FIMG sketches for Twilight (and a little Rarity, top and bottom), drawn during Arrow. Basically actual size. Since my regular computer is down, I had to scan this with my family’s All-In-One HP without dedicated scanning software, instead of my Canon with it’s own WIA software and I’m sorry I am boring you with all this computer stuff
Would you believe I’ve been working on a Punk Psylocke redesign for over two years now?
As for Harl, that was inspired by the most recent episode of the Joker Blogs, where we briefly see Dr. Quinn owns a Venetian Harlequin mask. That’s a croquet mallet she found somewhere, instead of her usual comically oversized mallet, and instead of a joke popgun, she weilds a .38 Detective Special.
Pun not intended.
"I like your smile. I think I’ll take it."
Outfit inspired by Florence Welch in the “Sweet Nothings” music video (NSFW), and Bertie Wooster.
Hair inspired by 20s hair, such as the above Helen Hayes publicity photo (which actually seems to be from 1934) and River Song’s hair in “The Time Of Angels”.
Cane based on Sebastian the Inquisitor from Babylon Five. It’s actually a lot fancier than I can show in this pic. And, I now realize, entirely too short. Unless Ms. Sweetness (a pseudonym given to her by the press) carries it entirely for intimidating purposes, which, given her previous exploits, is not exactly an unlikely possibility.
Lines of action: Note how Jane’s primary line (purple) is basically a right angle, with only one secondary line (blue), which leads the eye straight into the razor. Muttonchops has a much “weaker” main line (red), which comes from his slumping, cringing pose. I also gave him significantly more secondary lines (orange). This serves to contrast him with the much “neater” Jane.
His right arm leads straight into Jane’s secondary line, and his feet (including the spiderweb) point the eye towards Jane’s feet and legs, which pull you up her body to her face, back to Muttonchops’ face, down his body and too his feet etc.
Pop quiz: how much of all that do you think I did on purpose?
Colors: Since the most vibrant color in MC’s outfit is his purple smoking jacket/bathrobe (the blue of his pants and the jacket’s lining are secondary), I thought of his main color as purple. Jane’s is, obviously, red. Which is why the counterlighting is yellowish-green, because complementary colors.
Also, note the presence of more saturated colors on Jane overall, compared to Muttonchops. Even his skin is pale. I’m not sure why I chose purple for the shading. I was doing Jane’s eyeliner in black, and decided to change it to purple because whynot. Then I started doing her shading in that purple (sometimes on Multiply, usually at 50% or 70% opacity).
The green background sets off Jane’s red nicely, I think.
Sorry for the dry commentary, I’m feeling drained after getting ambushed by a cold yesterday.
It’s a Drag-gun, geddit? Same set as those earlier pics.
I wanted to draw a Kizer style image with Superman and Mario. “Super, Red, and Blue”. Never finished it.
Magically charged snowballs, apparently.

The conceit here is that this is an MIB/SCP-style agent who’s sent in to investigate and deal with dangerous biomagic threats. This is the basic protection level, well before he starts breaking out the moon suit. Strictly speaking, if he’s worried about contamination, he probably should’ve taken off that tie.
