Fic Rec - SEARED (DirkJake JohnKat etc)
Ok I found out who you are elisabomb.tumblr.com XDD Author of one of the fics I am stalking sooo I thought I’d recommend this:
It is a non-Sburb AU and has space exploration and DirkJake AND JohnKat (asides from other pairings but you know I love these pairings so I’ll point them out especially because it’s absolutely rare to find good fics with those two pairings at the same time).
It’s awesome it updates rather often so go read~
I present you all my masterpiece so far. Spent 6 days on it and never put so much details in a single picture. This was done for chibiedo for his new Dirk/Jake AU comic he is working on. Now I can go die in a hole or something hahahahaha….*dies*
OMG I LOVE THIS SO MUCH ;A; So happy you got it done now! Past-Dirk is such an adorable cutie I want to hug him. And the details, and the shading ;A; this picture is sooo amazing ;A;
By the way I’ll just say this beforehand but it’ll take a while until I get to past-dirk, act 1 is only about the present. XD So you’ll have to be patient.
alright first: thanks for that tutorial about Expanding Shimeji's Actions, i was looking everywhere for something that would explaim all those number and codes. Second: by the cover of A Second Chance, looks like is going to be sad as fuck. and finally: i want to know if you ever heard about the johnkat fic Drama Queen by Bananaramses? c: since you're a huge johnkat fan and that fanfic is just perfect, and albino!karkat is the cutest fucking thing ever. I recommend it brother, high quality fic.
Aw thank you! Funny that you mention Shimeji because I’ve just been looking into them more again. I might eventually do the ‘adding new Shimeji actions’ tutorial I had planned to do back then as well. But that is a bit more complicated than expanding but not too much.
About A Second Chance… you are absolutely correct.XD It’ll probably almost make myself cry of feels. I’ll definitely warn people to read at their own risk when I actually start. But I assure you it’ll have a happy end because I love happy ends. And fluff. Oh and I also love action and being evil to my fave characters. hehe.
Oh no I haven’t heard of the fic I’ll have to look into it! Albino-Karkat is my headcanon for human Karkat~
Thank you again for your nice note :D I was happy to find something like this in my inbox~
Sketches for my DirkJake comic “A Second Chance”
to the left you see the layout for the cover page of act 1 :D And as you see.. or well I hope you see the midnight crew plays a role in this.XD
On the right I did character designs for the midnight crew~ I hope they look alright I’m really having troubles drawing older characters XD But I’m content. This is the first time I drew them so details will probably change a bit.
Hope you like this little preview~
Dirk x Jake - A Second Chance - main cover
So this is the cover for my next comic project and I’m really happy how it turned out~ Not going to say that much yet but I’ll just say.. It’s a time travel story. And no-Sburb AU. And it will consist of 3 acts :D
Still have a lot of planning to do so the only thing you might see soonish but probably not THAT soon is the cover for act 1.
are you ever gonna start that camping idea?? I saw it in your pictures and I thought that would a pretty cute idea ^ - ^
Omg the camping idea. Actually I have no idea. Personally I love it very very much and I’m probably going to ink the picture with john, karkat, dirk, jake and dave (but it’s a lot of work so I haven’t so far) but the story itself is not mine it’s Ama’s and she would have written it as a fanfic and I would have drawn some pictures. I don’t know if she still wants to work on it so I can’t answer your question I’m sorry.
Eeep! I'm so excited for your next comic to come out! Also, I wanted to congratulate you on finishing "On a Friendly Basis"! I was wondering what you were planning to do in the meantime until the comic comes out? *whispers will you do any johnkat *
Aw thank you so much! I’m really excited for it too you have no idea. I have a lot of research and plotting to do for that one so I’m not sure how much non related stuff I’ll do in the meantime.
I also don’t really have any random johnkarkat (or dirkjake) pics in my head that I would want to draw right now. But if people give me cute drawing ideas which I like I might draw something so feel free to suggest something. No promises though.XD
Jake x Dirk - On a Friendly Basis - Cover
This is the cover page I finally finished XD A bit late but since I don’t think I can move around tumblr posts I can’t put it in front of all the other pages now… And I really didn’t want it to be posted somewhere between the pages so I uploaded it last.
I really love how it turned out~ Hope you like it, too!
You can read this comic either on my tumblr:
or on my archive:
(I recommend archive for reading actually.XD)
Jake x Dirk - On a Friendly Basis - Page 29
This is the last page of the comic~
I’m so proud that I actually got this done! It’s funny how it went from ‘I want this to be a quick sketch thing as something relaxing to draw’ to.. ‘I want perfect lineart (but still don’t care about the backgrounds in this hahah)’
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I do! Now I can finally work on other things again. Planning another DirkJake comic right now but not sure when I can actually start drawing the pages since that one needs a lot of planning.
This comic can also be found on archive:
