straggler drawbles

Four more people commented on the drawble post I made last week:

In unrelated good news, Leo's weight loss seems to have stopped or at least slowed since Friday (he moves around while I want to weigh him which increases inaccuracies), and he's been a little livelier and ventured out of the cage more the last evenings, climbing and checking out all his favorite spots instead of just sitting in the cage like a picture of misery. So I hope that he maybe wants to hang in there a little longer despite having lost his brother and last rat company.

The last post indicated that the combination of a hat with the handcuffs would be enough to make Neal!RatCreature recognizable for people. So I hope that worked.

A Methos!RatCreature, and for once my icon's hair does not look worse or more unnatural than the canon version. I decided to show the skull facemask as the obvious prop, even though such a mask would not fit my avatar. Just pretend it would sit above the nose somehow, or something...

GIP, part 2

And now the Erik!RatCreature.

Magneto!RatCreature has been slightly trending ahead of Erik!RatCreature in my earlier poll so I finished that one first. But I'll probably finish the other too.

I decided my existing X-Men icons of Cyclops and Wolverine aren't really suitable for X-Men First Class, and that I needed an Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto icon. The only problem is that I'm not sure whether to icon Magneto!RatCreature with the helmet, which has the advantage of being recognizable, but otoh helmets don't work that well with the ears, and look always silly, or Erik!RatCreature, which is less easily recognized, but fits better with XMFC and whose look I prefer. So which do you like better for an icon?

rat woes again, and GIP

My poor rat Leo (the one who has been struggling for some months now with antibiotics resistant myco) has stopped eating this weekend. I could coax him to eat a little bit of scrambled eggs today, but he hasn't been eating anything else since yesterday. If this continues, I will have to put him down very soon. :(

So I've been distracting myself from my rat-related heartbreak by finishing that second Highlander icon, for which I'd done the pencils a while ago.

I was looking to distract myself with something that takes concentration, because I'm worried so much about Linus but can't do anything to help him. So I decided to draw something, but felt too frazzled for anything complicated, so the only thing I could think of was making myself a new icon. And because [personal profile] friendshipper has been posting about Highlander a lot, and to comment I only had my ninja icon, the first thing I could think of was making myself a Highlander icon. Hence I give you Duncan!RatCreature.

I finished my Aragorn icon.

I've been trying to draw this one for a while, but always abandoned it, because it turns out that noses of this size are quite inconvenient when drawing a mindmeld position. Well, I guess in the RatCreature!Trekverse there's nose-nose contact on top of the hand-head contact with mindmelds and they transmit not just thoughts but also the flu...

Here's my finished Uhura icon. Now I only need some idea how I could make a Kirk!RatCreature recognizable...

I was a bit unsure what kind of motif to choose for a "Fail!" icon. I decided to go for this one, because my avatar is a toon, and the classic toon failure is to run forward without realizing that it lost the firm ground, while the audience sees the calamity coming way earlier.

Then while drawing this, I realized that this is actually not unlike the typical "fail!" you run into (or commit yourself sometimes) in internet discussions. Also, the cliff motif is consistent with my "flail!" icon which shows a RatCreature teetering on the edge of a cliff, flailing its arms wildly, and which for some reason (probably the similar texts) got mistaken for a "fail!" icon several times. So I thought I'd make both a set.

I needed a Numb3rs icon. I hope they are at least sort of recognizable. Somehow Don and Charlie aren't the easiest to realize as ratcreatures.

I made a Merlin and an Arthur icon, because I'm full of squee from the season finale, and thrilled that Merlin will get a second season:

I felt the need for a nitpicking icon. Belatedly it occurred to me that I'm not sure English has the expression about "finding a hair in every soup" for people who nitpick to find something to complain about. Still, the imagery is fairly clear, I think, so I went ahead with my motif for visualizing the activity.

I also made another icon with a RatCreature that hasn't heard right, both for the literal meaning (seriously, how can people on tv series, trained actors, mumble this much?), as well as the figurative one:

popfantastic's recent post reminded me of my B5 love, so I drew a Minbari!RatCreature.

a seasonal GIP

Still in time for Halloween, here is Linus!RatCreature, waiting for the Great Pumpkin. Unfortunately I have never been in any pumpkin patch, much less in a sincere one, so I've never gotten anything from the Great Pumpkin, but I guess there's always hope with these things...
