Royal Purity [COMIC]

I really need to be quick with drawing. ORZ

Thankfully I’m gaining back my momentum so I hope I become as fast as I was before all that stressful crap happened last year and be more productive and post more art. ᕦ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)ᕤ

Sooo….

This AE comic idea came from an old bbc documentary entitled, “Pedigree Dogs Exposed.” It’s an old documentary from 2008 but I only watched it a few weeks ago and I recommended it to Rin right after. It’s common knowledge by now that mutts are generally healthier than purebred dogs but it was still a very interesting…or rather, appalling and eye-opening documentary.

I always find it weird how cat owners from my experience don’t really give a crap about their cat breeds while dog owners (like me) fuss about breeds, lol. I get certain breeds have some history to it (working dog breeds for herding, etc. ) but the whole pure breed standard stuff emphasis on Pure..kinda’ seems problematic to me especially regarding the flat faced dog breeds (pugs, french and english bulldogs, etc).

Anyway, sorry for getting carried away,

the entire idea of purebred, purity or pure blood made me think of the Ancient Egyptian Royal Family who were…. inbred irl. This comic was mostly to poke fun of it. That, and I despise monarchies. It’s strange how me and Rin were talking about inbred purebred dogs and then it went to poking fun at royalty, lol.

WIP

So I have been idle for a week. I apologise for that. ORZ

As always, was occupied with rl stuff. I often end up collapsing in bed right after those,forgetting to wash my face, too ugh. But I’ve been working on more comics lately and dabbling with different hobbies during some spare time. I’m not as fast as before but I’m trying my best to finish projects as soon as possible.

It’s been three months of hell (since December 2021) and my mental state isn’t exactly in a good place. Losing two loved ones in a span of a month and a week has been very overwhelming and traumatic for me.

It sucks that I’ve planned so many personal projects this 2022 only for them to be disrupted because of unexpected tragic events. Sigh, it’s so discouraging when the year didn’t start off as I wanted to last year, but I’ll have to do what I can and adapt to these changes and…I think I can make a good start this March.

It’s not too late to regain my momentum and resume all those projects,

right?

Anyway, here’s a WIP of some comic I’m planning to finish this weekend. 🙂

i need to improve more in drawing.

hobo doodles

I’m an idiot for putting so many washes on this paper, lol. You can see the red ink (the 2021 thing) bleeding through the page because I treated this as a thick watercolour paper for some strange reason.

It still managed to hold well, though. That red ink was the only one that bled through the page. The rest didn’t so that’s a plus.

Yep, I can’t wait for September 1 so I can buy 2022’s hobo planner, lol.

Not going to lie, it curbed my chaotic and messy mentality and mannerisms. I was able to write personal thoughts out and draw daily this year (which I thought was impossible for me) so I had to stash and save up for a 2022 version. ^^

The price makes you motivated to not waste your money and draw or write something each day, lol. I could not bear to miss one page . But it’s reasonable considering its like 365 + pages of tomoe river paper and a nifty planner and sketchbook all in one. (It won’t be able to handle alcohol based materials so no copics/promarkers and sharpies if you don’t want it to bleedthrough!)

Snore

I realised that I haven’t posted and drawn as many personal art these past few months due to very hectic rl stuff earlier this year which is quite frustrating. My output has decreased quite significantly compared to last year so I thought of doing daily weekday doodles starting this week.

My goal is to draw anything, be it fanart or original art, a messy sketch/doodle, painting, comic or just a WIP/thumbnail and upload it here on WP, tumblr and twitter from Mondays to Fridays. ^_^

….hopefully I meet that goal, gah. I have to. ORZ

Anyway, here’s Citronshipping gag strip. 😀

Below is the thumbnail/storyboard of the comic. 😀

COMIC: CITRON AE (AU) – The Rat Race

Finally done with this chibi comic strip. ^__^ (thanks Rin for all the help and support <3)

[ READ MORE ]

This idea was inspired from how people especially in my generation struggle with the “rat race” of life. Basically, achieving almost everything (house and lot, a married life with a child/children, 9-5 job, financial stability) early, most likely in your twenties or in your early thirties under a competitive routine and environment. /cough/30under30lists/cough/

I was wondering how it was like back in the Ancient Egyptian times and from what I’ve researched, girls were married as young as thirteen years old while boys were married at an average age between 16 to 20 years old.

I exaggerated the “ideal age” here as this was mostly a gag. And maybe Mr. Ishtar’s generation (AE boomers) had the Ancient Egyptian Dream earlier than 16 years old.

Anyway, I don’t want to overexplain myself on this comic, lol. I’m super fatigued that I’ve been having difficulty with finding the right words to say. My brain is deep fried right now but ya get the point. You don’t have to follow society’s life script and be pressured into doing and buying shit because others are. That’ll just lead to a life of regret and resentment especially if you just did it to catch up with the Joneses and not being patient and in tune with yourself and what you really want in life. And that’s something I try to tell myself everyday when I feel insecure about where I am in life, lol.

Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.” – Henry David Thoreau

TLDR; I need some sleep.

thumbnail? maybe?

A spur of the moment sketch based on some citron comic idea.

It’s more of a thumbnail sketch for a cover of some comic if ever.

I need to do more sketching.

Malik looks pretty off here lol but whatevs. I’ll just practice more I guess.

Commission 07

Here’s a Malik crying over Bakura commission for NintendoGal55 ❤
