Getting Back Into Art

Post by LadyStormcrow » Sun Nov 26, 2017 10:13 pm

I've determined that I really do want to get back into drawing, to the point that I've even asked for a graphic tablet for Christmas. In the meantime, I'll be posting stuff and doing some crude coloring that will hopefully still be enjoyed.

To start with:

Image

My take on Katrina Moorkroft from the unfinished episode "Succubus!". I pictured her with a very monochrome night/moon color scheme, to contrast with the more warmly colored main cast. For the actual design, I borrowed a lot from Morticia Addams (since Nancy Linari voiced her in the Hanna Barbera Addams Family cartoon), with some of Elise Lenoir mixed in. I also tried to give her a faintly batlike look, with the opera cape and big, forward-facing ears.

I love your take on Katrina. I’ve always been partial to the dark gray colors. The choice in colors make her look elegant and sleek in my opinion.

I’m glad you are going to draw more! Cause I want to see more :3

Get out of my head, woman! I’ve been trying to work out a design of her for awhile and this is near spot on to what I think her design would be. White fur, black hair, elegant fashionable dress, pretty but a hint of deviousness. Really like this, Stormcrow and glad to see more art from you!

I love your character design! She has a noble bearing from a bygone era, but there's a predatory nature about her. Makes you feel like a mouse trapped in a corner just looking at her eyes.

I look forward to seeing more of your artwork! MadkatUpIcon

I said it on Discord, but that's one awesome rendition of Katrina! RazorLoveCait

Yes! I'd love to see more of your art, LSC. You have some fun character designs. I shall chime in on enjoying seeing your take on Katrina. (Anytime a fan tries to design her I am interested in seeing.) She definitely fits the part.

:oops: :) I'm really flattered you guys liked my take on Katrina so much! I still feel very out of practice with drawing, but I'll keep working at it.

Moving on from canon characters to OCs, and continuing the topic of she-kats with a thing for Commander Feral:

Image

Dr. Miriam Shahal, a physical therapist who specializes in teaching patients to use prostheses. She hails from the nation of Khahtul-Bahr (the katworld version of Israel), where she once served as a field medic in her country's army - that mark on her jaw is a shrapnel scar. She and Feral meet when she's assigned as his therapist after he undergoes a life-changing injury, which leads to a very inconvenient mutual attraction (since a therapist getting involved with a patient is a huge no-no).

Basically, I wanted her to look like the anti-Katrina: warm coloring, a more solid build, and practical working clothes (in this case, the scrubs and sneakers she wears when working with patients). I also wanted to play with having a she-kat who has hair the same color as her fur, like many of the male kats on the show do - since Miriam's based on a lioness, I thought she'd be a good candidate.

I like the back story on Dr. Miriam Shahal. I also like that you attempted the same hair and fur color. It works well for her :3
