Two Monsters by Rayaroja
Two Monsters
Been dying to submit this but DA wouldn't let me for some odd reason, then I found out it had to be RGB instead of CMYK... this took forever to compose and ink, and I had to redo it a few times as I tried and failed to experiment with whiteout.

In the dead of night, pouring rain, under one umbrella walk two monsters. Both are rejected and ostracized by society but find acceptance and understanding in one another.

Pinup- Galatea by Rayaroja
Pinup- Galatea
Inspired by something I saw on instagram, I hope miss Alysha Nett and Disturbia clothing will forgive me for appropriating their composition... this took a long time to get it right, and I am very happy with how it came out.

Iron Henry by Rayaroja
Iron Henry
You should see the other guy! I'm leaving this open to interpretation...

but I will tell you that "Iron Henry" is the alternate title to the Grimm fairy tale "The Frog Prince" and that my OC Henry's guilty pleasure is frog dissection...

Speed drawing- Graveyard Ballerina- Winter by Rayaroja
Speed drawing- Graveyard Ballerina- Winter
I've been wanting to do this piece for a long time... However, I asked a friend of mine who is a filmmaker to shoot a video of me drawing this piece and then make it into a time-lapse speed drawing video. It took a little under 6 hours and she is to be commended for being incredibly patient.
It will be a while before the video is finished, I'll post a link when it is.

Dance on Their Graves by Rayaroja
Dance on Their Graves
I wanted to have this submitted by Halloween but I wasn't able to get it to a big enough scanner in time...

I like to think this is what the POTAG sees when he spies on the graveyard ballerina.

  • Mood: Movingon
  • Listening to: Evanescence- My Immortal
    I feel it has been a while since I've posted stuff... the good stuff... the stuff that's too big to fit in my scanner. I gotta get down to kinko's pretty soon. But I should be able to post some crappy animations I've done so far.

    Just finished my humiliating finals for this Fall semester and I found out I have to stay here for yet ANOTHER year... gotta put a portfolio together before I can get outta this place. Hopefully I can save enough up to by a car by new years, I'm planning on going on something of a walkabout this summer, I wanna do something fun since I had to forfeit two summers for the sake of work and other goals.

Until then I gotta play the fifth, maybe even sixth wheel for yet another Christmas and new years since all the women in town are going home for the holidays. Not that anyone cares.

Anyway, Merry Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Winter Solstice DA!
