Well that is it, my poor computers coughed its last (Stealing mums laptop to post this) I turned it on yesterday for it to make some popping noises, then just not work at all. Been told my whole motherboard and processor have gone ;_; Poor Bodie (yes I named my computer :P), you’ve been with my 4 years, and lived thought my flogging you to death with Photoshop, I’ll miss you. Thank goodness I ordered a new one last week, just waiting on it to be built now ♥

I’m a bit depressed about everything going wrong though, so I’m going to post some art instead, and not bore you with my boring aggravating life, and to distract myself from moaning about my boring aggravating life XD

Who are they looking at? I have no ideas :D Obviously Erik let Charles read the map and they're utterly lost. (I swear I had a story in my head about this scenario somewhere, involving Charles joking about going back to ask the scary guy in the next town over who told them to fuck themselves for directions) 

Not like Erik minds, gives him a chance to distract Charles from sulking.(or obviously he's thinking back on the scary guy who said to fuck themselves, he thinks it's a smashing idea lol) 

I’m always so grouchy toward my own style lately. I’m that old lady in the corner shaking her cane at her own work lol Some days I want to be elegant and draw beautifully delicately inked lines, next I want to be all bouncy and cartoony, another day I want to concentrate on realism. One of these fine days I’ll make my bloody mind up what style I want to draw and stick to it, I know mine is comic book and going outside of that stiffens my work. STAY WITH IT WOMAN!!!! I’m torn between liking these (the colours anyhow) and thinking I was concentrating too much on getting them to look like their actors, there’s just something I can’t pinpoint that’s bothering me about them. I need to relax, go back to my usual comic style and not care so much about getting things right. I did try with the hugging one but still CHARLES IS AN EVIL BUGGER TO DRAW!!! *end art moan*

I started this sketch and just gave up. I like to call it Crapneato, because apparently I think i'm funny lol

Sorry, to those I owe emails and comments to, and more. I am trying to convince my mum to lend me her laptop more often until my computer arrives. Possibly be here by next week, but that's too long a wait. So, hopefully should be back to comment, reply and stick to the commitments I have, especially to Frida and Mel X_X  Best shoot off, i'll be online again as soon as I can.

NOOO I could never kill you penny, okay only with art *hugs*

Ah, I sort of cheated with the map, it’s a texture I played around with ;) *runs to pull you out of the corner*

ALL HAIL CRAPNEATO! I can't draw for beans so it probably doesn't mean much, but your Charles-face is spot-on. Feel free to continue abusing brown and green if this is the result. ♥

I’m a bit scared to think what kind of powers Crapneato would actually have lol Thank you, it’s really nice to have an outside view of whether I’ve captured him right. If it was up to me I could be sat all night picking it apart ‘going it’s not quite him, is it?, yeah, no, yeah’ I’m very annoying to myself XD

I am constantly blown away by your ability to capture people's faces. It's ridiculous how good you are. I'm just enchanted with Charles' nose and Erik's lips - you get them so right and just dude. It's awesome. And I love the color schemes for both of these, muted and just so so pretty.

Thank you hun *blushes* I always find them so hard to do, yet at the same time faces are my favourite things to draw. Charles’ nose is wonderful, and high on my list of things I find evil to draw, it’s just so distinct and belongs to no one else. Mind you I’m a bit worried because I love drawing noses, I’ll give poor Charles this huge one, he’s too pretty for that XD

Lucy. Oh. My. God. Charles in the first pic. I can't look away from his eyes. *_* I literally saw this, stared at Charles, was a bit incoherent, went away to vacuum, and am now back, staring and trying to form a comment while repeatedly scrolling back up to stare some more. ;__; I'm not sure if it's because he appears in the exact middle of my screen, or if it was intentional, but the pic really seems to centre around his face, lolol. orz His face just glowwws and everything is perfect <3 Ugh, and I should stop drooling over him and let you know that I love everything else too. The background is, as always, beautiful, and Erik looks so charming <3 Aaah, I'd like to think that a random tourist noticed how hot they looked together and decided to take a photo, and Charles is smiling because he's always smiling and Erik WAS smiling at something Charles said, but then noticed the camera and got all scowly, but the camera managed to catch the smile just before it changed into a frown and I've talked way too long and I will just say that I love the other two pics too and you are my herooo. <3

THEIR FACES, their precious faces, I love them so much ;__; ♥ You draw them so beautifully, and I've always been envious about how you know how to use green in your color palette because that color (and purple) have always been a mystery to me. I love how you draw their lips, I love the backgrounds and the subtle movement you hint at with little details in otherwise still pictures. The second picture is so tender ;_;♥

shut up lucy, that is not crapneato, ok, he looks fabulous

Thank you BUNNIEEEE ♥ *hugs* Man that really means a lot coming from you. I always pick myself apart for thinking I’m trying too hard to get them right facially and losing my style to being TOO realistic. So thank you ♥ Ha-ha, green is a right sod to get right, I find if you use a lot of browns, it tends to make it a bit softer and not so harsh ;) (purples pure evil) Erik is trying to make up for his bitchfest at Charles inability to read maps.

I’ll change it to BAMF-neto for you Bun. I think I may finish it, it has everything to do with the fact I want that costume in the movie to look cool and not thrown together in the lat minute assfdgadag!!!

Oh god hun, I haven’t had much of chance to say because of my computer woes. But, I just adore everything you’ve drawn for these guys. They make me smile so much, you’re style is just so much love ♥♥

Ahhhhhh oh wow, I love this. It's funny, I'm writing a fic that has a lot of going from motel to motel, place to place, and this really resonates on that level as well as just the plain old OMGAwesome level.

I love the Magneto sketch. It captures so much of his, well, magnetism and power. I don't know how... it's your magic, I swear. <3

Posted by [identity profile] loobeeinthesky.livejournal.com
Oh wow! I really love the idea of them staying in motels a lot and getting to know one another over the most simplest of things as sharing a meal, a room, driving (it inspired the first picture) I really can’t wait to see that fic come to life ♥

I may just finish that sketch for fun, something great about having him use his powers (especially as he is throwing cars around) Always wanted to draw comics, so it’s good practice. Thank you ♥

MAN. You can REALLY DRAW these guys. They are so manly and seventies and in love!!! I love that they're wearing the same clothes in both pictures - it is like a tiny gay storybook. Maybe if you are trying to get back to your comics-y roots you should make a huge elaborate comic about Charles and Erik!

Just throwing things out there. :D

And I second what everyone says about how astonishingly McAvoyian your Charles is - yikes! It's like real life! ♥

Wow, thank you so much XD I find them such a struggle to draw so that means a whole lot to me ♥ I broke hearts with my last drawings so these are full of love and sweetness. God, I’d LOVE to draw a comic with them in. Maybe once I find time I can maybe do a mini one to someone’s story or something like that ;)

Thrown and caught *laughs*

Eeeee thanks you again ♥ (never enough thank you's lol) James has a face that’s all his own, I think he’s utterly gorgeous and want to draw him so much XD

You should experiment with other styles if you want to, but just so you know: your default style here is gorgeous. I want to write some ridiculously long and gushy nonsense about colour palettes, but instead I will just say that....facial expressions...I love them. Especially both of them in the first and Erik's in the second.

....Also love that the little blossoms are basically heart shaped.

You know I think it is CT. I’m British so absolutely awful at knowing my US states (forgive me) But I did nab a CT map to use XD Thank you ♥ I’m a pain at always wanting to try out other peoples styles, I have so much love for others art ♥ My default style never lets me though so it’ll be around for quite a while *laughs* It means a whole lot that you like the facial expressions, I tend to be very subtle with them, so sometimes they can seem samey, so thank you.

I couldn’t resist XD

Crapneato, because he is NEATO and awesome! Or...something! XD

These are so great, Lucy, I love the little things, like the shine on the car's windshield, the logo on Erik's shirt, etc. Gosh, I love their faces in the second picture. Erik's soft expression, his hand slipping inside Charles' jacket. *melts*

He'll have to be Neato hun, or he'll just be crap LOL And I can't do that to such handsome if troubled man ♥

Thank you Laria *hugs* The shine was meant to represent the sun, but like Jen says it does make it look more like a photo was taken and a moment stolen. They deserved a loving moment after my last meeting picture.

Oh, Lucy, I'm so sorry to hear about your computer problems ;____; but on the other hand - holy, woman, these are stunning. Charles is so spot-on. I can see James McAvoy in him, it is so - and Erik, oh my God - I'm kinda bad at giving good feedback on art, but I absolutely adore the colours, the almost-sepia feel, how relaxed their poses are around each other. And the leaves, shaped like little hearts! Sneaky sneaky. ♥ There is just something so vulnerable and beautiful about that second pic, too, and I love it.

(But then I love everything you do because WOMAN HOW ARE YOU SO TALENTED I am in awe, and so honoured to work with you for this XMBB :flails:)

James is so lovely I sometimes think I make him look ugly ;_; But you and everyone has put my mind at rest *hugs* heehee, cherry blossoms always look like little hearts to me ♥

(Oh hush you, you're uber talented yourself and I adore your writing. I'm so happy to be working with you on the BB, I can't wait to start drawing for you. All those yummy ideas ♥)

I always love the way you capture the little details that make the people in your illustrations tick, you know: the map, the patterns in their clothes, the details of their hairstyles. I can't stop looking at them in the first one; it's like you had them be caught by something and as a consequence we are caught by them too.

Thank you so much hun ♥ I always like to draw moments in the characters lives, like a single frame on a film. i worry it gets a bit boring but I like doing it XD jen mentioned that maybe the first could be from a quickly snapped photo, I think I'm certainly going for that as they're caught out somehow XD

I thought your computer finally fell into pieces since our date never happened. I'm glad you're ~okay, though. *hugs hard* I've been having a bit of trouble with my xmbb but thank god Mel talked to me so I'm over it now. I shall tell you later. ALTHOUGH YOUR JAMES NEW COMPUTER NEEDS TO ARRIVE YESTERDAY. You'll be calling him James, right? Right. Good.

I love both of these. I meant to tell you this during our chat, hence never replying your ever-awesome emails. /o\ But yeah, I love the first one and the second and idk, your sis was wrong, jsyk. I love your style and I think this realism-strike you're on looks also fab, you're being WAY too hard on yourself. I adore the warm colors you use, so soft and comfortable and ajfajf. (I do have an idea for you, though -- in case you wish to try something ~new, perhaps.)


I shall just... see if I can squeeze in an email for you tonight, since I have lots of xmbb stuff and other stuff and ugh, so much stuff. I miss you, darling. ♥

Frida I'm so sorry about not being there. I knew my computer was on the blink for ages, thought it would hold out till my new one arrived D: (still not here but I have a laptop for a few hours) I hope all worked out and I'm sorry to see you struggled with something. he shall be called James, as i'm your fassy looks like I get to share two James ♥♥♥ Please send me an email and tell me all hun ♥ I need to send you one as there's something you said in your emails I'm dying to draw, and need to ask if it will be in the story. I've been watching Band of Brothers while away and it inspired me. Dying to start drawing for you ♥

I listen to my sister too much sometimes, but thank you hun. I think i'm being hard because i'm looking at other artists too much again and wanting to draw like them. I'll stop being hard on myself and just keep drawing. (Oh do share!!! i'm always interested in ideas an such ♥)


Look forward to your emails XD I'm trying to get on this laptop more. Though when I get my new computer i'll be sure to come right to you and chat your ear off, it should be here by next week, I miss you so much too ♥
