Head of Jokes

🇩🇪 Diese Woche kann ich gleich zwei gute Vorsätze der letzten Woche einhalten.

1. Nach Merdusa habe ich nun auch Nema fertiggestellt und ihr ebenso einen Charakterbogen gegönnt. Während meiner bisherigen Mermays hatte sie bisher insgesamt 11 Auftritte, 3 in 2019, 3 in 2020 und 5 in 2021. Auch hier habe ich, im Vergleich zu 2019 deutlich, im Vergleich zu 2020 immer noch erkennbar, eine leichte Designänderung hauptsächlich an Kopf und Gesicht vorgenommen.

Nema ist eine Clownfisch-Meerjungfrau, weshalb sie einige Merkmale mit dieser Fischart gemein hat. Nema und Merdusa verbindet eine innige (mehr Hass denn Liebe) Hassliebe. Wo Merdusa eine ernste Herangehensweise im Leben hat, genießt Nema die Leichtigkeit des Seins. Dies färbt zugleich auf Merdusa ab, die dieser Leichtigkeit eine gewisse Faszination abgewinnen kann, Nema zugleich aber immwieder auch aus gefährlichen Situationen retten muss, denen Nema sich nicht einmal bewusst ist.

Aufgrund ihrer clownfischeigenen Immunität gegen vielerlei Gifte, war es ihr möglich, bereits während des Mermays 2019, Merdusas Garten zu betreten und dort allerlei Unfug anzustellen. Auf diese Weise sind die beiden sich begegnet (und schließlich nähergekommen):

🇬🇧 This week I can keep two good resolutions from last week.

After Merdusa, I now completed Nema, too, and granted her a character sheet. During my Mermays so far she had a total of 11 appearances, 3 in 2019, 3 in 2020 and 5 in 2021. Compared to 2019 clearly, compared to 2020 still recognizable, I have made a slight design change mainly to head and face.

Nema is a clownfish mermaid, which is why she has some characteristics in common with this species of fish. Nema and Merdusa share an intimate (more hate than love) love-hate relationship. Where Merdusa has a no-nonsense attitude to life, Nema happy-go-luckily enjoys the lightness of being. This also rubs off on Merdusa, who is fascinated by this lightness, but at the same time has to rescue Nema from dangerous situations, of which Nema is not even aware.

Due to her clownfish immunity to most poisons, she was able to enter Merdusa’s garden already during Mermay 2019 for joking around thorougly. This is how the two met (and eventually became close):

2. Mein erster Beitrag für das Arcryla-City Valentins-Event ist fertig. Zuletzt wurden Crissy und Paula während eines nächtlichen Zeppelinfluges gesehen. Das Anschlussbild hierzu ist noch immer in Bearbeitung, dennoch sind die beiden inzwischen soweit, dass Paula Crissy ihre Lieblingsblume zeigen kann:

My first entry to the Arcryla City Valentine’s event is finished. Crissy and Paula were last seen at a Zeppelin Night Flight. The follow-up painting is still in progress, yet the two are now ready for Paula to show Crissy her favorite flower:

Flowers

The day Paula showed Crissy her favourite flower – and the flower showing a good taste in Crissy.

Digital painting, comic style: My OCs Crissy Faith (to the right, 3/4 front view, short purple hair, big round glasses, yellow bellyfree top, yellow and black striped trousers) and Paula (to the left, side view, light green short hair, bangs turned to the right side of the head, wearing a bellyfree brown leather top, fingerfree gloves two smaller and one big girdle, the lips are coloured green, she hat nail polish in the colours orange, white, rose and purple on the visible fingers); Paula is holding a pot with a carnivorous plant, the plant looks satisfied, on it's "head" a tiny daisy is growing; Crissy is blushing and sucking the digit of her right hand, looking suspiciously to the plant; the blurred background is the frame of some windows, you can see some green outside of the building.

🇩🇪 Die Neu-Zeichnung Merdusas von letzter Woche sollte nur der Auftakt zu einer Reihe weiterer Mermaid-OC-Bildern sein. Und diesmal habe ich es sogar geschafft (zeitnah) diese Reihe weiterzuführen … sort of.

Mein nächster Mermay-OC befindet sich bereits work in progress, zuvor jedoch habe ich diese Woche noch einen Charakterborgen für Merdusa erstellt, um diese endlich einmal richtig vorzustellen, abseits dessen, was ihr hier auf diesen Seiten und in diesem PaintLog in der Vergangenheit bereits habt erfahren können.

Doch auch an anderer Stelle kündigt sich Neues am Horizont an:

Aus Arcryla City stehen gleich zwei neue Bilder ins Haus. Passend zum Valentingstag gibt es ein Valentings-Event mit einer Promptliste und ich werde natürlich nicht zögern, hier etwas zusammenzuzeichnen.

An dem anderen Bild arbeite ich bereits seit einer geraumen Weile zusammen mit meiner Kollaborationspartnerin Potato Beta. Es wird die Geschichte von Paula + Crissy und Potato + Conway, fortschreiben, die mit dem Sleepover begann und bisher bis zum Zeppelin Night Ride führte. Bislanng ist noch nicht abzusehen, wann es fertiggestellt sein soll, ich hoffe jedoch, dass wir es in den nächsten Wochen finalisieren können.

🇬🇧 Last week’s redraw of Merdusa was only meant to be the kick-off to a series of more Mermaid OC paintings. And this time I even managed to continue this series (in a timely manner) … sort of.

The next Mermay OC The next character is already work in progress, but before that I created a character sheet for Merdusa to finally introduce her properly, apart from what you have already learned here on this website and in this PaintLog in the past.

But there are also other news on the horizon:

There are two new pictures going to come from Arcryla City. Fitting for Valentine’s Day there is a Valentines event with a prompt list and of course I won’t hesitate to draw something together here.

I’ve been working on the other painting for quite a while now with my collaboration partner Potato Beta. It will continue the story of Paula + Crissy and Potato + Conway, which began with the Sleepover and has so far led up to the Zeppelin Night Ride. As of yet, there is no word on when it will be completed, but I hope we can finalize it within the next few weeks.

Slowly …

🇩🇪 Nachdem der letzte Sonntag bzw. die Woche davor mich nicht haben hetzten können, um um jeden Preis irgendwas Neues präsentieren zu können, kam ich in der vergangenen Woche langsam zurück ins Leben und habe erneut einen meiner Lieblings-Mermay-OCs gezeichnet: Merdusa.

Wir erinnern uns: Das erste Mal zeichnete ich sie im Mermay 2019, gemeinsam mit ihrer („Nenn sie nicht so!“) besseren Hälfte Nema hatte sie im Mermay 2020 eine wiederkehrende Rolle und war auch im Mermay 2021 wieder mit von der Partie. Vor diesem hatte ich sie außerdem als druckbares T-Shirt Motiv bearbeitet und hinterher auch noch zusammen mit Nema für den Pride Month 2021 dekoriert (siehe Bildergalerie).

Bei dem jetzigen Bild haben wir es nicht so mehr mit einem Redraw zu tun, sondern mehr mit einem Verschmelzen bisheriger Bilder. Das Design ist seit Mermay 2020 relativ konstakt (der größte Sprung ist aufgrund geänderter Zeichentechnik von 2019 auf 2020).

Eigentlich hatte ich weder einen detailierten Vorder- noch Hintergrund geplant, sondern den ersten Part für ein Gruppenbild aller meiner Haupt-Mermay-Meerjungfrauen. Merdusa sollte die erste sein, Hintergrund unnötig. Da sich ein weißer Körper auf beigem Papier(hintergrund) aber nicht sonderlich verträgt, kam eins zum anderen und plötzlich hatte ich ein vollwertiges Bild.

Besonders spannend fand ich diesmal, mit der Beleuchtung zu spielen. Die Wellen und Lichter im Wasser erzeugen Muster auf Merdusas Haut und das Grün des Meeresbodens spiegelt sich auf den Schuppen des Schlangenkörpers.

Hervorzuhaben ist zudem, dass Clip Studio Paint Zugang zu einem umfangreichen Arsenal von Pinseln und Farbverläufen bietet (und, wie ich kürzlich erfuhr, sogar Photoshop-Pinsel importieren kann). Auf diese Weise kamen sowohl der Farbverlauf des Meereswassers wie auch die Fische im Hinter- und die Pflanzen im Vordergrund zustande.

🇬🇧 After last Sunday and the week before I didn’t allow them to press me to present anything new at any price, I slowly came back to life last week and drew one of my favourite Mermay OCs again: Merdusa.

We remember: The first time I drew her was in Mermay 2019, together with her („Don’t call her that!“) better half Nema she had a recurring role in Mermay 2020 and was back again in Mermay 2021. Before the latter, I had also created her as a printable T-shirt motif and afterwards also decorated her together with Nema for Pride Month 2021 (see picture gallery).

The current painting is not so much a redraw, but more a merging of mentioned previous ones. The design is relatively constant since Mermay 2020 (the biggest jump is due to changed drawing technique from 2019 to 2020).

Actually I didn’t plan neither a detailed foreground nor background, but the first part for a group painting of all my main Mermay mermaids. Merdusa should be the first, background unnecessary. Since a white body doesn’t quite match with beige paper (background), one came to the other and suddenly I had a full-fledged painting.

I was particularly excited to play with the lighting this time. The waves and lights in the water create patterns on Merdusa’s skin and the green of the seabed is reflected on the scales of the snake’s body.

It’s also worth noting that Clip Studio Paint offers access to an extensive arsenal of brushes and gradients (and, as I recently learned, can even import Photoshop brushes). That’s how the gradient of the ocean water came about, as well as the fish in the background and the plants in the foreground.

Linktober’s Past

🇩🇪 Fast könnte man sagen, der Alltag hat mich wieder. Kaum ist der Linktober rum, sitze ich wieder verstärkt an zwei Arcryla-City-Bildern. Eines davon habe ich als Work in Progress bereits auf Patreon und Ko-fi hochgeladen, wo ihr sie als Dank für eine kleine Unterstützung gerne bereits einsehen könnt.

Zudem habe ich in der verganenen Woche erneut für jemanden ein Bild zur Verwendung als Emoji gezeichnet:

🇬🇧 You could almost say that everyday drawing has got me back. No sooner is Linktober over than I’m working on two Arcryla City paintings again. I have already uploaded one of them as a work in progress to Patreon and Ko-fi, where you are welcome to view it as a thank you for a little support.

Additionally, last week I again draw a painting for someone which will be used as emoji:

Ganz entlassen aus dem Linktober waren ich und ihr jedoch noch nicht. Die Idee, auch Cheio, jene Fee, die meinen OC Navarra durch den Linktober begleitet hat, ebenfalls zu zeichnen, kam mir bereits sehr früh und in den letzten Oktober- und ersten Novembertagen bin ich dann auch zur Tat geschritten.

Es ist zugegebenermaßen allerdings bereits so etwas wie ein Redesign, da sie sich doch ein wenig von dem unterscheidet, was man in den ursprünglichen Linktober-Bildern erahnen kann:

However, I and you weren’t yet completely released from Linktober. The idea of drawing Cheio, the fairy who accompanied my OC Navarra through Linktober, came to me very early, and in the last days of October and the first days of November I actrually did so.

Admittedly, it’s already something like a redesign because she looks slighly different from the form you can guess by looking on the Linktober paintings.

Und wie immer nach solchen Monatschallenges gibt es natürlich auch eine Collage mit sämtlichen Zeichnungen und diesmal sogar noch ein Video dazu obendrauf:

As usual after those month’s challenges, I also did a collage with all of the paintings and this time there also is a video on top:

The Adventures of Linktober

🇩🇪 Der Oktober ist morgen offiziell zu Ende.

Erst kürzlich habe ich erfahren, dass der Oktober auch Dysautonomia Awareness Month ist. Bis dahin kannte ich dies selber nicht, nun hat jedoch Potato_Beta auf Instagram ein DTIYS zu dem Thema ausgerichtet, an dem ich ebenfalls teilgenommen habe.

Wenn ihr selber gerne an DTIYS teilnehmt oder auch wenn nicht, empfehle ich euch, ihre Challenge einmal anzuschauen.

🇬🇧 Tomorrow October officially will come to an end.

Only recently I learned that October also is Dysautonomia Awareness Month. I didn’t know it until then but now Potato_Beta on Instagram announced a DTIYS about this topic in which I participated.

If you like to join DTIYS’s or even if not, I’d like to recommend to check out her challenge.

Mit dem Oktober steuert auch der Linktober nun auf seinen Showdown zu. In der letzten Woche hat Navarra Winter Island aus den Fängen der Frost Fairy befreien können.

Doch die größte Herausforderung wartet noch: Ganon!

With October coming to an end Linktober does likewise. Navarra was able to free Winter Island from the clutches of the Frost Fairy.

But the biggest challenge still is waiting for her: Ganon!

Breath of Linktober

🇩🇪 Die erste Woche Linktober ist rum. Heute starten wir ins zweite Kapitel: Summer Island.

Ich hoffe, euch gefällt der Plot soweit. Der Nachteil an solch einer Monatschallenge ist, so viel Spaß sie auch macht und so einfach sie auch gehalten ist, man kommt nur zu wenig anderem noch. Es gibt noch das eine oder andere Werk, an dem ich zur Zeit arbeite oder es zumindest am Planen bin (sprichL: Es steht auf der To-Do-Liste), zur Zeit bin ich vorwiegend aber für den Rest des Linktobers am Vorarbeiten.

Immerhin, der Plot steht bereits, auch die zweite Woche ist schon so gut wie fertig und für die dritte habe ich ebenso bereits einen Plan.

Somit wünsche ich euch weiterhin viel Spaß dabei, Navarra auf ihrem Weg zu begleiten!

🇬🇧 First week of Linktober is done. Today we are heading into Chapter 2: Summer Island.

I hope you like the plot so far. The disadvantage of such a monthly challenge is that, as much fun as it is and as simple as I’m processing it, you only get to do very little else. There are one or two other works that I’m currently working on or at least planning (i.e.: it’s on the to-do list), but at the moment I’m mainly working on the rest of the Linktober.

At least the plot is planned, the second week is nearly finisshed and the plan for the third one also already stands.

So, I still wish you much fun to accompany Navarra on her way through her adventure!

Coming soo…now!

🇩🇪 Angekündigt hatte ich es bereits vor zweite Wochen, jetzt ist es endlich fertig und ich kann es euch hier präsentieren:

Schon während des Arcryla City Summer Festivals (🇬🇧) kamen der talentieren Potato Beta (Instagram) und mir die Idee zu einem Kollaborationsprojekt, in dem ihr Arcryla-City-Charakter (Potato) meinem (Crissy) Tipps in Liebesangelegenheiten gibt. Crissy sozialisiert sich nur sehr zurückhaltend, einen Anknüpfungspunkt fanden wir trotzdem sehr schnell:

🇬🇧 I announced it already two weeks ago, now it’s finally finished and I can share it here:

The idea of a collaboration project struck the talented Potato Beta (Instagram) and me already during the Arcryla City Summer Festival. This idea was about her Arcryla City character (Potato) giving mine (Crissy) advice in matters of the heart. Crissy doesn’t socialise easily but we soon found a starting point:

Sleepover

Sooo, Crissy met Potato after her Ring Toss photo shoot, as she asked Crissy to build an Anti-G Device, so they could fly. They quickly became good friends and this evening they planned a girls‘ night!

They decided to make a sleepover, which took place on Crissy’s flat as Conway is currently living in Potato’s house and they didn’t want someone overhearing their conversations.

They ate a lot and talked a ton, and after some fish drinks true feeling came to light…

Crissy: “ So who was that guy in the photo shoot?“
Potato: “ Ummm… he was… my…. childhood friend… but now, he’s… SO I saw you flying the other day with someone who is she??? Is she your CRUSH??“
Crissy (instant blushing): „Err … Paula? … No … I mean … yes … no … perhaps …“
Potato: „Oohhh Paula… cute name! You make a nice couple! Do you plan on confessing??
Crissy (going full tomato mode): „Con… err … no … umm …“ (mumbling around) „Just a customer … don’t know … don’t think … isn’t interested in me …“

Neben diesem Bild befindet sich noch ein zweites bereits in der Zielkurve, an dem ich die letzte Woche am Arbeiten war. Da dieses jedoch für einen weiteren Showcase auf dem Arcryla-City Discord-Server bestimmt ist, werdet ihr es erst nächste Woche an der bekannten Stelle (🇬🇧) finden.

Apart from this painting there also is a second one in the final bend on which I worked last week. Because it is supposed to be presented on another Arcryla City showcase, you will find it on the known site next week.

This October!

Another year gone

🇩🇪 Diesen Absatz wollte ich eigentlich letzte Woche bereits schreiben, doch wäre es wahrscheinlich der Crissy (🇬🇧)-Overload geworden.

Mein DTIYS (🇬🇧) auf Instagram läuft nun schon ca. ein Monat lange. In dieser Zeit sind auch schon ein paar Beiträge eingegangen, auf die ich an dieser Stelle – mit einem kleinen Kommentar dazu – verlinken möchte. Vielen lieben Dank an alle bisherigen Teilnehmer!

🇬🇧 Actually, I planned to write this paragraph already last week but this would’ve meant to be a Crissy overload.

My DTIYS on Instagram now is going for ca. one month. In this time there already has been some entries which I’d like to link you to – with some short comments. Many thanks to all of the participants so far!

General overview.

A cute first entry by Et_Meli, I was enchanted by the single screw an Crissy’s expression.

I love how xeunbeex included Crissy‘s stuffed Water Bear!

And the design of the glasses, the pendants and the haircut drawn by xoxotoki.

Perfectly depicted by Pocket_Andrew: Crissy is ready to work!

🎶 „Und wieder geht ein Jahr“ 🎶

(„Another year gone“)

Mit unter anderem diesem Lied haben wir Anfan der Woche den Geburtstag eines meiner Lieblings-Streamer, dem Moep0r, gefeiert. Zu diesem Anlass hatte schnell noch mein Bearthbound-Bild von Anfang des Jahres aktualisiert. Ihr fragt euch, was die Zitronenrollen und die 40 % zu bedeuten haben? Dann kommt zu ihm in den Stream!

With this song among others we celebrated the birthday of one of my favourite streamers, Moep0r, in the beginning of last week. Thereofre I updated my Bearthbound painting from the beginning of this year a little bit. You are asking what the lemon rolls and the 40 % mean? Join his stream to find out!

Coming soon!
