Chiroines 08: Chikasa by JohnStaton
Chiroines 08: Chikasa
My last chibified offering for Anime USA, and this one's an actual heroine for a change, she of the awesome scarf: Mikasa Ackerman from Attack on Titan.
Chiroines 07: ChibiQuinn by JohnStaton
Chiroines 07: ChibiQuinn
When I scanned this one, I couldn't help but slather on some rudimentary color.

BTW, to me this is the only Harley costume I recognize. While normally I support any and all acts of pandering and fan service, I always felt the costume designs for Dr. Quinzel, featured in the Arkham series of games were just unnecessary and desperate.

Seriously, aren't red and black latex tights sexy enough? :confused:
Chiroines 06: ChiBaroness by JohnStaton
Chiroines 06: ChiBaroness
My day's visit to the artist alley at this year's Anime USA afforded me an opportunity to add to my long promised, but oft-neglected series of chibi-fied heroine drawings.

Today's picture features Baroness Anastasia De Cobray from GI Joe, a character which I've been meaning to draw for the longest time.

I know it isn't perfect, but I'm proud how it came out, particularly the HISS tank, which I drew from memory. Of course that probably really only means I've been watching waaaay to much GI Joe, but then you probably already knew that. ^^;

Favourite cartoon character: Destro (isn't it Obvious?)
After experiences a seeming eternal dearth of watchable anime, I happened upon three GREAT shows.

Upotte Anime girls with assault rifles.

Girls und Panzer: Anime girls with tanks.

Strike Witches: Anime girls with WWII fighter planes for legs.

Yes, that's right, they all feature cute girls and assiduously detailed military equipment. :excited: I hope no one is surprised I like this sort of stuff. If you like this sort of stuff, you should check them out. :thumbsup:;)

Now all we need is a new anime with 4th and 5th generation fighter jets. :iconplanningplz:

John! Do you do commissions?

Some really great stuff in here. You've certainly piqued my interests, especially what you did with Evil Diva. Gonna keep on eye on you and give you a Watch. ;)

Hello. It's come to my understanding that you once did some artwork for Krakow Studios, depicting the young marilith Guinness as she might look as a sexy adult.:…

I know that's a very random thing to bring up out of the blue so many years down the road, but I just thought it might interest you to know that Krakow has recently given an older Guinness a cameo appearance in his newest comic, "Spinnerette". She's now a secretary to a high-ranking cerberus demon, and I figured you might be interested to see how she canonically turned out.……

You're thinking of Eric Stanton, who passed away, back in 1999. ^^;

Felt it was time for a change, eh? :)

Yea. a.) I figured it's simpler to have a self-named gallery when referring people to look me up and b.) I realized the film I was referencing for my former screen name is now 21 years old, so very few people would even get the joke.

So yea, it was high time for a change. ^^;

I have in-jokes of an even older vintage....Sweating a little...  I am no longer hip, I guess. =P (Razz)

Film?  I always assumed it was related to Daniel Dukke.
