These first two drawings were done when I was in my second year of college, before I even started to write the story. Please, note I am no artist, but these were actually pretty good for me at the time.
The first was a doodle done within an hour and a half. Just an attempt at drawing her as an older version. The second was me trying to work on body dynamics. I did that all in ink.
Then there is this:
The first one is a "horse picture" of Slade from my story. The second is a "horse picture" of Slashera from my story.
Here is my portrait of Slade (much mroe recent and doen using a scanner. . .). I used a couple of reference pictures for it. I'm not sure if I want to say he has "bed head" with his hair or "shower hair".
Sorry. I haven't attempted to draw Slashera very much. . . But I will! eventually.
So yeah. Slade is definitely one of the main characters in my story thus far. Probably because he's my favorite villain from the Teen Titans cartoon show. He is also in the comics for the series. However, there, he is known as Deathstroke (they had to make him kid-friendly and so they changed it for the cartoon). I just didn't really read much of the comics. . . ;) So the Slade in my story is BASED off of Slade in the show. However, my story's Slade sticks more to his assassin side than to just the supervillain side of him. And he doesn't wear the mask (although there is a little mask in the picture up above ;)). That's why it's an alternate version. . . ;) Anywho, here's a figurine I recently got of the "cartoon-version" Slade. I really like it! ;)
I especially like the little chibi face.
One of the reasons I like Slade is that he's so planning and so meticulous with that planning, that he does show more of a criminal mastermind than some of the other villains on the show. Also, he is in a good amount of episodes on the show. I'm pretty sure he's the show's biggest recurring villain. This is a video that just has the producers of the show talking about him. Or a link to one, anyway. I didn't post it, although I do have the season DVD that it's on for the show.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqSyuBXxarQ
Ron Perlman did excellent work. However, in my story, this is who I "see" whenever I write about Slade. Or at least, someone who's very similar (minus one eye ;) ).
< that is Stephen Lang, who also played Commander Nathaniel Taylor in Terra Nova.
Do I think that I would get along with my story's Slade? No, probably not. At least not for long. As a very, very feministic personality, I do have issues with men who think that they're just better than everyone else and who walk around like that. This isn't to say I don't appreciate his skill and abilities. And his well muscled physique. However, I do try to make him as manipulative as I can in the big overall picture, so that does cause issues. However, I could not write a better villain (at least, that's not within my abilities), and I could not hope for a better villain to base the villain in my story off of. ;)
Now, back to Slashera. This weekend, I'm going to start to style a wig to wear when I cosplay her for halloween. Hopefully I'll be able to get hte wig part completed. I will post pictures up here! :)
I feel like I've just gone through an attic box and found these things. ;) There is more, but I'll post more of that later.
Hey, I was just looking through my Livejournal and realized: Even when I was trying to find some of my older Slashera stuff, it was hard. So I went through and put a lot of it here, in sort of a hodge podge.
