    Busy, busy, busy times here at Studio Firebird for the next month or so, but at least I had time to draw and get episode nine of EVA-Trek uploaded. Pretty happy with it, it's my attempt to do a "Data's Day" episode, centered on Misato: https://www.trekbbs.com/threads/eva-trek-an-evangelion-star-trek-crossover.311690/#post-14383773

    Just FYI, there may be some light or absent weeks during all of the IRL stuff I've got going on, so worry not if I disappear for a bit. I shall return!

    Drawing 344 / 2023 Artwork 17: Kurumi from Steel Angel Kurumi. Did a rewatch of the show for the first time in ages earlier this week, and I still haven't gotten the theme song out of my head.

    Drawing 346 / 2023 Artwork 19: Lt. Maya Ibuki, USS Nerv science division. I hadn't intended on it, but I'm gradually doing portraits of all of EVA-Trek's main and recurring cast again.

    Too close? No, I've just got my very best reading glasses on :D

    The black & white/greyscale on Kurumi looks great!

    I was hoping someone would zoom in on the text. Extra points!

    Kurumi’s grayscale is a bit of a cheat. I used an assortment of browns and pinks to color the original, then took out the saturation for the final upload. Definitely think it looks better this way!

    ~ Ah, that explains why my colourblind eyes like it so much! The grey looks like colour, but my eyes can't quite make the colour out :rommie: Bravo!

    Morn!!! :adore: Is that a drink, or is he about to down some more latinum (which may explain the rather shifty look)?

    Drawing 352 / 2023 Artwork 25: Vash the Stampede from Trigun: Stampede, looking like I feel after being so busy all week with IRL things and writing the first draft of EVA-Trek episode 12 that this was the only drawing I had time for.

    Oh, dear. I hope you have a good supply of absorbant tissues on hand, just in case? I hope this coming week is easier for you :)

    Things are settling back down here at Studio Firebird after all the "fun" of the last month for me. This week, we got the newest episode of EVA-Trek posted (https://archiveofourown.org/works/45825208), as well as a couple color illustrations.

    Misato looks good in the Picardigan! Really reminds me of her red jacket from the show and films!
