New year, new ID design. As I’ve been jokingly called both a “surprisingly evil perfect anime voice robot” and “evil monster lady” by people at both my workplaces, I decided to combine the best of both worlds.
I even tried out animating it a little.


LOOK AT MY BABY’S FIRST GIF RIGHT THERE.
Funfact, I got those nicknames from my coworkers from my habit of speaking in that sort of polite, sugary detached way that most Japanese tour guides do when I have to deal with problem customers.
The more annoying and abusive they are, the more I ratchet up the sweetness and helpfulness until it’s right on the border between heavy sarcasm and uncanny valley.

Done for a secret santa event run by Dauphe—I got doodlee-a, so here’s her character Shifted checking out the winter weather.

Doodlee-a’s  character has a real Thundercats vibe to her, so I was originally going to go totally mental with the usual eighties neon colorscheme I do, but then I decided to just keep it simple.

After an hour and a half of struggling with gel, hair ties, and knots/buttons in general, Ehren Chang (aka M-Zero-Oh) is finally ready for the OC Ball.
Being the dorky teenager he is, he’s not sure what the heck he’s going to do at such a fancy event, and hopes that saying “Dude I can totally transform into a super awesome robot hero thing check this out” will totally impress people.

LIES DOWN ON FLOOR LOOK AT THIS DWEEBASAUR
he really would try to impress cute guys with that line and then get all self conscious later when he realizes how dorky that sounds
finding formalish, modern and fresh menswear for this character that didn’t fall into “80s Gucci Prom tux” or “military style anything” without breaking down and picking inspirations from Yohji Yamamoto was a huge challenge for me, but I think I nailed it this time

"what a fucking doofus", I whispered as I finally nailed down the sketch for Ehren/M-Zero-Oh’s OC Ball design

I got so excited that Two Best Friends were doing a Yakuza 4 playthrough that I quickly drew up a parody of this game cover.

I love the Yakuza series, so I’m glad that the TBF are covering 4, as it’s clear that they’re also very big fans.

Featuring Pat as Kiriyu, Matt as Akiyama, Woolie as Saejima, Rising Superstar Liam as Tanimura, and starring special guest Zach the Cat as Majima Goro.

I saved these files as “Ryu Ga Zaibatsu” and “Zaibatsu 4” and could not stop cracking up while I was inking this because I’m apparently twelve years old.
