Two Year Redraw: Madeline by Decadent-Depraved
Two Year Redraw: Madeline
Hard to believe it's been two years since I first drew Madeline. To commemorate the occasion, here's a redraw comparing her first ever design to her most recent one. I think she's improved a lot.

So, thanks to some friends at work, I've backslid into one of my most hated addictions, the duel monsters card game from the Yu-gi-oh! tv series. I've picked it up and dropped it about once every two or three years ever since middle school. I'll pick it up again, get into it, get frustrated, and drop it again. Luckily, I'm using a free online game this time, so I haven't wasted any money, but man is this game a killer. As usual, there's two or three "top tier" decks that EVERYONE uses, and as usual I refuse to use them out of protest. But, that's a recipe for disappointment and frustration, especially since I feel like this time there are no decks out right now that I really enjoy using. I get very depressed if I lose a lot of games in a row, which I usually do every day, and my wins always feel pretty hollow. This game is just all around bad for me.
But by far the worst thing is that yugioh kills my ability to write. The anime (which I've picked up again) is not well written or inspiring for anything outside of the card game, and I've lost almost all interest in Decadent and Depraved, and I hate that. I really hate it, because I love that story, and I wanted so badly to finish it, but now I have no desire to work on it. I think I need some sort of support group to get out of this stupid, depressing game. Can somebody help me? I'm in terrible pain right now and need a friend.
:iconatomickingboo: is hosting an OC feature event. The first ten people to comment on his latest journal get one of their OCs featured, as long as it's not fan art. As thanks, I'm going to feature his OC and offer the same option to others on my journal. The first ten people to comment will get one of their OCs featured on my journal, as well as a short description and what I think of them. No need to tell me which one. Just comment, and I'll pick my favorite. In exchange, do the same in your journal with one of my OCs and start an OC feature yourself. This way we can spread the word for underappreciated artists and their original characters.

Fangillia the Vampire Redux by AtomicKingBoo
For :iconatomickingboo:, I've decided to feature his vampire character Fangillia. Toons is known for drawing buxom, pin-up style girls with a 60's cartoon aesthetic, and Fangillia is a perfect example. I particularly like her little fanged smirk in this picture. Toons doesn't give us much info about her personality, but when I see her, I'm reminded of Vivi from the video game Braindead 13. Time will tell if she'll get more development. In the meantime, she's a neat design.  

Valse Macabre by K-Zlovetch

Naturally my good friend :iconk-zlovetch: gets a feature as well. And, I will of course be focusing on my favorite of her OCs, Iakov Drobievsky. I love everything about this guy. I love that he's a mad scientist, I love his hair, I love his mourning of his dead wife, and I love his relationships with the other Oetherium characters. He's a lot of fun, and he works really well in crossovers with my OC. I chose this picture for the haunting expressions and the great angle.

You're welcome. I completely agree that the sheer amount of pulp fiction being churned out by hacks and snapped up by audiences is appalling.
