Doodles (that became all tf2 related of course) because I haven’t been able to finish what I had been working on. Featuring Lady Demo, Lady Engineer, Gal Scout (and some dudescout), and some Pyro.

A doodle instead of the thing I’ve been talking about (see the last update, a preview of the WIP)… Here’s femme Heavy teasing Scout! I’ve been wanting to do trans genderbends (instead of cis like these ladies are) but I wanted to put more thought into it than I could have done today. Sometime soon, though!

I was hoping this would be done by this evening, but it’s really not there yet (in fact, it might be another couple of days). So I figured I’d at least post a work in progress, though I’ve hidden all the interesting parts so it’ll be a surprise when I post the final version!

QuestionJ. Doodz- your art is very expressive. All your characters have very open expressive faces, and tend to seem really friendly and approachable, unless you're specifically making them not. You use a lot of fluid, soft lines, which I fucking love because when you use angular lines, it stands the fuck out. And a shitton of dramatic lighting, which is lovely. TL;DR: OH MY FUCKING GOD I LOVE YOUR ART YOU HAVE NO IDEA. <3 <3 <3 <3 it is almost as lovely as your face and personality. Answer

Aw shucks, person who is totally a stranger! You flatter me!

kaisinel:

I dont usually do these, but im pretty curious, considering I have difficulty describing/defining my own style.

QuestionTell me about the pokemon you have in mind for medic! I'm really curious. Answer

Pidove and Chansey are basically mandatory. I was also thinking Vaporeon and Lapras for their high health, and Miltank to be paired with the Tauros that I was going to give Heavy. POSSIBLY Spritzee becuase it looks like it’s wearing a plague mask  (but I’m not entirely too keen on that idea). What do you guys think?

Questionmiss pauling's fave pokemon would probably be espeon Answer

Ahh yeah! I was thinking she’d have an espeon (possibly because they’re both purple?)

Pyro’s true identity… looks like the soot balls from Kamaji’s boiler room have found new work, hm?

QuestionWhat sorts of Pokemon do you think Miss Pauling would be into? I'm partial to her working with tough looking ones like Houndoom or Granbull, myself. Answer

jessiedoodles:

I appreciate that somebody’s messaging me about TF2/Pokemon crossovers! I’m at the point where I’m still brainstorming teams for the characters, and to be honest, Pauling has me a tad stuck. Some of the other characters are easier of course (some fire-types for pyro, some electric/steel for engie). I know I definitely want her to have a variety of types to reflect her versatility in working with the mercs. Not only that, but I think her entire Pokémon team would hinge heavily on tactics as well; it needs to be well balanced so she has a move for every situation. I do like the idea of her having some tough pokemon!  Interestingly enough, I actually assigned Houndoom to the Administrator (with some other evil-looking Pokémon), and Granbull to Soldier (with some other stocky, tough Pokémon). I recruited my Pokemon-minded sister to help with that! If anybody has more suggestions, or wants to see what I have so far, let me know!

Alright, I worked on the Pokemon/TF2 brainstorm list with my sister since posting this. I have ideas for the mercs, the administrator, Ms. Pauling, Saxton Hale, and Scoot’s mom. Some lists could be added to, some need to be pared down. I know there probably isn’t much overlap between Pokemon and TF2, but if anybody is interested I could post the list, plus I wouldn’t mind input! In the meantime I’ll probably do some doodles!

QuestionHave you ever climbed a tree? Answer

I AM a tree. I find this question offensive. The fact that you assume I’m not a tree… it’s a product of humanormativity in our society. Like when was the last time you saw a tree represented in a movie? Pocahontas? Yeah.

Free-range smurf bacon! I don’t dare buy that caged stuff. It’s just too depressing!

QuestionWhat is your medium of choice? Answer

Breathing really hard onto glass and drawing stuff in the condensation. I have to do it like super super fast and super a lot and I suppose that I am so taken by the artistic inspiration that I just wind up blacking out. By the time the ceiling fades into view along with a splitting headache at the back of my head, my window art is gone. That is the nature of my art: the conceptualization of ephemerality IS the artwork.
