Weapons of Choice (Ashlyn and Aspen) by LordRobrainiac

...Is this mine? Did I actually draw this?! HOLY CRAP.

Granted, I still have problems with shading. But dang, I tried something new, and I lov

Great work, I must say. Did you mean to make Aspen look like he's coming out of a pot? If so, that's genius, given his plant-like nature.

Yep, with their redesign, Ashlyn and Aspen's hip areas are indeed clay pots. With their last designs, I felt that they were only partially plant inspired... So I added the pots and more noodly-ish torsos to put more emphasis on them being plant-like.

But yeah, Thanks!

Well... I mentioned this in a few other places, but this was a project originally planned for 24 hour comic book day. To make a long story short, things didn't turn out the way they planned, and even then I still ended up rushing it. With the coloring, the rushed story and my less than neat handwriting, this is not my best work, I'm gonna be honest.

HOWEVER! I'm very proud of myself for getting a comic done, and there's parts of the comic I actually really like, particularly expressions and some of the backgrounds and this is a premise that I want to explore more in the future. I figure these are good reasons to share with you guys. Despite my slight disappointment, I'm a bit excited to show off my work. I hope you guys enjoy it! 

I'm gonna put it in spoiler tags to try and save some space.

Crew of the Solar-Dragon by LordRobrainiac

I wasn't really feeling my character, Talon's design, tbh. One day while at work, I found myself wanting to create a shark character... only for my mind to wander, leading me to decide to redesign Talon from a feathered dragon to a walking shark with a harpoon launcher for a hand.

Talon's personality remains the same... Extreme and fun loving, but is hiding a somewhat cowardly side. He's a space pirate with a thirst for adventure and treasure, but can be a bit childish.

Oriana, the cat-moth, serves as Talon's mother figure and their ship's engineer and Dr. Caution, the tiny android, is his best friend and medical expert.

Took a shot a shading in illustrator again, and I kind of like it.

Dungeon-Crawlers by LordRobrainiac

Sketched these guys out this weekend, and I traced them digitally. You guys pretty much know the drill by this point. :P

If I ever go back into playing D&D at some point, it's likely I'll be using them as characters at some point. But in the meantime, they're gonna be exploring the "Post-Post apocalyptic" fantasy world I've created, crawling dungeons, slaying monsters, and even facing off against corrupt leaders as well.

I'm gonna put in some info and individual portraits in the spoilers if you wanna take a look at them.


David by LordRobrainiac

David, the human knight, is a former blacksmith turned self proclaimed knight. Despite his somewhat imposing knight suit, he's a big softie, and a bit cowardly. However, knowing his position as a leader, David often swallows his fear if need be. His favorite weapons is a sword, a shield and sometimes a large gun.

Katii by LordRobrainiac

Katii, the halfling thief, has a lot of skill in thievery... and a bit lazy as well. A teller of tall tales, Katii is knowledgeable in ancient artifacts and texts, and despite being a thief, she does have a generous side. She also has a fairy companion, who serves a scout for her. Her favorite weapons are a dagger and throwing knives.

Hjolm by LordRobrainiac

Hjolm, the Dwarven ranger. Hjolm is a boisterous dwarf whom are half machine and half flesh, made to dig tunnels endlessly. Hjolm among many other dwarves, seek adventure, and see the surface world. As loud and obnoxious as he can be, Hjolm is a dwarf who would fight and die for his comrades. Hjolm likes fighting with a crossbow, sometimes with explosives and digging tools.

Scarf by LordRobrainiac

Scarf, the lesser Golem monk. Scarf is a robot who likes to take life easily. Although a monk, Scarf lives life by his own rules, and would rather live a peaceful life. Seemingly built with ancient technology, Scarf can read and play ancient artifacts within his torso, and can gain knowledge from doing so. Although Scarf prefers to use words before fighting, sometimes things don't go the way they're planned, and thus uses a trusty quarterstaff to fight.

Merla by LordRobrainiac

Merla, the elven mage, Is a shy but gentle wizard, seeking to break out of her shell and take up adventures. This elf is very intelligent and adept at magic, but is often too scared of speaking up or trying her magic, always afraid of making herself look stupid among her peers. Despite this, she is very kind and always willing to help and tries the best she can to offer advice. Her weapons of choice are spellbooks. 

Florence Mask by LordRobrainiacFlorence no mask by LordRobrainiac

Florence, the Kobold Alchemist, (And self proclaimed 6th wheel), is a perky and bubbly person. Despite spending most of her life in solitary, Florence is very talkative and often says things as soon as they pop up in her mind, even if it sounds creepy to the others. She dreams of being a doctor, and aids in mixing potions for the others, and fights by tossing hazardous ones.

My character highlights of the year by LordRobrainiac

So here's some of my favorite character designs I made this year, one of which I haven't posted online yet.

What more can I say? It's been a pretty good year for me creatively, especially after that horrible block I had near the end of last year. I wanna thank those of you who have been following me for a decade. Even if you simply take the time to look at my art, it means a lot to me. 

Here's to a new decade!

Princess of Forevershade by LordRobrainiac

Drew these characters again after a couple of months, along with a new face to travel with them. Over these past months, I kind of imagine the setting of Forevershade to have a 1950s feel to it. It will be very happy on the surface, but has a bit of hidden fear and dark side to it.

Once again, we have Princess Fairclaw. She wears a cloak to (to rather poorly) hide her cursed prison uniform, and her cuffed hands. She relies mostly on her wings and feet to defend herself in tough situations. To her left is her loyal and bubbly servant, Hiss, who prides herself as a hunter and a witch as you may tell from both her skull and witch hat atop her head. And last but not least, to Fairclaw's right is the ever so cowardly but obedient Captain Coffin, a skeleton who once served for Fairclaw.

If you guys haven't read my october comic yet, I'd recommend checking it out, it's a few posts up on this page. :)

Princess Fairclaw by LordRobrainiac

The first time I've made a reference sheet for an OC of mine. Pretty fun, but a lot of work, though. I've really been in the mood to draw this character... Princess Fairclaw is probably one of the funnest designs I've made in quite a while.

Here's a profile for her for good measure as well. Enjoy!



AGE: 22
D.O.B 10/31
SPECIES: Human/Dragon
SKILLS: Fire Breath, fighting with feet and tail, flight
Fav. Food: Chocolate and Vanilla swirl cake
LIKES: Her Kingdom, Starry nights, Animals, reading books and horror comics, coming up with plots, manicures and pedicures, her loyal servants.
DISLIKES: The modern day, science, fake smilers,bullies, whiners, foiled plots, the current ruler of her kingdom, being cursed to wear her prison uniform and shackles.

Princess Fairclaw, said to have been a corrupt princess sealed away for her crimes. Decades and decades later, she is awaken by a joyful cultist by the name of Hiss, who offers her help in reclaiming her kingdom of Forevershade. The Princess is delighted by the thought of returning home, but is shocked to see things have changed quite a bit since she's been gone. What was once a fairytale kingdom, is now a fairytale 1950s-esque utopia. Princess Fairclaw now must figure out how to reclaim her throne, all the while trying to adjust to the new era she's woken up in.

Princess Fairclaw is a rather vain and spoiled person. Although she claims to hate whiners, she is prone to complaining when things don't go her way or when she doesn't understand something and If frustrated enough, she can be easily driven to tears. In addition, eye is prone to twitching when she gets stressed out. In an era that's much different from the one she lived in before being sealed, Fairclaw suffers from a bit of future shock, sometimes outright scared of all the change around her. Despite this, she's thankful for the few servants she has, relying on them to help her adjust to new forms of magic and the culture of the world. It's unknown what caused her to go down the path of villainy, but despite her profession, plots, and outright hypocrisy at times, she has a kind side to her, desiring to help those who are pushed around and does all she can to keep her servants and skeleton army happy.

Medics of the Overworld by LordRobrainiac

Some monster doctor character designs. To the left, is Dr. Nef, a part vampire, part frankenstein monster, part mummy doctor who also deals with deadly curses. Her Nurses include Bill the Spine, a friendly skeletal abomination, and her fairies of light and dark, Ahff the cynical and sarcastic dark fairy and Ahn the optimistic and relaxed fairy.

Things are well in their monster community, Chaos Canyon... but when a plague doctor rolls into town telling of stories of horrible curses and peddling phony magic potions, Nef, Bill, and the Fairies take it upon themselves to expose the fraud and put a stop to his potion production.

I admit, I came up with the premise and idea while being locked up in the house for all of this, based off of two things I'll be doing a lot of while I'm stuck: Playing Video games and Drawing some weird designs. Not gonna lie, I kinda creeped myself out drawing Bill the Spine.

Confronting the Conman by LordRobrainiac


“It’s sickening enough you’re scamming monsters with this so called cure… BUT THIS SO CALLED POTION IS JUST APPLE JUICE?!”

“Of course not! I put in a bit of dragon’s blood and a bit of sage in there, for that magic-y zest.”


In an unusual turn of events, here's a new picture I made already!

A scene I envisioned with Dr. Neferet, and her arch nemesis, (And man antagonist of my story) Curall von Plasmius. Looks like this strange creature wearing a plague doctor's mask is peddling a so called "cure" to some unwitting monsters, and the the monster doctor is not having any of this!

Here's a little something no one asked for: A profile for some characters I made! At the moment, I'm calling the idea "Checkpoint canyon..." It my take on the "RPG world but focusing on the monsters/enemies." idea. It's been done, sure, but the hell with it, I like the idea.

Checkpoint Medics: Dr. Neferti von Orlok by LordRobrainiac

This one I can't quite pinpoint where I got the idea from. I really just like drawing monsters, humanoid or not. For this particular character, I just had a bunch of ideas in mind and threw them all together. The result... I kinda like it. I imagine this character to be a medical doctor/healing mage with a personality that's a cross between a mother figure and a mad scientist. Create an RPG style world for her to be in, give her some friends, and... well that's yet another story Idea I've created.

I love and hate having so many ideas for stories.  

Checkpont Medics: Nurse Bill by LordRobrainiac

I've been wanting to come up with a skeleton character for a while, but couldn't come up with a design I liked... Eventually, I said, "the hell with it," and just made him a spine with half a skull and a hand. A pretty fun character to draw, actually.

He's the main character's weapon, kind of a cross between the hookshot from zelda and whip from castlevania.

Checkpoint Medics: Ahff and Ahnn by LordRobrainiac

When I first drew these characters, I envisioned them as being similar to Navi from Zelda. Just orbs with wings. But as I kept drawing them, I found myself coming up with designs I really liked and... well, here we are now!

I made these characters some time ago, but I ended up redesigning them after asking myself: What if a bunch of misfit video game characters teamed up to travel to other video games and steal items, collectables, weapons, and money? Enter the Exploits.

Taking some inspiration from Wreck-it Ralph, The Exploits are a band of video game characters who hop video game worlds and stealing valuables. Why? Well, let's just say they've all had some rough lives and they simply wanna become infamous and stick it to those who have wronged them.

3V: Real name Victor Von Viper, is the main antagonist of his game. Bored of his villainous antics in his original game, he seeks to spread chaos to other games. Probably the craziest of the group, his hobby consists of inventing gadgets and creating mutants from the code of other games. He serves as the group's hacker and gadget guy.

Slick: A character from a game that showed potential but didn't deliver on its promises. Feeling empty, this dancing robot seeks adventure and to get back at his rivals. Slick is a skilled dancer, and usually incorporates his dance skills when at work. Serves as the con man and second in command to the group.
Romby: Probably the most famous game character out of the rest of them. Sick of all the bullies he sees in the world, he forms the exploits to get back at those who wronged his friends and to make a cool collection. Romby is a bit lazy on his off time, eating and sleeping as much as he can, but if a job sounds exciting, he's quick to get started on it. Many are often surprised to find that Romby is leader and the mastermind of The Exploits.

Yuu: A rather quiet custom character from an RPG who was forgotten by her player due to being overleveled and boring to play. Her goal is to seek new challenges and fights in other games. Yuu enjoys drinking alcohol in taverns as well as fighting monsters.  However, she does have a soft side, often paying visits to a game starring cute critters, and sharing her treasures with them. Yuu is the muscle of the group.  

Muerta: A very infamous game character, in which she would force players to pay a lot of gold in order to progress, which often lead to blows to the head, courtesy of a sword. Fed up, Muerta attacked and killed the player character. Knowing she broke the rules of the game, she fled, joining The Exploits. The reason? She already was a criminal so she figured she might as well do more crime. Muerta is the Planner of the group.


I'll give free digital cookies if you can guess the inspiration of the artstyle. Bonus points if you can guess who's inspired by who!

My latest redesign of a project I made in highschool. What was once known as TV Crew is know known as Comicopolis: Heroes Capital. The premise isthree siblings, unable to get into any superhero schools, decide to start training themselves to become heroes, even if it means becoming unlicensed vigilantes to do so. But they'll run across some really dangerous villains if they are to achieve their dreams.

I actually liked how the inks came out this time.

Wait a second... It's June! Why in the world are you posting this months before halloween?! Well, yeah. It's too soon to be introducing this character... but whatever.

This character came to me after a sleepless night, on a day where I watched a lot of haunted house walkthrough attraction videos, and the character kind of popped into my head. The character was simple but fun, a spooky character ghost-like character who travels by leaping around. The scarves came in a little later, serving to help her climb up walls.

I don't really have a story for the character as of yet. Just a witch obsessed with candy and mischief. 

Maybe she'll turn up in my yearly halloween comic?

EDIT: Redesigned the character on the right, as I wanted someone more alien-ish looking.

Two new characters

The one on the left, Snow-Toes, is a character I originally made in Skyrim, only redesigned to exist in her own universe. She's basically a monster exterminator and a very easy going and a bit lazy.

The character on the right, Lady Fortress, is a cyborg villainous mastermind who seeks the path to redemption and is a hard worker. Her minion, a brain-like creature named "Cerebrat" also serves as a second brain, doubling her intelligence.

Not too sure what to do with these two yet, other than having an odd couple kind of story with them.

You guys ready for a new comic? Because I think I'm ready.






Welcome to a world of giant forests, where the tall trees and mushrooms are hollowed out for its inhabitants from many planets live.

Also, said inhabitants are not exactly at the top of the food chain... Monsters are known to wander the streets and trees of this city from time to time, seeking out prey.

It's a good thing we have exterminators to take care of them, don't we?


This the first page of the comic i've been mentioning in the status updates. I feel like I was on a roll with this comic, as I pushed myself to draw things I'm not usually used to. I'm pretty eater to share it! 

It's likely I'll be updating this particular post instead of making new posts in order to save space. I'm actually really happy with how this first page came out, both with inking and drawing.

Took a quick break from the comic. Will be updating again soon. In the meantime though...

Here's some character designs that have been a long time in the making. It's a story idea that's a lot less action based than my other ones, leaning more towards a slice of life tone. This is a story that takes place in a city of cartoons, following an optimistic puppet, his potted plant monster and many fellow cartoon characters living in the town of Mationville. I'm trying out many art styles for this premise, and I'm hoping people will recognize what I'm trying to go for.

Images and characters in the spoilers below to save space.


Sam by LordRobrainiac


A muppet-like puppet who always tries to look on the bright side of life. However, if things don't go swimmingly, he can become an anxious mess. He recently moved to town and got a job as a janitor at his local theme park. Samson loves what he does, but dreams of becoming a famous actor in the future.

Sparksqueak by LordRobrainiac


Sparksqueak, Sam's pet plant monster with electrical powers who can only speak in squeaks. Despite her lack of speech, she's has a very cynical and sarcastic personality, but is always there for her puppet owner if he's feeling particularly down. Sparksqueak's greatest foe is a housefly she always tries to make a meal out of, always getting outsmarted (and comically injured) in the end.

Tab by LordRobrainiac


Tab Legumaw is a musician who lives next door to Samson, and is his best friend. Tab, like Sam, very optimisic, but is also a lot more laid back, almost to the point of laziness. Despite this, he looks out for his puppet pal, and is the one to go to if you need know what's what in Mationville

Anna by LordRobrainiac


Anna is the grand-daughter of famous Toon, Issac Inkwelle, and is wide-eyed dreamer with a big appetite. Very energetic and upbeat, Anna is a mechanic with dreams of a job that has to do with fighting, Wrestling, MMA, anything sounds fun. Despite her loud nature, she is very kind and happy to help.

 Inkwelle by LordRobrainiac


Inkwelle was once a major star back in his day, but faded into obscurity once many other cartoon icons came into the picture. But recently, he's been trying to make his come back. He's become a little jaded over the years, but always tries to put on a happy face and keep on moving forward.

Klayson by LordRobrainiac

Klayson Aardson

Samson's cranky and bossy manager who assumes the worst in people, and has a bitter outlook on life. Although he takes his frustrations on his workers, his actions tend to turn on him. Despite his nasty disposition, he has shown acts of kindness every now and then, though many wouldn't believe it.

Richard-Drats by LordRobrainiac 


A toon who once played a villain who pretty much became a villain in real life. Richard Drats is the president of the theme park everyone works for in this comic and loves the sweet smell of business in the morning. Drats will stop at nothing to buy out everything he likes to build his collection of smaller businesses, and will do everything to save as much of his money he can.

Gotta say, Samson, Issac and Richard's styles are all very spot on. 

I do wonder what Issac's son/daughter's colors are, since his grand-daughter is in full colour. Maybe they're colored just like in the 90s? Who knows!

Seems to be interesting so far, so I'll follow it closely. Keep up the good work!

Also, we stan the beautiful sight that is Richard's eyebrows. Beautiful. Just beautiful.
