A Suitable Outfit for a Lazy Day at the Seaside?

 Perhaps not, but I think Amy looks very nice in (men's style) formalwear. I thought of having her in a hat, but that would have covered up her lovely hair. Another time, perhaps.

This is an edit of this. I've been doing a lot of re-thinking, going over, looking back at old favourites, what have you, and wondering what the purpose of everything is, but, looking at a picture like this makes me feel good, and that's the only purpose there needs to be.

Amy Goes Verte-ing

A somewhat surreal picture to start off a new year (2020 was certainly surreal, to say the least of it). Amy fishes up Verte. One has to wonder 1) how Amy has the strength to haul Verte out of the sea, and 2) what the significance is of those yellow bulbs. At any rate, the fish will probably prove to be delicious.

Can We Get Another Pitcher Over Here?

 So asks Lily the lobster girl, a new friend (and perhaps more?) I created for Verte. I'm not sure why a lobster, but I don't recall seeing a 'monster girl' with those characteristics before. 

I think Lily's orange cheek spots have a similar significance to Verte's bulbs, and, by the way, Verte looks very nice in a dress. I think Lily and Verte are at some sort of an outdoor pub.

Amy and Verte

 Happiness is a delicious cup of morning coffee in a cozy little kitchen with a good friend.

Coloured version. Verte is sporting her monogrammed 100% cotton relaxing wear/sleepwear with fur-lined pink slippers. She, by the way, is an aquatic reptilian plant girl, as evidenced by her general colouring, long tongue, and hair spikes or fins (reptilian), and her sprout and bulbs (plants). I'm not sure what the significance of Verte's bulbs are, but they seem to be important. In the coloured version, Verte and Amy compare tongues. I envision Verte as being very loving and affectionate...she licks and hugs, and is generally very 'touchy-feely', with girls she loves, and she loves Amy.

Mind Your Shirt, Peregrine

Bevin, Peregrine and Bradden get a bit of colour, finally. I actually reused the very same colours from heaven knows how many years ago, and they did come out a little more 'somber' than I thought, but it works well enough. The lads are all set to enjoy a day at the sea.

 Robby surveys the garden and contemplates the meaning of it all. I quite like the colours in this, as well as Robby's pose. 

I have a version of this in which Robby is chatting with a girl, but, until I decide who the girl is, I'll wait to post it.

Summer Canes?

 It's been such a long time since I first drew Amy in this picture, so I figured I'd make a new post for the coloured, 'hairy' version. I know it's summer, but I suppose Amy can play with whatever she wants, whenever she wants.

Original, bald version. I always picture Amy as having been bald at one time, perhaps in her punk days.

Lovely Green Goodness

 I was working on a picture of (what I thought was) an unrelated character, when I came up with this:

This is Verte (no family name as of yet). She's a plant/frog/some-sort-of-aquatic girl. So-called 'monster girls' are a dime a dozen in anime and manga these days. I'm not particularly crazy about the genre, but some of the girls are cute. I daresay a girl like Verte has been seen somewhere before, but what the hell...I can make my own contribution to the genre. 

I think Verte is rather cute, sitting on what appears to be a lily pad. Her toenails are not painted, but are the same colour as the bulbs on her ears and her 'sprout', not to mention the bushes around her. I think Verte might be a friend of Amy As a matter of fact, she's assuming the very pose Amy is right here

A 'dressed up', smiling Verte, sitting (more safely?) on grass.

The Lads are Most Emphatically Not Taking Over, But...

...they are making their presence felt more than ever before, and that's just fine. 

From left to right, Bevin Oscar Anderson (colloquially known as Bevers), Peregrine George Aldershott (colloquially known as Griners), and Bradden Cecil McFadden-Madden (colloquially known as Bradders).  These fellows are school chums of Juniper, Apricot, Fennel, Peppermill, Chicory, and Nutmeg. Bevin is also a childhood friend of Juniper, and Bradden is a half-brother of yet another character to be introduced. They're quite a fun and happy threesome, I must say, and I can also say that Peregrine loves to be tickled under his chin.

Eyebrows and Rattail, i.e. Chicory and Nutmeg

Chicory (left, full name Chicory Carolyn Collingwood, sometimes called 'Chicers'), and Nutmeg (right, full name Nutmeg Nancy Northrop, sometimes called 'Meggers') smile lovingly at each other. I like Chicory's big eyebrows and Nutmeg's punky little rattail. NSFW sketch here

Looking for Love in the Bloodiest of Places

Presenting Julia Lucy Godwin II, quite possibly the oddest character I've created. Julia, or 'Jules', or 'Julers', as her friends sometimes call her, is a part time yuri manga artist, and a part time vampire, as well as being a full time oddball. I created her (sounds weird, but its true) years ago, and fleshed out a little of her story, and its nice to 'update' her a little bit. 

Julia has, so far as I know, the only 'double-bunch' hairstyle I've ever seen. I like the bunch or 'twin tail' look, and more than a few of my characters have it, but Julia is the only one with four bunches. I don't know how everything stays up there.

Hopefully, Those Drinks Don't Contain too Much Sugar or Caffeine

Amy and Jasmine bond over a can of Comely Stance (perhaps a relative of Comely Ascent, seen elsewhere in this blog?). Amy is obviously taken from the second picture here; I merely added Jasmine and did a little editing. A wonderful pair.
