preview of Steampunk Maria Hill/Steve RogersGenre/Fandom: Avengers (Marvel Cinematic Universe)
Characters/Pairings: Maria Hill/Steve Rogers
Media: indian ink on paper
Notes/comments: I made this for the Yuletart 2013 gift exchange for Tielan, originally posted here. For Captain America’s AU outfit I referenced bits from Ryan Meinerding’s First Avenger concept art and an American WWI uniform, rather than trying to come up with a Steampunk superhero costume for Steve or dressing him into something more Victorian. I couldn’t quite see him as a gentleman adventurer or such.

Characters/Pairings: Bruce Banner (as Hulk), Linus van Pelt
Media: colored pencil
Notes/comments: I read this post with a chat between Petra and Liviapenn about Hulk with a lead binkie, which in my mind caused me to imagine a sort of Peanuts fusion with Hulk in a Linus pose, and then this weird thing happened.

preview of  Pinky and Brain illustrationGenre/Fandom: Pinky and the Brain
Characters/Pairings: Brain/Pinky
Media: fine liner pen with indian ink, digitally colored in GIMP
Notes/comments: This an illustration for the Yuletide 2011 Pinky & Brain story Best Laid Plans by lies_d. I have to say that it is not at all easy logistically to draw these two kissing. First there’s the height difference and then the muzzles get in the way too. Also, this is supposed to be the photo of them that ends up on Facebook in the story and originally wanted to format this to appear as if posted there, like a screenshot with the website logo and such, but I do not have an account and don’t really know how the pages where photos are displayed look for the users. I tried finding screenshots of Facebook walls but they don’t seem to show photos, just comments? So now you just have to imagine it there.

preview of  Genre/Fandom: Highlander/X-Men
Characters/Pairings: Methos, mutant baby
Media: acrylics on paper, original ca. 35x45cm; for more detail see this process post
Notes/comments: This is an illustration for Basingstoke’s awesome Highlander/X-Men crossover WIP Unalienable. Among many other things happening, Methos takes care of a mutant baby, carrying her around in a sling: “Methos makes a sandwich with the baby in a sling on his hip. […] Baby’s skin has flushed up bluer now that she’s feeling better. Her eyes are a bright, piercing pink. Her eyelashes and eyebrows are thick and orange but she doesn’t seem to have any hair on her head or body, not even the normal fine down of a girl’s skin. She looks garish and strange.”

preview of an Erik and Oscar doodleGenre/Fandom: X-Men/Sesame Street
Characters/Pairings: Erik Lehnsherr, Oscar the Grouch, Fluffy, Slimey
Media: pencil
Notes/comments: Another scene from the XMFC/Sesame Street crossover in my head: Erik would visit Oscar’s trash can, and maybe he and Oscar would bond over their misanthropic outlook. But the trash can would also feel really odd to Erik’s metal sensing abilities, because it is larger inside than out, and Erik just can’t figure how this structure works, and maybe it puts him a bit on edge, when the metal in his environment feels wrong. He probably wonders whether escaping through whatever kind of dimensional anomaly leading into “Grouchland” this is, is the monsters’ backup plan should humans decide to round them all up (because of course the first thing Erik noticed, once he resigned himself to Charles dragging him into sets of singing monsters, is the complete lack of security and defensible positions).

preview of a Magneto and Super Grover doodleGenre/Fandom: X-Men/Sesame Street
Characters/Pairings: Erik Lehnsherr (as Magneto), Grover (as Super Grover)
Media: pencil
Notes/comments: A while ago one of Cereta’s Grading Hell Theater posts prompted me to think about the X-Men characters visiting Sesame Street. Ever since I’ve been thinking about the many awesome opportunities this crossover would bring. I mean, Sesame Street started 1969, a few years after the events of XMFC, so in the intervening years I imagine some ending fixit happened for Charles & Erik (and by extension the X-Men and the Brotherhood) or at least a temporary truce. Meanwhile with Charles trying to advance his cause of peaceful coexistence with humans, he’d manage to get Sesame Street to promote mutant acceptance alongside other diversity, and would be enthused about the opportunity to guest star with his students. (Of course in this universe the muppets are real, and working in the entertainment industry or something like that.)

Erik has no idea how exactly he got roped into the project, but it probably started with Charles arguing the importance that mutants who can’t pass also appear, so that got the Brotherhood involved (so Hank wouldn’t be the token non-passing mutant), and it all went downhill from there. And in the end because he can’t refuse Charles anything, Erik somehow finds himself appearing in sketches with Super Grover featuring capes, helmets, and the letter “M” which after all is for so many awesome words as metal, monster and Magneto… (I’m not sure when Super Grover first appeared, but he was introduced later there just has to be some canon bending, because the opportunity of these two is just too good to pass up.)

preview of  a gnome and horklumps plateFandom: Harry Potter
Characters/Pairings: a gnome & horklumps
Media: pencil, fine liner pen with waterproof indian ink, GIMP
Notes/comments: This is the fifth in my magical creatures series, a gnome & horklumps encyclopedia plate this time. The canon description in Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them (p. 21) is “The Horklump […] resembles a fleshy, pinkish mushroom covered in sparse, wiry black bristles. […] It spreads sinewy tentacles rather than roots into the ground to search for its preferred food of earthworms. The Horklump is a favourite delicacy of Gnomes but otherwise has no discernible use.”

Notes/comments: A while ago I did a drawing for the adorable X-Men/Calvin & Hobbes fusion, The best things in life are blue by oddegg which has Raven as Calvin and Hank as Hobbes. And because this is such a happy-making story, I decided to distract myself with it, and drew two more pictures for one of the scenes.
