Sometimes when I'm bored I'll doodle things, or if I accidently draw something I like but isn't quite suitable for the current comic, I'll slap them into the scrap art file I keep handy. Here's a little demonstration. As you can see, I've been practicing drawing women, different poses, and trying to copy other art styles. This image will be updated periodically with any new scrap art I have, and cuttings from comics that just weren't suitable or are too big for panels but I didn't want to throw away entirely
Some fan art I made up for Fenris when he complained in irc that nobody made fan art for him. I spent a good half hour on her hips alone, and in the end that was the closest I got. Probably a symptom of me never drawing below the waist. And have you ever tried drawing hands cupping breasts from behind? It's damn hard, so I just put on the oven mitts after the third hour of drawing bloody hands.
After reading a thread on the rocketbox forum about changing styles it got me to wondering about the changes in style for btc over the year(s). So I went through and chronicled the various steps, starting from the beginning, showing major steps or minor ones which I thought were of interest. Where possible I've tried to include the last of one style before the change into the next. With others (such as Thanatos and Duke), the change is more gradual so I've taken a selection. I didn't realise just how much it had changed, because this image is over 2000 pixels high, luckily with png compression it's only ~200k, so don't sweat it. The colours are a little dark, but it's the least noticable problem in order to get filesize so low. That thumbnail is 1/10th of the actual image, so you get a good idea of how big it is. I won't be updating this, but it'll stay here for posterity purposes. New additions below
The face options I gave people before introducing Lei and Cleo, most of which I was unable to replicate fully so I ended up using component parts. Cleo is mostly heads 5 and 1, while Lei was part head 4 and an unknown factor. While body 3 was the most popular, I ended up not using it for either. Maybe somewhere further down the track it'll be seen. Lei was originally going to be anime styled, being from a japanese show and all, but I suck at anime. Like, really really suck.

See me draw terrible caricatures of the cheesites from the irc channel! Quickly, before they hunt me down and kill me! So far Dave (gassit) and Litazia have been the hardest to draw. Stop being so hard to draw, guys!
