THE LONELY SISTER // They have eyes; eyes, everywhere, watching, always, and your attempts to close them only spill more blood.
I've been relistening to NeoScum and boy do I have #feelings about Pox being so tired of constantly running and always feeling like she's endangering the people she cares about just by associating with them
This finally went live so I can share my stuff! Joe organised a project to set an episode of NeoScum to a bunch of art and while it didn’t pan out quite as much like an animatic as it was originally intended to be there’s still some really killer art in there. These are the panels I did specifically for this project in their intended viewing order. I had fun doing these and figuring out how to strip down my process to draw efficiently w/o getting hung up on detail
There's a couple things I should have fixed that I didn't get to but uhhhhh pobody's nerfect. This is one of my favourite eps and favourite scenes and I'm so glad I got assigned this section specifically
drags myself on2 the dash to post this Pox I drew last night while I was waiting for my dad to get home from the supermarket with bread
Top left: Aubrey still under the... employ of Legacy of Adam, some other LoA kid faces I was playing with
Top right: Aubrey/Pox bc I thought about them interacting and even tho I don't think they're going to meet properly over the course of this crazy extended fic unverse I'm spinning rn they'd still be cute and relate to each other a lot
Bottom: a decker named Florian who I came up with intending to keep him on the bench for any Shadowrun games I might get a chance to play in in the future but I slipped and dumped him into the Scumverse instead lmao. The other dude in the bottom right is another decker named Rocky who's my scumsona and I wanted to actually do something with him instead of drawing him once and then never using him again so he's? partnered? with Florian now
HEY this is as good a post as any to be my first, I think! Some festive NeoScum goodness because boy do these people go through hell and I just want to see them all together and happy for once. Good podcast good people good characters but I cry a lot over their misery.
So, hi? I'm Ryan and I do art. I'm ghostmoor basically everywhere (twitter, mastodon.art, deviantart, tumblr, pillowfort). I like worldbuilding, character design, exploring nonhuman characters/societies in fiction, pigeons, Oddworld, and my recently-discovered love, NeoScum. Occasionally I write things. Maybe once every three years I make a song. Lately I've been into poetry but my passions for new things can burn out very quickly so we'll see where it goes. In a similar vein, I streamed part of the colouring process for the above pic and I want to stream some more in 2019. It may or may not happen, but following me on Twitter (or mastodon, if I can remember to crosspost as planned) is gonna be the best way of getting updates about that.
I have a webcomic! I haven't been good at updating it lately but I haven't forgotten about it and I still want to continue making it. You can read it at http://betastratagem.com.
