hi. it’s almost 6 in the mroning an there was a “dedline” to finish this 6-panel folding single-sheet comic by today because of Reasons. which is why i am posting it on australia time.
this is a promotional/one-off/for-fun Black Hole Wizard comic, written by Simon for me to sort of practice on. despite loving comics more than maybe any other kind of illustration, i’ve never had the flaps to really pursue them UNTIL NOW
i’m not happy with this piece but i AM happy about finishing it so——-

Emotive reference sheet for the protagonist of Black Hole Wizard.
I’m actually not super happy with these but I lost about two weeks to The Void recently and crawling back out has been slow going. Right now I just want this to be posted and done so please forgive the problems.

This is page 1 of 2 pages of emotive prompts just to help me get used to drawing Qutaybah. As you can see I’m not super settled yet, and he’s still pretty off-model in a lot of ways ugh
Anyway I think the hair/beard style will change in-story. Not from panel to panel obviously, but I braid and style my hair different from day to day in real life so I have never really been on board with dressing Qu in a “uniform” in the traditional cartoon sense. Curly hair in particular is a thing that lends itself to being fucked with, if only to keep it out of your way.

i dont know but im going to bed. this is getting close to the final design, which i wanted to have figured out by now but. the mouth is too broad at the moment to work well with long hair and i think i’m going to have to sacrifice it. this is the first character i’ve designed that has to be appealing to me to draw, and absolutely has to have a beard. i’ve been pussyfooting around the beard for days. i get the impression he dislikes his beard as much as I do, but wizards have beards. it is the rules.

It was my grandmother’s birthday a few days ago so I drew this for her. She really loves cats.
Black Hole Wizard face-finding expedition, featuring demons on the right, including one little faun based on Kurt’s butt picture from last night. I really really really love his skin pattern; he looks like a little fawn-faun.
here is a sketch from a few days ago. this is a concept i’ve been doodling for a couple years now, one of those fascinating concepts to no one but myself. prior to this I hadn’t paired the skullgrinding with any sort of ritual context, it just was. this is now looking like a pretty good candidate for the next Rent Boy.
