Tumbledump VIII by Adoradora Tumbledump VIII by Adoradora
Whoops, I've managed to get way behind in my tumbledumping. Here's a giant pile of Pixie, Izzy and General George doodles from the tumblr, arranged vaguely chronologically.

Oh my god, Pixie was a firecracker back in the day.

I love Izzy and General George's growing-up-together relationship, too. Awesome.

Did General George eat Izzy's nose?!

General George has not, as yet, developed a taste for human flesh. Human hair, clothing and soft furnishings, however...

That "yet," while spoken casually, is ominous...

I just have to say, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way you draw the human body and clothes.  I very well might have to make you the next artist I study when I get the chance to do independent work again :3  Gorgeous work!

I just love the way you draw Pixie's gloriously saggy, droopy figure :) It's strangely beautiful, and also your lines are gorgeous! What do you use to draw, if you don't mind my asking?

Adoradora Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2014
Aw, thanks! I do enjoy rendering Pixie's prodigious sag. And I don't mind your asking at all -- most of these were drawn with a 000-sized round synthetic brush and Speedball India ink on regular copy paper (astonishingly, it doesn't bleed or warp the paper at all -- I've saved SO much money on paper since I discovered that!). A couple were drawn with a crowquill, but I've never quite been able to master working with dip pens.

No kidding! It doesn't bleed or warp? This may be the solution I've been looking for... Thank you! I shall have to experiment. Also, you're the second artist I've found who inks with brushes. I really must try that sometime, but it seems so daunting! Is it hard to get used to?
Reply
:iconadoradora:
Adoradora Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2014
Yeah, I don't know if it works with every brand of ink (the Higgins Black Magic I used to use was runnier and tended to bleed a little, but the Speedball I now use seems slightly thicker and holds a perfect line), nor every brand of copy paper (I'm just using generic bamboo pulp stuff from Walgreens), but it seems to be working pretty well for me at the moment. And brush inking definitely takes a little getting used to -- having to dip the brush and blot it every few lines is always a bit of a pain. I guess you'd be able to avoid this with a brush pen, but so far I've never found a brush pen I've liked.

Thank you very much for the specifics! I haven't tried Speedball's India ink yet, I've just been using Higgins. I'm looking forward to trying it out! Hopefully I won't end up dragging my wrist through still-wet ink too many times. As for brush pens, they're not my favorite inking tool mainly because the "brush" tends to lose its fine point very quickly.

oh man another batch of amazing doodles to awe and adore :love:! My day is all the better when i see your works in my message box. That pic of Pixie in a two piece is both terrifying and fabulous in a horrible way hahaha you draw such great characters and bodies. I LOVE that slug btw he is so mushy and friendly. I also laughed at the nose in flames :D great collection!

as a person who stares at slugs a lot I appreciate your slug drawing skill and feel that you must have dutifully used reference to make George so perfect.
also as many others have said your gestures are just unsurpassed!

I spent an inordinately large chunk of my childhood staring at slugs. I'm glad my many hours of patient slug-observation are finally paying off ;)

Wherein we see that Izzy did have a snoot as a youngster.  Nice seeing Pixie and General George when they were younger and a bit more (* ahem *) trim.  George's censoring of young Izzy's French Postcard makes me wonder if the lad ever had to tell Teacher, "The mollusk ate my homework..."

I don't know! I don't know why there's a slug, or why it's so big. I guess I just figured little slugs are pretty cute (not a universally-held belief, I'll grant you), so a big slug would be even cuter.

Oh man, these are perfect! I think the one with George getting dressed up gives me the most joy. It's a bit weird thinking that a dressed up giant slug can brighten my day but there you go. :D

I won't lie, she pretty much embodies everything I aspire to (except perhaps for the droopiness).

and i had no idea before now that a giant slug was a THING in their universe but knowing just brings me so much joy.

Many thanks, glad you like 'em! And yes, giant mollusks are definitely a thing in their universe. They don't make particularly affectionate or entertaining pets, but they do have the virtue of being extremely low-maintenance.
