Someone asked if I had a collection of all the avatars I've had, because they look good. Well, no, I didn't, until now, when I made a thread with all of them, which I was planning on doing but kind of forgot for a while.


I have a decent amount of commissioned art. I am going to post it here, because I think a lot of it is nice, and so that everyone else can see it too. These will be in chronological order for the most part. (Or at least this post will, the rest is kind of a crapshoot.)

The images are big and will probably break some tables. Too bad.




These are all monthly Patreon awards from @AruyaDraws on Twitter. She is cool, and good, and I'm glad to support her for going on a year and a half. It's fun to see the progression over time from "male warrior but female" to what it is now. I've certainly changed over the last years...



month 1. still a xerox of a male warrior, just as a girl instead.


month 2. the same, but now the view from behind.


month 3. sleepy, and with something different for clothing. i'd later come back to this sort of idea and eventually ditch the silly chest bandana.
this is actually my "lewd" account avatar, though it's suggestively cropped there.


month 4. I paid extra for this one because it's fancy and has a background and full body.
it keeps with my tradition of stealing good ideas, except now i'm really small.
this is a throwback to ... something, but that's better left elsewhere; just enjoy your tiny demon friend, ok?


month 5? I think the previous one might've occupied more than one month or something. anyway, without any input from me the artist decided to just do a series with different disgaea weapons as filler. this one is a sword.


6. it's hard to tell, but this one is a spear. (i keep seeing it as a giant dagger, though.)


7. here's a staff. it's also a direct front view; it looks a little weird, but not bad per se. just different.


8. as in "frustr8". i guess. bad times.


9. please stay affixed to the xerox machine. sometimes when i'm particularly stressed out, depressed, or exhausted, my voice goes totally monotone and i talk kind of weird. this is a bit of a representation of that, in a way. i think the pose is a little too "looking down on someone" though, but i wasn't very descriptive.

this is where 10 would be, except it's a picture of raspberry.


11. i decided to experiment with long and gradient hair, featuring pink to cyan. it came out pretty nice, but it got a lot better.


12. this is where i started deciding to ditch the old clothes and go for more casual stuff. i wanted something relaxing, and this was what she had; apparently we both had really comfy chairs earlier in life and that's how we spent some downtime, so that's what came out


13. oh goodness. this is the one i use as an avatar pretty much everywhere now, because it's so good. look at that image. it's adorable


14. back to the xerox machine please. the mood for this one was "pensive". it's currently the avatar for my private not-lewd account. the colors are nice.


15. My headspace is a house on a beach; so, here's... a beach. It's a very gentle picture and I like the atmosphere. There's also an alternate version with more beach-friendly clothing, because who wears actual clothes to a beach, jeez.


16. The months at this point mostly stop mattering, since the artist has been busy and I have been indecisive. In any case, this is the 16th one; it's a work in progress and I'll replace it with the final one later. Eventually I will probably put this as a header for my journal. here's the full version.

Here are some ones by Tiff, who makes really cool plushies. You should buy some.


This is a goofy one because, nya.



This is one she drew for me out of nowhere, probably because I talk a lot about wanting to give all my friends hugs.



In case you were somehow unaware to this point, Draco is the best Puyo character and we are totally best buds.



Here is me smooching Raspberry, because Raspberry is cool and good.



Many keese!



On my private, I posted about how on a rather terrible night I managed to at least fool myself into feeling better by visualizing headpats. I woke up to this. I am not going to complain, because it is good.



Tiff said she was cute. I agreed. She called me cute. I disagreed. Somehow it devolved into "foxy" comments and I said that, no, Raspberry is the fox, and then Tiff came back and drew this. Welp.



Gaoooo! There's a second version that has some more padding so I could make an avatar out of it.



"X and the mystery of the big-ass timer"



extremely very poofy hair



oh jeez. I said based on all the art I've gotten recently I should really get a dark gray hoodie, and then she replied with this.




Tiff is real good. Please buy her plushies. They are good, and soft.

Here are things not done by those two!


A modified Disgaea 1 sprite by Krisan, for helping discombobulate that game.



Something by @ExaltedMagic for my 2017 birthday.


Sketch by @ExaltedMagic, just because. I had some money burning a hole in my wallet.



Here is something neat done by someone who wanted to stay anonymous.

It is a colored version of something from a while ago:




A goof hugging another goof dressed as another goof.



Huh, weird. The date on these files is 2005. Where did these come from?

These are all very cute! I really like the change to the gradient hair, btw. Fond of pink and blue together in general.

Hey, at some point you should commission a character sheet, for uh, other people who might want to draw you?

I have thought about it a lot but I don't really know where to get one. Most of these are largely just "do whatever" (certainly the weapon ones were, but I'm not complaining.)

Plus, the original artist for most of these is really busy these days...

I did, uh, a hoodie thing. It's extreeeemely not original, just kind of like, the one you have, but the way I draw, I guess.

I hope you like it!

It's… I feel bad that I referenced AruyaDraws's drawing soooo heavily. :/ I really should have tried a bit harder there to be more original, but I started out just kind of fucking about, and then I wanted to see what a little colour would look like… then I wound up rendering and… yeah.

It forced me to think about how hoodies actually work. Which you'd think I'd have already done during years of drawing Homestuck farts, but… yeah nah.

Picture is a lot bigger btw if you view it in another tab.

I don't think it's necessarily bad as much as it's more reinforcement that I need a good refsheet at some point

Yeah and I'm taking very stylised features and trying to "flesh them out" into semi-realistic ones, which is always going to be weird and open to possibly grossly incorrect interpretations.

Like, there's a bare line suggesting a nose, but I took the angle to mean perhaps more of an upturned nose? And I always knew the smirk combined with more realistically proportioned mouth position and lips was… going to be different, at least.

It's not bad, just different. Those sorts of details were never really built in the first place and were always just taken for granted, as realism wasn't really in the cards

I have to add this one to the list, too, because I just had to comment that the foxy one was Raspberry (being... a fox) and then this happened.

Yep, these really are amazing. And the headpats one is awww

...yeah, who'd wear actual clothes to a beach! And put a bath towel over their head to block the sun, and watch Game Center CX (IIRC) on their PSP, while everyone else's enjoying beach-y stuff instead. ...no one! That didn't happen, that's all hypothetical.

I wasn't really sure which one I would like more, so she ended up drawing both, and in retrospect I like the one with non-beach clothing better. I'm not sure why, but I think it just fits me better...

Finally someone who understands what the appropriate may to act around bats is!

Less swords and fireballs and more kisses, or in this case keeses?

Echoing earlier statements, these are great. Especially like the headpats one.
