn on the heat until he feels like it. Maybe Erik can finally coax his roommate Charles into sharing his bed, or curling up together on the couch under many blankets. Purely for surviving the night, of course.

Halloween & Wardrobe Memes

I took some more requests over at tumblr. For the wardrobe meme, people get to request a character and an outfit; for the Halloween meme there were several prompts to choose from. I use these things as warming-up practise, so they’re usually not very serious.

Cherik Kissing Memes

A few memes from pixiv, because kisses are hard to draw and I needed some warm-up practice…

Traumfänger 3.0

Der Manga Mixx #10 wird voraussichtlich doch noch dieses Jahr erscheinen, deswegen überarbeite ich gerade nochmal unseren Beitrag für die Publikation.

Es ist merkwürdig, zwei Jahre später nochmal so ein Projekt anzufassen. Einige Panels haben sich im Laufe der Zeit wahnsinnig verändert. Selbst wenn man sich irgendwo verbessert, gewöhnt man sich an anderer Stelle oft irgendwelche Macken an. Ich bin gespannt, wohin das noch führen wird… :D

Draw this again meme

I found this really, really old drawing on my computer. I estimate I drew this in 2001. Probably with a mouse because I didn’t have a tablet yet.

I figured this was a good time to do the improvement meme that’s so popular over at deviantart.

Other people improve like this in a year and it took me something like 13, but I guess this shows you just have to keep going? :D

Emofuri

Recently I discovered Emofuri, a Japanese software that helps you animate characters. It is very addictive and, sadly, incredibly buggy.

I tried it out anyway. The results are rather adorable, but since the software is such a pain to use, I don’t think i’ll be making any more for now.

If you’re interested, you can download Emofuri here. (There are lots English tutorials around for those who don’t know Japanese.)
