i lost an ask somehow from an anon who wanted 2 know some things about these two. i think you could consider them pretty close?? she calls eridan her best friend but she’s a lot nicer to gamzee, though i guess that could be because eridan can take care of himself while gamzee does shit like lick highly neurotoxic frogs because he thought they looked tasty. she is also one of the few who doesn’t think of him as a big dumb joke, so there’s that.
anyway they’ll be spending a lot of time together because feferi is a natural at a space player’s frog capturing/breeding role and gamzee, the actual space player, is kind of afraid to touch them nowadays, especially when they are sorbet-coloured.
i actually really like this new way of posting
askallyjollychristmas asked you: I know I brought it up in conversation but here’s an ask to make it all official like: Canadian bootleg trolls in Christmas sweaters.
tavros will, in time, learn to hate winter holidays like the rest of them, once he starts associating it with getting beaten up
merry christmas everyone
thank you guys for all sticking with me through this posting drought. i’m sorry i haven’t answered a lot of asks lately, but i will in due time, i haven’t forgotten about them. some stuff happened back in july and i’ve just felt a lot more reclusive and moody than usual ever since, to the point where just talking one-on-one with friends is really emotionally draining. and i haven’t felt like drawing since then either, but i think i might be getting over that in recent days, just a bit. so again, sorry i’ve been scarce, thank you for still wanting me around despite my flakiness. also if you are reblogging for the picture (which you would) you have express permission to delete my mopey commentary because this is completely unrelated to the subject matter.
this is a picture of gamzee and equius playing ukeleles
What's Gamzee like in your Sims house?
My god, Gamzee. I think there’s something wrong with him, not in the gitchy sort of way, but in the clinically depressed sort of way. He no longer comes home from work to cry in the entryway now that he is out of the military career path, and he hasn’t been fired from his new job as a fast food “chef,” but he doesn’t go to work unless I force him so he hasn’t been able to advance either (unlike Eridan, who does go to work without fail but can’t advance because his coworkers hate him). If I don’t, he just kind of meanders around the house and nearby areas aimlessly and only comes home when he is in the red or occasionally to cook crepes. He doesn’t socialise very much and tends to creep people out when he does—maybe with stories of The War—and just generally does not take care of himself. I just feel really sad whenever I see him. Did I give him an inauspicious combination of traits? Is it because I didn’t pay enough attention to him when I started out? Is it because he was never cut out for the military and thus will never achieve his lifelong dream of becoming an astronaut? Whatever it is, I think he needs to see somebody, but unfortunately there are no therapists in the Sims.
I gave him a new hoboish outfit to reflect this, so now he is only a prosthetic leg short of a shellshocked Vietnam veteran.
God, Gamzee, I am so sorry.
forgot to upload yesterday whoops
ew hippie germs
god i want to update so bad i’m flipping to the tab and refreshing to see if there is something new up and then realising it is actually my own comic. i’ve got this uh other thing i got to do first and i really haven’t been at the top of my game this past week (weeks?? idfk) but ENOUGH IS ENOUGH i’m not going to put it off anymore even if i don’t really have the energy to do anything right now.
i am lazy so i am going to post what i said on my sburbchan thread about this stupid bloodswap (it is the same character order as in canon but rotated -120 degrees on the wheel) that won’t leave me alone:
i barfed this sketchy lineup up because people seemed to be curious about it and now that i think about it i don’t think i’ve posted anything showing anyone’s legs. equius and feferi have hats and aradia has kabuki-like face paint i didn’t bother to draw. what eridan’s shirt looks like is also still kind of up in the air; some people say they don’t like the polo and that it would look better as a button-down, but i’m not sure.
for serious i think i am going to start this mid-april; i’d have it sooner but exams and shit are making me put it off, and i still don’t have a drawing style i’m set on using. but i think i might want to do something in a similar vein to this lineup—purposely messy muted colours with this cool new ink brush i made accidentally a few days ago, not as messy as this though obviously. more to the tune of this derpy fantroll picture i did for a bro i guess. it is really fast and easy to work with which are major plusses, but on the negative side it’s pretty far removed from the source material’s style. i did think of a possible explanation for that (nepeta is illustrating it, and another character, terezi probably, might be writing) which would be cool in a sense that it would be an adventure told by a possibly unreliable narrator, but i don’t know. if i do decide on that i assure you i’m not going to use quirks in narration because that would be fucking horrible.
IS THIS A COOL THING I SHOULD DO?? opinions tumblr i want em
